erty to an extent that at this writing can not be estimated Your correspondent was visiting friends in Lake City and was sit ting in the yard when what appeared to be an ordinary electric storm noticed ling up from the west In half an hour tho whole heavens was convertod into a complete canopy of lightning which was watched with interest by the nervy citi imnH of tlie little village and with fear by the timid women and children The Shook ol tlhe Hurrlcnno A little before dark a terrific wind the community and your reporter Bought the shelter ot tho house Justin time to escape being cinught under a huge that came crashing down against the house Windows were closed instantly and none too soon for tho cyclone was upon us nnd trees houses were fast bolng demolished in its path while my wife in fear and trembling sought the seclusion and protection of the cellar in company with the ladies of the house The building proved strong enough to weather tlie blast and in half nn hour the worst of tho hurricane had passed An Alarming Current As soon as the trees had been cleared away from the front of the house your correspondent stared out nnd soon learned that a horrible lalatriity had befallen the place that has not been equalled since the St Cloud cyclone several years ago Peo ple began to gather in the streets and in a few moments the news was scattered abroad that nn excursion boat with over 200 people on it was capsized in the mid dle of Lake Pepiu Tho boat proved to be the steamer Sen Wing which came down tho lake from Diamond Bluffa small place about seventeen miles north of here on an excursion to the encampment of the First regiment N G S M which is being hold fi mile below this city Tho Jlout Caught In tho Storm The steamer started back on tbo home ward

of the storm but the otlicers kept on tbo way Whilo the storm incrense1 as tlie boat continued rp tho lake and in fifteen minutes was at its height nenring Central Point about two miles above Lake City A FRIGHTFUL CALAMITY RESCUE OF THE LIVING A Cownrdly Captain Wno Three Score Corpses The storm having passed it was ex pected that Capt Howard whose steamer Ethel Howard lay at tha wharf would go out to rescue the living but much to everybodys surprise and indignation he refused saying that he was not going to risk his boat looking after dead people un til another threatened storm had gone by He held to his determination in spite of the fact that every moment might mean the saving of a life Leaving the captain to settle with bin conscience a dozen or more rowboats were manned and put out from the shore The upturned boat was at last discovered the twenty or more re maining people clinging to the ooat were rescued and brought to tne shore most of them being men who could swim Probably 130 JDronned A full list of the ISO passengers who ans pretty certain to have been drowned is noit obtainable at this writing A large ma jority of them were women and children those saved being nearly

brought to the bench by strong nnd ready swimmers There were about fifty in all that were on tho barge The events that triv spired on tho steamer after it sepa rated from the bnrge are probably most
