"Sitting on the Top of the World" I
A NOTED geologist made the above remark when
J speaking of the Clamo Basin oil prospects to an
official of the Clarno Basin Oil Company a short
time ago at The Dalles. He referred particularly to
the prospects of striking oil in the well now being put
down by the company at Clarno.
That geologist further stated that the formation
of the Clarno field is a sure indication that oil under
lies and is apt to be found at a depth of approxi
mately 1200 feet.
The author of the above is one of the most suc
cessful mining and oil engineers in the world in locat
ing, drilling and bringing in oil wells all over the U.
S. His name may be learned by request of any stock
holder or officer of the Clarno Basin Oil Company.
The well at Clarno is down 425 feet. The drill is
in a "red bed," which invariably overlies oil bearing
strata. When that bed is penetrated, look out for oil.
This advertisment is but a pointer to those of our peo
ple who desire to sit with other stockholders of the oil
company "on top of the world." If interested confer
with the Clarno Basin Oil Company officials and learn
about their chances for bringing in a well.
