Great interest is shown in Libby
by hundreds of people who go down
to the river bridge each day to
watch the swollen waters roar past.
A huge raft of pulp wood from a
Canadian mill pond started down
stream Monday, and is said to have
passed through Libby between 1:00
and 3:00 a. m. Tuesday. The raft
is said to have contained a million
feet of wood. Incidentlv it is quite
a sight to see the Great Northern
depot in Libby furnishing boat ser

Waters in Flower, Parmenter and
Pipe creeks were reported to be
falling yesterday, but is was still
impossible to forcast with any cer

expected to pass. While there would
not seem to be as much water in
town as in the noted flood of 1916,
there is no ice jam to back up the
waters as was the case then, and
many old timers say there is fully
as much water going down stream
as on that occasion.
