A party of young folks who wera spend
ing the day 'on 'tha river barely escaped
with their lives. As tha weather had bean
threatening they bacame adventurous and
would have been caught In' the tornado's
path had they remained but a, few minutes
longer on tha river.
"The storm was sudden. "All the'etler
noon Intermittent showers and hall had oc
curred until t o'clock when the cloud
separated and through the rlfla the sun
shone, with unusual vigor. This continued
until. about 3:15. Then the clouds merged
again and towards the east assumed an
litlrjr blackness. Intense quiet prevailed,
which seemed to suggest something of the
Impending d'saster. for the people came
out 6f doors as If expecting some treachery
of the elements. At t o'clock the villagers
of Campbell heard a distant rumbling as
of long continued thunder. ' Louder and
louder It grew until It had become an
amlnous roar. Horses and cows as well as
the men and women were terrlfled, and
many of the animals In their fear broke
through' tile fences and stampeded. High
In. the air the observers at Campbell aaw
the. dreaded funnel-shaped cloud approach
ing with frightful velocity.
With a din ct swoop It ' shot to earth.
Instantly debris was whirled upward,
sucks of Vraw.hay and forage, trees and
fences '.were. Whirled up and carried away
like .so many shavings. Soon it was ap
parent 'that the house of Daniel McCurdy
was doomed. Here was' a social gathering,
la a, few' moments the house was struck
and scattered as an egg would be If struck
by A hammer. The barn was bfown over
against the house and the ruins of the
structures were found in a common heap of
debris. Beneath this mass was found tha
remains of Its victims. Mangled, distorted,
mutilated beyond recognition they were
picked " up and dressed ; for burial. The
earth' was torn up In several places where
the tornado struck and then bounded Into
the air. These spots resembled a strip of
burned prairie with the exception that the
earth was completely skinned.

tion Of the one hundredth anniversary of
the birth of Ralph Waldo Emerson. The
widespread enthusiasm awakened today by
the remembrance of this man makes evi
dent to all the depth of gratitude and af
fection with -which he has been regarded
by many people In many places. I am one
of the tew still living who are enabled to
recall him as a personal frieml:
- The following cablegram was read:
Edward Arnold offers humble tribute,
love and gratitude to Emerson, immortal
friend and godfather.
A poem of commemoration was. read by
' Chancellor MacCracken, In responding to
the toast, "The Fame of Emerson," said
Th fame of Emerson Is the fame of a
pioneer. It remind me of the fame of John
Hancock, also a cltlsen of Massschusetts.
Hancock's Is the fame of a man who was
the first to sign with his big handwriting
tho Declaration of our Independence jn
politics The fame of Emerson, in like
manner. Is the fame of a man who waa the
first to publish in his books of sixty years
ago the declaration of our independence In
lsttera. Indeed, It is three-score and six
yearn since in his sddress on the American
scholar hs said: "Our day of dependence,
our long apprenticeship to the learning of
other lands, draws to a close." The earliest
published poem of Emerson, written when
he was only S8, begins with these two lines,
"Right upward on ths road of fame.
With sounding steps the poet came."
This describes the prorres of Emerson.
But when we seek an explanation of this
progress ws must attribute It In a verv con
siderable demree to the time when tie ap
peared. He is a lMerary father of America.
Colonel 'Watterson said In part. In re
sponse to th toast, "The Ideal in Public
There Is no such thing as the Ideal In pub
lic life, construing public life to refer to
political transactions. Ths Ideal may exist
In art and letters, and sometimes very
young men Imagine that It exists in very
young women. But here we must draw the
lino. As society Is constituted the Ideal haa
no place, not even standing room. In ' the
arena of civics. ' If we would make a place
for It we must begin by realising this. The
painter, like the lover. Is a law unto him
self with his little picture the poet, also
with his little poem his atelier, his uni
verse, his barnyard, his field of battle his
weapons the utensils of his craft he, him
self, his own Providence. It Is not so In the
world of action, where the oondltlons are
directly reversed where the one player con
tenda against many players, seen and un
seenwhere eaoh move Is met by some
counter move where the finest touches are
Often unnoted of mn. or rudely blotted out
by a mysterious hand stretched forth from
the darkness. "I wish I could be as surs
Of anything." said Melbourne, "as .Tom
Macauley la of everything." Melbourne was
a man of affairs, Macauley a .man. of books;
and so throughout tha catalogue, the men
pf action have beeafataltsta). front-Caesar
to Kapolfton and Bismarck, nothing cettala
except the Invisible player behind th
screen. - -

Whiskey, which showed It to be a pure
Whiskey uncontamlnated with foreign mat
ter. The search for fusel oil demonstrated
the remarkable purity of this whiskey, as,
1 otwlthstanding the most delicate teats
known were employed in this investigation,
the mere traces of this poisonous matter
found were such as to be incapable of de
termination. This unsual result speaks
more eloquently than words the care taken
in Its production, while It Is an unfailing
Indication of "age" of the whiskey, which
Is so essential to an article to be used for
The various tests made were the 1 most
rigid and exhaustive of any similar exami
nation ever made In thle laboratory, and
the results obtained were of the most flat
tering character. Indicating that the Duffy
Malt Whiskey Company's product Is an
article of exceptional merit and well de
Serves Its name of "Medicinal Whiskey."

Commission, etc., etc

Mrs. Bedford, when she appeared In tne

to Mrs. Bedford's keeping, under th nam
of Margaret Carnett. Mrs. Bedford regis
tered the child as her own and took It to
Parts, and thence to America.
Counsel for the prosecution added that as
the above facts had been established and
the child could no longer be claimed as
the heiress ot the Bedford estate, they were
not desirous ot severe measures and asked
the magistrate to deal with the case as a
technical offense and not to send It to the
higher courts, where a penalty of several
years' , Imprisonment could have been In
