iences Bock Island and her namesake
suburb. South Rock Island, passed
through last night. A genuine cyclone
struck tb s section at 9.30 o'clock last
night and we may not only be happy but
thankful that we live today to tell the
tales of I;s queer and- alarming exploits
and the r laryelous escape of many human
beings living directly in its track. The
storm was a huge destruction dealing
freak. It seemed bent on coming as near
doing appalling damage as it could with
out doinf; it and it succeeded, for which
mercy lei us again remark that we are
thankful. Many have been unfortunate
especially in South Rock Island in the
loss of property but an A Runs reporter
found all the losers happy this morning
that they bad not fared worse and deter
mined to bear the measure of their lll
Eye witnesses to the storm's approach
and theru were many gravely apprehen
sive ones, saw an ominous cloud rise
rapidly in the northwest. It was about
9:30 o'clock and after much of the ter
rific electric disturbancearlier had some
what subsided. The cloud's approach was
heralded by incefstnt lightning and re
peated responses of thunder. Suddenly
a cloud equally as threatening rose in the
northeast. Rapidly they approached
each other, and as they came together
they whirled and dissolved into an im
mense fu Hiel-sliaped cloud that seemed
to dart toward the earth with tremen
dous velocity and then to rise again and
rapidly pursue a southeasterly course.
Thus it appeared to those who observed it
in the city. Acil:zen of South Rock Island
who saw its approach, says the funnel
shaped cloud was whirling from a north
westerly direction, and going southeast
when he saw it. He was (list attracted
by a roa-ing noise that sounded like a
railroad train running full bent over a
hollow culvert Oiberi who heard the
storm's a; iproach give a similar descrip
tion of tbe sound.
IN THE CITY.
The da nage by tbe storm in this city
seemed to be confined to a limited space,
the most serious losses being on Seventh
and Eighth avenues between Sixth and
Eighth ftreets. George Eizd had two
new barns and other out buildings demol
ished. The oilier sufferers from the wind
were: M. Mattes, barn destroyed; M.
Lemhurg's residence was picked up from
the foundation and letdown in a position
a few inches from its original place on
the foun lation. His barn and all out
houses W ire leveled . Carl Dabin's barn
was lifted from the foundation- and car
ried to tbe middle of Eighth street, where
l went to pieces. F. Fude says his ham
and outbmses will be used for kindling
wood. Mr. Whitman, a next door neigh
bor, cannot find all tbe boards of his barn
and other property. Carl Kuloph was
another unfortunate; the wind damaged
his rtsidt nee and outside buildings. Mr.
Secor's h-nise was moved from its foun
dation aid the barn destroyed. Goo.
Etzel flgiires bis loss, which was the de
struction of his barn and outbuildings, at
The following named were sufferers to
a more or less extent, all of whom lost
their barns and out buildings: U. Down
ing, Wm Nowack,"Wm. Lundust, Chris
Heidema i. The barn of Mr. Lundust
toDDled f 'Ver on the barn of Mr. Heide-
man causing a damage of about 100.
Carpenters are in dtmand in that vicinity
Lumber, shingles and other debris can be
found i r blocks away. I here was
noticed s- building in the line of the storm
which hud a bole in tbe roof some four
feet square and strange to say there was
nothing found in the loft in the way of
timber which could have made the dam
age. Weyerbauser & Denkmann did not
escape from the fury of the storm, lum
ber bcinj' scattered about the yard. Tbe
stack culled -Hell." where they burn
refuse, was thrown out of position and
pne of I he guy irons or stays Broken
This damage will be repaired at once and
did not prevent the firm from starting
fire in the same. The total loss in the
city will reach from $2,500 to $ 3,000 on
buildingi aside rom the damage to trees,
As stated before, the storm seemed to
confine itself in Rock Island to a tern
tory bounded by Sixth and Eighth streets
. . .L nu,
and Seventh ana runm auuw. udu
it ascended and leaped to a point just
west and north of the cornerof Twelfth
and Aiken streets '
IN BOOTH BOCK I8LART,"
where it descended again, and it hugged
the earth, traveling fn a southeasterly
direction until it reached the summit of
Brasher street hill, when it whirled and
proceeded due east until it struck the
pine trees in Cbippianock cemetery
These trees servetfto break its force, and
after it, bad proceeded farther east and
crossed Rock river it was less destruc
tive, though it did considerable damage
east of the river.
The first building struck ' was tbe brick
barn on tbe Case farm, a portion of tbe
roof of which was carried away. Then
the brick cottage of John Sigmund on tbe
west side of Twelfth street north of Aiken
was struck. The storm blew in at the
west window on' the second floor, blow
ing a window in the face of Mr. Sigmund
who was preparing to retire, got under
the roof and raised the entire south side
and earned it away. A number of win.
do ws were also smashed. Then the two j
story frame of Mr. Orrin Leonard, situ
ated on tbe knoll at tbe corner of Twelfth
and Aiken streets 6erved as a target for
tbe storm . Here it seems to have
SPENT ITS KURY,
Tor the house was almost entirely demol
ished.. It was unroofed entirely and tbe
inside turned into a whirling mass. Pars
titions between the rooms were destroyed
and the furniture was blown about from
one part of the house to another. Tbe
storm did not last more than two min
utes, but in that time Mr. Leonard and
his family experienced to the fullest ex
tent the terrors of a cyclone. Mr. Leon
ards two boys, narry and Scott, were in
bed on the second floor and they had
fairly to be dug out from among tbe mass
of plaster and furniture that fell on
their lied. They were not in the least
injured. Tbe remainder of tbe family
were on the first floor. Mabel, Mr. Leo
nard's daughter, who is suffering with a
diseased limb, was silting near the win
dow in the conservatory. Tbe storm
beat in the glass, and pieces of trees and
framework from the house were blown
into the room. Mr. Leonard threw him
self between his daughter and the win
dow and thus shielded ber until tbe
storm had passed. He then, got bis
family together, and taking bis daughter
on a cot, hurried to the residence of Geo.
Lamont, several rods east of the s'orm's
track. Tbe rain beat into the roofless
house and drenched the furniture.
It is impossible to describe the damages
done at Mr. Leonard's premises. His
summer kitchen was swept away and an
immense cooking range carried several
yards by the wind. His barn was lifted
up and set down again in a thousand
pieces several yards east, while two car
riages were battered to pieces by the
wind and scattered among the trees. The
horse was left standing unharmed where
it was hitched in the barn. Household
furniture and wearing apparel were scat
tered to tbe four winds, and Mr. Leon
ard's loss is almost complete. His house
is a wreck, and bis furniture for the most
part gone or damaged so far as to be al
most useless. It is estimated th-f $ 2,
000 will not more than cover his loss.
Sheriff T. S. Silvis has placed bis hand
some brick dwelling east of Mr. Leons
ard's house at his disposal, and be will
occupy it for the present.
The two-story frame with tower across
Aiken street from Mr. Leonard's house.
owned by W. C. Collins and occupied by
Wm. Blancbard, was more or less dam
aged, roof and, windows broken,
etc., while the splendid orchard on the
premises was leveled. Trees about tbe
brick country house of Sheriff T. S Sil
vis. on the hill cast of Mr. Leonard s
house, were uprooted, hut the house was
unscathed, though the barn is gone.
The roof of "Aunt Mary" Richmond's
brick cottage on Twelfth street south of
Mr. Leonard's house, was partly demol
ished, the summer kitchen was torn
away and the stove and a tab of clothes
found a number of rods east across in a
ravine. The cottage was considerably
damaged in other ways. Next east of
Miss Richmond's cottage is Rosw'ald
Richmond's elegant two-story and a half
brick. It stood the blunt of the storm
admirably, though a chimney was blown
down, corn cribs swept away and a wood
bouse destroyed. A barn was carried
away, and two horses in it scarcely
The next house south of Mr. Rich
mond's is tbe old Lloyd homestead owned
by L. D. Snider and occup'ed by G. W.
Shibley. Tbe house is brick, and is to
day without a roof, while the interior is
a mass of wreck and ruin. Tbe family
were Bitting on tbe rear porch when the
storm struck and thus escaped. Tbe
summer kitchen is gone. The barn, a
building 32x24 feet in dimensions was
lifted up and carried fifty feet, turned
around and set down comparatively unin
jured. A buggy and a road cart are gone.
There were three horses in the barn and
none of them were injured.
Mrs. M." Paulsen's cottage next south
was damaged somewhat but not seriously.
John Paulsen's house next was not badly
damaged, though windows were brokeu
and the outbuildings leveled or blown
The wind blew through the Paulsen
brick yards on the west side of the street,
tore boards off tbe sheds and fences, but
did no extensive damage.
Wm. Brasber's house at tbe top of
Brasher street hill, was the next point of
the storm's attack. The house is a twos
story frame; it was unroofed, and the
family were lucky In reaching tbe first
floor on their way to the cellar without
injury. The barn and buggy bouse were
blown away, and two horses, which were
in the barn, were not at all harmed
Blackberry bushes and Iruit trees were
levelled. The storm seems to have swept
directly south from the Brasher place,
passing through -
where over two hundred pine trees were
blown , down, the windmill destroyed,
and hay sheds demolished. A number of
monuments were .damaged, but none to
any great extent. Trees were blown
across the roads and walks in soch num
bers that it was impossible this morning
tb get through.
The storm completely destroyed tbe
buildings in Shibley & McCarthy's new
brick yards, entailing a damage of f500.
Three miles south of Milan buildings,
fences and trees were blown down on the
Wm.Wynes and Peter Fries farms, and
a horse belonging to Jacob Ginty killed
by a falling barn.
No adequate idea of the
.' , EXTENT OF THE STORM
can be gained without viewing the scenes
of devastation. Io addition to tbe de
molishing of the buildings, im
mensa elm trees, thtee feet in
diameter were torn out of the ground,
roots and all, enough earth clinging to
tbe roots in many instances to fill a cart.
It would be difficult to approximate tbe
total amount of the damage in South
Rock Island, but when it is considered
that beyond a few chickens no loss of
life or injury was suffered, tbe visitor to
tbg stricken neighborhood feels like con
gratulating the residents of tbe locality
that they are alive.
Mr. Geo. M. Luken, who lives one
mile and a quarter east of Black Hawk,
writes the Argus that the storm blew
down a barn on bis premises, unroofed a
corn crib and other outbuildings and up
rooted a number, of fruit trees and blew
down forest trees two feet in diameter.
There is a movement on foot to get up
a subscription for the families which have
fared the worst in loss of property, and
Rev. W. S. Marquis has volunteered to

if it would be deemed acceptable.

health, pure drinking water is
the first consideration. To get
it, in this part of the country, a
good filter is really necessary;
and the best filter is theoneyou
see here. It will pay you to
call and look at it.
It is made in three parts,
each easily detached, open to
view, as easy to clean as any
stone butter crock. The water
comes though perfectly clear
and sweet, and you can use ice
for cooling without having it
touch the water at all.
