( A STATEMENT The unfortunately burning of the derricks belonging to the Snyder Oil Association has caused many to want to know about the matter and they baVe a right to know, hence the board bf directors wish to submit the following statement; Early in the evening of December, 15th this derrick was burned. , Juat the cause has not been lr termlned and we can not give any statement on that point. This burn ing was thoroughly investigated by County Officials and we respectfully refer all Interested to them for ln formation. The lows in llio fire amounted to an actual cost to us or $5502,01. It would cost more than that amount to replace the lost material at present prices and undcV present con dit ions. We have left and in good shape $12206.62 worth of equip ment We have a good water well and think the work done on iha nut noil u-ill ) Intnrt fn.- Koine " .. . . . ' tlme and ,lkely he aVttlla,,,e ' ' we are able t0 resume work- Snyder means considerable as it will en F(M., able us to start work quickly when reaay ana munv guuu piun-n I ii I- ilia mirniHO nf the directors 1. . .V ... . J"' - to carry the matter back to the. stock holders and have a meeting In Jan,, 1920 nnd ask 'them wha't to do. We feel that this would make us the mo'.o determined to put th'.s , well down. If we can raise some money to replace this loss we can soon have a test well. That this matter has been slow we confess, but you who have never had to deal with Hitch things can not realize the handicap we have had. Shortage of material, scarcity of labor and ex treme high price of labor and bad weather has made It almost Im possible for us to do any thing. Wo ! still believe in the project and feel that too much money has been spent to let this drop. If our people will jback us and help us raise the money . . U I we will pusli tuts matter iiiruumi. It would likely take some time to e-e.uip the plant but with spring weather we can accomplish much more we can push this thinR over the top. We want all Interested to give this serious consideration and when we call a meeting be ready to help put the deal over Directors of The Snyder Oil Assn. J. M. Doak and family while goini? home In ther car one nlht this week had a head on collision with a car dVlven by a young man.

For several years these meat seVvlce monoplists have taken on subsidi ary enterprises until they have come to control all kind of meat supplies besides canned goods, breakrast foods fruits, soap, perfumes and practically every line of eatables. They have controled t Me retail deal er, the stock yard m. refrigerator cars, and the people have had to pay I the freight.

J CTiOSIXfl THE OLD ROOK OPENING THE NEW This is the last issue of the Sig nal for 1919. None of us have done any fcVeat things during the year. but we have stood our ground and are ready to buckle down to another season of effort. From a material standpoint wd made no great advancement, but ns a rule the people are vastly more able than a year ago, to do things and we pVedict a growing period during the next twelve months. One encouraging feature due to abun dant crops, Is that most of our peo ple who moved away are coming buck and many new settlers are coming Into our midst to live. The difficulties under which the people have labored, due to the re- . cent war have hindered progress. High cost of living has made It necessary for the public .to go flow on expense and this same fact has caused the merchants to sound tho water before plunging into heavy outlay for stocks of goods, but gradually we will become acustomed to new conditions and uniform price levels will be accepted. The Signal believes that 1920 will be a year of prosperity and matt'im! progress nnd It plans to rise with the occasion with Improved facili ties to fully represent the publicity I r function of our social and industrial compact. The Signal appreciates the sup port and confidence of the people of Scurry County. It rejoices with th people in their gladness and sympa thizes wiili I hem in thciV times of sorrow. The Signal is prouil of the !iigh standards of the peoplu In mor als ami Intellectual advancement and will ever strivti to aid in the promotion o" harmony and co-operation of all the people and now, us the old year passes and the new year comes full of hope and renew ed animation, the Kignal wishes all the people a senson of happy and prosperous living and that we- may stand shoulder to shoulder as one people a united people for the mu tual advancement in (he achieve ment of greatcV things and that Scurry ounty may continue to rank first as the home of an honest. In dusrous, peace-loving people. Knight-Green Mr. J. A. Knight and Miss Ltda Green, two popular young people of the Camp Springs district were mar- I riet' last Sunday at the home of Mr. J. S.
