From parlies residing in Pa
cific Junction it was learned yes
terday that the fanners' dike
alung the river near Hinton Sta
tion, the first stop north of the
Junction on the K. C, broke Sun
day night, letting a large volume
of water in on the bottom, and a
rather swift current has since
been running through west of the
Junction, the water reaching to
the village limits.
For over a week the farmers
and all of the men they could get
at the Junction have been doing
all they could to save the dike and
prevent the water from going
through thai way. Men slept
righl on Ihe job, a school house
near there being used as head
quarters, where meals were served
to (he workkmen; a telephone was
put in and every facility far aiding
the men was put to work. The
water has run down in Ihe main
channel two and a half feel, and
the worst of the trouble is be
lieved to be past.
