Burning Natural Gas.
It has been said many times
that enough natural gas was be
ing allowed to waste in the Beau
mont field to light a good sized
city, but now some of the oil
well contractors are turning the
gas to good account by using it
for fuel under their boilers.
Among them is the contractor
who is putting down the San
Jacinto well. He gets his gas
from the Transmississippi well
and it makes a splended fuel.

GOOD WORDS FOR rl
OUR LITTLE CITYI:
Messrs. Jaenke and Williams
Interviewed .by the
F. R. Jaenke, treasurer of the o
Jennings Oil Company, and al~o s
of the Jennings Haywood Oil "
Company, and Isaac D. L. Will- t
iatms, secretary of the same (o-ii- t;
panies, both of Jennings. are at
the St. Charles Hotel. They
came up to the city Thursday
for the purpose of looking after
some business co:nnec:te w\ith
the work which thlie .ennin s ()11 i
Company is doing toward brig :'
ing in the gusher that has bCeen
so long delayed.
"I think that there is no doubt
that we will have a gusher i: fe
few days. The well is now pr,
ducing in its overflow aoout ten
barrels per day, in spite of the,
fact that there are 1,J00 feet of
2-inch pipe inside the casing
and over a thousand feet of siand. r
We have made arrangements
to take out the 2-inc-h pipe and
put down an inside casing per- ti
forated to go through the sandl.
and then we will have a well the !
size of the inside casing, which n
will be something like three or(,
four inches to the bottom.
"The trouble with our well has
never been stated s,) that it c uli
be understood, and it is very inm- a
portant thing for drillcrs in that n
section to know. If we had knownc,

the well we would ha:tve had uno

then the sand ran into the pipe,'
and tilled it up, comning fr,)m t!ti
space below the pipe and above
the oil. We can case this oT with
a perforated inner casing pip¾),
and then by hanging the inner
pipe through the hole in the low
er cap rock, we will have tlih
gusher in control and the sand
cased off. The estimate is that
the flow will exceed 3;7,I00 bar
