Broke Down at Oil Well-
As a result of some foreign
substance having been thrown
in the well by an unknown par-
ty, the drillers are unable to
move a peg. This is the most
serious break down that has
ever occurred at the well, and
the probabeleties are that this
substance, whatever it is, will
never be gotten out, though the
same probilities might be rever-
sed and everything be in work-
ing order within the next few
days. The X-Ray hopes so, to
say the least of it.—Rising Star
