well started to flow at the rate of
five barrels an hour from the
Keener sand formation, but it was
immediately shut in until more

what the capacity of the well will
be cannot be estimated at this
writing. However, it is showing

Later Report.
A report received at the Review
office just previous to going to
press, stated that the well on the
Slack lot at Grandview was 'esti
mated at 600 barrels per day. The
well, however, has not yet been
drilled in. It flows at short inter
vals' at the rate of 25 barrels an
hour. Naturally, the excitement
in our neighboring town over the
big gusher, is very great.
^ Adoption Of Paper Milk
Bottles Being Considered
Wheeling milkmen are seriously
considering paper milk bottles. It
is the intention to use them in
stead of the glass ones now being
used by local dairymen and milk
dealers. While they differ some
as to the merits of the paper milk
bottles when compared with the
glass article, they seem united in
the belief that if the cost can be
made so low that the bottle can be
thrown away after being used the
invention will be introduced and
fill a long felt want. A well
known dariyman expresses the
beliet that the paper milk bottles
will be just as practical as the
paper cap now being used in the
glass bottle for a stopper. Wheel
ing milk men are interested in the
In talking with a well known
local dairyman today, we learned
the dealers here are very much in
favor of making the change. ''At
first thought I thought the idea
too costly. Hut I have figured it
out and feel sure if a paper hottlf.
made <>f ordinary straw paper,
dipped in para fine at high heat,
were used it would answer just
as well or better than the glass
bottle," said he. By the process
of parafine the bottle becomes
absolutely clean and air tight,
and is also free from any disease
germs. No matter how clean the
glass bottles are washed, there is
still danger of germs in it.
Milk dealers buy large quan
tities of glass bottles yearly. Many
of them are broken, lots of them
are not returned. It is an easy
(matter to accumulate a number of
'bottles and neglect to return them,
i By buying the paper bottles in
! large quantities it will bring the
?price below the cost of glass bot
tles where there is the additional
[expense of cleaning and breakage.
Health departments and physi
cians will be eager for the adopt
ion of the paper bottles. A local
? physician says it is impossible to
get a glass bottle clean by the or
dinary method, and its too much
trouble to clean it any other way.
Of course the glass manufacturers
will feel a change if the paper
bottle is generally adopted by
dairymen in general.
Early Closing Of Stores
During the Hot Season
The Review is decidedly in fa
vor of early closing; of tlie stores
durii\; the hot season. The ques
tion is not a matter of favor,
granted by the employer to the
employee, but is purely a question
of right, that -cannot fail to en
list reason and common sense on
the side of those in favor of early
closing. A clerk cannot give his
best service to his employer or
the patron of the store when ho
is compelled to be on duty from
twelve to sixteen hours a day. No
matter how good t7ie intentions
may be, tired nature is sure to re
bel, and as a result there is work
slothfullv done, and over-taxed
nerves giving vent to irritable
and peevish exclamations that arc
regretted as soon as spoken. Good
health is the greatest blessing of
| life, ami without it life is a dreary
'burden. That long hours and close
confinement are the cause of half
of the ills of humanity there can
be 110 doubt. The sanitariums
are filled each year with over
worked nervous wrecks from the
busy hives of industrial centers.
The employers of this and our
neighboring cities have always
shown a liberal spirit and a de
cided tendency to meet the clerks
half way in regard to this ques
tion. and we are confident when
the matter is brought to th(v at
tention of all the merchants in
this city the stores will be closed
at a more reasonable hour.
If the merchants stand together
in this matter and all close at 8
o'clock no losses from sales wll
be sustained.

St. Petersburg, May 1!). ? The
prefect of police has issued orders
that people must not be permitted
to crowd around the sick and
wounded soldiers who are to be

Charleston, W. Va., May 19. ? ?
An untiring crusade has been
inaugurated by the board of agri
culture against the spread of tu
berculosis among the cattle in dif
ferent portions of the state. The
first report of the existence of the
disease among the cattle of the
staste came from Ohio county,
where it was found necessary to
kill 46 red poll cattle of the finest
breed in the country, to prevent
the spread of the disease with
which the animals were affected.
Secretary of Agriculture 0. J.
Thompson has issued orders that
any cattle found suffering with
the malady in any portion of the
state should be killed, provided
the owner is not willing to sacri
fice the animals of his own accord.
The disease is one of the most
deadly known to veterinarian*.
The animals after becoming af
flicted gradually waste away and
die, and in the meantime the dis
ease is likely to infect all who
drink their milk. The communi
cation Sec. Thompson received
from Pres. McColloch was to the
effect that he had directed Dr. L.
N. Reefer of Wheeling, assisted by
Leonard Pearson, state veterinary
surgeon of Pennsylvania, to make
an investigation of the fine red
polled herd of i>0 cattle at the
Ogleby farm in Ohio county. The
cattle showed slight symptoms of
consumption or tuberculosis. ATI
but four yearlings were condemn
ed and were killed at the expense
of the owner. Nothing but the
hides were saved of forty-six prize
