THOUSANDS TO NEGRO
little creek nation girl
has claim with oil wells
Isabel Lewis, the Daughter of a For-
mer Creek Slave, Falls Into
Great Luck by Allotment.
The boundary lines which separate
the lands of the Creek, Cherokee and
Osage Indians converge to a point In
the north central part of the new state
of Oklahoma. A few miles south of
this point, in the Creek nation, lives
a lltle negro girl named Isabel Lewis,
the daughter of a negro who was
formerly a Creek slave. This little
girl owns eighty acres of land, part
of her allotment, In the new "Glenn
pool" oil district, which is giving her
an income such as only millionaires
can have. There are three oil wells
on her land, each of which is produc
ing 1,000 barrels of oil per day, and
each of which Is capable of having
its daily capacity doubled.
It is the announced intention of the
company that has leased her land, to
put down seven more wells. If
they cach produce as much as those
already drilled, and there is no reason
to doubt it, her royalty of one-eighth
of the entire amount produced at 52
cents per barrel, the present market
price of oil, will give her a daily in-
come of $650, or an annual Income of
$237,000. At 5 per cent that amount
would be the interest on a capital
of nearly $5,000,000.
Under the lease which Isabel Lewis
has granted to the operators who
have leased, and which was approved
by the secretary of the interior, the
oil which is her daily share is turned
into the pipe line of the Standard Oil
company and the money it represents
is at once placed to her credit.

A Happy Medium
Lots of people feel that they cannot afford to pay for the highest
priced pianos, but neither do they want the cheapest.
Well, there is a happy medium, a piano which sells at a very mod-
erate price, within easy reach of almost anyone and which Is at the
same time a thoroughly good Instrument, in every sense of the word
beautiful clear rich tone, exquisite case design, and first class con-
the bush 4 lane piano
eets every requirement, not only of the keenly critical musician, but
also of the economically Inclined purchaser who wants a piano which
will not play out after It has had a few years service and which
will retain all of its original sweetness and richness of tone.
We know the Bush and Lane piano thoroughly, have sold hundreds
of them in this neighborhood, all of which have given entire satisfac-
tion, and we unhesitatingly state that we believe it to be the very
best piano In the market today at the price asked. Our personal guar-
an tee goes with that of the manufacturer.
Come In and see these pianos. Its well worth your while.
