I believe there is mom religion in a laugh than in a groan. Anybody can but to lar.gh ia tho midst of banish- ment and persecution and indescribable that requires a a n u modern heroine.

The laughter ot such men is the echo of their own damnation. The next laughter that T shall mention as being in the Bible is the laugh of God's that sitteth iu ihe heavens shall Lord will laugh at will laugh at his calamity.'' With such dem- onstration will God greet every kind of great sin and wickedness. But men build up villainies higher and higher. Good men almost pity God because he is so schemed against by men. Sud- denly a pin drops out of the machinery of or a secret is and the foundation begins to and finally the whole thing is demolished. What is matterV I will tell you what the matter is.

Gordon No. 4 is in the Gantz sand. Thayer No. 2 is drilling on top of the stray sand. For the next week or two thig section promises to be very interesting. If it waa in any other country we could tell more about them when they would come but it is almost impossible to make any calcu- lations as it is. Coast on are drilling in stray sand at their well on the Linn farm. They dropped a string of casing in the hole and'ave having serious trouble getting it out.__________ GRAND VALLEY.

Kane is again showing symptoms of commanding the attention of the trade. It is but a question in our mind if this sec- tion will ever bs able to raise its produc- tion above vions issue of THE ERA. She lias shown herself capable of performing some won- derful and how troublesome she will be in the future will need confirmation from a more potential power than advanced theories. As to prospects ahead opinions are at greater variance than ever since the coming in of tbe Fertig well. Those who ab tbe time were not willing to accept THE ERA'S elbow belt as being correct are now giving it some consideration. Wildcat ventures DOW drilling in this district are drawing near the oil producing and with good luck ougbt to be retired from the field this week.

The Fertig Bros.' on is fifteen feet in the Hand and made oue nice flow. It was shut down Saturday to move the boiler ani while this was being done it made several small flows. It was tbe intention of the owners to drill it iu Saturday but they afterwards came to the conclusion drill it in this morning. It will proba- bly make a 75-barreler. L. E. Mallory's on made 150 barrels the first twenty-four hours. Union Oil Co. No. after being made one small flow. In running the tools in the hole to clean it out the caving in of the sand stack them pretty tight and will take them some little time to get them out. It will not be over a 15 or 20-barrel producer.

The Bishop was unconscious when raised in the arms of his attendants and was car- ried to his private chamber in the cathedral. There he was found to be iu a dying con- dition and the last sacraments were ad- ministered to him. To-day being Palm Sunday there was an immense crowd both iu and around the cathedral and the pres- ence .of a few who immedi- ately rescued the assassin from the hands of the infuriated prevented ft riot and saved the priest's life. The prisoner was at once placed iu a carriage and hur- ried to jail. The carriage was followed by an immense crowd of excited people and several attempts were made by them to get possession of the priest and lynch but the gen d'armes succeeded in getting him safely to jail. The motive for the crime was revenge. Bishop is still alive though slight hope of his recovery is en- tertained. The priesfc whoshot the Bishop attempted to commit suicide in prison this evening but was prevented by the guards. It has been ascertained that he was re- cently dismissed from his parish for some infraction of church rules and had fruit- lessly applied to the Bishop for reinstate- ment. Becoming desperate he sought to revenge himself by killing tho prelate. A FAVORITE SENATOR. Why Senator Sikwyer is So Well Liked by Hiu Colleagues. April Saw- of is a great favorite in the Senate.

I do moat decidedly. The silver ques- tion but touches the pockets of our people. A reform in the uo matter bow imperatively is yet not tljo most momentous and preBsiug. Civil service reform is the overshadowing of the day. When we see the demoralization that money has wrought iu our the threatened clear sweeps that a victor- ious party would inaugurate if ii. could aud tlie largo interests that are involved it seems to me that the time ban come for a rational and business-like settlement of this question. That Mr. Cleveland views the subject in the light of reason aud com- mon sense must be apparent to all. His cabinet ad I inclined to look upon the public not as a political uor as a refuge from partisans. Indeed I would not have a moment's if he were nominated for President lo-mor- auont ftlr.
