A heavy rsln began falling last night, and, when the Inhabitants of Sand Lako and vicinity bestirred themselves this morning, they saw that the small mountain streams that feed th ohnrn of lakes hnd been converted Into raging torrents. Th disaster which followed was bad enough, but for tunately, the people were somewhat prepared. Glass House Lot was almost emptied a few days ago to nablo tho putting In of a now Ludlow valve, consequently tho laks waB not as high as usual when th waters be gan pouring In to-day. But th rapidity with whloh It wns filled and overflowed th dam caused th greatest consternation, and messongors were sont to warn the settle ments below. Tbe sluice gates were oponcd, but. nevertheless, tb water contlnuod to rise, nnd toward afternoon it bad reached Buch a height as to wsrrant tho gravest apprehen sions. Whon tho news reachod tha city Tnis Sun correspondent hastened to the scene ns rapidly as the bad roads would permit, but It wns Im possible to get rauoh beyond Averill Park. It was loaroed there from eyewitnesses that the ovorftotv,!ng water at Glass House Lake, about two miles from Averill Park, first submerged tbe Ezra Knowlton bouse, but all th tnmatss escaped. Indeed, so far as Is known, ther is no loss ot human lifo. Tbe waters rushed on. submerging McChei ney's Hotel, which was woll filled with sum mer boarders, who conght safety In flight. Tha lower part ot the house had to bo aban doned by the employees. The barn was car ried away and nil th horses were drowned. Tho largo cattle barn at th Knowlson home stead wns noxt UooJod, and the cattle cannot be removed. Tbe water then rushed down th stream toward Enter's Comers, carrying away both bridges, and completely wrecking Hnnt lev it Olmptoad's couutry store, which was carried a mile from Its foundations. The flats woro ovetfloodod to n depth ot five foet be- twoon Slltor s Corners nnd Averill Park. Next the two brldgos near Chris Crape's at Sitter's wero carried away. Isolating that ham let from Glass House and Avorlll Park, and thero In no communication between the places. Tho water then ruehed down tho small stream which passes to the east of Averill Park vil lage toward the Kane Knowlson mills. On the wuy It carried off Mrs. Carmlehael's barn, whoro Abtam Miller hnd some valuable horses stabled. Tbese were, drowned. The dam at Knue's gave war and the mill was submerged. The dam at Knowlson', a substantial affair 100 foot wide and recently strengthoued, was re garded as a probable barrier to the flood. AU tho windows In tho mill were removed, nnd the water did not ranch a grtat height there. Tho people took hope that tbo worst was qvor, but at 9:35 o'clock Knowlson's dam broke, and the surging waters sped on and carried out th dam at McConlhn's mill, a short dis tance below. Now It Is feared,that the dam at Smart's mill will follow. It the other dams along the stream follow sorlous damage must result In tha lower part ot this city, where tbe people are In groat trepidation. Tho rain Is still falllug heavily. The flood ot waters from the Sand Lake district has reached the south part of the city, and tho Hudson Blver Railroad tracks are undor water. The dam at Smart's remains llrm. but the highway In many places between Averill Park and Wrnnnt's Hill is impassable onncco-untot tho water. It now seems prob ablo that n cloud burst started the trouble. Auust. Aug. 27. Tho heavy rnlns to-day causo.l the Hudson to rlso and overflow the tracks of the Hudson Blver Bnllroud at Castle ton.
