was here last Thursday and with

Miiler always have had and be-
lieve he is going to give Crescent
its tirst oil well notwithstanding
the claims of the Wichita Oil and

the tirst oil well, Miller says our
stand was really right on the oil
situation here and he had no com-
plaint whatever to make about
what we said but one exception
and that exception v.as that it
was stated that he was tied up
with the other fellows, he says
thi« is wrong, that he is playing
his own game and rather.suspi-
cions the other fellows are going
to rule on his money and waitun-
til he drills his well, hut then he
says that will not be long as
feels that this is a good gamble
here for a well.
Miller don't think we are light
ing be oil game in fact he said
that we were one of the most loy-
al newspapermen he ever saw
for his home oeople and Miller
once ran a paper himself.
But we are all hoping and we
are willing to boost any oii mars
game that will drill a well, but
we have yet not found aboundii g
faith in the late leasers, however
they may fool a fellow but we
stand ready to tie foo'ed but don't
think we will he.

Scottie the Wild Irishman is
preaching the old time gospel in
Ids un que way. The wiltering
nres of conviction is made mane-
fest at every service in the fact s
of men and women. The power
f God is on the man. People
are flocking from every quarter
dispite the verv inclement weath
er—but no wonder if you could
only hear that singing, those vio-
lins, pianos. organs and most
all kind of musical instruments
and that saxophone the Wizatd
has with him.

great singers, musicians ard
composers hut Reams like the
celebrated masterpiece of tlie
Wrecian Artist exhibits in ont
glow of associated beauty the
pride of e.ver.v model and the per
feet ion of every master. When
one hears him lie :s lift d by the
animation of force, vitality and
spirit in the music until he is
made to exclaim as Paul we are
li I'ted to the third heaven"and see
and hear "unspeakable thin s"
vet at the same timo while rest
ing on nuch loftv peaks we are
led by the selfsame force into the
valley of humility, and smiting
on our breast as the poor publi-
can exclaiming "Lord have mer-
cy on toe a sinner '; and as David
said "H-j hunibleth himself to
behold the things that are in
heaven, and in the earth!''
The service will continue eaeh
evening. We owe it to ou rselves
to co-operate in every way since
whatever may be achieved is ours
in a musical way and otherwise.
