We are glad In know thai Ibe

nieticed. The I'ricc My era Cytn
paiiy have niirnt altout fifly Hioiih
ami dollar* in Greer enmity, drill•
nig for oil. mid il in no wonder
that they Iwcatiu- di*outaged and
«|iiil la*t December. Mr Myern
tnnk up the matter with the com
pauy and now ha* control nl the
well and five acre* of the lease, and
will gooti with the work a» aoon
a* he tan comply with the con
ditions, one of which in to get the
leaae* renewed to date, to make
np for the lout time In the loan
fttniKKle to reach the oil.
Mr. Myera still maintains his
belief that Greer comity, soouer or
later, will In-come one of the great
oil fields of the United States, and
no matter what onr opinions may
he, we ougbt to lend all the en-
couragement we can. And if .so
Miiall a matter as the renewal of the
leases is all that is asked, every
man, woman and child ought to
get a move on them and see that
it is done
If the work is now |iertuatiently
stopped, it may Ik* twenty years
before any one else will under-
take the work Mr. Mvers says
that if any one thinks that he has
a snap, he will let them step in his
place if thev will raise the money
and go on with the work, aud in
addition to this he will lease them
more of his land than any other
man in this field In* leased. Most
of the great oil fields have been
discovered by some one persons
persistency, and a united support
by the citizens, and there i> no
reason why Granite cannot win
out on this Hue.

read from Qod's book comforting scrip
