the rain clouds to the southwest appeared
to grow heavier and immediately took on
a greenish hue.
Black Fonnel Appears.
Suddenly out of them a black funnel
shaped cloud formed and rapidly moved
in a northeasterly direction north of
Spajdlng. The ctoud seemed to drop to
the earth at Intervals and then suddenly
bound into the air, only to drop again a
little farther on. The cloud that was
almost head on toward Spalding quickly
veered to the north and almost as quickly
changed Its course to northeast. Half a
mile east of town It dropped and appar
ently picked up the farm house of C. W.
Haggarty, carrying it along several rods
and then dashing It to the earth a com

proportions of a cyclone, the tall switch

caught numerous barns and outhouses,
wrecking or partially destroying them,
but Missing all the homes untU It reached
that of Thomas Kelley, two and one-Halt
miles east of Spalding.
, It is reported that Mr. Kelley saw the
storm coming, but did not have time to
get into the cellar before It struck. The
Kelley house was instantly destroyed and
Mrs. Kelley killed by being crushed be
neath the wreckege. J Mr. . Kelley was
seriously Injured internally . and It Is
likely that he will' die.
From the Kelley farm the tornado, or
cyclone, moved rapidly northeast toward

At about the time when the tornado waa
passing over Greeley county, another,
though covering a more limited area
struck Madison county at a point a few
miles south and east of the city of Mad
ison, destroying the house of John Wet
land and seriously Injuring him and his
sister. This tornado demolished all the
buildings on a score of other farms. A
