Daughter of J. 0. Battcy, of Salem,
Writes Him Some Little Details
of the Big Storm.
The following letter taken from the
Decorali Republican, Iowa, was written
by Mrs. Edna Battey Holmes, a daugh
ter of Mr. Z. C. Battey, of this city,
giving her experience in the Paduca
1'adueah, Ky., April 10, 1013.
Your most welcome letter came yes
terday and I was truly glad to got it
as we hare had no mail since the water
came up but I believe most of the
trains are running now. I hardly know
whore to begin in describing to you
what we have been through, but it has
been a gieat experience and one I do
Jiot care to repeat.
To begin with, I had some sort of a
nervous spell the first of March when
I could neither sleep nor eat and could
lardly walk. I just lay around and I
ouia naruiy raise my bands to my
head, though I had neither an ache nor
a pain. Well, just when we all thought
I was nearly done for, the flood warn
jngs began to be issued and we were
told to get ready for the greatest flood
Paducah had ever known. Of course, the
t'ity official ridiculed the idea and the
papers took the ground that Ta
dueah was "high and dry and un
afraid," as tho News-Democrat ex
pressed it. Mr. Holmes said it would
iut hurt us, but Jlury had better move
in, which she did, and put tho cows
across the street, and for a few days
we thought wo wero all right. Of
course. I began to brnco up at once; all
1 needed probably was a little exercise
Then the water began to come, and I
lave never seen such an awe-inspiring
spectacle. It just rolled in and in,
closer and closer and covered tho alley
and Mary 's fences and then her stables,
caught our lower chicken houses and
kept a coming. Then last Monday af
ternoon over a weok ago, Mr. Holmes
came home about 3 o'clock to toll us to
liustlo things upstairs as the greatest
volume of water ever seen here would
strike that night. 'Ho brought a lot of
juen and put everything up on scaffolds
and carried all the lighter things up
stairs. We worked all night and then

hardly keep my feet. Finally I waded
up to Uncle Jim Gray's and hired his
lot to put them iu, carried them all
there ami the next day they were sur
rounded by water, but had a little dry
place to stand aud have been there ever
May 13.
I have complained of many things, but
now I;think of the floor will just be
dry I will be perfectly happy. One day
when I was wading to the" drv lot
through the alley with a large fat hen
in each arm, Mrs. Bell came out aud

Paducah from being washed out of ex- ' 1
istbnee. When you see any statement
in the papers that Paducah was not in
jured, it is just plain lies and I would
like to destroy the News-Democrat and
the Sun for their misrepresentations.
They have tried to prevent any reports
of the flood getting out and the city
council forbade any photographs being
taken or any telegrams being sent out
and all such nonsense.
The actual, truth is that there are
thousands of homeless people in Padu
cah and many hungry ones. There are
hundreds of families in the school hous
es and factories. Business, of course,
has been at a standstill as it was im
possible for people to shop or for things
to be delivered. The most of the whole
sale houses are under water and there
are hundreds of founds of eatables
washed out and floating on the streets.
The water is falling a little now and
is off our floors, but just level with the
second Btep of our porch. When it was
deepest, it was just below my shoulders'
at our back door. We have had plonty
to eat, tut nothing fresh, of courso, as
there was no plaeo to buy any, though
Mr. Holmes made several foraging ex
peditious in his boat. Tho water plant
has been operated right along and Mr.
Holmes had worked day and night. Ono
of the water company owners told him
benevolently that he deserved great
credit, and Mr. Holmes told him it was
not credit he wanted, but cash.
I don 't know whether I can give you
any idea of the depth of the water ex
cept by Baying that row boats came
right into our house and tied to our
stair post, that gasoline launches were
running all over town and that steam-
