The canning of fraita and vege-

per cent of these canned goods are
marketed east of the Rocky Moun-
tains, not a few of them being sold
for direct export to Europe.
The Austin Statesman says:
<'The Attorney General's ruling in
regard to tbe removal of screens
from saloons under tbe new law is
very sweeping, and calls lor a com-

parts of the screen*. This is posei-
OODS IN NORTH TEXAS,
On Monday, at 8 o'clock in the
evening, it commenced raining at
Waxahachic and continued for
about twelve hours, the water fall-
ing at times in almost solid sheets,
raising all the creeks and branches
out of their banks and flooding the
valleys, drowning a large number
of horses, mules and cattle. Sever-
al railroad men camped at Bullard's
park with difficulty escaped the
angry waters, although they lost
most ol their camp equippage and
several fine mules. Dead stock,
vechicles, lumber of buildings and
bridges, household furniture, cot-
ton bales and other property are
scattered along the creeks for
miles. Railroad bridges on both
sides ot town were washed away
and a large quantity of railroad
track washed up.
At Valley Mills, in Bosque coun-
ty, the rain was the heaviest
since May, 1885, tbe rainfall being
nine inches; tbe Bosque river was
one mile wide—rising thirty feet
in four hours. Hundreds of acres
of corn and cotton were destroyed
and a number ol bridges were
At Cleburne, in Johnson county,
the suffering was ever greater
Rain poured down in torrents for
four hours, raising the creeks so
rapidly that bouses were washed
away before they could bo vacated
by their occupants. Bill Schmidt,
bis wife and seven little children,
were all lost in the flood, being
washed down in the bouse occu-
pied. The corpse of Schmidt,
wife and three of his children hare
been found. It is said that nine,
and possibly eleven lives were
lost. Crops are tearfully damaged.
At Fort Worth, the river rose
out of its banks and spreaded over
the low grounds, near the city;
smrll shanties at the foot of the
bluffs were submerged, the occu-
pants barely having time to re-
move their plunder.
At Waco the Brazos river was
reported as rising rapidly and
fears were entertained that East
Waco would be inundated. At
Hico,in Hamilton county, the rain
descended in torrants and washed
up two miles of track on the Cen-
