While Boring for Oil Mr. F. Arceneaux n Strikes a Very Strong Flow of b Water. u Sfi Francois Arceneaux, while tloring 1: for oil on his place four miles east of Carencro,'Saturday struck a strong t] flow of water, at a depth of forty feet, fi with sufficient gas pressure to throw , r the water between fifteen and. twenty f, - feet high. Deputy Sheriff Saul Broussard visited- Carencro Sunday I and went out to the well. He states t that the water which is clear and good f e for drinking, is still flowing but as Sends only about nine or ten inches d above ground. Gas 'is present all -t around the well, and when the well t was covered the pressure was consid- t erable. The presence of the gas ;leads to a strong belief that there is oil in pay- o ing quantities in that locality and perhaps sufficient gas to prove of val ue. _ Famous Case Decided.
