LAKE BABIES L0SJ 111 RUSH Dancing Pavilion Flooded and the Lunches Drenched at Height of Festivities. There was a mild panic at Cedar ake this afternoon when the storm suddenly broke over the picnic grounds upon which the Western Electric Benevolent association mem bers and their families were eating their picnic lunch. The storm blew up in the twink ling of an eye and the scurry tor cover was so precipitate that several babies and children of small growth were lost in the shuffle. Mothers gathered their children about them in the open and were sat sfied to take a drenching as long as their household pets were ac counted for. The vivid flashes of lightning and the crashes of thunder were so ter rlfying and the crie3 of anxious mothers and crying children so Ditiful that it required the cooler heads of the few men whe were pres ent to avert a more serious panic in the dancing pavilion where most of the crowd sought shelter. Two thousand people who probab ly asked the unual question about nicnic weather were evidently told that it would be a fine day. At any rate they went on the big excursion to Cedar Lake and will probably set tie with the false weather prophets when they get home. Picnic lunches were spread in carefully chosen spots on the grass and the process of de vouring many or them was in pro gress when the sky suddenly darken ed and before many who were long distances from shelter realized what was coming, the rain was falling in sheets. The goodies were shamefully and wrecklessly dumped together In wild rush to escape the fury of the storm and the way pie and cake was sacrificed in the helter skelter rush for the pavilion was heartbreaking to the small boys present. Soooning lovers who had just found a nice quiet spot were com pelled to flee with the rest and many of them were wet to the skin, be cause thy had found such a nice spot far away. On the lake there was the greatest havoc. Nearly all the boats had rented and many of them were a mile or more away from the much desired shelter. The wind was blowing at a terrific rate and dozens of those who thought they were good oarsmen found their boats uncontrollable and were compelled to float ashore. A W dians.
