Production is Holding Up Remark ably Well — Operators Contem plate Working O’.d Territory Again—Latest information from Beuwood and Other Centers 01 Operation—General Oil News Sp.-Hal to the Keister. Sistersville, W. Va., December 26.— As an evident* that the Sistersville field is still holding up nicely in pro duction. take the runs from that field at the present time. In th ewiuter the runs always full off several thousand barrels on accsvount of the had weather during which the wells have to be shut down on account of the water and gas linos freez ag. Despite all this the runs of tue Sistersville field at pres ent averag about ten thousand bar rels a day. When the Sistersville field was in its prime, about three years ago. the production nevelr went over 20,000 barrels a day, and this was when all the oil went through the Thistle sta tion. Now. there are three or four pools in Tyler county, all of which are classed in the Sistersville field, and yet the oil fro innone of them go through the pipe line at that place. That the old Sistersville field gets the benefit of but one of then ew pools, and that is Benwood. This pool has a good, big production, probably in the neighborhood of 2,500 barrels a day. and. of course helps to swell the total runs. There have been about 1,700 wells drilled in the old Sistersville pool proper, and of the number about 700 have been dry holes, thus leaving 1,000 producing wells, which have an average of about 05 barrels to each wen. There are. perhaps, not 1.000 produc ing wells, as quite a number of the wells which were producers at one time have been worked out and are now abandoned. This would bring the number of good producing wells •down considerably, and would greatly increase the average of the good wells. The indications are that several of the large companies v.-ill have Increased their pr -ilnctlon very materially during the next couple of months, as it is understood some of them will orill rhr-ir old territory over again, and it is expected that quite a num ber of wells will be started in a very short time. All the new pools fn this section are showing iti• remarkably well, and there is . cry r isqn to helievi that hv next spring th. re will have been an increase in the production of this field that will lie a sur prise. Cute of the pools that is coming to the front in great shape is that in the vicinity of Conoway, In the back part of this county, where the Spragg Oil Co. has recently drilled in another gusher. This pool has been very slow in develop inn for th* reason that the Spragg Oil <'o. is not i rich corn rn and cannot afford to drill more than one well at a time. At both of the wells they have drilled in they have gotten a good production and from this time out will probably push their work more rapidly. Their last well on this farm, which came in a big gusher md tloK'-d considerable salt water, ha* fallen off in salt water and gas and is now reported to be making better than Hit• barrels a day. Their first well is still holding up nicely, and they now have a good production. The Fisher Oil Co. is lucky again in the Kenwood. Ohio. pool. Their No. 1 on the l). Howell farm, which was due last ! evening, lias been drilled into the tirst pay i. d is reported to be making 13 bar i rets an hour strong. This well is located -■‘I f.-et nor;he.-.st of the big McFarland yssher. in> 1 opens up some new territory. The Well being drilled on the Mull le nt a i f irm! on lliickhi'l Bottom, on the Ohio side of tile river just below Proctor, by the Ohio Oil Co., has been completed and is a great salt water producer in the Big Injun. A light show of oil was found, but not enough to pay. The well will bo drilled to, the Gordon sand at once. The developments in the Hebron pool an becoming more extensive right along, and quite a nice sized pool has been open ed up. Tin- production of that pool is now about 1.800 barrels a day. The Fisher Oil Co.'s well on the Neff farm. In the Ben wood territory, which < one in terrific gusher the early part of tb- week, is still in statu quo, as nothing • ■an lie done on account of the heavy gas pressure. It is showing a nice lot of oil. and the indications are that it will make a gusher. Special to the Register. St. Mary's. W. Va.. December 26.— There is very little stir in the Broad 1 run field in he matter of development. 1 bp Great Kanawha Oil Company 1 and Prink are drilling their No. 10. and | are down over 200 feet. Their No. 0. ; on the C. C. Sohanwacher land, is do ing well since it has been cleaned out. 1. Pranchot Bros.’ will continue dri .mg their No. 2. on the Ambler * farm. after the holidays. French creek has nothing new re ' ported- Productions remain about the : same. Brown & Wolf have located a well on ! the C. W. Bills farm and will com 1 mence work next week. The Gale No. 2. on the C. IV. Bills farm, is producing a fair quantity of ' oil of good quality. The well on the Robert Reynolds | farm has produced nothing but dissat isfaction. Schaffer <k Co. have located a well on Green run. i A SW-barrel well was reported to have i been drilled in Cow creek, but there are I no particulars. Ir'.g. Green & Puffy are putting up a new rig on the Ilendershot farm. The Rarnest Oi! Company, on the Rogers farm, are due in the Berea sand in their No. 1 . in the Newport field. The wells in this field are keeping np I their production. The Irig well makes thir'v barrels per day. Work on the j western extensio* of this development ! is being pushed as* rapidly as the j weather will permit. S; Li! to the Retrfster. Waverlv, W. Ya., December 2$.—The Florence Oil Company has rinsed »p all their wells in this field in such a man ner that they can all be operated with ota power machine. There are .17 wells in all. 19 on the Kd. Smith and IS on the ’Squire Cooper farms. It re quired 30.000 feet of wire cable to con nect these wells, and the cost was in the neichborhood of $10,000. These are all shallow wells and all lipht pro dneers. Sn >th & Shay have located a deep well in the same field between the old Strosnider well and ihe deep well on the Harness farm. Si><«i.il to the KfSist-r. Parkersburg. W. \ a.. December 2*».— The Mountain State Gas Company has notified the operators in the Waverly and Ogdin fields that they will be un able to furnish gas for fuel. It is re ported that there is a shortage and it requires the whole output for the Parkersburg consumers, consequently all the operators are having coal hauled for fuel. Several wells were drilled for gas recently in that neighborhood, near the Shultz gas well, but without avail until Iasi week, when a well was drilled in on Spice run. a brancn of Cow creek -o-* A MARIETTA MAN Shot I>t Tramp* and Killed at Salamanca.

He refused to say anything about the death of Robert J. Henry and Conrad Eppers. two of the patients, front rabies. Dr. LaBadie. of 1 the institute said that the death of the 1 boys did not prove that the Pasteur sys i tem was a failure. "We do not." he said, “absolutely guarantee that our treatment will pre vent hydrophobia any more than that vaccination is an unquestionable pre ventive against smallpox. About one patient out of two hundred we have treated has died, while fifty per cent of those otherwise have died. We cannot tell whether innoculation has been effective until fifteen (lavs after the patient has been treated. The boys were not brought to the institute until tour days after they bed been bitten, in stead of being sent here immediately. Had they come here at once I believe their recovery would have been as ! sured.’’ AX Ol.n M \x. Edward Parson Wilton Falls to Equal Ilia Great Itecord.

The old man wont to the office of the skating rink, in which the track was stationed, threw himself on a cot and wept bitterly. A number of friends gathered around and sought to console him. but Weston refused to be comforted and reproached himself for his failure. The veteran started out bravely in his effort to prove that he was as sturdy a man as ho was twenty-five years ago, and more than half the day maintained a gait that promised to break his rec ord. Then he was seized with vertigo, and was obliged to leave the track for longer periods than he had planned. He was also obliged, after walking a few laps, to reverse the direction, in order to overcome dizziness. ---o JOSEPH D. WEEKS DEAD. The Well Known JMtt»l>nrtc Editor ami Mptulnr^iit Pmaeett V why .

December 26.—The World to-morrow will publish, the following: Several business firms that had won dered why important letters, contain ing largp sums of money had been de layed in the mails have received the letters, but not the enclosures, stained with the waters of the bay upon which it had tossed two or three days before being picked up. The letters had been opened, the money insidp transmitted by the firms correspondents in Chicago, Cincinnati. San Francisco, Philadel phia and Pittsburg, taken out. after which the thief had dropped the let ters into the hay. Investigation made r.t the postoffice confirmed the story. The robery is evidently one of the largest ami cleverest ever known in the history of the department, and the total loss reaches many thousand dol lars. '1 he postoffice officials admit this much, but decline for official reasons to say anything further. It was learned that the mail bags were stolen at a depot in this city from a western express that reached here Tuesday, that the letters were car ried away, that thieves boarded an out going steamer and are now on their way to Europe or to one of the South ern ports. “All that I am at liberty to tell." said Postmaster Dayton to-day, “is that these letters were found in the bay just off Coney Island, having been dropped by an outgoing steamer. That is all we can tell at present. There h3s been a robbery and the postoffice inspectors have the case in hand.” •u:i-f ONTRAt T TKAVSKKKRKD.

A Native of Morgantown, Deceased Came to This City in Girlhood,and Resided Here Continuously for About Seventy Years—The Fun eral Arrangements Have Not Yet Been Completed. Mrs. Mary E. Todd, widow of the lat° Dr. Archibald S. Todd, died at the resi dence of her son-in-law, Dr. J. C. Hupp, on Fourteenth street, yesterday after noon at one o'clock, of the inlirmities of old age. Deceased was one of the oldest resi dents of this city. She was a native of Morgantown, where she was born in June, 1811, her maiden name being Mary E. Jarrett. and came to this city in girlhood, where she resided contin uously for nearly or quite seventy years. Her husband. Dr. Todd, came to Wheeling from Washington county, New York, in 1S19, to join his brother, Dr. Martin L. Todd, who had been a practicing physician here for a dozen years. After reading medicine, he completed his studies in 182ti, in the Transylvania University, at Lexington, Ky.. in 1S26. and returned to Wheeling, succeeding to the extensive practice of his brother. In 1831 Dr. Todd and Miss Jarrett were married, and the tie thus formed continued for over half a cen tury, Dr. Todd dying in 1883, Mrs. Todd thus surviving her husband thirteen years. Two children out of a family of six or seven, survive their mother, they beiug Caroline Louisa, wife of Dr. J. C. Hupp, and Mrs. Mary E. Tarwill. of Oak I’ark, Ills. The latter has been advised of the sad event, and is expect ed to arrive this evening, when the fun eral arrangements will be made. Mrs. Todd was the oldest member of the First Presbyterian Church, and was noted for her deep interest in relig ious matters. During the war she also distinguished herself for patriotic work, and much good resulted from her efforts. Since the death of her husband she h:is lived a quiet and retired life, but possessed a large number of warm friends, who estimated at their true worth her personal attributes and her kindly and Christian character.
