VIENNA, Nov. 1. Six weeks
of steady rains broken by but few
dry days, have wrought great
damage throughout Austria.
The tower of the village .church
in Tauf Kirclien, Upper Austria,
collapsed this week, killing two
persons and injuring several. oth
ers. Salzburg . Cathedral, conr
taining the famous Rupert Chapel,
is. so badly damaged that public
subscriptions have been" opened
for a repair fnntf. In Vienna
hundreds of buildings are report;
ed as seriously damaged by the
continued ,j downpour. In this
city construction almost univer
sally is of brick faced'witn about
an inch of plaster, ruled to imi
tate stone. Everywhere this
plaster covering is peeling, expos
ing the bhck, and if frost should
come before the buildings get
dry. very heavy damages are pre
dicted.'' The situation is aggra

been virtually no repair work
done since, the first -year of the
