The heavy storm which visited
the southwestern portion of this

to be more extended and disastrous
than a first reported. In addition
to the accounts published in Tues

are down. The roof is off the B. &
M. coal shed and one end of the
buildinir is out: the roof is also off
the -water tank. George "Turner's
house and barn is fiat and An way's
blacksmith shop is scattered over
the prairie for a quarter of a mile.
Merrill's lumber yard is strewn all
over the prairie, some of the lumber
half mile. J.
R. Cosselman's barn was totally de
stroyed and his house is a complete
wreck, as is also the case with Geo.
Bickford's house. Several tele
graph poles are down and the wire
is on the ground. Windmills are
nearly all down in this neighbor
hood. About eight inches ot water
ell and the crops are all ruined.
Two cyclones formed; one in the
west and one in the northeast. The
one from the latter direction, which
was the larger of the two, came
within one-half mile of our town,
but it rose and passed over without
doing any damage. The one from
the -west caused the damage. No
one in this immediate section is ?e-J
ported to have been injured.
Though our loss has been very
heavy, we are very thankful that
we escaped with our lives.
Irrigation Exhibit at the State Pair.
The Lincoln county irrigation as
sociation has perfected arrange
ments for an exhibit at the state
fair to be composed of the irrigated
products of the Platte valley. Major
T. S. Clarkson will arrange all de
tails at Omaha, and during the fair
Mr. G. J. Hunt will remain in per
sonal attendance to explain our
advantages and resources. Mr.
Hunt has a thorough knowledge of
irrigation, is a very gifted gentle
man, who will not fail to make the
proper impression upon all inter-
ested in this locality. There is a
wide-spread interest in irrigation
oeing maniiestea tnrougnout tne
central portion of the United States,
and those who desire the settlement
of our irrigable lands should make
a special effort at this time. The
coming fair will undoubtedly, have
the largest attendance of "any ever
neid in tne state oi.ieDrasKa or in
the west, and we should go down
to Omaha with the best exhibit
from the irrigation district.
The following plan will be
adopted to. get this Exhibit to
gether: Farmers, market garden-
ers, rruit raisers and others should
interest themselves and secure the
best samples possible of their pro
ducts. Whole stools of grain should
be dug up with roots, including
wheat, rye, barley, oats and corn.
Alralra should be dug with whole
roots if possible, all should be care
fully cleaned, tied up and tagged
with the farmer's name and address.
Potatoes, some of which should
show a whole hill standing with
vines and tubers; f vegetables of
every kind; fruit branches well filled;
in fact, products of every kind, and
the more the better. These pro
ducts should be brought or sent to
the office of the secretary of the
association, Mr. E, F. Seebera-er.
where they will be cared for, placed
on exhibition and at the kroner
time boxed and shipped to Omaha-
