   Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - April 5, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas                                limfttifflOlt DAILY tt**8: SATURDAY MORNDfO, APfilL (5,1800. < AN ARIZONA SAND STORM. EXPERIENCE OF PASSENGERS ON A TRAIN OVERTAKEN BY ONE. A Huppy Party ltttri�1y OUtottiftl-H*ad� Wrapped In Towel* unci flbiwta for His Hour*, While tti* Sand lira* Throngl.

Horry n spwluelw us they pre-Bont/it, Ui� ciu-k ii|wn wiiieli tlioy winm were until I sorrier.   They lookwl na if tlio train had ln*'ii through n gigantic wind blast, and such prnvod to Im really ttip fnout VI dogs, below zero, and the urbane porter wa� comforting us with the reflectiou that in a very few hours we should go dowu grade and Ite in a semi-tropical climate, when iihddenly, as we were crossing Canon Diablo, that infernal storm of sand burst upon us. Have you ever seen that red saudof the great American ilcwert? It is as fine us extra superfine Hour and more penetrating than the best directed shot- from a ten inch rifled gun of modern pattern. Now we are in a clear blue sky, the sun smiling joyously down upon earth. "Then-and then means le�^ than one-half a second afterward-we are in the midst of a cloud of Mind, which with infinite Impudence and without knocking, forces entrance everywhere. Pullman cars have double windows, and all of those are fust. lu a trice the ventilators are closed tight, and the porter and conductor stand with cocked revolvers to shoot tho first man, friend or foe, who seeks to enter. A surgeon is on tho car, and he at once calls out in steutoriau voico that every passenger shall envelp his or ber hend with a sheet or towel. "It is tho hour of 1 iu tho afternoon. Jn a trice wo puss from light to darkness. Tho engineer afterward declares that he was unable to see tho bell on his engine or his smokestack, und consequently he pulls up at u full stop within a quarter of a mile of Winslow station. He can push his engine through snow, even though it be piled up a foot or more on tho track, but his experience has taught him that if sand be piled up, though but an inch or two above the rail, his entire train will be ditched. He is aware that a train is likely to butt into his and that a western bound train is likely to telescope him in front. But he realizes also that the switch ahead may be misplaced. Hence his halt. Ding, dong, dong, ding! goes his bell, and thus it keeps up unremittingly. "There is not much talking. The most optimistic of our party once in a while essay a pleasantry, but the individual who attemps it grows pale and retires within himself. I cannot describe the situation, nor could you do so had you been there. Later ou, after the storm had passed, we were told at Winslow by those who had been there since the towu had had it* being that that section was visited about once a month by a simoon, but that it was exceptional for such a storm to endure for more toon an hour. Yet we struck that storm at 1 o'clock in the afternoon, and it did not subside until one-half hour after 0. During that time the blast struck on the corner of our rear coaches and-kept them con-stonily rocking, each of them being lifted up to the utmost limit of the car springs, and dropped back again heavily upon the axles. Not one of us dared expose eyes, nose or mouth one second, but we kept our visages concealed by sheets, blankets, towels, or a triple supply of handkerchiefs. It was awfully discouraging, I can assure you. If a fellow was minded to talk ho could not be heard, because all the rest hud their ears so 1 muffled up that they could not have heard j thunder when at its best, or an entire broad- njaMue cruptlbn on OCl. 14 of the ptrvl* out. yett* -when ita length wm found to be one and four-tenths of A mile and lit height 165 feet In 1889 tho Island wan thoroughly examined, and tho surrounding sea Bounded by her majesty's surveying ship Egcrift, when it was found to be one and one-tenth of a mile long and nine-tenths of a mile wide.
