In tendering this, our prospec- o
tus, we wish to avoid flowery,
deceptive language, and to set
forth in detail a few simple, plain a
facts, briefly stating what we
ha-e done, where we have opera
ted and what we propose to do.
The Prairie Mamou Oil & Min
eral Co. L't'd, domiciled at Jen
nings, Calcasieu parish, La. is a C
duly organized and chartered
company, capitalized at $200,000.
Captain D. E. Sweet, president
of the Jennings Banking & Trust
Co., a man of unquestionable in
tegrity and pronounced busi
ness success, is president of this
From the organization of this
Company it has been the purpose
to select small plots of really oil
lands throughout the oil belt of
Calcasieu parish, ignoring in a
measure large bodies of indiffer
ent lands without promise, upon
which leases could be procured
at nominal figures. Following
up this idea they have purchased,
First.-Twenty acres near the
Hackberry well that is full of
promise, the well being down
near 1,000 feet, with every indi
cation of success. The stock of
this well is now at par value.
A peculiar feature character
izing this well,which lies thirteen
miles southeast of Sulphur Mines
is, that before the day when sul
phur was extracted by heat a
spring at Ilackberry flowed very
cold water, which today is alnemost
as hot as hot c,,fTee. We also
purchased live acres near the
Vinton wells which have struck
several stratas of oil, published
to the world.
OIL CO MP'NY.
Will begin drilling at once on our 100-acre
tract adjoining the Jennings well. Pipe and
machinery are here. CE Jones, an experi
enoed driller, who has brought in four gush
ers on the Beaumont Spindletop, has con
tracted to put down two wells for us.
The Compnlany has a line large list (of Iholdinrs, cnsistilng of 5(
acres at (lifferent points near n and adjoiiningr the.1c nniiings well. The
Mamou Prairie tracts twned by the comLpany is (one of the best in
that splendid field.
Work will colmence ,on this tract very shortly and investors
will do well to seeu a stock before an advan:ce is made.
15,000 Shares Only of a par value of
$1 Will be Sold at 50c Each.

gas and oil indications on Bayou
Blue, about fifteen miles north
of Jennings, we purchased Bayou
Blue Springs, covering a hill of
about five arcres on Bayou Blue.
We also have forty acres three
miles north of the Jennings Oil
Well, where gas and oil abound
and upon which it was at first -
intended to sink a well. But thie
climax was struck when after
much labor and time had been
spent, ANSSE A. LA BU'ITE,the
SPINDLE TOP of MamouPrairie a
was secured, and this is a real
Spindle Topin every sense. This
six acres lies within a mile of
Bayou Cane, tributary of Mer
mentau river and just north of
Mermentau station where the
e Southern Pacific railway crosses
the Mermentau river, giving
r easy and cheap access to an out
let to market.
This is where the Prairie
Mamou Oil & Mineral Co., L't'd
i will within the next 30 days be
gin to sink a well with the prom
ise in advance of a gusher. It is
about one-fourth of a mile south
)f east of the noted gushing well of
i the Jennings Oil Co.
1 \ We intend to bore our second
Swell on Bayou Blue. We have
>f ihases upon several hundlred
acres of lands on which we would
bore in event others see fit to

. S. orfalls OnAdvertislj
Economy often defeats its own ends. Sometimes economy is
extravagant. Sometimes not spending is more expensive than
of So in advertising. That is an economical expense. I call it an
expense to avoid argument. In reality it is an investment.
In a ten-dollar advertisement the last two dollars pay better than
Pa- the other eight. Maybe an eight-dollar ad. wouldn't pay when a
ten-dollar ad would. .Maybe that extra
space is just what the ad. needs to lift
it out of oblivion-to make it promi
st nent-to make it pay. 'ag -
oo8tr erY Don't buy more space than yont
MORE srwG need, but don't buy too little, either.
rooNu eca.. . Better buy too much than too little.
Better put an" eight-dollar ad. in a ten
dollar space than to put a ten-dollar
tics ad in an eight-dollar space. One way
L. you are out only two dollars; the other
way you are out eight dollars.
Save money on your advertising if
you can, of course, but save it in the right way. Cut off the little
leaks-the programs, the bills of fare, the directories, the wall charts,
the pages in "souvenirs " Cut them all off, and your trade will
* never feel the difference.
s Cut off the inconsequential papers if you have to, but always
keep your ad in your best papers, big enough to do you justice. It
is better to convince a few people than to talk to many..
You will always find that the best papers give you more for your
money than any other media.
La. Don't think one paper
high-priced because the rate -
is a dollar an inch, and
0. another one low-priced be- e .
cause it is ten cents an inch.
Usually the more you
pay for advertising the cheap.
er it is.

lun- course. They prove the S
