Chicago, Nov. 17.—The conflict of the elemente, incident to the exit of ytarm weather and the advent of wintei'a chiliy blaßtß, culminated today in one of the moat destructive and far reaching Btorms of the year. The ini tial battle ground of the mighty oppos ing forces, it appears, was near the little city of Redbud, Randolph county, in the extreme Bouthwest part ol Illi nois. Sweeping down from the north came a tremendous storm of enow, rain and sleet, which, encountering the warm air currents of developed three distinct cyclonic Btorms, diverging from a common center near Redbud. Taking a southeasterly course, one prong of the storm passed through Wettern Kentucky and Tennessee, leveling everything in its path. At Red Bluff, and only when Northern Altbamawaa reached, had it spent its force. To the westward' moved a second storm center, passing through Central Missouri, thence across Northern Kan sas, finally being lost in the m'otmtains of Wyoming. The third aim took a northerly course through lowa, veering to the weat into Nebraska, leaving a hopeless tangle of telegrapli wires in ita wake until it was impossible to reach any of the great cities west of Chicago, except by circuitous routes.
