O resit Destruction f Property by
. ClOH. .
St. Patti., July 4. The first complete
and coherent account of the terrible des
truction to life in Goodhue county by a
Btorm on Wednesday night and yesterday
morning reached here at an early hour
this morning. The storm assumed the
character of a cyclone near Redwing
Point, greatest violence being at Vasa, a
small village some ten miles west of the
Mississippi. ; v
The following is from aEedwing spec
ial to the Pioneer-Press. In the town
of Vasa the fury of the storm -was at its
height, making fearful havoc. It seemed
to start from about four miles from the
Yasa church and traveled in a southwest
erly direction. The orphanage which is
under the care of the church was com
pletely demolished. It contained 24 in
mates besides Stranberg, who has charge.
Out of this number three was killed out
right and seventeen others injured, three,
it is thought, fatally. The house of Erick
Swenson, close by, was blown down. He
was killed and his wife severely injured.
G. H. Halme and wife, an elderly couple,
were killed; also a baby boy of Mr. and
Mrs. Linsted, and another party whose
name has not been learned, making nine
in all killed. Four more are not expect
ed to live. The number wounded is 30.
The square roof was blown from the par
sonage, a little in the rear of the church,
and set down in the field where it flatten
ed like a fan. - The barn of August Pet
erson was blown down and his house
badly injured; also, of course the houses
of aU who have been mentioned as killed
were blown down and many houses were
inin -a.) TTia ntnnn alan ran crfxil f i rnn crh
Belle Creek, where it blew down the
house of Anthony Petti
qv Pettil and completely
demolished the barn of Walter .Doyle.
The blacksmith shop at Black Oak post
office was scattered to the winds, and at
different places in the town, trees were
lifted right off the ground by the- roots
and carried forward and set down with
out breaking a limb. At Warrentown,
on the Lake Shore, three houses were
torn down and a man and his wife and
daughter killed in one of them. At
Maiden Bock two frame houses were de
molished and the top of the warehouse ta
ken off, but no lives were lost. The storm
crossed from this side to Trenton, where
it unroofed Mr. Hammelgren's houses,
barn and granary, and broke down the
large trees in his timber, smashing near
ly every tree. The roof of Andrew Nel
son's barn was blown away and com
pletely smashed to pieces, and the barn
of John Taggart, another neighbor, was
Struck 1
struck by lightning and burned to the
Kround. These houses are all in the
southeastern part of the town. The
damage to the crops is considerable, but
not so bad as if the season were later. ;

exploded contained about five tons of
giant powder.; The cause of the explo

the old shaft of the Standard were 'de
molished and set on fire, the flames ex
tending to the shaft, but were soon ex
tinguished. The new shaft and hoisting
works and mill are uninjured and run
ning as usual. There is plenty of ore on
hand to keep the mill going until the
works of the old shaft are re pared. The
house of the new shaft is somewhat dam
aged, but not so as to interfere with busi
ness. The building of the Stimmit mine
was completely demolished, and that of
McClinton Bodie and Dudley slightly
damaged. Many boarding nouses, res
taurants and other buildings are more or
less shattered. ;
