PI~OSPECTUS. tlendering this, our prospec we wish to avoid flowery, ptive language, and to set _rth-in detail a few simple, plain ets, briefly stating what we e done, where we have opera nd and what we propose to do. : 'The Prairie Mamou Oil & Min o:ý:ral Co. L't'd, domiciled at Jen "n.ings, Calcasieu parish, La. is a : ly organized and chartered company, capitalized at $200,000. Captain D. E. Sweet, president of the Jennings Banking & Trust Co., a man of unquestionable in tegrity and pronounced busi ness success, is president of this company. From the organization of this Company it has been the purpose to select small plots of really oil lands throughout the oil belt of 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 chlaracter izing this well,which lies thirteen Fmil. southeast of Sulph u r Mines is, that before the duy when sul phur was extracted by heat a spring at Hacckberry flowed very cold water,which tOlay is ahnlmost -...as hot as hot ctffee. We also purchased five acres near the Vinton wells which have struck several stratas of oil, published to the world. THE SOUTHERN OIL COMP'NY.

Second.--inding unparalleled gas and oil indications on Bayou Blue, about fifteen miles north of Jennings, we purchased Bayou Blue Springs, covering a hill of about five arcres on Bayou Blue. We also have forty acres three miles nortli 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 Topin every 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 M amou Oil & Mineral Co., L't'd will within the next 30 days be gin to sink a well wihh the prom ise in advance of a gusher. It is about one-fourth of a mile south f east of the noted gushing well of the Jennings Oil Co. We intend to bore our second well on Bayou Blue. We have leases upon several hundred acres of lands on which we would bore in event others see fit to 1 develop any adjacent thereto and meet success. The Company will offer 50,000 - shares for sale at 50 cents per share for a short time. Par val ue of shares one dollar each. We would much )prefer to sell these shares to home people.
