While mowing weeds with a scythe on the streets of Estherville, George Syhes cut the leg off of a 2-year-old child of Austin Jones. A terrific hail and thunder storm occurred in the vicinity of Ottumwn recently. On the southern line of the Rock Island u hail storm stopped a north-bound passsnger train. The hail stones were of such immense size and came in such large quantities that they banked on the track like snou and stopped the locomotive. Every window in the train was broken.

Des Moines dispatch: The state executive council has completed the equalization of the state's assessment for this year. The assessed valuation of all property in the state is a trifle over 8554,000,000. On this a levy of 3.8 mills is made, intended to produce 81,400,000. If the entire .levy should be collected, it would produce considerable more than the amount named; but experience proves that there is a pretty steady proportion of taxes that are not paid in the year, hence the levy must be made a trifle larger than the amount required. Last year the levy was S.7 mills. There is a slight falling off in the assessed valuation us compared with recent years, which has been as follows: 1893, 8560,529.071 1894, 8557,072.750; 1895, 8559,059,824 1890, $555,974,448. A thousand miners went out very unexpectedly it: the Otturawa district a few days ago. The men were most o: them in, tlje Centerville field. Those who wept to work after a recent meet ing on the agreement ot the operators to pay 80[cents for the balance of the summer were the instigators of the. movement. The meeting passed a res olution giving the inference that the men would not work unless a demam for 81 for winter scale was also accedet to. The operators failed to make anj Arrangement and the miners at For bush. Ruthbun ami a, number of men CewtewUle refuged to work. CONSTANTINOPLE. August 3.—Indications now are that the powers will be compelled to send another ultimatum to Turkey. The action of Tewfik Pasha in submitting a series of amendments to the draft of a treaty of peace completed at a recent sitting of tl.e ambassadors is regarded as meaning a delay of two or three weeks in signing the preliminaries of peace. It is further thought that it will possibly necessitate another threat of force. PAr.i?. August 3.—A Constantinople special says the ambassadors have determined to maintain the wording of their draft of the treaty of peace without change. PARIS. August 4.—A Constantinople dispatch says: A division of the Turk- j ish fleet has been ordered to Crete and j fresh trouble is to be looked for. It j has been reported for some time that j Turkey contemplated landing addi- I tional troops in Crete. The admirals j in'i of the allied foreign fleets j •iavc decided to oppose by force the i landing of Turkish reinforcements ; there. They notified the Turkish civil | eovernor. but ha declined to accept j that decision. j CoNSTANTlNori.K. August 4.—Grumb- ! chow Pasha, has started bearing a i letter from the sultan to the kaiser. | He stops on his way to communicate | with the king of Roumania.

CHICAGO. August C-.—Five lives were j lost in an explosion which took place during a fire in the Northwestern grain elevator. Four of the dead are firemen. Either the bursting of a boiler or the explosion of mill grease caused the awful havoc. Accumulated dust, as dry and inflammable as gun powder, that had been piled up for years, formed a ready means for the fire. It spread with great rapidity, and then in a terrific explosion completing the work of scattering the fire throughout the entire structure. Just ns the firemen were getting into position for advantageous work, and nearly all the members of engine company Ko. 3 were mounting ladders and bringing hose to play on the interior from the upper windows, there came a roar that could be heard for half a mile, the roof was raised high in the air. and the walls came down with a crash. The force of the explosion was so great that the eastern wall was hurled into tlu river, the west wttll was tumbled down upon the heads of the unfortunate men below, and the roof was torn into fragments i and distributed for blocks around. Every window in the vicinity of the elevator wns shattered by the concussion, dozens of persons were struck by flying debris, and several small fires resulted from falling timbers that were still in flames. Besides the killed, thirty-one persons were injured, many nf them quite severely. Sixty Killed. SOFIA. Uulgaria, August 0.—By an explosion at the Cartridge Works at Rustchuk. forty-six were killed and very many injured. The lives of sixty of the latter are despaired of. WEYLFP TO THE FRONT. Ordered to Fdfe the ln*nrcent* by Orders From Madrid. HAVANA. August 6.—It is rumored that General Weylor's departure for Mantanzas was due to orders direct from Madrid, sending him to the front, General Weyler made preparations to take the field some days previous, but according to the statement made by nn officer of the palace, delayed his departure in order to mature a plan to capture General Cestillo. The captnin general is severely criticised here for not having taken the field earlier. For three weeks bands of insurgents from the east have been sweeping into Mantanzas, and even Havana, and there raided the small towns and made tiemonstrations before the larger ones. They landed expeditions and had time to organize, yet General Weyler contented himself by remaining on the defensive and only retaliating on the insurgents by issuing decrees that cruelly aggravated the sufferings of the unfortunate contcntrados. It was only when the insurgents boldly attacked the suburbs of the capital itself and public opinion forced him, that Wevler decided to go. HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE DEAD.

August 7.—The Athens correspondent of the Daily Telegraph asserts that the frontier line upon which the powers have agreed gives the Turks possession of the height situated on the right bank of the river Salambria and also the defiles of Kai- tunakns and Xerial, thus rendering the i defense of Larissa and the Salambria valley forever impossible to the Greeks. The correspondent says that this line places Greece completely at the mercy of Turkey. FAILURES ARE SMALL. MOWED THEM DOWN. Jltiplish Artillery Said to Have Killed i.noo. Loxnox. August 0.— The Evening News publishes a letter from a Cal- cuttr. volunteer reiterating the statement that (hiring the rioting there tho artillery fired point blank at .1. 000 mill hands, with the result that 1,500 were killed. The secretary of state for India, questioned in the house of commons July '.I as to the accuracy of the report to the above effect, replied that seven persons were killed and twcuty wounded. The Showing for the Past Month is a licmnrkahly Hood One. NEW YOKK, August 8.—It. G. Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: Four years ago, August 5, ISO!!, the first number of Dun's Review was issued, with failures in that month amounting to over SGO.000,000, while iu the month just closed failures have been only 87,117,727, the smallest in any month since 18SI2. The statement of failures by classes of business for July and for forty-six months shows hat in manufacturing failures have been smaller than in any month of the entire period, in trading smaller than n any oilier month except cne, and in many branches than in most months )f which records exist. Last month vas the first for four years of which he value of business reported by ilearings house was larger than in the ;:ime month of 18112, and the. tele- •rophic dispatches from all parts of the country given this week show a 'ratifying 1 improvement. This is partly lue to u large yield of wheat and good prices, though the. crop is probably not is large nor are the prices thus far as liigh as in 18!>2, but of cotton the price is higher and the yield probably larger than in that year. Other farm products ire realizing good prices, and the possible increase in the yield of corn may help to market the enormous surplus brought over from last j'ear. GOLD MINE SOLD. Nevada Gold mine Hrlngg a Cold # 15, OOO,OOO. Nicw YOHK, August 7.—For some time agents representing several syndicates of London capitalists have been in New York endeavoring to acquire gold mint's of proved value for the exploitation of the British market. The latest deal is the «ale by the Gold Creek Mining Company, of Nevada, of the property to a British syndicate for 81!i,0i)0,000. The original capital stock of the company is §300,000. Col. B. S. Bush, formerly chief engineer and constructor of the Croton Acqueduct, is engineer of the compan3 r . He estimates that over 8-):j,000,000 in gold is contained in the placer, which contains 500 acres in Elko, along the bunks of Gold creek. /liumuriiuiii a Great f hot. NK\V YOHK, August 7.—A^rum says Gus Zimmerman, rifle shot, again distinguished himself in a shooting match at Frankfort-On-Main, Germany, taking first prize, Zimmerman has won the first prize in all the important shooting matches in Europe since he has been there. A mild reproof from a mother caused her sixteen-year-old daughter to leap from a second-story window in Paris. Her sister, three years older, became so excited that she also leaped from the window. Both were fatally injured. In 1708, when „ Richard Askwright perfected his cotton-spinning ma chinery, there were in England 7,900 persons engaged in the production . of cotton textiles, Nineteen years later, in 1787, the number of persons em ployed in the spinning a»d weaving of coUon Imd increased to 330,000, On the Oth silver declined to r,ny f cents per ounce, making the metal in the silver dollar worth 430-10 cents. There arc prospects of a further decline. In the English commons recently the parliamentary sect clary for the foreign office, replying to a question, said the British protectorate! was proclaimed over Palmyra Island in May, 1SS!>, and the occupation would bo maintained. He asserts that Hawaii and Palmyra have no present connection. A Lincoln dispatch says: Answers to inquiries sent out from railroad headquarters and by Lincoln wholesalers show that the Nebraska corn crop, with very few exceptions, is standing the continued dry spell and hot winds remark-ably well. Farmers declare corn has been damaged little or none thus fur anil with no further hot winds can flourish for several days without rain. The extreme southwestern part of the state is an exception aud half a crop will hardly be harvested, but the urea is small. The following- from a press correspondent at Honolulu was received 'on the steamer Bi-lgic: "The. arrival of the steamer Mouna from San Francisco clue here on the M'Jth, means much for Hawaii. In official circles it is generally understood that United States Minister Sewall will carry out the instructions received in the last mail, said to be to this effect: If the Mouna brings word that congress failed to pass the annexation treaty, Minister Sewall is to declare a protectorate and raise the American flag. The American minister has had frequent consultations with President Dole within the past week and it is believed they agreed on this program." The steamer Olymphia, from Japan brings news that the Japanese government is seriously embarassed financially owing to the rapid pace at which the nation has been going 1 since the war with China. Civilization has necessitated increased expenditures in every direction, particularly the building of railroads and telegraph lines, new government buildings, improving the harbors and strengthening the army and navy. The treasury is not directly benefltted by the big" war indemnity paid by China, because it has been kept in England to pay for the new warships and armament. Owing to increased expenditures during the past year, all the government's reserve fuuds are exhausted. Washington dispatch: The Dingley tariff luw makes on average increase in duty of 14:50 per centas compared with that imposed by the old Wilson tariff law. This estimate is made by Charles H. Evans, and may be regarded as thoroughly reliable. Mr. Evans has been engaged in some capacity in the preparation of all tariff bills with which congress has dealt since 1872, aud is regarded as o.n authority on the subject. The above comparison was authorized to be made by congress at its recent session, and the results have just been made public. The comparison is made in rates expressed in ad valorem 'terms between the present law and the Wilson law, The statement places the average duty rate under the new Jaw at 54.00 per cent ud valorem, as against an average of 40.10 under the Wilson law. the averages beincr figured upon the basis of values in 1890. Kansas City dispatch: "Kansas has harvested the second largest wheat crop in all its wonderful history' as an agrjcnltural state," said the traffic manager of the Santa Fe. "It will approximate 00,000,008 bushels, and, moreover, is of excellent quality. Then there will be in addition a corn crop of probably 150,000,000 bushels. The a pgregate returns mean a great acldi Von to the wealth of the people o) the state.

MONTKVIDKO. t'ruguay, August 7. — The rebels are in conference with the president as to terms of peace. It is believed an agreement will be signed shortly and the war will end. Many public meetings to "urge paace have been held. literary >"otc,s. "A Year in the Fields" is the title of a charming volume written by John Burroughs and published by Houghton, Mifilin & Co., Boston. The author, endowed with wonderful descriptive powers, gives the reader a splendid little volume devoted to a description of the fields throughout all the year. The snows of winter, the flowers of spring, the harvests of autumn and the lax.y days of summer, all are pictured by the author in this study of nature. Twenty pictures from photographs by Clifton Johnson help to make the book one of the best of the year. The new battleship Iowa, "The Queen of the Navy," is beautifully pictured and well described in the August Midland Monthly (DesMoiues). Gen. Lyon and the Fight for Missouri." by Captain Clark, is a fine, tribute to the first great martyr to the union cause. To many, not the least interesting reading will be the announcement that, first of all the magazines, the Midland will in September profusely illustrate the Yukon Valley gold fields of Alaska. Mrs. Mary Hartwcll Catherwood's romances of the early clays at Mndc- inae havn gone far to make "The Bat Harbor of the West" classic ground; and few of those to whom the particular locality of the story is familiar will fail to 'be delighted with -'Thi: Cobbler in the Devil's Kitchen," in the midsummer Harper's, in which the humor and romance of voyageur daj's are very artistically blended. John Muir, the author of "Mountains of California," and our greatest authority upon American forestry, contributes to the August Atlantic a paper on ''The American Forests." It is an appreciative description of the beauty and wealth of out" great forests and u plea for their preservation by the national government. Outing for August contains two complete stones—"Inglcby's Neighbor," by M. Gertrude Cundill, and "The Match Game," by Win. A. Walker. Other notable features of a finely illustreted number are: "Golfers in Action," by Pi-ice Collier; "The Fishes of Our Bovhood," bv Ed. W. Sandys; "Polo in Play," by A. II. Godfrey; "The Season's Yachts and Freaks," by A. J. Kem-aly, and •Coasting the Mediterranean Awheel," by Paul E. Je iks. A new element has been introduced into the problem of the ori«-in of our cats by the discovery in Brazil of ;i tortoise-shell wild cat, of which the late Professor Cope had the only known museum specimen. This animal will be described from Prof. Cope's specimen, in Appleton's Popular Science Monthly for August, by" William II. Ballon. "The Burglar Who Moved Paradise." by Herbert D. Ward, has just been issued by Houghton, MifHin & Co., Boston. This story appeared as a serial in the Ladies' "Home Jour.ual:and it was the unanimous opinion of those who ruad it that it was one of the best that has appeared during the year. The writer has written a story of rare merit and one that captivates the reader and makes him reluctant to lay the book aside at any time before the end is reached. Mrs. Humphrey Ward, the wife of the author, lias written few works that excel this latest work of her husbrmd. A fall from u bicycle caused John Dillenkoffer, of Dunkirk; N. Y., tc continue unconscious for four hours. While so stupid from the fall that he had no recollection of the occurrence, he still knew enough to gather up th« pieces of his bicycle and trudge home with them. A liquor law in Pomona, Cal., provides that there shall be only two saloons in the town; each saloon must have but one bartender and one chair, and that for his sole use; there must be but one room and in it no barrels or boxes, or anything to afford a seat for a patron, TACOMA, Wash., August G.—j-jy. hundred reported killed up to July , is the record of the terrible outbreak of the great volcano of Mayon, on the island of Luzon, one of the Philippj ne group. All-night of June 20 this vol. cano began throwing up ashes ana lava in immense quantities and flames "1 were thrown upward considerably over 100 feet above the crater. T^ next day fifty-six bodies were recovered at a considerable distance {and the most recent dispatches to Hong Kong up to July 8 stated that not less ithan "jOO were known to be killed. It wa« probable, said the dispatches, that the loss of life would reach into the thousands, depending on the length o{ the eruption. On that dale lava streams had reached the cities of line- acay, Malipot and Liboy, and their destruction was certain. Fifteen smaller towns between these and the volcano had been destroyed and scores of the agricultural population had been overwhelmed while atlemptinn to escape.
