A Lively W1L
A Bellaire, O., dispatch says: '.'There
is much excitement in this section over
a wonderful well on Pawpaw creek,
near Salem, a village on the Cleveland
and Marietta railroad, fifteen miles south
of Snmmerfield, Noble county. A well
was drilled to the depth of 1,400 feet
about nineteen years ago. Oil cr gas
not being found it was abandoned. Sev
eral years later water and gas com
menced coming from the hole in great
force, which threw the tubing out. That
gave it a chance and it washed out a
large cavity, forty feet in diameter.
Six or seven years ago it ceased to flow.
Jacob Martz, about two years ago, filled
the hole with logs, stone and earth and
built a large barn on stone pillars, one
of which stood in the center of the
'Recently gas burst up alongside the
pillar with a report like that of thun
der, a large flow of oil and water fol
lowed, and before a half hour passed
around the pillar began to sink and wae
soon out of sight. In twenty-eight hours
a basin some thirty-five feet in diametei
and no one can tell how deep wat
formed and was filled with water, which
is constantly in motion, and the earth
for several feet around it also moves up
and down. It is believed that the well
is an outlet for a subterranean sea of oil,
gas and salt water, and that it is in the
Maxburg oil and coal fields. Thousands
of people visited it and are afraid tc
make an investigation. The oil, when
separated from the gas and water, is oi
first class quality. The roar of escaping
gas and the underground grumbling can
be heard for miles around,
Mar Approaching the Earth.
The month of August next is expected
to bring important, if not wonderful
and sensational, developments in the
study of our mysterious heavenly little
kinswoman. Ape. 5 next Mars will ar
rive ac a point uirecny opposite" tnis
earth, which it reaches but once in fif
teen years, when the distance between
tho two planets will be reduced from
1-11,000,000 to o5,000,000 miles. Upon
that night a thousand telescopes will be
leveled at the planet, which will repose
in refulgent beauty in the southern
skies, and a thousand eyes will seek to
pierce the veil of distance that conceals
the knowledge for which science thirsts.
Wonderful results are expected by
reason of the marvelous improvements
that . have been made in astronomical
instruments within fifteen years and
since the last most favorable observation
was made. With the iowerful lenses
and the photographic appliances of to
day it will be as if the far away visitor,
tempted by curiosity, had drawn nearer
to the earth than ever. Although Mars
will be 85,000,000 miles away, the pow
erful Lick telescope will magnify her to
a 6ize as if viewed at a distance of but
17,000 miles. Washington Star.
People's Champion Kept In Quad.
May I call attention to the case of a
worthy man who is in prison for resist
ing the attempts of landowners to seize
and inclose the land of the people? The
case I refer to is that of the Rev. F.
Haydn Williams, who is incarcerated in
Holloway jail, and has now been impris
oned for a whole month because he
knocked down a wall which had been
built to inclose what had been from
time immemorial an open space, called
the Abbey plain, where the people used
to play football and other games.
The injustice of Mr. Williams' impris
onment is, that instead of being properly
tried and if it is found that he has done
wrong made to pay for the damage he
has done to the wall of the lord of the
manor, he has been sent to prison with
out trial on a charge of contempt oi
court, and there he may remain month
after month, according to the caprice ol
the court of queen's bench. This powei
of committal to prison for an indefinite
period on such a fanciful charge as con
tempt of court seems to me to be a thing
savoring of the proceedings of the court
of the star chamber, which was abolished
for its arbitrary acts by the breath oi
popular indignation. In my ignorance
I thought there was passed by the repre
sentatives of the people, for their protec
tion from arbitrary imprisonment, an act
called the habeas corpus act, which pre
vented a man from being capriciouslj
imprisoned for an. indefinite time with
out fair trial if, he has been guilty of an
y-'ciime. Hmvnefe 4a wan a geutleinax

A strange case of insanity has recent
ly come to light at Ballston. The un
fortunate person is Charles II. Morris,
thirty-two years of age and an expert
accountant. He has for a long time
been known as a man of many eccen
tricities, and has frequently been made
the object of practical jokes by sporting
men. It is thought that constant joking
and teasing have been a potent factor in
impairing his mental faculties.
He has several times lately left town
for a few days, sometimes on business,
sometimes on pleasure, and before leav
ing caused to be published in the local
papers paragraphs to the effect that he
"had gone to New York to attend a con
vention of the ragpickers at the Fifth
Avenue hotel." About two months ago
invitations were sent out announcing
that he was about to marry a well known
young woman from another town. The
invitations were bona fide, but on the
day of the wedding Morris remained in
town, denying that he had any thought
of marrying. He is considered a first
class accountant, and appears to be as
sane as any one except for these actions.
Thousands of Tons of OH.
Oil is to be used as fuel instead of coal
in all the big furnaces at the World's
fair grounds. The exposition company
will pay the Standard Oil company sev
enty cents a barrel until 1893, and then
have the privilege of getting the oil at
the lowest market price, not to exceed
72J cents a barrel. The contract will
be for perhaps the largest quantity ever
sold to one consumer. The lowest es
timate .that-has ever been made of the
amount of coal that would be burned at
Jackson park during the exposition was
75,000 tons. On this basis 225,000 bar
rels of oil would be used, but it is prob
able that the amount will be largely in
excess of that estimate. Cleveland Her
ald. Divorced for Telling Lies.
In the circuit court at Beatrice, Neb.,
Saturday, William Truesdale was grant
ed an absolute divorce from his wife,
Amelia. The petition reciting the
charges on which divorce was sued for
is tho most curious one ever filed in
court. It recites the fact that the wife
is an incorrigible gossip, whose tale tell
ing propensities and penchant for gos
siping render life with her unbearable.
Truesdale avers that in the three years
he has lived with his wife she has told
10,000 lies. "She cannot tell the truth,"
he declares in his petition, "and while
it is in the nature of a disease, I believe
it incurable. Hence I ask relief in a
divorce." Cor. Philadelphia Press.
