Mure About the Oil Well.
Yes sir, Brother Polk, Kim wood's
got an oil well, and if you don't be
lieve it come out and see. About six
weeks ago, Lee llorton put down a
well on Kngelking's farm, and a few
days afterward oil waa discovered in
tho well. The well, which is thirty
feet deep, contains about two feet of
oil and water, which is reported to
run in as fast as taken out.
A week ago Sunday, E. M. Jacobs
and IJ. F. Krull went out to tho well
and procured a bottle of the lluid
which they brought to town. When
poured on a stick or on the ground
and a lighted match applied, it im

barrel of tho oil and brought it to

as we havo tho oil, in all probability

Some people imagine because a pub
lisher is issuing a certain publication,
that there is no good reason wtiy ad
vertisements cannot bo run for a song,
remarks an exchange. They imagine
that the publisher has ail his general
expenses to meet anyhow, and that an
advertisementdoesn't amount to much
by way of expanse. As well might a
man step into a bank and say to the
cashier: "You have thousands on
deposit lying idle. Your expenses
will ba no more or no less. Why not
loan me $10,000 or 0,000 for sixty or
ninety days without interest? I can
not afford to pay interest, but I will
give you abundant security and you
will not be out anything.', Should a
man do such a thing, the cashier would
have every reason to dou t the man's
sanity. Supposing a man should step
into a 6toro and say to tho proprietor,
you must sell me your goods at less
than cost or I will deal with nd throw
my influence to your competitor across
the street This man might well be
suspected of a weakness in his upper
story, as well as having his moral
education sadly neglected.

Tho old mariago de convenanco, which
caused so ninth sorrow and consequent
evil in former days, when a girl was
taken out of a convent to bo shown tho
man to whom she was about to bo mar
ried, is now a thing of the past. It must
bo acknowledged, however, that mar
riages are still made up, often too has
tily and superficially, by nicely balanced
family arrangements and by the inter
vention of friends. Nevertheless, attrac
tion and revulsion are now taken into
consideration, and a girl is no longer
forced to marry a man whom she posi
tively dislikes. I could quote instances
in tho very highest (historical) aristoc
racy where, at the last moment, after
the trousseau had been sent in (marked,
according to custom, with tho united
initial letters of tho two names elabo
rately embroidered) and all the social
preparations made, the marriage was
broken off because the brido had de
clared that sho could not "get accus
tomed" to tho bridegroom nor endure
the idea of seeing his face in her home
during her natural life. In one of these
instances tho family lamentations over
the initials of the trousseau were really
amusing. Fortunately a substitute was
soon found whose name, like that of tho
rejected suitor, began with an X, and
tho complications wcro thus happily
The great object of the French girl's
life is marriage. From the time of her
birth her parents have prepared for this
event, and in many cases they havo con
siderably straitened their income and
curtailed their enjoyments to make up
her dot. Every girl in every class is ex
pected to have something. Those who
havo nothing are exceptions and consti
tute a minority of old maids. The girls
who from choice do not marry generally
become nuns, usually much against the
wishes of their parents. The old tales
of young women being forced into con
vents to improve the position of their
brothers are forgotten in these days,
when, while no child can on any pre
tense be deprived of a share in tho fa
ther's inheritance, monastic vows are
not recognized by law. Nuns and spin
sters are exceptions; marriage is the
When a girl is of ago to be introduced
into society, her friends and relatives
immediately look out for a suitable hus
band, whom it is considered highly de
sirable to obtain before she has reached
the age of 21, that she may not be pro
claimed fille majeure when the banns
are published. The principal considera
tions are equality of birth, of position,
of fortune, and in the last particular
the scale is usually expected to weigh
rather more on the side of the young
lady, especially if the young man, in
addition to sufficient present advantages,
can bring forward a number of relatives
not likely to live long. This is called
having hopes (desesxjerances beaucoup
d'esperances). If the young lady with a
substantial dot can also show a satisfac
tory background of invalid uncles and
aunts, then everything is as it should
be, and the young people are brought
together with every prospect of a favor
able conclusion. It happens, however,
too often that they do net know each
other sufficiently, and that they aro per
suaded to believe that the mutual liking
is greater than it really is. Sometime
this sort of undefined attraction ripens
into a deep and devoted love. When
this occurs, there are no more affection
ate wives or more faithful widows than
Moro frequently, especially in the
higher classes, a sort of cool friendliness
springs up, where they see but little of
each other, and freedom ia enjoyed on
both sides. The authority of the hus
band is less felt than in an English
household. There is a sort of under
standing that in her homo the wife is
queen and settles matters as she pleases.
But their best and warmest feelings
are awakened by all that concerns their
children. French parents are perhaps
the most affectionate in the world. The
interests and welfare of their children
are their first consideration, and won
derful sacrifices of their own pleasure
and enjoyment are made in favor of
their sous and daughters by the most
worldly men and women. These are
taken as a matter of course; no one
thinks of doing otherwise or of seeing
any merit in such acts.
The mothers especially are unequal
ed. Nothing will stand in the way of a
Frenchwoman where her children's in
terests are concerned. This love i3 so
engrossing that it swallows up every
other. . They are more mothers than
wives, and if called upon to choose be
tween allowing a husband to go alone
on a foreign mission or leaving their
children they would not hesitate. "Ales

BURLINGTON WORK IN WYOMING.
Improvements In Itiiailliril ami General
Tho Burlington railroad is doing a
great amount of work on tho Wyom
ing divi-ion. The road bed from
Mor.-land to Alliance, on the west, is
heinr widened and the track for the
entire distance is being ballasted.
From Whitman -on tho east to Mot s
land on the west, trains loaded with
ore are being freely run, and new,
heavy steel rails aro being distri
buted. As soon as the weather will
permit this distance will be relaid
with this heavier steel. The gravel
trains are run from the west and
hundreds of men are employed in this
new work. When this work is com
pleted the Burlington route through
to Hillings will be in good condition
and the division prepared for heavier
engines and faster running.

New Vouk, Jan. 21. A perplexing
problem has presented itself to tho
Chinese residents of this city. They
have not been ablo to make up their
minds whether their Now Year's cele
bration sh'ju'd begin today or tomor
row. The Chinese minister at Wash
in ton has i.-sued a proclamation
declaring th it tomorrow shall be
celebrated instead of today, in d In it
tho Chinese residents in thia country
havo for tho j ast forty -eight years
begun celebrating a day too soon.
Why it has taken forty-eight years to
make Ihia interesting discovery la not
et forth, but thero ia no doubt that
tho children of the Celestial empire
havo been laboring under a sad de
lusion. The difference in time between this
country and China was tho causo of
tho mistake. Tho proclamation to
tho Chinese residents of the country
to change tho date of tho colcbration
has been sent to tho Chinese consuls,
who have transmitted it to tho leading
Chinamen of tho cities where they
are stationed. The proclamation has
created a good deal of excitement in
Chinatown. Somo of its residents
have decided to ignore it entirely and
begin celebrating today, and last
night they were hard at work making
their preparations. Others intend to
show their respect for their country's
representative by postponing their
festivities. Tho result will bo that
