The ehange in the time table last Sunday doe* not nnit Lamar a* well as the old time of the arriyal of trains, the Denver train in the morn ing did oat change, the New Mexico train goes weat about an hour earlier, the east bound morning passenger is doe now at 8:53. the New Mexico train ia the evening also goes east later. Wednesday afternoon a few mm oles past four o’clock, while the wind was blowing bard from the east, a whirlwind came up from the south cross cutting the east wind, it was larga and carried the sand and d««t in a great dark mass, it struck the soatn-esst part of town doing no damage until it reached the residence of Mr. Joe Conwell a block south of the railroad, a house of three or four rooms with a porch in front. The force of the whirlwind must have centered there as the house was taken bodily from the fonndatiou in the air, turned upside down dashed to the ground a mass of kindling wood, there was not a piece of timber or board in the building bat what was split or broken, the furniture, dishes and everything in the house except a rocking chair was either brokeu or damaged. When the whirlwind struck the honse Mrs. Conwell was standing just inside the kitchen door, and Mr. Heaton was painting some of the in side woodwork, it was so sudden and unexpected that neither had time to think and were not aware of what had happened until Mrs. Conwell found herself standing out doors slightly bruised on the right shoul der but not seriously hart. Mr. lieatoo was not so fortunate he fell in the mass of rums and received a out over the eye and one to the side of his nose, neither being serious or to cause him much inconvenience. It was a remarkable escape, and the wonder of all who viewed the wreck how they escaped with their lives, after leaving the Conwell place the wind ripped off a few boards of the carrell ia the rear of the blue front stable, then crossed the track and struck W. L. Morehouse’s lumber yard scattering the lumber and do ing aorne damage by breaking and splitting board*, from there it struck Hanson’s blacksmith shop and tore hie sign down breaking it into, the wind then passed north to the timber. The strange part of the destructive whirlwind is that it came from a clear sky, there were at the time a few flakey clouds in the west, but none in the east or in the south where the whirl came from, another strange feature is that the whirl cut acres* the direction of the wind. Many of oar citizens saw it coming but thought nothing of it, as whirl winds are common in this country and never before known to do any harm, besides the whirl passed sev eral houses directly in ;U path doing no harm. Mr. C. C. Huddleston watched it a* it struck his house and said it appeared to have no more force Fthan the whirlwinds common in this country, and thought nothing of it until he heard the crash of Mr. Con well’s residence. Mr. Sol. Coxbead has been a resident of this country for a number of years and says he never knew of a house being blown , down here beforo, • j Herberts for Windmills.
