Terrific Rainstorm


Owenton, Ky., July 9. - One of the heaviest rain and windstorms in the history of the town and county visited here Wednesday night, before midnight. Many acres of tobacco and corn were ruined by the overflowing creeks. Corn, rye, oats and wheat were blown flat, a great deal of it being badly ruined. Much rye and what, though, had already been harvested. Large limbs were blown off of trees, and six large barns in Jonesville neighborhood were blown down. Water rose about a half a foot in the hotel owned by Mrs. Mary Spicer, at Monterey, on the Kentucky River
