Tiona $i 05 Pennslyvania 95 Baraesville 85 Corning 78 New Castle 70 North Lima 68 South Lima 63 Indiana 63 From Saturday's Daily. Messrs. Jemison and Kearns, of Middlebourne, have leased a large block ofvland in and around Bears ville, in this county, on which they agree to drill a test well in 90 days from the date of their lease. W. R. Mclntyre and other citi zens and natives of this county are drilling a well on W. R. Mclntyre's lot at Stringtown. The South Penn Oil company is also drilling a well on the lands of Peter Horner, close by, and there is considerable inter est in the progress of the two wells which, if producers, will open up a new territory in that part of the oil field in this county. The wildcat well which is being drilled in Wetzel county, back of Proctor, and which was dry in the Keener and Big Injun sands, was reported yesterday as being down nearly to the top of the Berea grit sand and the well will be drilled in this evening or tomorrow. The Eastern Oil company have drilled in the well on the Morrison farm, in Roane county, this state. The location was east of the gas wells, which were drilled in some time since. The well is in the salt sand and is considered an edge well, as no oil whatever was found in the gas wells. The company have made another location on the Floyd Raines farm three quarters of a mile east cf the Morrison farm. The Ameri ^an Development com pany's well on the A. Harper farm, in the same county, which was drilled through the Berea sand, is a duster. This company is build ing a rig on the Pres Vineyard farm, in Walton district. Snyder & Co.'s well at the mouth of Five Mile run, southeast of Bore man P. O , a short distance from Wood county, has been drilled through the Berea sand and is dry. The sand was very shallow. The well is an important test, and being only six miles from Parkersburg, the natives were considerably de pressed when the well came in worthless. ?"The well on the Lacy farm, on Dry run, is drilling at 1,150 feet. From Monday's Daily. The oil developments of the past week was along the line that has been pursued for the past month. The operator is disposed to stay within defined limits and only drill when it is absolutely necessary. Operations have been uninterest ing. Some few wells have been completed but in every case they were small and located in such a manner that prevented them from having any significant bearing on the fields. The market has been closely watched, the talent expect ing an advance but their prediction failed. The field conditions are such as to warraut an advance and were there less certificates outstand ing oil would be at least one dollar per barrel. The deep sand has the lead in new work, and the South Penn Oil company is doing a large amount of drilling. They own nearly all of the leases, and without competi tion there is less interest taken in the work, The wells, while not gushers, are nearly all producers, and they have remarkable staying qualities. Elk run, Washington county, O., is a district of possibilities. As yet ' verv little is known concerning the extent of the field, but so far de velopments have been highly en-, couraging. The wells are small, doing from 25 to 50 barrels per day. The oil is found in the Be rea formation, and if like Archer's Fork, its staying qualities is some thing almost phenomenal. The ElkFork pool is the scene of considerable new work, the north east extension being very active. It is reported on good authority that the South Penn's Cunningham heirs' No. 1 is doing 100 barrels per day. It was reported by them as ?making only half of that amount. The Eastern Oil company have drilled in their No. 5 M. A. Gorrell; It is reported to be making 75 bar rels per day. Nichols & Barnsdall should get the sand at their No. 5 T. G. Haw kins this week, The Fisher Oil company are also nearing the sand at their No. 5 Isaac Hawkins. Brown & Co. are still having trouble at their No. 2 John Duval, at Lone Tree. Thompson & Co. have shut down at their No. 1 Eastman, wait for a cable. The well on the T. S. Lacy farm on Dry run, one mile west of Elk Fork, is going down very rapidly. Shannon & McCutcheon are the contractors and have made remark able time. They have averaged over 100 feet a day. The well is now over 1200 feet deep and if no accident occurs it should be com pleted by the early part of next week. Everything has been leased in reasonable distance at good prices operators are encouraged over the action of the Hickman Oil com pany's No. 2 Hickman heirs at the Jug. When it was completed near ly a month ago it was dry. They, however, found a nice sand and it was decided to pump it for a time. It began to show signs ot oil and on last Saturday it made a flow. The owners are nowj confident J wthat they will eventually have a paying ing producer. The Victor Oil company is due at their No. 3 Smith tomorrow. From Tuesday's Daily. AN IMPORTANT TEST WELL. An important well will be drilled considerably in advance of develop ments in the northeast extension of the Elk Fork pool by home talent at once. The location is on the Clendenning farm. Messrs. Robert McCormick, A. Cutler, G. O. Cut ler are out there today and the rig will be completed by early next week. Boyd Bros, have drilled in their Riggs No. 2 in Pleasants county and have a 20 barrel pumper from the shallow sand. AN INJUN DUSTER. The Victor Oil company yester day scored a duster at the Jug. The well is located on the Armstrong Smith and was designated No. 3. It was drilled through the Injun sand! with no show of oil or gas. This leaves but one well now drilling in that pool. OIL ADVANCES. The only occurrence of the day that would tend to elate the pro ducer was the advance in the price of oil. The purchasing agencies of the Standard are offering today 95c for Pennsylvania credit bal ances which is an advance of ic over yesterday's quotations. It may be somewhat slow in material izing but dollar oil is a certainty and we still advise those having oil to hold it. Field conditions as well as the world's market, demands remunerative prices for high grade oil and these demands will in a short time exact better prices.

Time and again have the good people of Bellaire been warned about the ingoing and outgoing of trains, on more than one level crossing of the C. L. & W. R. R. during the many years that Mr. Arthur Butts, gate watchman, of Bellaire, has varied a danger flag for the said company. Any pedes trian Jwho was rash enough to ignore the watchman's signals either met with an accident or was so badly scared that the lesson taught made an impression for life. Perhaps from being so long accus tomed to see his fellow citizens obey his instructions, Mr. Bubb was quicker to respond to the warning given to him by that in ward monitor which never chides without cause. Be that as it may, one thing is certain, if he had not heeded the cautions he would still be a sufferer and we may safely say he would continue to suffer. But Doan's Kidney Pills are never ap pealed to in vain. The sequel of Mr. Bubb's experience proves this. He says: "I have had kidney and urinary weakness for two and one-half years, but during the past six months was troubled severely, hav ing a dull, aching pain across the loins which extended down into the lower abdomen and groin. The se cretions from the kidneys scalded and were frequent both day and night. When I took a slight cold I was in distress every fifteen min utes. Flattering accounts of Doan's Kidney Pills that appeared in the papers induced me to get a box of them at a drug store. The one box cured me. I am well at present. I will be only too glad to recommend Doan's. Kidney Pills." Doan's Kidney Pills for sale by all dealers. Price 50c. Mailed by Foster-Milburn Co. Buffalo, N.

Since the Deficit of the City Treasury HAS BEEN MADE UP. The Council is Beginning to Talk Improvements. The Wharf Will Be Built? The Com mittee lAwaitiuic the Deed For the Lnud- The i'onnt-il Holds an Interest in*? Session? They Are Z^alonslj Gnardlng the People's Honey. The city fathers were late to as semble last evening. It was just 9 | o'clock when the mayor's gavel j rang out, "order." Those present were Mayor Law rence, Recorder Sybert, Council-: men Thistle, Hays, West and Work. The minutes of the preceding meeting were read and adopted. The street committee made no re port. The water committee reported that the water supply was short this morning and the town was for a short time in danger. This condition was brought about by the pumps not working properly at] the new station. The council was inclined to criticise Superintendent Attwood. He left at the time when his presence was most needed. The critical moment, the time when the water works needed careful attention, Mr. Att wood left on a vacation, and is now at his farm over in Ohio. The financial committee report ed that everything was going aloug nicely, and aside from this, they had no further reports to offer. Representatives of the J.T. Jones Hose Co. were present, and in sisted that some hose was badly needed. The committee appointed to buy hose reported that Mr. Bai ley had been given the order some time ago. MORE IMPROVEMENTS. A petition was presented from the property owners on Catherine street asking that the street be paved, and also McCoy avenue. On motion of West the engineer was instructed to submit estimate by next meeting. It is safe to say that the improvements will be made. " THAT WHARF. The wharf matter seems to be dragging. Blackmarr stated that the deed had been prepared but had not yet been signed by the land owners. The committee reports that they are ready to advertise for i bids as soon as the deed is exe cuted. It may be said that no bills are it present being paid by the coun cil unless they are sure that they are in every way just. A bill pre sented by E- J Millar for engineer ing caused a war of words. The bill was exorbitant but the council, after a lengthy discussion, voted to pay it. Ex Sergeant Agnew submitted a report of delinquent taxes returned by him. The matter was referred to tha finance committee, to report at next meeting. The city water works will cost at least $5,000. Extras are counting up rapidly. W. C. Jacobs presented a bill for extra work amounting to nearly one thousand dollars. There are still other charges out, and by the time all bills are filed it will cer tainly cost more than five thousand dollars. The original contract was awarded to Casto & Rosser for less than $3;8oo, and it is indeed sur prising how many alterations have been made. The plans were un practical and it seems that these changes have been made absolutely necessary to insure an ample water supply. The following bills were allowed: W. C. Jacobs $750.00 Electric Light Company.. . 203.25 Mt. State Gas Co 417 Street work 6.00 W. R. Conn 130.00 E.
