The Flood at Alton.
Alton, III., April 20.-The river at this
point lias risen three Inches in the twenty
four hours ending at 5 o'clock this evenintr.
but is expected to come to a Btand by to
morrow. A temporary decline is antici
pated until the arrival of the flood from the
rivers. Capt. Starr, of the ferryboat 'Al
tonian," has removed about twenty families
from Dresser's Island ami some from Mis
souri Point, whose farms had been sub
merged. At this writing the water has just
reached the height of the flood of 1870,
and now stands 20 IV-et 5 inches above low
The Situation at Ouincy.
Qt:i.NCV, Ills., April 29. The river is de
clining at the rate of about six inches in
twenty-four hours, having fallen over six
teen inches sine-it began. Much relief is
felt here, ns all danger for the present is
past. Col. Moore, general ai-cnt for the
C. B. and Q., accompanied by other officers
oi the road, went down to the Soy Bottoms
to-day. He says that trains will resume
schedule time to Hannibal from here by
Monday next. The bridge which was
washed away will bo completed Sunday.
Tlie Minnesota Floods.
St. Pall, Minn., April 29.-During the
morning it was dillicult to decide whether
the river was rising or stationary. At 1 1 :45
a. m. the river stood at nineteen feet five
and half inches by the government gauge,
since there has been no perceptible chantrc
It is, therefore, probable the flood lias
reached its greatest height and will soon
begin to rececl. But little change is no
ticeable from yesterday in the situation in
the iuundated districts. In all some eight
bouses have been partially or wholly lifted
from their foundations. No more scrioua
casualties have been reported.
All the popular light-houses in Franco

The respect which tho Irish have for
their priests does not prevent them
from enjoying a joke at their expense.
I remember hearing of an instance of a
poor girl going to a priest to ask him to
unite her to the boy of her choice. Tho
holy man demanded two sovereigns for
the accommodation. The girl pleaded
hard that she had not so much money;
but lie was inexorable; two sovereigus
lie must have.
She was leaving tho houso in tho
greatest despondency, when her eye
lighted on thu priest's cloak hanging
on si peg in the hall. A bright thought
occurred to her miick Irish mind: she
took it down and vanished. Half un
hour later she returned with the money,
accompanied by her beloved Pat. Tho
priest was now nil smiles, performed
the service with great goodwill, ami be
stowed on the lumpy couple a hearty
blessing; and, us they left tho church,
Kathleen dropped a curtsy, thanked
him for bis kindness, and presented
him with the pawnticket that lie might
recover his cloak.
Tho convenient manner in which
priests modify the penalties for olVenses
is exemplified in tho following story: A

ho had to tell was that ho had stolen a

Bread Making in the East
On our return an instructive sMit
awaited us. Wo saw how bread was
baked in an adjoining building. It was
done with a rapidity which" explains

generally leavened. A large round hole
in uiu grouna, some ono and one-half
feet deep, and the same in diameter,
forms tho oven. In this lio some live
coals, which, as in Hosca's time, (Ho
sea, vii., 6), aro not allowed to go out
at night, and when tho baking has to bo
done, are again revived.
The housewife first forms a lump of
dough with her baud, then suddenly
spreads it out with an indescribably
rapid motion of both hands which can
as little bo imitated as a conjurer's
Jiiovement-into a cako as thin as a
leaf, which with a moistened dab or
rag sho presses into tho hot oven where
it remains sticking. In a minute it be
gins to nwvo, and is at once taken out
to mako room for tho following one.
Tho bread is now ready, not thicker
than parchment, not very relishing and
somewhat sandy on the outside, but
really enjoyable for one who has a good
appetite. Although of tho size of a
huge plate, such a slico contains but
little nourishment, and Jeremiah could
hardly bo saved from starvation when
only ono such pieco of bread was given
him every day. OMl.
