IHSsi fWS VOLUME XX1I1 COLUMBIA, KENTUCKY, WEDNESDAY July 28 1920. NUMBER 40 rr OIL NEWS. BVT E T. KKMPKB- The J. E. Carnahan Oil Co.'s well at Zioa Church Is now down some, thing over 700 feet, a favorable forma tion has been encountered, and drill ing will be continued to a sufficient depth to thoroughly test the location. As soon as this well is completed the rig will be moved to ttfe Hemy In gram farm about one mile from town on the Russell Springs road, where rie next well will be drilled without delay. Representatives of the Associated Producers Association have been spending considerable time here late ly for the purpose of getting in close touch with local development and se curing all the possible information ob tainable at first hand. They hav given out very little information as to how they are pleased and what their intentions are, but I have every rea son to believe they are taking more than passing interest in what is go ing on here in oil circles, and I pre dict that they will spend a goodly sum of money in this territory. Mr. Elmo Pearce, the well-known ..operator of Blackweil, Ok'a., who was here sometime since temporarily, ad vises that ha is returning here at once to begin operations in this section, and he also expects to bring his family and locate In Columbia while he is developing this territory. The office equipment of the Palmer Oil & Gas Company has arrived from Cleveland, and they are now nicely domiciled in the Page Building, on Campbellsville street, where they have taken a lease, paying rentals a half year in advance Mr. Geo. A Palm er, the president of the Company, has been called to Cleveland on important business matters for a few days, and while away he will endeavor to hurry forward the shipment of their drilling rig from West Virginia The Palmer people are the kind we are glad to see locating in our midst, for they are ready and willing to do things, hey know the oil business thoroughly, and and in addition ro this they are reli able, and they express faith in this section proving to be a great field. Mr Frank Sweet, in charge of the Beacon Oil Syndicates drilling opera tions at Creelsboro, was in town the latter part of the week for the pur pose of getting certain supplies they have been very much in need of, that have been "sidetracked" here for sev eral days past, and he talked very en couragingly of general prospects and conditions in that section. The Bea con people have the drilling (Contracts for, the McMead Oil Company, and they are doing all in their power to rush the development'work as mujh as possible. Mr. Sweet while here gave a very favoroble report of the McMead Company wells on the Camp bell Bros farm. While lu Lebanon the latter part of the week, during a conversation with Mr. C. S. Harris, a former well-known citizen of Columbia, now located at West -Point, Miss., he informed me that they are on the verge of au oil boomin his local(ty,and that deep test drilling is about to be started within four or five mites of West Point. Dr J. W Goggin, vice-president and general manager of the Beacon Oil Syndicate, Chicago, accompanied by parties from Louisville and Chi cago, was here Sunday night and left early Monday for the Creelsboro field. The Beacon people own a good block of the stock of the McMead Oil Com pany and they are vitally interested la the development or the Company's tickings Dr Goggin i a "live wiie" in the oil business and he believes in doings things. The Lumber Business. The logging business in Adair coun ty is not dead by any means. Elsie Young keeps a'number of teams busy, hauling to his mill, and he has quite a number o! hands felling trees in the woods Guy Nell, who purchased a lot of timber land has been busy with three teams for the past two months hauling logs to the mills. N. M. Tutt has done a lot of sawing at his mill, in the Flat Woods, and other mills are busy in the county. Trees that were not merchantable twenty years ago are now sawed into first-class lumber. Some people may think that timber Is getting scarce in Adair, but mill men do not think so, as a new mill starts every few weeks. Messrs. Myers & Barger will be ready to start a saw in a short time.

A noted character of this town and county gave up the realities of this life last Saturday morning and passed beyond the veil ''Aunt Sally" Walk er, as she was familiarly called. She was born and reared near Mill town, this county, and for the past forty-five years, with the exception of a few months, she resided in Colum bia. Her first husband. Geo.M. Caldwell, died many years ago, and some years after his death she was married to Mr. W. L Walker, who was a well-known citizen of the county. He died about sixteen years or more ago. We have not the date of the deceas ed birth, but the county records show that she was married to her firsC hus band in 1846. Placing her at 18 when she married she was 92 years old when death came. She was a devout member of the Christian Church and was a very lib eral giving on all the ordinances of the organization She also helped young men who were preparing for the ministry, and was a constant do nator to the needs of the local church building, and she will be greatly miss ed hy the entire congregation, and the people of Columbia generally. The end came at the Jeffries' Hotel where she had boarded for a number of years, and where her friends ten derly administered to her every want. She was perfectly resigned to the in evitable, and told her friends that she did not want to live longer, The funeral was preached at the Christian Church Sunday afternoon by her pastor, Eld Z T. Williams, who paid high tribute to her life and character The interment was in the city cemetery. The floral offerings were many and beautiful. There is no doubt but she was ready for her Master's call and that she is now reaping the joys that has ,gpme to her for her well spent earthly life. She leaves one nephew, A. J.
