Tie mystery in tho murder Is its
envfonraent. The wooded bluff
wlvfe Thompson's body wbb found
is ! lonely spot, hard of access. Why
heohduld have gone there, or for
wltt purpose, is a puzzle. The hlll
sIJ Is steep and overgrown with un
dJibrush. There is no road at its
bfje. The only easy way to get there
vbuld be by passing through the
cmetery. Why Thompson went

So far as can bo learned to-night,

In a New York streot car a young

head of the oil company which has
Just sold its Louisiana oil holdings

And then the Oil King, football
player, &c, who has Just given his
old school, the University of Pitts

eight dry holes, but the little wife
would not let him give up. Trees
"I went home that day and said to
my wife, 'It's all over, little girl.
She's come in a duster. We're done

get work and do just as I used to.'
Ulut she said, "No, no, wo can't stop
now. Wo are not beaten yet. Try
again, Joe, Just once more.' "
It was in vain, according to the
Oil King, that he tried to argue
with his wife that all the money he
had in tho world was gone, that he
was in debt, &c. She Insisted that
