BIG DIKE IS SWSPT OUT Thousands In Danger of Drowning Through Inability to Escape From Water Surrounded Homes $10, 000,000 in Property Is Destroyed. St Louis. The worst flood in the nation's history Is now sweeping the Mississippi river valley. One hundred thousand persons are the victims. With additional tragedies recorded from the zone affected, the death list reached 20. The government levee in the Reel' foot lake region, a few miles south ol Hickman, Ky., has given way. LonR gaps were torn In tha barrier that pro tected several counties of northwest Tennessee and the released waters quickly spread themselves over thou sands of acres of land to the depth of many feet The water is rising everywhere ex cept at upper points on tributaries. Thousands are actually In danger ol drowning through Inability to escape from homes surrounded by water. At two Missouri towns, residents are re ported clinging to tree tops and the roofs of their homes, waiting to be rescued. The property loss !s incalculable. The levees at Cairo proper still hold, although a report that the bank had let go early sent a thrill of horror throughout the nation. Fortunately, the alarm proved groundless. Flood warnings have been sent to all points along the lower river, and thousands of refugees are fleeing to the highlands. Various estimates ranging as high as $10,000,000 have been placed on the property damage. Memphis, Tenn. Gasoline launches were sent out from Charleston, Mo., to Bird's Mill and Wyatt to rescue residents of the two villages, who are reported clinging to house tops and In trees. In answer to an appeal from Ran dolph, Tenn., a squad of militiamen left Memphis with tents and supplies for refugees. William Lynn, wife and three chil dren were drowned between Bird's Point and Wyatt, Mo. Lynn was a farmer and was overtaken with his family by the rising water. Couriers were sent out along the levees to warn planters that breaks In the embankments were feared mo mentarily. Only a desperate fight can prevent the rising flood from breaking through the levee at Caruthersville, Mo. Should a breach occur, the loss of life and property would be great. Caruthersville is full of refugee from the lowlands of Tennessee, where there Is no levee protection Houses are being washed away and all available steamers are searching the lowlands for sufferers. Several hundred have been brought In. Cairo, 111. The backing of water from the Tenth street drainage pump here threw citizens Into a panic and the report spread that the levee which holds the Ohio river out of Cairo had broken. The report proved untrue. The rumor that the levee had broken spread rapidly and caused residents to go to the second story of their homes and the buildings they were In. Couriers went through the city reas suring the citizens tbat no break had occurred. The river here again reached the stage of 53.9 feet, and It Is expected to remain at this s.tage for several days. The breaking of the government levee at Hickman, Ky., will relieve the strain on the leve s at Cairo and other points north of Hickman. The scene at the drainage district, Immediately north of Cairo, Is appal ling. Houses which were partly sub merged by the breaking of the drain age district levees were torn from their foundations. Hickman, Ky. A picture of utter desolation is presented by this flooded town. A tented city shelters 3.000 refugees, while a waste of muddy wa ter stretches out around the city.

RODGERS IS KILLED NOTED AVIATOR PLUNGES 250 FEET TO DEATH WHEN AIRSHIP DROPS. SCRAMBLE FOR SOUVENIRS Transcontinental Airman Drops Into Ocean at Long Beach, Cal. Was the First to Cross the Country In an Aeroplane. Los Angeles, Cal. The only man who ever flew across the American continent, Calbraith Perry Rodgers, was killed here when his biplane fell 250 feet Into the breakers at Long Beach. Rodgers fell from his seat In the machine and his body shot downward ahead of the biplane, striking In the shallow surf. His neck was broken, and he died instantly. With several thousand people watching him, he ascended for an ex hibition flight, taking off at the edge of the beach. Rising about 150 feel, the machine suddenly tilted at a per ilous angle, and the spectators rea lized that something was wrong. Rodgers managed to right the aero plane and again began to climb In a long spiral. When he was about 4M feet in the air the machine suddenly dipped sharply and pluuged like a plummet earthward. An instant after Rodgers struck the shallow water the machine crashed into the surf and was reduced to a mass of splintered wreckage and tan gled wire, so that the exact cause of the accident may never be known, al though it is believed that one of the wire guys broke as he was rising in the air. Thus ended the career of one of the most brilliant, daring and resourceful airmen of the age..

Would Interchange Packages With Rural Delivery Service Highest Rate Is 12 Cents. Washington. A bill enlarging the Interstate commerce law so as to place express companies under the commission was reported to the house by the committee on Interstate commerce. The bill would govern the trans portation of packages not exceeding eleven pounds in weight and with a valuation of $S0 or less. No allow ance would be made for the expense of transfer from one express com pany to another. The rates would be fixed as follows: Between any two points In the United States more than 2,000 miles apart, 12 cents a pound; not more than 2,000 miles apart, 10 cents; not more than 1,200 miles apart, 7 cents; not more than 800 miles apart, S cents; not more than 600 miles apart, 4 cents, and between points not more than 250 miles apart, 2 cents a pound.

An innovation In the bill Is the pro vision for co-operation between the express companies and the rural free delivery routes. Express matter des tined for a farmer living on a rural mail route would be delivered by the express agent at the nearest point to Its destination, where, provided the shipper had attached the necessary postage, it would be turned over to the mail carrier, through the regular channels, for delivery. Rural carriers likewise would be authorized to ac cept matter on which postage had been paid for delivery to the express company. ' PLAN REJECTED BY U. S.
