A List of the Pecuniary Losses It has Caused and the Great Number of Killed and Injured. its TKiuurio ronci: is i:xpi.aini:i) (Detroit Free Press. Ujon tho havoo and tbo horrors that nro wrought by tho dreaded cyclone, nothing could bo written that would rondcr moro vivid tho tcrriblo impression mado UKn tho minds of tho 1n this oountry by tho rccont ravages of tins destroyer. Its power is appreciated, and tho uttor helplessness of man beforo this wondrous forco evolved from tho mechanics, of tho ntmospbero is fully apprehended. How this torror among tbo winds Las laid wasto vast stretches of territory, destroyed billions in property, sacrificed human life beyond computation and caused sorrow most poignant from tho rcanlt of grief and want combined, is a story that is lost in tho region of tradition, and must ox-tend to tho very dawn of creation. From tho ttandpointof tho scientist, wo of this day know much moro than thoso who earlier oncountorod tho flcrcoDCBS of tho cyclono, and looked upon it as the supernatural agonoy of somo monstr 01 wickedness; but wo aro at its mercy as wcro they. Wo now havo tho accepted theories of tho cy clones, tornsJoes, waterspouts, hailstorms and Other elemental disturbances, but the 'cyclono is beyond that point where human OE.N10HAND K.NOWLEDdE Can provido successful prevention or resistance And even as to thoso theories, so far as they bear upon tho origin and operation of tho cyclone, thcro aro yet somo conflicting viows to bo reconciled and somo accepted ideas that seem at times to bo set at defiance by tho crratio twister. Tho term "cyclono" is of com paratively reccut origin, having been adopted 49 years ago by Mr. ridding- ton, of Calcutta, in his "Bailor a Hornbook," tho word being of Greek origin and signifying "to whirl round." Tho term was so felicitous that men of scionco adopted it to designato tho violent rotary storms to whioh it is now applied, and tho word soon found itself firmly established as part of tho English langnagc. Though tho world had boon having these destructivo visitations through all tho centuries of its cxistenco, it was not nntil between the years 1635 and 1840 that investigations wore prosecuted which showed that tho cyclono has two motions, revolving with marvelous rapidity, and at tho samo timo rushing through its forward course Tho O E.N Elt ALLY ACCEPTED TIIEOItr Of tho oyclono is this: Tho florco rays of tho sun in the tropics so heats and rariflos tho lower air that it follows tho inovitablo law of gravity and nscs.wbilo tho colder and hoavior air rushes in to fill tbo partial Vftonamthus created. Tho rotation of tbo earth produces tho revolving motion of this sweep .of tho winds, a theory confirmed by tho faot that south of tbo equator oyolones rovolvofrom left to right, liko tho hands of a clock, wbilo thoso on this sido of tho equator as invariably rovolvo from right to loft.

It is worthy of noto in tins connection tbat tbo pearanco of theso storms is almost as crratio as their courso and tho strange freaks thoy display. In 1830 tbero wero ton important cyclones, whilo in 1870 thcro were but two, and in 1881 there wero four, in tbo succeeding year a liko number, whilo in 1833 tbero wcro nine, 1884 following with four, and this continuing in tho low figures for years. It is inferred from this by many scientists that the popular boliof that cyclones aro on tho inoreaso and that tho clearing away of tho forests is inviting them, is withont foundation in fact. There is a falling off, and then an increase in theso devastating visitors in which no law or rule from which predictions can bo made, has yot been discovered. It bos been most forcibly and con clusivcly demonstrated, howovcr, that this is a oyclono year. The month of May will long bo remembered as freighted with calamity in which tho oyclono has rLATED A LEADING PAST. lleforo dropping this subject it is as well to say that many scientists olaim that tho storms which occur in tho United States are not cyclones, but tornadoes. This is a question for thorn to dotermine, for tho difference is in the origin and in tho manner of moving ovor their resistless courso, rather than in any of tho consequences for which they aro responsible. They both havo tho rotary motion, both havo tbo gyrations, and henoo both are twisters. But thooyolono has the lamer baso in proportion to its volume, a faot which causes moro friction wbilo moving along tho earth and in consoquenco a slower forward motion. Bo they oyolones or tornadoes, it is a caso in which thoro is little in a namo. In any ovent thoy aro voritablo monsters of de struction.

Murdered a Number of Children by Strangling and Threw Their Little Bodies in the River Thames, MAI)U SKVEHAI. SUICIDAL ATTEMPTS London, Juno 10. Mrs. Annio Dyer, tbo baby farmor, of Reading, who was arrested on April 0 on tbo ehargo of murdering many infants intrusted to her care, was hanged in Newgate prison at 0 o'clock this morning. Mrs. Dyer was ono of tbo most extraordinary criminals of tho age, a wholesale, cold-blooded murderess. Tho polioo first becamo suspicious of her and her son-in-law, Arthur A. Palmer, early in April, when the bodies of a number of children, apparently strangled to death, wero recovered from the river Thames, whero tboy had been thrown, weighted down with brioks, An investigation led to tho arrest of Mrs. Dyer and Palmor. Letters found in her house showed tbat many of tho parents with whom sho and her accomplice had dealings' wero awaro of tho fato intended for tho infants. Theso letters wero from persons in all ranks of society. The Coroners had long boon puzzled at tho fact that so many bodies of infants wore found in tho Thames between Wapping and Battcrsca, some of them naked and othors wrapped in old linen or brown paper, but all of them weighted down in somo way or otbor, and all of them evidently strangled to death. The pre liminary examination developed a most horrifying condition of affairs. It was proved that sinoo Christmas at least twenty children had been Intrusted to Mrs. Dyer's keeping, and of this num ber only four wero then living. In ad dition, prior to Christmas, many other children that had bcon plaoed in the woman's charge wero unaccounted for and aro admitted to havo been murdered. A conservative cstimato places the number of children killed at forty, but other estimates havo it that as many as ono hundred infants wore either strangled or drowned by Mrs. Dyer. Mrs. Dyor and her son-in-law lived in Reading, whero they had a great reputation for piety. Ovor the door of her homo was a figure of Jesus Christ, beneath whioh was the inscription: "Suffer littlo ohildren to come unto me, And forbid them not, for of such is tho kingdom of heaven." Mrs. Dyer has been arrested upon four previous occasions, but somehow she not only managed to escape punishment but succeeded in maintaining her reputation for piety. But in court tho woman's nerve entirely deserted her. Bho had a dejocted, terrified loos and apparently was in despair and saw tbo gallows ahead. The baby farmer was a gannt, yet fairly good-looking woman of abont thirty years of ago, and she seems to have derived quite a good inoomo from her crimes. Three ohildren were found at Mrs. Dyer's residence when she was arrested. They wore a boy soven years of ago, a girl of eight ytars and a boy of tbroo months. There is littlo donbt that they would havo gone tho way of the other oharges of the baby farmer had the latter not boon arrested. Bomo idea of tho oxtent of the busi ness dono by Mrs. Dyer may bo gathered from the statement that baby clothes woighing noarly 600 pounds wero found at her honso whon ths polioe mado tho first search . A box containing tbo decomposed body of an infant was also discovered in tho woman's dwelling, evidently having been placed there while sho waited an opportunity to throw it into tho Thames. Littlo by littlo ovidenoo against Mrs. Dyor was gathered. A largo pieco of brown wrapping paper, in whioh tho body of ono of tho infants was found, was identified by a railroad porter as being tho covering of a parcel whioh ho dolivcrod to tbo prisoner. It was fur. ther provod that Mrs. Dyor started on ono journey with a baby and a carpetbag, and that when sho returned she had tho bag, bnt the baby was missing. In all coses, Mrs. Dyer insisted upon boing paid boforo taking charge of an infant, sums varying from $50 and $500. Sho also made considerable money by pawning or soiling tho wardrobes with whioh noarly all tho infants were furnished. Tho particular prey of tbo baby farmer wero singlo women who had boen misled or sorvants and poor working-women who were nnablo or unwilling to tako oaro of their ohildren. In such casos, Mrs. Dyer vTould writo that sho was glad to havo tho ohanoo of having a "dear littlo baby to bring up and call borown, not for tho sake of money, but for tho darling's oompany." In somo instances parents tried to gain possession of their children. But whon tboy becamo too pressing and danger was in tho air, Mrs. Dyer would move, and tho parents, genorally too poor to employ legal assistance, would give up their attempt. Lato in April Mrs. Dyor made a writ ten oonfossion, admitting the murders of whioh she was aooused. It was to introduoo the plea of insanity in her defonse. She was examlnod lator by a physioian employed by tho home offloo and was deolarod to be sane. On May 31 Mrs. Dyer was indiotod for mnrder, and on tbo following day sho was sentenood to death. In prison Mrs. Dyer mado several attempts to commit auioide. At Reading she tried , f to strangle horsolf with her shoo laces; somo timo lator sho tried to forco 0 handkerchief down hor throat, and upon another ocoasion sho attempted to out her wrist against .a piece of iron. Tho baby farmor's last attempt at snicido was on May 20, in Nowgato prison, when, while lying in bed, apparently asloop, sho twisted a handkerchief around her throat and almost succeeded in strangling hersolf. John Clark Ridpatn on the 200-Cent Dollar. IuDiANArous, Ind,, Juno 10. The following was writtonby tbo eminent historian, John Clark Ridpatb, in response to an inquiry by Frank Horan, Chairman of tho Dcmooratio Central Committee of tbo Fifth In diana District, as to whether Mr. Ridpath would run for Congress on a Democratic ticket. Ho had always been a Republican. "Thero is just ono great question before tho American peoplo and that is whether thoy will bo compelled by tho international gold conspiracy, having its bifurcations in London and New York, to transact their business, and in particular to pay thoir debts, with a cornered dollar worth two for one, fraudulently substituted for a dollar of tho law and tho contract, or whether they (the peoplo) will reclaim their right to transact their business and pay their debts according to tho terms of tbo contract and according to justioe. A OnKAT FALSEHOOD. "It is said by tho emissaries of tho gold propaganda that thoy who advocate tbo restoration of our coinage and money to exact condition which it hold prior to tho act of 1873 aro dishonest; tbat they wish to coin 50 cents' worth of Bilvcr into a dollar and compel creditors to accept that in liou of an honest dollar. Than this, thero never was a greater sophism and falsehood. What tbo peoplo desire, and what thoy intend to do, is to coin a hundred conts' worth of silver, that is, a dollar's worth or 371 J grains of silver, into a dollar, and by tbat act to break tbo corner on gold and reduco tho exaggerated purchasing power of that metal to its normal standard. "If any man daro say tbat 371 grains of pure silver aro not a dollar's worth, let him be challenged with tho question whother that amount of uncoined silver will not purchase as much of tho average of 25 of the great staples of tho American market, including real cstato and labor, as tho samo eilycr would purchaso 35 years ago. Let him answer that truly, or forever afterward hold his peace. As a matter of fact tbo unooincd silver in the American dollar will buy more of tbo average of our great staples than tho samo would buy in 1875. riuisEs oovnitNon Matthews. "What then? Tho limited supply of gold in tho world has bcon cornered by thoso who own it. They aro few-very fow and the people are millions. Tho nrico of tbo cornered gold has advanced moro and moro nntil it has beoomo worth almost two for ono. All tho while ooined gold has ooncealed tho fallaoy that is in it. Tho gold eagle still proclaims itself $10, although it has advanced in purchasing power until it is nearly $30. Under this obsenro and fraudu lent process all productive indus tries havo been ornshod to tho earth. Thoy who labor in the fields and shops havo boen virtually ruined. "Tho olaim that gold ooin is tho 'sound monoy,' the 'honost money' of tho world, and tbat silvor money-real, primary silvor monoy, on our old statutory ratio is dishonest and unsound money, is the most false, as it is tho most adroit, proposition ever put forth by interested parties to defraud tho people of o great nation.

The Feenllar Fashion In Which lie Showed Ilia Faithfulness Always Acted Aa U Ills Wife Was Still With Ulru Tho Story Told hj a Hotel Cleric Tho Sun reportor was leaning In a graceful attitude against tho counter of an up town hotel office, conversing in an insouciant and nonchalant manner with tho haughty and imperious clerk, as reporters always do, when a nice looking old gentleman, with jast enough provincialism in his appearance to show that he was not a Now Yorker, though ho might havo como from Philadelphia or any other rural district, camo up to tho register as if ho bad boen thcro andwroto his namo nnd address. In n few minutes tho olerk bad sent him off to his room with a bellboy and resumed Ills conversation. "Queer old chap," ho wild, nodding in the direction of tho departing guest. Tho reporter whirled tho register around to look at the namo. "x"es?" ho replied questloningly. "I sco that ho has signed himself nnd wife Whcro's tho wife? In tho ladies' parlor?" "Thafs tho queer port of it," continued tho clerk with tax evident purposo of telling a story, and tho reporter interested. "Thcro Isn't nny wife. Ho's a widower, and has been for 15 years, but ho has been signing it that way for tho ten years I havo known him. Ho is now CO, and was married nt 40, and the romanco is as pretty as it is pAthetic. " "And unusual," ventured tho reporter, "if ho is faithful to tho memory of ono woman, and that woman his wifo. Widowers nro not nil so. " "Tbat is why this one's story Is tho moro interesting. Let mo tell you. At 25 ho was a poor young clerk In a western town and was romantically and deeply in lovo with a pretty girl of 20. It may bo said that sho was in lovo with him, too, but ho had queer notions, and as they wero both poor, and a rich man was anxious to marry tho girl, ho never told his love, but let concealment, liko a worm in tho bud, feed on his damask check, as It were, and ho pined in thought and with a green and yellow melancholy sat, liko pationco on a monument, whilo tho other man married her. "At 84 sho was a widow and poor, for her husband had dissipated his and our friend hero, still a bachelor and as much in lovo as over, was a successful merchant. This timo ho was braver, for ho was possessed of tho sinews of war, and within a year's timo he had married her. It was rather hasty on hex part, possibly, but ho had waited long enough and was so importunato thnt sho compromised with him on ono year instead of the regulation two of widowhood. They came to this hotel on their wedding tour and wcro hero two weeks, and ono of tho proprietors of tho hotel informs me that ho never has seen a oouplo moro suited to each other and better satisfied with each other. After that he camo to tho oity in tho spring and autumn to buy goods, and sho always accompanied him, and thoy seemed to bo no farthor away from tho honeymoon season with each recurring year. "At last, after tho fifth spring trip, ho did not come, but his manager did, and ho said that tho wife had died and tho husband's mind was affected, though they hoped ho would como around all right in time. In tho following spring he camo again, but ho was not tho soma man any more. His mind was clear on all business matters, but ho was 'queer about his wifo, and a sadder faced man couldn't bo found anywhere. Tho old olerk, who had boen at tho counter on his previous visits, was thoro whon ho camo again, and after greeting him pleasantly turned tho register around for him to sign it He respondod as usual, and when tho olerk looked at the namo it was followed as beforo by 'and wifo, ' as he had been accustomed to sign it Tho clerk was about to call his attention to it, but a second thought prompted him not to notice it and he sent the guest to tho bridal chamber, the room ho and his wifo always occu pied, as they di&on their first visit "JDuring bis stay 01 a week no nod very littlo to say, nnd If any reference was mado to his wifo he responded as if she were still alive and was with him at tho hotel. At the tabic, too, ho hod a place for her, and her meals wcro served as if sho had boen thero to eat them. When ho was ready to go and camo for his bill, it was mude out as usual, and he paid for two poople without comment Ten years ago, when I camo into tho office, I received my instructions concerning our peculiar guest and huvo sinoo my first meeting him acted with him exactly as if ho wcro accompanied by his wife. I bavo learned that ho follows tho same course iu all that bo docs in any way connected with her. He buys two railroad tickets, two theater tickets, two places in any conveyance, two everything, whero she might have gone with him, and on trips whero the would not have accompanied him in life, such as short trips from his town or to affairs of any kind where It wo probable sho would not havo cored to go, ho provides only for himself. Ho stems to understand what sho would bo doing all thsso years and acts accordingly. You noticed him sign that register and go off up stairs?" conoludod the olerk. "Well, ho does all tho rest in the same confident way, just as if sho were with him and his first consideration Was for her."

This will be good news to many teachers who feared a curtailing of tho school terms, and tho loss of a month or bo's salary. Tbo Superintendent, however, liko overyonejelso.now foresees a big reduc tion in per capita to bo fixed for tho next school year. It will probably bo from $3.80 per capita to as low as $2.65. Tho Beports of census-takers aro now coming in and enough have beon re1 oeived to show that thero will bo an in' crease, if a email one, in tho number of school children reported, as compared with last year's report of 727,723. This fact in connection with tho reduced revenue for school, as well as other purposes, and in tho fact that somothing liko 8175,000 must betaken from it to make up tho present deficit just referred to, will easily can so the big per capita reduotion.

St. Louis Republic! It is a wiso step on tho part of the friends of Mr. R. P. Bland to bring into prominence tho completo record of his publio career. That the Missonrian is tho logioal Democratio candidate should tho Chicago Convention adopt a straight 10 to 1 platform, is universally conceded. It is admitted that no other man so definitely represents and is so prominently identified with tho cause of freo silver ooinago. But Mr. Bland's record will show that ho is not a man of one idea. Ho is an all-around Democrat who has plaoed himsolf in tho forefront of battle whenever Democratio principles havo bcon assailed, or whenover it was necessary to assault Republican policies in opposition to tbom. But there is still another sido of Mr. Bland which makes him an irreproachable candidate' His character in both publio and private lifo is unassailable. He is a man whoso honesty is unflinching. After 20 year's of publio service be is a plain farmer, as poor in pocket as when be entered Congress. Ho is a modest, honest gentleman, whoso sympathies aro wholly with tho common peoplo. No man is mentioned for tho Presidency whose eleotion would moro emphatically signalizo a return to Demo cratio simplicity in tho office of chief execntivo than that of Mr. Bland. He could be depended upon as President to view the questions of legislation and of execntivo policy presented to him from tho standpoint of publio welfare as he understands it, and to measure them by tho rod of Dcmooratio principle. t Dr. Bell's Anti-Pain cures diarrheas and summer complaint, cramps, oolio and rains by healing the inflammation.
