Theie are tn.tny things about a large
city which make It appeor a veritablu
Gulden of Etleu to the unsophisticated
rustic. Distance lend-, enchantment,
and so it happens that country folks
very often view a metiopolis, and espe
cially Chicago, tlnough the rosy haze
which the imagination tluows around
it. It is this rural ciedulily on which
a certain class of tho ba-er elements in
a city's population thil"e. They turn
the longing of the ignorant country
swain or innocent village maiden for
the supposed snlendors of city life to
tin Ir own vllo account, and hardly a
day parses that docs not chronicle "tho
w reels uf smie such gullible !-'o-ple.
Tho iccoids of the de
tective ollle.es in all the large cities are
full of. such eases. Tuore is, however,
one manner of c.itching thtwo anal
gudgeons that seems 111010 lopioheiisi
bio and dastardly than any other, and
that is the means by which innocent
girls are inveigled Iiom tueir country
bonus to tho city on iiretense of pre)
vldiug lucrative employment for
them, congenial to their tastes and
, 'Uieie has been an unusually largo
numbcr-of such girls landed high and
dry on tlnir anival In Chicago during
the present month. Thu police know
of many, tho gaudy females who keep
alluring palaces of sin know of more,
and the theatrical managers and
agencies know or still more. Only
.NCsterday a theatrical agent, Mr.
Flunk M. Link, called tho attention

Wheeling, W . V11., KntcrnrUc.
The McGuigan gas-well, the light
from which can lie seen from the lop
of Wheeling hill, is the pioneer gns
well In this vicinity. rt led to all of
thuotheis now making such 11 tin moil
in this valley. It was sunk
for oil, not gas, and the great
gaseous ie-erolr una tapped una
wares. Just tlneuniilesncarer us the
Buchanan well was sunk, and is now
the deepc-.l well in the woild, having
icnched 4.800 feet and is still going
down. When 11 depth of about 3,000
feet had been 1 cached, the toojs biokc
and wete left thcie, and for some time
the well was deseileil. Then a
new concern took hold of it
and is now igorouslv drilling
for the greasy fluid. The rope biok'e
in March, and the cable, bdw eon 4 1)00
an15,0001eet in length and weighing
several tons, paitcd .several bundled
feet from the top, and all cflbit to
c itch hold of it uud diaw it out with
the t-reat lion shalt or drill at its
lower end failed. Tlie workmen weie
then discharged, and the pub
licsupposed the well abandoned. Su
perintendent Crocker had no thought
ot ciulttMig tho work. Additional
tools were proem ed, and on tho 11th
liiit woik was risunied. The Aiell,
which Is dry, was filled with water
to assist in floating tho cable
a proper iiistiument was in
serted, and the iopu was caught
and lifted out. It was supposed that
after getting the tope that a "sucker
lod" would have to ho sent down to
loosen it fiom the drill at the bottom
as that was fast and could not be lilted
with tho weakened tope. Fortunately
the rone cut iUelf oil' where it was at
tached to the shaft, and thus saved
a peat deal of trouble. Tho next
thing to do was to remove the water
from tho well nnil iimn..in,r ,,. ....
sorted to. when neaily n barrel of ven
due crude oil was obtained. The well
Is cued to the depth of twelve or four
teen bundled feet and is dry.

which will be done in a day or
two, n spear" will bo sent down after
the dti I. And no dilllcttlty is antici
pated in bringing it to the suiface.
When this is accomplished the work
of deepening Uio well will ho re com
menced. Mr. Crocker states that the
machinery he has on the ground will
enable him logo 500 feet deeper, and
by Iiicren-ine; Us power ho could go to
the depth of 7,000 feet, but he hopes to
reach nil in paying quantities at 11
small additional depth.
