The eastern half of the town was en

KIbksvim.k, Mo., April 28. Desoln-

has been the portion of Kirksville's In
habitants during the past 12 hours, as
the result of last evening's relentless
tornado. Many of the dead and dying
remained in tbe ruins during the night,
and others who have been taken to places
of shelter died before morning.
A small army of doctors from the osteo
pathy college, students and citixens spent
the dark hours in ceaseless bunt for
unfortunates. The dead were carried
away to a selected spot to be cared for
when the needs of the Injured should ue
satisfied. All night long lanterns darted
here and there among the debris, answer

sight of some struggling form fighting to

Morning broke bright and beautilul and

ONE DEAD. AN
Property Worth $250,000 to $300,000
Shattered Train Seized by a Mob
of 800 or 1000.
Spokane, April 29. A Wardner special
to the Spoksnian Review says:
Wardner today has been tbe sceno of
the worst riots since the deadly lator
war of 1892. One man is dead, another
is thought to be mortally wounded, and
property valued at $250,000 has been de
stroyed bv giant powder and fire. Tbe
damage was done by union men and
sympathizers from Canyon creek, about
20 miles from Wardner.
This morning a mob of from 800 to 1000
men, all 01 them armed and many
of them masked, seized a train at Burke,
at the bead of Canyon creek. There
were nine box cars and a passenger
coach, and they were black with the mob
The visitors brought with them 3000
pounds of giant powder.
After a parley of two hours, 140 masked
men, armed with Winchesters, uurxe in
the lead and Wardner following, started
with yells for the Bunker IlillA.Sulllvan
mill and other buildings, a third of a
mile from the depot. They sent pickets
ahead, and one of these pickets fired a
shot as a signal that the mill was aban
doned. This was misunderstood by the
main body of the mob, who imagined
that non-union miners in the mills had
opened fire on them, and they began
firing on their own pickets. About 1000
shots were thus exchanged between the
rioters and their pickets, and Jack
Smith, oi.e of the pickets, formerly of
British Columbia, and a noted figure in
drill contests, was shot dead. The fatal
error was discovered after a few seconds'
firing and Smith's body brought down
from the hillside.
By this time the strikers had taken
possession of the Bunker Hill A Sullivan
mill, which they found deserted, the
manager baxing directed his employes
not to risk their lives battling with the
Powder was called for, and 60 50 pound
boxes were carried from the depot to tbe
mill. The heaviest charge was placed
among the machinery of the mill. An
other charge was placed under the brick
office building. Other charges were
placed around the mill. Then the board
ing bous, a frame structure, was fired.
Fuses leading to the charges were lighted,
and the strikers carrying the dead body
of the picket, retired to a safe distance.
At 2:30 p, m. the first blast went off.
It shook the ground for miles, and build
Inffa In Wardner, two miles away, trem
bled. At intervals of about thirty seconds
four other charges went off, the filth be
ing the largest and completely demolish
ing the mill. Tho loss to the Bunker
Hill A Sullivan Company is estimated
from 250,000 to 1300,000.
In a few minutes the strikers went
back to the station, tho whistle was blown
for etragglers, tho mob soon climbed
abroad and at 3 o'clock, just three hours
after its arrival, the train pulled out for
During the fusillade from the guns of
the mob, Jim Chayne, a Bunker Hill A
Sullivan millman, was severely shot
through the hips. It is reported that he
was carried off by the strikers, and bis
wound Is probably fatal. J. J. Rogers,

I any, was shot through the lip, but his
wound as trivial.
A Pleasant, Simple, Safe
Cure for It,
Catarrh of the stomach has long been
considered the neit thing to incurao.e.
The nsual symptoms are a
bloated sensation after eating, accomp
anied some times with sour or watery
risings, a formation of gases, causing
pressure on the lungs and heart and
difficult breathing; headache, fickle ap
petite, nervousness and a general played
out and languid feeling.
There is often afoul taste in the mouth,
coated tongue, and if the interior of
stomach could be seen it would show a j
slimy, inflamed condition.
Thecure for this common and obstinate
disease is found in a treatment which
causes the food to be readily and
thoroughly digested before it has time to
ferment and irritate the delicate mucous
surfaces of the stomach.
To secure a prompt and healthy digest
Ion is the one necessaiy thing to do, and
when normal digestion is secured the
catarrhal condition will have disap
peared. According to Dr. Har'.anson the safest
and best treatment is to use alter each
meal a tablet, composed of Diastrse,
Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nox, Golden Seal
and fruit acids.
These tablets can now be found at all
drug stores under the name of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets, and, not being a pat
ent medicine, can be raed with perfect
safety and assurrance that bealty appe
tite and thorough digestion will follow
their regular use after meals..
Mr. N. J. Booher, of 2710 Dearborn St.,
Chicagj, 111., writes: "Catarrh is a
local condition resulting from a neglected
cold in the head, whereby the lining
membrane of the nose becomes inflamed
and the pqlsonous discharge therefrom,
passing back into the throat, reaches the
stomach, thus producing catarrh of the
stomach. Medical authorities prescribed
for me three years for catarrh of tbe
stomach without cure, but today I am
the happiest of men after using only one
box of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I
cannot find appropriate words to express
my good feeling. I have found flesh,
appetite and sound rest from their use.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets Is the safest
preparation as well as the simplest and
most convenient remedy for any form of
indigestion, catarrh of the stomach,
bitiousnesssour stomach, heartburn and
bloating after meals.
Send for book, mailed free, on stomach
troubles, by addressing the F. A. Stuart
Co., Marshall, Mich. The tablets cin
be fonnd at all drug stores.
Full Amnesty Was Promised the Rebels
Upon Surrender, but They De
clared They Wanted a Guarantee
of Good Faith.
Manila, April 29.-3 p. m. The con
ference today between Otis and Colonel
Manuel Aguelezea and Lieutenant Jose
Bernal. who came from General Lima
onder a flag of truce yesterday to ask for
a cessation of hostilities, were fruitless.
It is understood the Filipino commis
sioners were given the terms upon which
the Americans will consent to negotiate.
The Filipinos admit they have been
deleated, and it is expected will leturn
with fresh proposals from General
Wahiiimiton, April 2!). The following
dispatch was received this morning from
"Manila, April 29. The conference
with insurgent representatives termi
nated this morning. Their request was
for a cessation of hostilities of three
weeks to enable them to call their con
gress to decldo whether to continue the
prosecution of the war or prepare terms
of peace. Tho proposit'ott was declined
and full amnesty promised on surrender.
It la believed the insurgents are tired of
war, hut seek to secure terms of peace
through what they denominate their
representative congress. OTIS."

Cantos, O., April 20. Mrs. George
said today, as to her future plans :
"I will lecture on woman's right's. I
believe women ought to vote, and that a
jury ought to be half women. I think a
woman has just as much right to make
something out of herself as a man."
Mrs. George has had several propo
sitions from theatrical managers, but re
fuses to consider them. Several tillers
of marriage have been sent her, but
they are all ignored.
