become a source of pride and renown,
as well as pleasure; to our town. We

A Western paper informs us that a
company boring for oil on Highland
Creek, Kansas, a short time, ago,
struck milk or something which strong
ly resembles it. The fluid had not at
last accounts been analized or subjected
to a. close inspection, but if it turns
out to be the real genuine article, the
fortune .of the company is made sure.
All they Will have to' do will be to got
up some of our recently patented
cburns, put them to work and if the
yield of butter is equal to . our Dur
ham and Devonshire stock, they will
be able to supply enough for home
consumption, and probably reduce the
price of that necessary article even_
here, in our Eastern markets. The
price of butter inHuntingdon still keeps
up, much to the annoyance ofour good
housekeepers, and like Banquo's ghost,
it seems that it will 'not go down. Not
withstanding there is plenty of it
'manufactured in the county, it still
brings forty cents per pound, which is
.entirely too high a figure for most of
our people: Wo would advise some of
our enterprising people to imitate the
example of their neighbors, in Kansas,
and go to work and, bore for,oilln.the
valleys of Old'Efuntingclon."''Probatiky.
they nay be fortunate enough to strke
a vein of the lacteal fluid here; and
then, they . can- regulate the price 'ef
butter. to suit the - mac/res. , When thei
company out west shall have succeed •
ed in turning their Milk into butter
milk, which, no doubt, they aro under-.
taking, then some body-in this section
will surely follow suit; and strike deep
for milk, and strike:still deeper against
the price of butter.

Oar Trip to /flusklugum 'county, (Ohio)
011 Region, •
On' Wednesday evening, 15th inst.,
we left home, in company. with Mr.
James Maguire, on the 8 o'clock train
to visit the oil region of Muskingum
county, Ohio. We arrived at Pitts.
burg, (153 miles) at 3 o'clock, a. m.,
on the 16th, and immediately left there
on the Pittsburg„ & Cleveland road for
'Bellaire, 98 miles from Pittsburg,where
we changed to: Central Ohio road and
arrived at Concord at 10 o'clock, 159
miles from Pittsburg. Took a late
breakfast and an early dinner together
at 'the American House, . Capt. Z. A.
Wifson,'Proprietor, and after a litt)o
trouble procnred a horse and buggy
and started' at 1 o'clock for the oil
region. The country through which
we passed wo found to be good farm
land, but badly farmed: The land is
limestone. The, wholo country through
which- we passed for a, distance o 17
miles, to Mr. P. Stevens, Muskingum
county, is very hilly, but, not the kind
of hills we have in Pee nsyivania., There
are no ridges Such •as we have. Tho
farmers devote their attention princi
pally to the raising of stock ofall kinds. ,
Wo saw no poor cattle, Every farmer
has either . small or ,large flocks of
sheep of the best. breeds. The-'corn
crop-was heavy, and, a great 'Many
hogs Are fed for 'market. 'n
•We arrivechit Mr. r Stevensat 5 p.
m.; where , we were kindly received,
and .found first-rate accommodations.
On Friday morning two
. teuns. were
hitched up•and Mr. Maguire, President
of the Ohio .Basin Oil pompitny, Mr.
Stevens, Paymaster, Mr.. Baughman,
Superintendent; and ourself, visited to.
entities where holes were being. put
dowri, with . good Shows of oil:. We
retnrned,anci on Saturday. morning,the
Party, with. the addition of Mr. An
drew Lyon, visited Kent.,Bun, where
some fifteen holes were going down,
but none over 150 feet: Three or'four
of the wells were already yielding oil
of the best quality, worth 00 in. the
market, but not in largo' quantities.
They will most likely 'produce much
stronger as soon as the necessary ma
chinery is on the ground, and the
wells are Stink to a greater depth.. On
our return from the wells the party
were finely dinnered at the house of
Mr. Lyon,: a lively an& whole-sOuled
gentleman, such as Mr. Stevens, where
we hung up our hat. •
Sunday we remained at home with
the family of Mr. Stevens, and didn't
think of oil to any extent.
.We almost forgot to mention the
fact that on the road from Concord wo
passed over "High Hill," said'to be tbo
highest hill in the State of Ohio. It is
about four miles distrint,from Mr. Ste-
On Monday wo "took to thp woods"
again , on horseback, and visited Man's
Fork of Salt Creek, Kent Run, and
Little Salt Creek. Wells were going
down with good prospects of finding
oil. Enjoyed, an' excellent dinner at
li'razier's„ll miles from Coueord,
where Mr. Stevens met us with our
buggy. At 2p. m., we . left for Con

Sanday.Sohool Ventival,
It was our delightful privilege to at
tend a joyous festival 'given:' by the
friends of the Ennisvillo M E. Sabbath
School, on Saturday afternoon the 18th
inst. The day, had -boon selected for
moving the S. S, library and furniture
to more comfortable apartments in the
now church. At an early hoUr the lit
tle folks with nirrible,etep, and cheerful
smile, and larger folks with gladsome
hearts and well filled baskets revealed
the place of attraction. The old
church had been selected for the occa
sion, and if her dilapidated walls could
write her historY; we would have, at
least, one chapter under the'caption,
"High Carnival over my Crumbling
Ruins." While our good sisters were
loading the table with the bountiful
supply of delicaciet previded i • we' were
engaged with the children outside, in
their innocent amusements of merri.
ment and fun. All. were happy—the
chubby-cheeked Cherub, the gay little
miss, the loud romping lad, and lively
children of larger growth, mature:r
years, and silvered heads, all partici
pated in the busy sport, and rapturous
peals of hearty; healthful laughter.
The Superintendent' was the
. .
signal for a change in the programme,
and we soon found ourselves comforta
bly arranged around a; table groaning
with its weight of luxuries. It-was
feast for even a Horace - Ad enjoy, and
the jovial old poet would have 'found
a subject in some of . those . .delicious
cakes fora Vo;3. fine ode; and if the
good' old Falernian - bad been provided,
he would haire drunk right freely, no
doubt, to the health and preservation
of the good sisters.,
After all had feasted; the school Was
called up by classes and ,each scholar
loaded with library books 'or some ar
title of fernitnrd,.ancl' thug with all
their Sunday Schoel . pes, l seSsionS' they
marched in processionf• to-, the, new
church; singing,• lustily, "I' love
Sunday School." Having deposited
all in the new room; they sang their
first song of praise in .,
tb,o new temple,
and dedicated it to Almighty. God. Ap
propriateaddreases were then delivered
by Revs. S. Andersori'and o.lf. Stew

closed. We hesitate not in saying
that all felt happier and better for hay . -

Experience In Dr.:Ming.
We find the following in the report
of Dr. A. Rothroolt, late surgeon of
this District, which he has contributed
to the columns of thd Lewistown Ga•
zette. It is an epitome of the Doctor's
experience in the examination of the
yeomanry, of• this and the other coun
ties, for military service; and attached
thereto is the number examined, by
him in those "times that tried men's
souls," and bodies too: •
On the 11th day .of May, 1863, the
Board of enrollment convened at this
place, (Hollidaysburg,) organized and
divided the District into sub districts,
and prtceeded from that time in the
regular discharge of the duties of the
On the 17th of August, 1863, we
commenced the first draft, and on the
7th of September began to examine
drafted men. .
During the &rat few days I was
somewhat embarrassed in the exami
nation, and was disposed t 6 believe
that drafted men would sometimes tell
the truth; but • my. experience' soon
taught me that the' deClination of
every conscript under - exatninatioa
must be disregartied,if the surgeon 'ex
pelts- to do his duty ; faithfully , to the
Goimrnment. IMy -early-impressions
too, were that every so,lilier must enjoy
perfect health; lind bef‘fieb from bleat
person if 11(P - would endure
Atte. privationS; hardehips and ' long
marches incident- to artily- life; this
impression•led nie to putla very. liber
al construction on- the. different see
tione of,par. 85. Consequently on the
first'day I found by fact-one° to my
record, that out of 52. men examined,
29 were exempt ; - and that too, from a
lot of tolerable -- good men. I subse.
quently become more rigid as Igrew
familiar, with the4lutieS o lk.the office,
and learning to d_istinguish more clear
ly between -, the - real and feigned
ease. I held more men_ to service,
and greunceverY day . more incredulous
as to the ll'onesty , -of *drafted' and en
'relled.finep when .it is their intore:st' to
deceive the 13oard. There are, ;how-,

Who are Exempt from the ..Bounty Tax.
An impression prevails in some lc) ,
calities that taxes to pay local bounties
must bo paid by soldiers us well as
those who stayed at hbrne. But tho
facts in the case are as follows,--By
the law of 1863 miens who had served
in A Pennsylvania regiment, twelve
months as a non•comrnissioned °Meer
or private, and received an hOnorable
discharge,• is required to pay any tax
for bounty purposes. „.413:reever ) the
law of 1865 exempts Alf nonconsmis ,
sioued °facers and privates honorably
discharged; and also the property, of
soldiers' widows, minor'children of de
ceased soldiers, etc., froMpayment of
bounty tax of all kinds; and all sob.
diers discharged by reason of wounds
received in battle, or'disability incur—
