their team to get from one point to an
other quickly now use the bicycle. I

wheel. Hut the discarding of horses as the
motive power for street cars is what play

they are propelled by «!«ciricily or cable,
and the horse has gone to the rear. I re

THE TORNADO, JAN. 2nd.
Lincoln J. Carter's scenic melodrama, "The
Tornaoo," was given its first production
on any stage on Saturday of last week, at
llavlin's theatre, Chicago. His first great
success, "The fast mail," was producu
there three years ago, and by all accounts
the new play promises to be even more
popular. The sceuic eflects alone wonld
carry a much less meritorious work to suc
cess" The principal sensational feature
is a tornado scene, which is managed by
the aid of electricity aud especially con
structed mechanism, and is one ol the
fiuest and most complete effects ever
shown on the stage. The scene is a count
ry village in Wisconsin on the Fourth ol
July. All is quiet and calm. Then a
taint breeze is heard A flag on a stall
:hat had hung limp flutters gently; then
as the wind increases it stands out straight
Tho wind grows into a gale then a torna
do. The elements bowl aud the sky dark
ens Lightning vividly flashes in forked
tongues across rhe stage: roofs, fences and
debris are hurled through the air: trees
are torn up, and crashed upoa the ground,
aud a house is demolished and blown a
#ay. The jagged lightning, the roaring
oi tne elements and the confusion of th>-
tornado, are all remarkably represented
!t. is a triumph of stage realism—M. Y

The gusher that was expected on the
Dorsey farm in the Brownsdale third sand
district failed to materialize. The loca
tion of the well and the good showing it
made when first drilled into the sand gave
the impression that it would be as large as
either the Johnson or Eshelman wells. It
was not the purpose of the ow ers to drill
it deeper until Monday, but on Saturd»y
evening they decided to drill it a little
and to their surprise had only drilled a
few minutes when the bit went through
the sand and into slate The well bas
since been flowing by beads, and produc
ing about 8 barrels an honr. They only
found about 12 feet of sand. Its location
is about 1,000 feet almost due west of the
gusher on the Johnson farm, and shows
that there is little to be expected from that
The well on the Johnson farm bas been
put to pumping and is producing at the
rate of 250 barrels a day. The Eshe.'uiati
well is still flowing 30 barrels an hour.
The Smith it Patterson well on the Wm.
Kirker farm, near Whitestown, two ami
one-halt miles north of the Little Creek
developments, was pur to pumping last
Friday and the first 24 hours produced 130
bills, of oil. Litest reports from there say
it is now making at the rate of 75 bbi*.
per day. This is quite a surprise, as sev
eral wells have been drilled iu that section
which have shown some oil, but not in
paying quantities. This, however, may
be an exception and may possibly be the
means of opening up a new tielil. The oil
seams to be somewhat darker than that
found on Little Creek The owners of this
well have secured considerable territory
in this vicinity and no doubt will give it a
good test now that their well shows so fa
Hazlett & Co. on the Martin farm, some
2.000 feet north from the Kirker (arm
well, have been trying for two or thrte
months to make their well produce, but
on account of the large amount of water
to handle have had many mishaps and
have got but very little oil as yet; at times
the indications have been for a good well
and it is now hoped that the other wells
will be the means of reducing the water
aud that they have a paying well, which
they justly deserve for their patience and
Hard work trying to make it produce.

The little girl had been sick for several
days with pneumonia, and was also suffer
ing with rheumatic affection in connect
ion therewith. On Saturday evening,
after supper, the attending physician, l)r.
J. il. Fitzgerald, called to see his patient
and found her getting along nicely under
the treatment. In bis treatment for the
rheumatism the physician had prepared a
bottle of belladonna linament, ami plain
ly labelled it "poison," to be used for ex
ternal application. He instructed those
who were attending the little girl to be
eareful in handling this bottle as its con
tents were poisonous. A short time after
he had visited the patient the physician
was hastily summoned and told tnat a dose
of the poisonous liuament had been ad
ministered by mistake, out, by the time
he got to the house it was found to be too
late to save the life of the pa'.ient, and in
two hours from Ibe lime the drug had been
