Killed by Hundreds.
Fonda. Ia.. July 1 One of tbe most
dreadful calamities in the hietory of this
state visited this section last even og.
Owing to tbe demoralized condition of
tbe telegraph wires, it is impossible as
yet to get all tbe details. As far as can
be learned a cyclone started southeast of
here about 7 o'clock last evening and
swept almost due east, leveling every
thing in its oath for a width of 1000
yards. kiliinsTand maiming tbe inhab.
itastsintbe towns and thickly popu
lated farming districts. Tbe loss of life
iSjknowo to be verv great, though tbe
actual details arc far from lull and tbe
loss ot property is beyond estimation
As far as beard from, tbe calamity took
its most frightful form at Pomeroy. a
town of about 900 population Reports
received are to tbe eflect that tbe tntir
town, except 30 houses, was swept from
the facn of the eirth. One hundred peo
ple are killed, and 200 injured, many o'
whom will die. As soon as the news of
tbe disaster was learned, special trains,
with physicians and nurses, went from
here nd Fort Dodge, and every able-
boaied man in tbe vicinity lent a help
ng band to tbe wounded and dving
The wounded were found lving all about
tbe streetH, beseeching help, it wad sev
eral hours before tbe condit on ol affairs
was knwn. The town was in total dark
ness and the streets were nl ed with
wrecked horn- and Susiuess houses.
The tcene was appalling as men wi'b
lanterns went abont ia tie debris. In
some Instances entire families were wiped
out. Mangled remains were found in
the ruins of the homes. The work of
rescue was slow, and the truialoads ot
helpers made hut little bead-way. rb
sou b halt of the town is ruztd. The
church, just opposite tbe track of tbe
sJorm, was turned into a hospital Hi-re
the surgeons worked by the aid of lan
terns and lamps. Those with broUtn
bones were stretched upon tbe pews,
while those less severely injured were
compelled to lie on the floor awaiting
ibtir turns. Tbe dead were laid out on
the ground on a vacant lot at the edge of
a devHstated block. Through tbe aisles
between the bodies the survivors passed
looking tor lose ones.
At the approach. of the storm, which
imparted a greenish tint, followed by
darkness and what appeared to be a col
umn ot smoke, many sought shelter in
their cellars, and others mounted horses
to flee from the path of destruction .
The relief party worked under tbe di
rection of Vice-President EUrraban, ot
the Illinois Central railroad, who with a
party ot officials narrowly escaped tbe
cyclone, reaching here a tew minutes af
ter it passed. Tbe' tornado past-ed west
and south of this place, demolishing
buildings and groves, and killing and
injuring many persons.

! cashier; R. M. Page, vice-president; and
Colonel R. M. Wynne were in consulta
tion over the affairs of tbe bank yester
day morning, in tbe cashier's othce, when
a dispute arose. Page and Smith dis
agreed and drew pistols. Eight shots
were bred. Page teceived a deep flesh
wound, which is not serious. Colonel
R. M. Wynne pushed between the men
and got Smith on tbe t ther side of a
brass wicket door and then left the bank.
Smith and Page emptied their revolvers
at each other through tbe door, but
neither was bit.
and the party were on deck and waived
acknowledgments. The lieutenant pro

Salem celebrated the 4th with a picnic
Bere was a sample according to the Inde
pendent of the day's proceedings, evidently
a 1st of April affair: Quite s large amount
of amusement was an'orded at the picnic
grounds yesterday by a "lost purse." It
was a new and neat lookine affair, stuffed
just full enough of paper to call up visions
of lots of wealth. A wooden peg was the
means ot fastening it to the ground, and
this was done so securely that a cart horse
could hardly have moved it. The cupidity
oi the crowd was amply illustrated by the
way in which it dived for that purse. At
one time four people saw it at the same mo

the confusion they were so badly mixed up

doubtless with the philanthropic idea of
