An oil deal of great moment to the oil fraternity in general was . closed a few days ago, and as a ? tt result some of the best oil proper ties in the surrounding country were purchased by capitalists of this city. The price paid for tKe property was $33,000. The property embraces the In graham property at Waverly, which, in the past, has been own ed and operated by the Hochstet ter company. It consists of some fifty wells, all of which have a settled production in the Cow Hun sand. The strike on this prop erty was made about ten years ago, during the heat of the oil boom in Washington county, 0., and since that time it has made ' almost a mint of money for it* owners. The production is hold i ing up well and the property is considered one of the richest and best developed traets in the oil territory for miles around. The deal was made direct from the Hochstetter company to Mc Coy & Company of this city. There are some Ideations left on the leases, and these will be drill ed at once.

The deal between the two well-known parties had been pending for several days but was practically unknown to but few of the local oil men.
