our farmers to begin right now from their corn the best matured ears for seed while husking proceeds and store them where they will keep thoroughly dry Seed corn is found to be an in the spring the more so from the fact that the great corn produc ing states have no better quality than we have and we can not look to them as formerly for better seed to any great extent Same In All Towns Jessamine

FLAT WOODS tea r sley 4 Nonsense muS- ole 4 that cross mans lIfearecmi d e v Written for TIIE RECORD There is much interest and excite g merit over the late discovery of a line quality of what is knowniu the vernacular of the oil men as green oil in Kentucky Oil oil is all that can be heard from Dan to Monticello The wont about any thing else Their 55 minds are engrossed with that subject and the fever of making large fortunes in the space of a few days or mouths is rushing through their veins The thought of oil gushing through a or three inch tube from the depths of I the earth at the rate of 350 per day set the brain of the fortune seeker afire And when he clusters a dozen or so of these wells a little farm of 200 or 300 acres the leasing of which costs him 40 or T 0 he sees visions of of 5th Avenue Mansions seats in the Wall Street Stock Exchange and Yacht races There is a constant stream of travel flowing into Wayne county oil men from Pennsylvania and West Virgin ia and Ohio and capitalists from all parts of Kentucky seeking invest ments in oil leases and lands Monti cello is full to overflowing with all the time and the flood grows greater as new wells come in and the excitement increases The mountains of the county are full of prospectors and lease hunters In short the oil fever is on there It might be of some interest to the public generally and especially to those who have an inclination to in vest in oil stocks to know something of the history of this new oil field The first oil well sunk in Wayne coun ty wis put down in 1818 and is known as Old Beatty Well It is in the extreme southwestern corner of the county and has been a producer of black oil for a greater or ever since The oil from this well and others that were drilled SOl n after wards was transported across the mountains by wagon and sold in Nash yule for lubricating oil at 8 per being the finest quality of oil for that purpose It had the double neg ative quality of not igniting from heat and of not congealing from cold The sinking of these wells were followed from Time to time by others some of which were dry and some small pro ducers all of which however were shallow not being more than 300 to 400 feet in depth Up until about a year ago these shallow wells had been drilled in almost every part of the county most of which were dry wells some were gas wells and some were small producers of black oil They were principally located at Slick Ford along Otter Creek along Beaver Creek and some on Big Sinking Creek in time and southeastern portions of the county The industry drifte along sluggishly the oil fever inter milling at irregular intervals unti about halfyear ago when some better paving black oil wells were struck Within the past year however the development of this field has increas ed wonderfully A very line quality of green oil has been found Carpenters Fork of Oiler Creek at Slick Ford and at Parnell more recently and in large quanti ties At Sunnybrook which is in the extreme southwestern corner of the county there are six wells ranging in depth from 750 to 100 feet producing green oil The Kentucky and Oil and Mining Company has two of these wells situated on the Dalton farm and are known asStrubbe Well No 1 and Strubbe Well Sv 2 They are pumping about 500 barrels per day 1 and abput 250 a day from No 2 The Somerset Oil Company own the other four wells which are situated on time Bertram farm and are known as Geary Wells Nos 1 2 3 and 4 Geary No 2 is the big gusher that spouted oil to of the derick when struck and is doing about 400 barrels a day Geary No 4 is a good well and it is believed that iCwill finally be as good as No 2 No 3 is weak producing about 5 bar rels a day These Geary wells have become parafined that is the oil so much parafine that it gums up or cements the oil bearing sand around the opening and shuts out the oil from the tubing from which it is pumped These wells are to be shot with nitroglicerine in days This is done in order to shatter the cemented sand open its pores again The two companies operating at Sun nybrook are preparing to sink eight or ten new wells in the vicinity of the others The oil from these wells is sold to the Standard Oil Company the wells for 75c per barrel and is pumped from there into time tanks a Somerset and from there is shipped to the refineries

home he began his work A stranger came by and criticised tIle curve on the log and said that if the cut were deeper the canoe would ride better He made the cut deeper but while engaged at this end of the log an other man came by and suggested yet more cutting in another direc tion Willing to act upon all the ad vice given to him the Indian cut this way and that until he discovered that he should never make a canoe he had received so much advice that all he had left was a whittled log fit for nothing but firewood All the while he had a canoe in his mind he felt that he knew just what was wanted but he was obliging and wanted to be at peace with his neigh bors so he followed their advice to the destruction of the log Again he started for the woods after another log this time however

Women Who Had Many HaabandB A Spanish journal has unearthed a remarkable case of a has six times been a widow in six years and is on the eve of taking a seventh husband This calls to mind other notable cases of the sort Lady Eliz abeth Percy in the seventeenth was twice a widow and three times a wife before she was out of her sixteenth year The third man who married this muchmarried girl was the duke of Somerset Charles Seymour who stood by the coffin of Charles II after his death and by the throne of George II at his crowning He was a notable figure in six reigns He was well married into the family which has become known in history as the Proud Per cys When his young wife Lady Elizabeth Percy died the duke be came the husband of Lady Charlotte Finch and it is recorded that when his lady once tapped him on the shoulder the duke turned round and said Madam my first wife was a Percy and she would never have taken siiili a liberty John Evelyn in his diary tells a story before which the record of the Spanish lady pales Toward the end of August he writes I returned to Ifaarleon They showed us a cottage where they told us dwelt a woman who had been married to her twenty fifth husband and being now a wid ow was prohibited to marry in the future yet it could not be proved that she had ever made away any of her husbands though the had brought her divers times into trouble An American lady Dr Mary Spen cer not many years ago took unto herself an eleventh husband in a town in North Wales She was 44 at the time so that she had had a new husband every three years THE WEBSTER

wondered if I turned pale if I gasped for breath if I guilty of little involuntary exclaniatidn when the big kindhearted first tenor of the choir of which I was the director told me the secret of his life His secret was one of love love for the cute little blueeyed alto the prettiest and sweetest angel within a radius miles And to me she was more she was my hearts idol my ideal of a woman and my dream of a wife Oh I just tell you when a fellow gets that sort of feeling in him he is mighty mighty tof but he doesnt know it and lie wouidnt care if he did know it It was a bright Sunday morning on which the tenor unfolded to me his secret He loved the alto with all his heart and soul and everything else he said and he was determined to have her Up to that time he had not had the courage to breathe his tale of devotion into her ear but he de lared that he jnust delay the matter no lOnger but on this very Sabbath1 morning pop the question even while grave and somber Mr Pulpitus was delivering his to the wicked to turn from their wickedness As the tenor proceeded with his story I grew more and more dejected His experi was much the same as mine I too though loving the girl with all the possible had delayed approaching her on the subject fearful to trust my fate in her hands The tenors story near drove me wild What could I do He was determined to propose to Miss Grace even while the morning sermon was being there seemed no hope for me to file my suit sooner It was with a heavy heart that I entered church and took my seat in the choir The big tenor sat down near me and squirmed around uneasily in his chair evidently at the great undertaking be fore him Miss Grace came in wreathed in smiles and more beautiful I thought than ever be fore Her appearance was the signal for increased nervousness on the part of the tenor and correspondingly lower spirits on my part He moved over towards her and I felt my heart drop a few extra inches and a big lump crawled up in my throat But he seemed to lose courage and to look intently through the hymnal to conceal his embarrassment Rev Pulpitus had read the Scriptural lesson and the offering was about to be taken when I noticed the tenor make his first active advance He drew his chair closer to hers and they began a whispered conversation In another moment he would be telling her the secret he had unburdened to me What could I do I was desperate but powerlessThen an idea flashed through my brain and eagerly and with unbecom ing haste I clutched at it Mr B said I leaning away over towards where the pair were sitting some what apart from the remainder of the choir Mr B I wish you this solo for the offertory Xo 5 It is by Mr Pulpitus especial request- B started He had never solo before and was not a little to be called on but he assented and asked how many verses he should sing I hadnt the least idea what No 5 was but I replied without hesitation Sing the whole thing right through pleaseHe got up and began the hymn and I went over and took his place by the side of Miss Grace Did I improve my time Well I reckon I did No 5 happened to be a hymn with five verses and a chorus 1 Know Whom I Have Believed was the title and B sang it clear through- In the meantime I told Miss Grace of my affection for her and how utterly worth less life would be without her and finally wound up with a bona fide proposal She was surprised beyond measure but was impressed by my earnestness and eager ness which was due largely to the hurry in which J was in to finish before B corn pleted his solo And she actually accepted me on the spot and acknowledged that she had for some time cared a great dead for meAh but I couldnt help feeling bad for poor B as he returned smiling to his seat upon completing the lengthy solo I complimented him highly though I didnt note he sang and so did everybody else including Miss Grace and he very much pleased with his success While Mr Pulpitus was in the deepest depths of his sermon B hia courage and proposed to Miss Qrace Of course she told him her heart belonged to another and I was almost sorry when I saw the poor crestfallen tenor turn and gaze vacantly around the room But I reasoned that alls fair in love and war and the choir sang at the conclusion of the sermon Come Ye Disconsolate Hell Be Incriminated The uniformed functionary who is in com mand of a regiment of bell boys at a local hotel takes pride in the mouthful of jewelry that is displayed every time he grins He had bad luck with his teeth in earlier life and several ivories have been replaced with gold fillings An acquaintance one of the prominent regular boarders at the ho tel noticing the animated show case the other day observed- I am afraid captain that after you are dead and buried you wont remain long in your grave Some one will dig you up for that gold in your mouth Youll be worth more dead than you are alive Bastus laughed so heartily at this that the jewelry displayed dazzled the eyes of the guest Oh no sah be said de wont dig me up ah no sah cawse Ise gwine teh be incriminated I am Ahll jes fool all bldhuntanB Deys dun got mah odah down at de creamery long ago

killers are moist heat such as is used in steam disinfectors and certain substances found by be germicides says the Scotsman Steam at 212 degrees Fahrenheit will kill germs of high resistance in five minutes Dry hot air at 284 de grees on the other hand took four Hours to effect the same end It may be said that if articles of infected clothing are exposed to steam at 270 degrees for 15 minutes all germs are destroyed These means of course apply to public disinfectors which municipalities possess for the disin fection of clothing bedding and the likeThe chemical disinfectants which nre the most powerful are bichloride of mercury a poison which in the proportion of one part to 1000 of water kills all germs Half an ounce to three gallons of water with a lit tie aniline blue added to color the solution and prevent mistakes and one ounce of hydrochloric acid to as sist the action of the mercury males the best disinfectant known Only the public cannot be trusted to use a solution which is poisonous Carbol ic acid is not a powerful Used in the proportion of five to 100 of water it will not kill all germs and water will not tnke up more of the acid Jznl is not pohon ous and is a good disinfectant It is used in the proportion of one to 200 of water Chloride of zinc a corro sire poison is a disinfectant pften used for disinfecting typhoid excre tions HIGHLY IMPOLITE Etiquette Sayn n Man Should Not WnlU with Wife at lantlc City Husbands who are versed in the canons of Atlantic City etiquette are careful not to pay too much atten tion to their wives at this charmingly unconventional resort by the sea says the Cincinnati Enquirer If theres a crowd of women the porch and your wife is among them steer clear of your better half and lean over some other womans chair and chat with her The chances ore anyhow that some other mar ried man has already monopolized your wife If a crowd is going out to a cafe pr pir or what not dontfor pitys sake walk with your wife If you do the other personsin the party will nudge each other say something uncompli mentary shrug their shoulders raise their eyebrows and pity you for your lack of manners The logic nuderying this is thus ex plained by a man Its downright selfish in a fellow pont you know he said for him to monopolize his vfes attention down here She and he may see each other whenever they wish but in the social swim the opportunity for other per sons to see her is limited Those op portunities should not be lost They keep the man and woman from stag them in touch with other persons ideas But first of all reasons its selfish for a man to stick to his wife in public and Im glad to see that persons are sensible down here and man and wife are seldom seen together A Contradicted Adage The adage Happy is the bride

frightened that for some minutes it was physically impossible for me to do what I knew 1 ought to do But at last I got up crossed over and sat down in the chair which appeared to be occupied But it
