Notes About Oil Field.
W. R. Childs, of the Childs syndi
cate of Marietta, Ohio, and S. M.
Scott, of Beaumont, Texas, represent
ing the Central Oil Refinery Company,
were here two days this week in the
interest of the refinery to be built west
of town. While here the gentlemen, j
it is reported, bought four acres of
land in the proven field, two from E.
S. Wood, one from the Welsh Oil and
Development company and one in the
JL st Smith sub-division. The company ex
) pects to begin operations at once in
. connection with the refinery. Mr.
Wood informs us that the company
pays him $25,000.00 for the two acres
he sold it.
G. W. and W. B. Conover, of Jen
nings came over Monday to make ar
rangements to begin the development
of the Conover subdivision west of the
present wells. The derrick that was
ceS. blown down two weeks ago is being
rebuilt and the contract for boring a
well let to S. H. Keoughan. It was
the intention of Mr. Keoughan to
move a rig from Jennings with which
to drill this well, but owing to the con
dition of the roads it will be necessary
to wait until the Southwestern well is
completed and use that rig. The Met
ropolitan Oil company has an option
on twenty acres in the Conover tract
and in the event of a successful well,
agrees to pay $20,000 and develop the

e A woman recently died and left an
s estate consisting of seventeen cows.
To her eldest son she bequeathed one
half; to her second son one-third, and
to her youngest son one-ninth of the
estate. The executors were sorely
perplexed as to how to divide the
cows. At last someone suggested that
they borrow a cow from a neighbor.
This was done and the estate made
eighteen cows. The first son received
his one-half, or nine; the second son
received his one-third, or six; and
the third son received one-ninth, or
two, making seventeen in all. The
neighbor cow wads then returned with
