Chicago Inter-Ocean. Count Tolstoi is as frank with his pbysgciana aa he has been with other people. He has been dangerously ill, but a cablegram from St. Petersburg, under date of July 28 says he is improv ing, but his physicians are unable to diagnose his trouble. "You good folks," Count Tolstoi said to his doctors, "know all that medical science teaches, but, unfortunately, that science itself knows nothing at all." A few days ago Count Telstoi said to a friend: The carriage is already at the door and I must go." Then later, after he had slightly improved, he said: "Ob, I am allowed to wait awhile." The chief cause for alarm concerning Count Tolstoi lies in his extreme weak ness. His body is emaciated and his skin is sallow; his eyes alone retain their brilliancy, while his mind is perfectly clear. Reab Admtjul Schlet, calling Secre tary Long's attention to the criticisms gainst himself contained in Maclay's history of the navy, says that in his opin ion the time has come to bring the entire matter under the "clear and calm review of his brothers in arms." It is supposed that a court of inquiry will be organized, over which Admiral Dewey may be called to preside. The Weather. WEDNESDAY, JULY 24.

In the neighbor hood it was the twenty-fourth day with out rain and only twice during that time had any dew fallen. The hottest tem perature during the heated term was 114 degrees. Reports to St Paul from all sections of the states of Minnesota and the Dako tas show that the heat wave continues with, if anything, increased intensity. Many stations report this day as being a record breaker, with maximums ranging from 100 to 108. Bismarck reports a maximum temperature of 106, the high est in many years.

William Spate Suddenly Faces Death by a Ruthina Ewfiae. This community was shocked Monday morning on learning that one of ita oldest citizens had been fatally injured by being struck by an engine attached to a through freight train on the Union Pacific, the accident taking place on L street, about six feet west of the side walk, the body striking the graveled earth, just south of the main-line track, and from appearances of effects upon the left side of the head and left shoul der, death was caused by the hard fall and the dragging. The scalp was torn from the skull, and the clothing from the shoulder, on the left side of the bodjv Our best information is that while walking near the track (be was exceedingly hard of bearing) not being aware of a train near, in making a atop to cross the track he was picked up by the pilot, and for a moment stood upon it, on the north side (the engine was going eastward), and then by a sudden jerk was whirled to the ground on the south side of the engine. The spot is very close to where Mrs. Disohner was fatally injured. The body was taken to the residence, two blocks south on the same street, but the spirit had left ita mortal tene ment Coroner Metz, who arrived at noon from Humphrey, summoned a jury con sisting of Messrs. Held, Gluck, Roen, Asche, Funk and J. Greisen, who after hearing the testimony of Wm. Boraman, Mrs. Charles Ball and daughter, Miss Florence Ball, Peter Greisen, Louis Petsch and L. Merriman gave their ver dict that, between the hours of 8 and 9 o'clock a. m., July 29, William Speioe came to his death accidentally by being struck by a Union Pacific engine. The funeral services are to be held at the residence this morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. Weed officiating. William Speioe was born in Chester county, Pennsylvania, May 18, 1823. He came to Nebraska abont thirty four years ago, and this has virtually been the home of himself and wife ever since. They resided temporarily, a short time, in the Black Hills and in Califor nia. Within the past year they cele brated their golden wedding. A boy and a girl were born to them, but did not survive childhood. The widow sur vives to mourn the loss of a true and faithful companion. Deceased was an elder brother of Judge C. A. Speice, well known to many Journal readers. William Speice was a man who prob ably had no enemies. He attended strictly and conscientiously to his own affairs, and was highly respected by all who knew him. While thoroughly un obtrusive, he was true and faithful, and his hut utterance "Oh God! Lift me up," let us believe, is now fully answered by his presence in the Land of the Leal. A SUPERB HORSE DBPUkT. Flv Hnadnd Harass EsUnlted with i. Great thaws. Ringing Brothers have five hundred magnificent horses, and they will be seen with the big show when it exhibits in Columbus, Saturday Aug. 10. These superb animals represent many years of careful selection by expert horse buyers and breeders, and the expenditure of many thousands of dollars.

Great aa Growing: Citim Tk Ceaamerelal Ceagreas. Ed. Journal: Having recently re turned from a trip to the famous mining camp of Cripple Greek, Cola, where I was in attendance as a delegate to the Trans-Mississippi Commercial Congress that met there on the 16th and adjourn ed on the 20th inst, I thought perhaps the readers of The Journal might be interested in hearing something of this wonderful mining camp and the coun try surrounding it. In journeying towards the west after leaving the great grain fields of Nebras ka, the traveler is ushered into what is known as the "cow and sheep country" which extends almost from North Platte to Denver. This vast territory is dotted all over with large herds of cattle, horses and sheep; there are very few towns of any importance from North Platte to Denver, and the 197 miles from Jules burg to Denver has but one town of about 1.000 people. When one reaches the Colorado capitol he meets with a different country. Arriving there in the morning the writer naturally was anx ious to see the great city of the west, and after breakfast took the electric car over what is known as the "observation line," where the passenger rides 27 miles through all the prominent streets of the city for 25 cents. This is well wor(b ten times the charge and should not be missed by parties visiting Denver. After leaving Denver over the Colo rado Southern for Colorado Springs, the weary traveler ia refreshed by the cool air from the snow-topped mountains piercing the skies, a Titantio sentinel among the Titans, is Pike's Peak, which can be seen 100 miles away, and whose snow-capped summit was anxiously watched for by the early Argonauts whose slogan was "Pike's Peak or Bust" in the daya of '59. Along this road one is awakened with a feeling of awe and veneration at the scenery which he ia drawing closer to at every turn of the wheel, passing tnrougn many thrifty towns nestled olose up to the foot of these mountains, one can see thousands of people from every section of the coun try enjoying the cool mountain air, fishing, hunting, etc .. Upon arriving in Colorado Springs the tourist sees one of the most beautiful little cities in the west with its fine shade trees, parks, wide clean streets, and fine residences. There are no side walks in this city, as the whole city is paved by nature and one can just aa well walk in the center of the street as on the sides. " Colorado Springs is known as the "City of Millionaires1 and is said to be the wealthiest city of its size in the Union. We were told by a friend that it was not fashionable to be in more than ordinary circumstances any more as the millionaires were so thick they were considered too common. On leaving Colorado Springs we took the new railroad known as the short line over the mountains to Cripple Creek, a distance of 45 miles by rail, but only 15 miles by air line. This road over these high mountains ia one of the most won derful pieces of railroad engineering in the country. After leaving Colorado Springs yon start up into the sir at the rate of four feet to the hundred, or bet ter known as a four per cent grade, we rode for two and one half hours and seemed to be np over the top of the city we naa ten, ana m mating ine nrteen miles one goes np something like five thousand feet before he reaches Cripple Creek, and at the highest point you are over 14,000 feet above sea level It is vary cool going over this route and a good warm suit waa not out of place, wnlM the people or rveorasga ware trying every soneme so ansa ineiraiouMS. The grand scenery on this road can only be pictured by seeing it To try to explain its beauties, and the wonderful works of nature would take more time' and space than yon could give aueh a subject.- I will say however, that should any of the ramArm at Tnar nrmr mp an A fViln Irado they cannot afford to miss this most wonderful trip. Upon arriving in Cripple Creek V found a well built city of about ib0OO people, nne pared streets, and toe best lighted city in the west Every one seems to be busy, and there is plenty of money always on hand. I bad the pleas ure of seeing a real gold brick in the window of one of the prominent drug stores. I looked at it a while through the window and I must confess it looked good to me. -1 concluded it would make a-nice thing to bring home and tell Link Lee and H. J. Alexander that I got it t Lout of the Beaver mine at Grand En- csmpmenf o-I ventured in to ask the owner what waa the least he would take 1 and 1st me put it in my grip and take it home, ne gently informed me that it would cost me $7,600 (all cash) to get the brick. I did not bay it. Cripple Creek has ao such a thing as Sunday, every thing is run wide open on that day as well as any day in the week. The people know no Sabbath, nor can they distin guish the tones of a church bell from the sound of a dinner gong. When I reached this 'Golden City" I found the place pecked with people from every state west of the Mississippi, and it was estimated that there were over 70.000 visitors in Cripple Creek during the week of the Commercial Congress. The city was decorated throughout with the national colors, the bands played "There'll be a hot time in Cripple Creek Tonight," and everything was "push and jam." The meeting of the Congress waa called to order at the time set and nearly every state in the northwest waa well represented. The object of this Trans Mississippi Commercial Congress is principally for the building up of the commercial interests of the states west of the Mississippi river, and among the principal questions taken up at this meeting were. Semi-arid regions. Water ways and Harbors. Pacific Cable, Trade .with the Orient, Beet Sugar Industry, Encouragement of Home Industry, Relation of Live stock interests to the Forest Reserves. Good roads and drainage, oil fields, irrigation and many other questions re lating to the interests of the western states. This was the twelfth session of the congress, the first session being held in Galveston; the next session will be held at St Paul and Minneapolis. Minn., in the summer of 1902, and as the object of this congress is to promote the ma terial advancement of the western half of the nation, and as such, it is regarded as a tremendous factor in voicing the sentiments and advocating the welfare of the western portion of our republic. I have no doubt but the meeting at the Minnesota capital will be one of the largest ever held by the organization. Frank T. Walker. licklamd and Vicinity. The drouth broken.

It is based on a knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and chem istry of the human body. Osteopathy cures all curable diseases. The suspensory treatment cures curva tures and all abnormalities of the spine, when all other methods fail. This device is something new, and we would be glad to have those who have spinal troubles call and investigate this new treatment. Consultation and examination free. O. P. Meeks, d. O. Nelxk II.
