The damage In Illinois doesn't seem
to have been very severe yet. Some In

Michigan prnetlrally Is under snow,
nearly every dispatch reclvcd reporting
a more or less severe fall. Crops and
fruit were ronsldernbly damned In
many places. At Traverse Cllv rail

From Iowa comes a story of dnmiiKe

total destruction. Potatoes and (trapes
were destroyed In Greene, Calhoun,

other places send slmllnr reports.
In Ohio, throuichout the central por

Corn, fruit and warden vcitctntlnn sus

but the damage In other parts ot tho

Though the storm on the lake wni
particularly severe few disasters are re

Ts1W Evidence of Armenian Massa
Conitnntlnople, May 16. The commis
sion which has been Investigating the
atrocities In Armenia traversed the dev
astated villages and arrived nt Jelly
goozan, where 120 houses were found to
have been burned.
The people wre sheltered In miser
able huts nnd ample proof was found of
the truth of the stories told regarding
the massacre of Aimenlans, nnd the
fact that their bodlea wero thrown In
large numbers Into a pit, where the
Turks endeavored to conceal their crime
by pouring bnrrels of pett oleum upon
the bodies and setting lire to the oil.
The Unities, however, failed to con
Bumo the mass and a stream was
dammed and dlveited from Its course
In order to wnsh away the half-burned
bodies. Uut even this failed to obliter
ate the terrible evidence against the
Turks, and the local authorities were
compelled to remove the remains piece
meal. The villagers had removed tho
bulk of the bodies and Interred them In
consecrated ground before the arrival
of the commission at Jellygonzan. The
commission has returned to Moosh.

.a Panic u noard.
Detroit, Mich,, May 15. An accident
occurred at 5:20 o'clock last evening on
the new river steamer Unique on Lakt
Ht. Clair which caused the death of twe
men and possibly a third may die ol
his Injuries: The dead;
013011(113 UODINSON, engineer,
ANTHONY CASE, coal pnsser.
John Plant, firemen, badly scalded.
At 4 o'clock the Unique left Detroit
bound for Port Huron, after a down
trip which was the quickest over made
between Detroit and Port Huron by
boat. When about nine miles from Ilellc
Isle a crash was heard in the bollet
room. It was followed by clouds ot
steam and soot driven through the
hatches at terrific force. At the snme
time the dock hands saw George Itobln
on of this city, engineer of the bont,
wno was sitting on the port rail, thrown
overboard. Life preservers were at once
thrown to him, but as the boat was go
Ing at full speed they did not come
within his reach. A boat wai at once
lowered and a thorough search was
made for him, but he had disappeared.
As soon as the condition of nffalrs be
low would warrant It the officers of tho
boat went below and found a crnck
about an Inch and a half in one of tho
boiler flues. This caused the explosion.
On the floor of the boiler room was
Anthony Cnse, a coal passer, who had
been killed outright. Near him was
John Plant, a fireman, who was taken
out from the fire hold frightfully
About forty passengers were on the
boat and as soon ns the accident oc
curred a rush was made for tho life pre
servers, but the panic ended as soon
as all on board became assured that
nothing serious had happened to tho
boat Itself and order was quickly re
stored. The Unique lay on Lake St.
Clair from the time of the accident un
til 2 o'clock In the morning, when tho
wrecking tug Wales took her In tow
and reached tho dock nt Detroit at 3

Portland, Me., May 15. This city Is
cxcltpd over the discovery of evidence
which leads the police and many citi
zens to believe thnt some crank planned
to blow up the residence of Thomas 11.
Iteed and Mayor Henry Baxter.
While patrollng Deerlng street last
night near the Reed and Baxter houses
Policeman McCormack found on the
Bldewnlk an envelope containing thiee
vials filled with a dark yellow fluid and
wrapped In cotton-batting. Pinned in
side the envelope was a slip of paper
upon which was some wilting In an un
known tongue, resembling a combina

was nothing In English except "M.
Baxter, Fev. 123, A. O. U. I 22, 23, M.
Reed, Morrlse. L. Morsrow." It was
nt first thought that the mysterious
package hnd been placed on the walk
by some Joker, but when a druggist
pronounced the fluid In the vials to bo
nitroglycerin the police began to look
at the matter seriously. The entire po
lice force hns begun nn Investigation.

went Into congress on the silver Issue,
talked there on silver and was licked In

Children Cry for
Tho failure or crops in Nebraska tho

means lo prevent serious droughts, or
nt least, to enable tho dinners of the

taken a strong hold upon the people of
the western portion of the stale, and
many ditches are being coiihtructcd.
Irrigation from deep wells is also bo

of these ways of watering the soil is
considerable, and only a portion of tho

basins. Nebraska is a great side hill
country, sloping from the western part
ot tho state, down to tho Missouri river
on the cast. Streams all run rapidly,
draws or ravines in times of hcavcy
rains carry largo volumes of water.
These draws are so formed that a stor
nito basin or pond is easily made, by
simply throwing a dam across them and
by tramping tho Uottoms (using cattle
or horses for this purpose). The Cost
is almost nothing nnd tho maintaining
of them costs but a little labor each
year. A large percentage of tho farms
