SAND AND HAIL STORM
Last Wednesday evening about
7:30 a dark cloud was seen in the
northwest which reminded us of
the early days. It was not very
long in getting here and for
time the atmosphere was filled
with sand, making it so dark
that it was almost impossible to
see across the street. There was
no hail here in town, but much
damage was done to crops by the
wind and hail, west and north
west of town, while the wind did
considerable damage to young
cotton north and east of town.
Reports from different commun-
ities state more or less damage to
barns and out buildings. The
City Bakery had a sign blown
down, one window broke out and
a screen door blown off, while
the Progress office suffered the
loss of two windows and the pap-
on the ceiling and west wall was
considerably damaged by the
wind and water. As far as we
are able to learn there was noth-
ing but slight damage to proper-
