Charles N. Gould, formerly directori
of the Oklahoma Geological survey.
He expressed the belief that southeastern
Oklahoma is as rich in these
deposits as the northeastern part, already
developed, and that it has been
merely accidental that, the development
has proceeded along the line that
it has.
"The probable oil field in Oklahoma,"
says prof. Gould, "coincides very
closely with the coal field. It will be
noted that the greater number of pro-i
ductlve areas lie in the northeastern
part of the state. This is largely due
to the fact that development began at
the Kansas line and has moved southward,
slowly and methodically. The
first wells were drilled along the 96th
nieridan and in the shallow field, so
called, further northeast. At the
present time the development has pro-'

What the
$175 INVESTMENT IN OIL SETS!
$83,000.
Oklahoma City. Okla., .April 15?
Oklahoma oil is today the source of I
the greatest natural wealth the world
has ever known. With the price of oil
Jumping almost weekly, it reached the j
highest figure in history a few days
' 11 ?. 'tl ?i hfifrol
ago wiien ii. weni iu vj.im fv
and the world looks upon Oklahoma
in breathless awe and amazement.
With oil at only 10 cents a barrel
for the first six months in 3915, there
were 5,799 wells drilled in the state's
105 different fields during the. year.
Out of this number only 15 per rent
failed to produce oil or gas. The 123,000,000
barrels produced would at
present prices be worth almost $200,000,000.
Throughout the oil field are wonderful
examples of fame and fortune:
gained at the gush of oil. A dozen
names arc familiarly known as the oil
kings and rank among the multi-millionaires.
but everywhere there are
rich, wealthy and well-to-do, thousands
of thom. who have made It by
wise investments in oil.
HUGE OIL DEAL BY LOCAL MAN \
E. T. Richards, of this city, has sold'
210 acres of his oil land in the Heald-I
ton field to the Cosden Intorests for
$650,000.
He could have secured $75,000 more
for the 21ft acres after the parties
had purchased an option on the prop- j
ertv and before the deal was closed.
Ho has realized more than a million
dollars from this property including
the royalties and the sale prior. The
royalties at the time of the sale'
amounted to $35,000 a month. Mr. i
Richards estimates that if conditions
in the oil business remain as pood as !
they are now the purchasers will have
their money hark within three years.
Mr. Richards purchased this land in
1903. paying $10 and $12.50OKLAHOMA

I SPECTACULAR PROFITS I.N THE
OIL FIELDS.
The oil districts have fairly gone
1 mad bocausc of the numbor of new
wells that have come In. and the nrice
the product brings. Down at Tulsa,
Oklahoma, no one mentions a sum less
than $1,000,000. The lobbies of the
hotels there arc said to resomblc New
York's curb market in Its maddest
i moments.
"I know one man." said a banker,
I "who was just a well driller a little
while ago. Didn't have anything but
a kit of tools and some oil-soaked
clothes. Now ho is worth between
_ 54,000,000 and $5,000,000. The worst
of it Is that $1,500,000 of this is In
cash, lie doesn't know what to do
with it. As fast as he decides on one
investment some one comes along
with a better investment, and he
changes his ntind. The responsibility
is making an old man of him."
Ill one little UKianoma town a group
of pikers put $171 each la an oil veni
tare- There were twelve or them
and the flotation of the company was
postponed several times because this
man or that could not get the required
ante. Some of them borrowed
their stake in lumps. The other
day the company sold Kb holdings
for $1,000,010 net, cold cash. A boarding
house keeper took stock because
she could not collect her cash for the
' beans she had purveyed to a drilling
crew. She left for her old home with
money enough to buy the city hall in
her .New England village. One man
traded a $50 horse for stock that netted
hint $20,1)00. The air is full of
stories of this sort. The lead and
zinc mining districts are making quite
as much money as tho oil country.

leads the United States
in the production of petroleum. Xo
one knows how much oil there Is in
the state. The government figures
j show that up till the close of 1913. Oklahoma
had produced 301,912.234 barrels
of oil and that during 1914 the
production was about 98,000,000 barrels.
During the first 200 days of
1915 the production from the wells in
Oklahoma averaged about 350,000 barrels
of oil per day, or about 70,000,000
: barrels. In other words, Oklahoma has
already produced 500,000,000 barrels
of oil.

well in waste buckets is flowing out
from the plugged hole a distance of a

man said to the preacher. "I'll give
you $500 bonus on your land it you
