(From the Greenville Danl gewOj
People inihis section are growing
nervous in ference to the frequency
of v1614nzt wind storms. Residents of
the county and city had scarcely ceas
ed talking about the terrible ruin oc
casioned by the recent cyclone, when
another one more fatal in Its results
swept over Greenville and portions of
Piekns. TJhose itizens who weie
awake at 12, o'clock on Wednesley

maniy rnsidents here were alarme(,and,
some gt up aind dressed, in order that
t'ey r ki be prepared for thy utmost
disaster. BA fortunately the wind,
which was from the northeast, soon
died a tayo an ordinary blast aid left
us unscathed. The first bad news from
the county was brought by a colored
mail carrier, The wind seemed to con
contrate its power on the places *f J.
11. Lenderman and R. C. Williman,
whose farms are in the same locality.
The outbuildings on Mr. Lenderman's
place were almost entirely swept away,
and at last accounts little, if aniy, of
his stock could be found. His dwell
ing was badly damaged, and so many
apple and peach trees were blown
down fi the vicinity of the well that It
was found necessary to cut them away
before water could be obtained. Mr.
Lenderman and his family were In
much danger and greatly frightened.
On the place of R. C. Williman a
cabin occupied by colored eople was
blown over. The woodwork soon
caught fire. All of its occupants es.
caped but a sixteen year ok! colored
boy, who was burned to death, his
charred remains being fonid next
morning in the ruins.
In other Parts of the lower portion
of the county, there are reports of
damage to fencing and timber, but in
the upper section nothing has bean In
jured.apparently. There is some com
plaint from Fickens iii regard to the
destruction of fences and timber.
Additional particulars of the~ sLtrn
increase the calamities r'esulting from
it. The stables of I h Cantreil,
who lives in Austin ~ idhip, were
unroofed, and fances ia id trees we
blown over. A number of line trers
(on the premises of A. P. Long, who
also lives 'in the lower palrt of the
county3, were blown dlowni. Gardens
a nd garden fences we! e much injutred.
In Pickenis county theO store and1( sta
