Word reaches us today that Kim
wood is building air castles of immense
proportions over tho discovery of oil
or petroleum in a well on the farm of
Chris. Engelking, near tho depot
south of that town.
Mr. Engelking's farm joins the cor
poration on tho south, and it seems a
few days ago ho had a well dug near a
draw on a patch of ground where the
grass refused to grow, and which was j
supposed to bo full of alkali. Tho
well was completed at a depth of forty
feet, and while boring the well the
smell of petroleum was. noticeable.
Since its completion tho oil sepes
up through tho bottom and makes
quite a scum on the water. Several
bottles of it have been scour d and
sent to Omaha and othor places for
testing. That it is a good quality ot
oil there is no doubt, but as to the
quantity nothing is known.
Men from Omana are aheady on tho
ground securing oil leases, anct pros
pecting will doubtless betrin in a few
days by boring test wells to sand
ock and learn how much of the oil is
stored in the regions below. The town
people are greatly excited over the
flattering prospect, and ere long we
may see Elmwotd as tho manufactur
ing mart of Nebraska.
We only hope tho first indications
may prove all that the most enthu
siastic could hope for. As the work
protrrosses the readers of TllK News
will have the benefit of the first reports.

Yesterday was a red letter day at
the home of Frank Boyd, it being his

event, but their daughter, Estella,
assisted by neighbors, had the matter
in mind, and they got up a surprise
that will not soon be forgotten by Mr.
and Mrs. Uoyd.
Over forty of their most intimate
friends and neighbors came in on
them unannounced last evening with
well filled baskets and a very enjoya
ble evening for all was had. Vocal
and instrumental music with conver
sation and splendid refreshments
helped to make the hours fly quickly
oy. Tho guest- departed at a late
hour after wishing the host and hos
tess many more enjoyable anniver
saries. A SucceHKful Ma&querade.
The Sokol masque ball Saturday
evening was quite an alTair and the

evening reach the sum of $180.

Commissioner George Young has
spent a great deal of time in making
a fine fish pond which ho had stocked
with carp. The fish were doing nicely
until a few days ago when it was dis
covered that they were all dead.
Fine fish two feet in length may bo
seen all over the pond dead, lying uo
next to the ice. The cause of the
death of the fish is said to be the ice
and snow which shut out all air so
that they smothered. It is the cus
tom to cut air holes in the ice for
them, but this was neglected while

Anvono who has harbored a desire
to leave Nebraska and go to tho "sun
ny" south could very quickly and ef
foctually have that desiro dispelled
by a conversation with Charles Dabb
who returned yesterday from Mem
Mr. Dabb 6tates that in the portions
of ths south which ho visited it will
not compare with Nebraska in any
way. "When you hear people talk
abaut the beautiful sunshine of tho
south," remarked Mr. Dabb, "you
can put them down as base prevarica
tors, or they have never visited that
portion of the south lying along tho
Mississippi river. It rains about half
of tho time, and the other half tho air
seems heavy aud full of moisture. You
do not find the pure, fresh air which
Nebraska is noted for. The leading.
ind in fact the only industry in Mem
phis is cotton. Another feature of
tho south which looked very strange
to mj was that in nearly every line of
business the work was done by colored
men. They are willing to work for
low wages and it virtually shuts a
white man out. About all tho lower
class of colored men want is to earn
enough money to keep them in whisky
or candy. It will to ono or tho
other, sure. The colored people seem
to have a terrible yearning for candy.
have seem them go into a store and
buy two or three pounds and stand on
the corner and eat it."
Mr. Dabb states that the warmest
citv election he ever saw was held in
Memphis the first of the present
month. "Republicans do not go to
the trouble to put up candidates for
municipal offices," said he, "but there
are two tactions in the democratic
party and harmony is not to be seen
in large chunks hovering over the
city. The Harrison club of Chicago,
with a fine band, went down to Mem
phis to assist one faction, and fighting,
utting and shooting predominated
for two or three days prior to the
election. To be eligible to vote in
Memphis ono must have a poll-tax
receipt, so it is iargely owing to
which candidate can buy the largest
number of poll-tax receipts who will
be elected. The vote was very small,
as would naturally be supposed.
"While it would not be fair tojudge
the entire south by the portion I saw,
I am willing to guess at the conditions
in other parts and line up with others
who have seen the 'sunny' south and
stand up for Nebraska."
