The grading work in Main and Penrl

added to the accomodations of the B. &

Though Hold in Dread It Is not so
Fearful as Many Think.
The present month May is consider
ed the cyclone season in the United
States, as more occur, according to sta
tistics in this month than any other in
th" year. People know that cyclones are
.. . . t come anJ t, Clin.fc be belpctl
uJ nve ia constant dread of them. A
few t.,ys ago wj,en the wind was gener-
ousiy baling with real estate, a young
a,v remarked UI do wish it would
rain' in the evening when the clouds
gathered and there seemed sure signs of
tae granting of her wish said ''Oh! my,
j,,, so afaj,l we'rc going to have a cy-
clone." Yet she never saw a cyclone and
doubtless could'nt name a half dozeu
people that were ever actually in one,
and though there is danger, they do not
destroy so much life and property by far
as fire, and fire is seldom thought of, or
dreaded as a source of danser. All the
fatalities tornadoes can put on tht ir list
are actually insignificent to those by fire
and can hardly be proportioned to the
number of people in the United States.
The history of tornadoes and cyclones
li is been a subject of examination in the
National Geograpeical Society and their
investigations run a long way back in
time. They find that in eighty eight
yenrs there have been 4,000 persons kill
ed and G.000 permanently injured by
such storm?, that the number of accident-
is greatly on the increase for the reason
that population has spread all over the
regions where these tempests most pre
vail, which half a century ago were
almost desolate. The average number
ea- li year in the United States is about
14 . More occur in May than in any
other month, and they most frequently
rie from 3 to 4 in the morning and be
tween 4 and 5 in the afternoon.
There is nothing in these figures to
give cyclones half the gloomy shades
witli which many people give them and
wait in awful dread for their occurance
on the gathering of every little storm
flin-i or thrpntrnincr wind.

Kitclien scraps tuat sore are worn to

the city marshal said: "I don't think
the people of this town ned to throw
anything in the street to decay or make a
s:n-ll, for there is enough ordor from
those filthy ponds to do. You don't
notice it so much in the day time when
the sun heats cp tho air and streets, but
at night after the air cools oT enough
that it don't rise so, you can smell those
places from one end of Main street to
the other." Without appointing a night
to investigate, the IIesalc scribe has
by chance d.3Coved the truth of the
1 marshal's assertion, and it is with eager

GRADE OF PEARL AND SIXTH.
A Petition Being Circulated to Have
a Reduction Made.
"When the old Stadelmann house was
placed by Mr. Riley on Pearl and S.sth
streets it showed how high the grade was
about seven and one-half feet above
the present street. Somes questions
arose about the grade in reference to
other buildings in the vicinity, how this
liue would liave them, they having also
been builtto an old line.
Mr. Jas. Woodson, who understood
the circumstances and knowing the
awkward position it would result in to
his and other buildings warued the
movinjc contractor, but he had the sur
veyor's instructions and went by them.
Mr. "Woodson then had a petition pre
pared to be presented to the city council
asking that the grade be lowered and
that within ninety days the streets from
Main on Sixth to Pearl and west on
Pearl to Seventh be graded to their
proper height, and settle the present dis
puted grade line. This petition is being
igued by all interested partses for the
council to consider next Monday night.
Mr. Vanarnaman, who is overseeing Mr.
Riley's interests hers ordered the old
Stadelniann building lowered this morn
ing and the men set to work immediate
ly and the building was lowered two
Mr. Rosewater, of Omaha, was in town
last night looking over the situation to
see what will be necessary in doing the
grading and how it will affect other
streets and will probablo make a report
to the council Monday night. But he
does not favor the changing of the grade
