Well Finished for the Hlectrlc Ituihvay
Tested That Volunio When
Tho gas woll being drilled for the
Electric Hallway was finished last
Saturday and a careful test, puts tho
volumo at 7.000.000. This is oqulva'
lent to 350 tons of coal a day and
moans that amplo fuel Is provldod for
tho electric lino. Thcro was llttlo
doubt of tho result but Rome anxiety
was felt asa duster at that point would
have been discouraging.
F. V. Crouch, of course, Is barely
vlslblo today. If you scan tho heavens
carefully you can see him treading air
lit) about whero tho clouds would bo
wero there any. IIo returned next
morning from the cast nnd went to tho
well as soon as ho heard of it. As tho
prcssuro increased and the roar bo
caino deafening, ho stuck closo by
with a fat linger stuck Into each ear.
Nobody could talk, but he radiated
joy and satisfaction from every pore.
J. A. Itobtnson who stood near pulled
Crouch's fingers away and tho "blow
almost killed father Crouch."
Tho woll is locatod on tho banks of
Hock Creek just a mllo cast of Iola on
tho west bank of tho creek right north
of tho east wagon road. Around it
Mr. Crouch owns several acresof land
and right thero will bo erected tho
power houso for tho lino. Dolay in
beginning this was caused by tho pos
sibility that no gas would bo found
but now the building will bo pushed
hard. Tho power being thus located
in tho mlddlo of tho lino, its transmis
sion is far easier and moro certain.
Iola congratulates Mr. Crouch, and
congratulates herself on being ono of
tho fow places on oarth whero you can
sink a holo almost anywhere and have

it escapes your waste basket, bo inter

Tho town site, which is n magnifi
cent one, covers tho north half of sec
tion 34, township 0, range 15. About
twenty-ono miles southeast of Hobart,
tho county seat. Tho surrounding
mountains mako this a beautiful val
ley with almost absolutely perfect
drainage, especially so hero as the
stroain strikes tho town on tho south
east end, runs west to near tho center
of the town then makes a short turn
north and goes right through the town,
and tho bed of tho stream is from
twcnty-llvo to forty-five feet lower
than tho level of tho town, thus, as
has already boon said, making u per
fect drainage- for tho town. And right
hero a little digression is pennissablo.
I will say that If a good dam is built
wo will havo a blgsupply of soft water
for city water works and an leo plant
arid manufacturing purposes.

variety, so locatod that a lako for
boating, etc, con bo oasily made. I

is fond of shado. Tho main streets,
cast and west, are 100 feet wide and all
lots face north and south. Tho busl

lots 50x150 feet. Alleys aro 20 feet
wide. Cross streets north and south
uro 80 feet wide. Wo havo over 400
business lots and may havo more, as
already, before wo came, thrco rail
roads woro laid otl through hero.
When this becomes a railroad center

Tho KraiSTiiu has several times

that he will bo ablo to gel what ho

asked tho Commercial club to send a
commltteo to meet him between hero
and Iola and tho men selected for this

Fry who performed their duties well.
After lunch tho business men of tho
city escorted Mr. McDonald and his

tho city, endeavoring to assist him in
locating tho road. Then a reception
was given In tho city clerk's olllco
after which Mr. Chas. Diver andJDr.
II. G. Slavcns took tho gentlemen
down through tho Slaves, Bishop and
