Scott, who is superintending the oil well work and doing the prospecting in the BeelfootLake section, was in the city Tuesday. He was looking after some business matters connected with the work, and reports the progress made thus far very satisfactory to his com pany, which is composed of, it is said, Pennsylvania capitalists. Mr. Scott says that when the well had gone to a depth of nearly 600 feet a strata of fine coal was struck and the vein proved to be between 17 and 20 feet thick. Mr. Scott was without his book of measurements and could not give the exact thickness, but said the specimen was as good quality as he had ever seen. Oil or no oil, this coal vein alone shows the mineral deposit in that region very valuable. For Cuts and Sores. Farris' Healing Remedy comes in concentrated form. To it you add a pint of linseed oil, if you want a heal ing oil, or a pound of lard or vaseline if you want a salve. We guarantee that this makes you a full pint of bet ter healing medicine than anything you ever used no matter what the price. Why should you pay medicine prices for simple oil or lard or vaseline?

Farmers in the river bottoms above Hickman are greatly alarmed by the river stage, and fear that the water will again inundate their farms, which will make four times this year. This is the only section in this vicinity not protected by govern ment levee, and is very low land, and the stage of 39 feet, which is predicted, with possibly more, will cover much of the corn. This section will have another meet ing of residents to-morrow regarding a government levee, submitting the prop osition later to the government aud ask ing for aid. The high water was over this section in January, April and June. Should the river reach the flood stage it will alsogetout on the Missouri shore and do great damage, as all of the sec tion below Hickman on that side is un protected. If you sit in a cool draft when you are heated and get a stiff neck or lame back, you will be looking for something that will ease the pain. Fix your mind on BALLARD'S SNOW LINIMENT and don't be talked out of it, because it is the best pain relieving liniment you I can get anywhere. Price 25c, 50c and $1.00 per bottle.
