Natural Gas Itslura n New Imw Queatioii.
A resolution was introduced in tho city
conncil tonight to begin a suit, for dam
ages, involving several hundred thousand
dollars, against the Northwestern Ohio
Natural Gas company, which has its
wells in this county adjoining those of
the city, and which supplies, the city of
Toledo with gas. Tho resolution is the
result of a long study of the legal nsjiect
of the case by Mr. Alexander, who intro
duced it, and upon his recommendation
it was referred to the city solicitor, who.
it is understood, is in favor of vigorous
ly prosecuting the suit. As the rock
prcssnre has gradually decreased, the
Northwestern company has introduced
three immense pumps at a station six
miles from t'.to city, nt a cost of toO.OtiO,
in order to forco tho gas through tho
40 miles of pipo snd suck it from tho
ground. This has greatly injured the
city's territory, nnd the claim will bo
mado that the nse of artificial means to
got the gas from under the contiguous
territory of the city is illegal. Tho ques
tion has never been raised in the courts

Another Airship Invented.
Another airship has been projected by
M. GrensfeWer, who has just received
his patent papers from Washington. The
ship is a cigar shaped nffnir. 100 feet
long and 80 feet in diameter. It will
hold 85,000 cubio feet of gas and carry
2,800 pounds. The feature of the inven
tion is that it can be steered. There are
several mechanical innovations for which
great results are promised. The inven
tion varies from most airships in thnt it
can float in the water. The framework
will be of steel or aluminium, the ribs
being covered by a light airtight cover,
which will receive several coats of var
nish. The gas will be stored in a cham
ber at each end, and there will be space
left for a cabin in the middle. In this
cabin the electric motor, anchor and all
the other mechanism will find a lodg
ment. A strong partition will separate
the machine and passenger quarters.

The death of Mr. John Terry of Rector
street from a malady brought on by a
slight cut in the face which he gut while

the razor in the barber's band was very
slight, but it was the means of admitting
into Mr. Terry's system some baneful

peared that there wonld not bo nny cold

pawned his overcoat. At tho expiration
of the pledgo, the weather still lioing
mild, ho neglected to renew it. Tho coat
not being called for, the pawnbroker
sold it to a colored man. Two or three

He was very much discomfited on learn

whom it had been sold. He found tho
fellow, paid him tho amount that ho had
paid tho pawnbroker and took his coat.
Tho fun of it is that tho colored man is

A Grrut Sfiwon For Maple Sugar.
"Unless I am greatly mistakon," snid
Loren Cnshman yesterday, "the coming
spring will bo a great season for mapk
sugar making. It is well known to thosftt
who havo engaged in that business that
a good season always follows a winter
that furnishes abnndance of cold weath
er. Tho maple sap is always sweeter
after a period of intense frost and fur
nishes a larger percentage of sugar. Not
only that, but tho trees yield a lurer
quantity of sap after a cold winter than
they do after a winter that has frequent
thaws and periods of warm weather.
Tho biiow in our county is very dorp,
and unless remarkably warm weather
should como it will bo 011 tho ground
until well along in April. Thero is such
nn immense body of it that Rngjyr mak
ing will not commence until lutu in the
season, but when wo get at it we shall

we have mado beforo in years." Nor
