Aho.it two  wee's ago two  barrels  were received  and  the oil  has given  every satisfaction.    It does not cause  the same    disagreeable smell  as the  oil  hitherto   in    use,    and not only  ghes satisfaction  in  miners1"   lamps,  but is  also    used for other''purposes  about  the mine.
