A good deal of sickness may reas
onably bo expected to occur this
scasou along and near to tho water
courses so unusually flooded by high
waters in the spring. Already it
begins to tell in Omaha in the num
ber of people that are sick, as well
as the number of deaths reported the
last week. Citizens in all localities
visited by the floods should in every
instanco of feeling unwell without
delay apply to their family physician
and have the causes of disease in
stantly removed from the system.
If this is not done immediately it
may become so deep sealed as to
require weeks and mouths to con
trol, and perhaps obtain such a hold
upon the system that the best efforts
of your physician cannot control it.
We admouish all to take prompt
action with the diseases of this year,
in all localities that have been flood
ed by the high waters.
The President on the 14th was
still better and improving. The
doctors all agree that he is getting
better right along, aud that the dan
ger is about passed. He had a bet
tor appetite that day and had taken
more food. Some eflbrls are being
made to locate the place of the lodg
ment of the ball in the President's
body. The investigations of Dr.
Bliss lead him to the conclusion that
the ball must have passed through
the liver or must havo grazed it in
its downward course and lodged in
the interior wall of the abdomen, as
at first supposed, aud it will be easy
when the time comes to roraovo it
from that point without danger.
The report from tho President under
date of July 15th says the President's
condition h better than ever. His
appetite is very good, ne atn with
a relish, and retained everything on
his stomach.
James O'Brien, who had been
working on tho section at Nicholas,
just west of North Platte, and learn
ing that a fellow laborer, William
Moflit, had by industry and economy
saved over two hundred dollars,
which he kept in hia room locked iu
a trunk, O'Brien feigned sickness,
and after the man had gone to work,
he broke open the trunk, and taking
the cash, besides several other val
uable articles, he skipped out. The
sheriff of Dawson county captured
tho thief at Plum Creek, where he
was found riding in a box car. Ho
was brought back to North Platte
aud immediately committed to await
the action of the grand jury.
The attending physicians upon the
President on the 12th inst., say they
have not concealed the fact that the
presidcut is a very sick man, and
that he is not out of danger,.but they
do insist that all of his symptoms
are favorable, and that there is no
indication of unfavorable symptoms
to come. They state .that on the
11th inst., the president passed tho
most comfortable day since the
July 12 12-40. The president is
resting quietly, his condition is
somewhat improved. Pulse 182.
July 132 a. m. The president
rests well. His condition continues
the same as at last report.
The town of New Ulra, situated
on the Minnesota river, some sixty
five miles from St. Paul, and con
taining about 3,500 people, was
struck by a wonderful cyclone on
the afternoon of the 15th. The track
of the cyclone is described by the
Pioneer Press as a scene of awful
grandeur during the storm, and an
appalling wreck after it, while the
troubled air was full of debris, and
wildly lit up by blazing balls of
electricity. A large number of the
citizens were killed and others
wounded and a terrible destruction
of houses and other property.
Cranky Bill, a sort of a crazy
dare-devil, fires at three men on
Dodge street, Omaha, last week, and
drives two more out of a saloon with
his pointed revolver. He was finally
captured by policeman Gorman and
placed in the lock-up. The Omaha
Bejniblican thinks he is crazy, and a
dangerous luuatic at that, and eho'd
be sent to a lunatic asylum.
The Kansas City Journal, from
reliable sources estimates the' wheat
and corn crops of Kansas as fol
lows: The yield of wheat will ag
gregate over 20,000,000 bushels, and
the grade will be excellent. The
acreage of corn planted has beou
greater than usual, and it is safe to
estimate the product of this season
at 125,000,000 bushels. The same
Journal, from a careful examination
of the reports,says Nebraska's wheat
crop will reach 1C,000,000 bushels
this year, and her corn to near 90,
000,000 bushels.
The recent rain storm in Iowa
did immense damage in some local
ities. By tho overflow of tho Skuuk
and Dcs Moines rivers, the damage
on low lands of Mahaska is very
serious, hundreds of acres being
submerged. Thousands of dollars
worth of stock was lost, whole herds
numbering over a hundred each
being drowned. Two hundred and
fifty thousand dollars will not cover
the damage in Mahaska county.
On the afternoon of tho 10lh a fire
broke out in DaviB's drug Btore in
Hastings, said to bo the result of tho
explosion of a case of kerosene, and
burned down the whole of the post
office block on the north side of
second street with the exception of
a block on the southeast corner, aud
the livery stable ou tho northwest
corner. Tho loss on buildings will
foot up $40,000, and perhaps half as
much damage on goods.
Thos. K. Pugh, who was supposed
to have been killed by the Apaches,
turns out to be a prisoner in their
bauds. In searching for him a small
note was found in the dust, written
by him, which said, "I am a prisoner.
Apaches have got me. Hurry after
me." The authorities of Mexico
and tho United States have sent
troops after the Indians, and every
effort will be made to save Pugh if
he is still alive.
The Democratic convention of
Ohio held at Columbus on the 13th
inst., placed in nomination the fol
lowing state ticket: For governor,
John W. Bookwalter; lieutenant
governor, E. M. Johnson ; supreme
judge, E. F. Brigham ; state treasur
er, A. F. Winslow; attorney general,
F. C. Dougherty. The convention
passed resolutions deeply deploring
the recent attack upon the life of
the President.
Wonderful feats were performed
by the telegraph on the day of the
President's assassination ; tho West
ern Union company sent 275,000
words of press matter and 6,000
words of private dispatches for its
day 8 work. The American Union
company ran all day, and four news
papers received 30,000 words. All
the wires in Washington that day
sent out about 400,000 words.
Great damage resulted to prop
erty in Marshalltown, Iowa, from
the recent unprecedented rain storm.
The water from Linn Creek rose to
such a height as to float about forty
houses. Some thirteen manufactur
ing establishments wero moro or
less wrecked. In the city the dam
age amounts to $200,000, while out
side, the loss in crops and farm
implements is very largo.
