and the water was up to my knees Thewater
water was about twenty feet deep wheretlw

to scramble to the top of the smoking ca
The porter was ahead of meIhad
I bad great trouble lifting myself fromtho

now 0 the roof to take my band and giveme
me a lift He answered that lie bud to lookout
out for himself and did not help m Thatwas
was the last I heard him nay A few secondslater
later he was swept into the water and carried

The smoking car had drifted down theriver

Neither could I get out o my shoes andtrousers
