More Victims of the Blazing Prairies Scenes of Borror In tb Burned District Terrible Plight of a Young GirL ST. PA I,, Minn., April 6.The list of losseg by prairie fires in Dakota increases and the descriptions of hair-breadth escapes are very thrilling. In Yankton County alone the damage is placed at #150,000. Near Rapid City Prof. G. E. Bailey's ranch was destroyed. When a party of neigh bors drove through the blinding smoke to the rear of the house an appalling sight met their gaze. Standing in a little hollow below the ruins of the house was Eloise Madison, blistered and scorched and burned, with hardly a shred of clothing upon her. The poor girl must have been in the condition in which she was found for at least a quarter of an hour. Her clothing, save the collar of her dress, part of the stocking on her right foot and the right shoe, had been completely burned from her body, which presented an awful appearance, hardly a spot upon her escaping unbumed. Standing unaided and conscious of her ter rible condition, she greeted the first per son who came to her assistance with the ejaculation: "My God Can't you do something for me?" Strong men shuddered, and for a moment turned away, but for a moment only, when ready hands did every thing that could be done for her. Mra G. E. Bailey, in whose employ the young girl was, and William Ashton, the hired man, had a very narrow escape, and, as it was, suffered painful but not danger ous injuries. Mrs. Bailey says when the fire caught the dwelling house it blazed up like tinder and allowed them no alternative but to run for their lives. This they did, Mr. Ashton taking each of the women by the arm and starting with them through the smoke and flames. They had gone but a short distance when Miss Madison fell. The smoke was so thick that when they stopped to look for her she could not be seen, and, thinking that she had gone in another direction, they resumed their ef forts, to escape. After a severe struggle they succeeded in getting to the windward side of the fire and made their way to a neighboring ranch. At George Hunt's place the family had just seated themselves at the dinner-table when Mra Hunt saw sparks flying in through a crack in the kitchen. Seizing a blanket apiece the people in the house threw them over their heads and started from the building. By good fortune all succeeded in reaching a place of safety. For twenty feet their path was through a sheet of flame fifty feet high. Thousands of dollars' worth of property was destroyed within ten miles of Freeman. Thirty-two families lost their homes, only escaping partly clothed. Machinery, grain hay and a great amount of stock wer. burned. The unfortunate farmers are en tirely destitute and without food ox shelter, In Douglas County the fire was one of the worst ever known. Many farmers lost every thing and are homeless and destitute. The house of William Cline was burned, Mrs. Cline perishing in the flames. She was 70 years old, and was the mother of E. W. Cline, prosecuting attorney of Douglas County. At Ashton the air was so full of dust that a person could not see 100 yards distant. Several buildings in this town were stripped of their tin roofs, while numerous small buildings and fences were blown down. Near Oakwood lake lives Frank Goodfel low. He was away from home when the fire came. Mrs. Goodfellow and her three children herocially fought the flames for several hours, and then were forced to get down on their knees while the flames passed over them. Mrs. Goodfellow is so badly burned that she will probably die. In Brule County casualities are being re ported daily. Fully 100 families have lost everything, the loss reaching $150,000. Two women were burned to death near Cham berlain. It is reported at the latter place that the fire was started by Indians on the reservation. Crow Creek agency had a narrow escape. YANKTON, D. T., April 6.The stories oi the farmers who suffered'by the flames Tuesday show that it was no ordinary prairie fire. It licked up every thing com bustible, and grass and stubble and wood broke into flame seemingly without com ing in contact with fire. The combustion was almost spontaneous' in the dry and heated condition of the atmosphere set in motion by the terrible gale. The condi tions seemed Bimilar to those existing at the time of the great Chicago fire andthefirea in the Wisconsin woods, when the atmos phere was almost ready to ignite and burn. An intense electrical condition also pre vailed. All things considered, the visita tion was as remarkable as it was calam itous. TO HONOR WASHINGTON.
