: '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
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.

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
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.
