Will Foot Up a Million Dollars.

Ont at Cedar Keys.
.Jacksonville, Fla., Oct. 3. The
West India hurricane struck Florida
Tuesday and though It lasted but three
hours at each" point visited, was tho
most disastrous storm experienced In
Florida. The damage to property In
the state alone will foot up a million
dollars. Fully a hundred lives were
lost and perhaps 10,000 people were
rendered homeless. The course of
the storm was from Cedar Kcya on
tho gulf const, north by north
cast to and through the thriving
town of Lako City. Through a path
fifty mllea wide, few houses were left
standing, tho wind at times blowing
at tho rato of one hundred miles an
hour, averaging 80. In this city, dis
tant from storm center-fully fifty
miles, tho wind' for a minute blew ono
hundred miles an hour and for five
minutes seventy miles an hour. In
Jacksonville scores of buildings were
unroofed and trees blown down. Tho
storm had the characteristics of a tor
nado. It skipped some places in Its
path, bounding over to others where
ruin was wrought Cedar Keys was
exposed to tho full forco of its fury.
There a score of fishermen on the
spongo banks were drowned and their
vessols were wrecked. A tidal wavo
visited tho town and inundated it.
During tho tidal wavo a flro broke out
and an unusual spectacle was wit
nessed of firemen fighting llamcs
almost shoulder deep In water.
Four miles of trcstllng of
tho Florida Central and Pen
insular railroad, entering tho
town xyas wrecked. LakeClty had almost
every tree in town blown down, and for
two days the streets were impassable.
Two people were killed a prominent
ilady, Mrs. Frailer, and a Negro boy.
Here many houses were razod, while
roofs of others went -whirling through
.the air. Lake City Is in Columbia coun
ty, which has great lumber interests.
-Half the yellow pine timber was blown
down and lumber and turpentlno men
lost' thousands of dollars, as the lumber
is badly splintered and will soon bo at
tacked by worms.
In Baker county, which adjoins Co
lumbia, not a score of houses out of a
thousand were left .standing. Grain

immense lumber mill of Epplnger &

cluding stores and residences, 'and
many peoplo wero hurt, though none
were killed, the reason being that they

the town. .jfc
At MacCleniPf, in tho same county,
tho same tale might be told.
Sanderson, a few miles distant, was
almost wiped out. All of tho men
employed In tho turpentine farms dnd
lumbcr.mills arc not only homeless but
without food and a famine there is im
pending. The prominent citizens of each of
these towns have organized relief com
mittees, and have Issued appeals to tho
public for aid.
Milliards, in Duval county, was also
devastated and people killed and
wounded by falling of houses upon
them. Each of theso lias issued an ap
peal for aid.
The storm did not touch tho orapfe
belt of Florida, but confinod itscft to
the middle section, where tho ckfe? lh-4
dustrics are lumber, turpentine, cotton
raising and general farmiug. Jming
as the storm did, just after harvesting
the people rendered homeless and

Friday evening near Arkie, Ma,
nearly five miles north of St.

man, presumably a tramp, entered tho

tho breaking of considerable furniture
tho man finally overcame Mrs. Bomley,
who was a strong woman, and beat her

struggle took placo are covered with
