Three Hundred Miles of Oil Pipe.
The system of transporting oil, by
means of pipesiaid over moderate dis
tances, has been iv practice in the oil
districts of Pennsylvania fur several
years, proving a convenient means of
carriage ami a profitable investment
for large amounts of capital. While
the success of the scheme has thus
been demonstrated as applied tocopar
ativcly small sections of country, it
remains yet to be determined whether
the project can be carried out on a
gigantic scale over more extended
space. With the late discoveries in
Butler county, Pennsylvania, it ap
pears that the* interest in the plan, sug
gested some years ago, has revived,
and the idea of transporting oil
through Iron pipes, from Tltusville,
over tlie Alleghanies to Philadelphia
on the sea board, v distance °» 260
miles, is now exciting considerable at
Mr. G. \V. Piatt, an engineer quite
well known throughout the country
from the fact of having superintended
the construction of the Holley water
works system in various cities, gives,
in a letter to the tHtueviile Herald,
detailed specifications for the con
struction of a huge conduit of this
description. He considers the scheme
entirely practicable, and estimates its
cost at' s 4,4oti, 150. It is proposed to
lay a east iron six-inch pipe, in a bee
line between the points above named,
which at one locality id' its mute will
be 8,000 feet above the sea level; 40
miles of pipe will be allowed for undu
lations, so that Ihe tube w ill, from end
to end, measure fully .100 miles. Its
contents will be 87,009 barrels of oil,
and it is asserteil that there will be no
more difficulty in insuring a How
through the bore than there now is in
the water mains of London or Chi
cago, both of which systems each ag
gregate 3000 miles in length. Between
Titusvllle and the summit, a distance
uf 40 miles, eight pumping stations
will be established, so as to relieve un
due strain on the pipe. Each pump
will have to raise the oil 300 feet. Wa
ter by the Hulley plan of piston
pumps is elevated to this height,
and the friction of eight miles (tin
space between stations), is overcome
at the rate uf a million gallons per
twenty •four hours, which is equivalent
to 23,000 barrels of oil fluid measure,
The cost of tlte live pumps, machinery,
etc., is estimated at £50,000; in ad
dition to which, tbere most be as
many tanks of gallons capacity,
each raiting $75,000, and dually v
huge ioo,immj gallon resivoir, worth

Mr. Piatt enters iuto di tail regard
uig W itlou with the tubs and other
drawbacks ivhlcit, However, he propo
se" * . ..u.iute ai onoe by establishing,
if noces.-iuiy inure pumping Btatiousj
and Ihe finally concludes that 128,000
barrels may be delivered every twenty
four hours, at ten cents per barrel.
He figures up the profits as follows:
The pipe twould deliver 7,3iM1,(HMl bar
rels ot oil per annum, which at a
transportation rate of 56 cents per bar
rel, would yield $3,656,000. The cost
uf running, together with interest ou
capital, amounts to $412,717, giving
therefore, a profit per annum of $2,237
--738, supposing the line to run at its
full capacity. The pipe could be
thoroughly tested with water and
thus leakage obviated. It is believed
that, it would be as ludestructible as
an ordinary water main. The loss
from other sources of waste during
transport, it is further considered,
would not be so great as is now the
case in the regular tank cars. —[Scien-

One of the most extraordinary things
in the world is the conduct of a hen

safely out of the way. Ami if she is
on one side of the road, she Immedi
ately dashes into the centre, and brings
you up again, while the cold sweat
forms on your back at the thought of
the damages. And it is a little singu
lar that while you are confident you
never saw a hen run over, nor ever
heard of such a thing, yet no number
of trials can keep back the perspira

from drawing up your burse to the
