Ou« Ichuublin HOVERING ABOUT THE EL CERR1TO COAUNGA, Oct. 15.—There is considerable doing about the extreme south end of the field, In and about the El t'errito district as far as the Devil's Den country. Autos leaving the old road about Huron and Armona are seen almost, dally running over the country looking to seen something, they hardly know what. v This field has been rortunate lu regard to fires, none larger than a rig or bunk hou.su or cook bouse having occurred. There have been no serious l:ir'4e tank fires, as other fields have bad. The u-reat grass fires ol' last year and the year before did no othei damage than to destroy feed for tin sheep men.
