first time, though the little village
cave to the nation a preiidrnt, it
was honored with the preence of
the pretident of the I'nited States.
The world today needi something
of the spirit of Gen. Grant, President
Harding declared in hit address.
"I sometimes wonder," the presi
dent said, "if the inagitanintity of
Grant, the dogged, pertinent, unal
terable Grant in warfare the un
conditional surrender Grant would
not be helpful in the world today.
The. great world atniggle, which we
might reasonably designate the civil
war of western civilization and in
which we o creditably and help
fully participated, left peoples and
nationa prostrate, hardly knowing
which way to turn for restoration.
I cannot help but believe that some
thing of the spirit with which Grant
welcomed victory, something of his
eager neis to return to peaceful ways,
would have speeded the restoration
and hastened the return to prosperity
and happiness, without which there
can be no abiding peace."
Mr. II ing paid tribute to Grant

from Natchez. Reports from thos
.towns said the break had been an
ticipated and mo.'.t of the people had
prepared for it. Some did not believe
the flood waters would reach a
greater depth than four or five feet
in the houses, in which case most
of the residents were said to be pre

Throughout Concordia and Cata

of communication was by boat. The

Fort Worth, Texas. April 27.-
Trinity river was well within its
banks this morning, the gauge show
ing a drop of 16 feet over night and
now registering only 17. Street car
service was restored this morning- to
all flooded suburbs. The dead and
missing list is now 49.
Search for the 60 or more reported
dead or missing in Fort Worth, as
a result of the flood and reconstruct
tion work, took the lead in the situa
tion here today. Three persons are
in the list of known dead, their
bodies having been recovered.
They were:
W.-C. . Gentry, 25; Mrs. G. W.
Pettis, 50, and a Mrs, Ferguson.
Reports of 'missing persons and
others seen to drown added to the
list last night.
Belief that the crest had - passed
was expressed by omcia Is early-to
day after a decided drop was noted
last night in both the Trinity rrvef
and in Clear Fork creek.
A guard has been placed on the
levee protecting property in the. Van
Zandt addition. It was feared an
attempt might be made to weaken
the levee to relieve the pressure of
water from up the Clear Fork creek.
Residents of the flooded areas
were not permitted to return to their
homes last night. It was probable
that some residents would attempt
to repair damage to their homes and
begin the work of eradicating evi
dences of the flood today,

Washington, April 27. (Special
Telegram.) Representative Jrfferis
will introduce in the house tomor
row a pill providing tnat seeds
shipped into any slate from outside
shall be subject to the operation of
pure seed laws prevailing within that
state. The legislation would impose
on any dealer violating v its terms
a fine of $500, the same to be recov
ered at the suit of the I'nited States
in any federal court having juris
diction. The Omaha representative
prepared the measure following cor
tespondenre with II. D. Lute, sec
retary of the Nebraska 1 arm Uureau
"The purpo!e of the bill, sayV
Mr. Jcflcrw, "is to insure to the
farmers and producers of Nebraska
and other states seed which wilt
pass the test. It seems only right
that seed houses outside our state
be made to comply with the same
requirements as are the seed com
panies doing business in Nebraska.
We have a seed test law and a state
bureau of inspection, but . exiting
laws do not seem to make it possible
for state authorities to prevent ship
ments of inferior seed from seed
houses in other states, who carry, on
