DALLAS, Tex., May 15,—A special to The News from Sherman, Tex,, says : Just a few minutes before 5 o'clock a cyclone, not exceeding two blocks in width but carrying widspread destruction and death, swept through the western half of the city. The number of fatalities is not definitely known. The list of missing is large and includes a great many children and it is quite probable that the most of them are dead. It is very conservative to estimate that the list of fatalities will reach 60, while the injured will reach at least 100. WORSE THAN SUPPOSED. Death List From the Texns Cyclone Grows. SHERMAN, Tex., May 16.—The list of identified dead from the terrible cyclone foots up 80 persons, the greater portion of Avhom were white. There is still much surrounding territory from which no reports have been received. It is estimated SO or 30 bodies are yet imrocovercd, but several hundred' men are searching the fields, digging up the debris and dragging the creeks. The details of the storm grow more horrible as they are made fully known. Bodies have been decapitated, limbs torn off, eyes gouged out and lying on cheeks, fingers and toes cut off clean as with a knife, hair pulled out, great slivers of wood sticking through limbs, noses flattened in, skulls crushed and brains scooped out. Some of the victims are lying in the morgue with necks broken, others are mutilated horribly. Some are not broken or bruised at all, but apparently lie peacefully and serene in death. Many private homes are used as hospitals. Ladies of the city arc doing all in their power to save and succor the wounded, caring for and dressing the dead. The people are greatly excited. They view the. dark skies and threatening clouds with apprehension. The work of caring for the wounded still con- rinues. Many bodies are being brought in hourly. The total of dead will reach 120, and tho wounded will aggregate 100. EIGHT DEAD AT HOWE. J CHICAGO, ILL, 3 fl!?w?wwtmw?????wwmf?
