I Waterloo, April 29. 1S75.
Me. EDrtOR: Onf usually quteC.towu
was this morning the scene of quite an ex
citement. About eIock laud o1oesSauu
men running from the mill drew the atten
tion of all to the river, where two men o ho
bad gone over the dam, were seen stand
ing waist deep in the water, just above the
falls. Four men, Jim Stearns, Frank
Davidson, AViu. buinnKirs . jAipbrose
Privit- were bringing a raift of logs to the
. tnlll, when' at the , proper ..point, as they
supposed, two of them left the raft and
weut to the shore in a skilt holdimr tha
end of a rope fastened to the raft, with '
which to snub it and swing it into the race.
But ky soine htishap tliey iao,6te'1!t13e',
too far out, leaving barely rope enough, t,
reach the shore; and after holding to it a
his grip on it, and the raft moved directly
toward tlie dam. Wfieir It passed wer,

about mid-deep, waiting for help. 'ITie
