PAGE FOUR THE VICHITA EAGLE, SUITDAY - IlORiniTG, JANUARY 31, 1915 CLUMBER'S : : j GAS WELLS ' ! HOLD OUT i4 'Accident " In North End Yard I3 , Turning Out Other Than I ' Laughing Matter For " ' Wichita. 'LUCKY FINDER THINKS GAS ?. FROM OIL POOL t Using Flow From Own Wells to Cook Asserts It Makes Hot- . ter Fire Than Gas ? ' From Main. columns of the Eagle told of jhe efforts of Plumber T. P. Hayes . to bring in shallow gas ivellsiri the yard at his home, 1549 Jforth St. .Francis aventue. It was predicted by citizens that the wells would play out iand that they were supplied by a seepage from the city gras mains, but time has told that'there is something more to Mr. Hayes gas wells than an accident. There are twenty-two wells at Mr. Hayes place, twenty of which have- been plugged and two connected wltli gas pipes leading to the kitchen range and a heater in the Jiving room of the' Hayes home. Mr. Hayes says that he gets enough gas from one of the wells to do the cook-Jng and gets a faXr flow from the other Well to heat the house. The heater in the living roo.oi is also connected with the city gas mains in case of emergency. Eesides having his own gas for cooking and to furnish part of the heat he has one light supplied by his own gas. Mr. Hayes believes his experimentations with these weuls has developed that he is on the trair of a gas supply and not only does he believe that he has connections with natural gas, but that this gas is known as "wet" gas, coming from a pool of oil. He bases this belief on a peculiar oily odor, coming from his wells and particularly noticeable when the gas is- allowed to escape unlflgthed. Comparing the effect of this gas on the nostrils with that of the tgas coming from the city gas mains (under similar conditions, the oily effect of the former gas is clearly detected. The gas from Mr. Hayes' wella has nothing back of it but gravity pressure, it flows noiselessly, and there is no air mixer on the quarter inch pipes leading to the range-- and stove. Although there is no air in this gas. it ha still tolerably blue. The longer this as is burned the stronger it flows. Mr. Hayes says his gas produces five 'times as much heat as the city gas. er days it is1 oily and sooty, smoking the celling of the rooms. "Many persons think we have no gas in our house but the city gas," says !Mr. Hayes. "However, I know that we have our own gas. I also believe that there is a subterranean pool of oil jnear by. , I have the gas all right and '. watch me order the gas company to take the meter out of my house. I am a poor man but I am going to continue in a quiet way to develop this hidden wealth I have discovered." LOCOMOTIVE ENGINEER HAS REMARKABLE EXPERIENCE I have been thinking that word from me would benefit those who may be suffering as I was before I began taking your Swamp-Root, the greatest kidtney, liver and bladder remedy. I am a locomotive engineer, empoiyed on the Tyrone & Clearfield Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Three years ago I was afflicted with kidney and bladder trouble so bad that I was compelled to lay off duty from my engine and was in the care of two doctors. . However ..their -medielne did not 'benefit, me. ' On day, , 1 noticed yoar advertisement, to send name and address for a, sample bottle of Swamp-Root. "At this time my trouble had reached a serious stage. . I ..sent for the sample bottle and in three days received a small bottle of Swamp-Root, which I took according to ' directions, and by the time I had taken the contents, I could pass water more freely. I was so pleased with my experiment that I sent my wife to the drug store of W. H. Milick. Phillipsburg, Pa., and secured a one-dollar bottle. I continued taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root until I was entirely cured. Now whenever I feel any pain or soreness after be'ing exposed to bad weather or hard work, I . take a dose or .two of Swamp-Root. I cannot recommend this remedy too highly, especially to brother engineers who are more or less troubled with their kidneys (more than any other class of men). Tours truly, T. J.

"I went to Florida once and took an overcoat along," he said. "I decided that the overcoat was useless, but as it was light I figured it might come in handy, and it did. The temperature went down to about 40, and although I wore that oveTcoat, I shivered all the time. That was at Jacksonville. I decided that one can get cold in Florida even though he wears an overcoat." o Railroad " Not Built For Trail Mo. Pac. Officials Warn Citizens to Quit Using Tracks As Side walk and Pony-Path.

They say that men who work at the stock yards ride horses up and down the railroad tracks, although they have been requested to stop the practice. ' The authorities of this railroad say that some men are so anxious to be killed on the railroad track that once in a while a man will He down on the track and refuse to get up when . a train Is approaching. An Illustration of a case of this nature occurred in Wichita Friday night, according to Missouri Pacific officials. As Missouri Pacific .Kansas City passenger train No. 404, in charge of Conductor Frank Kelly, Engineer Johnnie Wickham, and Fireman Tom Campbell was approaching Central avenue about 10:40 o'clock, Engineer Wickham from the reflection of the electric headlight, noted a dark object in the track. He called the attention of the fireman and they decided it was a man: Engineer Wickham pulled down slowly within a few feet of the man, but the movement of the engine did not appear to dampen the man's ardor for a violent death, , He gritted his teeth, and braced himself rigidly between the rails, with his neck fitting nicely over the rail. Wickham and Campbell got down out of the cab and walking up to the man asked him to kindly get up and not obstruct the track. This he refused to do so that it was necessary to pick him up bodily and toss him off the track- Wickham and Campbell say that the man was under the influence of liquor sufficiently to make him feel good and desperate. Missouri Pacific officials said they regretted . that it was . impossible to consistently cut this man's head off. Although the means did not justify the end, they prophecy had they com plied witn his wishes that within 4S hours afterwards, some prominent Wichita lawyer would have served notice of suit for a large sum of money to In a way appease the grif of the widow (also that of the attorney) for gross negligence In striking and killing this good citizen who was quietly going to his Home and family, but who in crossing the Missouri Pacific tracks at Central avenue, was run down by passenger train which was traveling at a fast and reckless rate of speed. o Origin of Japan? Trlcka. Feats with an umbrella of the Japanese kind are very common. The Juggler throws up a ball, catches it. on the top of an open umbrella, and by twisting the handle rapidly, causes the ball to run round the edge of the umbrella. A similar feat Is performed with curtain rings and with coins; the smaller and lighter coin the more difficult the feat. All these feats were originated by a street performer in Japan. One day. while passing under the walls of a castle, a small audience collected on the top of the wall and playfully dropped some tangerines on to the comedian of the company cf struggling Jugglers. No such company is complete without a comedian.) The next day the comedian was treated , In the same manner, and so. he put op MAIL ORDER DEPARTMENT "We guarantee satisfaction, so if you can't' be with us, write us.

Tha shower of tangerines broke through the umbrella. Then the leading Juggler of the company saw his opportunity.

One of the tangerines rolled Tound the umbrella once before dropping on the ground. The Juggler picked up tht tangerine and caught it once more on his revolving umbrella, and thus the feat was invented. The hardest feat of all with the umbrella is done with a Japanese coin wMch Is lighter than an American cent. Strand.
