HONEA PATH HIT BY CYCLONE.
Much Property Damage in Anderson
County Town.?No Lives Lost so
Far 'as Known.
Anderson, May 27.?A cyclone of gigantic
proportions and revolving at a
terrific rate of speed, bur traveling forward
slowly, swooped down on the
town of Honea Path, this county, about
1.30 o'clock this afternoon doing con
siderable property damage.
Luckily there were no fatalities so
far as can be learned here tonight.
Honea Path is completely cut off from
wire communications tonight. Passengers
arriving here on the interurban
from Greenwood at 2.30 o'clock, who
watched the cyclone as it advanced on
urmoa Path from a noint two miles
JLXVUVM * t
south of the town, say that the cyclone,
in its usual funnel shape, came from
the direction just south of the city of
Anderson, and that it touched the
ground for the. first time in the business
district of Honea Path, smashing
plate gass fronts in the stores and doing
some ui J>milliners i/oiuugcu.
One side of the brick store room occupied
by the Latimer Clothing Company
was blown out. The steeple and
roof of the Baptist church was partially
demolished. The seed and outhouses
of the oil mill were turned over,
as were the smoke stacks of the mills.
Many sma.ii nouses m tut? tuvm ncic
knocked down. Bricks and sticks were
flying in the air and one man, a lineman
of the inierurban, was hit in the
head, causing considerable pain. One
or two automobiles and other vehicles
were overturned, throwing the occu
pants out and causing some injuries.;
Interurban Station Hit.
Terra cotta roofing of the interurban
passenger station was badly damaged,
while the roof on one side of the frame
warehouse of this road was practically
destroyed. This damage seemed to
Slave been wrought as an afterthought
by the cyclone, as after it had passed J
over this building, a gust of wind |
forming a suction of great strength
reached back and literally sucked a
hole at least twenty feet square in the
roof. It looked as if a projectile had
been fired through the roof from the
!. Freaks of the Wind.
Several freaks are reported. A horse
was blown against a box car on the interurban
yards, and was instantly
killed. A box car left on a side track
was picked up by the wind and hurled
over the derail on to the main line.
Then it was forced back at a terrific
rate of speed on to another side track,
jumping another derail, a thing which
is considered practically impossible.
So far as can be learned here, with
all wires down, the cyclone did no
damage before reaching Honea Path.
The amount of damage wrought be

addresses, spectacular parades
and scores of spcial entertainment in

The only discordant note was sounded
at the first business session or the "Veterans,
when hisses, finally drowned out
by cheers, slightly delayed Governor
Ben. W. Hooper, of Tennessee, in delivering
his address of welcome. ' The
Tennessee executive, wh.o is said to
have been the first republican governor
to welcome a reunion of Confederate
Veterans, disregarded the disturbance.
and was given an ovation
at the conclusion of his remarks
Throughout the day the influx of visitors
continued. Every train adaed
hundreds to the thousand already in

Southern beauties. These in turn acknowledged
the greetings and tossed
flowers to the old soldiers.

Interest in the program for the last
day of the reunion centres chiefly in
the veterans parade. This always has
been one of the most impressive features
of the veterans' reunions. Many

feeble to march in the ranks with their
comrades. Realizing this arrange

wish to participate in the parade, despite
their inability to stand the severe
strain. Others will occupy reserved
seats in the reviewing stands,

cheer ilieir coriraies as they pass.
The reunion will be concluded with
