when taken ou the other day it was

bar. die being broken off. The but

the day it went into tbe well
Strange to eay this butter had never
got strong enough to get out of the
well, but it is true. The water in
the well is very strong. There is
also a fine gold watch in the wd)
that has been there a number of
years. The flow cf water was so
stron and deep that the atch
could not be found, and like Mc

well is on the old Shockley place in
