Along with tha Meridian company considerable acreage lo owned Jointly In that district but no plans havo been mado lor developing It. When the contract was mode with the Prairie, which Included the sale ol a half Interest In tho Welch well and the acreage, no bargain was made by the Prairie company to do any particular drilling, except as caused by the demands of offsets. Only one well, tho Miller, has keen drilled, this being an offset. Tin oouii any is now planning to | BETTER SERVICE TO THE VETERANS Director Hinet Submits His Report to Congress—Disbursements Less. Olll drill a well west. 011 some leases secured from Hutchinson men hut of courao the Meridian company has no hing lo do with this. More Wells Desired. The sioekho'ders of the Meridian Oil and lias company would like to see some tests made hy the two companies on the Joint acreage immediately surrounding the Wclcli,and Miller wells. There is a general belief that belter wells than either of these would be found there and Hint a good PQpl would be worked out. But the Prairie company has made no announcement yet. of any plan to drill further on this joint acreage. In Other Fields. In other fields tests are drilled all around a new producing wildcat. If tests were made on all sides of the Miller and the Welch it would seem thero was a chance 10 get etlll more production. Of course the price of oil Is awny down nt this time and this is one cause of sloxv development. Hut in the five or eix mouth3 necessary to bring in a well at this depth the oil price may go quite a hit higher. The Prairie company would he aware of this sooner than any other compauy, to be sure, and this may determine what is to ho done In the north field during tho coming months. Many teats were made around the Hussell discovery well, and each one brought in an oiler. It might do tho same thing here and make n real oil field, it it. had a chance. "AS SOON AS THE MONEY COMES IN." Ed V. ISngler of the Reno County 011 and Gas company, drilling the Short test west ol town, being asked today when work would be resumed there said "As soon as the subscribers pay their money in." Most of this has already been paid In, It Is understood, but the few lhat havo not are delaying (patters, as the money must he In the bank before work starts up again. PRAIRIE BUYS MUCH OIL DOWN IN TEXAS. The Prairie Oil and (las company has just contracted with the Boyd Oil company to buy 3,000,000 barrels of crude from the new Wortham field in Texas. It is in the central area. The Prairie Pipe Line company is to build a lino to reach it. No announcement is made as to tho price. It Is evidence that the Prairie is looking forward to the need of more crude oil and it will have some bearing on the oil situation generally for tho future. well good for 1.10 barrels on the Crahnm lease, southwest of Wln- fleld. Tha Hand was found nt B5S to 26f!4 feet. It is opening a new field between the Rainbow bend pool and the city of Wlnfteld. BELIEVE MERMIS WELL IS A GOOD ONE TOO. The oil men believe tho Mermls well of tho Producers nnd rtotiners company, 3-14-lBw, west ItHssell county, and 14 miles from the Russell discovery well, Is ft make a commercial well. It Is eh n line from tho Welch and Mlliri- pool through tho Cheyenne Bottoms and on northwest. The sand was touched nt liOSo feet nnd oil men are nil turning that way. other with ARE ON THE WAY IN GREENWOOD COUNTY. Robert Yottker and the Hutchinson men associated him in drilling n well in Greenwood county havo tho hole down about 300 feet nnd Clarence Youker came in from there last night. Tommy Benl, drilling there, is to come hack to Hutchinson soon and work on.the Thlessen well, when tho work is started up there. Buzz Eddy, now visiting his home in Illinois, is to work In Greenwood county. AT WORK AGAIN AT THE IRWIN WELL. Work has started again today at tho No. 1 Irwin, no. 21-20-i!w, north- went of the Welch well in Rice county. It had been shut down tor some days, but It is to go on from this time. There is some under- reaming to do. The hole Is down somewhere holow 3100 feet. HARLAND COMPANY HAS A GOOD WELL. The Marland Oil company has a DRILLING AWAY AT THE SALLEE WELL. The drillers are pounding away at the Salleo well, se. 3-22-6W, and a little new hole will soon appear on the steel line measurement. The bit is somewhere below 3S15 feet. O'HALLORAN WELL DOWN TO 3340 FEET. Tho O'Halloran we'd is about S340 feet or below, ending an underreamiug job which was hoped to shut off tha "last water" before going into the expected oil sand. STILL RECEIVING ROYALTY CHECKS. Owners of oil royalties in ttie Welch and Miller wells, are still getting their cheks regularly month after month. The oil produced by these wells is being shipped every few days from Mathewsou station on Ihe Frisco in the Sand Hills.

Murder of Woman Remains Mystery Columbus, Ohio, Dec. S.—The Dexley furnace mystery, which for more than two weeks has baffled the forces of county prosecutor John R. King today is as much a mystery as when the body of Mrs. Addie Sheataley, wife of a prominent Lutheran minister, was removed from the furnace of the parsonage Nov. 17, the prosecutor taiJ loday. Possessed with what he considers positive proof that the woman was dead before her body entered tha furnace, prosecutor King is undecided as to what shape the investigation will now take.

During tho fiscal year onrted .Tune 30, disbursements tor nil veterans' activities totaled $415,138.- 39S, a decrease of nearly $23,000,000 from the previous year's total, due principally to fewer men requiring vocational training nnd to administrative economies. Compensation disbursements also decreased. Soldier patients under the caro of the bureau at the close ot the year totalled 22,610 of which 70 per cent were in govornment hospitals. A material Increase in the number has been reported In re cent months as a result of the pas sage of tho world war veteram act of 192-1. which liberalizes hoa pltallzntlon.
