tent of the damages done by the cyclone
. that Swept. throu4h this State on FridaT
Is worse than at Ilrst thowlit. The cy.
e clone seems to have struck the State
0 near West Point. where the destruction
owas terrible. Every business house was
r- swept to the ground. The college there
a was a mass of ruins, the churches have
I. met the same fate, and three-fourths of
it the houses of the town are wrecks.
r- The storm struck about 8:30 o'clock,
and the people were glad to esca:e with
their lives. Many got out in their night
clothes and saved nothivL else. Rich
t- and poor alike are sullerers. Strange
to say, only one death iN reported -a ne
le gro, name not ziven. The citizens met
is today and issued an appeil to the public
for aid. The appeal st.ates that great
t sullerinig is reported from the country
outside the city, but no detail-i are giv
en, and there are no indications that the
ik reports, except Odessa, a small place in
u- the country, where it is said six people
ls were killed, are true.
r. From Laurange is reported great
. damage In the lower part of Troup
re county. The path of the cyclone was
st 200 yards wide, and every house for
some distance was demolished Several
people were imjured, but none killed out.
riLht. Many narrow es,.-apes are re
[r. ported. A party wis being held in one
ed house, when a giant tree was uproot.ed
by and crashed throuh the buildins1 split.

n- there was hurt. A baby not a ionth
x- old was carried from the house, a dIs
or tance of thirty yards, and for half an houi

b- At Peidlmont the destruction waf
er great, only t.wo houses in the little towti

is- name not given. Many were injured
re some fatally. Near Barnesville, An

it Friday also passed through the countief
es of Marion, Toomsuba, Keewane,

'ties. Many pranks of the wind's fury
are reported. Water was blown out of

d self was not damaged in the least. A
efino Jersey cow was blown one mile at
Pachuta and alight,ed on a Baptist
