Known Victims.

sels have been heard from. Dr. Story
says tho swamps are filled with dead
bodies which it Is almost impossible to
reach. There can bo no doubt, said the
doctor, that this Is conducive to nn epi
demic of fever, or oven of cholera. It a
case ot oholera should develop it would
spread through thu country like a prairie
flro. Dr, Story believes that tho damage
to the oraugo crop will approach half a
million. Thu other crops have suffered in
proportion, and the destruction to proper
ty Is almost beyond estimation.

says it is Impossible to picture the situa
tion in his parish, whore thu death list is
long. Men, women and children are starv
ing, nnd hundreds of corpses still lie on
the river bauks. Siuco the storm occurred
the doctor has been doing nothing but
