FROM OUR WEATHER MAN
This is the day the groundhog
comes out to observe the weather
and we are glad to say there is no
chance for him to see his shadow.
According to tradition he will re-
main out and we will have an earl*
A number of small blizzards have
strayed into Oklahoma from their
northern stamping ground this win-
ter and the inhabitants of Daven-
port and vicinity would be very
thankful if some arrangements could
be made to keep all other cold
waves up North where they belong.
We could endure the cold very well
but it is a hard proposition, espec-
ially for us old folks, to stand up on
the ice that covers the ground.
The contractors who are engaged
in building the numerous business
houses and residences in Davenport
are seriously inconvenienced by the
sleet, but we trust the groundhog
prediction will prove correct and
the beautiful warm weather, for
which Oklahoma is so noted will
soon be in evidence again.
The Weather Observer.
The famous oil indicator, a pe-
culiar contrivance resembling a sur-
veyors instrument, owned by Ed-
ward Dunham, a millionaire oil man
of southern California, has been
brought to Indian Territory: It is
claimed that this instrument has
successfully located several oil fields
in California which later developed
into bij: producing districts and par-
ties in Indian Territory believe that
the same results can be accomplished
here. The instrument is the inven-
tion of a Frenchman and is the only-
one of its kind known. It cost its
owner thousands of dollars. It has
a needle quite like that of a large
compass. This needle being dipped
into a solution of liquid prepared
for it, becomes violently agitated
when it passes over a pool of oil no
matter how great the depth of the
oil be. It h;is been tested in several
oil fields in the territory where oil
had already been discovered and
the magic needle did not fail to
show all the symptoms claimed for
it. The instrument is now in the
Chickasaw nation and is being used
to locate an oil field near Sulphur.—
Word reached Oklahoma City
Sunday of the finding of oil at
Choctaw City, 16 miles easr, and
"excitement reigns supreme."
The leases made to the Mattison
Gas & Oil company in the neighbor-
hood of Sparks stipulate that drill-
ing must begin by February 4 hence
it is expected that the drill will be
started this week.—Publicist.
