ANOTHER GAS WELL Causes More Rejoicing in an Ohio Town—She Did. It Like a Man—A Young Lady Killed. The Twin City Jobbers Tackle the Railroads About The Long and Short Hauls. More Gas. LIMA, O., April 15.—Tlie first big gas strike near Lima occurred on Tuesday evening, and it caused great excitement. The citizens have been hoping and pray­ ing for the natural illuminator, and now they think that their hopes are about to be realized. The jresent well was drilled in about five miles southeast of the .city, on the St. John's road. The sand was reached in the morning, and a heavy vein of gas struck. Each stroke of the drill increased the flow greatly, and when the sand had been penetrated twenty-six feet drilling had to be stopped on account of the tremendous flowing of gas, which came from the well in immense clouds, and filled the air for a great distance un­ til it resembled a fog. In the evening standpipe connections were made, and the gas turned on through a two inch pipe. The gas m...
