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.

Smothered His i ih 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 Mr. Young was here attending to county business. At the ICoytl.

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 phis, Tenn. 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."
