Square Miles Near Tllden.
A dovastlng wind and hall slorn :
swept the locality of Tllden , tearing
down trees and windmills and ruining
the corn and oat crop completely soutl :

THE STORM IN HOLT COUNTY.
Loss In Crops is Estimated There ai
It Is said that a destructive hail am
wind storm swept northern Holt conn
ty clean of all kinds of crops and dlt
great damage to buildings and live
stock. A terrific downpour of rain fol
lowed the hail and swept the streams
of all kinds of bridges , which will en
tall great expense upon the countj
and the numerous townships for theii
replacement. The storm started abou
twenty-two miles north and abou
three miles west of O'Neill and swop
eastward along the Eagle and 'Honoj
creeks , covering a territory from tk <
Eagle to within about six miles nortl
of O'Neill , about fourteen miles wide
When directly north the clouds split

along the Eagle and Black Bird creeks

of the largest farmers in the county
The main storm extended nearly te
Disney and was from eight to twelve
miles wide and about twenty-five miles
long. The portion of the cloud tha
swept over O'Neill passed southeas
and it has been impossible to ascer
tain the distance traversed in that dl
rection , as all telephones In that sec
tion are out of order. The wind wai
terrific and completely demolished thi
grandstand on the fair grounds there
but did little damage to other build
ings in the city.
Crops in the country traversed b :
the storm never looked better thai

State and County Authorities Take
Beresford , S. D. , July 25. The fact
that glanders have been discovered
near Beresforel' that it was found
necessary to kill a flue team of driv
ers belonging to James Murphy is
greatly Interesting the farmers In the
locality , and they are taking steps to
have all the horses around here exam
ined with the view of stamping out
the disease. It is generally thought
that the disease was brought here by
a horse taken from a herd of western
horses , which was brought hero by
one Charles Mason , and it is now pro
posed to have all herds , where ono of
the horses taken from the herd has
been running , examined. While ordi

Sioux Falls , S. D. , July 25. A farm
er named Hnvronck , who resides In
Charles Mix county , has reason to be-
leve that his farm Is situated over a
volcano or that a convulsion of some

Without any apparent cause n tract

acres of his farm commenced sliding ,
and before it stopped had slid a dis

These fissures or cracks are from
six inches to ten feet deep. Havron-

Instinct In Plants.
Climbing plants have two opposing
methods of describing spiral growth.
The plants that turn to the right In
the northern hemisphere reverse this
trend in the southern hemisphere , and
therefore , for the sake of consistency ,
It may bo preferable to describe the
two kinds of spiral tendency ns re
spectively "clockwise" and "counter
clockwise , " which latter can be short
ened to "countenvlse. " The honey-
stickle and the hop turn "clockwise , "
while the convolvulus and the scarlet
runner bean twine "countenvlse. " Ex
periments made by growing scarlet run
ner beans in opaque cylinders , to dis
cover whether the deviation of the
twist was Innate or merely from the
direction of the light , disclosed the
fact that the plant possesses an Inclina
tion resembling the instinct of animals ,
of proceeding In u given direction , and

Swedenborg was a great deal In Lon
don , where he was known and admired
and had several good friends , but his
small knowledge of English and the

figure , with its fine features and hazel
eyes , was well known in the neighbor
hood of Coldbath fields , where he lodg

talk to the children , for whom he used
to carry sweetmeats. Hewas always

Darrow told of the eight-hour law
passed by the Colorado legislature in
18U9 and the light against that law by
the owners of the mines and thu
"They tex > k It to the supreme court ,
and , of course , that court declared it
unconstitutional , " he exclaimed. "Of
course , it IB unconstitutional to pass a
law taking away from the Guggen-
helms the right to take twelve hours'
work out of the hide of the workingmen -
men Instead of eight. What are con
stitutions for except to be used for
the rich and destroy laws made for the
poor. Gold is stronger than the pen
stronger than law. What are lawa
for if the rich have to obey them ?
"I am not hero to say to you men
that labor organizations do no wrong.
I know them too well for that. They
have often done wrong ; the y have
often been unjust and frequently cor
rupt , but the labor organization has
elwaya stood for the poor , for the
weak , for humane laws and for human
life and liberty.
"Tho men struck in Colorado for the
eight-hour day and they got it. Are
you men of the Jury going to take It
away from them ? Mr. Hawley asks
you fo oejfroy the Western Federation
of Miners by hanging Its lenders. Are
you going to do It ? Doubtless they
have done some brutal things some
criminal things and _ some that were
not wise pyrt faonio fhaT'wero not Just.

Owners' association , with the Guggen-

unions of tins country , you destroy
liberty when you strike the blow , and
will leave the poor to do the bidding
of the rich. I toll you , men , that so
long that the employers of labor have
the spirit of Rockcfellcrlsm in their
hearts there is going to be trouble ,
Hawley says the Western Federation
of Miners has made trouble. It has ,
and I am glad of it , for when we cease
to cause trouble we become slaves.
