IOWA'S CYCLONE ;
A Terrible Tornado Visits
the Eastern Portion of
Pottawattamie County.
Leaving Death and Ruin in Its
Path.
A fearful cyclone visited the aouth-
lastern portion of Pottawatlarnie
sounty on Wednesday evening last ,
rhich , for its fatal dcstructiveuess , ia
nprecedented in the history of south
western Iowa.
The storm was at itsjfnry near the
mall town of Macedonia , where fear-
ul haroc was made of several houtcs
and barns. A railroad camp , in the
rlcinity , wa-j totally demolished , the
crapers being twisted up as though
made cf tin. The tornado lore north
oa its destructive mission , tearingup
everything in its track. The first
LIFE WAS LOST
at the residence of Alex. Oalcr , where
member of the family was killed by
the falling timbers of the dwelling. A
itlle further on the entire family of
Mr. Jesse Osier were killed outright
by the death-dealing messenger. A
aniily named Phelps , eight in num-11
ber , were killed.
A telegram from Bed Chk says :
Twenty persons t-.re known to have
been killed , and six or eght are miss-
ug. Nearly all the physicians and a
arge number of citizens of Red Oak
have left for tha scene of the disaster.
Owing to the fact that the tract vis
ited by the cyclone is situated several
nvles fi om any railroad or telegraph
point , the news of the storm did not
reach this city until late yesterday. It
is impossible at this writing to estimate
the amount of damage cone io prop
erty , although many horzci , hrgs aud
cattle are killed and crippled.
JFroin what hs alrea-iy been re
ceived , the conclusion is waranted that
the storm of Wednesday night was
one of the most disastrous to life and
limb that has over visited western
Iowa , and will not soon be forgotten
by those who witnessed it. It was
terrible in appearance and horrifying
in results , taking ai it did the lives of
men , n omen and children without a
moment's warning daehing to atoms

Point Gumbo.
Wreckers at Work.
Yesterday morningareporterof THB
BKE crossed the river , and after a
> risk walk of half an hour reached
he scene of the late disaster. Point
Gumbo , or Gamp Richardson , as it is
ometimes called , is on tbo east bsnk

and is used as al"lay-up" point for gov
ernment boats cf all kinds. Two or

ol i the men in charge of the property ,
is all the place can boast of.
The "Dori , " an iron-clad , side-
wheel tug-boat , was mocred at this
point last September , and was under
the charge of Mr. Charles Davis , who
occupied one of the dwellings cloze to
; he river baiik. We found Mr. Davis
md from him loomed the following
particulars ot the dsaster : Tte
atorm ot Saturday night was fearful
n the extreme , and the od ! "Murky"
bahaved in a manner disgraceful to a
stream which has so long born a re
putation for its pacific nature. Waves
ran mountain high , breaking against
the high bank at the point and'throw-
ng the spray thirty feet high. At the
first signs of the approaching gale ,
everything on board of the "Doris"
waa made snug , "and every possible
precaution taken , but in vain. As the
storm increased the waves , aided by a
strong wind blowing inland , broke
over the little iron clad and tossed her
about as an egg shell on the ocean.
The "Doris1' stood the tempest brave-
Iv.and it was not until some time after
her ' wheel house" and wheel went by
the board that she gave up the
struggle and went down in eighteen
feet of water.
There was a lively sceneat the point
this morning. A gang of wreckers ,
under the charge of W. B. Spencer ,
of Raymond & Campbell's , of Council
Bluffs , wore busy with axe and ham
mer preparing for an effort , which will
be made to recover the remains of the
tug. A large hydraulic pump is being
placed in position , with the aid of
which , the sand , with which the hull
is filling , will bo washed out , thus aid
ing materially in the work of raising.
The boiler , machinery , and iron hull
of the "Doris" won't be very seriously
injured , but her woodwork was com
pletely wrecked by the waves before
ho settled.
Chas. West and James Murphy ,
two boatmen , took advantage of the
brisk breeze yesterday and indulged
in a miniature regatta , using skiffs
with head spread sails. After a dis
play of some neat "gibeing" and
"tacking , " West's boat crossed Mur
phy's on the lee bow and lead off with

guage of the sporting fraternity West
thinks his skiff can "yank the bun"

Prof. Emerson , of the State Uni-
erslty , delivered a lecture on the Or-
jgin and Development of Architecture.
Architecture commenced at the north
pole with the curved arch , and as it pro
gressed toward warmth it approached
the angle , until when the warmer
countries were reached the flit roof
was used. In the north roofs must
be steep to support heavy loads of
snow. Toward the south they must
be built to shed rain. In rainless
Esiypt they are made flat , for protec
tion from the sun. Different materials
determine the form of the building.
The human race desires to imitate-
rather than originate , as is shown in
the rude drawings of the savage , where
one copies rather than compares with
the original object , and make
such ccrrecticns as render it a
correct prrsontation. Greek ar
chitecture was the most per
fect. . The Romans copied only
it ? rougher parts. Temples in which
people worship God only , show true
architecture. After the Greek , the
Gothic had everything pointing up
ward toward heaven. Dark and
gloomy , with narrow windows , they
were fit places for the worship of dark
ages.

tertaining.

reporter of TBK IEE interviewed the
man and learned the following facts :
About two years ago ho married
a Mrs. Hall nt Lincoln , and
for a long time lived happily with her ,
until a man , Crawford , living in the
western part of the county , crossed
their path and shattered the bond of
love and union that bed made their
l < ves a pleasure. Crawford has been
in the habit of visiting Mrs. Watson
during the absence of her
liege lord. One day Watson
left home early in the morning , and
relumed at the usual hour for dinner ,
but , alas ! the honte was vacant , and he
wr.s informed by the neighbors that
his wife had gone off with Crawford in
a wagon. He followed his wife
to Crawford's residence in the coun
try , and a scene ensued , she
r -fusing to return until she was ready.
Wa son eays ho is not particular
about living with the woman if she
prefers another man , but he is "not
going to be bulldozed by Crawford. "
The sheriff has as yet failed to serve
the warrant , but further deleopmenta
may be looked for in a few days.
