The Summer City nt Crete.
Cnr.TK , Neb. , Juno 23. [ Special to Tun
DEB. ] The assembly groundsnro now In
readiness for the multitude of people who
purpose attending the seventh session of the
Nebraska Chautauqua , which convenes the
tlay after to-morrow , The vanguard of this
multitude has already an Ived nnd found com
fortable quarters In the Summer City. A
casual glnnco over the ample grounds shows
I that no pnlns have been spared to make them
as nearly ns possible nil that could bo rcuson-
tibly desired. All the buildings and additions
have been completed , the campus mown , the
prove cleared of surplus growth , nnd the
Icnts pitched. AVhat great Improvements have
been made In the appearance mm appoint
ments of the assembly grounds nro evident to
the observer us soon as ho enters the
gates. A material point In this regard Is the
pregcnco of so ninny now and handsome
buildings. The enlargement of the pavilion
and the dining hall add much to the appear
ance and convenience of these structures.
The Presbyterian headquarters nro especially
unique nnd attractive ; the Y. M. C. A. build
ing also presents a pleasing appearance nnd
the G. A. II. building will bo no less pleasant
to the eye when it Is provided with the broad
Ooublu verandas which the builders propose
adding to It cro another year.
The 500 tents now distributed over the
grounds hero In long , prim rows , ana there
la picturesque confusion--make n very pretty
picture and constitute n veritable city of
Icnts. It Is the well ordered encampment of
n great army , nn nrniy not of warriors , but of
seekers after physical , mental and spiritual
pleasure and prollt. All that Is needed to
perfect this popular nnd rapidly-growing
nummer city on the banks of tlio big blue , Is
the busy life that will soon surge through Its
nhndy streets , nnd illl its pleasant cottages
nnd multitudinous canvas residences.
Besides-tho 510 tentstho grounds now con-
tnui about thirty substantial frumebuildings.
Of thcso twelve are private cottages , seven
nro headquarters buildings , nnd the rest are
lialls. ofilccs , stores , luncheon rooms , etc.
These frame bulldlngs.ncnrly all of which are
Voth largo nnd attractive , give an nir of
thrift and permnnauco to the grounds which
they would not otherwise possess.
Ttirco car loads of tent furniture have ar
rived , nnd tent-dwellers can purchase it on
the grounds nt co&t price , or rent it nt roa-
nonublo rates. Those who have this matter
In charge have a largo aad well selected
Block of tent furniture , and will offer it nt
much better terms than could be obtained
last year. It is the object of the assembly
liot to make money on thcso articles sold or
rented to tout-dwellers , but simply to obtain
the cost price.
Several dozen row boats have been pro
vided , nnd are now swinging idly at their
moorings near the hall In the grove , await
ing the coming of the lloatlng population that
every year can bo found on the river at all
Boris of hours. The little steamer , the
jOollo of the Blue , has been newly cleaned
nnd painted , and presents a bravo nppoar-
nnce. It will do Us part to increase the en
joyment of voyagers , and its familiar whistle ,
Which has boon Jocosely likened to nn Alpine
tiorn , will rend tlio cars of nervous mortals
innd awaken the echoes that lie slumbering
nlong the willowy river banks nnd among the
Wooded hills.
It Is n matter of congratulation that the
assembly workers who coinu nero from
abroad will have comfortable apartments in
Uunning hall , that their meals will bo served
in the largo dining room oi the same buildIng -
Ing nnd tnat they will bo free from tlio in
conveniences und annoyances of previous
'years. The matter of providing suitable
ticcommodations for distinguished guests and
Workers has heretofore been unavoidably
toeglected , but now that the small out-of-the-
way frame building which has hitherto
nerved ns their lodging place , and which
1'rof. Frank Beard derisively dubbed
'Saint's Hest , " has given place to the hand-
EOino nail named in honor of the assembly's
popular nnd cflicicnt superintendent-of in-
Btructlou , there can bo no turtherlack in this
Quito n number of people have arrived and
nre getting comfortably installed in thuir
bsscmbly quarters. Among to-day's arrivals
nre Messrs. Culvert , AVelch , Lcavitt and
Gregory and their families , of Lincoln. Hey.
has rented Mr. '
Gregory Hardcnborg's cot
tage , nnd Mr. Lcnvitt nnd wife will share
cither the Welch rr Culvert cottage. These
four families will employ an experienced
cook , u largo . tent will serve ns their
Ititchon and they will form a jolly little
community modeled after the Shaker plan of
having everything in common.
A telegram Just received from Judge
Thomas M. Cooley , president of the inter

"Expect to leave Ann Arbor Friday and

. So there is no doubt loft that Judge Cooley

Fearful Itcturns From the Mexican
TOWIIH Devastated By Floods.
Cm-OF MEXICO , Juno .20. Telegraphic
communication , which had boon interrupted
for several days by the flood , has boon re
stored and the particulars of the terrible dis
aster on the Mexican Central railway , par
ticularly nt Leon and Silao , nro obtained.
During the past ton days the table lands bo-
, wccn here and Zacatocas have boon visited
jy unprecedented ruins , which have flooded
nil the stroatns. M.iny cities nnd towns
lave been inundated and Leon and Silao
liavo been partially destroyed. The first
intimation in this city of the ilood was tele
graphed from Silao , dated the ISth , inst. It
said that rains have Hooded the low lands
and the town was being Hooded. About IUO
udobo houses have been destroyed. The
station buildings arc occupied by homeless
people , who are unable to obtain anything to
eat except fruit floating on the w.Uer. The
rain has been general , nnd while the country
around Silao is Hooded , several dykes have
given way.
The Hoods have been moro destructive in
Leon than in Silao. Monday night brought
the city ono of the u.ost ternblo
scones ever witnessed in this country.
The people believed themselves secure
from the Hood , and went to bed in the unHeeded -
Hooded parts of the town without fear. Tlio
steady downfall of rain caused the river to
overllow the greater part of Leon. Houses
tumbled in rapidly and loss of lifo com
menced. As the buildings fell tbo unfortu
nate sleeners were either crushed to death
or drowned. A night of terror followed.
Men , women and children fled to the strcots
in their night clothes , some to find shelter in
higher ground , and others to bo swept away
by the Hood.
Wednesday afternoon the rain ceased fall
ing and the waters commpiipoa to recede.
People recovered from their fright , though
the water was still covering a portion of the
city. Ono hundred and cloven bodies have
been recovered without moving any of the
ruins of IIOUSPS. where are supposed to bo
hundreds of bodies buried. The number of
destroyed houses is estimated at 2,000 and
the loss at $2ODOOJO. Many other towns
have boon badly damaged , but the loss of
lifo is only reported from Silao and Leon.
The Mexican Central has suffered very
The state of Guananjunto nnd the federal
government nro doing much to succor the
victims of the Hood. Furthermore , sub
scriptions of money , food nnd clothes nro being -
ing sent from here. The last reports from
Leon nro heartrending. The whole popula
tion is busily working Into the ruins of the
fallen houses. Nearly everybody has lost re
lations or friends.
The last statement received places the
number of houses destroyed in Li-on at 221 ,
nnd the homeless famines nt moro than n
thousand. Moro than two hundred and tlfty
bodies have been recovered from the ruins ,
and there is no probability that the cutiro
number of dead will fall short of TOO.
Ei. P.v-o , Texas , Juno 20. Information is
received hero from thn Hooded districts in
Mexico saying that 1..100 lives were lost by
the inundation and that u thousand bodies
bnvo been recovered. Leon is a city of
100,000 inhabitants , and a largo part of it is in
ruins , It is stated that 100 miles of the Mexi
can Central road is impassible , nnd that jt
will talco ten days before the mails can get
through and twenty days before freight can
bo moved.
