Some Excitement In Oil Wells.
Competitive drilling plays a great
part nmong wells In n single vicinity
because nil oil leases leak nt the edges,
and whether you got your neighbors
nil or ho gets yours Is largely a unit
ter of speed. Consequently a well In
the middle of a lnrge tract Is usually
let nlono by the owner, or, nt least, he
undertakes further drilling with de
liberation, hut if ho strikes oil near
his boundary he drills his borders with
all haste, knowing thnt his neighbor
will "offset" his wells, on tho other
sldo of the boundary Just ns fast ns
ho can get tho equipment on tho
ground. Itny Morris In tho World's
