The Monongahela Receding and Allegheny Passive. BIG WATER IS CERTAIN' BELOW. Cincinnati Will Oet Sijly Fw-t bj To. night The Flood of JHS4 Almost Rivaled About IHtitxirs Tributaries) of the Ohio Uolng Damage. PiTTsm-RO. Feb. 24. The Mononpa bela is falling slightly, while the Alle gheny is passive, which indicates that the flood has reached its heiphth in this section.- but a mighty rolume of water will flood the Ohio river below. a it is the flood in this vicinity is a close second to that of ISM. Houses and mills entirely surrounded by water are a common sifrht along both rivers. Skiff ferries have taken the place of streets iu many sections ; railroad trains are canceled ; street cars Mopped ; fires in furnaces and mills put out ; cellars flooded ; small houses washed away ; in short the old story of the rivers on a rampage has been re peated all the way from Brownsville to the )hio and for a considerable distance tip the Allegheny. The coal tipple at Brown's station was washed away. At the other end of the Glenwood bridge skiffs were introduced to assist rapid transit. The water washed over the tracks completely cutting off the Second Avenue line's South Side branch. McKeesport and Homestead The Homestead passengers were trans ferred in skiffs ; the South Side line could not reach within a mile of the bridge, and McKeesport's cars were cut off by several hundred feet. The skiff was plied incessantly. - keeping open communications between cars on each side. The Pittsburg. McKeesport and Youghiosrheny railroad suffered more than any railroad entering Pittsburg. From atxwe Hays station to South Thirty-third street in the city, and from there to the yards the tracks were entirely submerged except in spots. Hays station and the valley known as Six Mile Ferry were flooded up to the tracks of the Pittsburg, Virginia and Charleston railroad. The river was easily twice its regular width at this place, and the tracks of the Pemicky railroad and Second avenue traction line were ri feet under water. The water reached within 20 feet of Carson street at First street and not a sign of the Pittsburg and Lake Erie freight tracks were in sight from this point to the yards below. The people were compelled to move out on the lower streets of Allegheny. Plants and dwelling houses we e flooded along the banks of both rivers. The Allegheny Valley railroad yards between Sixteen and Twentieth streets, in what is called the "lowlands," were flooded. The rolling stock was removed before the water reached the tracks. "Work on the Twenty-second street gov ernment dam was suspended all day. No damage is expected. The water was two feet deep on Pike street between Twelfth and Fifteenth street, and filled the cellars of the houses of 20 Polish residents. All thought the houses were going sure and moved out. Cellars in the neighbor hood of Thirtieth street were filled with water but no damage was done. Along the Youghiogheny river it was reported late last night that many of the houses were tieing undermined and washed out entirely. They are threat ened with being overturned and washed down the river or demolished ag:unst other houses. At Dravosburg about 100 houses are half submerged. It was impossible to get from Keynoldton to Dravosburg save by riding through the waters in a wagon. Kesidents of McKeesport are unani mous in declaring that the flood in that city is the greatest in its history. it was a strange sight to stand on the Fifth avenue bridge. McKeesport, last evening and watch fathers roing home in skiffs and climbing into the windows of the seconi story, to see but the tops of porches above the river's level, and here and there a solitary lamp post sticking up out of the water on some street. Braddock was in total darkness last night, except for oil lamps and candles. Gas and electric light plants could not be operated. The town is also without water, pumps are submerged. East Pittsburg and Bessemer are al most isolated through the action of Turtle creek, which has become a wild river. The town of Turtle Creek is un der three feet of water, and at Port Perry some of the people living close to the river's edge were forced to move upstairs. In a number of instances tho same circumstances exist in Brad dock. The Pittsburg ana Lake Erie railroad put great trains over trestles to keep them from being washed adrift. Charleston-. V. Va., Feb 24. The river here is 40 feet and rising, and all of the lower part of the city is under water. Both the Kanawha and Elk rivers are rising, and there is now evi dence that great suffering among the lower classes will follow the receding of the waters. At least 1.0OO people are temporarily homeless and hungry. Monongahela City, Pa., Feb. 24. Much damage has been done at this place. About 100 houses on East Main street are surrounded by water, and many of the occupants have moved upstairs or into other houses. There have been no trains running on either the Pennsylvania or Lake Erie railroads. Cincinnati, Feb. 2. In the absence of the great cloudburst at headwaters of the Monongahela river, no one dreamed the river here would reach a maximum of over 55 feet. Opinions changed when it was learned that a flood in tho Allegheny was coming down just late enougli to pile in on that of the Monongahela. The signal service observer here predicts 60 feet will be reached at Cincinnati by tonight. Reports from points above show rapid rises, from Pittsburg to Cincin nati. However, the headwater streams are falling, stationary at 2sew river and at Elizabeth on the Little Ka nawha, falling at ixralsa on the Big Sandy and rising slowly at several other sources or tributaries. At Cattlettsburg, Ky., 100 houses are more or less submerged and a few feet more will affoet every business hoase in the city. Cellars on Front and Third Treets at Portsmouth are flooded and many people are driven from their Swellings. Portions of Maysville, Ky., and much of Aberdeen, O., are sub merged, driving families from their homes. On the Big Sandy river the vil lages of East Point and Solyerville have been made uninhabitable. lti reported that a family of six were browned at Solyerville. At Louisa. Ky.. all mails are stopped and all telphone wires are down. Here at Cincinnati and vicinity the towns of Dayton and Belleruo and portions of Newport. Ky.. are already suffering much inconvenience. Water in Cincinnati has invaded the Central depot and compelled the Big Four and other roads to seek higher grounds. Gardeners in Mill Creek valley are already losing heavily. If the river should reach 00 feet the loss in all the places mentioned above will be greatly increased. PoRTMtocTir, O., Feb. 24. The Ohio river has passed the danger point. Residents of Mill street and East Front street have moved. The following fac tories have been closed by the flood : Portsmounth Firebrick works. Burgess Steel and Iron works. Warder Brick works, Ohio Stove foundry and King Brick works. The Norfolk and Wes tern sent only two trains through. CampMcOullock and Arion are wrecked by the flood in Brush creek.

He declined to take medicine, but in sisted upon resorting to oldfashioned remedies, hot whisky being his favorite. Out at Corbett's quarters work is going smoothly.
