THE GUFFI2Y COMPANY'S OPERA-
TIONS. Houston Post.
A Post reporter encountered a very
Interesting party of prominent oil men
and oil land owners at the Hutchlns
house last night among them Mr. J.
C. McDowell of Pennsylvania vice-
president and general manager of the
Ouffey Petroleum company; Mr. John
Landon of Marietta O. local state
agent of the CJuffcy company; Colonel
Taylor of New York and Mr. George
Wallace Charles Bionston and Kev.
W. E. Cave of Kentucky the last
three being Interested In the Wisdom
estate on which the famous Damon
Wound in Brazos county is located.
Mr. McDowell talked Interestingly
of what his company is doing itt the
: mound where they have six or s?vcn
wells in prospect two of them already
iown several hundred feet. The well
on lot 50 which is at an elevation of
"25 feet Is down about 300 feet. The
other well already in progress is
known as the Herndon well on the
Mulcahey farm and is down 220 feet
The rigs are up and casing on hand for
nther wella on lot 14. which is the
highest point on the'mound and lot
74 at both of which locations wells
are expected to be started this week.
Mr. McDo.yil is very sanguine of ul-
timate success in this territory. They
isiva struck p.'ls In thn well on lot 50
and a sand from sandstone exactly sim
liar to sand known as "pay sand"
found In the oil wells in Southwest-
ern Pennsylvania and West Virginia
from which a high grade of oil Is
gotten at depths varying from 1800
to 3000 feet in what is known as the
"We have thus far met with no seri-
ous obstacles with our wells at the
wound and do not anticipate any. as
all our rics are well equipped."
"At what depth do you expect to
"That is a question that no man can
.inswrr. These wells are simply expe-
rimental. We believe oil Is there and
ve are going after it. In fact we have
i:rHt confidence in the belief that
trier- is oil all through Southeast Tex-
as." Speaking of the Guffey company's op
erations in Texas gen rally Mr. Mc-
iHmtll said: "We have now eight pro-
lucing c!ls at Beaumont that Rive us
aq avrage yild of Zj.OOO barrels per
day. but we are thus far able to take

The Speculative Fevor Hat Passed.
Views of Mr. Theo. Stegner.
"Oil lands are active" aald Mr.
Theo Stegner this morning "but there
Is not that fever of speculation that
there was some time ago. Matters nave
settled down to a business basis; or
in other words prices have assumed
a normal condition and properties
quoted at their real value. That fever
of speculation that prevailed has pass-
edthe boomers aooners fakirs and
'cheap skates' have gone and business
methods prevail. There Is a healthy
tone to the market and capitalists are
Investing largely. They are coming
from every section of the country es
pecially from New York Pennsylva
nia Ohio and Chicago. Not only are
men interested In the production of oil
investing here but manufacturers and
others want good and safe Investments
they now see that Beaumont is on
a solid business basis that it has a
bright commercial future and are In-
vesting accordingly. I believe that the
era of progress for this section of the
country has Just began. Its possibili-
ties no one can estimate. The devel
opment of our oil wells has Just be
gun. There Is oil in all of this sec
tion no doubt. Oil runs In channels
and like water It seeks its level. Oil
follows water. I believe that the most
productive wells will be found on the
Gulf coast. Conditions look better now
for good Investments In oil lands coun-
try property and real estate general-
The Inquiries are for all classes of
property and those Inquiries are con
stantly increasing. They come from
men with money to Invest men who
mean business and who Invest for the
purpose of Improving their acquired
properties. I received a telegram this
morning from a party of capitalists In
Kansas City relative to a large sale of
lands. They will be here In a day or
two. This Is only one instance there
are many others of a similar nature.
he outlook for this section is very
good . "

IMITATING NEW POTATOES.
How California Gardeners Get Two
Months Ahead of the Market.
San Francisco In California the
Industry of imitating new potatoes is
The manufacturing gardener is an
enterprising genius of foreign extrac
tion generally Portueguese Italian or
Chinaman. By his private process of
making new potatoes he gets at least
two months advance on the market in
many places and the extent of this
business must be somewhat gigantic
for these made new potatoes are to be
seen In all the markets from uenver
to Albuquerque and Salt Lake City
to Cape Nome. The method of their
manufacture Is as follows:
'Late in the season after the other
crops are out of the way the garden-
er plants a crop of late and good keep-
ing potatoes. The time has been cho
sen from experience and is opportune
for a yield of small potatoes before
the frosts of winter come down upon
the gardener's truck patch. These po-
tatoes are dug and buried in heaps in
the open field and left until spring
opens and the new potato season ar-
rives. At the proper time the heaps
are opened and the potatoes sorted ac-
cording to size.
In the meantime a large kettle or
vat is set in the field adjacent to the
potato heaps and made ready by fill-
ing with water and adding sufficient
lye to effectually curl the skin of the
potato when dipped into the boiling
solution. A crane and metal basket
are rigged so that the dipping can be
done expeditiously and the way that
new potatoes are turned out is aston-
ishing. The effect of dipping any potato no
matter how old. into this boiling lye
solution is to crack and curl the skin
and at the some time it hardens and
makes the potato much more firm so
that its resemblance to a new potato
is so near that it would be hard to
pick out the imposter from appear-
ance alone from a basket of the gen-
uine article. After the dipping the po-
tatoes are rinsed in another vat ond
spread out to dry in the sun and cure
Into perfect new potatoes and the
work is complete.

The most dangerous impuri-
ties in drinking water are the so-called
Disease Germs. The best authorities
hold that certain diseases known as
Zymotic Diseases are propagated or
transmitted by a peculiar of low organ-
isms which find their way into the sys-
tem through channels of air food and
Water. Of these diseases malarial fever typhoid fever
scarlet fever cholera and diptheria are the notable. It is
believed by many who have studied these subjects that
typhoid fever scarlet fever and diptheria will never at-
tack those who habitually use for all purposes properly
filtered water. As regards the most dangerous impurities
of all desease germs nothing short of an efficient mechan-
ical filter will serve to remove them. They cannot be kill-
ed by water boiling under ordinary conditions for the best
authorities (Lex Sanderson Tyndall and others) place their
death point as high as 230 degrees Fahrenheit. Water
boils at 212 degrees consequently they are left alive and
kicking after all ordinary culinary operations.
Buy one of our filters and you are sure it is the only
remedy to lead to good health long life and a certainty of
success. (SOLE AGENTS)
