Diamond Fields Advertiser - - OPINION -

A VERY heavy thun­der­storm vis­ited Bloem­fontein her­alded by a sud­den gale of wind. An ac­ci­dent of a se­ri­ous na­ture oc­curred at Fil­lis’ Cir­cus. The large mar­quee was crowded with nearly 2 000 spec­ta­tors, when the squall caught the tent which col­lapsed, bury­ing the en­tire au­di­ence. Six per­sons were in­jured.
