The experiences Of Mr- Harry Steele, a young man who was employed in a cotton house In Galveston., were- dreadful, 'He lived five blocks back from the beach and was at home with his wife when the gale tore the roof from over their heads. Ile hurriedly left his home and sought refuge in another houre, anal he had Scarcely ensconced himself with his wife behind the sheltering walls when the storm tore that house to Dierem. A third time he Sought refuge in at house and this shook and rattled so that becoming alarmed he determined to leave it also. Alearttime the water had risen beyond .hin depth, but being a strong swimmer he contrived to catch hold of a door floating by, and with this and other debris he ine-arovieed a raft. upon - which he placed has wife. , They drifte4 about at the mercy of, the gale, breaking over the raft, but he held on and both were saved.

Many instances of devotion of hueband to wife, of wife to husband. of eked to parent and parent to child tan be mentioned. One poor woman with her thild and her father was cast out Into the raeing waters. They were separated. both .were in the drift and both believed they went out in the gulf and returned. The mother was finally cast upon the drift. and there she was pounded by the waves and debris until she maned Into a house against which the drift bad lodged. and during all that frightful ride he held to he 8-months-, old babe, end when ethe waas on the drift pile Phe lay upon her infant and covered it with her body. that it might eseape the blows of 'this planks. and she came out of the ordeal. cut and,malmed, but the Infant had not a scratch.

INSURANCE COMPANIES IIIT HARD Lilo Policies May lile Paid Without Litigation Srec:Ai DISPATCH TO Tan OLOSII-DICUOCRAT. DALLAS, TEX., September 14.The In-aureate, Questions are beginning to receive serious attention. Life insurance compa- flies are going to ha hit very hard. The question that particularly engages the at tention of their representatives is whether pettlements shall be made without 'Riga, Hon. Many of the agents are advising their companies to settle claims if positive evidence is produced that the policy-holder was in Galveston at so recent a time as the night of September 7 or the day of SeptemS. Under the law, many persons interested In collecting claims contend that this flood diraster produces-a situation where the body doe3 net' have to be produced to prove death. - Messrs. Tresevant & Cochran. keneral Souttweetern agents for eight big insurance companies. and other local insurance rtgente. were, interviewed to-day about the Storm Warms and the amount of tom insurance orried by Galveston property holders On their belongings. They Stated that all Dallas itinerants Met C011etlf In the opinion that the ineurance policies against storm losers carried by Galvestonians will not aggregate $10,t)00. They eay there was abeoletely no demand for such insurance at Galvestert. Mr. S. P. Cochran said: "We did not car' ry a dollar or storm insurance at Galveston. I feel quite sure that the storm insurance was sery small. We never had a request for storm insurance policies. If there had been any demand at Galveston or insurance of this kind we would have heard of it We held $50.000 storm insurance on two big oil mills at Houston. and our loss will probably be S40.000 to $50,o00 on tbese two structures. We held $25.000 storm insurance at Port Arthur and about MOO at Alvin. The ineurance situation at Galveston Is very quiet. There was no lose by Cre and I think the Insurance against storms was DESTRUCTION NEAR ALVIN. Fifteen Mlle at Territory Swept Clear la Buildings. Seems, DISPATC11 To TB OLOSN-DYWOCILAT. HOUSTON. TEX.. September 14.In a statement issued by Mayor King. of Al-Yin. be says that every business house. as well as practically all the residences in a territory eovering fifteen miles have been ruined, and all stocks of goods, and that relief must be had at once. Statements of similar character are coming from many towns which have suffered severely, and the task of rellevIng all the -distressed grows greater every moment. There is uttering outside Galveston that is more Intense than any there. Dr. J. Mark O'Farrell, one of the leading citizens of Richmond, Fort Bend County. hao written your correspondent as follows: "The true statement of the condition ef Illichmond and Ford Bend County. has not been published. A statement appears that Fort Bend County's loss is about Slik).othe E. H. Cunningham & Co.. at Sugariand, , alone lost more than that sum. and the ( town of Richmond was a sufferer to the extent of $150,000, conservatively estimated, while the county's loss is $1,5110,ts5e and probably more. For miles on the prairie - not a house is left. Missouri City and Stafford are almost totally destroyed. In fact. the county is wrecked and almost ruined. Nineteen lives were lost. Conditions are simply terrible. We are asking no charity. We are to-day raising what we can to send to Galveston. , FREAKS OF THE STORM. Ilia band Snatched from a Window Be. tore ill. Wife. Eye.

Mrs. Quayle came from New York to Galveston, arriving there Thursday before the storm accompanied by her husband. Edward Quayle. ,,a tabulator on the Liverpool Cotton Exchange. Mrs. Quayle and her husband took apartments In the Lucas Terrace. a fashionable place in the eastern end of the island. During the storm Saturday evening, while Mr. Quayle was peering out of a window. there came an unusually violent gust of wind and the window was literally sucked out as if by a, mighty air pump. and he was taken with it. Mrs. Quayle was thrown in the opposite direction against the door of the room. When she came to her senses she began to call for her husband. Mr. Hale. who occupied the adjoining room. came to her assistance and-cared for her until dawn Sunday morning. Then they went out together and searched throughout all the adjacent portion of the city for her missing husband. But riö trace of him as found. The search was kept up until Monday night without success. - Then Mr. Hale brought Mrs. Quayle via Houston to New Orleans. and they took the throuih Louisville and Nashville train for New lork. Mrs. Quayle will return to England. She was completely prostrated and. although having not yet reached middle age. had the appearance of a frail, ,decrepit old woman so terrible had been the ordeal.'
