Oil Graft Hear Bartlesville
The CofTeyville Journal tells a story
of a remarkable graft in the oil Held
A man by the name of Kildred
owned a t own lot which lie believed
i tole underlaid with oil by the tank
full. Strong in his U-lief lie refused
an offer of several hundred dollars for
the lot. He wanted to drill hifnself
and get. the benelit of all the oil.
After a while he procured a drilling
outfit and proceeded to put down a
hole. He went down for 1500 feet
without Kettintf anything that even
looked like oil. lint Kildred is not
one of those fellows who Is easily dis-
couraged. He determined to have
oil in that well or know the real rea-
son why. Accordingly one day last
week he hitched up and drove over to
Uartlesville where he purchased
alxiut 15 worth of the nicest crude
petroleum ho could buy. lfe loaded

Take as Much Interest in Mechanical
Contrivances and Animals as
When some visitors went to a cer-
tain house the other evening they
were invited almost as soon a3 the
greetings were said into the library
to play wfth the "choo-choo cars."
The host extended the invitation. He
is a dignified professional man in the
daytime says the Baltimore News
but this evening he and his guests
seated themselves on the floor and im-
mediately began to amuse themselves
with the children's toys. The choo-
choo cars ran on a very superior track.
It had some curves upon it but it was
as smooth as the floor upon which it
was placed. The train consisted of
an engine a baggage car and two
coaches. You wound the engine up
somewhere under the wheels and it
went shooting around the tracks as
naturally as anything in the world.
There was a bell on It to ring and
a whistle to blow and the visitors
quarreled with their dignified host aa
to who should ring the bell and who
should pull the whistle. They also
bet on the time it would take the train
to go from one given point to another
given point and when whist was sug-
gested timidly by the hostess they
scoffed at her. "Bridge" they said
"they had always with them but they
bad few chances to play with mechani-
cal toys and these they intended to
take advantage of." They knew and
every one else knows who has had
anything to do with them that me-
chanical toys in the hands of certain
young vandals do not last very long.
The young vandals investigate to see
what makes them go and there's an
end to the mechanism.
It's dreadful to tell the story of the
bachelor who bought a dog which
walked when wound up and a monkey
which ran up and down a stick in the
most lifelike manner and two fight-
ing cocks and a few other 20th cen-
tury toy marvels when he didn't know
a child in the world to give them to;
but the truth must prevail. He car-
ried them home sheepishly in his
overcoat pocket and played with them
when he should have been reading
medicine and was caught so doing by
his uncle and aunt who had come to
call on him because they were afraid
Richard would be lonely during the
The uncle liked the elephant which
could stand on its head best of all the
toys and so he carried it away with
him when he went for Richard told
him he could get another for himself
the next day.
One young woman who had put in
her stocking as a joke a monkey
which acted in the cleverest way im-
aginable introduced this amiable ani-
mal to all of her friends. Three or
four days after Christmas sho received
an invitation to a chaflng-dish party
which ended with "and please bring
the monkey with you; it will add so
much to the fun."
The monkey did add to the fun too
except that one of tne guests stole It
finally which created some bad feel-
ing. There is no doubt about it the me-
chanical toy is a great thing. And
while it may have been invented sole-
ly for children the youngsters are not
the only ones who enjoy it.
