The moss accumulated here until It had attained a
height of over thirty feet, covering the tracks of
Die Columbia and Tort Deposit ltullroad Company,
wbca tun parallel with the rlter. Its bridge,
which sans the river bctwern Columbia and
W rlghtevlllc, was also seriously dimaged by the
toe, which came down In such a volume as to atrlke
the bottom of the bridge. (nepan was thrown

Columbia and Tort Deposit Uallroad have been an.
nulled for the present.
A movement ot the body of Ice opposite Fort De
