WuxiAMfiroiiT, Pn., May U2. As
night approached Monday and darkness
Bottled down, tlio torrors of the flood In
creased. Tlio yellow torrent rushing
down from tho hill sides, fed by a thon
Band mountain streams, and growing
with each passing mlnuto, assumed now
terrors, and tho stricken pooplo looked
forward with dread to thoordoal through
which thoy must pass before morning.
Cut of! from tho rest of tho world, no
railrond communication and with no av
cnuo of telegraph or tolophono communi
cation bovo tho slender, quivering wiro
ovor which this message is sent. With
85 foot more water In tho channol than
In its normal height, tho north branch of
tho Susquehanna throatcnod to engulf
tho town. Every foot of ground in tho
city woh under four feet of water, and
moat of it was 1( feet below tho Btirfaco
of tho Htrcam. Many families wcro
homoless. Hundreds inoro expected to
bo driven from tholr homes.
Tho Howl reached ltfl maximum at 7
o'clock, when It was IW foot nbovo low
wator mark on tho river reglstor nnd
was eight feet deep on tho pavement of
tho courthouse in tho center of tho city.
For an hour tho water hung at that
point and then to tho iinmouso relief of
thousands of nuxlous hearts, it began
slowly to recede At 0 o'clock it had
fallen a foot and is still going down,
slowly, to bo sure, but surely enough to
lift a terrlblo load from u multitude of
hoarts. All now feel that tho worst has
como and goue. Tho rlvor has made n
now record 515 feet nbovo low wator.
A million nud a half in property has
boon destroyed, but bo fat its can bo
learned no lives havo been lost. To glvo
