A party of five Italian laborers employed
m railroad work about six miles below
'-'Council Bluffs at Island Park-saw the
litorm approaching from Bellevue and ran
L'or shelter. The storm overtook them, but
fortunately none of the men was sertausly
injured, though all received more or less
flight Injuries.
1 A. Wright and his daughter and a Miss
Wlcholl had a narrow escape. Aa the storm
struck they ran to the cellar of their store
in the old town of Bellevue. They had
lust reached the cellar when the building
jWas blown away from their heads. The
I jloor of the structure caved in and they
s-scaped Injury because they happened to
kneeling close to a barrel in the cellar,
.Which held up the debris. Mr. Wright lost
his house and store and all he had In the

I Story of Bellevae College.
Bellevue college, though aerlously Injured,
I ound cause for congratulation and thanks
giving In the fact that Ita property losses
Were covered by Insurance and not a stu

The property loss to Clarke and Lowrle

reme. The Inaurance waa held by Creigh,

Scarcely had the storm done Its work at
the college until an army of faithful per
sons waa at work clearing away the debrla
and preparing for reconstruction and re

Rev. E. H. Jenks and Robert Dempatar
of Omaha, trustees of the college, were
on the campus to lend a helping hand.
Many other Omaha people went down.
Words of praise were heard on all sides
for the splendid nerve and coolness
shown by the college girls during the
storm. They went to the basement of
their halls and listened to counsel, although
some wanted to go Into the open. Had they
not listened to 'wise counsel they would
have been caught In the debris from Clarke
hall and many probably would have been
The Japanese cook In the kitchen at the

Omaha, so his first thought waa for the

Chester Jonks and several of the s:l
dents went onto the hill west of the col
lege to watch the storm aa it was passing
over Fort Crook. The storm swerved and
came in their direction, but they escaped
Injury by lying flat on the ground. From
their position they could see the roofs be
ing torn from the buildings at Fort Crook
and also saw several houses to the west
blown to pieces.
The boys, who- had gone to the hill to the
weat of the campus for safety, said they
were able to see three distinct funnels
traveling along which were lifting and
twisting everything which hsppened to
get In the way. These funnels, probably
accounted for the different directions In
which the roofs of the buildings were

Telegram.) A tornado forming near the
German Lutheran church, five miles South
west of here struck Louisville about 4
o'clock Tuesday afternoon and damaged
residence and business property to the ex
tent of about $75,0iiO. The first effect of
the storm's fury was felt at a clay pit,
two miles southwest of Louisville, operatod
by the Avery Brick company, where the
8-year-old son of the foreman, E.l Hester,
was Instsntly killed. The residence was de
molished and Mrs. Hester and another of
her children wer so aerlously Injured by
flying timbers that their recovery Is In
The storm cloud moved slowly toward
Louisville and Its approach was noted sev
eral minutes before It struck the north part
of the business section, which was directly
In the path of the tornado and this saved
a great many of the business houses. The
west side of Main Street sustained the
greater damage. Alloway'a livery barn was
wrecked and six horses were burled under
the debris, but none were badly hurt. A
small dwelling adjoining the barn was over
turned and blown to the rear of another
building. The fronts of John Burns' tem
perance hall, Drake's restaurant and the
Farmers' meat markets were blown out.
The Bank of Commerce building was badly
shaken and may have to come down. The
Burlington depot Is a complete wreck, only
a small portion of the building being left.
The semaphore was blown down, but th
operator had crawled undera small culvert
nearby and escaped uninjured. A string
of box cars were blown off the track, the
Free Methodist church was overturned and
rests on Its roof within six Inches of the
beck door of a nearby dwelling. The two
barns belonging to Charles Phelps were
destroyed, but his house was untouched.
George Woods cashier of the local bank,
had Just " completed a fine barn on his
premises which was totally destroyed. The
only person Injured In the village, beside
the Hester family, waa Mrs. Masters, an
aged woman residing near the Burlington
depot, her arm being broken by falling
tlmbera when the storm struck her houfte.
Main street was lined on either side by
large trees, these were hurled Into the
street, adding greatly to the wrecked ap
pearance of the town.
A relief train was run down from Flstts
mouth, and people came from all the nearby
towns under the Impression that help was
needed, but owing to the fortunate escape
of the townspeople their Assistance was
not required.
At the Lyman ft Woodruff sand pits,
which are operated by Loulavllle laborers,
considerable damage was done. Seven
loaded sand care were lifted from the track
and thrown into an adjoining pond. A
horse was carried nearly 200 yards and
dropped to the ground uninjured. A por
tion of an elevator was blown away ,but
no one was Injured there.
Many Interesting experiences were told
and numerous peculiarities of the tdrnado's
work Is coming to light. Most of the mer
chants and others stayed in their places
of business, holding the doors against the
wind and hoping for the beat, which was
all they could do. Many Uvea undoubtedly
would have been lost If the storm had been
as severe in that part of town aa it was
near the depot.
A man driving Into town Just aa the wind
came was blown from hia buggy Into a
large tree and just then the tre blew down
and he was deposited on the ground with
out a scratch.
It ia a hard blow for Louisville and some
time will be required for its cltlxena to
recoyer from, the shock, but ' the town's
progresslveness will soon assert Itself and
new bulldlnga replace the ones destroyed.
A large force Is already at work clearing
the streets and private Individuals who
lost their homes and other property are
receiving assistance, both financial and
otherwise, so all the sufferers will be taken
care of. All telephone and telegraph lines
were blown down, but all the companies
ave forcea of men at repair work and
communication will soon be re-established.

Missouri Pacific railroad officials re
ported that while their bridge at Louisville
was "somewhat twisted and damaged by
the storm, prompt work had put them In
condition to permit trains passing over It.
The evening passenger to Weeping Water
and . Auburn, wtilch passed Louisville
shortly after the storm, got over without
trouble and returned Wednesday morning.
Three freight trains were also passed over
the bridge during the night.
The damage to Missouri Paclflo prop

cars being blown Into the aand pits and
The Burlington road had a washout on
the Iowa side between Council Bluffs and
Paclflo Junction, which made it neces
ssry to run all trains by Plattsmouth
from 8 o'clock, Tuesday evening until about
10 o'clock Wednesday morning, when the
tracks were repaired and passed the trains
to Kansas City.
Burlington passenger No. 1, which runs
