Hknnksky, O. T., May 17.—[Special|

Grand Army encampment which con-

Besides her generous groves, the King-
Usher county fair grounds adjoining
the city lias a large amphitheater,

Cool Weather Predicted f. r the latter
Portion of Muy.
St. Joseph, Mo , May 17.—My last
bulletin gave forecasts of the storm
waves to cross the continent from loth
to 14th and l.* th to lttth.
The next disturbance will reach the
Pacitic coast about 'JOtli, cross the west
of Rockies country by close of - 1st,
great central valleys 2-d to 'Jltli, east-
ern states 25th.
Warm wave will cross the wes*, of
Rockies country about 20tli, great cen-
tral valleys ','id, eastern states 24th.
Cool wave will cross the west of Rock-
ies country about 23d, gruat central
valleys 26th, eastern states 27th.
These disturbance* will cover one of
the hot periods of the month and will
be followed by one of the greatest
falls in temperature that will occur in
May. Very cool weather may be ex-
pected immediately preceding this
The storms will develop increased j
energy not far from May 23d to 24th, j
and the weather about this time will
go to extremes not usual for this gen-
erally quiet month. Temperature of
the week ending May 1 5th will aver-
age below and raiufall above normal.
This applies to the whole country as
an average. In drouth districts tem-
perature will be above and rainfall
below normal, while in the rain belts
temperature will be much below and
rain above the normal.
The national weather bureau crop
report for April 20th shows a deficien-
cy of rainfall in the corn anil oats belt
at fourteen weather bureau stations
and an excess at twelve. The princi-
pal deficiencies in inches were at Chi-
cago, I.IS, Duluth 1.44, St. Paul
Springfield, Mo., 1 14, Cleveland, Ohio
.60. The principal exqesses were Des
Moines 4 70, Davenport 1.40, Sioux
City 1.35. Kansas City and Columbia,
Mo., had small deficiencies. Very lit-
tle rain fell in the corn beltduring the
last few days of April and when the
last week of the month is placed in
I lie calculations about two-thirds of
the weather bureau stations will show
a deficiency of rain for April and one-
third an excess.
Corn and oats are several cents
higher than at the close of March and
altogether, while the forecast for
April rainfall in the north has not
proved to be as great a success as
might be desired these facts show that
it was not a failure. For the southern
states the forecast was a general suc-
cess, except a few localities.

Mrs. Watts' Body Found In the C imarron
hlver, Bmled In I lie Maud
While playing along the bank of 11
the Cimarron river yesterday, Mr.
May's boys discovered a body buried!
in the sand and water, only the feet I
ai d a small portion of the body being j
in view. The city authorities were at j
once notified and Mayor Berkey and
Murshal Baxter were soon taking steps :
to get the body out of the water. It j
was lirst thought to be the body of j
Mrs. Francis Moore, but when finally j
dug out of the sand was found to be |
Mrs. Watts. The body was put in a |
colli 11 and buried in Fairview ceme-
! tery, no inquest being held.
Mrs. Watts lived at the foot of liar- j
I rison avenue, on the east bank of the
Cottonwood. When the Hood came
j her husband succeeded in getting into ,
| a tree, bat Mrs Watts was overtaken j
before she could reach a place of safety
| Her body had Heated, or been washed |
by the current, about three miles front j
where she was drowned. Until the
' raise of the Cimarron last week, it j
large sand bar extended one hundred
feet out into the river. During the
raise the bar was washed away and
until yesterday the water was too high
i to make any investigation. The body ||
| had been i the water eighteen days Ij
j and was bloated almost beyond re cog- j
' Two more are known to be missing
Yinie Dabney, a little cripple boy, and ;
; Mrs Francis Moore.

j the one that buys Dr. Pierce's Pitas-
1 ant Pellets. That is what you g('1
i with them: An absolute and perma-
nent cure for Constipation, Indiges-
tion, Uilioua Attacks, Sick and Bilious
