MARGARET E. COLES, Homeopathic Physieian and Surgeon. Office and residence in Boston Block, ALGONA, IOWA. Sunday night a heavy wind passed over the north end of the county. The chief damage was done near Swea City and in Gernaanla. As far south as Burt an empty box car was blown from the track, hut the farms about did not suffer much damage. The storm was worst in Germanla, where many buildings wore blown down, among them all of B. F. Smith's barns. Fortunately none of his line horses were killed. A big barn belonging to Tlios. F. Cooke just out of Swoa City was carried 40 feet and one wing torn down. It was a very severe storm, evidently in places a twister. A GRAPHIC DESCRIPTION. Following are several paragraphs from a letter written by Miss Lu. R, Smith, who teaches in Gormanla, to her father. It gives a lively picture of a storm scene: GERMANIA, Iowa,—I have boon In a cyclone at last and cannot say I care to have it repeated. It struck Germania at 3 o'clock this morning, and was so sudden that we hud no time to dress but rushed about the house in our night clothes. We didn't go down cellar for It Is full of water, and besides the window was open. It is only 4:30 now, but I am go- Ing to write you a little, as you will probably hear of the storm and wonder if I am all right. Of course I know very little of it yet, but Mr, Mathis is out investigating. One house just a little ways from us is completely gone. Cannote'ven see aboard it was made of. The lady was hurt some. I don't know how badly. Our closet is just as close to the parlor window as possible, and smashed to pieces. The steps from our front door are pulled off and thrown over, and by the looks of the brick and by the sound of it while falling I should judge there is very little chimney left on our place. The barns around hero are completely demoralized, and horses are straying around loose. Mr. Smith's place (B. F.'s) is a sight from here. It looks as though his large barns were all gone, and we can hear him hallowing. Mr. M. has gone up there and I will add a little when he gets home. Now that is just around here, but about the rest of the town I can not tell; people are yelling and talking excitedly. But it was a twister, for our boiler, which was full of water south of the house, Is emptied of its contents and well banged up, lying way north of the house, and the out buildings are blown south. It sounded awful, While I am writing I can see people coming from their caves and it looks kind of comical. I hope you had no hard storm in Algona. Mr. M. has just returned and soys B. F.'s barns and coal house, etc., are all blown to pieces, but no horses are hurt. Mr. Meyers' kitchen is also blown off the house and smashed up. I have just been to see the wreck, and I never saw such a sight in my life. It's a mystery to me how on earth those people ever got out without being killed. They were all pinned down excepting one girl, and she helped the rest out. Damage at Swoa City. Telephone advices from Swea City indicate that all the barns in a wide circle of country are torn down or dam" aged, also windmills, In town the Dye, Bromark and Barber barns are destroyed. A few miles north of town a big barn was blown down and a horse killed. The only house reported destroyed is Chas. McAdams,' He reached the cellar, but his wife was caught up stairs and blown away but not seriously injured. Southwest a school house was blown away and cut off the telephone wires. At Bancroft no damage is reported. It is rumored that the station at the railway crossing was destroyed but it seems to be unfounded. The telephone wires are not in working order to Germania. Monday Night's Storm. Monday night again everybody noticed the heavy clouds to the north. The following telegrams tell the story: Minneapolis, Minn., June 12.—One of the most severe storm that ever passed over Minneapolis prevailed here hetween 5 and 7 o'clock. For fully an hour midnight darkness fell over the city and the sky had all the appearance of a tornado. There was very little wind, however, but an immense volume of water fell, the gauge showing 2.34 inches. So far as learned little damage other than the flooding of basements and floating of pavements resulted from the storm. Bridge square in the lower part of the city was afloat for a time and was passable only in boats. The storm came from the south. Minneapolis, Minn,, June 12.—There are repeated rumors that the tornado at New Richmond, Wis., tonight has killed 250 persons. The news has not yet been confirmed. The wires have been working badly, but it may be the country offices are simply closed for the night. The storm split beyond the twin cities, the dangerous part going north and east, over Hudson and New Richmond, The other division of the storm did a little damage near Glencoe and points southeast of there.
