stable, on suspicion that he was wanted
at Columbus as a deserter from the
regular army. Price was taken to jail, but
released again after being held a short time,

Another attempt at burglary was made at
Yellow Springs Friday night, the dry goods

the one attacked. The robbers cut a large
hole in tbe back door, but for some reason
did not enter. They either met with an ac
cident that deterred tbera from goin; farther,
as blood wa3 found on and arouad tbe door,
or some noise frightened then away. The
supposition is that one of them got a hand or
arm badly cut while using the tools in work
ing an entrance, and this caused a precipitate
flight. The citizens are all worked up over
the matter, and nave offered $100 reward for
the detection of the rascals. Tbe town coun

THE GRAB GA3IE.
Prominent North Klde Lady Assaulted by
Two Thieve, at lllgli uoo, on aiarket
The wife of County Auditor O. F. Serviss,
who lives on the Xorth Side, Factory street
extension, came over to the city Saturday
and made several purchases, carrying her
pocket-book in a satchel suspended on one
arm. Crossing Market street bridge tbe lady
noticed two strange young men sitting idly
on the iron railing of tbe foot-way, and both
observed her closely as she passed them; but
Baid nothing. On the return, with packages in
arms, the same pair were waiting at the
bridge, and as Mrs. Serviss approached
crossed to tbe side ol the bridge she would
take. The lady noted the action, but thought,
in such a public place and in broad daylight,
no harm could be intended and so kept on her
way. Just as she was passing the men they
made a grab for her satchel, and one of them,
seizing it, attempted to pull it loose. The
lady held to her properly and screamed at tie
top of her voice, which alarmed a colored
boy in Frey's quarry, near by, and he began
to yell for the police, which caused the two
foot-pads to drop their plunder and take to
their heels, running up the bill, both escap
ing. Considering the fact that it was mid
day and in" a much traveled thoroughfare, the
attempted robbery was one of the boldest and
inost desperate occurring here in a long time.
The police were not informed urtil late in
the afternoon, when, of course, there was
small chance of finding the thieves. Their
description was'taken, however.

The latent Addition to tlie Manufacturing
Interest's of !prlnc;tleld.
Mr. E W. Rcss, who has recently added
another large manufactutiag establishment to
the manufacturing interests of the Champion
City, has returned here from a trip to the
Eist, and will now probably remain here. A
reporter of The G-OBK-KEruBUC met him in.
the Arcade office last cvening.anJ had a very
interesling conversation with the gentle
man in regard to the new factory. Mr. Ross
sid: '-The impression seems to rrevail in
Springfield that 1 am engaged in the manu
facture of paper mill machinery. This is a
mistake, although I can readily account for
it. Up to last summer wc did make paper
mill machinery in connection with our other
products, consisting of saw mills, barrel ma
chinery and machine knives, and we also did
a large business in shafting and gearing.
Ojr feed cutters, however, formed the greater
part of our business, and v e have, therefore,
determined to drop everything except this.
We will, in future, confine ourselves exclu
sively to the manufacture of feed
cutters, and the superiority of our
machines is such that the general
standard of excellence in Springfield machin
ery is not going to sufler. We will manu
facture the ensilage cutters, paper mill straw
cutters, feed cutters, sorghum and sugar cane
cutters. This ensilage 6ystem is the process
of preserving green feed for winter or dry in
the summer, by placing it in air-tight pits,
similar to the process of preserving fruit.
This sysiem is a matter of great economy to
tbe stock raiser. Tn o tons of bay is a good
yield per acre, but 33 to 40 tons ot good fod
der can be raised per acre at a cost varying
from 80 cents to $1.20, delivered in the bins
or pits. The feed cutter that we manufac
ture is the prxess of cutting dry feed. We
make a large line of machines, varying in
price from $22 to $1,000, and our largest fire
sizes are larger than any other machine of the
kind made in tbe world, Our largest ma
chine is capable of cutting twenty tons of
ensilage per hour. We stand at the head iu
the cutter business, and do a larger business
than any other manufacturer in the came
One of the special features of the Ross cut
ters is that they have the upward cut, while
every oth"r machine of the kind in tbe world
uses the downward cut. Our agencies extend
from California to Maine and as far Sonth as
Texas, and we have done considerable busi-
nss in the Sandwich Islands, India, Aus
tralia and Japan. We have an extensive ex
hibit ot a full line of our machines in run
ning order in the New Orleans Expostion in
the dairy department, Tbe exhibit covers 1,000
square feet, and is near the exhibit of the
Foas Manutacturiug Company. We have
furnished fully three-fourths of all the ensi
lage cutters that have been sold.
"We formerly built the Cummings ma
chine but when the patents run out 1 invent
ed the machines which we are now manufact
uring. The first patent on these machines was
issued in 18S2; a large number have been
taken out since, and there are others still
By reason of changing to this line as an
exclusive specialty, the volume of business
done by the firm will be considerably dimin
ished in the beginning, but tbe business will
be pushed with all the energy possible. Mr.
Ross says te thinks specialty lines are essen
tial to success, a3 a man can learn more about
one certain thing than several, and be thinks
by devoting all his time and attention to it
that the business will grow rapidly.
The cutter business is a little diSerent from
the manufactnre.of other agricultural imple
ments, in that owing to the great extent of
territory and the d'fferent climates in the
Unite 1 States, the cutters are needed at all
times during the year, as in the East, North,
Wist and South, the machines are required in
the summer, fall and winter months respect
ively. In response to an inquiry as to how he is
impressed with bis new location, Mr. Ross
said: "We spent eighteen months in can
vassing tbe Uni'ed States for a location, and
after all our researches, we came to the con
clusion that Springfield is vastly superior to
any of the other cities visited. On my visits
to the large towns and railroad centers ot
the central western states, I found a great
deal of vacant manufacturing property that
was a drag on the market. In some instances,
I was offered the property for tbe simple
value of the land, and in other instances for
the price of the brick. We also had several
cash bonus oners in different cities, but we
declined all of these in favor of
Springfield, without anything of that sort.
We have got enough ot trying to
advertise the town in which our shops are lo
cated and we know that we will not have to
do this here. On the other hand we expect
tbe mere fact of our being located in Spring
field to be an advertisement and help to us.
Springfield has a world-wide reputation as a
manufacturing point for agricultural ma
chinery, and this fact alone will be of much
benefit to us. We shall bring with us from
Ful.on a number of oar workmen who are
thoroughly conversant with our machines.
We have been preparing for removal tor
some time and have manufactured a large
number of machines ahead to make up for
Men are now at work with dynamite re
moving the crust from tbe surface of the
earth so as to enable them to begin
excavating for tba new foundry.
This building will be 53x05
feet inside, with a wing 25x30, and two
stories bizb. It will be fitted up with a
Blakeney cupola. The buildiog will be push
ed to compleiion as rapidly as possible. In
the meantime tc work ot fitting up the
main building with new machinery, shafting,
icwillbs carried on, and Mr. Rjss thinks
all will be ia readiness tor operation some
time in May. This miin' building, former
ly tbe steel works ot Wbileley, Fassler k
Kelly, is much larger than it looks from
the outside. It is 150 feet long by CO feet
wide, and six stories high, including the
liaseuient. The engine and boiler room is
45x55, and the tlacksraith shop 35x55. A
large 11C Lorse-pjwer Corliss engine will
furnish the power. Tbe building is provided
with water works throughout. A railroad
track runs throuch the building and
cars can be loaded from the elevators. Mr.
Ross is delighted with the building, and says
be c uld not have built one that would be
better adapted to their purpose.
He will soon remove his family here. Mr.
Ross is a young man, but is the sole proprie
tor of this large concern, which manufac
tures under thi name of E. W. Ross k Co.
He has been in the business for twelve years
himself, and there is not a part of any of the
machines that be does not thoroughly under
stand. He is the patentee of all of them,
and be makes his own drawings of every
piece that i3 made. He is full of life, mergy
and ambition, and will doubtless be a credit
to the manufacturing city ol Springfield.

A Hotel Which Keratin the Famous
hole Oil Farm.
Bv tlio tcarinjr down of the old Ditn
cati'liouse, at Oil City, says a Brail fonl,
la., telegram to the New York Ttmcs,
the la, relic of Pitliole's palmy iK-ns
has lh-eii removed. Tlio Iioumj was
Imilt iu the spring of lHC) by C. V.
Duncan, and co-t $10,000. Duncan
was a Scotchman, who became intend
ed with John, George, and Abraham
Prather iu the purchase of thoHolmdeu
farm at Pithole. from which, on an iu-ve-tmentof
$30,000, they made 8 1.000,
000 each in a few months. The Holm
ilem farm was the pioneer oil territory
of Pithole. Tho farm belonged to tho
father-in-law of John Pralher, who,
with his two brother-. Kent a small
country Morn in tluMillage of Plumer.
A wild-cat oil company, known as tho
United States Petroleum company, and
organized as hundreds of others were
formed in tlioe days for tho .solo pur
pose of dUpo-ing of its stock, the idea
of actually limlinc; oil not being enter
tained by "any of its protectors leased a
small portion of the Iiolmdcu farm on
which to ba-e their claims and to pro
ceed with drilling operations. The
Prather brothers belieted they might
make some money on the strength of
the work being done by the oil com
pany, anil secured the refusal of the re
mainder of the Holmden farm forsi.ty
days. If thev concluded to buv at tho
end of that time, they were to pay
-5,000 for the property. Duncan was
then speculating in oil iu the Pittsburg
market, and to have the benefit of his
seriees in securing a purcha-er for the
Holmden farm they admitted him into
the scheme as an equal partner.
Wliile lltincan amt John Prather were
in Philadelphia looking for a purchaser
for the farm, the drill at the United
well struck the oil vein, and the well
Ix-gan to How at the rate of three hun
dred barrels a day. The region went
wild with excitement. There was no
railroad or telegraphic connection with
Pitt-burg at that time, and George and
Abraham Prather, knowing that the
Holmden farm was.now worth $1,000,
000 at least, were rendered nearly crazy
at the thought that their brother John
might sell the farm before thev could
get word to him. George Fratiier hur
ried to Oil City and telegraphed to
John, but could get no answer. Ho
then mounted his horse and rode to
Pittsburg without stopping to eat or
-leep. From there he took the cars to
Philadelphia, where he met his brother
and Duncan at the Girard hou-e. They
were about ready to clo-e tho sale of
the farm to James MeCreery for $100,
XX). The news from Pithole. stopped
nil negotiations in that direction. The
Prattlers sold one-sixteenth of their
farm for $l-.",000. The sale took place
the day before the sixty days in which
thev had the refusal were tip.
When thev went to pay Holmden tho
$2o,000 for Ids farm, Mrs. Holmden re
fused to sign the deed tinle-s she was
paid $5,000 iu gold. Gold was then at
a heavy premium and very scarce. A
small army of men was started through
the country to collect the gold at any
price, and tho amount was raised iu
duo season. In two months Pithole
was producing 50,000 barrels of oil a
day and had a population of 15,000.
Duncan built the splendid hotel which
became so famous throughout the coun
try. He al-o built a Presbyterian
church iu Pithole which co-t him $25,
000. Kventuallv he sold his interest iu
the Iiolmdcu farm for $1,000,000, and,
elo-iugont all other enterprises, return
ed to Scotland, where ho died in l&CS.
He evidently had not heard that Pithole
was then but a deserted ruin, for he be
queathed $25,000 to the church he had
founded in the place.
The Prather boys remained iu Pithole
until the collapse came, and each left
the region with $:5,000,000. The United
States Oil company started as a wild
cat adventure, made the fortunes of all
who w ere connected with it. Tho Dun
can hou-e was purchased by Oil City
parties, taken down, and removed to
Oil Oitj where it was put iu its orijri
nal form, and was for years the princi
pal hotel of tho oil metropolis. It was
abandoned a few j ears ago, audliecame
a dilapidated rookery, which has at
last bean taken down and sold for fire
wood. Its original register, bearing
the signatures of men famous in this
country and Europe, great actors, cat
italists, and stateMueu, is now in the
possession of a citizen of Tittsburg.
Grccnougb. Green Enough.
For tho last forty years and more peo
ple have laughed at the cold air and
naked form of Georgo Washington as
he sits in marble at the east front of the
Capitol. He has been tho butt of all
the jokes of Senators, Representatives,
strangers, and guides for the last four
decades. Still this statue has a lonjrcr
' history than anv other at the Capitol.
Jt was ordered by congress at me cntt
of Andrew Jackson's first term, and it
took eight years for Horatio Greenough
to make it. He did tho work in Flor
ence, Italy, and he made tho statue in
a sitting posture, instead of pedestrian,
as the act of Congress demanded. It
was designed, you know, to stand iu
the center of the rotunda insido tho
Well, -when it was completed in 1840.
the next question was how to get it from
Italy to America. Congress haggled
over it for some time and finally sent a
man-of-war to bring it from Genoa to
Washington. In tho meanwhile, ilr.
Greenough had started it on to Genoa.
It weighed twelve tons, and it took
twenty-two yoke of oxen to haul it. As
it went on its way through Italy it is
said that tho peasants thought it tho
imago of somo saint, and that hero and
there they knelt and crossed their
breasts as'it went by. When it got to
Genoa it was found that it was so largo
that it could not be gotten through tho
hatchway of tho man-of-war which
was to carry it to Washington, and a
merchant vessel had to be chartered.
At last it arrived at tho Washington
Navy-Yard, and Congress was horrified
to see that their pedestrian statue was
sitting in a chair, and that it was nude
to the waist. Henry A. Wi-e then said:
"The uiau does not live, and uever did
live, who saw Wa-hington without his
Miilt," and the country applauded tho
sentiment. But the navy-yard is not
tho Capitol, and it cost $5,000 to bring
the statue from it to the rotunda.
When it was gotten to the Capitol doors
it was found that the statue, like the
painting of the Vicnr of Wakefield's
family, was too large to go through.
The masonry had to bo cut away and
the door enlarged. When it was finally'
put in it is said tho floor began to sink,
and a pedestal had to be built under it
to support it. It was soon found, how
ever, that the rotunda was no place for
it, and finally, after a number of re
movals, it was taken to where it now
stands iu tho bitter, cold, bleak air of
the Capitol plateau where the winds
can howl out Washington's agony as
they go tearing by, and where his naked
ness has "the boundless arch of the sky"
for a canopy. Originally the statue
was to havecost $5,000. It has already
cost $44,000, and this sum is consider
ably increased at everv removal.

benefit I received from the ue of your
medicines, Pekcha and Manalix.
One bottle of each placed me square on

which confined me to my bed, nnd then

Mrs. Ellen May nard, Oswego, Pottei

your Pekun'a and M.NAltir are doing a
miracle. I do not take nearly so much

Joseph Thomas, East Brady, Pa,
writes : " I have used your Peruxa and

of tSSo I was so bad that I could scarcely

Mr. C. II. Harris, New Vienna, Ohio,
writes: "Our little girl was paralyzed
at thirteen months old, and we resorted
to everything we could hear of for relief,
but she appeared to get but little better.
Hearing of Perdxa we concluded to try
it, and will say it lias done her a great
deal of good the first bottle apparently

nervousness in other cases on other per
sons and found it a success. For general
debility, and in fact for any disease, we
don't think any thing else can at all com

bottles, and our house is never without
