FLOOD SITUATION IN TEXAS Appeal to ( lie IMilillr to Snppl } the of Ilc Kcllcf WASHINGTON , July 12. Representative R. B. Haw ley of Texas , who Is now In Washington , today made public the follow ing statement with reference to the flood situation In that state : "The disaster which has overtaken the communities in southern Texas Is without parallel In our country. At some points the precipitation was thlee and one-half feet In sKty hours , resulting In a flood of enormous proportions , covering an area of many square miles to a depth c.f from flv'e to twenty feet and a loss Of fiom $25,000,000 to $40,000,000. "No less than twenty populous towns have been Inundated as well as thousands of well-established and well-ordered farms , which today are in a complete state of deso lation. Practically every work animal every milk cow , together with all stock cattle and every vestige of vegetation , have been swept away , leaving the country com pletely devastated. Within the influence of this awful disaster re-sided over 100,000 people , almost half ot whom are in a state of helplesbne * today except as they may be provided for by th se who are generdus and able to assist them. "Texas Is alive to the situation and is doing its utmost to relieve suflcilng. It Is , however , for the state alone within the time necessary to succor these people to come to their relief. When the great Johns town flo&d occurred Peftr Varila could have easily , takcn care ot TO'onm It given .time , but cs it was , as It is now , the essential factor , It was obliged to appeal to a generous public in every part of the union and from every quarter the relief was immediate on a scale commensurate with the disaster. "To this public the flood district of Texas appeals today to supply the necessaries of life until the horrors of the flood shall have passed and the people shall be in a position to again address themselves to the task of re-establishing their homes. ' "For this purpose it is urged thiough the press , the different commercial bodies and municipal authorities of every city of the union that this appeal be answered. "JPor the distribution of this relief a sys tem Is being organized throughout the flooded district immediately under the di rection of the governor of Texas , to whom all contributions should bo addressed at Austin , Tex. , and under whose care every dollar will be Judiciously and effectively expended " MntlitU'H of the IlnnUm.

People can live In a temperature which feels from ten to twenty degrees cooler than their neighbors enjoy , by regulating the brcakfafit. This Is a proceeding to which people who care for phjslcal comfort In hot weather , are giving careful attention. The plan Is to avoid meat entirely for breakfast , use a goodly allowance of fruit , cither cooked or raw. Then follow with a saucer containing about four heaping teaspoonfuls - spoonfuls of Grape-Nuts , treated with a llt tlo rich cream. Add to this about two slices of entire wheat bread , with a meager amount of butter , and serve one cup ot Pos- tum Food Coffee. If one prefers , the Grape Nuts can be turned Into the cun of Food Coffee , giving a delightful combination. By this selec tion of food the bodily energy Is preserved , while the hot , carbonaceous foods have been left out. The result Is a very marked dif ference In the temperature of the body , and to this comfortable condition Is added the certainty of easy and perfect digestion , for the food Is readily worked up by the dlgcMlvo machinery. Experience and experiment In food and its application to the human body hag brought out these facts , They ran bo made use of and add mateilally to the comfort of the user. $2134,7M In April Present holdingot gold coin are $ Ki7ui7 , which Is a gain of more than $72,000 since April.

Inquiry was 10- cently made ot the State department In re gard to the grave of John Paul Jones , the great naval hero of revolutionary dajs , who died In Paris July 18 , 1782. Ho was burled there with the highest honors by the French government , but It appears that the present location of his grave Is not known , The secretary of state icccntly addressed a letter to Mr. Henry Vlgnaud of the United States embassy In Paris asking whether the grave of John Paul Jones tn Paris is Known and marked. Ho has received a reply from Mr , Vlgnaud eaylng that , although he has made earnest and ficquent inquiries of the city authorities In regard to the matter , he has been unable to discover the whereabouts of the gra\e. One thing established by his In quiries , however , he says , la tbat John Paul Jones was not burled In the cemetery where the remains of Lafayette He , as has been supposed by some people. In another quar ter It Is Intlmatod that , owing to a custom prevailing in Paris , the remains of John Paul Jones were deposited In a rented grave for a term of years and that upon the ex piration of the lease a great many jcars ago the bones of this distinguished American patriot were thrown into the Potters' field.

WASHINGTON , OXily 11 < An offer from a prominent nrm _ or ship brokers , doing a largo foreign 'business , to purchase the Helna Mercedes and apy and * all ot the other war craft',2ap Hred during the late war has arouspJ < Hsuspicion that Spain Is trying In tB' SJjfct manner to obtain possession Vf.&JS Ksels and'thus remove the offense to Spanish prfde caused by the floating of the American flag over Its ships. The offer mentioned no figures , but simply requested the Navy department to name Its price for the Mercedes and the remainder ot the captured Spanjsh ships. The Nay department will not sell any ot these vessels and that answer will bo returned to the writer of the letter. Secretary Long has decided that It would not pay to attempt to renovate the Mercedes and use it as a war ship. The cost would be no ICES than $500- 000 and the ship would , when repaired , be one of old typo and not up to the require ments of a modern naval ship. Therefore the repairs to be made upon It will bo confined to a llttlo painting and cleaning and patching and the Mercedes will bo left as a show ship , like the old Constitution , to gratify the patriotism of the American people.

Scientific men are manifesting much Interest In the prep arations now making by the Coast and Geodetic detic survey , which i ? charged with the magnetic survey ot the United States for de termining the accurate deviation of the com pass at sea. Heccnt accidents at sea and the severe competition ot ocean liners have called at tention in a striking way to the need of ac curate values of the deviation of the com pass needle. The values of the deviation of the needle usually used are almost wholly dependent on the observation1 ! made on land and little has been done by the United Stales to secure observations at sea. The vessels ot the survey arc being fitted with special magnetic Instruments for these observations and it Is-jhoped ; ) } vvlthlu a vcry short time ihe ; "eurvcy .jnay .be able to furnish values of the magnetic vaiiatlon at sea equal In accuracy to those ou land.
