Mrs. Bank Dunnlck, et East Oam
bier street, who has been marooned
in Dayton during the flood 'period, re
turned to Mt. Vernon Saturday morn
ing safe and sound, but with a vivid
impression, not soon to 'be forgotten,
of the lurid and harrowing scones
through, which Bhe has just passed1.'
Her escape was little short or miracu
lous, It being one of those odd tricks
of the fickle Fates which we term
Mrs. Dunnlck, bound for St. Louis,
left Columbus Monday night at 9; 45,
arriving: in Dayton about' 12 MC a. m.
The Aral Intimation of anything wrong
came 'Uf Mrs. Donnlck when she heard
a slrea(Mowad toshots-nred.lThe
porter! Announced that all passengers
must Uepjten up to the station.''- There
was a scramble in which Mrs. Dunnlck
left a aaUcael in her. upper Win.-
discerned from the, station which Is sit
uated la the lowlaadsrThlB fact-caused
Mrs;?Duaalck much apprehension
so she (determined to seek a higher
level and, accordingly walked -- up
street to the Algonquin, Netdwhere
she registered.' On turning to go out
doors again, she was astounded to see
the waters rolling by in great torrents
in front of the hotel where she had
been walking but a few minutes before.
The water was rising at the rate of a
foot an hour.
All of the guests of the hotel were
quartered above the second floor so
that the ten-foot wall of water around
the hotel might not reach them, Mrs.
Dunnlck occupying a room oa the
eighth floor. The hotel maintained
splendid service all during this per
iod, serving two meals a day of whole
some and substantial. food to all of
the 300 guests and the flood refugees
who were brought there in great num
bers. Wednesday night the climax of the
flood came and it was then that the
Algonquin guests experienced their
first qualms. Fires had broken out
all over the' city and there was one in
the immediate vicinity of the hotel,
Mrs. Dunnlck being able to read a
newspaper by its flames at two o'clock
in the morning. The hotel was In
inky darkness, there being neither gas
nor electricity, all heat had been shut
off and the only light available was
cast by the rays of a meager supply
of wax candles. Under these gloomy
conditions, Mrs. Dunnlck sat up most
of the night i
Thursday was but a repetition of the
horrors of Wednesday, intensified by,
the number of dead bodies, human be
ings and animals, seen floating around
in the streets, . . . r
Early Friday morning the, waters be
gan to recede and Mrs. Dunnlck was
rable toiwalk down'to the station. There
Bhe found that "the waters had com'
pletely submerged the many trains
held up, there, "passing over the roofs
of the tallest of the cars.; .Mrs. Dun
'nick's satchel, rescued by the ,porteri
as sooaaaposslble and carried to the
telegraph station was completely wat
er soaked and all -of its contents rent
dcred practically worthless.
Two trains were run out "of Dayton
Friday morning. Having1 secured a
pass to get out of the city, which' U
under atarjlal Jaw, Mrs74 Dunnlek
walked seven squares inst'to the edge
of town and there boarded the second
of these trains which arrived in Xen
la at auwer time. 'There, was some
delay hero owing lb the unsettled con
dition of the road through" to Spring
field. Finally the train started and
landed its passengers, consisting of
eight men and one other woman in
addition to Mrs. Dunaicav three miles
from the state hospital at CoIurabuBet
about 11 o'clock. With the dreary pros-
pen ot waiting ibis remaining ois-
tance all started when suddenly , a
large automobile hove late flew 'and
was signalled. Its occupants proved
to be oluclala of the penitentiary and
they wero induced to take on board
the two women of the party and the
man who was carrying Mrs, Dunnlck'
satchel. The penitentiary was reached
abent .mldnightA From, there Mrs.
Dtmatek pwceeded-to the Nell House
and' registered for the night, also tak

Dunnick, she could only get trace of
one man, It being the supposition that
the remainder stayed In the Htatlon
at Dayton. It is only to be surmised
as to how many of these escaped with
their lives as the station was mostly
under water and cut off from communl-'
cation, but it brings out with startling
clearness how much luck attended

The much mooted question of when
the Pennsylvania service north wilt be
restored is a much In the air as ever,

The enormous wash-out of nearly
four miles, from the Pennsylvania
shops down to Gambler, is rapidly be
ing filled In by as large a squad of
workers aa could bo dispensed with at
tho shops. This work is in charge of
Master Mechanic L. S. Klnnaird and
has been pushed below the Koons
farm under his direction. It is hoped
that this work will reach Gambler
shortly. There a temporary foot
bridge can bo constructed over the
river to supplant the washed-out struc
ture and the service north will be in
a fair way towards restoration.
But here Is where the trouble comes
In. The telegraph and telephone wires
are all down from this spot riorth and
the conditions existing there are a mat
ter of mere conjecture. One report
had it that the station at Millersburg
was under four feet of water. It' is
the railroad trace ana us juxtaposition
to the river would naturally subject It
to greater damage than it received in
this vicinity. The reports from Brink
Haven give a fair Idea of what may be
expected in the Killbuck valley. Un
til definite Information can bo obtain
ed, It Is impossible to state accurately
when through trains north will be run.
It Is a well-known fact that the road
bed under the Pennsylvania has been
made much superior to that of the old
C. A. and .0. It was a long and ardu
ous work to obtain this result. This
excellence has all been effaced by the
flood, no vestiges remaining thereof.
Mr. George A. Cheyney, the local
Pennsyvanla agent at Mt Vernon, stat
ed Friday that the road bed could not
possibly be restored to its former ex
cellence In any less time than two
B. O. Running Trains

in on the B. &. O. from tho south
shortly before four o'clock Friday af
ternoon. The train came up from
Newark and proceeded to Ankeny

The large section of track which
was washed out between the railroad
bridge and the Pennsylvania crossing
was placed in such a condition that it
was safo for a train to pWeod over it,
very slowly, on Friday afternoon. The
train brought but very few passengers,'
but a; large amount of express, xne
greatest amount of express consisted
of beer brought here from Utlca.
The work train and the pile-driver
completed work here Friday afternoon
and proceeded to Butler where consld

force of men was left in Mt, Vernon,
however, to make the All between the
