Wyoming oil fields
Will Be Developed On An Enormous
The visit of P. M. Shannon of Pitts
burg to D sever bad to do with much
mo'e than routine matters In the
conduct of the Pennsylvania Oil com-
oaov. of which ha is president. ln
purple of h'.B trip west, ease the Den
ver Times, wa to complete eome of
tha details in correction with one of
the biggest commerolal aud financial
moteaiettU that has taken place in the
west for a lvue while Tha proposition
is gigantio: its place contemplate the
buildinar of refineries, pipe lines con
necting the oil region of Wyoming with
the refineries at a point on railway
llces; tha building of cities and develo
ment of a ejection now hut sparsely
populated. Under the influence of the
busy bum 01 industry a section win
niuri-b. with lire and activity wnion
was for years considered practically
Ycekeiaay the first step was taken
at Cheyenne which opens to the nubile
good news that has bean with held for
months by the promoters. The Supe
rior Oil company was Incorporated
with a capital 8 too It of 810,500,000
under the lawa of Wyoming. The
names appearing as incorpurawirs ar.
Pittsburg and Philadelphia, Pa., and
Blnghamton, N. Y., capitalists, who
represent the British financial house
behind tbe deal. It wa the plan t
make the capital 935,000,000 at the
organization of the company, and it ir
cot j-?oturtd by tbo-e locally l"'er ster
that the capitalization at S10,500,00(
has been induced by conditions of tbi
motey market, and was done in order
to go ahead with the work which en
gioeera have already outlined.
The principal place of business of thi
Superior Oil company will be at Casper,
Wyo., where will be built before th
close of tbe jear the largest rentier
in the west. The production on ilium
ioating as well as lubricating, oils will
be added. Offioes will be maintained
in Denver and dirtributlcg station r
established In the prlnolpal towns and
cities of tbe Rooky mountain states.
The name of a man prominent in Colo
rado railway circles is mentioned In
connection with a managerial position
in the new company.
It is fifty miles from Casper to the
wells on OU creek. Ten wells are
cow flowing, a portion of them being
sealed, however. The first extensive
work will be the construction of a
pipe line, pumping stations to carry
the crude oil to Casper. This work i?
estimated to cost a little more than
$500,000. One million five hundred
thousand dollars more will be used in
drilling more wells, ereotlon of larger
refineries, immense storage tanks and
equipment for transportation of tbe
product to consumers. Before the
close of this year over $3,000,000 will
have been expended for improve
The Superior Oil oompany with
ample capital at his command, will
enter the field for business in opposl
tion to the Standard and Continental
Oil companies. The product of tbe
new oompany will be plaoed on the
market throughout the territory west
of tbe Missouri river, but first it will
be pushed to public attention in the
mounta'n states, particularly In Colo
rado, Wyoming, Mot, tana, Idaho and
Utah, and to Texts, tbe Gulf states
and Mexico. Dr. P. Solathe, manager
for the Pennsylvania Oil company at
Casper, is said to be booked for a posi
tion of authority. He is expected to
arrive in Denver during tbe week to
consult with a party of directors of the
new company, who will start from the
Kast within a few days.
THE REPORTER'S METHODS.
Marked Difference From Those of tbe
Orator, Preacher aid Novelist.
Probably not one reader in a hundred
has paused to notice that a newspaper
article is written on a plan just the re
verse of that of a sermon or oration.
Comparatively few ministers have an
alyzed the subject sufficiently to notice
this fact, and their ignorance of it will
often account for the reluctance of
newspapers to accept matter contribut
ed by them. It is worth the while of
every man and woman to know the
general plan on which newspaper arti
cles are written, for almost everybody
desires at times to announce something
through the press. The mere knowl
edge of the theory will not make a suc
cessful writer in this or any other de
partment, but it is tbe first step.
The skillful preacher or orator usual
ly reserves his most important points
until toward tbe end of his discourse,
closing with a climax; the skillful
newspaper reporter puts his climax in
to his first sentence and ends with the
most nonessential detail. While the
novelist secures his dramatic effect by
keeping the secret of his story hidden
as long as possible, the reporter attains
success by revealing his secret as
quickly as words will let him. Both
are working on principles as clearly
defined as that on which a sonnet is
constructed, but the modern newspa
per article is of so much more recent
late that few critics have analyzed it,
and even many of the best New York
writers work daily upon the foregoing
principle without knowing it. No man
can work many days under a metropol
itan city editor without learning it.

Dishes That Break.
The crying demand of the times is a
dish that will not fall out of a girl's
hands and break. Women who keep
help in their kitchens do not make the
complaint of broken dishes more often
than the woman whose daughters "do
the dishes." As soon as a man gets a
half dollar saved it has to go for a
meat platter or a pitcher which his
daughter dropped, and there probably
isn't a family engaged in housekeeping
that doesn't have to make weekly visits
to a queensware store. In some homes
the daughters are fined for every plate
they break, but the father has to give
them the money to pay back to him in
lines, so that he is always the loser. If
a roan is put in good humor by his din
ner, the crash of china heard from the
kitchen ten minutes later drives his
good nature away. Atchison Globe.
At noon the other day Mrs. Jobson re
ceived a large, fragrant bunch of double
violets, with Mr. Jobson's calling card
attached thereto and his affectionate fe
licitations scrawled on the back of the
"Violets:" sac said to herself wonder
ingly. "And from Mr. Jobson! Let me
recall how many years it has been"
But she couldn't recall.
Another messenger boy rang the bell
about 3 o'clock and handed Mrs. Jobson
a two pound box of chocolate creams
nicely done up. Resting on top of the
candies was Mr. Jobson's calling card,
his affectionate felicitations scrawled on
the back of the card.
Mrs. Jobs.-.n, flustered by the receipt of
the violets, was now flabbergasted.
"There's something wrong! I'm sure
there is," she said to herself excitedly.
"It can't be that he's dr No, that Is
out of the question."
Mr. Jobson got home i.t the usual hour,
lie wore an expression cf benignity as he
entered the vestibule, where Mrs. Jobson,
in saluting him, found out that he hadn't
drunk a drop.
"Why, you dear old extravagant thing,
you!" she said to him. "I never saw such
lovely violets in my life, and as tor those
"Tut, tut, little one," said Mr. Jobson
amiably. "Don't speak of 'em. Just hap
pened to think to send 'em up to you. you
know, nnd they're no more'n you deserve
But Mrs. Jobson scarcely heard what
he said. "Little one!" she was saying to
herself. "Why, it's been years and years
"Have you been speculating in stocks,
my dear?" Mrs. Jobson asked him timid
ly. "Stocks? Who, me? Well, I'd like to
see myself!" said Mr. Jobson good na
tnredly. "No, ma'am; no stocks for me."
Mrs. Jobson looked him over carefully,
but he was all right so far as she could
see. His extraordinary good nature sat
on him as naturally as if that were his
everyday manner. He stepped out into
the hall for a moment, got a package
that he had dropped on the rack in com
ing in and opened it.
"Happened to remember as I was com
ing up that you wanted some books,"
said Mr. Jobson in an offhand way.
"Brought you up a few. Hope you'll
Mrs. Jobson took the books and looked
them over in a dazed kind of way. They
were just the books she had been want
ing for a long while all good, substantial
editions too. She couldn't refrain from
giving him a hug.
"Why, you generous, silly old thing!"
she said. "Just the books that I've been
pining for for ages! Won't you please
tell me what It is all about what I've
done to deserve all these lovely pre"
"Never you mind," said Mr. Jobson,
smiling amiably. "I only wish I were as
rich as some of these pinheads that don't
know what to do with their money if
you wouldn't have thumb rings and auto
mobiles and a couple of thousand silk
skirts and oh, by the way, that reminds
me. Saw a tailor made dress in a win
dow as I was walking down town today
that I want you to have. Sign on it says
that it's a Paris model, and that it's been
marked down from $85 to ?30. Don't
know whether that's true or not, but it's
a dandy, and I want you to get your
things on after dinner and we'll go down
and have a look at it. It's made out of
some kind of black stuff, with a lot of
this here frizzy wizzy, spangly stuff
spattered all over the skirt and waist I
dunno if I can give you any idea of it,
but I'll bet a hat you'll like it. We can
look It over this evening, and tomorrow
you can go down and buy it. It'll just
about fit you, I should say, from the
looks of it."
Mrs. Jobson was stunned.
"Why, you darling old"
"By the way, you might as well tog
out in your best tonight," said Mr. Job
son, interrupting her. "Got a couple of
seats for the theater, and after the show
we'll have a bite at well, any place you
want to go. We'll just make a little
night of it. How's that?"
Mrs. Jobson went up stairs and put on
her things in a trance. She was almost
"I don't know what in the world I'd do
if anything was the matter with the dear,
Mrs. Jobson spent the next few honrs
like a woman in a dream. The play was
excellent, and Mr. Jobson was the soul
of good nature. . He said clever things to
her, and even made surreptitious love to
her between the acts. After the play
they went to the hotel cafe and had
Newburged lobsters, with sparkling liq
nid accompaniment. Then Mr. Jobson
put her into a stylish, rubber tired han
som, and they bowled home.
"My dear," said Mrs. Jobson pleading
ly, "won't you tell me now why you've
been so perfectly love"
A foxy expression crept into Mr. Job
son's face, which she caught as the han
som passed under an arc light.
"Well, I'll tell you, my dear," said Mr.
Jobson. "I was rummaging in the trunks
in the storeroom last night, wasn't I?
'Member that navy blue serge suit that
I wore when we aynt to Atlantic City
last summer? Well, in digging through
the pockets of that suit I found two
twenties and a ten that you'd overlooked.
The bills were in an inside pocket of the
vest. I missed that money when we were
down at the beach, but I thought I'd lost
it, and so I didn't say anything about it
to you. Well, seeing as how you'd over
looked all that real, sure enough money,"
concluded Mr. Jobson with a crafty
smile, "I thought that you were entitled
to a good time out of it anyhow, and"
Mrs. Jobson's face during this recital
was a study.
"Well," 6he said calmly, when Mr.
Jobson hesitated in hia enjoyment of the
situation, "I have had a perfectly lovely
time, and I have no complaint to make.
But those two twenties and the ten were
the bills that you gave me to put in the
bank the day before yesterday. I didn't
go to the bank because it was raining so
hard, and I put them in that vest for
safe keeping !" Washington Star.
