X ‘THE ORANGE PAPER MILL
Machinery Arrived—Building Com-
pleted and Prosperous Outlook.
M- Hesser, superintendent of
the new paper mill, arrived this
morning from Pensacola, Fla.,
where he has been superintend-
ing the dismantling of the old
plant at that place. Mr. Hesser
was seen by a Tribune reporter
immediately after his arrival,
and stated that several cars of
machinery arrived in Orange
yesterday afternoon and the
— ARTESIAN WELLS
In Orange County—A Well Worth It’s
Weight in Gold.
Preposterous as it may ap-
pear, there is a well of water
in Orange county more valuable
by far than the greatest oil pro-
ducer on the far-famed Spindle-
top Heights in Heaumont. This
famous well of water is on the
property of W. A. Fletcher, a
well-to-do farmer in the country
who bored for water a few
months. The driller sunk the
balance would be here some j we]l to a depth of 740 feet when
time during this week. The
machinery will be unloaded at
once and put into place as soon
as possible in order that little
time will be lost*in the opera
tion of the plant. Orders are
coming in with every mail and
the company is particularly
anxious to commence the manu-
facture of paper at as early a
date as possible. Eighteen car
loads of machinery have been
shipped from Pensacola with
which to equip the mill in
Orange, which will assume even
greater proportions than at
first thought. The Southern
Pacific railroad will put in their
sidetrack some time during the
week, so that little difficulty
will be encountered in shipping
the product of the mill.
The building now stands com
pleted, the last coat of paint
having been put on Saturday,
and the brick foundations for
the heavy machinery will be put
in place at once. It is safe to
say that within two weeks the
first product of the mill will be
almost ready for shipment.
From the present prosperous
outlook, it is very likely the ca-
pacity of the piant will neoessi
tate a material increase shortly
after the .opening, in which
event an additional building
will be erected and much ma-
WILL FINISH BUILDING
In the Fall—Foundation Walls Now
The outside foundation, curb
' walk and tilling in the sidewalk
to the new Anderson building
on the corner of Fifth and Main
streets are almost completed.
Mr. Anderson was seen by a
Tribune reporter this morning
and stated that since the weath-
er was so oppressively hot the
building would not be completed
this summer, but the work
would be continued again in the
fall. It is his intention to erect
a handsome, two-story pressed
brick store and office building
which will be constructed to
suit the tenant. This building
is located directly next to the
postoffice and is an especially
a magnificient flow of water
came to the surface. An 8-inch
pipe was then put down, and
the well now sends a clear,
sparkling stream of the purest
water fully twenty feet above
the ground. It was the original
intention of Mr. Fetcher to use
the water found for irrigating
purposes, but he since found
that this particular well is al-
most worth its weight in gold,
as tlie saying goes.
Since the drinking water iu
Beaumont has grown stagnant,
Mr. Fletcher has started a very
lucrative business disposing of
the product of the well. Each
day his water boat is tilled and
towed to Beaumont where it is
sold at 12j cents a gallon or $1
a barrel and it is almost im-
possible to supply the demand
which is increasing each day.
There is no doubt that ar-
tesian wells with an unusually
pure quality of water could be
found all over Orange county
and the success of Mr. Fletcher
simply demonstrates that the
well scheme would be a good
one for fanners to adopt and. in
fact, even the city residents
eventually eliminate the cis-

At the recorder’s court this
morning Will Goodman was ar-
raigned for disturbing the peace.
He was found guilty, and his
fine and costs amounted to $17.
On Board Ship, Owing to an Inter-
By Associated Press.
New York. July 7.—There is
much excitement on board the
ship Attractor, moored at the
Morris street dock, Jersey City,
owing to the stealing of the
most precious thing on board,
part of an old ship’s bell, bear-
ing the inscription ‘‘Prince of
Wales 1740” and consigned to
King Edward of England. The
bell, or rather the pieces of it
were intrusted to the care of
Captain Scott, according to his
story, by the British officials of
Kingston, Jamaica, the captain
promising to forward them to
the king upon his arrival in port
here. The relic with coins
valued at more than |10,000 had
been recovered from the sea by
native fishermen near Kingston
and turned over to the British
officers who on discovering
the inscription decided to send
it to King Edward as a corona-
tion gift. Captain Scott was
about to sail and he agreed to
bring the bell to New York.
Captain Scott told the story of
the bell and a few hours later
it was mysteriously removed
from the ship’s hold.
