TORONADO AT DOLLIVER

Several Barns Blown Down and
Considerable Damage Done

Dolliver, June 25-a tornado of marked proportions marked this town at 1:30 p.m. yesterday. It moved very slowly and observed coming at least three minutes before it stuck the corporation line. It struck the town on the southwest corner, moving to the northeast, and totally demolishing substantial barns owned by L. G. Wagoner, R. Wertz and C. E. Sullivan. After passing it was observed moving on towards the northwest, as far as the eye could follow. No lives were lost as far as heard from. Much consternation prevailed.
