Geology Of Oil Little
The principles governing the
origin and mode of occurence of
petroleum and natural gas are
as yet but fragmentary grasped
by geologists. Every oif field
examined in detail contributes
its data for use in the eventual
interpretation of the problems,
and each pool is studied with
keen alertness for the discovery
of pome key that may aid in the
coordination of the data, which
sometimes, according to the
region and conditions, seem, on
account of our lack of know
ledge, even to be in conflict. The
observations made by the geolo
gists of the United States Geolo-
gical Survey in the oil and gas
fields of Califo-nia and Kentucky
promises to further the solution
of some of the problems, and t>y
pointing out the relations of oil
and gas occurrence to the geolo
gic structure of the regions ex
amined they have rendered im-
portant scientific as well as
economic aid in oil and gas
development; but the basic prin

The sudden resignation of
Meyer and the following events
came as a bombshell to every
one. That the confession from
one of his assistants who testifi-
ed for him in the recent prelim
inary hearing to the effect that
he at that hearing, had perjur
ed himfelf, was the direct result
of the events, is generally admit-
ted. It was also reported that
the quiet hand of a former stat.e
official who hai been summoned
as a witness in the case had
much to do with this event.
Mr. Meyer gave as bis reason
for resigning that the recent
charges against him were seri
ously affecting the health of his
wife and mother and for their
sake he withdrew.
J. C. McClelland, who succeeds
Meyer, is connected with an Ok
lahoma City bank an<l was until
today a member of the state
banking board.
My Old Kentucky Home
A number of years ago a man
whom fortune had not treated
kindly, determined to seek a
better fortune in a new country.
So from Kentucky's bloody soil,
from the home of brave men
and of fued, down to Oklahoma,
and oil, ITulkerson and family
sought the good.
We refer to J. W. Fulkerson,
now the fortunate recipient of
the royalty of several oil wells.
Mr. Fulkerson finally settled
out in the sticks on the land
where Fulkerson camp now is-
Here by hard work he managed
to earn an existence for himself
and hisf imily, but the progress
toward competency was slow.
But one day two men, T. B.
Slick and B. B. Jones came into
that section and began putting a
hole in the ground on a place
near that owned by Mr. Fulkel-
son. From that holecame forth
the oil that men look for in Ok
lahoma, oil, which has made us
all happy. D. B. Shaffer told

son returned yesterday but will
again go back to Kentucky, this
time to live. He lias purchased
a beautiful home, the finest in
the country in which it is locat-
ed, on the banks of the Ohio.

' State Auditor Resigned
Twenty-four hours before he
was to be tried by the senate
sitting as a court of impeach-
ment, State Auditor Leo Meyer
placed his unconditional resigna
tion in the hands of Governor
Lee Cruce. The resignation
was at once accepted and J. O.
McClelland of Oklahoma City,
was appointed to succeed him.
The house, in executive session
dismissed" the impeachment
charges against the auditor.
Confeseion to the house im-
peachment managers by a cleik
of the state auditor's office which
tore down the defense of Meyer,
was the direct cause of the re-
signation and subsequent dis-
missal of the impeachment
charges, it is said. The confess-
ion, it is said, developed that the
evidence produced by Meyer at
his recent hearing on the crim-
inal charge of perjury, was false
and perjured.
It was currently reported
around the legislature this after
noon that criminal charges of a
serious nature will l>e filed
against Mejer very soon. It
was also reported that the house
had appointed a committee to re-
The price of oil leases in this
vicinity took a soar skyward,
the latter part of last week,
when the lease on forty acers of
the Owen farm, north and west
of Chandler, sold for $10.00 per
acre The buyers were S. A.
Kay, A. F. Key, Kate Gordon,
John Wagner and Col. Hoover.
Mies Tressa Washburn of Okla-
homa City made the assignment.
A certain Chandler lady,
prominent in society circles,
while chopping the other day,
experienced considerable trouble
in extracting a small coin from
her purse, so, to save time, she
iust dumped the contents of said
purse out upon the showcase.
Here is what was in it: Three
coupon checks, one ticket-chance
on a doll, a check for >5.00, one
pen knife, six keys, one pair
embroidery scissors, on pair nail
scissors, two pen points, two
postage stamps, a dime, a quar-
ter, a small linen handkerchief
and a yard of monogram letters.
The outside measurements of the
purse was one and one half by
three inches.—Publicist.
Deserter Surrendered
Ed Chasteen who deserted
from the United States army
about too years ago and who has
baffled all attempts to capture
him since walked into the post
office at Davenport Wednesday
and surrendered to Post Master
Burgess who is also a deputy
sheriff. He explained his action
by saying that he was tired of
being a hunted man and anxious
to take the consequences of his
desertion and be through with
it. Mr. Burgess took him to
Oklahomo City and turned him
over to army officer* stationed
there. He will probably be
taken back to the California
post, from which he deserted,
for trial and to receive whatever
punishment is placed upon him.
Mr. and Mrs. F. O. McLean
entertained the High school and
Eighth grade last Friday night.
Eight o'clock was the hour set,
and by that time ninteen of the
pupils had arrived. From the
time they arrived they were
kept busy playing games of
different kinds. One of the
gamed was an observation game
which proved how little we all
observe what is going on around
u* One of the other games was
a character study. They found
names on little slips of paper
pinned to the curtains. These

This machinery is what made

will pay for itself in one or

Any of this equipment can be

homa City is home again.
The News Publicist believes
that the people of Lincoln coun-
ty, by a large majority, favor
Oklahoma City as against Mus-
kogee for the official state fair.
And numerous readers have
been wondering why our repres
ensatives, J. B. Charles and F.
B. Hoyt voted for the Muskogee
bill. Oklahoma City is, com
partively speaking, right atom
door: liesides that city has, for
years, given us a state fair that
has won the admiration and
wonder of the whole Uuited
istorv, it i
years ago by one of our national
heroes to his sweetheart during the period of
'6l to '65. This great general will go down i •>
posterity as having accomplished one of the
most brilliant feats of arms in the history of
the world. He was as great a lover as he was
a general, therefore these letters combine au-
thentic history and exquisite romance. They
sound a human note that no other work of
literature has done in a decade; it is war, it is rotnance, it is
literature. You simply can't afford to miss this wonderful mii<
story of the Civil War now published for the first lime an- tout linin . all
