At ttirougu tb« “Horm<v* re«ion pasttd
An Oil irtek man, ’mid i~ui uni slosh,
Who thr*w up his bat and cried “By goth,
Petroleum!”
Bis cheeks were pa'e, his eyes wore bright,
As a flash from a patent kerosone light;
HU boots, as taey sauk m the greasy ground.
Splashes out the oily, melodious sound—
Petroleum!
In strike prospective he did sell,
An huudied tbousnd b <rrel well,
Above—the c alms he didn’t own,
That from hit heart drew forth a groan,
Petroleum!
"Sick not that, well,” his cor science said;
Too t»lg a strike may strke you dead ”
Up goes the derr ck. down goes the bore.
Up comes the tand-pump, “What’s flowing o'er r
Petroleum!

How an Oil Well is Made.
After selecting a spot for a well, the arte
sian driller raises a derrick about 110ft. in
height, bringing up a steam engine of about
six horse power, and then, after driving
down an iron pipe about six inches in
diameter through the earth aud gravel some
flay feet or so tojlhe first strata of rock, intro
duces a drill of about two and a half inches iu
diameter attached to a temper screw, and
thence to the “walking beam” and engine,
with which he bores now at the rate of eight
or ten feet per day into solid slate, soapstone,
say one hundred feet; he then comes to the
first strata of sand stone, which may be ten
or twelve feet in thickness: and boring through
this comes again to a slate and soapstone, of
bluish cast, and woiking on say for twenty
five feat or so, he reaches the second strata oi
sandstone, out of which there comes rushing
up, when the right vein is struck, inflamable
gas, salt water or petroleum. The bore of
the well Is enlarged by a “rimmer,” and then
an iron tube iu sections of about fourteen
teet and closely screwed together, is inserted
by sections and run down to the veins of oil;
a flax seed bag, which expands when wet, is
fixed between the tubings and the walls of
the well' in order to pervent the surface wat
er from descending; a “plunger” or valve pis
ton, is introduced into the tube and'sucker
rod, being attached to the “walking-beam,”
the conduit pipes and tank, which may hold
Sixty barrels, being iu readiness, the engine
moves and the precious treasure gushes forth
This i< what is called a pumping well. In the
“fly wing well’*—that is such as send the oil
out spontaneously—the drill must go down
Into the third strata of saDdstone; but this, in
soma instances is very deep.

Dr. Lnrookoh’s carsaparilla Componud, has been
so groat a blessing in our flunily that we class it
with Larookah’s Syrup, the best article in use for

I ;U
The property of this Company is located on “Coal
Run Creek,” in Meigs county, State of Ohio, about
ten miles from Athens, containing one hundred and
five ac es of land. A large number of wells are
successfully worked in the vicinity, some of which
are paying handsome dividends. This company pro
pose to commence operations at once, and entertain
no doubt that at an early day they will be able to
pay a handsome per centage on the investment.—
The known ability and commercial standing of the
officers of this company afford a sufficient guaranty
that the afikir/ will be conducted in a manner to se
cure the confidence of those who are disposed to in
vest in it.
The tract of land adjoining the property of this
company has psssed into the hands of capitalists,
who have sent out an experienced superintendent to
commence operations and their first order for ma- i
chinery was $15,000. Our property has been exam- |
ined under instructions from Dr. A. A. Hayes, State
Assayer of Massachusetts, who pronounces the coal,
which is in abundance, to be of the best quality,
yielding eighty gallons of oil to the ton, and has no
donbt, from the location and position of the proper
ty, that it will be found valuable in the^ production
of oil. Most companies have to pay very high pri
ces for their coal, all of which we save-, oil can be
manufactured from the coal upon the property, at a
cost not exceeding ten cents per gallon and it is pro
posed to commence the manufacture in connection
with the sinking of wells. One dollar will buy a
hare of this stock, whioh is the par value, and all
b nefits derived from the lands, either by sales of
oil, land, or products of any kind, are to be divided
among the stockholders, and in addition, $200 000
worth of valuable, useful and desirable property
will be given to the stockholders, as soon as all the
shares are disposed of The Company adopt this
course for the purpose of disposing of the stock at
the par value, rather than to sell it, as many compa
nies do, at a subscription price, whioh is usually
one-half. Thus, it will be perceived that every
stockholder owning ten shares, for example, will bo
sure to realize a handsome dividend when the prop
erty is divided; a plan whioh is entirely honorable,
and in all respects perfectly legal.
The property to be distributed among the stock
holders will be equal to any in the market, and will
consist of the following described articles:—
95000 to purchase a House in Boston or vicinity.
$6(500 in U S. 5-20 Bonds, Certificates of 9500 each.

Paying quarterly affords time to .ell the oil produc

The dividends wi 1 beyond queetlon, be not only

DR. POLAND'S
WHITE PIM COMPOMI,
The Great Popular Eemtdy
For Colds, Coughs, Hoarseness, 8
Throat, Croup, and Whooping
Cough.
Cures G-ravel,
And all Kidney Diseases !
THERE have been many severe cues in Boatoa
and vicinity cund by the White l %ne Con
pound, which eau be rticired io, and huudied* ol
caae.1 of Kidney coinpla.nis, cured entirely by taxing
(he White Pine Compound, having b«eu resorud
by druggMU. '
Among all tho popular medicines c fi nd for tale,
no ono seems to have gained favor like the W hit*
fine Compound. 1 hi* Mcuicinu was nr, t made aa
lately aa tne epring ol 1866, and then merely tor one
individual, who wa*sll’wc;td sub an :nll mruteiioa
ot the throat. A cure was effected by it. this in
duced others to apply for tho eame remedy, and
«»erp one using it received a great otut lit. 1 ne ar
ucie, however, went without a name till November
joilowiug.wbeu it was called White Pine Compound,
l“at ■aouth it wa» adverti-eu lor the first
time.
an •^dividual, who purchased
°k KA^r har<1 couKli» was not only cured of tho
cough, but also ot a severe kidney complaint, of tea
years endurai.ee. ibis being truly a disc.tery,
tho fact was mentioned to askililul phvsio:an, who
replied, in substance tbat, the bar* ot whito
pine was one oi the best diuretics known, provided
its aatringency could be counteracted, it toe other
articles entering into the compound wou*d effect
this, a iortune was in the uiecicine. t he fortune La*
no. yet been reachtd; but the hundred a of cures ei
ieottd by tr.e compound, in the m«bt aggravated
cases ot Kidney diseases, including JJmbtH* provb
it to be a wondertiil medicine for such uilmrut*. a
large number oi physicians now employ it, or recom
mend it lor such use.
But while the White Piue Compound is bo useful in
Kidney infiamxtion, it is also a wonderful curative iu ail
throat and lung diseases. It so qui-kly and sooth ugly
allays iuflauiation, that hoarsen*se and soreness are re
moved as if by magic. Numerous coses have been report
ed to the originator, where relief in very ee^re cuses ha*
been experienced in one hour and a cure effected in
twenty-tour hours.
There is a very natural reason for this. The bark, and
even the leaves, or ‘needles,’’ of Whits fine con tola
eminent medicinal qualities. The Indians employed the
bark of Wi bite fine in treating diseases loug before the
settlement ot America by Europeans. One instance con
firming this may here be g.veu.
James Cartier, a bo d French mariner, aseaily as 1534,
sailed along the northern coast of North America, iud
was the first among discoverers to euter the itivar 8t.
Lawrence. On his ratnrn down therivrr. lie touud lii*
men sadly afflicted and disabled by wh»t sailors cal! (ha
scurvey. Its ravages were fatal, and the survivors werr
scarcely able to bury the dead Some or the Indiana
along the shore were likewise attacked by tho *no*.e dis
ease, but Cartier observed that they soon recovered. Ue
therefore earnestly enquired about their ir,ode of treat
ment, and they pointed out to him a trw, the bark and
leaves of which they used iu decoction, with signal suc
cess. Cartier tried the same remedy, and had the gratifl
cation of seeing all of Lis crew who were afflicted rapidly
improving. This tree was the White fine.
A wash of the bark, steeped in water, is exceedingly
useful in reducing intiaiuation and cleansing old sores.
In fine, the virtues of White fine Bark are known every
where, and this, doubtless is one grmud reason why the*
White Pine Compound was so favorably received at th»
first.
I he past year has given a great opportunity to tsfit the
virtues of the White Pine (Joinjtouud. It has been aa
unusual time for Colds and coughs, and very large
quantities of the White Pine Compound have U»u sold
and used with the happiest effects. It speaks well for the
Medicine, that the people living where it is prepared
are high in its praise.
TE§TUiDAIiLS.
A very large number ot important testimonials have
already been reoeived from Physicians, Clergymen,
Apothecaries, and, indeed, from all classes in society,
speaking iu the most Lettering terms of the White l*ia*
Compound.
Dr Nichols cf Northfield Vt. says:
"1 find the White Pine i ompouud to be very effl^aciuhs
not only in coughs and other pulmonic affections but
also in atfections of the kidneys, debility ot stomach
and other kindred organs.”
Her. J, K. Chase of Kuxnney, N. H.,writes:
“ I hive for years regard*! > our W hi te Hue Compound
as an mvaluabie remedy. I can truly say I regard it as
eren more efficacious and valuable than ever l bare
just taken tbe Compound for a cold, and it works charm
Ingly.”
Hon. P. II. gweetsar of South Reading, writes:
“Hating long kb awn somethiug of tbe valuable medi
cinal properties of tba White Pine, l waa prepared, on
seeing an advertisement of your White pine C ompound,
to gits tbe medicine a trial. It has beeu used by mem
bers of my family, for several years, for colds and cougbs,
and in some cases, of serious kidney difficulties, with
excellent results. Several of our friends bare also re
ceived much benefit from tbs Compound. We intend tm
keep it always on baud."
Rev. U. I). Huge of West Randolph, Vt., woo Is •
physician, says:
“I find it (the Compound) an excellent medicine la
kidney diseases,”
Says Mr. S. Boody, of the 14tb regiment MusaaAuiena
Heavy Artillery, at Port Tlilinghast:
“'ins Whits fins Compound eflected a cure where a
follow was considered In a critical consumpiiou by a.1
who knew him. I can fully substantiate this by men In
this Company who thought it folly for him to make a trial
Of it. In colds or oougbs, men leave the care of tba
■urgaon, where treetment cart be bad for nothing, an!
try the White fine Compound.”
COL. GOULD,
Formerly Major of m* idiu »Ur*t. M. V. (that Vetera*
Regiment!) in a letter to 3. Dean, Esq., of Moneham,
speaks in the highest praDe of the Weite Pi*t Com
pound, and expresses a wish that it might be sent te
the soldiers. His opinion i« based on personal knowl
edge.
Wo effort has ever yet been mad* by the- proprietor te
introduce it into the Army ; and yet it has ofteu been pur
chased by friends of soldiers, to send in packages, and
ordered by officers and soldiers, and large quantities hare
been forwarded by express,
FROM JAMES J.HOYT.
Bbadfokd, N.U., Sept, WPJ,
Da. Poland.—In the fit.lof 1867, 1 took a very vto
toot cold which brought on a very severe cough, p *iu m
side and lungs, and raising blood. 1 was also very badly
afflicted with that troublesome disease-, the Ji-oney
Coir plaint. For the three years past 1 have t>e«m very
much troubled with my throat and lungs, choking up
and raising an immense sight, with a bud cough after
raising blood; 1 felt that my tune here must be short un
less I soon got relief, In the spring I was induced to try
yoar White Pine t (impound, though my foith In it was
small. But to my astonishment, before 1 had taken two
bottles, mv cough was better, the kiduey trouble also,
and 1 could rest nights without choking up and'raisiug so
much. I have taken nearly three bottles, and am feeling
like a well man.
I would add, that my father's family is inclined to con
sumption, my father, mother, and two sisters having died
of it.
FROM STEPHEN BARTLETT.
Bradford, N. U., July, HGU.
Da. Poland.—I had beeu atiictau with Kiduey Com
plaint lor a long time, and had a bad cough of tea years*
standiug, which caused me to spit blood quite frequent
ly. Mo one of my acquain ances expected 1 wou.d get
my health again. But two battles of your White Pine
Compound have cured me of both the cough and kidney
complaints.
1 wouftl also state that a lady, a neighbor of ours, wta
so badly afflicted with a cough that she . at up only long
enough to have her bed made, and we all thought the was
going in a quick consumption. She took only one bottle
of your Compound, and it cured her. She is just u
well now as ever she was.
FROM B. F. AIKEN.
Goff#town, March 14, M/.
Db. Poland.—I wish to bear testimony to tfj* rmftn of
your uhite rine Compound. You will member how
feeble I was at the time 1 called on you in J uly last. My
chief complaint was incarnation the kidneys. 1b
additiou toother disagreeable symptom*, I suffered dread
fully from severe pain.—You »o.d me a bottie of the
White Pine Compound, and before l had taken two
thirds of the contents of one bottle, my pain had til left
me. Though I have been afflicted with that comp aint a
long time, 1 have not had a return of it since, and have
for many months past enjoyed excellent hea.th. *
WHITE PINE COMPOUND FOR DIABETES.
Important testimony from Asa Goodhue, Esq., of
Ntw Hampshire.
For sixteen years or more i have suffered mueh**t in
tervals, from what at first was called kidney coioflaiurs,
but a year ago last December 1 fell sick, and ray attend
ing physicians pronounced my disease Dia'aeftw. The
prostratiou of my system was so great, and of so
long continuance that neither relatives, neighbors nor
physicians expected that I could poesiMy live through
the spring. Tne same was my own opinion.
Near the last of March, 1869, being well acquainted
with Dr J. W. Poland, 1 felt inclined to test the value of
his White Pine Compound, as the article waa hi hly
reccomiuended for iutiainaiion of the kidneys. A bottle
of U was procured, and Immediately af er commencing its
use 1 began to amend. My strength gradually returned,
the severe pains subaided, and in the tall j was able to
attend to considerable business. I believe Dr. Poland's
White Pine Compound, under God, has been the means of
my recovery thus for
To say that 1 ever expect to have perfect healtbsgu n,
is out of the question at my age, (fid > But thi* 1 will
say, that while I use the Compound, my health is very
comfortable. When 1 have relinquished its use, the sever*
pains have returned, and ail the disagreeable symptoms
of my disease. But a return to the use of the Compound
has produced immediate i«lief.
During the eleven months, in which I have beeen tak
ing this medicine, I have used not quite five bottles. In
a word, let me say to all afflicted with similar complaint*
to mine, try Dr. Poland’s White Pine Compound.
• ASA GOODHUE.
The White Pine Compound, advertised at length
our columns, is not only as to its name invitiug, t,uth a
highly approved medicine. Dr. J W. Poland, the in,
