August 1.—The people of Peachtree street, Atlanta’s street of fashion, were excited to-day by the publication of Mrs. Smythe’s intention to rent her handsome residence to Henry Rucker, the newly appointed negro revenue collector for Georgia, Mrs. Smythe is the wife of Major Wm. H. Smythe. who has been a federal | office-holder in Georgia ever since Gen. Grant's first term. He was an appli cant for the office of internal revenue collector under Mr. McKinley, but the office was given to the negro, largely upon signatures obtained from leaders of fashion in Atlanta. Mrs. Smythe is going to give a house party in a few daysln a letter which she wrote accompanying an invitation she remarked that she had about de cided to rent her Peachtree street home to Rucker, as some of the neigh bors seemed to prefer him as collector to her husband, and she wanted to see whether they would appreciate him as highly as a neighbor as they had en dorsed him so strongly for office.

Yesterday at the Presbyterian church, at Martin’s Ferry, the pastor, Rev. S. J. Bogle, conducted the last service that will ever be held in the old building, which will soon be razed tQ the ground in order that a new and more adequate place of worship may be built on its present site. The interior of the building was decorated with cut flowers and potted plants for the occasion, which gave it a very pleasing appearance. ri he at tendance was very large, many from the other churches being present, also a few from a distance who wished to attend the last regular service in the church that was endeared to them by tender recollections of years that have passed. The pastor’s subject for the occa sion was taken from Genesis, 2Sth chapter, 16th, 18th and 22d verses, j concerning Jacob’s vision of the ladder j that ascended into heaven, which ' caused him to erect a pillar of stone : in order that he might know the | place should he ever come by it again. The pastor said in part that the reve- . lation of God to Jacob so impressed } him that he marked the spot with a pillar composed of stones that he had used to rest his head upon that night. It was a general custom among the people of that country at that time to mark places of interest to them, in order that they might know them w'hen they came by. in this church for the last time, and before we depart from it each one of us should look back over the past and see what has been accomplished by the in fluences sent out. For a period of over fifty years the spirit of the Lord has been manifested among us in this building, more abundant sime times than at others, and now we have cirnie to what we w'ou’d cal1 on" of the mile stones in oui life. Let us look back and see what has been done for us by the direction of the spirit. We look back to our childhood days, and our feelings for familiar sights of that period rre very different from those we have for others that came later on in the marcn of life. It is nothing more than right and just that we should have a reverence for such places. Through associations formed in various parts of this world, that past becomes very dear to us. consequently this old church, erected fifty years ago. that has left its different impres sion on each one, has become very dear to us through our close associa tion with it. The spiritual condition of a commu nity is generally measured by the number of churches in a town and their condition, and nothing that can be offered unto God as an expression of spiritual faith is too good for Him. Now, we should in an expression of our spiritual life, dedicate unto the Lord a place of worship that is in keeping with our surroundings. This would not. only be an expression of Christian life, but a sign of devotion to the Lord. Letters of regret from Rev. H. N. Campbell ,of Altoona, Pa.; Rev. G. W. Chalfant, of McKeesport, and Rev. E. F. Walker, of Illinois, all former pas tors of the church who had been in vited to take part m the services, were read. The church which is soon to be town down, was built in 1841, through the earnest work of Moses Porter and Joseph Blackford, and was a very dif ferent structure then from what it is now. The site of the church was do nated by Ebenezer Martin. In 1861 the building was remodelled and a kcture room added, and again in 1875, through the influence of the pastor. Rev. G. W. Chalfant. the belfry and steeple were added. No other improve ments of interest were made until 1884, when the alcove was made in the rear of the pulpit, for the choir. The organization of the church was effected by Rev. James Alexander, of St. Clairsville, on March 31. 1841, it being the second time application had been made to organize a church of the Presbyterian denomination in the town.' The first application was refus ed because of the objection made by Rock Hill and Mount Pleasant dele gates, at the meeting of the Presby tery. who thought there would be too many churches. ANNUAL RETREAT. The annual retreat of the priests of the diocese of West Virginia will take place at St. Joseph's cathedral next week beginning on Monday, the 9th inst.. and continuing several days. All. or near ly all. of the priests of the diocese will be present, about thirty-two in number. The retreat will be conducted by the Rev. Father McCarthy, a prominent member of the Jesuit order, who has a number of relatives in this city. AN EXCELLENT SERMON. At high mass at 10:30 o’clock yester day at St. Joseph's cathedral, an excel lne sermon was preached by the Right Rev. Bishop Donohue. His theme was the paternity of God. and he showed that the old testament was the gospel of fear, and the new testament the gos pel of love. There were very large con gregations at all the Catholic churches yesterday. CATHEDRAL MISSION. A two weeks' mission will open at St. Joseph’s cathedral October 3. The first week is for women exclusively, and the second for men. The mission will be conducted by three excellent speakers from the Jesuit order.

August 1.—The shooting of the well drilled by the Paden Valley Oil Company on the Pol lock farm, in the Paden Valley dis trict, last night, was the event of the week in this vicinity and its result 13 awaited anxiously by the fraternity who have ther headquarters in this city. When they struck the pay at this location it gave every indication of be ing a producer, and after drilling to a depth of six or seven feet in the sand tne well filled up to a depth of 400 feet with pure oil free of any other sub stances. The well was cleaned out preparatory to a shot, and while wait ing about four hours on the man who did the shooting it was found that it had filled up again to about the same depth as before. iThis was all hailed out and the well shot. The result of the shot was plainly in evidence, as it threw the golden and entrancing fluid about twenty-five feet above the der rick. spraying-oil all over the surround ing territory for some distance, mak ing quite a good flow, and the man who handled the high explosives expressed the opinion that it would make from a 25 to a 50-d)arrel well. He has had a life long experience at this business and surely ought to know whereof he is speaking. Other experienced oil men were present at the shooting and they expressed their opinions in about the same strain. This well was looked upon by the | community as a rank wildcat venture, as several- of the oldest operators in the field had had leases on this land at off times but allowed it to expire, pro nouncing it as worthless stuff, but now that oil has been found in paying quantities they have become dejected over the matter and the finding of the greasy liquid at this particular point gives traces of being a connection of the famous Elk Fork gusher territory and will probably have some connec tion with the celebrated Benwood. O., pool, as it lies between the two, neith er one being over three miles distant. Mr. Lansing Farrell, of Huntington, who is president and general manager of this company, informs the Register representative that they control in the neighborhood of 1.500 acres in this val ley, and it is their intention of pushing the work of developing the territory in a vigorous manner, and that three oth er locations have been made and work will be commenced within the next ten days of putting them to drilling. Their next well will be on the Paden farm, about three quarters of a mile north east of their Pollock No. 1, and the drilling of this well will be watched with great interest among the talent, as it lies on a direct line between the Benwood and Elk Fork territory, and gives good reasons of being a producer. It will be put to pumping to-morrow. The well was shot last evening about dark and was cleaned out dur ing the night, and about 9 o clock this morning a measuring line was run. which indicated that it had filled about 900 feet. In talking with sev eral old oil men, they expressed them selves that the well would make over 500 barrels, speaking from past ex periences. This well, unlike that be ing drilled by the Proctor Oil Com pany. on the Moore farm, at Proctor, has no water at all, being free from foreign substances of all kinds. The last named concern are mak ing fairly good progress at their well, and if nothing happens to bar the ad- ! vent of the well it should reach the | pay some time this week. Operations in the Elk Fork field goes merrily on. and to a casual ob server it would appear as if there was a continual string of teams going to that ground, being heavily laden with oil well supplies of all kinds. Special to the Register. Ashland, Ky., August 1.—Represen tatives of the Florence Oil Company, of Pittsburg, have secured oil and gas leases on a large part of this county, and have had timbers sawed end ma-1 terial shipped in for the new well on ' Catlett’s creek. The exact location | will be fixed next week by the mem- j bers of the company, and will be some- , where near the old well which gave such promise as a gasser. LOW RATES ASSURED.
