Oil Well to Start
The outfit for drilling the first well
in the new Mustang oil field started
south this week and the work of drill
ing will begin sometime during next

For the past week the Clay creek
galleries have been supplying all the
water needed to supply the city and
flush the mains so as to carry off
every vestige of the alkali surface
water that has been pumped in the

up considerable surplus in the big city
reservoir. There has been a run of
190 gallons per minute from the gal
leries and under the present conditions
the city gets it all. With a continua
tion of normal conditions it will not
be necessary to develop a very large
extra supply of water, and that only
for about four months.

The Old Reliable
onstrated by a look backward to when
Lamar was started. The city will be
only 28 years old on Sunday and yet
of those who were present at that
memorable lot sale which was consid
ered the birth of Lamar, only George
W. Hunter is now a resident here.
J. A. McDowell and family, M. J. Me-
Millin, J. C. Ford, Wm. Dargie, A. N.
Parrish, E. L. Koen and Henry Koen
had been residents of this vicinity for
several years and there are a few
others who had been in what is now
Prowers county previous to that date.
The entire population though at that
time could live in a single city block
now easily. If you cut the time to
between 27 and 28 years, however,
there are possibly one hundred people
still here who could qualify in the
list, too many at any rate to attempt
I to give an accurate list.
Game Between Militia and Postoffice
Telephone Combine a Warm One
On Sunday a large crowd turned
out to see the Militia and P. 0.-T. &
T. teams met on the diamond at As
sociation park. For about four in
nings it was a real ball game, and
gave promise of being too good to be
funny. The pitchers weakened then
however and things began to happen.
From then on it was a real enjoyable
event giving a good laugh to the
friends of both teams. They tied at
12 runs each in the 6th inning and on
14 in the seventh. Both were white
washed in the eighth. The ninth
opened with the militia at the bat and
they promptly batted out two runs.
The postoffice and telephone boys not
to be outdone came right back and
when their smoke lifted they were
found to have put four runs across
the plate and were declared the win
