Excerpt from Oil Wells in the Woods

The river, winding southward like a gigantic ser pent, makes a sudden pause above the city's line, as if awed by the beauties of the place; then, turning westward in its channel, divides the city into a north and south Side, before turning its course southward again.

In the heart of this famous metropolis, the river, for its westward courtesy, is compensated by the waters of Oil Creek, along whose borders is recorded the birth of the Oil Industry.

Why it is that this lovely and historic spot, with all its wild traditions, has escaped the novelist, is difficult to understand.
