34, 5 miles west of Liberal, and 3-4 miles south. We call your attention
to the exceptionally large and well-built tower and the five big boilers, fuel
for which has been gas from this company's well, No. 1. We are not In a
position to give definite information regarding this well at this.time. We
would ask that you watch the daily papers for reports in the future. The
fact that this large company has expended such a vast sum on this well, .
after having drilled No. 1, is good enough indication to us that a profita
ble development will result. ' - ,
. A Democrat representative accom
panied H. M. McQuigg of the
Traders Oil Corporation to the
big gas well on the .Boles farm
west of Liberal Tuesday after
noon to see the well given an
"airing". The well is opened at
frequent intervals to keep the flow
in good condition, and this was
the purpqse of the visit.
After standing in the derrick lis
tening to, the terrible hissing of
. the escaping gas, we can give per
sonal testimony that there is .
enough pressure there ' to suit
. The big valve was opened Blowly
at first, ' then turned loose com
pletely and we stood there with
a finger in each ear, and the noise
was terrible. There have been ru- '
mors that the flow of gas had
stopped but we know- absolutely
that such is not the case, and
while we are not in a position to
state positively that the flow is as
strong as at first, we are inclined
to believe it is. Liberal Demo

New Railroad Through Liberal
Kansas& Oklahoma Railroad Now Building
Drill for Oil in Stev
ens County, Kansas
The new( railroad being built by the Kansas & Oklahoma Railroad Co.,
will connect with the Wichita Falls & Northwestern at Forgan, Oklahoma,
(30 miles southeast of Liberal). This will give Liberal a very valuable out
let to the South. It is proposed to extend north and west from Liberal
through Stevens and Morton counties, Kansas, to the Colorado line, with
the objective point as Trinidad, or possibly some other good Colorado town.
At ttjis time a majority of the grading between Liberal and Forgan has been
done, and a grading crew has just completed the grade within the city limits
of Liberal, running west. i
When this new line has been completed, it will give Liberal a nearly direct
route to the Southern markets and. the coal fields of Colorado. It will open
up to Liberal one of the richest and fastest developing territories in the
Southwest, and will be a large contributing factor to the growth of our
little city in the future.
The Wonder Oil & Development
I Co., which owns a good block of
leases in Stevens county, are at
this time (September 1921)r haul
ing material and building a der
rick on a location 4 miles east and
3 north of Hugoton, the county
seat of Stevens county. This loca
tion is 21 miles west and 3 miles
i north of Liberal. The material
was hauled from Liberal, and
from an inspection of - same, it
would indicate another "real" rig
and test for this territory.
The Opportunity of the State of Kansas
is Seward County
Skaer & Skaer Rig No. 1 Located on SWVi of
SWK, Sec. 6, Twp. 34, R. 33; 5 miles north and
1 mile west of Liberal. This location is on a good
block of leases but no drilling yet commenced.
And its "going concern". It will continue going. We are practically as
sured a big gas field and things look mighty good for an oil field
but our land sells itself on its merits. There's nothing in Kansas for the
money equal to it. Buyers say so. You will say so when you investigate.
