TERRIBLE LOSSES 3* (Continued from Page 1.) over, wtih lanterns, looking over their fields. They found their almost ripened grain flat on the ground, in some places almost buried beneath the earth. The ruin In the 48 miles described above was, as far as could be learned up to an early hour this morning, complete.. Of course therw may be isolated farms that escaped, but it is generally thought that with in that area everything is totally ru ined. IjSeverity' of Storm. At Mansfield one lady visited her garden after the storm was over and fov^nd that all vegetables were out of the ground. Windows that were pro tected by screens were smashed. The stones were not large, but were driv en with terrific force by the wind that prevailed. A peculiar thing connected with the storm was that no rain fell until after the hail had spent its force. Those who watched the storm ap- ful loss. The devastated section lies in one of the richest sections of the two counties. The crops previous to last night's storm were looking exceeding ly well, and all prospects for a good crop were excellent. The effects of the storm would be impossible to esti mate at this writing. Later Reports Reports received up to a Jate hour last night show that the hail storm in the southern part of this and the northern part of Spink county was more disastrous than was at first thought. Instead of 160 square miles of territory, the area embraced in the storm's.wake is, at a conser vative estimate, 240 square miles. This means that 1,140 quarter sec tions of crops have been either to tally or partially destroyed. It was ascertained yesterday that the starting point of the storm was about three miles west of this city. There its wake was about four miles wide. It traveled in a southeasterly direction, and by the time it had reached Warner township it was about seven miles wide. .From War ner it still continued in its south easterly direction, maintaining the same width, until it died out in the vicinity of Ash ton. Its extent from northwest to southeast was 40 miles. practically all this immense area the damage will be total, the only places where the damage will be partial being on the extreme edges of the storm's path. ill'111 Path of Storm. &?•„ ®®!l&7ery farmer included in the strip of four 'miles beginning two and a half miles west of this city, which gradually widened into a strip seven miles wide, extending- for 40 miles southeast, suffers practically a total damage. The. east, edge ot the storm at its start was not far from the Ira O. Curtiss farm. It went on a south easterly course and tentered Warner township across the old Stablein farm, now owned by J. P. Sweeney, crossed the Northwestern track at the Edward Quinn place. At this po|pt the storm gradually widened to the east, crossing the Milwaukee track not far from the L. O. Moulton farm, two miles east of the track •From there the east edge of the ptorm extended southeast almost as straight as the crow flies across the southeastern corner of Gem} township and entering Rondell township about four miles west or Warner continues straight southeast to,.the Jim river and Spink county: In Rondell town ship, however, the damage'is not so Complete, as It is in the other town ships In the county which the storm visited. The .west edge of the storm start ed near the L. N. HallickcOn farm in Mercier township, almost pn the Bd munds 'county line, and continues straight southeast across the north* ^western part of" Highland township, and entered Warner township, j^ust •west of the HenraJJchnorr placeifThe atom continued straight southeast, its wept edge just hitting Mansfield. All ,the farmers within" that Motion are nearly all wiped out slick and clean. There are, of course,a' few ytarms where the damage may fee Con sidered partial.

The list of losers is so large that no attempt to give individual losses will be made, £,\ .. sis Terrible Effects j* Through the courtesy of John Hol leribeck a representative of the Amer ican made an automobile trip into the stricken section. The route was down the Northwestern trpck for 4 miles, at which point the first dam age from the storm was noticed. Here afield of wheat had been mowed to the ground and other fields to the south and west were in the same con dition. From that point the course was direct east to the Milwaukee track, the highway five miles south of Aberdeen being the line which de marked the edge of the storm. The route from there was direct south al most to Warner and then east for three miles, and then south for three miles more. Southeast of -Warner the storm was worse than it was farther to the northwest. Field after "field of grain was mowed to the ground. Many fields wlere seen in which a start of the reaping had been ade and which wero partially cut the evening before the storm struck them. The only difference to be noted in the reaping done by the the party started for home, ed south to the Spink couuty ine. The fields of destroyed grain all pre sented an "appearance of depressing destruction, so complete and power ful was the onslaught. The corn fields once waving with beautiful stalks presented an appearance that for all the world resembled afield studded with brooms, all frayed out. No such sight has ever been seen here before. •JS?: No estimate can be made'yet of the, total damage, and cannot be un til the farmers commence to send in their claims to the insurance compa nies. One thing is certain, and that is that the storm is the worst in the history of the county. In many localities the hailstones collected in piles six inches deep and resembled great blocks of ice. Swan Jensen yesterday exhibited in this city yesterday a piece of matted hail stones larger than an ordinary water pail and frozen to solid ice. It is al most unbelievable that such could be true. For the most part the hail stones were email, about the size of peas, but their great number and the terrific force by which they were driven account for their immense de structiveness. A mild estimate of the loss is about half a million dollars. MILITIA WILL NOT BE CALLED UPON (Continued from Page 1.) an opportunity to return to work without any discrimination and with the guaranty of being protected by the forces at the sheriff's command. At a late hour yesterday no report of violence had found its way into Du luth, 4nd it was hoped that with the coming of night there would be none. Still there was a feeling of apprehen sion here that something might be started after nightfall. The authorities are not sleeping, and the additional deputies who ar rived at Hibbing in the afternoon were at once taker, tc the Monroe Tenner mine, where they will be ready.

Seeboy was brought to the pail two months ago on the charge of intro ducing liquor onto the Sisseton In dian reservation. He was being held to the next term of federal court at Deadwood, which convenes in Septem ber. He was to be released from jail in a few days on bail furnished by his relatives, who are persons of some means. He was 55 years of age and leaves a family.??' i/ ft ~l t." The remains were handed over to Undertaker Wilson after they had been reviewed by a physician, who declared life was extinct. Arrange ments will be made today for the dis position of the remains. Temporary insanity, caused by constant brooding over his crime and probable punish ment are thought to be the cause of his act. The suicide caused a mild panic among the other prisoners* of ^ihe-jail, many of whom were afraid to remain in the jail: One of them, as spokes man for several of the more superstl tious, asked Sheriff Anderson for a lamp for the remainder of the night. His request was granted. Seeboy's suicide was thu first in the history of the present jail. MILLIONAIRE TRAMP" Well Known Character from Artesian Made Himself Known Here Yesterday. Charles Lubie, kndwn as "the mil lionaire tramp," who hails from Ar tesian, where he is said to own a big farm and much other property, made his annual visit to Aberdeen yester day ,and as usual got into trouble and was finally taken into custody by the police. He got into a scrap on Main street yesterday afternoon, and in the mixuy bit his opponent's fin ger. The melee was interrupted by the police, and Lubie was put in his customary dock in the bastile to sober up during the night. He will appear before Justice Jones today. Lubie is well known by the police and many persons in this city. He visits Aberdeen annually, and each visit is a repetition of the former. Last year while here he' started to clean out a local establishment, us ing his wooden leg, which he un strapped, as a club, and proved him self a bad man to handle.

PRETTY ROMANCE ON S WESTERN PRAIRIE Vermillion, S. p., Aug. 1.—When Miss Clara Hillory, of Volin, filed on a quarter section of land in Stanley county she was surprised tp learn that Fred Charrlin, of Vermillion, was holding down the adjoining t&rm by virtue of a homestead entry. Miss Hillory had formerly met Mr. Charr lin while he was superintending the construction of a telephone line in Volin. But she was not aware then of the pretty little romance that was to follow, and which would con summate in her marriage to the Ver "m111 ion young man. Young women holding down claims find a way of making the young men useful, and it was not 'long before Charrlin became indis pensable to his (air neighbor. He carried the wood and Water .from afar, built the fires, kept the garden free from grass and weeds, mowed the grass around the shanties, went to town for provisions and made him self useful in many other ways. In the meantime young Charrlin discovered that Miss Hillory was a charming young woman. He was led'to believe that his love was re ciprocated, and so one beautiful ev ening out oh the plains of .Stanley county he popped the question. He was forthwith accepted, and it was arranged that whe nthey had receiv ed title to their respective home steads from Uncle Sam they would hunt up a minister and get married. Mr. and Mrs. Charrlin will visit a few weeks in Vermillion and will then go to take charge of the Hid denwood 'ranch in Hughes county, recently purchased by the father of the groom, A. J. Charrliu. They have already been offered $4,800 for their half section in Stanley coun ty, but will hold on1 for a better price. According to returns made by the county assessors the Missouri river has taken 116 acres of valuable farm land from Clay county farm ers during "the past year. It has been cutting worse than ever the past two or three riionths, and un less something is done by Uqcle Sam to relieve conditions the next year will witness the taking off of more form and timber land" than was ever known before. During' the same pe riod the Vermillion river has covered enough .-land to re&icouthe assessed valuation In the Vermillion valley about $30,000. But notwithstanding these reduc tions the assessed valuation of ..all Clay county land this year is $4, 590,319, or f80,950 in excess of the valuation of last year.
