How Thoy Boro For Oil.
A derrick in. uhuhIIv built to a
height of 75 feet, strongly and sub
stantially constructed of heavy
timbers, and there are 17 tons of
miscellaneous machinery in ad
dition to that goon to make tip the
plant, including a 35 horse power
boiler and 23 horse power engine.
The modus operandi of drilling
will be of special interest at this
time. Under the derrick is the
bull wheel and windlass, and so
completely reduced to a system is
the drilling xwm thiU wvc,r

skilled bands handle the machin
ery with apparent ease. The work
of digging for oil is begun by
"spudding in" as the technical1
term goes. A steel bit, weighing I
nearly 1000 pounds and seven feet I
long is raised several feet by the j
engine and dropped. This goes on I
rapidly, the driller turning the j
moving drill with his hands. The!
bit is susjiended from a solid steel!
stem thirty feet long and this from
a manila cable reaching through
ihe pulley at the top of the derrick.
After the drilling is Btarted the
walking beam is hooked on and
different kinds of bits are used. A
suction pump lifts the" sand and
water out of the woll and will lift
a ton at once to begin with. It
would be impossible to handle a
metal rod 1000 feet long with a bit
on it, and a cleverly contrived two
piece bit or d-ill is operated at
this depth on the end of a great
manila cable or rope,
A pulley fastened on the top of
the derrick affords means of hand
ling the long stems and pieces of
casing which g into the ground.
Thee sectisns of steel casing are
forced down the well as it is dug
for the purpose of keeping out
sand and water. The first sections
are sent down the well by thofe
driven on top of them, and as in
creased depth is reached and smal
ler drills used, the smaller casings
are put through the larger. The
steel casing in a deep will is the
most extensive part of the plant.
The rapidity with which a well
may lie driven is regulated by the
formation encountered. A com
paratively general estimate has
it thst 1000 feet depth should be
reached inside of two months' dril
ling, barring mishaps to machinery
which sometimes occur.
The 'spudding in" is begun with
a 14 inch drill, which it is expected
t) run until a depth of 500 feet is
reached and the water shut out.
Then the tizo of the casing is re
duced to nine and five-eighths in-1
dies and afterward as depth in-;
creases the casing is reduced to 7-J
and then to 5) inches, which is the!
smallest bit ur-ed, nnd then only;
in cae a depth of 2500 feet on
more is required. Ex. I
