Cole's Feed Store CH DISTRESS * IN FLOOD AREA Ernest Gilbert Returns From Trip fo Indian and Reports Donations Were Thankfully Received. Ernest Gilbert of the Hammond district has returned from New Al- i.Jiy, Indiana, where his load of supplies was consigned. He relates many unusual experiences among the people of that locality. After leaving Indianapolis he began to notice debris along- the creek banks, show-- ing that the countryside even that far north had had more than their usual amount of rainfall. Traveling on trunk line 31 they found guards stationed at various points where it was necessary to detour because water was over the road. Once Mr. Gilbert got out-"6f his truck and looked ahead. Water was only a few feet from the crossbars of the telephone poles. He was told to unload in Hanover, a small town of about 500 people, and was directed to a school house which was the central distribution point; in fact, two school houses •were being used—in one the clothing was unpacked and in the other the food. He saw the .potatoes which went in his truck eagerly taken in small pans, sacks, containers of any description. Smiling faces told of how rare and highly prized the common potato had come to be. Napoleon, Indiana, another town through which he passed, had taken in 50 refugees. They slept in one church and were fed in another. Tlie last 17 of these refugees had bep-a, transferred the morning Mr. Gilbert arrived. Everywhere there was fiMid, mud, clay mud- about six inches deep. This made transportation difficult. As he stood in. the school yard' looking at the swirling water not5 far away Mr. Gilbert heard one of the natives say,-"You wouldn't think that we had a nice resort along that river, would you?"
