You ought to try the spot cash plan in your buying

Herman, M, Destroyed
With Great Loss ol Life
A Once Thriving Town is Reduced to
Hy Afooplnted l'rr tu the .Journal.
A special to tlie lleo from lllair, Neb.,
At 0:15 last night the town of Her
man, 11 miles north of here, was prac
tically wiped off the map. Tho storm
had been gathering for some hours, and
people in lllair and the surrounding
country had noticed two huge funnel
shaped clouds converging toward that
point. At Herman, people scurried in
all directions and sought tho shelter of
tho now cyclone cellars, and instantly
the town was a seething mass of debris.
After tho llrst violent burst of wind, a
torrent of rain fell.
Train No. 2, tho (Iyer on tho Chicago,
St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha, due in
Herman at (kO.'l p. m., pulled in 17 min
utes late and discovered that tho entire
town had been destroyed. Tho train
crew, as well as many of tho passenuors
turned thomeelvcs into a relief corps
and tho train into an emergency hospi
tal. The train, unable to proceed
through the wreckage of tho grain ele
pator blown across the tracks, returned
to Blair with some 88 persons, this
number including one of tho dead and
all of tlie wounded found up to that
Tho llrst damage done was about four
miles west of Herman, at the Hawkins
farm, Mr. Hawkins is dead, and his
barns and outbuildings are a mass of
ruins. In tho village of Herman but
few buildings are left standing. Tlie
business portion and tho residences are
piled up in a heap. That any escaped is
miraculous. Tho bank owned and op
erated by Itopresontative J. II. Cham
bers is in a mass of ruiiiH. It was a sub
stantial uncK Dunning, ins nomo, an
elegant framo building, escaped. Xear
tho depot is a pile of rubbish containing
everything from a pajr of boots to dead
and wounded horses, hogs, cattle, etc.
Tho dead and wounded thus far re

V. S. Hichards probably died from
suffocation. Ho was a very old man,
and had beon postmastmaster in Her

son is suffering from a broken arm and
very serious cuts nlwut tho face and
head. Her condition is critical. Tom
I linos is a mason from this city and
is suffering internal injuries. He is
probably fatally hurt.
Machinist Clausen, from Missouri
Valley, is cut and bruised about tho
head, mid is suffering from internal in
juries. His condition" is very serious,
and he prolxihly cannot live till morn
ing. Immediately upon the arrival of tho
train in lllair thuwoundotl were oarried
to the homes of the residents of Hluir,
and the Christian hotol, nour tho sta

with medical assistance, all the physic

A new sanuplpo weighing 10 tons was

RELEGATED SCHEM E .
Disarmament Not to Ue Seriously Con
sidered, Nkw Yoiik, Juno 14. Tho Ainerici n
projKisal for rendering private property
Inviolable at sea is strongly supported by
tho Dutch dulegates to thu huco confer
ence, according to tho correspondent of
tho Herald nt The Hague, who luw had
luturviewH with prominent momWs ot
Germany, howover, the correspondent
adds, is indifferent and Franco strongly
opposes It. Sho apjicars to think incase
of war against England, of tho possibil
ity which has baun shown by tho Fash
adu incident. Tlie American scheme
would rob her of her principal woaism
against Kngland. In case of a naval
war, it lias always been the idea of the
French to strike on every point of Eng
land's merchant marine and trade.
It is quite certain that Russia supports
the French view, unci probably because
sho considers herself bound In duty to
back her ally. The fate of tho American
process therefore, is very uncertain,
although Germany probably, In tho
end, will be found Hiding with the
United States and England, which may
possibly turn thu scale. At present thu
whole attention of tho conference is con
tent! on the arbitration question.
Tho corrosoudeut says ho read the
