An Interesting Law Suit.
Evidence in a case of peculiar interest
was beard at Warren last week involving
a contest In equity between Alwilda
DaelhaUBenof MoUraw, and the heirs of
he late Hugh Miles, whose death oc
curred less than a year ago at bis borne
at Fagundus, two miles out from
Trtiokeyville station. He was 92 years
of age at tbe time of bis death, and some
years prior to bis demise Miss Daelbausen
had been employed as bis housekeeper.
She continued in bis employ until bis
death, some years prior to wbicb Mr.
Miles deeded ber bis properly wbicb
consisted of three pieces of land, the
grant also including bis personal effects
and some cash. The heirs claim that
undue influence was exercised over tbe
old gentleman in inducing him to assign
to ber tbis property, and considerable
testimony was taKen on both sides of tbe
case to show tbat Mr. Miles, for Borne
time prior to bis death, either was or was
not capable of transacting business or ex
ercising good Judgment in the disposal of
bis property, Tbe heira who are con
testing the case number about fourteen,
and tbeir case is being bandied by
Alexander A Clark of Warren, and
Breene A Breene of Oil City.
Miss Daelbausen takes tbe ground that
she never received wages from Mr. Miles,
but that ber relations were the same as
those between daughter and father. Con
sequently she claims tbat she has mo'O
right to the property than the heirs who
are mostly nieces and nephews. Her
case is In oharge of D. I. Ball of Warren
and A, C. Brown of Tionesta. Among
the witnesses for tbe defense who testified
to tbe soundness of mind of old Mr,
Miles were tbe following from Tionesta:
G. G. Gaston, J. D. W. Reck, J. W.
Landers, Joseph Clark, A. M. Doutt, Mrs,
Tbe case will not be decided before tbe
next term of court, tbe proceedings last
week being in tbe nature of a bearing as
to whether tbe Judgment shall beopened.
On Ibis question the court will render bis
decision in due time.
Mineral Production of Forest County
Tbe Topographic and Geologic Survey
Commission of Pennsylvania furnishes
the following facta regarding Forest
county's mineral products:
The only mineral production reported
from Forest county in 1913, as In 1912,
was petroleum aud natural gas.
There was but little difference in tbe
output ol petroleum reported, tbe total as
near as can be ascertained from the re
ports received, being 186,000 barrels, with
a value of $473,000 as compared with 184,
000 barrels with a value nf$'l02,000 in 1912.
It Is impossible to separate the produc
tion of natural gas from the total produc
tion of tbe State with tbe degree of cer
tainty desired. Tbe conditions attending
tbe piping of natural gas renders It al
most impossible to separate the output
from tbe different counties, and at 'the
best there Is a large eleme it of uncer
tainty concerning tbe value of thia out
put in any limited area. From tbe re
ports received the value of the natural
gas output from Forest County in 1913 la
estimated as between $200,000 and $250,000.
but as stated tbis is a mere estimate based
on those returns which are accurate and
an arbitrary division of the remaining
production In tbe State.
