GOING AFTER OIL AND GAS.
The oil and gas companies recently
l organized in Cleveland county are
getting busy in the matter of secur-
1 ing drillers to develop their leases,
and the "field" is attracting the at-
______________ cution of numerous outside oil men.

company directorate had a meeting
Saturday night and elected S. K. Mc-
Call as president, with W. L. Eagle-
ton us secretary. They are in negotia-
tion with the Davis Drilling company
of Ardmore to put down their well,
and it is probable that company will
get the contract. The well will be
drilled on the Braman land in section
31, near Big Jim's crossing, which has
been designated by geologists as the
most likely prospect. This location,
too, is near the center of the 3,500
leased acreage, so it gives everybody
a fair show.
The Transcript learns that a rig
is being erected some six miles north-
east of Lexington, east of the Frank
Boggs school quarter, and the promo-
ters mean to go down 3,500 feet to
make a thorough test. This is what
is known as the Jack Etheridge com-
pany, organized in and around Lex-
ington. It is also said that the Celve-
land Oil and Gas company, which
has a large body of land leased in
the southeast part of the county, will
have a rig up in a few weeks. And
then the Rucker-Pickard company
that have leases southeast of Moore
is also making arrangements to put
down a well on their prospect.
So it would seem there is to be con-
siderable activity in oil and pas cir-
cles in Cleveland county during the
coming year. The land owners along
the South Canadian should get busy,
too, for the Transcript believes there
is good prospects there if they were

Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Ramey. The home
was very artistic in its decorations
of the season. The tables were taste-
fully designed and the hand-painted
place cards were of Thanksgiving
scenes. An elaborate five-course din-
ner was served. Mrs. Castle, in her
usual charming manner, presided as
''Toast Mistress" and in response,
very interesting and humorous talks
were given by Mr. Keiger, Mrs.
Shannon. Dr. Day, Mrs. Rucker and

lease twenty feet wide and a mile
long, near Augusta. The lease is on

Oklahoma City. Okla., Dec. 2.—
The Corporation Commission has re-
fused t0 order Wells, Fargo & Co.
express installed at Lexington, a
town in Cleveland county that has no
railroad, but is just two miles from
son, Purcell, in old Indian Territory, that
who has a railroad. The Commercial club
of Lexington asked for the order. At
a hearing it developed that the pres-
ent express business of Lexington, as
shown in the office of the express
company at Purcell, is insufficient to
justify a pick-up and delivery service
in that town. Testimony was intro-
duced to show that if an express office
was established in Lexington the
business in beer would probably make
the office pay. The beer is now
shipped to a town some distance from
Lexington, which is in old Indian
Territory. In dismissing the com-
plaint, Commissioner Humphrey said:
"The policy of this state, as ex-,
pressed by its constitution and laws,
is against traffic in intoxicants and
we can not be justified in ordering
the establishment of an express sta-
tion to facilitate the handling of
