A heavy rain and a violent wind was aecompanied by liail stones of ininiense size, some being as large as walnuts and of an irregular shape, resembling in a 8mall way the serrated peaks of a mountain range. The ground was moist from the frequent rains and wlien the wind storm struck large trees it was not long in uprooting very many in all parts of' the town and vicinity. Some damage was done to roofs and to Windows by flying debris. Had the liail storm continued long lt would have ruined the unharvested grain as well as all kinds of fruit.
