past two o'clock Thursday afternoon,
doing much damage in the center of
tho city. A number of vehicles wero
blown over, and young trees torn up
by tho roots. The windows of tho

pelling u suspension of the sittings of
tho courts. Tho rain fell in tor
rents. The dispatch adds that isolated

that many persons wero injured.
Traflie In the streets was stopped for
two hours by a severe wind and rain
storm that passed over Paris Thurs
day afternoon. The wind blew with
hurricane forco and tho downpour of
rain was torrential. Much damage
was done and several persons wero in
jured by being struck by Hying debris.
Two hours before the storm broke tho
atmosphere gave indications of its
coming. It was dark and sultry and
tho clouds had a peculiarly lowering
appearance. Among the buildings
that stood In the pathway of tho cy
clone was tho Opera Comlque, the roof
of which was blown In. Most of the
persons injured were cab drivers.'
A reporter of tho Temps who wit
nessed the cyclono from the top of an
omnibus says that it did hot last for
more than a minute. He suddenly saw
what appeared to bo a tall pillar of
smoke advancing, and imagined that
there was a large fire. But almost
immediately he saw tho branches of
trees bnapped off and countless chim
ney pots hurled to the ground. Then
the storm immediately passed away.
Tlioso on the omnibus were untouched.
The west end of the city wholly es
caped the fury of the storm, but east
ward along tho river way much de
struction was caused. Between the
Pont St. Michael and Pont Neuf 40 large
trees were torn out of the ground and
blown Into the Seine. Many persons
who were passing ucross tho bridge? or
along the river front were caught up
by the wind and thrown into the river,
but so far as known all of these were
rescued not much the worse fo'r their
involuntary bath beyond being badly
frightened. Some of those in the path
of tho storm were dashed against
houses and injured. Many cabs were
literally blown to pieces, so violent was
the force of tho wind.
Lcndon, Sept 11. The Paris corre
spondent of the Telegraph says that
