Vacant Property in North Warwood Can’t be Bought 1 CAS BOOM MOVING SOUTHWARD • AND PROPERTY OWNERS WILL NOT SELL. Small Gas \Vell Brings Owner Income Enough to Pay for Property In a Year. It would be no use for a poor man or even a rich one to try to buy prop • 'Tty in the northern part of the town of Warwood at the present time. The l.in<l cannot be bought. The gas bug lias been buzzing too busily In that ^•“-•dfcinity lately, and the land owners can see more money in sight by bold ing onto the property than they can • by turning it over to some one else, « > en though a high price Is offered. The striking of a big gas well on the Oxtoby property on Wllsou ( vrnne in the northern part of the t wn Monday caused the lot owners to lighten their grips on their land in that vicinity. The s'riktng of this well indicates to the oil and gas men that the gas belt is along Gleuu's Hun ml to the south rather than to the north of the stream, wells on the r orth having come in very light. This brings all the desirable drilling ground In ihe town of Warwood. Considering that the income from even a small town lot would be over Il’.DOO a year for the owner If the lease was made with a company with the agreement tiial one-eighth of the gas found should belong to the own er of the land, and the well produced only a million cubic feet a day. and that the ineome would be larger If a heavier flow of gas took place. It Is no wonder the property owners will not sell. The land owners are also beginning lo take chances themselves. Instead ‘ot taking the offer of the gas com |.imes make that of $.100 a year for r property owners are doing their own WORLD’S PEACE ADVOCATE HERE Baron ns Constant, of the French Benate. has Just arrived to make a tour of tins country !r the Interests of world peace He sill lecture In •eTeral of the big cities j drilling and most of these have lieen * successful sa they are growing wealthy Just as fast as their wells ; can pour the gas Into the mnlns of the companies that buy the product Old nen, the eldest bear In the Bronx Zoo, New York, dtod of a broken heart, attendants say. follow ing the removal from his cage of his j mate. HERE ARE SOME OLD AND SOME NEW FACES TO BE SEEN IN CONGRESS f I b~ ---- ONSLOW GETS TIMELY ADVICE FROM M’GRAWj TOLD HIM TO WEAR WIND PAD WHEN HE SLEPT. Jack Onalow. formerly of the Mt. \ Pleasant, Ohio, teanv who 1* making a strong bid for a catching job on the Fort Wayne bunch, received some timely advice while playing with the I’allaa, Texas, team. Just for calling Johnny McGraw, the scrappy New York manager, l»y his right name, in stead of using "Muggsy.” McGraw hates* a fresh youngsters, but Ons low's story Is best told ir. the follow ing: "In 19W when I reported to Dallas," recites Onslow In telling of his ex periences the year - he tnoke into league ball, ' there were eight of tm trying out as cvcherr on the club. Some of them were qui c clover boy:., and. believe me. ; w:.a a li'tle leary about making ^oml “We were ph. i.g a series of ev hlblt'on games v.tii the New York Giants, who were ;n training at Pal las then, and all eight of tu catchers were longing for r. eh;.n#-,. to w >rk hav a of the nat r: order tlia: we rsi^ht show our n.■•anger that wo h id the goods on us "McGraw had evidently taken a lik ing to me. One day while 1 was rent ed on the Pnllas bench he walked over and said: ‘Hey, there, youngster, let's you and 1 play a Tittle pars.' Naturally I was elated to think that the manager of the New Y'ork Giants had (licked on me to warm up with and I was not slow in accepting the invitation. "We walked over a little out of the way of the crowd of players and started to lobbing the ball back and forth. 'Say.' Johnny said to me in a fatherly sort of way. 'If you want to make good just keep that chest pro tector on all the time. Sleep with It on and show your manager that you want to work.’ "1 accepted his advice,'' declared Onslow, "and was working all the time from then on. One hy one the catchers were dropped until but two of us were left. I served as second catcher that season, and worked in but a few games. 1 landed a job, however, and last season was made llie regular backstop. That little tip liuuded me hy McGraw certainly helped some. 1 only possessed nine ty cents when McGraw gave mo that little talk, and I Just had to place or hum It from Dallas. I didn't call him Muggsy. and he gave me n bit of ad rice wmcii proven a lire saver. [IF INTEREST TO WOMEN TABLE DECORATIONS.
