HEYWOODS TO BORE HERE.
Another Oil Company to Operate in the
A special last Friday from Beaumont
says: It is understood here this evenin,
that the Heywood Oil company has closed
an extra large lease near Welsh and will
tomorrow ship a rig there for the purpose
'of boring for oil. They state that the sign,
there are everything in favor of striking
oil in as large quantities as at JenningEs
There is one hand-made well about four
feet square that was dug thirty feet and
now the gas comes with such profusion
that it was rather the appearance of a
tubulent toiling pot than of water com
ing from the earth. It is impossible to
drink or use the water at all and the gas
when comped up for a minute is so strong
as to overcome the experimenter if he
gives it any atitude whatever. The whole
earth is said to show gas ouL-croppin~s
land he oil isexpected at a shallow depth.
Up to Wednesday the outfit had not
arrived here and no definite information
could be obtained concerning large lease,
but it is generally surmised that the Hey
woods wil loperate in the Smith farin

NEWS FROM THE LAKE ARTHU]
Those Who Are Attending-The Worl
That Is Being Carried Out
- ther N:ws.
July 1.-Yesderday was the calm afte
the big storm. The big crowd of nice!i
dressed Sunday-comers, who overflow th
tabernacle and grounds on Sunday hai
left; but the religious snthuseastn, tan
good sermons were not lessened one iota
The Sunday -comers swell the crowd; bu
add little or nothing to the spiritual par
of the meeting, but as the evangelist m
on the lookout for these people, he di
aets his remarks at them, and very oftel
makes them wish they were in anotha
Yesterday morning Rev. R. P. Howel
filled the pulpit at 9 o'clock. He gave
a heart to heart talk from Judel: 9
His congregatiqp was blessed and en
corraged in their religious work. Ti
was a talk to religious people.
At 1 ! c'ock Rev. Hurey nreached tc
., good con.,regation. His text was taker
from I Thes, 3: 10. He landed with
both feet on the back of these whining
over-burdened, long-tongued,. back-bitinig
christians. Christ has promised to beai
the burdens of christians, and they have
no right to be anything but care-free and
'.he 3 p. m. service was conducted
very admirably by Rev. Turner. He used
as his text Eccl. 7: 14; and his congrega
tionr. enjoyed a real treat.
At 8 o'clock Rev. Harney again preach.
ed. His subject was "Remember K)w."
11ien cir is either a blessing or it is a
curse. The reason the christian meets
death with shouts of joy and victory
is because he remembers the day of his
conversion, and the consistency of his
life. The reason the sinner fights so
hard against death is because he or she
remembers the sins of his or her past life,
wasted opportunities, etc.
About twenty persons were convertid
and sanctified yesterday.
Among those camping are Ge. E. Fonte
