Mamou Oil Well Spouts High Into
Space.
The oil well in Mkfa'mon prairie
spouted again Monday afternoon. C.
C. Duson and Miron Abbot of this
city, were present at the time, and
testify as to the truthfulness of thee
report.
The neeessary arrangements had
been made'to drive the casing, abd
the tw risch pipe had been 'placed in
the well again so the jets could be
used and the driving done at the
same time. But when the last joint
had been put down a rumbling was
heard in the bowls of the earth, and
immediatqJy following the noise the
oil gushed out of the well. This
happened about 12:30 p. in., and
there was a-steady stream of oil and
sand to a height of about Aeventy-five
feet until 5 :30 p. m., When it was
again choked off by the sand. There
were only one or two breaks in this
spout and they were only for a mo
ment at a time.
There was such a flow of oil and
sand that broke down the roof of the
engine house by falling on it. The
sand is now three feet deep all over,
the floor of the derrick and oil and
sand are scattered all over every
thing.
The two-inch pipe was then remov
ed and the ffbw stopped, as the sand
entre too fast for the pressure. Then
1 they put on six feet of four-inch pipe
and will try and drive the casing ear
ly in the roorniing by putting the
r driving plate on this four-inch pipe.
They will also put the two-inch
pipe in and use the jets for washing
the well so as be itbIt to drive at the
sane timne.
During-the spbut the dii and sand
was so thick that it drove all of the
workman out of the derrick and all
they could do was to stand off and
-look.
It is estimated that 5,000 barrels
of oil came out of the well during the
'seven hours it wias spouting.-Crow

The Commoner.
(Mr. Bryan's Paper.)
The Commoner has attained within
si months from date of the first issue
a circulation of 100,000' copieca record
probaoly never equaled in the history
of American periodical literature.
The unparalleled growth of this paper
demonstrates that there is room in the
newspaper field for a national paper
devoted to the discussion of political
economic, and social problems. To the
columns of The Commoner Mr. Bryan.
contributes his best effbrts; and his
review of political events as they arise
from time to time can not fail to inter
est those who. study public questions.
The Commoner's regular subscrip
tion price is $1.00 per year. We have
arranged with Mr. Bryan whereby we
can furnish his paper and THE
MERIbIOAiAL together for one year for
$1 65. The regular subscription price
of the two papers when subscribed for
separately is $2.00.
The talent is worthless which has
not its robts dcep it integtily.
Proctor Knott's 'Rabbit'Stoi q.
Since the Sampson-Schley oiti'
troversy has grown acute again,, a y`
the Kentucky Journal, there has beeh
considerable reference to 1 roctd'
Knott's "rabbit stogy" in connectioh
with the' credit for the victory at
Santiago. It is here'reproduced.
Ex-Governor Proctor Knott ank
John Yerkes were discussing the
claims of Sampson and Schley to the
credit of smashing Cervera at Santia
go. Mr. Yerkes tiok `the 'g4ohu
that all tle& honor of that memorable
conflict belonging to Admiral Sampi
son, and was inclined to entirely ig
nore Commodore Schley's part in the
affair.
The Governor listened until hik
copnpihion had finished, and tledi
with that cbaracteriatic twinkle in his
eye, said: "My dear sir, it isekeed .
ingly gratiffing to ine to hear yoh
take the position ydu have 'in slib
matter. It is like a balm to my con
science and settles a point that `had
worried me many a day. I wab
walking through the wopds once with
a boy friend of mine when we aaw'i
rabbit run into a ainkhtile. We
around the hole awhile; thei "1 'tol&
the boy to keep. watch while ,Z wen
to get some fire to~amoke 'ie 6ratbb
out. When I returned ike boy ba4
the rabbit. I tookit'away from hird
claiming that it belonged to me be'
chtise "I told him 'to catch it if it came
out. That was over 50 years, an&
you are the first man who has 'ever
agreed with me that the rabbit wab
mine. I feel now that I was ilght ik
taking it, and tny codncisede'_ s 'dt
rest."
Mr. Yerkes looked solemn fdr I
few moments, then smiled a `feeb'l
