TIIE ATLANTIC STORM.
GREAT DAMAGE STILL BEING DONE
ON THE LONG ISLAND COAST.
Many ri.MMuc Crafts Miming Sine* 8w»
day—Twenty Hen in Small Boata Sup
posed to Have Been Lost—A Schooner
Wrecked and Four Lives Lost.
NEW YORK. Oct. 14.—The fearful
storm which raged in this vicinity since
Sunday has wrought immense damage
along the Long Island coast. At Rook
away waves nearly thirty feet high are
lashing the beach, plowing far into the
sand and washing buildings and boats
out to 30a. Many pleasure crafts have
been missing sines Sunday, and it is
feared they have been lost with all on
board. George White, Alfred Kane.
Mark Tliursby and Alden Little, of New
York,hired two boats Sunday for a day's
fishing. They have not since been seen,
but one of the boats has been picked up,
and there is hardly a doubt but that ail
four have been drowned.
Sixteen Probably Drowned.
At Hollands station, on Rockavray
beach, seven boats were let out on Sun
day. They carried sixteen men. None
of them have since been seen and it is
thought the storm earned them out to
sea. As the water outside the inlet
raged mountains high, so that a small
boat could scarcely live a minute in it,
the sixteen men were prooablv drowned.
A two masted schooner sailed by Jans
Moore and having a crew of three men,
put out from Canarsie. Sunday after
noon. She was loaded with coal and
:J| bound for Baltimore. She was caught
I in the storm and the three sailors were
swept off the deck while trying to make
sail. Moore clung to a mast and was
saved, but only after drifting around for
over twenty-four hours and then at the
loss of Julius Quay, a life saver, who
went out to the vessel in a breeches
buoy and was drowned. Moore was
finally rescued. He is believed to be
insane from his awful experience as he
talks in an incoherent way and con
stantly begs to be taken back to the

MAIL DELIVERED TO FARMS.
Organized Efforts Being Made to Extend
the Free Delivery Service.
NKW YORK, Oct. 20. -An organised
effort ia under way among the farmers
to secure from congress free mail deliv
ery in country towns. The Fanners'
Alliance, Patrons of Husbandry and
other orders are canvassing the matter.
Letters have been written to congress
men in favor of the project and peti
tions to congress for free delivery are
being circulated in many parts of the
country. Farmers assert that a
daily mail delivery at their door will
add ]erceptibly to the money value of
their farms and will be worth still more
because it will keep them in tauch with
markets and the outside world and rid
life of its isolation and monotony. The
farmers are writing to the agricultural
press that this convenience would enable
them quite generally to take a daily
paper as well as to subscribe for the
local papers more liberally.
In the American Agriculturist for
November Postmaster General Wan
maker states definitely for the first time
that the experiment made by the post
office department for free delivery in
farming districts shows that the in
crease of revenue more than pays in
creased expense. He believes that uni
versal free delivery would therefore be

Threshing May Continue Until January,
But Thrre Will He Little Loss.
ST. PAUL. Oct. If1.—'TheSunday Globe
published a series of letters about the
North Dakota wheat crop, written by
farmers, merchants, threshers and oth
ers, of which the following is a concise
The North Dakota wheat crop will not
be lost, nor will it be damaged by the
wet weather to the extent reported.
That part of it yet unthreshed may lose
a grade on account of bad weather, but
this will only be the case where the
wheat was poorly shocked. All that
was well shocked or properly stacked
will be turned out in good shape. The
change in the weather has started
threshing all along the line again, and
while it may take until near the first of
January to complete the work of sepa
rating the grain from the straw, it will
all be done.

shown that since 1870, the first year

tients in the state hospitals, but the de
crease was only temporary. The rate
of increase in 1888 was 11.2 per cent. 1889,
3.1: 1980, 7.4, and 1891,8.3. Patients per
