been atllicted with chronic rlieumatish for
thbty years, from his right hip to his foot,
having to use a crutch and a cane, at times
so painful as to utterly incapacitate him
from attending to his b isiness. Having
tried every remedy known, without effect,
except Oi'lliland's' Pain Killer, ho was
finally induced to try it. A second applica
tion enabled him to' lay asido his crutch,
and a third cltocted a permanent cure. Mr.
Bell is a popular aud well-known citizen,
is a living monument of the effacacy of
that great medical discovery, Gilliland's
Pain Killer. The atllicted should'ask their
grocer or dru-gist for it, and try its won
derful power. Mr. Gidiland, wo under
stand, wants a respectable agent in every
town and county for it. The principal of

Oil Regions in Virginia.
A traveling correspondent of tlio
Washington Chronicle docs the oil re
gions of West Virginia, in the follow
ing style. Writing from Catlettsburg,
under dale of October 20th, he says:
I arrived here a few days since, "after
having visited a portion of the oil re
gions of West Virginia. To do that
1 returned on the JJaltitnore and Ohio
rai'road, a distance of twenty-two miles
from I'arkeishurg, and stopped nt Pe
troleum, whero I met an old friend in
the person of Colonel Van II. liuckcy,
who is agent of the west Virginia Trans
porutiou Company at that point. Tho
Colonel is a young man, who entered
the army as a private at the breaking
out of the rebellion, and rose through
t'je different grads until! he was giv
en the command of his regiment, aud
received from the hands of General
Phil. Sheridan, on tho field of Win
chester, the eagle which designated his
rank. In his company I rode horse
back up Oil Creek Run about three
miles.aud saw the works of the company
ho represents. The whole region is a
forest of derricks, and the clang of
machinery echoes throtitrli the hills ns
it drives the pumps, whose nrms can be
seen for miles around, drawing the ole
aginous fluid from "the bcwels of the
harmless earth." As this is drawn
forth it is conveyed through miles of
iron pipe ttnd emptied into reservoirs
or vuts, whence it is pumped by steam
power into the tanks on the cars set
ting on the railroad truck, and carried
to tiny point desired. This oil is the
only artiulo the company transports,
and its mode of doing so has been
brought to an almost complete system.
The miles of pipes have been laid, at
largo expense, under ground, and are
caunected with each well. For con
veying the oil frotn its sotirco to the
railroad track an agreed amount is
paid by the individual or company
working it, and thus the name of
"Transportation Company" lias been
taken by tho corporation working it.
Lying away back among tho hills,
aliout two miles from the engine which
runs this work, sits the oil center,
known as tho White Oak Region, aud
in its center lies Volcano.
On ascenJiug the top of tho hill by
the regular wagon road there appears
within sight a legion of tall ecatfold
ings, surrounding the wells which dot
the hills all around, the appearance
beintr a perfect amphitheater crowded
by a hive of busy workmen. The place
contains a population of about three
thousand, and has some large stores,
a post office, telegraph station, and a
newspaper, published weekly, this
organ of public opinion is a sprightly
sheet, well patronized with advertising,
and is entitled The Volcano Lubri
cator. It is issued by Messrs. Har-
trent & Brown, und is devoted to the
development of the resources of that
region of West Virgina and particular
I V the oil and coal. 1 lie excitement
which followed the discovery of oil in
that region in 1SG0-61, and which was
followed by largo speculations iu land,
has in a great measure, died out, but
there is an extensive and steady amotit
ot work going on in the production
and shipping of the crude petroleum
from this and all the region surround
ing and along the Little Kanawha.
There is a large rafineryon tho Purk
ersburg side of tho Ohio river, where
a considerable amount of the crude
article is made into a superior quality,
the quantity being only limited to the
capacity of the machinery, which is
kept running day and night.
Romantic Result of a Stare.
A beautiful and wealthy young la
dy, nt a social party, took oil'ciice ut
what she supposed to bo the imperti
nent gaze of a gentleman present, who
was a stranger to her, but a friend of
tho I inly o t tho house. The young lu
ll) demanded his expulsion us a condi
tion of her rcmuiuing. Explanations
ensued. The gentleman was not look
ing ut her, though beautiful enough
to attract and fasten the attention of
any one. He was looking at a tine
and costly chain that encircled tho
fair one's neck just such a one as he
had purchased for his sister in one of
the links of which having a secret
opening ho hud put his photograph.
Rut, some mouths tince, and bciote he
had an opportunity to present it to
his sister, it was stolen from him. Up
on examining the lady's chain he
touched a spring to the little beauty
unknown, and lo, tiud behold! there
was his photograph ! ,
I leave you to judge of 'he confusion
of the fair one. tMio immediately of
fered to return the piece of jewelry,
which was po'.ituy declined, for tho
time, and it is said by knowin'' ones
that she has concluded to accept of
the young man's hand aud heart, in
order that being tho poMit.-aur of the
one, she may be permuted to retain
the other. It is but justice to remark
that the young lady bought tho chain
of a traveling pedler, w ho stopped ut
her fuller's house, fur about oue-hulf
of its original coal.

The following short article, copier!
from an exchange, expresses about as
much truth in a small space as it is
possiblo to do.
"We sometimes meet with individ
uals who complain of tneir county
paper, and ctuse to take it, prefering
to subscribe for a city pnper. They
do not seem to compreheud the facts in
relation to the publication aud support
of papers. In the first place the term
of nearly all city papers are the samo
us county papers f2 for a single copy,
and the only way they can get them,
for a less price is by clubbing and send
ing for a number of copies at a time.
Theu, again, they must invariably send
the money in advance, which they sel
dom do fur their county paper. But
the principal difference consists in the
fact that it costs the publisher of the
county paper the same to set bis typo
that it does the city publisher, and set
ting is the principal expense in pub
lishing a newspaper of small circula
tion. After the type is oueo set, tht
expense then is merely for the blank
pnper and press work. Anil a paper
with a hundred thousand circulation.
can better afford to take one dollar a
year, than tho pnper with a thousand
subscribers, two dollars. Of course,
the largo city papers contain a larger
amount of reading matter than the
county pupers, but which is the most
useful aud interesting? Do the city pa
pers says anything in regard to your
own county? Nothing. Do they con
tain notices of your schools, church
meetings, improvements aud bund reels
of other local matters of interest,
which the county papers publish with
out rny ? Not an item. Do they ever
sav a word calculated to draw attention
to our county and its numerous thriv
ing towns and aid in their progress and
enterprise? Notaline. Audyetthero
are men who take contracted views of
this matter, that, unless they are get
ting as many square inches of reading
matter in theircuunty paper, as they do
in a city paper, that they are not get
ting the worth of their money. It re-,
minds us of the person who took the
largest pair of boots in the box, sim
ply becnuse they cost the same ss tha
pair much smaller, that fit.
The following piece of "economy it
equal to some that is taking place in
New York in these days: The Town
Council of Edinburgh, Scotland, have
ing received intelligence that tho rope
of the chief bell had given away, met
at a solemn dinner to discuss whether
it should be spliced at a cost of two
shillings, or replaced with a new one at
an expense of two and six pence. A
second and third dinner, costing 10
each, wero required to determine this
weighty matter, and they theu resolved
to splice the old rope, on tlie score of
economy being necessary in the ad
ministration of the pubJfo funds, of
which they declared that, "as faithfuf
stewards, they were bound to bo care
ful," thus setting a memorable exam
ple to nil future civic corporations.
The New Webter is glorious it la
perfect it distances and defies com
petition it leaves nothing to ba de
sired. As a mouunient of litearary
labor, or as a btisiuess enterprise,
magnificent iu coiiceoliotn and almost
faultless in execution, I think it equal
