Reynolds for the Democratic nomination for United States Senator, was a visitor in Southport Saturday and spent several hours here with friends. An interesting feature of his visit was a trip to Ft. Caswell for a look at the famous hot springs. A boat from the Oak Island Coast Guard station carried the congressman and a group of local citizens oyer. Mr. Hancock showed an active interest in the well and wanted to know the results of analysis that have been made. Congressman Hancock says i that he is enthusiastic over developments in his race to oust Bob Reynolds from his seat in the senate. "I have met with encouraging success everywhere I have been," he stated, i Reminded that his opponent i was no mean politician, Congrest Choose AU-To Teams Foil i Unanimous Vote Accorded Three Boys And Two ' Girls in Selection of Myt hical Teams Of County > SELECTION MADE BY THE COACHES !

Gladys Mintz, of Shallotte, and Juanita Sowell, of Bolivia were unanimous selections for the girls team. Five coaches handed in a selection for the boys, but only four girls teams were named. The blanks provided for a first and second team in each division. Two points were given for a first team vote, one point for being J named on a second learn. J Paired with Jenrettc at forward on the first team for the boys is Clark, diminutive Leland forward, whose classy ball-handlf ing won him nine votes. Smith f was a stand-out at center, and Bolivia made a clean sweep oi e the guard positions on the first team when Lewis was given eight p votes as a mate for C. Taylor. At forward for the second team were Evans, of Waccamaw, and Lcsh, of Bolivia. The former waf barely nosed out of a first tearr p berth.

' This record is a very coma plete one and adds much to the interest surrounding the well. It establishes as aut'e hentic many of the current claims for the well, some of these claims having been based on supposition. For instance, it required it over two years to sink the ;e shaft. It was first started in ie 1905 and was finished in it 1907. First rock was struck r- by the drill at a depth of r. 728 feet.

From the 1,400 foot level where the first strong artesian flow was struck, the soil formation was a coarse sand, with small shell fragments and crusts of iron oxide. The prevalence of the iron mineral and that of calcium and other minerals in large quantities causes the water to turn to a deep golden yellow soon after it is exposed to the air. Many persons have gained the impression that the water in the bathing pool is muddy, because of this yellow color. This is a mistake, the yellowness is a natural color for water containing so many minerals, after it has been exposed to the air.
