Johntbown, I’a., June 0, 11 a. m.
—The work of recovering the dead
goes on with undiminished vigor, and
as the workman become accustomed
to their ghastly finds and the horrors
of the scene 'become commonplace,
they apply thenselves more diligently
to their duty and 'abor with a system
thnt produces rapid results.
Dr. G. G. Gross, who is now in coufte
charge ot the Johnstown bureau of the
state board ofhealth and sanitary in
spectors, assured your correspondent
this afternoon that there is no inline
diate danges of an epidemic in Pitts
burg. “The danger,” said he, “is
that the people will be scared into be-
iug sick. But work looms up before
us like a mountain. We need thou
sands of men to work on the debris
and clear it ot carcasses.”
Notices were posted oil all the
morgues to-day, stating that after to son
Floods of the Past.
At i.ynde Brook, near Worcester,on
March 301b. 1876, thirty feet of the
reservoir wall, which had been leaking,
gave way. and over 600 000,000 gal
lons of water were emptied imp the
valley. Only one life was lost, but
property was damaged to the extent
of nearly $1,000,000.
On March 27, 1877,theStaffordville
reservoir, on the east bank ot the W il*
limanttc river, gave way, and a torrent
of water rushed down the valley at the
rate of five miles an hour, destroying
mill dams and railroad bridges in its
The people were warned by
a man on horse back, who kept ahead
of the flood, and all except two of the
residents of the valley escaped. The
loss of property on this occasion ex
ceeded a million dollars.
By the bursting of the Huron mill
dam, near Houghton, Mich., 0:1 Jan

Bccoguitiou is a difficult matter.
There is a strong movement on
foot in favor of applying the torch to
the wrecked buildings itt Johnstown,
and although the sitggcstioe meets
with strong opposition at this time,
there is little doubt tlint. the ultimate
solution of the existing difficulties will
be by this method. An army of men
have been for two days employed in
clearing up the wreck in the city, and
although hundreds of bodies have
been discovered, not one-fifth of the
ground has yet been gone over. In
many places rubbish is piled thirty
feet high, and not infrequently these
great drifts cover an area of nearly
an acre. Those whose relatives or
friends still rest beneath the wreck
remonstrated strongly against ere
mation. They insisted that all the
talk of a threatened epidemic was
only sensational gossip, and that the
search for bodies should only be aban
doned as a last extremity. The
physicians in attendance warned the
committee that further exposure of
the putrid bodies in the valley could
have but one result—typhus, or some
other epidemic equally fatal to its
victims. It was a question whether
the living should be sacrificed to the
dead, and whother the sway of seuti
ment or mandate of science should
be the ruling impulse. Although the
proposition to burn the wreck was
defeated, it was evident that the
movement was gaining many adher
ents, and the result, doubtless, will
be that in a few days torches will be
applied, not only to the field of waste
in Johnstown, but also to the debris
that chokes the stream above the
Niuevali saw some woful sights to-
dav. During the period of day light
746 bodies were consigned to earth
from the various morgues about town.
This array ot dead was placed in
trenches. Less than 100 had been
recognized by friends. None of them
were cluimed for private burial,
howevor, as in a majority of instances
the survivors were too poor to stand
the expense. The bodies were gntli
ered from up and down the river be
low Johnstown, and the commission
ers of Westmoreland county furnished
part ol the ground where they sleep.
Dr. Benjamin Lee, the Pennsylva
nia state board of health s representa
tive, was asked yesterday, what, in
in bis opinion, were the prospects of
an epidemic in Conemaugh (valley.
He sail. “God only knows. No
man living can tell what will come
out of the piles of drift and wreckage.
To day we put a portion of our corps
of sanitary inspectors into the thick
of the debris and in a little while the
bodies of fifty dead animals, mostly
horseB, had been removed and lmuled
away for burial. If this per centage
ig kept up there is a fearf ul amount of
decomposed animal matter to be re
moved or counteracted. But we will
fight this thing to the.end.”
A carload of supplies was unloaded
on the track in Johnstown to-day by
the relief committee. There was a
rush for the goods. The strong over
powered the weak aud g it the best.
A fight occur.cd. A car load of
goods from Cleveland came to-haud
to-day. It consisted of water buck
ets containing bread, butter,coffee,
etc. To each bucket was tied a big

“WHAT MEDICINES ARE MOST
asked tho reporter of an old druggist.
"Dr. Pierce’s preparations," ho replied.
"They are sold under a positive guar*
an tee that- they will, in every caso, givo
satisfaction, or the money is promptly re
funded. His ‘Favorite Proscription, for all
those chronic weaknesses, nervous and other
derangements peculiar to women, is used with
unfailing success. It cures weak back, bear
ing-down sensations, irregularities and weak
nesses common to the sex. and being the
most perfect of tonic medicines builds up
and strengthens the entire system. The de
mand for it is constant, and I nm conversant
with scores of cases cured by it.”
Returning after a few moments' absence,
the venerable wicldcr of the pestle remarked,
"tho number of snrsaparillos nnd other, so-
o&llcd, ‘blood medicines’ is legion; but Dr.
Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery outsells
them all nnd it Is the only blood-purlflcr out
of the many which I am obliged to keep upon
my shelves, that is guaranteed to benefit or
cure in all enses for which it is recommended,
or money paid for it is refunded."
" In the fine of Pills," remarked tho old gen
tlemen, ‘‘the little Sugar-coated * Pellets’
put up by Dr. Pierce lead all others, both in
amount of solos and the genornl satisfaction
they give my customers."
