Persons who watched the flood waters of the Missouri River last week, which threatened hundreds of acres of land along that uncertain stream in this county, have remarked at the unusually heavy load of sediment carried by the high water. This was no doubt due to the heavy local rains, which drained off of freshly cultivated land and carried an extra load of fresh dirt downstream. As a result, many low places, which were put out of use for the time being, got great fill of new dirt which will in later seasons make the ground exceptionally rich for farming operations.
