The prevent mission of the HL LouU Glolic Democrat scema to be to defeat the Republican ticket in Ohio, thin fall The tow line will lind thin a bigger con tract than fulling (Irnnt through at Chicago) or Coukling at Albany. Mc- Cullagh liaa a hariulim idioyiicrany of hanging out more than he can wukIi. Jlradlcy aduiitted Tueoluy, during the courne of his examination before the iiiveatigatlng committee on the alleged brilxry canes at Albany, that he bad bc'cu nn inmate of the state inebriate any lu m at ISinghHUiplon, iu 1372, for nine months. And, come to think, there has been nothing in his Untimony thus far which j:irs with that confession. All tho Democratic newspapers of V'ir. ginlii ure forced to speuk well of the an M-Iiourbon candidate for governor. Col Cameron. Tho only thing they can say agitinst hint is that ho has deserted the Iluurlmn party. That's pretty bod, but . he is young and will doubtless be able to licur up under the burden. We venture the prediction that he will hare plenty of congenial company within a very few years. Jell Davis in his book thinks that 'the futc of armies" in battle depends on one man. Dut which one is it? When one ninn Is killed another takes his place, ad infinitum. The country thought that when Abraham Lincoln was murdered there were woes unnum bered in store for us, but even with An ily Johnson following we still lived, Tho notion that any one man Is cssen tlul to our lieing is ono of our vision ary fallacies. "I am willing to risk my reputation as a public man," wrote Edward Hinds, of tho Liverpool Mercury, "if tho worst cow of small mx cannot lie cured in threo days simply by the use of cream tartar dissolved in one pint of hot water drank nt intervals when told. It is a certain, never full i nix remedy. It has cured thousand, never leaves a murk, never causes blindness anil avoids tedi ous lingering." Kansas City Journal : Kansas topers boasted of having killed the effect of tho temperance law in advanco by egg ing on tho irimors of the law until it was made so stringent that it is practi cally inoperative. Tho prospects now arotlmtthcy will continue the egging m pmm ami I tho ranks of the prohi bitionists will bo greatly increased by ttioso who liuvo herctotoro held more conservative views of tho matter. There is such a thing aa too much defiance. Tho Half-breeds should not be too rush in consigning Mr. Piatt to eternal oblivion and in asserting that the future has no possibilities ior thut aimublc gentleman. When Mr. Conkling estab lishes himself in a luw office commen surate with his general magnificence, it is asseverated upon excellent authority that tho appointments will embrace a functionary about the si.o of Mr. Piatt, who '-Will clean II. o win. loir audgwecu the Moor, An. I piiliah up the hamlle ot tho big front iloor." New York Tribune: That Coukling petitioner, who requested ('oakling's and I'liitl's reelection 8,100 times in tho same document, bouts the South Caroli na tissue ballot operators awuy out of sight Home of them wero known to have voted 2,500 times, but .they could not get beyond that point in a single day. Mr. Michael Maloney was indus trious, but not ut all shrewd. It is evi dent that he was uot well "manipulated." Tho petitioners of the Colliding party, liko its editors, need a more skillful guiding hand thau either tho primate or the vice-president seems to possess. A stronger temperance sermon will novcr bo preached than that which an unfortunate woman of Capo Girardeau, Mo., recently delivered before her hus band in a bar-room. Setting a covered dish, which she had brought with her, upon the table, she suid : "Presuming, huslutnd, that you were too busy to come home to dinner, 1 have brought you yours," and departed. With a forced laugh ho invited his friends to dino with him j but on removing the cover from tho dish, found only a slip of paper on which was written: "I hope you will enjoy your meal ; it is tho same your family have at home." A confirmed misogynist in Iloston has been jotting down fragments of conver sation w hich he has overheard when pass ing young women on the si reels of that city. His note-hook contains 1,000 of these scraps. Out of that number 730 be gin with either "And I said to him," or "He said to me," or "She told me that bo said ;" 120 referred to dresses or hats that were either "perfectly loyely," or "just splendid" and the remainder were pretty evenly divided between com ments on other girls, who were "horrid," or"stuckup and hateful," new novels, studies, the summer vacation, the Greek play at Harvard nnd the latest scientific discoveries. Now let this enterprising stall 8 tic I au take a census of the compli mentary remarks mode about himself by those ono thousand luckless victims of hil eavesdropping.. The Kunsas City Times has apparent ly failed in It efforts to anuihilate, with its Jealous ridicule, the proposed rail road connection between Atchison and Omaha. At least it is a fact that arti cles of incorporation for the Missouri Pacific railroad of Kansus have been filed with tho Secretary of State; that the capital stock of the company is $300, 000, aud the articles ot incorporation state that the purpose of the company is to build a railroad and telegraph line beg'mning at or near the city of Atchi son, and to run thence in a northerly di rectlon to the northern boundary of Brown county, a distance of forty miles, and articles of incorporation for the tamo company have been filed in Ne braska, with a view to continuing the line northwest to Omaha. ' This is bound to give Atchison a new boom, and, employing a figure in harmony with the leading commercial interests of the towns, we shall now expect to see tho bristles fly In a lively manner be tween Kansas City and its aforesaid Kan- aaa rival further tip the river. OUGHT TO BE DONE. ! There are two thin" that otizhtto be done in regard to onr railroad bond in debtedness, in our judgment The first is. that tho county commissioners ought to be authorized by the vote of the people to sell our strck in the Missouri Pacific railroad. The stock market is now at an excited and inflated pitch. At lust quota tions, June 0, this stock was rated at from f0 to 51. It may go a little higher, and it may go a good deal lower. The commissioners ought to be in shape to take advantage -ot the highest rate they can get, on short notice, or to sell immediately if the price begins to de cline. It seems to us the proposition to authorize the sale of this stock might be so drawn as to protect the iutcrcsi of the people of the county. The only motive we have in this mutter is to see another hundred thousand dollars of our county debt wiped out while the opportunity is of fered. We should all feel that a terrible mistake had been made if the chance should go by witli nothing done. The commissioners took the initiatory in this matter on the 12th of April, siuce which lime we have heard nothing in reganl to it. We recall the fact, and wish to impress it on the attention of the commissioners and the public, that in the year 1870 a projiooitiou was made by both our roads to surrender half oar bonds, issued to them, for our stock. The commissioners then failed to avail themselves of the opportunity to wipe out one-half our railroad indebted ness. 'that was eleveu years ago, and since that oiler was made, aud it ought to have been accepted, the people of the county have paid in interest on the $300,000 that could then have been paid. $134,000 in bard earned cash. It seems to us that it will hardly pay to let another op portunity go to tell our 51. P. stock for B0 cents on the dollar. Of course we wont more than SO cents on the dollar if we can get it Dut we want all to re member if the $100,000 which can now be paid is permitted to run another ten years, it will cost us $70,000 In Interest Another thing we think miyht be done, and if it can it ought to be done immediately, and that is, our present out standing bonds ought to be replaced with those bearing a smaller rate of interest Wo are now paying 7 per cent on $249,, 0U0 or railroad bonds, or $17,430 per year. We believe Lyon county bonds can be readily sold with 4 per cent, in, tcrcst certainly with 5 per cent If tho present bonds were taken up and five per cent bonds issued the county would save tlie snug little sum or f 4.US0 per year. If tho Missouri Pacific stock could now be sold, and our bonds replaced at 5 per cent both of which can be done, tho annual lav ing to the people would be $11,080 We think this is a matter worthy the serious attention of the commissioners. They are all reported to be men who carry on their own affairs with good business judgment, and were it an ludi vldual matter they would not allow a moment's delay In putting the matter in good business shape. Tho people of the county would undoubtedly endorse any action on their part which would so materially reduce the aunual expenses of the county; THE DRUGGIST TEST CASES. Tlie arguments in the druggist test cas es, under the prohibition act, were com pleted in the supreme court yesterday, They were conducted, in behalf ot the state, by Attorney General Johnson and County Attorney Vance, and on the part of the defense by Hon. Geo, It Peck and Judge W. C. Webb. The issues wero presented by the counsel em ployed with much ability and the court room was crowded with eager spectators during the progress of the arguments. Tho counsel for the state iu referring to the power conferred by the temperance act upon probat judges, submitted the following points 1st The legislature had tho power to confer such jurisdiction upon the pro bate judge. 2d. That such duty so conferred was ministerial, and not Judicial. 3d. That the legislation confining the sale of intoxicating liquors to druggists was not class legislation. 4th. That if the court should be of the opinion thut it was class legislation, the legislature had tlie right undr tho po lice power to restrict tlie sale of Intox cutlng liquor in such a manner as pre scribed by the temperance act. Judge Webb, in his closing argument for the defense, referred to the recent de cision of Judge Crozier, of Leavenworth and said he did not agree with some of his propositions, but that he had read his opinion carefully aud he stood there to say that the legislature never did pos sess the power which it claimed to exer cise under this act. That body had no right to confer this Judicial power on tho Probate Judge. The duty thus sought by the luw to be conferred was judicial, not ministerial. Of this there could be no doubt. Judge Webb, upon this point, made an extended argument, quoting from the author ities recognized in the law, to show the important distinction between these duties. The ministerial officer simply acted under a higher authority; but un der the provisions of this act, where was there any higher authority than the Probate Court? Absolute power, by this law, was reposed in tlie Probate J udgc. He could grant a r crmit for the sale of spiritous liquors, if he chose, without regard to the character of the petition presented ; or on the other hand he could withold, if he desired, without regard to the weight of names, or char acter of the application. And from this action, however arbitrary, there could be no appeal. Not even tho power of the highest court of the state could be in voked. These cases have been followed with absorbing interest not only by tlie people of Kansas, but by friends of the temper ance cause throughout the entire coun try, and the early decision of the court on the issues involved is eagerly await eJ. The Saturday Review : "Free educa tion has far more in common with socialism than a poor law, because it is a distinct recognition of an obligation on the part of the rich to pay for giving the poor what is good for them. In the United States the elementary schools are really common to the whole community. People of all classes send their children to them. It follows from this that the question how the cost shall be borne be comes simply one of convenience. Everybody has his share of the benefit bachelors, spinsters and childless par ents being too few to affect the general conclusion and it is a matter of no moment whether, everybody pays his quoto in the shape of school fees or of a school rate. In England the case is dif tcrent Elementary schools are, in truth, schools intended for a particular class in the community, and if the en tire cost of educating children at them is transferred from the parents to the rate payers the community will pay for the education ot a single section of its mem bers." PERSONAL AMD POLITICAL. . Mr. Conkling, it is said, finds a germ of encouragement in the fact that Gen. Grant refuses to be interviewed on the subject of politics. Mr. Conkling, it see mi, covered the whole ground when he declared he would not return to the United States senate without his tail-piece, Mr. Plait There is no earthly possibility of the latter' ever being1 returned to the seat which he resigned without the slightest warrant " Tildcn is reported as saying that Pres ident Garfickl is right in his contest with Conkling. For once, Tildcn is right He thinks the Democrats should let the Conkling muss alone, snd stay wllhm lueir party lines, liut men Uie temptation for them to blunder is very strong. LATE MEWS MOTES. Diphtheria is raging in epidemic form at Ludington, Mich. The Cornell crew will be admitted to the Uenly regatta. A cyclone which killed two person is reported from Solomon City, Kas. On the night of May 17th there was an earthquake In Ilaytl. Rain fell in torrents at the time. There were several landslides and many cattle were killed. Young eels, from one to three incheB long, have been shipped to tho waters of Michigan, from the Hudson river, to the number of six hundred thousand. A Mrs. Lochard, a bride of two days. tried to kill herself at Decatur, III., be cause of her aversion to married life. She is pronounced insane. Only four pardons have been granted by Presideut Garfield, in contrast with one cacti day by Hayes. Attorney -Uen cral MacYeagh scans each application with the greatest care. Two exjx-rU were recently appointed to review the books of the Crook lvn board of education. The "discovery was made that about two bushels of papers, covering transactions for five years, had been taken from the safe. - The state department at Washington publishes a mass of information from diplomhtic representatives on the pork trade in Europe. -Minister Kasson in sists that until official action is taken at home in regard to the cause and effect of hog cholera, or trichina', we are in some degree responsible for the alarm existing; abroad. Minister Noyes ex presses the belief that not 1 per cent of American pork is affected. Minister Lowell reports that Mr. Mundellawill not permit unnecessary restrictions in England. HERE AMD THERE. '1 be man who "sees sermons in run ning brooks" is generally addicted to looking for them on Sundays when bass are biting. It has been discovered that the first phonetic speller was a Cherokee Indian Wo never had any doubt that the system was a relic of barbarism. We learn from private sources that a lightning rod agent was killed by the recent cyclone iu the Solomon Valley. Something happens every once in while to confirm the popular belief in special providences. In a quarrel between two brothers of Golden, Colorado, over the ownership of a dog, one of the disputants was shot and instantly killed. The dog is be coming a very prominent factor in the civilization of the great west Governor St. John starts this week for a trip to Colorado and New Mexico, where he will spend a portion of the summer. No one save a tew of the more extreme anti-prohibitionists, attach any special significance to Ilis Excellency's frequent absence from the state since the new temperance law went into effect The state of Pennsylvania is still laboring to secure the removal of the remains of William Penn, from Eng land, to the commonwealth which bears his name. If she succeeds she can plume herself upon the possession of the most distinguished corpse in the coun try, with the possible exception of Mr. Conkling. The Democratic party seems to be finally making a little tardy reparation for its persistent efforts during the post twenty years, to impair the credit of the nation and to cripple an honest and judicious administration of the public finances. It is now asserted, upon the authority of Senator Sherman, that the tax on whisky will pay the interest on our national debt. Lord Sutherland, who passed through Kansas some weeks ago on his way to the Pacific coast, is said to be vastly pleased with his American tour, and is reported that he thinks so well of the country as to have admitted that could not have been improved if an Englishman had furnished the plans and specifications for its creation. A woman in England has just obtained heavy damages against a railroad for her nervous system being severely shocked by the cars being brought to standstill, and by being thus thrown against the side of tho carriage, through tho negligence of a railroad employe. It was urgued that damaged good: would secure indemnity from the com pany, and how much more damaged persons. The Eureka Herald says: "From what little study we have been able to give the revised New Testament we arc con vinced that the system of profanity in common uso will have to be revised. We hope it may be revised out of exist ence." We infer from the above that Col. Ri.er is the one happy editor in Kansas whose office is never ravaged by tlie exchange fiend, and that he alone, of all his afllictcd fraternity, enjoys immu nity from the ubiquitous idiot who is a! ways popping in to tell you of a "rich one thut he has just thought of." OVER THE STATE. Riley county will build four n bridges. Hutchison liquor sellers violate the law on Sunday. The barbers of Parsons have raised the price of shaving to 15 cents. Another paper has "gone up the spout" so to speak the Hillsborough Phono graph. The female barber of Florence is making her third annual round of the Kansas press. Work on the sugar factory .at Sterling is progressing, Uio first story lieing near ly completed. Jefferson County has ayoung lady over eighteen years of ago who weighs less than thirty poun ls. Cherry valo has a new brass band and most of the citizens are moving into the country to spend the summer. We do uot suppose that we shall ever read the translation of the New Testa ment Parsons Eclispe.- No, doctor; you seem to be too far gone for that The Windfleld Courier has swallowed up the Winfield Monitor. Another "long felt want" has gone to rest in the bosom of a prosperous and legitimate journal. Contracts for the erection of the new building for the blind asylum at Wy andott have been let The last legisla ture appropriated $25,000 for the purpose. . The State Reform School building at Topcka was opened on Tuesday with three inmates all boys, two white and one black. Further accessions are an ticipated when the fruit and melon sea son fairly opens np. It is said that during the recent cy clone at Mulvane hail stones as big as a sugar bowl fell in immense quantities, and a hot wind prevailed, making it difficult to breathe and turning the leaves of the corn as black as dirt. ' Eureka Herald: Mr. Harkness is ahead on. the heavy flocco business, having a ram that yielded thirty pounds strong. This Is the heaviest fleece ever clipped in this county. Last year the same sheep yielded a fleece that weigh ed twenty-five pounds. Some idea of the terror inspired by a Kansas cyclone can be gathered from the fact that an Osage county man was driven into the house by one last Son day, though he knew his wife was wait ing for him behind the door with a rolling pin in her hand. Chase County Leaden ' Tlie . board of district 41, Strong City, (formerly Cot tonwood) let the contract to build the school, house, Tuesday evening, to the following persons: . Stone work. Emsilie & Rcttlger; carpenter work, L. P. Jen son; plastering, E. W. Brace; cornice and tin work to an Atchison firm- The building is to cost $1,700 and be com pleted by Oetolier. THE NEWS. THE STORM RECORD. The Destruction Wrought by a Cyclone in the 'Walnut Valley. Destructive Cyclone in Osage County, the Storm at Solomon City. &c Cyclone In the Walnut Valley. Winfiei-d. Kan.. June 13. The Wal nut valley heretofore has been wonder- ully exempt from destructive storms, but on Sunday evening the charm was broken, and Cowley county had a visits. tion in the shape of a cyclone, that was the most destructive in its effect of any storm that ever struct boutuem Hanson. It appeared to start on the head of Dutch Creek, and went in a northeasterly di rection. Its extreme icngln way less than twenty miles, tven in this space it did not make a clean swath, for on one side of a road the land might have been swept clean, while no injury would be done on the other side. The clouds was in a hue, a greenish black, with fire streaks darting through it, showing that it was largely electrical. It was not in a hurry to do its work, but would gyrate to and fro, and iu some instances passed over the same ground three times; but when it struck, death and destruction marked its course. The centre of the storm was twelve miles nortneast oi Winlield. at the village of Floral. Here, where it crossed Timber creek. the water was taken from the creek and scattered over field and forest ; . the leaves were withered by the heat of the fire. Great trees were taken out by the roots, and what but a few hours be fore marked happy homes and fields of era in harvested, are now indicated by the ucbris oi nouses ana out uuiiaings, and piles of straw that line the hedges. Floral presents the saddest picture. Here was a new frame church of the Christian denomination, and the tin) bora that composed it are scattered over the prairies for hundreds ol yards. Brok en columns aud displaced slabs mark the cemetery which adjoined it A large school bouse fared the lute of the church. D. Reed was a prosperous merchant He bad a largo stone dwelling adjoining. In the store was a general country stock of $3,U00. The monster struck it and not one stone was lett above another. and the stock was scattered to the four winds. Mr. Heid's loss is $5,000. In the village every house was destroyed At this writing we have a record of twenty-eight houses that are totally de stroyed, and the loss on buildings is $14,000: the loss to crops cannot be cal culated ; the loss of lite is one child dead and an old man that cannot sur vive. Fifteen other persons are suffer ing from severe injuries, but none neces- sairly fatal. The people escaped by lleeine to caves and cellars. Winfield is fearfully excited over the calamity, hundreds having visited Floral to-day. Cyclone in Osage County An Osage City Free Press extra, is sued June 13, gives the following de scription of a cyclone that visited that vicinity on Sunday: About four o'clock p. m- Sunday, dense rain cloud rose from the north west and passed over the country to ward the Marias des Cygnes river west of Melvern. At the same time a similar cloud rose from the southwest and mov ed northeasterly toward the same locali ty. Many of the people of this city watched the progress ot this storm with bated breuth as it threatened U turn and pass over it As these clouds approach ed each other there was a constant sue cession of the most vivid lightning Hashes ever witnessed, these were accompanied by the most alarming peal or thunder. The whole heavens in the vicinity of the storm appeared to be in a towering rage, and tlie turious contortions ot tnc an cry clouds, the sharp, piercing ttiun dcr and the mad lightning formed a ter ribly grand and impressive picture that those who witnessed it win never iorget This wild wrangling of the mad ele ments lasted nearly an hour, the clouds seeming to hover over one locality. About this time the mad flashes of lightning suddenly ceased, the thunders n milieu and a auric, ugiy, muddy, tunnel shaped cloud was formed about the cen ter of the storm, and as it rose and fell and began to sweep on down the river everybody turned pale and spoke whispers. Everybody knew what it meant Everybody knew that ruin and deatn would morn its course. The shape and boundaries of this cloud were well defined it was very dark and apparently 'hollow. It was formed in the vicinity of Olivet, a point on the river, in tue south part oi the county, and the first damage that we have yet been able to learn of was sus tained by a man of that place. We have just seen and talked with Miss Tweed whose brother-in-law's farm lies about two miles northwest of Olivet Her de scription of the storm is heartrending, They watched its progress, saw the formation of the cyclone, and saw it rushing wildly and madly over the country, tearing up trees, carrying off buildings, and leaving nouung but ruin inilstracK. Just ueiore it rescued mr, Powell's house he called to the family to go into the cellar, but tiiey expected it to pass by. Yet, just as it was about to puss, it turned like a mad man, caught the house up, whirled it around in the air, and threw it back upon its foundation with' a great violence, leav ing it a pile of ruins. Tlie cellar was filled with the debris and the family of fivo people crawled and crouched in corner and escaped with a few imma terial bruises and scratches. A horse was lifted out of the stable and carried over a high hill and dashed upon the ground in a corn field a mile away. Cattle were lifted from the ground, carried into the air, and dashed to pieces. Mr. Powell's fine orchard was totully destroyed, the trees being literally torn out of the ground or twisted into a thousand fragments. Miss Tweed found the works of her gold watch a quarter of a mile from the house, and everything was carried away Their furniture was all destroyed ; their bed clothes and wearing apparel nave entirely disappeared nothing but a few sheets being lelt. .Bliss i weed's clout ing was torn olf, and she has not a sin gle dress left in the world. Her trunk was lifted out of the house and was car ried olf and has not yet been found. From this point the storm moved little northeasterly, going about one mile north for every three miles east Mrs. Freeman, a widow lady, living near Olivet, lost her house and every thing in it Plauty's farm house and buildings were left in ruins. Three negro children, left at home near Olivet, were badly injured, one having since died and it is thought the others cannot live. At this writing, 2 a. m. Monday, it has been impossible to obtain all particu lars. Mr. J. Morrison, of Melvern, came in at 1 o'clock, having been over the en tire track of the storm and has furnished us with a memorandum of everything he was able to learn. The physicians at Melvern, Olivet, Lyndon and this place are on the ground, and hundreds of people are at work do ing all that can be done to alleviate the suffering. ' Mr. Rozencrants, who lives northwest and Mr. John Harper, who lives north east of Melvern, are known to have been killed. Mrs. Rozencrants, Mr. Colyar, Miss Francis Colyar, Mrs. Calkins, Mrs. John Harper, Mr. Mart Nealy, Mrs. Delvin, are badly hurt John Lee, Thomas Lee, and Win. Appier are badly bruised. A great number of others whose names we have not been able to obtain, were more or less injured. The houses and buildings of- the fol lowing named persons, beginning near Olivet and following the track of the cy clone, were totally destroyed: L. W. Powell, Mr. Brown, Philip Latta, David Duffield, Mr. Rozencrants, H. M. Aus tin, John Colyar, G. W. Briner, Jesse Lee, Mr. Calkins, Mr. Batram, John Harper, Mr. Tompkins, Mr. Delvin, J. Riggins, Robert Graham, Joseph Mar shal, James Wiley, and Mr. Maneally. Of course this list is necessarily incom plete. It has been impossible at this early hour to obtain all the facts. The Presbyterian church at Quenemo was destroyed. The destruction of these buildings is complete from roof to foun dation. The debris of each is scattered over acres of ground in many instane ea fragments are found a mile from where the building stood. Articles of household goods were smashed and ground Into atoms, and bedding and clothing whipped into rags and shreds. A large number of people who were yesterday the happy owners of comfort able homes and surroundings are to-day houseless, destitute, .pennyless, but re joicing to have escaped with their lives. The people along the river, who have escaped, have generously thrown their houses open to the sufferers, and every thing will be done that can be done for the unfortunate, sufferers. - The people of Osage county have a duty to perform, and one that will admit of no delay. The people must be pro vided for. Temporary homes mut be provided for the destitute, and those who have lost their homes must tie as sisted to rebuild them. Contributions of all kinds will now be acceptable, money, provisions, clothing, furniture, bed clothing, etc Almost every house can do something in this direction and not miss it The people of Osage county must do this. We are abundantly able and certainly ought to be abundantly willing and ready to do everything in onr power. Let contributions be forwarded to this office and everything be handed over to , a responsible committee rordistrinution. Remember this; there is no time for de lay. The county commissioners should meet at once, and any reasonable appro priation they may make to aid these suf fering people will be approved by tlie county. . we propose to start at once over the ground, and full particulars of the dam age and its extent will be published in the regular edition of the Free Press this week. That Osage county has sustained a great sudden, unexpected and incalcul able misfortune is too true now let her people be true to themselves and show the county that they are ready and prompt to extend the hand of relief to their suffering fellow-citizens. Cyclone at Solomon City. A special to the Tooeka Camtal from Solomon City, dated June Dth, says: This afternoon about 4 o'clock the clouds began to gather in the north and west and to circle about and take on changing positions rapidly. At half- past lour a small sharp point was seen to drop down slowly three miles north west oi nere till it struck tue ground. and the column continued sinking till at the base, in contact with the earth, it measured something like forty rods across and widening gradually in a most magnificent inverted cone into the heav ens, then started slowly, moving to the north and east and was watched with intense interest from this point till it passed out of sight At six o'clock the wind began to change here in a most fitful manner, blowing a gale from evcrv point of the compass within the space of ten minutes, l uen great chunks or ice began to fall with a force that was more fearful than can be described, crashing through windows, cutting the leaves and small branches from the trees, and pounding the crops into the ground. ao one who witnessed it tver saw or heard anything that equalled it Stones fell from one to three inches through. This storm did not extend, as your reporter found, more than three miles west of Solomon City. After the storm, I took the train and went to Sa lina. As we were leaving town a report came in that Air. James Rairdcn and his two sons, living north and west from here, were killed in the cyclone. When we got to Sauna, a man came in with word that O. F.Frothln ghara. h is w i fe and a farm hand were also killed. I will take a horse and start from here at four in the morning and go over the path of the cy clone and send in a full report as soon as I return. Every one here is wild with excitement, many having friends in the country from whom they haye not heard as yet. The storm or ice at boiomon City lasted about a quarter of an hour. it will not extend over a strip of country from the north west to southeast at the widest point more than four miles wide, of which Solomon City is the center. How far in length I have no means of finding out, but where it aid tall good-bye to every thing in the way of crops the beautiful fields of grain almost ready for the har vest, are wiped out.

The heavy and continuous rains of the post week havo caused the rivers to swell to tm mense proportions, flooding portions of Allegheny city ana tne soutn Side, and causing great destruction to propert and almost universal suspension of rai road travel on the roads leading from the city. The Baltimore & Ohio. Pan Handle. Allegheny Valley, Pittsburg, Virginia & Charleston and Pittsburg 6s Lake Erie roads are the greatest suffer ers, the traffic on some of these being delayed at least two days. The Fort Wayne and Pennsylvania roads are still in good shape, witn trains running a little behind time. At noon to-day mere was twenty ieei ot water at this point with both rivers rising at the head waters and a prospect of having ten feet more. Should this be true it will be as great as the flood of 1823, when the river reached thirty-five feet the highest on record. On the Allegheny river nearly 7,000,000 feet of lumber, estimated at $100,000 has been swept away. No great damage has resulted on the Monon- gahela, the coal men fortunately getting their craft nearly all out before the raise arrived. Jeffkuson City, June 11. A heavy rain storm accompanied by hail, visited this place this evening. The hail was small and did but little damage, while the rain was greatly needed, as fruits and grain have already suffered consid erably from drought - St. Louis, June 11. The southwest part of Missouri seems to be visited by the same storm that ravaged parts of Kansas night before last The wind was not severe, but an immense amount of rain and hail fell over a largo area of country, and did great damage to the crops and window glass. A water spout broke in a little valley in Bavey county, in which is situated the town of Seven Star Springs, and before the people couiu rcacn me surrounding mils, a tor rent of water rushed down, taking with it houses, tents, household goods and animals belonging to those living near the springs. A woman and five small children, and a man and two women and two children were swept away by the flood, but fortunately they all lodged in bushes and were rescued some hours after. Violent Storm in Minnesota. St. Paul, Minn., June 13. A Bine Earth City special says: "The most violent storm that ever visited this sec tion began at about four o'clock last evening. Five inches of water tell in one hour. Trees were uprooted and buildings destroyed, but no great damage to crops by hail is reported. Mr. and Mrs. Chaflee, liv ing in the town of Lura, were killed by the-blowing down of their house. The barn of J. L. Praber, in the same town, was unrooted, burying his daughter in the ruins. She was taken out in an un consious condition, and her injuries may prove fatal. St. Paui June 13 JL Wells dispatch says: "A heavy wind and rain storm passed over this section Saturday after noon between five and six o'clock, the storm coming from the east and west both meeting between Easton and Del a van, and then going in a north-easterly direction from three to five miles with the fury of a hurricane carrying death and destruction in its path. An old couple named Chafce were killed and their building blown to pieces. John R. Evans had his house and barn wrecked. L. P. Roberts' barn was wrecked and his daughter seriously injured. Reports continue to arrive and show the storm to have been very de structive, seven or eight houses and barns having been wrecked and a num ber of people injured- Anotber Futile Ballot. Albasv, N.
