Columbus demanded fresher news than a weekly could contain. But the real reason was Ihe de mand for a daily covering tho local and Associated Press field. The llvn merchant asked fir it, advertised in It and havo shqwn their appre ciation In many way4,, The management of the Dally Courier makes no claim to being the iwvcnth on of a seventh daughter and the halo of clalrvoyansy which appear to Iho uninitiated may be summed up in a few words, "The . icrseectlvo of a trained worker." Only a few month ago the presenl editor of the Dally Courier visited Columbus, saw the opportunity for r DAILY newspaper, and Ihe col umns of the Ihinf Issue of the Weekly Courier bear witness to the statement that a dally newspaper would soon be issued. Owing to the ctamped quarters, it wastai impossi bility at that time. As soon a Ihe present building was secured the dally was started, Tho dally was a success. It Is a surces today.

Since the oil strike in Ihe Florida well there is no doubt of tho pres ence of oil In tho Mlmhrcs Valley; Mow much remains to bo seen, There is enough, howevrr, to bring on an "oil boom." Beginning altout eight years ago, Mlmbrr Valley has been the Mecca of mysterious "oil scouts" who were attracted, at pearly a can Ims learned, by Infnr mat Ion that "leaked out" uf confi dential reports. Curious maps have been displayed that trace an oil "lead" from the Oklahoma-Kansas fields through Texas, eastern and southern New Mexico lo Iho Tarn pirn fields of Mexico.
