Mr. Levi's well came In Sunday week aod was not worth a cent He and his family stood around with mournful faces, and the assemblage bad much the appearance of a funeral. Less than a hundred feet away, on the Nely lot, the Equality company had a magnificent well, good for a two- hundred barrel production every day. This made Levl and his people all the more nonplused, and didn't serve to ligtiten their grief. On Monday' Levl decided to put a shot of nltro glycerine in the: well, just for fun He tore things up below the surface and so shattered matters that alj the oil began to come bis way, and he now has a three-hundred-barrel w^ell. But the Equality well dried up at once, and since then it is the one that Is not worth a ceat. ADDITIONAL LOCALS. The derrick on the Rogers farm J searing- completion;. SOOCaTISe THE STATE BUND. Per Capita Cost as Shown by the Annual Report. The fifty-first annual report or the Indiana institute for the education of the blind, filed with the governor last week, states that the enrollment for the last year was 137.

There is a good deal of talk about the way a Logansport home industry was turned down In the matter of the purchase of a new chemical fire ixtlnguishing apparatus. The home company, for a smaller sum of money, offered to supply the apparatus and guarantee it to do the work as satisfactorily as the one purchased of a Baltimore firm. Here was a chance to encourage a home enterprise at a time and in a way that would have counted for iiuch. If our own city council has no faith in the fire extinguisher being placed on the market by an enterprising home firm, what opinion will other cities have of It? Adrertised Letter List. .

Fort Wayne News: "A young girl was yesterday sent to the reform school for girls from this city who doubtless owes her incarceration there to the absence of a curfew ordinance ia Fort Wayne, and she is to have other company from here on the same account."

FROM FOOT TO KNEE Ohio Woman Suffered Great Agony From a Terrible Sore—Her Stcry of the Case, and Her Cure. " For many years I was afflicted with a milk leg, and a few years ago it broke out in a sore and spread from my foot to my knee. I suffered great agony. It would burn and itch all the time and discharge a great deal. My health was good with the exception of this sore. I tried a great many kinds of salve, bat some would irritate the sore so that I could hardly stand the pain. I could not go near the fire Tvithont suffering: intensely. Some one sent me papers containing testimonials of cures by Hood's Sarsaparilla, and I told my husband I would like to try this medicine. He got me a bottle and I found it helped me. I kept on taking it until my limb was completely healed. I cannot praise Hood's Sarsaparilla enough for the great benefit it has been to me. It cleanses the blood of all impurities and leaves it rich and pure." MRS. AXNA K. EAXEX, Whittlesey, Ohio. Yon can buy Hood's SanapariUi ol all druggists. Be sore to get only Hood's.

Those famous and mysterious disturb- anoes of the lower Connecticut valley, he "Moodus noises," are being heard again. After a silence of 12 years they lave broken forth onoe more in a manner similar to tihat in which they first ell upon the white man's ear 200 years .go. The phenomenon has manifested tself at East Haddam, a pretty village which stands near Mount Torn and not ar from the village of Moodus. The mountain, which hai; been the scene of ihese singular noises as far back as the ndian, traditions run, is a lofty sugar oa:[ shaped eminence near the east bank the Connecticut river. This latest manifestation astonished le East Haddam people on Sunday aft- rnoon, about 4 o'clock, when what was t first thought to be a clap of thunder as heard. Then come a roar like the choes of a distant cataract, increasing and dying away from time to time. The sounds came directly from Mount Tom, and the good people of East Haddam were not long in guessing what they were. After a period of about two hours the noises died away, only to return again on Monday morning between 2 and 4 o'clock. At this time there was the crashing of heavy muffled thunder, mingled with a roaring sound not unlike the wind in a tempest. The grouud was shaken, causing houses to tremble and crockery and glassware to rattle as thoagh in an earthquake. Prolonged underground rumblings seemed to ac-. company the disturbance, and occasionally there would be a short, sharp shock. The groanings of Monnt Tom are matters of history, but the cause of the phenomenon, as the New London Day in the course of an article upon it says, is a matter no one seems able to explain. All the noises emanate from the mountain, -which the red men called Mach-i- Moodus— "the place of noise." The Indians held that the Moodus noises -were the mutterings of anger of the Great Spirit in consequence of the white man having entered the red man's domain. For 20 years, up to 1729, the Moodua villagers heard these noises almost continually, and during that time the sounds seem to have been more remarkable than those that have followed since. A clergyman of that day wrote of them: " Whether there be anything diabolical in these things I know not, but this I know, tbat G-od Almighty is to be seen and trembled at. Oftentimes I have heard them coming down, from the north like slow thunder, until the sound came near, and then there seemed to be a breaking like the noise of a cannon shot which shakes the houses and all there is in them."' After the great earthquake at Lisbon these manifestations went away until one Sunday in 1852. They came again in 1885, when they attracted considerable attention. Scientific men have attempted to call the noises little earthquakes, but no reason is given as to why they occur nowhere else in the Connecticut valley save at Moodus. An explanation which pleases the superstitious is that a carbuncle is forming under Mount Tom for the third time in the history of that hemlock clad eminence and that in its efforts to unearth itself it produces the groanings and rumblings of the Moodns noises. This characteristic is claimed for the carbuncle, and tradition says that during the great manifestation of 1729 an English physician who was skilled in unearthing such enchanted gems dug np on Monnt Tom the precious stone that was the cause of the noise* at that time. The story goes that the bed from which this carbuncle was taken in time produced another gem, which eventuaDj became responsible for the groanings of IBS*, and that some one found and carried thia (tone gfl, whezMfr&i Dr. W.
