Two Breaks in Levee Reported; Hidalgo May Be Cut Off By High Water

Brownsville Expects Crest of Flood Friday; Rains Continue
BROWNSVILLE. Tex., Sept. 7.
i.p» The crest of the Rio Grande flood surged past Hidalgo today. inundating a vast area in the lowlands and breaking levees along its banks.
High water was pouring through scores of breaks on tb*-j Mexican side of the river and; swirling across th** thousands of ( acres of land. As the water back-* cd up against the banks of the floodways in Hidalgo county, there! wen* two bn-'iks. one south of Mil-* -ion and on** south of McAllen.
Th* Mission break was about 30 j fed wide. Army aviators xvho returned to Brow nville after a sur-! vey said they did not think it i could Im* stopped. There was some chance of filling th** gap near McAllen.
Water was hacking up around Hidalgo and it appeared th** community would be isolated. Hidalgo was th** only town on the American sid** of the river which had been flooded.
On th** Me\|can side, the situation was much worse. Reynosa was almost surrounded bv high water. Cajole, Madeiro and San Manuel were partially under whaler. Others had xvaler a foot or two deep in them.

A 20 per cent cut in valuation I of public service total for last year would set the total for this year at about $3,800,000 which with the real and personal property total given above would give (Pontotoc county a total valuation ! of a little more than $14,600,-000.
