Jv&atr VOLUME XXIV COLUMBIA, KENTUCKY, WEDNESDAY DEC . 15, Stems 1920. NUMBER Smith-Col- lins OIL NEWS. BY E T. KEMPKI1 Weather conditions remain so favorable there is no let up in field work ,this territory, and great activity is mg witnessed on every side New faces are being constantly seen here among the oil fraternity, and inquiries for acreage and data on this section are coming from far and near. It has been thought that with the approach of the winter season interest would lag and that not much could be counted on until spring, but so far there is nothing whatever to warrant such a belief, and present indications are that development work will be pushed to the utmost right on through the winter months, This is as it should be, and means much to this section and the men who are devoting their best efforts to the developing of the territory. The most important happenings In local oil circles during the past week was the bringing in of two additional fine wells at Creelsboro. The Beacon F.

Just across Cumberland river on the Cyrus Campbell farm, the J. E Carnahan Oil Company, Canton, O., brought in their No. 1 at 330 feet, and reliable reports say it looks very promising. Some high estimates have been ventured as tojthe production of the wells, as well as others in that locality, but there is only one safe guide in these matters, and that is actual pumping tests, so until that time no one can say just what the wells will show. It is believed, however, that they are good ones and that there is a real pool 8f oil in that locality. Tne wells referred to in preceding items are located very near and in line with the old Gabbert well. This well was drilled some forty years ago to a depth of 225 feet, and tradition says it was "a great producer." What capacity it had is not really known, but it is known that there was sufficient oil to warrant the building of a refinery at the well' and that it was operated successfully for quite a period, Cumberland river boats being the means of transportation for the product. Mr. J. B. Doolittle, Worcester, New York, arrived Saturday to look after his drilling operations on the Geo. Powell farm, on Cedar Creek, near Joppa, seven miles out on the Jamestown road. Mr. Doolittle has one of the finest drilling rigs ever brought to Adair county, and it will be operated Oil Syndicate, Chicago, drilled in well No 2 on the farm of Campbell Broth- River Gas Company. These people are now supplying Campbellsville and Greensburg with gas in satisfactory quantities, and their local manager, Mr. J. B. Cheveront, is authority for the statement that they will build a pipe line from their Taylor county wells into Columbia without delay. Mr. S. D Jarvis, Newkirk, Oklaho ma, manager for the Decatur Drilling Syndicate, arrived Saturday to spend sometime in looking after their drilling operations on Brush Creek, Cumberland county. Mr. Dallas Goff, this city, is in charge of field operations and he reports good progress being made. Satisfactory progress is being made in drilling operations of the Columbia Development Company, on the Bob Rowe farm, and the Palmer Oil & Gas Company on the Sam Eoyse farm, both near town. Some very satisfac-- . tory formations are being encounter-ed,an- d small quantities of oil and gas have already been found in both wells. Mr. G. A. Roy, Nicholasville, pres ident of the Roy Petroleum Company, was here during the week, and he reported very satisfactory progress now being made with their drilling operations Sn Damron's Creek. A new boiler has been installed, and it is thought the work will progress uninterruptedly in the future. They are down something over 500 feet, and are going still deeper, notwithstanding the fact cliey have found oil at shallower depths. Mr. H. G. Schneider, Denver, Colorado, was here for several days the past week making a survey of this section in the interests of certain operators of that city who expect to begin development work in this territory as soon as practicable. Mr. Schneider left Saturday to spend the holidays at home, but expects to return here right after the first of the year. He expressed himself as being very favorably impressed with the local territory. Dog Ta- x- Last Notice.

Two weeks ago Miss Ruth Page, daughter of Dr. L F and Mrs. Marian Page, Indianapolis, was a very pleasant visitor to relatives in this place, her father's old home. Miss Page is an artistic dancer, and has audiences in New York, Chicago, Toledo, cities in South America, London, England, and other cities across the waters She is only about twenty years of age, perfect in form, possessing all the graces that come to a refind young lady, and perhaps has received more compliments from the press than any other artist of her age in this or any foreign countries. She dances as much for what she gets out of it In physical culture, as she does to please her admirers. Her mother, a charming woman, is with her in all her engagements. She was recently abroad and while in London she was the attraction at the Coliseum. In speaking of her the Daily London Mirror says: 'The butterfly dance performed by pretty and youthful Ruth Page is the finest thing of its kind we have seen, and this young lady should have a great future awaiting her." The London Mail says, "Nineteen year old Ruth Page, the wonderful dancer, is a most supple and alluring persons." The New York Evening Sun says: "Ruth Page, the pretty youngster who was the memorable Infanta, was deliciounin Bal Masque pantomine and proved her spiritual right to the batik and wings of a butterfly." There are many other notices from leading papers just as complimentary as the above. charmed -- Last Saturday afternoon Mrs Docia McClister, who was the mother of Mr. Leslie McClister, this place, died at her home, near Fairpl?y.

With a gesture of despair, Doctor Pendlehaven went out of the room. For a moment after he'd gone, and the sound of his footsteps had 'been lost in the corridor, the mother stared at her daughter. "The fact is," she burst out, "It's as Cousin John says, I haven't much influence over Reggie, but I don't believe he's as bad as people say. In a little town like this a person can't take a step sideways without old wags commenting on It. I hate Ithaca for just that reason." "If Reggie'd behave himself," replied the lady's daughter In a bored tone, "he wouldn't have to be chattered about. My advice is, mamma, that you give him a good raking over. If you don't mind your P's and Q's you'll never have Cousin John for your third husband, I can tell you that You're no nearer marrying him than you were ten years ago, as I can see." "I will, though. Miss Impudence," flashed back the woman. "Paul won't be much more than in his grave before Cousin John makes me his wife. I wish to heaven Paul would die, and and I don't notice with all your flirting and maneuvering you're getting your claws on Philip. . . . Ah, that shot told !" Katherine's face had gone red at the words, then very white. "How perfectly vile," she exclaimed, with a catch In her voice. Then she straightened up and laughed. "Well, years old and preI'm not forty-fiv-e anyway, nor tending I'm thirty-five- , do I dye my hair, and flounce out with lace to prove I'm young. There's a shot for you, mother darling!" The irate Mrs. Curtis rushed out of the room, followed by her daughter's mocking laugh. For three years Katherine had been madly, passionately In love with Philip MacCauley, an Intimate friend of the family. The young man's home adjoined hers, and during his orphaned boyhood he'd spent a great deal of his spare time at the Pendlehavens. But since he'd returned from France and had taken up the Salvation army work, a work which Katherine held in open contempt, the Intimacy had about ceased. CHAPTER V. Doctor John Ha9 a Visitor. After remaining hidden In the forest for some time, Tonnibel stole along toward Ithaca in the gathering gloom, her heart filled with hope. To get some medicine for Edith, and to take back the picture to the father who had offered money for it, were the two things she wanted to do now. Her young mind was busy with plans for her mother. If she could find some work to do, and Edith would go with her, she would get well again. That evening, just after dinner. Dr. ii John Pendlehaven was sitting In his office, his mind disturbed, his heart aching for the sick brother upstairs, and he remembered that the first three or four years after the disappearance of Paul's daughter had been spent In All those working n frantic search. on the case had finally decided that Edith Mindil, a young nurse who had cared for the child most of the time since her mother had died and was devoted .to her, had left home with the DAVIS 1 d1KSV helferiivd Piives exxpafT Til not Insult my only son," she HARDWARE COMPANY.

They were tense minutes that the two men stood waiting, until suddenly beyond them to the south a curly head came above the water's edge. Then they leapt to the shore and raced toward the place she must land. To the panting girl it was a race for life. Suddenly, like a flashing glimpse from Heaven, the words, "Stand Still an.d See the Salvation of the Lord," floated before h,er eyes like a flame of gold. Philip MacCauley's deep voice seemed to speak them In her ringing ears immediately after. "Goddy," she groaned, "Salvation of the Lord, oh, darlin' Salvation?' Just then her feet touched the pebbles on the bottom of the lake. With one wild leap she was on the shore and up the bank, Uriah screaming at her to stop. She heard the two men crashing after her. That her short, swift leaps could outdistance them for long if she tried for the boulevard, she had no hope. But all about ner were giant arms, offer, friends with outstretched ing her shelter. For one instant she paused, then sprang into the air, caught the lower branch of a great pine tree and like a squirrel scurried up it Almost at the top, spanned over by the blue sky, she crawled out to the end of a big limb and clung to It.

At the Jeffries Old Stand WV CHAPTER IV. The Pendlehavens. In all of Tompkins county no family had more prestige than Pendlehavens'. John and Paul Pendlehaven had chosen medicine and surgery as their vocatiou when they were in college. John was a bachelor, and Paul a widower. At the time this story opens the latter was an invalid, his Infirmity brought about by the death of his young wife, who had died at the birth of their daughter, and the disappearance of the little girl when she was but a year old. Pendlehaven place comprised a whole city block, on which stood a house, almost a mansion. In Vu family were John, Paul, and Mrs. ".rris and her two children, Katherine nl .Reginald. Mrs. Curtis was a sec-- t id cousin to the Pendlehaven broth-ei.- s and had made her kome with them since her children had been left fatherless. Mrs. Curtis had buried two husbands, Silas Curtis, the father of Katherine, and. Edmund Brown, the father of Reginald. For over a year now Paul Pendlehaven had not left his apartments in the southern wing of the house. Many times he had told his brother, John, that he only waited with what patience he could for the call to go away, to follow after his and perhaps, well, perhaps his child might now be with her mother. On thp day that Uriah Devon returned from his week's bout. Doctor Pendlehaven was seated opposite his cousin, Mrs. Curtis, at dinner. "Sarah," he began gravely, "I wish you'd consent to my taking Reginald In hand for a time. lie will be absolutely ruined if something Isn't done 'with him." The coquettish smile which Mrs. Curtis always used in the presence of the eminent doctor left her face, and her lips drew down at the corners. "What's he done now?" she cried. "He isn't going to college at all," said the doctor. "He won't pass any of his examinations if he doesn't go to class and get his hours in. . . ." He paused a moment and then went on, "Another thing I dislike to speak of, but I must Reginald has no idea of mine and thine. I'm very much afraid he takes what doesn't belong to him." Mrs. Curtis uttered a squeal. "Goodness gracious, you accuse him of stealing," she screamed. "I'm afraid he does, Sarah" he answered gently. "Constantly I'm missing money and things. It will hurt you to know that some one almost stripped my wardrobe of clothes, and now I find there isn't much left for poor Paul. Paul is very much distressed!

Here's where I holler!" She sent out a quick birdlike trill, and the man in the canoe held his paddle suspended in the air as he studied the forest This didn't interest Tonnibel as much as did the fact that Devon and Reggie Brown jumped to their feet and raced awaj toward the boulevard. Tonnibel from her perch saw them disappear toward Ithaca before she slid to the ground. The man in the canoe, too, made but a short pause before he dipped his paddle and shot away. On the deck of the boat Tonnibel picked up and. dripping wet, went swiftly down the cabin steps. There she found her mother on the bunk, her face discolored by her husband's blows. She looked as if she were dead, and for a moment the forlorn child of the wilderness uttered heartbroken little cries for help. The cabin was cluttered in the struggle Uriah Devon had had with his wife. In despair Tony looked around. The old clothes daddy had brought home were strewn over the cabin floor. Tonnibel heaped them together, then began to examine them. They needed nothing but pressing. This she'd do to save her mother the work; and perhaps the fact that he had something ready to sell would make Uriah less brutal when he came back. In running her fingers over a coat, searching for small rents, Tony felt something between the lining and Gus-sie-Pisl- outside, she hastily pulled out It was small and much worn.

A baby's face smiled up at her, and her own lips curved a bit in answer to th'e laughing challenge in the little value!" "Were they?" queried Mrs. Curtis, leaning over the table, still very angry.

No evidence can be more conclusive than that of the man who actually knows by personal experience and this is the line of testimony carried in this little booklet. There is no cost for the booklet. If you cannot call for it. write, drop us a postal, and we will mail it to youwithout charge. It is so valuable you ought to have it because it is the open door through which the farmer will pass from the hard working drudge to the comparative comfort of the manufacturer. The Fordson makes it possible for the farmer to plan and direct, while the machine will do the work. It presents the widest latitude for the farmer to exercise his brain power and plan how he can get the most from the soil, knowing that the Tractor will do the hard work, do it better, do it quicker, and therefore do it more profitably. This means not alone in the cultivation of the soil, in the harvesting of the crops, but in a hundred and one different demands that are made for labor, cutting of ensilage and the filling of the silo: cutting of wood; operation of the washing machine; in the lighting of the house with electricity; supplying the house with running water; bringing to the farmer's wife and daughters the conveniences of the city, relieving them of much of the hard, unpleasant part of housework.
