witness of Tuesday's flood who has just
arrived from Cherokee, states it is neces- .1

of the great amount of damage done.
"Why," he exclaimed, "it is simply ter

was at Cherokee when the cloud burst

this occurred before the people could
p ossibly realize what had happened. The
Inist remarkable feature of the disaster
is that any of the people in the track of
the tilod esiaped with their lives. As
far as I know no lives were lost at
Cherokee and the immediate vicinity."
The storm rendered between three
hundred and four hundred families
homeless in and about Cherokee. 'Thhese
were being cared for in the Masonic, G.
A. IR. and Knights of Pythias halls at
Cherokee. The Illinois Central's loss is
12,077 feet of road bed and 97 feet of
piling. This does not include the bridge I
taken out over the Sioux river. Theii
amount of damage will reach a quarter
of a million dollars.
A Town in Iowa Nearly Swept Away amu

Hoo8s, Iowa, June 20.--At the Chi
cago & Northwestern headquarters in
this city was received today the tirst di
rect news from the scene of the floods on
the Maple River branch of the road. The
dispatch is from the operator at Moville,
and says the town is almost wiped out.
Water runs into the depot windows and
is up to the ceilings of all the buildings.
All the houses in the flat portion of the
town have been swept away and the rail
road turn-table is washed from its place.
There are miles of track gone between
Moville and Kingsley, also most of the
small bridges and the bridge over the
Sioux river. This destruction is now
being supplemented by another storm,
raging at present in the same vicinity
and extending south to the main line of
the Northwestern. It is raining very
hard and the storm is traveling east.
An Appeal for Help.
('ii :onumi :, Is., June 26. Five
hunired people are rendered homeless
and destitute in this city by Tuesday's
flood. The resources of the citizens have
seen taxed to the utmost to meet the
present requirements of these people and
outside aid must be given to avert hard
ship. Mayor H. D. Bloon has issued an
appeal to the public for aid and tele
gra lied the governor for 100 tents. Con
tril utions may be sent to Mayor 1lmoan
who will ackwwledge receipt and place
It in the hands of a responsible execu

MourT CARnEL, Pa., June 20.- The
Patterson Coal company breaker, located
at Natalic village, two miles north of
thes city. was destroyed by a cyclone this
afternoon and the following persons were
killed: J. N. Blossom, Hawley. Pa., J.
Bently Dodeon, Mickshiny, Pa., Richard
Roberts, Luzerne, Pa., Wm. Lodge Luz
erne, an Italian unknown and another
stranger, all still under the debris. The
breaker was located on the summit of a
big mountain about 1,600 feet above the
sea level. It ran almost due east and
west. The structure was 300 feet in
length and the highest point was 165
feet Lodge Roberts and two
unknown men were slaters and were
engaged in rooting the breaker
at the time of the accident. The other
men killed were carpnters and met
their death while employed at work on
the interior of the breaker.
Shortly after noon the sky in the north
became black and the darkiess grew in
tense. The men perched on their high
tower gazed on the advancing storm ex
pecting to come down in tine to avoid
the rain. A flsasi of lightning illumined
the horizon, a thunder-peal shaking the
ground followed, ).nd the next minute a
terrible wind-gust gathered up the
mighty structure as though it was a
feather. and, whirling it around, dashed
it to ruin. The men were mangled al
mot beyond recognition. The breaker
was one of the largest in the region, its
cupliit) being about 40,0t0) tons per
month. The cost of erection exceeded
$100x,i0. The loss falls on Wilkesharre,
Pittaburg, and Philadelphia capitalists.
It Is Within 11I Inehes of the Highest
Point iteached in to Years.
Sir. Josi-ti, Mo., June 2).- The river
has risen steadily since Saturday and at
noon today is within sixteen inches of
the highest point reached in ten years
and is still rising. If the river should
overflow the French bottoms it is ex
pected a new channel will be cut through
leaving many farms on an island and
diverging the stream from the Kansas
shore two miles. If the present rate of
rise continues twenty-four hours the
stock yards and hundreds of houses in
South St. Joseph will be inundated. The
situation is serious as to the packing
interests as well as to hundreds of small
farmers on the low lands.

This would probably be after the elec

in parliament to the late Ot'orman t

plied: "I shall certainly go to Carlow. in t
fact, I start tomorrow night if I can pos- r
sibly manage to do so. I am eonnident I
that we shall win."
This election, it may be stated, is the I
only election since the O'Shea divorce i
proceedings in which Parnell has had a
chance of winning. He will take Mr.. I
Parnell with him to Carlow if he can I

Loaxnu, June 2-.- Mr. and Mrs. Par

evening at Walsingham Terrace and re
ceived today several intimates. Parnell
has sent greeting to a number of adher

pleasure that the prolonged period of
suspense is over and thanking theni for
their steadfast friendship during his
troubles. He writes tinder apparent
conviction that his marriage will rapidly

sion prevails in the same direction in the
house of commons in spite of the know
ledge of the fact that the Catholic clergy
will not accept the marriage as cola d
ing his offense. English liberals ire
ready to hail him as the man doing his
best to atone for his faults.
Parnellites tonight did not ripire to
sound the opinion of members on th
marriage. Fronm every side congratulu

when his entree is likely to be greetel
with cheers. If the feeling in parliament
reflects the sentiment of the country the
marriage will become a big political
event. No immediate restoration of con
fidence between Parnell and the liberal
leaders is possible, nor is it probable the
faction feud will end without long oppJi
sition from some of his now irreconcila
ble enemies; but the marriage has de
prived his foes of one of their nost p'

The future plans of Mr. and Mrs. Par
nell indicate that after a period of
seculsion it is their intention to enlarge
their social life. Mrs. Parnell talks of
leaving Brighton and taking a large
house in London. If she wins the pro
bate suit she will be rich and able to
entertain. Those knowing her best say
she aims to form a political and artistic
salon to create which she has capacities
equal to her ambition. It has long been
known she has been a valuable poli
tical ally of Parnell with whom she has
discussed every turn of affairs more in
timately than with any member of his
party. It can be predicted with certainty
that under her open guidance Parnell
will immediately modify his taities. In
