THE AUGUSTA HERALD
A View of Augusta's Recent Flood
Published in a Northern Paper
The following article is a reprint from
the Balntree <Mass > Observer and Re

I** a resident of Augusta and wrote the
account of the freahet to her former
home. It is an interesting account of a
Wednesday, AUg. 26, 1908.
Hear Mr. Editor:
'Phis is a memorable day with us. In
this fair Southern elty. and at thin time,
two oclofk p. m.. this grandma with
her brood of five grand-children has tak
en refuge Jn the upfW *tory to escape
the raging water below stAlrs. Alasl
after tugging everything that our
strength proved equal to, we had to !
leave piano, roll-top dexk, bookcase,
writing desk, sideboard, gas stove and
rung*- to their sad fate. The “calico
cat," and the white wyandotte hen tpet
and beauty that -he |s> are sharing our
fortune*, whatever they may be.
At the present hour, four o’clock P.
M . there is a torrent of muddy water
sweeping through the lower rooms, tak
ing wall paper and pl4*iering as It goes,
creeping bito cupboard and closets,
climbing up the staircase, step by step,
as l hough rying to reach us. in our safe
retreat. Outside, the fan**y iron fenee
and hitching post have long since dis
appeared from view, and only a six-foot
er citn keep his head above water.
Ten o’clock P. M., with a depth of
six feet and still rising sioVlv, my
greatest apprehension is. lest the house
foundations cannot withstand the eon
f-tant buffeting and may give way. Even
Into this fear comes the sweet refrain, [
“His eye l - on the sparrow and I know t
he watches me.’’ Without. there is
darkness profound, within, we have food
and drink, light and comfort.
The “calico cat" purrs contentedly be
fore the oil heater whereon the tea ket
tle sings, for there must he a cig> of
hot stuff to cheer the father as he comes
from tin toil of this weary day. Just
hers he comes, drenched to the skin,
but safe at home, "the dearest spot on
earth." In order to avail himself of the
only conveyance possible, (a boat) he
had to pay the boatman $2.50 for one
and one half miles travel.
Thursday morning. 27th. The angry
Havannph still rages and roars but inch
by Inch is slowly receding, bringing to

surety that, the promise centuries
ago, still holds: “The waters shall no
more rover the fare of the earth.” “Seed
time and harvest shall not fall.”
Bonts ply back and forth carrying
strange cargoes; In one, I noticed two
brown hens, apparently quite satisfied
with this new mode of travel, In spite
of all the watery surroundings. Some
are loaded with all worts of household
goods. Others with men, women and
children nil seeking dry land and home.
AM through the night we heard cries
for help”—a boat! a boat! oh-h-h boat
man come to our help,” distressing as It
was, we could not distinguish anything
through the murky darkness. With the
morning light, two men were found hi
the tree tops a short distance away.
They had spent the entire night clinging
to the branches, for dear life.

whole city is without water, gas, electric

night extremely perilous, yet the sun still

Citizens In the neighborhood of the
Perkins lot on Kollock street signed
a petition a few days ago, condemn

A case was made against the River

CUMBERLAND, MD—Farmers ano
laborers from three states, Penna, West
Virginia, and Maryland were addressed
here by Wm. J. Bryan today and tonight.
The first speech was in the afternoon
to the farmers, and the. second princi
pally to laboring men, largely miners. In
both instances, the democratic candidate
reiterated his views concerning Mr. Taft
ana his attitude toward the republican
platform. The tariff, trusts, publicity of
campaign contributions, guaranty of
hank deposits and the labor questions,
were discussed at length, Mr. Bryan’s
remarks being substantially those de
livered yesterday in his speeches in Ohio
and at Wheeling, West Va.
The afternoon speech was made under
a blitzing sun whose rays beat pitilessly
down upon the speaker and the great
crowd which stood in the city hall plaza,
to hear him. A woman directly in front
of the platform was overcome by the
heat. Mr. Bryan observing her illness,
suspended his remarks and waited until
she had been taken away before resum

Keating. John Brophy, and other promi
nent democrats of the state. A program
of entertainment had been provideu and

was taken on a long automobile ride

try. No speech making was Indulged in
on the trip hut on the return Mr. Bryan
held a reception on the porch of the
hotel. The arrangements for his visit
also included an opprtunity to rest up
from his ardous work of the week. Mr.
Bryan gladly availed himself of this part
of the program and slept for a couple
of hours. The largest gathering was to
night when the democratic candidate in
talking to the laboring men, pointed out
what the Denver convention had done
for them in promising remedial legisla
tion affecting the laboring man’s status.
His remarks tvere roundly cheered. Mr.
Bryan, accompained by democratic na
tional committeemen John T. McGraw
of West Virginia; Former Governor Jen
