A special from Yuma, Arizona,
says the Colorado desert basin at
Salton, sixt" miles west of Yuma,
is rapidly filling up with fresh
water from a subterranean passage
believed to be connected with the
Colorado river. At latest advices the
desert was converted into an im
mense lake, and if the water con
tinues to rise the Southern Pacific
tracks will be submerged for 100
miles and the Salton salt works will
te a complete loss, and be com
pelled to close up. The thermome
ter registered 14.1 degrees.
Some tough characters have been
stopping about town . tor tnree or

little of value has been lost. Ned
Baker had his bannana shed rob
bed of about $2 worth of fruit dur
ing the evening. The police caught
two of the toughs in the B. A- M
yards but were unable to find any
thing about them that would con
nect them with pilfering. lhey
were ordered out of town and de
Simultaneously with the arrival
of a former Nebraska journalist in
this city bearing a large assort
ment of samples of excellent to
bacco manufactured at his new
home in the south, comes the an
nouncement of the observations on
the effect of tobacco upon the
students of Amherst college. These
statistics agree so completely with
similar facts collected nt Yle that
they may be considered a safe basis
for positive statements as to the
influence of the tobacco habit upon
the growing man. It is shown bv
the figures from both colleges that
the non-smokers are of greater
weight than the smokers. lhey
have a greater chest girth and more
lung capacity. They are more suc
cessful in athletic sports and have
a decmea aavantage over tne
smokers in mental grasp and
scholarship. These facts are not
only interesting but suggestive to
young men in an conuitions ot
lite. Mate Journal.
The washout at the north end. of
the Platte river bridge on the M, P.
was quite a bad one but it will be
fixed up b3r to-night so that trains
can run over the new line. The
statement of the division superin
tendent that only a stub train will
be put on the new line until after
two or three months in order that
the roaded bed may settle, etc., is
very flshy indeed and will be read
by the tax paj ers of this city who
put up !r.)0,000 with but little patience
The apparent indifference of the
M. P. officials as to the keeping
their word with this city, and the
further desire not to operate the
road until our people die off of old
age, will provoke such a feeling
against the company that they
won't do any business her when
they do get their line into opera
tion. The good will of this city
may not lie of much consequence;
at any rate the ill will -can be had
without much further provocation.

The second game of ball between
the Falconers of Omaha and the
Burlingtons was played yesterday,
and the result of day before reversed.
The Burlington evidently thought
they could repeat yesterday's dose,
and not recover from the mistake
until too late. Buck Adams pitched
for the home team the first three
innings, then Sam Patterson and
finally Perrine, the latter being in
fine form. Stephenson of Council
Bluffs came down to pitch for the
visitors anu w nitev filler also
helped them out, making the first
two runs by fine base stealing. The
features of the game, however, were
