JB4t1t4lS TO HAY
AN OPERA HOUSE.
A. D. McFarlain Will Erect A
One That Will be a Credit
i To The City.
:-The prayers of the unrighteous
inhabitants of Jennings, for al
new and strictly first class
theatre, have at last been an
swered. The progressive spirit
of A. D. McFarlain has heard the 1
call and he has decided to build a I
theatre that will be a credit to
any city having a population of 1
10,)00. The plans have been ac
cepted and were shown to a Ruc- i
ORP -man this morning. The
west wall of McFarlain's brick i
block will be replaced by aseries
of iron pillars and an annex, 30
by 100 feet added to the present
building. The lower floor of the
new building will be used as a
department store by Mr. Mc
Farlain. The upper stories will
comprise the theatre, The au
ditorium will be 60 by 100 feet,
with two tiers of boxes and a bal
cony. The fittings will be fold
ing opera chairs of the latest pat*
tern and strictly up-to-date in
every respect. The stage will
be large and commodious and
fitted with a large quantity of
first class' scenery. The scene
loft and stage together will be
three stories high, provided with
a stage entrance and property
o!ly, ator. i'he r,-:.n entrance
will be at :he fLout of the (build
ing,between the two store rooms.
Specifications are under prepar
ati ,n now and bids will be adver
t tised for in a very few days.
If there has been anything in
s the shape of a "long felt want"
-. in Jennings, of late years, it has
!r been for a bnilding of this kind.
Capitalists have been ashy about
t. conitructing anything of the!
r- sort for the reason that other

A Subject of Dee . Interest to
Our People as Told
by Mr. Heywood.
To a reporter of the Houston.
Post,,- Mr. Alpha Heywood in
speaking of the oil situation says
"The stories that the pressure
under the hill is diminishing
have no (foundation," continued.
Mr. Heywood. "Daily develop
ments in the field have demon
strated the folly of such state
ments and a test made at one of
our: wells not long ago settled the
matter beyond the shadow of a
doubt. Notwithstanding all this,
and the further fact that the
well was allowed to flow for only
seventeen minutes, the pressure
i gauge registered 107 |pounds, or
only three pounds less than the
I highest record made at a time
- when there were only a very few
wells on the hill. I am at a loss
to understand why certain pub
- lications persist in making state
s ments which are calculated to in
1 jure the field and which have ab
1 solutely no foundation.
I "It is a well known fact that a
f well may become choked to some
e extent by sand and rocks, and
a the flow be diminished somewhat
1 as a result, but in every case
r that has come under Imy notice
a such wells, when allowed to clean
I- themseives , ';, a s we.ll as
could possit y be expected.
"By the way," remarked Mr.
Heywood during the course of
the conversation, "I am of the
a opinion that within the next few
months or so a domestic burner,
s which will permit of the use of
'crude petroleum for fuel in cook
t stoves, ranges, furnaces, etc.,
, will be on the market here. A
' tre at need for something of this
( kind has existeil for solne time

d At Titusville, Pa., a few da
Lt ago, there occured the.-UA,
e of a $50,000 mn y'mnlent to the
:e memory of Coi. Ed win D. Drake,
n the dis:coo':r of petroleum.
s The situ cf this monument is
at the entrace to Woodlawn
r. cemetery in.the city named. A
f feature of interest is afforded by
e the fact that the giver of the
I monument desires his own iden
tity witheld, at least until after
rf his own death. The secret has
1Ih been well kept,but it is generally
b Leieved that the man who 'ar
ranged for the erection of the
Smonumernt, is Henry H. Rogers
of thl Standard Oil company.
