VOL. XXII I,
Everyone is watching with very much interest for any and all
signs of an awakening of oil field development and there is 1 eason
to believe that the fields will be in full swing as soon as milder
weather of spring arrives.
The Exchange company, (Sinclair are starting a numbei of
rigs at this time in various portions of their holdings and as they
have a very large acreage to drill out they will \ery likely incieaso
their work of development as the values of oil continues to increase.
The Canadian company drilling on the northeast of 2-22-3w,
five miles east and two south of Crarber, struck Quite a stiong flow
of gas last week at around 1200 feet, estimated at 4,000,000 feet-
It is reported that they also had a showing of oil which would in-
dicate that they are on structure ar,d when they reach a depth of
around 1500 feet they are likely to drill in a well that would assure
a pew pool. This company is not giving out any information and
only evidences that is made apparent by the roar of escaping gas
from the well and signs of oil that cannet be covered up is permit-1
ted by which the neighborhood can judge of prospects.
The Billings News has the following to say concerning the de-
velopment in the north Billings field: "The oil well brought in
late Thursday evening by the Southwestern Petroleum company
in southwest corner of section 10 in the north Billings field pro-
duced 1,645 barrels of oil in 24 hours according to scout's guage.
The sand was picked up around 2,629 feet and after drilling a few
feet in the sand it began flowing. The offsets to this well are buth
good producers, according to scouts. The Marland test^_ on the
See farm which was brought in two weeks ago is making 2.(00 bar-
rels in 24 hours time, and the original test by the Marland on the
school quarter is making 700 barrels from the 2659-foot sand."
The modern oil burner has been improved to that extent that
they get 80 to 85 per cent benefit from the fuel consumed, while in
burning coal the home ownef gets only 35 per cent. Oil must
reach 19.7 cents a gallon before equaling the cost of coal at $15.85
per ton. Fuel oil at 10 cents per gallon equals hard coal at $8 per
ton. The moder burner can be regulated with as much precision
as gas and a years supply can be put in a large tank somewhere
adjoining the premises. These oil burners that are producing such
wonderful results are being installed at a most rapid rate in the
homes of city dweliers and if sufficient oil is developed coal must
cheapen to a very great extent or go out of use entirety as a home
An effort is still being made to secure sufficient acreage to ob-
tain a drilling contract to have a well put down adjoining town on
the northeast, on the refinery ground. J. H. Warden, who has a
backing of heavy capitalists behind his efforts, is requiring 400
acres on territory he as a geologist considers promising. We are
lacking nearly a hundred acres and must secure the same by his re-
turn which will probably be next week.
Oklahoma led all the states in the j
Tom Lotta, editor of the Ti-lsa
production of petroleum in August, ac- World, in compiling an official list of
cording to figures obtained by the, republican possibilities, in a short
United States geological survey and
California has been the greatest pro-
ducer among the states, but in August
the production of that state decreased
221,000 barrels while that of Oklahoma
increased 12,000 barrels, advancing
Oklahoma to the head list. Texas,
which had been second for a long while,
sometime ago dropped back to third
place, which it still r tains.
Kansas is still fourth while prelimin-
ary figures shows Louisiana fifth. The
geological survey states that correctel
figures may place Arkansas ahead of
Louisiana, so great has been its ad-
vance in production.
Oklahoma and California alone pro-
duced within a few barrels of half the!
entire output of the United States in
August. The August production of
Oklahoma was 10,217,000 barrels, an |
average of 329,531 barrels a day com-
pared with 10,205,000 in July, and an
average of 329,194 barrels a day.
Oklahoma's production for August,
1920, was 9,371,000 barrels or 302,290
barrels a day. California's productionj
for August, 1921, was 10,026,000 bar-
rels or 322,419 barrels a day. Com-
pared with 10,247,000 barrels in July
or 320,548 barrels a day.—Tulsa World-
biography of ten leading men, has the
following to say concerning Judge Mil-
Ion C. Garber:
"Judge Milton C. Garber, of Enid,
appears to be the favorite son of the
Eighth district where republicanism has
flourished always. He has been men-
tioned for the governorship on many
occasions but has always declined to
enter. He has been an important figure
in Oklahoma republican councils since
before statehood. During the Haskell
hysteria, when republicanism was at
ite lowest ebb, Garber managed to
secure an election and re-election home
district. He made one successful effort
to enter congress, has since been elected
mayor of Enid, his home city, and has
managed to accumulate a large fortune
in oil and real estate interests. He is
said to be one of the most effective
campaigners in the state, standing
among the first half-dozen of the state's
j best in oritorical qualifications. Should
he enter the contest as the favorite of
his wn district he would be received
more than kindly by the remainder of
the state and would undoubtedly force
a pace that might be unendurable for
any of his competitors."

The Oklahoma Gas & Electric com-
pany has made rapid strides in the
direction of extending electric high-
lines over the state. This company
now li s 300 miles of such high-lines in
Oklahoma. The high-line system is
divided into two divisions, the western
and the eastern. The western division
high-line service extends out of the
central power station at Oklahoma
City south to Moore and Norman and
northwest from Oklahoma City to El
Reno, Dover, Waukomis, Hennessey,
Bison, Enid, ^Garber and Covingtin.
An additional 1500 horse power unit
is being installed at Enid, which will
serve as a base of more high-line ex-
tentions out of that city. The Cov-
toigton-Garber lines serve the north-
western Oklahomi oil fields, many oil
properties having adopted electricity
for operating their leases. The eastern
division transportation system starts
at Drumright, and extends to Bristow,
Sapulpa, Kiefer, Mounds, Beggs, Slick,
Bixby, Jenks, Haskell, Boynton and
Muskogee. Power plants for this div-
ision are located at Drumright, Sapulpa
and Muskogee. A line out of Drum-
right serves that portion of the eastern
Oklahoma oil fields. Slink was con-
nected with high-line service only ten
days ago, and construction of a line
into Yahola, Muskogee county, has
just been completed.

To travel in a high-speed car is next

The owners of high-priced cars have' 5'
learned to their sorrow that it is m> st
difficult to get re-adjustment or repair
work done and d«ne safely on the fine (■¥)
mechanism of their cars. A great

and costly as the works of a watch. A
blundering rough mechanic experiment-
ing on fine machinery has ruined many
a car past redemption. To pay hun-
dreds of dollars far a fine car and have
some rough workman destroy it in ex-

many a man to most sincerely regret
that they had bought so costly and

made so complete a study of auto

he is enabled to do positive work with-
out any experimenting. He locates
tfie mysterious ailments of a car and
fixes it. His work is found to be de-
pendable and thorough. Cars are be-
ing brou.'ht out from Enid for him to
remove their a lments. If you have a
fine car that needs re-adjustment you
can safely take it to Cecil and know
that it will not be ruined.

Auto accidents are becoming so fre-
quent and fatal that the news of such
are commonplace. The overturning of
cars and mangling of the occupants are
very common occurences Every
driver should take pride in careful driv-
ing that reduces the possibilities of ac-
cidents to the minimum, instead of
recklesness and high speed. A car
properly handled is safer than a team
of horses as it instantly obeys every
move made by the driver.

It has seemed as if the great steam-
ships had reached their limit of luxury
and convenience. Yet every now and
then some new and wonderful improve-
ment is made. For instance, it used to
take five days to "coa|" the "Aqui-
tania" for each voyage. Now she
burns oil, which is pumped through
pipes into her tanks. If necessary she
could be fueled in three hours for a
voyaged across the ocean. After five
days of coaling she had to be repainted
frequently at an enormous expense.
Now she can be re-fu!ed and still look
fresh and shining. Her 300 firemen
have been reduced to 88 ' lamp trim-
mers." One cannot help wondering
what other marvels will be introduced
into ocean travel in the next ten or
twenty years.—The July American
