"The insects now cover an area of 460 square miles They are too young to fly, but are hopping eastward at a rate of two miles a day. In the region passed over by them, the lands are being swept clean. Said a southern alliance orat&f at a rural Fourth of July celebration: "Just 6ee what alliance legislation has done for Nebraska.

A peculiar casa in surgery is reported from Dead wood. About a month ago A1 Rogan was struck with a base ball in the cheek, breaking the jaw. In healing a strong, tibrous tissue was formed around the break, and Rogan, on account of the pain, used his jaws only when the occasion demanded, hence the tissue, which grew very fast, spread to his low' er jaw and the consequence was a lock. Growing alarmed he consulted a phyti cian, who broke the deadlock. Pierre dispatch, 15: The Unit*!

Aberdeen dispatch, 14: A furious storm of wind, rain and hail prevailed eight or ten miles north of here last night, extending over a section of coun try as many miles wide and thirty or forty miles long. In some localities nothing Buffered, but in others fine promising crops were pounded into the ground and houses and barns swept away. It is estimated that hundreds of acres of wheat have been destroyed. At Columbia, a bridge over the James river was lifted and dashed to pieces, while large trees along the river were torn up by the roots or blown down. Near Claremont, Farmers Parker, Cooley, Whitefield and others lost their houses and barns. Loss of life is rumored, but has not bean confirmed. 1 Tail stones measuring over ten inches circumference were picked up, while an hour after the storm' passed the ground looked as though covered with pieces of marble the size of hens' eggs. One farmer says hail was driven through boards near his house, and another had a cow return covered with blood, as the result of the terrible bombardment A majority of the farmers had no in surance, while others are in- the Plank inton and the alliance aid companies. In this immediate locality no rain of OOOsequence has fallen for twenty-five days and crops are badly damaged. All other sections are booming.

There was only one chair vacant in a down town barber shop the other day when a tall young man, accompanied by a lady and a lovely little girl of five, enr tered, and calling the head barber to on# side gave him a few explicit directions. Then the little girl's hat was removed, and the barl*?r enveloped her in one of the big white aprons. The young man lifted her up into the barber's chair with a whispered word of reassurance, and the lady, after kissing her, passed her hands caressingly over all the beautiful golden brown curia Then she sat down in a corner, where the child could not see her face, and pulled out her pocket handkerchief. By this time the occupants of the five other chairs had become vastly interest ed. All eyes were fixed on the sweet baby face with its curly halo. It was a pale little face, and thero were no rose buds on its cheeks, but above them were two glorious gray eyes that shone like a pair of stars On each side of the little face rested a particularly fat curL The child placed her hand upon each as the barber advanced with the big shears, and gazed beseechingly up into his face. "Now, Mr. Barber, I want you to leave Dimple and Dumpling until the very last. Cut all the rest of them off first, please. I shall miss them dreffully, you know. Me and Dimple and Dump ling has always been such friends. Dim ple is going out to my papa in a letter My papa is way out in Ceylon, you know. You haven't got a papa way out in Cey lon, Mr. Barber?" "No, miss 1 ain't got none at all. "And haven't you got a mamma, Mr. Barber? My mamma is going to put Dumpling into her 'Don't You Remem ber' box. Did you ever see a 'Don't Yon Remember* box, Mr. Barber?" "No, miss, I never did.* "Mamma's has got such a funny lot of things in it There's a little bit of orange blossom and a little pinafore that Alec used to wear. That's Alec over there by the window. And there's a little red shoe that was our little bruffer's. His name was Robin, and he died before any of us was borned, you know." At this moment the mother stepped forward and whispered to the little girl There was an old gentleman with a very red face in one of the chairs who shook like a veritable jelly at the child's re mark. Big brother Alec was blushing furiously and the whole barber shop was all agog. Thero was silence for a moment or two, while the scissors went snip, snip, snip. Then the little prattler broke forth again. "Mamma says I'm talking too much, Mr. Barber but if 1 don't talk I shall be gin to cxy. I cried awfully yesterday, you know so did mamma and nurse. That was when the doctor came and said they'd have to be cutted off. We all cried—'cept Cecil. He's eight years old. He never cries—'cepting when mamma spanks him then he howls. But at last I stopped crying, for Alec said he'd take me to lunch with him when we came in to have it done nuife said she'd let me sit up till half-past 7 for a whole week mamma's going to get me a silver thimble, and cook is going to have waffles for tea when we get back. Do you like waffles, Mr. Barber?" The barber replied in the affirmative, and then there was silence for a little while. "Have you got a sweetheart, Mr. Bar ber?" A titter ran around the room, and the barber turned as red as his pole out side, but he replied in the negative. "Alec's got one," pursued the child. "He goes to tea with her on Sunday. Cecil says he is awfully sweet on her. Cecil knows, too he was under the sofa when" But Aleo waited to hear no further. He bolted bodily and waited on the cor ner until the ordeal was at an end. The lady arose and whispered some further cautions, but they proved of no avail. "Well, Mr. Barber, if you haven't got any sweetheart or papa or mamma, you must be a norphan. Are you a norphan Mr. Barber?" The man nodded his head and then asked his questioner to keep her head still, like a good girL Another pause. Then: "Mr. BarberP "Yes, miss." "If you is a norphan what does you say when you go to bed? You can't say 'God bless papa and mamma' any more. I'm very glad I'm not a norphan." There was a dead silence in the room after that until the redfaced old gentle man blew his nose. The barber's task was almost finished now. "What's the matter, mamma? You're cryin'." "Why, not Dm art Lmm, What makes"—-— "Oh, but yes you are, mamma. I can hear you sniffling, and besides, I can see your face in the looking glass. There's two big tears running 'down your nose." 'Now, miss, just please sit steady* minute." The scissors gave a snip, and poor Dumpling fell down into her lap. Dim ple followed an instant later, and the child gazed ruefully at the two beauti ful severed curls. "Goodby, Dumpling and Dimple," she said, aud the tears began to gather. They almost overflowed a moment later as the barber lifted her from the chair and fche walked to the long mirror to survey herself. But her mother was equal to the emergency. Before Lena aace she called to her to come and help her put Dimple into the letter for Cey lon. The mother wound the two curls about her finger and then tied a little bit of blue ribbon round each of them. She put Dumpling away in her reticule and Dimple was placed among the closely written thects of foreign paper which she took out of an envelope. The letter was sealed then, and after that they arose to go. "Thank you very much, Mr. Barber," said the little girl, holding her hand out When me and Cecil get whiskers we'll come to you to cut them off. Do you play baseball, Mr Barber? 'Causo if you do I'm going to givo yon a present Would you like a ticket for our baseball match. Mr. Barber?" She pulled out a little bit of paste board from her pocket and handed it hint New York Evening Sun. A Remarkable War to 'oRAJTD BASEBALL MATC& DICK TtTRPtXS VEHSCS TDSCAROOA**. Admishon, 8 Pins. "Cecil is captain of the Dick Turpins, and he said now that I was going to have my hair cut off I'd be just as good as a boy. So he's going to lend me a pair of his trousers and I'm to be second base." A roar arose from each respective chair. As for the jolly old gentleman, he collapsed utterly. In the midst of the confusion the lady tried to escape, but Leu a'8 hat had to be put on and that caused still another delay. "No more snarls in the morning now, mamma," remarked the young lady as she put it on. But then she drew a very long face. "Oh, mamma, it wabbles dreadfully." The barber then slipped some paper inside the lining of the hat aud they aet off. But just at the doorway the redfaced old gentleman accosted them. He had his hat on by this time, but he took it off immediately and made a most courteous bow. "Madam," he exclaimed, "there are two things I want particularly, and you can grant me both of them. I want a kiss from that little daughter of yours and a ticket for that baseball match, can't pay the price of admission, for haven't three pins to my name, but per haps this," and as he spoke he slipped something bright and shiny into Lena' hand, "to be devoted to soda water after the Tuscaroras have been completely done up might answer the purpose just as well." The lady smiled and allowed Lena to give him the desired kiss, but fho handed him back the money, and could not be prevailed upon to accept it Then with a parting nod to the barber the two joined Alec on the corner. When last seen Lena was lifted up to the letter box to dispatch Dimple on the first stage of its long journey, aud the redfaced gen tleman, as he lost sight of her in the crowd on Broadway, vowed fervently that he would see that game of baseball, even if it cost a leg.—Acton Davies in "I served on General Butler's staff,' said Port Warden Comstock "was over four years in the army, but ntfver fired a gun was promoted for gallantry on the field and never was in a battle, and, in fact never saw a Confederate in arms, and I don't get a pension, I didn't carry away any spoons from New Orleans, but I've got Shakespeare, Byron ^nd Moore in leather that I brought away from th* Twiggs mansion where we made our headquarters while in New Orleans. If anybody got away with the spoons it would not be strange. The distinguished family thptt moved out for us left the family Silver and everything else, and we moved in and took possession and used the abandoned property as we had, under the laws of war, a perfect right to do. We found the famous Twiggs swords there. They have long been on exhibition at Wash ington. The Twiggs heirs are trying to get all these things back, but they'll have as hard a time to trace that library, I'm afraid, as they will the tpwafl,"— New York Herald. Chicago's Parks and Parkways. The parks and parkways of Chicago are of a type the outgrowth of her nat ural landscape conditions and the char acteristics of her people. Between th« great lake on the east and the prairie main land on the west is a low, swampy tract diversified by sand ridges washed up by the storm waves and shijfted about by the winds. The lake in Gome places encroaches upon the land, and at other points extends the shore by the forming of sand bars. Upon such a site was founded Chicago, and upon such a soil has she built her parks and boulevards. The wide streets were rescued as rap idly as possible from their primitive condition of alternate mud and dust, graded and laid with the most approved forms of pavement. The fondness of the people for riding and driving, that led them at an early day to provide so amply for public ways, caused the fea ture of fine driveways to be prominent when the public parks were to be made. —Hamper's Weekly.
