Another ice cave has been dis
covered in the vicinity of Bend,
this time on Jack Ferguson's
place. It will be remembered
that Mr. Ferguson has a hole on
his form several feet deep that
was once u well but from which
all the water disappeared. Re
cently he decided to cement the
bottom of it and convert it into
a cistern to catch the winter
rains. When he started to do
this he found that a goodly
amount of ice had formed in the
bottom of the one-time well and
is puzzling him and his family to
figure out where the water came
from that made the ice. Since
frost left the ground water has
been heard trickling in the bot
tom of the well, which leads
them to beleive that it is not
probahle the ice formed during
the winter and has not thawed.
No one has yet given a satisfact
ory explanation for the phen
omenon. But Mr. Ferguson is
