I mi r HAS RETURNED WITH GLOWING ACCOUNT OF PROGRESS MADE IN BORING ON HIS PROPERTY ALREADY FINDS TRACES 01' OIL AND GAS. ! Full of enthusiasm over the pros i pect of striking oil on his property in ! Texas, Col. S. J. Hilburn returned to I Palatka after an absence of two months. He may make a return trip I in the near future, especially if a I gusher is struck. ! In commenting on his trip Mr. Hil ; bum said: ; : I could write a book on myexperi ence and what I have seen in the oil fields of Texas, and might do so, were it not for the fact that I am sure no one would read it. The freight congestion has been so great, I have experienced great de lays. The contract for drilling re quired commencement on July 1st; but did not start until Sept. It went down rapidly to 700 feet, when there was a three weeks shut down on ac count of loss in transit of a car of casing and on account of this delay the well caved 200 feet. Finally all this was overcome and the driliinir ! is progressing nicely day and night. j I had a wire from my 'Brother Jhis morning that the Dallas News re ports my well down 1,500 feet with strong showings of oil. The driller has not yet confirmed the report. My land is right in the oil struc ture according to all the geological surveys. Over seventy per cent of the wells drilled in this structure are gushers. I The geologists claim that there are : 1 two oU pools under my land, one at 1 Broadenul u until it covers the about 1,600 feet and other it about cntlre 8tate Peninsula Oil Co., 30,000 feet. My contrac requires W:th adejuairters in Palatka, is tnak 'dvilUng to 3,500 feet or until oU is ' lng great strides md already has lo struck in paying quantities; also caW thw" attributing Points in ad that a second well shall be drilled if "tlon to Palatk. with two of them Vne first proves a dry hole. I Pesignated as storage points. Miami A showing of oil and gas was 8nd Pensacola will be storage points struck at 1,000 feet The drill has gone through sand, rock lime, coal ?late, blue shale and salt water. All the indications are very good and the driller who opened up the great oil field near my land at Desdemonia is enthusiastic over the prospects. He is a University graduate, a Masou and a Shriner, and I have every rea son to believe I'll get a square deal. In this effort I may fail; but should such be the case, I'll not regret the effort. None of us would ever make anything if we did not try. The oil fields in West Texas are the greatest in the United States. They produce 65 per cent of all the petroleum of the United States. ST.
