BULLARD CREEK A
Prompt Action and Hard Work, only, kept
Waters in Flume and Prevented Flood.
Lakcvicw and (loose Lake valley have experienced the
heaviest rains the ast week that ever visited this section,
at least within the past six years, .as is shown by the
weather report kept on file in this office.
The first four days of February .''.15 inehes of water j
fell, a tremendous precipitation for this country.
On Sunday Milliard creek began to rise, and by night
it was ncccssarv to watch the head of the larire flume to

creek was a vounr river. Stores find bank and nearlv
the canyon. A row of men stood in the creek half to their
waists with rakes to keep logs and brush from entering
the Hume and a row of workers on either side and at the
intake of the flume kept it open, while others raised the
dam two feet higher clear acru.s the canyon -with sacks of
dirt and plank. I'rompt action and hard work prevented
a repetition of the flood of three years ago, when deep
channels were washed into the streets and cellars filled
with writer. Water raised in several cellars as it was, but
it w.as the seepage from the hill, and some merchanise was
damaged Some feared land slides, which would have oc
curred, no doubt, were it not for, the fact that the hill
above is almost a solid rock. Ocher small canyons termi

water into the streets which
dark Mondav night, however, had ceased and the water
subsided. The crisis had passed, and evcr3'one plodded
homeward, tired and worn out, and the next day enjoyed
(?) the soreness and stiffness resultant of a hard day's
work in the rain and ice water.
Coffee ami sandwitehes were served at the scene of ac
tion, which, alone, made the task of successfully combat
ting the mad waters at all tolerable.
The CounCry Newspap-ir"
Tho following woida from Clarence
. Edwards, chief of tho publicity
bureau of tho California Promotion
Committee, before tho Colusa JCouuty
Chamber of Commerce at Woodlaud,
are well worth serious attention, as
there is a w hole lot of truth in them ;
"It is one of the rare things in life
to huvo silent, unostentatious work
appreciated aud commended. It is
not only tho work of the Chamber of
Commerce that counts, but there is
another factor in the upbuilding of
a community that is a mighty power,
but which, as a rule, is derded and
almost scorned. 1 mean the local
newspaper, and nothing is as little
apprccnted. There never was a new
paer, no matter how insignificant,
that did not do more for its commu
nity than the community did for the
It is uot only in the matter of giv
ing news to the home people that the
l'K'al newspaper benefits a commuuty.
Every issue curries out to the world
the message of progress of the com
munity. I never knew a man yet who
coutompluted a change of location
that did not send lor the uewspaper
of tho new place. He does uot mere
ly read the news contained thereiu,
but examines tho advertisements to
see what kind of a business communi
ty it Is. He reads all the Ideas that
aro between the lines as well as those
plain to be seen. I want to repeat
hero, aud If possible to emphasize it,
that there is uo better medium for
exploiting the resources of a country
thuu a county newspaper, aud you will
do well to reoognlze this fact aud see
to it that your papers are so well
cared for that they will constantly
stiive to show the world what a tine
community they do business in."

There has been an unprecedented
amount of precipitation during the
, three mouths past. From the 2Mb
ilay of October, when the fall rains
set iu, up to Tuesday evening, Feb;.
5th 12. 10 inches of water has fallen,
which breaks all past records, 16.93
inches being the average annual rain
fall for the past five years. However,
in 1900, which includes the precipita
tion for the fore part of this record-
breaking season, the precipitation was
19.48 inches. If the precipitation is
even no greater from now till the 29th
of October thun that of the same per
iod lust year, covering the time from
Feb. 15 to Oct. 29, when we begin
figuring for the pust winters' precipi
tation, the annual rainfall for this
season, ending next October 29th,
will be 21.57 inches.
It is more than liaely, however, that
the amount of rain from now till next
Octooer will be much more than the
same period last year, as the proceed
ing period from October 29 to Feb. 5,
exceeds that of the previous year by
5.00 inches, nearly double. So that
will be cafe to figure the precipitation
for the year ending October, 1907 at
close to 25 inches.
