TROUBLE IN IOWA IS PAST
While the morning reports to the
mil road Indicate that throughout
Nebraska the rain baa ceased falling
and the weather has cleared, great
damage has been caused as a result
of the flood. Thla is particularly
true In tbe aouth part of the state.
The Monday report to the Northaest
im la to the effect that over an area of
ten to twenty miles In all direction? from
Superior, Saturday night anl Sunday
morning the precipitation n from five
to twelve Inchca. All low and bottom
land In Nuckolls, Thayer and Webster
rountles are submersed to a depth of
two te ten feet, completely destroying
iropa and drowning conalderabl live
took. In manjr tnatanees fermera and
sther dwellera on the low Innda saved
themselves, their families and their
property by moving to the hllla. The rain
seemed to be In the nature of a cloud
burst, and continued for pours.
South of Superior, some years ago, the
Northwestern built a line down to Web
ber, Ken., constructing a bridge over the
Republican liver. This bridge was two
tnlles south of Superior, and consisted
pf a structure of nine bents, each thir
teen feet In length. Afterward, both the
tna and the brIHi were leased to the
Bant Fe for a . terois of year, that
fnad belnf 0riif of getting Into Super
ior, though It did not went to build Into
Kebraska, as It did not want to comply
vltli certain conditions of the state law.
Brlaa-e Carried Away.
Sunday, following the flood, the Re
publican river rose fifteen feet epd car
ried the bridge away, turning the whole
valley Into a sea, six to eight miles wide
and from o to fifteen feet deep.
By reason of tbe Sunday flood, the
Dock Island has euatalned losses In ths
northern part of Kansas that will ap
proximate possible $100,000 and delay
traffic on the Qmaha-lenver line for
ptrhaps week or tea days.
Between Belleville and aVendla, the
bridge over the Republican liver, a
structure more than 1.000 fet long, ' was
lifted off the piling and carried away
down the stream, where It was com
pletely demolished. Another bridge on
the same stream, quite as long, between
Belleville and McFarUnd, ' was washed
sway and destroyed. For miles along the
Republican river. It le asserted that tbe
Rock Island grade has been washed to
the level of the surrounding country and
the road will have to be relullt before
It can be operated. In the meantime,
trains en the Omaha-Denver line will be
letoured over the Union Pacific,
Crops Vaitr Water.
Advices to the Roof Island local of.
tlf-ee Indicate that west of' Fatrbury and
Into Kansas for K0 relies or more the
whole country In under water from ths
rains of last week and that'about all of
the section of country from five to ten
tea miles wide, crops and practically all
destroyed. Over this stretch there are
miles of country submersed to a depth of
er.e to ten feet and in the low lands
there are numerous plsces where the
water le fifteen feet deep.
North of the Rock Island lines, while
the rain was heavy, apparently It did
not do any damage to speak of. It In
terfered with repair work on the Bur
lington, but when tt ceased work wts
returned and by tonight the Burlington
will get trains through to Denver over
Its south line. On all other lines In the
state the road Is In gqd condition and
trains are on schedule.
Treable aa Kansas Mae.
The Union Pacific had more trouble
with Its line down the Blue river sod on
aome of the lines In northe-n Kansas
but repair work Is proedln.f rau.C'y
and trains will be running within the
rest couple 'of days, providing there are
no more floods. On ths Union aclflc's
main line conjflors art bark to normal,
but there la considerable congestion due
to the fact that exposition travel Is heavy
and the train of the I lock Island, that
are being detoured ever the main line
and Into Denver.
East of the Missouri river' the railroads
are no longer experiencing any dif
ficulty en aooount of fliodo. Titers have
not Ixm.b any heavy re las within the last
forty eterht hours and all track trout 's
bae been reoslrsd.

the cadaverous one looking up at the

Mr. Mole referred the gentleman to the
public library, the Encyclopedia Brit

various other "likely" places where the
exact flgurea could be found. His vis
