DUQ.UOIX, 111., Jan. before In the history of Southe rn Illinois in general and Duquoin in particular has an old year been rushed out and a new year ushered in with such a storm as prevailed here Tuesday night. Just as the first bell announced the. new year, an electric, wind and rain storm, hardly before equalled for severity in this section, broke loose, and. with thft twenty-five or fifty bells, the steam- whistles and the cannon firing, pande- monium ruled supreme. Many people, forgetful of the new year, thought the millennium had arrived and fell on their face-, with prayers and supplications for mercy. During the height of the terrible storm some miscreant turned in a gen- eral fire alarm, which made matters, if possible, still worse. The storm raged two hours. Gates, fences, signs and other properties were destroyed during the tempest. Tho immense quantities of water that have fallen delayed all trains and may yet prove the cause of some expensive wrecks and loss of life. _______________ TKOUBL1] AV1TH CHINESE f. ;a Fell on O..
