Throwing Stones

The Denison News says people shook their heads when we publishsd the account of a stone weighing a ton falling on the Rick farm, blown there by the Savoy cyclone but elder Kone goes us one better. In his sermon on Sunday morning he spoke of sheep and cattle being carried through the air a distance of eighteen hundred miles by a cyclone. Elder, take our hat.1


EDITORIAL COMMENT by SavoyTexas.org: This article is not clear on the location of the Rick farm mentioned in the article, but I assume it is in Brenham, TX (The town where the article was printed). As the crow flies, Brenham is approximately 250 miles due South of Savoy
