quantities hid been discovered oa ths
prairie at tbe c ruer ot Ferry and No
ble streets. The importance of ueh
a find was manifest when taken in
connection with lti proxiuaiiy with
tbe city's great manufacturing estab
lishments. Upon investigation, it waa
fonnd tbat five years ago some gentle
men purchased a Un aTie clay bank
in L,akeviaw at tnepiao named arid
bave been turning out large quantities
of brick ever since. About a year ago
there waa noticed am. ng the lower
a rata of clay a black ttlcky substance
re iembling printers' ink aud having a
very decided odor of petroleum.
Very little att'nt on waa paid to tte
matter tut witnin tae tan six weets.
Wednesday a small bubblirg waa no
ticed in the place aud a close examin
ation showed that the spasms, which
were at intervals of five minutee,
threw to tht eurfuce a ternate yields of
water and tbe matter in question.
Yesterday Cant. Villar.', of the Lake
View polica, took two Pennsylvania
oil inspected out to the find, and they
agreed that it was pure petroleum, but
could form no idea as to whether or
not it was to be found in paying quao.-
ti ies. Another man, whose name is
withheld, ollred ttie firm $10,f0l) for
the ten acres, but was answered that,
leaving out the possibility of oil, it
was wort'i to them for buck making
purposes more than the amount
named. Tha firm are apparently skop
t cal in regard to the alleged find, but
the ptopla in the Leighborhood aro
highly wiought up over the matter.
Near the clav bank is a huge flat rock
several hundred eqinrefeot of which
is exposed to view. It it averted by
persons whotlaim to kDowthat the
rock is stiongly impregnated with
natural gas. The rumor has greatly
added to th excitemootcaused by the

Col. Fred Grant Says About
Nsw YoBK.'Anguft 7. An article
has recently appeared in eeveral papers
to ths tff.-ct thHt Grant wanted to be
buried on Mount McGregor, snd teat
he left a Utter expressing thia wish in
plain term?. The ret son given fir
this desire on the part of the General
was that hia l f i had been prolonged
by tbe pure air of tbe mountain, so
tbat be was enabled to finish his book
and thus provide for the family. This
statement was shown yeet-rday to Col.
F. D. Grant. He read it carefully.
"Tnen ia no foundation for such a
story," be said with emphsaia, as hs
banded back ths printed elio. "My
father never wrote ruoh a let'er. never
made such a request orally, and I feel
sure that he never tbonght of such a
thing. I don't see how a report of
this kind could get started, unless by
soma one who has an interest in Mount
''Yon do not think that the General
could have ext rested suih a wish to
other pereons than yourself ?"
"No, I do not, for this reason : My
father never give any definite expres
sion about his pln.cn of burial till after
he lest his voice. Then shortly before
his dcatn hs wrote me a note on the
nutter. Ia th's ho nuntioned New
York, Galena and St Louis as places
cf intorment. He mentioned Nsw
York first and Btated his reasors for
desiring to be buried here. ' These
were, in brief, that he liked the peo
ple and tec iu e tbo city had become
the home of his family. Furthermore,
it was the largest city of the country.
Galena was his early home and Ht.
Louis tbe place in which he began his
manhood career. I read the no'e over
and then told bim thft I wanted to
have him buried in Washington.
When he heard this, he took the pa
per and tore it up. 'Perhaps,' he ad
ded, 'my funeral may take a public
form. If it does, you must fee that
wherever I am buiied, your mother
will bave a place b'siJe me at her
death.' Thia was the substance of all
