T'UIL SAND AT 2,300 FEET IN NICHOLSON
WELt, SIX MILES FROM SHAMROCK, MOST
SMNIITEANT DEVELOPMENT OF PAST WEEK
An excellent showing of high grade crude fron\
a sand at 2,300 feet, picked up this morning, in
the Nicholson No. I, J. O. Whittington et al, sec-
tion 28, block 13, six miles southeast of town, is
by far the most significant of oil developments in
the Wheeler county field during the past week.
The well is flowing approximately 3,000,000 feet
of the wettest gas yet discovered in this section.
Although the oil production is not of any con-
siderable quantity as yet, the indications are en-
couraging in the extreme and the operators are
confident that the well will prove a big producer.
