Tho nc tlvlty In tho Cleveland oil field contin ues unabated In spite of tho many prophecies n few months ago that op erations here had reached their height. It was considered that drilling would necessarily ccae soon, owing to tho restricted area ot the field, hut there seems to be no end to It, one loratlon following nnothor, and tho outlying ncreago responding equally well. It Is also admitted that the production Is now as great as at any previous time, although there nre now something like 125 wells on a half section of land. There seems, however, to ho little prospect ot n material extension o'f the field. Ono woll to tho toutheast and two to the south Indicate that those aro tho only probable ja streaks. The smnll discoveries of gas nt Ponca City and Hlackwell, consid erably to the northwest of Cleveland, nre not considered to be ot nny im portance ns oil indications, and the test at Blackburn, with salt water at 2,000 feet, offers little hope there.

"Then thero Is a blank. I have a recollection of tho nlr blowluj; in my faco nud ot waking up and .looking out ot a carriage window. Ii a little-whllo wo stopped In a rough, hilly placo and myself nnd four or five others woro hustled Into what I thought was a cave. I soon found It was a silver mine, and in this wo wero forcod to work. Jl was granted tho privilege ot sending the lettors out that my wife got. The fact that tho counterfeiting ot sflvor monoy waa curried on In tho cave or niln.o was not told in my lettors be cause they road nil ot them beforo they took them out, and tore up every thing thoy .didn't liko. "Ono night wo woro moved to anoth er place something liko the first one: In July wq worq told that wo woro gohiK to bo rolcancd. At night throo of us wore placed In'-a closed vohlclo and driven to n Uttlo railroad station 'and put on tho trnin.' Just beforo day wo wero taken off and another closo.l vehlclo carried ua out into a rough looking country. Early tho night fol lowing wo woro taken to tho train again, nnd nbount midnight taken' ou In what appeared to bo a good-sized town. Wo went out into tho suburbs and wero ndmitted to a houso. "Worn out, I nt last soon fell asleep, and when I woke up it was broad day light. I asked whoro I was aud was told it was Hutchinson,. Kaa. No ono could toll us n thing about tho parties who brought us to tho houso. A sort of dull, Indistinct doslro to got homo seonis to mo to bo tho only feeling i had, and I camo homo.
