- - The Shadow ( n (Ircat Kock In the nencn i-nnu. Whilo so much excitement pre vails over the immense oil discov eries, people will rend anything which lms oil in it. The followim: contains some und is n letter writ ten to the Fort Worth Keirister, which we roproduco: "Hoforo viaitiut: Henumont the nvetace render has formed nn elab orate opinion of tho altitude of "Spindletop hospitality," the homo of tho oil Kiishers. Whoever conceived of the name for suoli a locality must have had a very vivid imnuinatiou to mnuufnctm n mountain out of a molo hill. If you can Hud a hill lnrRer than an ash-heap in all thnt part of tho country, it would rcquiro the Btroncest innnnif.vinj lenso and n wholesale ImnKination hb a vetj nwossnry ncconipnnimont. Ab a mutter of fnut tho Lucia wll is located in a very licht in dention from the surrouudiiiK coun try, while tho largely ndvertiwd "Spindletop UeiuliU" in in close proximity, where there may possi bly be tin elevation of five or six feet at tho most. Think of the public mind crnspiiiK after an op portunity to secure u safe foothold upon suoli lntty peaks in these ex citable times. Think of tho strtiK Kline multitudes wending their way across the.flattost country you ever , snw, for a distance of three and a half miles from Henumont, in ev ery kind of a vehicle, through a floud of dust, bound for "Spindle 'top HciRhtg!" When they get there they very nn'urally inquire for tho tnoiiu taiiH, and are informed t lint they hivo clnmbered to tho topmost craig, that they "must take heed lest they fall!" Are there any hardships too gront for man to undtirtuke if oil or gold is tho incentive! Thote who labor the linrdeit are those who command millions already, and the love of uecutnnltttiou incrcaiee at tho pile is RtiKineuted Aecuinn- biting becomes an occupation, ut i from necessity, but as a plensura- j bio tiastiiup, a joy that can only bo fed from this source. An ex citement of so much magnitude as is at present centered in the oil Ileitis, iMiralyies business in nil the towns in Texas, aud causes money to be taken from legitimate oliun uels, and placed, it may prove, in very risky investments. Xo doubt there will be many who woio on the ground onrly that will reap a rich harvest. The oil bolt has yet to be determined. Only a limited area has been proven as yet. That it will widen out and lengthen out in unexpected places is to be taken for granted. Well boring is ex pensive, costing 813,000 for 1500 feet in depth, or sometimes it is even more, which is quite n large amount to siuk, still there are many who are abundantly able to make these ventures. Looking at it from almost any point it would seem a valuable addition to the products of Texas. It will unquestionably add greatly to tho present popula tion and give the btate great manu facturing advantages because of tho oheap fuel question being solved. Pur iale.

It ir the ambition of the citizens of Ardmore to have this city the motropolis of the territory. To do this every citisen has n duty to perform by encouraging all branches of manufaeturing (a city without factories is dead) it does not matter how small a factory is it ought to be encouraged by every spirited citizen, nnd you can do this by patroniaiug home indus try aud have the pleasure of seeing a small factory, animated by the community, compelled to send to other states for more men. .Mr. P. Y. Graham hasoi-ened a cigar taetory, employing first-claDs men, manufacturing a fine grade of cigars, guaranteed to stand the criticism of the public.

The fi cent brawls: Ardmoreite, Canton, Exchange, So. 7, Peachev aud Lillie Pet. A few questions to be con sidered. 1. Do tho mnnufactuteres in other states pay our taxes to build our public institutions and inerease the valuation of property -. Are the citizens of the In dian Territory justified in en couraging eastern sweat 6hop made cigars or any other line of goods which could be manufac tured here! il. By domamliug home produc tiou will stimulate the manufac turers of other states to come here nnd start brnuoh factories, knowing the citiieus will demand their goods. 4. This territory must be the great manufacturing district of the southwest and it deiwuds on the citiieus for help by askiug for home production. Yours respectfully, P. Y.
