storm had been predicted, but no one

the test for many years were broken
down, and in many cases completely
uprooted, and the west half of the
large plate glass front of the Dussell
building was blown in. A number of
small buildings in different parts of
the city were overturned. In the
country several windmills were re
ported to have beea blown dawn. At
the Sheldon farm, occupied by George
Simpson, the entire east end of the
bam was blown out. At the Merve
Kuntzelman home the large bam was
moved about two feet on the founda
tion, and the kitchen to the house was
moved several incae. The wind was
followed by a heavy rain, which has
proved of great value, especially to
pastures, which had become quite dry.
