B. Swarner, 147 Fourteenth street northwest, Monday after he Sad spent several hours Sunday in the storm area. nimtv "The destruction of the flimsy summer cottages and resorts at Terrace Park is of little significance when it is compared to the utter annihilation of the houses, farm buildings, trees and fences, all permanent, substantial objects, in the affected areas." Mr. Swarner, Mason City businessman spent his youth on a farm just a few miles southwest of Milford, and has relatives residing on farms in that neighborhood at the present time. Top Soil Gone. "Fields which had been plowed within two or three days before the storm, resembled hard-surfaced tennis courts after the wind had ray- ged them," Mr.. Swarner said. None of the top-soil was left." Some of the worst damage was inflicted on and near the farm of Mr. Swarner's brother-in-law, B. G. Wilson, who lives eight miles southwest of Milford. ' On an adjoining farm where 10O head of cattle had been fed and prepared for the market, 62 were either lestroyed or sold at salvage prices, Ai. Swarn'er learned. "Woven wire fences were uprooted and carried away by the terrific force. A tile silo was ground to dust Trees were stripped bare of branches, leaving only the trunks. A radio cabinet was found near a home, but the works which it had enclosed were nowhere in sight. Watch Disappeared. 'One man had a watch with a strap attached in the pocket in the bib of his overalls when the storm broke. The man was unharmed, but his watch and most of the strap disappeared during the height of the wind. "One woman who had watchec from a storm cellar as her home was reduced to a shambles by the wind, realized later that she had left iier watch and a diamond ring in a room on the first floor of the house. Not a wall of the house was standing ing, but the flooring of the first floor, which also provided a ceiling for the basement, was in perfect condition and remained as it had been before the storm. The woman found the watch and ring lying on the floor in the basement." Mr. Swarner told of other freak happenings which, occurred during the ten minutes when the wind was at its peak.
