Slormi In Michigan. A eeries of storms have swept over various parts of the state in .the last f cv days, wliich tor the amountof daroagedone and the destruction accomplished are uuprecedented in the memory of the "oldest inhabitant." In Grand Rapids trees innumerable in all parts of the eity were uprooted, and torn housi'6 and buildings v ereunroofed, f enees and bill boards wure Jashed to the ground, smokestaeks leveled, ;himneys sent flying, awningstorn into shreds, Diithouses knocked over, and even sidewalks ivere lifted bodily rom the ground and carried into the streets. Haring the prvalence of the imrricsme the rain feil in torreutsand the eleetiio fluid dartefi around with so mucti promissuousness as to be really terrible. During the storms much damage was done iu all parts of the eity, and severai residences and barus wcre struck by the lightning. In portions of the city near the river wellb, cisterns, cellar and rivy vaults are all filled to the top with water, inü when the floods reeede the probabilities re that the conlents of the various places witl e very generally mixed. It is feared much llness will jirevail. Reports from out-laying townships near 3rand Kapids indícate tbat the showers di] an inmense atnount of damage. Fruit trees in very direction were uprooted and snapped off. Vn. Harrison loi-t l.OÓt' peach trees in Walker wuship. John Graham 400, Mrs. Smith 300 nd ot.hiTS suiferi d to a greater r )-&s extent.

Theroads are in an almost impassae condition and communication with the ountry almost cntirely cut off. flut few of ie bridges remain, and the roadways are in uany instanees washed out. The logs in Grand River are causing much pprehension The boom at the big diyide bout thrc.e milis above the city broke, and 60,00,000 feet of lot came sailing down to joiu he 20,000,000 feet jam whieh is held back by ie Detroit, Grand Haven and Milwaukefi raiload bridge. For a distancc of six miles the ver is oue solid mass of logs piled up in some ilaces to the height of 15 and ÜÜ feet abovc the evel of the water, and paeked nearly to the .ver bed. Should the logs break loose every ridge on Grand River will doubtless be arried away and the logs at Grand Haven rowded out into the lake. Every thing dcjcnds on the strengeh of the railroad bridge. Reports from Grand Haven indícate that tüe ig booms are in a precarious conditiou, all ivailabl'3 force is devoted to driving spiles and trengthening the booms. The water is very ligh, and should it rise mueh more nothiug an save the logs. AT EATON RAPIDS. The most terrible cyclone ever known iutbat setion pasned over Eaton Rapids. Starting wo miles southcast of that city, it pursued au rregular course iu as easterly direction and wept a clean path from two to four roiis in vidth. Begiuning near Xatbaniei 7'aylor's arm, it tore down a large barn in whieh were stored a graiu separator, mower, hay tender, grain drill and virious other tools. It carried jieces to all parts of the field, rafters stickiug straight up iu the ground so lirmly imbedded that a man could uot pull tbem out. A. Nesbit's Lew barn, just complettd ot a cost of over $000, was completely ruined, only a small Dortion remaining in position. A most miraculous escape was that of Leroy Shermau, who was in the barn at the time, and eaw it all, except a small part where he 6tood, swept away. He only received a few slight bruiees. Kuj Pcrrine's house was unrooted, grnary and h -pen swept away, and a large hole was dug by the wind as large asan ordinary cellar, throUKh heavy 6od. Eugene Henry sustained the heaviest los?. His house co.itaining his wife and six children, was literally blown to atoms. His wife was seriously injured. Two of the children who were on the bed were found 44 rods from tbc site of the house dead and three others badly injured, while the baby, asleep in its crib, did not receive a scratch, although the crib wat blown no one knows where. Large apple trees were torn up by tbe rooti and carried 20 rods or more. A "Round Oak' stove was carried across Grand river ani. smashed, while bundies of wheat were carried to the tops of trees and haug ithere. Fences and in fact everything in its path, were totallv ruiued. At Onondaga a woinan and two chil dren were killed. The tornado did much damage in the wes Dart oí Leslie township, next to Onondaga The house of Mrs. Elizabeth Barlow was piek edupbythe furious wind and actually torn to pieces, heavy timbers beine; carried severa rMrs Barlow who was in the house was instautly killed. Hei body n found about two rodsfrom the spot where th house bid stood, and it was seen that her u:k had been broken. A barn near the Barlow house was also wrecked and several other barn "vere demolished, nnroofed, or otherwise dam a"ed Orehards were badly demoralized in th track of the storm, stiong trees being uproot cd or twisted off, and where the tornado passed throueh heavy woods the tops of the trees were wrn off and carried far and widc oyer the country. The end of a brick house in the village was blowin Altbough the introduction of horse railroads in Germany is of a recent date, fortv-four towns of the empire have al reaiïy constructed lines.
