Seepages and! ‘•boils” can be handled without dif ficulty, they are confident. (By the Associated Press) Memphis, March 27—Heavy and continued rains in the central Miss issippi, Ohio and Missouri river val leys Sunday and today will cause the Mississippi to rise higher than was previously forecast, it was announced by the weather bureau today. Definite figures on the extent of the additional rise and the time the crest can be expected, have not been cal culated by the bureau. River men estimate that the stage at Memphis will reach 43 feet by Thursday, Levees at all points below Cairo are reported today as holding well. Forecasts of the weather bureau are more or less uncertain, and the officials of the bureau do not feel safe in predicting the height or time of the crest in this district. Yester day's forecasts give warning of more rain in the Ohio Valley today. An other rise in the Ohio river is pre dicted, and this, of course, will in crease the flood in the Mississippi. The river continues to rise and at •> o’clock yesterday afternoon it stood at 41.1. At 8 o’clock yesterday morn , ing the official gauge showed a stage of 40.8. These readings show a rise of .3 of a foot in nine hours, or almost as great a rise as was re corded for the 24-hour period begin ning Saturday morning. The greatest anxiety over the levee situation yesterday was felt by in habitants of the territory around Mound City. Capt. W. F. Wright master of the steamer “Hustler,” re turning from the upper bends late yesterday, reported a bad leak in the levee a mile north of Mound City. The Hustler delivered 2,000 sand bags at that place during the day, and left this morning wit han additional ship ment of 15,000 bags. Captain Wright said he had many visitors at the Mound City landing, everybody anxious to learn whether I the boat brought banrs with which | they might reinforce the levee at the danger point. Seeing that the bags had arrived, the captain said the crowd departed, satisfied to remain a while longer behind the bulwark which protects them from the flood. Packet masters arriving in the city from down-river landings brought news of uneasiness at several places where the water is seeping the levees. Patrol forces have been increased on the section of old levee north of Helena, where lies the greatest danger of a break. At Peter’s Landing, 45 miles south of Memphis, it is said people living behind the levee are becoming ap prehensive and fear a rise of more I than 43 feet. There is little danger i of the water going over the top of the | levee, but the embankments are be coming saturated and spring-wells are shooting up in several places be hind the levee. Levee engineers, how ever, report that they have the situa tion in hand, and unless the river con tinues to rise for several days, or a week, it is believed a flood of the low lands will be averted. All steamers plying the river south of Paducah are carrying emergency supplies of sand baks. These are be-1 ing unloaded at points designated by I levee engineers. START REBUILDING BUSINESS HOUSES.
