All parlies knowing themselves Indebted Utbis office sr. requested to settle the nm Exit Temporarily But JVol for Good. With this number we shall discontinue tbe publication of the Record as a daily paper. Tbe reason fordoing this may be summed up In a few words, and those are There Is not business enough to warrant tbe publication ol a dally paper in Petiole, urn Centre any longer! Tbe extremely low and ruiooua price of oil, and tbe moving of a large percentage of tbe population of this place, not Into the 'mouth ol b 1 er into lb jaws of death," as Tennyson expresses It, but Into tbe bands of tbe sheriff of But ler county, Is tbe sole and only cause ot the stoppage. It is witb no small leoling of regret Ibat we suspend. Tbe Record is now some thing ovtr eight yeurs old; was the first daily paper ever started in tbe Venango county oil regions, and during all tbat long period we flatter ourselves bag adhered Closely to and made common cause witb the producer of petroleum and tbe intiresta ol tbe great oil region of Pennsylvania. The Record bas alu sustained, If we do sav it ourselves, a good reputation as a local and general newspaper amoag it many compet itors throughout the region, and has fur nished daily almost a oomplete history ol the np creek oil Held. At least we have done our best Io muke it a live newspaper. Bo much by way of flattery to ourselves. As to what the paper has done towards detaining and keeping up Petroleum Ceo Ire and the honor of its citzens aud good name of the town, both in a business and other point ol view, we leave our friends and patrons to judge. We may have injur ed or wounded the feelings oi some, if so it was not Intentional. Nuff ced on that core. We may add that ws shall remain here for some time yet, and if tbe bnainess men the town are so minded and will leod just enough aid Io "maks a live of it," we will sue a psper weekly as long as we remain. Farewells we do not believe Io, but old frjends and patrons will ever be kept in micd. Good by, old friend Record. Dropped Dead. Just a we go to press wa learn tbat tbe old man named Runsell, who ha done the flagging" for tbe Oil Creek Railroad .it th Boyd Farm bridge for tbe past six years, dropped dead as be was walking aloog tbe track near Warner' ooal yard. An Inquest will be held by Justice Reynolds, tbla afternoon, wbiob we presume will develop tbe oause. At tbe request of Russell' frieods, Dr. Playford wont over and made an effort to revive bim by bleeding In the jugular vein, but It was too late as th vital spark bad fled. To the many staunch friends who have 'adberred to us through thick and II. in, 'ike a leas tick to a nigrer's shin," we ru turn thank. Wa ever hold tbem iu kind , remembranoe. May tbelr shadows nver grew less at least under present prices of oil end when tb price does go up may tbelj. shadow grow in proportion. Protpecti Who are the Bears! We are sorry to say that the immediate future ol the oil business Is by no mentis en couraglog. We bear every now " and theo curses against 'the bears. Ii is not lniprnb. able tbat some, of the dealers are tiort of oil and to cover on their contracts they contri bute) Ibelr aid to depressing tbe mokel. But, the truth is, men that are now engaged In putting up new well rig, aud, boring dowd into tbe fourth sand, are doing more to bring the price of oil down tit ten ceniB a barrel than all tbe oil dealers in tbe world. New, let those meu, who are still puah'og on develapment and kvepiug up production bavetbe consolation ol knowing that Ithey are fast throwing away their money.

Sobriety and close attention to bus iuees allways makes Its matk in a drug store.
