ee la to the effect that five employe
work now wall If there was no open

and no distribution of the paper one
man could do the work. This would
mean that eight could enjoy Runday,
requiring a man to work on Sunday
It Is said that laat Sunday the em

weri 116 that called from town and

The Home OH and Gaa Co., w hich la
drilling In a well at Stone, held Its
annual stockholders meeting In this
city Wednesdsy sfternoon. In the sam
ple room at the Electric hotel. Report
was msde of the condition of the well
now being drilled In snd the general
condition of the bustneas of the com
pany. The following officers were
chosen: , ,
Ireslilent. U D. Mum power; vice
president, Henry 8tade; secretary. C.

aa followa: L. D. Mumpower, Henry
Stade, (leo. Vlerhus, I-nula Vlerbus, J.
(1. Mumpower, J. W. Watts and J. J.
A rcHOlutlon was passed Instructing
the officers to go ahead and drill until
oil In paying quantities Is found or
tbe well reaches a depth of 2500 feet.
Tha present expert drillers were
present , at the meeting and gave a
flattering report aa to prospecta. They
think' the oil la here and that they are
almost certain to find It. They report
ed that there waa a continued flow of
gna for the past 100 feet In depth,
with some little tracings of oil. Indi
es! lona, they aay, could not be better.
These men have had experience In the
East and In th California oil fields
A geologist from the East, who
when In college aome 15 years ago waa
considered considerable of an expert,
has made a casusl analysis of the
atone taken out of th well at a depth
of 1250 feet. II aays that it Is a lime
rock formation with crystallxed flint
running through Its texture. Thla Is
the UHuat cap formation that Immedi
ately precedes the finding of oil and
la the usual covering of an oil pool or
oil bolt. The formation Indicates that
there waa oil used In Ha structure by
nature and If the deduction Is true
then there must have been oil there

CITY DRUQ STORC
In sufficient quantity to have made
the formation possible, to say the
lat. Ho la of opinion that this stone
must com from a covering to an oil
pool, but aa to whether or not It will
be found In paying-quantity remains
to t seen. '
The drill still continues to stir tip
gas and oil and the bucket brings up
oil all the time and th stirring up of
the wster permits the gas to rise In
quantities sufficient to light.
The drillers will continue to go
down with the present site hole as
long a th present stone formation
doea not permit the well to cava In.
If th well begins to cave In It will
be necessary to reduce the aiz of th
casing to protect th well, or if gaa
or oil are found in sufficient quanti
ties so that it is wise to shut out the
wster then tb casing will need to be
reduced in alt-. .-
The onglnalfVnter made a mistake
In starting the well so small, and that
error In a measure handlcapa tbe pres
ent drillers, but things muat be taken
as they are, and not aa they ahould be,
and the directors feel warranted in go
ing on even In the face of the fact
that better conditions might have at
tained had the first drillers been wise
to conditions in this western field.
It Is certain, say the directors, that
signs the past 300 feet have been very
encouraging, and the meeting of stock
holders Wednesday was one of con

ITS GOOD WORK DRIFTS TO
SHORT ADDRESS ON 8UN.
President W. L. Ferrin, of Pacific
University, spoke at the High school
Forum Wednesday. He said that he
had no Intention of talking concerning
the University but at Prof. Tooie in
vitation would say a few words.
Graduation commencement doe
not mean that you are through for you
are Just ready to begin. And with
this In mind the schools are all tha
time raising the standard, which I
wise. Thla is seen when on stops to
consider that the leaders In this Ufa
are educated men. One per cent of
the -populace graduates, yet 75 per
cent of the leaders of men are gradu
atea. ' '
From the talk concerning hla college
Mr. Ferrin shifted to an address con
cerning the sun and its characteristics.
He told of its mammoth size, not in
abstract " figures but In comparisons
that he knew would have something to
Interest the young people. He told of
Its heat and the part it played, of ita
size and one'a Inability to thoroughly
comprehend, of Ita life-giving power
and how we all must have of this, of
Its distance, the control It exerts on us
and the Universe and of the one great
center th Creator.
While there wer aome things that
parbaps tha young people will need
to grow to In his address, yet th High
