Seven Persons killed and Fifty-four
Injured Buildings Carried
Half a Mile Away.
The village of Bradshaw, the first sta
tion west of York ou the B. & M. was
visited last night by a terrible cyclone,
and owing to wires being down a full
account can not be had at this writing;
but the following we clip from the
State Journal:
Meagre reports of the terrible work of
a cyclone which visited the western part
of York county reached the city shortly
after midnight this morning. Its great
est fury seems to have been spent at the
little yillage jf Bradshaw, lying v a few
miles east of the western boundary of
York county and some ten miles from
the county seat.
Up to a few minutes before its arrival
10:25 p. m., there was nothing to indicate
other than a high wind. The inhabitants
of the hamlet, unconscious of danger,
were preparing for their night's rest.
The work of demolition was terrible
in its swiftness. IN ot a house or barn is
left standing. Trees are stripped of
their leaves and branches and a scene of
utter desolation exists.
Seven persons are known to have been
killed outright and the list of injured
will reach anywhere from twenty to forty.
It will be daylight before the full list of
casualties can be learned.
The B. & M. depot, with a number of
freight cars, were lifted from their moor
ings and carried a distance of half or
three quarters of a mile.

citizens and all the physicians of York,

Oregon Letter.
Turner, Ore., May 22. To the Edi
tor of The Herald: I told you in my
last letter that I would tell you some
thing about the city of Salem the capi
tal city of Oregon lying in the north of
the Willamette valley. It is on the
Willamette about fifty miles up the river
from Portland. This river is navigable
for steam boats, they say, 150 miles up
from the mouth, and passes up the falls
that are seventy feet from the top to the
bottom. The boats are raised and
lowered by means of locks and it i3 truly
wonderful. These falls are at Oregon
City. I suppose it is one of the greatest
water powers in the world. Salem is a
city of over 10,000 inhabitants, and be
sides being the state capital, is the seat
of justice of Marion county. It is al'o a
manufacturing and commercial town of
considerable importance and a social
center. The streets are 100 feet wide
and the blocks 350 feet square. The
streets are lined with maple, elm and
other ornamental shade trees and the
city presents a beautiful appearance.
Residences are surrounded with spacious
lawns, tastefully ornamented with trees
and flowers, some of them such as I never
saw before.
Pleasing styles of architecture are em
ployed in the buildings and whatever
would add to the enjoyment of home
life is observed in finishing the surround
ings of the homes of Salem.
The state institutions are located here,
including the state house, upon which
there has been expanded a half million
dollars. The insane ii.tyluii) a tine
