ItF-PliANTS CORN NEAR
HERE SECOND TIME
R. ,T. Straughnn, a well known and
successful farmer, living about three
miles north of McKlnney, has had to
plant his corn over the second time
on account of the frost. He states that
his wheat Is Improving but cannot
possibly make a normal crop. His
spring onts are looking fairly good.
Mr. Stranghun mowed down his first
crop of nlfitlfn Saturday. He states that
he will cut his cotton acreage down
this year to only five acres. He has
about too acres In cultivation and had
about 20 acres of cotton last year. In
Mr Straughan's opinion there Is little
inducement for farmers to plant any
cotton at all this year.

also visiting relatives In our city.
Five persons were killed outright, and four others died in
the City Hospital of McKinney or on the way as the result of
wounds received in the most destructive cyclone in the history
of Collin county which struck the little town of Melissa at 2:10
o'clock Wednesih> afternoon while there were hundreds of
people in town shopping. However, most of the people had
warning of the approaching tornado and scores sought places
of safety in storm cellars and others in whatever place they
could escape the storm's fury. One man crawled under a small
bridge and stood waist deep in water. He escaped unhurt. His
family went into a storm cellar.
Scenes of devastation and ruin whioh beggar description
exist in the little town today. Relief work which began short-
ly after the storm is fairly under way today. Directing a com-
mittee appointed hy Mayor Miller of McKinney, James T.
Oouch, local business man, was receiving contributions this
morning. He was being assisted by W. S. Smith, oounty superin-

blankets and clothing arrived there from Dallas. Much food
and clothing and merchandise was sent there from McKinney,
Denison and other plaoes.
Miss Alecia Brown, of Dallas, director of the Public Wel-
fare Department has been at Melissa since Thursday afternoon
administering aid to the storm victims. The committees from
McKinney and Melissa are on the job in looking after the needs
of the Melissa citizens.
Many telegrams of cash donations are being received from
Chamber of Commerce, Red Cross, individuals, firms and cor-
porations from over the state.

The cyclone victims, who are patients at the new oity
hospital were all reported to be resting comfortably today. They
have recovered from the mental shock of the tornado, and are
grateful that they escaped with their lives.
The cyclone victims are enjoying every attention at the
hands of the hospital corps. Interest is also being taken in these
patiento, as well as other patients in the new hospital by the
people of McKinney.
The institution is crowded with visitors each day, who are
