If atlneea Wednesday and Satordaj.
Novor before wns my heart a prey to such
anxiety. All tho men hod fathered nt tho
windows to witness the terrifying spect&elo
without. We turned towards tho ceutro of
the room, and with a snd smile gazed on tho
softened light of the lamps that fell on tho
table beforo us with the sweetness of fading
sunset. I recalled to mind the pleasant
winter evenings when we used to bo all
seated around the same table. It was still
tho samo room, glowing with tho warmest
affection. But while peace reigned within, I
could hear behind mo the sullon roar of tho
unbridled river, ever rising higher and
" Louis," whisperod my brother Pierre,
" tho water is only threo foet from the
window; something must bo dono."
I nudged his arm to keep him silent. But
tho dancer could no longor be concealed.
Tho cuttle were dyin in tho stables. Wo
could hear their plaintive bellowing and bleat
ing in the stalls, and the horses were utter
ing thoso frightonod snorts one hears when
thero is dancer at hand.
"MyGodI my God!" cried Almee, who
sprang from her seat, pressing her temples
with her hands and shuddering as she spoke.
All tho others now roso and we could no
longor prevent them from rushing to tho
windows. Thero they stood, siiont and
motionless, in an agony of terror.
A deeper twilight had fallen. A dim light
hovered over the turbid expanso of water.
Olouds of mist hung on the vorgo of tho
horizon. All was onvelopod in hazo. It was
tho closo of a frightful day, slowly sinking
into a night of death. And not a human
sound nothing savo the rumbling of tho
spreading sea, the hollowing of the cattle and
the neighing of tho horses.
"My Godl my Godl" exolalmed the
women in trembling accents, as if afraid to
speak above a whisper.
Just then a terrible crash was heard. The
maddened boasts outside had burst the doors
of tho stables. They passed Gus on tho
tawny billows, whirling and spinning around
it) the angry curronfs. The sheep were
tossed like withered leavos and suoked
beneath the whirling eddies. The cottlo and
horses struggled, plunged and then lost their
footing. Ono largo gray horso especially
mado a gallant fight for life; he reared,
plunged and snorted madly, but tho resistless
waters enveloped him at last and closed over
him iu quiet triumph.
Then wo uttered our first lamentations.
They could no longer be suppressed. Wo
had cause to lament indeed. With our hands
stretohed out towords those dear animals,
swept away before our eyes, we all gave way
to our pout-up grief in a burst of sobs and
tears. Ahl this was ruin iudoodi our harvest

THE "LEADING" CLOTHIERS,
It is amusing to observe the " parrot-like " fashion with
which some puerile and inconsiderable clothing concerns at
tempt to imitate our advertisements and OUR ORIGINAL
MODERN METHODS of liberal dealing with the public.
The trouble is that while these fellows copy our advertise
ments they don't copy our " FACTS," nor imitate our goods
in quality or value.
Now our GREAT "TEN-DOLLAR SALE," which will
take place THURSDAY, DEC. 15, is a " SOLID FACT " in
the Clothing Business that never has been, and never will be, du
plicated. We shall, as usual, fulfil our advertisement to the
letter. The goods are ready for your examination to-day. Come
and see them.

let us trust to this no loneor. Tho water is
touching tho window."
This warning aroused our reeling senses.
Emerging from my stupor I shrugged my
shoulders, saying i " Money is nothing after
all. Bo long as wo ora all saved, wo have no
cause for regret. Wo havo only to go to
work again to regain what is lost."
" Yes, yes. You are right, father," replied
Jacques, nervously, and "wejtre in no dan.
ger. Tho walls aro strong. Wo will go out
upon the roof."
This was now tho onlyrefugo left. Tho
water, which had climbed tho staircase step
by step, with quiet stealth, was now pouring
in at tho door. We all rushed to tho garret,
urged on by that noed ono feels in the hour
of danger of keeping close togetbor. Oyprion
had disappeared, I called him, and saw him
return from one of tho adjoining rooms, his
f oce sadly overcast.
Then.when I mentlonod the absence of our
two servants and expressed my intention to
wait for them, he looked at mo strangely and
whispored: "Dead I The corner of tho shed
under their room has just been swept away."
The poor girls must navo gone to got their
little savings that thoy kept in their trunks.
He told me that they nad used a ladder for a
bridgo to gain an adjoining building. I told
him to say not a word about it. A cold shud
der thrilled through my frame. Death had
entered the house.
Luokily the roof was broad and not very
steep. We readied it by a skylight, near
which stood a sort of platform. It was hero
that our party now took refuge. The womon
seated themselves upon it. The men began
examining tho roof, oven the two lofty chim
neys at either end. I remained leaning on
the edge of tho platform, eagerly scanning
" Help must surely come." I said, encour
agingly. ' ' The people of Saintln have boats,
Thoy will come this way. Seo, is not that a
lantern on the water ?"
But no one answered me. Pierre, scarce
knowing what ho was doing, had lighted his
pipe and was smoking so vigorously that he
crunched the end of tho pipestem at each
puff. Jacques and Gyprfen were looking
with sad faces out on tho rising waters, while
Gaspard. with clinched hondB, paced tho
root as if seeking some nlan of escape.
Tho silent, shivering womon sat at our
feet, their faces hidden in their hands to
shut out the awful sight. But at last Boso
raised her head, cast a frightened glaneo
around her and askod i " 'Where are the serv
ants ? Why do thoy not come up V
I made no anBwor, Iiookingmo fixedly In
tho faoo, she again oskod, ' Where are the
I could not tell her on untruth, so I
abruptly turned away. But I felt that the
wnt aeathlyoourU" that' hMi "previously
thrilled me now passed through the women.
They understood what had happened. Mario
sprang up suddenly, uttering a despairing
moan, and then sat down in a burst of tear.

Aimee, wrapping her skirts about her two
children, pressed them closer to her bosom
as if in on effort to protect them. Voronique,
with her face hidden in her hands, did not
move. Aunt Agatho, pale and trombling, re
peated a fervent prayer.
The soone around us now was ono of
sovereign grandeur. Night had fallen, but
tho heavens retained all the transparency of
a clear summer evening. Tho moon had not
yet risen, but tho sky twinkled with countless
stars, sot in so pure a blue that the air was
filled with an azure light. Tho twilight still
seemed to linger on tho vorgo of the distant
horizon, and tho vastexpanBo of water spread
out beneath this tranquil Bky, shining with
a ghastly phosphorescent brightness that lit
up the tiny bubbles that played on the crest
of each breaking wavo
The earth was no longer risible. Tho
entire plain was submerged. At times I
forgot our danger. One evening at
Marseilles I had thus behold tho sea, and I
stood gazing at tho scene filled with admira
tion. " The water is rising, tho water is rising,"
repeated my brother, crunching his pipe
stem between his teeth as before. The wator
was now within throe feet of tho roof, and
was beginning to lose its tranquillity. Cur
rents were sotting in. After the water had
reached a certain height we wero no longer
protected by the rising ground that lay in
front of the village. In less than an hour the
water grew threatening, turbid, dashing vio
lently against tho house, and whirling dis.
iointed timbers, broken casks and tufts of
terbago around and around in its boiling
Jacques, maddened by the sobbing of tho
woman, exclaimed : "We cannot stay horo
longor; something must be dono. father,
I beg you let us try to do something."
" Yes, yes," I muttered, " let us try to do
But nono of us knew what. Gorpard offered
to take Veronique on his baok and swim with
her to some placo of safety, Pierre talked of
a raft. That was folly.
At lost Oyprieu said t " If we could only
reach the church."
The church, with its little squaro belfry,
still remained above tho water. Thero wero
seven houses between it and us. One houso
which stood at the edgo of the village adjoined
a higher building, which was in turn con
nected with a neighboring house. Perhaps
wo would bo able to reach the presbytery by
clambering along tho roofs, and then wo
could easily enter the church.
Many pooplo had already taken refuge
there, for the neighboring roofs were vacant,
and wo oonld hoar the sound of voices in tbe
belfry. But how many dangers should we
overcome before Teaching it I
" It is impossible," said Pierre. " The

I lot him co. Ha was richt. He was now
compelled to attempt the impossible. Ho
had succeeded with tho aid of an iron cramp,
hook, fastoned to the chimney, in reaching
tho roof of a neighboring houso, when his
wife, Aimee, raising hor head, .saw that ho
was no longer with us.
' "Where is hot" sho cried out, " Ho shall

When she saw him on the roof of tho house
sho ran alonn tho tiles towards him, still
clinging fast to her hobos.
" Oyprien," sho shrieked, " wait for mo,
I am going with you ; I will die with you."
She insisted. Leaning over the roof, he
entreated hor to stay, promising that ho
would 1k back immediately, ana that wo
would all bo saved, liut she only shook hor
head, and in a frenzied voice again cried :
" I'm going with you."
Hevtasonligod to take the children from
her. Then he helped hor to clambor up to
him. Wo could now seo thom picking their
steps along tho edge of tho roof. Thoy ad
vanced slowly. She had taken the children
in hor arms again, both of them crying
niteously. At almost overy step Cypricn
turned around to encourago her.
" liring her to a placo opsafoty and return

his hand, but tho roarof the waters smothered
his volco. Boon wo lost sight of thorn en

that was lower than the first.
In about flvo minutes thoy reappoared on
the third houso, tha roof of which must havo
been very stocp, as they wero dragging them
selves along it on their knees.
A sudden fear seized mo. I put my hands
to my lips and shouted with all my might :
" Como back, oomo back!"

cried out to them also to retum. Our voices
arrested them for nn instant, but they imme
diately continued to advance. Thoy had
now reached tho angle of tho street in front
of the ltainbean houso, a tall building, tho
roof of which was nt least threo foet lilghor
than that of any of its neighbors. They lies,
ttatod for au instant. Then Oyprion climbed
up a chimney pipe with tho agility of a cat.
Aimeo, who was compelled to wait for him,
remained standing on the middle of tho roof.
Wo could plainly seo her, pressing hor
children to her bosom, her dark form stand
ing out olearly in tho (lira light. It was then
that our frightful misfortunes began.
Tho Itainboau houso, whicli had been
originally intended for a workshop, was very
unsubstantially built. Moreover, the resist

was dashing against its front, I imagined
that I ooulfTsoo it tremble under the assaults

moon had risen a round, full moon, whose
yollow ravs lit up the vast waste around with
the vividness of a huge lamp. Not a single
detail of the catastrophe was lost to ub. It
was tho Ralnboau house that had just been
swept away. Wo uttered a terrible cry on
seeing Cypricn disappear.
When tno crash took place we eould see
only a tremendous splash and a whirling vor
tex whero the dchris of tho roof went down.
Then all was tranquil. Tho waters resumed
thoir level for an instant as tho ends of the
shattered timbers rose abovo tho surface.
Thero wns a moss of tangled rafters and
beauiB, disjointed, broken and in inextricable
confusion. And in tho midst of this moss I
fancied I snv n moving object, something
making superhuman efforts to free itself.
"Ho lives I" I cried. "Ahl God be praised
he lives I Thoro, above that whito sheet of
water, shining in the moonlight 1"
Wo laughed norvously. Wo clapped our

But our laughtor ceased. We did not utter
anothor word; our tongues wero parnlyzed
with horror. Wo hod just realized tho
terriblo situation in whioh Oyprien was
placed. In tho fall of tho house his fcot had
got caught between two beams, and thero ho
hung, head downward, a few inches from
the water and utterly powerless to free him
self. His agony must havo been frightful.
Aimee was still btanding on the roof of tho
adjoining houso with her two children. Sho
Bhookwith a convulsivo shudder. Sho was
looking at her husband dying a few feet
below hor, nevor once moving hor eyes from
the nnfortunato man. Sho uttered a pierc
ing yell that froze our hearts with horror.
" Wo cannot let him die like that," said
Jacquos, half distracted. " Como, wo must
go to his resouo."
" We might, perhaps, bo able- to clambor
along the beams," answered Pierre. " Wo
could then rolease him."
They w ero hurrying towards the adjoining
roof when tho second houso crumbled away.
It was iniKssiblo to reach him now. A cold
shudder shot through us. Wo grasped each
other's hands mechanically, and stood terror
stricken without tho power to toko our eyes
from the frightful spectacle.
Cypricn had at first tried to stiffen and con
tract his limbs. With extraordinary strength
he thus managed to keep abovo the water,
maintaining his body in an obliquo position.
At last fatiguo overpowered him. But he
struggled bravely, trying to grasp tho beams
from which ho hung and flinging his hands
around him in a desperate effort to clutoh
anything within reach.
Then, accepting his fate, ho fell again and
hung motionless above the treacherous flood,
but death wasslow in coming. The waterwas
now touching his hair and still slowly rising.
Ho most havo felt its wet breath on his fore.

face. Then the water rose above his eyefi IH

Tho women at our feet buried their faoefl iM
in their bands. We fell upon our knees with l:iM
uplifted arms, weeping and besieging heaves IHfl
with prayer. Aimee still stood on tho root ?H
pressing her babes to her bosom, her shrill iIH
shrieks piercing tho stillness of the night. . H
I cannot toll how long we remained In this H
state of Btupor. When I como to my senses M
again the water had risen alarmingly. It had iH
now reached the tiles, and the roof was only lwH
a narrow island rising nbovo an immense sea. iiH
The houses to tho right and left of us must 'irl
havo all crumbled away. The water was isfU
"Wo aro moving," whisperod ose, whr fl
was crouohing on the tiles. XH
Indeed, we did feel a sensation like thai j)M
caused by tho rolling of a ship, aud it tifl
seemed as if tho roof was changed into a raft. jffl
Tho great swelling waves appeared to whirl uffl
ns along. Hut when we looked at the tower 'fl
of tho church standing motionless in front of ;&
us this dizziness ceased, and wo found our- !
selves still in tho samo spot, with the waves n"H
surging around us. SI
Tho waters roared more furiously. Big CH
flecks of foam woro flung around our fset, fl
Wo could hear tho dull groaning of tha St.B
water-filled houso and the creaking of tha 'fl
partition walls as tho flood burst through. JSfl
At times when the attaok became moro flerca M
and the timbers struck the building end "
foremost, it seemed to us that all was over, ':fl
that tho wMls were rent asunder and that wo Aifl
wore plunging into the abyss through tho JH
yawning brcaoh. 5E1
Oaspard had ventured to the very edge of $
tho roof. Ho sucoeeded in seizing a beam, U

" Wo must defend ourselves." bo cried. S
Jacques also tried to grapple a long pola M.U
drifting by. Pierre helped him. I oursed XMM
the old ago that had robbed me of my iSfll
strength and left mo weak as a child. Tho "9.11
defense began a duel between threo men 'I
and an angry river. Oaspard, holding tho fl

Tor noarly an hour the unequal straggle MU
lasted. Finally they grew desperate, awear ,,?(
