CHANNING WELL LOOKS GOOD
STRONG SHOWING OF OIL
the times, texhoma. OKLABOMA
By far the best showing of oil that
has ever been found north of the Can-
adian river was encountered in the
well three miles north of Channing
and 25 miles south of Dalhart Tuesday
night and again Wednesday ilfchj of
this week. A stream of Dalhart peo-
ple have been visiting the well for
several days, and are anxiously await
ing the development of the next few
days, which will undoubtedly tell the
tale so far as this well is concerned.
The hole is now more than 4000 feet
in depth, and is in perfect condition.
The bit encountered the "black lime
several days ago, and slight traces of
oil have been noticed from time to
time for several days. Wednesday
* night parties from Dalhart filled a
number of fruit jars with the "slush"
as it came from the bucket, and Dal-
hart people have been examining the
contents with more than ordinary in-
terest. Of course, the major part of
the slush is water, but there is no
question as to the petroleum eontent,
as it is plainly visible on the side of
the jar and on top of the slush. No
estimate is made of the amount of oil
the well is producing, and the drillers
are still going down and hope to
strike the real pay sand any time.—

With the Coble-Heywood test now
down a depth of 2,800 feet, the hole
as straight as can be and twelve and
a half inches wide, interest in the ven-
ture is increasing among the resi-
dents of Spearman, who are predict-
ing that an oil well is going to be
brought in within the near future.
Although one can stand at the well
j and toss a pebble into living water in
almost any direction, it is a fact that
not a single drop of water has been
yet touched by the drill, showing that,
technically, at least the geological
' formation at this point is perfect.
A dip of two hundred feet in the
| structure, as compared with that in
the Amarillo gas territory, has been
'• evidenced, but aside from this favor-
able indication, the formation has
[ been running "right." There is a dif-
j rrence in surface altitude of about
j That there is a most profitable salt
i bed underlying the surface at the well
j is shown by the fact that ninety feet
of rock salt were penetrated by the
drill at the shallow depth of 700 feet.
No gas showing has yet been had,
but drillers are expecting to penetrate
the gas sands within a short time.—

DRILLING FOR GAS
PROPOSED 34 YEARS AGO
One of the most interesting ser-
vices held at the First Christian
church for many months was the
Memorial service held last Sunday
morning, in honor of the late Dr. Ar-
chibald McLean, President of the Uni-
ted Christian Misionary Society. He
had been a leader in the work of the
Christian church for 40 years, and
was universally loved and honored
for his work's sake. A large por-
trait of the great leader was unveiled
and the congregation was deeply
moved by the service that followed.
At the evening service the pastor
preached the first of a series of Sun-
dav everting sermons on "How to get
into the Kingdom of Christ and stay
in." The first one was "The Necessity
of Conversion". Othres in order
will be "A Murderer Saved."
This will be next Sunday
night. Others will be "Conversion of
a Devout Army Officer," "Conversion
of a Nobleman',- "Was the Thief on
the Cros Saved?" and "The Conver-
sion of the Business Woman." His
Sunday morning sermons for the next
• month" will be on Leading characters
in the Bible. The first will be next
I Sunday morning on "Jonah as a
Preacher". Others will be "Personal
j characteristics of the Apostles". "The
I Greatest Preacher Among the Apos-
tles', "Noted Wicked Characters of
the Bible," "Leading Women in the
Bible", and the "Ideal Young Men of

Oak City Town Co. Located Three
Quarters Mile From Bunting No 1
Wanted to Drill for Gas in 1 87.

morning in steaicn ••-,ns a
paragraph stood xoi n.e page
which fairly took t.ie Irt*.• i.-'i. breath
away so prophetic wnf u ... iiuructer
of what has developed'thirty-four year
later. The article was in regard to
the then new and thriving townsite
of Oak City, located southwest of the
present location of Liberal. The
townsite was just about three quar-
ters of a mile from the present locat-
ion of Bunting well No. 1. The para-
graph reads in part: "The Oak City
Town Company is taking out two or
three charters one for boring for coal
one for gas and one for waterworks.
Of course this may seem a little pre-
mature to mention gas, bjit in boring
for coal we may find either gas or ar-
In the light of present events one
can only wonder "Why didn't they do
it?" That paragraph appeared in the
March 10, 1887 issue of the News. If
drilling had commenced then—but
who can picture what would have ta-
ken place? As Abe K. Stoufer, the
' editor of the News then, remarked
this morning when his attention was
[called to the item: "That was one of
''the time when opportunity knocked
and nobo<l$ went to the door."

in Oak City realize what the years
would bring forth. Although all tra-
ces of the little city have been erased
the gas was there and what's more

General weather and crop condition:
The last two weeks of the month were
moderately warm with the exception
of the snow storm period from the
to the 20. The depth of snow varied
! from 6 incehs in the northwest to 18
inches in the east center, while the
temperature ranged from 10 to 20 de-
grees above zero on the morning of
the 10th. Soil moisture is ample ev-
erywhere and plowing and sowing of
I oats and barley are making good pro-
1 gress. There is a greatly increased
I interest in truck gardens and more
I self support thru the cow-sow-foul
route. More separators are being
bought and incubators have been start-
ed; more meat and lard than usu<
have been put up. There seems to be
' an inclination to return to first prin-
ciples of producing everything that
we need in Oklahoma. No state in the
' union is as well adapted and diversi-
' fied in its products as Oklahoma.
Wheat sown in September has gen-
erally stooled better than the later
| sown, but has made good root. There
is much uneasiness over the possible
damage from the green-bug. The ap-
pearance of the parasites which ordi-
narily hold the green-bug in check has
been noted in Texas and Oklahoma.
The freeze of the 20th seems to have
had some effect upon the more recent-
ly born green-bugs without noticea-
bly affecting the mature stages. Re-
ports of green bugs on volunteer
wheat and oats are fairly well scat-
tered all over the state, but they have
done very little actual damage so far
but are three or four weeks in ad-
vance of the usual time for them to
cause damage to wheat in Oklahoma.
The growing condition of wheat is
good; the snow was of great benefit.
Some reports show a falling off of
oats acreage due to fear of the green
bug, but others indicate an increased
amount of seeding. A number of
farmers are sowing sweet clover in the
Barley is doing very well. One re-
porter states that this year corn will
be grown only on corn land.
