The Indiana Oil Company and Its Offer
This company owns 1,040 acres of Califor
nia oil lands.
Its capital stock is Si, 200,000.
The shares are $1.00 each.
They are fully paid and nonassessable.
Shares to the amount of $500,000 are offered
for the purpose of field development.
About one-fourth the amount has been sold
in the last month.
FOR A SHORT
TIME ONLY IS
YOU WILL NEVER BUY STOCK FOR LESS. PROSPECTS WILL NEVER
BE BETTER. AN INVESTMENT WORTHY EVEN OF YOUR SAVINGS
The purchaser of each share of stock will
receive back in cash the full amount paid for
it before any dividends are paid.
We 'own an interest in a pipe line running
to a railroad two miles distant. This means
available transportation without extra cost.
Our output for the first year has already
been sold by contract at a good price.
Why the offer is Good.
The field is inexhaustible. The oil sands
of the proved field, in which our land is lo
cated, are known to be 500 feet deep.
More than 500 wells have been drilled on
lands within a radius of two miles. No well
drilled has failed, and none has been drilled
which did not produce paying1 oil.
Within three-quarters of a mile is a gusher,
producing 1,000 barrels of oil daily.
The lands in the Kern river field are laden
with valuable deposits of asphaltum. It is ob
tainable, and of a superior quality, on the.
Within six rods of our land are three wells,
each producing- 300 barrels of oil daily. The
usual yield is 300 to 600 barrels daily. A con
servative estimate is that four such wells will
put stock on a dividend-drawing basis.
Jn Expert s ejpimon
It has been absolutely demonstrated to every capa
ble and experienced oil man, who has investigated the
subject, that the proved oil belt of this Kern field
comprises a formation of such peculiar and hitherto
unknown character that EVERY well drilled within
its boundaries is ABSOLUTELY SURE OP STRIK

WHERE A FAILURE HAS OCCURRED.

Corrpondence of th Indianapolis Journal.
LONDON, July 20. I was traveling on a
privilege ticket," which was probably. In
the eyes of the guard, an additional reanon
why I should shed a shilling In his willing
palm, so he hung on my footsteps and vol
unteered quantities of unsolicited Informa
tion. The "privilege- ticket" Is a British rail
way institution. It takes the place of the
trip pass as issued by the passenger de
partments of American railways. On the
Great Eastern route, the Caledonian, tha
London & Southwestern and the Southeast
ern & Chatham (which connects with the
famous Dover-Calais channel steamers) the
American form of personal passes is used.
But on the London & Northwestern they
Issue an order (also personal and not trans
ferable) which you present at the booking
office, where you receive in exchange for It
a litle pasteboard ticket like those used be
tween way points on American railways.
When the order calls for ,a round trip you
receive a ticket of the same size about one
and a quarter inches by one inch of which
one-half constitutes the claim to transpor
tation in each direction. The return half
of this ticket Is not so large as the coupon
for your seat in an American theater.
I had left the London & Northwestern
train at Bletchley In order to change for
Cambridge. My guard, who?e run ended at
Bletchley. had been disappointed In his over
tures for a tip en route, and he walked with
me on the platform and talked to me
about the line in a very respectful and
wholly unobtrusive way, but with his eyes
always following my hand on the chance
that it might be going after that shilling. I
had no objection to parting with the shill
ing, but there is a natural prejudice in the
mind of a man who has traveled with the
dignified conductors of the Pennsylvania or
the New York Central or the Wabash or
the Boston & Maine to giving a gratuity to
the man in charge of a railroad train. But
the tip, however small, never goes amiss on
the English railway. I gave a porter at
Leamington the equivalent of 1 cent, and he
touched hl3 cap and said. "Theng-j-u-zur,"
as though it was very welcome.
CATERING TO TOURISTS.
About the onlv ihlng this guard said
which impressed n-?, was that the road
was doing more every year to cater to the
tastes of the increasing army of American
tourists and that, therefore, it was putting
"corridor trains" on its principal routes.
It is true that the London and Northwest
ern and Its connection the Caledonian, with
thdr terminal on the steamer landing at
Liverpool and their special trains in con
nection with the Cur.ard and White Star
lines get most of the American travelers,
who come to England and Scotland. And
It Is also Jtrue that they have many com
forta approximating those of American
railway lines. Yet there Is still no com
parison In point of comfort between Ameri
can and Er.gliJh ruilways, and mht of the
comforts which English travelers now en
Joy have been bought from the United
There Is. to sure, one p.iitl'ular In
wnkh the American rad Is Inferior to flu
Enll.-h. 1 have n-'ver been oi an Araric:n
railroad who? car.- rode with th- ymooih-
ness of tho cars on the London & North
western, the Caledonian or the London and
Southwestern roads. This is partly due to
the roadbed and partly, I should say, to
the construction of the cars. Again, the
conditions under which the English roads
are run make it possible to lessen the num
ber of stops made by through night trains
so that the jolt of starting and stopping
does not continually arouse you from your
sleep. On the run between London and
CJlasgow, only two stops are made and the
motion of the cars is so steady that you
sleep all through the night almost as com
fortably as you would In your hotel room.
Night traveling is robbed of half its ter
rors under these conditions.
Sleeping cars are a comparatively novel
Institution on English roads. They differ
wholly from the familiar Pullman car and
in general plan are more, like the com
partment cars which run on the Pennsyl
vania between Pittsburg and New York,
on the Wabash between St. louis and Chi
cago, and on the Burlington between Chi
cago and St. Paul. But in point of decora
tion and equipment, they are far Inferior to
these splendid structures. The method of
allotting space In the English cars Is also
If you. want to make the night run from
London to Glasgow, you telephone the
Euston station and ask them to reserve
what berths you need. Two persons of the
same sex or a man and his wife can occupy
a double compartment; for Individual
travelers there are single compartments.
METHODS OF TRAVEL.
The clerk at the station tells you that
space has been reserved for you. When you
reach the station you buy at the booking
office a sleeping-car ticket, for which you
pay five shillings a little less than I1.1S.
This ticket is good for a berth anywhere
on the line on any train in any direction.
It is like the general admission ticket to
a show. You go with this ticket to the train
platform. Anyone is admitted to the plat
form. Here you find a train of cars marked
"third-class" and "sleeping cars." The
third-class passengers travel as did passen
gers of all classes a few years ago In
compartments having no sleeping accomo
dations, but provided on demand with rugs
and pillows, on payment of a rental of six
pence for each article.
On tho side of your sleeping car hangs a
card on which are written opposite the let
ter representing each compartment the
name of the person for whom it has been
reserved. Thus it is possible to learn the
names of your fellow-travelers if thev have
given them correctly. The attendant is a
white man there are few negroes In Eng
land or on the continent. He takes you to
your compartment and stows your lug
gage away. Your bed is already made. Then
he leaves you and you do not see him again
till morning, unless you have occasion to
summon him. In the morning he will
serve you a cup of tea.' without which no
Englishman is able to begin the day.
The bed In your compartment funs at
right angles with the window. I found
rrine short, but 1 am a little taller than
the av-rage man. 1 should say the mat
tresses were not s thick as in a Pullman
car. The covering is about the same. There
are, of course, no curtains to shut out the
fresh air. On the other hand there are few
means of ingress for it. There is a ventila
tor at the top of the door and another
above the window. The windows, of course,
can be opened, but they seldom are.
Ventilators by the way are the common
means of renewing air in an English car
and !n one of them I saw a very ordinary
type In the roof, something like the circular
Clamper of a stove, which was labeled and
declared to bo somebody's "patent air ex
tractor." But to return to the compart
ment. It is lighted by electricity from the
roof. In some cars this llht can b shut
off by switch keys, easily reached from
your berth after you have retired. In others
you can cut oft the light only by drawing
the green cloth curtain around the globe.
This is effective, but wasteful of the cur
rent and lamp. In front of the window of
your compartment. Is a wash stand with a
lid. Raising this lid draws Into place on
each side dark green curtains which act
as "splashers." You get running water by
I resslng a metal knob. There Is one other
convenience under your couch, but the
"lavatory" as they call it in England, is
nt one end of the car and is reached by
THE CORRIDOR CAR.
The "corridor car" Is now In general use
on all through trains on first-class roads
In England. It has created a curious
democracy. The old-style coaches on En
glish railroads have In many cases first,
second and third-class compartments side
by side. This la obviously for convenience
in making up a train. On the corridor car
two and sometimes three clashes open on
the same passage or corridor, so that th'j
only difference between them is in the qual
ity of the upholstering and the company
one finds. The latter consideration is tho
strongest in determining one to travel first
or second class. Second class, by the way.
has been merged in first class on many
roads. The corridor in an English or conti
nental train is a narrow passageway run
ning along one side of the coach. There
are vestibules connecting the coc.ches, so
that one may walk from one end of the
train to the other provided that In making
up the train they have not put a luggage
van In the middle. This is rot infrequently
the case, and when it occurs if you have
to go through the train to reach the dining
car the guard" or the dining attendant un
locks and opens the doors and you thread
your way between the piles of trunks.
I have thought at times that I liked the
English cars under certain conditions bet
ter than our own. There- is always th
possibility of having space reserved by a
judicious tip to tho guard. The scats are
very roomy and delightfully upholstered,
though the general .decoration Joes not
compare with that of our best cars. Se
cure In your private compartment, with
long. Foft couches on which to lie if von
are tired, tho privilege of windows on either
side and a private toilet room In direct
communication, you are far more comfort
able than you would be In one of Mr. Pull
man's plush seats. If you are hungry you
can have a luncheon basket containing a
hot or cold meal put aboard and e.ft at
your leisure and in private. These
luncheons am not elaborate, hut they ;:r.
substantial, and in some respects I prefer
them to the English dining cfir meal. Hut
given a train crowded to suffocation, un
congenial fellow-travelers seated all about
you. frequently engaged in eating fruit
and making a target ef the window across
your helpless person, confined to one seat,
in which you wriggle and writhe as vour
limbs stiffen under confinement, you long
for the privileges of the Pullman car. Its
foot-rests, its smoking room, its bountiful
toilet equipment and its freedom from that
personal contact which you cannot buy o::
a crowded English train for any reason
DINING CARS COMPARED.
The English dining car li not for one mo
ment to be compared with the American.
The meal is not so expensive by home 13
cents, and wines and mineral water are not
sold on it at exaggerated prices. You could
buy a good California claret on the London
ä Northwestern Railway last year for just
one-third what you would pay for it on any
dining car in tho United States. But to
any one who is at all familiar with British
eating it is only necessary to say that what
you will find on the British dining car is
the plain, substantial IJritish dinner. The
British idea of eating is Umlied to "the
joint" (roast beef or mutton), potatoes and
"greens" of some sort and fruit tart or
plain pudding with cheese. To these may
le added a plain soup and a bit of fish.
While the result is adequate to appetite it
is not satisfying. Personally I prefer the
table d'hete meal. It saves one the trouble
of choosing from a variety of dishes on
which an indifferent chef has scattered his
meager ability. The table d'hote meal as
served in the German "Speise Wagen." or
dining car. is a delight. Hut as it is found
in the British dining car It is a disappoint
ment to the American traveler.
And here I want to say a brief word
about the facilities for eating which the
German rullroads provide. At almost every
station in Germany is a food wagon which
is pushed up and down the plattorm by a
waiter who often has a Rlrl assistant.
Frpm them you can buy cold food of many
kinds, and drinks beginning with coffee and
running through beer and wine to every
kind of cordial. In the dining car are two
compartments. Meals a la carte are served
there at all hours and at very reasonable
prices. At a fixed hour a table d'hote din
ner is served for 73 cents bountiful, well
cooked and nicely served. In one-half of
this car smoking is permitted, and passen
gers sit there drinking beer and talking
sometimes through the whole Journey. It
is also possible to have drinks and cold
food served in your compartment. It is a
curious fact that the windows of the Ger
man dining car open Inward on hinges
placed at the side, and these windows in
winter are fastened with lead seals. Ven
tilation is obtained through a narrow slit
above each window.
One feature of traveling In Great Britain
would not be accepted by travelers in
America. Passengers are permitted to oc
cupy seats in the dining car from the be
ginning to the end of the journey. The
dining car Is divided Into compartments,
some of which are for third-class pas
sengers, who pay a smaller price for meals
than those traveling first class. It Is a
fact that on a fast train on which I trav
eled from London to Liverpool there were
three dining cars and only two first-class
Liverpool compartments (with a capacity
rf four peseriser3 each) on the whole
Traveling In Ireland at a time when traf
fic was heavy. I w'as obliged to exchanac
seats with p. passenger who was in the
. dining car when i wanted my linner, as
every seat on the train was taken. It is
well known to all who have traveled In Eng
land and on the continent that the limit of
weight on passengers' luggage makes it the
custom for travelers to take a ridiculously
large, amount of hand luggage into the
passenger coach. With all the seats occu
pied and the aisles filled with an as
sortment of bags, bundles and boxes, the
dining car i.-j not a very attractive place.
However, the comforts of traveling in
England are dependent in great measure
on the personal service which one com
mands for a trifling fe, and the discom
forts are not so serious that they make
tho traveler discontented until he returns
to his own country and Its splendid rail
ways. GEORGE GRANTHAM BAIN.

There was a most brilliant and fnieeess
ful gymkhana at Bagatelle. In the Bois de
Boulogne, yesterday. Attendance was
large, and. as usual, select, comprising the
Duchesse d'l'zes, the Duchesse Do Brissae,
the Duchesse De Moniy. the Duchess de
la Rochefoucauld, the Duchesse De Rohan,
and many more persons of title. The um
pires were the Due Do Lorge. Comte Lc
Marols, and M. Foixnier-Sarlovezo. The
race of animals was hailed with great ex
citement, and afforded much material for
aristocratic amusement. The winner was
M.-ne. De Yturbe's she-monkey, iirxt com
ing Baronne De Berekheim's tortoise, which
was naturally a much-favored competitor,
receiving odds, and third in tho run was
the golden pheasant of tho Duchesse 1
Noallles. The ladies owning these pets
superintended their evolutions on the
ground, and directed them with wands to
word the goal. Mme. Do Yturbe's winning
monkey behaved in a most Intelligent man
ner, and would have delighted Darwin
and Huxley had they been alive to see the
marvelous race. The Baronne De Herck
heim had some trouble with her dilatory
tortoise, but the latter managed to beat
some of the more alert animals, despite
difficulties of motion. Horses, donkeys,
mules and dogs were excluded. Also ran.
to use the sporting phrase, the Comtesso
De Sosmalson's guinea pig. the Comtesse
De Ganay's male monkey, Mme. Lejeune's
sable Muscovite bunny, Mme. De Hire's
sucking pig. and another guinea pig. or
oochon dinde, owned by Mme. De Gulrove.
In the bending race which followed, Mr.
V. A. Gill, manager of the polo, was first;
Mr. J. II. Wright being second, and M.
De Heeren third. The. games concluded
bv races for boys and girls.
"There Is some mystery about the case of
the actress and her niece who are said to
have been assaulted in the Vincennes wood
yesterday morning. Some of the newspa
pers published elaborate and sensational ac
counts of the affair to-day, and it was said
that the niece, a girl of sixteen, was ab
ducted by four of the bad characters who
infest the wood. The more picturesque ac
count of the Vincennes affair is as follows,
and it must be taken with many grains of
salt, as there is much difficulty in getting
at the truth. It is stated that at 8 o'clock
yesterday morning an actress and vocalist
was sitting with her niece, aged sixteen, in
a part of the wood called the Labyrinth.
Tills place Is backed by a thick copse,
which forms a sheltered rendezvous for
the abominable wretches who haunt the
wood. While the actress and her niece were
talking five men emerged from the copse
and attacked them. One of the miscreants
threw his overcoat over the elder woman
and then attempted to tie her feet. She
struggled with all her strength for several
minutes and managed to extricate her
head. Then she discovered that she was in
the hands of one ruffian and that the other
four had taken away her niece. Refore this
happened, however, deplorable scene had
occurred. The actress and her niece were
subjected to horrible treatment, and their
screams were stifled by gags thrust into
their mouths. After the actress had ex
tricated her head she also managed to
free her mouth and again shouted for help.
Her assailant, seeing some bicyclists ap
proach, ran away, after having given his
victim a violent butt with his head which
sent her rolling on the road. Finally the
actress was helped to Charenton, where she
received the medical assistance which she
much needed. She was badly hurt in the
head, face and body. As soon as informa
tion of the affair was given to the police a
search was made through every corner of
the wood, but neither the girl nor the mls
cieants who had carried her off could be
fcund. This is the sensitional story told
to-day, and upon it was built a long list of
the langers of Vincennes wood. There is
no eloubt that the two woods are places of
great peril after dark, but the Bois de Vin
cennes is considerably dangerous at all
hours, although the bad characters infest
ing it do not go so far as to effect assaults
and abductions In the daylight, while the
avenues and walks are patrolled by gen-
uarmes on foot and on horscMack, as well Merchant of Venice." It also seemed to
as by the ordinary rangers.
I'M'LE TOM'S CAHIN" I llllDlSli.

New York Evening Post.
Undo Tom and his famous cabin undergo
some curious metamorphoses when they arc
transplanted to the lowi r East .ido Yiddish
Theater. Then was a performance of tn
play in Yiddish at the People's Theater, on
the Bowery, last nifiht. to the ufcompani
n.nil of creepy music and -.olor. d lights.
Tho curtain rose on t lie usual humble cab
In with one side knocked oft; Aunt Chloo
was it's' do busy about tho tiro. The back
ground ef tho scene was particularly lugu
brious, representing a graveyard, green, at
one pidc, purple at tho other. Presently, a
fuzzy (it turns out latr to be one of
the iIoojh'n::ias) meanders amiably on the
stage and oil again. Eliza and her boy
Hairy come next, to warm themselves at

closed the door of tho cabin after her.

are fond of introducing broken German.
When 1'hlneas I' letchcr received the tearful

and Indulged in a long and s'-rbnis speech
in Yiddish in th midst of which the ex

who was a repetition of tho conventional
Hebrew e'omeuian of the vaudeville thea
ters, anel net unlike a certain typo of law
yers te be seen about the police courts,
spoke English at least half tho time, and
always when he brought in the old familiar
"I'm a lawyer my nati.e is Marks. Even
tho presence of the serious-minded George
Harris diel not put a stop to it. Tito dialogue
on his entrance runs something like this:
Phineas I say, are you George Harris?
George Du ke-iin.sl mich.
Phineas I say, George, es ist mein pflicht
dich zu warnen.
George Freiheit will Ich, freiheit!
Phineas Ain't I the mau te put you
This sort of macaronic conversation was
perhaps not unnatural, since a large printed
sign in English, "$f00 reward for the cap
ture of George Harris," hung on the wall
when the scene began.
Eliza, as was to be expected, got safely
across a river full of teetering ice, though
pursued by two mild-looking greyhounds
and the fuzzy dog of scene one. A!se. the
slave-drivers were put to flight. While these
things were being done the dome of a
mosque could be elimly seen in the back
ground to give local color to the Ohio land
scape. Miss Ophelia made several local hits
about the Bowery, and alluded to one of
the neighboring burlesque shows where ste
said she had seen "an Irisher und a Dutch
man sie dansen ein jig zusammen." Coon
songs were the best things that Topsy did.
"Shoo fly. Geh dir mich nit," soumled
queer, however, as did also a translation
of "My Money Never Gives Out." She sang
some more In the levee scene In act live,
with the assistance of a chorus of about
fifty genuine negroes. These last had to
sing in English, for the obvious reason that
they knew no other language. Thus, after
Bin Ich dein beau.
Bleib mein Joe
Sagst du mich, so, etc.
the chorus rang out, loud and clear, with
I'm your Joe,
You told me so.
Springtime, maybe, etc.
It is hardly necessary to note that the
several elevating scenes in which Uncle
Tom and his master dicuss religious topics
were omitted bodily. Legrec was as red
bearded and ferocious as heart could wish,
and the audience "buzzed" at him every
time he showed his fae-e in front of the cur
tain. He apparently frightened all the
darkey dialect out of Uncle Tom, lor he
relapsed at pnee into the gravei and elignl
fied speech of the rabbi in "Children of
the Ghetto." a part which, by the way,
was taken by an actor who for a time play
ed Uncle Tom In the Academy of Music
production. What took every vestige of
verisimilitude out of the flnai scenes was
the appearance of Emmeline, who might
