Floods in the Ohio liver from its

Early today the water is still rising

damage to property is reported. Rail

3,000 stato troops to proceed by special

LINCOLN, Neb,, March 3i.-Geogollsts
of tho state university are making an
exhaustive survoy of the swath of tho
tornado which swept through eastorn Ne
braska lust Sunday. The storm from Its
origin is being traced to Its end and
photographs and records of all kinds are
being amassed In profusion In the offices
of the geology building at the university.
Three men have been working for n
good share of the last week on the sur
vey, the number Including Prof. Barbour,
head of the department; Prof. Schramm
and David While, an assistant. Both of
the latter were out all day Saturday, Mr.
Schramm working in and about Omaha
and Mr. White near Berlin. Prof. Har
mour was nt work In his offlco compiling
as much as possible the facts so far
gathered concerning the tornado,
Orlsrlnntrs Nrnr Lincoln.
From the work so far done by the
geologists, it Is evident that the storm
first made Its appearance not far from
Lincoln. Tho origin of the tornado Is
thought to have been directly north or
Bethany and probably the first work or
destruction done was to tho farm of
Fred Humphreys, nine miles north.
With tho discrimination whloh marked
Its entire course, the storm at tho farm
swung over the furm houso and picked
up a chicken house, but 100 yards tn its
rear. No remains of the chicken houso
have been, discovered, although a search
has been made of tho nearby country,
.and it Is now thought the small build
ing was picked up by the force of the
wind, ground into tinder and distributed
for miles over the countryside.
A peculiar story was picked up by the
geologists In their search for the origin
of tho storm near Bethany. It was to
the effect that a horse was. aware that
a storm was approaching and refused
absolutely to obey the commands of its
rider to go further along tho road. Some
time afterward the storm cloud made Its
appearance. The tornado is believed to
have crossed tho roadway not far from
where the horso balked and refused to
Three Distinct Storms,
From the work so far done, It Is evi
dent that three distinct tornadoes did
all the damage In the state, the three
progressing eastward along parcllel linos.
The main storm was the one which
struck Omaha and which originated near
Bethany. The origin of the other two
have not been absolutely located as yet,
but one passed through Tutan and the
other through Berlin.
The tornado covered as much If not
mum teriltory than any other on record.
The usual distance which ono of the
terrific storms covers before Its energy
Is spent Is approximately fifty miles.
This one originated near Bethany and
traveled on nearly a straight line to
Omaha. That distance Is between fifty
and sixty miles. It crossed the rtver Into
