"From latest reMrts which arecoii

this sudden tloixl a most terrible storm
was raging, the wind blowing about
eighty miles an hour. Many of the
dead have Imm-ji uncovered; others are
still under the debris; others were car

give, at this time, a reliable report
!i t. the number of deaths. From
estimates "made by reliable person

theiiest" pillic and private estalisH
