search for storm victims last night
3tf people we r known to bo dead on
both skies of tno river and although
the complete death list will never be
known It is believed that It will up-
proximate 400 in the two cities.
The number of the injured is oven
larger and many of the maimed can-
not survive. The property loss will
roach well Into the millions but in-
surance people liremen nud polite
alike refuse to hazard even a guess at
accurate figures. The uiu'urtnlnty re-
garding loss of life and property Is
due mainly to the wide extent of tho
havoc wrought by the storm.
The miles of wrecked buildings as
yet unexplored and the numerous
UDllapicd factories toward the investi-
gation of which little progress has
been made may hide til most any num-
ber of bodies as the police have been
unable to secure anything1 like tin
accurate list of the missing.
In the factory districts many of tho
employes on duly nt tint tune the
storm broke were without relatives in
the city ami their disappearance
would scarcely bu noticed even
though they be buried In tho ruins it
is believed by the police too that
owing to tlio Muldcnnesi with which
tho crash came many tramps and
homeless ones sought shelter among'
tho buildings whien were leveled and
that nothing will be known of their
death until weeks hence their bodies

tory shape again.
The most furious work of the storm
was along llutger street Lafayette
and Chouteau avenues and tho con-
tiguous thoroughfares cast of Joffcr-

the roofs underneath buried by brick
and mortar. Und or the brick and

There Is not a tree nor a building

rounded by wreckage that it is barely
possible to reach It.
Uy far tho most remarkable froak of
tho" storm was ut this many wingod
house. About 300 pationts were scat-
tered through tlio wards when the
tornado struck but although the en-
tire upper story was cut off clean and
one wing razed to the ground but ono

Colonel Wetmore. manager of the
Liggett & Myers tobacco plant which
was wrecked estimates the entire
property damage at 860o00o0 which
will be he Bays almost a total loss
owing to tho lack of cyclone Insur-
ance. Other estimates range from
$15000000 to 830000000 but the
majority of thain arc close to that
made by Colonel Wetinore.

tracted an army of ptckpoohula nud

St. Louis Mo. Mny 50. In a record
of tornadoes kept far sovon years by
the woathor bureau it appears that
the United Statos suffered from an
average of sixty n year. In the coiiso
of seven years tho funnel shaped cloud
was seen in thirty different statos.
Tills is contrary to tho impression
which many have that tho West suf-
fers from a tornado monopoly. Iq
the seven years New York stato
avernged two tornadoes a your and
so did New Kngjand. Kansas and
Illinois at fjrst glance seomed to bo
tho champion tornado states by this
record with Missouri a oloso third.
Kansas and Illinois had an average of
nearly seven tornados a yoar for the
seven years tho reoord was kept
while Missouri had five. Hut when
differenco in area was taken Into con-
sideration and the percentage of tor-
nado clouds to each l.uoo square miles
of territory was worked out It did not
appear that Kansas Illinois and Mis-
souri wero entitled to so much reputa-
tion as breeders of these peculiar
storms. During th seven years tho
