New Ulm Tornado Freaks

A horse which happened to be standing at the brewery in harness was picked up, carried twelve rods and lodged in a tree.  He was released without injury and was on duty to-day.

Dr. Berry, of New Ulm, had a boy patient, of about 12 years, lying on a lounge, in a frame house.  The house was picked up and carried some 200 yards over the tops of trees and demolished, carrying the boy with it.  The boy when found was unconscious of his situation, thinking he had simply fallen off the lounge.  His arm was broken and his elbow dislocated.

A piece of board was driven through the wall of the Catholic school house at New Ulm, a brick building, while school was in session, lodging in the desk where the teacher was sitting, injuring no one.
