The Burlington hopes to fix the railroad bridge near Red Onk which would enable traffic to come straight through. However the bridge is in extremely bad shape and at least 10 days will be required to repair the bridge BO that, any trains can come through at all. The Wabash railroad will not operate any trains for an indefinite length of time. According to E. G. Rels, district manager of the Northwestern Bell Telephone Co., the county's telephone wires, which have been carrying a terrific load the last three weeks, received a tremendous beating around the Malvern, Hastings and Silver City areas. However by Thursday the service was completely resumed, except for minor cases that were not reported earlier. The trouble In Glenwood was light but along Silver creek and the Nishna the flooding waters tore down many poles. The Red Oak-Glenwood toll line went out Sunday. A lino crew completed repair on it Wednesday and it was open again that night. Service to Randolph was completely Interrupted Monday night and that town had no phone connections to Mills county. Uy Tuesday noon service was resumed on a temporary circuit. In the west part of Malvern Tuesday one could pick up numerous stories of loss and destruction. At the C. A. Swanaon & Sons plant the flood found the plant ready. All livestock were moved to safety and although damage was done around the plant, It was an accumulation of small items rather than one large item. No water got into the plant nity building whore temporary shelter was offered in the basement. Typical of the stories received from the flood victims Is this one: John Allry reportrd that he had 22V4 inches of watrr In his house and three Inches of mud and silt. A comparison of the three floods can he seen by the account given to The Lfader by Mrs. Ed Earith. The Enrith home which Is located at a low spot directly across from the Wabash depot, was flooded all three times. The first time one foot of water came In, the second Hood brought an additional six or eight inches of water; this week's flood brought 2% or more feet of water Into the house. The loss at the Earith home was high as the flood water left the house practically ruined and the Earith clothes were for the most part destroyed. Even such residents as Nathan Moore, who didn't get any water In the house suffered extensive damage. At the Moore home the water completely filled the basement, bringing with It some four or five inches of mud. However, Moore's neighbors fared much •worse. Melvln Walston, Willis Campbell, Buck Dooley, James Swadley and the Goldsberrys, to name* a few, all hud water In their homes. Dooley had possibly the most water In th.o house, with about 2% feet, Wulston* had about two feet, Goldsbcrrys about six Inches and Swndleys, who escaped without water in the house in the previous floods, had about five or six inches. At Hastings the residents were once more cut off from the west half of the county, Families In the lower part of town retreated from the Nishna Botna for the third time. On the Bluegrass highway south and west of town the bridge was washed away and considerable debris was washed across the road into the fences.
