Terrific storm: A terrific storm of wind visited this city continuing with unabated fury. The belfry and steeple of the new Catholic church as swept away down to the roof, but the building was not materially injured. The stage from Genoa was blown out of the road. The resident of Captain F. D. Todd’s stable blew down and caught a calf inside. Telegraph poles, wires, hats, shingles and fragments of loose awnings filled the air. Then the wind died away and a gentle rain set in.
