jé I -- , wsmm 1 13 «w: unes ESTABLISHED FEBRUARY 15, 1906. CROCKETT, TEXAS, THURSDAY, AUGUST 8, 1918. FOURTEENTH YEAR LAKE CHARLES CENTER QF TROPICAL STORM {Wednesday's Galveston News) New Orleans, La., Aug. 6.—. 'The tropical storm passed inland tonight at Lake Charles and nothing as yet has been received from Cameron Parish. There is probably great loss of life in that section of the state, as Cameron Parish, Louisiana, rests on the gulf. The storm struck its greatest force there. In 1898 a similar disturbance killed 301 people on Chandilant Island and wiped out those bathing resorts on the western coast of Louis- iana. Lake Charles felt the full force of the blow as it swept off the Cameron marshes into this Louisiana city, the wind reach- ing its greatest velocity of 134 miles an hour. Beaumont, Texas, Aug. 6.— According to stories told by trainmen and passengers on Southern Pacific train No. 5 which reached here from New Orleans nearly four hours late-, arriving at 9 o'clock t...

; - * ,v v LIST OF CASUALTIES ht I Washington, Aug. 4.—Army and marine corps casualties re- ported from overseas during the week ending Sunday increased 1430 compared with 1050 the week before. Total casualties reported are 15,196, including Sunday's army list of 283, the largest number yet reported in a single day, and marine corps list of two. While as yet no figures on casualties in the great allied of- fensive in which American troops are playing so conspicu- ous part have been received, the increase in the daily army lists undoubtedly is due in part to this fighting. The increase for the week was 1384. The marine corps list increased only 46 for the seven days. In the 15,196 casualties, total- deaths, including 291 men lost at sea, men killéd in action, died of wounds, disease, accidents and other causes numbered 6144 —army men 5410, marines 734. The wounded aggregate 8264— army men 7044, marines 1220. The missing, including prisoners, total 788—army men 710, ma- rines 78. Of t...
