Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ...houses were fine residences. Hon. H. Q. Houghton, who was chairman of the Relief Committee, estimated that the entire personal loss was $30,000. The Relief Committee used $4,500 in replacing, remodeling, and refurnishing the houses. Some kind of a house was replaced in the place of each one that had been moved by the flood waters, with four exceptions. The families of these four showed no interest or disposition to help, and were passed by. The B. & O. R. R. Co. lost about one and one-half miles of grade and track at Shoals and some two miles below. The replacing of this grade and track cost not less than $10,000. The grade was rebuilt in a veritable levee across. the old valley in the eastern part of Shoals, ready to be washed out again by the next flood approximating the recent one. I The entire value of all that was lost within the White River region of Martin County is estimated at $40,300. This includes the estimated $30,000 loss to the inhabitants for whom $4,500 was spent in replacing their structures. But since the $30,000 loss is the ultimate loss, these figures are counted. Lawrence county was far from being fortunate in the way of losses to county and railroad structures. The county bridge at Rivervale was replaced at a cost of $16,484. The span added to the south side of the bridge below Bedford on the Bedford and Mitchell pike cost $4,250. The bridge, which was carried fifty feet up stream by the rapid rising back waters, about one-half mile from the river up Guthrie Creek, cost $3,305. The Salt Creek bridge cost $5,150. The cost to the county in the way of road repair on account of loss due to the flood was about $3,000. The total expenditure of the county itself, therefore, was $32,190.
