Natural Cas Produces a Bis Boom.
IIersijox, la., Sopt. 20. It is doubtful
if any town in Iowa ever had sucii a
boom as llerdon is now having. It is
all on account of the natural gas found
here. Ten wells have been bored and
in every ease the gas was found at a
depth of from 115 t130 feet. The pres
sure is variously estimated at from 20 to
70 pounds to the square inch. The
llerdon Natural (las and Land company
have necured 320 acres for a town site.
They are men of wealth and experience
and are using every effort to boom the
new town. Quite a number of business
firms have been induced to locate here
and at least three manufacturing estab
lishments have been secured, viz.: A
large foundry and machine shop that
will run entirely by natural xns for heat
and power; a planing mill and a broom
factory. NeLtotiations are now going
un with several others. It is thought
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul corn
pair: will build repair shops here.

salute from Camp Washington heralded
the dawning of the day and aroused the
army of veterans and committees whose
duties called them to early trains. A
fine mist dampened the atmosphere this
morning and gradually resolved into a
steady rain. The first train this morning
brought in great crowds of veterans and
visitors. The Pacific slope had hardly

their department commander to his head

Ohio, Indiana and Illinois quietly passed
through the street, seeking shelter and

soldiers and many more.

filtering of largo numbers of old yetcrans

tracting the attention of well informed
and progressive people in many parts of
the country. The suecess of the I Icrndon
Natural Gas & Land company at Hern
don, la., has created a great excitement
in all central Iowa. There they are now
usin" cas for cooking, lighting and heat-
iu" their houses, and it is believed that
they have there gas iu sufficient quauti
ties for 'manufacturing purposes. They
have also recently discovered natural gas
within three miles of Des Moinc3. To
tho credit of Plattsinouth it can be said
that before there was any excitement at
either I Icrndon or Des Moines, the Platts

ed, and about two weeks ago, a contract

conference. Mrs. Angle .-.ewssian is uu-
first woman ever elected by the M. K.
church to this important position, and
the Nebraska conference lias the honor of

240 acres donated by the friend of the

more than a thousand people. Dr. Moore

an addrcssjwhich the Lincoln State Jour
nal pronounced one of the most eloquent
ever delivered in Lincoln. The building
will be built of pressed brick with Colo
rado sandstone trimmings, and when
finished will have cost not less than SSO,

church to concentaate its educational
work here, and crtablish a school that
will be equal to anything in the country,
an honor to the church mid worthy the
patranage of all desiring an education.
The enterprise seems fairly launched and
it is hoped the-school will be open to
receive students one year hence.
