They were testing the pressure in the casing, and when the pressure reached 150 pounds two joints of the casing shot up through the derrick. They escaped with a slight concussion but it was a close call. The pressure of a well should always be taken from the tubing as casing is not generally strong enough, or well enon gh put together. —We copy, this week, from a Philadel phia paper an article headed "Death in Milk Pails." The article is written in a . humorous strain, but there is a serious side to the subject. Granting that your | milk supply comes from animals whose systems have not been polluted by either sewerage water, swill food, or any other cause, it may yet be made poisonous and unfit for use by improper handling. A mix ture of cold and warm milk is poisonous. A milk dealer who pours the cold evening's milk into the warm morning's milk and supplier his customers with the mixture, : gradually poisons each and every one of them. Warm, fresh milk thrown into a 1 freezer and suddenly chilled and made into * "ice-cream" is poisonous—and the poison that is generated by this action, tyrotoxi ; con, has otteu caused sudden death. The : milk of each milking should be kept sepa l rate, and the warm milk should not bo put in a closed vessel until all the animal heat 1 in it has escaped. The greatest of care r also should be taken to keep the vessels > clean in which the fluid is placed. After ; using they should be rinsed and scalded, - and then set in a cool place, with the covers oil', to air and sweeten. Close a milk-can or churn, even after rinsing and ' scalding it, and set it in the sun, and it ' will soon become putrid. The adulteration e of milk, by the addition of water, whiting, ,or any other fluid or substance, can and 1 should be prevented by law, with an iu -1 spector to enforce the law, and every per son who proposes dealing in milk should lie required to pass an examination in the production and handling of it before being granted a license to do o. ir d —Diaries lor ISUO at •J. 11. DOUGLASS'. Oil Field Notes. , j If the roads would become passable 11 : thousand new rigs would lie built in B itler county within three weeks, but as it i- I these operations will be delayed until the . mud freezes or dries. Teamsters are now , charging from sl2 to sls a thousand for j hauling lumber from either Butler or Rci bold to the Hundred foot territory, and a they can haul but half a thousand a day. it ' will be seen that they are not making big ' money at that, while at the same time in juring their teams. There are about eight thousand feet of lumber iu a rig, including the walking-beam, and not. including the sills, which are generally cut on the place, and the bad roads nearly double the price ' of a rig. The entire cost of a well iu this field is about $3,200, the drillers are asking from 90 cents to a dollar a foot, and the tank men want sllO for a 250 barrel tank. There is but little news to record in the field. In the hundred-foot the Humphrey ■ farm well was drilled a bit deeper last Friday aud started off at 500 barrels a day, aud has been doing somewhere near that since, llaslett A Co., and Greenlee A Co.. have started new wells on that farm, the last named firm paying $3,200 for a sixteen ! acre lease. M. Clung & Co. are starting four on the Graham, adjoining the Hum phrey to the west. Christie Bros, have six drilling on the lift, aud several were started on the Knaul". The Xcsbitt farm well was rated at 50 barrels per day. Steele A Co., and Reader A Co., have a little war on hands over a lease of part of the Xcsbitt farm. Steele is in possession and is keeping Reader's men off, and will bring an action iu ejectment. The leases owned by Steele were taken last year and were apparently abandoned. At Callery, Johnston sold some leases on the Marburger and Walters farms to to the Ancher Oil Co., (or SH,OOO. Cracier A Co.'s well on the Martin was rated at 30 barrels, the Jos. Ca-lidollar at No. 3, on the Irvine, at 10(1 barrels. Phillips, Doilthett No. 3, is Jct doing 300 barrels. The Markle farm, in the western part of the field, was leased by a company of Butler men a few days ago. the price paid is said to have been SIO,OOO. Fifty acres of the Slater farm a mile north of present wells were leased for s2.io bonus. Lumber is being hauled from /Oelienopie for a rig on the Matthew Graham farm, in the southern part of Cranberry township. A rig is going up on Hie Jas. Baker farm adjoining the Alien farm, in Franklin town ship. Statistics of last year's petroleum ex ports reveal a very gratifying fact. They ■ completely upset the impression that had bein gaining ground that American pro ducers were losing their foothold in the far East, a most important quarter. The contrary is the case. The great population East India takes to refined petroleum more kindly every year, and soon they will burn nothing else, because it combines ex cellence ol quality with cheapness. Thus a practically unlimited marker is being opened. The DorirL's oil report for Jan., says: "There were completed 553 wells, with a new production of 7,150 barrels, which is an increase of 71 wells and 131 barrels ol production, while the dry holes run 22 higher than they did last month. 111 the new work there is also a decrease. The report shows 597 drilling wells, and 301 rigs, which is a difference of 29 wells and 42 rigs, and shows a net decrease of 71. Operations have been confined to tested territory, and but few wildcat ventures are reported. The main developments are in the gray sand district, from which source comes the bulk of Venango's production. Plea-ant ville and Kmlenton each have contributed their quota, which has declined eonsiilera hie since the first of la 1. month. Butler county still holds her position iu the front rank, and her phenomenal hun* dred-foot territory is the principal seat of operations. Uniformly the wells are fair producers and have good staying qualities. The veteran operator, T. W. Phillips, was lucky in bringing in one or two big wells, but 110 importance is attached to their advent, as the tcrritorj- is well de lined in that section." Ninety-three wells were completed in Butler county during the mouth, eighteen ol'which were dry, and the production of the others i put at 1,582 barrels a day, though the Haslett A Co. well, on the Humphrey, is rated at lint 75 barrels a day; the Associated Producer's 011 the Cashdollar, at 125: Greenlee No. son the Jas. Welch, at (50; llarlmatl No. I 011 the same, Staples at 75, and other wells that we have been quoting at much larger figures, at from 30 to 50. The number of wells drilling and rigs up iu the county, is put at 181. The Borough Election. Constables Blakeley and Korn gave notice of the Spring Election and designate the borough officers to be elected as fol lows: Burgess, Assistant Burgess, High Constable, Collector of Taxes, Overseer of Poor and Borough Officers. Each ward also will elect a Councilman, School Director and Constable, ail of whom will serve for three years, excepting the School Director of the 2d ward, who will serve for but two years, and each ward will also elect a Judge id' Election and two Inspectors. Considering the proposed improvements in the borough, the Council is the most important thing to look after. The terms of Messrs. Kilk, Duffy, 1". Schenck, Jos. Rockcnstein, and D. A. Heck, expire this spring, and the best men who will serve, should he secured for the vacancies. The retiring members of the School Board are, Ist ward Joseph Miller, 2ud 11. 1 ,1.

The School Board will not do any building this year as 1 the limit of indebtedness for that purpose has becu reached, but there are some im s portant settlements to make. Representative Dal/.ell Makes r His Mark. ! Washington Letter to New Yurk Suu.l The little man whoso motion it was that caused this three days' tumult, but who was completely lost sight of in its excite ment, came to the front to-day and made a reputation for himself. This man is '. John Dalzell, of Pittsburgh, who, as a ' member of the Committee on Elections, 1 has charge of the contested election case of Smith vs. Jackson, the attempt to bring 1 which before the House precipitated the parliamentary row. After having secured ' the floor to day at the end of the big fight. Mr. Dalzell presented the case of the Re t publican contestant, and with such force 1 and clearness as to compel Democrats ' even in the midst of their excitement and anger, to listen to him.

It is to lie of 12 inch casing furnished by the American Tube ,t Iron Co., of I'iltsliurgli. with the Mathcson patent joint. Speaking of ga lines, the l'ittsburgh IHxjMth'U says " It is a noteworthy fact that the agita tion about natural gas giving out does not prevent capitalists and liianufaoturiug con cerns from risking the'r tiToney to develop new fields and put in new lines. I pward of $2,000,000 have been invested in this manner within the last six months. The Manufacturers' Company pent about sSiio.- 000 in putting down their main to the Bel levernou field. The Equitable Company, composed mainly of manufacturers up the Allegheny river, laid a line to the Mnrrys ville field, anil have put in $1,000,000 for the development ol that field. The Butler county iieid is the latest, and it promises to be one of the best lields of any yet de veloped. There are two concerns working in that locality. Captain Ford has cue well down."the pressure of which is 400 pounds per minute. Several other wells have been drilled, and their pressure is such as to render them almost beyond control. Captain Ford has run a line from Sarver through Slate Lick, in Armstrong county, to Ford City below Kittanning He ex pects to get" his entire supply for the works at Ford City from that field, and later he will be able to supply the Tareu tum works also from the same field. The Standard Plato Class Company of Butler is also interested in the development of the Butler county territory, anil is now getting gas from there for the operation of the works at that place. The (irapeville. La trobo and Mt. Morris fields are flourishing and snow no signs of giving out. Several other large gas lines are talked about to be laid to Pittsburgh and other manufacturing points in this vicinity within the next two or three months, but the persons concerned are not willing to make tin' details of the plans known for a while. Instead of the c apitalists becoming alarmed over the possible I'aiiure of gas as a fuel there seems to lie an increased ac tivity in the development of the territories, from which flic product is secured, with apparently equal, if not greater success, than at any previous time.

The increasing demand and high prices paid for gentlemen's driving horses, the Mill higher prices brought by matched carriage horses and the almost fabulous prices which good track horses always bring, leave no doubt that the standard trotter is the most profitable horse to raise. Another point in favor of the good sized trottcristliathemal.es the best possible horse of all work, being quicker aud strong er in proportion to its weight as well as more tractable and intelligent than any other breed of his size. Many farmers who liavi long been desi rous of obtaining the best Ilambletonian blood but have been deterred by the infer ior size of the horses through which it was offered them will tie gratified by the ail vent to Butler county of dray Tip, TOSS. This horse stands over 10} hands high aud is compactly built; lie is inbred to llamble tou in, and inherits the blood of Messenger through eleven lines. His colts are uui forinily of good size, high style, with good trotting action and rapid walk, most of them are either bay or chestnut.
