General Destruction by the lCo-
St. Lovis, May SS. When tho sun
rose on St. Louis nnd vicinity this
morninp It showed a sceno of terriblo
ruin ami disaster, wind, rain and tiro
linviiifr combined in a mission of de
struction. At least 500 lives woro lost
'n this city and as many more in East
st. Louis while thousands were in
iurcii, many so severely that they
cannot recover. Tho exact number of
dead ami injured will, however, not bo
known for many days for tho dobria
of ruined buildings undoubtedly covers
scores of people. Tho damage and de
struction of property will aptrreputo
many millions of dollars, but tho ex
act amount cannot be estimated with
anv degree of certainty.
The tornado, which caused this de
struction, struck tho city yesterday
afternoon at 5:15 o'clock and soon
swept to East St. Louis. The greatest
damago on tliis sido of tho river was
inflicted within a three milo strip
along tho Mississippi Many buildings
were totally wrecked by tho force of
tho wind and others were unroofed,
while very few escaped some injury.
fcigns and cornices were torn offv shada
trees and everything else suffered.
Health Commissioner Starkloff, two
hours after tho tornado had passed.
feared that tho dead would reach 200
and that not fewer than 1,000 persons
had sustained serious injuries. By
midnight reporters of the Associated
press had visited all of the stricken
portions of the city and suburbs
and Dr. Starkloffs estimates wcro
fully confirmed. Tho dead wcro
found in all parts of tho
devastated section, while crushed be
neath falling walls, hurled against tho
fides of buildings, struck by flying
timbers, cut by tho shattered glass,
shocked by the network of down wires,
humanity suffered in ways innumer
able and tho names of all the injured
will never be known. Enough were
recorded at the dispensaries last night
to show how widespread were the tor
In tho flashes of lightning last night
the city hospital looked like a ruin.
The new surgical ward was partially
demolished, l'ortions of tho other
buildings were unroofed. Walls were
cracked. Kvea in tho darkness the
physicians began tho removal of pa
tients to temporary quarters, fearful
that the strained structure would gc
douu In a general collapse.
The city hall and tho Four Courti
were in tho path of the cloud as it
passed from tho city hospital toward
the river, and both were damaged.
Part of tho jail wall was demolished
Convention hull lost a pirt of the roof
on the eastern end and tho east enc
was punctured In sevcr.il places by fly
ing missiles, and sustained some de
rangement of tho interior. Ten days'
work and tho expenditure of S5,00(
will make the hall good again.
In the district between Sixth stteei
aiM the river northward from Chouteat
acnue, the tornado tore a diagona
path. The district comprises businesi
houses, many of them of the oldei
type. Every building within thi
path sustained damage. Smokestack)
and chimneys were toppled over,
walls were leveled and roofs wen
lifted. Thousands of windows wen
broken and miles of telegraph and
telephone wires were left in a nctworl
on tho ground. Through this distric'
the streets aro impassable.

pearanco was that of waste and wreck.
The death dealing cloud crossed the
river at such an angle as to strike and
wreck the upper works at tho east end
of the Eads brtdgo and to sweep a part
of East St. Louis. In comparison to
its size tho fatalities and losses in East
5t. Louis greatly exceed thoso on this
side of tho river. Tho larger part of
the central portion of tho city is razed

Down wires, wild currents of electric
ity, crushed buildings, all contributed
'o this element of destruction. The
alarm system was paralyzed. Ap-
I'roncncs Wero blocked. A 8200,000
conflagration on tho St. Louis side was
supplemented by a dozon lesser fires.
In East St. Louis a mill was burned
and two other considerable losses were
sustained. To tho enormous total Ores
added at least 8300,000. Such another
night of horror may St. Louis never

THE ST. LOUIS HORROR.
Cater Reports Fully Confirm the Terror ot
the Storm Marching (or the Dead (let
tin nt the Facta.
St. Louis, May 2a When darkness
temporarily interrupted the search for
storm victims last night, 315 people
were known to be dead on both sides
of the river, and although the com
plete death list will never bo known,
it is believed that It will approximate
400 in tho two cities. Tho number of
the injured is even larger and many
of the maimed cannot survive. The
property loss will roach well Into tho
millions, but insurance people, fire
men and police, alike refuse to hazard
even a guess at accurate figures. The
miles of wrecked buildings, as yet un
explored, and the numerous collapsed
factories, toward the investigation of
which little has beon made, may hide
almost nny number of bodies, ns the
police have boon unable to secure any
thing like au accurate list of tho miss
ing. In tho factory districts many of tho
employes on duty at tho timo tho storm
broko wero without relatives in ho
city, and their disappearance would
scarcely be noted, oven though they
bo buried in tho ruins. It is believed
by tho police, too, that, owing to the
suddenness with which tho crash
came, many tramps and homeloss ones
sought shelter among tho buildings
which were leveled, and that nothing
will be known of their death until per
haps weeks hence their bodies are
found. The list of known dead in St.
Louis is IGOand in East St. Louis 146.
Hundreds of homes are In ruins, doz
ens of manufacturing plants and doz
ens of business houses are wrecks.
many steamboats are gone to the bot
tom of the river and others are dis
mantled. Railroads of all kinds have
suffered great loss and wire and pole
using companies have weeks of toil
and largo expenditures of money to
face "before thev will bo in satisfactory
shape again. The most furious work
of the storm was along Rutger street,
Lafayette and Chouteau avenues and
tho contiguous thoroughfares cast of
Jefferson avenue. Tho houses aro In
the streets, with tho roofs underneath,
burled by brick and mortar. Under
tho brick and mortar aro household
goods of every description, and
on top of all aro uprooted trees and
tangled masses of wires. There is not
a tree nor a building standing in Lafay
ette park. Tho wreck of tho city hos
pital is so surrounded by wreckage
that it is barely possible to reach it.
Mauy of the handsomo residences on
Fourteenth street and about Lafayette
park are ruined, but the most dama?e
was done on Sixth, Seventh, Eighth
and Ninth and south along Chouteau
avenue, in the tenement house dis
trict. Many churches also suffered
from tho storm. The path of the
storm is about a half mile wide and
over four miles lonp.swceping through
tho thickly populated southwest por
tion of Eastland and across tho river
into East St. Louis.
CoL Wctmorc, manager of tho Lig
gett & Myers tobacco plant, which was
wrecked, estlmatos the entire property
damage at S25,000,000, which wltl be,
he says, almost a total loss, owing to
tho lack of cyclone Insurance. Other
estimates range from S15, 000,000 to S30,
000,000, but tho majority of them are
close to that mado by Col. Wctmore.
Tho following official statement has
been furnished the Associated press:
"The convention auditorium was
practically uninjured by tho great
storm, tho only damage being that
sotno of the light roof covering on the
southeast corner of tho building was
blown off. Tho damage enn all bo re
paired in a very few days. Thero is
not the slightest doubt but that the
building will bo perfectly restored
and In first-class condition long before
the day tho convention is to meet."
ACKOSS Tlin 1UVEU.
East St. Louis, May 29. This
city is in ruins. The tornado which
swept down upon tho city Wednesday
night obliterated block after block of
business houses and dwellings, and
left behind in its red trail of death
scores of human beings buried beneath
the walls of flattened buildings or
crushed to death in the streets by tho
flying debris. The improvised morgues
and hospitals arc fairly choked
with dead, some crushed and bat
tered out of all human shape,
and through them flow a steady
stream of hysterical wo'raen and grim
faced men looking for their missing

ones, it is inmost impossible to maico
the various morgues and ut at. Mary's
hospital thero are 50. Six are in the
Dig Four freight house ruins. How
many more there aro scattered about
the city in private houses it is impossi
ble to tell, but a conservative estimate
would place tho total number at at
least 150. Tho sceno is simply
appalling. From tho river bank
to tho Rational stock yards,
a distance of over a mile,
scarcely a building is left standing.
The greatest slaughter was dono on
tho island, so called. 'Hero were lo
cated the Vandalia freight house and
general office. Of the river boats'
warehouse and humble abodes of
workingmen nothing is left standing.
The place where formerly housos and
freight depot woro standing were lit
erally swept by the fury of tho storm.
An appeal for aid has been mado by
tho East St Louis relief committee,
who state that It is safe to say that
0,000 families aro rendered homoless.

national bank of the city, will receive

ST. LOUIS LOSSES.
Dorites Still Heine round and the Death
Llit Increased Property Losses.
St. Louis, May 31. Thero still ex
ists about as much uncertainty as to
the actual number of people killed and
the amount of property damago as on
the first morning of tho disaster.
Scores of dead have been Identified,
but no one is willing to venture a guess
as to how many bodies may bo in the
ruins of tho hundreds of buildings as
yot unexplored. Tho totnl number of
dead in St. Louis, identified up to tho
present, is 1G2, and in East St Louis,
127. In St Louis there aro 22 bodies
btlll unidentified, nndin East St Louis
two. It is believed that tho deaths of
tho Injured and tho future recovery of
bodies will bring tho St Louis death
list well up to 203. In East St Louis
tho city officials declared that they
hove hope that tins death roll on that
sido of tho river will not exceed 150,
but tho ruins upon which tho rescuers
havonotyct begun work may bwell
tho total far beyond that figure.
Tho estimates upon the property loss
have grown wilder nnd furtner apart.
Guesses wero inn do yesterday all tho
way from 82,000 000 "to 850. 000,000 for
St Louis, and from SI, 500,000 to 820,
000,000 for East St. Louis. The most
popular estimate Is in the neighbor
hood of 825,000,000 for both cities, in
cluding railroad buildings damaged.
Although thousands of men have
been at work night and day clearing
away tho wreckage in the path of the
tornado, they have scarcely made a
perceptible impression toward restor
ing the chaotic confusion to anything
like order. Passageways havo been
made through somo of the principal
thoroughfares, It is true, but for the
most part tho streets are still choked
with the battered remains of homes
and factories, hospitals and churches.
The number of families left homeless
by tho devastation along tho path of
the storm will reach up into tho thou
sands. In many instances these un
fortunates havo lost all their worldly
possessions. Many will for days be
dependent on charity and their more
fortunate neighbors for shelter.
Two companies of the Illinois state
militia from Greenville and Belleville,
111., in all about 100 men, patrolled the
levee district of East St Louis all day.
Dead lines were established, and no
ono was allowed to pass without a per
mit. The effect of these stringent
measures was soon seen in the greatly
decreased number of people in the
devastated district Over 00 suspects
havo already been arrested and were
sent out of town or locked up.

SEVEN YEARS' RECORD.
Tornadoes Are ns Frequent In tho Hast as
In the West.
St. Louis, May 29. In a record of
tornadoes kept for seven years by the
weather bureau it appears that the
United States suffered from an average
of CO a year. In the course of seven
years the funnel shaped cloud was
seen in 30 different states. This is con
trary to tho impression which many
have that the west suffers from a tor
nado monopoly. In the soven years
New York state averaged two torna
does a year and so did New England.
Kansas and Illinois, at first glance,
seemed to be the champion tornado
state by this record, with Missouri a
close third Kansas and Illinois had an
average of nearly seven tornados a year
for tho seven years tho record was
kept, while Missouri had five. But
when differences in area was taken
into consideration and tho pcrccntago
of tornado clouds to each 10,000 square
miles of territory was worked out, it
did not apjpcar that Kansas, Illinois
ana .Missouri were entitled to so raucu
reputation as breeders of these pe
culiar storms. During the seven years
tho percentago of tornadoes to area
placed Massachusetts and Illinois side
by side at the top of the list. Indiana
in the frequency of tornadoes led Kan
sas. Georgia, Iowa, Missouri, New
Jersey and Ohio wero close behind
Kansas in their percentages.

The Blue and the Gray.
Both men and women aro apt to feel a little
blue, when the gray hairs begin to show. It's
a very natural feeling. In the normal condition
of things gray hairs belong to advanced ago.
They havo no business whitening tho head of
man or woman, who has not begun to go
down tho slope of life. As a matter cf fact,
tho hair turns gray regardless of ago, or of
life's seasons ; sometimes it is whitened by
sickness, but more often from lack of care.
When tho hair fades or turns gray there's no
need to resort to hair dyes. Tho normal color
of the hair is restored and retained by the use of
