yf TERRIBLE CALAMITY
Ir t TY OF GALVESTON TEXAS I
I DESTROYED

ho account of the awful onlnmity
i hafc visited Galveston Toxns 01 l
Eriday Saturday and Sunday art t
Biich as to almost stagger belief and
turn the heart sick with horror
cOn Friday morning the hurricane
that had been predicted as coming
across from Cuba and the West In
dies struck the fated city and the i
roaring waves and howling winds
windsteadily f
steadily advanced to the work ofI
destruction and death until 145 on
fliMonday morning whon the waters i
began to subside and the terrible
r extent of the calamity began to be
bej I
The water was at times as deep II
bias ten feet over the principal bus I
ness and residence portions of this
beautiful city To remain in the
houses was to stay in a death trap
J iiid to leave was to be instantly i
drowned or dashed to death by the
jangry waves Eternity alone will
disclose the full number of the
gad ris hundreds if not thou
VBunds of bodies were carried out
to sea by the receding waters
Millions of dollars worth of prop
I
erty have been engulfed beyond re j
oovery And where was once one i
sof the prettiest most thriving and j
iygubstantial cities of the whole
tpjouth now there is waste death
and ruin
rTo add to the horror all four of i
ijihp bridges connecting the city
with the main land were swept
swoptI
away the telegraph and telephone
yires are gone the gas and electric
flight plants were destroyed and 1
ijv prst of all the waterworks are a j
fctmiplete wreck adding thirst to i
fijrie many wpes of the stricken sur c
vIvors
vIvorsIn
In the presence of such an awful
calamity humanity stands aghast I
arid with uncovered hoad lifts its
f
eyes to Him that holds the winds
and the waves in the hollow s t HiS i
hand to Implore His protection and
fflllief
The news of this calamity was
flOBhod over the wires of this great
country and the touch of the sor
rows of our brethren caused an in
stantaneous response from the
hearts and pockets of the people i
from the President down to the
humblest citizen and relief in every j
iprm is being rapidly carried to the j
stricken city and adjacent country
Kttho news still comes in that
Bother small places through Texas
Mild Louisiana have had their share
Of destruction and death but the
overwhelming nature of the disaster
at Galveston has dwarfed all else t
into insignificance
fHowever that djaolatod region
frill 1o looked after by the nwuJfenJ1
od tenderness of this great nation
All the great railroads and they 1
are the greatest Kutrerers in loss of
property are transporting relief
supplies free of charge j

EVERYBODY BEADY
Everybody has been looking for
ward to our Street Fair and Carni
val as the great event of the year
and has been making preparations
accordingly
The committees have finished all
arrangements and all that remains
to be done is to erect the booths
etc These can be put up in short
order as was done last year
The experience of the past has
brought good results and everybody
is now ready
readyTO
TO BE CARED FOR
When we had our Street Fair last
year the articles which were exhib
ited at the Court House were left
unguarded and uncared for with
the result that a good many things
were carried away and the owners
never knew what became of them
I
Eatables wore consumed likewise
Exhibitors this year may rest as
sured that their exhibits will be
taken care of and returned to them
in good shape
