E. dotnbs, fo* five Or six years a junk gatherer hereabouts, dead. Coroner Morse was at oHcie notified and went out to see what was the matter. He found a flask that had contained alcohol in one pocket, and deciding that the old gentleman had drank too much and died either from that or exposure, had him brought to the court house basement by Under* taker McGregor. He was known to be related to M. C. Baker, who lives on the old Woodworth farm near Bancroft, and he was at once notified. He came on the 8:07 train and at once asked for a post mortem, believing that the old gentleman had been foully dealt with. In conversation he stated that Mr. Combs was 72 years of age, had married his sister and had one son about 38 years of age, a railroad man. Ho came from Tama county some- years ago and had made his home with the Bakers except when he was out gathering up old scrap's and junk. After spending all of the winter at the farm he had set out some weeks ago and was at work in Algona. Mr. Baker says that he drank but little and that he does not believe that that was the cause of his death. When found there were only some 60 cents in his pockets and Mr. Baker and others believe that he had more money. A few days ago he was seen to take a roll of bills from his pocket in a restaurant. A.dozen tramps were about the Northwestern depot Sunday morning and it is possible that his death Sunday,night has some connection with them. Mr. Combs was known as a pleasant and honorable old gentleman. THE UPPER DES MOINES is in position to confirm a public impression in his favor. It knew'him as faithful and honorable in his business relations. No post mortem was held as the coroner was satisfied that death had not resulted from any external injuries, and the body was buried at 1 o'clock yesterday, the Baker family attending the remains to the grave.

A, Brunson struck up quite an acquaintance with the Chinaman cook, a young fellow who has been with the family many years and who has been taught English by his mistress and who talks; and reads quite readily. He was not well one day and Asa gave him some pills he had and told him they would straighten him out. He visited with him a great deal learning about Chinese customs, etc., and since coming home has had a letter which we give verbatim. It is well written, the legibility of it fully compensating for the occasional misses in grammatical construction: WINTEBS, Yolo county, Oal. April 29— Dear Sir—Mr. A. A, Brunson: It seems a long time since I have seen you I hope t^at you are very well I do not forget all you kindness to me-You were very kind to give me about that pills I very like take that for try But China doctor cannot let me have them pills I am very very' sorry for that But he tell me take his medicines he getting better day or two We take it we be well about four day I been to country working now I hope see you again sooner If we do not meet you again on world may we meet in heaven Here be raining on last Friday evening above six-clock to Saturday all day and night Sunshine on Sunday morning is rained above 1J£ inch From Your Truly E.

Bradley & Nicoulin. OYOLONE IN SIOUX OOTJNTY, First Reports "Were Exaggerated, but Several Persons Wore Killed and the Loss of Property Is Largo. The official report shows the cyclone In Sioux county last Friday to have been less serious than at first reported: Sioux CITY, Iowa, May 5.—Order is coming out of chaos in the narrow district of Sioux county, which was swept by the tornado on Friday afternoon. Prompt aid has made the survivors of the devastated country as comfortable as possible; nearly all the dead are now buried, and none of the injured now living are thought to be fatally hurt, The Journal's staff representative, who went all over' the ground swept by the storm, says $10,000 will cover the property damage, including houses, barns, out-buildings and fences, In few places are the crops seriously damaged, for grain cannot be up far enough to be killed or lodged by the wind, and the principal injury in the fields was by the plastering of mud which they received, This "mud shower" was a prominent part of the, phenomena of the storm, but it seems that the power of the wind simply scooped up the black, wet earth from the surface in several places and distributed it over other fields. The correct list of dead numbers ten, as has already been stated. None have died since Saturday. About twenty persons were injured in Sioux, county. A SUNDAY BLOW AT BENWIOK. The following dispatch' in the Capital shows a bad wind in Humboldt county: BENWIOK, Iowa, May 6.—At 6:15 a heavy wind, hail and rain storm passed over this place,' blowing down signs, unroofing a freight car and terribly frightening the people.
