WHERE IT IS FiH ND MLNCIE AND HER Al VA.NTAllES. Bolentists advance many theories in re gard to the origiu and formation of this wonderful natural gas, not one of which has it heen possible thus far to verify. One of tbe many is that by spraying oil upon steam a gas i. formed, and that the steam from the heated portions of the earth acts upon the great reservoirs of coal oil. produc ing the so-called natural gas. But the theory most generally accepted that of i Professor Orton is that the gas is formed by the decomposition of vegetable matter. j The gas is shown in every case to be closely related to rock formation. that are heavily charged with organic matter, either anitnal .,r vegetable. Gas is found in the vloinity of l''ltshurg, where it has been utilized to a greater extent than anywhere else. Nat- i ural gas wells siinilar to our own have been in constanl use In (,'hina since a date before tbe Cbristian era. The largest known gas wells, and also the largestgas tiehls, are found in Indiana. The j manufacturing city of Miincie, the largest I city in the Indiana gas tiehls, is situated iu the oenter of the gas district, with direct i railroad counuiinications north, south, east and west. The area of the Iudiuna gas i lield is about 2,800 sipiare iniles, while that of the PeBnaylvania field is abeul sixteen sipiare miles. Not only are tbe gas lields and wells larger than those of Petinsylva nia. but the quallty of the gas is better for tuel and lighting purpoeea than any other known natural gas. V stranger visiting the city of Muncle is astouished at tlie ways in which this wonderful natural gas is used. Tbere is not a ton of coal or a cord of wood used iu a year for beating purpoeea in M UBOie, A flve-1 00m house oanbe heated aml lighted, USing the gas night and day if you wish. for from eight to ten dollars per ytar. Just think of it, about tlie price of oue tou of coal iu Vermont.

The mpid increase iu her populatiOB nat urally causes a corresponding rise iu the value of real estate. The opportiuiities for Inveetmeni to be found in Knnole are un- ' excelled, as she is bouud to grow, but, like all western cities, she lacks capital. Her natural gas seeius to be iiiexbaustble.
