aothan the reort of one thai eame up to

mous pile of debris lodged against the P. R.

found alive, a man and two w omen, the man
was i-aught by one leg between two heavy
timbers and the leg w is so badly crushed
that it was thoughi best to amputate it w here
he lay ; this was done and he was taken to
the hospital : the women were able to get on
their feet and wnik away. Think of it!
.aught up by the fury of the llood F'riday
light and dashed with iiiconcciveable force
into the fast aivuuiuiating mountain of
debris! Think of the rush ami surge of the
angry water all around and alsmt them all
of Friday night and Saturday! Think ol
the roaring hell of hreand tiames that swept
over them ail of Saturday and Sunday!
Think of tiiis miiss of mateiia! shattered and
rent hy dynamite! Think of the agony of
apprehension and dread, then conceive if
you can how three human beings could ass
throught it all and come out sane and alive.
Truly miraculous is the word to apply to it
and the power of the Lord is as great to save
as to de-troy.
