Neve Been llennl Of.
The. thrilling rescue of hla home from
the Missouri river by a farmer named
Hanson, north of Florence, It nothing be
side tho fight he Is now making to keep
the river from again taking tho house
away from him. His barn, which the
river washed away, has never been heard
of. Hanson had a 2W-acre farm, Includ
ing a grove of big trees, two to four feet
In diameter, on the first of May this year.
Today he has not an acre, the river hav
ing taken It all.
When the river took his house and barn,
the house lodged on a sandbar, and by
the aid of horses he was able to get It
back to the foot of the big bluff along
which runs the river road. Now the
river Is washing away the road at the
foot of the bluff. To save his house he
will either have to tear It to pieces or
raise It up on the bank to the height of
twenty or thirty feet, a difficult under
taking with the river under the house.
Tho river has also taken about forty acres
of the Jenson farm and ten to
i twenty acres of tho Snodderly farm.
Across the river the Paxton and Olm
sted farms have lost considerable land
that was planted to crops..
