Of these ):'.! had been Identified, and 21 remain unrecognized. In Er.st St. Louis at. the same hoar 3-17 bodies had b'.-en recovered, Of Hn-sc JSil have, been idciltitied by relatives or friends and S are without identification. In St. Louis 21' persons arc reported fatally Injured, and their deaths are momentarily expected. In East St. Louis IS persons arc suffering- from wounds which ivlll prove mortal In a few hours. The work of recovering tho dead is being -T.nidly carried on through a systematic corps of workers. A conservative estimate I of the loss of life in the city of St. I.ouls places the number in the neighborhood ot: rCO. In liast St. Louis it. Is feared that when the-rulns are thoroughly explored, the number of dead bodies recovered will reach a total of nearly 225. A great many persons estimate that over 25 persons lost their .lives lii the. Mississippi river, and the chances arc that their bodies will never he recovered. The number of persons who lost their lives by being. .blown into the rive- from fiat boats and were carried dowr. by overturned steamboats la problematical, ar.d only when a tabulated list of the missing can bo made will tho exact number be known. Huiuln:cl!i Sleep In tho Open Air. Hundreds of homeless people slept in the open a'.rTbursday night. The public tiuil..t- Ings were thrown open for the accommodation o!' the destitute and unfortunate, and these places were crowded to their capacity. Food for the hungry was furnished liberally by citizens and keepers of restaurants in the "neighborhood of these temporary shelters . All r.le'nt and throughout Friday mornln,-- hundreds, and in some cases thousands of people surrounded the temporary morgues, and within were heart- j-endlii scones 1 enacted as relatives came to take away tile, remains of their loved ones, and parties seeking to identify some of the unknown dead made flie rounds of the silent forms.. Hundreds of furniture wagons, carts and In many cases buggies and private vehicles arc being- brought into reQutsltlon to move away whatever of the personal property can he digged out of tho ruin;; or, at the risk of the lives of the salvage corps, can'be gotten from the lower' rooms of residences, the walls of which are tottering ;>nd threatening every moment to bury those beneath. These scenes will be rccnactcd during the hours of daylight for days ff> come. Fortunately the weather is fine artel there is no indication of a rainy spell. \Yore tha conditions otherwise the misery and suffering would be Intensified a hundred fold, and the property loss Increased by large figures.
