The secretary of the Clarno Oil
Basin company writes The Times
that the date for the "spudding in"

at which time it is expected all who
are interested in the venture will .be
present, along with many of their
friends. The ceremony of beginning
drilling will take place at 1:00 p. m.
The machinery will have been set
by the above date. The complete
equipment is capable of drilling a
hole four thousand feet deep. As
suming that geologists who have ex

oil should be encountered at a depth
of 1,200 to 1,600 feet The com

no field. The oil which has been
extracted from the Clarno shale is
said to be of fine texture and color

The Farm Market Review, sent
out by the Extension department of

Although weather conditions . last
