Texas, Sept. 33- The Txas company's Xo. 1 Graham well is making a ISO barrel flow after being shot with $0 quarts of nitroglycerin last Tuesday. A column of oil shot high above the derrick after a lull of 157 minutes. The drillers allowed tbe flow to continue for 50 minutes and then gradually pinched it down to a small stream of oil and let it flow into the storage tanks. , . The exact production of this well cannot yet be estimated aa the well has bridged about 185 feet from the bottom of the hole. This bridge can not be drilled out until new cables are secured. However, indications are that when the hole is cleaned out the well will make about SO barrels per dav. The total depth of the hole is 1000 feet, but when an oil sand was not encountered at this depth, the drillers plngged back to the upper sand from which the production Is now coming. It is possible that when the well settles another shot may be neces sary. LONDON AGENTS KEEP, - CLOSE WATCH ON RtUb London. Ene, Sept. 23. (Corre sopndence to tbe Associated Press.)
