DRILLING CONTRACT LET.
Cleveland County Oil and Gas Com*
pany Lets Contract to Jenkins,
Baker & Eckford to Begin
Drilling by March,
Another development in the oil and
gas situation in Cleveland county
The Cleveland County Oil and Gas
company, of which Clyde Pickard is
president, and in which S. K. McCall,
Aaron McDaniel, M. F. MeFarland,
J. B. Dudley, W. C. Weir, Claude
Pickard and other leading men of
Norman and Cleveland county are
j interested, let a drilling contract to-
day (Wednesday) to Jenkins, Baker
& Eckford, to put down a well to the
depth of 3,500 feet in the center of
the northwest quarter of the north-
west quarter of section 26-G-l East.
This location i3 about a mile from
Box, in the southeast part of the
county. By the terms of the con-
tract the drilling must be com-
menced by March 15, 1917, and the
contractors will get busy at once,
pushing the preparations in every
way possiblt. ,
Jenkins, Baker & Eckford are
recognized as among the best and
i most reliable drilling contractors in
the state. They have had a world
of experience, and work only for the
Mr. Jenkins, who was here today
closing up the contract, is optimistic
concerning the outlook, saying the
prospects are as fine as at any lo-
cation he has ever had anything to
do with. He bases his opinion large-
ly on the report of geologists, all of
whom, after fully examined the field
; and formation have declared there is
; every indication of oil an gas. And,
also based on this opinion, a number
of the very largest and wealthest oil
companies of the state have secured
leases around the section of land on
j which the well will be drilled.
Merrs. Jenkins, Baker & Eckford
1 have also taken over the Eason-
Wanette well, and will continue the
drilling. This well is now down
! 3,100 feet, and the contractors ex-
pect to add some 400 feet to that
depth. The casing is being pulled
( out so that a "shoe" can be installed
to keep out -the flow of water, and it
j is believed something will be found
| in that hole.

, will be a great boom in oil and gas

; the next six month—that there will

OZARK TRAIL MEETING
Arrangements Made to Have a Two
D<i \ b' Holiday, When Every bod)
Will Help Work the Roads.
While there was not a great at-
tendance at the Ozark Trail meet-
| ing at the court house last night,
there was considerable "pep" in
the congregation, and some good
work was done.
A. H. Van Vleet presided and told
of a splendid meeting at Blanchard
yeste|rdj\y, where business men
farmers and citizens pledged their
earnest co-operation. Engineer Tuck-
er is to lay out the course over there
and the citizens will get busy on it.
Engineer Tucker gave his figures
on the cost of making a real road
from Norman to the east county line,
with cement culverts and bridges,
etc. He figured it at about $19,000
in Little River township alone, and
probably $30,000 from Norman to the
line. This was, of course, for a real-
up- and-a-coming road, but much
good road could be built for much
The Chamber of Commerce road
organization was placed in charge of
the Ozark Trail proposition, and
Chairman Tom Carey given power to
appoint assistants, captains, lieuten-
ents and high privates.
It was resolved to declare a "Two-
days' Good Roads Holiday," when
farmers, bankers, lawyers, news-
paper men, doctors, merchants and
citizens generally should get out,
shoulder a pick and shovel and get
busy. A mile of road at Big Jim's
was picked out for the first experi-
ment. It was pointed out that we
frequently declared a holiday for a
football or baseball game, and this
was of vastly more importance.
Every citizen will be requested and
required to take part—and woe unto
him who refuseth.
The meeting was a good one.
Everybody present realized the ne-
cessity, and everybody felt we should
do everything possible to put this
stretch of road in best possible shape.
Why waste your life trying to get
$25 worth of comfort from a cheap,
soggy "slab," when you can get a
real mattress with comfort assured?
