Henry S. Bass Brings Suit Against
Milton Booher, Adjoining
Landowner.
------------
          Henry S. Bass  of Marion township, has brought suit in the circuit court against  Milton Booher,  who owns land adjoining that of Bass.  The suit is for four thousand dollars and is based upon an alleged obstruction of a waterway.
          According to the complaint there is on the land of the defendant a ravine thru which flows a natural stream, fed by springs and drainage.  This stream is wholly on the land of Booher.  It is alleged that by logs and dirt he has obstructed the waterway causing the water to flow over the land of the plaintiff, damaging crops and rendering the land unfit for the purposes of tillage.  It is also alleged that this action of the defendant has caused the land of the plaintiff to deteriorate in value from its former value of one hundred dollars per acre to a value of fifty dollars an acre.  Hord & Adams and Elmer Bassett apper for the plaintiff.
