DRAKE OIL, WL'LL i'lONUMLfir.
There Is nolhlng found in fiction to
equal the wonderful story of the mar
velous development of the petroleum
industry in this country. Perhaps the
nearest one might come to It would
be found In Scheherzade'a tale of
Aladdin's lamp, the magic power thut
produced wealth and luxury beyond
coniputaiiou. The lamp of Aladdin
was no more marvelous than that
which burns "Standard, water white,
130 degrees test."
It Is not yet a half century Hinco
this Industry began. To be accurate.
It will be B0 years on August ID, 1909,
since Col. Kdwln A. F. Druke com
pleted that famous first oil weli r.our
the banks of Oil creek, a short dis
tance below the present city of Titus
Villi. The 49 years since that event
have been of the busiest In oil devel
opment. The history of the industry
Is an aggregation of romances unpar
alleled; it is one great romance of
vital and Intense interest. .
"Progressive Pennsylvania" has been
accused of a lack of civic pride. Its
monuments are few, though its notable
achievements have been many and
Its great men leglou. Oildom promises
a better record. . A magnificent monu
ment, to Col. 10. A. F. Drake stands iu
VVoodlawn cemetery. Tltusvllle.
Now. a beautiful monument, com
memorating the foundation of the In
dustry, is planned by Caundota chap
ter, Daughters of the American Revo
lution, to be erected at the site of the
Drake well. It Is desired to have this
monument unveiled on the fiftieth an
niversary of the discovery that gave
to the world a new industry un in
dustry that has done much or more
to advance civilization as the appli
cation of steam. The design of this
monument Is shown in our illustra
tion and it Is to be provided by the
voluntary contributions of the giuie
ful "sons and daughters of the oil
The crowning feature of the monu
ment Is to be a flaming torch, illumin
ating the globe. What a wealth of
suggestion! It tells the story of how
the cheap mineral oil from the earth
carried the light of Intelligence into
the dark corners of earth! Since
Drake's dlscoverv the obscure Lin
coins of the world have not been com
pelled to read by the light of blazing
pine knots on the hearth; our Frank
lins have not been forced to study
philosophy by the feeble Dicker of
sputtering tallow candles.
Humiliation, however, Is not the
whole story of this Industry. From
crude oil more than ..'PO porducts are
extracted. The pnraflnc wax. familiar
to every household, the equally uni
versal vaseline, the gasoline that has
introduced a new era of power;- the
lubricants that make the machinery
run smoothly; the naphtha that en
riches to brilliancy, all manufactured
gas. Iirilliant color dyes, photographic
developments, many medical, drugs,
come from the compounded fluid call
Natural gas, the perfect fuel. Its
supply now an Industry In itself, Is but
a branch of the new world opened by
Drake's discovery; a world of effort
and wealth developed by other geni
uses, who followed after. This monu
ment will pay tribute to every one of
them, becnuse It will be dedicated to
the vast and marvelous mining and
manufacturing industries of which the
Drake well was the foundation. It will
be a monument to the race of men
who have solved more gigantic prob
lems and met more emergencies in 50
years than were ever given In the
same space of time to any other race
of men to solve.
In this short time the men of "oil
dom" have discovered a new product,
dissolved It Into lis constituent ele
ments, devised means for storage, .cre
ated vast systems of transportation,
delivered the product to the uttormout
ends of Iho earth, devised new. ma
chinery, conquered physical obstacles
and read the book of the rocky strata
as ho other men have done. '
From that little beginning of Col.
Drake on Oil creek-, a sruaM hole of
150 fert deep, und a' few barrels' of
greasy fluid,, has grown, a-world-wide
industry. It employs, a million man;
walking beams creak lu every cllnu;
oil, flows from the Gulf of .Mexico ,'to
the Caspian and Lack again; the
driller is at work In the cradle-of the
Aryan race, In Japan, in the haunt of
the wild man of liomeov (This indus
try has added' hi Woim. of dollars .of
new, clnn wealth to tlm world's toKt
In this marvelous half century within,
tho life span of men whose hearts are
It well deserves a monument und
one built by the men who havo holp-id
j " : jw
lo create the Industry the men who
have rubbed the wonderlel lamp and
found gold In tilt h- hands. This duty
should not be left to another genera
tion. Already there are thousands en
listed in this army of modern grease
who never saw Hie site on which the
old Drake well was drilled with so
much pains and patience. Annually
hundreds of travelers puss the magic
spot and have naught to attract their
glance from the car window. Put next
year they may see the tall shaft and
the torch that, hand in hand with Lib
erty, has lighted the world, literally.
The following description is given of
the design of the Petroleum Me
morial: "The monument is In the form of a
utoiiollthic Poiio shaft healing ulol't
a bronze lantern In the form of a
globe. The shaft rests upon n single
block of stone, upon the four faces
of which are bas-reliefs symbolical of
the . departments of ' human activity
which have been most affected by (he
discovery of oil heitf, light, power and
locomotion.-, 'Jiuv base rests upon a.
Btylobate of' three high steps. Tho
stylubate is in the-center of a paved
area siiiitiitpded by a" parapet having
at the four corners salient masses,
upon the outer surface of which are
to be cut ,ltis'iiplfon telllnif of the
history of the discovery of oil by Col.
Drake and of the evolution of tho In
dustry. The whole monument Is to be
raised upon a sodded plateau and is to
be approached on all four sides by
flights of Ft steps.
The dimensions of tho monument
are as follows: Plateau, 1)4 feet
square; platform at parapet line, fi2
feet square; diameter of shaft, 5 feet
C Inches; pedestal, 8 feet square;
stylobate, 20 feet square; height of
plateau, 8 feet; height of monument,
fal feet; total height of monument and
plateau, til feet.
The locution of the old Drake well
Is on a sightly spot near the line of
the Pennsylvania railroad, so that tho
monument when completed can bo
viewed by all travelers between Pitts
burg and Ituffalo.
HIS LIFE A LUCKY ONE.
Youngster at Least Had the Great
Virtue of Cheerfulness.
The following is a genuine essay by
a ten-year-old boy:
"My life has been a very lucky one.
When I was three years old 1 fell
downstairs and cut my head. When I
was live years old 1 was looking ut
some hens and a dog bit my leg. When
I was eight I went with my brother lu
the trap and the horse fell and threw
us out of llie trap; my brother lit on
his feet and I lit on the horse's back.
Last year 1 was playing, and I ran Into
a surrey and cut my eyebrow, and it
bus left a mark. One day I went Into
the slaughter house and a big sheep
ran after me and knocked me down.
I have had a happy life."
This cheerful acceptance of what,
are usually regarded as the ills of life
reminds the writer of an old school
fellow who took part in the fight at
Klandslaagte at the beginning of the
South African war. After the engage
ment he was taken to the hospital at
Pietermarltzbiirg. As soon as he was
able he wrote home and sent his peo
ple the tunic he had worn in tho bat
tle. "You will see," he wrote, "that there
are 11 bullet holes in it. but I was
awfully lucky, only six of them hit

Woman suffrage has been carried to

ian woman describes the situation In
the Argentine city: "A Bon of recip
rocal fear seems to raise an Insur
mountable barrier between the men
und women. Whether at home, In the
.street, at banquets and public prom
enades, in the theaterg. or schools, the
two sexes, as If by a tacit understand

distance. What most strikes tho for

Why Famous Financier Hat Choien
Henry P. Davison for an Aid Suc
cess Won by Energy, Integ
rity and Brains.
New York Among the men who
have won their way to fortune and a
commanding place In the financial
world will have to be written the name
of Henry P. Davidson, late vice presi
dent of the Firsl National bank, but
who on January 1 became IV partner lit
the banking house of J. P. Morgan &
To men of finance lie name of
Henry P. Davison Is very . familiar,
and stands fur all l hut goes to make
up the successful banker and man of
affairs, for although but, 41 years of
age, Davidson has made himself fell
as a power in the money merd.
Ilenry P. Davison Is strictly a self
made man. Fvery dollar he possesses
he made from the raw material of en
ergy, hard work, application, honesty
and quick intelligence. When about
19 years ago ho came to New York
from Itrldgepoit, Conn., he was merely
a bright, active, enthusiastic young fel
low, who had had a little experience
as a bank clerk In his native town of
Troy, Pa., and in Itridgeport. He had
a few hundred dollars, but his real
capital was In his head.
The little money he had then can
not be considered as even the nucleus
of the fortune w has acquired since,
for Mr. Davison does not own his suc
cess to frugality and saving; ho owes
It. to keen business foresight and
knowledge of finance, and to the confi
dence of moneyed men he has won.
lie was born In Troy, Pa., a little
town near the northern border of tho
state, not very far from lilmira, N. Y.
Ills father was a biminess man, and
his uncles were the local bankers.
Young Davison was graduated from
the Troy high school at the age of 15
years, and when he was 10 ho was
teaching school, having In his class
soino boys older than himself.
He kept at this work for a term or
two, nnd then entered his uncle's bank
as a clerk. There ho got a fairly
good knowledge of tho banking busi
ness and widened his acquaintance so
that In a year or so he got fin offer of
a bookkeepershlp from the Poquen
nock National bank, of llridgeport,
He gavo perfect satisfaction there,
but he himself was not satisfied, for
he wanted to get Inlo the larger game
and become a New York hanking man.
So he sought nnd obtained a position
In the Astor Place hank in this city.
Ho was only 22 years old, but ho soon
became receiving oilier.
The Astor Place bank became a
branch of the Corn Exchange bank
and Davison went to the Liberty
National and In. six years worked up
from one position to nliother until ho
became president of that institution.
He resigned to become vice-president
of the First National, ami ho ha8 held
that Important position for six years,
taking ever a more and more active
and prominent purt in general banking
affairs and having his advice more and
more sought by the big men of the
During the business depression and
financial disturbances last year Mr.
Davidson was a member of tho speclul
clearing house committee which mado
a searching Investigation Into the af
fairs of many financial Institutions,
and ho took part In all the Important
meetings of the big men of Wall
street, notably those called by J. Pier
pent Morgan. .' '
Mr. Davison Is also what President
Roosevelt would call an outdoor man.
He is fond of all; athletic' sports, is a
good shot, good rider, good billiard
player. What ho does ho doeg with all
his heart, and he displays the same
energy In his umiibcmontg as in his

watched Mr. Davison's career and
studied his , character ,and. methods

a partner In his big banking house. To
Wall street men that is tho highest
indorsement which could be given, for
they know that it would not be ob

which but few men possess.
