Lake City, Minn., July 14.-What will probably prove to be tlie most disastrous cyclone that haa ever struck this community passed over this city at 9 o'clock last evening, 'inflicting a loss of life of perhaps oiie or two .hundred people and damaging property to an extent that at this writing cannot be estimated. Your correspondent was visiting friends in Lake City, and was sitting in tSe 3 ard when what appeared to be ordinary electric storm was seen �coming up from the west. In half an hour the whole heavens was converted to a complete canopy of liglitning, which was Avatched with interest by the bravo citizens of the little village and with fear by the timid women and children. A little before dark a terrific wind struck the community and your reporter sought the shelter of the house just in time to escape being caught under a huge tree tliat came crashing down agaiiist. the house. Windows were closed mstantly, and none too soon, for the cyclone wass upon us, and trees and houses were fast being, 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, I assisted in closing, shutters and making Preparations for the Worst that could be expected, wlule trees were heard to be.crashing.down and missiles were striking against the house. The building iiroved strong enough to weather the blast, and in half an hour the worst of the liuiTicane had passed. As soou as the trees had been cleared away from the front of the housfe it was soon learned that a horrible calamity had befallen the place, that has not been equaled since the St. Cloud cj'clone sev-veral years ago. People began to gather in the streets, and m a tew moments the news was scattered abroad that an excursion boat, with over two hundred people on it, was capsized in the middle of LakePepin. The boat proved to be the steamer Sea Wing, which came down the lake from Diamond Bluff, a small glace about seventeen miles north of ere, on an excursion to the encampment of the First regiment, National guards, which is being held a mile below this city. The steamer started back on its homeward tnp about 8 o'clock, and although there were signs o'f an approaching storm it was not considered m any way serious and no danger was anticipated. The boat was crowded to fullest capacitj'-.ibout one hundred and fifty men, women and children from Red Wing and Diamond Bluff being on bofird, and about fafty people on a barge, which was attached" to the side of the steamer. When about opposite Lake Oily the boat bugan to leal the effects of the storm, but the officers kept on the way. The Storm luuroHSud as the boat continued up the lake, and in hfteen minutes was at its height, nearing a central point about two miles above Lake City. The steamer was at the mercy of the waves, which were now washing over the boat, and all was confusion. The boat momentarily ran on to a bar, and the barge was put loose and the steamer again set adrift in the lake. lA number of those on the barge jumped and swan ashore. As the barge also floated again into deep water, those on the barge saw the steamer as it was carried helplessly, out into tlie middle of the' lake; and, as they were being tossed about on tbb raging waters, they were horrified a moment later to observe the steamer capsize and its cargo of 180 People Precipitated Into the I.ake.- Thoaeonthe barge remained tbere^ until they were drifted' near shore and: they were allrescued or swam ashore. Amobg them were twoladies, who were brought to the beach by strong and ready swimnlers. The events that transpired on the steamer after it separated from the barge are probably most clearly related by those who were rescued from it. As soon m the storm had begun to effect the progress of the boatGaptian Weathern gave, instructions to run the boat into the Wisconsin Bhofe, but itwas: against a too terrible force of lyind and waves. In five minntes more the waves began to wash into the boat and fill its lower decks, Vnd while the hail stones as large as hen eggs came . down on' the heads of; the helpless creatures huddled together on the top, s. Des Moines, la., July 14.-The week's Iowa weather crop bulletin shows an average temperature ot 35 degress above normal and a rainfall generally deficient. Telegraphic reports of showers on the evening of the llth give promise that the excessive drought m the southern and southeastern counties was mitigated. The week was favorable to haying and harvesting and matured crops are being secured in excellent condition. Extreme heat hastened the ripening of spring cereals and caused a shrinkage of grain in some localities, but the general condition is fair. Corn IS very promising, and as yet uninjured by drought except withm limited area.. With favorable conditions the future will nearly if not quite equal last year's big yield,  Gen, Fisk Buried. Coldwateb, Mich., July 14.-The remains of Gen, Clititon B, Fisk reached this city Saturday afternoon on the 5 o'clock tram and were met at the depot by the Grand Army ot the Republic, W. C. T. U, delegates from the Prohibition club, aud a large concourse of citizens generally. As the funeral services had been held in New York the day previous the remains were taken at once to Oak Grove cemetery, -where the burial service was read, a requiem sung by a choir and the remains were laid to rest beside those of his two children, who died many years ago m St. Louis. It Wore a Bogus Stamp. PiTTSlsuiiG, July 14.-The Times states on authority of Col. R. H. Thomas, secretary of the Pennsylvania State Grange, that the bogus letter purporting to have been sent out by President Harrison accepting an invitation to the Grange exposition at Carlisle, emanated from W.
