minutes had killed sight people seriously injured from fif teen to twenty slightly injured at least twenty more cut a swath through a thickly populated section 200 foet wide and a mile long rendered 500 people home less destroyed or greatly damaged from seventyfive to 100 buildings find entailed a loss of at least all of which was uninsured against damage by wind and storm JuHt Missed the Crowded Mills South Lawrence is a busy railroad junc tion and is occupied mainly by welltodo mechanics The northern boundary of the belt of destruction was but three streets aouth of the lofty mills with their busy throngs of thousands of workers showing how narrow wai the escape from a more appalling loss oi life and property It was a veritable dog day This air was hot and humid Dark clouds icurried westerly through the heavens with an intermittent rain Suddenly the wind veered to the west an inkyblack coallike clone siemed to drop fromithe cumulous mass hanging lu the southwest and moving rapidly with awful aspect toward the city The Onslaught of the Tempest It was accompanied by torrents of rain In an instant the crash came Buildings were crushed like egg shells Some were lifted from their foundations and dashed to pieces Othere wero tipped over or blown from their positions and more or less damaged The air was filled with flying debris Most of those who met death in the wreck were killed instant ly Many lay unconscious in the ruius of their homes groaning Work of the Wild Wind The cyclone demolished everything in its course In Union square over 600 trees were leveled On EmmEit street the wind lifted a house belonging to Thomas Evanii and threw it mto the complete wreck Mr Evans wife and baby were in the house at the time but escaped with out injury One house was occupied by James Lyons and family On the ap proach of the storm Mr Lyons rushed Into the house seized the baby from his wifes arms and fled to the street Both man and child escaped but the dead body of Mrs Lyons was subsequently taken from the ruins Working People tllie Sufferers Innumerable Instances of loss of lifft or remarkable escapes occurred The occu pants of the ruined houses were mostly hard working and laborers wlioso homes represented a life time of toil The engineer on the express from Boston saw the cyclone as he was Hearing South Lawrence and stopped train thus probably saving the lives of his passengers as his train was due in South Lawrence about the time the cy clone struck A slight fire started in one of the houses but was promptly extin guished But for the heavy rain fire would undoubtedly have added to the horror of the scene Nauies of the EightXoad The following is a list of tha dead Michael Higgins aged 35 Mrs Mary OConnell aged 84 Miss Mary OConnell aged 17 Mrs Elizabeth Collins Annie Collins aged 6 Hannah Beattie aged 9 Mrs Mary Lyons and Helen Cutler The Most Seriously Jlurt Most of the injured were taken to pri vate houses but a number were conveyed

Mrs Merriman scalp wound Ora Morgan internal injuries Jimmieand Minnie McLnughllu badly bruised Mrs Thibault lacerated arm Lizzie Momssey Bpine Injured How One Man Found His Wife One man who owned a house a short distance east of South Lawrence hurried home when he heard of the storm to find his place His house had been blown over to the east and while the leeward side was all jammed together the windward front was lifted tip fully ten feet in the air Fire was already beginning to blaze among the ruius He forced his way through the timbers to his sitting room and there on the floor under the piano he found his wife A pile of bricks was on top of tho piano At one end of the in strument was a big stick of timber at the other was all the flooring of the room above But the piano legs were big and strong They held up under all the pressure and his wife Jwas rescued alive and well Singular Feature of the Storui WhaS seemed singular about the cyclone was the fact that some of the oldest and most rotten houses stood the gale well while new blocks of brick and wood fell tu masses of ruins Houses which still ataiid have all lost shutters chimneys or windows As soon as tho agents of the mills learned of the catastrophe they di rected their carpeuters mechanics and other male employes who could be spared to repair to the scene with saws axes and bars to assist in removing debris The work of the storm was so severe that streets in several places are impassable for teams and even for pedestrians WIPED OUT BY FIRE Wallace Idaho Swept and lSOO People Homeless SPOKANE FALLS Wash July

length It is said all the members present expressed them ftelves as opposed to the adoption of either of schemes outlined in the Hale and Pierce amendments to the tariff bill These schemes embrace the ideas Mr Blaine is so desirous of having injected into the tariff bllL Comments on the Scheme The Republican members of the ways and means committee informally dis cussed the matter after Mr Blaine had presented it to them in February last conclusion they arrived at was theit neither Spain nor the South Americam republics were in such financial position as would make a loss of revenue a thing to bethought of for a moment Most of the Republicans thought that the time for mutual concessions had gone by that tho time to have bargained was when coffee hides rubber etc were put ontlie free list in

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
