MONTEREY, VA., March S.— (Special.)—
From alj over tlie county come lamenta
tions over the havoc -wrought by the
flood of last week. Perhaps the greatest
damage done was to tiro" public"roads of .'
the county, many of .".them" ""'being in a
shameful condition .before " the flood came.
It is estimated that $1,000 . will be, re-
quired to" repair the Jackson's-River road
to tire Bath county line. \_
In .the Williamsville Valley the Bull
pasture'river did- much damage also. The
storehouse^ of Jasper Bradshaw was
undermined and narrowly, escaped; being
washed: away. '
A negro mail-carrier between Williams
ville and Millboro* Springs ventured into
a ford below the former place; • was wash-"
ed.from'his horse and lost ; tlve mail
pockets, which were recovered, however,
further down the river. '
A ULLAGE INUNDATED. "
The village of New. Hampden, in tlie
Crabbottbm Vallvy, was almost- entirely
inundated, many of the .inhabitants being
rescued on- horseback^and carried to dry
land.
"-. Mr. Rexrode, the owner of the village
grist-mill, \ had a pen, full of hogs washed
away and ■ drowned. The strc'et running
through the town was rendered impassa
ble.
While plans were being formulated and
forces concentrated looking: to the rest o-.
ration. 'of 'roads 'and the repairing of dam
ages generally, tlie backbone of winter,
supposed to have been broten, suddenly
got a new "hump" onit, and the snow
which began falling early in the wCclc,
continued until a depth of twenty inches
was reached, .with a corresponding in
crease toward the Alleghanics, west of us.
As we look about us and sew the mi- j
merous mountains and valleys along the ;
southern slope of this great- water-shed

covered with such a depth of snow, we
can predict' with Hicks-like precision \ that,
should . this, "mantle of .white" go with
a- "quick, thaw,' supplemented by warm
rains, we ■ 'will.b e able to "turn- off the

I was no longer an idle Invalid, an aim- ■
. less nonentity. . Once more l was a rear
live human being wltn* a; purpose in- lire
and a definite task in store. All of my
papers woultl want ; a report, or course.
And grown suddenly Important, as the
only representative \ of = thepress witliin a
•radius of seventy^miles.Ul was off to the
scene of the tragedy.
But pride goes before a fall. .The next
day.my sense of Importance had vanished.
Part of my specials had been refused and
the telegraph tolls came back- on me for
settlement. -;i It .was .a new experience, ana
rather ■ to one suffering the
torments or ' the damned sumptuous
living— the extent or my inauigerice : haa ;
been milk and bread, broth and .sort
eggs, gentle reader. :. ."" - ;
Had I been a man, ■. I might have . gone
round the corner and: returned . hilarious,
said a few ; unquotaDl©; .words,: or com
forted my soul -with a good, hot,dinner,
at least. Barred these masculine- diver
sions, I proceeded to pour my troubles in ;
the patient ear of a gallant . Kichmona
. editor,, who had . printed my ."stuff,",
though he had' it already from the -Asso
ciated Press. ' Where they got it the Lord
only knows. News' seems; to. come to
them through the air, by; wireless-tele
graphy, and in times of atmospheric dis
turbances, by mental telepathy.
Then I learned the truth from my edi
tor. I was fortunate, in. not having -to
pay for,: all of those messages— being .out
of my. lawful territory. ,
A sense of desolation came over me.
Though the heavens, fall, I must 'keep
silence hereafter. The Associated Press,
would look, out for my papers.' ; I was a
correspondent -without a: bailiwick. :
