In tendering this, our prospec
tus, we wish to avoid flowery,
deceptive language, and to set
forth in detail a few simple, plain
facts, briefly stating what we
hae done, where we have opera
ted and what we propose to do.
The Prairie Mamou Oil & Min
eral Co. L't'd, domiciled at Jen
nings, Calcasieu parish, La. is a
duly 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 ch,,racter
izing this well, which lies thirteen
miles southeast of Sulphur Mines
is, that before the day when sul
phulr was extracted by heat a
spring at Uocnkberry flowed very
cold water, which toaay is almost
ms hot, as hot c' flee. We also
puirchased five acres near the
Vinclt wella which have struck
several stratas f of il, published
to thel, world.

Second. -Finding u.paralleled
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 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, ANSSF A. LA BUITE, the
SPINDLE TOP of Mamou Prairie
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
Mcrmentau station where the
Southern Pacific railway crosses
the Mermentau river, giving
easy and cheap access to an out
let to market.
This is where the Prairie
Mamou 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-fourthofa mile south
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
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

would much prefer to sell these
shares to home people.

Adam Smith a False Prophet.
One curious and wholly unexpected
result of the Spanish-American war is
that since she lost her colonies Spain
has begun to develop her mercantile
marine in quite a remarkable manner,
the capital which formerly found an
outlet in the colonies now seeking em
ployment in shipping, says an English
magazine. And this new development
on the part of Spain hardly accords
with Adam Smith's general principle
that industries flourish greatly in time
of war and decline on the return of
New Type of Warcraft.
A repair ship, the Assistance, has
been constructed for the British ad
miralty. This vessel is a new type
of warcraft, and in reality consists of
a floating workshop for the undertak
ing of those repairs to battleships
while at sea which do not necessitate
a visit to the drydock. The Assistance
is 436 feet in length by 53 feet beam
and has a displacement of 9.600 tons.
Her engines are of 4,200 horse-power
and she has a speed of tairteen knots
per hour. She is to be attached to
the Mediterranean fleet.
A Veteran 0 overnor.
Alexander Ramsey, who became the
first governor of Minnesota territory
June 1, 1849, celebrated his birthday
recently. His friends say "he holds the
blue ribbon as the first governor now
surviving." The veteran said to an
acquaintance who congratulated him:
"I'm probably 87 years old, as you say,
for almanacs don't lie, except about
the weather and the patent medicines.
But I hardly feel the 80, though I'm
free to confess to the 7."

is a good deal of competition to-tday
from California to Oregon. but owing
to :he mild climate the seeds from the
Pacific coast are not so hardy as those
from Colorado. and will not stand the

Torpedo Boats and Steam.
Contrary to the general belief the
engines of torpedo boats are not at all
extravagant in the use of steam, but
approach high economy, considering
that they are driven regardless of cost,
the sole view being to get the highest
possible piston speed in the shortest
tim^ with forced draft of greatest in
tensity. The coal burned per initial
horse power in the case of one boat
recently constructed was only 1.88
pounds per u' ur, with a consumption
of sixty-eight pounds pcr square foot
of gas.-Chicago News.
Ten Years' Advance in Steamships.
The net result in respect of speed
is that while ten years ago the highest
sustained ocean speed was 20.7 knots
it is now 23.51 knots; the highest speed
for large warships was 22 knots, and
is now 23 knots on a trial of double
the duration of those of ten years ago;
the maximum speed attained by any
craft was 25 knots, as compared with
36.581 knots now; while the number
of ships of over 20 knots was eight in
1891, and is fifty-eight now.-Engineer

The pipe is ninety miles in length and
ten inches diameter. The initial pros
sure at the wells is about 350 pounds,
and the discharge pressure is from ten
pounds to fifty pounds. With this drop
the pipe delivers about 10,000,000 cubic
feet of gas per twenty-four hours.

Contagion About a Pin.
The swallowing of a pin is less to
be dreaded than the contagion that
may lurk about the pin. Under its

to the mouth, from there soon infect
the whole body, thus causing illness,
or perhaps even death.-Chicago News.
