Tax PRESIDENT PETROLEUM COMPANY%
There is one feature connected with the
above company that is well worthy of tie at
tention of those who are about to invest in
property of this kind. We allude to the im
mense extent of oil-boring territory owned by
the company, when compared with that owned
by other companies. A reference to the ad
vertiSement in our columns, will show that
this company owns eight thousand four hun
dred acres of laud, furnishing an oil-boring
territory of over ten and one-half miles in
extent—fronting on the Allegheny river, and
on Hemlock, Porcupine and Mcßea creeks.
The immense advantage of investing in a
company of this kind is at once apparent.
There is space for a vast number of wells.
Should all of them succeed, the value of the
investment could hardly be calculated, while
if hilt a moderate proportion of them . shoUld
do so, it would pay sufficiently to satisfy the
utmost desires of any reasonable man: • J. W.
Simonton, 'Esq., the agent of ;the company at
this place, states that this feature of the case
is—as we think deservedly—attracting icon
ACCIDENT ON THE LEBANON VAI2 I I"EY RAIL

that all three. had limbs broken. We have

of Chestnut street, was_ aterneashed, as were
several belonging to other persons. A num.:
her of ears containing live stock were wrecked,:
and their contents ;badly damaged.'We are
inforMed that several were destroyed by fire,
but cannot vouch for the truth of the rumor.
It is exceedingly difficult to obtain a reliable
ccousittof a railroad accident, andliva are corn-
Polled to publish .the factrii as we hear them.
The leading" times of to-day gives the fol

On Saturday evening; while the freight train
on the Lebanon Valley. Branch 'was shifting
cars at Heidelberg Station, one mile above

FASHION, BEAUTY AND DURABILITY. —While
we could not advocate a blind adherence to
fashion, we also deprecate a studied intention
Of oddity in dress. Beauty, we fancy, consists
in the selection of colors that harmonize with

school of economy, that is a faithful study in

C.A. BANNverm-Dear Sir: I have used Brown's
Bronchial Troches, Wistar's Lozenges, and
other preparations for hoarseness and throat
troubles, and, in comparison with them all,
can cheerfully commend your own as a most
admirable specific for public speakers and
singers, in cases of hoarseness, coughs and

need, most effectually.

of speaking very frequently, and in places
where the vocal organs are very much taxed,
I have found the need of some gentle expec
lorant, and that want has been supplied in
your excellent Troches.
I consider them very far superior 16 any
Lozenges that I have ever used, In removing
!speedily that huskiness'of the voice arising
,from its too frequent use, and impairing the
effectiveness of the delivery of public addres
ses. Yours, !to.,
JNO. WALKER JACKSON,

To C. A. BANNvear—Dear Sir : Having used
your Troches, I am free to say they are the
best I have ever tried, and take great pleasure
