Houses and Batns Reduced to Kindling v Wood and Scatteted for Miles— \_ ' > \ Damage is Enormous, First Cyclone that Ever Struck tills County—List of the injured— The Storm Blsejvhere. A cyclone swept across Kossuth coun ty from west to east Friday evening at 8 o'clock, about 31 miles north of Algona. It entered the county in Lotts •Greek township and going slightly to the north crossed the Black Cat creek • to the river, and then carried destruction along Plum creek, passing over the county line a little north of the Wm. Ward farm. It covered a territory about a mile wide, demolishing barns, mills, and stacks. In its path it destroyed everything. The list of dead and wounded is as follows: The killed are: ROBERT STEPHENSON, skull crushed; • • died in a few hours. GEO. HOTjMAN'S two children. MRS. GEO. BOEVERS. GEO. BOEVERS' child. MR. DINGMAN. A. ROCKOW'S child. WM. SCHWEPPE and two children. MR. EDENS' child. THOS. TWEED'S two children. THOS. TWEED'S mother. ... A. J. TWEED'S child. FRED. FRENCH'S two children.

TWEED, both arms broken. Miss WELCH, cannot recover. The storm came without warning. The breaking of windows was the first intimation people had of anything to be feared. Some reached their cellars, some were caught at the cellar door. At Algona the wind was from the south. North of the track of the storm the wind was. from the north. From both directions it sucked the air into its vortex. In places it struck with incredible fury, and in others the escape of buildings and people is almost miraculous. It took a course no one would have believed possible through wooded creek valleys and across the Des Moines. Some report noticing a roaring sound, but those in the path of it say they did not notice it. The lightning was exceedingly brilliant, but the lack of thunder or any roar was so conspicuous as to excite attention in Algona, At Geo, Boevers' farm it struck the first of the places demolished near Algona. Mr. Boevers was just getting his wife and two little ones to the cellar door wben the building went. His house was new this yeari one of the best farm houses in the county, but it ' crushed like an egg shell, and in a few moments the passer by might never suspect that a house had been there. The boards were strung 60 rods across the adjoining field. Mr. Boevers was unhurt, but one child was picked up dead, Mrs, Boevers died soon after, and onechil§ lived on with a fractured skull. North of them a half mile "'0,' Dau's barn was set off the foundation, and bis cribs and windmill destroyed, South of them Jjje. farms of W. F. Jenkinson. Herb, Bailey, C. D. Ward, and A. D. Bavr were all damaged, Mr, Jenkinson's bo us e being turned quartering. From Boevers' across to Myron Sohenok'a the field was strewn with hold articles in the cellar Were as undisturbed as though nothing bad hap' pened. A -quarter of a mile beyond Schenckjs the school bouse west so that not a trace is left Of It. At Jos. Thompson's the family bad gotten down cellar, but hefe the wind did not demolish the bouse completely. It broke in all tbe* windows and by a curious freak took off the wall paper and plaster of every room. Every picture frame was broken and the furniture Was bioWtt about in various odd Ways. The building is a complete wreck. Across the road the big barn was smashed flat. Five horses were pinned to the ground and were not released Un' til 2 o'clock, when all we re able to walk, The beautiful grove on the >Black Cat at this point was riddled. The old Stowe building north of , Thompson's was ruined, and at Michael Rtebhoff's everything was torn down but the house. At C. Byson's the old Moore log cabin, built 31 years ago, was destroyed and one log smashed through a new wagon, but Mr. Byson's new house was not hurt. South as far as W, F. Hoflus' and even as far as J. B. Hofius' stacks and mills suffered. The wind did not do much damage in Crossing the river valley. The Dr. Ensign farm was almost untouched, as were also the rail way bridge and wagon bridge. But a few rods north of both the new waste bridge lately built was removed as though there had never been one. Across the river the wind hit the wooded bluff just north of Daniel Rice's barns, and the trees look like corn stalks that have been gone over with a breaker. It took down R. M. Gardner's barn, cribs, and mill, but at Mr. Rice's did its chief damage. Everything but his house was wrecked, and part of the roof of that was ripped up. The storm performed curious freaks here. An elm 12 inches through was broken off in front of the house, but the windows behind it wore not broken. A wagon box with a tight-fitting top box was picked up and the top box was found five rods to the west while the box Itself was carried as far to the north. Passing through the timber the wind caught the buildings at S. G. house, and fttl tvere blown about but hole killed outfight. Mh Baf-rick had his head badly cut, MfB, fiafrlck was struck by a stove In tbe abddmen and by something in the back and was paralysed from the hips down. Mr. Barrick's boy was out on the head. Mr. Lee had bis face skinned, and Mrs. Lee bad her nose split open by a bdard as cleanly as thbugb a Surgeon's knife had done it. tfhe doctors took a piece of the Wood out from the bottom of the wound, A daughter 15 yeftrs old had her scalp torn in a v shape about three inches, one boy was hit on the side of tbe head and remained Unconscious, two other daughters had their faces scratched, and two were not hurt, A hired man was hurt, in the back. The wind left nothing for Mr< Barrick but swept his place clean. The wounded, as soon as they were found, were taken to the old Kargleder farm, where the front end of the big new barn was torn out and all the cribs and sheds were carried away, and were cared for there, West of them the home of Robt. Stephenson was the fii-st in the county to be wiped out, and his death was the first caused on this side of the line. Mrs, Stephenson says that the last she saw he was holding the door. When found his head was cut in the back and he .died the day following. His farm was swept clean. It is one of the old places in that part of the county. NOTES OF THIS STORM.

The two bijgr PJQ thf plfcc.e west of tbj house to the ground. At bpth the Mayne's and Harrison Warner's, but at G. .W; Hopkins', right east of Rice's, not even the wind mill was hurt, while north at A. L. Seeley's and Fred Miller's no damage was done. The' next place was P. T.. Ferguson's,, and here the damage was confined to moving the barn a foot off the foundation, blowing down trees, fences, and • stacks. But two miles east a terrible scene was witnessed at M. W. Ferguson's. Here only the remains of a willow hedge testify that the place was ever inhabited. His house was scattered for half a mile through the corn field. His own escape was miraculous. With his wife and baby he was carried 20 rods, part way through the willows over rough ground. When the storm was by he found himself holding his wife, both unhurt, and the baby on a piece of the house roof near by, crying, but also unhurt. He gathered all that was left of his fine farm outfit into a wagon box. A little east of him the storm struck Geo. Holinan's, and here again it simply swept the ground.. The roof of the house went first, and George and wife and two children went out over the side wall. They were carried well out into the field, One child was picked up dead, and one had a nail stuck in the skull. No trace of a house is to be seen. South of this on the old M, L. Clarke farm Mrs, Peter Peterson had her skull broken so that a piece protruded, and until late Saturday morning she had no medical aid, as all the doctors had been called to other places. It was only by going to Mr, Pau's that a doctor was secured for the Holman child. And on the south side of Plum creek the storm hit Pat Zain's, taking his wind mill, tower and all, bulging out the side of one big barn und unroofing part of his house, la this five or- six miles the damage to property is immense, though strangely enough stock suffered but little. One steer killed at Holman's is all that is known of. The loss of feed is more serious, The hay stacks all along were ruined, The loose bay was scattered everywhere and wire fences were filled with it. Many hundreds of tons are lost, and this year that is very serious, The buildings destroyed were among the.best in. the county, Probably but little if any insurance . will be received, as no one seems to have carried tornado policies. Wind mills went Showing tlint the Wind. Performed Some Curious Freaks. The wind performed many curious freaks along its course. At the Kargleder place an iron pump and the iron tubing were taken out of the well, and here also a-granary full of wheat was left untouched. At Barrick's a turkey was stripped of feathers, and over east at Holman's a rooster was trying to crow Saturday morning with his feathers plucked. At Boever's thq,re- porter found a duck which had lain all night with a heavy beam on its head, and which was able to open one eye and quack when it was released. A turkey with both eyes out, and a pig at Jos. Thompson's with a pine stick in its shoulder several inches are reported. down every wbere, and they alone will foot up into the thousands of dollars. West of the Boevers' farm the first place demolished was Fred, Pompe's. Everything was destroyed, and Mrs, Pompe, who is a large, fleshy woman, and five little girls bad a miraculous escape. The bouse tumbled down about their ears, but the timbers so fell that a little space a few feet in dimensions was left and Jn this they were buddled, After they were taken out no one cowld believe that they bad been in eo small"a space. Mr, Porape and the other children bad been in town to,the fair, and had not gone bone a,ud §Q escaped. On the D«ra.nt farm Caj. Barriok 304 family lived, and with them Obas, Lee and family the, r< he on tbeiP w»y bpwe fair on account p| tbe place was wipjurea fls4 if P&? At Mr. Schenck's an old granary stood safely right in the path of the wind. At Mr. Rice's an empty wash tub stood on his .water tank in front of the windmill. The mill and tower and a chicken house were torn out completely, but the tub never moved an inch. The chicken house, a heavy 10x16 foot building, was taken around the end of hay stack and set in between two red oak trees, where it would have been difficult to pull it with horses, without a window glass being broken, and Saturday morning the hens were sitting on their eggs 'as unconsciously as though they had not been moved. At Mr. Rice's also the window lights were broken in the east end of his house. Fences were destroyed all along, but at the Boevers place the wire was broken and. blown about by the force of the wind. A man and wife who went through the Pomeroy cyclone were at Barber Williams' in town and went down cellar early. They said the storm acted exactly as it did at Pomeroy. They did not miss it much. J. J. Ryan and a friend stopped at Fred. Pompe's just as the rain began and decided to wait. Then they concluded that as they were wet anyway they might as well go on. It was a lucky conclusion. Mrs. Jos. Thompson was cool enough to stop on the way to the cellar and throw a pail of water on the kitchen fire so that the house would not burn above their heads if it was destroyed. Ed. Simpkins lost his grain at the Wm. Hill farm. The stacks were totally destroyed. The barn and mill also, A bee of farmers gathered Monday to collect the hay scattered along the Plum Creek country. NOBTH OB 1 "WESLEY, Graphic Description of the Terrible Scenes Enacted There, WESLEY, Sept. 24.— The cyclone last Friday night strewed destruction and death in its track north of Wesley, Commencing at the farm of J. F, Myers, better known as the Wm. Ward farm, it blew his house, barn, and outbuildings to kindling wood, The large grove around the house , was but little protection, many of the large trees being taken up by the roots and piled up where the house once stood. Mr, and Mrs, Myers and little girl were in the house when the storm struck it and escaped with but slight bruises, Mrs, Myers being hurt the worst, receiving a slight scalp wound- The house on the W, P. Giddings farm was turned over, Mr, Hill and wife, who are living in the house, escaped with but slight bruises, The stove fell on Mrs, Hill, pinning her fast. When her husband lifted it off of her he burned bis bands badly, The bouse of Fred. French, just across the road from the Wm. Wara farm, waf swept away. A heavy wind Saturday night started a freight car which was standing on the north side track at the Milwaukee depot, and the switch being a split or spring switch, the momentum gained was enough to carry it to the main track attd to the down grade to the east. A tnlle out it met the incoming eastern freight About 8 o'clock, which was running at about 26 miles an hour, The engineer attempted to stop but it was impossible as the loose car was then running at a rate of 20 miles an hour. The engineer, John W. Pumphrey jumped and called to the fireman, Mc- Eldoon, to do the same. Pumphroy was slightly injured and McEldoon was seriously hurt Internally. The head brakeman also jumped but was not hurt. The loose car was knocked into kindling wood, and the engine and five cars of coal wore ' totally wrecked and tumbled down the slight embankment at the draw in W. H. Clark's farm. Supt. Cosgrove sent his special from Mason City and ordered Dr. McCoy to come with the .injured men in it to that place, where both have homes. The wrecking crew began on the broken cars and engines, working all day Sunday. , Monday morning they had the ground fairly cleared. The cause of the accident is undoubtedly^ the habit boys have of loosening the brakes on cars. Agent Hedriok has been bothered a great deal. This car had been loosened nud so the wind started it. The matter will be thoroughly examined by the company. TJIE CITY CIRCUIT. The Burt band made good music for the county fair. Diphtheria ia reported in the Newman family in Irvington.- Jerre Grovor had a display of 10 varieties of seedling apples at the fair, all good apples. Col. J. J. Smart and N. R.

Robinson received a letter Monday from the Iowa Grand Army headquarters asking that full information of losses suffered by army comrades in the cyclone be sent to State Commander Geo. A. Newman.

The township authorities have been notified and every farmer will be required to see to it that none of the dread pests go to seed on bis farm, .This is a wise and timely precaution, Tbe plants can be got rid pf much easier now than after they have been permitted to multiply a thousand, Our cpunty supervisprs would do well to follow the example of their western neighbors and take steps toward securing the eradication of every plant qf the weed in Winnebago county, Many of the farmers in the Dakotas have been compelled to forsake their farms because of this pest.
