now distributing its first carload of
oil. Tbe oil is known to the trade as
No. 2 Kellog tops. Hind is purchased
in Log Angeles. Calif. It is guaranteed
to teat 43 to 45 distillate, . apd accord
ing to the company's hydrometer, the
present car tested 48. This oil is be
ing retailed in any size lots from a
gallon up at 3 1-3 cents per gallon,
a savins of about 7 cents over the cur
rent price. A car of cheaper oil Is
expected in any day now, running
from 38 to 40 degree gravity, which
will be sold by the association at about
a cent cheaper. This cheaper oil has
been tested out and found satisfactory
in the following engines: J. E. Dieu
donne, 12 horsepower Stover; Hugh
Ramsay. 10 horsepower Master Work
man; C L. Hubbard. 5 horsepower
Fairbanks- Morse, and P. J. Case, 40
horespower Western gas engine. It
is evident that almost any engine In
the valley can burn this cheaper
grade at an immense saving.
Luther Stevenson, secretary of the
association, predicts that the 38-40
distillate will be used more than the
higher grade oil. The directors of the
association are: John Bund.. Hugh '
Ramsay, Earl Van Sickle, Geo. W.
McCan and S. J. Smith.
One hundred barrels will arrive in
a day or two in which members of the
association will haul their oil from the
tanks to their farms. The company
has just completed the erection of a
12 by 16 office and loading platform.

steamer accompanied by his son. It
was very important that he get to
Carrisoso before court opened the next
morning. The road la of the deadly
kind, impassable at night except by a
man familiar with every crook and
turn in it. Ira Wetmore was the one
man in Tularosa who knew the road
perfectly and could travel it by night.
Realising the urgency of the matter,
Wetmore climbed into his car and
piloted the Indian agent across the
mountains and got him into Carrizozo
at 2 oclock in the morning He re
fused pay for the service and thought
nothing more of the matter, until he
pulled up to the Indian agent's office
near the San Carlos crossing on the
Gila just a few days ago. The agent
who greeted him was none other than
the Laussie whom he had piloted
across the mountains two years ago
As the San Carlos crossing on the

Indian policemen to see that Wetmora
