The Moore well has been flowing oil in increasing quantities for some time, the oil slowing drilling as the operators went carefully ahead with the well. Today, with the drill four feet into the sand at 3,955 feet, tile flow was estimated at 30 barrels an hour, which would make 720 barrels per day. Tile operators are reported drilling ahead. The sand is said to be the same as that in which the De-s1 Wirick, Ianev and others No. 2 Cradduck,! »outn-in 25-2-6, stopped and was completed as a producer. Further drilling is expected to penetrate soon the Wilcox sand which in the Shaffer and Crosbie wells two weeks ago established the Fitts field as a major oil producing area. Trading Brisk Trading continues at a pace fairly brisk for the prices now required to bring about a orange of holdings from one individual or group to another. Deals are varying in extent from major holdings in the area to small lots which individuals have nicked up in the past in hope that the area would some day become a major field. Talk is heard of million-dollar deals proposed or in tile making. Dee]) Rock Oil corporation of Tulsa has purchased front W. A. Delaney a 35-acre tract in southeast of northeast of 30-2-7, near the J. E. Crosbie gusher. Burke-Greis Oil corporation has taken holdings in 26-2-6 and 36-2-6.

PLEADS NQI GUILT) T A boy Bv PAUL HUGHES chubby round-faced little lay flat on bis stomach on a table in the Ada hospital this morning, and wanted very much to get out. He is J. R. Spears, I old. Hospital employes said he had been screaming hysterically because he wanted to leave the awful place. J. IL was sad and lonely and a little mad, so for a while he refused to talk to anyone. But after a few kinds words, he readily told the story of his strange adventures. He said he had been traveling for some time all over Oklahoma and Texas with no apparent purpose. He just wanted to go some where and really had no place to go, so he has hopped freight trains through both states and been fed by kindly people who took an interest in the loneliness of a young fellow. Upon a little coaxing, J. IL ’said bis mother lived here and that is the reason he uses Ada as a sort of headquarters for his meanderings here and there. He has an uncle in Hugo, Bill Spears, with whom he has visited wandering.
