L. Johnson, chiey driller for the Charleston oil well, reports the well down down on Thursday, 2875 feet and everything working fine. The water supply for their en gine boiler is furnished by a small creek, and on Wednesday the water supply temporarily gave out and caused a shut-down for the one day. However local showers came that e vening and the creek flushed up con siderably, and Mr. Johnson now be lieves there will be plenty water for several days’ run. On account of the extremely hard shale formation and depth i f the well at 2730 feet the hole was reduced from 12 inches to 8 inches, and after reducing the size of the hole the bit had no trouble in going through the hard shale (about 40 feet), then they went into a flaky shale with streaks j of chalk at 2785 feet and at last re port (2875 feet) were still in the I same flaky shale formation, but it was beginning to become more or less sticky, although still soft. The Winona Oil Well— Drilling at the Winona oil well is progressing in fine ^hape, working both day and night. The well is now, down about 1200 feet and reports in dicate that the formations encounter ed so far correspond with the top for mations of the Charleston well. In 10 days or two weeks this well should be down deep enough to get real in teresting.

SUDDEN DEATH OF STATE TREASURER ROGERS Funeral services of Dr. L. S. Rog ers, state treasurer, who died very suddenly in his office in Jackson, Thursday afternoon, were conducted at West today. His death came as a surprise to his many friends and admirers all over the state. He was instrumental in the found ing df the Mississippi Svate 'ChUritj Hospital in Jackson and served as it head for four years. He was elected state treasurer last year by a hand some majority. His home town, West, owes much of its prosperity to Rr Rogers’ efforts, he having been in strumental in the forming of the creamery and many other enterprises in that town. He leaves a wife and three sons to mourn his loss. The funeral was at tended by many people from the sur rounding towns and counties and a number of friends from Jackson. DRILLING FOR OIL IN MONTGOMERY CO. •\ Began Thursday "bf Last V. eek and Are Now About 500 Feet—Some Trouble Encountered, But Was Overcome in Short Time. On Thursday afternoon of last week the Preston Oil Company began drilling. This being the first test ever made in this county for oil. At 273 feet they struck cuiek sand and the bit stuck. It became nec essary to run down 8 inch casing with a clamp shoe over the six inch drill stem and after several hours of de lay the trouble was overcome and since that time the drill has been con tinously going down. The work is going on day and night. At this writ • ng they are drilling at about 600 feet. An accurate log is being kept of the well showing ail sands encoun tered so should the well prove to be a dry hole the information obtained may be used as a guide for further operations in this territory. The drill ing of this well might be termed a 1000 to 1 shot, and while hoping oil will be discovered and a producing oil field will be developed in Mont gomery county, we should not per mit our hopes to exceed reason nor I discourage other companies from coming into this territory. We feel that every one will agree with us when we make the statement that an effort should be made to secure the drilling of wells in the various I sections of the county. When oil companies first sent rep j resentatives into this county to se | cure leases, the Times advised the ' people to give them 5 year leases, | feeling that this would prove to be ! to the interest of the people. Ws i feel now as we did then and every ! company that is soliciting leases for the purpose of putting down a well should receive the co-operation «of those who have not leased by leasifig yous land.—Winona Times.
