The jtuff had been sent here on consignment from a Chicago houso to J. R. Sharp, a hardware morchant. It is presumed th'at a bullet flred by a hunter from a riQo into the building lodged in some powder also in storage, and that the person lost hls life. The ground was torn up to a great depth tor soiiu' distiince, whlle trees and fences for many rods wore torn and twisted. Quite a number of trees wero pulled out by the roots. Tho glass in every farm liouse for miles around was shattered. (n this city the effect was disastrous to plate glass fronts, and windöws of numbera of dwellings ware blown out. Th ïhock camo while peoplo wore on thelr way to church, and threw childron and ladies down and causad IíkIíos to faint. All sorts of experioncoa are related by cltzens. The village of Bloomer, twelve miles distant from the scène, appers to iiavn feit the force more sevoraly than hare.
