I do not nnder etand that any one has charged that the meet ing at ilayuiarket Square, and which the police attempted to disperse, was an unlawful assemblae;or that the attendants engaged in any riotous acts when interrupted. If it be bo, were not the police, instead of the an archists, the law-breakers?"

It appears that the rainfall last night was the. worst ever known in that part of the state. Shawnee Run, which runs through portions of the town, rose to an unprece dented height and from fifty to a hundred buildings were swept from their foundations and the inmates suddenly found themsejves helpless in the angry flood. A rescuing party have recovered twenty-four bodies. It is estimated tiiat a number more will be found. The storm is described as the most disas trous ever known on tiie Little Miami rail road. The nearest approach any train could make to the city was three miles. The bridges are all washed away and in places the track is also taken. Trees are blown down, fences destroyed and crops ruined.

UOMUBLE DEATHS. Xehia, O., May 13. In the midst of the storm, about 10 o'clock last night, the fire bells rang out their wild alarm. No great number of people responded, but directly the second alarm brought out the whole town. It was soon learned mat Shawnee creek, that heretofore harmless little stream, was out of its banks and sweeping every thing before it. Standing on tne banks of this mighty stream, in the rain and dark ness, it was an appalling Bituation. There was no light, and above the roar of the an gry waters and the flashing lightning and tiiunder, came the cry for help from the drowning people. Men rushed from the shore into the stream. Others ran in other directions for ropes, ladders, lights and boats. At the corner of Detroit and Water streets a bomireof store boxes, kept up with coal oil, wus built, and nine persons were rescued from the Firguson house, and also some people from theoldHeatou house. At the Main street bridge tiie terrible tide had fairly piled the debris of ruined houses in an awful mass, among which several dead bodies were found this morning. O.

PiTTsnuEG, Pa, May 15. The Chicago ex press on the Fort Wayne railway had a rough experience passing through the tornado which struck Eastern Ohio last night, lhe lightning flashed from tne time they leit Fort Wayne, at t p. m., and the ruin de scended almost steadily until Lima, Ohio, was passed. Such a storm the passengers had never seen before. The wind steadily increased in fury, and the breaking of the trees and the rushing sibilatiou of telegraph wires made a concert of wild sounds. hen about three miles from Kirby the storm was at its height. Suddenly there was a dull roar in the distance and then a cj clone tore across the level plain on the soutli side of the track, and catching a big tree tore it up by the roots, aud liung it across the cars. One limb struck the locomotive and cut the cow catcher in two. Other branches Bmash in the windows along the three ordinary cars andthetA'O pullman sleepers. 'Iclegraph poles came dancing downat the same time and rocks and bushes liew through the air in a riotous manner. The car windows were smashed to pieces, cracked and splintered and the glass flew in svery direction. The train kept on the rails and was brought to a standstill within 2o0 yards. The cars were transformed into a crowd of excitied men. The railroad men kept fairly cool. The storm continued. It is remarkable that very few passengers were hurt. At Albion, Mich., a number of stores and louses were unroofed and damaged to the extont of about $;i0,oo0. THE DAMAGE IU OHIO. Daiton, O., May 15. The latest intelli gence from througnout this county and the western section of Greene county adds to the destruction wrought by tiie tornado Wednesday night. No place in this county has yet been heard from where properly was not damaged to a great extent. No lives were lost in this section, although a great many persons were injured. A careful esti mate of the losses for Dayton and surround ing country, on all classes of property and crops, aggregate nearly z,0uO,ou0, and it is believed that the total damage in the nine counties swept by tiie flood and tornado will make at least 5,0Ol',OU more. lie Got Mis Customer. Dry Goods Iteporter, The following story is told of an en terprising New York jobber, the events having taken place 6ome years ago: lhe merchant in question, having heard of the arrival of a country trader who was j known to be a large purchaser and of un questionable credit, was resolved to get him to visit his establishment, and, once there, he felt sure he could secure him as a customer. He accordingly sent out one of his drummers, of whom he had quite a number, adapted to every taste and disposition. The one sent however, returned without success. No 2 was dispatched, with no better success, and again No. 3, and so on, until all had gone and come back without their man. The merchant now determined to go himself, and rinding that brandy and water and free tickets to the theater v.as of bo avail, for the cout-try trader did not take one or goto the other, he was reduced to the necessity of employ ing a ruse, which, as the sequel shows, was simple as well as effectual. On tak ing his departure, after a pleasant inter view, the merchant took care to commit the "iinstake" of taking the trader's hat instead of his own. Next morning, as was expected, the merchant received a prompt visit at his store from the country trader, who culled to look up the hat which he supjxjstj had been hurriedly exchanged. This was what the mer chant wanted, and through this means sold a good bill of goods and tecured a regular customer. A $23,000 hotel is to he treated at Dodge City.

The wind and rain swept ail lighter objects before them. The darkness was almost liJke night, and the peo ple lied to tne nearest shelter, with blanch ed faces, from tiie storm. The clouds seemed to graze the roofs of the highest buildings, and poured forth their appar ettiy solid masses for a time. THE SlOliU STIiUCK TBK CITY in full force about 11 a. m., and raged half an hour The streets were running rivers of water, carrying boxes, signs and other sim ilar freight blown from the buildings, or swept up by the flood. A number of vehi cles were overturned and in numerous in stances the drivers abandoned tiie horses to tneir fate and sought reiuge in stores and houses. Some hail accompanied the storm, but the fall was not great. Otherwise the loss to property would have been great from the water streaming in at the broken win dows. As it was tne windows in quite 1 number of the larger buildings were blown in aud the goods and furniture soakea. All this appeared insignificant when the full extent of the destruction wrought by the storm became known. The Lathrop school building, occupied a prominent site on the corner of Fighth and May street. It consisted of the main build ing to w hich an east wing had been added. The building has been in danger by the tower, which for some time has been con sidered unsafe. It has been twice condemed, once within a few weeks, but no action had been taken in the matter. This morning the building was crowded with children, many of whom was nearly frantic with fear over the appalling darkness and the stillness which preceded the tempest. The wind swept madly across Broadway from the west and seemed to concentrate its force in a de scent upon the tower which yielded with a crash and carrying down the heavy beli, crushed through the floor to tiie basement. The main building is A MASS OF BL'I.NS. The shattered wails still stand. The wing was comparatively uninjured, and the schol ars there were unhurt. In the main build ing, however, the Bcene was awful. The failing floors carried terrified children to the basement; where the masses of brick and beams crushed them to the ground and buried them from view. Persons near hear ing the crash made their way as best they could against the beating storm to the Bcene. The gaie quickly subsided. The work of rescue was undertaken by eager hands. Owing to the prevailing excitement, the first work was not very eihcieut, but the fire de partment and police soon arrived and an organized search was commenced. The dead and wounded were taken out as quick ly as possible and carried to the natatorium building adjoining, which was turned into a hospital. Here tiie parents and friends of the little ones gathered, each searching for her own child. Many were the heartrending cries as they recognized in the maimed and bleeding forms THOSE WHOM THEY LOVED. Among the first taken oui of the school were the dead and one or two who were maimed almost beyond recognition. Their ciothing was torn and the bodies covered with dust and water, the death prdor show ing in painful contrast with the blood stains. Many heroic scenes were faced durin? the rescue. The wounded children, some of them, seemed to have greater control than their eiders. One little girl, buried in the debris, over whom the men were busy, beg ged them to leave her and help a boy be cause, she said, he was only five years old. 'lhe scenes within the natatorium, as the little ones, bleeding and dying, were brought in and laid on rudely improvised cots, were soul stirring and touching in the extreme. Willing hands were plentiful, aud all possi ble was done to alleviate the sufferings of those who still lived. The dead were placed together upon one side. The sights were pitiful beyond ex pression. A DOZEN DEAD were taken out duringtheday and the bodies sent to their homes. Sevend of the children belonging to prominent families of the city. At 1110 West Fourth street stood a brick building in the middle of the block the third floor of which was used as an over-ail fac tory. It was conducted by liaar Bros. The first and second floors were occupied by, the Oraham paper conpany. In the factory were about twenty employes, chiefly girls. When the storm broke they started for the cellar. The building fell with a crash. Four have been taken out dead. A number of others were wounded and others are still missing. Lahorers are busy to-night, by flickering light, up-turning tiie confused mass of bricks and timbers. The county court house stands on Second and Main street. The building was erected neariy twenty years ago for hotel purposes, but when completed w as purchased by the county for 'J0,oo0 and turned into a couii. house. The building has always been con sidered rather unsaie, and trie root has un fortunately been guttering injury from high winds. The storm struck the northwest cor ner to-day blowing in the roof and a major portion of the wall of the third and fourth stories. The south wall and east end was blown into the street and Deputy Sheriff Dougherty was caught and killed. Ail the others succeed ed in getting out of the building alive. The jail is located in the basement and the pris oners escaped injury. The prisoners were INTENSELY ATiUBVf yT. but became quiet'when the crash had passed. They found themselves unhurt. Judge Stover had been holding court on the third floor and had adjourned just before the storm descended. A portion of the roof in falling struck the chair the judge had vacated. Across the street, on the northwest corner of Main, Btood the two-story buiidins erect ed in IsoO, by the Santa Fe Stage company, one of the oldest buildings in the city, from which the stages formerly left to cross the plains in the stage coaching days. T he buildin.'has of late been occupied by the tinned States engineer. Adjoining that on the west was a one story brick coffee and spice mill, owned by Smith Morfett. This building was demolished, failing over the adjoining one, and both w ere completely wrecEed. Frank O. Smith, the second part ner of the firm, was then taken bleeding from the ruins, and died in a short time. , TEI BaiDOE DEMOLISHED. The bridge across the Missouri river, op posite tne city, was blown into the river, the piers being left apparently uninjured. A great number of telegraph wires are down and Uie poles are broken. The bridge is owned by the Hannibal 4 St. Joe railroad company and was ustd by tiie H abash, the fiock Island, and tne Kan sis City, St. Joe Council iilarls roads. The bridge authorities say they expect to repair the damages in ten days. Meanwhile the roads wiil make temporary arrangements for the transportation of freight and pas sengers. The W abash will send its trams over the Missouri Pacific road, via Sedaiia and Moberly. The following is a list of the killed and wounded; as far as collected at 10 p. m.

The next meeting of the association to be held at Wyandotte, Kan., in May, lo7. A few weeks ago the board of railroad commissioners concluded arrangements with tiie railroad companies of the state for double decking cars for the shipment of sheep, charging for a double-deck shipment 25 per cent, in addition to the single-deck rate, and requiring the shipper to uut in the extra, deck. This extra deck would cost from $8 to $10. The board, in response to a request from the Union Pacific Railway company, have issued the following opinion relative to double-decking sheep cars: It appears that the recent decision of the board is not fully satisfactory respecting the meth od of providing double-decks for cars for sheep shipments. That instead of al lowing or requiring the shipper to provide the deck and put it in the car at his own ex pense and upon his own responsibility, your company prefers, itself too prepare the cars for .double deck shipments, charging the shipper 5 per car for the deck and putting the same in ready for use. You prospose to supply yourself with a sufficient number of ready-made decks to meet ail demands, and keep the same at convenient points ready for use whenever called for by shippers. The board has duly considered your proposition and it meets their approval. We estimate that the material for the deck would cost the shipper from $3 to er car and not less than 1 to put it in. In most cases after being used it would be thrown aside and lost, and the best disposition that could be made of it after being once used in tne car would not bring the cost of the deck to the shipper if he put in by him, below tne sum at which the company now proposes to furnish it. It would obviously be sometimes inconveni ent for the shipper to supply tiie decks him self, either from the lack of appropriate material at the locality of shipment or the ueli.y or inability to aiwayi get a carpenter promptly to perform the labor.

STOCK AND FARMING Manhattan IuJustrialuit: Not one Kansas farmer iu twenty, we are confi dent, owns a bed of asparagus in good working order. And yet there is no crop on the farm that will give 10 per cent of the profits that the asparagus bed yields. The asparagus crop is not affected by dry ' whether or superflous moisture; it never fails, indeed, from any cauae in Kansas, and, from our experi ence and observation, it is a perennial of the most pronounced character. (We are now cutting a tremendous growth of as paragus shoots from a '"bed" set out about ten years ago.) The attention required by a well set plantation of as paragus is of the slightest character; the ground about the plants should be spad ed up thoroughly each year, and all the manure accessible may be worked in, for this plant is a gross feeder; and if each epriag the brine remaining in the otherwise emi'ty pork barrels be poured upon the asparagus bed, it will flourish in a way that will shame the traditional gre?n bay tree. Lawrence Herald Tribune: Four years ago Mr. P. P. Phillips took pos session of his present place north of the city. He was a hrm believer in tne theory that Kansas can raise fruit and lots of it. He planted 2,000 cherry trees, 800 apple tre. 200 peartreee, 2U0 plum trees, 200 peach trees and four acres of grapes. To-day a prominent horticulturist of this city said that he had never seen such a marvelous growth as Mr. Phillips' orchard had made in seven years. . Everything is in good condition. The cherry trees are loaded, and financially the return from this sum mer will be immense. The whole or chard is healthy and vigorous. Mr. Phillips is one of the best fruit growers of the state, as is certainly proven by the way he has transformed raw prairie into a bountiful orchard in the short space) of four years. Clay Center Dispatch: Peter Rotten a farmer in a small way. Ha lives at the edge of the city and owns but three acres cf ground. He has that well improved, keeps a cow, raises a 25 calf and $100 worth of hogs every year, has a rye pas ture, 100 fruit trees, a nice little home and money loaned out all in four years. He loaned a farmer money last year to pay taxes on 1G0 acres, which the bor rower had "under cultivation." Peter is a worker. He makes and saves; cutting his garment according to his cloth; al lows nothing to go to watte; feeds his stock and shelters it from storm and is getting rich. An ambition to own a great big farm has made many a poor man in tin's county. There is more glory in owning a three acre lot unin cumbered than a whole section of laud knee deep under a mortgage. Pratt Center Times: Thousands of fruit trees have been set out in the county and in this city. They hive about 98 per cent of them, commenced growing finely and will make a vigorous growth through the summer if properly cared for. The attention necessary is to cultivate the sod around them thorough ly after every heavy rain as 6oon as the ground is dry. enough. This will pre vent baking and the rapid evaporation of the moisture. If you let your young orchard grow up to rank weeds and the soil get hard and dry, your trees will die and the fault will be yours and not the nurseiymen's who sold you the stock. Stafford Democrat : The principal reason that fruit is scarce in this county is because the trees and plants have not been set out and cared for. A visit to the farm of some of our thrifty farmers is only necessary to convince anyone that this is one of the best fruit countries in America. Those who have been here the longest are the ones who are putting out the largest orchards. Lowrey Bros., of Lamed, Pawnee county, have bought of Hill & Blanehard at llton, Iowa, for $2,500, the Bashaw 6tallion, Tom Kirkwood. He is said to be the best and finest stallion owned in eastern Iowa since the death of Green's Bashaw, and has a record of 2:29. Caldwell Journal: John A. Blair has returned from a week's stay on the range south of here. He reports grass good, cuttle shedding off well, and oil in dications good for an early beef crop, a gooa can crop, ana a prosperous year ior tne range interests. Columbus Star; Thoroughly har rowing Email corn is known to be effect ive in destroying the first crop of weeds. If those who find the web worm at work on their com will try harrowing as a remedy, we think they will kill nearly an worms ana save the crop. Freeport Leader: The chinch bu;g, it is said, have made their appearance in considerable numbers in some of the wheat fields of this county, and but for a timely rain, we fear that great damage would have resulted from their ravages. Republic county, wheat ia about one half plowed up, the other half thin ; one tenth of com planted, not up; grasses doing well; early wheat good, late is bad; commencing to plant com; oats good; grass fine. Halstead Independent: The fruit prospects in this vicinity are most flat tery for all kinds of fruit, except peaches. The peach crop is an utter failure, but all other fruits promise to be abundant There is a good prospect for a large crop of oats and com in Morris county this year, as the acreage sown ex ceeds that of any other by at least 20 per cent. Leavenworth county, wheat is about an average; upland poor, valley good; one half of com planted und etand good; oats increased, and looks well; grass splendid. . Brown county, wheat ia growing nicely; badly winter killed; one-tenth of corn planted; mora oata sown than usual and looks well ; grasses very fine. Jackson cotmty.wmter w heat is eickly ; spring wheat better; half of corn planted; grasses good; corn not up, oats good; some rod clover winter killed. Clay county ; wheat looks badly winter killed, and, what is le-ft, backward; nine tcnths of com planted, and not up; oats increased; graoees good. Osborne county, wheat good but thin, but Lt.le com p-iduUad, net up; oat 3 fair; range pasture backwards. A Ce-iip cf tie istltctcd Uid otliwi tl. y , L I - - LATEST VAIIKETS.
