It was considered that drilling would

restricted area ot the field hut there

also admitted that the production Is

125 wells on a half section of land.
There seems however to ho little
prospect ot n material extension o'f
the field. Ono woll to tho toutheast

portance ns oil indications and the
test at Blackburn with salt water at
2000 feet offers little hope there.

Hint could be linilorstnndlngly traced

braced him up to a capability of recu-
perating his memory and today by au-
thority of tho man who was missing
so long his father J. F. DaVls who re-
Hides north ot Sherman gives out a
statement Tho following is substan-
tially the statomont:
"I remember that I sold my team at
Oklahoma which was tho business up-
on which I went from Tuttle I. T. i
met thro men and ono of them askod
mo to tako n drink whloli I did. A
strange sort of stupor camo over me
but I remombor fairly wolf being taken
to a dopot or somo other plaoe and
hearing ono of tho men who gave me
tho drink toll a mnn who aBked about
mo that I always; got drunk whon i
camo to town nnd that ho -was going
to take enro ot me.
"Then thero Is a blank. I have a
recollection of tho nlr blowluj; in my
faco nud ot waking up and .looking out
ot a carriage window. Ii a little-whllo
wo stopped In a rough hilly placo and
myself nnd four or five others woro
hustled Into what I thought was a
cave. I soon found It was a silver mine
and in this wo wero forcod to work. Jl
was granted tho privilege ot sending
the lettors out that my wife got. The
fact that tho counterfeiting ot sflvor
monoy waa curried on In tho cave or
niln.o was not told in my lettors be-
cause they road nil ot them beforo
they took them out and tore up every-
thing thoy .didn't liko.
"Ono night wo woro moved to anoth-
er place something liko the first one:
In July wq worq told that wo woro
gohiK to bo rolcancd. At night throo
of us wore placed In'-a closed vohlclo
and driven to n Uttlo railroad station
'and put on tho trnin.' Just beforo day
wo wero taken off and another closo.l
vehlclo carried ua out into a rough-
looking country. Early tho night fol-
lowing wo woro taken to tho train
again nnd nbount midnight taken' ou
In what appeared to bo a good-sized
town. Wo went out into tho suburbs
and wero ndmitted to a houso.
"Worn out I nt last soon fell asleep
and when I woke up it was broad day-
