A Cyclone
For the first time in many years a cyclone was experienced in Jackson County, last Wednesday evening. We have had severe wind storms, but the whirling, twisting deadly cyclone has not been a frequent visitor.
The cyclone swept through the town of Millston, about five miles east of the village of Millston, about five o'clock Wednesday evening. It cut a swath from two to six rods wide, destroying everything in its pathway, twisting off large trees and crushing buildings into splinters.
The whirling monster continued in a southeasterly course across the towns of Millston and Knapp. Mrs. Jasper Poff was in her home about four miles from Warrens when the storm struck it. She had her baby in her arms. Both were blown through the side of the building. Mrs. Poff was badly mutilated and instantly killed. The little Babe lived until the next day before it succommed to its injuries. Mr. Poff was on his way home from Camp Douglas when the storm passed, and only learned of his terrible loss as he came to his wrecked dwelling near which were the body of his wife and his badly injured baby. Thier other two children were also injured, but survived.
