"One Hundred in the Shade."
HY OLIVER wendkvl holmes.
At list two Fahrenheit* blew up,
And killed two children small;
And one barometer shot dead
A tutor with its ball.
Now :? 1 1 day long the locust sang.
Among the leafless trees:
Three t.cw hotels warped inside out,
The pumps could only whce?.e;
Anp ripe old wine, that twer.ty years
Had cobwcbbed o'er in vain,
'Came spouting through the rotten corks,
I.ike July's best champagne!
The Worcester locomotive did
Their trip in half au hour;
The I.owell cars ran fort} miles
Before they checked the power:
And brimstone soon became a drug
And locofocos fell.
All isked for ice, but everywhere
Saltpetre was to sell.
J'lump men of morning ordered tights,
lint, ere the smithing nouns,
Their candle moulds had g-own as loose
As Cossack pantaloons!
The dogs run mail? men could not try,
It water they Would choose:
A h"r?e fell dead? he only lett
Four red-hot, rusty shoes!
And all about the warehouse steps
Were angry men in droves.
Crashing and splintering thro' the doors
To smash thi patent stoves!

Attaching Raiircad Trains.

Iron; the depot (of which outrage their

l_v.) Mr. Superintendent A. A.Fdlsom.
recalls and instance wherein the game
of the olficers was effectually blocked.
It occurred during the administration
of his predecessor in th? superinten
Jcncy of the Hoston and Providence
Railroad, justasthe morning Shore
Line train was abdut to leave, one ol
lie creditors of the Providence &
Stonington Railroad placed an attach
ment upon a car belonging to tlial com
,\anv and located in the middle of the
rain. Mr. Nason, then superinten
lent, requested that it be vacated, but
he creditor was inexorable. The dan
gers of il?. lay were explained, as wa
also the fact that a hundred innocent
,ieopIe were being made to suffer for the
.vrong doing of a corporation; but all
?xplanations were in rain, and the
creditor continued stubbornly Co insist
upon what h<- deemed the maintenance
>f his legal rights. Finally, alter the
train had been delayed fifteen minute*,
Mr. Nason hit upon a bright idea.
"Very well, sir," he said, "There i -
uiui car. Take it out of our depot."
"What do you mean sir?"
"Just what I say, exactly. You havi
attached a car belonging to the Stori
: nylon & Providence Railroad Com
j>any, and I want you to take it away
from the Uoston X Providence Rail
road depot. Separate it from our cart
and remove it at once."'
"A!l r gilt, sir; I wiM do so. Just
started lip your engine and we'll take
ihe car out of your way a jiffy."
"Not by a confounded sight! The car
is in your clnrgc and not mine, and
none of the property of this company
?.hall be tued to help you. And 1
want tell you, too, that every moment
vou allow the car to remain here only
increases nVv bill against you for dam
ages."
"Hut how khall I remove it ?"
"That is your own business and not
mine. One thing is certain. You
will remove it soon."
"You're insolent, sir! You place
me in a position from which I can't
L-xtricate myself. 1 vacate the attach
ment at once. Take the car if you
want it."
"I don't want the car, sir; but I'il
lake it out of my depot, and if you
;are to serve the attachment then, go
iheud!"
The necessary orders were given
md the train started of at a high rate,
jf speed, so swiftly that creditor was
inable to catch it in time to carry out
lis purpose. The proceedings of Mr.!
\'a-o:i proved .1 great success. ? S<th:r

The Production Increases.
The production in the lower rivt?r
districts continues to increase at a most
astounding rate. Cheap oil, and plen
ty of it, seems ;o he th" order of. the
day, and there appears to be a certain
ty about the success of development
this vcar which cxcccds anything hith
erto known in the history of 'he Oil
Region.
Since Friday night; H. L. Taylor &
Co. struck their new well, which is no^V
doing fully 1,000 barrels per day. Mil
lichamp & Brothers struck a veil be
tween the Troutman well and Millers
town, now doing -450 barrels per day,
The Mercer well, 011 Brown Farm,
struck Saturday morning, is doing 300
barrels per day, nr.d a few hours pre
viously Gordon & Hoover struck a ^>50
barrel well on the McCiellan farm. It
is estimated by good judges that the
new strikes wihint ihepast ten or twelve
days will average at least 6.000 barrels
per day.
I> is also a most remarkable fact that
the oil is being shipped from the region
as fast a* produced. A groat portion
of it is refined and sent to Eu-ope.
where new cnanncis of trade and con
sumption are being opened up. Our
cheap refined oil is also creating sad
havoc among shalr; Oil refiners, and
it has the tendency t'o drive this infe
rior article out efthe market. It is also
probable that the high tire tests and
safe qudlitTes of refined oil now being
manufactured for home consumption
may tend greatly to increase Ihehome
demand. Petroleum makes by far the
cheapest and best Hi;ht ir^ the world,
and there is 11O good reason why it
should not be given to the world in
such a shape that it will be absolutely
>afe. We are undergoing a violent
competition in development, which
1 hreatens to depress the price of cu:*
;rrcat staple to a few'er point than it
has ever been known before, and far
below the ioSt rf production. This
must, however, in time rectify itself,
ns it would seem to he utter foil v to
attempt to start a ncv crop of wells
until tl.e present crop begins to show
-igns of exhaustion, and the price has
reacted to something like a remunera
te figure. ? Herald.
? In these dull dog days, the } onng
"oiks adopt many means ot' whilin?
away the hours. The V"ci*e is an
artificial spider, attached tc nn India
rubber string. The inodc is to slip up
'uiiiiul one and s.;rpend it before t!ie
face. Of course it has a very startling
and satisfactory effect, and a good
augh is had at the expense ot the duped
party. A few days ago, a very prac
ical fellow got hold of a genuine hug,
attached it to a sisir.g, and sjspended
it before a young m:.n. The latter, to
?diow his familiar. I y Vvifh the trick, and
that he couldn't be frightened, grabbed
it with his mouth. !!o io now known
