Stirring stori-cs of the rescue of the
refugees in the floods wept territory of
upper Arkansas have reached Memphis
Monday. One thousand or more
persons, marooned in Wyanoke, Ark.,
-were brought to Memphis late Monday.
They were rescued through

the heaviest specific loss must be

the loss of live stock and the damage to

has been small. Probably thirty,
fatalities would meet the conservative

Break Enlarges Flooded Area.
The yellow torrent of the Mississippi
river, rushing southward Tuesday,
tore another great gash in the dikes
guarding the fertile acres of the valley.
The crevasse occurred sixty
miles north of Memphis in the embankment
that held the stream off the
central part of St. Francis levee territory
in Arkansas. This new bearch
that had seemed imminent for a week
or more simply adds to lie great flood
reach in Northeast Arkansas. Alreay
part of the district had been inundated,
because"of a break fifty miles below
the Golden Lake crevasse. Apparently
there will be no loss of life.
Probably Great Suffering.
In the fastnesses of the Northeast
Arkansas country are settlements that
the outside world rarely ever hears of.
There is a possiblity that many such
places in the inundated districts of
Arkansas have been overrun by the
tide. Doubtless there has been tre^

The situation in the river's reaches
south of Memphis seems unchanged in
the last 12 hours up to 10 o'clock Tuesday
night The crucial point in the
fight was at Greenville, north of Vicksburg.
Here the flood water threatened
to top the levee at any moment.
The dike proved strong and government
engineers' directing the fight say
they will holfi their own against the
Many Flee From Danger.
A great many persons have left the
city of Greenville, which lies almost
directly under the levee. In the outlying
country farmers and villagers have
taken to higher land and live stock

The possibility of loss of life is remote.
If the break were to occur,

The effect of the Golden Lake break
will be to stay the crest of the flood

Another day of raiding in the .Blue

pan out. On one of the lonely roads
the posse found a basket of food under
a laurel hush, with a white handkerchief
tied upon it. The posse
watched the point all day, expecting
the outlaws would come to get their
rations, but the manoeuvre was a
vain one. The posse also raided a log
