MISSISSIPPI
FLOODS RAGING
THOUSANDS OF ACRES OF FER*
TILE FIELDS UNDER WATER.
PROPERTY LOSS $10,000,000.
THOUSANDS HOMELESS
RAILROADS ARE PARALYZED AND
HUNDREDS OF LIVES MEN
ACED BY OVERFLOW.
Western Newspaper L'nlon News Service.
Memphis, Tenn. —ln the wide
stretches of the Mississippi’s flooded
acres there are three striking pic
tures. The northernmost is the 500
square miles of the Reelfoot lake
country of Tennessee, where 2,000 or
more persons have been driven from
their homes by the smashing of a
Mississippi levee in southwestern
Kentucky. In this district thousands
of acres of fertile fields are underwa
ter. Soores of persons who have re
fused to desert their homes now are
imprisoned in upper floors and on
roofs of flood-menaced houses.
A few miles south, in Arkansas,
three counties are under water. From
this rich "bottom” country hundreds
of farmers and villagers have been
driven. Flood waters swept over the
fields and villages with the breaking
of the levee on the Arkansas side,
north of Memphis.
Great numbers of persons marooned
on roofs of houses and in trees have
been taken out of the flooded districts
in boats. Probably many more are in
peril. There are not boats enough to
perform the rescue work. Three coun
ties flooded arc Crittenden, Poinsett
and Cross.
The scene south of those points
impresses one with the power of the
river. Homes that once marked the
center of rich bottom farms now float
in a torrent that cannot be stayed.
Bits of wreckuge carried along in the
tide reflect the extent of the damage
in the valley above.
Thirty thousand persons homeless;
2,000 square miles of country inun
dated, thirty persons drowned and a
financial loss of $10,000,000 constitute
the result of a two weeks’ flood in tne
Mississippi valley.
Thfese figures were arrived at by
government engineers and officials of
state levee boards engaged in battling
the ravaging sweep of the Mississippi
river from points in Illinois to
threatened places in Mississippi and
Arkansas.
Water is pouring into Arkansas
through three new breaks in the levee
south of Memphis. Several hundred
square miles are subject to flooding.
Railroad traffic is practically para
lyzed. Hundreds of persons still are
menaced by the tide of the river at
points in lower Missouri, northwest
ern Tennessee and Arkansas. They
are marooned on housetops, in trees
and on anchored rafts directly in the
sweep of the river.
State and levee board officials in
the districts south of Memphis are la
boring to top the strained levees. Mis
sissippi officials think their embank
ments will hold.
Homestead Bill Includes all Claims.
Washington.—That the Borah three
year homestead bill, if enacted into
law as it passed the House, would be
interpreted by the General Land Office
as applicable to all pending homestead
entries, including those under the 320-
acre act, was made clear at a meeting
of the conferees on the Borah meas
ure.
In answer to the direct question of
Representative Mondell, the secretary
of the interior told the committee that
unquestionably if the Borah bill, as it
passed the House was enacted into
law, he would consider its terms suf
ficiently definite to apply to all pend
ing homesteads, including the enlarged
homestead.
During the general discussion it de
veloped that considerable pressure
would be exerted to have the commit
tee agree to the amendments rejected
by the House, reserving mineral and
water-power sites and certain timbered
areas. While the House conferees arc
opposed to these amendments, from
what developed at the hearing it
seems reasonably certain that the Sen
ate conferees may insist on amending
the bill to at least partially meet the
suggestions of the secretary. The
committee will hold another session in
a week or ten days.
Globe, Ariz.—Henry Perman has
been rescued from the Manitou mine,
twenty miles from Globe, after having
been entombed for ninety-seven hours
by a cave-in.
San Francisco. —Scrgt. John Walsh,
U. S. A., retired, sixty-one years old,
walked into the Presidio with a record
of 176 days for walking from San
Francisco to New York and return.
The previous record hold by Edward
Payson Weston was eighteen days
longer.
lyandon.—Relations of Russia and
Turkey, which a few weeks ago
caused circulation of alarming reports,
may at any moment reach an acute
stage.
Arizona Wants Recall.
Phoenix, Ariz. —The Republicans of
Arizona will exercise the initiative to
present to the people at the next gen.
/ eral election the recall amendment
which was defeated in the Legislature
recently, according to Senator Lorenzo
Hubbell, chairman of the Republican
state committee.

er than ever before. The high price |
paid on this year's contract by the
American Beet Sugar Company for
beets has induced many who hereto
fore would not sign contracts to grow
beets. That the Las Animas factory
will be in operation this fall is now an
assured fact, as the company has sev
eral hundred more signed up by the
| farmers than is required. The Ameri
i can Beet Sugar Company has near sl,-
