--A sand pump, at the depth of 210 feet, has struck oil in the Mahouing valley, in northeastern Ohio.
It has been predicted by a geologist that the Malfoning was the great basin of the oil region, and a 213 feet bore would bring it. The experiment was made, and, strange to say, 210 struck the stratum.
