Countv Clerk.
The following from Weeping Wa
ter under date of July 2, give a very
clear idea of the condition of the
c;ops there and the weather that has
been so wet in the past few weeks
as to cause considerable annoyance to
the farmers in their work.
"Weather conditions in this vicinity
are causing much trouble and worry
for the farmers although as yet there
has been no great destruction of
?rops. The worst storm so far was
that on Wednesday, when a perfect
deluge of rain came, accompanied by
a stiff wind. The precipitation in
about 45 minutes was 1.45 inches. The
heavy downpour and the violent wind
flattened the wheat in most of the
fields throughout this section and it
was feared that a severe loss would
be entailed. Last night another rain
of .43 inches came and made condi
tions considerably worse. The ma
jority of farmers, however, believe
that unless further damage is done,
much of the wheat will raise itself
except on real low cr very rich
ground. It is thought that most of
that which does not raise can be har
vested by extra work and the runing
of the binder one way of the field.
Harvest will be started Monday if
weather permits and a heavy yield is
expected. Corn in this vicinity is
further along than mostp laces in the
state, but is getting very weedy, as
ther is very little chance to get into
the fields as long as the rains con
tinue." Don't use harsh physics. The reac
tion weakens the bowels, leads to
chronic constipation. Get Doan's
Regulets. They operate easily. 25c
at all stores.
Will Put in Stock of Buick Autos.
T. H. Pollock has rented the vacant
room in the Riley block formerly oc
cupied by the postoffice and will at
once change the plate glass front and
put in a stock of Buick Automobiles
and also use the room for his Real
Estate and Insurance business.

Copenhagen Report Says Two

as They Continue Desperate Sweep
Forward Recurrence of Heavy Ar.
tillery Fire by Germans In France.
I-ondon. July 3. Dispatches from
Stockholm and Copenhagen give mea
ger reports of a naval engagement In
the Baltic sea off the east roast of
the island of Gothland. Several war
ships are said to have been engaged
A message lroui Copenhagen states
that the German battleship Wittles
bach, which was damaged In the ac
tion, and a battleship of the K:ier
class, with many shots under its water
line, have returned to Kiel.
Amm er report of the actionstates
that the German mine layer Albatros
was chased by four Russian cruisers
and ran aground to escape capture.
Twentyone of the mine layer's crew
were killed and twenty-seven wound
ed. It is s'ated that a German torpedo
boat has arrived on the cjast coast of
Gothland, with many wounded.
Zamoic Taken by Teutont.
The sudden recurrence of heavy ar
tillery fire by the Germans at many
points in France is a marked feature
of the fighting on the western front
but in the meantime the AustroGer-
man advance in Galicia and in Poland
Is unchecked and the Teutons have
shown no disposition to diminish the
Intensity of their eastern offensive.
The Polish fortress of Zamosc ha-j
been captured and progress In other
sectors of strategic importance in the
east is claimed by Berlin. For weeks
it has been the same story in this the
atcr of war an Austro-German rush, a
Russian retreat and the end is no? In
A further report regarding the Dar
danelles operations claims that the
colonial troops have not been checked
fn their efforts to advance, but that
they have been used merely to keep
the Turks on the front too busy to
send reserves to that portiou of the
line where the Anglo-French troops
made an advance of l.cmo yards.
Five Ships Sunk by Submarines.
Three big British stea,mers, the Tn
glemoor. Caucasian and Welbury, the

The opening of the Popular Variety
store of R. W. Knorr, on South Sixth
street, last evening was a great suc
cess in every way and fully 600 per
sons called at the store, and the ladies
were each presented with a handsome
carnation which was a very dainty
and much appreciated souvenir of the
event. The opening proper was this
morning, when at the opening hour a
bargain in graniteware dishpans was
offered, and inside of six minutes 200
of the dishpans were sold, and so
urgent was the crowd of bargain
seekers that one lady fainted in the
jam at the store. The success of the
opening has been very pleasing to Mr.
