George Hamilton who has latelv been
living in this county met his brother
James in Pittsburg last Thursday, and to
gether they left for their home at Pendle
ton, near Cincinnati. James told a news
paper reporter the following story: "Six
years ago my brother went to the Ohio oil
field, which was then being actively de
veloped,and commenced working on wells.
Three months after he left home he mys
teriously disappeared, and although I visit
ed Lima and Findlay, I conld find no trace
of him. Several months later I received a
letter from friends stating that a
man who closely resembled my brother
was living at McKean county, 1
Pa. I went there and found him working
as a driller and going by the name of
Boggs. He did not fully recognize me,"
and could give no account whatever of his
past life. He did not even know his own
name. I induced him to go home with
me,and a few weeks afterward his memory
returned, but a curious thing about him
then was that ho could not remember
where he had been or what he had done
while living as Boggs. He then went to
Barren county, Kentucky, and was work
ing as a driller when he again disappeared.
The next heard of him was in the West
Virginia field, where he was known as
Sam C'onkling. From there he went to
Butler county where be wrote to me, and
I came to Pittsburg and met bim."

John McKeown, the wealthiest oil pro
ducer on the continent, died at his home
in Washington, I'a., last Sunday, from
asthma, aged 53 years. He was born in
Ireland in 1838, came to this country in
1865, went to the oil country, and met with
varying fortune, u* lie was sold out by the
Sheriff five times. He was lucky on the
Moore farm near Parker, lucky in the
Bradford field, and very lucky in the
Washington field. At his death be owned
valuable oil property in this State, West
Virginia and Ohio, cattle lands in the
West, and timber land in the South, and
city property, altogether valued at $5,000,-
It is claimed that at the recent meeting
of oil producers at Warren, at which a
Producers' Union was formed, fifty per
cent, of the total Pennsylvania production
was represented. The proposition of the
producers is to build their refineries in the
vicinity of tire wells. It is their design to
form a stock company with an immense
caitUal, a considerable portion of which
has been subscribed by Eastern capitalists.
By refining the oil at points between I'itts
burg und Bradford, a pipe line to Philadel
phia or New York for crude oil will not be
necessary, and, therefore, was not favor
ably considered by the meeting. The pro
ducers favorable to the plans above stated
argue that even if much cheaper pipeage
rates were established to the seaboard it
would not be inimical to the independent
refining industry at inland points.
A curious phenomenon lately occurred
in Nos. 1, 4, and 5 oil wells on tho Wright
farm near Washington, Pi. Not long
since these three wells, which had been
producing 13 barrels per day for four years,
increased their production to 23 barrel*.
Tho cause of the increase was a great sur
prise to oil men, and is explained in the
following manner: About the time these
wells began to increase their production a
roaring flow of gas was struck at the MC-
Nary well, 000 feet distant, in the fifth
sand. The oil in the Wright wells is
pumped from the fifty-foot, and the
tremendous flow of gas coming up through
the hole presses heavily against the fifty
foot and forces the oil in that stratum in
tho direction of tho Wright wells and in
creases their production.

The question as to the availability ot
artificial gas as a substitute for natural gas,
appears to have been settled by the New
Castle Wire Nail Co. says the Courant.
The system they have in operation at their
rod mill in this city gives good results, and
that, too, with a saving in labor aud fuel
that should recommend it for all places
where a similar arrangement could be need.
The great rapidity with which steel ail
le's can be heated at the rod mill shows
that the same system would be equally
advantageous in rolling mills and glass
works, where an intense and uniform de
gree of heat is required, and the absence of
smoke and dirt is a desideratum. There
are only six small generators at the rod
mill, and one of them is generally under
going repairs, so that only five are in oper

Ohe day last week a deer was captured
in Diamond Valley by a gentleman named
Brumbaugh, says the Huntingdon Journal.
Coming upon the deer standing quietly in
the woods, Mr. Baumbaugh made his way
towards it, but instead of running away, as
be supposed it would, the animal lowered
its head and "went for" Mr. B. Siezing it,
by the horn, for it had only one, the other
having been broken off, he had little trouble
capturing it. After securing it was taken
to Barred and turned loose in a stable, where
it died in a day or two. Through mere
curiosity some persons about the place
disemboweled the animal and were aston
ished at being unable to find the least sign
of a liver. The deer did not appear to be
sick when captured, but it was evidently
suffering from diseases, olae it would not
have submitted to capture without an effort
to make its escape. We have often heard
it taid of men that they "had no heart,"
but this is the first instance that we ever
heard of a deer without a liver.

Court is holding night sessions this week
on the bridge case.
TBIAL LIST FOB THIS WEKK.
Kiskiminetas Bridge Co. .vs. Armstrong
and Westmoreland counties. This case
was taken up Mondaj , and will probably
occupy the time of one Judge a 1 week.
Some years ago the toll-bridge over the
river at Apollo was condemned under the
State laws and made a free bridge, but the
owners of it and the Commissioners of the
two counties interested could not agree
upon the price, hence the suit, and the
transfer of the case to a disinterested
county. Quite an array of outside talent,
including Messrs. Batliugton, Whitworth,
Taylor aiid Keenan of the two counties,
are counsel in the case.
