As In tho caso of most organizations

tho holdings of tho company. For
ten years or more, tho probability
ot tho discovery of oil has bcon

report that oil has been found on
some ot tho farms hold. At tho
present time, remnants of oil salt
wells may bo seen, some of which
wero abandoscd long ago because
production was Intcrferred with by
the appearance of oil, a commodi

valued.
The Salt Lick Oil and Mineral
