CYCLONE. A Frightful Calamity Befalls St. Cloud
Sauk Rapids and Rice's
A Cyclone of Tremendous Power Sweeps
Through the Towns, Destroying
AH in Its Path.
A DISASTROUS TOBNADO.
ST. CLOUD, Special Telegram, April 14.
S Cloud cannot longer congratulate iteell
upon being north of the track of cyclones,
for it was this afternoon 6wept by one of
the most horrible tornadoes in the history of
Minnesota. Sharp points were first seen tc
dart down from the clouds, and so far as this
town is concerned the cyclone had its com
mencement about 3 o'clock in the basin ol
the Masonic cemetery, forming' a whirlwind
here about a thousand feet in diameter. It
took almost every tree in its circle from the
ground or twisted it off at the trunk.
Great stones were torn up from the
earth and dragged along. Moving slowly
from here and confining itself tc
a space of 100 feet across, it passed north
east over Calvary hill, wrecking the Catho
lic chapel a nd shattering the crucifix. The
first house taken was Nick Jumemann's, and
it entered the city at John W. Tennford's
place,taking the rear part of the house, and,
crossing S Germain street, completely de
molished John Schwartz's large brick house.
From here it swept straight across the
prairie, scattering fifty or more smaller frame
houses like so many feathers. In most cases
nothing was left to mark the site of dwell
ings but the cellars. The prairies were
strewn with timbers, furniture and cloth
DAMAGE TO THE MANITOBA PBOPEBTY.
The freight depot of the Manitoba railway
was directly in its path, and portions of it
and the cars on the track were blown half a
mile. Long lines of cars loaded with freight
were blown from the track and the rails
wrenched from place. I passed the limit
of the town juRt west of Lieut Gov. Gilinan'
residence, taking part of his fence and kill
ing horses. It crossed the Mississippi at tlie
Sauk Rapids wagon bridge, taking the two
east spans. I here widened to GOO feet
Stanton's grist mills took the full force, ancl
were leveled. The cyclone swept from there
through the center of the town,taking the best
of the business .part of it, including Berg's
hardware store, Beaupre Bros.' grocery, the
court house and hotel near by, the public
school building, part of the brewery, unci
every important business house in the ity
except C. G. Woods' store. The village is
virtually wiped out of existence, four-fifths
of the buildings being leveled. The course
of the storm through S Cloud was wit
nessed by hundreds of citizens. There had
been short, sharp showers during the past
twenty-four hours, and a warm south wind
blowing at the time. The clouds were Reen
to form just southwest of the citydark,
overhanging masses. Then
SHABP TONGUKS OF LIGHTNING
darted down, and the terrible whirlwind be
gan its fatal course, passing along slowly
and majestically. Whenever any warning
could be given all escaped safely, but in
most instances nothing was known of the
approaching destroyer until its awful roar
was heard too late tor flight The part of
the town struck was that of the poorer resi
dents living in clumps of small frame houses,
often several families being in one house.
The men were nearly all laborers or railroad
men and away at their work, and only the
women and children left in the houses. The
fatalities in S Cloud, though great, are not
equal in number to those in Sauk Rapids,
but a complete list there cannot now be ob
tained. In every house almost all the in
mates were more or less hurt, and their es
capes from death were marvelous.

like a correct list of the dead and wounded.
It is an impossible task to-night Every
thing is excitement and confusion, and one
can hardly tell who was his next door neigh
bor. Thei Grand Central hotel at midnight
is filled with people discussing ithe awful
event, and rumors from the surrounding
country are coming in about disasters to
life and property, but little of a reliable
character, however, can be gleaned. Tom
Van Etten of Sauk Rapids, who weighs over
300 pounds, was picked up bodily and car
ried some 400 feet He was badly bruised,
but not seriously injured. was .eovered
from head to foot with yellow mud. The
depot sign, "Sauk Rapids," was ifound
at Rice's, thirteen miles away, and
also a basket full of law books
from the same place. Tha air was full of
flying boards and timbers at Rices, earned
by the cyclone from Sauk Rapids. Andrews,
employed as a clerk on the boarding car of
the Manitoba road, had his skull crushed in
by a heavy timber, and he was past all aid.
He was in the boardiug car, which was
standing on the track near the freight house,
with several other at the trine, and the car
was completely demolished and all of the oc
KILLED OB SEEIOUSLT WOUNDED.
Edgar Hull, the banker of this place who
was killed at Sauk Rapids, took out a $5,000
on his life in the New York Life Insurance
company about an hour before he left for
Sauk Rapids. The risk was written by
Halburt of S Paul, manager for that com
pany Minnesota and Dakota. Hull and
Halburt both went over to Sauk Rapids to
get here, and were walking along the street
when the cyclone reached there. Hull was
instantly killed Halburt so badly hurt that
be cannot live He is still alive, but has
not yet recovered consciousness. Hull's wife
Is absent in Grand Bapids, Jficb., and was
notified. M. Hale, who represents the
Cedar Bapids Pump company, went from
here to Sauk Rapids this afternoon. He was
at B. & Knowlton's residence, and got the
family into the cellar. He says they had not
descended to the place of safety a minute
too soon, as the house was raised off the
ground and carried away. All those in the
cellar escaped injury. Mr. Hale had a simi
ilar narrow escape in the Rochester cyclone.
His team, which had been left standing on
the street, was killed. Henry Gilbert, another
commercial traveler employed by H. C. Bur
bank of S Paul, had just opened his samples
and displayed them preparatory to doing
business, and was In C. G. Wood's store at
Sauk Rapids whsn the noise of the approach
ing terror was heard, and a hasty stampede
made for the cellar. Ihe store was badly
wrecked, but those in the cellar escaped in
jury. One of Mr. Gilbert's horses was killed
and another injured so badly as to neces
sitate killing it
The report that the little settlement at
Rice's Station, sixteen miles from here, had
been destroyed was incorrect, but people
there saw the cyclone pass by at a short dis
tance to the east Late last night S. 0.
Grper, traveling for Donaldson Ogden of
St. Paul, came from Rice's to S Cloud and
mtormed a PIONEER PKESS reporter that the
jyclone had demolished a house about four
miles ease of that station, where a wedding
party as in progress, and nearly all the
sruests were killed or badly wounded. The
news was brought into Rice's Station
by a badly scared boy, who was on horse
back. He was badly hurt himself, and said
that the cyclone struck the house without
the slightest warning. There were about
thirty persons in the house, and he was the
only one that was not seriously hurt The
bov said that nearly all were dead. Several
Citizens and a couple of physicians started
out to the place, where a horrible sight met
their gaze. The dead were strewn about for
a distance of fully 600 feet I was found
that sixteen were dead, and since then it is
said that six more have died. The details at
this writing are very meager, and cannot be
obtained, as the telegraph wireB are all
down. Dr. W. W. Day of S Paul was de
tailed to visit a house about a mile from
here to see a family that had been
injured. Their name was Junnemann. The
man was dead and the wife seriously in
jured. Five out of six children were badly
hurt S Boniface's hospital at S Cloud
was right in the path of the storm, and its
escape from destruction was something as
tonishing. A house on one side of it was
carried off, and another on the opposite side
of the hospital completely demolished, but
the home of the sick was not in any way in.

WONDERFUL AND THRILLING ESCAPEa
ST. CLOUD, Special Telegram, April 14.
The one once prosperous village of Sauk
Rapids, due north of St Cloud, is now the
scene of utter ruin and demolition. I is
reasonable to say that no town of its size
was ever devasted to the same terrible ex
tent. The pictute presented last evening
when the detachment from the Minneapo
lis physicians, accompanied by several
police officers and a representative
of the PIOXEEE PBEE S, reached
the scene, was one which certainly
bevond description. The earlier dispatches
irom the unfortunate city were by no means
exaggerations. Terrible as seems the. tale
which the telegraph told, it was not half re
lated. The loss of life, the number of in
jured and the loss of property was much
greater than the meagre dispatches late in
the afternoon would lead the sympathiz
ing people of S Paul, Minneapolis and of
Minnesota to believe. The death-dealing
elements struck the town at the northern
commencement of its business section, and
went through with such force that practi
cally nothing of the business portion of the
city remains to tell the story of its former
pride. The cyclone crossed the Mississippi
river at a point about one mile
the city, and its terrible ravage?
coveis a territory extending the whole
of the city, and leaving a width of about
fifty rods. The dead number between
twenty-five and thirty, while the injured
will probably reach at least sixty. About
one hundred structures, some of them quite
noble buildings for a town of the pretensions
of Sauk Rapids,were completely demolished.
A majority of them hare not one board
upon another, but were scattered to the
four winds. The detatchment of physicians
from Minneapolis was a boon to survivors oi
the ruined city. The corps was organized
under Dr. Kilvington, and consisted of Drs.
Higbee, Freeman, C. D. Allen. Lee,'Bunker
fichuley and Miller. The doctors were mel
b^ a gladened committee near where th
depot formerly stood. They were eeeortel
over the ruins of Broadway to theBeattj
hotel, which was one of the very few-largt
buildings which escaped the wrecking ele
ment The hotel was used as a receptack
for the wounded, and its inmates were .nn-
tiriug in their efforts to alienate the suffer
ings of those unfortunates who were brought
to the house for treatment
A tour of the stricken village revealed She
fact that no less than twenty-five persons
had been instantly killed, and whose bodies
were recovered from the mass of rains.
They were as follows:
JOHN RENARD, conntv auditor.
GREGG LINDLEY. register of deeds.
EDWARD HALL, banker of S Cloud.
GERTRUDE G. FLETCHER, visiting rela

HERMAN BEAGH'S two children.
Mrs. DEVIE E. ALBRIGHT.
A W. LAKE.
Mr. PAPENFUS, wife and two children.
Child of ABNER ST. AYR.
Theoe are several of the wounded who
will doubtless die. There are many persons
too who are missing, and who are supposed
to be beneath the deadly ruins, and it would
not be surprising if the list of dead would
reach thirty or thirty-five. The third
of S. P. Carpenter's children is mortally
wounded. The child is eleven years of age.
and had a large splinter driven through the
body. Mr. Hurlburt, traveling agent ol
the Mutual Life-insurance Company oi
New York, at 11 o'clock to-night was lying
in an insensible condition in the Beatty
house. He was riding with Mr. Hull, the
dead banker, when the latter was
killed Mr. Hurlbert's injuries are
about the heod and face, his arms badly in
jured, and his physicians expect that he can
not possibly survive until morning. The
prevalence of a terrible storm made the
work of looking for the dead and
wounded all the more trying,
and the storm finally became so severe thai
the grief-stricken, sad searcheis had tc
abandon their task, and the physi
cians of S Cloud, although hav
ing more than they could possibly
attend to in their own afflicted city, nobly
divided themselves, and seveial of them
hurriedly drove to the seenes of still greater
horrors in the opposite side of the river.
Their services were most certainly needed
for there were the wounded and the dying
who needed prompt and intelligent treat

ham of Anoka were also early on the scene.
A later dispatch announces the death of Mr.
SOME OF THE INJURED.
Among those who are injured as far as
could be ascertained in the confusion were

thought that he will recover.

EXTENT OP THE PBOPEBTY DESTROYED.
There are less than a dozen business build
ings left standing. The great majority of
the buildings destroyed were busi
ness structurea Th total number
of buildings demolished is upwards
of seventy-five. They represented about
$300,000. Among the principal losses
are the fine iron combination bridge
which spanned the Mississippi, and which
cost $30,000. This immense iron structure,
which was about 1,200 feet long, was lifted
from its foundation and broken into a hun
dred piecea The county court house was
completely destroyed. Not one piece of tim
ber remains on the other. I cost about
$15,000. The following is a list of the

A SAD BRIDAL DAY.
RICE'S STATION, Special, April 15.The re
ports of the terrible disaster that had befallen
a wedding party near Rice's Station, sixteen
miles north of S Cloud, last night, were not
greatly exaggerated, but proved to be cor
rect, except in regard to the number killed,
it having been variously stated that from
sixteen to twenty-two were killed, which
was in excess, there being, in fact, but ten
among the dead. All sorts of rumors and
stones concerning the affair were in circula
tion, but as the wires were down telegraphic
information could not be obtained. A reporter
of the PIONEER PRESS visited the scene early
this morning, driving from S Cloud, and
thence to the former site of the farm house
in which such disastrous and fatal termina
tion to the bridal festivities occurred. It
was owned by a farmer named John Schulz
and occupied by himself and family, consist
ing of his wife and four childrentwo
daughters and two sona The wedding of
his daughter, Louisa, to Henry Friday, a
young farmer of the vicinity, had taken
place during the afternoon, the ceremony
having been performed by Rev. Smith, the
Lutheran minister of S Cloud, assisted by
Rev. Henry A. Seder, a German Methodist
pastor of the neighboring village of Royal
ton. Nearly all of the residents of the neigh
borhood were present, and the festivities
were at their height when the dreadful
cyclone swept down upon the place without
scarce a moment's warning, and no time
was had by the unfortunate bridal party and
hapless guests to
SEEK A PLACE OF SAFETY.
The structure was almost totally annihi
lated, and every occupant either killed or
badly hurt The only ones to escape
were two children who were playing
in the yard, and who were fright
ened by the approach of the huge black
inverted funnel, and sought refuge under a
chicken coop. The coop was carried away,
and nothing left of it, but, strange to say,
the two children were not injured. Another
child, a boy about twelve years old, who
was in the kitchen of the hou&e at the time,
escaped without serious injuiy. but he was
badly scratched and bruised. I was he that
rode into the village at Rice's and gave the
information. Assistance was at once pro
caved and started tor the scene. The bodies
of the dead and wounded, terribly bruised
and mutilated, were strewn about the ground
for a distance ot several hundred feet The
wounded were first looked after, and every
attention given them.
WELL CARED FOR.
Snmp wfrp removed to convenient farm
houses and others were taken into the hotels
at the station, and given the best care that
could be had under the circumstancea Dr.
Rathbun, the local physician, had more than
he could attend to. and worked like a beaver
trying to alleviate the pain and suffering of
the wounded. Every assistance possible
was rendered by the people of the place, but
outside aid was impossible under the circum
stances, as there was no way of sending in
word to S Cloud. After the wounded had
been looked after the work of
GATHERING UP THE DEAD
bodies and conveying them into the village
was begun, lc was found, upon count, that
nine had been killed outright, or at least
were dead when the succoring party ar
rived. One lady. Mis Gaumiants, died after
being found, making the tenth victim. The
bodies were laid side by side on cots in the
little frame buildmg at Rice's that serves as
the town hall of the village, and this morn
ing the bodies were prepared tor burial,
which will probably occur to-morrow, al
though that has not been definitely arranged
vet Assistance was sent to-day from S
Cioud, three physicians and a corps
of assistants being dispatched on a
special train of the Northern Pacific
in answer to the appeal for surgical
aid. The pastor who performed the mar
riage service and his wife were among the
ead, but their little girl escaped injury, be
ing one of the children who sought a safe
place under the chicken coop. The other
pastor. Rev. Henry Seder, was bid.y
wounded, sustaining a compound fracture of
the thigh and a nnmber of severe cuts about
the face and head, .besides numerous bruises
on various parts oif the body. The groom,
Henry .Friday, was ikilled instantly, as were
the xaother and a brother of .the bride, but
the latter escaped with a few bad cuts about
the face and head and a broken collar bona
Her father, John Schulz, was badly hurt
about the head and had several*ribs broken.
It is Uaought.iiowever, that he will .recover.
