A dcnl In oil picperty in the lowrr
part of the state of great magnitude is
in negotiation, says the I'arkersburg
News, anil it is quite likely that the
deal will be concluded within a short
time. The negotiations are between
the South Fenn O.t company, a subsidiary
of the Standard Oil company.
and the Big creek ueveiopraent company
which has extensive oil and gas
holdings in Lincoln and adjacent counties.
It is claimed that the deal which
has been practically closed will result
in the early taking over ot' the property
of the B:g Cieek Development
company by the South Penn at a figure
which is said to be close to $3,000,000.
The field has been under development
by the Big Creek Development company
for about twelve years, having
produced tremendously in the past,
and is saiu to be still very rich. The
remaining total is estimated at from
four to five hundred producing oil
wells, besides a number of producing
gas wells, although the company has
not turned its attention to the development
of the gas territory included in
its holdings.

According to the West Virginia Department
of Agriculture Bulletin, the

also, especially in the Eastern Panhandle,
whtre Berkeley county boasted
a 51.000.000 crop last year, and the
other fruit nops are good . Letters
were sent recently by the National Agricultural
