OWhcn L. Harris , who runs t bottling
works on Broadway near the Northwestern
depot , opened up his establishment yester
day morning , ho found unmistakable cvl-
dcnca that ho had bad some callers during
his absence. A largo ofllco chair was lying
on the lloor In a statu of smash tip , the door
of his largo steel safe was lying peacefully
on thu lloor several foot from Its moorings ,
nnd thu light wooden partition wlncti divides
the front onlco from the rest of the building
was tilled with holes through which n cat
could have been thrown without Injury to the
On Investigation ho found thata window In
thn rear door of the building had been
broken out , and that through the hole thus
made the visitors had made their entrance. A
hole about largo enough to admit the Inser
tion of n lead pencil In the top of the safe told
the tide. A charge of gun powder had been
nut Inside the hole imJ then Ignltud , thus ac
counting for this torn up condition of things
Inthootllco. The explosion had resulted In
the complete ruin of the sufo , which means u
loss of about $150.
The thieves failed to realize anything on
their expedition , as the safe had been emp
tied ot all Its valuables bcforu closing up
Saturday night , nnd the only tulng In It was
the number of thu safe combination. This
was appropriated by the thieves.
There Is no clue to the perpetrators , but
Iho sudden advent into the city a day or two
ngoofacouplu of well known crooks bus
caused n knowing expression to creep over
thu faces of the police.

Broadway , said yesterday , speaking of the
bridge In connection with the proposed rapid

bridge and approaches would open avenues
of local commerce which would completely
abolish the overcrowded condition of the

LOUISVILLE , Ky. , May 17. The delegates
to the Scotch-Irish congress tonight con
ducted an old-fashioned Covenantor's moot
ing at tuo Auditorium , the largest hall In the
city. An audlonco of , ' 1,000 was present nnd
many more were turned away. The lining
out of the hymn and the careful explanation
of the scriptural reading were the main char
acteristic features. The Rov. C. R. Hemp-
hill of the Warren Memorial church hero
presided , and the Rov. J. L. McNair
of Lovisvlllo lend the singing. There was

hearty good will that hrougnt back tbo

Gcorgo Mi c'oskio , of Princeton , Psalm 08 ,
to the tune "Balerma , " and the benediction

have been tedious to all but for tholr novelty.

Kansas Crop'Outlook Good.
KANSAS CITY , Mo.Ma3'17. The Starsays :
The crop reports franc Kansas have been get
ting worse and worse every day for a week ,
nnd yesterday tboro were very few among
local grain mon who d oyjiot fool anxious over
the outlook. The torapqr of advices Is com
pletely changed today , xiSoaklng rains fell
last night and todayithroughout tbo wheat
belt. Telegrams frop , 'Lnrucd , Ilutohlnson ,
Attica , Topeka , ElUw'ot h , Salina , Abilene ,
McPherson , Great I/uxI ) / ) , Dolphos nnd In
dependence state thatgood rains fell , andi
ut some of these places it is stll
raining. The ruin Is moving eastward und It
is probabublo that bofuro tomorrow morning
the entire stuto of Kansas will have had a
good wetting down. The rain will do an
immense amount of good , but tboro Is some
question still ni to whether In some sections
the ravages of Insects have not gene too far
to bo completely overcome by favorable
weather. At any rate it now seems certain
that the state will ralso from 40,000,000 to
50.000,000 bushels of wheat.
NASHVII.I.E. Tonn. , May 17. Continued
dry weather Is seriously Interfering with the
crops in this section of Tennessee. The
growth of vegetation is at a standstill nnd
the prospect for cotton Is especially had.
