He thus se cured a pretty sito for building, a tract 120 by 180 feet, and ho expects to erect thoroon a handsome modern homo for himself. But nn hour later it went ofi'tlie pillars and we found It dltlicult to get out of It. Not a siH-ond could be lost to gather anything, not even wraps. We lied to the barn, it larger building, which wo thought would stand, but soon It begun to fall, again we went out into the pelting rain. It cut like hail and the wind with re-ist-loss force drove us straight south 1100 yards through watorfrom ono to three feel deep whore, with great difficulty, we were taken Into a neighbor's hou-e. The dreadful memory of that walk, when none of us could be' sure that the rest of the party wero allvo, 5 i either blown away by the wind, or ! drowned in the ditches, cun never . leave lis. We baldly had a moment's rest here before the gallery across the front of the house blew away, and the roof went off. o.u-h with a terrific noise. We expected every moment that the S-. I house, itself would blow to piece-, as had the others near, and our little I family clung closely together that wo intgnl not no sopcrateu oy mo winu. but llvo or dio together. Those long hours of despair cannot bo described. ' Tin y seemed ages long. I prefer a i-yclono hereaftor. 'I hey havo long b -enllie dread of my life: they aio to bo preferred to a West Indian hurri cane; they aro at loast shorter. About 10 o'clock a lull came and tho neighbors camo to seo If any wero yet alive. Tho menof our party wentout to sea rch for dead or living. But tills was not to bo the end of our terrors on this eventful night. Tho strong south wind now sprang up and alarmed us almost as much as tho north wind had done, though it did not do the damage hero that tho north wind did. It truly seemed 'for somo time that no one would bo left alive and no timbers left. The men who were caught out In it said it was a battle fpr lifo to get home. Tho south wind did the dam age in Galveston. But it too quieted about 2 a. in. and the sense of relief was too irreat for sleep, even if there had been a dry place In the house io t' Mr. W. H. Barnes, stato secretary of horticulture, is in the city, looking after Allen county's contribution to tho Kausas exhibit now being collected for tho Pan-American exposition at Buffalo noxt year. While hero ho was shown a copy of a morning paper which said that ho said tho black birds in western KunsuB woro Injuring tho apples. Ho denied over having said anything of tho kind. "The noxt thing they will bo laying at my door, "ho said ton friend, "will bo that' I havo stated thut tho angle worms aro coming out of tho ground, climbing tho treos und worming tho upplos." Mr. Barnes onco lived In Allen county, having years ago been a resident of Humboldt. Hon. C. F. Scott, Re publican nominee for Congressman-at -Lar g e, will speak at Humboldt Monday afternoon, No vember 5th. Bleep, lloors, beds and all were wet. About twenty of us .vere in tho room, when somo one began singing that old familiar hymn, "Jesus Lover of my Soul," nearly overy voice joined in, it had new meaning to us now. "While the nearer wnters roll While the tempest still Is hlffh, Wo were homeless. "Cover my defenseless heart With tho shadow of thy wlnu." A now peace fell on that littlo party. When morning came it was tho lovely morning of this most lovoly South land. But It shono upon a homeless people, destltuto of food, of sholter, of clothing. Small wonder that tho peoplo wero dazed. It is said that tho dazed condition Is ono of tho followers of a West India hur- rlcano. Tho gardens woro ruined, tho ilowors and birds gone, tho pear orchards, which tho day. beforo had been bond ing with fruit woro now stripped of both fruit nnd leavo, an! whero a fow hours beforo had been homes were now a shapeless mass of Morrill tho IjIoii lli'itrtcd Thoy tell a story on the Bight Hon orable Mr. Morrill, lawyer. "Thoy" insist on not having their names pub lished, but they aro the whole neigh borhood. It happened Wednesday night as ho was coming home from making a fusion speech out in tho country. Ho had wrestled with the octopus, boxed with the red dragon, whipped tho dum my of Militarism and knocked tho crown off tho empire. No wonder ho saw things! As ho approached his homo on north Washington avenue ihe saw a light Hash and disappear in his home. Burglars ! He hurried across tho street, yelling at tho top of his lungs until the echo was hurled back from n elghboring houses. "Burglars 1 Thieves 1 Murder 1 Help 1 1 1" The wholo neighborhood heard and a pajama and robe de nult brigade came streaming from every direction. Morrill was dancing around his house and beforo anyone could do , anything ho tore oil down town to get tho police. He ran and brought a whole brigade back on a run. In the meantime poor Mrs. Morrill was alone in the houso shivering with fear and wondering what awful things this uprour portended. The daring husband had left her to tho mercy of the burglar. When tho wholo neighborhood and tho police collected Mrs. Morrill was hastily rescued from the house by a side window and then an assault was made on tho front door. No burglar was found. Matches wero scratched and a thorough search made In closets, under beds and under porches. Had thero been a dozen burglurs thoy conld all havo oscapod by tho back door. But thero were nono. It was tho workings ot an octlvo Imagination frosh from a fusion rally. It will require soveral days beforo tho echoes of Mr. Mor rill's whoops will dio away.
