Many of the best parks of the city
are located within the district covered
and at least two of these were wreck
ed. Hanscom park, situated near
where the storm originated, was
srreatly damaged and Bemis park, one
of the show residence districts of the
city, was struck with sufficient force
to practically wreck most of the resi
dences within its limits.
The temperature Friday and Satur
day morning hovered near the zero
mark, but shot up with remarkable
rapidity and this doubtless was re
sponsible for the condition of the ele
ments which brought on the storm.
That the situation Is very grave was
indicated by the action of Mayor Dahl
man in securing the aid of government
troops and the state militia. The re
cent mobilization in Texas took most
of the federal troops from the two regi
mental posts located near Omaha. Fort
Omaha, yestern headquarters of the sig
nal corps, waa in the path of the storm
and is believed to have been badly
wrecked. Only two com parries of men
are now at that station. Fort Crook
Is five miles south of Omaha and was
out of the path of the worst part of
the storm. One part of the area cov
ered by this storm is that located be
tween Cuming street on the south and
Ames avenue on the north and from
Twenty-sixth on the east to Fiftieth
street on the west. This is the most
thickly populated residence district in
the city and contains ten of the larg
est public schools In Omaha. Many
of the large churches also are in that
part of the city. Omaha university
was in the path of the storm and is
presumed to have been badly damaged.
Huge Property Damage.
Property damage at Omaha will
amount up into the hundreds of
The tornado swept in from the south
west and zigzagged to the northeast
over the residence portion of the city,
leaving in its wake destruction and
carnage from two to four blocks wide.
Fire sprung up all over this area and
added to the horror of the twister.
Firemen were unable to respond to the
numerous alarms and many houses
were allowed to burn to the ground.
The police were unable to properly
police the stricken district and the sol diers
from Fort Omaha were called
out. The tornado zone is now prac
tically under martiaj law.
Omaha's suburbs suffered heavily
from the storm Ralston, southwest "of
Omaha, was razed to the ground and a
half score or more are dead. East
Omaha, which felt the tall of the
twister, reported houses demolished but
no lives lost. Council Bluffs, Iowa,
suffered nine dead, a score 3V more
Injured and great damage to property.
The worst damage was done and the
largest toll of lives was exacted in the
western part of Omaha and in the vi
cinity of Twnty-fourth and Lake, and
from there north to Sixteenth and Bin
iey. This is the residence portion ard
the destruction wrought was well nigh
appalling. Whole blocks of homes
were picked up and dashed into a
shapeless mass. Street cars were hurled
from the tracks and demolished. A
moving picture show at Twenty-fourth
and Lake was destroyed. Ten dead
and eight injured have thus far been
removed from the ruins. About 50 per
sons were in the theater at the time of
the disaster and it is feared that most
of these are buried in the debris.
Bemis Park, one of the prettiest
residence, districts in Omaha, was
razed to the ground and fires dotted
the park, completing destructive work
of the tornado.
Among the show places of the city
which felt the baneful effects of the
storm was the Joslyn castle. The roof
was torn off and the trees and shrub
bery uprooted.
The convent of the Poor Clares, at
Twenty-ninth and Hamilton streets,
was unroofed and the grounds were
littered with debris. An unverified
report said that the Sacred Heart
academy, at Thirty sixth and , aBrt
streets, was demolished.
The storm so paralyzed the tele
graph service that no reports of the
disaster could be communicated to the
outside world.. The Omaha telegraph
offices sent their piled up messages
to Lincoln on an early morning train.
At 1:30 a. m. Omaha presented a
Borry spectacle as a result of last
night's terrific storm. From the Field
club, which is in the western part of
the city,- to the Carter Lake club, sit
uated at the northeast extremity. is
one mass of debris, from two to six
blocks wide. Federal soldiers from
Fort Omaha asisted the police in keep
ing looters and morbidly curious at
bay. The presence of the soldiers
gives the city .the appearance of be
Inr tinder martial law.
It 1 impossible at this hour to set

any accurate estimates of the loss In
life and property. One hundred dead
is a conservative estimate and that the
damage to property will run up into
the hundreds of thousands is certain.
The villages of Benson, Dundee and
Florence, suburbs of Omaha were
practically wiped out. Only the fact
that a heavy rain fell for half an hour
after the tornado saved the mass of
wreckage and many dead bodies from
being burned.
The Webster street telephone sta
tion, containing a score or more girls
was one of the buildings struck by the
storm, and in a moment it was twist
ed and torn. Several girls were killed
outright and many others were in
jured. Graphic stories of the disaster
reached Lincoln on an early morning
train from Omaha.
Superintendent Robinson, of the
county poor farm, of which the fjrst
damage was done, describes the situa
tion as follows:
"The storm came upc.i us from the
southwest. It was a black funnel
shaped cloud. It blew down both of
our barns and took the roof off the
engine house. Pieces were blown off
the roof of our sleeping rooms in two
places, but fortunately no one around
our institution was hurt."
J. F. Traynor. 513 North Thirty-sixth
street, rushed home to And his. house
in ruins. His wife, her aunt, Mrs. Ed
ward Baggot, of Chicago, visiting with
them, and his three children were in
the house, but only Mrs. Baggot was
hurt, how severely could not be told.
Mr. Traynor said:
"It came like a rushing and roaring
torrent of waterJ It came from the
south and passed right by us to the
east. I went to my attic window im
mediately afterwards and saw fires
bursting forth from houses along the
path of the storm. I could see five
houses burning at or.ce, three to the
south of me, one southeast, and one
northeast. It was a sight that we will
never be able to forget."
Many Killed in Indiana.

night had been identified today and

automobiles which were pressed into
service reached the devastated district
the injured had to be carried . two
blocks on "account of the debris, which
blocked the streets. The Root Glass
factory was demolished and the Gart
land foundry was severely damaged.
The glass plant employed 300 men and
the loss is estimated at $60,000.
The storm was accompanied by a se
vere electrical display and rain that al
most equaled a cloudburst. Crossed
wires and lightning started fires
throughout the debris, but tney were
quenched by the rain.

you don't fall for her when she pulls
