KARL HOVLAND HOME
BURNS SUNDAY
Fire of an unknown origin burned
the home of Karl Hovland early Sun
day morning. i
The house had just been cleaned
and fumigated and put in readiness
for Mr. Hovland's family, who have
been spending some time at Flaxton
ancl were not at home at the time
of the fire. The blaze was so far
advanced at the time it was discov
ered that it was impossible to save
but very little of the contents and
as the Outlook fire fighting apparat
us is limited the building and con
tents were soon destroyed Th* loss
is only partly covered by insurance,
Mr. Hovland and Mrs. Larson left
for Flaxton in Mr. Hovland's car at

TEAPOT DOME PRO
DUCTION FALLS OFF
P aa y
When the receivers were appointed
on March 13, all drilling and devel
opment work by the Mammoth were
ordered suspended. Since then the
daily average production for the en
tire field has fallen off practically
on third. For the week ending March
8, the average daily production was
3965 barrels, and for the week end
ing April 26, it was 2675 barrels.
Unless the government continues the
drilling program started by the Mam
moth Oil company, there is little
doubt but what the production of the
field will decline to less than 2,000
barrels a day c»r an average of 35
barrels per well.
Suspension of operations on the
Teapot has resulted in the throwing
out of employment of approximately
500 people as it is estimated that the
Mammoth would now be employing
that number in developing the lease
had the property not been thrown in
to litigation whereas the number now
employed is less than 50 peonle.
