The deepest well drilled in the
United States is that at Homewood,
near Pitteburg, which, on December
I, 1886, had reached a depth of 4.
618 feet, when the tools were lost
and drilling ceased. The Buchanan
farm well, of the Niagara Oil Com
pany, Washington County, is 4,303
feet deep. The deep well near Ti
tusville, was drilled obput 3,500 teet.
J. M. Guffey & Co.’s well, West
moreland County, was drilled to a
depth of 3.500 feet. The well at
Sargent’s Mills, in Greene Count)',
was abandoned at 3,008 feet.
The deepest bore hole in Europe
is at Schladebaeh, on the railway
between Corbetha and Leipzig, and
was undertaken by the Prussian
government in search for coal. The
apparatus used is a diamond drill,
down the hollow shaft of which
water is forced, rising again to the
surface outside the shaft of the drill
and inside the tube in which the
drill works. By this method cores
of about fifty feet in length have
been obtained. The average length
bored in twenty-four hours is from
twenty to thirty three feet, but un
der favorable circumstances as much
as 180 feet has been bored in that

The bore hole, which in January,
1885. had reached a depth of 4,560
feet, was commenced in June, 1880,
but left after a year’s work; recom
menced at the end of 1882, and is
still progressing. The cost up to
Janury, 1885. was about $25,000.
At St. Louis there is a well 3,180
feet deep, which yields an abund
ance of sulphur water.

“Few people outside of the natu
ral gas region,” said a large owner
of gas wells in Washington County,
Pa., “have any idea what euormous
proportions the gas business has
grown to. It may be said to be on
ly about two years old iu Western
Pennsylvania, and more than 200,
000 acres of land in Washington
and adjoiniug counties have been
drilled with gas wells. Nearly 150,
000 tons of iron have been used in
manufacturing the pipes through
which the 500,000,000 cubic feet of
gas that tlow from the region daily
are conveyed to the places using it.
Over $25,000,000 is invested in the
business by’ the fourteen organized
companies that produce the bulk of
the gas. The land and wells rep
resent an outlay of $17,000,000.
The wells now producing are capa
ble of doubling the quantity now
demanded for light and heat. Near
ly 2,000 miles of ma;ns are required
for conducting the supply to con
sumers. It is estimated that the
use of natural gas has displaced 25,
000 tons of coal daily iu Western
Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio
alone.' Resides the wells controlled
by the great gas-producing compan
ies, individual owners have wells for
the supply of the smaller towns, aud
hamlet in the region has enough
natural gas running to waste every
day to abundantly supply the same
number of towns of 10,000 inhabi
tants each with light and fuel.”
Jenny June in Louisville Cotuier.
The question to be considered is
not upon absolutely how little a wo
man can dress at all, but upon how
small a sum can she dress well;
where economies can be best prac
ticed, ami iu what directions money
is best expended.
The first principle in buying well
is to know what not to buy, the sec
ond what to buy. the third when to
buy it.
Avoid the latest caprice in design
for the cost is out ol all proportion
so its value, and will be reduced to
half in a few weeks. Avoid the
thing reduced to “almost nothing,”
because it is out of date, aud no
body wants it. Avoid whatever is
not iu harmony with vour age, style,
character and mode of living. Ex
ceptions are always costly, must be
provided for separately, and demand
exclusive belongings. Avoid pretty,
flimsy mateiials. showy, ornamental
accessories, pronounced patterns,
and cheap drop or bead trimmings.
Avoid the pretentious, that which is
large of size, vulgar in style and of
poor quality, for it carries the hall
mark of ignorance and inferior
breeding. If J'ou have a doubt in
regard to the wisdom of a purchase,
give yourself the benefit of it, and
do not make it.
To buy well, find out exactly
what you want, and why you want
it; then search for that which best
fulfills the requirements within the
limits you have prescribed tor your- ,
self. Shut your eyes when you pass
such ‘ bargain” counters as contain
dyed hosiery, malformed gloves
and decayed artificial flowers. Close
them also upon the fascinations of
red tulle vails, and vails dotted with
a substance that will stick to your
face on a moist or warm day, and
make you look as it you had the
Don't be deluded by efforts on the
part of the Salesmen to induce you
to buy against your jiujgment. Their
value to the proprietor is in propor
tion to their ability to get rid of
goods that are not desirable; any
body can sell what everybody wants.
“Give women what they want,’ said
one of them, “and wild horses can
not prevent them from somehow get
ting it.” But you must be sure that
the reason why you want a thing is
because it supplies your own need—
not because others have it.
Remember, you are not obliged to
buy homeliness or sadness, oi mere
lv negative qualities. If you have
a taste for color, gratify it,, but do it
judiciously. Get red wool for a
morning dress, line it with cheap
gray twill, and face it with good
open Irish point. The materials
will cost about $6, and it will be
wearable for several years. Get
Gobelin wool, if red does not suit
It is not well to buy more than is
needed, but it is not economy to live
on one or two dresses, as some re
commend. This might have been
done in a simpler state of society,
and may be perhaps now by those
whose routine is limited and know
very little change. But the woman
who has to dress well on small means
is usually subject to diversified de
mauds and the pressure of social as
well as domestic or business obliga
tions. If these do not exist for her
the question presents no difficulties,
I and need not be discussed. Taking
| the diversified requirements lor
granted, it will be found more eco
nomical to have clothing adapted to
them than to be obliged to wear one
dress, whether it be suitable or not.
i’he advantage of one or two dress
es is that they can be renewed fre
quently and represent the latest
style. But this is not always desir
able. There are dresses for various
| occasions which may retain a style
of their own. Morning dresses,
walking, boating, bathing, and even
I evenin'? dresses.
A white cloth or flannel dress does
not seem to he an economical pur
I chase, yet it has been found so bv
i some persons. For example: A still
! young-looking lady, who lias, how
ever, been married eight years, and
has several children, called the other
day, wearing a white wool suit,
braided in an open pattern, and
looking so fresh and pretty that
some one remarked upon it and com
plimenteii her upon its fit. “This
was one of my trousseau dresses, ’
she laughingly rejoined, “and was
made some eight years ago. It has
! been three times in the hands of the
i cleaner, who charges me three dol
j lars, but it is worth it, for it comes
I out as good as new. The preser
vation of such a dress and its effec
tive use upon occasions would not
be possible if it was one of “one or

robe, one of black silk, the other a
combination of silk and wool. Sat
I in is only suitable for middle-aged
women, and for these it may be
trimmed with guipure lace or jet, or
both. But younger women should
select faille, or satin Francaise; use
a simple but graceful design, and
; good imitation chantillv for nock
and sleeves of the more dressy bod
ice, for it is economy to have two, if
you can make them yourself.
If a good silk is used, it may be
worn for two seasons and will be
still good to cover with piece lace,
or make into a skirt, which, trimm
i ed may be worn with a jersey or in
dependent basque, and, untriinmed,
with a gray or black polonaise.
There is no more useful minor cos
tume than a black silk skirt and po
lonaise of black camel’s hair or cash
mere. with full silk plaited vest;
: and the combination will bp still

wool, hut it will also be more ex
i pensive. A good black silk. includ
ing lining, trimmings and finish,
will cost $50. even if made at home
J with the assistance for two day* of
« good dressmaker. But this will
admit of a choice between faille,
moire or satin Francaise, or nice jet
trimming and the two bodices, with
| lace for the second.
Indispensable to comfort and
neatness are two walking dresses,
I one a hack-dress of plain wool, the
other a handsome dress for after
noon receptions and formal visiting.
The dress used for these purposes
| would not be used as a church cos
tume, because the latter is exposed
to all kinds of weather, and a black
silk or silk and wool is found more
nseful and suitable. The plain
w®ol dress should not cost more
than $10 to $15, the more elegant
costume $25 to $50, the latter sum
if velvet is used for mounting, and
bonnet and mantle included, the
whole manufacture by on expert
seamstress, not bought ready-made
or ordered No woman of small
means could risk that. But it is
the best to have the one handsome
street cossume made complete and
to keep it for important occasions.
It may then be worn three years
with no change but redraping.

Sci. American, Dec. 10.
A correspondent who is traveling
in Dakota writes as follows Irom the
town of Artesian, Sanborn County:
This town, as its name indicates,
is the center of an artesian well dis
trict that extends about ten miles
in every direction. It seems to be
a sort of a natural artesian well
section, where by drilling 60 to 139
feet in depth they get a moderate
flow of water, with pressure suffi
cient to carry it up in a 3 inch pipe
about 15 to 20 feet above the surface
of the ground, costing the farmer
(and nearly every farmer has one)
about $100 for well, pipe, etc., in
cluded—an invaluable adjunct to a
farm. The water just here, in the
village, is very hard and impregna
ted with iron, but some of the wells
yield fairly soft water. The water
varies from extremely hard to near- j
lv soft.
The district was first discovered
when the Chicago, Milwaukee Jr St.
Paul Railway, at this point, three
years ago, for railway purposes,
commenced a well which was dug 10
feet diameter, 50 feet deep, without
success. A drill was then intro
duced 56 feet further, 6 inches di
ameter, when, suddenly, it sank 4
feet into a chamber, and the well
immediately flowed 10.000 gallons
per hour.
TUe surplus water oi an uie va
rious wells gives no trouble, finding
its way to slough and lake bottoms.
Some farmers, as well as the rail
way company, now run rams with
the surplus water that pumps it up
30 feet high, as the pressure is not
as good as when first discovered.
I am told that at Aberdeen, 100
miles north of this place, where they
i have an artesian well 1,100 feet
i deep, it throws up live fish.
It would seem feasible to arrange
j a system of sprinklers over a sect
ion of land, whereby water might be
! turned on to the wheat or other
; crops in case of drought.
Good beef steers sell here now for
2 cents per pound live weight, and
farmers kick at the low price.
Hogs are worth 4 cents, which is
thought to be an excellent price,
j Corn sells at 20 cents per bushel, or
say $5.75 per ton, allowing 70
pounds to the bushel—very cheap.
I Some talk of burning it for fuel, as
I it is considered fully as cheap as
Pennsylvania hard coal, present
price of which is $11.50 per ton.

Pittsburgh Chronicle.
The question of making laces of
iron and steel for ladies’ and chi 1
, dren's wear is again being discussed
I in art, mill and fashion circles. At
the Centennial in 1876 a piece of
steel rolled by a Pittsburgh mill
was on exhibition, which was so
I thin and light that it weighed much
less than a bookleaf, and could be
| blown from the hand easier than a
1 piece of paper of the same size. The
iron leaf was rolled on a train of
rolls upon which heavy tank and
boiler iron is now rolled.
Experts say that curtains and
. other fine laces can be made of soft
malleable iron, and in every way be
used with greater satisfaction than
: cotton laces. The sheets will neces
I sarily have to be rolled down to an
exceedingly low gauge, and then
pressed iuto any desirable pattern
I and shape. There will be no trouble
in furnishing iron laces for ladies
and children’s wear.with their names
and other ornaments in a filagree
design. An introduction of steel
lace would establish in Pittsburgh
an industry that would give work to
at least 3,000 men. and consume an
nually not less than 76.000 tons of
steel, which is now a drag irv-thc
market at less than two cents a
pound. Steel lace, unlike cotton,
can be made light or heavy without
affecting the grade, color, or bright
ness. We may yet see fashionable
j ladies wearing steel shawls and
trimmings fortheir hats and dresses.
Job had much patience; yet it
was fortunate lor him that he did
1 not join fences with a neighbor who
kept breathy stock.
There is something to consider in the dally
expenses for the household necessities, which
in the aggregate of the year amount to a good
deal. The ethics of buying and selling seem
to be for the vendor to get all he can, and for
the purchaser to see that he don't get too
much. Bat what is too much? It is almost
a profound question, and presents the strange
paradox that the dearest in many things is
often the cheapest Certainly this is so in
food where health is involved, and in reme
dies which restore health alter it has been
impaired. It is certainly so in clothing; for
a cheap suit that will hardly last one season is
dearer than the one which will last two sea
sons, the difference in price being reasonable.
So in shoes, and the like. Recurring to the
items of food and health, undoubtedly the
most important, it is fovfftd that villainous
adulteration is what renders it cheaper, in
much that is sold, and men are known who
have spent thousands to be cored of disease,
have suffered yean of agony, and have trifled
away their substance on worthless remedies.
That which is testified to by thousands ss be
ing an absolute cure, and permanently effica
cious, is cheap at any price in comparison
with such as have no virtue, and which pro
long suffering. A case in point is the follow
ing: “New Bloomfield, Pa., April 28, 1886.

We submit the following to
those persons likely to compre

of a journal that is truthful, whose
editorials are written bv the ablest
men in the State and whose sole ob
ject is to bring about intelligent
voting. If this paper had 5,000 cir

State for one year the people would
understand public men and public
measures a hundred times better
than they now do. By universal
consent we give more intorma'iun

journalism in that it is a State pa

paper. It is as different from tho

from a comic almanac. We do not
expect subscriptions from men who
prefer nonsense, but we have a right

The 52 copies we furnish for $L
costs us between 90 and 95 cents.
This enterprise was not undertaken
to make money. There wus a need
for a public paper as distinguished
from a private paper; there was a
need for a journal whose utterances
would not be warped by reward nor
intimidated by threats. 1 he Demo
crat was established to supply this
need. While we already reach a
much larger audienee in West \ ir
ginia than any cither publication,
yet it is not one-third as large as it
should be. Our object is to force a
discussion of questions that concern
the immediate welfare of the citizen.
Our object is to force politicians to
seek popular favor by faithful ef
