Killed in Cyclone.
Tuesday, just alter dinner, Mr
Juliui Frenx of this city, received a
telegram from Brinkley, Ark., stat
ins that his brother, ChaiHe Frenr,
had been killed the night before in
the cyclone that swept Drinkley,
Ark. Immediately after receiving
the telegram, Mr. Ft ens left for
Charlie and Henry Freni have
been in the fish business in Drinkley
for some time. . They had started to
supper, but Charlie Frenz stopped in
the Foote Shoe Store to see some
friends. The Foote Shoe Store was
blown down, killing the proprietor,
clerk and Mr. Frenz. His brother,
noticing the approaching storm, had
gone on to supper, and thus narrow
lv missed the horrible fate. Mr.
Frem's body was found the next
day about ten o'clock, under the
mass of brick and destruction, so
horribly crushed and mutilated.
Mr. Frenr was born and reared
here in Hickman, and was a member
of one of the oldest and best known
famlies of this town. He was forty
two years old. He was a brother
of Julius Frenz, Henry Frenz, Miss
Matilda Frenz, and Mrs. Andy
Claywell, of this city. He had
been away from here for several
years, but has been a frenquent visi
tor since. His sister, Mrs Claywell,
was in Drinkley at the time of the
cyclone, visiting her son, who sus
tained a broken arm, but they escap
ed any injury in the storm.
The remains were received here
Wednesday afternoon, and funeral
services held Thursday morning at
ten o'clock by Rev. Turkington at
the home of Miss Matilda Frenz.
Interment was had. at the City
This is one of the saddest and
most horrible deaths known in this
town, and the grief stricken family
has the sympathy of the entire com
munity. The cyclone that swept Brinkley
was one of the most destructive ever
known in that state. The cyclone
struck there about 7 o'clock in the
evening, and while lasting only
seven minutes, carrried destruction
to the entire town. Every ouilding
and church excepting the Catholic
Church, were blown to the ground.
There were twenty-nine killed out
right, and the injured amount to
some two hundred or more. The
Catholic Church has been converted
into a hospital, and nurses and
physicians, from Memphis, and
other places have gone there in num
bers to aid the injured. The under
taking establishment was destroyed,
and coffins and such had to be pro
cured from Memphis.

The meeting has already taken on
large proportions, and the christian

and taking hold. The revival al
ready bids fair to take in the entire
