THE WIND'S FURY Storm Does fluch Damage in all Directions. : Freight Cars Blockade the Panhandle at Thornhope,. ; Story of the Wreck Caused in the City and "Country. | The storm which visited Log.'insport yesterday evening was wklespread'ajid' It made Its force felt more partlculaifly to the north of us. The report rcachbd' this city early in tlie evening that.the town of North Judson, at.<he" crossing' of tho C. & A. aucl I. I. & I. roads with the Panhandle, north of Winainac, hid ; been wrecked by a tornado. There, was no way by which the rumor .could, Ipe verified, as every wire leading, oijt of the city north was down and the bi>erji-' ; tors n.t the dispatcher's office co'uliVsrp no farther'out than Thoruhopo. ' Shortly after 7 o'clock a message wijs received from Thornhope stating that a number of'freight cars on the sldj?- track at that station :had been blown onto the main track, forming,a block- adj. The wrecking train was .limned!-' ately ordered out and started out of tho Fourth street station about p o'clock for tho scene of the trouble. .,&' Journal reporter was permitted to.ac- company the wrecking crew anil learned the following facts regardinp the wreck. Shortly after the.storm' had struck the station at Thornhope, a farmer's boy named James I-Tat.fieM discovered a number of freight cars lying across the main track. He kne~\y that the passenger train from Chicago, due here at 7:20, would ' soon an-iyo there, and ran to the station where lie procured a lantern, and when the train], in charge of Conductor Joe Kiiincy. of this city, hove in sight, he flagged th<? euginomnu and the train was. stopped? just in time to avert a serious wreck. ; ! After the wreck train arrived at the scene of the trouble, the crow went at the overturned freight cars 1 and after four hours of hard work the roniii track was cleared and the train, duo here at 7:20, pulled in at 2 o'clock this morning. From the trainmen of No; 4, the belated train, It was learned that the story of the destruction of the town Children's Straw Hats worth Up to $1.50 Men's Straw Hats worth up to $2.00 IF YOU READ THIS AD. $2.48 worth $5.00, Men's and Women's Finest Tan Shoes, Also Ladies' Patent leather Dress Shoes.

The wind did some damage there, but noth- ng of consequence was-deslroyed..Thei greatest damage is to the telegraph lines. Tho trainmen report-the poles' lying flat on the ground for a stretch ; of two miles north of Thornhope. Com-, munlcatlon with Chicago by wire is' consequently cut off until the lines can ; jo repaired. • ! 'Ell Sophel, one of the wrecking crew,i was painfully,' though not seriously/ injured by tlie slipping of a derrick; chain. - - ' ; IN THE CITY. and'scurried for shelter. The advance guard of the storm shot through tho •air with increilitablc swiftness ami before anyone realized it, the wind was touring through ihe streets at a tor- rilic. rate, picking up everything in its 'path that was not securely fastened dowii and hurling it along In clouds of dust that gr.ve a serious aspect to the niomcnt.. The general direction of the w'in'd was slightly north of west; that In to say it blow to "the cast with ii . southerly, tendency. The blow lusted about live minutes and then came a torrent of rain which fairly Eclipsed the downpour of the morning. The storm came on so sud .dimly that many people were caugu ,-i.far from, shelter and in consequence were drenched to the skin. Lognusport has been cxtremelj fortunate in escaping the consequence* of heavy' wind storms such as that o last evening. Situated as she is, snr Winded by hills'ou almost every side the tornados which on the open, levc coymtry.loa.ve destruction in their path have never stooped to destroy the fait city in the valley and her people are grateful that this is so. The freaks of the.wind are many, however. a\c Olio of those; peculiar-shaped clouds ,whjch an old resident described as a I'sly coon, shaped like a funeral," may yet 'drop the smaller end of the fun uel into the valley of the- Wabash am' 'bring a full realization of tho horrors of'the tornado infested West.

It is stated by those who have noted the stage of the river throughout the season, that the water has not been so high this year as it: was at S o'clock last night, nnd the swelling flood was still raising on the banks rapidly. At midnight tho Wabash was still rising, and an old inhabitant said that if it did not fall be fore morning, the water would hide the Taber dam from sight. This stage o£ water is rarely obtained in the Wabash. The llooil of yesterday evening will help keep the rivers rising, and much damage will result to corn growing iu low-lying bottom fields. There was an unusual amount of driftwood floating in the Wabash throughout the night, which is always a good indication of a rising stream. Immense trees were afloat, and when they struck the piers of the old Third street bridge.the structure trembled from tho shock. . NEVER CUTS THE PERFORMANCE. It is the 1 custom with many shows to cut the night performance, that is. omit many of the acts, in order to get through early and hasten the tearing down and departure for the nest town. The Great Wallace Show guarantees never to do this. Mr. Wallace is a roost conscientious showman; he as : sorts that money received at night is worth as much on tlie dollar as the day money, and his patrons are eu- titled-to just as much for it; he maintains that he has no right to give them any less. Plenty of men are employed to tear down rapidly enough when the show is out, without having to pull- the canvas down on the heads of the spectators. At Logausport Monday, August 20th. A MERCHANT'S VIEW OF IT. Said a well-known dry goods mer-' chant recently: "We buy today sis: times as many imported woolens and prints as we did in 1802; that means that when six men had work in 1S92, only one man has work, now, and that one American is working on oue- : . third less money. That is what has become of the markets of our own farmers. Why sir, I can show you many families, in Logansport who are living on less than they threw out of their back doors in 1S92." ^ The remedy is plain; re-enact a pro? tective tariff, start our own .mills and factories; and the laboring men can then.get the money to buy the farm and other products.

With flies by day and mosquitoes by-night, life for both man and beast has been almost unbearable. The stock especially has suffered a living death. While man could hide himself away from these murderous pests—behind screens or in dark rooms—the poor horse must stand tied to a rack, swelter In Die heat and tamp and fret himself into a foam fighting liies.
