be unprecedented in that region for
destructiveness. It, is quite possible
that the reports of loss of life are
exaggerated, but the estimates
range from 700 to 1,500, and the re
port from El- Paso is that 1,000
bodies have been recovered. The
adobe houses of Silao and Leon
were easily undermined and swept
into ruins, and .the water rose so
rapidly that many of the occupants
were overwhelmed without realizing
their danger. The Mexican Central
Railroad has suffered much, and 100
miles of it is said to be impassable.
Thousands of people have been
rendered homeless and much prop
