Huddled together on a mattress in the rafters of his house, Eugene Hutchinson, his wife and their two little children lived for six hours when the waters of Bull Run and Cathar pin rre*ks overflowed the level by fifty feet. Hutchinson ia a prominent farmer in that section of the country and he was living in a large one-room house with his famiiy on the Manassas road, just south of Sudley Mill, his farm house having been burned to the ground recently. Rising Waters Roar. The flood rose in the vicinity of Sudley Mill about ll o'clock Friday tght. Mrs. Hutchinson had Just pre pared son>e milk for the three-months old baby and was preparing to retire when the water began to roar around the house. J On the rafters of the house a mat tress was spread out. The water came In with a roar and was soon over a foot deep. Mr. Hutchinson, by placing a barrel on flour on the hot stove and a chair on top of that, made an impromptu ladder up to the mattress. Mrs. Hutchinson, seizing the baby, attempted to climb up to the rafters and safety, but Just as she was about to clamber upon the raft ers. the water bolng higher than the stove, the barrel was washed out and It was with great difficulty that she reached the mattress with her tiny baby clinging to her breast. The little two-year-old girl, clutching frantic ally to ? picture book, was thrown up on to the mattress and cuddled Up be side her mother. Fate Kind to Baby. The milk which Mrs. Hutchinson had Just prepared was on a wooden table beside the bed and as the house started to float the water having reached almost to the raft ors. the table floated along and the milk was saved by Mr. Hutch in son. The baby was soon drink ing the inilk and had forgotten everything else. ?fter the 'house had floated for some time the back door opened and the house dipped to one *ide struck (round and stuck.
