A 1 number of .Americans were present, who were attracted from the city by the opportunity to observe how the American 'girl filled and graced her exalted position. FOR LIMBS LOST BY VETERANS. Government to PUT Over SCOO.OOO for Substitutes or "Commutation." The government is to expend over 'SiJOO.OOO during the next fiscal year upon veterans and soldiers of the rcgu- , la-r army who have lost a limb in service.. Most of the beneficiaries are survivors: o'l the- rebellion, but there arc also^ many enlisted men of the regular army, who have lost limbs, or the use of tlib'm,: since tjhe war. ; Every third year they are entitled to' a new itrtificia.l arm or leg or for ""com-, mutation" in cash. An order in given, to; them- on any artificia] limbmaker! they select, and transportation is fur-i nisluxl to them from their heroes to'thV city whcae -the. limb is to bo fit-fed.j Sometimes this transportation amounts', to a grcvi.t deal more than the tunountj expended for the; artificial limb, e^p daily when the beneficiary travels froirii a di.staut western hamlet to places like; New York, and Philadelphia, Tttej greater part of the beneficiaries secure: their allowance, every third year. Th'oj other 'two years n\smaller portion 'rc-j ccive their allowance. '' [ In the big- year, such a.- the next fi&t|al| year, the war department pays put about SCOO.OOO .for artificial arms and; legs, or for "commutation" for thcj'ii. It is found that, despite the larg-e number of deaths annually among the pen-i sioncrs, the disbursements do not de-| ci-case year by year. It remains to-day, about as it wcs ten or twelve years- 1 ago. This is accounted for by the fact that although 1C put of 1,000 die every 1 yenr, as many new claims arc approved, .annually. .STORM DELAYS A WEDDING. Llcet»« It toil in tit f Panic, But CupJd '.

A HV 5 *- singular bicycle accident occurred in Atchison, Kau., the other evening, as u result of which tdward Licklederer, ogx;d 22 years, is a sufferer from unusual wounds which probably will prove fatal. Young Lickledcrcr •\vas coasting- down North Fifth avenue, a very steep thoroughfare, and speeding at a rateof 30 miles or more nn hour, when, losing control of his machine, he was shot through n large plate glass window of a corner store, loiidiaig against the inside wall on the far side of the building with terrific force. His head was almost chopped to pieces. His nose was splintered, his ears a! most torn off arid bis face and body were lacerated with many cuts that reached to the bone and which, even should be recover, will horribly disfigure him for life. PROPERTY FOR THE INDIANS. Uncle Sum Olvtt Well-DHpoted Bed Men » Start ID Life. The authorities at Lower Brulc agency in South Dakota a few days ago commenced distributing among the Indians-at that ogeacy who have taken allotments of'land in severally a vast number of horses,,, colts, cows and calves, and sufficient agricultural im- plemfents to stock nil the white farmer? in several townships. Each head of a. faiiiilv receives a spniv.ot Tnares, one of them with .a colt; one breeding and one milch cow, one wa^on, one plow, one barrow, one set of harness, on ax, * hoe and a fork. , . • The stock being issued to tbe fortunate red man is the best that could be obtained in the market. A tota' of 300 breeding.cows and 700 milch cows,each, with a ealf, have been issued to the Indians at this agency. A little latereach person, male or female, who has taken an nJIotment of land will receive a cash payment of * M - nn(i ^ nearly every Indian, male and female, on the lower Krule. reservation has taken an allotment, of la.nd, the cash payment, will aggregate many thousands of dollars. In taking allotments the Indians were entitled 10 land as follows: Each head of a family, 100 :icrcs; each single person over IS years of nge, 180 acres; each orphan, child under 18 years of age, 80 ncrep, tiud to each other person under IS years of age, SO .acres. Where the J.inds were mainly valuable for grn/.ing purposes an additionnl allotment in quantities, ns stated above, was made to each individual. Thus it will be seen that many members of a single family were entitled to t.ike ulinments. and owing to this having been done in numerous instances the members of many Indian families will receive from $100 to $300. WHY IT WAS. GIVEN UP. Chairman Walslj, of tlic Cotton St»t»i Exposition, RcgrtlK It* rtillorc. Ex-Senator Patrick Walsh, chairman of the southern advisory committee of the Southern States exposition at ChJ- 'cago, said regarding the abandonment of the exposition, which was decided upon the other day: "The Southern States exposition was abandoned because an insufficient number of states had entered by the date fixed by Chicago for definitely favorable responses from the slates. Tbe Chicago exposition committee stipulated that nine states should enter the exposition May 25, and in default of this entry Chicago would be compelled to drop her end of the enterprise. On May 25 there were only three slates ready to enter the exposition. South Carolina. Alabama and Georgia. These 1 states were ready with good exhibits. Maryland had applied for space. Nothing bad been successfully done by any other state. Tennessee and Mississippi had given official notice that they would not participate in the exposition at Chicago. On. May 2S, at the meeting of the southern advisory committee, a letter from the Chicago executive committee dated May 2C, and signed by tbe Chairman, Mr. E. F. Lawrence, was presented. It stated: 'The Chicago committee decided to do no more toward promoting the holding of the exposition this year, feeling that two so important states as Tennessee and Mississippi should not be left out of the undertaking.' There -was nothing left for tlie southern advisory committee to do except to declare the exposition off, at least for this year." MAKES NEW OCEAN RECORD.
