EARTHQUAKE IN DAKOTA

Hurley, S.D., Sept. 16--- An earthquake of unusual strength and duration aroused the people here at 4 o'clock this morning.
It caused houses to tremble and dishes to rattle on the shelves for about 30 seconds. It seemed to travel eastward.
In Yankton the earthquake shock here was the most severe ever felt in this section, and lasted nearly a minute. The guests in the Pierce Hotel were awakened by the swaying of the building and those on the third floor left their rooms in alarm. All neighboring towns report the shock.

CONCERNING THE MAN IN MARS

Chicago, Oct. 16--- Professor Barnard, the astronomer and former head of the Lick Observatory at Mount Hamilton, Cal., arrived in Chicago yesterday to assume his position as head of the astronomical department of the University of Chicago.

When questioned regarding the possibilities of the great Yerkes telescope and advantages or disadvantages of its location at Lake Geneva, the professor was inclined to be conservative in his remarks.
"Let us dismiss the sensational ideas concerning the possibilities of a new and great telescope so commonly expressed, and stick to the facts." he said.

"In the first place, as to the moon, no telescope will ever be built that will give us much additional information about it. No telescope, no matter how powerful it may be, will ever show the moon clearly at an apparently closer range than 100 to 150 miles, as seen by the naked eye."

"In regard to the statement made by one of the newspapers not long ago, that one important thing the 40-inch telescope was expected to do was to clear up the mystery of the "signal lights" discovered upon Mars with the great Lick telescope, and which were supposed to be attempts on the part of the inhabitants of Mars to open up communication with the people on Earth."

"This object must fail utterly when it is known no such "signal lights" were ever seen upon Mars with the Lick telescope but, in all probabilities, were seen only by an expert and keen-sighted newspaper man. The fact is, the man of Mars and his signals must be forever undiscovered."

"We expect to gain some knowledge in the study of the surfaces of Uranus and Neptune, and in the study of the double stars and the satellites of the different planets. There are still unsolved problems concerning fixed stars, revolving binary stars and solar prominences."

MYSTERIOUS VISITORS PUZZLE INDIANA FARMERS

Noblesville, Ind., Dec. 6--- Farmers living along White River, above and below this city, are very much exorcised over strange noises heard in the woods at night and the mysterious flitting of shadowy forms along the river's edge.

A dozen or more campfires were found near the Jones farm in the morning, and numerous odd footprints were discernible in the soft earth. There are no signs of cooking utensils or sapping outfits to indicate the character of the visitors.

A few nights ago while Miss Florence Briggs was driving from a church social she saw a single file of men going down the road. Their peculiar manner of walking, each stepping over the ground with a perfectly flat tread, attracted her attention.
All were silent, until the buggy was close upon them, when, with a chorus of "ughs" the weird company seemed to be swallowed up by the earth.

It is the fishermen who bring to town the most extravagant stories of these wanderers. Hiram Rounmous, while strolling along the shallow waters, two miles above Allisonville, says he saw several canoes dart across the stream just ahead of him in so powerful a manner that they moved faster than a small steamboat.

He saw no one in these canoes, but thinks the men were lying in the bottom. He also speaks of the same peculiar grunts which Miss Briggs describes. When he came to the place where the mysterious figures crossed he found the channel so shallow that he had to make portage for his own boat, and he wonders how the shadowy canoes could have crossed.

A member of the Indianapolis Aquatic Club stopped at Mrs. Hop's cottage at Allisonville for supper one night recently, and as he went down the road to the river to take his canoe back to the Broad Ripple he was pounced upon by several of these mysterious men, who jumped out from the shadows of the roadway.
The people of Allisonville heard his cry for help, and when they went down to the river they saw the little canoe, but he was not in sight. It is presumed that he was kidnapped, as nothing has been heard from him.

The banks of White River where these happenings are mystifying the farmers are high and covered with trees and a thick undergrowth. The community is much excited, and cannot account for the appearance of the band in that vicinity, as there are no wagons or horses to indicate gypsies.



(No horses or wagons? To me what they were describing sounds like ancient Indians.
Could they have encountered a ghost tribe? )
