The suspension Bridge fanning the River Here was sgt ii lined with Spectator. Suddenly a great cake of Ico grounded on a reel half a tile below the bring and in a few minutes Buu Dreda of other ice blocks were Pilot upon it forming a dam. The writer at once began to get Back until it found channels on each Side of the obstacle but these Wero so shallow that the ice would not pose and it began to Stop. The unbroken ice below helped who dam thus formed against the pressure from above. Still the great mass of ice Cuzo Rushing on piling higher and higher until it touched the under timbers of the Bridge Twenty two feet strove the water level making it quiver like an Sanen Leaf while the ally Igried spectators fled for their lives. At ibis moment fortunately it stopped rising simply because there was no Moro ice to pile on to it a. This probably saved Tho Brigo and the town which however did not escape with out damage. A dozen Small we Xian tenement Hossee standing next to the River below the Railroad embankment were shoved from their foundations Ami their lower doors flooded Tfir inmates hurriedly leaving tam iture and everything else a behind in their Effort to escape. A Small Mill Stream swollen with rain which enters the River near then Pei Ion Bridge being blocked up with ice at Isa Mouth Seback overflowed its Banks and inundated the Gas works and the cellars and lower floor of Many dwellings. For a time the town was deprived of a Light and almost a panic prevailed Tor a Day or two among those living on the Low grounds.

But the weather changed to colder and in a Short time it appeared that fur four Miles the River had disappeared and no one knew whether it hed again found it old bed or whether it was trickling through the great mass of ice in a multitude of different channels. An examination however Rood convinced the chief Engineer of the Krie Railroad that the River was forcing its was by different Channel which would eventually become United into one. But until that occurred nothing could be done and so for a week the Glacier Lay undisturbed settling every Day More firmly Down into the bed of to River. On bunday March 7.
