WATER IIELOW FLOOD STAtiE.
The river went slightly lelow a stage
of 4. feet Sunny on the Cairo guage,
and Monday the outfit used at Mile
Seven. K-elfoot I-vee, was disposed of
and the long fight there completely ov
er. The Steamer Wynoka. a govern
ment lat. arrival there Monday even
ing from Memphis and took in charge
the government quarter loat. whieh
she carried back to Memphis. This
juarter l-oat was used to house the
ltKr during the fight there. With the
wafer down now below the foot or base
of the levee, the graveness of the situ
ation can le fully appreciated. For
nearly half a mile the river bunk had
caved o(T to the bse of the k-v-e and at
two place U-youd the crefit of . the
levee, with a narrow strip left at one
of these places, each place leing alout
TMi to titt feet long. Before they finished
the work there, they had built a ban-
jijuefte the entire distance of the caving.
Mr. Hufrstetter. the government engr
neer xent here by Major Kerr, of Mem
phis. hafi.lU-d the situation well and
des-rves much credit for pushing the
tight a he did. C. T. 15nduraut. who
built most of the ICeelfoot levee wa on
the job day and nfitht for many days,
bringing in from Trimble. Tcnn., his
construction equipment of iuuW-s and
scrapers, re-inforclng the Itoger levee
equipment there, the metntier of the
Ivee Hoard and every planter of this
e-Tion giving their time and labor to
the hard work there. It Is thought by
the time the river reaches the sand
strata Uyond the Jevee that the caring
will le much greater, and is now only
a matter of a short tiuie until the en
tire part of the old levee will cave off.
Hut la-fore another year rolls around,
or lwfore another floor, the new loop
should 1 finished and. at least, the
planters won't face the propition of
caving banks and caving levee again.
The right there was the hardest ever
put up and the longest, but also It might
Ik added, that the wdge of two mouths'
water was the longest ever known.
