Its produc tion is going between 40,000 and 50,000 barrels or about $25,000 a day.

Takes Over Property in Ahaiuloned Division Point. ■i ■ KANSAS CITY, April 26.—Con sideration for its its employes has been shown by the Kansas City Southern railroad, which will spend more than *omu,U00 for property in Mena, Ark., now owned by employes of the road.
