The Snowdlgger and the Flood Col
Alba Haywood came down from San
Benito Saturday saying that if he
felt any better he would think some
thing was wrong. In talking of the
recent high water, he told of an old
"snowdigger" to whom he was show
ing the great head gates of the San
Benito Canal just at the time when
the water was highest. The old gentle
man was painting a melancholy word
picture of what the river would do if
it rose two feet more.
"But," said the Col. "the records
show that it has never risen more
than six- inches higher."
"That may be," was the reply, "but
are you certain that the river knows
its record"?
