President Hughitt of the Northwest
ern Is Not Optimistic.
New York, Sept. 9.—President Mar
vin Hughitt of the Chicago & North
western railway, who is in town for a
few days, had his attention called to
an estimate by the Price Current of
Cincinnati that a corn crop of 2,000,
000,000 bushels might reasonably be
expected. He said:
"That estimate seems too optimis
tic. In Ohio the weather has been
quite different from that experienced
further west and this fact may have
had something to do with the optimis
tic outlook from Ohio. It must be
remembered that some of the corn
states get almost Rocky mountain
"In the west, there were, during the
growing season, some of the most ex
tensive wind and rain storms ever ex
perienced there and they were not
only hard on the growing crops, but
the cold, raw weather continued so
long that it affected the harvesting
"The whole season has been excep
tionally unfavorable and has put the
corn crop behind. In order to get the
estimated crop of corn now the coin
•states will have to be favored with
the best kind of weather, and the
titae to experience its effects is get
ting less each day. I regard the next
three weeks as pivotal in the matter
of the corn crop."
Fort Leavenworth Soldiers ^Aid in Car

Leavenworth, Kansas, Sept. 9.— A
grand stand erected on a knoll on the
Fort Leavenworth reservation gave
way yesterday afternoon during a
sham battle by regular troops. None
,were killed. Many of those injured re
ceived broken legs. The stand was
put up in the morning. Fully 1,500 per
sons crowded onto it.
There was a heavy artillery duel
with "siege guns. Three battalions of
infantry were using black powder.
Some one announced that the caval
ry were emerging from a ravine to
charge. People on the grand stand
jumped up to see them through the
Hundreds who were walking on the
ground rushed to the grandstand to
to look for relatives. The confusion
was indescribable until the regular
soldiers formed a line and kept all
back not injured or caring for .those
The battle, which was at its height
on the opposite side of the road, was
called off at once and the soldiers act
ting under the direction of their of
ficers began taking care of the Injured.
Ambulances were used to convey
people to the city hospitals, and within
an hour after the accident the Injured
had all been removed.

After a Pleasant Trip Through Part of
Canada, Including a Ride Up the
St. Lawrence, Ottumwans Reach
Kineo, Far From Civilization.
It is not in accordance with the
general way of thinking for a western
er to go to the extreme eastern part
of the United States to search for a
spot so far removed from civilization
and business that deer and other
animals cross the tourists' path daily,
but this can be done and it is doubtful
If anywhere in the west can be found
a more sequestered place than th*t
visited by the editor of the Courier
this summer. At present Mr. Lee, ac
companied by Mrs. Lee and little
daughter Laura, and Miss Blanche
Garner, is at Halifax, N. S., but be
fore- going there they spent a week
at Kineo, Me., after a pleasant trip
through a part of Canada before reach
ing that haven In the Maine woods.
The trip and the Kineo woods are
splendidly described in the letter from
Mr. Lee to the Courier.
Letter From Kineo.
Kineo, Maine, August 25, 1903.
Dear Courier:—Here we are in the
Maine woods, on the shores of Moose
head lake, twenty miles from the rail
road. Mountain, lake and forest are
all about us—the scenery Is magnifi
cent, the air is glorious. Truly vaca
tion days are full of healthful delight
in this beautiful spot. Here is one Of
the best summer hotels in the country,
and the sportiest golf course in New
England. Mountain climbing, canoe
ing, roaming in the woods fill out the
days and furnish enough healthful ex
ercise to create a^slmply appalling ap
petite, and to cause one to easily Sleep
ten to twelve hours at a stretch, with
an occasional afternoon siesta thrown
in. For perfect rest and healthful out
door life I have never found a more
genuinely satisfactory place than Kin
eo. We came here tor a week as an
experiment, not knowing what we
would find. Now that our week has
almost expired, it is with genuine re
gret that we take our departure, and
we do so with the fixed determination
to come here another season for the
entire vacation period.
Should Begin at Nigara Falls.
But before telling specifically of the
manifold attractions of Kineo, let us
speak first of the trip .here, which
proved to be an unusually enjoyable
one. For many years I have wanted
to take a sail across Lake Ontario and
down the St. Lawrence river from To
ronto to Montreal. In this country of
magnificent distances, with its scenery
of surpassing beauty and grandeur,
there are many splendid trips to be
taken, but few are more interesting
or more full of hourly enjoyment than
this. Almost every mile of the dis
tance has historical associations, con
nected either with the early French
occupation and regime, or the later
stirring events of the war of the revo
lution. The trip should really begin
at Niagara Falls, from which point it
is 800 miles to the sea. Nowhere on
the American continent is there a
more picturesque region. Niagara it-

self. Is one of the wonders of the
world, and is usually the place first
visited by tourists who are desirous
of seeing this greatest of nature's
marvels, and "doing" the grand tour
of the St. Lawrence. Leaving the
falls of Niagara, then crossing Lake
Ontario by steamer, or rounding its
western extremity by rail, Toronto,
the second city of Canada, is reached
then embarking on one of the magnifi
cent new steamers of the Richelieu
and Ontario Navigation Company, fol
lowing the course of the lake to King
ston, thence down the St. Lawrence
river, threading in and out of the
Thousand Islands, shooting the rapids,
stopping over at Montreal and Quebec,
and finally reaching the Saguenay riv
er, the incomparable grandeur of
which forms the crowning glory of
this grand trip.
Having previously visited Niagara
Falls, and having two years ago seen
Quebec and the Saguenay, our present
steamer trip was confined to the lake
and river ride from Toronto to Mon
"Queen City of the West."
Leaving Chicago In the Canadian
Pacific's through Montreal sleeper,
which runs via the Wabash railroad
as far as Detroit, we reach Toronto
at 8 o'clock the next morning. Our
steamer sails at 4 In the afternoon and
we have the day to see beautiful To
ronto, which the people of Canada
with good reason call the "Queen City
of the West." It is a modern city of
200,000 inhabitants, is the capital of
the province, the seat of several col
leges, and has beautiful streets, parks
and buildings. Its municipal building
is the finest that I have seen in any
city. A day in Toronto is a day of
pleasure and four o'clock, the hour of
sailing, comes all too quickly. One
stop is made during the night at Char
lotte. the lake »port of Rochester,
N: Y„ and at 6 o'clock in the morning
we find ourselves at Kingston, Ontario
at the outlet of the lake and the head
of the St. Lawrence river. Kingston
was first settled by the French 231
years ago, and here it was that the
brave and intrepid,Count de Frontenac
built a massive stone fort, giving It
his own name, which still attaches to
the county. The fort was alternately
seized and occupied by the French
and English, until It was destroyed by
the latter under Colonel BraJstreet In
1758. It was again rebuilt under the
name of Fort Henry, which it retains
today. Leaving Kingston in the early
morning we launch out upon the silent
bosom of the irtajestlc St. Lawrence.
Beforte us lies the entry to the sinu
ous channels of the famous archipel
ago of the "Thousand Islands." The is
lands- divide the river into three chan
nels—one on the Canadian side, the
middle channel, and one on the Ameri
can side, so that some of the islands,
are in the United States and some in
Canada. They extend down to Brock
ville, a distance of some fifty miles.
They number in all about 1,700, vary
ing in size, shape and appearance
from a small barren rock projecting
from the surface of the river to large
fertile areas of land, crowned with
richest of foliage' and lofty trees.
Many of them are- ornamented with
summer residence^ Ararying in style of
architecture from the modest cottage
of "the camper to -"the tnagnificlent
castle of the millionaire. The beauti
ful and romantic scenery of these is
lands, the advantages of, boating, fish
ing and camping, aqd the purity of the
atmosphere^ contribute tpwards mak
ing this region one of the-most delight
ful of America's summer pleasure
Stop at Clayton, New York.
We stop at Clayton. New York and
at Prescott, Ontario. The latter city
is nearly opposite the city of Ogdens
burg, New York. At Prescott passen
gers change from the lake steamers,
which are too large to run the rapids,
to the river steamers, with commodi
ous observation decks. Between Pres
cott and Montreal there are no less
than seven rapids in the St. Lawrence
river, varying- in length from two to
ten miles. The "shooting of the rap
Ids." as the descent by boat is called,
is a most exciting experience and must
in fact be experienced In order to be
fully appreciated. A contemporary
writer describing this experience says:
"Before us is a seething mass of
churning waters, rushing with head
long speed down a declivity, which
stretches ahead, apparently without
termination. Each moment we feel
ourselves being farther drawn Into the
Charybydis jaws of the mighty current
among its angry darkling eddies, past
jutting headlands, close to insiduous
rocks while the roar of the surges,
the foaming spray that dashes over the
vessel, intensifies the excitement caus
ed by her swift downward and undu
lating movement. With her steam
almost shut off. she dashes in among
the waves that seem to advance up
hill to meet her, and she Is carried
along by sheer force of the current, at
a speed of twenty miles per hour, past
what seems to be dangerous places,
amid the ocean roar and tumult of the
lashing surf.v
Safety Insured.
Four fnen are kept at the wheel to
insure safe steering, and as a result
of the precautions taken, fatal acci
dents are unknown. The steamers in
returning up stream go through.locks
and canals, which are provided at
each of the rapids, as It would be im
possible for them to stem the current.
The most exciting of all the rapids
are passed just before reaching the
city of Montreal. They begin below
the town of Lachlnp, which is nine
miles above Montreal. Lachine is of
special historical interest because It is
associated with the name of
who, about the year 1670, obtained a
grant of land from the Seminary of
Montreal, and here formed a settle
ment, giving it the name of Lachine,
by which it has been known ever
since. It was LaSalle, who during
his wanderings in the land of the Illi
nois Indians, first selected the present
site of Chicago as a suitable one for
a trading point. But even his pro
phetic vision could not conceive of
the? mighty western metropolis that
would In two hundred years be built
on that spot.
Montreal is reached at 6:30 lr, the
evening, our ride of 200 miles down
the St. Lawrence river having occu
pied just 12 hours. It Is a trip that
should be enjoyed by every American
Montreal, the commercial metropo
lis of Canada, te a beautiful city and
is, always Interesting. Landing, as
we did, almost on the exact spot where
the brave Maisonneuve, its founder,
sprang ashore on that eventful
teaWMI T-r-1
night in May in the year
1642. The description of that birth
night of Montreal, by Parkman, is one
of the most exquisite pieces of de
scriptive writing in the English lan
guage. Certainly no one should visit
Montreal without reading Parkman's
"Jesuits of North America."
In previous letters I have written
of Montreal. Suffice at this time to
say that two enjoyable days were
spent there, after which a night's ride
on the Canadian Pacific railway
brought us to Greenville Junction,
Me., at the lower extremity of Moose
head lake. An early morning boat
ride of twenty miles brought us to
Kineo, at the foot of the bold and
beautiful'promontory known as Kineo
mountain, and here we are.
At Kineo.
Kineo is far up In the Maine woods,
over 150 miles almost due north of
Portland, and is just a night's ride
from Boston. Kineo, the mountain, is
a bald promontory jutting out from the
east shore of the Moosehead lake and
leaving its flinty face a thousand feet
straight up from the level of the water.
From this lofty vantage ground the
whole great expanse of Moosehead
lake, forty miles long and two to eigh
teen miles wide, is spread out in pano
ramic loveliness, with bays, headlands,
islands all In sight. There is forest,
forest everywhere to the eastward,
northward and westward, with wind
ing streams and lakes gleaming like
silver in the sunlight.
Magnificent Hotel.
The Mount Kineo house, located on
a norrow strip of land jutting out into
the lake from the foot of the mountain,
is said to be the largest inland water
hotel in the country. It will ac
commodate 500 guests and is a magni
ficent hostlery. The appointments are
strictly first class and the prices ex
ceedingly reasonable for the service
given. Certainly Manager Judkins and
his staff of assistants understand the
art of caring for their guests, and ren
dering their sojourn pleasant from be
ginning to end. The house is full and
at first one wonders what there can
be way up in the woods of Maine that
attracts so many people every season
and makes them anxious to come
again. But a brief sojourn here soon
furnishes ample explanation. Here ev
ery kind of wholesome outdoor sport
can be had in the freedom of a natur
al mammoth play ground. Early in the
season there is superb fishing. Later
there is camp life in the deep wilder
ness which has its charms for every
true lover of nature. Parties go from
Kineo to the head of the lake and then
plunge Into the region of marvelous
picturesqueness and sport unbounded.
There are regularly mapped out canoe
trips, ranging in length from 27 to 231
miles, and the tourists can hire guides
and buy or rent at the Kineo store all
necessary equipment and supples for
such trips. This is the closed season
for game, and until October 1 there is
no hunting save wtih the camera. The
latter, however, is .great sport and
many superb snap shots of deer, moose
and other game are secured by enthus
iastic kadokers. As an instance two
wild deer crossed my path the other
day less than a mile from the hotel.
On October 1 the. hunting season op
ens and then It Is that hundreds of
men (and some women, tool hasten
joyously to Maine's forest fastnesses,
where some of the grandest rifle sport
in all America awaits them. For the
special accommodation of sportsmen
an annex of the Kineo hotel is kept op
en the year around. Jt is reliably stat
ed that the amount of moose, deer,
bear and small game In the Maine for
ests is remarkably great, and is actual
ly increasing, rather than decreasing.
To the western man it Is indeed a
strange experience to go east into one
of the oldest states of the union and
find an almost unbroken and untrodden
wilderness. A. W. Lee.'
Counterfeit Silver Dollars, Halves and
Quarters in Many Localities.
Iowa Falls, Sept. 8.—Spurious coin
has gained general circulation in east
ern and central Iowa, and hardly a
town or city is free from the presence
of bogus coin as far as It can be learn
ed. Sliver dollars offer the best coun
terfeits and in most cases it Is easy
to detect the difference from the genu
ine. Questionable quarters and halves
are also in general circulation, and it
Is evident that a gang of counterfeit
ers are at work pushing out the bad
coin through various avenues.
Why Do They Cure
When Others Fail
Because they have spent years in
hospital and post graduate courses.
Because they devote all their time to
the treatment and cure of chronic dis
Because they have the latest scien
tific appliances with which to cure.
Because they use the medicine that
will produce the best result regardless
of cost.
Their method of treating rheuma
tism, deep seated inflammations of
joints, muscles, nerves, periosteum,
liyer, kidneys, bladder, ovaries, etc.
consists in, forcing the medicines di
rectly into the diseased parts (not
with a syringe) but by magnetic influ
ence produced by an apparatus made
for that purpose. It is harmless. It
is painless. It cures. The medicines
are placed on metallic plates, covered
with cotton. You can see it pass
through the part being treated from
one plate to the other.

Amount and Soundness of Final Year
Depends Upon Warm and Dry
Weather—Excellent Progress Made
in Fall Plowing—Soil is Good
Des Moines, Sept. 9.—The deep
green of the "Good Old Summer Time"
is still in the Iowa cornfield, and Di
rector J. R. Sage of the United States
weather and crop service bureau says
the price of corn bread this winter
depends on the amount of good dry
heat the country gets during the next
few weeks.
In his weekly bulletin, which ^Waa
issued yesterday afternoon, he says:
"September opened with nearly nor
mal temperature and generally favor
able conditions for farm operations.
The nights were quite cool, but there
has been sufficient warmth by day dur
ing the week to maintain the growth
of vegetation. The corn crop has
made fair advancement, but most of
the fields still show the deep greep
color of midsummer, and the ripening
process has not tteen sufficiently rapid
to allay the feeling of anxiety as to
the future safety of the crop. The
final output, as to the amount and
soundness, depends upon warm and
generally dry weather the balance of
this month. Excellent progress has
been made in fall plowing, with the
soil in good condition. Threshing re
ports indicate a very large yield of
timothy seed. The late potato crop is
doing fairly well except in low, wet
soil. A very satisfactory crop of fall
apples is being harvested and market
