Slast Be Da Over Aarala. The heavy rainstorm Monday night sent Indian creek out of Ita banks about mid rlteht, with the usual result that Broadway from Tenth street to the Illinois Central tracks Is covered with a deposit of slimy mud several Inches deep. The creek first left its banks as usual at the bridges of the Northwestern railroad, and for a while the water was two feet deep between curb and -curb In the vicinity of the railroad tracks. Despite the water and mud the street railway company succeeded in main taining a good car service between this city and Omaha, although for about halt an hour Uie cars were tied up on either side of the railroad tracks. The flood was not of long duration and after about an hour the water In the creek subsided. At one timed uring the height of the flood the water was within an inch or so of going over the North Eighth street Bridge." West ht eighth street the creek overflowed on the south side wherever the banks were low. but the damage reported Is not nearly as great as on the previous overflow. The heavy rain and hail was accompanied by a severs electrical storm which, beyond putting the electric light wires out of coin mission for the time being, did no serious damage. A small motor standing at the corner of Pearl street and Broadway was burned out by the lightning and presented quite a pyrotechnics.! display. When the first bolt struck the car It appeared to be entirely enveloped In flames and the con fluctnr and motorman made a precipitate retreat. They nad barely reached a shel tering doorway when the car was struck a second time and Its wiring completely burned out.. , Ort South Main street there was the usual torrent of water and the lower end of the Itreet -was covered yesterday with mud cashed down from the hill streets, a num ber of which were badly damaged.

RAIN FALLS IN TORRENTS Terrlae Dowapoar, Aeeompanled by Electrical Display, Damaging; New Cenerete Work. One of the heaviest rains of the season fsll throughout this section Monday night, the precipitation at Omaha being 1 11 Inches. The storm was accompanied by some hall. The storm began about 10 :16 Monday night with a startling display of lightning and thunder. It was most severe between ths Missouri and Mississippi rivers, there being a rainfall of 1 inches at Davenport la., and 1 60 inches at Des Moines. There was very little rain In the central and western parts of Nebraska, the storm confining Itself to the Missouri and Mississippi val leys through eastern Nebraska and over much of Iowa. Snow Is reported at Denver Tuesday morning and a freeslng temperature at Cheyenne. Ths boiler and engine room of the Crelgh ton college of Law was flooded with three feet of water. Hence there was no heat In the building Tuesday, as no arrangement could be made with the city engineer to pump out the water until late In the after noon. It is not yet definitely known how the water came Into the boiler room, but It Is thought to have resulted from some con duits that were being placed for electric lighting purposes. The causes cannot be accurately located until the water Is pumped out Ths damage by the heavy rains Monday night Included the spoiling of a lot of new concrete work just put in by the Barber Asphalt company on Twentieth street north of Dodge. Superintendent McLaughlin es timates the damage at from $300 to $1,000. Other paving firms had material and tools profession, we should soon hear the de mand formulated for a league of oeace among the nations. rive nations co-onerated In auelllner the recent Chinese disorders and rescuing their representatives in Pekin. It is Derfect V clear that these five nations could banish war. Suppose even three of them formed a league of peace Inviting ell other nations to Join and agreed that since war in any part of the civilised world affects all na- lona, and often seriously, that no nation hall go to war. but shall refer International disputes to The Hague conference or other arbitral body for peaceful settlement, the league agreeing to declare nonlntercourse with any nation refusing comnllnnce. Im agine a nation cut off tola from the world. ine league also might reserve to Itself the right, where nonlntercourse Is likely to fail or has failed to prevent war. to use tne necessary lorce tn maintain neann. each member of the league agreeing to pro- viub ine neeaea forces, or money in Iteu threof, in proportion to Its population or wealth. Hope of Small Nations. The emperor of Russia called The Tin mi conference, which gave us an International trinunai. were King Edward or the em peror of Germany or the president of France, acting for their governments, to Invite the nations to send their representa tives to consider tne wisdom of forming such a league, the invitation would no doubt be responded to and probably prove UCl'tlSBl Ul. The number that would siadlv loin sneh a league would be great, for the small na tions would welcome the opportunity. The relations between Britain. KVsnre and the United States today are so close. tneir aims so similar, the territories and fields of operation so clearly deflnxd and so different, that these powers might prop erly unite In inviting other nations to con sider the question of such a league aa has neen SKetcnea. it is a subject well worthy the attention of their rulers, for of all the modes of hastening the end of war this appears the easiest and the best. We have no reason to doubt that arbitration In Its present optional form will continue Its rapid progress and that it In Itself con tains the elementa required Anally to lead us to peace, for it conquers wherever it is tried, but It Is none the less gratifying to know that there is In reserve the drastlo mode of enforcement It needed which would promptly banish war. Mr. Carnegie's address was devoted en tirely to the desirability, necessity and even the possibility of putting an end to war. He said In part: Much has man accomplished In this un- ward march from savagery, but the in delible mark of war still remains to stain the earth and discredit our claim to clvll izat'on. One deplorable exception exists to the march of Improvement. A new stain has recently crept Into the rules of war as foul as any that war has been forced by publlo sentiment to discard. Today It Is held that a formal declaration of war is not Indispensable and that war can exist without It. Here is the only step back ward tn be met with In ths stead v progress of modifying the rules of war. It Is to be hoped that the coming conference will stamp this treachery as contrary to the rules of war and thus return to the ancient and more chivalrous idea of attack only after notice. Dishonorable "Honor." The speaker here referred to The Hague tribunal and pointed to some of the re sults already attained by it, saying that the success of President Roosevelt In se curing peace between, Japan and Russia was made possible by The Hague treaty. He continued: Honor or vital Interests have hitherto been excepted from submission by arbitra tion treaties. We exclaim: "Oh, liberty, what crimes are committed In thy name!" but these are trifling compared with those committed in the name of "honor," the most dishonored word In our language. All suffered where unpaved. Those that were paved had thick layers of mud and debris deposited at the foot. On Fourteenth street near Izard about a block of atone paving was undermined and put In bad and almost Impassable shape. Th yards of the Cady Lumber company were flooded, but no considerable damage done. The criminal court room was agnln de luged with water In one spot by reason of the hard rain of Monday night. This leak has existed so long and has become so chronic that Judge Day Is fervently hoping the committee on court house and jail will be able to ret early action under the reso lution authorising repairs to the court house roof. A new carpet is to be laid in the criminal court room this week, but the Judge Is inclined to postpone the laying of the needed floor covering until the leak In the celling is stopped.

On the Lincoln division the plowing and seeding la Dractlcallv com pieted. The acreage of winter wheat is about the same or a little more than last year. Wheat that la out of the ground is looking exceedingly well. On the Wymore division: The crop la ruuy matured and husking will begin soon The crop is large and quality most excel lent. On the Wymore division the plowing and seeding also Is completed and the greater part of the winter wheat Is out of the ground and looking well. Acreage ia prob ably about the same aa last year. On the Lincoln division: No husking of corn to sneak of has yet been done. Esti mates of yield are running from thirty-rive to seventy-five bushels per acre. On the MeCook division the plowing and seeding Is completed, with an acreage per haps a little less than for the fall of lIsH. Winter grain Is growing and Is every where In excellent condition. Corn on the McConk division is fully ma tured and some husking done, although not very much. There seems to be no doubt that between Oxford and McConk espe cially, there is a better crop of corn on the ground today than has ever been rained In that territory. It is estimated that ths rleld will average where corn Is raiaed un his division forty-flve bushels per acre. It Is rather early to make such an esti mate, and this may not be entirely reliable. Hay has been practically all put up on all divisions and there Is a most abundant supply. Pastures are still green and yield ing feed. LOCAL BREVITIES.

A second trial by a Jury brought from court of the United States Judges today be tween states embracing an area larger than Europe. It will be no novelty, but merely an extension of sn agency already proved upon smaller scale. Notwithstanding all the cheering signs of the growth of arbitration, we should delude ourselves If we assumed that war Is Imme diately to Increase, for It Is scarcely to be hoped that the future has not to witness more than one great holocaust of men to be offered up before the reign of peace blesses the earth.

A mother's worries arn rnsnv. Phs sometimes forgeta her own boJUv die comforts because of bar overpowering lova for the child. 6 ha becomes broke rj down, sleepleM, nervous, in table and fnalt tired from morning until night. Many mothers of emparlance can tell you lhat at such a time they have been re lieved, benefited and etrenirthpned and put into proper health by taking a pre scrlption which their mothers had told them was the best woman's tonic and nervine to be taken at such times. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Preeorlptiott has en oyed an enviable reputation for over a third of a century. In all that time it haa sold more largely in the United States than any other tonio for woman's oeeda, aud to-dav Ita sales are greater than ever. Dr. 'Pierce made up this prescription from native medicinal root without the use of a particle of alcohol and for the single purpois of curing .'those diseases peculiar to women and 'when there is lark of womanly strength to bear the hardens of maternal duty. How few women come to this I critical time with adequate strength. The reason why so many women sink under the strain of motherhood la be- . cause they are unprepared. Ia pre paration then required for mother- . hood? asks the young woman. And every experienced mother answers "Yes." "I unhesitatingly advise , pedant mothers to use Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. J. ' W. Q. Stephens, of Mils, Va. The rea son for this advice is that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the best pre paratirs for the maternal function. Ho matter how healthy and strong a woman may be, she cannot use "Favorite Pre scription " as a preparative for ma ternity without gain of health and comfort. But it is the women who are not strong who best appreciate the great benefits reoeived from the use of " Fa vorite Prescription." For one thing it use makes the baby's advent practically Sainless. It has in many cases reduced ays of suffering to a brief few hours. It nas changed the period of anxiety and struggle Into a time of ease and comfort. I A DUTY WOMEN OWI THEMSELVES. "Good actions speak louder than words," so, too does the testimony of many thousands of women daring a third of a century speak louder than ' mere claims not backed by any such record of cures. Miss Emma Petty, 1128 8. Olive Street, Indianapolis, Ind.,Paet Vice-Presidrnt, Daughters of Pocahontas, Minneola Council, also Organist, South Baptist Church, Indianapolis, writes: "For sev eral years I suffered with leucorrhrea, which was a serious drain on my vitality. sapping my strength and causing severe heaaaones, Deanng-aown pains ana a general worn-out feeling, nntil I really had no desire to live. I had many medicines recommended to me and tried many, bat did not get permanent relief until I took Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scriDtion. Inr two months I was much bettor and stronger, and in four months I was well. Have bad no more disacree able discharge, no more pain; so I have every reason to praise 'Favorite Pre scription.' 1 consider it without aa eq'ial for ills of women."

"In llelonias we bars a medicament which more fully, answers ths above purposes than any other druf tritk. which J am acquainted.
