This Is the story told by a sehntchen. or mar
riage broker, who Is In pursuit ot his fo snd
ot vengeance:
For more than thirty years Maximilian Corn
feld suffered from bssbtulness. It Interfered
with his social advancement and brought htm
many griefs. It sent htm to sit moping In a
corner, whlleothorladsdanced'and had fun with
the protty Polish girls of Gallcla. It was only
among the girls that young Cornfeld wns
bashful, and when he Immigrated he becamo
known as a smart business man. Tho rluh
cnD manufactory at 105 South Fifth aventm
that he conducts with his brothers thrived,
and he was looked on with favorable eys by
many mothers with marriageable daugutors.
His brother succumbed to the attractions of
Miss Fadle Cohen nearly twelve months ago,
nnd trlod to por.'unde Maximilian to follow his
example. Thete wns room In th father's
home nt 2P5 l'.ast Llghtr-flrst street for anoth
er family, nnd the old man enttented his fa
vorite son to bring homo awlfo. In October
of lost year, when his mother was ill. and told
him that sho could not dlo happy until she saw
him a husband and a father, Maximilian swore
thnt ho would find a wife before Christmas.
Business took him lo BrooUlju. and at Dr.
Frisdlnndor's synagogue In Eoerum place he
fell In love. Tho girl was a brunette. v.Ith big
eyes, an oval faco, and glorious hair. Beforo
Max had mustered courage to ask the man
sitting beside him who she was the service
was over and the nynagoguo was empty.
On Nov. 16 last he vnTledxm Samuel Fred
man at 22 Attorney itrot and conllded to him
111, desire t marry. Ills bnaluoss train
ing made hlru moderate his anxloty to
be weddod for fear of , a rlae In the
rrlc oi wives, and ho told Mr. Friedman
that he was marrying only to oblige
hlamnther. Ilowanted a young, girl with an
oral face aud big. dark ores. If she had a for
tune, so much the better: but money was not
essential, so that tba ulrl was good and bad
clothes enough to lust her twolye monttiB.
For an article such as he described Mr. Loru
rld was willing to pay 132. rrladmnn's usual
price Is iJu. but his client's Indifference led
riiDi lo'mak the liberal discount.
Tro weeks altar the agreement was made
Friedman eeut for Cornfeld and told him to
get ready to get married. 11 had found rt
treasure, bhe was young only an. She had
un oral face, big eyex. glorious hair, and n
small fortune, ah lled tn Brooklyu. and was
a member ot Dr. Frledlauder'n synagogue lu
jloorum Mace. .... , ., . Vi
Cornleld rcaogulted the description, and bis
heart bat rapidly. When the eulinteben ex
plained that making the acquaintance of so
beautiful a young Woman wns expensive,
Corufeld gave him lit;, all the money he had In
bis pocket, and bogged him not to delay the
Introduction. .,
On Dec. 1 Cornfeld was told thnt the young
woman was MIsk itachilel halm, and thatlf he
would put on his vMtlng clothes irledman
would take him to Brooklyn to spend the
evening with her. Love had coaauered the
youn man's bashfulness. and In evening
clothes and n blue llk tie he met irledman nt
the place appointed. Be betrayed bis anxiety
for the lntroduetlen. and Friedman asked htm
tor tome security for the rest of his lee. In case
tbe wedding was eoUmnlzed. Laughing at
hla auspicious Cornfeld handed him a sbeot of'
paper on which ho bad wrlttten:
Dec 1. imhi I lure to lr Mr (.cnlckter slitten
dollars when I let uisrrleil te Mtu Kaiin
Gesslckter Is Jewish German slang far a
person who is oat of the way smurt. nnd Corn
feld always called Friedman "old Oestlck
ter." At the sight of .MUsKalm. who wns tbe
girl he had loved before he knew hsr. Corn
feld's baabfulncss cot tbe bettor ot him. and
it was nearlv midnight. Friedman says, beforo
he could lndnce Cornfeld to "return to the
house from which he had run. A few days
later the elder Cornfelds paid Mr. and Mrs.
Kalm a visit of congratulation, the business
details wr arranged satisfactorily, and tho
engagement was announced.
On receipt of nn Invitation to the wedding
the schatchen called on Cornfeld toredaembU
note. Cornfeld told blm to w.-irt until after tho
ceremony. 1IH uancCe might die. nnd he had
alrendy spont V for tho Introduction and.ns
much more In expenses. Tho wedding was
fjxed for April .2, nnd Botanic Hall In Kast
Broadway was thn place apuoluted. Friedman
was the llrBt of the guests to nrrhe. Cornfeld
and Miss Knlm drnre up together In acarrlSLe.
nnd when Friedman opened the door for them
he whispered: ...
" Don't forget rav sixteen dollars. You can
give it to me now. You'ro as good as married."
When tbe rabbi had pronounced tbe last
words of tne -onlce and friends were pressing
around to ofJorcongratulatlonsFrledman again
presented his account and nffrod to take $15
for a recolpt In lull Corntcld laegbedat him.
and Friedman appealed te the brldo. who told
blm that if Cornfeld was tool enough to par
she would recrot hating mnrrled him.
On Aug. 7 Friedman determined to try
one more to collect big fee. When be called
at 295 East EIchty-rtrstRtrcet Max Cornfeld
was In bed. Old Cornfeld, according to the
schatchen, ordered Friedman from the bouse,
and nben ho rotusod to go nssatdted him.
Young Cofnfeld. harlng the noise, ran In nnd
knocked his Creditor down. Mr. rrledman Is
71 years old and feeble. He wns considerably

The Ulnea Itonae I.aka Dam Borate and a
Tor-rent of Witter HneJtea Down the
Valley -Other Dam Carried Away,
Stills Flooded, a ftlora Swept front Its
Fonndnllona, and Itoriti Drowned.
Tnor. Aug. 27. 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.
