station to the next, a distance of 41
miles. In 21 hours, but when th* line
1* thoroughly tested out and gets In
full operation the flow will b* aliout
six miles an hour, and will pump
40,000 barrels, or an equivalent of
120 railway tank cars dally.
Air is forced out of the pipe line
ahead of the oil by pressure and
safety valves. There are IT pumping
stations located an average of 44
miles apart, each a complete small
cily in itself, and each costing an
average of ? 100,000. At these station,
a brick and cement engine room
with two huge oil burning engines is
located. The engines are cooled by
water 6tored in four outside cement
pools, or vats, each 40 by 40 feet,
and eight feet deep, nnd connected
by pipes so that they act virtually
the same to the engines as does a
radiator to an automobile.
Telegraph offices are maintained
with operators on duty continually.
Each station is in charge of a super
intendent, has a repair shop, two stor
age oil tanks, of 55,000 barrels each,
and a row of modern bungalows for
employes to occupy. From 20 to 25
employes are kept at each station. In
pumping oil the storage tanks are
filled first, taking about three days
to fill them, and then run out on the
lino as needed. H. A. Fell is superin
tendent of the Washington, Kan ,
