was vlBited by the worst rain and hall
fctorm In Us history. The Btorm broke
about 10:30 p. m. and for three-quarters

ruin wrought.

aged. Corn Is also very' badly hurt.
On the ea6t and south sides of tho
school house nil the glass was broken,
and the same Is true of many storea
and houses.

no uouui oi me inorougnness oi me
destruction that resulted from the
storm. The destruction seems to
have been confined practically within
the territory outlined in the imme
diate vicinity of this town, as no re
ports of damage have come in from
any of the other towns or villages In
this and adjoining counties.

Columbia, and otHcrs.
We could argue the quality cf Columbia
indestructible Cylinder Records until a year
from, now but what good would it do if
you could not prove it for yourself by coming
into our store and seeing and hearing it?
We could print a whole newspaper every
day about the special and original Colum
bia processes of manufacture and get no
where at all if the Records did not bear the
won't break, no matter how roughly they are used,
they won't wear out, no matter how often they are
played. Moreover, their tone is far purer, clearer,
more brilliant than that of any other cylinder
record made. Don't merely take our word for it
come inside our store and listen.Cost 35 cents I
