prospect and that the surface indications
are very similar to the fields of Shamrock

gether with the fact that there are produc-
ing wells North, South, East and West, gives
us faith in the property.

a second test if the first one should fail.
The citizens of Norman and Cleveland
county can scarcely realize the impetus this
test has givrn to the county. More than
100,000 acres of land has been leased in the
county. The Recorders office and Abstract
office have doubled their forces and are
working overtime and all linos are feeling
the effect. If oil or gas is found it means
that Norman will be another Bartlesville or
It we find oil, and we believe we will, it
will mean more than mere development to
Norman, as the stock of the company is
widely held here at home in small amounts,
and when we consider the large acreage and
small capital, a small investment will make
one rich if we succeed.
The Company has decided to offer to the
citizens of Cleveland county the remaining
300 shares at par of $10.00 each, through
the Fiscal Agents, Smith & Wilson.

REASON OF H. C. 0. L.
The reason for the high cost
of living is that living costs so high.
For instance, when a farmer gets
$163.25 for four hogs, the persons
who get a slice of those animals
naturally have to pay for it. That's
what Frank Monical got yesterday.
He hauled the four porkers to the
city and got a check for $163.25
