Then came yesterday's storm and the towns were again plunged lrto desolation. Hundreds of families wero dilven from their homes and suffered greatly; resi dences and buildings were damaged or completely demolished. Streets wore torn mi bv tho mile, while others wero pneu high with tons of debris carried by the Hood water. Poles were upmoieu ami wires dronned to the streets, effectually blocking communication from many view points nnd causing darkness at many otn- ers.

Washington, July 2S. An Interesting col lection has recently been Installed In tho Hnll of History In tho National Museum, consisting of nrtlcles given nnd lent by Mrs. Uoorgo A. Custer, widow of llrcvet Mnjor-Oeneral Oeorgo A. Custer, U. S, A. Oeneral Custer Is probably best remem bered by his achievements In tho mnny Indian lights In which ho participated and by bis recnid as an Indian scout. The col lection Includes a memento of this phnso of his career In tho form of tho while buckskin coat In which ho 1ms been most often pictured as u plainsman and scout In his cnmpalgn against tho Sioux In IS7." nnd 1S7C, In the last of which, the battle of tho Little l!Ig Horn, ho met his death. A straight cavalry sabro of tremendous slzo Is 11W0 Included In the collection. It was a spoil of war captured by Major Drew, who presented It to Oeneral Cus ter, slnco bo know of no other man ablo ti wield such a large woTpon. It has a Toledo blade, on which Is engraved In Spanish: "Do not draw mo without cause and do not sheathe me without honor." A Virginia state Hag, a prize of tbu general's personal prowess, captured by him In 1SH1 when a lieutenant, Is also on display. It Is supposed to bo tile llrst standard captured by the army of the Potomac. One object of great historical slgnlll ennce, though ot rnther unromantlc tin turo, Is half of a white towel which figured conspicuously In the battle just preceding the surrender of General Lee at Appomattox. It seems that while Gen eral Lee bad gone to the rear of tho con federate lines to secure an Interview with General Grant, leaving General Iuig- street In command. General Gordon's division became hard pressed bv the enemy nnd called on Longs'tnet fur as sistance. Not being able to furnish as sistance at that time l.ongstrort sent Ills lnsiiector-geiier.il, Major It. M. Slmms, to suggest to Gordon the sending of a II. ig of truce to the fedeials requesting a sus pension of hestlllitles pending the Inter view between Lee anil Grant Gordon nt once dej-pnlched Slmms to the federal commander, Sherld-m, with this request. As -Major Slmms galloped tow- ard the lines of the federals hn searched his haversack for something to cover his advance, but found only a towel. This lie drew out and waved above his heart as be approached the enemy. The union soldiers caught sight of tho white towel, held their lire and under this Improvised Hag Slmms was allowed to enter the lines, where lie was met by Colonel Whlttakcr and taken to General Custer, who was In command of that part of the field. Neither of these, however, eaieil to declare a temporary cessation of hostilities Just then, feeling that they bad the advantage of the tight and held the southern army at their mercy. So Slmms was obliged to return to his own lines without accomplishing his pur pose. He left the truce towel In the hands of Colonel Whit taker, who took half of it and gave the other portion to Geneinl Custer. It was only shortly after the In cident just mentioned that Sheridm and Gordon met and established a temporary truce, which held until the conference be. tween Grant and l.ee terminated the war. Most Important among this lollectlou of war relics Is a little oval table of wood, much battered and scarred, on which Gen eral Grant wrote tho letter containing the terms of surrender of General Lee at the home of Wllmer Mi'Ian, near Appomat tox Court House, Va. Immedlatelv nftor this event the tnble was purchased by General fiherlrtnn, who gave It tn General Custer as a present for his wife. The collection also Includes a pin made from a piece of conch shell, once a but ton from the coat of General Washington, picsontcd by a relative of tho general to l'uster. Later Custer had It mounted In gold for his wife, who wore It for many yenrs us a bioocb. POPE HAS NOT REPEALED DECREE ABOUT MARRIAGES Home, July IS. The report that the Pope has repealed the decree "ne temere" Is absolutely unfounded, nor Is It likely ever to be revoked, as it embodied provi sions which have governed tho church procedure for two centuries. It Is prob able that the nilsundsrstandlng with respect to the repeal of the rtecren aroso through the suspension of the provision relating to mixed marriages In Germany and Hungary. The other provisions of tho "ne temere," however, are In full force In those two countries, while In the United States and Knb'land all the provisions of the decree without exception are still In force. Thus a marriage between Catholic nnd Protestant without tho sanction of the parish priest is null. It Is declared that possibly tho United States and ICngland may later secure a change In that provision, CHICAGO CHOWS TO 2,3S1,700. Chicago, July a.

Tho scenes that have attended the re publican cnmpnlgn for the presidential nomination are but one Indication of tho change, which Is mnrked by a hltheilo unknown Indifference, n tendency to let things tnke their conrso by an unhealthy nnd excessive solf-iippreclatloti and a general coarsening of moinl views. All these, says Huron von Unrnekow, are products: of the Inst few years. Tho moral coarsening has worked down from tho lop, from tho newly rich. An other Indication of decay Is the alleged fact that tho American Intolerance of tho drone, ot tho gentleman of leisure, Ih beginning to disappear. Suggested ns a possible contributing canso of the decllno Is the fact that1 tho birthrate among the old American fami lies la falling off, whllo It remains high among tho South European Immigrants, Tho old families of tho New England Stales and of the South have as yet been less nrfected by tho demoralizing ten dency of present American affairs than tho peoplo nf any other section. It Is. however, In the farmers of the' United States thnt Ilaron von Ilarnekow sees a possibility of arresting the down ward movement. As yet, ho snys, they hnve not been touched try the moral de cline, Tho dwellers In the country, ho declares, "represent to-day throughout the republic, tho dependable, conservative element. In which an upright Christianity and a high standard of family llfo havo been preserved; they represent tho most Industrious nnd deserving lortlnn of tho wholo population of the country." An especial word of praise Is spoken for the German-American farmers. SHE MIU LOST III ARCTIC Norwegian Whalers Bring Homa Danish Explore- and Com rade Missing Two Years.

Moral Tour Very llnd Hope at Nntloa Mrs In the Farmer. The United States has reached Its period of decline, Is announced by Haron von Harnekow, a widely traveled Ger man, who contributes to the Helcbsboto, n Herlln newspaper, an article summarlz Ing Impressions bo gained on tho latest of bis many visits to America. Articles of this nature nro not Infre quent In tho Qernuiu press, but ordliuirl ly they nro written with such a manifest animus that they deservo no notice. Hur on von Karnckow, on tho contrary, wiltes in a matter of fact way, without a trace ot antl-Amerlcnn feeling, and appears genuinely glad to be ablo to see some hope that tho decline may bo arrested. That this decllno hns begun, writes the baron, must be observed by any person who visits America after un absence of a few years, The change for tho woiso has been vciy rapid. Albany, N. Y., July 28. That the nc cldcnt to tho New iork Centrnl's Twentieth Century limited nt Hyde Park on March 13. 1912, was due to nn Irregu larity In super-elevation of the outer rail, or what Is more commonly known as a low spot In track, and not to a broken rail as was generally supposed, Is the Hndlng of the public servlco commission, second district, as tho result of a most thorough ln estlgntlon of this accident. In connection with Its report on this accident, the commission goes strongly on record In favor of a reduction In tho sliced of passenger trains, especially in winter si ason. i'he Twentieth Century In this accident was derailed whllo running nt high speed. our cars went down a 10-foot embank ment Into the Hudson river, where they were stopped by heavy Ice. A total of I t assengers and employes were Injured, all slightly. The report of tho commission states that tho breaking of tin rail referred to appears to have been tho result of tho ac cident and not the cause. All of the pieces of this rail were found, nnd the fractures wero carefully examined by the commis sion's representatives In connection with the United States bureau of standards at Washington. No flaw could bo found. Previous to tlrfs examination drop tests were made which proved tho rail to be of excellent quality, well within the limits of strength and ductility which havo been established by tho New York Central specifications, which call for moro sovere tests thnn those required by most railroads. At tho point where the accident occurred tho curve was an easy one, within tho limits adopted by high speed railroads. The outer rail was supposed to be elevated nbout four Inches to enable trains to pass safely and easily at high speed. Tho low- spot appears to have resulted In a change In tho elevation from 4 1-8 Ineha to 2 31 Inches In a distance of about M) feet. This drop Is nbout equal to tho height of tho tnglno tt uck and driving-wheel flanges, and would bo sufllclent to causo a serious lurch in tho locomotive, with a sudden In crease of pressure against the outer rail. It Is not posslblo to stato the circum stances of the resulting derailment with any degreo of certainty, as in this, as In most derailments, the destruction of track makes sura conclusions almost Impossible. It Is probable, however, that tho outer rail turned over near tho low spot, and this theory Is strengthened by tho twisted angle-bars and tho Mange marks on tho webs of tho rails. It is posslblo that tho lnsldo spikes of tho rolls may have been loosened by the passage of previous trains. and that the speed of tho train which wns derailed may havo been responsible only In a minor degreo for the accident. The locomotive was a now one, nnd was thoroughly examined and tho gauge of all wheels was measured. No defects were found. In general, therefore, there Is no avnlhible evidence to show that tho rail broke prior to tho derailment, whllo there Is considerable which Indicates clearly that n portion of the train was derailed beforo the rail started to gt to pieces. A careful examination of the track nfid equipment was mude for evidence of ma licious tampering, but nothing was found. Copcnhngrn, July 9. Capt Elnar Mite kelson, tho Danish Arctic explorer, nn4 Engineer Sversen, who left Shannon IsU and, off King William Land, on the east const of Greenland, In March, lMn, te cross Greenland, and had not been hear from since, havo nrrlved nt Aiuesund, Norway. Cnptaln Mlkkelsen nnd Engineer Sverser formed part of nn expedition, which wm organized In 1509 to discover tho depot nnd records left by Myllus Erlchscn, who, with two companions, perished In Green land In the previous rear On the remole t ion of their original object, tho two wera expected to Journey westward nnd movi down the west coast of Greenland to mcel a vessel. Only the briefest details havo reached hero outsldo of tho nows ot tho safo re turn of tho men sent to tho cxpedltloa commltteo In this city. Cnptaln Mlkkelsen and his companion reached Denmark Firth on May 20, 1010. There they found tho records, left by Krlchsen. They began their return Journey nlno days later and encountered terrlblo hnrdsMps. Several of tho dogs died, nnd tho explorers wero compelled to shoot those that remained for food. They reached Shannon Island, whenco they started, on November 20, nnd remained thorn through tho winter and tho follow. Inc; summer, hoping to bo picked up by a whaler. No vessels came, nnrt thoy proceeded to Shnmrock Island, wheTO thoy spent tho following winter. In the spring of 1912 they endeavored to make a sledge Journey to Capo Dnlton, but had to give It up owing to physical weakness. They had abandoned all hope of rescuu when th?y wero picked up by a Nor wegian fishing vefl on July 17 Ust nnd brought to Aelesund. They will eoon stnrt for Copenhagen. Althoy.-rh Captain Mlkkelsen prom ised tho men loft on tho Alabama nt Shannon Island thnt if ho Hi not re turn within a statoi tlmo they would know that he nnd Sversen hal pro ceeded westward to go around tho I northern end of Oroonlnnrt or cross It j to roach tho west coast nrttlemcnts. : It la evident that his plans fnlled nnl he wns forced to return to his start ing point, all too lat to meet th other membors of tho expedition. No spreral nlarm was cnusea when the Alabama returne3 to Denmark In 1010 without Mlkkelsen, but when i?U the West Greenlnn.1 ships also return ed with no tidings of the explorers nnd a second relief expedition to tho east const In the spring of 1911 dis covered no trace of tho missing pair, the misgivings of Mlkkelsen's friends were entirely warranted. Judging from the meager letatls of Captain Mlkkelson's movements along the east const of Greenland, bo wns singularly unfortunate In missing tho ships thnt visit that region, nnd wa-t llnnlly picked up Just m time to pre vent another Arctic tragedy.

Recent ly Mr. lirldgman received this letter from Mr. Mlkkelsen. "Copenhagen. April 10, 1912. "Dear Mr. Hrtdgmnn: Mnny thanks for your favor of March 3i and accompany ing pamphlet nbout tho Crocker land ex pedition. I have talked with the commit tee of i;jiiar"s expedition and was Inform ed thnt he, If bo Is on tho west coast of Greenland, probably will cross tho channel to Grant's land and proceed southward nlong tho east coast to the proposed head quarters ot the Crocker land expedition, because bo Is likely to meet fairly plenty of gamo In theso regions. From the head quarters ho may then cross to Smith sound to Htab. Tho committee will highly appreciate If your friends will keep a look out for my brother, but holds tho opinion that there will be only n very small chanco of meet ing him becauso the Held of your friends Is situated rather far west However, any thing the Crocker Land peoplo may bo nblo to report bearing upon the fnto of my brother will be keenly appreciated In this country. Unfortunately, the chanco of nows from this quarter Is so small that It Is not deemed of nny use to mako the matter n subject or diplomatic cor respondence.
