The water poureaunrestrained through
the Iymelia crevases, now over a half
mile in width. After a vain attempt to
close the break was made, the planters
found a strong fight awaited them to
hold back the water encroaching upon
their fields. Protection levees were built
where none existed and expensive pump
ing machinery installed in haste. The
eter, however, is well up against the
1884 levees and the Columbia planta
tion is still holding out fairly well. The
protection levees on Evergreen and Car
rod plantations were abandoned in the
rear and moved nearer in.
There hundreds of acres of splendid
ane, eorn and rice were given up to the
flood. Ohureh Place, MNaie and Gold
Mine levees are intact, the pumps work
ing night and day to relieve the field of
ater freeom rain andepepage.
Only a small ,fraion of the acreage
under caltivation will be saved on these,
