Tnc Mid-West Is one of the largest oil
producing companies operating In the
new Wyoming oil field. Its wells are
located In the Hand creek district and at
this, time are flow ing about 1,500 barrels
per day. The field Is forty miles north
west of Casoar, to which point a pipe
line will be completed early next week.
I'P to thla time the oil has been stored
in reservoirs In the vicinity of the wells,
but upon completion of the pipe lino It
will be pumped to Caspar, a distune?
of forty miles, where It will be treated
at a refinery that will be completed and
In operation by the first of the year. This
refinery will have a capacity that will
be about equal to the preset flow of
the wells.
From the Sand Creek district to Caspar
the country Is lecl most of the way. In
fact it Is so near level that there will
probably be but one pumping station
needed, tire oil being carried the balance
of the distance by gravity pressure.

has ever been given in the history of the

Rochester, Minn., to undergo a serious
operation,. If the delay - was not made
up In the 291-mlle stretch between North
Platte and Omaha the woman would miss
connections with the Northwestern to. St.

No Reduced Rates

reduced rates on the railroads for the

that possibly a rate of one fare and
half might possibly be made for the round
trip to all who had a desire to go visit

holidays . with friends. However, the
Western Passenger association took the
matter up, threshed It all over and d
elded that the regular, every day rates
would stand.

sell ,that part of the .company's property
lying between the Orpheum theater and
Harney street, lk Iri Omaha In conference
With George Barker, who has made an
offer for the -property.
It Is understood , In the local real es
tate -world that an agreement has been
reached as to price; and the only thing
that la now delaying the consummation of
the deal Is failure to come to terms over
the passage leading from Harney street,
through the other building, Into the thea
ter. The theater company does not want
to give up the Jlarney street entrance,
and has obtained perpetual easement on
It by reason of having used It, rent free,
for more than ten years, during the most
of which time It did not own the prop
erty. Mr. Barker and the theater represen
tatlve have been closeted' for part of two
days in an effort to reach an agreement
on the passage that will satisfy both
sides. .
