SANDY, Or., March 14. (Spl.)--Newa
from thla neck o' the woods Is
Interesting these days, and all on ac
count of the progreaa that Is being
made with our oil well here. The new
men who are operating the well are
from the California oil field and natur
ally understand conditions in the
West They aeem to be pushers and
up to snuff In the oil and oil well busi
ness. They have Installed new .ma
chinery and now things are running
smoothly and with great speed. - -
Tuesday, for the past 24 hours, a
depth was drilled in of 60 feet and
the prospects were good at the change
to the night trick for a continued spell
of rapid progress. At that time the
casing wsa down the full 850 feet
which waa the lowest depth reached
In the history of the well. That meana
.ii Hoi.rt., ahaken loose ty
dynamiting the well three weeka ago
haa been nsnea out bdu m

The new soil Is shale and the drill

that In which oil la found In California.
. . l .jiium ara almllar here to
those In California, and aa almllar
prospects are looaea tor. uiu
thoae working about tbe well feel en
couraged, by the indlcatlona that the
drill bringa up from day to day. - .
The drlllera feel aatlslled that they
have th casing down far enough so
that It ahuts off the flow of water, and
that water will not bother them again.
In an oil or gaa well water la the one
thing that deetroye the effort to get
results so that la one of the flrat
thlnga that must be eliminated. Thla.
the drlllera feel certain, they have
been able to accomplish at the 8ton

to go down with good speed. It Is now
