Very little is being done in the "Hebron pool at the present time. Recent unsatisfactory developments have put a quietus on field work, and it will be soine time before that locality will recover from the ?effects of the dusters encountered. The Carter cod South Penn Oil companies have entirely suspended opt rat ons, and the smaller operat ors are inclined to move cautious ly. ? However, Cusick, Jones & Co. are holding on with bull-dog te nacity. They drilled one dry hole, moved the rig to a second site, and after reaching a point near the top ot the sand the tools were lost. Af ter an unsuccessful fishing job of! three weeks duratiou, they aban doned the location, and again moved the ri?, which is nearly completed, at the third location. As soon as possible they will .-tart the drill. The Rock Oil company are pre -\ paring to drill. The Miles & Company well on the Pugh farm, below 'the city, reached the salt sand at a depth of 1 100 feet and filled up 200 feet. This is a deeper oil than that pre viously found iu the vicinity, and the prospects are that the well will be a fine producer. The Lockwood well No. 2, on the A. Pugli farm, was drilled in, Sunday, and made a nice flow. The well closely adjoins the Cadmus tract and js a fine producer. The Cadmus No 3 and the Lock wood No. 3, which wells are drill ing within twenty-five feef of each other, being called the "twins," are both expected to be in, today.? Marietta Register. RITCHIE COUNTY, W. VA. The Associated Producers are tearing down the rig on the An drew Miller farm on Dog Comfort run, and will erect it on the C. Heinselman farm where a location has been made. Graber, Verner & Williams have made a location ou the Carrie Scho ?e.d land, located near the mouth of Whiskey run. C D. Grteulee & Co., who have a lta>e on 200 acres of the Thomas Dye farm, have concluded to drill h well near Pike pos '.office, two milts northeast of this place. Crowds still flock tu see the big passer drilled in 011 the Alderman ?arm by the Granite Oil company. -It is undoubtedly the biggest gas well in the state. lhe nllenboro Lumber Co., dealers in rig stuff and other lum ber, have sold their entire stock and good will to D. B. Vincent, the saw mill man. Mr. Joseph Ken nedy, the old matiager, will return 10 Sistersville, but still retains his .Ritchie connty oil interests. At present there is considerable work being done in the southern part of th's county, back from Cairo. On Big run, the Starlight Oil ?company is drilling a test well on the W. H. Harkness land, and the South Penn Oil company is erect ing rigs Nos. 6 and 7 on the Fred erick Miller farm. The same com pany has completed their Andrew Hall No. 3, which is a 15- barrel salt sand producer. All the wells in this locality produce from the salt sand. The Carter Oil company has finished a dry hole on the W. Ad am:* land, on Addis run. Barnsdall & Rich have started a test well on Samuel Hatfield's faim on the North Fork of Hughes river. Brown Brunar & Co. have start ed a well on the James Griffin land, on Low Gap run, south of Corn wallis. Grace & Murphy have completed the rig lor another well on the Mil ler farm, on Plu'm run, south of Harrisville. Grayson & Barnsdall are due in today at their No. 1 Kimball, on Devil Hole. Grayson & Co,'s well on the D. Headley farm on Addis1 run, is ?down 1,200 feet. Barnsdall & Rich have begun spudding on a test well oh J. O. Lynch's farm, near Rutherford postoffice. They also have a rig up on the C. Campbell farm, at MacFarlan. R. G. Gillepsie is spudding in ^Simmons No. >5, on Elm run. .From Thursday's. Daily. Operators ? in - the shallow sand alii lyilll pDol back of Friendly have been aM in check by low water and many wells which would have been completed before this time are shut ' down. However Nichols & Barnsdali have been more fortunate and will drill in their No. i John Fonner today. This well is located nearly one half mile from production and will test quite an amount of terri tory. i In the northeast extension of the Elk Fork pool Cutler, Harvey and Company have the rig for their No. 2 Glendenning almost completed. Their No. i is still holding up at 75 barrels. The Wilson Run pool, Washing ton county, is furnishing new fea tures for speculation. The Fisher Oil company's No. 8 Edwards to the northeast is a small well. We were informed last evening by a member of the company that the well was producing about 20 bar rels per day natural. This loca tion is 1,700 feet northeast of de velopments, and shows conclusively that an outlet has been found. Yost & Co. should reach the sand at their No. 2 Poulton this after noon. BENWOOD. Special trn the Review. The Henry Oil company's I. H. Norris well, a couple of miles west of here, is drilling at twelve or four teen hundred feet, en route to the Berea sand, if oil or gas is not found sooner. They have had good luck so far. From two to five teams make the trip from here to Jackson's Ridge, daily, with sup plies. Several teams are also haul ing in there from Woodsfield regu larly, and operations are resuming a very lively aspect. Galey & Co.'s Lee Truex well No 2 came in a few days ago and is an extra large gasser; it is also making a considerable quautity of oil, being reported of equal capacity with the Hunter well in that field. Fishers are drilling in a sort of a wildcat there at this writing, and is not near any other work, which is making a good showing for a producer. Nothing definite has been learned yet. The well is 011 the Marple farm. Several more wells are going down out there that will be in in a few days, and others are being started. Schell & Culbertson Have Deen drilling about a week on their Hobbs test well, at Antioch. The Moundsville Oil company has had their Wm. Covert well, in the Berea sand, cleaned out and shot, and is a 10 barrel producer. A well drilling near Beallsville, on the Morris farm, struck gas at 400 feet, last week. This was, presumably, in the Cow run sand. Erom Friday's Dailv The little information from the fields is uninteresting. While the drill may be heard in every quarter it has not reached a point to ex cite interest. In the main, during the past two weeks the operators have been busy planning their fall camprigns and driving stakes. Rig building is, too, in vogue and work ot this nature is only inter esting inasmuch as it convinces the talent that operators do not mean to remain in comparative idle times. A great many wells will be drilled during the fall. Al ready many of these have been started. In some places low water has forced drilling wells to be shut down. This reduces the number of completed wells for the month materially. At a late hour today no word could be had from Hosford, Cowell & Co.'s well on the Thomas farm in the Elk run field. This well is located in such a manner as to make it have an important bearing on the field. The direction is north and will stop further efforts in that direction in the eveut it is dry. They had a nice showing for oil in the Injun, and in case they are dis appointed when the Berea sand is reached, it is understood they will plug the hole below the Big Injun formation and pump the well. In the northeast extension of the Elk Pork pool, Childers & Co. bare % Clancy: "Begorry, It's hard luck if a mon can't shtop to loight his poipe widout d* boss lookin t'rough d' fence at him!" a fishing job at their No. i Hen thorn which may necessitate the moving of the rig. Brown & Co. are expected to reach the sand today at their No. 2 John Duval which has been delayed by a prolonged fishing job. To the southwest of the field proper, Treat & Crawford should get the sand the early part of next week at their No. 1 Casaudra Thomas. This is an important lo cation and is being observed with more than ordinary interest. The Wilson run pool continues to be a leading attraction. Recent developments in that locality have revealed the fact that the pool is not nearly rounded up, and lease holders are making preparations for extensive operations during the fall months. Yost & Co. were due yesterday at their No. 2 Paulton, but must have been delayed, as no word has reached ihe city concern ing its completion. An important well will be start ed by Anderson and others, on Mid dle Island creek, on the Funk farm. We are informed ?by ihe parties interested that the rig will be commenced within the next ten days. Captain Jones' well, on the Mar shal farm, is still holding up nicely. It has declined very little from its initial production. Other wells in that locality are drilling without incident. A Happy Man. "I suffered with constipation and dyspepsia for five years, never having a natural operation. After eating I always felt as if there was a great lump in my stomach. Four packages of Thompson's Tonic Tea entirely cured me.?T. M. Mc Cracken, 323 Washington Avenue, Oil City, Pa. Said by C. W. Grier. The West Virginia Herald is a new paper to be published Sundays at Charleston. We are informed that it is to be "the greatest news psper ever published in West Vir ginia." That will be terrible, but we fear it won't last long. Called Home. Benjamin C. Davenport, born November 3, 1S61, died September 1, 1898 at his home in Tyler coun ty, W. Va. Religious services in Long Reach church were conducted by Rev. Ownby. Funeral services were performed by the Friendly Lodge F. A. A. M., of which the deceased was a member. Matamoras Lodge was represented by the officers and many brethren of their Lodge. The services in the church and at the grave were very touching. The immense number in attendance gave proof of the high esteem in which Bro. Davenport was held by all who ?new him. Port Davenport was a man in every sense, loved and honored by all who knew him. Those who knew him best loved him most. A good man has gone from among us. Tyler county has lost one of her best citizens. The bereaved family has lost a dutiful son, a kind brother and a loving husband and father. We extend heartfelt sym pathies to the bereaved family. ? New Matamoras Mail.

Butler, of pack-train No. 3, writing from Santiago de Cuba, 011 July 23d, says: "We all had diar rhoea in more or less violent form, and when we landed we had no time to see a doctor, for it was a case of rush night and day to keep the troops supplied with ammuni tion and rations, tut thanks to Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, we were able to keep at work and keep our health; in fact, I sincerely believe that at one critical time this medi cine was the indirect saviour of our armv, for if the packers iiad been unable to work there would have been 110 way of getting to the front. There were no roads that a wagon train could use. My comrade and myselt had the good fortune to lay in a supply of tnis medicine for our pack train before we left Tampa, and I know in four cases it abso lutely saved life."

Clear your complexion? cure your headache. 35 cents, all drug; Another Kick. We take the following from the Ironton, 0 , Daily Irontonian, and it proves to be a "strong oM kick," Camp Alger, Aug, 3t, '$8. Dear Old Irontonian: ? We sol diers are never done kicking, some times we kick just to be kicking, but there are other times and this is one of them. Listen: So*ne months ago the Colonel of the ''dear old 7th" had a chance to go to the islands and see some service, but "big hearted" man that he is, said let some other regiment that is so anxious to go and we will stay. Now that there is no chance to get his "dear old bones" hurt, he wants to be brave and wipe the face off the earth with the villianous Spaniards. The boys reading the papers and seeing that the President said he would let the regiments that wanted to go to Cuba, and he would muster out the rest. Well, the boys hearing of this, started a petition to the Secre tary of War and President, saying that we would rather be mustered out than do the policeman act for the next two years. This petition was signed by a number of the boys before it fell into the hands of the "dear" col onel. Seeing it, and fearing that it would knock him out of a job that was paying him more in four months than he ever received be fore in a year, held to it, and is sued an order to reduce every non commission officer to the ranks. Of course none of the common of ficers signed it, for most of them were alraid of "Old Blue Beard" and the rest, with very few excep tions, are in the same fix as he is, to refuse every signer a pass when he was entitled to it. I suppose we will all be shot some of these fine mornings at sun rise, but what is the difference? If we can't die for our country we can for our colonel. But who can blame our colonel? All he has to do is to sit around in the shade and drink some of that good old Tom and Jerry. If the people could see how the boys are treated it would surprise some of them and not very pleas antly either. You would think that we were so many mules with a big U. S. stamped on our backs. I think it will be pretty bard to get state guard when this farcfe is ov< Well, I will stop for I am afra that you will think that this kick is too long. A Kicker With a Just Causb. Fatally Injured. John Smith, a resident of Mon roe county, O., fell from his wagon near Matamoras, last evening, and was probably fatally injured. He was hauling lertilizer, and his wagon was heavily loaded. In go ing over a rough point in the road, he, in some manner, lost his balance and was thrown in front of the wagon, which passed directly over his chest. He was carried to a farm house nearby, and medical aid was summoned. The attending physicians do not anticipate re covery, and his family were notified last night. This morning he was still living.
