THE OIL BOOM Punctured With the Dagger of Disappointment. Water Found Thug Far In Three With no f race of Oil. Wells The result of the explorations for oil at New Waverly and In Adams township has proven a great disappointment to those who -xpected to find a flow or the black fluid west or northwest of Veru. At 987 feet oil aand was struck in the second well drilled In the New Waverly company. The drill was sent down yesterday to a depth of 1,000 feet when a fine quality of mud was discovered. Another well will be drilled. Well No. 3 will be located south of No. 2 towards the Wabash river. The Orook well is filled with salt water. No signs of oil were discov ered. It is nut likely that this company will drill another w*ll. The Banker Hill company have their derrick up at Walton. The contractor is drilling a well at Arejoe and has had trouble with quicksand otherwise work would have been begun before now. The Walton well will be located on the farm of James Davis, about 300 yards east of Blsh- op'8 store. If this company fails to find oil, there will be somed»ubts about there being any oil in Cass county. The contractors for the Logansport company's well on the Rogers farm have had lots of hard luck and are not yet down to limestone. They have passed through nearly 300 feet of quicksand. GAVE THASMS.

Martin Mock, a farmer residing in the neighborhood of Adamsboro, whose sensatioual matrimonial experiences have been aired in court, called on Coroner Busjahn, Wednesday, and he not only made the startling announcement that he had found a human fetus on his farm, but accused his wife with its authorship; also charging that one of his hired men was a partner In the case.

Some soiled linen was found, and Mrs. Mock admitted a premature birth; that the fetus was three m»nths old, but denied any criminality, Mock is about 55 years of age. His wife is about 35, and it appears that they are not dwelling together in peace and harmony. She says the old man Is jealous. enterprise is to be a labor exchange and to Include any and all salable articles produced by the hands of labor. For instance, a harnessmaker out of work m»y make up a set of harness, and taking the same to the exchange, will be given labor exchange checks equal to the value of the harness. These exchange checks will be good for any article offered for sale at the exchange, and they are expected to pass current among the people as money. A farmer may take certain kinds of produce there and exchange them for the harness or any other goods. The plan has been tried In several cities and Is said to be quite successful. Tbe movement in this ciey has already secured the cooperation of fifty or -nore laboring men and others. THANKSGIVING WEDDING. Mr. Miss George Strecker, Jr., and Lena Hoffman Married.

Dress Goods FOR TWO REASONS. We bought an unusually big stock of DRESS GOODS for this season. In the first place, ther» was every prospect for a good business, and secondly it was a positive certainty that the Dingley tariff would advance prices iroin 15 to 40 per cent. Continued warm weather and other unfavorable conditions we could not for see, prevented the realization of our hopes and we now find our stock extremely arge, and sellincr time to short. We must reduce the quantity, and if necessary, take a loss on a much lower cost than we could buy the goods for today or for many years to come.
