Company." There are about 80,000 barrels
rJAM!l ni 1ia -n.ft.1re in nmcs (tf rCDDC-
ment, and about seven weeks' refining will
be necessary with what is on nana.
A gentleman who is well posted with the
in speaking of the deal said: "The Standard
was a little short In Eome ol tne leaaius "
territory which is in the Butler and the
Washington county fields. From the crude
oil of these onlv can be made what is called
the fine, white,"or water oil of a high test.
This fine territory was nearly entirely in
the hands ot the Globe .Refining Company.
The Standard began to reach out for some or
all or it, and has now got it. Last summer
the Standard got orders for an immense
amount of this white water oil, but as they
could not furnish it, had to buy it of the
Globe Eefining Company in order to hold
the trade on the other grades of oi. The
Globe Eefining Company refined for the
Standard Company 250,000 barrels of this
white water oil. About 250,000 gallons of
this test oil is made every year lor Uncle
Sam. who has it all shipped to Jefferson
ville, Ind." .
The only independent oil works in Pitts
burg now is the Bear Creek and the Waver
lr. The latter is in tbe Eighteenth ward,
near tbe Lucy Blast Furnace, and is refin
ing to its ntmost capacity. One of these
was visited by a reporter for the purpose of
ascertaining what effect the late deal would
have on the independent refineries.
A gentleman in authority unhesitatingly
said: "We can tell you nothing about the
future, but if we are to judge from the past
there is nothing to fear. Formerly, when
the Standard leased and bought out all the
oil works around here, the independent con
cerns were little more than started audhave
been refining oil ever since, without inter
ruption, so far as leasing and selling were

"The Standard company, while they are
bound to furnish oil to these refineries
through their pipe lines as a common car
rier by tbefr Sttte charter, can raise the
price of oil and for transporting it. But the
operators of the independent refineries are
in no way nneasy about that."
The two independent refineries now refine
about 1,000 barrels of oil per diem.

AN AFFECTING MEETING.
The Leniency Bin. Welmer Exercised
Toward Her Old Knrse.
Winnie Eobinson, who Bhowed a pro
pensity for appropriating other people's
property by wholesale, was yesterday re
leased from custody through the kindness of
Mrs. John A. Weimer, the principal victim
of the enlargement of the bump of acquisi
tiveness in Winnie's cranium. v
It appeared that Mrs. Weimer had been
nursed by Winnie Irom infancy until she
was about 16 years of age, and the meeting
between Mrs. Weimer and her old nurse in
the Central station yesterday was one ot the
most affecting that has ever been seen in
that place, where peculiar incidents are an
every-day occurrence. Mrs. "Weimer pnt
her arm aronnd the neck of the woman who
cared for her in childhood, and tbe colored
woman clasped her nurseling around the
waist in a manner to remind people, as the
two rocked to and fro, of the old days in the
South when a beautiful woman 'felt and
acted to her old black "mammy" as no
The goods were returned the lady, who is

years of age, giving a large share to her old
nurse and the prisoner was released. The
claim was made, and with considerable show
of reason, that the woman was unbalanced
in her mind on account of the period of life
she had reached.
J 8 a blood disease. Until tno poison la
expelled from the system, there can
be no cure for this loathsome and
dangerous malady. Therefore, the only
effective treatment is a thorough course
of Ayer's Sarsaparilla the best of all
blood purifiers. The sooner you begin
the better ; delay is dangerous.
"I was troubled -with catarrh for over
two years. I tried various remedies,
nnd was treated by a number cf physi
cians, but received no benefit until I
began to take Ayer's Sarsaparilla. A
few bottles of this medicine cured me of
tnis troublesome complaint and com
pletely restored my health." Jesse M.
Boggs, Holman's Mills, N. C.
'When Ayer's Saisaparilla was rec
ommended to me for catarrh, I was in
clined to doubt its efficacy. Having
tried so many remedies, with little ben
efit, I had no faith that anything would
cure me. I became emaciated from loss
of appetite and Impaired digestion. I
had nearly lost the sense of smell, and
my system was badly deranged. I was
about discouraged, when a friend urged
me to try Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and re
ferred me to persons whom it had cured
of catarrh. After taking half a dozen
bottles of this medicine, X am convinced
that the only sure way of treating this
obstinate disease is through the blood."
