it was his opinion and that of 25
other oil men who had been watching
the well gush, that it was good for
l.:iMi to 2.im barrels.
The well is on the- southwest cor
ner of the Glynn Franklin lane and
is the northwest offset to the discov
ery well in the same section, which
was drilled by Messrs. Harris &
Hampton.. The top of the sand was
found at l.fils 1-2 feet, and the drill
went I'D feet into the sand, when
the flow got so strong that further
work was impractical.
The discovery well is now several
weeks old and Is Mowing about ISO
barrels from the top of the sand. It
was drilled only two feet in the sand,
and possibly would make a big gusher
itself if deepened.

CLAIMS COWL SHOT HIMSELF
Coroner Decides Death Could Not
Have Resulted as First Stated.
Bridgeport. Conn.. April 28. Arthur
Hearn Cowl of New York, who died
at a hospital here Monday night of
a bullet wound In the head, com
mitted suicide, according to the cor
oner's finding filed today. The coro
ner said Cowl shot himself at the
home of Arthur DeForest Wheeler In
Stratford, where Cowl had gone to
visit his fiancee, Miss Emily Wheeler.
The report declares that Miss Wheel
er had nothing to do with the death,
and says Miss Wheeler told the offic
ers Cowl asked her to pull a riblion
attached to his vest, and when she
did so, the shot followed.

demonstrated that the automatic re
volver used by Cowl could not be
fired by such means and concluded

pulled the ribbon.
OSAGE OIL NOT EXEMPT.
Attorney General Advises Auditor
Should Collect Tax.
Oklahoma City, April 28. An opin
ion by the attorney general directed
to the state auditor advises collec
tion of the 2 per cent gross pro
duction tax on oil produced in the
Osage nation. It has been generally
believed that the Osages would be ex
empt from this tax under the decision
of the supreme court of the United
States in Choctaw coal cases. It is the,
the Choctaw coal cases. It Is the
theory of the attorney general that,
while the question is doubtful, the
auditor should collect the tax. The
cases that may arise under this de
cision will go speedily to the courts
and be determinative of the issue.

teachers were overheard comparing
notes on their school work one day
last week. One of them said:
"I left the drawer of my desk full
of apples, pears and hickory nuts
when I came up to the association.
My children are always bringing me
The other teaclier laughed as she
said: "Mine are not so free with
their gifts. One of my small boys
came to me and asked:
" 'Would it make any difference in
my grades if I brought you a great
big apple every day?"
"I told hint he might try It and

" 'If I try it. and you fiml out that
it ain't makln' any diff'rence. will
you tell me. so's won't waste any
