OLD HISTORY RECALLED
PRATUM. April 25 Twenty
years ago last fal lseveral men
who claimed to know a lot about
oil and oil wells leased a consid
erable quantity of land In this
neighborhood for the right to drill
for oil on a percentage basis.
What was to be the first well was
sunk about 60 rods west of Pra
tum. An oil well derrick was
erected, powerful machinery was
installed, and a lot of stock was
sold, but drilling went slowly,
probably to give more time to sell
For the same reason It Is sup
posed that some one poured in
some kerosene or gasoline at va
rious times to keep up the excite
ment which was runnin ghigh at
that time, but when finally stock
would not sell any more, work
ceased at the well and finally to
taly abandoned. 1
Later the machinery was re
moved, the derrick taken down
and no more attempt-was made to
drill for oil since, and no one
