Smoke and Steam
Omaha, May 12. Mount Iona, ths
only volcano In the United States, Is
today sending out smoke nnd steam
after a silence of thirty years. These
reports are brought from Cedar coun
ty. Neb., where the mountain Is situat
ed, by travelers who say that settlors
In the neighborhood are panic stricken
and aro preparing to lcavo tho country.
Tho mountain Is situated on the Mis
souri river, 1G0 miles aOtivo Omaha,
and while not of great-'height, is high
compared to tho surrounding country.
For years it has been a sacred place
with tho Indians and it was near thcro
that tho last big sun danco was held
In 1878. No Indian will go to tha
mountain Itself, as It has long been Aascn, 478 tons,
known bb a hill of fire. Lewis and '
Clark, In their exploring expedition In
1807, landed at tho place and reported
to the Government that they had ills
covered a small volcano on tho banks
ot tho Missouri. Ooofeglsts havo said
that the volcano is caused from water
sweeping through tho limestone, forma
tion of tho mountain, but tho people
aro fearful of an eruption and are pro
paring to niovo.
