In tendering this, ourjprospec- of
tus, we wish to avoid flowery, B
deceplive language, and to set
forth in detail a few simple, plain
facts, briefly stating what we
hae e done, where we have opera
ted and what we propose to do.
The Prairie Mamou Oil & min- ai
eril Co. L't'd, domiciled at Jen
nings, Calcasieu parish, La. is a
duly organized and chartered
comnpany, capitalized at $200;000. s
Cap~ain D. E. Sweet, president
of the Jennings Banking & Trust
Co., a man of unquestionable in
tegrity and pronounced busi- s
ness success, is president of this
From the organization of this
Company it has beenthe purpose
to select small plots of really oil
lands throughout the oil belt of E
Calcasieu parish, ignoring in a
measure large bodies of indiffer
ent lands without promise, upon
which leases could be procured
.at nominal figures. Following
up this idea they have purchased,
First.-'Twenty acres near the
Hackberry well that is full of"
promise, the well being down
near 1,000 feet, with every indi
cation of success. The stock of
this well is now at par value.
A peculiar feature character
izing this well,which lies thirteen
miles southeast of Sulphur Mines
is, that before the day when sul
phur was extracted by heat a
spring at Hackberry flowed very
cold water,which today is almost
as hot as hot c,,ffee. We alsoi
purchased five acres near the
Vinton wells which have struck
several stratas of oil, published
to the world.
OIL COMP'N Y.
Will begin drilling at once on our 100-acre t
tract adjoining the Jennings well. Pipe and R
machinery are here. C E Jones, an experi
enced driller, who has brought in four gush- a
ers on the Beaumont Spindletop, has con- i
tracted to put down two wells for us.
The Company has a fine large list of holdings, consisting of 50ti t
acres at differentpoints near and adjoining the Jennings well. The r
Mamou Prairie tracts owned by the company is one of the best in
that splendid field.
Work will commence on this tract very shortly and investors 0
will do well to secute stock before an advance is made. t
15,000 Shares Only of a par value of
$1 Will be Sold at 50c Each.
They are going rapidly and the issue will soon be sold. The
ofticers of the company will assure the most careful management.

Blue Springs, covering a hill of
about five grcres on Bayou Blue.
We also have forty acreg three
miles north of the Jennings Oil
Well, where gas and oil abound
and upon which it was at first
intended to sink a well. But the
climax was struck when after
much labor and time had been
spent, ANSSE A. LA BU'ITE,the
SPINDLE TOP of MamouPrairie
was secured, and this is a real
Spindle Topinevery sense. This
six acres lies within a mile of
Bayou Cane, tributary of Mer
mentau river and just north of
Mermentau station where the
Southern Pacific railway crosses
the Mermentau river, giving
f easy and cheap access to an out
let to market.
This is where the Prairie
Mamon Oil & Mineral Co., L't'd
will within the next 30 days be
gin to sink a well with the prom
ise in advance of a gusher. It is
about one-fourth of a mile south
east of the noted gushing well of
the Jennings Oil Co.
We intend to bore our second
Swell on Bayou Blue. We have
