The New Oil Well.
A few weeks ago we mentioned the
fact that the , oil company of Wooster
were making preparations for boring for
oil near the Old Salt Works, about three
miles above Wooster on KlUbuck. Two
weeks ago the boring was begun at a dis
tance of .one hundred and ten feet from
the old well. We visited the Works on
Saturday and were much Interested in
the process of sinking oil wells. We
learned from Mr. Heed, Superintendent
of the, works, that the prospect for oil
was flattering. On Saturday evening
they had reached the depth of one hun
dred and twenty feet. Eight feet from
the surface they struck rock and at the
depth or forty feet come upon a stratum
of most beautiful white sandstone, al
most as wliltc as marble. This stratum
was five or six feet in thickness, and
would pay well to quarry. There Is also
stratum 01 most excellent bulluin;;
stone just above this white stone, very
similar to the Massillon quarry. Pass
ing on through different ttrata, a very
hard blue rock is struck'at the dentil of
eighty' five feet, which is.filteent'eetin
thickness, After this comes a light col
ored sandstone. At the depth of one
undred and.ehrhtceu or twenty feet.a
substance aade its appearance which
looks like black soot. Jt will not mix
with the water, aud floats on the water.
Mr. Heed says it is mostoften found just
before oil is struck. The oil rock at this
place is supposed to lie between four
and five, hundred feet below the surface.
The old salt well was four hundred arid
and sixty-five feet deep. The company
arc leasing the lands all along the creek,
and expect to investigate and open out
whatever iney JiiHL.jCnaL.irnn. oiLnt
whatever it may be.

The Lake Erie. Wooser & Muskingum
Under the act of our General Assem
bly passed on 23rd of April, 1S72, town-
bhips arc authorized to construct rail
roads in our state. On the application
of one hundred tax-paying electors of
the township, the Trustees are required
to submit the question of building a
railroad through the township to the
qualified electors thereof, and If two-
thirds of the voters at such election, be
in favor of the construction of mcli
railroad, the Trustees Jiall Issue bonds
of such township to tne amount sped
fled in the application and notice, and
payable at the time therein stated, not
exceeding twenty years, at eight per
With these bonds it is made the duty
of the Trustees to proceed to construct
such railroad, or so much thereof as the
bonds so issued will enable them to
build, first giving notice of a public let
ting, and requiring them to let it to the
lowest responsible bidder.
. Tlte law throws guanls around the
use of the bonds. When issued they
are required to be placed in the bauds
of the Treasurer of State and only al
lowed to be delivered over to.tlie con
tractor at their par value upon estimate
of the engineer, approved by the Town
ship Trustees, for work actually done
or materials furnished.
The law also provides that 110 town
ship can issue bonds to a larger amount
than live per cent, of the aluation ot
tlte property thereof, nor provide for
the payment at maturity ot more than
one per cent, in auy one year.
The Trustees are to provide by taxa
tion on the toWiuhip for tiie payment
of eight per cent, interest on the bonds
thus issued, and also to make provision
for the payment of the bonds at matur
ity within twenty years from date of
When the railroad proposed to be con
structed by the Township Trustees is
let, and before completion, or after it is
completed, the Trustees are authorized
to lease or sell the road to any person or
company upon such person or company
iving satisfactory security to theTrus-
tees lor the fulfillment of the contract
of lease or sale; which lease or Bale
must be ratified by a majority of the
electors of the township at a vote called
for that purpose or be null and void.
It will be seen that under the law, the
township will own the road so built by
it, until it Is either leased or sold. As
the road will only he a township road
from one Hue of the same to the other,
it will not, therefore, be convenient for
each township to operate Its own road.
Each of these short lines is intended to
form a whole line of said road.
In the construction of these roads it
is intended to make a complete line from
Lake Erie, at Black River, to or near
the town of Coshocton, a distance of
90 miles, passing through the counties
of Lorain, Medina, Wayne, Holmes,
aud Cosl.ooton, and at the south end
connecting with railroads' reaching
through the great' coal fields of South
A company has been organized for
that purpose, called the Lake Erie,Woos
ter & Muskingum Valley Railway Com
pany. "It has made a complete survey
of the whole route, and has obtained a
line on which to build the road and up
on which the highest gradej either way,
docs not exceed fifteen feet to the mile.
The road will enter the coalfields of
Holmes county about twelve miles south
of Wooster and about sixty mUes from
the Lake, and pass through rich coal
mines as far as it goes.
"With siieli easy grsdeareaehinfr from
one of the best harbors ou the Lake,
with cheap and convenient facilities to
handle coal, lumber, and produce, to
immense coal fields within short dis
tance, it will make one of the best pay
ing railroads in the.State. It has been
louud that coal roads realize the largest
earnings of any other roads; aud, in
fact, about three-fourths of the earnings
of all the railroads are derived from.
It is proposed by the railroad com
pany above named to purchase from the
Trustees of each township along the
line between the points named, so much
of any railroad as it may build under
the law. It is also proposed by said
company to assume the payment of such
bonds as may be issued by townships,
or villages, and used in such construc
tion, at their maturity; and, also after
the completion, of the road to provide
for the payment of the interest of the
bonds as the same may become due.
This proposed as the consideration for
the purchase of said parts of the rail
road so made. The company will then
become the owner of the interest of the
townships therein, aud will proceed to
complete the whole line of the road.
It will be understood that the amount
of bonds Issued by the different town
ships will not build the whole road and
complete.it for business. A very large
amount of money must still be furnish
ed by the company.
Under this arrangement, in the sale
of the bonds so made by the Trustees of
the township, the tax-payers of the
township will only be. required to pay
taxes sufficient to pay -the interest on
the bonds while the road'is being built,
at the farthest.
It must also be born in mind that the
railroad when completed, and indeed
while it is being built with all its run
ning- machinery and fixtures' will be
valued and placed upon the duplicate
for taxation as other property, and thus
each township along the Hue will get
the benefit of the taxes It. will pay and
so far relieve taxation upon the other
propertyln the township.
It Is proposed to issue bonds in Hardy
township for the sum of fifty thousand
dollars, being a little less than live per
cent, of the valuation of the propcrty
of the township, and Prairie township
fifteen thousand dollars, being a little
less. than three per cent, ot the valua
tion of the property therein.
To pay the interest 011 the bonds in
Hardy township per year, will require
a levy of taxes of. four dollars 011 each
thousand dollars pf the valuation on
the duplicate, aud in Prairie township
a levy of the sum of two dollars and
fifty cents on each thousand dollars" val
Thus, by paying, this small sum by
way of taxes for two or three years, this
valuable improvement will be secured
It should also be remembered that in
all the townships along the line, and in
deed for a distance away from the line.
this railroad will greatly enhance the
value of the lands, as well as produce
It will also furnish cheap fuel and
cheap lumber and stone, articles so
much needed along the line. Connect
ing as this road will with four cast aud
west lines, u will afford cheap trans
portation for all kinds of products, as
well as convenient traveling connec
tions, either castor west.

THE SEWINC MACHINE,
Like all machines, when first made, and that
did the work fur which they were intended,
was rude, nncouth and imperfect, but the in
ventive genius of man, stimulated by protec
tion, has not only improved them, but the last
bavins: the advantage of the defects and im
perfections of the first, have devised and orig
inated ncwones, that tLTva2Ugether Utttr, more
iwj)lijitdt ntaUr and cheaper, so that we can
present to you a machine that, at a glancejjou
would pronounce perfect, At all eTcnts they
will do work superior to hand work, either for
neatness, durability and beauty. This we do
American Sewlnc Machine.
Which will do all work that is doneby any
Sewing Machine, and besides, simple and plain
not hard to understand, easy to run, (eitheron
account of their mechanical construction, or
not beinr complicated, or both,) seldom or nev
er out of order, and will last a lifetime.
The Splendid Mechanism
Of this machine, and the superior skill, work
manship and materials employed in Us con
struction, are a guaranty of accuracy, strength
and durability, and runs with such case (hat it
makes a woman laugh.
The shuttle, riding in lt carrier, is snujeci
to no wear, and the friction of a race" U
nvitiileil. The tensions ailmit of surbuice ad
justment, .and with such case nnd certainty,
that one or the great "difficulties met within
ordinary machine, is entirely avoided. Tbe
equal facility either light or heavy goods.
Thii being comparatively a new machine

of buying a machine they knew but little about
