rail Details or tbe Disaster.
KassasChy, Mo., May 11. About
balf-past 10 o'clock this mo ning
ominous storm clo- ds began gathering
over the city. They first appeared n
the northeast and Burning westwardly
across the city, turn, d suddet ly about
in their course and, descending
laoidlyl broke upon the city in ter
rific bursts of wind and ram that
.nI,ni nil liohtur nbiects before them.
Tbe d.-rkness was almost like night
and people fled t- the nearest shelter
and awaited with blanched faces the
furvof the tempest.
olniwln seemed to craze the
roofs of the hiirtest buildings and
poured out their torretts in appar
ently solid maHses for a time. Ihe
storm struck the city in full force
a"out twenty minutei past 11 o'c ock
and ragd for half an hour. The
streets were running rivers of waters,
cariying boxes and Big' s and other
similar freight, blown from the buil '
ing or swept up by tt e flood. A num
ber of vehicles were overtornei and
in numerous instances drivers aban
doned their horses to their fate and
.ought refuge in stores and Louses.
Sjiue hailae.ornpanied tv.e storm, but
thd fall was r,ot great, therwi:ethe
loss to property would have been
eno'iiious fr.m water s reaminjz in at
broken w ndows. As it was, qu te a
large numb-r of buildings w.re water
aoaked. All this, howev.tr, proved
entirely insignificant when the full ex
tent of the disaster wrought by the
storm became known.
THE LATHROP SCHOOL HU1LDINO
occupied a prominent site at the cor
ner of Eighth and May streets. It
consisted of a main building to wlwa
an east wing had be?n added. The
building was (urmouniea Dy a luwei,
which for some time has been consid
ered unsafe. It has been twice con
demned, and within a few weeks, but
no action had been taken in the mat
ter. This morning the building was
crowded with children, many of wbom

appalling darkness which preceded

The rale a n icily subsided
and the work of rescue was nnd rtaken
hands. Owing to the prevail-
it g excitement tt'e first work was not
very effective, bat the fire department
and police soon arrived and an organ

dead and wounded were taken out
quicklv as possible and carried to the
natatorium adjoining which was
turned in'o a hospital. Hre the

the hill, exp-sed to winds from the
north and west. The building was

hotel purposes, but when completed
was purchased by the county fori 200,

The hnildine has always been coa
sidered rather unsatisfactory and the
roof has freauently suffered injury

The louth' wall at the east end was

Sheriff Dougherty was caught and
killed. All others succeeded in get

jail is located in the basemeTJt of tie

alarmed, but became quiet when the

in the cite, from which the stages
formerly were started across the plains
in stage coaohing days. The building

the United States engineers. Adjoin
ing that, on the west, was a three
itory brick coffee and spice mill,
owned by Smith & Moll'att. This
building was demolished, falling over
upon the adjoining one, and both
were completely wrecked. Frank

was taken bleeding from the ruins,
and died in a short time. Mr Mof

The second span from the north end
of the bridge across the Missouri, oppo
site the city, was blown into the river,
the nier being left apparently injured.
A g.eat numoer oi vuiegitii ywioo

span. Workmen are busy to-night
raising wires from "he wreck and it is
hoped communication in that direc

Hannibal and Joe Company, and is
used by that road, the Wabash, the
