The Sunday evening storm was more far reaching in its destruction than It was possible to Imagine' until yes terday morning, when a daylight view of the situation could be had. The main Items about town were fairly well covered in yesterday's paper, but the reports from the farming districts did hot begin to come in until yes terday forenoon. As much or more damage occurred south of town as within the city proper and there wa scarcely a rancher in the path of the storm who did not suffer more or less loss. The sunt total of it runs up Into the thousands of dollars and it is by all odds the hardest and most de structive storm that ever visited this . section.

Hundreds of trees were blown down and there Is hardly a small ditch in the Tempe section that will carry a head of water, for the reason that many of the trees blown over were on the banks of the ditches. W3en they went over they took anvwhere from one to a dozen square yards of dirt with them, and in many cases this represented Just so much ditch bank. More than one road wns impassable yesterday and the carrier on route No. 1 found it Im possible to coA-er certain parts of the route on account of the trees across the roads. A brief resume of the damage In curred in the farming districts fol lows: Chris Jacobsen's hay ware house near the double Butte was to tally wrecked. Not only was the roof blown off. but the rafters were twisted and broken. That point marked the west boundary lino of the storm and the Tempe canal directly east marked the east line of it. . There was some wind on the east Ride of the canal, but not enough to seak of, and little damage was reported. fine of the Petersen windmills was bfown over and smashed arid a mill of Frank Fogal's suffered a similar fate. Steve Hughes' hay warehouse was totally unroofed and the ' tin roofing scattered over the ranch. The storm had with it the ctiaracterlsties of a cvclone, for not over a hundred yards from the Hughes warehouse the. Turkey Track Cattle company had was unharmed. a similarly constructed shed. This Lee Walker had a threshing outfit a few miles south of town. The men had laid off for the day and half a dozen horses were tied to a heafler bed. The wind overturned it, tangled up the horses and caught one under the bed. Several of thorn were badly skinned up. The Hermosa tract suf fered the loss of dozens of fine trees and the umbrella drive was almost ruined. 4- j been totally destroyed. The patch wa T ! twelve acres in extent and some 3n I ' crates had teen gathered. It -was (the principal ; remedies and reckoned as one of the best In the I substitute. ; , Tempe district and as many as 1SO0 more crates were expected at the least. Ten minutes after the hail storm laniled all that was left were the melons. The sight yesterday morning was a sad one.

Some of the producers are of the opinion, however, that the vines raised from the seed distributed this spring, do not produce as abundantly as they have during past seasons. The shipments are now being re ceived in Chicago in good condition, and prices from now on ought to be much better, as the California grow ers have practically finished sending AT THE HOTELS. The .

One of the greatest dangers to be encountered now. providing the rains (oiitinue, is from the aphis, which spreads rapidly in damp seasons. This pest, so far, has canted little or no trouble among the cantaloupe growers this season, all being particularly careful to destroy all vines on which they have been observed. By this means, the danger from the spread of the pest has been greatly reduced, and by continuing this practice it Is hoped that all serious difficulty will be avoided. A NEW PLAYHOUSE .

Mr. Buch anan reports the range as looking splendidly for this season of the year, and states that the desert has received a considerably larger portion of the recent rains than has the valley. .The hills surrounding his home at Desert Wells are well covered with green verdure, and there is plenty of feed there for the range fed stock. Mr. Buchanan says there is about five feet of water in his reservoir and he expects it to be full before the rains discontinue. wnen compieieiy iiueu, this covers an area of some sixteen acres, and will hold a year's supply of water for his stock. Mr. and Mrs. Buchanan will return to their home at Desert Wells today.

Mitchell of Eastlake park, has closed a contract with the Ravmond Whitiker Stock company for an indefinite engagement at Kastlake park. The company will arrive here on Thursday and it Is possible will give a performance that night. That is not definitely assured and th open ing may not take place until Monday night. July 20, but Mr. Mitchell hopes for the earlier opening if the company has no delays. Anyhow later an nouncement of dates will be made. The Ravmond Whitiker company is well recommended to Mr. Mitchell and he has every reason to believe It will prove to be a first class aggregation. one the people of Phoenix will be pleased to patronize all summer and as much longer as the company can be prevailed upon to stay. It has Just closed a twelve weeks engagement in Bakersfleld, California, where It play ed to good business. There are. fourteen stage people in the company. The leading lady is Margaret Pitt, who played an Im portant part in the original produc tion of Ben Hur in New York, and who has also appeared in many other notable plays in the metropolis. The leading man Is Raymond Whitiker, and the opening bill will be "The Christian by Hall Caine, one of the most not- . able stage successes of recent years. As will be noted the company is a large one, able to present first class productions and unless Mr. Mitchell has been poorly advised there is a dramatic treat In store for the Phoe nix people. What is still more to the point, Mr. Mitchell announces that if this com pany scores the success he expects it to it will insure the building of a new and thoroughly up to date and at tractive theater building at the park. This announcement has often been made, but always as a hope or a need rather than an assurance. Mr. Mitch ell says there Is no hot atr about it project this time. It is his desire to make the park a real attraction and build for permanency. If the Whiti ker company makes good, before its immediate engagement shall have ex Ipired Mr. Mitchell will have the con tractors at work on a new building which will be erected as quickly as possible. It will not be a mere re pairing of the old shack, but a new structure entirely, that will be com fortable, even when the cooler weather comes and may be a more or less permanent play house regardless of ;the seasons, especially througn tne fall until the winter season is iuny on. The need or sucn a du..o.iuk nas long been appreciated by the manage ment as well as the public, but there have been disappointments of one kind and another that have delayed the project which is now to be under taken vigorously if there is any en couragement at all.
