before packed up their g'jotls and ch it

and hastened away. The river was
thought to be a place of great security,
and accordingly all tin- available mer
chant vesseis and barges were packed
with people, who passed the night be
tween the 4lh and Mh on board, ex
pecting every moment to see St. Paul's

false one. A few mouths afterward

(Sreat consternation was 'caused in
London !n 1TU-J by a prediction that on
the 1st day of February the waters of
the Thames would otrrtlow the whole
city of London and wash away 10,000
bouses. The prophecy was implicitly
believed, aud many families packed up
their goods aial removed into Kent and
Essex. As the time drew near the
numbers of these emigrants Increased.
In January droves of workmen might
be seen, followed by their wives and
children, trudging on foot to the vil
lages within fifteen or twenty miles to
await the catastrophe. People, of a
higher cl:is were, also to be seen iu
vehicles bound on a similar errand.
By the middle of January at least
iiO.tXlO persons had quitted the doomed
city, leaving nothing but the bare walls
of their homes to be swept away by
the impending floods. Many of the
wealthier class took up their nboda on
the heights of Hampstead. Hibgnte
nnd Itlackheath, and some erected tents
as far away as Walthain abbey on the
north and Croydon on tho south of the
On the fateful morning the wonder
iug crowds were astir at an early hour
to watch the rising of the waters. It
was predicted that the inundation
would be gradual, not sudden, so that
they expected to have plenty of time
to escape ns soon as thoy taw the wa
ters rise beyond the usual mark.
The day grew older, and the Thames
flowed on quietly as of yore. The tide
ebbed at its usual hour, flowed to its
iisnaf height and then ebbed asnin, Jutit
as if twenty astrologers hud not pledg
ed their word to the contrary.
Blank were their fares as evening
approached, and as blank grew the
faces of the citizens to think that they
had made such fools of themselves.

.would not lift Its waters to sweep
away even one home out of the 1.

afraid to ko to sleep Many hun

On the morrow it was seriously dlj
cussed whether it would not be advis
able to duck the false prophet in the
river. Lucidly for tlieni they thought
of an expedient which allayed the
popular fury. They asserted that by
an error they had fixed the date of
this awful inundation a century too
early. The present generation of
cockneys were safe Hnd London would
