Many of the handsome residences in

was done on Sixth, Seventh, Eighth
and Ninth itreets, south along Choteau
venue and in th tenement-house dis
trict. Houses are to be seen in all
stage of demolition, from the loss ot
roof to complete destruction. In some
of them, the front walls had fallen
out, and tbe tenant performed their
household duties, cared for their inju

th crowds on the streets. From the
door ot many ot the partially wrecked
houses fluttered black badge of mourn

The path of the storm i about halt
a mile wide and over four mile long,
weeping through the thickly populated
oathweet portion ot I Eastland and
across th river into East St Louis.
Colonel Wetmore, manager of the
Liggett A Myers tobacco plaut, whioh

will be, be aay. almost a total loss,

and hospital ara fairly ohoken with

of all human bapa, and through thm

impossible to make an aoonrate esti

The scene is simply appalling.
From tbe river bank to tha national
stockyards, a distance of over a mile,
scarcely a building ia left standing.
Tbe greatest slaughter was done on the
ialand eo -called. Here was located th
Vandalia freight booae and general
offices, the river boats', warehouses and
humble abodes of worMingmen. Noth

formerly houses and freight depot

there are from twenty to twenty-five

at the National stokysrda.
In com pari aon to its rise, the fatali
ties in East bt Louis greatly exceed
those on this side of the river. Tbe
larger part of tbe central portion of tbe
city ia raxed to the ground, while on '
tha fists along the river bank north of '
the Ead bridge, not a house ia left
