Estimates of the damage done by
the flood are reduced. At first they
ranged from $10,000,000 up, but now
they are all much below that sum. Th-e
greatest loss was of the sixteen bridges
across the Kansas river. The packing
house plants did not suffer severely.
The buildings are all uninjured. At
Armour's the fires were relighted late
this afternoon. Wheat and flour in the
mills and elevators were not injured,
but seventy-five carloads of grain sub
merged on the tracks were ruined.
Small storekeepers in the flooded
district are ruined and the loss on
buildings is distributed among thou
sands of owners. No first-class mod

Dr. Rudolph Schiffmann last night oc

of the assembly. A large- bunch of
carnations adorned his desk when he
arrived, and he was greeted with clap

"I feel excellent after my trip," said
Dr. Schiffmann to The Globe last
night. "The weather was unusually

Dr. Schiffmann found great interest
being displayed by Europeans in Amer

to doubt our ability to carry out some
of the great projects credited to us
by the continental journals. J. J.

with his mammoth ships was a topic
of interest with them and while com
mented on with a tone of ridicule, Dr.
Schiffmann says, there was evident
fear that the prophecy of his visit
would come true.
The Orient, Dr. Schiffmann says,
means much to American trade and
commerce, as it offers a field that is
beyond conception in extent. The peo

SHARKS AS MERCHANDISE.
American Business Men Look Toward
Tiger of Sea for Profit.
Commerce proposes now to convert
the famous and almost sacred sharks
of the bay of San Juan del Norte in
Nicaragua into factor* products.
Americans have been tempted by the
vast number and sizes of the sharks
down there and the ease of catching
them, into studying possible uses for
the monsters and they find that there
is lots of money in sharks. Indeed,
there hardly is a part of the wicked
brute that cannot be utilized for some
For instance, shark fins, when prop
erly prepared, furnishes a jelly that
makes a really delicious soup. There
is an excellent market for it every
where there are Chinese, and if it were
once offered as an American product
it would not be long before Americans
and others would relish it as much as
the Chinese do now.
The livers of sharks produce a splen
did clear oil that is very valuable, be
ing in great demand for watches
clocks and fine guns. It is held in al
most as much estimation as is the oil
obtained from porpoise and d<|jflsh
liver, which is the finest animal oil
The skin of sharks is of a beautiful
burnished gray or bluish color. It
looks like finely grained leather, be
cause it is full of tiny prickles that all
set one way. They are quite invisible
to the naked eye, but there are so
many of them and they are so finely
set that they give the dried skin its
Minute as these prickles or thorns
are, they are so powerful that It Is
almost impossible to rub the hand over
a Bhark's skin in a direction opposite
to that in which they point.
This property makes the skin valu
able for the manufature of "sha
green," and as it is both tough and
easy to work, shark skin can be used
for a multitude of purposes.

Carnival Incid|nfComes Near
John W. Oldfieli oj[ Wells, Minn.,
has visited nearly every} hotel in Min
neapolis during thejasfr^two days in an
effort to find his k-if4r Mr. Oldfiel«i
was J married at Wells' only a week
ago, to a prettyrgiil.4jjL.ihat chastened
village, and it was a love match. The
Oldfields came to Minneapolis for their
honeymoon, intent on taking in the
sights of the carnival and getting all
the fun they could out of-their first
heyday of matrimonial bliss. "
On Tuesday.evening Mr. and Mrs.
Oldfleld went to the carnival and saw
the elephant. They also saw the
camel and Oldfleld yielded "to what he
now declares to have been an insane
desire to ride the "bunting, grunting
Oont." He rode the humpy animal
once or twice up and down the well
trodden rialto, while Mrs. Oldfield
waited on the edge, of the crowd for
her husband to come back, having re
fused absolutely to; have anything to
do with camel navigation on her own
account. ~ ; -:: ;: -_
When Oldfield got off the camel he
went to look for his wife and could
not find her. He smiled at the oddity
of this little contretemps, picturing
to himself the horror of his wife if he
should be unable to locate her that
night. But as he further explored the
crowd without getting even a glimpse
of his newly wed bride, he became
excited and rushed wildly about among
the laughing, shouting people, calling
her name and explaining to whoever
asked him that he-had passed up an
excellent thing for a mighty poor one
and was reaping hi s JsHt reward.
The Oldfields are.b^h strangers in
the city and it apptiarsrthat when Mrs.
Oldfleld, who declares that she never
moved from the spot fwhere her hus
band left her for an hour, realized that
she was alone in ; the" world, at least
temporarily, she had,,remorse for hav
ing permitted her ki^b^nd to leave her
side and was mejt^d to tears. Mrs
Bertha Kerrick, of North Minneapolis,
who noticed that th« young woman
seemed in trouble,/questioned her and
learned of her pre<iiladhent. Mrs. Old
field could not tell the name of the
hotel at which she" had stayed the
night before. She.^id not even know
the name of the 'street on which it
was located. Mrs. Kerrick suggested
that Mrs. Oldfield accompany her home
and that they leave word at the police
headquarters as to her whereabouts.
After much hesitation, Mrs. Oldfield
adopted the suggestion and passed a
very tearful night wondering where
her usually well-behaved husband
could have gone. Meantime the un
fortunate Oldfield was making a tour
of all the hotels and worrying himself
into nervous prostration at a frightful
Yesterday morning when Mrs. Old
field was making her toilet she ran
across a card in her chatelaine that
gave her the clue to her original stop
ping place. Without waiting for
breakfast she hastened down town and

ered that her husband was working
desperately to find her. The proprietor
of the hotel assured her that he had
called no less than five times on the
previous day and twice already that

EXODUS OF PRAIRIE DOGS.
Myriads Held Up Train of Schooners
Bound for Pike's Peak.
Every now and* then one hears
about invasion of grasshoppers that
stop railroad trains. .The old yarn was
being unreeled the otier night on the
way down to the Atlantic highlands
when a skeptic putin his unbelief. "I
have been through several grasshopper
epidemics," he said, "and I never saw
any such thing. But I did encounter
an exodus of prairie dogs once on what
was then a prairie in Nebraska that
held up a long emigrant train for a
day and a night
It was during the rush for Pike's
Peak. It was no unusual sight to see
miles and miles of ccVered wagons
wending their way like an army to
ward what has happened to be the bet
"We had been out about two weeks
from Omaha when one of the advance
guard hurried back along the line with
the information that a drove of prairie
dogs was crossing the road a mile or
so ahead and that they were so nu
merous that the vanguard of the
prairie schooner had been stopped. A
temporary halt was made.
"No one supposed it would be of
long duration, but, darkness coming
on, we rounded up tor the night. The
next morning the line did not move
forward, nor gain an inch all day.
"Then a few of. t|g mounted our
horses rode forward tto reconnoiter.
When we got within a quarter of a
mile of the head of the line we looked
forward. The face of the earth was
"As far as the vision extended, north
and south, it was th« same. They were
moving from the north to the south—
the prairie dogs were. They were so
close together you couldn't have toss
ed your hat between them. Thv>y did
not seem to be panic-stricken, but just
moved on and on like a great cloud.
"It was the strangest thing I ever
saw. Old plainsmen said they never
saw anything like it. "When they were
first seen we turned the dogs in the
train loose upon them, but the dogs
soon gave out. Maybe there is some
sort of affinity between domestic dogs
and prairie dogs which prompted the
former to strike when it came to ex
terminating their species.
"Anyway, the domestic dogs Just
gave up the job. As for shooting the
little brown rascals, that would have
been folly. We hadn't the ammuni

Tucker two years ago there has been

After a lengthy discussion of the mat

that it will not be brought up again.

Man and Woman Afoot Nearly Escape
. Bert White, the prisoner who escaped

was captured early yesterday morning,
together with Florence Clark, after a
fight and a long and an active chase.
The officers who are responsible for the '•
pursuit and subsequent capture are Ser

The policemen heard of the presence
of White and the Clark-woman at Eigh

started to get them. The fugitives were
notified and fled. After a long chase,
with Dugan on horseback and Ginsberg
afoot and awheel, both the fugitives were
captured and locked up. White will be
sent back to the workhouse to finish his
sixty-day sentence, while Miss Clark will

Why Her Dancing Dragged.
A young man who was born on a ranch
and who. while getting his education in
the East, has turned Westward again
every summer, and has thus maintained
a flne, strong physique, recently danced
with a young woman of some 200 pounds
in a village not far west of Rahway. He
noticed that the dancing was uphill" work,
and. when it was over, sank into a chair
in the incipient stages of exhaustion. The
young woman looked thoughtlessly across
the shining surface of the floor and threw
a glance. of investigation at the corner
where the punch bowl stood.
"Doesn't it strike you that the floor is
very sticky tonight?" she inquired.
The young man gallantly denied think
"It seems to me," the young woman
observed. Then she looked down at her
foot, protruding from a silken flounce,

AMERICA HAS DEAD CITIES.
Former Municipalities Where Prairie
Grass Now Grows.
As rule, when we speak of the dead
cities of our own country, we allude to
places in which there *is little enter
prise, to cities in which the streets are
poorly kept, in which progress is not
the word. Many of us overlook the
fact that we have some dead cities of
the other class, and the Era jogs the
memory of the old while bringing to
the attention of the young the inter
esting facts of history.
It takes a mining town to die sud
denly, save in cases in which some
awful Pelee sweeps to death at one
direful breath a whole community, or
in instances in which cities sink like
bubbles into the sea.
Only a few years ago the teacher
would ask, "What is the capital of
Montana?" The urchin who is now the
father of half a dozen urchins would
reply, "Bannock City." There are now
fewer than fifty people in Bannock,
and fewer than 100 people in Virginia'
City in the same state of Montana.
Bodie, Cal., once had 6,000 people.
There is not a house or inhabitant left.
The mines played out —and where ia
Springfield. Kan., was once large
enough to build a $20,000 school house,
and to put in water works. At last
accounts there were 200 houses and
fewer than 100 people in the town, and
the hydrants were hidden in the prairie
grass. At Saratoga a $30,000 theater
finds none to tread its boards save the
wandering tramp. At Fargo Springs
the $20,000 school house bell ring's
when the wind is strong, but no chil*
dren come. These dead Kansas towns
are the fading monuments of an error
of observation as to the normal rainfall
of the Western part of the state.
At the junction of the Savannah and
Broad rivers in Georgia are now only
fields of grain and grazing sheep. Yet
there once stood Petersburg, a regru
larly laid out and prosperous town of
the days before the railroads came.
Now there is not a single house upon
the site and the wheat grows where
was the public square. The railroad
unmade Petersburg, as it has unmade
dozens of other towns, the remains of
some of which are to be found a f--w
miles from the line in Texas —Dallas
