" THE CHANCE CAME.'"
9an's Father Said He Never Would
Set tho River on Fire.
Several yeais before the discovery of
oil at I'lthole an Irishman named Mc
Carthy and his sou Dan came to this
countiy from the Emerald Isle. Dan
was u young man of twenty, but his
father looked upon him as a mere boy
and seemed to take delight in ridicul
ing lilm before people.
"Yls, Dan Is a good b'y,' he would
say sarcastically, "but, Danny, me b'y,
yez'll nlver set the river on lire."
This was his stock witticism, and It
annoyed Dan very much, but he did
his best and soon surprised the old
gentleman by securing a lucrative job.
"Yls. Danny has a Job all right," he
said. "It's .?LuO a day, but the b'y Ml
nlver set tho river on lire not he."
When oil was found at I'lthole, Dan
hurried to the scene and was soon
earning unusually largo wages as a
teamster. All the petroleum was
drawn In barrels, and teams wcie In
great demand, lie saved his money,
bought an acre of laud and soon hud a
well drilled that was producing 100
barrels of oil per day at $10 per barrel.
Tho elder McCarthy joined him, saw
the well, received a liberal gift of mon
ey and then shook his head ominously.
" 'TIs a good thing, Danny," ho croak
ed, "yo're dohf well; but. mark me
worruds, ye.' 1 1 nlver set the river on
lire, mo b'y."
V few days later a Hood wrecked one
of Dan's small wooden tanks, the oil
ran down Hie river, and there was
great excitement. As Dan and his fa
ther stood on the bank watching the
oil float away Dan drew a match and
"Father," he said coolly, "the next
