In tendering this, our prospec tus, we wish to avoid flowery, F deceptive language, and to set - forth in detail a few simple, plain facts, briefly stating what we hale done, where we have opera ted and what we pil)rpose to do. The Prairie Mamon Oil & Min eral Co. L't'd, domiciled at Jen nings, Calcasieu paxrissh, La. is a duly organized and chartered company, capitalized at 8200,000. Captain D. E. Sweet, .president of the Jennings Banking & Trust Co., a man of unquestionable in tegrity and pro,inounccd busi ness success, is pre.sideult of this company. From the organiz:tiizo olf this Company it has been the purpose to select small plot; 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 flackberry 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 feturl'e character izing this well,which lies thirteen miles southeast of Sulphu r Mines is, that before the da.y when sul phur was extracted by heat a spring at Hackberry flowed very ,cold water,vwhich today is almost as hot as hot coffee. We also purchased five acres near the Vinton wells whlich have struck several stratus of oil, published to the world. THE So - _HERN 01 COM PNYm. Will begin driil:.g at oice on our 100-acre tract a.djoining the Jennings wel. Pipe and machinery are here.

Second.- F-Oinding unparalleIe gas and oil indications on Bayou SBlue, about fifteen miles north of .Jennings, we purchased Bayou SL!ue Springs, covering a hill of i about tivearcres on Bayou Blue. We also have forty acres three miles north of the Jennings Oil I Well, where gas and oil abound and upon which it was at first i intended to sink a well. But the climax was struck when after mu 1i labor and time had been Sspent, ANSSE A. LA BU'1TE, 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 I the Mlermentau river, giving ): easy and cheap necess to an out let to market. SThis is -where the Prairie n iamou Oil & Mineral Co., L't'd d will w ilhin the next 30 days be- t Sgin to sink a well with the prom ise in advance of a gusher. It is ! about one-fourthof a mile south fit east of tihe noted gushing well of the Jennings Oil Co. n We intend to bore our second well on Bayou Blue. We have >f leases upon several hundred acres of lands on which we would r_ bore in event others see fit to n develop any adjacent thereto and meet success. Cs The Company will offer 50,000 1- shares for sale at 50 cents per a share for a short time. Par val . ue of shares one dollar each. We wt would much prefer to sell these shares to home people.
