The house was picked up by the current and carried againsi the Herman street bridge. Volbrecht said he leaped to the bridge and didn't know what became of his family. One woman, with a ten'day-old baby, climbed over the roots of thre? houses tc reach the rescuers to-day. The water in all inundated districts has fallen from three to rive feet to? day, and the current of the river and creek have slackened so that it is pos? sible, except in the centre, for small boats to reach sufferers. Com? any F. ol the Ohio National Guard, from Eaton, Ohio, is patrolling the streets of West Dayton. The local company is on duty in Dayton View, and Adjutant General Wood to'day wired Governor Cox asking that the militia of Ohio or any nearby state be rushed here. Local authorities believe that militia from Indiana could reach here within the shortest time. In addition to the militia, the local police force not caught in the central flood district and volunteer guardsmen are on duty. In the West Dayton flood district no persons are allowed to enter except on a militia pass. At the rescue stations the scenes enacted to-day were hearuending and ihe most pitiful scenes occurred at the temporary morgue. At the West Dayton Morgue frantic crowds all day and to-night watched every body brought in, hoping against hope it was not that of some loved one. Women became hysterical at times when searching for missing members of their families, whom they had failed to lind at the relief stations. In addition to refuge homes, the authorities in each section are maintain? ing an identification bureau, where all persons rescued or cared for are regis? tered. There friends are directed in their search. The flood situation, which threatened to become serious, was relieved temporarily by the arrival of a special train from Richmond, Ind.. bringing seven carloads of provisions. The thing that makes the situation more difficult for concerted rescue work is the peculiar geographical situation of the town It is divided into six sections. Central Dayton comprising the downtown business district, West Dayton the territory extending several miles west of the Big Miami, River dale the northeast, across the river from the central district; Dayton View the extreme northeast. Central Dayton the manufacturing district, in which the Nanonai Cash Register Company's plant is located and separated from the central district by lowlands, which are deep in flood waters, and North Dayton, northwest of the business district, across the river from the business section The river forms a horseshoe around the business district, making it im? possible to reach that part until the torrents that are pouring down the valley recede. Dayton View, West Dayton and Riverdale are the only sections between which communication is possible Hourly apprehension for the appalling sights that will be uncovered when the waters return to normal are growing. It is nearly certain that bodies of luckless caught in the first rush of the flood will be found. Pestilence is feared and already sanitary and health officials are mapping out their work. Six hundred persons trapped in the Union Station here, reported to have been drowned, were rescued to-night.
