FROM THE FLOOD.
A Well-Known Gentleman's Exper

Elfe aad Property .
Mr. R. E. Spangler, of Macomb,
postofflce inspector, and well-known
in this city, as everywhere in
the Eleventh congressional district,
was an eye witness to the recent

alley, Pennsylvania, being upon the
scene at the time in the performance of
Mr. Spangler sent his wif at Macomb
a graphic description of his experiences
which indeed includes his own nnrrow
escape. His letter is dit.-.l Altoona,
Fa.. June 2, and it is published in the
Eag)e. He says:
I telegraphed you on Thursdlfy that I
should leave for Washington on that
day. I left on the 3:15 train that after
noon, going over the PennsylvanU rail
road. Since then what an experience I
have had I
We Rot into Pittsburgh without any
thing especial occurring, and left there
on time. At Johnstown, eighty miles
east, we were delayed by high waters,
caused by the excessive rains. A por
tion of the city was under water, many
people being in the second stories of
bouses, but this is usual at this season
of the year and caused no especial un
easiness. At Conemaugh, three miles east of
Johnstown, we were informed that the
track had been washed away a few miles
east, near the famous Horseshoe
bend, and we side-tracked at East Cone
maugh. The tracks here run alongside
of a stream, known as the Conemsugh
creek. This creek was much swollen be
cause of the rains, and steadily under
mined the track. There are several
tracks here, as this is the end of a di
vision, and there is quite a large yard and
Some eight or ten miles above where
we were is a large reservoir, one mile
wide, three miles long and ninety feet at
the dam. At 12 o'clock noon, a report
came that this dam was likely to give

We were on the regular express train
which had left Pittsburgh in two see
tions. In the first section were the bag
gage cars, a ay coacnes ana parlor cars;
in the second section were the mail, ex
press and Pullman cars, I being on this
section. There was also in the yard here

presume, the trains were all side tracked
on the outside tracks of the yards, near
the town and mountain on the north
side of the creek. The first section of Pull
man cars occupied the outside track, the
second section of the express the second
track, and the accommodation train the
third track, all standing close together
and parallel to each other. There were
also many freight trains in the yard,
caused by the blockade ahead.
While it was thought possible that
there might be some danger (and it was
discussed in an informal manner) yet no
one could he found who gave the matter
serious consideration. No one left the
cars except to walk out along the tracks,
and then not far, as a gentle cold rain
was falling and there was no certainty as
to when we were to start out.
THE DRKADFtTL MOMENT.
Suddenly at SAM p. m. the sharp
whistle of an engine was heard. Then
all the engines in the yard joined in the
signal. I ran to the rear of the train and
saw people running to the bilk, while
"Run for the mountains! The reseryoir
has burst!" was the agonized cry of all.
I was at the rear of the train one car
from my car. I ran through, giving the
alarm as 1 went. I grabbed my coat and
umbrella and rushed for the platform. In
the car were a number of ladies and it
was my only thought to assist them.
Among others were the wife and daugh
ter of Mr. E. W. Ilalford, secretary to the
When I reached the ground, the peo
ple were running in all directions. Along
side of our car was a deep ditch, and
others had to be crossed. I assisted peo
ple over and finally turned to run; but a
lady with a little child a lovely girl five
or six years old called to me: "Oh, God!
Do not leave us to perish!" I cast one
look up the valley. Oh, what a sight!
Bearing right down on us with the veloc
ity of a race horse, was
THE AWFUL FLOOD,
stretching from monntain to mountain,
and reaching as high, almoet, it seemed,
as heaven. It was an awfil moment.
To stay was almost certain death; but my
better nature conquered the cowardly
impulse, and I leaped bark across that
iatai g.icd, swung me cmid under my
arm grasped the lady with my other hand
then back across the ditch and away up
the street. Behind us, the awful waters;
ahead, the mountain of refuge! There are
times when one seems endowed with su
perhuman strength. Such a moment was
this. Half way up the street, I passed Miss
Halrord. She bad given up. I called to
her to encourage her, but she only ap
pealed to me for aid. She is subject to
heart disease and was helples. I started
the little girl on ahead of me and caught
Miss H. by the arm, and together we toiled
up that awful mountain, the flood up to
our shoe-tops. Fear and determination
conquered, and we reached a place of
safety. Then, and only then,
I LOOKED BACK.
May Ood spare Hie the opportunity of
ever witnessing another such a sight!
everything in the path of that terrible
flood was swept away. Houses fell and
were torn to pieces as a child would toss
a paper box. The immense engines
weighing a half-hundred tons were picked
up and carried away. Great cars, heav
ily loaded with freight, were thrown aside
as if they had been wooden boxes. Most
horrible of all, the passenger coaches,
some of them containing people who
could not escape, were overwhelmed or
carried down with the stream to where
they fell from a bridge into the water.
I saw one entire train move down, and
then I turned away from a sight that
froze the blood in my veins.
Not more than three minutes had
elapsed from the time the first warning
sounded until I turned from this awful
sight; yet in that time a hundred houses
had fallen, the yard had been stripped of
cars with the exception of the section on
which I had been and two or three cars
from the first section and fifty, possibly
one hundred people bad lost their lives.

Jn the town as large as Blandinville was
gone. Hundreds of people who had ess
caped from the flood were homeless and
potmlless. The scene is beyond descrip-1
tiers. Hufflce it to say that the homes!
which remained were thrown open and
all were cared for as well as could be. I
formed one of a party of six the others
being Mrs. E. W. Halford and daughter.

A lite Show 4'omlnc.
Anaress circus, museum and menag
erie will exhibit in Rock Island, Friday,
June 21. and will no doubt meet with
the patronage which they deserve, as
this is the first tent show we have bad
lately and they are reported as giving
first-class exhibitions. In addition to a
strictly first class ring performance
they have a large and varied collection
oi beasts, birds and reptiles and manv
freaks of nature, curiosities, etc. They
give a street parade at 10 a. m., on the
date of exhibitions in which will he
seen a score of cages, "Zip," the large
African elephant, a pair of camels, the
smallest quartette of Shetland ponies in
the world and many more novel and
pleasing features, and immediately be
fore opening the show doors a series of
free outside exhibitions take place on the
circus lots. Our friends from the coun
try should come in early in order to wit
ness all the free allows before the big
show opens. Notwithstanding the fact
that this is one of the largest shows now
traveling, the price of admission is the
same as is now charged by small inferior
shows. 50 cents for adults and 25 cents
for children under ten years. No games
of chance or catchpenny devices are al
lowed with or around this show, and
everything connected with the show is
moral and refined.
Don't forget the date. Friday, June 21.
The Kir Iter.

prospect that this nuisance will be made
scarce when he gels beyond the limit of
human existence, if he is altogether too
frequent here below. An exchange ob
Saint Peter sits by the heavenly gates
ins Hands on tue strings of a lyre, and he
sings a low song as he patiently waits for
tne souls ot those who expire, lie hears
in the distance the chorus of song that
swells at tne Toot of bis. throne, and he
smiles as the music is wafted along, and
warbles this lay of his own: "There is
room in this region for millions of souls,
no oy sorrow and woe were bereft; Us
for those who have suffered tbe melody
roiis, out tne Kicker must turn to tbe left.
There is room for the people, who when
mey were young, persisted in sowing
wild oats, and wbo boomed up their town
with sinew and tongue but the kicker
must go with tbe goats. There is room
for the people who pointed with pride to
beauty and growth of their town, who
kept singing its praises and charms till
they died but the kickers will please
ramble down . They'd say the music was
all out or tune, and tbe angelic robes
hand-me-downs; they'd send for a jeweler
off to the moon to sample the gold in the
crowns. So, while there is room for a
million of souls wbo by sorrow and woe
were bereft, we want no complaint of the
music that rolls so the kicker mast turn
to the left."
It is Abominable!
to go through life with "snags" in the
