Frank Ioveland struck an ap
parently inexhaustible supply
of, "hot air" fast Friday after
noon in the well which he is
drilling in Madras They' had
reached a depth of about 330
feet when the drill ran into a
crevice, and' immediately the
warm moist air began blowing
out of the drill-hole, the air
coming out with sufljcient force
to blow away any small wooden
objects placed over the drill
hole. Mr. Loveland, who dis
likes to see anything in the na
ture of wasted energy, impro
vised a hot-air calliope by plac
ing a tin pail over, the drill-hole
and then fitting a French bar)
in the bottom of the bucket,
and this instrument discoursed

the crevice struck in sinking

for. There inay be some con
nection between this peculiarity
of the river and the phenomena
of the blowing wells. One pe
culiarity of the blowing wells is
that at times the air comes out
in a stronr stream and at othei
times it suckis in with eqna.
Another pectUJavity of tli
well at this place is that the air
coming out of the shaft, is warm

and it has a peculiar odor,
which Mr. Loveland thinks i
that of petroleum. Indications
