The Worst Tempest That
Ever Visited tola Swept
the Town Wednesday
IF
Old Nicholson Smoltor and Aurora
Foundry Ilair Lestroycd Many
Narrow hscnpes.
A wind storm that was a torapost, a
rain that was a cloud burst, a hall
storm that was florco and continuous,
swept over lola about 7 o'clock last
ovcnlng, breaking trees, riddling
shrubbery, Hooding buildings and do
ing thousands of dollars of damago
to!tho old Nicholson smoltor and tho
Aurora Foundry, Incidentally tying
up tho street car lino and upsetting
two Katy cars. Old timers say that
novor In tholr oxperloneo did thoy seo
a raoro furious assaultof tho olements.
In tho afternoon a greenish cloud
that looked dangerous came up In tho
north-west, but It veered to tho cast
and did not touch the town. Just bo
foro darkness foil in tho ovoning a
black cloud appeared from tho samo
quarter, but nobody looked for what
happened. A stiff breeze proceeded
the storm and about thetlmo overyono
thought tho rain would begin falling
and tho wind drop, tho fury of tho
tompost was but doveloping.
Tho wind increased to a terrible
force, bonding trees to tho ground,
dashing the rain and hall against
buildings with a power that scorned to
threaten to tear down tho walls. In a
mlnuto tho gutters woro running full
from tho rain, which seemed a cloud
burst. Tho hail was not larger than
bullets but It fell for several minutes
and was swept into winrows busido
buildings. Every door aud window
on tho north sido of houses was
searched out by tho storm and water
llowod Indoors. Tho storm lasted fif
teen or twenty mlnutos, but it seemed
to tho anxious peoplo as if it was an
. hour.
When tho uproar somowhat ceased,
the hall no longer falling and tho
wind abating, peoplo crept out of
doora and found their shrubbery beat-
on Into shreds, flowor plants ruined,
vinos whipped nudo of leaves, shado
trees split and branches lopped off, a
wrock of leaves scattered over tholr
lawns. A fusillade of bullets would
not more couiploteltyhavc strlppod tho
vegetation.
Ovor this scono of wreck and devas
tation, as darkness began to settlo,
tho wind carried tho long distress
whtstlo from tho factories cast of town.
A locomotive in tho samo neighbor
hood took up tho alarm and tho dolo
ful duot made pcopio's llesh creep
ovor tho unknown havoc which the
alarm unnounced to have" beon wrought
oast of town.
Men drosscd for mud and wator and
hurried to Kast lola. All tho way tho
walks were Hooded and tho trees were
broken. On Kast Madison avonuo a
milk wagon, caught on its rounds by
tho storm, was turned upside down.
Tho team had run away when tho
downpour of hail began.
Tin: wkecic in kast iola.
Tho vory center of all tho wreckago,
howover, was at tho crossing of tho
Missouri Pacific and streot railway.
Allying roof from tho Aurora Foundry
had como down tlioro, boarlog to tho
street tho trolloy wire, tho surportlng
wlros and tho poles, together with a
string of tolophono wires. This mass
of electrified wire completely filled tho
street, blocking tho east bound even
ing Missouri Pacific passenger train
for half an hour. The wl.4s wero cut
and tho train slowly maJo Its way out
of tho wreck and to tho oast.
A ploco of tho same roof which wont
a little faitlier, dashed in tho sldo o
nit- uiiiew anu sncti oi narry Tiiomas's
lumber yard. The shed was wrecked
for forty feet
Of tho four buildings of tho Aurora
Foundry, two woro nearly dostroyed.
Tho north-oast building, a new one,
occupied as a pattern room, was total
ly wrecked, tho brick walls being torn
down and tho roof carried away. Tho
wost wall and part of tho north wall
of tho machlno shop, tho largo new
building at tho west of tho plant, wero
also torn down. Several mon woro at
work in tho shop when the crash came.
D. C. Wlllman was tho only ono who
was Injured. Ho was hiton tho should

bered from tho west. In tho west
building ( Nos. 1 and 2) nothing was
left but tho Iron and brick of tho fur
nace itsolf, noarly all of tho franio
building ovor it having been torn
away and tho double chimnoy knocked
down on top of tho furnaco. Nos. .'1
and !, shut down for icpairs, were
untouched. Tno one unhurt, live
block was 5 and 0, which is still In
operation. Tho next two blocks to the
cast woro unroofed, and tho north
sides of tho building knocked down.
Tbo blow plpos woro all wrecked and
with tho blast shut off, thoro was some
thing uncanny about the multi-colored
llames tssuiug from tho retorts whllo
tho rain poured down upon them. It
was this rain which alone provontcd
tho plants destruction by fire, for tho
llames caught In tho wreckago of ono
of tho blocks.
Somo idea oftho forco of tho wind
may bo had from ono trick It played
at this plant. On a siding wero four
freight cars, with their ond to tho
storm. Throo wero empty and tho
fourth was loaded with 40,000 pounds
of spelter. Tho wind pushed this string
of cars up a decided grade for fifty
feet or moro.
Just oast of tho Nicholson plant
stands tho old A. J. McCarloy house.
A pleco of flying roof from ono of tho
smoltor furnaces was dashed against
tho sldo ot the house, caving It In.
Tho old barn, just north-oast of tho
house also went down boforo 'ho wind
and part of it was dashed against tho
house, wrecking tho kitchen. Threo
families, ton people in all, occupied
the house, but all escaped injury.
A wugon load of wreck from tho
barn blow out on tho street car track,
falling with a crash about fifty feet in
front of a streot car which wus ap
proaching from tho oast. Tho car was
stopped without injury, but is still
thoro, tho power being shut oil soon
aftorward. .
Tho poles of tho olectrlo lino woro
pulled out of plumb by tho storm and
considerable work willhavoto bo dono
along tho lino before tralllc can bo re
sumed. Ono of tho tricks of tho storm, which
brings homo most forcibly tho florco-
ness of tho galo, was tho overturning
of two passongor coaches attached to
tho roar of a Katy freight train pass
ing north of tho Nicholson smelter.
Tho train was on tho main lino and
tho two long, heavy coaches wero
turned on their side on tho siding to
tho south. Soveral pooplo aro said to
havo been In tho cars but nono wero
soriously hurt. Strangely enough tho
string of empty box cars was not up

AT Tim CEMENT 1'LANT.
The storm was unablo to do any
damago to tho steel buildings of tho
cement plant, but tho flood of water
unod tho quarry and the rain was
drlvon Jlnto the buidlngs at sovoral
places. Tho quarries will bo ldlo for
several Jdays and it Is estimated that
tho damago dono ln ono way or an
other will amount to S10,000. Water
roachod tho olovator pits and tho bolt
convoyors, and these will havo to bo
cleaned out beforo work can proceed
Work will bo suspendod for soveral
days and it will bo sovoral weeks bo

Tho Lanyon Zinc ICompany's plant
was not Injured. Tho roof was blown
off the water tank near tho railroad
crossing, but that doos not amount to
much.
AT HAS CITY AND h HAWK.
At Gas City tho storm was sovero
but less so than In lola. Tho two now
furnaco blocks bolug orected at tho
smelter south of tho railroad, owned
by tho New Jersey Zinc Company,
weio blown down. Tho loss lslohicfly

ono dwelling was blown over. The
homo of William Jameson, on north
McHao street, was struck by lightning
and tho roof torn up. The family was
away Ifrom homo and tho lightning
luckily did not set firo to tho houso.
Out at La Harpo tho storm did no
damago. No hall fell thero and tho
wind only blew down tho bowling al
ley tent.
DAMAGE TO THE CHOI'S
A traveling man roports that tho
storm did considerable damago at
Colony and followed the railroad
south to lola,; tho sweep of the des
tructive center being about a milo
wldo. Corn is laid flat on tho ground
and tho loaves aro completely whip
ped off. Hast of Iola this sldo of La
Harpo most of tho corn is .standing,
tho wind having been lighter and no
hall falling.
A resldcneo in Kast Iola, south of
tho acid works was blown off Its
foundations. It was a two story
frame building, but tho owners uaino
could not bo loarncd. Numerous out
buildings were upset.

Whon tho coach upset ho fell against
a hat rack and sustained a sovoro
brulso on his sldo and shoulderbladc.
Noarly everyone In tho coach was
bruised, but nono of tho hurts was at
all serious.
A Kecjisteii roporter found tho
Morgans at tho Nichols hotol this
morning and loarnod tho facts. As
stated, tho oar was standing on tho
pralrlo whon tho storm carao. It was
right in tho tract of tho severosl wind.
Tho rain beat into tho coach and
rocked It hack ami forth. There was
no gust or twist hut tho galo Increased
and slowly but llrinly picked the coach

FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 1903
Picked up After ;tho Storm.
It is cprtalnly hard luck for tho
streotear line. Woro tho lino in opera
tion two-thirds of Iola would havo
takon tho trip to view tho wreck Thurs
day.
On of tho passongors on tho east
bound Pacific train WoJnesdaywas tho
president of tho Aurora Foundry com
pany. When tho train was stopped
by tho wreck of the roof of ono of his
buildings ho got off and remained in
town. IIo says ho has bcon burned
out four or five tlmo and now tho wind
has started in on him.
A pano of glass .10 by -JO was blown
In tho front of tho Yeagoar grocery in
East Iola. It full on a show caso,

hoard to moan; "Tho houso ,1s going!
Tho houso Is going.
Somobody drovo a horse and buggy

near tho Iola crossing last night. In
tho darknoss tho horso becamo en

cussed.
In Wednesday's Register ap
peared tills ad: "Tho old framo houso
just cast of Nicholson's smolter must
bo moved at onco. For particulars
Inquire at Northrups Bank." Tho
houso was moved. It was tho old
McCarloy houso. Now people aro
asking what kind of an advertising
medium tho Heoistkii is.
Tho storm Is cortaln to havo dono
considerable damage to crops, Tho
small grain is out of tho way, but corn
must havo been blown down, tho stalk
beaten and riddled by tho hall and
possibly tho ears wrenched off tho
stalks.
One of the worst wrecks in town wero
tho two mammoth "elephants' ears"
which adorned the lawn of Miko
Miller and wero tho envy of the wholo
neighborhood. Only a .few brusicd
stalks wero left to .indicato whore tho
handsome 'plants stood. All over
town housowlves are mourning their
flowers and vinos.
