LAST NIGHT'S STORM.
Wind Reached a Velocity of 42 Miles
an Hour and Much Damage
Unroofed buildings, uprooted and
twisted trees and broken down fences
in Walla Walla and the rural districts
was a result of the fierce gale which
swept over the valley early last eve
ning. The roof was torn from the
Kauffman .Meat company's slaughter
house east of the city and the fore
man's house was partially wrecked.
Mr. Kauffman estimates his damage
The Yenny warehouse in Baker
street was badly twisted and telegraph
poles and trees were knocked down
in that vicinity. The presidential
arch in Main street went by the
boards at 7 o'clock. Its destruction
was watched by a hundred people on
the streets. The debris was allowed
to remain in the street today.
At the corner of Pleasant and How
ard streets several huge balm trees
were levelled in the street and inter
rupted travel until this morning, when
workmen chopped them out.
Broken trees and fences are report
ed from all parts of the city where the
gale almost reached the proportions
of a cyclone. George LaDue residing
in Fern avenue had a narrow escape
from a failing tree. Several trees on
his place were stripped of huge limbs.

NEARLY A WRECK
Spokane Flyer Last Night
Struck Huge Rock.
HAD FALLEN FROM MOUNTAIN SIDE
Lay on Edge of Track and Ripped
Steps From the Train as it
The Spokane flyer out of Portland
bad a narrow escape from being
wrecked a short distance this side of
Bonneville last night by a huge rock,
which fell from high up on the moun
tain side in such a manner as to par
tially obstruct the track. The ob
struction was hid from the view of
the engineer by a small hi!! and h<
was into it before he had a chance
to slacken up. The engine cleared th,
rock, but a hob- was stove into the
smoking car and the steps on every
ear on that side were ripped off.
The rock failed to project far
enough over the track to derail any
of the ears, but the ripping sound and
terrific bumping caused a small panic
among passengers for a minute.
W. W. Robinson, traveling salesman
for Hexter May & Company of Port
land, was a passenger on the train
and to a reporter lor the State sman
this morning said it was a miracle
tiiat the whole train was not dashed
into the river, which runs close to the
track at that point.
"If ihe rock, which was as big as a
small house, had projected a few
inches further over the track, nothing
on earth would have saved the train
from being wrecked." Mr. Robinson
I "It projected far enough over the
; track, however, to rip a big hole in
! the smoking car and tear every step
from the train on that side. Tiie rock
( fell from high on the mountains and
I landed behind a small curve-, which
shut off the view of the engineer. It
was a very narrow escape for the train
which was loaded down with passen
Insanity Not Increasing.
"Insanity is not on the increase,
many people have been led to think,"
said Dr. William Austin Macy, super
intendent of the Willard Sta!e hos
pital, at Willard. N. Y.
"On th. contrary, the number of
people who lose their mental balance
i'mains about the same, in all the
old settled portions of the United
States. Many causes contribute to in
sanity in tin's age of hurry and ner
vous strain when the energies of men
are taxed to the limit. 1 should say
that worry and overwork are the chief
causes. About 25 per cent of the pa
tients sent to our hospitals are dis
charged as completely cured, and a
still greater portion are allowed to
depart who have recovered sufficiently
to be intrusted with liberty. There
has been in late times a tremendous
improvement in the methods of treat
men', of these unfortunates, and as
against the indifferences and neglect
shown them in earlier periods of our
history the generous aid now given
is sufficient proof that the world is
constantly growing more humane."
