But it is now thou ht that the blowouts were the cause oi the hole turning out to be a saltw-at ir "ell. The second blow. out accurrl at lithe time of the setting of the six inch easing. This made a big hole at the hott(iom of the casing, and left no place for the piipe to be set in the Ihin layer of blue gumbo which lies bet ween the said water sand and the oil-hearing sand. Conse quently thellre was no way in the pow er of the driller to shut out the salt water. However, the well may yet turn out to be a good producer. It is situated near well No. 4 of the Syn dicate, which was drilled in by K. S. Connally about three years ago. That well was at first a salt water-producer, but by the use of a packer, combined with the flow of compressed air, Drill er Connally succeeded in developing one of the bestp roducers the Syndi cate ever possessed. It developed iii. to a 7.000-barrel gusher of first-class oil. Consequently there is still holpe for well No. 37. Mother and Babe Killed.

IS QUESTIONED FOR AN HOUR Counsel Chandler's Sudden Proposition to Widen Inquiry Goes Over for Discussion. Concord. N. N. , Confronted in her own home by three special mlasters, one of :heni a famous alienist. Mrs. Mary It. G. Eddy. head of he ('hris;ian Science church, for an hour \V\'diesdaiv afternoot n \uwas subjeected !to examlinat;on to determine whether s:-' has capacity to manage her own af fairs. She answered all questions readily, seemedi to be of nimble wit that en abled her to transfer her altonmirnn (luickly fromi one question to another. and was appl)arentlly unconcerned abourt the outcome of the examination. Judge Aldrich, Hosea G. Parker and Dr. (ieori:e F. Jolly, the masters, ac companied by William E. Chandler. counsel for the plaintiffs; Gen. Frank S. Streeter, personal counsel for Mrs. Eddy. anti an official stenographer, made ulp 'lie party of visitors. Counsel Springs Surprise. Following the visit to Mrs. Eddy preciptatel by the counsel of the "next friends," a surprise was sprung by Ie PI counsel for the plaintiffs in their e, deavor to widen the scope of inquiry 1 so that it would include the proposi. tion that the teaching of Christion Sci ence bIy Mrs. Eddy for a generation was direct evidence of her general in sanity. This pr',psltion was elucidated by Counsel Howe, associate of Mr. Chan dler, and was more amplified in its character than the original proposition submitted by the latter in his opening Tuesday, the proposition that Mrs. Eddy was the victim of seven syste matic delusions, which had been pro gressive and which had culminated in her mental destruction. Postponed for Argument. This receding or amplifying from th: original position was hardly welcomed by General Streeter, and the matter went over until Thursday for argt ment. Judge Aldrich, acting as spokesman for the masters, had already ruled th:at the hearing was not to be taken as dis. establishing Christian Science as a reli gious corporation, but in regard to this latter ca-e admitted that the proposi tion was one that must be settled later on by the masters. This statement by I the senior master is taken to mean that Mrs. Eddy must finally submit t'? examination by alienists, either Dr. Jolly, as t.aster, or by a commission. t PRESERVES HUMAN BODIES.
