WRECKED BY A WATER-SPOUT.
Hot Springs, Ark, Wrockod-SIx
Ln rr.K Kk k, Ark., Kept. 1. A Ja
zctto special from Hot .Springs, Ark.,
niiyn: Yesterday was an tpoth in the his
tory of Hot .Springs. The city is gutted.
Iluin and wreck meet the vision every
where, and nothing like it has ever been
known to compare with the result of the
Thursday night's storm, which occurred
too lute to lu telegraphed. It was n
water spout, and tho valley was swept
with a mighty tidal wave. The loss too
property is fearful, while the nuciilioe of
human life, is, under the circumstance,
appalling.. Swift and terrible were- the
visitations. Without warning the peo
ple were awakened from their slumbers
to find themselves threatened with des
truction by the mad waves. Strange to
relate, few people were conscious of the
horrible disaster till they awoke to look
upon the desolate scenes yesterday morn
ing, and to drag the drowned from the
drifts. The btorm struck the town about
eleven oclock Thursday night from a
northwestwardly direction. It was ac
companied by stiff, cool winds, though
not strong enough to produce damage.
Rain fell in torrents from 11 to 1 o'clock
without intermission or cessation. In
deed, tliono who were up and witnessed
the awful scene describe il as one never
before seen by them. Vivid flashes of
lightning displayed, as it were, great
sheets of falling water. At tho close of
the storm a great and ominous sound, with
the shouts of the people and cries of dis
tress went up from the valley, and
such citizens as were in the vicinity of
the creek and ravines went forth to ren
dr assistance. The flood on Central
avenue, the principal thorough fare, as
sumed an angry river, whose, rushing tide
swept everything movable on its bosom.
For over half an hour the avenue
was transform Hi into a torrent
fifty yards wide. Barrels, boxes and
parts of houses came down on the tide
and were left strewn on sidewalks. Sev
eral large hotels were flooded to a depth
of four feet with the murky waters.
Many buildings were totally wrecked.
Up to this hour six persons are known to
have been found dead in the wreked
buildings. The damage to property is
estimated at $100,000.
Struck a Cold Mine-
Howard, Dak., Aug. ol. Great excite
ment exists all classes here, brought about
by the finding gold dust thickley mixed
with sand thrown from an excavation
which the workmen were digging for
well purposes. Old miners were soon on
the spot and pronounced the find as a
very promising one. From a quantity
obtained, an essay was made, valuing the
quality at $18 per ounce. The only
trouble is if the vein is found, will be the
nearness of water to the surface, as exca
vations of l."0 feet quickly fill with wa
ter to the depth of 130 feet. The find
seems to lie under the surfce of the main
street of the town.
Found Dead on a Sand Bar-
Dakota City. Neb., August 31. Sher
iff Brasfield was this afternoon notified
that the body of a dead man had been
found on a sand bar of the Missouri river
about twelve miles below here and at
once started thereto. There are conflict
ing rumors concerning the dead man,
one being that he was found a quarter
of a mile from high water mark, and
that he was undoubtedly murdered,
while another report is that he is doubt
less the man, Kobert Powers, who recent
ly fell from a bridge at Sioux City.
Canada Will Open Her Ports-
Toronto, Out., August 31. A special
from Ottawa says: "The bluster and

at Hagersville have not weakened the be

A free minstrel show company held
down a platform on the corner of Fourth
and Main streets last night. That num
ber of the population which could not
put in an appearance, were ceartainly
sick or disabled, for a larger crowd has
not been seen in any locality on the
streets for some time. The company of
colored men, fiye in number, are employ
ed by a Dr. Turner, who gives the per
formance as an advertising scheme and
to attract a crowd. It is a good one
and must invariably draw a large aud
ience. Their concert consists of negro
melodies, songs and dances, choruses and
farces, and ihey are all rendered in a
pleasing style by the funny men. They
afforded considerable amusement for
the appreciative crowd
The seven year old daughter of Mr.
Chas. Spangler, who n sides about two
miles south of the city, met with what
proved to be a very painful and serious
accident Friday afternoon. While a
cider mill was in oferation and she was
playiug around it, she dropprd her hand
into the machine. The ringers of her
right hand were so badly cut and crushed
that her phj'sician thinks it will be
necessary to amputate the third and
fourth fingers. While under the treat

Only a few days since, we published
a list of names of the old veterans who
yoted for Harrison in 1840, but, as the
nr.mes printed were secured by advertis
ing, a few of as prominent ones have
been received within the last few days, of
which we are pleased to make special
mention. The gentlemen we have refer
ence to, are still strong supporters of
Harrison in 18S8: G. S. Cooley, of
Louisville; A. Cole, Plattsmcuth; Mr.
Macdougall, of Manly and Win. Young,
of Bock Bluffs precinct.
The train (No. 0) which now arrives
here at 7:30 a. m., from the cast, will, in
the future, arrive fifteen minutes sooner,
at 7:13, leaving Pacific Junction at 7
o'clock. To the many who express con
siderable dissatisfaction because the train
now passes here at such an early hour and
frequently miss the train, this information
will surely not be the the most consoling.

Lave made that remark, and although it is a
distinction to have done what no other man
of woman born in all tho ages has ever dune,
Jean Francois Blond in seems to have in a
measure survived himself. When in his in
trepid primo ho walked tho narrow path of
hemp above tho mad swirling waters so dizzily
fur beneath him, both tho American and
Canadian shores wero black with beholders
who watched him with bated breath. Now
when ho returns to America after decades
and exhibits thoeven more startling nerve of
tripping blithely on tho tight ropo with Co
years on his back, a sparse gathering of
Coney Island visitors look with languid in
terest at tho doughty funambulist before the
Boa Beach pavilion.
There is much of the samo dissonance be
tween the Blondin of today up uloft on his
aerial pathway and tho Blondin who treads
the earth. There, clad in tights, and soft
ened by tho enchanting touches of distance,
there is something of the quasi heroic about
his physique, despite his protuberant abdo
men. Straight as a crow Indian," motionless
as the statue of Memuon, he stands until the
braying band on tho portico of tho pavilion
breaks into a tumultuous strain. Then grasp
ing his long balaucing ixlo ho steps forlh
hardily and with an elastic abandon on the
rope. The cords staud out on his legs and
arms, his hair has a sort of wind swept look,
and his straight ahead gazo is as firm and
conlideut us the uublanching look of Fate.
His wonderful preservation, the agility
which invests his six and a half decados with
the robust vigor of a youth, tell of his mod
erate, carefully regulated lit o. In the morn
ing ho takes a breakfast of eggs and wine, or
something equally light, and then touches
nothing till after he has walked in tho even
ing, when he takes a. hearty dinner and lin
gers at tho loard with friends over some cor
dial quiet, restful, content.
"Do you feel any weakening of your pow
ers f was asked.
"None. Thcro is nothing that I havo ever
done which I cannot do equally well today,"
answered Blondin in French. "I am slightly
heavier, but I feel aa active as I ever felt."
"Havo you never felt any trepidation on
tho ropef '
"No. Of course there is a certain tension
of nerves, but I am as cool as I co-old wish.
I have never had any accident or been hurt.
Once or twico I lost my chair. I did this at
Niagara. Occasionally soma of the gear or
guy ropes have given way, but I have never
been injured. The ropo is always subjected
to a good test first. This ono is capable of
standing a pressure of forty tons, so I am
not likely to break it down. My sou super
intends all of these details now, and I can
feel the most perfect confidence in the safety
"Well, there must be some feat more diffi
cult than others, is there not;"
"Balancing with the chair is the most diffi
cult so far as equilibrium goes. But the
bicycle work is the most dangerous, as recov
ery in caso of a slip would be so difficult, if
"How do you tell when the chair is just
balanced in tho middle J"
"I am not so particular about that so long
as my center of gravity is right. I tell that
by my shoulders and my balancing polo.
There is a sense of being balanced which as
sures mo it is as it should be."
"In carrying a person over on yonr back,
are you indifferent as to who it is, or do you
havo a person who is trained or specially
qualified to bo carried? I don't suppose you
find many who covet the trip."
"Oh, yes. Thcro aro plenty who aro will
ing to take it I would as soon carry one aa
another if ho has nerve. But when I feel
anybody trembling or showing any trace of
vertigo, I adviso them not to go. Although
their legs are run through straps they could
6lip out of them if they were to get faint and
fall backward. The mast sways somewhat,
and a person subject at all to vertigo will
show it when he gets up there. I generally
carry over my son, though his wife is de
cidedly opposed to his taking the trip. But
it is perfectly safe. I am not as daugeroiw
as a bobtail car as a means of transit."
"When you crossed Niagara did you find
the rush of the water below you a nerve try
"No. For a fortnight before I crossed I
used to go and look down and seo tho waters
sweep over; but I found that they had no
unpleasant effect on me. It has been a little
annoying here at Coney Island when some
friends have taken me up into the tower and
then asked mo if I felt the height. I would
as lief walk a ropo at ono height as another.
The difficulty is in stretching a rope securely
at such great height."
"Have you ever changed your method at
"No. My method is the outcome of expe
rience rather than theory. I began walking
when a child. There is such a thiug as a
genius for rope walking as there is for every
thing else. I think I have it," said Blondin
modestly, "Now my son, though ho can get
over a rope, is not a ropo walker. He is a
good all-round athlete, but ho has no de
cided talent for the profession, and would
rather go over a tight rope on my back than
on his feet." New York Tribune Interview.
The Key to Popular Writing.
It is not given to any ono man to cover
successfully tho whole range of literary
work, and as an essayist Mr. Robert Louis
Stevenson is a failure. Of course anything
dressed in the garment of his perfect Eng
lish is pleasant reading, but for a man to
successfully write critical monologues he
must have sompthing in them beside the
beauty of style. Mr. Stevenson, in his esti
mate of popular writers, does not ssem to
touch the peculiar powr of this class at alL
Ha wholly fails to notico the one thing which
is common to all of them, be their methods
what they may.
There is a gentleman in New York, Mr.
Harlan P. Halsey, who is the author of the Old
pleuth series of stories. These are so popular
that he makes an income of about $20,000 a
year by his pen. His own statement about his
work is worth quoting, therefore, as that of
a man who knows how to reach the world of
readers spoken of by Mr. Stevenson; "I
bave a set rule," he said upon one occasion;
"I make something happen within every
thousand words." Incident, then, is the key
to popular writing, not a description of what
tho reader "believes he would be were ho in
the hero's place," as Mr. Stevenson puts it.
It Mr. Stevenson will again er amino the
torlo3 of Sylvanua Coljb, Jr., Mrs, South
worth, Braeebridge Hemyng, Pierce Egan,
or any of tho 'popular writers,' he' will find
that they are but a succession of incidents,
incidents, incident!" There is always soma-
jhing happening within each thousand
' words. -Current Literature

WINES MADE TO ORDER.
"That an KnclUH I-andlord Told In m Con
In Poole's tales tho l eader gets aa insight
into how wines were mado at some hotels.
Tbo author, meeting a stranger in a country
churchyard, recognizes Hurley, tho former
landlord of an inn ho used to frequent near
Cambridge, now, it appeal's, retired to enjoy
the fruits of his industry. Falling into a con
fidential discourse about tho way in which
this woithy conducted his business, tho
author receives from him a most luminous
and satisfactory account of his wines.
"You can't deny it, your wines were detest
able port, Madeira, claret, champagne"
"There now, bir; to provo how much gen
tlemen may bo mistaken, I assure you, sir,
as I'm an honest man, 1 never had but two
sorts of wino in my cellar port and sherry."
"How? when I myself have tried your
"Yes, sir, my claret, sir. Gentlemen who
pay their money, sir, liavo a right to Ikj
served with whatever they may pluaso to or
der, sir. 1 never would havo r.ny wines in
my house, sir, but port and sherry. Hut to
explain the thing at once, sir. This was my
plan, sir. If any ono ordered Madeira: Prom
one bottle of sherry take two glasses of wino,
which replace by two glasses of brandy, and
add thereto a slight squeeze of lemon, and
this I found to give general satisfaction. As
to the palo and brown .sherry, sir, a couple
of glasses of nice puro water, in placo of tlio
samo quantity of wine, mado what I used to
cull my delicate palo (by-the-by, a sqtioozo of
lemon added to that mado a very fair Ilucel
las), and for my old brown sherry, a leetlo
brown sugar was tho thing. It looked very
much like sherry that had. been twice to the
East Indies, sir, and indeed, to my custom
ers, who wero very particular about their
wines, I used to serve it as such.
"Hut my port was the wino which gave mo
tbo most trouble. Ono gentleman would
say: 'Hurley, I don't li!:o this wine; it is too
heavy 1' 'Is it, sir? I think I can find you a
lighter.' Out went a glass of wine, and in
went a glass of water. 'Well, sir,' I'd say,
'how do you approve of thatf' 'Why um
no; I can't say' '1 understand, sir; you
like an older wine softer. I think I can please
you, sir.' Pump again, sir. 'Now, sir,' says
1 (w iping the decanter with a napkin and tri
umphantly holding it up to the light), 'try
this, if you please. 'That's it, Hurley that's
the very wine; bring another bottle of tho
same.' But ono can't please everybody tho
same way, sir. Some ceutlemen would com
plain of my port as being poor without
body. In went ono glass of brandy. If that
didn't answer, 'Ay, gentlemen,' says I, 'I
know what will please you; you liko a fuller
bodied, rougher wine.' Out went two glasses
of wine, and in went two or three glasses of
brandy. This used to bo a very favorito
"And your claret?"
"My good wholesome port again, sir. Thro
wines out, three waters in, one pinch of tar

fuller claret, a little brandy ; for a lighter
claret, more water."

Tho "Chippy" Young Drummer.
To us old timers on tho road nothing is so
amusing as the "chippy" drummer. "We can
always tell him at sight. Ho may look as
fly as a thoroughbred, but his boggago gives
him away. He comes on his first trip with a
Lrunk full of clothing, and when he gets on a
car he is loaded down worso than an old
maid who is going sixty miles. Ho is euro to
have two valises and a sachel with a strap
hanging from his shoulder. A hat box, two
canes (ono for every day wear and the other
for Sunday), an umbrella, three railway
guides, a half dozen Hand & Mc2ally state
maps, a silk traveling cap, a new novel, a
pair of slippers, a rubber coat, a mohair
duster, a flask and a pipe, aro a few of tho
things which ho surrounds himself with. We
knew him because he kicks at everything.
Tho road is rough or crooked, or tho tima is
slow. He notifies tho conductor of the Pull
man before he leaves tho depot of his inten
tion to report him. He discourses for an
hour upon tho extortion of the baggage
When he gets off at a station he refuses to
pay 50 cents to the omnibus man and walks
to tho hotel, and swears later when required
to pay a dra3man 75 cents for hauling his
baggage from tho depot. He asks for the
best room in the hotel, and does not got it.
Meet thai same fellow four j'ears later, and
he has dropped all of his valises except ono
small one, and he no longer travels with
canes, umbrellas, slippers, railway guides,
maps, rubber coatand all that. One sido of
his valise will contain his samples, and all
the clothing he will need for a two months'
trip is on the other side. Ho carries two
suits of underclothing, two whito shuts and
a change of soc's. When the train is side
tracked while the road is being cleared of a
freight wreck, ho takes a nap. When he
goes into a hotel the clerk recognizes him as
one of the boys and gives him the best the
house affords, and then he takss a hand
in having fun with "chippies" himself.
