Fort Dodge dispatch: Farmers in this section report the reappearance of the army worm, which is crawling out from cleud grass, fences and brush heaps. Last year the worm was quite plentiful in this and other parts of the state for a few weeks about harvest time, and did considerable damage in fields where it preceded the farmer's reaper. Jtis principal mission then, however, seemed to be to lay its eggs, and its early appearance this year is the cause of considerable worry. Those who have studied the movements of the worm in other states say that the second year is its destructive year, when it marches in countless numbers for many miles, destroying every green thing in its path. $ome think that it may turn into a moth and ily away to some other section before the crops begin to grow, Guernsey dispatch; Later developments in the Kirker poisoning case disclose the fact that Mrs. Kirker was poisoned with strychnine.

April 13.—A telegram from j Larissa says that the presidents of the j Greek chamber of deputies and the I national federation, together with a ; number of Greek deputies, have j arrived there, and that everything | indicates that a great crisis is at hand, j LARISSA, April 13.—The Jinvaders j continue to block Baltino. It is re- j ported that Turkish reinforcements are now enronte for Disgata. The remainder of the insurgents have taken ] up strong 'positions near the moun- J tains. The latest details at hand are j that the invaders dynamited the Turks j opposite Phonika and Perliangia. j There has been an outbreak of small ; pox among the Turks, and many i deaths are reported at Damasi. j LOSDOX, April 14.—A dispatch from Constantinople says that the Turkish version of the fighting at Baltino has been published in the newspaper Ikdam, which states that 5,000 Greek troops were allo .ved to attack the place. Their retreat was then cut off and the Greeks were finally worsted. leaving 2,000 dead and dying upon tin- Held. The Ikdam adds: "Out of pure magnanimity the Turks took no prisoners." ST. PKTEitsHfKO, April 14.—The Novo Vrctnya declares that all coercion of Greece by the powers will cease as soon as war is declared. Otherwise it Would appear like a pro-Turkish intervention. VIENNA, April 15.—The best informed diplomats here regard war as inevitable. They say the strain cannot much longer be borne by either Turkey or Greece, and that the time has passed for the powers to attempt to intervene. In view of the dangerous position assumed by Greece, the question is reiterated, "Where does she count upon some power coming to her support at the crucial moment?'' IiAniSHA, April 10.—There is no truth in the Turkish reports that the Greek "irregulars" were driven out of Macedonia. Some of the members were unable to keep up with the main body and returned into Greek territory, but the main force continues successful operations against the Turks. This body captured Nipur, north of Baltino, and advanced to Pigavitza, where there is an important bridge across the mountain torrent. Chief Davelis then dispatched detachments of Italians to the left, who captured the important strategic position, Xlovof, and at once began fortifying it against an attack from the Turks. At the same time another column was dispatched to the right, and after a sharp light captured Sitovon, another strategic position of importance. The Greek ''irregulars" now hold all four roads leading from the Thcssalian frontier in, the direction of Grcvena and have vastly improved the Greeks' strategic position for the common cement of hostilities.

It is considered in London that war between Turkey and Greece has actually begun, Turkish declarations that war has "broken out" being merely for the purpose of diplomatically putting the cause of the war «on the kingdom of Greece, WOOL GROWERS' WANTS. IVoHteru Soimtors Firm for it Chanjjr«' In the l)iuj;ley Kill, WASHINGTON, April 18.—Western senators, after several conferences, have reached an agreement to stand together for important changes in tho wool schedule of the Dingley bill.

WASHIXOTOX, April 10.—The popnlist members of the house have decided to undertake the policy of forcing the j republicans to keep a quorum in the city. "Without a quorum, to carry motions to adjonrn for two days, it will be necessary for the house to meet every day. After an informal conference of the populists, letters were sent to those of their own party who are absent from the city, urging them to return at once. There are twenty-two populists in the house, and Mr. Simpson asserts that he expects enough democrats will work with them to make an effective minority. Speaker Reed is urging- republican members not to leave the eitv. BRAVE ATTEMPT TO LEVEES INTACT.

AWFUL TRAGEDY. 3Ia =" arder Memphis, Tenn., April 19.—The flood crisis is at hand, and new perils cpn- front dwellers along the lower Mississippi Advices from Natchez and other points below Vicksburg indicate a very grave situation. The swift current which is rising steadily, Is beating against the levees with such force as to cause acute apprehension at many places. At Natchez the river is near the top of the levee, and everything possible is being done to fight back the encroaching waters. All kinds of rumors have been current regarding the loss of life on Davis Island, but diligent telegraphic inquiry fails to confirm the story. It IB known that three negroes were drowned on the island, but outside of these fatalltie no further loss of life is known to have PASCOAO, K. I..

Dr. Hunter Indicted, FKANKKOHT, Ky., April 19.—The grand jury has returned true bills against Dr. W. Godfrey Hunter, republican candidate for United States senator; ex-Congressman John H. Wilson, eleventh district, Hon. E. T. Franks, second district; Noel Gaines and his brother-in-law, Thomas Tanner. The indictments are for conspiracy to bribe. All the accused parties are republicans except Gaines and Tanner. This action is regarded as fatal to Hunter's prospects. The feeling is very bitter. German Chancellor Resign*. BKJU.IN, April ]9.—Prince Hohen- loho, the imperial chancellor, recently forwarded his resignation to Emperor William. As reasons animating him to resign, Prince Hohenlohe urges his inability to carry out his solemn prom ise to submit to the reichstag and the diet two bills, one regulating political meeting's upon ti more liberal basis and the other reforming the proccdur of military trials.

This it. to bn repeated from time to tune with an idea to learning the Ejiglish taste relative to butter and ultimately creating a, market there for our gutter. England now gets most of her putter from Penmark. Minneapolis dispatch: It is an- npuncod that the Minnospta Beet Sugar Company has been organized, with a capital stppk pf $8,000,000.

The levees between Bedford Store, four miles south of Delta, La., to Duckport, six miles above, are in a precarious condition tonight, and every man and boy available is at work strengthening the embankments. At some points in thiE stretch of levee the water is washing over and the greatest alarm is felt Rosedale, Friar's Point, Helena and other places, however, report an encouraging improvment in the situation The river has declined one-tenth of a foot at Greenville, and the fall of two tenths of a foot reported at Cairo gives renewed hope that the vast amount o water will recede in time tp make i good crop. BIG LEVER GONE. Ol6:istroiis Kcgults Expected, from Keccnt Break, Vicksburg, Miss., April 19.—The levee at Biggs, two and a half miles belo\v Delta, La., broke at 10 o'clock las night. The crevasse was 120 feet wide twenty minutes after it gave way. Del ta is directly opposite Vicksburg. Th disaster is a great one. At towns be low Old Delta the condition is mos serious and alarming, the water bein up to the top. Above Delta, at Willov slough and at Maxwell's front, th situation is such as to cause the great est uneasiness. Some of the best in formed people in this section now de spair of holding the Louisiana line mor than forty-eight hours longer, as thej state that many points cannot stand fifty-three feet, which seems now cer tain. There is a strip of swamp about two miles wide immediately behind the Biggs levee, but beyond that the back water will run over cotton lands. It appears impossible to find any one here at this hour who knows anything of the topography o£ the country, which may be overflowed by this crevasse, but the general impression is that its effects will be extremely disastrous. Where Help Is Needed. Washington, April 19.—Secretary Alger has received a telegram from one of his inspecting officers at Cairo, who has been working in the Yazoo district. In part it says: "Thirty to forty days is the estimated period of time before laborers can go to work in the inundated area, but as this period will vary with the locality, the inspector recommends that no supplies be sent for longer period than ten days. After ten days, if the flood does not to some extent subside, the destitution will reach its maximum. If, however, it becomes evident that a crop this year cannot be made, the destitution and suffering will increase and eventually extend to perhaps one-half of the entire population of the iundated country. If the flood subsides by the middle of May as now seems likely, the destitution will be by that time relieved, it will require a fall pf about six feet in the river before the banks will be clean and the inundated territory will drain out and planting can begin." Kears for a Steamer, Benton Harbor, Mich,, April 19 — Great anxiety is felt here for the safety of the steamer Frank Woods of the Graham & Morton line, and her crew of twelve men.
