From The Santa Fe New Mexican:

May 11, 1914: Fort Sumner — Several enterprising individuals reaped quite a harvest last week, a day or two after the flood, gathering stuff from the drift left when the water receded from the overflow between town and the old fort. The loot is listed by the “Review” as follows: Considerable valuable lumber, a five-gallon can of coal oil, several cans of tomatoes, fence posts, etc., were among the spoils. A section of fence — posts and tangled wire, with a pair of old trousers caught on the wire — is supposed to have come from Santa Rosa. During the day a house was seen going down stream; also a horse and buggy. Dead rabbits, gophers, rats and mice were seen everywhere; also a few dead birds.
