HAS STREAK OF BAD LUCK IN THE SOUTH Edgar Barker, cf Perry, Oklahoma, Finds Misfortune Never Comes Except in Bunches. Grant Wetenkamp of this city has received a letter from Edgar Barker of Perry, Oklahoma, a former resi dent of this vicinity where he made his home on the William Wetenkamp farm near this city, and who moved to Oklahoma nine years ago. In his letter,. Mr. Barker tells of a very severe wind, hail and rain storm that swept over that portion of the, country, destroying wheat, oats and fruits. The corn wag badly beat up by the force of the storm, but will come out of the ordeal much better than the other crops and little damage to this crop is expected. Mr. Barker states that never in the history of that country has there been such rain and hail. The force of the hail broke the window lights and the rain drove Into the home until water stood . three and four inches deep on the floors and the members of the Barker family suffer ed the greatest Inconvenience from the effects of the storm. Neighbors of the Barkers had their bedding soaked in the storm and -were forced to spend the time standing around, unable to secure any rest. In the residences and places of business at Lucerne, a small town a few miles away, there is not a window light left. Owing to the shortage of glass and the inability of the dealers to secure a sufficient supply for the de mand, there is more or less annoy ance felt by the residents of that part of Oklahoma. Mr. Barker had his barn blown down in the storm to add to the other losses, but was fortunate in having this covered with insurance, but the loss to the crops is complete, as he carried no hall insurance whatever.
