THE RUTLAND DAILY GLOBE, SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 7, 1873.
The f treat Torntiito.
unscnirnos ahd tiiiiili.ino incidents.
Juit after tills hailstorm the sun came out,
anil was shining brightly. It was about
twenty minutes after two o'clock when tho
residents near Lancaster heard a low rum
ble, which sounded llko tho nolso of distant
cannon or tho roar of n railroad train among
tho hills. On looking to tho southwest n
thin vertical streak of darkish cloud was
seen against a clear sky, which, as it came
nearer grow louder in its complaining and
deeper in Its hue. It advanced apparently
at an avcrago speed of forty'inllcs an hour,
occupying a inlnuto or a nilnuto and a half
in its passage. In width it covered a spaco
of about' eighty rods) Us height was com
paratively. Inconsiderable. It was, In fine,
a whirling column of wind, given a color
and almost a consistency by tho dust and
water with which It was laden. Its passage
was accompanied by frequent electrical dis
charges, though tho lightning was more fre
quent and notable than tho thunder, and
after it camo a flood of rain, whoso fury no
experience in tho State can parallel. Where
it was prairie or ploughed land the earth
was left a pool of water, and the streams
were swollen Into torrents that raged within
thoir old channels with the fury of so many
small Niagaras, swallowing up overhanging
banks and wooded knolls.
Thu tornado first declared itself n liltleto
the west of Lancaster, Keokuk county. Of
the score of houses there it hardly Iclt one
standing. Thence traveling to the north
east, it passed abovo Talleyrand and south
of Kiota, fortunately avoiding the village,
hut laying wntc the Uerman settlement
three miles away. It then left the earth for
a dlstancu of nine miles, and swooped down
again In Washington county, fie or six
miles tu the north and west of Washington
town. It ploughed a furrow of ruin heie
about eight miles long, then leaped Into the
air at Highland township, d.ishing to earth
again in Midland township. This was the
expiring effort of Its rage.
m,TIiu path of ruin thus traced win about
thirty miles in length. In no place did it
exceed a quarter of a mile in width, nnd oc
casionally it narrowed itself to n hundred
yards or so. Its course was so precisely
defined that at one point a farmer's barn's
were swept away ami the trees in Ills yard
uprooted, while bis house, though but thir
ty feet away, was lelt untouched. The
Iowa tornado did not content itself by flat
tening houses anil barns intu lumber heaps.
It strikes a building, and the building van
ishes as if it had been blown up by gun
powder, and only a ragged pit where the
cellar once wns is left.
Not far from Wasbigton town is the most
accessible scene of disaster. Here the
storm swooped down upon some dozen
bouses, the residences of wealthy farmers,
and swept them from the face of the earth us
if with tho besom of destruction. Mr. L'un
ningham's house and barn were blown into
splinters and carried away, but the storm
compensated for tho theft by a shower of
sluvereil wood, boards una ratters, which
fell In the fields, and, sticking there, made
the farm look liku a fretful porcupine.
There was butlittlu Imagination lequlred to
make one believe that he stood at Agin
eourt, Crcey or FloiMen, on a battle ground
where tho terrible clothvard shafts of the
archers had fallen thick as hail. Some of
these fragments were embedded In two feet
of clay, and defied tho strength of man to
remove them. Old farmers say that in some
localities it will bo impossible to proceed
witli cultivation untit these cumbcrcrs of
the ground shall have rotted. Many of
tneso rutlo darts bore their billet, lor nogs
wero found pierced in their vital parts, and
several fowls were pinned to the ground by
these shafts shot by the archers ot the air
Some of the fowls were found dead witli
but few feathers upon them, the feathers
having been chafed off while tho birds were
whirled about in the storm amid the myri
ads ol abrading substances. There were
four persons in the house, women and
children, who were only slightly injured,
though the wind took tho house away, nnd
sucked them out of the cellar m which they
had taken refuge. To crown all, the largo
granary near tho house was unroofed, and
several hundred bushels of grain poured
lroni it into the cellar of the house, as neat'
ly as if it had been dono by an elevator.
Two invalid children, who hnd been put
into a feather bed for security, were saved,
tiiousii tho wind carried them fitly or sixty
yards nwnr and covered them up with
splinters and straw. There was not n tree
left in tho orchard. Tho wind shelled the
car corn in the cribs and scattered It every
where. Halt a ilozcn tatted cuttle, wiitcn
were awaiting tho butcher, were blown into
n swamp, and ono had tho whole of its
head aud neck driven into the earth.
'A cornsheller, weighing some blx hun
dred pounds, was blown some hundred aud
Mr. itnlirnrk'sliniisn and barns weit: car.
lied away. With the furniture went $300
in bills nnd S1.600 in notes. The apple
trees wero torn out by hundreds, and a lot
of locust trees, some tour lcet in circum.
ferencc, broken, off us neatly ns If n saw
had been used to cut them through jubt
nlxive the ground.
Mr. Henry Walters' farm was swept
clean. A cook stove was blown hal f a mile
Aniomr tho other serious or curious inci
dents may lxj mentioned the wicckhujof
Mr. Waters' house and the probably fatal
wounding of his mother by u broken Imaril
that penetrated lier linen: 1110 mowing 01
a teamster, named linker, his wagon nnd
teams, clean over a fence ; tho uprooting
of some tombstones In a cemotery, near
Lancaster; tho abstracting ot wou in
giecnbacks, which an economical Uerman
woman had hidden in tho roof of her house.
and tho completo destruction of a large
flock of bheep at tho same place, which
were tossed up into tho nlr-tlll, ns an eye
witness afllrmcd, they "looked like so
Ot all tho terrible death, though it was
mercifully instantaneous, that ol' Mrs. En-
Kierdiuge, who liven iiiiout live nines troni
Kiota, was tho most horrible. She was
sick In lied with her baby when tho storm
fame on nnd blew tho houso away. As it
rose two or three of the larger timbers must
have been driven against her bed with the
swiftness of cannon balK Ono cut the
ton of tho child s head off nnd cnrrled nwav
part of the brain. Two others struck the
uutortunalc woman in the abdomen and
neck, broke her into fragments, us if she
had been torn asunder by four wild horses
or mown irom a cannon, inu legs and in
ferior portions of the trunk went one way;
part of the chest, the stomach and ono arm
another i the other arm was torn off and
found sticking In u bank of sand, and tho
head, neck aud a fragment of the bust were
found a long distance from the other ghast
ly idles of humanity. The total Toss is
variously estimated in money at $175,000
to iftlOO.OOO, including thhty-fhe houses,
1,200 sheep, 2,500 hogs, 100 bead of cattle
forty horses and all the crops along the
track of the storm. The list of killed and
wounded Bhows twelve persons dead and
twenty-nine wounded. Detailed reports
nave yet to come in ironi ivcokuk county
and several of tho wounded cannot lecover,
so mat trom eigiiieen to ttvoniy-iivo name
will probably lie on the death roll.
A very singular murder wns icqently
committed upon ono of the Irish railroads.
The conductor of n night train, noticing
that his train wus slackening its speed,
went to the locomotive to scu what hail
happened, and found neither tho engineer
or tiio fireman umiii tliu engine, lie nt
onco stopped tho train, nnd upon investiga
tion', found tho engineer lying dead ,somo
distance in the rear, with n fearful wound
in Ids head. 'Shortly afterward tho fireman
made his appearance, nnd stated that, they
had hod a quarrel, and that during tho
struggle,-he struck tho engineer, and both
fell from tho engine. Fortunately) tho
speed of the train In some manner was
slackened or a most appalling disaster
might have taken plnco. Such a possibility
as this la not, a very pleasant consideration
for railroad travelers. Engineers and lire
men who' hayp troublo with each other
would display moro consideration If they
would walt for tho' first station and their
settlo It, rather than knock each other off
tho engine, and leave a train to go on Its
way with no ono to control it. Railway
traveling has dangers enough now-a-tlays
growing, put of .careless conductors' aud
other cause wltlvout having this now dan
gcr. added." A locomotlvo cab Is tho best
place in tile world in which to keep one's
