With the water rising more slower than at any lime in the recent high water stage, engineers who are watching Big Lake believe that the worst ilang°r is over as to the lake overflowing. There was a 12- inch rise in the past 2-1 hours which brought the water within 13 | inches of the floors of the highway and railroad bridges which span' the lake 12 miles west of tills city. The only water over Ihe railroad Is where the track is low in the ricugh west of the lake but this has not hampered any of Ihe trains which are miming on schedule time. The electric train has been replaced by a steam locomotive. Surface wafer is over the highway at points farther west, according to reports from Leachville, which is delaying traffic. What effect last night's rain will have upon the speed of the rise •s undetermined. While the water is up to the danger point, en- liineers say that all Ihe levees are In good condition and will hold as long as the flood is at Its crest. In a telephone call to Russell Pankey. mayor of Kcnnett, he stated that that city is in no danger from high water and that the ditches which empty into Big Lake seem to be taking care of the overflow water.
