The engagement is announced of Lieut. J. E Normoyle, of the regular army, and Miss Emma Eckers, daughter of Samuel ' Eckers. of El Paxso. Tex. The young officer is a Rock Islander and has hosts of friends here who have known him from boyhood . L ist evening at 8 o'clock occurred the marriage of Miss Mamie Sass to Albert Herbert, Rev. A. C. Mennicke officiating. The ceremony was performed in a cottage on Thirty-ninth street, which has been furnished by the groom. Only a few intimate friends were present. It is understood one of the South Rock Ialacd commissioners has repented of his position with regard to the changing of the road at the watch tower, and ia wil ling now to accept Mr. Louderback's erms. It is to be hoped so. The corns smsiocers ougni to De heartily ashamed of their attitude, for they have ignored the wishes of three-fourths of the prop ertp holders of the township. Jay Gould passed through Rock Island - las: night bound for the Rockies. Be is the special guest of the Rock Island road, to which fact the Chicago papers attach considerable significance, holding that it is an evidence of not only a reconciliation between Gould and Cable, but the exis tence of a friendly feeling between them. Owing to the non-return of the appli cations from the bead physician on ac count of the temporary absence of that official from his office, the date of the organization of the new M. W. A. camp at Rock Iil and is posponed until Saturday evening, August 1, at 8 o'clock. A letter from Head Clerk Hawes says, ar rangements to insure an Interesting and entertaining exetnplflcation of the ritual will be made. P. J. Louer has sued the Davenport Times for $15,000 for defamation of -character, resulting from and article pub lished in the Times of June 18. wherein was contained Mr. Louer's statement that he had insulted a man's wife, and further that the husband had come to his office and threatened his life, and also that the wife had shaken hands with him, stating the insult was excused. The Davenport & Rock Island street railway company began moving the tracks to the middle of the street on Mo line avenue east of Twenty-third at 2:30 this morning, the right hand track being Used in Millions of Homes rreaB Baking spliced and moved out by moonlight, as far east as Twenty-fourth street. The men brought their breakfast with them. Tomorrow morning the other curve and track will be moved for the same distance and both will then be moved together. Rapidly as the men worked this morning' they did not get through by the time for the opening of the service, and cars were unavoidably delayed some time in conse quence. Fans which are operated by electricity are being put in the passenger cars on the fast trains on the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road between Chicago, Mil waukee, St. Paul and Minneapolis, and between Chicago, Omaha and Sioux City. The fans are placed at either end of a car, and by their use H is claimed the temperature of a car can be reduced over 20 degrees. This is only one respect of many in which this great system excels in caring for the comfort of its passen gers. Accommodations are as frequently subject of compliment and as seldom of complaint on the Milwaukee as on any of the great trunk lines of the east, where luxuries are supposed to abound more plentiful than they do out hete beyond the Mississippi. Peer ttiasa. Officer Glass, of Rock Island, is prob ably furnishing more fun to the square inch than any other man in this senator ial district. Some of our Geneseo boys who attended the Forepaugh show caught onto it, but most of them didn't. While the procession was passing through the streets, an old man driving a mule followed it. He was a hayseed from Pos semedunk. He had a bag of oats and a bag of hay in his wagon, also a jug from which he occasionally refreshed himself. He wanted to know of the crowd where the circus grounds were, and which were the ele phants. A swarm of laughing men and boys surrounded him, as be moved along at the side of the procession, staring about in a great state of wonder and ad miration at the gorge dus parade. Officer Glass approached in a great state of of ficial dignity. He grabbed the old man's mule by the bridle, and told the old man to consider him under arrest for obstruct ing the street. Then the crowd screamed. and Officer Glass began to look wild, "He's one of de clowns, ye fool copper," yelled a gamin. Then Officer Glass be gan, in tne slow, methodical manner of an .officer of the law, to recall various occasions when he had seen men dreesed as countrymen in the circus, who attempt ed to perform, and finally peeled off their clothes while the country girls faded out of sight behind fans and umbrellas, and nearly drowned themselves with red lemonade; while the supposed country man proved a performer in disguise. Officer Glass let go of the mule, and van ished around a corner, amid the derisiye jeers of the multitude; as the "old farmer" said, "who was that fellert Bet he wanted to steal my hay! Or perhaps be wanted my mule. I wouldn't part with that air mule for an elephant." . When Officer Glass comes down town now, he scowls, as through a Glass darkly. Geneeeo News. The Fierpait Raera. Free port will sustain its well known reputation as a racing center by giving a Bummer meeting, August 4, 5, 6 and 7. 1891. For this meeting the association hangs np $5000 in purses.and has adopted the popular five per cent entry, which they originated, and which has found favor among leading horsemen. This guarantees large fields and fast races. In addition, the P. H. Butler combina tion will each day give their four-horse chariot races, umbrella races, mile hurdle races, ten mile races, lady riders, chang ing horses each mile and many other in teresting events. With this combination are the Misses White and Williams, the champion lady riders of the United states. All railroads give excursion rates that week to the races, and the Freeport meet will no doubt be the meet of the season. I.ok Out Tor Hint. . The business men of Amboy were taken 'n the other day by a bogus advance agent for a circus. He visited that town and gave it out that be was the advance agent for a large circus. He made con tracts with a lumber merchant for bill boards, with the butcher for meat, and with a grocer for groceries, and then bor rowed $100, which was to be paid bsck when the circus struck the town, but the circus has not yet arrived in Amboy, and the bogus agent is no doubt working the same game in other towns.

IIUIN WROUGHT IN THE OAT FIELDS Itonsaajas Reported to the Extent of Million, of Dollar. Cherokee Gets As other Dose of Flood Another Bridge Wrecked and the Railways Washed Oat Thirty-Six Square Miles of Terri tory Swept Over In Dakota Damage Elsewhere. Des Moines, Ia., July 83. Reports re ceived from various points in cerajtnl Iowa show that great damage was done to'.the c ate crop by a severe wind and rain storm ear ly yesterday morning. Very few farmers liad harvested a portion of .their oats, but the loss can be said to be general, almost total, and to aggregate millions of dollars. If the storm was as severe all over central Iowa as it was in this vicinity it will be a severe disaster to the farmers and a seri- c us loss to the general business of the state. The storm was very short in dura tion, exceeding not a half an hour, but the wind blew a gale and rain poured down in sheets. Farther Havoc at Cherokee. Cherokee, Ia., July 33. Cherokee county was visited yesterday morning by a most disastrous rain and wind storm, e nly equalled by the great flood of June 13. Tuesday evening a terrific rainstorm set in, accompanied by hail and high wind, which continued up to 4 o'clock yesterday morning. Railroad creek in this city at tained a height of only two feet lower than last month, when it wrought such terrible havoc. Much alarm was felt by the remaining residents on the flat, and many of them deserted their homes. Two residences, which were moved from their foundations by the former flood, were yes terday morning carried into the Sioux river and dashed to pieces on the Second ntreet bridge. A Bridge Swept Away. Many timbers and ruins saved from the former storm were swept into the river i.nd lodged against the bridge, which went out at an early hour yesterday morning. Two other bridges in the city were also tarried away. There are washouts on the Illinois Central railroad between this ointand Sioux City and also on the Cherokee division of the Illinois Central north and south of here. Corn and small Krain have suffered great damage by hav ing been flattened by the heavy rain and winds. Swept Over Thirty-Six Miles. Ellesdale, X. D., July 23. Meager re ports from Tuesdav nieht's hailstorm In this and" adjoining counties show that the damage in Dickey county is not so serious as feared. A strip three miles wide and twelve miles long was swept by the hail, but in a part of the county not extensively 1 armed. 1 he damage to crops will not exceed 1,000 acres in this county. In Mc- fnerson county around estport the hai! made a clean sweep and several thousand acres are reported to be beaten into the ground. Crop prospects were never finer in this part of North Dakota, and Dickey county promises to be the banner wheat county of the James River valley this year. Harvest will begin in two weeks. Help is scarce and there is much appre hension on that account. Along the Illinois Central. .Watebloo, Ia., July v A heavy storm extended along the Illinois Central's lir .'S from this city west to the Missouri river at an early hour yesterday morning. At Cedar Falls a barn belonging to C. T. Round, and containing 1-W tons of hay, was destroyed. Oats all over this section were badly lodged by the storm. Bail Cnts the Corn Crop to Pieces. Concordia, Kan., July 33. A disas trous hail storm a mile wide passed through the northern part of this county yesterday afternoon, cutting the corn crop all to pieces. 1 ne storm was severest tie tween Wayne and Hoi lis. It spent its lorce before reaching Norway. Hail Cause. t 100,000 Damage. St. Peter. Minn., July 33. The hail storm which passed over the western part of the county on Sunday laid low all the crops and caused a loss to grain estimated at 1 100,000. 1 he losers were uninsured. A YOUNG GIRL MURDERED. Her Throat Cut From Far to Ear by Robbers. Hazeltox, Pa., July 33. Lat timer, a small mining town four miles from here, was yesterday the scene of a most brutal and cowardly murder. Mrs. Garoyer wenthuckleberrying at an early hour in the morning and left her daughter, Mary, aged 13, at home to attend to the baby. Upon her return shortly after noon time she found the doors bolted and upon forcing them, found the dead body of her daughter lying on the floor in a pool of blood, with her throat cut from ear to ear. At her side lay a big butcher knife. At first it was thought that an as sault had been attempted, and that the murderer lulled the girl to cover the crime. - Robbed of All Their Savings. But this is not sustained upon further examination. It is supposed that a man entered the house to rob the family of their savings, which were very large. The box containing the savings of years is gone, and it is supposed the robber was caught in the act by the girl, whom be m ordered to conceal his identity. There ia no clew to the robber.

Remarkable Epidemic Among the Little Brutes In South Carolina. Charleston, July 33. Last fall th country around Pineopolis, a suburb of this city, was demoralized by reports of ravages of mad foxes. News was received yesterday to the effect that the disease has spread through the' country, and it has become dangerous to travel through the woods. A planter from Ten Mile hill re ports that the woods in that region are full of mad foxes, asd the negro popula tion, which is very dense around th phosphate mines, is in a state of panic. Many persons have been attacked by rabid foxes within the past few days, and thus far thirteen persons have been se verely bitten. Had to Fight for His Life. Yesterday William Fraser, a negro, had a desperate enounter with one. The fox rushed at him and a lively fight ensued, the man being unarmed. His clothes were torn into shreds, but he succeeded in beating the beast off without suffering any injury. - Two of these mad foxes have been killed thus far. The entire popula tion is up in arms, and an effort will be made to clean the animals out. None of the persons bitten by the foxes has as yet shown symptoms of hydrophobia. The theory is' advanced that the disease is caused by the drought. The Record at Base Ball. Chicago, July 33. League base ball scores yesterday were: At Chicago Chi cago, 16; Cincinnati, 8.

The track was torn up for a great distance, totally sus pending traffic. The spreading of the rails caused the accident. ' The Latest Lie on Blaine. Bar Harbor, July 3; .In order to ascer tain how true is the report that Mr. Blaine has Bright's disease, a reporter visited Dr. Foster, Mr. Blaine's physician. He went with the reporter to the cottage of Dr. Smith who treated Mr. Blaine until the mid dle of .June. The two physicians concurred in the opinion as they declared without any mental reservation that their patient has had no symptoms of Bright s disease or any other chronic kidney affection dur ing their conduct of the case. Too Common To Be Kxclting. Hesde::sox, Tex., July 23. A negro named William Johnson, aged 17 years, was taken out of the county jail Tuesday morning by an armed mob. who overpow ered the jailer, getting possession of his keys and securing the negro.
