Down in Field.
Wichita, Falls, Texas. Aug". 9. Ex
ploitation has given way to perma
nent development In the Wichita
county oil fields. The business of
producing oil has settled down to an
even development resulting In the em
ployment of many thousands of men
and making stable profits for both
labor and operator.
Owing to the Insufficient amount
of storage tanks and pipe lines tn
this vicinity, production has not been
showing the great output It did for
so long a time. By October 1. It Is
believed that ample pipe line facilities
will be In this county and there will
then be a rapid Increase In produc
tion. However., for the next few
weeks, as the facilities for handling
the oil are gradually increased, the
output will be larger and larger.
Hundreds of new wells will be con
stantly on the sand waiting until the
oil can be run to the market and sold
at market price.
In manv Instances oil Is being
hauled over land by means of wagons.
This oil, however. Is selling for less
than market price, some operators
selling for as little as 50
cents
jparrei.
Wichita, claims to have the largest
number of refineries of any county In
the 6tate, there being 19 plants
operating In Wichita county and a
number of others nearlng completion.
While the supply of crude continues
so plentiful, all Independent refin
eries will continue to make money as
they have been doing.
The Noble people of Tulsa are
building the largest casing head gaso
line plant in the world in Wichita
"Despite the large potential produc
tion, there Is practically no waste of
production. In Wichita county, al
though there are hundreds of wells
on the sand, with casings set, ready
to drill in. ,
Now. after mere than a year oi
neglect, the shallow pools of this
vicinity are likely to be developed
owing to the lull In production in the
new northwest extension of the Burk
burnett pool.
Much land and many leases are ex
pected to change hands during the
coming weeks. Many small operators,
with wells on the sand, are very like
ly to sell their property to the larger
companies, since It Is oract cally Im-
facilities. This well make the pools
pools of production rather than i of
speculation as the larger operators
develop their property Instead of
letting 't stand Idle.

Materia! Is being steadily taken
to the Hueco Basin oil field for
drilling the first well of the Hueco

RevivesHopes
Of Operators
Church Lots In The Ranger
Field 'Prove Fortune
Makers For Lessees.
Eastland, Tex, Aug. 9. The Ranger
Stephens OH company's producer. Just
completed on the Sue tract,
has done a great deal to revive the
old faith of operators In that section.
When the Humble Oil company's test
on this tract, after showing oil. de
veloped into a dry hole after being
shot, operators who held large leases'
, on this tract become disheartened,
t But now they wear an "I told you so""
expression and are pushing develop
ments forward rapidly.
The second test of the Humble com
pany on this tract Is now making 100
barrels of oil after being shot. A
number of other tests rapidly ap
prroachlng completion are the
Thrives, the Hivick. the Incader Oil
company, the Tulsa Oil and Refining
company, the Riley Drilling company,
the Scanlon and McCootrfe and the
Eclipse OH company, which operators
prophesy will out produce the Ranger
Stephens well. '
The Humble Oil company has a
good showing of oil on top of the lime
on the Forgaston tract. Pay sn) Is
likely to be encountered at any mo
ment In this test. On the McCord
tract, this same company has cased
off a big flow of shallow sand and
have started down after better sand.
Indications are that the Shepherd
OH comoe.ny's test on the south acre
!of the Olden schoolhouse lot east of
Eastland, will prove a big producer
when drilled in. At a depth of 4501
feet oil is flowing over the top of the
derrick at Intervals. The well has
been shut down until storage facili
ties could be provided, but will be
completed at an early date.
On the north acre of this lot the
Texas Crude Oil company Is down to
1200 feet. Operators believe that this
well will develop Into something big
if there is anything in the fact that
no church schoolhouse lot has yet
proved barren.
The Humble Oil company has moved
the tools from the No. 3 Sue to its
Xo. 5 Scott, where It is trying for a
shallow production. This tract Use
south of Olden schoolhouh lot.
The Cladwell Oil company is now In

depth of S.250 feet. '
The Ardixone OH company Is drill

LETS HELP GO;
DOES HER WORK
Mrs. Tobolt astonished at
results of Tanlac gains
20 pounds.
"Some wonderful things happen In
this world, and the way Tanlac has
restored my health and built me up Is
one of them." said Mrs. Paul Tobolt,
of 916 California. Ave, Butte, JlonU
in one of the most interesting and re
markable statements yet published in
connection with the Master Medicine.
"My trouble started about two j ears
ago, sne continued, -ana i nave sim
ply been a nervo'us wreck ever since
until now. Last January I went to
the hospital where I was told that my
whole system had become poisoned by
an affected appendix, that an opera
tion was my only hope and it was
doubtful if this would save me. So I
arranged to have my children cared
for. In case I should not see them
again, and submitted to the operation.
Well, the operation was done with so
much skill, and I was so carefully
nursed that I finally got out of the
hospital, and was home with my hus
band and chUdren again. Then I
picked' up wonderfully for a little
more than a month when I began hav
ing terrible pains In my back over my
kidneys. My appetite left me, and
nothing ttsted right. I was consti
pated, had fearful headaches and was
so nervous I could hardly sleep. J
fell off until I weighed less than a
hundred pounds, and was so weak
that It was an effort for me to get
about at all.
"Finally my husband suggested
that I try Tanlac. as it was being so
much talked about, and the results
have astonlsned us both. I couldn't
see much improvement on my first
bottle, but witn ine eecona my appe
tite got better, I commenced to feel
Improved and was surprised when i
got on the scales, to find that I had
gone up to one hundred and eight
pounds. Well, the third bot
tle did wonders for me, releivlng me
of all pain and headache and making
me want to eat up everything. I now
weigh one hundred and eighteen
pounds, making a gain of more than
twenty pounds on three bottles, and
I'm wondering what my fourth bottle
which I have Just started taking, will
do for me. I sleep like a healthy
child, never waking at night at all
and feel like I could eat five or six
meals a day. I dismissed my hired
help, four weeks ago. after 13 months'
steady service, and since then 1 have
done all my own housework, cook
ing and everything. 1 have no
more dull, drowsy bad feelings and
me is a pleasure co me. i can t
S raise Tanlac enough for what It has
one for me."
Tanlac is sold in El Paso by Kelly

gists In practically every city, town
