THE RED CLOUD CHIEF,
TOWN Or HERMAN, NEBRASKA,
WIPED OUT BY BIG TORNADO.
A DOZEN PEFS.ONS KILLED, AND MANY MORE
Town Struck Shortly Before 7 O'Clock and Only Two Build
ings Left StandingPassenger Train Turns Itself
Into a Temporary Hospital and Relief Train
Blair Physicians to the Rescue.
Omaha, Neh., June 14 A telephone
message from Hlair says tlint the little
town of Herman, u few miles north of
Hlnir, was totally destroyed by u tor
nado last evening. The railroad men
say that not n building of any cousc
quence was left standing. Herman is
Mild to have a population pf about six
hundred. It is on the Chicago, St.
Paul, Minneapolis fc Omaha railway,
about forty miles from Omaha.
A train on this road passed through
Herman southbound an hour after the
tornado. The conductor says the ear
nage was terrible and that he counted
ten dead bodies within sight of the
railroad track. Ac could not give an
estimate of the number of casualties,
which must be large.
Coining on down to Hlnir he gave
the alarm and a relief train was soon
made up. Volunteers were taken up
to Herman, including all the physi
cians of lilalr, and they arc now doing
nil they can for the wounded. The
wires arc all down and further details
can not be given until the relief train
returns to ltlair at a late hour.
Advices received up to 11 o'clock
last night state that every building in
the town is destroyed except the pub
lic school and a biuall dwelling, both
of which arc on the outskirts. The
force of the wind was terrific, and
scarcely one piece of any of the many
structures destroyed was left intact.
The scene in the streets of the once
thriving and beautiful little town is
one of destruction. Wrecked build
ings and broken furniture are strewn
all around, while dead bodies lie in
in many places, the corpses badly dis
figured and some of them hardly rec
ognizable. The Ilycr on the C. M. St. P. M. &. O.
due in Herman at 7:05 pulled in fifteen
minutes late, and the entire train
crew, turned themselves into a relief
corps and the train into an emergency
hospital. The train, unable to proceed
through the wreckage, immediately
returned to Ulair with some eighty
eight persons, this number including
one of the dead, Postmaster Richards
and all of the wounded found up to
that time. Four members of a family
named Hopkins, living on the out
skirts of town, are reported dead, but
the report has not yet been verified.
'J hi wounded as reported arc:
Thomas llaynes of Illuir.
Unknown man from Missouri Valley.
Mis. Kline of Herman.
Shoemaker named Clausen of Her
man. Immediately upon the arrival of the
train in Ulair, the wounded were car
ried to tho homes of the residents of
Ulair and the Christian hotel. The
train returned at once to Herman with
medical assistance, physicians, several
ministers and many townspeople.
