. Chicago, Febi 28. The Uvea of seven
people were instantly crushed out in
their sleep this morning, one other per
son fatally hurt, and two more danger
ously. Shortly after midnight a heavy
wind sprang up, increasing to a gale,
then almost to a hurricane. At Hal
stead and Nineteenth streets stood the
store wall of John York's dry-goods
house, recently gutted by fire. Part of
the walla were left standing, and on
these the proprietor began to rebuild:
The walls, which had reached a height
ot five stories, were still green and in
sufficiently braced. They gave way be
fore the tornado, and fell with a deafen
ing crash about 1 :30 o'clock this morn
ing on the two-story structure adjoining,
occupied aa a dwelling by the family of
John Schmidt, a saloon-keeper, and
William Kunz, a jeweler. The great
mass of bricks and mortar crushed the
structure like an eggshell and the occu
pants with it.
Drowned In the Floods.
Vienna, Feb. 28. A terrible calamity
has overtaken the village of Gergely,
near Paks, Hungary. Owing to a sud
den rise in the Danube, its 1,600 inhab
itants were forced to flee from their mud
huts to the church and school. The ad
vancing waters finally compelled them
to flee from these refuges or be drowned
in them. When they turned out again,
the flood surged nearly to their waists.
The children and infirm were assisted
by the stronger as they struggled along
toward Paks, with the waters continually
rising. First one, a mother with five
children, gave up, sank and perished in
the flood. Those were followed by many
others, the number of whom is unknown,
and the survivors reached Paks in an
exhausted, pitiable plight. No doubt
the number drowned is very large. The
people of Paks are deeply concerned for
their own safety, as the Danube ia 20
feet above normal.
A Blizzard In Wisconsin.
Hcdson, Wis., Feb. 28. The. severest
storm in many years visited this section
last night. Twenty-two inches of snow
fell, followed by a cutting wind from the
northwest. All trains on the northeast
and south divisions of the Omaha road
are blocked within a few miles of this
city. The last train out of here at 5
o'clock last night has 'not yet reached
the first station, 12 miles distant. The
public schools are closed, and business
is practically suspended. .The 6now is
piled on the principal streets in drifts
10 to 15 feet high. '
Cold Weather In the East.
St. Paul, Feb. 23. The weather is
clear, but the drifted snow obstructs all
kinds of traffic. ' Street-cars stopped
running during the night and did not
resume till late this morning. The
same state of affairs exists throughout
the northwest. The snow is two feet
deep on a level in many places, and
badly drifted in others. Railroad traffic
is about at a standstill. Redwing and
Stillwater are cat off from the outside
The Dreaded Scourge.
Portland, Or., Feb. 28. The five cases
of smallpox which have been mentioned
in the columns of the Telegram for the
past few days are doing well under the
care of Dr. Wheeler, and no new de
velopments of the dreaded disease are
reported. Agnes Bradley, who with
Genevieve Lonlwie is at the pesthouse,
is reported well on the road to recovery,
while the latter was in a more serious
condition today. All precautions are
being taken for the suppression of the
disease, and no additional cases are ex

Washington, .Feb.' 28. It ia an
nounced as a fact by the friends of the
North American Navigation Company
that a contract had been made by that
company and Jthe Panama railway for
the carrying trade between Panama and
San Francisco, Colon and New York.
The Pacific Mail Company is thus com
pletely defeated, and the prediction is
made that the new combination will cut
freight ratea via the Isthumus and, by
forming a competing line to the trans
continental roads, will force down the
latter's freight rated. The contract ia
said to have been signed yesterday, and
was probably due to the general impres
sion that the investigation of the
Panama acandal would, as far as thia
country is concerned, be finished. The
commission, it is anticipated, will make
a report to the effect that, while some of
the money sent to the United States
probably was used corruptly, it is .im
possible to trace it. Since the chief fear
of the Panama railway was thus dis
posed of, there remained no reason .why
it should not continue in its refusal to
make a contract with the Pacific Mail
Company and turn to the navigation
company association, with which it
would be advantageous. It is under
stood that by the terms of the agree
ment the contract will be rendered void
the moment the North American Navi
gation Company enters into the trans
continental pool. The Pacific Mail is
ready to sell out to the North American
Navigation, it ia understood.
Sentenced for Life.
Portland , Or., Feb. 28. Frank Ohleg-
schlager, the murderer of William H.
Woolridge, was sentenced to the peni
tentiary for life this morning by Judge
Human nature asserted itself again in
the presence of a large crowd of specta
tors, who were drawn to the courtroom
for the sole purpose of hearing sentence
pronounced . and observing its effect
upon the miserable wretch to whom it
applied.. When asked if he had any
thing to say as to why sentence should
not be passed, Ohlegschlager replied :
"Nothing," and when the judgment of
the court fell upon his ears his eyes
filled with tears, and. apparently, for
the first time the murderer realized all
that has happened. He walked out of
the courtroom with head bowed and
face highly flushed, and will be taken to
the penitentiary on this evening's train.
Joseph V. Dory, of Warsaw, 111., was
troubled with rheumatism and tried a
number of different remedies, but says
none of them seemed to do him any
good; but finally he got hold of one
(that speedily cured him. He was much
pleased with it, and felt sure that others
similarly afflicted would like to know
what the remedy was that cured him.
He states for the benefit of the public
that it is called Chamberlain's Pain
Balm.. For sale by Blakeley & Hough
ton, Druggists. 1
Mr. Albert Favorite, of Arkansas City,
Kan., wishes to give our readers the
benefit of his experience with colds. He
says : "I contracted a cold early . last
spring that settled on my lungs, and had
hardly recovered from it when I caught
another that hung on all summer and
left me with a hacking cough which I
thought I never would get rid of. I had
used Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
some fourteen years ago with much suc
cess, and concluded to try it again.
When I got through with one bottle my
cough had left me, and I have not suf
fered with a cough or cold since. I have
recommended it to others, and all speak
well of it." 50 cent bottles for sale by
Blakeley & Houghton, Druggists". -

Powder to be 27 per cent, stronger than
any other brand on the market. If an
other baking powder is forced upon you
by the grocer, see that you are charged
the correspondingly lower price.

not known in most delicate and perfect
quality where Royal Baking Powder ia

Steve Lowe was in from Olene yester
day. As soon aa spring opens Mr. Lowe
will start his shingle mill and run it for
greater results than ever. The country
everywhere is rapidly settling up, and
shingles will be called for with a louder
and perhaps a sweeter voice. The voice
of a sweet lady settler calling for shin
gles to cover her roof would thrill Steve
th rough and through. He has on hand
now about 25,000 shingles, and will
probably move the mill to a point some
where near the Falls, on the Fort road.

Hearts of Jadges-
Ex-Judgo Rearden says that all law
yers have hearts of mercy until they
become judges. In the superior court,
during the brief term he served, he al
ways refused criminal cases, because,
the mother of the young man was sura
to come around and show the gray hairs
under her aged bonnet. Judge Reardeq
says that on two occasions he saw Judge
Levy weaken under the effect of an oldt
western bonnet trembling with stuffed,
roses. The first time was in a case of
grand larceny, and the old lady who
called asked the judge for a pass to the
Episcopal home.. She said that her son
Fred had declared his intention to steal
because he couldn't "get work," and
whatever he had stolen was for her sake
and because he "couldn't get work."
"Why," said Reardon, "when the old
woman finistied her story. Levy was cry
ing as bitterly as. she and the young
criminal went to the house of correction
with the smallest sentence he could get.
"Next year the same fellow came up
on an outrageous charge of robbery, and
the ancient lady turned np as usual withi
a full set of tears. She shed them free
ly, but the judge was familiar with her
tactics and the young man went over to
"The old Jady was very ungrateful,
for she rose in her might and cried:

heart I' " San Francisco Examiner.
