IN THE OIL FIELDS.
Parkersburg, WJVa., March 0. The
Athoyywoll in tho Waverly Hold is
creating considerable excitement in
that field and is now making oyer 75
barrels a 'day.
Sovoral deep wolls in tho vicinity of
tho Preacher well in tho Calf Creek
field are drilling and among tho nuin;
bcr at least half a dozen good produc
ers are expected to bo struck.
Teamsters nro kopt yory busy in the
Wayeyly field, and there are notenough
teams to handle tho vast amount of
material which is wanted in tho field,
and which in almost every instance
has to be transported from tho rail
road and river. Tho Ogdon well has
been tho cause of great activity in tho
field of late.
A roport Is current hero to-day that'
tho IiUbeek Oil Co.'s well on the south
side of tho Little Kanawha is dry in
tho Gordon sand. The roport cannot
be verified however.
Tho Kylo and Weekly wells hayo
been the attractions, but the most sen
sational announcement relative to
'these two gushers was glyen out dur
ing tho week when it was stated that
they wero falling off in oil and increas
ing their flow of salt water. This was
an innovation to those familiar with
Big Injun territory. It is said to have
been tho rule to get tho big dose of
salt water first and tho flow of oil to
increase as the briny product was re
duced, but the general rulo has beon
reversed with the Indian Creek gush
ers. Asido from that point it can be
said that the two wells wero on even
torms in point of oil production at the
first of the week, each producing about
000 barrels a day. When the week
closed COO and TOO barrels a day was
tho relativo production of tho Weekly
and Kylo wells.
One of tho attractions out on Indian
Creek during the week wus tho Dem
vonian's Kyle No. 2. When this well
was drilled to the top of the sand
Thursday it wab reported to be a bet
ter well than either one of the other
big wells drilled in out t,here. The
well made one big How and then filled
up with salt water and'oll. Since that
time tho well has been stauding full of
fluid and deeper drilling has made no
improvement in it Review.
THE CAIIIO FIELD.
The Oriole Oil Company, whose well
was supposed to bo dry, are rigging up
preparatory to going deeper.
Tho Nicholson well on tho Wilson
farm has settled down to a 12 'barrel
The Harvey well below the McFar

and thcrig is being moved.
Three or four wells ore to be started,
immediately in, tho vicinity of the
Yates strike on the Benson Athey farm.
The Gracey & Co. well on the rail
road right of way in tho Cairo field is
making 34 barrels per day actual pro
duction. The Roeserifc Best No. 7, on tho Nu-
zum farm at Corning is making 75 bbls.

some of the new Japauese vessels. The
