and he is much sought after for
Commencement occasions and platform
addresses. His addross on the Message

tury has been especially prepared for
College men and will undoubtedly
prove one of tho most popular and en
tertaining htaid in Marietta for many

finished and polished orator, but un
derstands aujllenccs and how long it is
wlso for alectuter to hold his audience.

treatment tho Commencement Address
will bo in every w ay satisfactory.
I congratulate the friends of both in

equal if it docs not surpass that of any
previous Commencement Week,
To thesq exercises we cordially in
vito all interested and assure them
that we will do everything in our pow
er to mako tho entiro program one
which they will enjoy hearing and
which, they will delight frequently to
Thanking you for your courtesy and
kindness In printing tMis announce
ment, I remain, in behulf of tho Col
lege, Very gratefully yours,
John W. Simpson.
Tho New Strike.
There is considerable Interest being
taken In the new oil strike in Washing
ton county, Ohio, between Raven Rock
and Bens. Run station on this side of
tho river. Tho well is located about a
mile and a half out from the river.
The gravity of the oil in the new gush
er was tested yesterday and is found to
be 51 and 8-10ths, nearly as light as
tho oil in this field. A peculiar thing
about tho field is that one of the other
wails drilled, in sorao time ago near
this gusher and which is enow making
3 barrels of oil a day, produces oil that
is, so light it could not bo tcstad-.with
an ordinary apparatus used for testing
oil, and it is said to be lighter even
than the Moundsvillo oil, which is 03
The well started to flowing 20 barrels
an hour and yesterday evening it was
making 10 barrels an hour and seemed
to be settled down to that gait It has
only been drilled into tho sand be
tween two and three feet and may
show up very much better after being
drilled deeper, and then again it may
not show up any better and not pro
duce as much oil as it is now malting.
An old experienced oil producer was
down to see the well yesterday and
said to a Reviewreporter this morning
that in his judgement the well was act
ing more like the Wick gushers do
than anything else he could liken it to.
This- well may be the tapping of a
small pool of oil or it may be the open
ing up of a long extention south of the
Sistersville pool, but all of this is at
present guess work, and nothing will
definitely settle the question as to
what the pool really is but the drill.
All the land around the field has been
leased up and several new wells will
be started at on,ce. Oil Review.
WHAT THE FLOWERS MEAN.
Tho scarlet fuchsia is symbolic ot
good tasto. There in nothing prettier
than a bed of these flowers, the bril
liancy of their hue being admirably set
off by tho green of their foliage.
The American elm has been (sug
gested as an emblem of patriotism.
Several historic elm trees are men
tioned in our revolutionary annals, and
from one of these the idea probably
Tho cedar is an emblem of Immor
tality, the symbol being suggested by
ita evergreen foliage. It Is said to have
been so regarded by the Jews a thousand
years before tho Christian era.
Tho white carnation is regarded in
L'ngland as an emblem of disdain. This
idea was probably suggested by tho up
right habit of the flower, which nods
and waves haughtily in the breeze.
Tho daffodil is a symbol of chivalry.
It was once a favorite flower in Fiance,
and at one time a fashion pre ailed of
gentlemen wearing bunches of daffodils
in their hats with their plumes.
Bombay is now known as tho "Man
chester of India."
At least 5720,000,000 worth of British
property is always on the sea.

Tho "Fort Sidney Carta: of Forty
Thieves" About Cone.
Purkersburg. May 25, After a three
year's chase by Government officers
John Broy, who is accused with being
tho chief of the notorious gang, famil
iarly known in tho Ohio valley as the
"Fort Sidney gang of Forty Tbtoyes,"
has beeu captured. A telegram tb
Detectlvo J. R. Mehen, ex-United States
Deputy Marshal, states that ho is in
custody at Evansville, Ind.
Broy is badly wanted by tho United
States Court in Ohio and West Virginia.
Ho is accused of being the chief of tho
worst gang of postofflce thieves, burg
lars and highway robbers in this sec
tion since the time of the notorious
Murrel. Several years ngo special
officers were sent out to. break up tho
gang, which had robbed postottlces,
stores and individuals indiscriminate
ly from Marshall county to tho Big
Sandy along the Ohio.
Tho robbery of the St. Marys post
office was the first one to offer a serious
clow to tho gang, which in three,
months had robbed postofflces and
stores at Dutcher, Cockransyille and
half a dozen places in Ohio. At Friend
ly three stores were entered- in one
night, and at St Marys, Ravenswood,
Ripley and other places many mer
Captain Mehen and Sheriff Reynolds,
together with several United States
officers, got onto the track of the
thieves and succeeded in clinching the
crime tb the Ft. Sidney gang.
The name was received from the lo
cation of their headquarters about 8
miles from St Marys. A part of tho
gang was chased down the river and
eaptured-in a shanty-boat, which was
filled with stolen property, including
drygoods, stamps, jewelry and other
stuff. The boat, goods and men were
From clews secured on the boat
three men named Bailey and three
others wero run down before the gang
got word and scattered. Eleven were
sent to the penitentiary. The search
was continued and others were gath
ered in, but the leader, John Broy,
could not be located.
Broy was desperate and as elusive as
an eel. Half a dozen times, when the
officers were sure of him he had slipped
through their fingers. He will be
brought back to answer the charges
Reception Riven by Mrs. Samuel llurt.
Mrs. Samuel Hart entertained very
handsomely Tuesday afternoon and
evening at her home on Putnam St.
Her doors were thrown open from four
until eight to her hosts of lady friends.
The occasion was one of unusual bril
liancy. The graciousness of the host
ess, the rooms of this home made moie
attractive than 'usual with quantities
of smilax, red and pink rose buds, tho
charming assistants, and the gay
spring attire of those fortunate enough
to be present, each contributed its
share. Miss Rebekah Nye asked the
guests into the dining room where
Misses Marie and Helen Buell, Miss
Katharine Nye, Miss May Riley and
Miss Alice Eells were in charge and
dispensed most bountifully ices, cakes,

What Will It Count?
Misfortune Irom the cradle has cast her pall
O er the pathway of many an honest man,
And the world rejoices to iee him fall
Rather than lend him a helping hand.
He may be honest, kind hearted and pure.
As It lies In one's nower to be.
The world will discard him If he chance to be
'Tls a matter of money, you see.
Tls a matter of mansions and terrace and
And the cut of the clothes that he wears,
And the banquets be gives and the style he
It is not by the name that he beats
No poektts are made in the long white shroud,
No sente of touch In a pulseless hand.
Oh how can you take It beyond the clouds
The wealth you store In the present land
Then whit will your mansions and millions be
Thou hast pround God's poor these years to
You will take at death what you brought at
And that will be nothing, I thank tho Lord
