Interesting Developments In a Snlt Against the Vandalia—Bail- road !Sews The damage suit of Samuel Rit- teohouse against the Vandalia is on trial at Indianar-oHs for the second time. The plaintiff was injured in 1895, while employed in the yards at Terre Haute. His arm was so badly crushed that it had to oeamputated. He brought suit against the company, and last May was given a verdict for 110,000, the full amount of bis claim. Afterward, on the motion of Miller & Elam, counsel for the road, the verdict was set aside and a new trial granted. The defendants asked that the verdict be set aside bec&use of certain language used by the plaintiff's attorney, Henry N. Spaan, during his argument. It was claimed the attorney's words were calculated to appeal tn the prejudice of the jury. lit was charged that Mr. Spaan, in one instance, after demanding a verdict Tor 110,000 for his client, declared that "this is the only way to get even with the corporation." There was some confusion In the case yesterday over the real name of the plaintiff.

Oil Struck at 1,050 Feet and Drilling Will be Continued. Another oil well was drilled in at Walton yesterday evening, this time by Che Bunker Hill company. The firs-D well was drilled by the Chicago company. Well No. 2 is about 300 rods west of well No. 1, and Trentcn rock was found to be four to five feet higher than In the old well, which is considered a good indication that the drilling is being pushed In the right direction. Oil was struck at a depth of 1,050 feet, nine feet In Trenton rock. It Is estimated that there is at least 200 barrels of oil in the well, and but very little water. This is decidedly encouraging and drilling will likely be continued It, will be remembered that the old well was abandoned on account of the flow oi water. The oil activity is not very grea' in the Peru field at present. The Shirks are drilling a well near the gravel pit, and some parties are putting one down across the river easi of the Shawman well. A good well is reported at Kellers. The Klondike well ou the Lucas farm, seven miles east ot Peru, will be in the last of this week. A good deal is depend ing on the result of the Lucas well in defining the field. If oil is found in payicig quantities it will extend activities iu this direction, as it is two miles this sido of Kellers. tertain the club Thursday evening, February 3.

Plain. a Com Practical Instructions on monplactj sinbject- There is a difference of opinion w; t whether the darning should be on the right or the wrong side. A writer In the Boston Cooking School Magaziu gives preference to either of the follow ing ways, making the darn wholly on the wrong side or daruing up and down parallel with the ribs on the wrong side and turning Che stocking to the righ side for the second set of stitches. From the same scarce comes the following: In choosing material with which to darn choose that which corresponds as nearly as possible with the threads of which the stocking is made. The stock ing to be darned should be held so that the part to be mended is firmly bir smoothly stretched over the hand. Th< darning ball is inclined to stretch thi stocking and therefore the hole to bt darned. If the edges of the hole are rag ged, draw chein as nearly as possible in to their proper place,* taking a few stitches with needle and thread. Begin to darn as far from the bole as the stocking shows signs of weakness.. This, of course, helps to decide the shape of th< darn. In beginning take a few small running stitches on the needle parallel with the ribs of the stocking. In coming back begin a little above this last stitch anc take up the threads that were passed over in the preceding row. Do not draw the thread up tightly, but allow at the end of each row a small loop to be formed, although, the threads must be drawn up evenly. The length of each row is increased until the middle of the hole is reached, when the rows should diminish iu like manner. This prevents the strain of the darn from coming on any one -set of threads. As the hole is reached care must be taken that the loops at the edge of the hole are taken up. Finishing the first set of stitches, the one at right angles is made in a similar way, taking up oue of the first set oi stitches and passing over the next and in the ncist row passing over those tat en up before, and so OB, keeping the rows of stitches vary close together. Stretching the darn slightly after it is finished will take rip the loops which were left at the ends of the rows. This will allow for the shrinking of the darning cotton. In darning a large hole the shape is more easily kept if the work is begun in the waiter and worked toward each side. Foir the side of the foot of a stocking a hole darned on the bias is very elastic. Stitches that have dropped in the leg of a stocking may be taken up by the crochet hook and the stitch fas tened.
