This picture, will be especially val uable to the levee cause as it shows conditions impossible to de( ribe. One of the pietuics shown 400 feet of eurth gradually slipping into the' Mississippi river opposite Helena, Ark., another shows the water beat ing the levees from the tops of trees as it rushed through the crevasse at Heulah, Mihs; another gives a view of a big force of men at work near Helena, Ark; sinking mattresses to prevent further raving. The manner in nhich the big net works are sunk near the levees and on the banks of the river are shown most cleverly. Mr. Fox, in a few dys, will have a film made showing actus levee con struction work. This will serve to il lustrate to the congressmen from the North, Kast and West the eflective neH of levees as a flood preventive.
