Sloped this morning to be James
Brannan and who ran atuwart Chief
of the Bulls Rainey yesterday was
haled befcre Judge Archer in the
his condition. He did unfold him
tale which reaus like a page from
'the western romances of Oil Coombs,
in the beginning, James the unready,
beat the side doors from the village
of .North riatte arar in western e
braska into the town which Jim
Dahlman made famous. Here the
bulls who wander up and down the
streets, told him again to beat it,
and he took passage for Nebraska
City, realizing that anything went in
that town. But, as has been well
said by the poet alas and alackaday,
he mounted the wrong Pullman and
mistook a Burlington train for one
on the Missouri Pacific. Herein
arises cause No. 1 of his undoing,
for who ever heard of a man en
tirely sober making this mistake.
Finding himself rolling into a splen
did city with towers and minarets
and maezzins and things, and i:
thrnl'td with the grandeur of the
city, ho dismounted and made him
self at home in this city for be
lieve me, people, this was the place.
And It has gilded places where the
cup which cheers and Inebriate? Is

long finger to James, who entered
their portals and herein imbibed
sundry and many beakers of amber
colored fluid, likewise several and
many short, red ones until the at
mosphere waxed rosy and the hectic
flush pervaded the landscape. Anon
came General Reaction and the at
mosphere and the landscape assumed
somber hues and war and desolation
seemed to his troubled vision about
to ensnare James. Then went he
forth into the world albeit some
what unsteadily, and here he found
the chief of the bulls awaiting him,
not at the church, but at the county
court house, as told yestere'en. And
when he had finished his tale, he un
folded unto Jedge Archer that he
fain would depart the city and hie
him afar even unto the wilds of Ne
braska City. And the Jedge thought
It was well, and to speed the parting
guest he annexed a bit of Jesilce
yclept, one dollar's worth with trim
mings, the same to be In full force
and effect should James be found In
the precincts wherein Jedge Archer
held forth one hour later. And
James departed merrily on his way
content that it so came about and
happy even though he had lost his
coat and sundry shekels In the

Omaha is going up with the specific
intention of asking that the next con

greatest service which a fleet of boat3
on the Missouri would be to this sic
tlon would be In transporting grain
to tho gulf its Interest to farmers can
be readjly seen.

at Chlllicothe Flood Covers Whole
Valley of Missouri.
Kansas City, July 8. Swollen by
unprecedented rains and by melted
snows from the mountains, down
through the Missouri valley, the riv
ers left their banks, causing much
damage in many parts of Missouri and
Kansas. Tho results of tho flood are
Train No. C of the Atchison, Topeka
and Santa Fe railway, which left
Kansas City at 9:23 a. m. for Denver,
met with a wreck at Pomona, Kan. Of
tho ten coaches which mado up the
train, four, a baggago car and three
day coaches, left the track and rolled
luto eighteen feet of water. The road
bed was covered with water and the
train was proceeding Blowly, when the
tracks spread and overturned the
coaches. The overturned coaches nro
supposed to have been empty.
Communication with tho town was
Interrupted. Although rajlway offi
cials denied that any one was killed
or injrued, a telephone message re
ports two people Injured.
Pomona is almost completely Inun
dated, the Marias des Cygnes river at
that point being three miles wide.
Train Sinks Slowly.
It appears that the train, which bad
been dotoured from tho main line over
tho Emporia branch, was running
along smoothly through the water.
when it began to sink on the under
mined' tracks. The coaches sank bo
gradually that the passengers and
crew were ablo to get Into tho Pull
man cars before the other coachea
finally toppled over and snnk from
view. People from the surrounding
country, attracted by the cries of 300
marooned passengers, Immediately en
deavored to Btart on a rescue. Rafts
were hastily constructed and the few
boats available were pushed out, but
by this tlmo the current was so swift
around the train that only the most
venturesomo were ablo to reach the
people. It was after dark before a
rescue, by means of a series of boats
tied with ropes, was effected'. Boat
trips of from one to two miles were
made to the nearest farmhouses free
of the flood and the passengers all
were finally taken to Bafoty. The pas
sengers probably will have to remaja
at the farmhouses until the surround
ing flood subsides.
At Chlllicotho, Mo., on the Grand
river, six men were swept from a
bridge and were seen floating down
the stream. Whether they reached
shore was not learned. Hundreds of
people at this place have been forced
to leave their homes. Residents in the
unaffected districts have started to
bake bread by the wholesale for the
sufferers, and a relief train loaded
with supplies hag been sent out from,
At Pattonsburg, Mo., over a thou
sand people were imprisoned on roofs
or In second stories and the situation
was hourly growing more acute. Boats
and supplies were rushed there from
nearby points, but with little prospect
of crossing the two miles of swirling
water between the marooned residents
and dry land.
Many women and small children are
among those held prisoners by the
rjver and the condition Is causing gen
eral alarm. Already at least one man
Is drowned, having been can-Jed away
by the current in the main streot.
From as far down tho Missouri as
Jefferson City reports of crop damage
in the river bottoms are reaching here
and the Inevitable further rise In that
region will swell the total. Most of
the wheat In the lowlands has beei
hnrvested, but the corn crop In some
cf tho rich bottom fields will bo a to
tal loss, It Is feared.
