molished, and had the cyclone struck
the business oeuter the damage would
not easily be calculated.- At Western
Union Junction, seven miles weal of Ra
cine, many houses ' were wrecked
and one young man named " Webber
killed. The financial Iws by the storm
will not exceed $50,000. The buildings
demolished were principally frame
structures, and individual losses range
from $500 to $1,000. ' . ' ; 1

special gives additional facts as to the
! flood at Dead wood. The '.heavy snow
and liood rerorted some days ago in u
dispatch from Stevenson, was nt Dead-
wood. Additional rain had 'fallen
almost every day for a month, making
the roads impassable and saturating
the ground thoroughly with water.
This wus followed by a heavy, full of
snow, , which disappeared , rapidly
under the heavy warm rain of Friday
night and Saturday. The pt-lches r
valleys in the hiils are frou. "-v
hundred feet to probably a q i nu r f
a mile wide, generally. J)-.vi: -. .! is
at the junction of Wh:twood aud
Dead wood gulches. Numerous gulches
in this case emptied their accumula
tion of water from the mountains into
those two rauin gulches and gave
volume to the water that rushed down
Whitewood in resistless force. Central
City, Anchor City and Golden Gate are
on the Deadwood above Deadwood
City. The greater portion of Cential
City would be above the flood but for
Anchor and Golden Gate. There was
no escape here, however. The gulch
is not over 600 feet wide.
Deadwood is a town of 6,000 peole.
The main residence portion of the city
is from 100 to 200 feet above the gulch
and the main business portion was
also above the danger line. The por
tion destroyed was occupied by cheap
tenement houses, second-class hotels,
laundries, small traders, sporting
houses, livery stablt-s, etc. Some build
ings were built over the stream.which,
at its ordinary stage, was only a few
feet wide. Its locality was avoided,
however, by the shrewder interest, the
danger was recognized. In this case
timely warning was given by means of
the telephone system existing in the
Hills, and the most valuable articles
were removed. ... ,
So tar but three bodies have been re
covered, but it in now beiievjjd ihat
the loss of life has been great.'. The
wild excitement was only equalled by
that at the time of the fire. Horse
men rushed in every direction and

&l.'I,ouie, May 20. Deepalches from
Yivious poiuts iu Illinois give fuller
details of 'Friday night's cyclone. -
In Illinois the storm raged in atout
the same manner it did in Missouri,
the chief damage, however, being to
country property, it sti iking no town
of any' considerable size. Iu the' vi
cinity of Gdwardsville three residences
were utterly wrecked. vMrs. Frank
Maxey was instantly killed in the
wreck of her father's house, M. K.
Barnett. All other members of the
family were' iujured. A well on the
place, containing 20 feet of water, was
sucked perfectly dry. Wolfs store
atllamel, a few miles from Edwards-
ville, was blown to pieces. Four per
sons were killed. At Woodsboro, a
brick school house, a church and three
residences were blown down; James
Carr and wife were seriously injured.
Loss at and near Staunton, estimated
at $40,000, and in the vicinity of Ed
wardsville, at $35,000. In Dewiit
county nine . houses were destroyed
near Kenny. Several others in Texas
township, and three persons named
Clifton were killed and at out a dozen
badly injured. The house of a man
named McPherson containing six per
sons was lifted into the air, carried a
100 feet, and set down again. Nobody
received a scratch,
The loss of life in Illinois by the
tornado of Friday night is computed
at from 61 to S3, given by counties
and towns as follows: Dewitt county
