From Wednesday's Daily The market remaining unchang ed for so long does not seem to ter rorize the producer into selling his credit balances. They are aware of the situation and will hold for a dollar. News from the front does not reveal anything new. Captain J. T. Jones is making preparations to drill another well on Middle Island creek. The loca tion has been made on the Gorrell farm. The Henry Oil company were drilling in the sand this morning at their No. 2 Loyd Gorrell in the northeast extension of the Elk Fork pool. The well on Dry Run, Lacy farm will be started this week. Holden & Barnsdall should get the sand this week at their No. 1 Flesher, near Friendly. Our correspondent writing from Elk Fork says that the northeast extension of that pool shows in creased activity. Six wells are drilling and several locations have recently been made. The Fisher Oil company are down 1,400 feet at their No. 4 I. N. Hawkins. The Eastern Oil company will be due tomorrow at their No. 5 Margaret Gorrell. The South Penn is ready for the 6 14 casing at their No. 1 Cun ningham heirs. Brown & Company have been delayed at their No. 2 John Duval by a prolonged fishing job which may necessitate the removal of the Tig In Washington county, O., on Elk run in the Berea sand territory Cummings & Cox have shut down at their No 2 Mary Smith. This well was due yesterday and the shut down is a matter of consider able speculation. BEN WOOD, OHIO. Gas enginess have been placed at S. P. Wood wells Nos. i and 2 and pumping was started about a weel$ ago after a lapse of several months, during which time they lay in idle ness. The Fisher company owns this lease and also the Mrs. W. H. Price farm which adjoins it. The Wood wells were always small pro ducers, seldom gauging more than 30 barrels, and the company finally abandoned them after they had run down to 2 or 3 barrels a day. Mat ters ran on thus until a short time ago when Mr. Wood made a kick about his production which was be ing usurped ou the Price land by wells near the line which were be ing pumped regularly. The new arrangement was made and the wells are now doing nearly if not quite as well as they ever were. Fishers have the rig up and are ready to spud on the Clegg farm near Hunnettown. ( McDonald's Bonar well near Round Bottom is drilling on the second location, the rig having been moved uii account of lost tools. Fishers' Stephens No. 1 at Jack son's ridge is drilling at 700 feet. Their Dave Hamilton No 1 at Jackson's ridge came in dry a week ago. There was but a very small showing of oil in the well. The rig is being hauled out to the R. P. Yaho well from W. F. Wood No. 2, which they aban doned here a short time ago. Two more wells are being put down out there, on the Hunter and Joe Jackson farm 011 the ridge. From Thursday's Daity. It is reported that the Henry Oil company's No. 2 Lloyd Gorrell has been completed and is good for 125 barrels per day. This, if true, shows a slight extension to the Elk Fork pool to the northeast. Thompson & Co. 'swell on the George Eastman farm at Lone Tree will get the sand some time tomorrow. This is the only test well now drilling in that quarter of Tyler count}'. The Review notes the announce ment in the columns of their subsi dized organs, of the arrival of the distinguished (?) officials of the Standard Oil company who arei making their annual tour of inspec tion, and investigating the evi dences of wreck and ruin to indi vidual producers with which their r^ute is strewn, and which is the direct result of the filching and by these distinguished (?) officials and their unscrupulous associates. It will be remembered that just one year ago these distinguished offi cials made their regular tour of in- 1 spection, aud in their official organ of oil, published in Oil City, was a description of their journey, laying great stress on the "agricultural prosperity of the oil country, evi dences of which were particularly commented on by the distinguished (?) officials. No mention was made of the oleaginous property of pro ducers. No mention was made that the evidence of "Agricultural prosperity" was such as would in fluence these distinguished (?) offi cials to reduce the price for crude oil to 65 cents per barrel and keep it at that low level until nearly every individual producer in the whole oil country was irade bank rupt. The producers now know the purpose of the visits of these distinguished (?( officials, and have in measure, become educated to the purposes of their unscrupulous methods. Over six months of 65 cent oil when prices for refined product in the markets of the world justified at least one dol lar per barrel for all the Pennsylvania and West Virginia oil produced, opened the eyes of the producer to the fact that the "agri cultural prosperity" of the oil coun try was too much in evidence, and that their occupation of producing oil was of but of a secondary con sideration in the minds of the dis tinguished (?) officials. "Agricultural prosperity" and a declining oil production has proven the ruin of many an oil producer, and these conditions coupled with a long period of 65 cent oil enabled the Standard Oil company to ab sorb their 'property holdings at prices which were disastrously low. Possibly, while journeying over the barren hills and desolate valleys, the officials may discover evidences of a change of Sentiment, as well as evidences of the determination ofj independent producers to free | themselves from the oppression ofj their policy. Independent iron tankage is being erected to store individual oil, independent pipe lines are to be extended to take this oil to markets and a combina tion of independent capital and brains has been developed that is bouid to bring about better re sults than the mere pursuit ofj "agricultural prosperity" through out the entire length and breadth of the oil country. The visiting officials may indeed be distinguish ed (?) but the deeds for which they are distinguished are exceedingly nauseating to the independent oil producers. Their appearance in their midst will be met by the pro ducers with the contempt for which their filching policy dis tinguishes them. From Friday's Daily. Holden & Barnesdall have been compelled to shut down at their Flesher No. i, back of Friendly on account of having no water. Un less rain comes soon many other wells will have to be shut down. Thompson & Co. have been de layed at their No. i Eastman at Lone Tree owing to a lack of water. The low water will not effect de velopments in the Elk Fork pool as Treat & Crawiord can furnish an ample supply from Middle Island creek. In this north east extension of the Elk Fork pool new locations are being made almost every day: That locality, with the exception ol the deep sand territory, shows more activity than any other por tion of the southwest field. The South Penn Oil company have located their No. 5 Rose and have the rig building. Nichols & Barnsdall will begin spudding tomorrow at their No. 6, T. G. Hawkins This same company is due today at their No. 1 Cunningham heirs. The Fisher Oil company are cas ] ing today at their No. 4, I. N. Haw I kins. The Eastern Oil company will case Monday at their No. 5, M. A. Gorrell. Brown & Co. are still fishing at their No. 2, John Duval. 'Arry: "Do you pass any saloons on the way to Broadstairs, cabby?"

Fill a bottle or common glass wiih urine and let it stand twenty four hours; a sediment or settling indicates an unhealthy condition of the kidneys. When urine stains linen it is positive evidence of kid ney trouble. Too frequent desire to urinate or pain in the . back, is also convincing proof that the kidneys and bladder are out of order. WHAT TO OO. There is comfort in the knowledge so often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root, the great kidney rem edy, fulfills every wish in relieving J pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part of the urin ary passages. It corrects inability to hold urine and scalding pain in passing it, or bad effects following use of liquor, wine or beer, and over comes that unpleasant necessity of being compelled to get up many times during the night to urinate The mild and the extraordinary effect of Swamp Root is soon real ized. It stands the higher for its wonderful cures of the most dis tressing cases. If you need a medi cine you should have the best. Sold by druggists, price fifty cents and one dollar.

This gen tleman hails from Parkersburg where shooting off with the mouth is about all the people have to do and hence this fellow having had so much practice is sort of a won der to people who never lived in a mouthy town. Its wonderful. If they would just seud a Parkersburg liar with their wind blower we would see all the freaks at once. Its a great town in its line. A Care Guaranteed.

Decorative Burlaps. Tho growing use of burlaps in wall ti eat incut proves their desirability. Dec orators have found that they are espe cially useful in old rooms, where crack ed, unsightly walls or uneven partitions are to he covered. Some manufacturers put out the material with a specially prepared hack, which takes paste or pa per hangers' gluo readily and goes on with case and smoothness. It has been urged that the material is not cleanly, but it is quite as easily taken care of as paper or even painted walls. In lieu of tho dry cloth or a wet sponge which these demand burlap needs a brush, and it can be as thoroughly rid of dust as a piece of cheesecloth. Now that it is manufactured in many varieties, soft plain tints, baronial designs and tapes try patterns, its use should largely in crease. A Rife Time. Just think of it gentle reader, down in Parkersburg the Fourth of July they started their much talked of electric street railway and we are told that all day long the cars were crowded with people and then later on we learn that there were iour cars running, two of which were off the track half the time. It was a great day for the natives. Proud Par ruin. Mr. and Mrs. Arch A. Rice are the proHd parents of a fine baby boy whi'.h was born to them last evening. Asking the People of the Ualtftf States to Offer Thanksgiving to the Almighty for His Watchfnl Care of the Nation. Washington, July 6.? President McKinley at 11:40 tonight issued the following proclamation to the American people: To the people of the United States j of America: At this time when the yet fresh remembrance of the unprecedented success which attended the opera tions of the United States fleet in the bay of Manila, on the first of May last, are added the tidings of the no less glorious achievements of the naval and military arms ot our beloved country, at Santiago de Cuba, it is fitting that we should pause, and, staying the feeling ex ultation that too naturally attends great deeds wrought by our coun trymen in our country's cause, should reverently bow before the throne of divine grace and give devout praise to God, who holds the nations in the hollow of His hand, and who worketh upon them the marvels ot His high will, and who has thus far vouchsafed to us the light of His face, and led our brave soldiers and seamen to victory. I therefore ask the people of the United States upon next assem bling for divine worship in their respective places of meeting to offer thanksgiving to Almighty God, who, in his inscrutable ways, now leading our hosts upon the waters to unscathed triumph, now guiding them in a strange land through the dread shadows of death to success, even though at a fearful cost, now bearing them without accident or loss to far distant climes, has watched our cause and brought nearer the success of the right and the attainment of just and honor able peace. With the nation's thanks let there be mingled the nation's pray ers that our gallant sons may be | shielded from harm, alike on the battlefield and in the clash of fleets and be spared the scourge of suffer ing and disease while they are striv ing to uphold their nation's honor; and withal let the nation's heart be j be stilled with holy awe at the thought of the noble men who have perished as heroes die and be filled with compassionate sympathy for all those who suffer bereave ment or endure sickness and wounds by reason of the awful struggle. And, above all, let us pray with earnest fervor that He, the dispenser of all good, may speedily remove from us the untold afflictions of war, and bring to our dear land the blessings of restored peace, and to all the domain now ravaged by cruel strife the priceless boon of security and tranquility. William McKinley. Executive Mansion, Washington, July 6, 1898. The Sultan anil Our JII*sioiiarif ??. The Porte has demanded the re call of two American missionaries from the province of Aleppo, on the pretext that their mission for distri bution of relief is likely to cause disturbances. "The sick man of Europe" as he is derisively termed, is as unreasonable as his political health is feeble. As a bright con trast to his obstinacy and stupidity, the people of America are acknow ledgeing far and wide the benefi cence of the mission of Hostetter's Stomache Bitters, namely, to rel ieve and prevent malaria, rheuma tism and kidney complaint, chronic dyspepsia, constipation and liver trouble. The nervous, the weak and the infirm derive unspeakable benefit from its use, and it greatly mitigates those infirmities specially incident to advancing years. Sleep appetite, and a sensation of com fort throughout the system, ensue upon its use, which should be reg ular and- persistant. An early re sort to this fine preventive is logic al suggested to those who seek its a"d. Mnrrii d On Wednesday evening Juh' 6th at half past 9 o'clock at the resi dence of Mr. R. S. Sanders, on Water street, Mr. Frank Philips and Miss Clara Mae Sanders were united in the holy bond of matri mony, Rev. G. L. Presser officiat ing. The bride, who has been making Sistersville her temporary home, was the charming niece of Mr. R. S. Sanders. She is a member of the Presbyterian church and is a an excellent lady in every respect. The bridgroom is a member of high standing in the Baptist church of this city. After the ceremony the couple, together with the guests were treated to refresh ments by the genial hostess. Both bride and bridegroom have the best wishes of their many friends. Jack Burns, who sustained a broken ankle in a fall a few even ings ago, is still at the New Ar lington hotel.
