[Sp'.'uhil to Mliinoiipolls Tlmu.s..] Sioux City, lovvitj May 4.—The wind storm which passed over northwestern Iowa and southeastern South Dakota late yesterday afternoon left death and destruction in its path. The property loss was immense, but the loss of life can as yet only be estimated. This storm, widespread as it was, appears to have been a true cyclone in places and in other parts of its territory partook more ot the nature of a tornado, and in others, even where the damage was considerable, was not more than a gale of wind, with severe hail and rain. The severest cyclone bad its course for 12 or 15 miles in Sioux county; the same storm, or another one, touched at Sibley, considerably further north, and did great damage there. In South Dakota, even where there was great destruction, there appears to have been no real cyclone, with the swirling, funnel-shaped clouds. Sioux county's cyclone seems to have originated near Ireton and to have traveled northeast to a point on the Sioux City & Northern road, H miles north of Sioux Center. Then it took a course of an enlongated letter "S," crossing the track twice, and for two miles .it seems to have formed straight up the track o£ this railway. It struck the town ot of. ; ]?erkins fiotn the southwest and those Syho saw it there believe i rose or was dissipated at that point but it is possible the same awful cloud continued its tortuous rourse and af terwards struck Sibley. From Siouj Center and other places in Sioux conn ty estimates come that no less than 2( have been killed and two and three times as many injured.

The daily average temperature ranged ten to, twelve degrees above the normal, and every district reports rainfall from one to three inches. . All crops have received great benefit f rum this excess of heat and moisture. Corn planting has been delayed by the showers but it is well advanced in all parts of the state. In the early planted .fields corn is well started, showing a fine stand and in some sections the work of cultivation is begun. All reports indicate a considerable increase Of corn acreage. ' In some sections cut and wire worms have begun their ravages at an unusually early, and in a small area chinch bugs are reported at work in the rye fields. All small grain crops are unusually promising. Pastures and meadows show vigorous growth, wherever the plants have not been winter-killed or burnedout by the drouth. All the forces of nature seem to be doing their best to repair the damages of the past year, The windstorms on May 3d in the northwest district developed local tornadoes, with destruction to life and buildings, No material damage to crops reported, MERITS OF TILE DRAINAGE.
