GREAT FLOOD OF WATER'

Effect on cotton.
Memphis Tenn. April 6.
The flood condition in the
Mississippi delta is a great
spread of water over an area
fkt hitherto was nevw over
flowed. The upper crevasse in
Tunica county is 2009 feet wide
and so great is the outponr that
water from below the break is
being drawn up to and hnrled
out over tfie fertile valley
through the crevasse. All of
the country east to the main
line of the Yasfoo and Missis
alppi Valley road' is flooded and
in many places the water has
gone over the tracks Ailing the
Yazoo river. The fall in the
main channel at Helena Green
viller Vicksburg and Arkansas
City in due to the filling up of
the delta and the lower White
river country. The supreme
question is the duration of the
flood. I! the lower levee along
Louisiana and southeastern
Arkansas should hold which it
is believed they will not do the
emptying of the delta and St.
Francis basin will be sTow. If
they break and the fiver contin
nues to fall at Cairo the up
per St. Francis delta will be
clear of water by May 5. If
this should prove true there
would be no difficult in growing
cotton. But breaks in Lonis
iana aud southeast Arkansas
will hold water in that territory
until the middle of May far af
ter the usual time for planting
cotton in that territory. The
river at Memphis is stationary
