Destructive Tornado in Kansas

EMPORIA, Kan., Sept. 9.----Emporia and vicinity was visited by a tornado about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon which did $60,000 worth of damage at the state normal school. Considerable other damage was done down town. Clark's wholesale furniture store was unroofed and the stock of goods badly damaged. But meager reports have been received from the surrounding country, and it is feared the damage has been great. At Hartford, twelve miles southeast of here, several houses are reported blown down, and one woman, Miss Bessie Henry, dangerously injured. At Neosha Rapids a church and several buildings were destroyed.
