OIL AND GAS NEWS
TO THE REPUBLICAN VOTERS
OF LINCOLN COUNTY:
THE JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET
\ ; t
Pi epaiations are under way by (Jn Friday eveniug, May 26,
R. A. Josey Co. to start drilling 1916. at the home of the bride's
three miles south of Stroud in
northeast quarter, Sec. 2-14-6 on
the Marshal Brooks place.
Drilling on the southeast quar
ter Sec. 6-15-7, northeast of
Stroud is shut down at 1450 feet,
awaiting the arrival of casing.
The Roxanna Oil Co. are get-
ting a rig ready to start drilling
near Tryon, in the north end of
Lincoln county, in Sec. 30-17-3.
The gas well that has been
burning for the past thirty days
near Shamrock, owned by the
Gipsy Co., has finally been cap-
ped. The well has been flowing
at the rate of 60 million feet a
day since it came in and when it
caught fire had broken loose for
the second time after being cap-
The method employed in put-
ting it out was the casing and
bell method. A huge bell was
hooked in the middle of a long
string of casing. This was rais-
ed and then lowered until the
bell reached over the hole and
the gas was diverted into the
casing. In this way the flames
were snuffed out and it was pos-
sible to put valves on both ends
of the casing and shut it in.—
AN UNUSUAL FAMILY
in looking over some of the
old files of The Wellston News,
we notice the "following in the
issue of .July 28, 1905, written by
G. Arthur Neeley:
Mr and Mrs W. L. Tryon of
this place certainly take the cake
when it comes to naming a fami-
ly. This is the unusual list: Wes-
ley Merritt Tryon, Abraham Lin-
coln Tryon, Deweey McKinley
Tryon, William McKinley Lawton
Roosevelt Tryon and George
Washington Fairbanks Tryon.
Besides taking the prize for
names they do not believe in race
suicide, as the oldest boy is not
yet 11 years old, while the young
est is past 15 months, and all bid
parents, north-west of town,
the Reverand D. A. McLaury
a Presbyterian minister from
Cushing, pronounced the words
that joined in Holy Wedlock,Miss
Margaret Medlar to Mr. William
Gibson of this city.
The room was very beautifully
decorated with a beautiful arch
of roses. Mrs. Nate Nash played
the wedding march. About fifty
or sixty friends were present.
Immediately after the ceremony
the wedding feast was served to
The bride is the charming and
accomplished daughter of Mrs.
R.D. Edwards. She has practially
grown up here and is well known
and liked by almost everyone.
She is a graduate of Davenpart
High School and has a tendency
towards piano and violin music
and has won some recognition as
a reader and impersonator.
The groom is the eldest son of
Mr. and Mrs. B. H. Gibson and
has lived hei e ever since this has
been a town. He is well known
for his uprightness of character,
is a good base ball player, and is
one of the young men of this
community who has made good
as a farmer.
They intend to leave in a few
days for Colorado, where they
have taken a claim near the
beautiful little city of Trinidad.
The New Era takes great pleas-
ure in joining the many friends
of this happy young couple in
wishing them unbounded happi-
ness and prosperity on their
journey through life together.
May they ever be as happy as
they are this day.

LEAVE FOR KANSAS
Miss Lois, Eldon and Harold
Hall left last Thursday for Rose
Hill, Kansas, where they will
spend the summer. They were
accompanied as far as Kendrick
by Misses Lucille Irvin, Lucille
Duke and Nelle Hall.
We are just wondering if El-
don will meet the same fate as a
couple of other Davenport boys
who went to Kansas.
1 am a candidate for sheriff,
subject to your decision at the
August primary. In asking your
consideration for this nomination,
I am not doing so with the idea
that you are indebted to me, but
in the the belief that I can, by
reason of my long residence in
the county and my four year's
service as sheriff in the past,
give you the kind of service that
will meet with your approval.
I realize that you are coming
to take more and more a business
view of the selection of your
county officials, and that you will
be in influenced less by the per-
sonal claims of a candidate than
by his capacity to render faithful,
efficient and economical service.
My record as sheriff from 1911 to
1914, inclusive, has stood the
closest scrutiny of my political
opponents and of the state in
spectors, and there is nothing in
it for which I feel that there is
need that I should apologize. I
do not say that I made no mis
takes, for I am but human, but
any blunders that I made were of
the head, and these are a sort
that experience enables one to
avoid. I believe that I will be
even better qualified for the po-
sition by reason of my two years'
retirement to private life, for I
can now see better the duties of
this office as related to the indi-
vidual citizen. To all who know
me I need not give any assurance
that I believe in the strictest
economy consistant with efficien-
cy and that I favor a strict en-
forcement of all laws—against
the strong and influential offend-
er as well as the poor and friend-
less- Chas. F. Buzzi.
