a fair cuUiilii'.ion of tlie loss of life anil ex

Ill the I'oint-a-la-Uaehf district tlie death
list has heeu swollen to eighty, und the
Hearcliini; parties are still out, with the
Jirosiiret of ii creasing the number to an
even humk't'd at le:i.-t. The destruction
of property and crops in the same vicinity
will no into the thousands. Around
Shell beach and Malox island the list of
dead is in the neighborhood of tliiity. Dn
the Mississippi sound and vicinity proba
bly a score of people have been lost, with
reports coming in that th Chandeleitr
islands were swept und that rent ihimajje
thereby resulted, with attendant loss of
life. The loss to property will amount to
several thou-and dollars.
Two lluiulretl in Itayuu Cook.
It is pretty well determined now that the
loss of life in tlie l!ayou Cook country will
approximate SIX). Scores of fishing smacks
and limbers have oeen destroyed und the
country swept clenu of its houses. Kelia
ble news from drum! l.-le has reached here
and -hows that the loss of life there will
not exceed tweuty-tive, and that stianp-ly
enough all of these were colored people.
The islands had a miraculous escape,' but
that was due to the fact that the land upon
it is higher than that of the Cheniere, and
because it was less txpoM'd. and on account
of the ficklene-s of the wind and waves.
Many houses were blown down, bricks
were scat iered in evesy direct on, massive
jaks were bent, and even liuge liars of iron
were picked up and seattcr-.-d by tlie wind.

It is fair to estimate, therefore, that bj

He is being lionized by his countrymen,

Jeserves all of the praise and credit that
accorded him. Captain Terrebonne,
luring the height of the cyclone, risked
his life half a dozen times in saving the
lives of men, women and children who
were unable to help themselves. While
ihe storm was at its fury the
tiouse that Captaiu Terrebonne
occupied began rocking to and fro.
There was two feet of water on the
ground, but nevertheless the captnin

while his 17-year-old son seized another of
the children and they left the house.
Captain Terrebonne weighs 50 pounds
and is powerfully built, but it took all
bis strength to keep from blowing nway.
Some distance from his house was a two

house he found several people crouching
in fear on the lower floor. The captain
then left in search of those who were in

At almoU every step he found some un

to the house where his family was. lie
continued doing this for over an hour and
luring that time managed to save sijetv
four people who were on the point of giv

ihe sixty-four people had been safely landed
in the lower portion of the house the build
ing began to sway to and fro. Those in
the house became imtiic-s'ricken and
would have dashed out iuto the storm had
not the captain placed his burly form in
the doorway and prevented them. Here
quested everybody to go up-stairs. know

had thought Oct. 5 instead of Oct. 2 was
the date set for the preliminary examina

that there was no mistake about the dato
