MARKING EXHIBITS Principal Work of Yesterday In Wells Will Case Exhibits for the proponents In the Wells will case reached the number of 621 yesterday, when practically the entire morning and a part of the afternoon were taken to enter and mark exhibits. 281 of them being marked during the day. The Jury was excused from about 9:15 yesterday morning until two o'clock in the afternoon, while the greater part of this marKing was going on. In the afternoon, there was more marking and some reading in the diaries of Mrs. Wells. Only one witness was on the stand during the day. This was Frederick H. Wells, who went on the first thing yesterday morning to complete the testimony started the afternoon before. Attorney Sargent withdrew the question which was pending concerning Mr. Wells' financial condition, and asked a few questions In regard to his nearest relatives. Mr. Wells said that his nearest relatives were his nephews and nieces, and he started In to name them, creating some amusement when he failed to name Anna Wells Sykes among the list, of which omission he was finally reminded by Attorney Sargent. The exhibits which were marked during the morning were largely letters written by Anna Wells Sykes to her stepmother, Mrs. Effle E. P. Wells, which Mrs. Wells had kept for years back, carefully done up in bundles. At the after noon session Attorney Sargent called upon the attorneys for the contestants to produce letters written by Mrs. Wells to Anna covering the period from the beginning of 1914 down to the time of Mrs. Wells' death. In response to this call, the contestants later produced four letters in the handwriting of Mrs. Wells and addressed to Anna. These were admitted as evidence of the mental capacity of Mrs. Wells. A deed of the Wells house at 61 Summit street, transferring the house from Anna Wells Sykes and James Greenleaf Sykes to Mrs. Effle E. P. Wells was offered In evidence by the proponents, but the offer was withdrawn after an exception had been asked for by the contestants on the ground that this deed was immaterial In the case. During the,, afternoon, Attorney Sargent read to the Jury a copy of the contract entered into between the stockholders of the Wells-Richardson Co., Inc., relative to selling the stock of the company, this being the contract which has been referred to previously in the testimony of Frank R. Wells and George M. Besett. The last half hour of the afternoon session, which closed at 4:15, so that some of the Jurymen could get the 4:40 train, was taken up with the reading of the diaries of Mrs. Wells, including the lat ter part of the year 1913 and the early J part of 1914, being concerned mainly with the European trip of Mrs. Wells at that time. The check for $10 which Mrs. Effie E. P. Wells sent to her granddaughter, Martha Sykes, at the time the girl was in school, and which has been mentioned as causing difficulty in the family, because the money was finally returned to, Mrs. Wells, was Introduced ytesterday afternoon by the proponents. The names of Martha Sykes and the head of the school where she attended were on the back of the check, showing that it had been cashed., The contestants conceded the handwriting on this check to be that of the people whose names appear there, but objected to its being entered on the grounds that the names on the back were not material in the case. The check was admitted, and an exception noted for the contestants. Court was recessed yesterday afternoon until this morning, but the jurymen were excused until Monday afternoon at two o'clock, as the Wells case will not be taken up again until that time.

There will be at this meeting, also, an attempt to stimulate greater production in this country, for the purpose of reliev ing the present economic crisis in the country and lower prices 60 far as possible. In this regard, the call for the meeting, sent to every Chamber of Commerce In the country, says: "While the whole country Is complaining of the high cost of living many of us do not stop to think that all of us are ro a more or less extent to blame. It Is true there are some profiteers who are taking advantage of the people, but prof iteering is made possible by high prices ana is not a direct cause of them. "The one way to provide the people of the United States with the necessities and comforts of life is to produce more eoods. The law of supply and demand will con tlnue to work in the future as it has in the past, regardless of any statutes that may be put on the books by the federal or local governments. "A national program for increased production will be put forward at a gather ing or inree or tour thousand of the country's leading business men to be held by the Chamber of Commerce of the United States at Atlantic City April 26 to 29. The National Chamber, represent ing more than 1.300 commercial and industrial organizations throughout the country, realizes that greater production is the world problem to-day. The responsibility lies on all alike, manufacturer, merchant, farmer, worker. The contribution of the elements represented In each of these will be laid before the meeting In making up a program of greater output. "The United States emerged from the war In a much more fortunate position than Its European associates. Some of them are unable to produce because of a lack of capital and raw materials. It is our duty to give them practical help and at the same time to get after the slacker In our own country wherever he may be found." MONKTON The Rev. J. D. Gothey has returned from conference.

(From the Swanton Courier) In Brother WhitehlH's chatty remin iscence of his "25 years behind the press," he touches for a moment upon the am bition that every sincere country editor possesses. He says: 'Every publisher who has red blood in his veins has ambitions to publish a bet ter and more profitable paper for the community. This will be our endeavor and we hope to be -worthy of continuing to be the publisher of this paper in a manner that will keep the pace with the growth of the town. This can be accom plished If everyone will view the paper as their paper, their home paper and as sist whenever possible In seing to it that the important and Just happenings are given proper publicity. It is not possible In a country newspaper office to employ a large corps of special writers, thus to certain extent it is necessary to de pend on the kindness of friends and loyal citizens to help out at times.
