grafters stock promoters and spec ulators gusherhunters and self esteemed experts camping around promiscuously does not constitute an oil field The mutterings of disappointed investors in the stock issued by these parasites upon an industry and the wails of weak knees whose contributions to wild cat ventures turned into dusters ought not to influence the judgment of conservative people whose money is at work with the drill The day ofsensational reports which the speculative element has sneaked in to the public prints have passed and along with then have passed out of the way a lot of
