Twelve Persons Killed and iwcuty.f nill More or Less ’Wonndea. value of the A Hock of 1,500 Sheep Carried Off and Mashed to Atoms. Tbe Tillage of Lancaster, Keokuk County Badly Wrecked. The Hurricane on the Mississippi- Two Steamboats Seriously Damaged. Thrilling Description of the Storm Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune* Washutqtok, lows, May %L —Trie extent of the terrific tornado which swept ovcrKeokuk and Washington Conn ties last Thursday after noon was hat meagrely detailed in the dispatenea sent from here on that evening. The damage done seemed too great to be realized, and al though the statements made were alarming, they convey no idea of tho injury done to prop erty, and of the number of persons killed and wounded. •In the absence of 'telegraphic com munication with the interior, nothing definite could be learned, and hence the dispatches were Tnade up * from rumors, with a few sensational -adjectives sandwiched in to make the cyclone truly horrible. Had the writer of the dispatch had the most vivid imagination, he could nob have pictured the devastation and rain wrought within two hours. Such a wind-storm was never before experienced in these counties. The old est inhabitant remembers a hurricane twenty five years ago, that swept everything before it, but as Washington was then an insignificant vil lage, the damage was not material. Five years later there was a hail-storm, which did consid erable injury to the crops, "but the tornado of last Thursday is the severest ever known in Washington County. No damage whatever was done in Washington, the point nearest where the storm laid its de stroring hand being abont 6 miles distant. The roar which accompanied this manifestation of the anger of nature was distinctly heard here, and it is said by farmers, who live 10 miles away, that they heard a peculiar, rambling noise, and could not avoid connecting it with the storm. To some the noise sounded like a heavy freight train at night, when everything was reposing; to others, like musketry, with an occasional dis charge of artillery. Scarcely any light ning flashes were visible, and only an occasional loud peal of thunder was heard. The rain fell in torrents, not in drops, but in sheets, there appearing to be a lake of water in the atmosphere. The whole country was flooded to the depth of several inches, and it is feared the com already planted has been washed out. The little creeks and rivulets, which supply Skunk Biver, were swollen and overflowed their banks, carrying away trees, and causing the banks to cave in.' JS tttpi U2CE OF TTTV. STOBar. Everything, except here and there a mile or two over which the whirlwind seems to have jumped, is desolate-looking. Scarcely a house, ham, shed, or granary is left.. All were swept away as clean as the fire wiped out the North Bide of Chicago. The exact starting point of the storm is not known, hut it is believed to have been in Keokuk County, probably a few miles west of .Lancaster, which town, it Is said, was totally demolished. It advanced in another easterly direction, passing north ol Tallyrand about three miles, and south of Keata, through the Goman settlement called Baden, approaching the line of Washington Count 5 where it jumped a district of about eight mile.?, alighting again about six zones northwest oi Washington on the farm of Frank Brown. Bemaining on the ground for six or eight miles, it passed up to Highland Township. Leaving the earth here, it struck again in Middle Town ship, where its force was spent, and it disap peared as suddenly as it appeared. Those who saw the commencement saythej first noticed an immense •which to some resembled a bnge hay-stack in shape, and to others a balloon, with the small end toward the ground. They eonid not see beyond its borders, but, aa it went by, they aaw mud and boards flying in all directions. Houses were tom from their foundations, aa it thep were chaff, broken and twisted into a mill ion fragments, some of which were forced into the ground two or throe feet. Cattle were lifted up carried some distance, and hurled head-long to 'the earth. One heifer, three years old, was thrown into a ditch, head first, and when found her head and neck were buried in the mud. Thin is an actual fact, as I saw it myself, the owner having left the animal where she was thrown in order to satisfy the incredulous. Sev eral steers bad pieces of timber forced into their aides, and quite a number were thrown down so violently that their limbs and horns were broken. It is impossible to give an adequate descrip tion of the of the cyclone. It moved forward so ranidlv, and those who saw it approaching were aobadiv frightened, that they thought only of their owii safety. What' met their view they conld not avoid looking at,, although fear seems to have confused their minds and rendered them unable to give a satisfactory account of it. As far as I have been able to leant, no man who possesses even a superficial knowledge of storms observed it. Those who were in its midst and escaped with broken limbs and braised bodies NUMBER 279.
