Thirty People Were Killed and SO Se riously Injured Nearly 50 Houses Were Demolished Hillsides Cover ed With Debris of All Kindt Inter, mingled With Bodies of Animals and Human Beings Bodies of Two Children Blown Two Miles. A tornudo wrecked Zephyr, a village In Brown county, Texas, early Sun day morning, killing more than 30 persons, seriously wounding 50 and hurting a score of others. Extreme darkness made the catastrophe awful. The known dead: C. A. Cabler und wife; County Clerk Thad Cabler, wife and two children; C. M. Carter, wife and child; Gertrude Houston, Oscar Ware, wlfu and three children, M. G. Simmons, wife and three children, Mrs. W. A. Ramsey and child, B. F. Brown and wife, Mrs. Tom Hart r.nd child. Gibson Clols. Among the seriously Injured are: Robert Campbell and wife and fout children, Dr. Wreen and wife, Profes sor Cloyes and family, and Captain Collier and wile. The storm formed half a mile south weft of Zephyr and swept down on the village, cutting a wide .swath direct ly through the residence .-aid ousiness quarters. Nearly 50 houses were demolished. Lightning struck a lumber yard and started a fire which destroyed an en tire business block. No effort was made to light the flames as the earn ol the dead and woundcl demanded all attention. A section hand pumped a handcar to Brownwood and spread the alarm. In two hours the Santa Fo railroad was speeding a special train to Zephyr with nine surgeons and a score of Brownwood citizens. Hundreds of persons In the country around Zephyr sav?d themselves by taking refuge In storm cellars. The big stone school building and two churches at Zephyr were razed. Daylight found 16 surgeon working on the wounded. Brownwood hurried her second relief train at noon, load ed with provisions, clothing and neces sary articles ar.d forty nurses. At night three persons were still unaccounted for. Two children were found dead two miles from Zephyr, having been blown that distance. While the tornado's path was 300 yards wide, the twister swept the earth for a distance of only about a mile. Its fury was more terrific than any previous tornado experienced In this region. When the first relief party readied Zephyr a desolate scene awaited. The hillsides were covered with debris of nil kinds intermingled with bodies of animals and human be ings. The ruins were dimly lighted by burning buildings and the cries of the wounded, rising above the shriek ing of the dying storm, dii-pcted the rescuers In their work. Human bodies were found twisted about trees and distorted In Incon ceivable shapes. Survivors, mad with grief and terror, walked the streets almost nal:ed crying for lost relatives.

After Count Zeppelin Had Covered 860 Miles In 37 Hours. Goephlngen, June 1. After covering a distance of about 850 miles tn 37 hours. Count Zeppelin's new airship, on Its return trip from Bltterfeld to Frledrlchshafen, came to grief In an open field near here. In maneuvering for a landing the airship came Into contact with a tree and Its position Is very dangerous. The damage to the ship is more se rious than at first thought. A cursory examination directly after the acci dent showed that tha envelope had been torn, and It was thought that In jury could be repaired and that the party would proceed at night. A more careful exanilnrtlon, however, disclos ed the fart that the propeller was broken and considerable time must elapse before the Journey could be continued. The position Is unfavorable, the ground being hilly. The bow rests on the ground, while the stern Is about 65 feet In the air. A strong breeze sprang up toward evening, causing no little anxiety for the safety of the airship, which It was feared would be wrecked should a storm come up during the night. After considerable labor and with the assistance of seme of those who had gathered at the scene of the acci dent, Count Zeppelin was able to shift the position of his airship a little, and thus give better protection from the wind. That the collision was a heavy one Is Indicated by the broken and bent strips of aluminum lying about the ground and the half split branches dangling from the tree trunk. Enormous crowds soon as sembled and It became almost Impos sible for vehicles to pass along the public highway. COMPARISON OF BRAINS Prof. Wilder Says That of the Averags Negro h Liphter Than That of the Average White Man. New York, June 1. A national con ference In the Interest of the Ameri can negro was opened in the United Charities building In this city by Pro fessor Burt G.

Pro fessor Wilder exhibiting several brains, including those of nn orang outang, an unscrupulous politician, an illiterate colored janitor and an emin ent mathematician, made some Inter esting deductions to the conference. The brain of the average American negro," ho said, "seems to be about two ounces lighter than that of the av erage white man. and probably there occurs more frequently than in the while man less development of the prefrontal lobes. These two condi tions render it likely that the whiter, will remain the dominant race. But there are individual exceptions to the above gereral conditions of both kinds and anioiic both races."
