At that time everyone living below the ditch began to move out. The Strattpns moved their pigs and sows up the bluff, carried their fruit, meat and lard and everything but the heavy pieces upstairs and packed some clothing in case they had to get out in a hurry. They oven left the harnesses on the horses, things looked so bad. She says they stayed Close to the telephone for alarm in case the' levee broke on the big ditch. ' ' . No one slept much on Thursday night, ; 40,000 acres of farm land is under water up to 18-ft. deep. In some places you can just see the end of the telephone poles. Hundreds of men were putting up sand bags and watching to see if the ditch would be able to hold against all that water, :fout toward morning word .came, -that >ith,e .•/ sandbags - were holding: arid the';' water was falling.- "Everyone was somewhat relaxed at that news, but danger is not over yet, for fear of a gorge of ice.

Roger Campbell of Rockwell set a rat-trap in his basement. There is perhaps nothing unusual about that. However, when the trap caught a pole cat, Roger was hard put to figure out a way to liquidate the situation Witliojut making matters any worSe.

The process was speeded up when the "kitty" became angry and started to chew on the cotton wadding. Man's Best Friend, It has again been proven thtit man's best friend is a dog.
