The Alpine Peaks of Switzerland have their counterpart in our own country, in the Sierras, the Cas cades, and parts of the Rockies. The greatest glacial peak of the United States is Mt. Ranier in Washington, more than 15,500 feet high. This magnificent mountain has 15 or more giant glaciers creeping down its sides and discharging their glacial de tritus into the Columbia river or Puget Sound. A climb to the summit of this is a mountaineering feat worthy of any mountaineer. For 25 centf Chas. S. Fee, Gen'l Passenger Agent of the Northern Pacific railway, St. Paul, Minn.will send to any address an illustarted booklet called "Climbing Mt.

No utiH in Omaha has yet been restrained by injunction from breathing, but the matter lias al most reached that limit. The most radical move was the issu ing of an iiijuni tion to restrain a woman who lived in a flat from talking so much, as her landlord claimed it drove his other tenants away. Possibly wiy don't talk too much, but we certainly all are too active and lacking in re pose. We need, almost without exception, golden grain belt beer to quiet our nerves and tone us down to slower, more comfort able living. It is pure and de licious and should be in every home.

CUTTER LETS 00 WITH AIL GUNS AMERICAN CAPTAIN WILL RE- PORT AFFAIR TO STATE DE- PARTMENT. Erie, Pa., Aug. 14. The Silver Spray, a fishing boat owned ere came into port yesterday afternoon in a badly battered condition due to an encounter in mid-lake at noon with the Canadian revenue cutter Petrel. The Canadian authorities have had trouble for years with American fish ermen who were poaching on their side of the lake, and the Petrel is kept constantly on the look-out for them. At noon she came on the Silver Spray on the Canadian side of t#e lake, and at once ordered Capt. Cbrls Chau to stop. The Petrel is a strong steel craft, and it is said attempted to ram the American boav before sht could oomply with the Petrel's order. Capt Ohau, Remembering the Fate of several other boats from this side which had been captured and con fiscated, two from Erie only last sea son, decided to try to escape, and started ahead at full speed. The captain of the Petrel, when he saw that the Silver Spray was trying to get away, opened Are witht all his guns, and before he ceased firing some twenty shots had struck her. One passed through the sir estack into the pilot house in whic. Capt. Chau stood at the wheel, and two more struck the pilot house, one of which came within a few inches of Chau. scattering splinters around his head. Two shots entered the water closet, two pierced the cabin, two split the roof, three swept the after hurricane deck, while others hit various parts of the boat. Petrel Gives Up Pursuit. The chase was kept up for some time and Capt. Chau was nearly in despair as nis cold water pump re fused to work, and he feared that his boat might be struck below the water line. He finally crossed the interna tional line and the Petrel gave up the pursuit. Capt. Chau will report the affair to the state department at Washington, as he says he was only looking for some nets which had drifted from tnis side toward the Canadian shore. A large number of American fish ing tugh have been confiscated by the Canadian government, one. however, belonging at Dunkirk, was only a lew days ago ordered returned by Secre tary of State Hay.

The effects of the hurricane oL^tJie Islaud of Jamaica were greater than at first believed. Port Antonio, on the north coast, was overwhelmed. Only six houses were left standing there. The United Fruit company's wharves, of ttces. hotel and plantations were utter ly demolished. Five of tt company's steamers, including the Sinaot Dumois, Alfred Dumois and Brightoo, were driven ashore but are lying in easy po sitionB. Port Maria, another town on the north coast, alao suffered sim ilarly. The coaBt is strewn with wreckage of local sailing vessels. It is feared that the las* of life has been heavy, thirty fatalities having al ready been reported, principally among seamen. Village* Devastated. The entire eastern end of the island has been devastated. Villages have been wiped out and public buildings and churches demolished. Thousands of the peasantry rendered homeless and destitute are wandering about seeking food and shelter. The de struction of the banana plantations has been complete and the fruit trade is paralyzed for the next twelve months. Hundreds of prosperous fruit growers have been brought to bank ruptcy and ruin. The western end of the island which it was at first supposed had es caped) also buffered considerably, though not to the extent which the eastern did. New banana plantations planted there were partly ditroyed and the orange and coffee crops were also injured. The Norwegian steamer Salvadore di Giorgii was driven ashore at An notta Bay and lies in a dangerous po sition. Several sailing Vessels Were Wrecked on the north side. It \3 still stormy and threatening and there are fears that there may be renewal of the storm. Torrential rains have in creased the misery of the poor and homeless. Thousands of houses in "Kingston were damaged, the wharves were battered and several coasting vessels were sunk in the harbor. Trade is practically at a standstill. The southeastern portions of the isl and have been denuded of crops, the rivers are flooded and many men have been carried out to set) and drowned. Considering the damage to property during the hurricane, the loss of life was comparatively small, though the present estimate is that the death list will reach fifty. Hundreds of persons were injured and there were numerous hair-breadth escapes. The property loss is $10,000,000.
