A Dry Cyclone.
On Sunday evening last at. G.Iar
nett, Kansas, was witnessed what
the Kansas people are pleased to
term a "dry cyclone." wircfh threw
the whole city into a fever of ex
citement. A special, describing it
says it was plainly visible from
the town For a period of nearly
half an hour. It was so plain that
tlie p)hotographers took good views
of it from the city. A correspond
ent of the Kansas City Times
says it hai the appearance of a
large rope, black in color and as
large as a hogshead, extending all
the way from the earth to the
clouds. It was almost perpenidic
ular near the earth, but leaned
northward at the to) until it reaeh
ed the clouds, when it stretched
alimost horizontally through them
for at great (istan(Te. Your corres
pondent visited the scene and
found that is was a dry cyclone,
no water falling with it. It form

of Garnett and passed northeast

She stated further that the child
was the illegitmiate offspring of i
an aristocratic woman, and it was
her brother who gave the infant to 1
the old negress to shield his sis- k
ter's reputation and conceal her
shame. The old negress brought
her charge to Alabama, claiming
her as a daughter, and the real1
truth of matters very probably
never would have been uncovered
to the world but for Mary's mar
riage to the white man and the in
dictment issued against him. Mrs.

manhood, has light straight hair,
fair complexion, and clear blue.

decided that she was hevond doubt
