Dr. Joseph Weigh the well known
German physician, died at his real
dence in Kenwood Monday morning,
April JO, 1900 at 4 o'clock, aged about
j')3 years. He died from a couipiica-

cold settling on hie lungs about two
months ago; the disease is known as
the paralysis of iarynlx and eppOli-
The deceased leaves a wife ;.nd
three young daughteis, aged from
ten to live years, in not the best of
circumstances, yet he owned some
property and a life insurance of
$2,000 in the mutual insurance fund
of the Catholic Knights of America.
Everything known in the practice of
medicine was applied lor the reiief of
Dr. Weigl, but without avail. He was
attended by Doctors Champion, Mc-
Kenzie, Mayberry, and Dr. Dorsey, of
Wichita. Dr. Weigl was a devout
member of the Catholic church and
a good citizen well respected by all.
The floral tributes to the bier of
the deceased will be a cross trimmed
in beautiful flowers from the mem-
bers of the Catholic church and a
floral harp from the Central Medical
Association. The funeral will occur
from the late home of the deceased

to the soul and ashes of a valuable
and useful citizen.
The suit for damages for the swiped
affections of a truent husband, where-
in Mrs. Mosier was plaintiff and Mrs.
Hewitt defendent, was ended Satur-
day evening. The jury returned a
verdict in favor of the defendent, be
l'.eving that the affections of Mr. Mc-
sier was not worth $1,000 or any other
amount. Scarcely any jury on earth
has ever brought in a verdict of
guilty in such cases. Men always
stand together in trying times.
The adjourned session of the Dis-

Once. The strength of the wind
At such times is greater than 1
tiould have thought possible. It
whirls ships helplessly adrift from th
firmest moorings, and with nuddea
blast takes away the corners of housel

During the height of tne gale j
►esidents for the most part shut tbem- j
selves closely In their houses, carefully
securing their doors and windows, and
bo remain with constant apprehension
and dread, lest tho dwelling should be
swept away and themselves be en
tombed in tho rains.
Once, while the storm was at its
worst, I ventured 3<rw a to tbe IVaya
to see the crowd of Chinese boats thai
had been blown Inshore and piled up
In a mass of wreck just below the city.
The sky was of dark leaden color and

of vapor across the scene, through
which the dismantled ships were dimly
ijescried drifting from their moorings.

granite blocks had been washed in upoa
t^e road. Jjalf-blinded by the waves
e.s they leapt over road and dashed la
sagry foam against the houses, and
buffeted by tho wind, I made slow
headway to the east end of the settl®
ment, where a number of foreigner®
