A Aeml offlrial Report of the Great Calam
ityAn Appeal for Alit
The following report by Slessrs Shalet
and Nlpher to the St Louli Chamber of
Commerce of their visit to the territory
swept by the recent tornado gliet a more
comprehensive view of the great disaster
than has heretofore been published
ST Lotts April lit 185 1 7t A

omis Givtmmin We returned this
morning from an cploring tour which cov
ered lheentirc line of the Marthfleld torna
do from it source to where It ceased to be
seriously dtructltc and embraced alo a
part of tho track of the storm which fol
lowed the valley of the Kinlcy and we wish
to say to you as eje witnesses of the suffer
ing and destitution nowexi tlng among the
people litlng In the paths of thce whirl
wind that the half has not been told you
The James Iilier storm begin about thirty
five miles southwest of Springfield and
gradually increacil in size and power until
at fourteen mile from Its starting point it
had attained a width of 181 feet From
here to a point eight miles beyond Marsh
field a total dlstinca of forty six mile it
has cut an unbroken swath varying from
IVW to 2000 feet wide almost totally de
stroying cicry thing within the limits of
this belt Men women and chil
dren are killed or crippled horses
cattle sheep nnd hogs are In a similir con
dition house fences and outbuildings
not only leveled but blown away plows
wignn reapers and other farming utensils
are reduced to scrap iron and kindling
wood and in many cae fields with grow
ing crop are o covered with foret debris
or with mud and sand from the streams
that irueh additional labor Is required to
save what has been planted This labor the
owner ran not gic without aid Some are
widow who e hu hand hale been killed
leaving them with crippled children to
iiur e no hou es or barn- left standing anil
entlrrly without hore or implement with
w hieh 10 carrv on the farm In other cases
the farmer arc alive and unhurt but with
Ii idly injured families who demand their
tir tcare and who being utterly without
mean are d pendents on the bounty of
their nelgnhor who wcre fortunate
enough to live outside the tornados
path Another cHs conits of those
who are crippled for lifn from the
of arm or leg The Kinlcy storm
which probably began at or near Caville
Iarry County and which followed thirty
minutes behind tbeJuuic River whirlwind
gradually diverged from the cour c of the
latter they were three mile apart at the
point of nearet approimtion until it
nu illy reached and de troyed the town of
ticking in Texas County was le violent
th in Ihe other and it path wa in irked by
untouched paees but the total d image
done wa probably fullv a great In Marsh
field cignty sH deaths hive occurred to
date about IU per cent of tlie population
Korty nine arc now in the hospital which is
in chareof St Ioui nurse and of these
three will probably die The destruction of
the finnlie of tho c adult who have been
killed is or will be mo t pitiable The
town of lelunon and Springfield and the
people of the count ic adjoining are doing
nobly but the de tnietion is o great and so
widespread that what ha been done up
to the present lime 1 very inadequate to ef
fect what should be done We therefore
most earne Uy int t that rou will not cea e
vour effort until the St Loui subscription
lias been doubled at the very least and that
too a rpeedil as po siblej so ibaf the des
titute fanner families mav be enabled to
makea crop thi e ion and have Ihe neces
saries of life for the coming winter We
advi e al o tint the additional donations
should be distributed a Judiciously a pos
sible between Ihe agricultural sufferers and
tho c of the town and for this purpose you
should have a cleir headel representative
in the relief committee of Springfield and
Mar hield Any further or more particular
information on the subject of the tornado
will be given with pleasure upon applica
tion to either of the Ue re
