Oil City, October 14. The death of
James M. McCray, at his residence in
Franklin, at 12.10 a. m., October 14, will
bring to the minds of manyot the old-timers
of the oil regious the recollection of the
palmy dayt of oildom, when money flowed
like water and the bootblacks would go
down in their clothes, flash their money and
offer to bet yon $50 with the ntmost non
chalance. Late in the 60's, about 1868-9,
one ot the largest wells of the district was
struck on the McCray farm, owned by the
subject of onr sketch. Oil at the time
was ranging in price from 5 to $7
per barrel, and inside of sir months
McCray's production was netting him over
HO0O per day. Great was the excitement that
lolloped and fabulous amounts were offered
lor h is farm or a lease for a part of it. Having
enough ready money for his moderate wants
he refused every offer and stored the bulk of
his production in enormous iron tanks, declar
ing "he would hold it until it was worth J10 a
barrel, uutil he had OTer 200,000 barrels stored
In different sections of the countrv where it
stood unguarded and was the prey of every
dishonest man in this section.
One party, consistinc of three men, tapped
nis tanks in what is now known as the Third
ward ot Oil Citv, and stole over 20,000 barrels.
.uivjuiiiiuk viwue io tue sum oi at least S1UU.
000. Ouine to the fact that they had su usti
tutcd water for the oil the loss was not dis
covered for some time, when they were ar
rested. Notwithstanding the fact that their
guilt was clearly proven, he allotted them to
compromise by paying about a third of what
the stolen oil was worth. After refusing sev
eral offers of $5 per barrel for the balance he
finally sold it at a trifle over Jl per barrel, tak
tnc in part p-irment therefor his preseut resi
dence in Franklin.
.iaut nueieunc reminiscences are ex
changed of his eccentricities. The following
will illustrate the character of the man. Being
in the county seat while the oil thieves were
lieinc tried, he stopped the well-known banker
Foster Mitchell, with the cxclam-tion: "I
want to borrow a little money." -All njrht"
says Mitchell, "rou can have it if you nave
pood security." "secuntyr" says James, "my
name is J lui McCray and my farm is covered
with oil." "All richt, Mr. Cray, how much do
you want," was the next answer. 'Twenty
five thousand dollars," was the answer, bo
well known was he In reputation to the banker
that the latter took him to his bank and gave
him the amount in cnp greenbacks only tak
lnc his note in hand for the same.
Noted far and near for his generosity and
prodigality, it was no wonder that he was the
prey of sharpers of every description, but snch
was his disposition up to the last that no man
worthy or unworthy, wras allowed to go away
with his wants unsatisfied. It wag a standine
saying in this section that when every other
means was exhausted to secure a lease from
the old gentleman, it was only necessary to
send some female sharp to him in the jruise of
a poor widow in distress, and with her tale of
woe she would, bv working on the old man's
sympathy, accomplish what the shamest hnsi.
?i?8Jna.n Vtb P'entyof money tailed to do.
With all his prodigality and benevolence he.
unlike tbo majority of old time "highflyers,"
has kept his farm in tact owing to the greatness
of his income and his almost inexhaustible
wealth, and by the good management of his
wife, viho died a short time since.

hearing on charges of drunkenness. Last
Friday evening Acheson was off duty, and
during the evening became intoxicated. He
met James McKce, a member of the Twelfth
Ward School Board, and one of the oldest
citizens of the ward. The men became in
volved in a heated discussion about Ache
son's sister, who had for several years been
a teacher in the O'Hara school, but who had
been dropped from the rolls. The argument
became so excited that Acheson struck Mc
Kce. The latter, notwithstanding his years,
returned the blow, and followed it up by
whipping Acheson. The latter got a monkey-wrench
from the engine house and re
turned to renew the attack.

IS Nature's effort to expel foreign sub
stances from the bronchial passages.
Frequently, this causes Inflammation
and the need of an anodyne. Rb other
expectorant or anodyne is equal to
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. It assists
Nature in ejecting the mucus, allays
lnatation, induces repose, and Is the
most popular of all cough cures.
"Of the many preparations before tho
public for the euro of colds, coughs,
bronchitis, and kindred diseases, there
is none, within the range of my experi
ence, so reliable as Ayer's Cherry Pec
toral. For years I was subject to colds,
followed by terrible coughs. About four
years ago, when so afflicted, I was ad
vised to try Ayer's Cherry Pectoral and
to lay all other remedies aside. I did
so, and within a week was well of my
cold and cough. Since then I have
always kept this preparation in the
house, and feel comparatively Secure."
Sirs. L. L. Brown, Denmark, Miss.
"A few years ago I took a severe cold
which affected my lungs. I had a ter
rible cough, and passed night after
night without sleep. The doctors gavo
me up. I tried Ayer's Cherry Pectoral,
which relieved my lungs, induced sleep,
and afforded the rest necessary for the
recovery of my strength. By the con
tinual use of the Pectoral, a permanent
cure was eff ected."--Horace Fairbrotber,

LACK OF MOTIVE P0WEE.
Scarcity of Can Advances tbo Price of
Slack coal has sustained an advance of
from 20 to 40 centr per ton, due to the scarc
ity of cars and the refusal of the Pittsburg
and Western road to ship slack and nut coal.
Iron manufacturers in the Mahoning Val
ley are short, and are now willing tb pay
big prices for it.
A prominent railroad coal operator said
yesterday that, in addition to having to put
up with the falling off in the rear's busi
ness, as compared with that of last fall, he
was obliged to suffer from the inability of
the railroad to haul his consignments. This
gentleman said that the real truth of the
matter about the coal freightage was that
the roads were short of motive power. His
firm had shipped fully 15,000 tons less than
they had last year, and now all he could
send forward to fill 3,000 tons of lake trans
portation was about 40 tons. The railroads
distributed the cars to the shippers pro
rata, and the case cited may be taken as an
example of the present position of the rail
road coal business.
