The Union Pacific and Burlington have
several gangs of men working on their

a big tract of low country to the bluffs
and flowed easterly down the channel of
the Raw Hide -and the low lands to the

will probably reach 115.000, and It will be
some time before the streets can be mado
passable south of the tracks. For two
days over 100 women and children stayed
at the city hall and were served meals by
the women of the different churches and
the Women's Relief corps- Markey's hall
