The fifth sand development on
Little Deer creek, Allegheny coun
ty, is still bringing disappointment.

2 on the Marshall farm through the
fifth sand and has a duster. The
location of this well is about 900
feet north and a little east of the
Mullet producer,
In the Canonsburg district,
Washington couniy, the Forest Oil
company has drilled its No. 2 on
the Hall heirs through the sand,
and has a probable duster. A small
show of oil was developed, and the
well will be shot on Monday
in the hope of making some sort of
a producer out of it.
The Jackson ridge territory, on
the Ohio side of the Sistersville
field, has a good deal of new work
starting. The territory has offered
nothing better than 15 or 20 bar
rels as a rule, but they are good
stayers. S. Galey & Co. have
drilled their No. 1 on the Frank
farm, and have a producer good for
20 or 25 barrels a day. The same
company is starting No. 3 Covert
and Brown and has made the loca
tion for No. 4 Brown.
Galey Bros, and the Fisher Oil
company are starting a wildcat on
the Dr. Parry, located one mile
northwest of the Jackson ridge de

tant test for the northwest, and

ducer will start new work to the
The Fisher Oil company is drill

Craig farm. The Ann Oil com
pany has a rig up for a test well on

In the southwest extension of
the Whiskey run pool, in Ritchie
county, the South Penn Oil com
pany's No. 4 Barnes is only good
ior five barrels a day. No. 3 Hay
hurst, in the same extension,
made 50 barrels the last 24 hours,

Samuel Galey has sold his pro
duction on the Calebaugh farm, in
the Deist pool, Monroe county, O,
to F. P. Hue and others, of War
ren, Pa., for $14,000. The prop
erty consists of a lease on the Cale
baugh farms and six good wells
having a net production of 30 bar
rels a day. This has been, and is
yet one of the most famous pro
ducing farms in tne Deist pool. It
has placed 60,000 barrels of oil to
the credit of Mr. Galey since he be
gan operating on it in 1895. The
farm was not noted for gushers like
some others in the Deist pool, but
the wells showed staying qualities.
The price ? $450 a barrel ? is con
sidered low, but the details of the
trade were practically all made and
the consideration agreed upon be
fore the recent advance in the mar
ket. This is the first transaction
in property in the Deist pool for
more than a year.

The Baptist society is having
a substantial iron fence erected
about its church premies. The
porch of this church has been the
habitual loafing place for many
denizens of the city and country
and it is to be hoped this condition
of things will be obviated now.
