Active preparations are still in progress
for the Twin City Fourth of July cele

the demonstration will eclipse anything
ever attempted hereabouts. Lists of com
mittees are being prepared to submit to
the Columbian committee at its meeting
at the rooms of the Cit' tens' Improve

there is every prospect that tbe event
will be one of which our people may be
proud. Committees on arrangement, on
the grounds and also on floats are already
at work, and it only remains for the live
efties to come forward with tbe funds
necessary to insure the success of the un
dertaking. That the money necessary
will be available there is no question.

The high wind daring yesterday after
noon and last night did considerable
damage in the way of blowing down
fences, etc., but no serious damage has
been reported from this section. About
midnight last night the wind reached a
gale and blew at the rate of 36 miles an
hour. It quieted down considerable to'
ward morning, but again sprang up and
blew a furious gale about 12 o'clock to
day, reaching a velocity of 48 miles per
hour. It is the strongest wind that has
been experienced here in some time, but
came in the form of a steady gale.
About 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon

near it at the time, although one citizen
had passed but a moment before.
