New York 225 Philadelphia 52 Baltimore 23 Pittsburg and vicinity 51 NEW YORK, July 4.- -The heat which has worked such havoc on this city recently was somewhat mitigated late yesterday by a succession of thun derstorms, which sent the mercury tumbling down ten degrees between the hours of 4:30 and 8 p. m. Never did a downpour of rain receive such an enthusiastic reception as did this one. The thunder and lightning were heavy and many houses were struck, causing fires, but so far as known no person was killed or injured. During the last downpour hail fell in quantities. It was after the hottest July 2 in the history of the local weather bu reau and a day that almost reached the city record of September 7. 1SS1. that this cant relief came. The morning opened with the tem perature at S3 at 6 a. m.. and in an hour it had gone to S7, and in another hour had climbed a point higher, jump ing all the way to 93 by 9 o'clock. The wind was scarcely perceptible and the humidity, which was 60 per cent, aggravated the conditions. Then the mercury kept on climbing, registering 95 at 11 o'clock and going up to 98 between 12 and 1 and stayed there un til after 3 o'clock. The humidity had fallen to 41 per cent. The suffering caused by the heat was unprecedent ed. All the ambulances in the city a? well as the patrol wagons and many other vehicles were kept busj- answer ing calls. At the rate of about one a minute the calls came in over the po lice wires all d?.y. breaking all records for the amount of ambulance service and providing patients enough to crowd all the hos-pitnls. The ofTirial temperature up in the lofry weather bureau remained at JK. the temperatures on the street level ranged from 100 to 10C. The terrible fatality cf the heat wa shown by the large percentage cf deaths among those prostrated. Out of "28 cases of prostration leported un to 11:30 o'clock last night, KS resulted fatally. Among the most prominent victim were the Rev. Dr. Newland Maynard. the Episcopal clergyman and lecturer, and Jacob Rogers, the former locomo tive builder. Between the hours of 2 a. m. Tues day. and 12:45 a. m. yesterday, Wed nesday, there were in the boroughs of Manhattan and the Bronx, 15S deaths and 17S prostrations. The same weather conditions which prevailed in this city were experienced In Brooklyn. It was estimated by th1 police at midnight that during Tues day there had been sixty deaths and 150 prostrations by the heat in Brook lyn. PROCLAMATION IS READY. President Will Soon Inane Statement Opening Indian Reservation. WASHINGTOX, July 4 Secretary Hitchcock informed the cabinet today that the proclamation for the opening of the Kiowa, Comanche and Apach? Indian reservations in Oklahoma was completed. The secretary will go over it with the president tomorrow and it will be issued either tomorrow eveninc or July 4. It will fix the day of open ing and will prescribe the methods and rules to be observed by prospective? homesteaders. Secretaries Hay and Long were tho absentees at today's meeting. Little business was transacted. The most im portant action decided upon was a change in the civil service rules re garding clerks and carriers in the pos tal service. The age limits within which applicants could apply for posi tions as carriers heretofore have been 21 years as the minimum and 40 as tha maximum. The minimum for clerke has been 18 years, with no maximum. The civil service commission proposed a uniform minimum of 18 and a maxi mum of 40 years. It was the opinion of the postmaster general and the rest of the cabinet, however, that this maximum was too low and it was de cided to fix 45 years as the maximum for both classes of employes. Fxctn About .lone Weather. OMAHA, July 4 Only twice in thirty-one years has the mean temper ature of June been so high as in 1901. In 1S71 average for the month was 7C and in 18S1 the average was 75. This year the average was 75, three de grees above normal for the month. The highest temperature ever record ed at Omaha in June was on the 28th, when the mercury reached 100. The mean maximum temperature for the month was S5.4. NEBRASKA SOLD WAR HORSES. Two fhonaand of Them Gallop for Enf link Army Against tun itoers. LINCOLN, Neb.. July 1 During the last two years Nebraska farmers and stockmen have sold to England over 2,000 horses for service in the war in South Africa. The price paid has varied from $30 to $90. but the gen cral average has been $35 per head Most of these horses came from the western part of the state ard were told at South Omaha or Kansas City where th3 English purchrsing agents maintained headquarters. There is still a good demand for the to'igh an imals known as "war hordes." The dealing just now is inactive, but it is said that the purchasing serson will soon open and that there will be a ready market for all hordes that can be supplied. When England began purchasing horses in America the agerts demand ed young, thoroughbred animals and the price paid sometimes went as high as $100, but they took only animals that were selected with great care and were soimd in every bone and fiber. The extravangance o these op erations was soon demonstrated and the English agents in America were in structed to be less particu'ar in select ing the animals. Horses are extreme ly sensitive to climatic changes and conditions and it was found that even the best American horses could sur vive only about six weeks of active siervice in the South African war. The agents began experiment with common stock and it was found that the ordinary plains or range horses from Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana or other western territory could do just as effective work and live as long in South Africa as the high-priced thor oughbred horse.

Latest Ouotationa from Sooth Omaha and Kansas Citr. SOUTH OMAHA. Cattle There was not a heavy supply of cattle, but the market was very slow in opening and when trailing did bepin it was generally on a basis of lower values. Chicago was reported steady to a dime lower and that was not far from the situation at this point. There were about fifty-five or elxty curs of beef Fteers in the yards, and while Bume of the better grades of heavy cattle brought right around st.ucly prices, packers were bidding on the great bulk of the offerings right around a dime lower. There were only about eleven cars of cows end heif ers in the yurds besides the usual odd-5 and ends. The best dry lot stuff and also some of the choicer bunches of grass stuff sold at what looked to be about steady Vrlces. The less desirable grades, how ever, were very slow sale and in the ma jority of cases they sold about a dime lower than at the close of last week. Bulls were also slow sale and unless they were choice they were lower. The same could be said of calves and stags. Ther.i were only a few cars of stockers and feeders here and the demand was even lighter than the supply. As a general thing the few that changed hands brought a little less money than the same kind sold for last week. Hogs There was a fairb' liberal run of hogs, and as other markets were all quoted lower prices at this point eased o!t a trifle. The bulk of the hogs sold at .ri.S7Vj and K.M. with the long string at $i.9. The quality of the off (.rings as a whole was not what might be called choice, and as a result there were not many high juiced loads. The top was $j.fCi. which was paid for a load weighing 376 pounds. The market was not particu larly active, but still practically every thing was sold in good season, there being but little change in the market from start to finish.

Hot Weather Kipen Wheat and Corn Allows Satisfactory Condition. LINCOLN, July 4. United States department of agriculture, Nebraska section, climate and crop service of th'3 weather bureau, weekly crop bulletin. University of Nebraska, Lincoln, general summary: The past week hai been hot and dry, with an excess of sunshine. The daily mean tempera ture has averaged 12 degrees above normal, with maximum temperatures exceeding 100 degrees in nearly all parts of the state. The rainfall of the week was con fined to a few light, scattered showers, generally too light to be of any mate rial benefit to crops. The hot, dry weather has ripened the winter wheat very fast, and har vesting has made rapid progress. Th3 crop is generally good and was net in jured by the weather of the week Oats in southern counties have been further damaged, and in some few- places have been cut for hay. In northern counties all small grain is in excellent condition. Corn has grown well in northern counties and good progress has been made in culti vating corn and killing weeds. In southern counties corn has grown slowly and has suffered from a lack of moisture, but no permanent damage has been done to the crop generally. G. A. LOVELAND. Section Director, Lincoln, Neb.

July 4 The report from Denison, Texas, of the formation of a company to make a rush for the Kiowa lands in Oklahoma on the the ory that they are now public lands and subject to homestead settlement, and that no restriction can be daced on their settlement, is a reiteration of a claim that the interior department already has found groundless.

Recently at the Royal Institution, Professor Jagadis Chunder Bose proved that they can, in much the same way as animse be ings. He struck a piece of copper pinched a piece of zinc, gave it poison and administered an antidote, and threw light upon an artificial retina. In each case the electrical emotion, as registered by the galvanometer, was painful to witne.cs. As the London Mail suggests in telling the storjv there is an opening for a society for the prevention of cruelty to metals. Honors for Sullivan.

Jones of Burdett, and one of the most popular ladies in Hodgeman County has been a martyr to headache for years. It has made her life a continual misery to her. She suffered pains in the small of the back, and had every symptom of Kidney and Urinary Trou ble. Today she is as well as any lady ia the state. This remarkable change was due en tirely to a remedy recently introduced here. It is called Dodd's Kidney Pills, and many peop:e claim it to be an in fallible cure for Kidney Diseases. Rheumatism and Heart Trouble. Mrs. Freeman heard of Dodd's Kid ney Pills, and almost with the first dose, she grew better. Ia a week, her headaches and other pains had gene, and she had left behind her all her illness and days of misery. A medicine that can do for tn7 one what Dodd's Kidnc'y Pills have done for this lady, is very sure soon to be universally usd, and already the de mand fcr these pills has increased wonderfully in Pawnee and Hodge man Counties, where the particulars of Mrs. Freeman's case and its cure are known.
