The regiment to which the young men belonged is made up of the pick and flower of Louisville. Many of them were society leaders and ot wealthy families. . Captain David Castleman was riding at the side of the detail. He esaped injury. The report that, one ot the men was smoking is denied by Colonel Jo* K. Castleman of the Kirst infantry, to which battery A belongs. He said it was one of those unfortunate incidents which could not be guarded against. Governor John Young Brown, who was stopping with Major George B. Easton, was asleep. The explosion stunned him. It was some time before he could realize what had happened. All the furniture in the house was damaged by the explosion, which also sncok all the leaves off the trees in the front yard. KEYSTONE STATE NOMINATIONS Plat'orm Favors Gold and Silver With a Dol lar Unit of Equal Value WILLIAMSPOUT, Pa., Sept. 11.—The Democratic state convention adjourned tonight after niak'ng these nominaitons: State tieaSurer. ex-Congressman B.

Damaging Showers at Fresno FRESNO. Sept. 11.—The showers fall ing in this locality tonight will do con siderable damage, the exact extent of which will depend upon the character of the weather which follows. If warm and dry tbo damage will be much less than would result from cool and cloudy weather. The raisin vineyards are now full of curing grapes, in all stags of dry ing from those nearly ready for packing to grapes just placed upon the trays. Tbe threatening aspect of the weather and warnings sent out by the signal service gave the vineyardists time in which to stack their trays, but considerable loss will result nevertheless. Heavy paper is used for trays on some vineyards, and in these both trays and iruit may be practically ruined, and some reduction in the total output will inevitably follow. The only other damage in this section will be to the dry feed ou tbe stock ranges which has been very good this season but is of little value after the tirst rains.

HENRY WATTERSON TALKS Peace and Good Will Was in the Air VETERANS ON DRESS PARADE The Blue and the Gray March Side by Side Fifty Thousand in Line. With the Thermom eter Registering Qft—Two Ex-Confed erate Oenerals Lead the Procession Associated Press Special Wire.'' LOUIBVILLK, Ky.. Sept. 11.—After all the demonstrations of Jtbc week, the pa rade today was the event of the cwemy ttintb annual encampment of the G. A. U., as of all former encampments. The veterans themselves were a most inter esting feature, although everything that money or ingenuity could command in the way of warlike designs were added to the procession. Thousands of ".lohnniss" grew hoarse in cheering the Yankees along the way, ami the ladies from Louisville and frnm all paitß of the south in brilliant dress joined in the gieat chorus of cheer*. It was the general remark that there were never so main' old, lame and feeble men in line, out they proudly kept step anil "tramped, tramped, tramped, tramp ed" as if they were boys still "Marching Through Georgia." The "silent majority," Grunt, Lee, Sherman. Johnson, Sheridan and Jack son and other leaders could today have been no more at peace or have no more good will to man thsn wus felt ana sin cerely oxpressod here today and scenes were enacted that beggar all description and wipe out the last vestiges of sectional feeling. The department! began forming early under special orders to have the proces sion more promptly at lOtSO a. m. The Louisville Legion and cadets and tbe Kentucky National Guard patrolled the streets and there was no delay. The parade was beaded some distance in front of the first era-id division by two distin guished ex-con federates, on horseback, Captain John H. Weller and Captain Wiilliam Jl. Garrison. They were dressed in black Prince Al berts with silk hats and red. white and blue sashes. They also wore red, white and blue scarts and rnsette>. Captain Weller carried a large il3g. Captain Gar rison carried a large white banner of peace mounted on a staff like the Stars and Stripes carried by his comrades. In place of the eagle on top of the staff the white banner had a dove carrying an olive twig designating peace and good will to men. The number In line was estimated at nO.OOo. The thermometer registered '.Hi ana a half dozen veterans were overcome with heat. The procession moved on time to the moment to the great satisfaction of hun dreds of thousands ol suffering people along the line of march, as well as those in line. The thermometer stood at l Mi and the enthusiasm Was equally high. One hundred Kentucky horses were mounted by the committee on parade and review, and they made a chivalrous appearance. When the white caps of the escorting Columbia post of Chicago loomed up the multitudes on the platforms ant* along the streets opened tbe chorus of cheers for Commander Lawler and kept up the cheering as tne posts of the different de partments parsed the stands and streot intersections. With General Lawler on the reviewing stand were Adjutant C. C. Jones, Quar tern! 18 tei General J. W. Hurst. .1 udge Advocate General Matt Hellister. Senior Vice-Coniniunder Burrhfield. Governor Brown. Commander Fnirchild of the Loyal Legion, and they were received by the following post stnlf commanders: ii, S.

Mc Shane of Omaha Was arraigned here today, charged with conspiring with P. H. Culber, a Chicago attorney, to de* fraud the real estate linn of Bartlctt A Koaeh. The defendant* assed for an im mediate trial, but the case was continued until tomorrow. The real estato men charge that Mc- Sliane and Culb3r deliberately conspired to swindle Mem out of fboSOOO, while the cx congressman declares that he is in nocent and threatens lo bring suit for damages for falss imprisonment. McShane and Culver were arrested on a warrant sworn out by «'. K. : Harder, one ol the firm of Bartieti A Roach, real estate dealers. It is charged that the re spondents conspired to defraud tho real estate linn in tho course of a transfer if valuable property. James At wood, a janitor, and B. J. Seannell, a partner cf McSb.mc in Omaha, It is tald, will be ar ressted. According 10 ihe story oi Bartieti Roucb, that tirm was to exchange a Hat building on Ihe corner of State street and Cloud court for a number of vacant and unincumbered lots in Evanston. Brer, green and other suburbs. All the con tracts, deed? and abstract- on both sides were fully prepared and placed in escrow. Messrs. I'.artlett A Roach plated their papers in tbe bands of Peterson it Orr, real esta.ite delers, while Culver was cus todian for McShane and Seannell. AttbS solicitation of Culver all tho papers were then delivered to him in esorow. Ac cording to Barttett A Roach, ' ulver at once turned over to Seannell a portion of the deeds and the deed to the State street property to James Atwoud. a relative of McShane. and janitor of the flats. On the same day Seannell executed mortgges on hi- portion to John McShane for n nominal consideration and Atwood did the same, Every one of tho deeds and mortgages was recorded. All the alleged conspirators disappeared, it is charged, about that time and Bartlett A Roach learned that tneir property had changed hands and had been mortgaged, and they had received nothing iv exchange. Mon day they learned that McShane was in the city and subsequently he was arrested at Core's hotel. Attorney Culver was apprehended at the same plant, Mr. Hoffemian, of Gore's hotel, went on their bond in $1000 each, and they were re leased. Afi. McShane declares tbat he is the victim of a scheme and threatens to bring suit for daniages for falso imprison ment. *"Tbis is a tilaekraailing scheme," said John 'A. MdSoane, in discussing his ar rest. "I know nothing about this real estate transaction, and am in no way in terested in what Mr. Seannell bas done, it is true he is secretary of the Colum bia Investment company, but that is a corporation and his private 'leal- do not affect the company or mo. I am not in* terested a dollar in either the suburban or the State street property, and the rec ords will show that to be true. 1 shall bring suit lor damages for false arrest and perjury agaiiut ihe complainants. Tney will find 1 am a good man to stick to. *I will be with them three years from now if necessary. I expect to be dis charged when the case comes np.

Young Blown says he was unable to sic tiie vehicle approaching, as it carried uo side light-, lie was taken to his homo at . r ij:l Ceres avenue, where his injuries were examined and found net to be ser ious. The right knee was badly sprained and bruised, but he was not jtherwisc hurt. MISSING OIRLS RETURN Were Not Abducted but Simply Ran Away From Home He nisnppr'arance on Tuesday evening of 14 year-olil Maud Mryer anrl hor girl friend, Kato Ilarlund, age 12, occasioned a great deal of alarm and anxiety in their homes, anil until 1 heir return yesterday evening at ii o'clock, it was believed that they had been abducted. On the evening of their disappearance the two little girls were playing toaether at th". Kensington flats, the home of Kate Harland. At 9:30 they were found to be missing. Hupposing that they luvl gone to the l'leasnnlon on Temple street, a f«w doors from the Hats, where tbe motber nf Maud resides, no alarm was felt until it was learned that the girls were not there. A search wii* at once instituted, but the whereabouts of ihe missing chil dren could not be learned. Tte police were notified anil they and the friends of the little jirls hail been busy searching all day yesterday,when the wanderers re turned 6f their own ai cord, tired and footsore. They told a story of having been in duced to take a ride with a man who drove a covered wagon, and who took them with him to Gar van Ka, There they succeeded in making their escape while be was getting a drink. They starteii for home on foot and slept all night on the porch of a bouse between Pasadena and this city. On tne way little Kate fainted twice, and both were tborouehly ex hansted when they reached home. Whether they Were really abducted or not is difficult" to determine. A httle girl acquaintance Bays the girls told her Bom* time ago that they were going to run away just for the fun of it; and it is probable that they took an extended ride with some passing farmer and were not able to'find their way home as quickly as they expected. BRUTAL ASSAULT Little Girl said to Have Been Ravished by an Old Man James Sharp, an old man about HO years of age, wbo has been living in a little tumble-down shanty on the corner of Sacramento and Lemon ttreets, Was ar resied by Ddpttty Sheriff White yesterday evening for having assaulted a little 7 year-old girl named Gertie Moore. According to Sharp's story the child j entered his cabin several dayvs ago and j made Ihe most peculiar advances to him, exposing her person and expressing a de sire for him to do the same. This he did, though be claims not to have ravished 1 the child. The neighbors say the little , girl remained in his house for half an ' hour. When arrested Sharp was singing hymns to himself in a wild fashion. Ho maintains that his actions were ordered by the Lord and he is therefore not res ponsible. - harp has lived in this city for three years and is known to be a religi ous crank with slightly disordered mind. Rewards of Heroism He;eafter tin government will recog nize acta of heroism ou the hieh seas in behalf of citizens of the I'nited Slates by tbe award of handsome silver vases, in stead ot gold watches, eompassess, etc.. as has been the custom in the past. It has frequently happened that these watches, line shoU#b they are liavo b*eh costowed upon mariners possessing ohro* nofnetera ol a muco superior quality. The same is true oi other navigating ap paratus, which it has been customary to give in acknowledgment of valuable heroic service to American searacn. The stute department officials who have charge nf this matter have decided to substitute vases for other articles as an experiment, and if it proves successful that style of award will be adopted ns the standard. The design most favored is a tall vase, embossed at the base in imi tation of dashing waves, with an Ameri csn eagle surmounting a shield with the American coat of amis.—Chicago Chron icle. Milk Famine In Pennsylvania A milk famine now threatens tho north ern portion of Pennsylvania. tirsisshon pers are eating up the cows' food, and Texas Hies are literally eating up the cows. Milk producers of Greenfield town shin aro unable to get half of ibe supply they ought to have this time of tho year. A milk and cream dealer drove thirty miles and. outside of those with whom he has contracts, lio could not get a pint of cream. At Lenoxville the creamery is only doing one-tenth of the business it has' capacity for, because it can't get the milk. A few of the farmers have already f-one to feeding grain, nnd that helps the milk supply some. An , agriculturist named Morgan, in Ihe Welsh settlement, has twelve cows which ought to give ncary ten quarts apiece to a milking,and he milKs all oi them in one ten-quart pail, and that holds all the milk.—Chi cago Chronicle. Electricity as Fuel An astonishing discovery in regard to ; the production of electricity is announc ed, whicb. if genuine, will do away with I the necessity of burning coal. Dr. Hor chers of Driesburg, tiermany, says that he lias found that electricity is generated by the conversion of hydro-caibon anil carbonic oxide Into carbonic acid, nnd as this is the same thing that takes place In burniing coal he accomplishes the same end by chemical means by what he calls the wet process. While a steam en gine utilizes about 12 pei cent of the the oretical energy and a gus engine 20 per cent, Dr. Borchers claims that his new process gives no less than .'is per cent.

A Big Saving for housekeepers AND NOW IT IS THE "BICYCLE WALK" An Illinois physician has discovered that the present extreme- tisa of the bicy cle is fast tending to make the American people a decidedly pigeon-tool race. The constant revolving motion of the feet and lower legs as they turn the pedals lias given to the gait of those people who aie much addicted to the bicycle a peculiar turn which the progressive doctor calls tbe bicycle walk. Those who remember the days ot the rolle' skating craze will probably recall tbe effect, that exercise Dgd on "the gait of those who practiced it particularly the gait of some of the young ladies of the age to be easTy affected. Tbey took at once a rolling, swinging, half-gliding, rythmical Mep that resembles the motion of roller skat ing as closely as could be by anyone not on rollers. So it will be with the blycle walk, says the aforesaid Illinois doctor, except that instead ol being only a tcm porarv peculiarity it will become perman ent and hereditary, as the bicycle fever promises to he, whereas the roller skating tad enjoyed but a brief existence. The bicycle walk is nothing more nor less than the pedaling motion of the wheel applied to the walk. Notice a bi cyclist who is afflicted. It will bo seen that when lie lifts bis back foot in walk ing be does not put it straight ahead, but carries it back a little, as be would have to in following tho pedals, and then swings it high, almost up to tho calf of the other lei:, before setting it forward. The pigeon-toeing comes in there also, and causes the sufferer from bicycle walk to "interfere" after the manner of horses. Tho pigeon-toeing is accounted for by the position of the feet on the peaals. There the toes turn in ami down, and the heels turn up and out. the pressure being borne on the ball of the foot. Among tbe racing men tho hicyclo walk is most noticeable, of course. It has taken them in much worse torin than it bas the ordinary cyclist and extends to the swing of tho arms and tbo carriage of tne head. The elbows of the racing man bend out from the body as a result of having to bear his weight as he leans far over the handle bars. The neck and head are projected forward, too, and ttie face wears the strained, anxious express ion of a man who wants to get there as soon as possible.—l'.oston Transcript. Degeneracy a Form of Atavism Every organic innovation which bas appeared in the course of evolution had manifestly, at one time or other, to ap pear for tiie lirst time. At lirst advent it was an anomaly, a departure from tne type of Species; but it was an advanta geous departure. It was an evolutionary anomaly, and became subsequently the common property of tbe species, which wav bcnelitcd by its possession, Degeneration, on the other band, is an anomaly which does not appear for the first lime, but recurs long utter it has ceased tv be typical. It is n form of avatism. If ii were to become genera! it would cause the species to revert to stages of development long since passed. That is a fundamental difference. Healthy genius is, to ne sure, also an anomaly. If it were something universal and typi cal we should not call it genius, and it would in no wise attract, our attention. But it is an anomaly in evolution and progress. It means survival and it future. Degenerate psuedogenius is also an anomaly, but it is a retrogression,on avat istic anomaly. It means destruction and , a past.—Osntuvy. An interesting scientific mission has recently arrived at Odessa.
