An Area of 200 Square Miles Affected by
kainand W in J - Many Fields
of Grain H ere IH.
St. Louis. Sin., July 7. Thursdny
morning t-U-Kt':idiU- roports bi-r;in to
arrive in this olty of rains at western
points. These reports grew In number
Kriifciy anil covered u large territory In
dicating that the eastern water filed of
the Koi-ky Mountains, from the Ne
braska and Iowa lines to Texas, was
sw pt by a storm. Friday nlnht the
severest blow came. Reports of loss of
life and destruction of property came
with every telegram, and the down
pour which was at rlrt regarded as a
Westing, grew Into a wave of devasta
tion. Fields of grain that promised the
most bountiful yield In many ytura are
today swept bare- of vegetation. In
several Instances the seas of rain were
abetted In Choir work of destruction by
tornadoes. It Is too early yet to sum up
the loss, but the total must be appal
ling, and those to whom the angry ele
ments spared life have little left to sus
tain It.
The stories of the storm are so sim
ilar that a statistical summary is all
there Is left to tell.
The storm's focus embraced an area
of iOO square miles with 'the southwest
ern corner of .Missouri as the center.
The greatest lows of life Is reported
from Winona. Mo., where eleven corpses
have been found, with as many more
missing. At Baxter Springs In western
Kansas, five were killed and eleven se
riously Injured by a cyclone that ac
companied the storm. One was drowned
at Columbus and two at Ottawa, Kan
sas. At Van Buren, Arkansas, a wo
man and her child were drowned.
A Family Disappears.
A family of five were encamped an
the banks of Fish cretk Vn i;he Indian
territory. Yesterday nothing of them
nor their belongings was found except
a part of their wagon on a pile of drift
wood. At Thomasvllle. Mo., where the rain
fall was four Ir.ches in oce hour, five
lives were lost. .
L'neor.firmed reports are received as
ito loss of life as follows: Three at Fay
etteville. Ark.; one at Paoli. Kan.; one
at Richards. Kan., and six of a hunting
party In the Indian territory. This
gives a known and probable loss of
forty-three lives. This total will be in
creased when the receding waters per
mit a thorough search.
The above summaries gives only a
fraction of loss in property. The
greatest burden falls upon the farmers,
as the season Is too far spent to plant
new crops, and suffering must surely
follow in. the storm's wake. Details of
individual suffering and experiences re
call the horrors of tthe Johnstown dis
aster. Storms KNewhcre.
Chicago, July ".With little warning
of its terrific death-dealing force and
destructive character, a wind and rain
storm, such as Chicago has not seen

until tomorrow, but it is kr.ow-in for a
certainty tonight that two lives were
lost on Lake Michigan by the capsizing
of boats.
Topeka, Kan., July 7. A htavy wind

of the storm were destroyed, and great
damage was done to crops. '
Lake Geneva, Wis., July 7. Six per
sons were drowned by the sudden cap
sizing of a pleasure boat on Lake Gene
va this afternoon. A furious tornado
struck the town at 4.39. Buildings were
unroofed, trees uprooted and several
buildings moved from their founda
tions. A few minutes before the storm
broke, ithe steam launch Dispatch was
chartered by Father Hogan and Miss
Hogan, of Harvard, Ills., and a man
thought to be Dr. Franz, his wife and
child. A heavy nea. struck the little
craft and It suddenly went down with

prorogued on July 24. There will be no
queen's speech.
The Marquis of Salisbury, In the
house of lords, replied to ithe speech
which Lord Hosebery recently delivered
before the Eighty club, and in which
he attacked the house of lords. The
premier traversed Lord IRosebery's
statement that the house of lords had
legislative preponderance. On ithe con
trary, he asserted, the house of lords
had no share in. the votes by which
governments were displaced nor in the
provision of funds for the public ser
vices. Continuing, the Marquis of Salisbury
asked what the lords had done to In
duce Lord Rosebery to submit a pro
posal which had not been heard within
parliament for 250 years. The house of
lords merely rejected the evicted ten
ants' bill, which h asserted, was Im
practicable In the shape presented.

less saloons doing business than on

the cheese or crackers, could get what
ever they called for to drink. This
was changed today at all of 'the hotels.
