Tb storm wrought Ita greatest havoc
la Iowa, wber th counties of Polk
and Jasper war devasUted by two
tornadoes. Ths loss of lite was beariest
Tb storm originated near th town
of Ankeny, ninety-flv mile north of
Da Moinea. Aa near aa can be sscer
Utned from those who saw th sight,
two clouds, on from th northwest"
and one from th eon tb west, mat and
dropped down on tn earth and wrought
their havoc on all that waa loos and
fast. Th storm moved northeastward.
Near th town of Bondursnl it killed
iu Brat vlcums, the members of th
Bailey family. Tb atorm waa eeen
oomina from Bondurant. Manv farm-
t era who bad attended th church aerv-
' ioea had bees unable to get horn before
: tb storm, and their Uvea were thus
'saved. Th track of th tornado at
tbia point was about a quarter of a
mile wide. It passed onward, going
north of th town of Santiago. All
along th course th fences and build
ings, crop and tree wer completely
destroyed. In place balk was peeled
from th trees, houses wer lifted up .
and hurled down and broken into splin
ters; cellars vera heaped full of mud,
'and debris, often partially covering
those who had Uken refuge la tbem.
Thoae who had fled to caves wer in
variably aaved, but ao sudden waa th
approach of tb atorm that many war
unable to find that shelter, though th
oaves were only a few rods from them.
Pass is g onward tbe storm struck Va-
The railroad bridge on tb Chi
Great Western waa the first object
wissaiaa wua. la. tsnag waa
i pletely oemolisbed, and the rail, were
I twisted and bent out ot shape. Tb
! town waa almost completely ruined.! '
! Tb building were demolished whed
they stood in ths full force of the
storm, and those which stood along the '
edges of tb atorm were moved and
twisted, and in other waya injured. A
acboolbouserss Uken away bodily,
and fragmenu of it have ao far escaped
There were soms strange pranks
played near thit town. An old man
holding a babe was. lifted up snd
dropped into an adjoining field without
th least injury being don to either
him or the child.
Leaving the wrecked town, the atorm
moved forward, laying the country
bare, wrecking, house and killing th
inmates. On observer near Valeria,
who saw tbe storm find observed it
carefully, aaya that the cloud appeared
to be a high balloon, dark green in
color, witn a light streak in tb cen
ter. It traveled at a tremendous rate,
tearing up the largest tree by tb roots
or stripping them clean off, driving
posU into th earth, twiating buildings
in tb edge of iu track, end first, spat
tering the house close to it with mod
and sand, atrippiog hedge and licking
th grata from tb fields. From Vale
ria the storm moved on, passing near
the town of Mingo.
Later in the evening, a tornado seems
to have struck near Manchester, in
Delaware county, although report ar
very meager from there. It ia possible
that this waa the same atorm, and tbat, ,
after traveling 150 mile in th air, it
once more dipped down to tbe earth
and laid bare a atrip half a mil wide
and aix or eight mile long.
