great trees uprooted, deep gullies torn
In the fields by the rushing torrents.

erty loss and the number of dead
may be over-estimated, hundreds have
been lost who never will be found.
They ae buried In deep mud and
wreckage or washed by the rapid
stream far south.
"I was in a rooming house in the in
undated district,." be said. "We got
sufficient warning, but failed to heed
it. A wall of water several feet high
struck the building, carrying it off its
foundation. The water soon reached
the second story. Several roomers
were lost. I was rescued from the
roof in a row boat. I saw several
houses wrecked and I am sure 50 lives
were lost In my own observation. I
am glad to escape with my life. I
lost about everything else."
Ivor Daley and Wilbur F. Cannon,
of Colorado Springs, comfortably
located in a building above the flooded
district, spent all Friday night In
watching flood and fire do deadly
work in Pueblo. Their statement Is
that the Arkansas river leaped its
banks at 7 o'clock In the evening.
Autoists caught in their cars in the
streets abandoned them and the cars
knocked against each other, bumped
into plate glass windows, turning over
and over until at length broken to
pieces. Late Friday night and early
Saturday fires were more frequent,
they said, caused by unslacked lime
and oil and augmented by drifting
houses, lumber and other combust
ibles. At 2 o'clock Saturday morning
it was possible to read a newspaper
by light of these fires.
Daley said the night in Pueblo was
a night of terror.
"We saw bodies of the drowned
taken temporarily to the court house,
Congress hotel and' other buildings,
nine out of 10 covered with mud and
debris beyond recognition.
"One rescuer told us 18 bodies were
picked up in 20 minutes. It Is im
possible to tell the number of the
dead. It may be 500 and It may be
3,000.
"A man 75 years old roosted in a
tree all night in the northern part of
the town. He said he had seen 100
people perish from his vantage of ob
servation. "Another man saw 50 or more Mex
icans dashed away in their adobe
houses near the river."
