A terrifflc cyclone swept through portions of Alabama, Mississippi and Arkansas Saturday, doing an immense amount of property damage and kill ing a number of people. The storm covered a radius of several hundred miles, destroying telegraph wires and cutting off communication with a large part of the affected country. Cleburn county, Alabama, seems to bave suffered the most severelj, the storm there assuming the proportions of a tornado. The reports of fatalities in the county vary from six to twenty, and many more are said to have been injured. At Sellers and Luverne, Ala., much damage is reported, and at Rob Roy, Ark., one man was killed and several badly Injured. Dumas, Ark., was practically wiped out of existence and several other towns In the vicinity suffered severely. One person is reported killed at Hickory Flat, Miss., and as the farm houses in that vicinity suffered heavily, it is not unlikely that many fatalities oc curred which have not been reported. Kansas Flour in the Orient. Topeka, March 16. The establish ment of a steamship line connecting with the Santa Fe railway at San Diego and touching at Honolulu, the ports of Japan and China, and event ually those of the Philippine islands, will prove of great benefit to the flour manufacturers of Kansas and the cotton growers of Texas, Oklahoma and tke Indian Territory. In discussing the matter today General Freight Agent F. C. Gay of the Santa Fe stated that within a year the establishment of a direct Pacific steamship line would make for Kansas flour almost as much of a market in the Orient as it now has in Europe, thereby nearly doubling the export shipments. It will greatly in crease the demand for cotton, and make cotton growing in Texas, Okla homaand theludianTerritory, through which the Santa Fe system runs, more profitable than in the majority of southern territory. One Death Reported. Daily Journal, Monday. It is reported in Wellington today that the daughter of Wm. Jotdan of Bitter Creek, died yesterday of small pox. The report cannot be confirmed. Dr. Martin is out of the city and a telephone message from Arkansas City awaits him. Its nature cannot be learned until he returns, late this evening. The excitement over the disease in the Bitter Creek neighborhood still continues, and wholesale vaccination is being resorted to by those who are in any way likely to be exposed to the disease. The entire family of H. J. Donahue of Portland, is said to have been exposed, and the people of that neighborhood have become alarmed. During Dr. Martin's absence today someone left the following inscription upon his slate: "Mr. Martin look after these small pox tenant & donohue has been exposed & ashton iscornteened belter look out." From the above it is inferred that the people of Ashton have decided to quarantine the town against all out siders. Ashton is the residence of Dr. Geeslin, one of the attending physi cians upon the smallpox patients. It was reported that Dr. Geeslin had contracted the disease, but the report is said to be untrue. In the next campaign, the less Re publican papers have to say about nepotism and useless legislative em ployes the better for their reputation for sincerity. There are more than 140 employes in the present Republi can houseand more than sixty of them have nothing to do and have not earned $5 since the session began. Sixty employes at $2 a day is $180 a day, and $900 in fifty days, of public money deliberately wasted for politi cal purposes. The Populists were no better; but neither were they any worse.

His task was done, and he paused to wait The funeral train through the open gate. A relic of bygone days was he. And his locks were as white as a foamy sea. And these words came forth from bis lipi so thin: "I gather them la, I gather them in. "Many are with me, and yet still I'm alone, I'm Ring of the dead, and I make my throne On a monument slab of marble cold, And my scepter of rule Is the spade I hold. I've bullded the houses that lie around In every nook of this burial ground. But come they stranger, or come they kin, I gather them In, I gather them in . "I gather them in, both man and boy, Year after year, of grief or joy, Mother and daughter, father and son, Come to my solitude one by one. Come they from cottage, or come ihey from hall. Mankind are my subjects, all, a. I. all, Let them loiter in pleasure, or toiifully spin, I gathir them in, I gather them In. "I gather them In, and their Hnal rest Is here, down here In the earth's dark breast." The sexton cessed, for the funeral train Wound mutely over that solemn plain; And I said In my heart, when time is told A mightier voice than that sexton's old 8hall sound o'er the last trump's dreadful din, "I gather them in, I gather them in." Park Benjamin. GoodBye, Rheumatism. The Right Remedy Will Banish it Forever. If you would forever be rid of he aches and pains, and some times the tortures produced by Bheumatism, you must take the tight remedy. Those who con tinue to suffer are relying upon wmedies which do not reach their trouble. The doctor's treatment Always consists of potash and mercury, which only intensify the disease, causing the joints to stiff en and the bones to ache, besides ieriously impairing the digestive organs. Rheumatism is a disordered stnto rf the blood, and the only cure for it is a Heal blood remedy. Swift's Specific (S. 8. B.) goes down to the very bottom of all diseases of the blood, and promptly flares cases that other remedies can not reach. Mr. E. K. S. Clinkenbeard, a promi nent attorney of Mt. Sterling, Ky., Writes : . "Two years ago I was a great sufferer from Rheumatism. I had tried every rimedy I could hear of except S. S.

S. S. I took eleven bottles and was entirely relieved oi an pain ana cured permanently. When I began to take 8. 8. S. I was unable to sit or stand with any ease, and could not sleep. Since taking the last dose I have had no return of the Rheumatism, and I take great pleas ure in recommending 8. 8. S to any one who has the misfortune to suffer with this disabling disease." S.S.S. is the only cure for Rheu matism, which if the most stubborn of blood diseases. It is not intended to give relief only, but by completely neutralizing the acid condition of the blood it forces out every trace of the disease and rids the system of it forever. It is Purely Vegetable and one thousand dollars reward is offered to any chemist who can prove that it contains a particle of mercury, potash, or any other mineral ingredient. S. S.

It is very hard to stand i lly by and see our dear ones suffer while awaiting the arrival of the doctor. An Albany (N. Y.) dairyman called at a druj; store there for a doctor to come and see his child, then very sick with croup. Not finding the doctor in he left word for him to come at once on his return. He also bought a "bottle ef Chamberlain's Couifh Remedy, which lie hoped would lift some re lief until the doctor should arrive, in a few hours he returned, saying the doctor need not come, as the child was much betier. The druggist, Mr. Otto Schoiz, says the family has since recommenced Chamberlain's Cough Remedy totheir neighbors and friends until he has a constant demand 'or it from that part of the country.

Bears tho 3igaudre of s) ma m m m WM I Here is an item from the South Haven New Era, which we would like to hear gossiped around and given as wide circulation as is given scandal. The item sounds strange to Welling ton peopie, and will cause a blush of shame, but it can be discussed in crowds where both sexes are present without embarassment: "Another car load of vitrified brick was received this week from Coffeyville to be used in sidewalk building and another car is to be ordered right away. The Methodist people will put in a walk of 150 feet in front of the church. The old J. R. Reii corner, now occupied by Huffman & Bonsail, will be curbed and bricked on the west and south by the township, the present owner, and the dwelling property on the east of it, now occupied by H. Vanfossen will also be taken through the same course." Rhenmatism Cared In a Day. "Mystic Cure" for rheumatism and neuralgia radically cures in one to three days.
