After Mr. McKay had used a few

' Adelbert S. Hay, who was killed at
Yale college last week, was the eldest
son of the secretary of state and was
born while the latter was living in
Cleveland, O., about twenty-five years
ago. His second name is Stone, which
he bears in memory of the late Amasa
Stone, his maternal grand sire. He was
educated in private schools of Cleve
land and prepared at St. Paul's Acad
emy in Concord, N. H., for Yale. At
the university he was a popular schol
ar, for, though outwardly reserved in
manner, he was capable of warm and
steadfast friendships, and was of
charming manners. At Yale Adelbert
gave much time to athletics, and thus
splendidly developed his naturally
robust frame, so that he stood at 21
full six feet high, with chest and limbs
of corresponding proportions. The
stalwart figure of young Hay, with the
look of reserve power in his face, un
doubtedly went far towards securing
for him the respect and consideration
which is not always exhibited to one
of his years.

Elahora. Valley Devastate
The scene of the worst part of the
flood was the Valley of the Elkhorn,
in McDowell county, in the south
western part of West Virginia. An
other valley to the south of this one
along the Clinch river also suffered,
but not so severely. Elkhorn creek
flows between two mountain ridges,
Indian Ridge to the north and Big
Stone Ridge to the south. In some
places the valley is not over a quar
ter of a mile wide, the hills rising pre
cipitously from the banks of the
stream, along which ran the track of
the Norfolk and Western railroad.
Over the high valley when the atmos
phere was heated to a high degree the
'w",'ids brought clouds saturated with
moisture. The fall of rain that result
ed was tremendous. The swollen
mountain streams all poured tbeJT
water Into the Elkhorn and the nar
row valley was filled by it.

Then came the cloudburst. Its wall
of water started down the valley short
ly before 9 o'clock In the morning, and
the damage had all been done by 11.

personal bravery that, though never
recklessly or boastingly evidenced, was

his death he had achieved a reputation

New Haven, Conn., under the strain
of fatigue and mental agony Sunday
evening as he stood by the remains of

The secretary was at once assisted to
his bed and a physician summoned.

drift mouth until the town was partly
inundated. He made his way to the
cabin that served as his home, where
his wife and new-born babe were lying
helpless. He tried to rescue both, and
after a fierce battle with the flood,
which was filled with logs and debris,
he reached a place of safety only to
discover that both were dead.
From Enns, W. Va, to Vivian, a
distance of ten mile3, the country was
lined with debris of all kinds.
At Elkhorn the lower floors of all the
one-half miles long, there was no loss

At least 100 freight cars on sidings

given the people to save themselves om
the hills, and then all was over for
those who had failed. The region of
the worst destruction stretches from
Welch, the county seat, on the west
to Coaldal on the east, a distance of
about twenty miles. Of the towns be
tween, Keystone, a place of 2,000 in
habitants, is reported to have suffered
the most.
Two Haadred Are Daad at jaeyateae.
The death list there is reported to
mount up toward 200. Sixty-six dead
bodies have been recovered. There
were thirty-five saloons in that town,
and of them only one is left standing,
it being located high on the hillside.
The rumor is that it is the only build
ing in the town still standing. Vivian,
the next largest town, is reported to
have been almost wiped out of exist
ence. In both of these towns the min
ers had assembled with their Satur
day night's pay. They cannot have
got back to their mountain huts, and
must have shared the fate of the in
habitants. After the flood the railroad
company started men on foot to walk
along the hillsides to survey the con
dition of the line. A trainmaster, who
ralked the twelve miles between
Vivian and North Fork, counted thirty-eight
dead bodies floating on the
surface. That is an indication of what
may be expected when full Information
is obtained.
Flee from Water.
The remarkably heavy rains of the
past few weeks have caused the flood
ing of a number of mines In the Car
bondalo section of the anthracite coal
belt in Pennsylvania and operations
have been suspended at four collieries,
throwing about 7,000 men and boys out
of employment.
At the Glenwood mine the water has
reached the height of 38 feet, and is
still rising despite the fact that extra
pumps have been put in says a special
telegram from Scranton. At several
of the mines the pump3 generally used
are under water and others will have
to be put In place.
The damage at all the mines will
reach tremendous figures.

"I have heard nothing about the
matter since the adjournment of Con

which is obtaining all the information
possible on the subject. Army officers

siderable opposition, however, as It Is
certain that to attempt to push the

would precipitate commercial disturb

not be adopted."

lies took refuge in the second stories,
from which they were rescued.
In the mad rush to escape the fami
lies were separated and the children
lost, and this added to the general ex
citement, making it Impossible to ac
curately estimate the loss of life.
The scene along the Elkhorn Valley
beggars description, and the full dam

The Rev. Edward Everett Hale of

was a young man studying for the
ministry I came to the conclusion that
it was a good time to retire from the
pastorate of a church when one got
to be 40. When I got to be 40 I
changed my mind and thought 50 was
the proper age for retiring; then, later,
I came to see things still differently,
and decided that when I was 60 I
should drop the work; but I don't give
the matter any thought now."

It Is not uncommon when young
lambs or other young animals die and
are opened to find abscesses In the liv
er and these may be associated with
similar abscesses in the joints or else
where. The earliest experience of the
writer with such abscesses was in the
lambs of a flock of in-and-lnbred Bor
der Leicester ewes, raised upon the
low lying, rich, alluvial soil In the
Till valley of Northumberland, Eng
land. The Iambs referred to probably
showed all the Ills that such weaken
ed animals are heir to, and many were
the discussions as to the nature and
cause of the various lesions discovered
upon post mortem examination. The
white-nosed lambs were invariably the
seat of all manner of unsoundness,
and on general principles we were
strongly tempted to knock them on the
bead at birth, so seldom did they sur
vive more than a few days. In most
of these and in some of the remaining
lambs, that were apparently healthy
for a day or two we found, on opening
them after death, that the liver was
a mass of pus, which in some had
burst, and in others remained enclosed
in a cyst In the liver of one lamb
there was a large abscess, and some
smaller ones. The large one was ad
herent to the diaphragm and had an
opening into the right side of the chest
where extensive inflammation and ad
hesion of the pleura had taken place
caused by the fluid portion of the ab
scess being discharged Into the pleural
cavity. In others the entire liver was
disorganiezd and the parts presented
the appearance of a mass of corrup
tion. For a long time we were at a
loss to explain these abscesses, and
shepherds consulted attributed them to
tuberculosis and thought that they
were inherited from the ewes and ex
isted at time of birth. Later on how
ever, we came to the conclusion, and
have no reason to think otherwise
since, that the abscesses are due to
suppurative microbes-stryptococci
which gained access to the
system at the raw navel cord.
The open umbilical vein pre
sents a highway, so to speak, for
the carrying of germs to the liver and
in all the cases thoroughly examined,
the navel cord was found to be inflam
ed and discharging a thin pus. In some
instances the navel cord had shriveled
up and fallen off, but an angry spot
remained and this offered a suitable
place for the lodgment and propaga
tion of the noxious germs. When the
germ gains entrance an abscess usu
ally forms around the navel; pus Is
generated and Is carried into the cir
culation In due course of time to form
fresh colonies in the liver or in the
Joints and we then have a typical
case of "joint ill" which is not gener
ally recognized as such, but is apt to
be considered rheumatism or tuber
cular swelling. The raw navel of ev
ery young animal Including the hu
man infant should be most carefully
attended to. It Is not merely neces
sary to cut and tie it to stop profuse
It should be remembered that the
system is wide open at this point, and
futher that Iho cord Itself Is bound to
decompose and the products of de
composition absorbed Into the system
are liable to produce blood poisoning
or pus infection. Thousands of young
animals yes Infants too succumb
annually to such poisoning, due en
tirely to ignorance of the subject,
hence we would most strongly advo
cate the Invariable application of
strong antiseptic solutions to the na
vel cord at time of birth and until it
is entirely healed up. Any good disin
fectant will do the work necessary.
For infants and lambs nothing is bet
ter than a mixture of one part of iodo
form with six parts of boracic acid to
be applied to the navel upon antiseptic
cotton retained In place by means of a
bandage and to be renewed once dally.
A strong solution of carbolic acid or
similar disinfectant, one drachm in
eight ounces of water, applied two or
three times daljy will also prove ef
fective as a preventive, but the most
effective of all is a strong solution 6f
corrosive sublimate in water. In addi
tion to the application of medicine the
lambing pen, and similar places for
other animals should be kept scrupu
lously clean.
Observations oa Southern Horticulture.
The question of transportation of
fruit Is the great one at present In
northern Alabama and In some parts
of southern Tennessee the strawberries
were rotting on the vines this spring
at a time when, they were selling for
15 cents per box in Chicago. They
had been picked to supply the local
demand till the prices fell to a point
where 'picking was no longer profit
able. The price was low because the
growers were virtually cut off from a
market Within a few hours from that
time, the. writer was in Atlanta, where
berries were selling from wagons at
from 7 to 12 cents per box. The
growers around Atlanta simply had
access to a good market

At Southern Pines only two varieties
of grapes are being grown the Del
aware and the Niagara. These two
varieties are best suited to the soil
and conditions mentioned. Of the two,
the Delaware probably stands at the
head. This is due to the fact that it is
less affected by grape diseases than
the other, and also to the fact that It
sells at a higher price In the market
The Delaware should be extensively
grown in the South, for It Is hard to
overstock the markets with this vari
ety. The Niagara is profitable where
the marketing conditions are favor
able. Many of the other varieties of
grapes require a stronger soil than
the varieties we have mentioned.

It is said that lambing in southern
Arizona will average 100 per cent this
year as against sixty-five per cent last
season, and this is the best percentage
in two years. The winter was extra
mild and sheep came out in fine condi

condition, and the grass is of excellent
growth thus far this season.
Sheep-killing dogs are so numerous
in many sections of the south as to
discourage farmers from attempting to
keep flocks, for which they have am

An outbreak of cattle poisoning
which occurred in the Gallatin Basin,
Montana, and which resulted in the
death of forty cattle, was investigated.
It was found that the poisoning was
due to the species of larkspur known as
Delphinium glaucum. and that this
plant had been apparently eaten In un
usual quantities, on account of the fact
that other green forage was covered
by a recent fall of snow.
