The " solidity " of, any Iusuranco
Agency is of course entirely dependent
upon the character of the companies
represented, and in this respect Mr. 0.
-seems to be peculiarly fortunate.
The IIomk, always a favorite in the
Saginaw Valley, is of itself a tower of
strength. The Metkopolitajt, Aetic,
Covs Exchange, AnnuTic and Loiut
Iajid, of New Yrk, are all well-known
and reliable companies; The Old
llAETroan, of Hartford, Conn, stands
bmong the staunchest of the prolific
tfuranc organisations of the Nut-
meg 6ta!- an tne Cleveland, of:
Cleveland, Ohio, though a young com-
panv, is sturdy and scund to the core j
and most admirably managed These j
doing business only in fire 2nd mai'.'ue
risks have assctts amounting to the
comfortable sum of $11,000,000.00, '
enough to,mako asurance abundantly
sure that what they assume they aro
able in any contingency to carry.
In regard to tho Life and Accident
Insurance business of the Agency, wo
leave it for readers to gather tho par
ticulars, as they will find them set
forth by advertisement elsewhere ; in
these as in the other departments off
the business, it only represents first ' 1t, liraley & Co. havo opened a new

Feb. UOth, says; u I have been to
Saginaw and Canada No. 1, to-day.
They are having a little difficulty ; tho j

off, and in cleaning out tho reatnings

The oil and largo water vein l:o very ,
close together, and they evidently have
dropped into tho latter, at all events
' there is a great overflow of Mater to
day, and but little oil with it Mr.
Spangler appieheuds no difficulty in
plugging it, and will do bo as fast as
possible. My faith is not diminished
in its yet being a fair well. It is 485
fet from tho surface, CI feet to tho
rock. The upper vein was 6truck at
UG8, and tho second 410 foet, and the
last great show 4 SO feet from the
hurfaco. The last five feet produced
the water that is now troubling them.
I hope they may tubo it off in a day
.or two and I thon will write you again
This water vein is a great 6ourco of
annoyance; if you onco tap it it is dif
ficult to control. The 1 Mackay well
has had a serious time shutting it off,
and has just recently partially sue
ceeded. The Fairbanks well pumps
i tremendous volume ; with but little
oil comparatively, still they have a
paying well as it is. Crescent, No. C,
probably pumps 300 barrels of water
for;8 barrels of oil. The Dunn well
which is 200 feet below the vein or
780 in all, has baffled tho owners en
tirely, and Mr Duna thinks of aban
doning it and sinking another well on
tho eame lot. The location of this
vein of water is now pretty definitely
fixed, and those drilling in tho futuro
can judge with tolerable degree of
certainty when and whore to stop
.short of it

this Valley. An interesting episodo
in th proceedings was tho presenta

enough, this last well is the 200 bar
rels one of the papers. Crescent No.
5 has a splendid 6how, but they are
still. drilling to reach the lower vein.
They have taken some 20ft barrols out
from the upper vein I am told. There
are three or four other good wells,
among them that of the Jackson Co.,
but I have not been to see them.
