TALES OF THE TORNADO.
QUICK AND TERRIBLE DEVASTATION
CAUSED BV THE WINDS.
Cartons Freak Wiimght by the Lee 8am
mlt Torniwlo Ct Ickens Picked Clean
Hoosea Completely Destroyed In a Quar
ter of a Minute.
The premonitory symptom of the birth of
a tornado is a violent agitation among cer
tain low lying, mens ling black clouds, from
which protrudes, as the upshot of the strug
gle, a funnel shape 1 appendage, which de
scends more or loss r ipidly toward the earth,
and begins its career of mischief the moment,
but no sooner than, it touches it Lifting
alternately and dropping, and swayjng with
a slight tagzagging movement from side to
side, the dusky v&pcrous sheath, concealing
the gyrations of a v. hirlwind terrifically au
dible from afar, advances with a rapidity
leaving scant time for thought or flight. The
"funnel cloud" inclosing the Lee Summit
tornado made its appearance about 8
p. ru. on May 10, 1879, looking like
a large elephant's trunk with the small
end pointing downward. Another observer
compared it to an im nense serpent hung tip
by the head and wri- bins in agony, its tail
curling and lashing as if actuated by the im
pulses of a living boiy. It would rise, fall
and careen from side to side like a balloon.
The roaring was inteise, and could be heard
at a distance of seventeen miles. A gyratory
motion in a direction contrary to the hands
of a watch was distinctly visible, and the
cloud, as it approach d boiling ftnd twisting,
presented a frightful appearance. For
twenty-two miles, however, it traveled
harmlessly in the air at a height of several
hundred foet; tlieu struck the fertile plain
of Missouri at several distinct intervals, leav
ing at each swoop a track of devastation
515 feet wide. Tie gaits, where the
cloud had temporaril; retired upward, were
altogether untouchw,, and tornadoes have
been known to deteend just low enough
to reap away the summit foliage of trees
without hurting an yt ling beneath.
The inmates of Dr. Donnington's house at
Lee's Summit emergid from the cellar, to
which they had retirnd on the approach of
the storm, to find that their habitation had in
the meantime twirled rotmd as if on an axis,
and broken into kindling wood. Their ears
had told them nothing of the catastrophe.
The crash of falling timbers was completely
masked by the hoarse tellowing of the tempest.
A surprisingly minute activity was displayed
by it. Clothes and bed linen looked as If
some person out of pi re mischief had care
fully torn them into small strips. Several
chickens were completely denuded of their
feathers. An iron bound trunk in Mr. Thad
deus W. Warden's house was torn to pieces,
and the lock found sti 'king in a rail, half a
mile to the northeast, rhotograpbs from an
album which the tmn r had contained were
carried four miles, and a receipt for lumber
from Dr. Donnington'i hou was recovered
from a distance of forty miles. Mrs. War
den's long hair was partly cut, partly torn,
from her head, twisted into a rope, and laid
a yard or two from wiiere she stood.
Some singular "freaks" of the wind are re
corded. A carpet waf. taken up tin torn from
the floor to which it was securely tacked,
feather beds wore rippsd open, a sewing ma
chine was broke into tnlf a hundred pieces.
flie six fragments of a massive iron kettle
wore dispersed in as many different direc
tions, a dog was carri d 200 yards and found
dead, with liis head an i shoulders driven into
tho ground. A heavy lumber wagon was
lifted over a corn Ct Id, HXJ feet across, and
deposited intact on tin other side, while an
adjacent house was, rithout injury, moved
six inches from its orifinal position.
Mr. Quisscnborry's house, on tlio other
hand, was struck as if by a cannon shot, and
completely-wrecked, a id the debris of Mr.
Warden's dwelling wa$ strewn over an area
of five square miles. Human life was not

their eyes and ears cled, hair matted, some
times their very garments stripped off. And
all this havoc was wro iht in scarcely more
than a quarter of a minute. The previous
calm of the air was re-established within
twenty seconds of the instant when it was
first disturbed. t

The "Delphos tornaJo" rivaled the Dav
enport brothers in its capacity for untying
knots. In the house o.' Mr. McBride was a
strong trunk; clasped t nd bound with iron,
in which $4,000 in greeabacks was deposited.
"The money was tied up in $j00 packages,
containing smaller packages of $100 each,
which crossed each otb yr at right angles and
the whole was firmly bound together by
strong cords; thou all the large packages
wore tightly bound together and placed in a
bag, which was secure.." tied, deposited in the
trunk and locked thet eln. After the storm
all but $500 was picked up in separate bills,
scattered hore and thorn throughout the rub
bish. This tornado repeattd the fowl plucking
feat of that of Lee's Summit, which had
been earlier performed by the Snow tornado
of 18S7, and by the Maj field tornado of 1S43.
In this last storm a floe;, of Cfteon sheep had
their legs broken, and some their entrails
torn out by the force t f the wind! But we
should vainly attempt o enumerate all the
fantastic details of su -h occurrences. Mr.
King's house, near Del; Uos, was planted en

An Eye to Bqilne
. I was riding np Fifth avenue alone in a
hansom cab. My study of the sweet bou
quets of babies and nurse maids along the
way was rudely interrupted by a voice above
"Will you please shove aside that blind P
I looked quickly up and discovered a small
blind in the roof of the cab, covering the
little peep hole through ' which the man on
the seat can look in. ' Reaching up and draw
ing the blind aside I saw looking down at me
the twinkling eyes of the driver. These cabs,
it remembered, are open In front, except f or
two low half doors that cover inly the legs of
the inmates. Couples may therefore hold
hands behmd the screen unseen by anybody
save the driver looking down through the
roof from bis seat high up behind.
"I thought," he said, "you wouldnlrcare to
hide away in there. The young ladies always
forget to put the blind back where they find
When I got ont from the cab I asked the
driver if he really bad put in that blind to
oblige his girl patrons.
"Certainly," he answered, touching bis
hat "I found that a feller wouldn't go
round the park with his mash, because he
alius thought we were peepin' down at his
lallygaggia'. Says I, 111 fix this, so I had
the blind fitted in. It wasnt a week before
ten pairs of 'em knew the gag. Dont give
me away to the other cabbies, will yer, be
cause they'll all be doin' the same thing and
I wont have any bulge on 'em. They're
doin' their best to find out why I get so much
of the park business, but never suspect the
truth. I'm spin' to have blinds rigged on
the front doors so they can be pulled up over
the window when it's let down. That'll be
great for rainy days. The four wheelers do
the most of that business now, but 1 think I
can fix it so I can get my share of the trade.
Good day, miss; there's on of my regulars;"
and with a crack of his whip the cabby
scooted diagonally across the avenue and
picked up a very young and very sweet pair
of lovers. As he drove off toward the park
he looked over his shoulder at me and slowly
shut one eye. If the blind cab isnt a clever
conjunction of business and sentiment, where
wfB you find it? New York Sun.

"Indeed I do," said Athelwald. speaking
in low, earnest tones, as a man communing
with his own thoughts. "Yes, I do love
dogs. In fact, wherever I go I am fond
of them. But I like a shy, coy, shrinking
dog, who hies away to the dim and shadowy
recesses of the umbrageous woodshed when
he hears the footfall of the stranger, and can
only be won to sociability and intimacy by
love and kindness and patient pleading. I
like not and cannot learn to love the bold,
forward mass of canine insolence and pert
obtrusivoness that comes sneaking out from
behind the lilac bush when one is half way
between the gate and piazza, and nestles up
to a stranger with all the easy freedom of an
old acquaintance, and dracs one all over the
lawn backward, with no thought of one's
comfort or dignity," and with a drv. convul
sive sob that died away in his throat he
walked bitterly toward the gents' furnishing
department, and the old bookkeerjer noticed
with sorrow, not unmixed with grief, as the
young man turned away, that his fawn col
ored trousers had been deftly repaired in the
postern gate with irregular patchwork of

Last week I saw an incident that forcibly
illustrated a growing tendency of "our girls."
An old lady, but a portly one. heavilv veiled.
came into a street car and set a huge, well
ailed basket down. It chanced to intrude on
the toes of a superbly dressed young woman
opposite. She immediately was inditmant
She abused market baskets roundly, and
then abused the people who carried them.
Then she allowed the opinion to escape that
people who carried baskets had no business to
rids on street cars. And then she decried
against poor people being allowed to ride in
every street car. Some cars should be re
served, she said, for genteel folks. The girl
mortmed everybody. The veiled lady said
not a word until both motioned the driver.
and the car stopped. "Hold on! Take that
pail," said the eldor lady. Har tormentor
looked a moment in astonishment "Take
that pail, Martha, and carry it home; this
oastet is all 1 can manage," repeated the
elder. "Why didnt you tell me who you
were, mothcrP asked the crestfallen girl, as
she picked np tho basket and went out. while
the occupants of the car giggled. St. Louis
Moody's Collection on a Train.
Whilo Mr. Moody was coming up from
Wallula a citizen of that place began talking
with Mr. Hunt in the presence of the evan
gelist about the new churth being built in
that railroad center, saying, among other
things: "We lack $100 of having money
enough." "Well," said Mr. Hunt, "I told
you when you got down to the last $73 I
would give that sum." Thereupon Mr.
Moody said: "We ought to raise that $35
hore. I will give $5. How much will you
giveP he asked a passenger. "I will give $5
more," he responded, and in a few moments
$20 was raised. Thereupon Mr. Hunt called
his assistants, Messrs. Wamsley and Creigh
ton, from th- front of the car, stated the
situation, and - they promptly put up the re
maining $5. When Mr. Moody found that
the $25 had been contributed, he sang out

at the High School.
I dropped in at the exercises attending the
opening of the high school annex and the
manual training school the other night, and,
if the truth be told, I never listened to such
poor and stilted speeches. But there was one
effort that was a relief, from the intensely
amusing surprise it afforded. A young lady
was down for an address on "The High
School from the Student's Point of View."
I say young lady, for her name on the pro
gramme was prefixed with a Miss.. She was
in reality a very young miss, not long out of
short dresses, and with all the youthful inno
cence of look which is so charming. She
stood blushing until the applause subsided.
Then she bravely began her address with the
astonishing sentence, "The-great question of
the age is, How shall we educate 'our chfl-

the manual training school teaches, or is it
