tlieu Tsin was destroyed by the

yuvigii concessions have been seri

uis news is received here and is
confirmed by ollicial dispatches to tue
Japanese legation at Herlin and by a
message from Admiral Kempff to the
navy depart inent at Washington, and
repeated to the Loudon papers by theiir
New York correspondents.
It appears from the dispatches sent
by boat from Taku to Chee Foo that
the iJoxers cast lot with the Chinese
regular troops and vigorously bombard
ed Tien Tsin, which was defended by
a foreign g-arrison of from o.OOO to 3,
SoO troops, mostly Russians. Several
parts of the town occupied by the
natives had been tired, and fierce, con
tinuous fighting had been in progress
for at least thirty-six hours.
The belief that tlie Chinese are using
!ig guns ou the town makes the situa
tion at Tieu Tsin all the more serious.
In the meantime the powers are mass
ing a relief force at Taku, thirty miles
away, and as soon as it is fully or
ganized It will march ou Tien Tsin.
A number of field guns and pieces of
heavy artillery mostly taken from the
-warships are to be transported to
Tien Tsin. so that the Euroieau force
can reply to the Chinese heavy fire ef
fectively. The English consulate at Shanghai
Is said to have received from influen
tial natives reports of a tragedy in
the palace at Peking, though precisely
what Is not defined. . The consuls at
Shanghai still believe the foreign min

MelTord was twenty-seven year-, old

niac, llo was seen two or tun e times
between then and midnight, but the
police failed to Hi d him.
Shortly before f o'clock this morn
ing Reginald Andrews, tho janitor at
tho old ladies' home, was awakened by
crashing glass. Tho next moment
MelTord stood before him, stark naked
-winding a neckyoke.
"Your time has come," shouted Mcf
ford. "What time do you mean asked
Andrews with a remarkable coolness.
"I have murdered one who'e family
tonight and 1 am going to kill you
next and then everybody in the home,"
MelTord swung the nockyoko . and
tried to brain Andicws. Tho latter
dodged and grabbed tho weapon,
threw MetToid on tho bed and choked
him until ho begged for mercy. Then
Andrews agreed to give him a bath, a
suit of clothes and some breakfast,
which apparently satisfied him.
Hushing through the house And rows
locked the twelve or fourteen old ladies
in their rooms, notified tho police by
telephone and then ran across the
street to the homo of Joseph Drake for
assistance. Drake dressed, picked up
a revolver, and they started out.
As they did so, MelTord, carrying an
ax, was seen to plunge through a win
dow in tho home of James Fitz-dmrrons,
about 150 yard away. As ho entered
the room Mrs. Fitzsimmons uttered a
scream. MetTord swung the ax ard
brought it down upon her head. Her
uplifted arm saved her life Th arm
was broken in two places and she sus

Fitzsimmons hearing the screnru Jart?d

maniac. MelTord ehoQk him o(T and
sent tho ax crashing into his sku.l,

dashing up stairs, Meffprd attacked
Miss Kate Fitzsimmons, inflicting a
number of scalp wound?. When he
came down stairs Drake had just en
tered the house. Drake dropped to his
knee to shoot. He snapped the trigger
four times, but there were four otnpty
chambers and each time -the hammer
came down on one of them. Then Mef
ford struck him on the head with the
ax. A second and third blow followed
and Drake fell over. Andrews escaped
the maniac asrain. MetTord took Drake's
revolver and ran out of the house. Af

in receipt of the following letter from
well known St. Louis furniture
St. Louis, June 23. Mr. Israel
Peariman, Plattsmouth Neb., Dear
Sir: We note your letter regarding
ubscription to the library fund, and in
reply to same will say, that we are
always disposed to do all we can to
help any good movement along, but
just at present it is hard to say what
we would feel like sparing, as we may
need a great deal ourselves to straigh
ten out troubles that we are having on
account of the street car strike here in
St. Louis, which you no doubt have
read about. We will, however, have
our Mr. J. L. Fleck when he calls on
ou shortly to confer with you regard
ing this and we will then see what we
can do. Hoping business i3 good with
you, we remain vours truly

Comes from Dr. D. B. Cargile, of
Washita, I. T. He writes: "Four
bottles of Electric Bittera has' cured
Mrs. Brewer of scrofula, which had
caused her great suffering for years.
Terrible sores would break out on her
head and face, and the best doctors
could give no help; but her ctre is com
plete and her health is excellent."
This shows what thousands have
proved, that Electric Bitters is the
best blood purifier known. It's the
Bupreme remedy for eczema, tetter,
salt rheum, ulcers, boils, and running
sores. It stimulates liver, kidneys and
bowels, expels poisons, helps digestion
builds up the strength. Only 50 cents.

A special from Dakota City, Neb., in
today's State Journal, says: "Farmers
who had set to work cutting a channel
for the Missouri river at Renningors'
neck, ten miles north of Sioux City,
now confront an armed posse sent
there by Sheriff Sides of Dakota
county, and a fight between the two is
oxpoeted at any hour. If the farmers
succeed, thoj' will rob Nebraska of
27,000 acres of the most fertile land in
the west and add it to the area of
South Dakota, at the nock. The tor
tuous Missouri flows fifteen miles in
reaching a point but 100 yards distant
from its present channel, and all the
land included in its groat bend would
be cut olT. The sudden rush of wator
through the neck would also do dam
age to lands below. All the farmers
on the neck are interested in helping
the Missouri, which in tho last year
haa made great headway through the
neck in cutting across lota at that
point. Last fall clandestine efforts to
this end were attempted, but frus
tat ted by the authorities, and today
these efforts were renewed. Among
tho membersof the posse which hur
ried to the scene heavily armed were
hankers and business men of Jackson,
"This movement upon the part of
South Dakota citizens haa been talked
for many years, having its origin
among the people of McCook, S. D
McCook is a small town at the ex
treme north end of the bend. The
bend is some thirty-five miles around
and not more than a quarter of a mile
across at its neck. This neck is low
land, covered with willows and small
limber. At one time probably the
channel of the river ran across it.
Residents of the bottoms along the
Missouri, east of Elk Point, have al
ways contended if a channel would be
cut through the neck and the river
straightened it would prevent the re
currence of the spring Hoods which
have eo frequently overflowed the
southwestern portions of Union county.
Heretofore when the river broke up in
the spriner it would gorge at this bend
and shoot the water over the country
to the depth of several feet. With a
channel cut through the narrow neck
the water will pass through without
backing up over the farms."

Last fall I sprained my left hip
while handling some heavy boxes.
The doctor I cal led on said at first it
was a slight strain and would soon be
well, but it grew worse and the doc
tor then said I had rheumatism. It
continued to grow worse and I could
hardly get around to-work. I went to
a drug store and the druggist rec
ommended me to try Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. I tried it and one-balf of
a 50-cent bottle cured ma entirel3'. I
now recommend it to all my frinnda.

The team attached to 1I nail's big
ice wagon was standing on top of the
hill at Fifth and Granite streets this
morning when they got frightened at
some object and started down the in
cline at a break-neck speed. They
turned up street at the corner of Fifth
and Main and ihenco south on Sixth
and were finally stopped near Halt's
tin shop. The runaway outfit came in
contact with Louis Young's buggy,
which was standing on Sixth street,
and the shafts and one wheel of the
latter were broken. There were quite
a uumbor of teams on the streets at
the time, and it was indued a wonder
that the frightened animals did not
cause more damage.

I awoke last night with severe pains in
my stomach. 1 never felt so badly in
my lifo. When I came down to work
this morning I felt so weak I could
hardly work. I went to Miller & Mo-

ommended ChamberlaliVa Cholic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It
worked like magic and one dose fixed
me all right. It certainly ia the finest
thing I ever used for stomach trouble.

hereafter, for I should not care to en
dure the sufferings of last night again
