Water Stretches for Miles.

GUNDAGAI, Thursday. —The greatest     flood at Gundagai for 34 years is causing   immense damage. The flood water rose

17ft. in 24 hours, and the river is 36ft. above its summer level. A number of people had to be rescued in boats. Nearly   all the soldier settlers' maize crops have   been ruined. all low-lying houses are   inundated, and great damage has been done in the town. Haystacks and dead stock are     now floating down the stream. The flood water stretches for miles; the water is   running over the wall at Burrinjuck, and   the village of Jugiong is inundated.  

The flood receded six inches this after- noon. Stacks of hay, dead sheep, and fur- niture are still floating down the stream.

At the freezer works there is £2,000   worth of rabbits under water. Another case of drowning has been reported, the victim being Mr. Walter Kerr, employed

at Tenandra Station.
