Chicago Herald: Men arc advancing the theory that the mild winters which have prevailed for 'the past three years are due to the gas wells down in Indiana, "For three years," said Allen L. Pogue. of Richmond, Ind., yesterday, "our wells have been pouring out 15,000,000 feet of gas a day and the pressure is as great as it ever was. Now for three years it has been a noticeable fact that the winters of Chicago and .vicinity have been unusually mild, the same thing having been noticed in the Ohio field. 1 It is also a, well-known fact that certain combinations of gases will make cold air. It is on. this principle that artifical ice is made. My theory is that there is a great cavern underneath Chicago and a portion of Illinois and Indiana, which has for years been a huge storehouse for gases which have the chemical properties of producing cold. The gas wells of Indiana have tapped this enormous natural retort, and for three years the gas has been escaping. At the rate of 15,000,000 feet a day the total amount of gas released' in the last three years, since the wells were first opened, is 16,425,000,000 feet, which is, I believe, sufficient to make a most radical change in the climate of even a colder place than Chicago." Mr. Pogue will consult Chicago savants before returning to Richmond, and hopes to.be able to make converts to his theory. _ Tliey lost Three Thousand. Dollars Delphi Journal: By shipping their notes and bonds and monies out of the State to avoid taxation the Bowen heirs lost $3,100 in one lump. When William Smith died he owed A. H. Bowen $6,000 borrowed money, for which Bowen held Smith's notes. When an administrator was appointed to settle up the Smith estate he proceeded according to law, paid off all claims filed and paid in §3,000 to distribute among the heirs of William Smith. After everything was closed up, one of the Bowen heirs came in, claimed to he a non-resideut of the State, and asked that a lion be declared on the $3,000 due said heir on notes payable to 'A. H- Bowen aad assigned to said heir, which notes were never filed against the Smith estate and never collected. Gould & Eldridg-e stood for the Smith heirs, and Judge Winfleld and Charley Pollard for the Bowens. After "a day's fight Judge Winfield asked the privilege of withdrawing the suit, which was granted, and the Smith heirs will •et the $8,100. 'A Rich Young Mliiiatrel Manager. W. S.
