B PAGE EIGHT THE ARLINGTON TIMES, ARLINGTON, WASHINGTON, THURSDAY, E . 15, 1951. Mrs. Itorace Enyeart, The high water caused some damage and a lot of inconve- nience to many. The Sauk Riv- er did more damage on the town side, cutting away a con- siderable amount of the John Lewis, Sr., farm. Fred Blanton also lost some land. The Fred Rensink farm was under water. On the Prairie side, Morris Long lost some land and Fin Barker s house was surrounded by'water. Mel Gartner and family were all packed to move out of their home when the water began to ~ede. ' The Sauk River Lumber com- pany bridge went out between 10 and 12 o'clock Friday night• Earlier in the evening, a log jam was blasted and the bridge was cabled to the bank, in an effort to save it. However, when the Sauk River runs wild, there's not much can be done to control it. The most of the bridge on the town side was torn loose, with an estimated 90% loss. The huge stringers under the bridge were found, hung up in the brush along the~ bank, not far from where the bridge once stood. The bridge will be rebuilt soon, in the same location about one-half mile from town, up- stream. Some of the residents on high- er ground got a little water also.
