Mighty Downpour
Water Brings Ter
rific Damage.
Every Basement on Main Street Flooded
and Thousands of Dollars Worth of
Merchandise Destroyed.
Owing to a delay in issuing this edition The Joctrnal is this, Thursday
morning, able to give a brief account of the most terrible disaster that ever
occurred in this city.
Nearly all day long yesterday the rain fell in in torrents, and about 11
o'clock the downpour increased and kept increasing until 1 o'clock, when
Main street which ia about the lowest place in the city was completely flooded.
Torrents of water poured over the sidewalks and into the basements, carrying
destruction to thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise.
About one o'clock the tire bell was rung, bringing many men to the
scene of the main disaster who did all in their power to save all that was pos
sible, but very little could be done. The cause of the ringing of the bell, a
f re in Waterman's lumber yard caused by slacking lime, was soon sub
dued. In many places the cellars were not only tilled but water stood from one
to two feet deep on the main floors. This was notably so in Gering & Co.,
Wm Ilerold & Son's andLebnhoff Bros.
Sidewalks were carried for blocks and out houses were overturned and
borne up:n the rushing waters for hundreds of feet. Foundation walls were
crashed in by the seething flood and Destruction seems at last to have found
its most active agent water.
At the southeast corner of Fifth and Main sts. the sidewalk is washed out
and the pavement is caved in nearly to the middle of both Main and Fifth
streets. The same state of affairs exists in front of Weckbach & Co.'s store
In Waterman block. The new brick pavement in front of Gering & Co.'s,
llerold'e, Lehnhoff Bros.' and Schiappacasse's Is all torn up and nearly all the
wooden sidewalks on East Washington avenue, and from Seventh to Fifth on
Vine and on Sixth from Pearl to V ine, have been carried away.
One of the most terrible losses was that at the barn of Jas. Sage, corner
I Sixth and Pearl, where twenty horses were drowned. The animals were kept
in the basement, and before the danger was realized or known, there was
eight feet of water there and rescue was out of the question. Three of the
horses belonged to Zuckweiler & Lutz, two to A. It. Eikenbary, one each to
August Reinhackle, George Young and Arthur Helps, and twelve to Mr.
The gas works opposite this barn on Pearl street are probably almost
completely ruined. They stand away below grade, and water even at ten
o'clock this morning was nearly to the roof of the building. The damage here
must be very heavy.
At about two o'clock the mayor telephoned to Omaha for a Are engine
to pump the water out of the basements, and it arrived at about six o'clock
I on No. G which had been delayed by the flood. Since then it has been doing
good work.
Conservative estimates of the loss in thv city places it at full $50,000 and
it may be more. The most heavy individual losers are probably Gering &
Co., C. E. Wescott & Son and Wm. Ilerold & Son who place their respective
damages at from $3,000 to $3,500. A detailed schedule of the losses will be
published in the next issue.
The Burlington shops and yards were flooded and there is no one at work
there this morning except those who are cleaning up and putting things in
shape. Mud is several inches deep on some of the shop floors, and the lumber
yard has been torn up In pretty bad shape.
Consumption Cured.
Last November Mr. Joseph Jarr:.
fiainter, of 325 W. Pearl St., Indiana
is, Ind., was at death's door w ith (juki
consumption. Wasted to a skelet-;
his lungs a mass of ulceratiou; hi;
death was hourly awaited by hi doctor
and family. He was kept in a coustant
stupor with opium. A friend, thinking
to relieve his terrible cough, gave him a
bottle of Brazilian Balm. Seeing its
wonderful effect, the doctor advised its
continued use. Mr. James soon after
dismissed his doctor, and depended
on the Balm alone. His recovery was
rapid and complete, and in February he
returned to work. His lungs are sound,
and his weight greater than at any time
in his life. His recovery is regarded as
almost a miracle.
In consumption beware of cough mix
tures and prescriptions that contain
opium. Opium paralizes the nerves,
and gives the comma bacillus a good
chance to destroy the lungs. It is
always fatal. Brazilian Balm does not
contain a trace of any opiate, but stimu
lates the nerves with new life and power,
destroys the microbe, and restores all
that is left of the diseased lungs to a
sound and healthy state which no other
remedy has ever been known to accom
plish. '

A Naval Ceremony That, I Not What It
I'sed to Be.
In the old navy, when United State-
Hhips were actually ships with yard-,
tho Los'n's mate's call, "All haul.-,
cheer ship!" was followed by a much
more picturesque ceremony than is pofc
sible now, when the vessels of the navy
are fitted with but a single yard and
that only used for signaling. At the
word of command "Man the yards'"
there was an amount of acrobatio scur
rying on the main decks of the old ships
th;it was calculated to make the ship
visitor hold his breath, the thing look
ed so dangerous. The men forward in
l lnejacket uniform would fairly leap
up tho rope ladders, and utmost by the
time the echoes of the command had
died away every yard on each maet
would support Pcores of men and boys,
all standing erect, most of them only
held up by the crossed arms of the men
beside them. This representation of a
cross was held by all of the men, and
it was their business to stand thus with
absolute statuesqueness. Then the com
mand "Cheer ship!" would be bawled
out on deck by the chief bos'n's mute,
and there would be a yell from cathead
to niizzen that couldn't help but warm
tbo blood of evorybody within hearing
of it. When the men manned the yards
with all sail except topsails and stnnsuils
set.Vuch a picture was really beautiful,
the men's nniformsof bice standing out
in sapphirelike contrast to the cameo
whiteness of the shrouds. This was a
ceremony on all formal occasions, such
as the visit aboard the old ships of dis
tinguished men. And "Man the yards 1"
and "Cheer ship 1" were commands al
ways given when one of the old clippers
of the United States tavy was either de
parting for or arriving from a foreign
station. Washington Star.
