OAS AND COIL
An oily ooze, salt
ooze, salt licks and
burning gas are considered coal oil
and gas blossoms when all other
conditions are favorable. Theoily
ooze, salt licks and inflamable gas,
are present in Licking creek val
ley, Juniata county, and hence
there are people who are of the
firm belief that the valley is des
tined to l)ecome oil and gas pro
ducing territory: The salt licks
were known to the first settlers
and they utilized them in various
ways. The traditions of the val
ley recount how the first settlers
made platforms in the branches of
trees near the salt licks. On moon
light nights they would seat them
selves comfortably on the platform
and await the coming of deer to
the lick. It was much easier to
shoot deer that way than to weary
themselves roaming the woods to
.get a shot at the wary game. As
to gas that was well-known in
those days. The appearance of
Jack and his Lantern, was staple
talk in every pioneer's family; and
to this day Jack and his lantern
puts in his appearance sometimes
ignis fatuns "vain foolish fire."
uch a light appeared to a young
man who was driving in a buggy
from Port Royal to Mifllintown not
long since. The light glided along
in front of the horse. The young
man quickly gave the lines to his
companion, leaped from the bng
.gy and gave chase to the light.
The light was floating about two
feet above the road-bed going in
the direction of Leonard's mill.
As there is many a slip between
the cup and the lip so there was in
this case. Just as the young man
came to the light and was ready to
grasp it in his hands it lapsed in
to darkness. The bubble had
burst. That was a gas bubble that
had escaped from the low-land
along Licking creek. What sets
gas bubbles aflame all human re
search has failed to discover. The
gas bubble that the young man
tried to capture was gliding along
in the valley that geologically cor
responds with the geological condi
tions surrounding Zook's mill dam
in the same valley, a mile and a
half higher on the stream. The
geological location of Licking creek
valley is above the wonderfully
productive oil and gas field of Fin
dley, Ohio. The Findley oil and
gas field of Ohio, has for its basis
the Trenton limestone. The Tren
ton limestone lies approximately
under Licking creek valley two
thousand feet, that is, Zook's dam
is two thousand feet above the
'Trenton lime-stone. Between Zook's
dam and the Trenton limestone
-are the Medina sand rocks that
now are valuable for making brick.
The great 'brick factory at Mt.
Union makes its brick of Medina
sand-stone taken out of Jack's
mountain. The factory men call
the Medina rock Ganister.
Who will say that the Med
ina sand, rocks hold oil! If the
Medina sand rocks hold oil We
do not say they hold oil but if
they do, they would not be so hard
to reach as the limestone. . The
Me lina lies approximately under
Zook's dam six hundred feet. The
Medina belongs to the upper Silur
ian period. The Trenton limestone

are places in the United States '
where coal oil and gas has been
found in the Marcellus slates, but
in Juniata county the slate lies on '
the surface or so near the surface '
that the oil it once contained has
long since escaped, a long ais-
tance below the Marcellus in the
geological scale coal oil and gae is
found in the Trenton limestone.

their view is correct it would be
an easy matter for coal oil and gas
to manifest themselves in such a
valley as Licking Creek Valley, I
particularly on an anticline BUCh
as Licking creek crosses in Zook's
mill dam. There are other men

enough from the days of the pion
eers there have been recitals of the
finding there of salt; of the finding
of a peculiar scum on the water,
and Jack-and-bis-lantern mamfes
The most striking manifestation
of gas aflame has recently
been made in Zook's mill dam, the
finest sheet of water in Juniata
county. The dam is onlyone-and-
a-half miles from the railroad
station at this place. What a bon
anza lor Licking creek valley
I gas and coal oil be found
there. Zook's mill dam is located
in a gap in a ridge of what a Penn
sylvania Geologist would designate
Clinton formation, Number 5 in
the geological scale of Pennsylva
nia. It is a formation high enough
above the Trenton to permit of a
deep basin for coal oil and gas. Up
to this time tbe scum on the water
has not been gathered and tested
as to its inflamable quality. The
gas revelations surprise all who
have witnessed thein. The Zook's
dam gas is not of the Jack and lan
tern manifestation. It is not a
luminous bubble, but a flame that
throws oil heat, so those who have
seen and felt its heat say. Its dis
covery was made by boys who
were fishing in the dam. By chance
a torch set fire to the gas above
water that had been agitated by a
pole in the hands of the boys.
Since that time many exhibitions
have been enjoyed and wondered
over by those who have become ac
quainted with luminous lights that
may be produced at night time
along Licking creek. Men in a
boat over water five feet deep, can
bring out a liame from the depth
of the dam. Sometimes the flame
.. i,.t, r w a
bnrns with a heat that causes those
near it to get away from it. 1 he
flame is of a light blue and reddish
color. What a chemist would say
about the color indications is not
known. The color test would be a
good one. The gas manifestations
can be produced in day-time as
well as at night with the exception
of the weird effect, which can on
ly be produced at night. The night
time manifestation it startling, like
as if some incantation was going on
below the waters and sending up
their offerings in light, blue and
red flame to flicker and wave as a
mystic wand from demon land.
A drill hole deep enough to 6tribe
the Trenton limestone would solve
the problem. Away back from
time out of date, from the time
when the white man came tothe In
dians' tent in Licking creek valley,
certain appearances of soil and wa
ter peculiar to themselves attracted
attention. Forty years ago the
present Zook's mill property be
longed to a miller named Daniel
speece. Mr. Speece had two
handsome and intelligent daugh
ters. The one married Franklin
Rhorer from whom J. H. Simons
bought the harness making busi
ness. The other daughter mar
ried Joseph Ewing a lawyer and
real estat3 dealer. When the
Speece estate became the property
of the children, the sons-in-law
became imbued with the belief
that Licking creek would become a
veritable oil creek, but they sold
the property without realizing
their expectations. An effort was
not made to test the territory for
oil, and as for gas, the invisible
stuff was not known or talked of
at that time. If Rohrer and Ew
ing could now see the manifesta
tions as reported from Zook's dam,
they could go further and immag-
lne what may be a real sight, a
line of derricks along Licking
creek spouting oil and naming gas

Every one knows that most flabea

that of the greater number of animals
and that they set tie oxygen necessary

and the gills of .fishes take this out of
the water as our lungs take It from

the gills dry, and suffocation follows.
- I The gills are very thin and may be

or Irritate them, so nature has put fil
ters, like combs, just in front of them
to strain such foreign matters out of
the water before reaching the real gills.
These filters are called "gill rakers"
and act as do tbe gratings put over
gutters to bold back trash that might
block them up, but the gutters grat
ings get clogged sometimes, and so do
tbe gill rakers. When this happens,
the fish must die, and it is well known
j that the sawdust in our streams bat
been a chief factor in the destruction
of our fresh water fishes.

Dr. Hector, the government geologist
of New Zealand, reported finding some
Hsu about 5' inches long among tbe
roots of trees at a depth of four feet
In stiff day. The place where they
were found was some 37 feet above
tbe Uokitlka river, where there bad
been a backwater during a time of
flood. Tbe mud fishes are common in
New Zealnud, and the early settlers
were surprised to dig up fish with
their potatoes, as farmers on I.ong Is

their spades will unearth iwtstoes ot

The most famous of tbe lung fishes
Is the climbing perch of India that has
often been found several feet up the
mangroves. These animals migrate
overland when their own streams fall
and are captured In great numbers by
tbe natives, to whom they ara great
delicacies. Ceylon has several species
of them. Tbe Island is dotted over
with bogs of thick, chocolate colored
mud, covered by a sod of reeds and
grasses, and this mud teems with fish.
Tbe Cingalese clear off a space and
wait till the fish come up to fill their
air bladder, when they catch them In
strong dip nets.
