Messrs Ludlow and Allen That when
the drill reached a certiin depth m the

there is another side to tlie story. Mrs.
Brown, it is understood, is a most excellent
lady, and she and her two grown sons
have done all In their po,er to reform Mr.
Brown, but he was v strongly addicted to
drink that they coultl do little for Mm.
The boys say that they have virtually sup

father contnbuting sartcly a iienny to
their support. They not only iiipisirted
their mother and themselves, but supported
Mr. Brown, also, until they were driven by
