has had in a long while. Last week
Friday the big gorge so much talked
of abjve Sioux City broke and the wa

Nebraska side, and almost destroyed
"Dakota" in Si b., and Vermillion in
Dak. Rushing down to Omaha, the
riprap work was broken on Saturday
and the floods poured over into the
smelting works, through the V. P ma
chine shops, and floated the lumber
and other loose material down the
Mo. Iler's distillery was closed and
the cattle feeding there swam to shore.
Two lives were lost at the Smelting
works. The river reached the highest

reaching to the steps of the U. P.
transfer depot and Hotel and cutting
off communication with the U. P.
bridge east of the transfer house.
All trains from the east were held
there. The U. P. went out without
her western connections Monday.
Tuesday a pontoon bridge of flat cars
was m;.de and all baggage paeked
across, the passengers walking over.
The K. C track between Pacific Junc
