Mother Finds Sons Dead in a Well

Las Vegas, N.M., April 27.—Mrs. Zachary Taylor Cooper went out to call her sons to supper last night and found them dead at the bottom of a 60-foot well. Digging for water on their dry land farm, they had struck a flow of natural gas and suffocated without a sound.
