1884 FLOOD DIO
SOME DAMAGE HERE
Gleanings From an Issue
of the Ceredo Enterprise
i of 1884.
The following relative to the
1884 Hood is taken from the Ceredc
Enterprise, Feb. 1ft, 18S4:
Darkness settled down on tbo
stricken town with the water still
rising at the rate of about an inch
an hour, which it continued to do
until ten o’clock Tuesday when
anger was assuaged, and the great
river, grand even clothed in its ter
riblc inajestv. rented as if contem
plating the fear and awe it had in
spired and the ruin it had wrought.
Acctirateiueasureinents on Twelve
Pole bar at the hour the highest
point was reached, showed 03 feet
above the low water of last Septem
ber and 0 feet 7 inches above the
high water of 1883. Marks on a
building still standing near A. C.
Handley’s show the great tloo 1 of
1832 was not as high by 5 feet and
4 inches. Sixty-one buildings were
snbmerged in Cereuo when the
crisis was reached.
The condition of nibiiy families
now rendered homeless was such as
to ask for aid fiom some source. *
* * In the meantime the Relief
^k “ Boat Chesapeake with supplies from
f the Ohio Stale Relief Fund, touched
here and ofltred such assistance as
■was necessary to relieve immediate
waut. Three hundred rations were
accepted, and since, the Govern
ment Relief Boat Katy Stoekdale
left supplies of } ro\i-ions, clothing,
bedding, etc , so that there s ems
to be no i turned'ale or even remote
danger of suffering.

GouqUs and Consumption.
Coughs und colds, when neglected,
always lead to serious trouble of the
lungs. The wisent thing to do when
you have a cold that tronbles you is to
get a bottle of Dr. King’s New Discovery.
You will get relief from the first dose,
and finally the cough will disappear.
O. H. Brown, of Mnscadine, Ala.,
writes: “My wife was down in bed
with an obstinate cough, and I honestly
tsjlieve had it not been for Dr. King's
New Discovery , she would not be living
to day.” Known for forty-three years
as the best remedy for conghs and oolds.
Price 50c and .00. Recommended bj
the Bloss Drug Btore,Oeredo, and R. Ney
Williams’, Kenova.
