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.
