This is the most oil ever pumped
by one company in the Mid-Conti-
nent field. It is more than all other
companies are pumping from one

of Kansas and Oklahoma, and is about
one-seventh of the total production
of the United States.

being the Obsidian Oil Exchange Co.'s

drilled deeper, in the northwest cor-1

quarter of section 3-18-7. The well
was drilled to the Skinner sand at
2622 to 2650 feet, where it was shot

production. McCray and others' No.

of the southeast quarter of section
85-19-7, was good for only 5 barrels.
It was drilled to 2794 feet. The Mag-

It gives a clear idea of the vast scale
on which the Empire is operating.
When one considers that the Empire
is pumping from only one-fourth of
itl proven acreage, he gains a clear
idea of the vast amount of treasure
that yet remains in the Butler county
oil field, to be pumped and marketed
in future months and years.
Empire officials have been endeav-
oring for some months to get the pro-
duction up to the 60,000 barrel mark.
Several weeks ago it was reached for
the first time. Since then, the record h-"*', of sect,on 10-17-7

To Whom This May Concern:
Quay, Oklahoma, May 31, 1918.
Last fall I purchased five share of stock in the Ardmore-Akror
Tire & Rubber Company for tbr reason 1 thought it a Rood invest-
ment. I went into the office of the company and made a thorough
investigation and I am more than pleased with my investment and feel .
sure that it is a good one.
I met the officers of this company and I like their methods of doing
business. They have been fair and square in all transactions with
me and I do not hesitate to recommend them and the Ardmore-
Akron Tire & Rubber Company as a good investment.

The Wild Cat's No. 13 has a freak
log. The sand in this well was found
200 feet lower than in any test of the
Wild Cat; producing gas was found at
1400 and at 1800 feet, but no shallow
producing sand was found in No. 13.
For a time thex company intended
abandoning the test entirely because
it was feared the Kibler sand had been
missed when it was not picked up at
around 2200 feet.
In addition to finding the Kibler
sand at the greatest depth in the

Moderate gain in the production
of petroleum, says a bulletin .issued
by the United States Geological Sur-
vey, is indicated by the movement of
crude oil from field sources credited
in April to the Appalachian. Lima,
Ind., Central and North Texas and
North Louisiana fields, was more than
offset by the loss charged in that
month to the Illinois, Oklahoma, Kan-
sas, Gulf and Rocky Mountain fields,
and the consequence was a net lo-s
of 3.3 per cent, compared with March,
1918, though a net gain of 7.8 per
cent compared witji April, 1917.
Our Regulations Not Irksome
In these troubled times when indus-
tries are all more or less subjected
to abnormal conditions, criticism and
censure are common enough and the
government's trade administrators are
not spared when brick-bat bouquets
are displeased with the ways and
means adopted for regulating the pe-
troleum industry but, as a Tule, the
men of the business are satisfied with
methods followed by the officials of
the oil division of the fuel administra-
Mark L. Requas' assistants, in
working out oil problems, are the re-
cipients of praise for the good work
which they are doing. In California
a discordant note is heard in relation
to the activities of Mr. Requa, but it
is by no means an echo of popular
opinion. The great majority of Cali-
fornia oil men are "for" Mr. Requa.
So are the operators in the other oil
producing states of the unionr—Oil &
