A sudden freshet in the Norihfork river, east of Johnstown, Pa., in the Allegheny moun tains resulted iu an awful catastrophe. Last evening, according to a reliable courier who arrives at Blairsville to-night, 1,500 lives were lost. The reservoir above the town broke about 5 o'clock and the im mense volume of water rushed down to the city, carrying death and destruction. Houses with their occupants were swept away and hundreds cf people were drowned There was no communication from Johnstown up to a late hour, but a tele graph operator on the Pennsylvania road at Sugar Hollow, about twelve miles this side of Johnstown, reported that by 7 o'clock at least seventy-five dead bodies had floated past The wires are all down and no trains are running east of Blairsville, which is about twenty-fiye miles west of Johnstown, and there is no way to get to the scene of the disaster and full particulars can hardly be obtained to-uight, although every efiort is b.ing made to do so. TWO HUNDRED DEAD BODIES. Florence witn its load of eatjer passengers. They were no idle travelers. Each had a mission. Here and there men were star ing out of the windows with red eyes. Among them were tough-looking Hungar ians and Italians, who had lost friends near Nineveh. Many were weeping. Two of the passengers on the train were man and wife from Johnstown. The man was more or less self-possessed. The woman was anxious and tried hard to con trol her feelings. From every newcomer and possible source of information she sought news. "Ours is a big new brick house," said she, with a brave efiort, but with her lips trembling. "It is a three-story house and I don't think there is any troable, do you?" Without waiting for an answer she contin ued, with a sob : "There are my four chil dren in the house, and their nurse, and I guess father and mother will go over to tne house, don't you ? " In a few moments all those in the car knew the story of the pair, and many a pit ying glance wbs cast at them. Their house was among the first to go. RECOVERING THE BODIES. New Florence, Pa., June 1. The waters are now recediug here aj rapidly as they rose last night, and as the banks uncover the dead are showing up. Already nine dead bodies have been picked up within the limits of this borought since daylight. None of them have yet been recognized. Five of those found were women. One lady, probably 25 years old and rather handsome, had clasped in her arms a babe about 6 months old. The dead body of a young man was dis covered in the branches of a huge tree which had been carried down the stream. The body of another woman has just beeu discovered in the riyer here. Her foot was discovered above the surface of the water. A rope was fastened about it and it is now tied to a tree awaiting as sistance to land it The banks on both sides of tne river are crowded with anxious watchers, and with horrifying frequency their vigils are re warded by the discovery of a dead body. Within the last l.uii hour three floating bodies have been recovered at this point and hundreds of people from Johnstown and up-river towns are hurrying here in search of their friends and relatives who RAILROAD WORLD. j-SEE US BEFORE BUYING.

The shock threw her back onto the harrow but she raised up and tried to hold her brother-in-law up. The bolt hit him : on the side of the head and fractured the skull. It could be traced no farther down the body than to the hips. It struck no part ot the wagon. The deceased never knew what hurt him.

A party was organized ta pursue and kill the dangerous beast, and a most exciting chase followed. Finally the dog was overtaken and shot by M. H. Stine, who lives three miles northwest of Ozark.
