HAIL KILLS A MAN
Muskogee, Indian Territory, June 2 - Word has just reached this city of a terrific cyclone and hailstorm at Paden a town in the Creek Nation on the Fort Smith and Western railroad.,
Barney Fixico was killed outright by a hail stone and another man name unknown, ran into a storm cellar and reached out to shut the door when a hailstone struck his arm, breaking it. Hailstones weighing 2 1/2 lbs each.
Nearly every window in the town of Paden was broken and the hail made sieves of the shingle roofs.
Great damage was done to crops and livestock.
The cyclone missed the town but tore a strip through the forest south of town several miles long and 1200 yards wide. So far as can be learned no lives were lost there.
