Althouuh thousands of men have been at work nia't- and day clearing away the wreckage in the path of the tornado, they have scarcely made a perceptible impression towards restoring the chaotic confusion to anything like order. -Passageways have been made through some of tlie rinci)al thorouh fares. it is true, but for the most part the streets are still choked, with I ho battered remains of home; and factories, hospitals and churche--. The path of the storm is fully a mile and a half wide. It starts away out in the suburbs of the city, where beautiful homes of people of wealth are lo cated. Taking a zitrza; course it extends down through where the densely popu lated tenement houses are located, fully six miles, and crosses the river. The number of families left homeless by the devastation nhmu: the path of ihe-iorm will in-b- each tin into the thom-ands. In many tliese imbaaunates h.aveio-r ail their worldly pos-eesions.

There exists a!) ut as much uncertainty as to the actual mimli'T of people killed and the amount of r perty damaged as on the first morniirzof thi' disaster. Scores of dead have been identified, but no one is willing to venture a .ruess as to how many bodies mav be in the ruins of the hundreds of buildin-s as ye: unexplored. Corrected reports from various sources alom: the river front materially reduce the estimate of the loss by drowning. How manv roustabouts went down will proba bly never be known, as they are generally of a class in whose welfare there is little interest, most of them beinpr nero no mads who move from one port to another. The destitution, misery and want here has touched the hearts of the people in :dl parts of the country, --ml as a result, ever since the storm of Wednesday offers of help and contributions have been pouring in.
