Oft AW A, lll-i Jline 19.—The little Village of Utica, eight allies west of this city, came within a half's breadth of being wiped out of existence Thursday; Shortly before noon two heavy black clouds met almost Over the <Sen» ter of the village. There was a rush which was followed a few moments later by a terrific cloudburst. Torrents of water came rushing down over the 'north bluff, the gutters filled with water, anil In less than half aii hour the principal streets of the town were flooded to a depth of 2J4 feet. During all this time the rain fell tn sheets. Business men and people living on the ground floors moved their stocks, household furniture, etc., to the second story of their stores and dwellings. The Rock Island road runs through the village at the north, and twenty minutes after the storm burst the tracks were all washed away. The torrent of water that rushed over the north bluff carried with it thousands of tons of sand, and at 1 o'clock there were fully 4 feet of sand on the tracks. The excitement and anguish of the fleeing, panic-stricken villagers was terrible in the extreme. Many of- them believed their last day had come. Mothers hugged their children to their breasts and • prayed for deliverance. Others, not entirely paralyzed with fear, devoted themselves to saving their property from ruin. Merchants 'removed their goods to upper floors. Small boats were pressed into service and persons imprisoned by the water were removed to places of r safety. Within a few minutes of the cloudburst the water was fully feet deep in the streets. 11 began receding at 2 o'clock, when the great damage to property could be discerned. Sidewalks, fences and bridges were washed away; dwellings anc places of business were partially ruined and household goods on the lower floors were rendered worthless. In the maim factviring portion of the place the dam age was great. The fires in the kilns o: the Utica fire-brick works were put oul and the contents ruined and the kiln; badly damaged.

PEOIUA, 111., June 19.—The storm of a few days ago, which did such extensive damage in East Peoria, was nothing compared with the one of Thursday nigh*;. This was a terror which will never be forgotten by people living between here and Farindale. The early part of the night was full of electricity, which played fantastic freaks up to about 11:80 o'c!6ck, when the rain began. It did not seem to be rain but a succession of cloxidbursts ac- | companied by the most fearful thunder and sharpest lightning 1 . At Hilton, just across the river, in a few minutes the first stories of the buildings were full of water and the people were compelled to flee to the heighto, where many of them passed he night, some escaping only in their night clothes. There was not time in ome instances to release horses from stables and many were drowned. Numbers of cattle and hogs shared a similar ! ate. Five bridges were carried away n the immediate vicinity of Hilton. The water in houses at Farmdale, 7 miles east, rose to a depth of 8 feet, and the people narrowly escaped drown- ng. Herds of cattle, horses, hogs and chickens were swept away, and the crops of farmers over a .arge tract of land in the valley were utterly ruined. The only fatality reported was in the Copperas creek val- .ey, just across the line in Fulton county. A family named Gray had a cabin in the valley, and when the flood left the banks of Copperas creek and rushed down the valley the inmates grew alarmed. The father took his three boys and started to the hills, while the mother refused to leave the house. When half way across the valley a floating log struck Gray and stunned him. The rushing water drowned the boys (aged 13, 8 and 5) and he narrowly escaped by clinging to the log. His wife got on the roof of the house and was rescued during the afternoon. The damage to bridges, railroad tracks and crops will reach thousands of dollars, NELIGH, Neb., June 19.—Wednesday the heaviest rainfall ever experienced within twenty-eight years in Nebraska fell her,e.

Peterson returned to town for assistance and a search body accompanied Sheriff Haverland to the scene and found Lorenson's body lodged against a wire fence one-half mile below. TILOEN, Neb., June 19.-—Three children living in Erne rick township, about 15 miles southeast of here, were drowned Wednesday night during tbe storm while trying to reach the house from school.
