A Punctured Oil Boom.
Last Friday an oil promoter of
the boldest type struck Port Gib
There have been promoters
here before and they carried off
much innocent money, and others
and others still will do likewise,
but none before this - last one had
the boldness to tell us that oil had
been bored for and found right at
our door without our knowledge.
He declared that oil had been
struck at a depth of 250 feet
C. B. Allen's place, just across
Big Black, and to prove his
tion he carried a bottle of the c» ude
product to show the unbelieving,
should there be any so foolish. It
isn't difficult, however, to make
people believe oil stories, even to
<lie extent t liai it glows on trees,
aud in a very short time excite
ment was running high. Whether
the promoter, T. P. Thompson he
called himself, took order for "a
limited amonnt of stock," or
whether he boosted oil stock just
for the fun'of the thing is not
known—nor will it ever be.
Late in the afternoon the oil
market broke. The magnet fell
into the hands ot the law. He is
now at the Oakley state farm,
where, as W, B. Smith, he is serv
ing a two year sentence for* forg
ery, and from which place he re
cently escaped. *
Barlow Sale is Consummated.
The sale of 5,500 acres of land,
belonging to Dr. H. H. Barlow, to
Mr. M. B. Falle, has been consum
mated, and the deed Is of record.
The property in question In
cludes the home of Dr. Barlow at
Barlow, and all that lies contigu
ous. The price paid was $5 50 per
Mr. Falle is a large land owner,
having land in Texas and other
states. It is significant that a man
so well posted on land values all
over America should select Copiah
county as a good opening to make
a large invertment. His judgment
coincides with that of ail well in
formed men, that lands in this sec
tion are bound to advance. A
bright era seems to be dawning for
our vicinity. The eyes of North
ern and Eastern investors are
turned this way. In fact, it is well
known that the only available
cheap lands lie in the South.
Capt. Tucker, general manager
for Mr. Falle, will have general
supervision over the property ac
quired in Copiah county, and we
understand that Mr. A. B. Weeks
will be named as local manager. ,
