Questions and Answers.
A rented a farm from it for three
years from March, 1S94. The contract
says that if U should die A must give
up the farm at the expiration of that
year. B dies in July, 1S95, but A sow
ed !10 acres of wheat, using fertilizer,
without orders. In November the farm
was sold to C and A has to give one
third of the grain to C. Must C pay
jor one third of the fertilizer? A. S.
It is a matter that would depend en
tirely on the terms of the settlement
with C. From your statement I do not
see that A is entitled to any of the
grain, as he knew and agreed that his
time would expire March 1.

A owes B $100 for which B holds A's

property, took and retained possession

The organization of an oil well work
ers' union is in progress in the Indiana
field and one thousand laborers in that
industry are said to be promptly taking
up with the idea. The union is bene
volent in its purposes, its object being

to strikes and hopes to further the in

have in common.
The Lima branch of the Western Oil

proving a good producer. Coghlin re
fused to sell and his nartner insisting

An electrical storm passed over Brad

day night causing considerable damage
in the vicinity of Simpson and Davis
City. At the former place two rigs
and four tanks containing about S00
barrels of oil were destroyed by fire.
At Davis City, a rig and one tank of
100 barrels of oil were burned. The
property belonged to the South Penn
Oil company. Tuesday three rigs at
Dayis City were struck by lightning,
but prompt action on the part of the
men who were in the vicinity saved
the property frotn "being destroyed.
Some new work is being done, in the
shallow territory of the Big Kate dis
trict, Ohio. The pool was opened up
by the striking of the Big Kate well
on the Reed farm in the early spring
of 1894. The well had an initial pro
duction of 500 barrels and made a good
record for thirty days. Last summer
the well had declined to 8 or 10 barrels
a day, when it was shot and unfortu
nately spoiled, and all that remains to
mark the spot of the famous spouter is
the old conductor. This well led to
the discovery of the Sand Hill and
Waverly pools. The new developments
here at present are located south and
west from the Big Kate on Big run.
