The woodwork on the interior of the
now court house is exciting much ad
miration. It is to bo finished in the

furniture. The work is pronounced by
carpenters as being the best over seen
in a public building of this kind.

The excitement over the discovery of
aturnl gas at Herndon has been felt , to
onio extent , in Council BlutTs , and an
xeursion party loft hero Thursday
norning to see the place for themselves ,
.ml if they thought the outlook suf-
iciently promising to invest in some of
, ho town lots to bo disposed of at auction
in that day. The cheap rates for the
ound trip induced a party of about fifty
o go from hero , and the regular east
lound train on the Chicago , Milwaukee
St. Paul took them from the Mil
waukee depot at a few minutes before 10
A-loek. The party arrived at Herndon
it 2-10 : in the afternoon to find a largo
lumber of Des Monica people already
on IJio ground. After looking over the
ground and getting considerable in-
'ormation in regard to the How of gas
: md its utility , all were invited to give
heir attention to the sale of lots by II.
I. Inman , of this city. Sonic business
ots were first disposed of at prices
angiag from $150 to SttSj. The resi
dence lots , situated a little farther out ,
rought from $80 to $17o. In all
sixty-threo lots were sold at an aggrc-
ate price of J8WO. ?
The plan adopted by the company in
belling the lots was to sell only a few in
each block , hoping that the improve
ment of the ones sold would increase
the value of the adjoining ones. Mr.
Inman acted as auctioneer , and was very
successful in selling the lots at good
prices. Although Herndon ivas noth
ing but a railroad fetation until six
weeks ago , it is now experiencing a de
cided boom. Considerable grading has
been done and several lamp posts
erected in tie way of public improve
ments. The olllcials of the Herndon
Land and Gas company are very prod
igal in the use of their gas ( natural ) ,
and keep it flowing at full blast day and
night. The discovery of this cheap
healing and illuminating agent was
purely accidental. Early in November ,
ISSti , Mr. II. C. Booth , a farmer living
near the depot , in boring for water , first
found the gas. Since that timoho.luu
used it for fuel altogether , and says the
gas How is stronger now than a vein
ago. The gas company had a threshing
machine running , the fuel being ol > -
tained from Mr. Rooth's well. The Bier
man , who accompanied the party , &oughl
some information concerning the present
and future of Iloriulon , from Mr , Hasty ,
the president of the company , and was
introduced to Mr. J. L. Beadle , of DCS
Moines , who has the boring of the wells
in charge , as the men who could toll
him all ho wanted to know. "Let's gc
over here and sit down where wo can
talk comfortably , " said this allablogoii'
tlonian , "and I'll fell you all about it
Now then , as you already know , borinp
for gas is by no means new to mo , as ]
am from the gas and oil regions o :
Pennsylvania. When I first heard thai
Mr. Booth had struck gas , I came or
with my own men from DCS Moines t (
see if there was anything in it. O
cour o , I easily obtained permission t <
put down a well , and did to , but don'
for a moment suppose that I 'gav <
away' the result of my investigation. ' .
returned to Dos Moines , and the lonf
and short of it is that there was a com
pany of about a dozen formed and w <
bought 210 acres of land hero , and SOUK
of the members bought more , indl
vidually. This , as you ECO , is nov
platted and in the market. We an

ing who will put n well dowii 1,500 feJt ,
and wo expect to strike there n great
deal stronger. Yes. I believe the silp-
ply to bo inexhaustible , is coming
stronger now than it did a year ago ,
and just look at the nmount that comes
through ono of those little pipes. Wo
have applications from over twenty
manufacturing enterprises to come hero ,
and wo are bound to have a big town.
At first they accused mo of having bar
rels of gas stored away somewhere , but
all doubt IB now removed. When wo
get our big well down they can all see
what it it > . Must you go now ? No , no
trouble at all. Call again. Good even

A "Sovereign" Speech.
Last evening J. R. Sovereign , of
Atlantic , addressed a small audience on
Eisoman's corner where a box did duty
as a rostrum. Ho was introduced by
John Ellis. The speaker prefaced his
speech by saying ho was the candidate
of the labor union party for the oHlco of
lieutenant governor of the state , but ho
did not come asking for any mini's vote.
Ho wanted the people to support that
ticket if they could do it from convic
tion. The audience was made up of
members of all political parties and
gave the closest attention.

Twin Accidents.
A singular double accident occurred
at the transfer yesterday. A switch
engine ran through an open switch in
the yards and went over on its side ,
smashing it up badly. The engineer
and fireman both jumped in time to
save themselves. A moment later an
other engine on another track , not 100
feet away , went oil at a point directly
opposite the other disabled engine. In
Ibis accident no ono was hurt , ' either.
The two great engines lay there , each
on its side , both disabled , and despite
their injuries seemed to bo making
faces at each other and laughing over
the unfortunate coincidence.

people at the circus to-day yvero a young
married couple from Ohio , of whom the
yvifo is of the negro race and the hus
band of the Caucasian. The very pe
culiar feature of the case is that the
husband does not know that his yvifo
has colored blood in her veins. They
are both quite young , and have been
married less than u year.
The girl formerly'livcd in this city ,
whore she yvns employed as a domestic ,
but caniehorooriginally from out on the
Baltimore & Ohio railroad , somewhere
in the neighborhood of Clarksburg.
She is a good-looking brunette , and
shows but little trace of her African
blood , notwithstanding the fact that
her mother was of the darkest , ebony , as
is well known by plenty of people in
this city.
The young man is a son of a yvell-lo-
do farmer in Ohio. He met the girl
here , became attached to her , and
about a year ago they yvcro married.
It is said that ho has never had the
slightest intimation or suspicion of the
fact that his bride has a drop of colored
blood in-her veins , ns she has been very
careful to conceal the fact from him.
They live happily together , his ease
illustrating the old adage that where
ignorance is bliss 'tis a good deal worse
than folly to know some things that
your neighbors knoyv.
