He had the bridle under his arm with other purchases made here. Dr. Adder hold says he has bought saddles at both Bryan and Navasota during the past live years and Navasota has always been 2.50 to $500 higher on them than Bryan. A prominent citizen of Navatota was here yeeterday, and in the presence of a number of gentlemen freely admitted that Bryan is re ceiving and handling twice as rauch cotton this season aa Navaso ta. He said: "Tho people of Gib boil's Creek, nine miles from Nav asota, haul their cotton to Bryan. They say they come not because they get more for their cotton but because they claim they can buy goods cheaper in Bryan' The gentleman declined to allow the use of his name when the reporter pull ed his pencil, but the Eagle can furnish ailidavits to what is here quoted from as good men us there aro in urazos county, ine r.HRie does not claim that my an pays more for cotton than other point with ppinncrfe' buyers nnd equa railroad advantage, but it does claim that Brvanpays as much as any of them, if not more; and the Eagle aleo claims and ollWs th proof that Bryan is ft better cotton market for the farmer because he can buy goods cheaper hero than anywhere else in Central Texas, and all he has to .lt to prove it is to come here and see for himself.

GunVy Peir jluttm c tnwiiy, McFadilen No. H, s'rnck a gaa Tauro yesterday which exceeded anything of the kind erer seen here before, and completely demolished the derrick and drilling rig. At 4 o'click in tho afternoon the Ira O. Wysc-Beaumont Oil company's well ou block 87 in the Hogg-Swayne syndicate, also strock a gas pocket which blow out the pipe, tore down the pipe, tore down the derrick and demolished everything abint the rig. The two performances were quite tho most remarkable which hare erer oo curred in this field, and certainly the greatest pressure of patnral gas ever aeen anywhere in the world. , At the Oaffey well the 8-inch caning was set at something leas than 000 feet and the contractor was operating with a 000-foot string of 0-inch pij with a hoe at the bottom. It was apparent that tho welt was about ready to oome In, and they were watching It very cloauly, but not clone enough to discover what a remarkable accident was about to happen. Without a moment's warn ing the gai scenicd to burst in tho well i and tbe 000 feet of Much standard dril ling pipe begnn to nhoot upward. The rotary locked on the pipe and was car ried out the top of the derrick, fastened to the pipe, as though it win an ordi nary nipple. The pipe was carried clear of the well, and couseqnently the top end of it was somo thousand feet in the air when the butt piece cleared th top of the casing. As the pipe, with tin large rotary went through tho derrick, it smashed tho wood work Into kind ling wood and scattered It In every di rection. No one knows jnst how tho men es caped without injury, bnt it is a fnot that not one of the siz or seren men at the rig was harmed in the least. Hut there was aomo brink acrambling when the accident occurred. Men started out over the prairie and did not stop until they reached a remote enot free from falling debris. Several teams attached to buggiee took fright at the monitor noise and went i-U mell over the eonntry. Ordinary efforts fail to pio- ture adequately the excitement of tho scene and tho fearful noise which can not be likened to anying in ordinary life. Following the drilling pipe came torrent of water and rock which shot fully 10OO f-4-t into tho nlr. Suneof the rock were from 20 to 30 pound weight, Sime of thii npeefntor riix'lure thnt the rock were 2000 f.t in the air.
