After the Scioto River lowlands were inundated during the 1913 flood, the imposing residence of the Newton Foster family near Omega was moved to higher ground where it is presently located. This picture was taken during the moving but workers are not identified. (From the collection of the late A. S. Keechle, Waverly) 14 Feb. 1979 Waverly Watchman
When the house was located down by the river they had a team of horses hitched to the hitchen post by the house and the 1913 flood came through so quickly they were unable to get the hoses moved in time and they drowned.
This house was raised somewhere around 130' to the top of a hill that is 700'
above sea level from down near the Scioto river with an altitude of around 570'.
What they did was to level a place on the hill side, jack the house up to a
certain height then pull it over on to the flat area and then jack it up again
and repeat the process until they got it to the top of the hill. Note the
pictures shows the house to be jacked up about 3 men high. It would appear the
process had to be done 8 or 9 times if they jacked it up to the height we see in
the picture each time. I am told the family continued to live in the house
during the moving process and not a picture fell off the wall. I am also told a
mule was used to winch the house onto the flat places. The Foster house sets on
the hill that is now reached by a drive way that is across from where Straight
Creek road comes up to Rt. 335. (39 7.84'N 82 53.74'W)

Fire on Several Hundred Acres On Wilson Run Friday
Fire Started On Vallery Farm And Spread Rapidly Over 500 Acres.
------A spectacular and dangerous fire that destroyed much timber and threatened the lives of fire fighters, raged across 200 or 300 acres of land in Pike county Friday from 10:30 in the morning until 5:30 in the afternoon,.
The fire started on the Vallery farm on Wilson Run when a meadow was being burned over and the fire got beyond control. It soon spread to a neighboring woods where the long drought had made the trees ready fuel for the oncoming flames, sending the leaves high into the air and burning the trunks.
The fire was sighted at the Fire Outlook Tower of the Forest Reserve on the Scioto Trail on the Chillicothe Pike and men equipped with forest fire tools were sent to the scene of the fire immediately. The forest reserve near Portsmouth was notified and fire fighter were sent from there. These with volunteers numbered about two hundred who fought bravely to quail the fire which threatened to spread over a much wider territory.
Several times men were trapped and were freed from their perilous position only by the concentrated efforts of the other fighters.
The excessive heat made it doubly dangerous for the men at work, some of whom were almost prostrated by the smoke.
Workers were kept on guard all night. The Emory and Higby farms in Ross county were over run by the flames. It is estimated that the damage to timber will run up to several hundred dollars.
Henry Hatfield, Wilson Run merchant and a force of men hauled water from Mr. Hatfield's farm in machines and wagons to the fire fighters and its use was effective in checking the fire.

Relieve and old Colored Couple of all their Savings
A LARGE SUM SECURED
By a Bold Midnight Crime Committed near Omega
HOME TALENT SUSPECTED
The old couple, both of whom are infirm with age and well nigh helpless from disease, live alone in a rather secluded neighborhood on Mutton run. about three miles east of Omega. Hanson was a soldier, having served with a colored regiment in the Civil war, for which service he now draws a pension of $50.00 per month. As the wants of himself and wife are not many, living as they do, the greater part oh this pension money was laid by and together with back pay received some time ago, amounted to a considerable sum.
Friday morning about 1 o'clock the old people were aroused by two masked men who demanded admittance, one claimed to be the sheriff of Ross county in search of a murder. Upon their promise of that no harm should be done they were admitted. After making a through search of the room and finding nothing they demanded the key to the old man's trunk wherein the money was concealed and by threats force him to give it up. They money was found and deliberately counted by the robbers, who under the pretense that their horse needed attention, left the cabin with its helpless inmates and made their escape.
Just how much money was secured by the robbers is not positively known, but it is believed to have been larger than was at first reported, It is thought that the trunk contained between two and three thousand dollars, all of which was taken. Johnson had promised his advisors a number of times to have his money placed in the bank, but failed to do so, saying that he felt no fear of robbers.
The authorities are quietly working on the case, though definite clues have, so far, been rather difficult to obtain. From the circumstances of the crime it seems evident that it was committed by persons familiar with the surroundings and habits of the victims. The matter will be closely investigated and some sensational developments are expected.

Many complaints are coming in that relief clients are refusing the jobs offered to them by farmers and other people. The Relief Administration hereby serves notice that if any relief client refuses a job, no matter how small or for how short a time, he will be cut off the relief immediately. It is not the intention of the Relief Administration that people refuse jobs and thereby remain on the relief. The client who attempts to secure as much work as possible will be given better consideration than if he refuses to work. Persons wishing to employ labor and who have trouble in hiring people will contact either the Relief office or the road foreman in the respective townships. The road foreman will be glad to refer relief clients to jobs that are open. The following is a list of the road foremen in the townships:

While Rev. George Maple and wide, of Jackson township, were enroute to church on Sunday morning they claim that two colored men stopped their machine and made an attack upon them with a hammer. Rev. Maple cast aside his ministerial dignity and knocked one of the men down and the other one made his escape Sheriff Ernest Dowdle and Deputy William Anderson were called to the scene of the trouble and arrested one of the colored men who was connected with the trouble. He gave his name as Arthur Nelson and his home at Columbus. He will be arraigned later before Squire T. A. Brown on a charge of assault and battery. Other arrests will probably follow as officers have now learned the identity of the other assailant.
