Several %.<•■ ks ugo they made a
location on the U JI iel farm, the S.
W. of 4-10-3, live miles east of
Marshall. Since ilien they have
repeatedly announced that they
will drill as soon as they get a block
of 3,000 acres. They have about
2,500 leas oi acres at the present
time, but seem to be stuck and un-
able to get more. If the required
acreage could be secured we would
soon know what Gillette intends to
do. In the meantime let's all wait
us patiently as we can.
A location has been made on the
McArdle faris-i four miles north and
three miles'east of Marshall on the
N. W. of 12-20-1 A big structure
is said to exist in this neighbor-
hood and development is looked for
There are about ten derricks
within a radius of five miles of
Covington, and drilling is progress-
ing nicely. One of these wells
struck a fine gas How at 870 feet
last week, and the drill is now
close to the Hoy sand, which is

Messrs. A C. Black and Floyd
E. Felt Behind Project
Should have Backing
of Every Citizen
Hennessey will have Chautauqua
ia 1917. The matter was definite-
ly settled this week when Messrs.
A. C. Black and Floyd L. Felt, two
of Hennessey's most progressive
citizens, agreed to shoulder (he re-
sponsibility as guarantors and
tigped up for the big entertain
ment with the Redpath Horner
Bureau. The chautauqua will be
I eld in August, as last year, ac-
cording to present arrangements,
and promises to be by far the best
ever given in Hennessey. The list
of attractions se< ured bv thebu
reau for the coming season is said
to eclipse anything they have ever
been able to offer in the pist.
The public spirit displayed by
Messrs. Black and Felt is to be join
I mended and they are entitled to
the backing of every citizen who
has the interest of the community

a great oil future. .
The Oil Well
The oil well is sliut down again
for the present, says the Crescent
News, some say to get more casing
to put inside that now in, and some
say trf get an tinder-reamer; some
say ihey are now on a very hard
rock and some that they are still
in the shale—take your choice.
The oil situation in and around
Crescent is becoming acute. It be-
gins to look like a big oil strike is
iu store for this immediate vicinity.
Just so far as Crescent is concern-
ed, however, gas would be most
acceptable not the kind that is
usually found on the surface, but
the "stuff" that can he burned.
That oil will be found in the well
now being put down is almost cei-
tain, and it is being closely watch-
ed by investors who know the oil
game from the cellar to the garret.
It's a coming; the Waukomis oil
well, and it's going to be a hum-
dinger when it does come, We
havo faith that the richest lind in
the new fields will be out east of
Waukomis. Watch us get into the
oil game. Waukomis Hornet.
