Reminiscences When I first know E IV. Buell ho was a young man of 25, full of firo and rim. I met him coming up the Ohio on the steamer Ohio No. 3, from Ports mouth, where he was clerk in a drug store. Ed was a fine young man, and his death caused many a heart to ache. Tho family still reside in Marietta. Doctor J. D. Cotton is now about 75 years old. ' lie has practiced here ever since I was a boy. Ilis father lived on the corner just west of Front street, and was a famous physician. The old gentleman died some years since. He Jtept a drug store on Ohio street a few doors from the corner of Greene, known as the "boiler corner." Everybody knew Joel Tuttle. Ho was what is known as an "Innocent" During tho war he used to gather the boys on the boiler corner and read the war news from an old newspapor. He would give us columns of news from the front and the whereabouts of all the armies, engaged. Poor Joe died some years oro. Jl Ducan Spencer. A pleasant event and one long to be remembered was tho marriage of Leota the cleyer young daughter of Mr. A. Spencer, of Dunham to James K. Dugan, of that place. The wedding took place in the spacious parlor of tho Spencer home Thursday evening, April 9th at 8 o'clock h and was witnessed by seventy-five in--vited guests. Miss Gussie, youngest sister of the bride acted as bridesmaid and Mr. T. E Dye, of Ellenboro, W. Va., as groomsman. Tho bride was beautiful in a dress of creamy wool richly trimmed in lace nnd ribbon. The groom wore tho con ventional black. Tho bridal party stood under a canopy of ferns and white roses interlaced with smilax. Miss Minnie Wild, of Cincinnati, rendered tho wedding march and Rev. Teeters, of Barlow, performed tho cere mony, after which an elegant supper was served. Dr. J. K. Spencer and daughter, Dr. S. II. Spencer and daughter, and Miss Gussie Spencer, of Cincinnati, wore among tho invited guests. Thtf presents were costly and numer ous showing tho respect in which the young people are hold. The groom is a young farmer of cul ture and standing, while the brldo is one pf Washington county's most popu lar teachers. Mr, and Mrs. Dugan go to house keepinsrina beautiful homo of their 1 own. That their bark of life may glide smoothly down the river of time and gain at last Eternal Best is the wish of their many friends. IN THE OIL FIELDS. AT EIOI1T MILE. Tho Summit Oil Co's. well No. 5 will bo drilled in Friday. Beadqr is under way for a dcop woll pn the Hadgors farm and Barnsdall has commenced 'another on Mondon hall. A. J. Warner & Co. on the Widow Berg tract aro dowrt about 200 feet The Summit Co. aro at work drawing a rig in on tho Ritchoy farm. W. S. Gracoy and others have reached tho salt sand in their vtell back of Cornervillo and havo a hole full of water. Tho Boston Oil Co. are drilling their No. 10 on Stovons and will also have ligs up on tho Boot and Gracey farms the first of tho weok. Tho well on P. B. Ellison at Crooked Tree, a full account of which nppeared in Tuesday's Leader, was shot Wednes day and at a conservative estimate is good for 75 or 100 barrels -per day. A. serious and almost fatal accident occurred at Corning Tuesday. The Fisher well, being drilled by Smith Brothers, came in a big gasser and tho gas took fire from the forge. The usu al explosion followed and tho rig was entirely consumed. Both men were badly burned, Albert Smith more seri ously than his brother. Neither is thought to be seriously injured, how ever, though their escape was a narrow one. Sistersville, W. Va., April 21. Con nollay Bros, started a rig yesterday on the R. H. Gorrell farm. This well is located about one-half mile north by west from the Haught gas well and about one-half mile east of tho Gorrell well drilled by tho same company last winter that had a good showing of oil in it. This is tho last test well this firm will drill in that part of the coun ty, and it is to be hoped for various reasons it will prove to be a fine pro ducing well. The Fisher Bros. Oil Company have a rig up for a well nearly opposite town, around which are some five dry holes. The oil men are watching it closely to see what it will make owing to its dry surrounding. The Producers' Real Estate Com pany, of Pittsburg, who are operating on the Pres Furbee farm out on McEl roy creek, started to spudding the lat ter part of the week and aro now about 300 feet deep. The South Ponn Oil Company have a bad fishing job at their Andrew Seck man No 1 on top of the sand. It would only take about a day to drill this well in if the tools could bo gotten out. The Victor Oil Company aro drilling at about 000 feet at their No. 2 on the Pres Furbee farm out on McElroy creek. The South Penn Oil Company have the rig up and will commence drilling in a couplo of days at their No 2 on the Andrew Seckman farm. Brockunier & Co. have their rig com pleted nnd will start to spud to-morrow at their No. 1 on the C. I. Cona vtay farm out in the vicinity of Centre ville. The Wick pool in this county does not act quito as well as we would like it to and the record today shows four dry holes to three producing wells. Tho producing wells are the Bullman, Stealey and Griffith Connollay. Law rence & Moses are down 400 feet with their Bullman well and are going to drill it on down. This well is south from the producing wells in that field, and if it is a dry hole it will giye that pool a black eye that it will take some time to recover from Some producers say the wells thus far found in the Wick pool aro all edge wells and as soon as the. direction of the field is found there will be plenty of good wells drilled id. While it is true tho Indian Creek ter ritory is not showing up as well as it did some weeks ago, operations up in that field aro very active and the work of drilling new wells is being pushed to completion as rapidly as possible. A gentleman from the field yesterday told us that ho had not witnessed such activity in an oil field since the Sisters ville field was first opened, when wells were being drilled all over the town. While some wells have come in dry, in certain directions, there are other lines that will no doubt prove to bo the real ones when they are tested. No one is surrendering any leases and the rentals on farms for miles around are all under leases and good round monthly rentals. The Victor Oil Company have the lo cation made and are building tho rig for a well on their Thomas lease out on Indian creek. Shay & McMullen's No. 3 on the Weekly farm, out on Indian crbek, rather an important well, was due in the sand to-day, but up to a late hour nothing had been heard from it. The South Penn Oil Company have shut in their big gasser on tho Hender son farm. The Haught gas well, which was sucn a strong gasser ana which was sold to the Mountain State Gas Com' pany, ana oy it turned into the gaB line leading to this city, Is not produc ing enough gas now t6 run a good sized cooking stoye. The most interesting item of oil and gas news that can be given to this community this week, will be found in tho fact that Mr. Dresser will move the tools for drilling', from Bloom township to tho Boztnnn farm .east of McConnolsyille, as soon as tlio ibads aro fairly passable. Th,o well which ho will put down will be drilled to tho depth of 1300 feel. f.McConueslville Herald. . Tlin .MARKET. There wus4no change in the oil mar ket during tho past week, but the oil exchange murket would indicate u rise in the price. Tho Standard has prac tically broken up the Oil Exchange, by refusing to bo govorneil by its prices, nnd all tho excharrgo does now is to bat whether the market will go up or down. Tho hotting is firm now that it will advance. This may be a mistake, but that is tho way tho bets are boing.booked now. The urlco on exchange is 81.21 a barrel. The demand for refined oil iu barrels has again fallen off, and tho engage ments during the past week have been almost entirely for bulk shipment Tho stocks abroad are said to be only moderate, but the season of smaller consumption is approaching, and a falling off in tho foreign movement would hot prove surprising. Tho total engagements for tho week amounted to about 125,000 barrels Crude for ex port has been in fair request and sales of about 40,000 barrels are reported. An Attachment Case. An attachment caso growing out of a fight for an oil lease in tho Big Kate field, was heard this morning before Justice Jones. , Parker & Duke and Berry & Deem jointly owned a valuable lease on the Jacob Schilb farm in the Big ICato field. Schilb brought action in tho Circuit Court to have the lease declared yoid on the grounds of non-compliance of contract by not drilling a well in the time specified, and lost. McClucr appeared for the defendants, who have since had a split up among them selyes.and he found itnecessary to enter suit for ? 300 for services rendered. At tachment papers and an order of sale were issued by the Justice and Con stable Fov, who went out today to sell the lease, which is considered a very valuable one. Sentinol. Electric Bitters, Electric Bitters is a medicine suited for any season, but perhaps moro gen erally needed, when tho languid ex hausted feeling prevails, when the liver is 'orpid and sluggish and the need of a tonic ana alterative is felt. A prompt use of this medicine has often averted long and perhaps fatal bilious fevers. No medicine will act more surely in counteracting and free ing the system from tho malarial poison.

The ex pected break-down of the old pumps of tho waterworks at Wellsville, four miles east of here, occurred this after noon, when the machinery gave out, flooding the pump house. Eight thou sand people arc now without water. The city council held a special meeting tonight to confer with tho representa tives of the pump manufacturer, but the session was secret end results were not announced. A month ago tho proposition to sell 530,000 bonds to bu3f new pumps was voted down by tho people. Try Superior Sugar Corn if you want the best. ' Information comes from Toledo that a plan is afoot to consolidate all the bicycle manufactories of the country into one gigantic trust and so keep up the price. Tho plan is scarcely likely to over take shape. The industry of making bicycles has become too thor oughly diffused to admit of its concen tration. It is too easy for a little shop to pop up hero and there, just as a littlo or big distillery was forever open ing up to disturb the tranquility of the dames of the Whisky trust. A sewing machine trust is just as practicable as a bicycle trust. The sewing machine men could never agree on ttcrms that would allow their expiring patents, to maintain exhorbitant prices.

While I was pastor of the Baptist Church at Rives Junction she was brought down with Pneumonia succeeding La Grippe. Terrible parox ysms of coughing would last for hours with little interruption and it seemed as if she could not survive them.
