A map drawn by Flora (Light) Acre, showing the town of Russell Spring, the Smoky Hill River, creeks, and the Scott City Northern Railroad of Township 13 South, Range 35 West (part of Russell Springs township), Logan County. Flora also includes an essay about the township's history. She focuses on the birth of the county, the town of Russell Springs and the construction of a dam. This is one of several maps drawn by school children for a contest organized by Judge J. C. Ruppenthal of Russell, Kansas. The maps were to meet a "requirement of presenting historical data, together with excellence and accuracy of drawing." This submission won the first prize of $3 in the 1912 map contest.
