1 FIND EVIDEICE IF
What has been definitely proven to
re be an incendiary fire was checked be
h. fore daylight Monday morning, the
' extinction of the flames being just in
s, the nick of time to preserve the evi
'i dence which showed that the blaze
). had been carefully kindled by a fire
The house In which the fire was
discovered is located at 1140 Verret
Street and has been unoccupied only
t eight days. Among the evidence are
.e the facts that tour barrels, three filled
with kindling wood and shavings, and
y one with excelsior, all heavily satur
s ated with oil, were found in the va
cant rooms of the house.
K In addition the keyhole of the only
fire alarm box in th neighborhood had
r been tightly plugged with paper.
The flames were discovered Mon
day morning at 5 o'clock by Arthur
t Gayaut, 1042 Verret Street. Gayaut,
who ran at once to the nearest fire
alarm box, which is located at the
corner of Verret and Diana Street,
discovered that the keyhole had been
plugged, and he was therefore un
able to send in the alarm until he
had picked the bits of paper out of
The building was valued at $1,500,
r but Gayaut's quick work enabled the
t apparatus to reach the scene in time
to prevent more than $700 worth of
damage, and in time to preserve the
r evidence of incendiarism, which, in
addition to he details given above,
includes a broken demijohn which
had contained gasoline.
The building is owned by Santo
LGuistinamo, 517 Newton Street, and
the $700 loss is covered by insurance.
1 It is believed that malicious persons
desiring to injure the owner set fire
to the place.

Millions have been made in oil all
over the country, which is the best
possible proof that millions more can
be made. Most of the millionaires of
Oklahoma and California were made
by oil at 40 cents a barrel. Now oil
is bringing $2 a barrel at the well,
with premiums from the refineries
ranging from 25 to 85 cents a bar
rel. Certainly if 40-.ent oil can make
men wealthy $2.85 oil hardly can fail
to do less. Not only that but the de
mand for oil to-day is greater than
it has ever been. The country and
the allies need it for the thousand
and-one war purposes. Therefore, it
is not unlikely that oil will advamee
in price, because it must be had at
any price and the Loulsiana.4-othern
is out to get it.
First of all, this company poesitive
ly will begin drilling in Terrebonne
parish within sixty days. The pres
ence of gas there Indicates oil in pay
ing quantities It has about 1,000
acres of leases in likely territory and
most of it is offset, that is adjoining
property that has been developed or
in state of development.
Then the Louisiana-Southern is
going to extend its operations to Avoy
elles parish, near Marksville, where
oil already has been found. Geolo
gists, mineral experts, say that there
is a deep pool somewhere in the par
ish and that it can be found only by
a deep test. The Loulsianm-outhern
proposes to make that test and has
the money in the bank to drill just
as long as necessary.
Last. but not least, the Iooosiana
Southern is going to drill in Rapide
parish, near Boyce-a recognlsei oil
center. There are 1,000 acres of
leases In this territory that give good
promise of yielding oil and that In
big qnmntles. A gusher will mean
many new millionaires among the
men and women who are cooperating
with this company in its venture.
It should not be forgotten *that the
Standard, the Texas, the Atlas and
others of the large oil companies own
property near that of the LoUaisiana
Souhern and in some lnstarices they
have started drilling. This would in
dicate that faith in Louisiana oil i
