that oil had been struck in the Laura

well will be continued on down as a
deep tet as It was meant to be.
The well will go on as a lt inch

pected at 1500 to 1800 feet and the
third at 3000 to possibly 3300 feet.
The site for this well was selected

timates are also his.
Kl Paa. Company to Drill.
The Kl Paso-Sunahine Oil company
an El Paso concern of which C E.
(Henrv) Kelly is president has Its
derrick built and is preparing to pet
its rts; in to beffin its wen at a very
earlv date. The site for this well
was also selected by Dr. Tucker and Is
near the Sunshine well.
The strikins; of oil in the well was
no surprise as shallow oil has been
found in t he vicinity of Pecos for
years. The Texas company developed
a considerable flow of oil and gas at
a comparative!? shallow depth north
of Toyafa. several years aa;o. and oil
ir other wells In the vicinity of Pecos
has been found for years. This led
drillers and some geologists to be-
lieve that big flows of oil would be
found at greater depth hence the faith
of the Sunshine people.

BELIEVE PAY SAND IS
FOLLOWING RED RIVER
According to Vernon Texas re-
ports it is a general belief that it
sand as deeloued in Burk-Wctroner '
section of the Burkburnett field fol-
lows the northwest trend of Red river
Into Wilbarger county and many loca-
tions are being made contiguous to
the rer as far as Tolbert. The Neal-
Hamilton Oil company of Vernon has;
let a contract for drilling a well near!
Davis in this area and several other'
companies are preparing to drill.
A good strike at Doans. 18 miles!
north of Vernon will be considered as
proof practically positive of the ex-
tension of the field mentioned. An
eastern corporation is to drill in the
forks of Red and Pease rivers.

CoDfirmation of Thrift No.
2's Three Thousand Bar-
rel Well Starts Things
By ARTHUR LOUTS HARK.
Burkburnett Texas May 2. Excite-
ment reached an antf-eUmax today
when the report that the Thrift No. 2
On Company brought In Its 3000-bar-rel
well in Block 82 of the Burkbur-
nett field was confirmed. This wan
followed by a scramble for acreage in
the northwest portion of the field and
leaseholders experienced no difficulty
in disposing of any acreage they cared
to put on the market.
Experienced on men expressed their
belief that the Thrift No. 2 well will
prove to be the biggest producer in
the field and that Its production
should reach the 400e-barrel mark to-
night. Twelve hundred dollars was
offered for one share of stock in this
well on the local market Thursday.
Other high bids for stock of compa-
nies with holdings in this field at the
same call were: Oolconda S450:
Burk-Sun $225; Mid-Field. 2105; Con-
Every company that own acreage
in or near the new pool is planning to
develop their properties at once and
there is every indication that within
a short time there will be almost as
many derricks in the new pool as
there are in the townelte.
The big companies are awake how-
ever and are planning to develop their
holdings in the -ew field. The Texas
company is reported to be hurrying up
the erection of a number of rigs while
the Burk-Waggoner people are ex-
pected to put down sixteen wells on
their sixty-acre tract.
The Humble No. 2 in Block 41 is
now making approximately 1700 bar-
rels while late reports from the Gold-
en Cycle and Burk-Waggoner are
that these wells are flowing from
2900 to 3000 barrels a day.
Last wel CbSENBECk rod a new cut of their map made showing the NEW weDs which came in surrounding
SfT PY 7 Deed aDOlher nP one used in this advertisement does not show the HUMBLE
NUMBER THREE on the same block with OSSENBECK. nor the Collins County Oil and Gas company's bk
GUSHER directly west of OSSENBECK'S property. And here's a point to ccJex: THE CLOSERTO OS
11 PROPERTY "THE BIGGER THE HUMBLE WELLS GET. OSSENBECK acreage k
ABSOLUTELY proven. There k bo longer any question but we will get oil and we will get a GUSHER.
Money Back Every
There are only 650 OSSENBECK shares in all This means that a hundred dollars
buys one 63Mi interest k the OSSENBECK Oil Company. Out of every 650 bar-
rels of oil produced one barrel belongs to the man who invests a hundred dollars. OS-
SENBECK is jam-up to 3.000. 4.000 and 6.000-barreI wells. But suppose OSSEN-
BECK gets only a three thousand banel well. EVERY ONE HUNDRED DOL-
LAR SHARE WOULD EARN MORE THAN 4 BARRELS OF OIL PER
DAY which is selling for over TEN DOLLARS. Every 10 days you would get
your money back.
Get that location look at the map again. Remember that OSSENBECK
and HUMBLE NUMBER THREE are in the same block. A block is 1C0
acres Humble own the east half of 41 and their Xo. 3 well is in the
north corner OSSENBECK is in the north corner of the west half. If
you ever had a SURE SHOT offered you yon have NOW. And just
over in Block SS 1800 feet away are the other two HUMBLE GUSH-
ERS. And EAST WEST NORTH AND SOUTH ARE MORE GUSHERS.
d Oil Men
And OSSENBECK is managed by EXPERIENCED OIL MEN. The presi-
dent. J. H. Ossenbeck has been connected with the BIG companies tince he
was 10 years old. And he's' from a family of oil people. His father has
been with the Standard Oil company for FORTY YEARS. Before reignun?
his position to enter the vi! bosiness for himself. Mr. 3. H. OSSENBECK had
covered the Elect ra and Burkburnett fields for the Texas company for more
than seven years. There's not a lease in this section with which he i not
familiar. And let this be proof of his ability. WHEN THESE TWO 'AND A
HALF ACRES WERE SELECTED there were no bir GUSHERS in this dis-
trict but Mr. Ossenbeck KNEW that north and nest of the towcsite the
BIG WELL would be found. These two and a half acres have increased many
times in value since their original purchase and are today worth the capitali-
sation of the company.

Mr. Ossenbeek is anxious that as many people as possible share in the wealth of OSSEKBECK'S two and a half acres and for those who
do not care t purchase a full share he has issued instructions to make a certificate for any part of a share. It is now possible for you to
buy any amount of OSSENBECK you care to BUT FOR YOUR OWN SAKE BUY AS MUCH AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN. Remember
that the Texas company started about 11 years ago with a capitalizition of only $50000 ; today they are capitalized for $67000000. An
old Texas company man one who helped to build this great organizition is now starting out to build another OSSENBECK.
