Curious Tale cf Sudden Death and Transformation. Ion OB Wou»»n Brink" tlic Clear Fluid Found In »" Egg-Shaped Rock »nd .!» Soon a Corp»« — Her Body retTUtod. A story that reads like a chapter from '•The Arabian Night 8 "" ^ ut v-bich is so well authenticated as to 'admit of no doubt as to its credibility, comes-froin Cleo- Springs, O. T. Cleo Springs is one of tlie most beau- tifuL'spots in 'the Oklahoma country, and the spa's from which -it takes its name are possessed of peculiar niedici- naJ properties. Miss Frances Perkins, formerly of St. Johns.-in Stafford county, Kan., with (i party of friends was outwalking 1 in -one of the picturesque groves near tlhe. little village, and the attention of the group was attracted by some eg-g-shaped rocks which they found nlpiig the path. They were about the size and sh apeo'f a loaf of rye liireacC but hollow in the center. One of the party'brbke one of these peculiar rocks end found that the cavity contained about -a' pint of clear water, while the Interior, of the rock was lined with beautiful crystals. The water in the first rock broken was spilled. The idea that the water might be 'endowed with some virtue took possession of Miss Perkins and .shc : announced her intention of drinking- the liquJd. - She held another of the egg-shaped rocks over a. bowl nnd 'broke, it, tlms saving all the water. This she poured into a glass and laughingly said: "Here is to the water that cnrae not from Heaven or from earth," and quaffed it. Fifteen minutes later she was dead. The draught she toasted had been her death potion. The sequel is the strangest part of the storv. The body was taken to her home by lier sorrowing 1 young- friends and in chic time the buria.1 garments were made ready. Her sister went into the death chamber to dress her, and as she did so her finger ring came in contact with the 'body, causing, a sound as if it touched marble. It was even so. The. body of Miss Perkins had turned to stone*. When- this was discovered it was decided to .bury the body, near the house, where it would be safer from grave robbers.. Miss Perkins was one .of the brightest roung'woroen in the settlement and she was very popular. Her untimely death has caused great sorrow. • Judge Ed- wnrd Merchant, of Stafford, county^ -who: is visiting relatives in Wichita, is authority for .the strange story. LIFE SAVER SWIMS EIGHT MILES.
