dreamed of the destruction that was
being waged down town when they
looked out and noticed tho water was
coming down in sheets, but there he
ing no wind or storm and litllo ihun
der no ono realized tho immense
amount of water that was falling.
Tho groat sower, which starts at
Washington avenue and runs down
Vino street to Sixth, then south on
Sixth to tho alley at tho rear of
White's and Dovoy's storos on to tho
river, although backed up by tho
higlit of tho Missouri, did good work
for an hour, wion its capacity wa9
ovortaxed and tho increasing Hood
burst out around the eewer and
started with a resistless tide down to
Sixth and then down Main, filling
cellars on its way with as littlo loss to
its foico as if they had been pint cups.
Tho avenue for blocks above the
mouth of the sower was at times nearly
live feet deep with the muddy torrent,
and solid sections of sidewalk were
picked up and tossed about as if they
had been more chips. The deluge
from tho south which came down
Chicago avenue was fully as large as
the other, and quickly overflowed all
the property in that vicinity. Where
tho gas house stands the water
reache d the roof of the building, and
fully $2,000 will bo required to repair
the da inugo done to this property.
Kin.ers b isement was Hooded and
part of tho family which tlcep there
bareiv ec iped before the water
reached the ceiling.
Jas. W. Sago suffered tho saddest
1o.tS of any ono in the city. His livery
barn has a commodious basement in
which ho keeps his horses. Tho flood
poured in so sudden after the sower
was overtaxed that the horses tied in
their stalls were drowned before they
could be reached. Ten head of good
livery horses were iost, and eight
other head owned as follows which
wore in the stable wore also lost: A
II. Eikenbary, two; George W. Young,
one; Zuckweiler & Lutz, three; Gus
Ueinhackle one; Arthur Helps, one.
The only animal saved was a jack
which was taken up through the side
walk. Mr. Sage's loss will reach at
least $1,500, while that of the others
will not be far from $800.
The buildiDg owned by Mrs. Am
brose Patterson was badly damaged
and several hundred dollars will be
required to repair it.
lJall & Son suffered from the loss in
their basement being Hooped.

A Narrow Kucapu.
Yesterday about two o'clock p. in.
Marion Waters, a single man, who
works in Steiraker's gang at the L. &
M. shops narrowly escaped death.
Several of the boys were raising a
large beam 5x9 inches, and about
thirty feet long, to its place under a
freight car which they were repairing
when the beam fell striking Mr. Wa
ters, who was kneeling under the c;ir,
upon the shoulder and neck knocking
him down. The only thing that saved
his life was that the timber caught on
a trestle and broke its fall. He was
taken to Dr. Livingston's office where
he was made as comfortable as possi
ble. He was afterwards taken to his
home where he will probably remain
tome time before reporting for duty.
Freaks of Lightning.
Lightning struck Henry Hempel's
house yesterday, occupied by A. L.
Munger, and made the bricks fly from
thechiuraey, but did slight damage.
The queerest feat was about four
o'clock this morning when the light
ning struck a cistern pump in a cis
tern at one of tho Ellingson hci?ses on
South Sixth street, and fairly lifted
the cistern out of the ground. It looks
like a dynamite bomb had baen
dropped, as it tore a hole fifteen feet
wide at the top and knocked a hole in
the bottom. No one was injured.
Secured an Engine.
Mayor Richey telegraphed the may
or of Omaha last night for an engine
to pump water out of cellars here, and
it was promptly sent down on No. 6,
which was late, and arrived at five
o'clock this morning. Two firemen
came aloatr, and the engine has been
busy on the Gering-Uerold block
most of the time, while a dozen hand
pumps are at work on tho other
Mrs. Chaplain Wright.
The correct time of Mrs. Wright's
funeral was given yesterday but those
who wish to see her can do so by call

row as the casket will not be opened
at the church.

700,000,000 it Year.
Tho nniriuut of money expended by
tourists in Kurnpo has, if oflirial rrcunl''
abroad are to be accepted its auth line,
increased enormously of latts years.
Thero has been recently filed with t!'
Swiss minister of finance and -ust.n...
at Bern a detailed statement of .u
receipts in that country, from whi' !i it
apicurs that the gross receipts of Swi.-s
hotels rose from .12, NOO.OOO francs i:i
1880 to 1 14, 000 in l'Jl. The entire
annual excuses of the Swiss repil iic
amount in a year to lx tween SO.ooo.ooo
and 1)0,000,000 francs (the budget for
fliis year is given at the latter li;;ure I,
and it would seem, therefore, very nuieli
as if the hotels of Switzerland take in
in a year more than the government it
Tho Swiss figures aro not the only
ones furnished in Fuvopo recently n
this point. A French rei.ord shows that
every year thero aro 270,000 foreigners
who pass from a fortnight to a whole
winter on the Riviera. Lvcry person is
Bupposed to exjK'iid on an average 1,000
francs, or $200, in tho country. In oth
er words, tho foreign visitors spend in
tho country every winter tho sum of
$54,000,000. The English aro put down
as contributing one-third of this amount;
tho French themselves contribute anoth
er third; (Jerniaus, IJclgians, Dutch,
Russians and Americans contribute t he
remainder. From being a poor country
when it was annexed to France in ISdO
Nice has become one of the richest de
partments of the republic.
Some figures recently compiled of the
revenues to hotels from tourists in J'aris
show the average number of foivi ;;n
visitors to be (JO, 000. It is customary
to estimate at 10 francs, or 2, a day
tho hotel bills of strangers in I'ai is.
Estimating at 2 a day each tho hotel
bills of (50, 000 tourists and at about as
much more their other outlays it is to
bo seen that tourists in Paris can be put
down for an expenditure of nearly 2.j0, -000
Tho total sum expended by tourists
in Europe in a year is probably not very
far from 700,000,000, and a very con
siderable portion of this conies from tho
pockets, tho purses and the bankers'
balances of Americans, who are pro
verbially tho most liberal among travel
ers. Russians come second, Brazilians

Readers of .hat charming work of my
lato friend Wilkie Collins, "The Moon
stone, " will remember tho sleepwalk
ing teats ot Mr. i-ranklm Hlake win n
under tho influence of an opiate. What
the novelist describes as a piece of lic
tion may bo paralleled from the sober
records of science.
McNish, in his classic volume on
"Sleep," tells us of a shepherd lad who,
wrapt in slumber, walked miles to t ho
place where his flock was pastured,
waded through a river and returned
homo without waking. In another cuso
a lad in his sleep scaled a precipitous
clifF and brought homo from it an
eagle's nost, wliich was found under his
bed in tho morning.
Abercrombie's case of the Scott :
lawyer who, when worried over a per
plexing case, was scan by his wife to
rise from his bed in tho night is an
other illustration of tho occasionally
purposive character of somnambulism,
when, directed by its private secretaries,
the sleeping ego is apparently roused
from its couch and made to act the part
of a pure automaton. This individual
went to a writing desk which stood in
his bedroom, sat down before the desk
and wrote for some timo. Then, rep-lacing
the paper within the desk, he re
turned to bed.
In the morning he told his wife of a
dream he had experienced, in which ho
imagined ho had given a satisfactory
opinion on tho case which was trou
bling his mind. lie expressed regret
that he could not recall the train of
thought represented in his dream. On
his wife directing him to his writing
desk, he found therein the opinion in
question clearly written out and in
Bvery respect satisfactory. Andrew
Wilson, M. D., in Harper's Magazine
Have Von Seen It?
Every big railroad in this country has
a freight car in its equipment bearing
the number 12,345, and yet I'll lay
reasonable odds that you may tramp
this town over and you will not bo abk
to find a man, I care not how much he
has traveled, who has ever seen a car
with that number. Among railroad
men it is known as the "sequence car"
or the "one-two-three-four-five car.'
Perhaps you never looked for it. I have.
For years in my travels I made it a
practice to get out whenever the train
stopped and take a look at the freight
cars in sight, and I have met drummers
who told me they did the same thing,
but never a glimpse did I get of that
car nor did I ever run across a man
who had been so fortunate. Try it. Go
up to the freightyards in this city or
across the river. You will find hundreds
of cars, but it's $10 to a pint of peanuts
that car 12,345 will not be among them.

Ancient Playing Cards.
The ancient Tarot packs were the ear

cards. These cards are still used in re
mote parts of Italy, France and Switzer
land and are made in Florence, the de
signs being handed down from genera

Ostriches, which are supposed to flour

Electric Bitters is a medicine suited
for any season, but perhaps more gen
erally needed when the languid, ex
hausted feeling previiis, when the
liver is torpid and sluggish and the
need of a tonic and alterative is felt.
A prompt use of this medicine has
often abated long and perhaps fatal
bilious fevers. No medicine will act
more surely in counteracting and free
