It is a pitiful sinlit to view the
cornfields as they lie torn and de
Hroyed. Yesterday morning they
presented a beautiful sight. The
corn has been kept clean this year
and the frequent rams of the last
few weeks have made the stocks
strong and sturdy, while the leaves
were symetrical and of a beautiful
c'ark green color.
Inthe center of the path of the
hail cloud trees were stripped of their
leaves uid stand bare and naked.
Gardens were destroyed and in some
places chickens and pigs were kill
ed by the hail stones.
The hail was accompanied by a
fierce windstorm which threw down
many of the small buildings and
scores of windmills. In some places
the farmers report that their corn
was whipped to pieces, rather than
torrn into pieces with the hail.
