. FAIL TO EXCITE
LOCAL OIL FANS
Wild Rumor of 16000 Barrel Well
At Cement Proves to Be English
- Producer Doing 300 Bar-
rels a Day.
There were wild storios ' on tee
street this morning concerning a
well at Cement which according to
the rumors came In last night for
a gusher. The report was that It
was flowing 400 barrels every 35
minutes which would be equivalent
to something over 16000 barrels a
Excitement did not mount to any
great height however as the story
was too far out of proportion to b'a
convincing. The facts in the case
are that somo days ago tee English
Drilling company drilled In a well
on the McKonna farm being the
northeast location of southwest of
the southeast of section 11-.V9.
Till well uccording to first esti-
mates made shortly after the ball-
ing was. finished would make from
100 to 150 barrels.. Tho well how-
ever is doing considerably more
than that. For the last two days
It has been flowing about 250 bar-
rels a day.
Reports from men in the field this
morning by telephone were that the
well was today showing an in-
creased flow. The increase would
bring the daily production up to
perhaps 300 barrels a day with the
possibility that it would go slightly
over that. The informant stated
that It was a guess as to how long
tho well would continue to do 300
or belter a day the opinion being
that it would settle to around 150.
This however would make a good
well It was pointed out better in
fact than was dreamed of when the
Job was completed.
