? of a lively whirlwind that prevailed in i
limited section of that county , Sunda ;

X ) . Logan's windmill was the first thinj
to be destroyed ; then old man Orcutt'
mill fell a prey to the wind. Dick Tur
pin's large barn was unroofed , the roe
being carried away some distance. A
this point the whirlwind had within it
circle and power straw stacks and i
quantity of general wreckage , makinj

notwithstanding the inclement anc
threatening weather of the day anc
evening. It is safe to say , too , tha
those composing the audience were wel
repaid for their efforts , as the musica
part of the program was entertaininj
indeed. Each song or instrumenta
number was fittingly introduced by Rev
Turner , which added to the interest anc
understanding of the music. The ladie :
of the Dorcas society served ice crean
-aud ice and cake. From both feature !
of the evening a neat sum was realized
