BOSTON, Mass., July 8. The de

kets haa continued wltzttn compara
tively narrow bounds during, the
past week, manufacturer finding no
necessity to eitend themaelvea In
the purchase of raw materials, al
though thoy continued to be well oc
cupied on the orders and duplicates
which have been taken hitherto. In
deed, a fow of tho larger mills are
putting on night shifts to hurry
through their ordera and get the de
liveries made aa soon aa possible.
The spinners and combers am also
well occupied and prlnea for vsrns

of July.
Mill la Market
Tho mills have bees In the mar
ket for fair weight of fine and" fine
medium territory wools' In the orlg-j
Inal bags, and for these wools prices
have abown little change, clothing
descriptions selling In tho range of
60 to C3 or 64 cents, clean basis
and short combing wools aelllag at
from 65 to 70 cents, clean basis.
There haa been some call for medi
um grades of wool, quarter and
three-elghtha blood combing having
been sold at about 60 cents, dean
basis, "while quarters have brought
about 40 cents.
These prices ahow no change aa
compared with a wpek ago, nor for
that matter, as against two or three
weeks ago.
Fin Wools Attract Mills
Thn mills have shown continued
Interest, also. In foreign fine wools,
especially In Australians, which, of
course, cannet be Imported under
the emergency tariff act, and so
have an added attraction to the
mills, who want to secure them for
the sake of the softer feeling and
finer finish which they give to a
piece of gooda when blended with
domestic wool. Thus ,the domestic
wool gives the strength to the cloth
while the Australian fibre gives the
finish and softness. This Is espe
cially truo of the present clip, Inas
much as the drought last year In
Australia rendered a large portion
of tho clip tender and mushy. There
has been a better call for pulled
wools in the market thla week, these
wools being relatively scarce and If

A coyote that chased thn ranch

By thn courtesy of Captain Siemens
and Nell Campbell, the writer has bad
the opportunity of examining the log
of the Siemens' well. It Is not be
lieved to be a breach of confidence
to atate that the log shows a series
'of sands and sandstones of varying
degrees of porosity. Almost without
exception, any of these sands or sand-
atone might fie a competent medium
of oil accumulation providing the
sand had proper capping; was In
auch structural position aa to favor

tion with the place of origin. Almost

time has this effect is the heat of
Metamorphlsm, that is the best of
earth movement. Thla heat, far
more intense 'than volcanic heat, Is
that which" generally produces what
Is called metamorphlc rocks, that Is,
rocka which have been exposed to
sufficient heat to fuse together the
stratifications and change tho form
of the rock particles. There la meta
morphlc rock on the aurfaco at many
polnta In the Klamath Basin. The
log of the well drilled to various
depths In the valley, which It haa
been the writer' privilege to exam
ine, ahow no evidence of motamorphic
action except near the surface.
Metamorphlc heat Is a, construc
tive aa well aa a destructive force.
There la little doubt that a degreo of
metamorphlc heat must be present
at the birth of oil. Aa a demonstra
tion that tho heat of metamorphlsm

coal bods. Coal la a metamorphlc pro
duct that gains Its character largely
through the Instrumentality of met
amorphlo heat. Beginning with peat
which contains approximately 66
per cent carbon the coal family onds
with graphite which is pure carbon.
Peat is found on the surface, coal
in veins under tho aurfaco and gra
phite in stringers near or in the
baaal complex or bottom of tho stra
tified formations of the csrth. The
character of the coal evidently de
pends largely on the degreo of met

the largest element controlling the

not be accepted as an indication nee.
essarlly unfavorable to oil. If at
