110 FIND GREAT
OIL FIELD HERE
fcran County Said By Geologists To
r? Ille-i-ed With Many Earmarks
rointinB To A Mighty Oil Pool
Hcncath Her Soil
u fin.ru is anything to oil geology.
uid there must be for it is through
hat cicnco that most oil fields have
Ln locatt'd Bryan county's fertile
..m u lint a covering for a miehtv
oil field which many believe when
uppcil will prove to be among the
rreati't the world has even seen op
ened up. and wnicn will shower un-
told wealth upon this section of tho
State inui muiiy uuvu cunuuence
i- itiU belief is attested by the num-
-w iil's set up for testing purnos-
. over the county and tho further
fict that leases nave Deen taken upon
countless thousands of acres of land
in eery section of the county.
Among the most optimistic of tho
.rninpLturs. is t. tioileau. heading
the operations of the Lucky 100 corn-
cany drilling at a depth of 1415 feet
tear Colbert and representing a syn-
dicate of men determined to find oil
to paying quantities or drill so deep
they run out of a hole in the attempt.
Mr. Uoileau himself is an oil geo-
logist and he avails himself of the
information furnished in the reports
and findings of many other geolo-
gists. Mr. Boileau points to four "ear-
narks" which indicate the presence
of a great quantity of oil under Bry-
an county. Summarizing these ear-
marks are as follows:
First the 90 degree latitude pas-
its a few miles east of Yarnaby
about twenty miles cast of this loca-
tion and it has been said that if you
want to look for oil look for a forma-
tion close to the 96 degree latitude
and drive your stake. This is proven
by the Illinois shallow wells the oil
fields of Kansas and the Osago fields
and in Texas the last few years has
proven this statement by the coming
of the Mexia Field Wortham Cor-
licana Kosse and way down in the
Gulf coast by the Hill Top Dome.
Second earmark is the Red River
Easin which is also known as an 'oil
Basin or Reservoir. You can hardly
find a fold and drill it in the Red
Biver Basin without oil. The average
is reported to be better than '97 per
cent. This is clearly demonstrated
from the Louisiana fields to the Burk-burnett.
Third earmark is the Preston Anti
cline which is proven by so many
oil field. A it. .. ..

suffered a broken neck.
