Mr. Oscar Britt and another young man attempted to cross Skaggs Creek at the Boyter grist mill beyond Temple Hill, a few days ago, when the water was high. One mule in the wagon, was the kind that lays sown when in deep water, and this he did in this case. The result was that the wagon and team, together with the young men were washed downstream, and that none were drowned was almost a miracle. All were rescued some distance downstream, except that only part of the wagon was saved. Most of the load, including a steam engine, was lost.
