—The Anderson Bros, and Henry Trout
man came near losing tlieir lives
at a gas well on the Denny
farm in Winlield twp. a few days
ago. 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

—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.

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

Statistics of last year's petroleum ex
ports reveal a very gratifying fact. They

bein gaining ground that American pro

far East, a most important quarter. The
contrary is the case. The great population

more kindly every year, and soon they will
burn nothing else, because it combines ex

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
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.

! 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. Dalzell will be
r one of the strong men of the House. Al
' though physically he occupies little room.
*' he is one of the leading lawyers in Pitts
-1 hnrgh, and his argument to day show
' liiin to have great legal abilities. Heap
-1 pealed to the cool judgment and honest
' com 11101) sense of his Democratic colleagues,
' many of whom admitted some of the good
' points which he made.

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
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 Best Horses.
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.
Those patronizing this horse may count
with certainty on getting trotters, road
sters or carriage horses of the best type,
or improving their draft horses. lie is
