forty persons have been killed and

impossible to gol much information as

are filled with men and frightened

certainly appalling. As nearly as can
be learned seores of houses have hoon
ontircly wrecked. Twelve physicians

Sr. Ci.ot i), MINN, April l?. - A few
minutes after 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon the skies became overcast with a
dark cloud, and a great black mass
rose over the hills southwest ol' thc
city, and coming with terrible velocity
to tho western outskirts in a direct line
for tho Manitoba freight yards. The
clouds hung low, and rolled over and
over liko smoke over a.hattie Held, and
were accompanied by a loud roaring
sound, that re-einbled a conflagration
in ils fury. The cloud was funnel
shaped, and the point dragged along
the ground like Ibo tail of n hugo a ria!
beast, lashing everything thal came in
its path into atoms. The citizens bad
hardly time to flee lo their collars and
seek other points of refuge before a
whirlwind was on thom nod tho air
filled with Hying hoards, shingles,
bricks and other debris, thal was
strvwn ?iver the country and piled in
promiscuous heap-, li caine from tho
southest and moved in a northerly
direction until il reached the river,
w here its courx? was diverted and I<>1
lowed thc river banks mn il il reached
Sank Rapids, where it diverged to thc
loft, passing directly through! tho cen
tre ot that town.
The Utmasl excitement prevailed.
Women and children fled from their
houses and rushed aimlessly about in
thr midst of thc dark cloud of dual and
an avalauce of hoards and brick. Men
lost I heir presence of mind mid stood
in silence and inactivity in thc presence
of tho wind demon, lt was hardly
noticed before it was oil the eily in all
its fury, and the people were not
warned of their danger before it was
upon them, and they fell like grain
stalks bet?re, thc reaper's sickle.
Tho portion of St. (?loud struck by
the ovolono was tho southwestern sec
tion, and was the residence portion
occupied by the laboring class of
people, the majo i i ty of them being
foreigners employed on the railroads.
Their dwellings were light built
houses and became easy prov to thc
monster that had 80 viciously pounced
upon them. They were Uko cockle
shells in thc grasp of the whirlwind,
and were picked up and tossed in thc
air and rent into a thousand pieces.
The earth was plowed up in the linc of
the cyclone, and the path over which
it passed, to a width of nearly a quar
ter ot a mili!, looks as though it had
been upheaved by a terrible volcanic
eruption. It had hardly begun ils
terrible work before it was finished,
and the scene that greeted tho eyes of
those who had escaped its fury was
ono that caused ibo stoutest heart to
shudder. The cries and shrieks of the
wounded rent the air, and tho ground
was strewn with (he bodies of Ibo
dead. Among them wore stalwart
men, weak women, and weaker child
ren. Thc citizens almost to ?i mau
rushed to (he demolished districts, and
summoning physicians began (heir
work ot rescuing ihoso who were still
living from beneath tho piles of dirt
and fallen buildings.
SAUK tlAPIDS, MINK., April l?. - The
cyclone struck Ibis city shortly aller I
o'clock yesterday afternoon, (ind in
just six minutes the best ponton of tho
town was in ruins. Not a single bil i
1)083 house was left standing on Main
slreel. Many residences were demol
ished. The wind came from tho
southwest ami swept everything he
fore it for a with li of about blocks.
Tho court-house is now n heap of cms,
and sevornl county officers are killed.
The Union school-house, the Preshy
teriau and Congregational churches,
tho postofficc, a flour mill and a largo
machine shop wore all converted into
kindling wood in less l'une ;han it takes
to loll it. What was once the centre
of tho town is now covered with
debris -timoor, doors, pieces of furni
Ivie, etc. Only the City Hotel re
mains intact. Tho Northern Pacillc
depot is literally blown away and a
largo number of freight cars over
turned upon tho irnckfl.
Scarcely a vestige of any of tho
wrecked Structures remained intact.
Tho ground is covered with all kinds
of timber?! promiscuously tangled to
got lier, ti Iscslimatod tlmt 400 struc
tures (all traine) wore blown dow.;
and thc neat ami costly Manitoba
depo! waa unroofed ami wrecked, Uni
alne.st entirely cutting oil' telegraphic
communication. The only building ol
any consequence asido I rom (le- depot

badu warped and twisted. Tho small
residences were most I \ occupied by
foreigner', who-O nana , ii hm beeil
impossible lo secure with any degree
of neon ruo v. Tue money loss is dis
proportionately small, li in estimated

Tlie loree ol tho -lorin was sa. ii ni
