Ft Smith, Ark., Jan. 12 Special: A terrible cyclone parsed through this city at 11 o'clock last night cutting a wide atrip through the business and residence portions, destroying a large number of coetly buildings and homes and causing great damage- At least 10 people were killed by being burled beneath the ruins of buildings and by flying mlsalels striking tbem. To add terror to the fearful calamity, flree broke out In the ruins of buildings In several places and many persons were cremated. The list of Injured rune up Into the hundreds. It Is a most dreadful situation and the awful see nee of deeolatlnr aad suffering are Indescribable. Fortunately a heavy rain fell shortly after the cyclone bad passed over which aided (he firemen In extinguishing the flree. Nearly ail telegraph and telephone lines In and about the city were wreck ed and communication la severely affected, and all klada of traffic has been Interrupted. Several other towns near by euffered severely from the cyclone aad a number of persons were killed. There are do particular! at hand, however. at Pioneers Annual Banquet Ladles and Ueuuuuien.

Now what la there about in humble, honeat, Clod-f.rlu Mir''ti - mnn like myself, that can remind thoae gentlemen of the committee of "l'l-ratea," la something that I do not understand. i'traiea are aea folks, while I live (ar Inland and kno-v uothlng of the sea, or IU people, ami 1 bad almost said that thu man who designed the toast that connected ameltoia with pirates ought to be pul on the grid-Iron and touMlcd" a while hlmeelf. I'lratea, aa I have aald, are aea-people, and 1 have tried lo lb I n what there la about a smelter that could huve reminded your ommltlev of the mean. It la true that wu aomutlmea lake a I'lil i "moinUire ' but never enough lo remind anyone ol oceans" bui this can hardly be the iciukiii, ao ll li aa occurred to uie mat It la something el Me. In the curly seiileuient of our coun try, before the dawn of cheap railroad traiiMportatlon and big llouring mills, every neighborhood Had lie local mill. These mlllera occupied the same rela tion to the fanner that the local smelt- r iIim h to the mlur. There were many pul ii u of similarity. For Inatunce, the miller like the good smelter man aeidom atarvml tc death; none of them died In the poor-house if a fanner had his win at ground at one mill, he waa always sorry he had not gone to the other the millers all took too much moUture I mtvn toll. When I was a I oy In the West Vir ginia nioiuitalns- like Henry Clay 1 lined lo go lo the uilll with wheat. Just an the miner goer, to the nine Iter with ma ore. The Moui.eea corporations hau not th.-u built a ii ti iow guuge railroad to our door, so 1 luul to go to mill 'flitter back," Ve put a couple ol half -filled luigx of wheat across a "hickory saddle." and perched on top of that; down the muddy lanea like Tarn O'Hhanter. we "Bkvlpl: on thro' J ub and mire," and I have often thought that I fell a good deal like the honest miner who brings hia ore to the .smelter. Nobody down there hail any motley In ttioeo days they hnveu't got .tny now, for that matter ao the miller paid lilniMclf by t king out hla toll Now there never was a boy who went to mill but what lie waa Juat like the miner nVud on o the fact that the miller hud to lie . ate hod, or he would take too much ni Isture I mean toll, and i ulwuy wat lied the miller. Just iim the miner wati .u me now when I take a moisture sample. Of course, no mlil-r ever went l i Heaven, and I re-mcuitier u story ti Id of an old miller named llanns. It shows not only how mlllera regarded c.ich other, but also how smelter nieii ('-el. old 'llanns fell iU k, was out of hi. i mind, and thougnt it wna the day of .idgmetit. In hia delirium, he waa boili the Judge and the arcumnl. The neigiiborlng millers, one by one, came up .i fore him; hla near-i'hi rival, the mllici' over on Omaha ('peck, wns before 111 ill for Judgment. "Kdwiu Nunh, vat aa you In the odder world?" "I vaa a miller, lord." "Kd-win Nash, did yoi. over take too much toll?" "Yes. U 1, when the water ms low, and the incs vaa dull, I d'd dike too much to'l." "I thought ao too off mlt him lo VU" wai Mnnni JinlKtiieiit And i on with the miller from Kanxaa t'ltj CitH'k. ami the one from Aurora ('re k - he sent them nil to hell. Finally! snus own turn came, and he put the kh j. questions to him-elf; "Haiitin. vi.', vaa you In the odder world?" I vas a miller. lord." "I 'Id YOI' ever U k too much toll ?" "YiH. ltrd, veil tlir water vaa low, and the stones vus 'i!l, I did sometime take too much to'l." Kanna hesitated. He did not like to t-end himself to hell. He drew a long b rth and said' "Vel llanns. You can g to Heaven, but It vas a d --d tljjit sqijeexe." Of course, all irod pyrltle smelter men will go to Id ,i. en we have had o much trouble he e with sulphur and refractory ores, that nothing short ol the free-milling oree of the golden streets of the new Jerusalem will even things up. This v'ew refers to smelter men only, and ni to miners, like my good friend Harrii l .anklln, hut he Is going to build a Itlc smelter, and pome over among ;b good peo'e. am sure of this I im a dream I bad about him and otl s. I had a vision, iind I thought I saw eth Hullork stroll ing up the heavenly talra I saw him knock rt the gate o d 8t. Peter can-tloiMly opened It ml said: "Who's there?" "Si th Hi ' i k ."

No one, to have seen "Braving the World" on Monday nlgt would have thought It possible for the same company to !v such an able and artistic rendition ol a drama of the serious nature of "Under Two Flags, but such was the case. It is so seldom that companies coming here carry out the promisee whlc i they make to the pttbUc, that the Josscy Marvin company deaervee and probob ly will receive commendation and net ronage for the earnest and unit! ef forte to please the theatre goer of our city. Their llluitieted song, "The Cu ban Captive," made a terrific hit It Is a novelty well worth seeing.

TO BEAUT1 FTL WOMEN. Here It a chant e for the lovely women of the Black Hills to distinguish themselves. The managers o( the Trans-MlsslosI ppl and Internet! inal exposition will soon Issue a souvenir medal la gold silver, bronie, etc. which serve the double purpose of advertising and com memoratlng the great event. After careful and painstaking research on the subject of appropriate designs was decided by the depcrtment of ways and meana, to whl h the matter wu re ferred, to issue a 1 tedal bearing; on the reverse side a profile view of a woman's head In ba. -relief above which will be Inscribed (be word 'souvenir,' and below 'Omaha. 1891.' The obverse side will bear la bas-relief a spirited design of a mounted Indian spearing a buffalo. Above ttia will be Inscribed the word, 'Transra islsslppl,' and below the date. 'S89S.' These designs, It Is thought, fitiy repti tent the progress of clvtlltatloo In the tranamlsauwlppl region during the pct flfty years. The drawing of t le design on the obverse aide will be 'eft to a competent artist, but In ordet to secure a beautiful and at the san. time an appropriate and character!-. tic type of face for the reverse aide, It iiaa been determined to resort to compose photography. To thle end the vice president for each of the transmlsslSKippI states Is asked to aid the ways an t means department In securing photo; raphe of the two most beautiful wo: tea In hie state or territory. The man.ier of selecting the photographs is leu to the respective vice presidents. Rs h photograph munt be of cabinet else end must present a profile view of the iiead and shoulders.

The Uot enor proposes to utilise) l.ooo feet of the space In displaying the agricultural products and give the rrmalndr to the mining exhibit of the I'.lark Hills, Last evening's Independent said: "The sentiment in the Hills Is thst neither 600 feet nor three times that mm h will be adequate for our mining exhibit, and rather than be limited to that amount It would be better to stay at home." Those are our sentiments exactly. Now let the governor exhibit hie pumpkin show from ths esstern part of the stste and keep his hand off ths Black Hills. We are fully abU to take rare of ourselves; If we rat make a creditable exhibit of :he varied and wealthy resources of ihls section, we will heartily fsvor doing so, but we certainly oppose being mixed up with such an outfit as Oev. Lee proposes to take down to Omaha as a representative exhibit of our resourres. As the champion of the Interests r.f the Bls-k Hills and the representative of our p- pie we respectively decline the wlie governor's gracious tender of too feet of space. Thomas A.

The lot In question proved refractory, the pigs resisting all efforts of men with heavy sledges to break them. The fa;t was submitted to chemists and the theory formed that there was aome hitherto unknown substan-s In the Iron used, and thla Is believed to be a new metal. R. H.

Where waa Pomp? A faahlon Journal aays: "The old-fashioned bustle Is coming forward again." That's no way for a bustle to behave.

Tyr- anny, cruelty and truachery art tworn onemlet to truth tilling newspaper men. When a achool boy gtu mad at ft boy ha can't lick, he gtU tvta by yelling really hopping mad at tht United "nigger." When a foreign naUoa geta really hopping mad at tha United States It yella "Yankee" on tht aame principle. For the SSGtn Una In tht past year Spain haa again "pacified" Cuba.
