Kay county in search of gas or oil,
One well in Newkirk was put down
over 1600 feet striking an ocean of
salt water. In drilling this well a
flow of gas was struck at 600 feet.
The company also put down a well
nine miles southeast of Newkirk and
in it they struck a very fine crude oil;
but the flow is only about' three bar-
rels per day but the quality is ex-
cellent. Mr. McKinley had with him
a quart bottle of this oil just as it
came from the well. Mr. McKinley
is very jublilant oyer the find in last
well and company proposes putting
down another well in the spring
hoping to bring in an oil gusher.

D. L. Larsh and R. J. Morgan ar-
rived home from a months sojourn in
Old Mexico last Saturday morning.
They examined the Taninu tract of
land again and Mr. Larsh informs
us that while tract did not look as
good to him as first time he saw it
(he first saw it in the rainy season)
yet he stil! believes it a fine invest-
ment and believes the Norman colony
made a great mistake in throwing up
the deal. Within 5 miles of this
tract of land he road through thous-
ands of acres of land in a high state
of cultivation and the land very
similar to the Taninu tract. He be
lieves if the Norman fellows had
have seen the fine plantation within
five and ten miles of the Taninu tract
and the crops growing on the same
they would have formed entirely dif-
ferent conclusions concerning the
land. Mr. Grigsby a real estate man
of Illinois who was with Messrs. Mor-
gan and Larsh also informed us that
he believed the Norman fellows made
a mistake. He road down one side of
the tract and informed us that he saw
several thousand acres of fine land in
the tract. They also report that
many American colonies are locating
in that part of Mexico and in their
judgment in only a few years a big
advance in the price of land all
along the Panico Kiver will take
place and it will be one of the garden
spots in Old Mexico.

The Oklahoman newspaper is in
serious trouble now sure enough. In
last Tuesday's issue it characterized
Hon. Edgar Jones, of Guthrie, as a
"bachelor" along with Hon. Leslie
Niblack. If a man married over nine
years don't scoop down on the Okla-
homan and clean out the entire
force we miss our guess. Should Mrs.
Jones see the Oklahoman article
imagine the job of explanations
Edgar might have on his hands.
Worse than an alarm of tire at night,
is tha brassy cough of croup, which
sounds like the childien's death knell
and it means death unless something
is done quickly. Foley's Honey and
Tar never fails to give instant relief
and quickly cures the worst forms of
croup. Mrs. P. L. Cordier, of Man-
nington, Ky., writes: "My threo year
old girl had a everr case of croupe:
the doctor said she could not live, I
got a bottle of Foley's H inevand Tar,
the first dose gave quick relief and
saved her life." Refuse substitutes.

when you have a cold.
The first action when you have a cold
| should be to relieve the lungs. This is
I best accomplished by the free use of
| Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. This
remedy liquefies the tough mucus and
onuses its expulsion from the air cells
' of the lungs, produces a free expector-
ation, and opens the secretions. A
complete cure soon follows. This
I remedy will cure a severe cold in less
; time than any other treatment and it
, leaves the system in a mitural und
healthy condition. It counteracts
any tendency toward pneumonia. For
