Bratt & Goodman.
The village of Hershoy, twelve miles
west of North Platte was struck by a
cyclone last evening. A number of
buildings were demolished, but -fortunately
no one was injured. The funnel
shaped cloud was seen to form about
two mues nortnwost ot tin town, and
seemed to he the result of two clouds
merging. With awful elocity and a
roaring that warned the people of its
approa:h the storm swept toward the
viuage; those residents who had cellnrs
seeking retreat therein. '
The first building struck in the town
proper was the large hay barn, which
jvhs completely demolished, the depot
building was partly unioofed, the opera
house was moved bodily twenty Inches

tkk-Tttio drug store, the postolllce and, the
naniware store were unrooted and the
fronts rtly demolished, i large grain
house was careened on its side, tho
garage of Dr. Sadler was lifted bodily
trom the foundation and carried away,
die automobile standing in its trackB
uninjuied; two houses were moved from
the foundations and more or loss dam
aged, but none of the occupnnss injured;
and numerous small stables, sheds and
outhouses were completely wrecked.
The cloud rose and fell as it passed
along; wrecking a building, then lifting
passed oyer the next without damage,
then again dipping and creating dam
age. The force of the wind was shown
w(hen a pieco of n 2x4 was driven
through the sidintr and ulaster of a
house; pieces of conugated iron from
demolished buildings penetrated the
sides of other buildings; and wreckage
was carried a distance of two miles out
sido the town. A heavy hail accompanied
thtstorm, and crops which had not
been damaged by hail of Tuesday even
ing was laid waste.
While no deaths or injuries resulted
directly from the storm, onu death was
indirectly due to it; Supt. Wickstrom,
of tho North Platto Land & Wator Co.,
dropping dead from heart trouble while
viewing the wreckage following the
storm. He was standing at the sito of
tho hay barn, nnd suddenly dropped to
ground, expiring before medical aid
could bo summonod. This tragic fea
ture of the storm created profound
sorrow, for the deceased had lived in
Hershey for n number of years and
was one who stood high in the estima
tion of the people.

Lightning, Hail and Windstorm
continue their destruction. It is un
fortunate that so few people were in
sured. Dear Reader, arc you one of
these? The many losses that arc being
reported sets insurance companies to
thinking and their agents to wondering
why some people don't insure. We
are getting constant reports by tele
phone and wire of the many losses.
One man loses eight head of cattle out
of nine, another three horses, another
his barn. Ten farmers in the valley
west of us, lose all their crops. What
a pleasure it would have been to us to
be able to pay all these losses.
Had these unfortunate farmers been in"
bn us we would have paid every dol
lar. Be, wise and let us insure what
you have left today.
