Two Die When House Is Wrecked at Schwab City 
-----------------------------
Mrs. C.T. Parker and Baby Are Instantly Killed 
When Large Tree Is Blown Down on Home 
------------------------------
   "Mrs. C. T. Parker and 2-year-old baby were killed instantly when a tree blown down by the high wind last Friday night crashed through the roof of their house near Schwab City.  Mr Parker and five children, who were standing near, escaped
injury.  One of the girls was knocked down by the impact but was not seriously hurt. 
    It was one of the worst storms in the history of Polk county and the damage will amount to thousands of dollars.  The wind was accompanied by heavy rains."
