Predicts the Greatest Oil

Big: Springs, Texas. July 7. A num

terested in the Toyah oil field, secured
the services of a noted geologist and
oil expert for a 20 days' exploration
of the field
In his report he,refers to U. S. geolog
ical survey bulletin No. 260, series A,
Economic Geology 53, pages 573" to
5 5, which can be secured in any public
library, or at Washington. This sur
vey shows that here is the greatest de
posit of sulphur-gypsum and salt in all
the "known world, which he finds to

45 in block 59 will be known as the
center oil field, and around sections
42. 43, 44 and 45, Jn block 70, will be
known as the lower oil field, and will
be one of the wonderq.of the world."
"When drilling wells, use 12 inch
casing," -the report advises, "until the
s-lphur flow has been cut off; paint the
outside of the casing with at least two
coats of thick mineral paint, as this

If it is desired to go to the third oil
sand, reduce the ensing to six inch. All
indications show that the third oil sand
will be reached at a depth of about
2200 feet, and the fourth, the fifth and
the sixth oil sand may exist, for the
head of this oil Is simply marvelous.

The report also states 'that the

"log" of the first well has been kept

of any statement that oil is not found

made to "shoot" the well.
Field Similar to California.
Continuing, the report says: "Draw
an Imaginary line three miles west of
the present well In section 16 to a
point two miles west of the Moody well.
Note the many hills in the vicinity of
Burnt springs and Pettican springs.
They aro gas blow-outs. South of Peti
can springs I find the fold that made
the Lakeside gusher in California so
famous, with its production of 4,000,
000 barrels of oil within SO days. This
fold, which is in block 70, is of ajclose
grain deposit of material that resembles
a. cement formation, and it has perfectly
impounded this great bodr of oil in the
three stratas that are known to exist
The fold was traced eastward for sev
eral miles, and there will be found the,
greatest bodies of oil and much gas.
"Xorth of ths fold and immediately
along its north edge in sections 42, 43,
44 and 45, in biock 70, lying directly
south of sections 44 and 45 in block
59, is property that you should secure,
If the very -est property is jleslred.
Sections S, 16 and 17 in block 59 are also
in the oil basin, and great quantities of
oil will be found there."
"The oil sands being full to over
flowing, but held back by this fold,"
the report also states, "the oil natur
ally backs up towards the north, as
this "fold cuts off its "avenue of escape
to the south, and it may back up for
many miles, as it has been many hun
dred years in forming thfs vast, mag

"Relative to the value- of section 8,v
block 59, every acre of land in this sec
tion is worth $5000. I find the oil is a
lubricant grade and has been used by
the T. & P. Railway company- on sev
eral engines, and pronounced a fine
grado of valve oil. When making this
test on these engines, ahe oil was drawn
direct from the wells and used with no
refining, but it contained no grit what

and supposed to contain a secret Is
laughable to an experc, for the drilling
dump and slush were not removed,
which proves the formation. The cap
rock was reached at a depth of 1860
feet and it was the intention to only
slightly crack this cap-rock, -but one
blow too many was made with the
heavy drill, and up rose the oil.
Before the drftl and rope could be
quickly drawn out of the casing, the
oil had risen some SOO feet on the
rope. It can easily be determined that
the oil must have been very near to
the top of the casing when the drill
was withdrawn. A pointed plug was
quickly driven inipthe casing and a
cap securely screwed on. Then dirt and
sand was piled on top of the cap to
prevent the escape of too much of the
gas. A small shot of nitro will make
this well a "gusher."
"I really believe this is the full in
tention of the company now making
developments there to put down a num

shoot them, but not until it hassss

the same If It -was trying to develop this
field. The operating company knows
the value of everyacre in the upper
field, and until another company puts
in its own rigs and drills, the matter
will be kept as quiet as possible. This
Is business. If you want a portion of
one of the greatest oil fields in the
world, the opportunity is now opened
for you, now is the opportune moment."

New York, Jufy 7. Former president
Roosevelc deaU A:tu governor Hughes,
the New York legislature, and primary
reform in a signed editorial article in
thM current nvnber of The Outlook.
Mr. iCouseveK writes in part as follow.-:
"I LoU-ive that governor Hughes has
beer, suppoited by the bulk of the wis
est and most disinterested opinion as
regards most of his measures and po
biiions, and I think that this has been
markedly the case as regards primary
"I knew that many honest and sin
cere toon are 01 principle opposed to
jrovernor" Hushes on this uoint and I
know also that the proposed reform
will very possibly accomplish less than
its extreme advocates expect. j
"Put I nevertheless feel in the first ;
place that on the fundamental issue of j
direct rrimary nominations, cthe gov- i
ernor is right, and in the second place '
that as the measure finally came up for j
action in the state legislature, it was j I
wcil nigh free from all objections save
those of the men who object to it be
cause they are fundamentally opposed
to any change whatever.
"Those who believe that by their ac
tion they have definitely checked the
moieuient for direct popular primaries,
are. in my judgment, mistaken. In its
essence, this is a movement to make
the government more democratic; more
responsive to the needs and -wishes of
the people as a whole. "With our po
litical machinery, it Is essential to have
an efficient party, but the machinery
ounrhi to be suited to democratic and
not oligarchic customs and habits.
"-The question whether in a self gov
erning republic we shall have self gov
erning parties is larger than the partlc
riar bill. We hold that the right of
popular self government is incomplete
un'ess it includes the right of the vot
ers not merely to choose between can
didates when they have been nomi
nated, but to say -vrho these candidates
"There is no desire to break down
the responsibility of party organiza
tion under duly constituted party lead
ership, but there Is a desire to make
this responsibility real and to give the
members of the party the right to say
when they desire to execute this lead
ership. "I believe that the people of Xew
York state will, in the end, insist on
taking a more direct part in the nomi
nation of candidates because I believe J
iney win grow more and more to Insist
on just the kind of guidance and lead
ership that I have mentioned."

MAY MAKE PROTEST
Madriz Protests at the Atti

Washington, I. C, July 7. That at
least three and perhaps more of the
Central and South American republics
will make a concerted protest of some
kind at the coming international con
ference of American states at Buenos
Ayres against the Central American
policy of the United States, Is the pos
sibility being discussed.
"According to international law,"
said Madriz In a note to his consul at
Washington, "no neutral . government
may impede or disturb In time of war,
legitimate military operations of bellig
erents. Foreigners equally with na
tives, are subject to the contingencies
of these operations."
Madriz not only meant this, to be com
municated 0 American officials, but
has protested to every Central and
South American government against the
attitude of the United States.
On the diplomacy of the American
dolegates to the conference may depend
largely the outcome of the matter.

RELIGIOUS DEBATE IX
SPAIN- WAXES WARM.
Madrid, Spain, July 7. Religious de
bates are raging in both houses of par
liament. The delegate for Madrid, leading the
attack in the senate, claimed that the
laws of the church are the laws of the
country because the constitution makes
Catholicism the state religion.'
Premier Caneljas In reply declared'
that the invasion of state sovereignty
by the church was no longer tolerable.

young: lady in a rajah silk gown, a
flimsy panama hat tilted well over her
nose, with a red feather that stood
erect as if always in a state of sur
prise, turned the bushes and came to a
stop almost at King's elbow. He had
time to note in his confusion thatshe
was about shoulder high alongside him
and that she was staring up into his
face with amazed gray eyes. After
ward he was to realize that she was
amazingly pretty; that her teeth were
very white and even; that her eyes
were the most beautiful and expressive
he had ever seen, that she was slender
and imperious and that there were
dimples In her cheeks so fascinating
that he could not gather sufficient
strength of purpose to withdraw his
gaze from them. Of course he did not
see them at the outset. She was not
smiling, so how could he?
The prince came to the rescue. "This
is my Aunt Loraine, Mr. Mr." He
swallowed hard and looked helpless.
"King," supplied Truxton "Truxton
King, your highness." Then, with all
the courage he could produce, he said
to the beautiful lady: "I'm as guilty as
lie. See!" He pointed ruefully to four
goldfish which he had strung upon
wire grass and dropped into the edge
of the pool.
"Please put those poor little things
back in the pool, Mr. King," said the
lady in perfect English.
"Gladl3, with the prince's permis

prince looked glum, but Interposed no
It must be confessed that King's
composure was sorely disturbed. He
glanced up to find her studying him,
"I-ust wandered in here," he began
guiltily. "The prince captured me
down there by the big tree."
"Did 3rou say your name is Truxton

the brains and the activity of a rabid

plain language, they were "reds."
The nominal leader was William
Spantz, he who bad a son in the
prince's household, Julius Spantz. the
master of arms. Far off in the hills
above the Danube there lived the real

Olga Platanova was cast aside; but not
forgotten. He became the husband of
an unloved, scrawny lady of diadems.
When the situation beame more than
