nouncement that four hundred thou-
nd shares of treasury stock of the
impany will be issued in the near fu-
ture. Subscribers will be given the
right to subscribe to approximately
one-third of their present holdings at
the underwriters price. The stock was
underwritten by a New York syndi-

thorized' capital of the company is
$9,000,000 and when this new stock
is issued the outstanding stock will
total $6,750,000. There is little doubt
but that there will be a rush of stock-
holders eager to get the stock at the
underwritten price as the stock is now
selling at $16 a share. The company
has a daily production of more than
20,000 barrels of which about 12,-

i the following paragraph: "Whether
or not the Prairie Oil & Gas company
ket price this morning makes but very
little difference to anyone except
those connected with the Prairie
lines. These people still receive their
usual portion of the ill treatment that
that company has always handed
them. The Prairie, when it does meet
the advance, should be compelled to
date it back to the eighth of the
month. In the meantime, sentiment
against that concern grows stronger
daily. It is a wonder to us how they
can ignore the growing sentiment in
favor of the other companies. There
is an old adage, which reads: 'None
so blind as those that won't see,' an
adage that must have been intended
for the Prairie."
Isn't that awful gravy, Mabel? We
imagine that the stockholders of the
Prairie couldn't sleep for the workings
of a guilty conscience when they read
it. Bet they're all broken up at being
hammered so "unmercifully."
