Searching by townships in New Search of 1880 Census


Am I missing something?
I am trying to search the 1880 census for entries in Prairie Township, Hancock County, Illinois, using the new search.
I can't seem to narrow my search down to just that township in the new search. Am I missing something?
I can use the old search to do a search based upon township, which I really like and which in many cases is necessary.
Just not convinced the place name "thing" they are using is all that it is cracked up to be although the "search adjacent counties" I like.
Found the ad running on the Ancestry.com site to be particularly ironic.
