Shortly nftor -I o'clock In tho after
noon when tho people o( Itcndlng, Pa.,
wero looking forwnrd to elenr wcnlhor
und tho ruin hnd censed, thu scene
chnnged with n audilcnncsi tlmt wns
itppiillin, Tho ileeey cloutlfl jrnvo wny
to the oniinofis signs ot ti coming' storm.
Dark, ht'iivy brinks of clouds lnnrshuled
themselves lowurds tlio fiont, nutl n.
gloom seomed to hnvo settled over tho
city. Thero wns n stillness ns of n coin
ing dutiger. Then tho wind whistled
nnd ronred mid tore in mutt confusion,
Tho starni clouds grew heavier still,
nnd louder ronred tlio wind. In tlio
westem sky tho storm wns seen npprpch
lng with a thundering noise. Tho swnth
it cut wns iitirrowi hut its effect wns
terrible. Persons residing nlong tho
track of tho Btorm sny that tlioy saw tlio
first signs of dnngor In n funnel-shaped
mielstrom, which scorned to jjntlicr up
everything within its rench and cast it
right nnd left.
Out in thu country, houses nnd barns
were unroofed, farm outbuildings over
turned, crops rooted up, nnd destruction
spread in ovcry direction. Tho track of
this dcsttuclivo clement was not inoro
than two hundred feet wide, mul it is
lucky that It only touched tho suburbs
of tho city. It enmo from tho west, but
missed along tho northern border of
IJending. First it touched tho Jit. Ponn
Stovo Works. Hero tlio corner of tho
building wns struck, nnd n portion of
tho roof was cut oft as nicely as if done
with a pair of sclssois. Thon tho storm
cloud scuri led across somo fields nnd
took olln portion of thu roof of J. II.
Stcrnborgh's rolling mill, and a number
of dwellings were unroofed as nicely as
if their tin roofs wore paper.
Tho storm then hurried ncross tlio
property of the Ituading Hail toad Com
pany and crossed the railroad. Nero a
passenger car wns standing.
ltn.VlUNO IIMt'f.OYES 1IOASTUI).
This wns overturned ns liontly as if it
was a toy, and Its splinters wero scat
tered in overy direction. Meanwhile,
the rnin poured down in torrents. Tlio
atmosphere became heavy and oppress
ive, and it wns almost as dnrk ns night.
Directly alongside tho tracks of tho
Jtcading J'iiilroiul wns shunted the paint
whops of tho Heading Hallroad Company.
It wns a one story building, nbout 150 by
150 feet in size. 'Hero about thirty men
wero employed painting passenger cars.
Thero wore eight or nine of these cars
in the building. They had been built In
the company's shops in this city nt a.
cost of six thousand dollnrs each. The '
building wus struck square in the middle,
and the bricks scattered about ns if they
wero playthings. The enrs woro turned
topsy-turvy, while tho men wero buried
under tlio dubrls. Some of tho bricks
wero cniried n square away. Tho cham
ber of each of tho passenger cais was
iihendy llllcd with gas, as they woro
ready, to bo taken out on tho road in a
few days. Theso exploded ono after
another, with tho fenrful bnng of n can
non. Hang! hang! bang! they resounded
over tho city, causing tho people to run
out of their houses, thinking that it was
the sound of un cnrthqiinke. Thero was
a considerable quantity of gasoline in
the building, ami that added fuel to the
II allies, A sheath of llunio shot heaven
waul with tho roar of musketry.
rjomo twenty "of tho men had, a chance
to crawl out of the debris, but four of
their companions wero onvelopcd in thu
embrnco of the flames. Their cries were
heard for a moment by the terrified work
man, and then their voices wero hushed
forever. They wero quickly roasted ito
iTefflrT, "and the lire from tho nine passen
ger ears lit up tlio heavens for miles
nvoutid. It was n beautiful sight, and
could have been enjoyed but for the aw
ful calamity which brought it about. In
tlio meantime tho ilio department was
called out, but its services wero uiiavail-
iig. The building and ears wero con
sumed in fifteen 'minutes, and nothing
loft but blnckcned, smoking ruins, under
which lay four human beings, burned to
i crisp. I heir names are John Kahler,
Albert Jjntiuiierger, siiciuinn Jones and
It was rumored that several others had
been killed, but theso iiie the only ones
who it Is known have lost their lives.
Aaron Dowalt, another employe in the
liaint shop, had his arm broken, and
Geoigo Knabb wns Injured Internally, no
doubt fatally. Tho loss to tho rnilrond
.company is fully $75,000. While tills
was all going on, tho storm whs traveling
forward with fearful rapidity. It must
have traveled at the rate of onp hundred
miles an hour. It struck somo'mqro pri
vate houses and unroofed a dozen privato
residences. Tho huge sheets of tin wero
can led half a squaie nwny and deposited
in a lot.

Then the storm proceeded In its fury.
Directly in Its path', at the corner of
Twelfth and Marlon streets, stood tho
Heading Silk Mill, ono of tho industries
of the city, lu which tho citizens took
tho greatest pride. Hero about 175
happy' girls woro workintr. Tho build-
ing was n, huge structure, most substnn-t
unity imut, iour stories in height mill
hnd a basement beside. It occupied nil
entire block uf ground'. Tho size of the
building itself was nearly 1100. feet in
length and about 150 feet wide. It wus
surmounted by n massive towor, fully
100 feet from tho ground. Tho funnel
shaped storm cloud struck tho building
directly in the centre on its broadest
side, which faced tho west.
It fell to nieces as if composed of so
ninny building blocks. Nearly two bun
Urud human boltigs wont down iu tho
awful wreck. Human tongues can
nuvcr tell tho teniblu scenes of that hour.
The walls gave way, the floors fell down,
one on top of tho other, and carried their
great mass of human bolngs to tho bot
tom. The bricks wero piled up in tlio
greatest confusion while utiild tho hurri
cane anil whjstllng, rushing, routing
wind, torriblo cries for succor wero sent
up to Heaven. It was a moment that
tried men's bonis, and almost simultan
eous with tho fall of tho building camo
tlio uwful cries for relief. Girls with
hlnckoncd faces, bruised anil broken
limbs, their clothing tattered and torn,
dragged themselves from tho ruins, Bo,
probably, seventy-live to a hundred es
caped, or wero dragged out by their
menus. Theso, of course, worked on
the upper floors, ami wero thrown near
thu top of thu debris.
At some places tho bricks wero piled
twenty feet deep, and underneath these
are lying to-night human bodies by tlio
score. About 250 girls and young women
nro usually employed in tho mill, but
ut (our o'clock about eighty woio re
lieved from duty for the day. They re
turned to their homos before tho storm
came. Tho most rellnblo estimate of to
night places tho number in tho building
wliun it wont dowu nt 175, n-d,
as before stated, 100 of theso wuio res
cued by fiiends or dragged themselves
out immediately after tho accident. Tlio
tilarm for relief was immedintoly sont

citlens nrrived to help get out tho dead
TUB S0E.NU WAS A HAllltOWIKO ONE,
ami beggars description. Thu mill is
situated near tho foot of tho Pcun, u
high mountain overlooking the city.
Whon tlio people nrrived tho city was
envolopod in dnrkness. Thon hugo
honflros wero built, which cast a dismal
glare ou tho surrounding scene. Tho
tlio companies left the burning paint
shop and assisted in tho rescue of tho
dead nnd tho dying. Tho entire police
forco was cnllcd out. The nmbulnticu
nnd tho relief corps and a thousand pco
plo were in among tin dobrls carrying
out bricks, pulling away timbers, 'and
assisting wherever they could, all nt tho
same time; but their work wns slow
compared with tho demand for tlio res
cue of the victims of the disaster. Here
a young .-woinnn wns tnkon out, nil
bruised, suiTcriug with cuts nml bruises.
Ono body noticed ns it wns dragged
out had its bend cut off. Others wero in
various postures, tho living all sulTeilng
from tho most tcrriblo wounds, nnd some
almost scared to death. Tho Associated
Press repicscntatlvo entered what was
onco the basement of tho building, mid,
groping his way through tho debris,
noticed flvo bodies of young girls lying
closo together. Ho tried to pull them
out, but thov wore pinned down, and It
was Impossible to get thorn out. They

Tho silk mill was built about four
years ngo. Tho builders were Heading
capitalists, and tho cost of putting it up
wns $-0:5,000. The mill wns then leased'
to Grlmshaw Brothers of Patterson, N.
J., where they also operate slmllnr mills,
and tboy hnvo been running It over bIiicc.
The machinery they put up in the mill
cost $43,000. This is a total loss.
It Is dlllleult to estimate the dnmago
done nt this time. Ono of tho buildings
occupied by Wcldin fc Co. belongs to
David Gregg, the other is dwned by Mrs.
I). Reed Morrison. They wero probably
jvorth $5,000 ench, and aio total wrecks.
Tho loss to "Wcldin & Co.'s stock is
probably -?25,000. It will be doublo that
if it should rain to-night. Tho corner
building, owned by David Gregg, is
damaged to tho extent of $:!,000. The
