TO SAVE FARE GOT BOXED UP AND SHIPPED BY EXPRESS. Wanted to Come West and Hadn't Money for Ticket Queer Cler gyman Has Had His Own " Grave Dug and Coffin Ready-Other News. Kalamazoo, Mich,, July 3. When the westbound American express drew into Kalamazoo about 5 p. m. today a boy was discovered in a big box in the through car from Boston to Chicago and on the way to Cheney, Wash. He was taken to the jail and there gave his name as William Edmondeon, of Boston. He said he had been working in a shoe fac tory at Haverhill, Mass., and want ed to go to Cheeney, Wash., where he had relatives, but had only $19 with which to pay his fare. So he devised the scheme of sending mon ey to his relatives in the Far West and advised them to be on the look out for an expreas package. He then had a friend of his box ; him up with some provisions and he was billed through to destina tion. He is eighteen years old and a bright young fellow. Dan't Fail to Try This.

Only 50 cents. Manitowoc, Wis., July 6. The Rev. J. Reinhart, an old retired Clergyman of this city, has made unique preparations for his death and burial, which he prophesies will take place this month. Recent ly he supervised the digging of his grave at Evergreen cemetery, laying a bottom bf cement, and construct ing walls therein. On a - big, flat sandstone he inscribed the follow ing in German script: Rev. J. Reinhakt. Born May 6, 1833, Died , 1902. After he had finished this he told his interested audience that every thing being now complete, he would go home to die. He has been con fined to his bed since, and his death is a matter of but a short time. His coffin has been ordered. St.. Joseph, Mo., July 8. At 11:30 o'clock, today James Blades, Lock Al'en and James Murray, no torious prisoners in the cojnty jail, wrecked the rear wall of the jail building with a powerful charge of dynamite. Allen, Blades and Mur ray then made a fierce fight for lib erty, but the gnard3 were too quick for them and beat them back with Winchesters. Seventy-five prison ers are confined in the jail, but ma ny of them made notflbrt toescape, and those who were mrvy enough to try to follow Blades and his com panions were clubbed into submis sion. As if by a miracle, but one waa injured, although the explosion was felt for several block and eve ry window in the courthouse on the side next to the jail was shatter d. Blades and Allen are under sen tence for highway robbery, and Murray is a government prisoner. They are now chained face down to the floors of their cells. Other prisoners were apprised of what was to happen about five min utes before the fuse was lighted, and on advice of the leaders ,of the plot they sought safety in their cells just before the explosion occurred. The jailor was at dinner in anotner part of the building. Charles May, who has three times been under sentence of death, declined to take part in the plot, although he admits that he knew of it. The damage to the jail and courthouse is estimat ed at .$15oo, and until repairs can be made a large armored guard will be necessary to retain the prisoners. So many new phases of the mur derer's charcter developed during the visit that the women were unable to give any analysis of his personal ity. He saw a newspaper man go down the track not 50 feet away, and he told the women that there was the posse's advance agent. He intimated that he was fleeing from the reporters who wanted to inter view him, and not from the guards. And this was when many men were stationed on all sides. Before he walked away from the house through the guards he gave the wo men several mementoes. The GerreUs' home is situated about two miles up the track of the old Columbia & Puget Sound Rail road. After loafing around Renton for the night, Tracy, with Ander son in tow, staited up the tracks. The pair journeyed slowly. They sat down and rested in the dense brush beside the track a few rods on the Renton side ofjjthe Gerrell's home. They rested for some time, until Miss Baker and Mrs. McKin ney passed them. Miss Baker and Mr?. McKinney were out picking blackberries. Tra cy watched them for a long time. Once they were so close that he could almost have touched them with his hand. They passed on up the track from Renton toward the Gerrells home. Tracy ventured nearer the srack. Just then Charles Gerrells, an 18-year-old boy, came up the track. He beard someth.ug snap. He looked back, walked on a few feet, and looked again. It was then 11:30 in the morning. "Hey," cried Tracy v "stop a mo ment, my boy." He stepped from the bushes and walked to the lad. "Well I guess you've heard of me," remarked the convict'. He smiled pleasantly as he spoke. The two women were a few yards away. "That's Tracy," said Mrs. Mc Kinney, jestingly, when the' mu derer spoke the first time. "No," said Miss Baker, "1 don't know who you are." "Well, I'm Tracy," said the out law. His words created consterna tion among the trio. "Now, don't be afraid," said Tra cy. "I won't hurt you.'" "Weir, Mr. Tracy." said Mrs. McKinney, recovering from the shock, "I am glad to see you." "I would never haveknown you by your picture," exclaimed Miss Ba ker. "Ah, now, you are jollying me," said the filayer of half a dozen men, "But don't be afraid. I never harmed a woman in my life," and as he spoke he took off his hat re spectfully to the two before him. When he heard that'youDg Gerrell's home was a few rods up the track he, informed the party that all would have to -go there. Before they reached the house he sent the boy on to warn the mother of the approach. "Tell' her," said Tracy, earnestly, "that I bring harm to none of hers." They enter the house, and Traey took off his hat to Mrs. Gerrells. Tracy went in by the front door as he spoke, and sat down on a trunk at the side of the room. Inside five minutes he had quieted all fear a mong his listeners with the excep tion of Mrs. Gerrells, who was somewhat nervous throughout his visit. With the one exception he made them all feel at home. As Tracy sat upon the trunk his unwilling companions were able for the first time to observe him close ly. He looked fresh and strong. Eliminating his eyes, his face waa serene and pleasant. The eyes, how ever, were an unnaturaldark blue. He had an uncomfortable habit of rolling them when he made a threat. The women say that he did not look unusually thin, but seemed to be in fine physical condition. Men tally they say he was one of the keenest men they ever met. He was dre?sed . in a black suit, and wore a black felt hat. His trousers were much too short, a malter 6f much merriment to himself. He had" no tie or collar, but had jewel ry to spare. Mrs. McKinney's child began to cry when Tracy entered the house and Mrs. Gerrells -looked terrified, The outlaw called the child to him. "Now, now, littlfs girl," he said, passing his hand"around her shoul der and stroking her hair, "don't cry; I wouldn't let any one harm an innocent little thing like you." When the guards collected around the bouse afterward, the child crept to Tracy's side for protection. SSs fas ti mua ggaature u m 2- every SITUATION ALARMING FLOODS THE WORST EVER KNOWN ; IN DIFFERENT STATES. Various Towns Inundated Thous ands of Residences Surrounded i by Water Crops Destroy ed and Live Stock Drowned. Des Moines, July 9. The con tinued rains forced nearly all Iowa's streams from their banks and the destruction is assuming immense proportions. It is impossible to es tirnate'the damage from the inde finite reports received. The dam age is especially extensive in the Central, Northern, Western and Southwestern parta of the state The valleys of the Sioux and Maple riv ers are flooded and Woodbury and Monona counties are under water. The Iowa river at Marshalltown is the highest since 1S81. Many coun ty bridges have been destroyed. Cattle and hogs have been drowned in large numbers in the Iowa val ley. At Cedar Rapid, 5.4 inches of rain has fallen since July 1. The Cedar Rapids river is out of its banks, and many families have been forced from their homes. Numerous bridges have been swept away in Lynn county. The Skunk river and Squaw creek are out of their banks and near the confluence in Story county, thousands of acres are flooded and crops practically destroyed. The continuous rains are paralyz ing business in Fort Dodge, and the railroads are almost out of business. The west end of the city is inundat ed and families are moving out. The Dae Moines river is up eix feet at that point. Because of the sat uration of all the insulation on the pires, electric power has been shut tff and the town is in darkness. Near Oxford, in Johnson county, in a wind storm last night, Jacob Burkhart waa crushed to death by the falling oi a barn on the farm of' Wesley Prush. Haifa dozen barns were destroyed in the same neigh borhood. Near North Liberty, the residence of Jacob Neidheiser waB wrecked and the family had a nar row escape. All over Johneon coun ty the storm destroyed windmills and barns. The damage in the county is estimated at $5o,ooo. A deluge visited the town of Ex cia last night and trains on the Au dubon branch of the Rock Island could not pass that point today. The town is under four feet of wa ter. The Raccoon river at Aden, after being stationary all day began to rise rapidly tonight., It shuts off the electric plant and is doing great damage. The levee on the Raccoon river, near Murray and Railroad streets, commenced to weaken this after noon and at 3 o'clock water was flowing over and through it in ma ny places. Heroic efforts were made to strengthen, it, while nearly loo residents of the district endangered fled for their lives, many leaving their household goods behind them. Des Moines, la., July 9. The Dss Moines river reach the high water mark of 1892, which waa 2o feet at.midnight. At this hoar the levee on the north side of town broke, flooding a large residence section. Most of the families re moved in the evening. A small break occurred in the Raccoon riv er levee just after midnight,, and a large force of men is attempting to hold the flood in check. Two Rock Island east-bound passenger trains, due here tonight, are held at Com merce,, 20 miles west of here, where the tracks are covered with water. Trains on other roads, though late keep in motion. The Des Moines river dam is weakening. If it goes out it will endanger four city bridges' and all the rail road bridges. The false work of the new Sixth-avenue bridge, which went out last night, today swept a way five spans of the Chicago Great Western bridge over the Des Moines. South of the junction of the Des Moines and Raccoon, the river is three miles wide for many mile's, and is destroying crops and drown ing livestock. , Omaha, Neb., July 9. The rain that began falling last evening con tinued today. Reports received show the conditions in the flooded districts to be worse than at first re ported. Morningtrains were from one to five hours late into the city, and some of them had been abandoned entirely. At Superior, the Bur lington Railroad bad looo feet of track washed bodily into the Re publican river, and the Santa Fe was blocked last night by a foot of water running over the roadbed for a mile west of town. At Blair, a.quarter of a mile of the North western track was washed out and the town of Horman is still a lake. At Kennard, 6oo feet of track of the same road was carried away, and the filled approach of the Missouri river bridge east of town began to slide away. A conservative estimate places the losses from floods in Nebraska at over $l,ooo,ooo, and some esti mates are twice that amount. Peoria, 111.., July 9. A terrific electric and rain storm swept over Peoria and the adjacent country last night. Rain fell in torrents for sev eral hours, and the damage wrought wa3 extensive. All the railroad lines entering the city are greatly affected. A Lake Erie & Western freight went through a bridge at Harmdale, six miles from here. The engine and several freight cars are piled in the bottom of Farm creek. The engineer was fatally injured, and the fireman lies dead under the engine. The Best Liniment for Strains. Mr. F. H. Wells, the merchant at Deer Park, Long Island, N. Y., says: "I always recommend Cham berlain's Pain Balm as the best lin iment for strains. I used it last winter for a severe lameness in the side, resuhirg from a strain, and was greatly pleased with the quick relief and cure it affected." For eale by Graham & Wells. Need More Help.

TRACY TERRIFIES FARMER'S FAMILY AND GETS RE- VOLVER AND CARTRIDGES. ; The Victim Is Farmer Johnson, Whc Obey8 Tracy for Fear His Fam ily Will Be Killed. Seattle, July 10. Tracy compell ed a rancher named Johnson to go to Tacoma yesterday afternoon and buy a revolver under penalty of murdering Johnson's family. This I report was received here at 11:45 8. m. today. Tracy rode to Johnson's 'place, one mile from Kent, on tha white horse he stole near Kenton Tuesday night. Arriving he gave the farmer money with which to buy a revolver at Tacoma. Tracy told Johnson he would kill the fam ily if the messenger informed tha officers' where he was. Johnson obeyed orders, Tracy remaining at the ranch until last night, when Johnson returned with the weapon. The outlaw departed on horseback and Johnson waited until this morn ing before raising an alarm. Saattle, July 10. At 8 o'clock last night Tracy was reported as having called at the house of a man named Hillman, on the east side of Green Lake, in the city limits of Seattle, about eight miles from the heart of the city. He attempted to use the telephone there, but failed and at once left. The hounds were at once put on his trail and follow ed the scent, but lost it at the wa ter's edge, and were unable again to pick it up. This morning a report reached the sheriff's office that Tracy had been Eeen just north of Ballard, ten miles north of here, but at 11 o'clock this had not been verified. Two other reports give his location as Kent and Auburn, two towns south of Seattle. The sheriff does not be lieve that the man at Green Lake was Tracy, and has ssnt men out to investigate the Kent and Auburn rumors. Seattle, July 10. With the break of day this morning a determined effort to pick up the trail of the fu gitive Tracy was made by men and hounds, but again he had mysteri ously covered up his flight, and the numerous posses were completely baffled. Guards were posted in a very thorough manner around Lake Union, where the convict was last seen, and it is thought that every inch of ground is covered so that the first move of Tracy this morning ought to make his whereabouts known to his pursuers. Boston, July 10. The Post today says it is understood that Harry Tracy, the Oregon outlaw, was, eight or ten years ago, a habitue of Castle street district of this city, when that section was one of tha toughest in the city. He is said to have served time in the prisons of this state. Salem, July 10. A message was last night received by Superintend ent J. D. -Lee, of the Oregon Peni tentiary, from Sheriff Thoma3 Ro ney, of South Bend, Pacific county, Washington, stating that he had a man in jail answering the descrip tion of Merrill, and asking that an officer be sent down to identify the prisoner. Mr, Lee will send a man this evening, and if the prisoner at South Bend proves to be the runa way Oregon convict, he will be brought back here for trial on a charge of murdering three guards at the Oregon penitentiary. Tacoma, July 10. A country managed about 45, with a sandy mustache, bought one second-hand 45 Colt's revolver, a belt, and a box of cartridges at a leading gun store here yesterday morning at 11 o' clock. He paid $11.60 cents, and asked for a bill, saying he wanted it for some one else, and was in a hurry.
