I I I I Pioneer Voice Of The Community—For Home And Country NUMBER TWENTY-NINE WOLF POINT, MONTANA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 1932 HERALD— VOL. XX WATER SURVEY BY DR. PERRY STATE SCHOOL OF MINES MAN TESTS WOLF POINT FLOW ING WELL Dr. Eugene S. Perry was in Wolf Point last Saturday. He is chief geologist of the Montana state bu reau of mines and geology at the School of Mines at Butte, doctor is sipending a portion of the summer studying artesian wells frow Wilder, above the mouth of the Musselshell, to Wolf Point. The purpose of his survey is to find areas in dry land where water wells can be obtained, and also collect informations about artesian well now in use. He travels by car with a complete outfit for testing. The Wolf Point well, in the south edge of town, struck at 1065 feet when drillers were testing the field for natural gas, when tested by Dr. Perry, showed a temperature of 64 degrees and a pressure of The 69 pounds. Big leaks, outside a round the big pipe, and in the Joints of the reducers, cause the well to lose much of its pressure. Each pound on the guage equals approximately two feet of the height to which the water would lift itself if confined. "Sheet water," said Dr. Perry, is the source of the supply and similar flows may be obtained in surrounding territory not too much elevated. The well has a strong flow of around 50 gallons per min ute. The water is highly mineral ized and may be too much so for irrigation. It will be analyzed with reference to its value to plant life, ît is highly satisfactory for live stock, especially in winter because of its mild temperature, the doctor eays. It has also been used by peo ple without harmful effect. It is excellent for laundering. Several pintures were taken of *he well with extension pipe taking the flow a few feet upward. The water analysis with refer ence to effect on plant life will he watched with interest. Even if un enited for irrigation the well is considered a valuable asset to a town or a farm.

Wheat holding agreements are being circulated as fast and wide as possible and it is ex pected they will be generally sign ed. McCone county farmers surely should join the movement that has spread to virtually all parts of the great western wheat belts, and which looks to be the biggest stroke of farmer organization for one fixed purpose ever attempted. "It is not the intention or de sire," said O. B. Horsford, one of the active organizers, "to make the wheat holding agreements in Mc Cone county stringent or unreason- ! able in terms or price limit.

RAIN AND HAIL DAMAGE'CROPS A GARDENS, STANDING GRAIN SUFFER IN SEVERAL LOCALITIES Revere storms of rain and hail did serious damage to grain and garden over a wide territory the last week. After a hot and sultry Sunday, storm clouds gathered in the west, and divided into at least two storms which moved eastward. Certain localities were hit hard, while others received ordinary rains or were missed entirely. North of Oswego the rain amounted al most to a cloudburst, and 600 bush els of wheat piled on the ground on the Fladland farm were wash ed into the coulee or out over the flat for an almost total loss. On the same farm shocks of wheat were floated into a pile at one side of the field. Well to the north of there on the Cottonwood, hail Is reported to have destroyed consid erable standing wheat. The And reas Hoversland and C. F. Brown farms were hit and some standing grain on the former place was bad ly damaged. The Browns lost a fine garden and had their corn badly pounded.. Hail broke in some win dows. Many others suffered loss es, but The Herald has not been able to obtain a complete list. In the immediate vicinity of Ben rud hall numerous farms suffered damage to standing grain. These included the Senzek Bros., Emil Nelson, the old Dorgan farm. Ad Waldhauer farm and others. Heavy hail damage is also reported north of Brockton where 130 acres of standing wheat was totally destroy ed on one farm. The Froid territory, which had had little rain since June was the center of a severe storm. An ac count of the storm in the Great Falls Tribune says: FROID. Aug. 23.— Froid base ments were flooded creeks over flowed their banks and gardens were submerged from rains that assumed the proportions of a cloud burst here. The large basement of the First State bank was com pletely filled with water and the city water pump was worked for 24 hours to drain it. The rain was accompanied by wind and a severe electric display and hail fell thick in some nearby sections for more than half an In town hailstones were hour. small and did no damage but a few miles southeast they are said to have been as large as hen eggs. Windows were smashed at the Dick Nordman farm and consider able damage done to small farm buildings in various parts of the community by wind and hail. Just east of Froid many farm ers who had standing wheat and others grains are practictlly wiped out. James Osthy reports loss of 40 acres of uncut wheat, Hans Larsen lost 200 acres, Harry Sor enson lost nearly all his crop and W. F. Blowers, who operates the J. C. Stuller farm east of here, lost 60 acres. Gardens in many places are prac tically a total loss and acres of corn are stripped to the stalks. Chickens, turkeys and other poul try were killed in some localities. While the storm did consider able damage, it also did a vast a mount of good to late potatoes, gardens, corn, pastures and it in creased the water supply in gener ai.
