Porto Rico is the next point of attack
by the U. S. land and naval forces which
will doubtless take place within a fort

war tax, claims that the f 5,000,000 be
quetlied to bim by his father was not
a gift but a salary of $500,000, a year
for a period of ten years. Thus it will
be seen that the rich will find some way

taxes. The poor man mint pay it.

Coming to the dry creek not more
than a hundred yards or so from tbe
Dakota Junction depot, they discovered
it containing back water from White
river and the ladies asked to get out of
the buggy and the gentlemen let them
alight and then drove into the water
little dreaming its depth or lurking dan
ger. The ladies started to go around on
the railroad track and . were not to ex
ceed flfty feet from the men when the
team buggy and men plunged into a
hola that afterwards measured fourteen
fent deep. Tht.y all went down together.
Mrs, Thompaon last saw her husband
clinsring to the bows of the vehicle and
as he could swim, she believes he was
held by some fastening. His brother
Henry could not swim and floated off
down with the tide water. He rose and
sank three times and the last time Mrs.
Thompson who ran along the waters
edge could almost reach him. '
Mrs. Thompson was Miss Lulu Ken
dall until just a month ago yesterday,
and she is a sister to E. 8. Kendall late
of tbe "Recorder," and was a student in
the Academy In this city last year.
