A STRONG OIL COMPANY.
One Will be Organized to Develop the
It was stated in the Post yester-
day that Judge W. W. Allen of
San Francisco, who has been pros-
pecting in South Texas for the
past few days, had decided to en-
gage in an undertaking that would
prove an entering wedge into the
true development of the section's
resources. On account of all the
details not then having been ar-
ranged, Judge Allen's plans were
not made public. He got to work
early yesterday, however, and after
putting in the day, attending to
the details of the ariangement for
his project, unfolded his plans to a
representative of the Post last
night. Judge Allen has acquired
extensive interests in Texas and
during the conversation with the
Post's representative last night,
he said that before twenty days
had passed, he would have per-
fected the organization of a com-
pany which, in carrying out its
work, would prove a revelation to
It will be remembered that in
referring to Tndge Allen's visit to
Houston Sunday the Post stated
that he had gone to Nacog-
doches to spend a few days. Ar-
riving at that place the judge was
driven sixteen miles into the in-
terior, for the purpose of looking
at the oil property belonging to
the estate of A. F. Anderson.
There are 3427 acres of this land,
2000 acres of which is oil produc-
ing territory. There are already
fourteen wells capped and ready to
produce, and there are some 4000
barrels of the oil in tanks on the
property. While the judge is a
sturdy old gentleman who never
loses his head over anything, he
said he was fairly swept off his
feet at what he saw on this proper-
ty. He declares the oil is the
finest crude lubricating oil he has
ever seen in the United States,
which is an absolute fact, for it is
so conceded by experts of the
Standard Oil company. The
fourteen wells now ready for pump
ing will easily yield 75 barrels a
day, and a conservative estimate
of its value is §4 a barrel. Judge
Allen, though, intends to sink
sufficient wells to produce $100,000
worth of oil daily. He is a thor-
ough geologist and asserts positive-
ly that this can be done on that
land. The stratum Irom which
this oil comes is the first or lubri-
cating stratum, and there are two
strata underneath, the oil !>ecom
injr lighter and better the deeper
is its stratum. The present wells
are only 400 feet deep. In addi-
tion to the oil, it is claimed that a
stratum of phosphate averaging
twenty leet in thickness, underlies
the whole of the territory, and
there is excellent timber on 3000
acres for which $15,000 has al-
ready been offered as it stands.
Returning to Houston, Judge
Allen directed his efforts toward
securing this property, and was
successful. He is elated at the
prospects of the success of his
movement and is anxious to get in
shape to commence the work of
development His company will
be capitalized at $1,500,000, and
the shares will be non-assessable.
Houston will be the headquarters
of the company. So positive is
Judge Allen of the feasibility of
his plans that he stated last night
that the company would be paying
dividends on $10,000,000 within a
Another thing that .vill demand
Judge Allen's immediate attention
is the development of the famous
old Nacogdoches sulphur spring,
which happens to be located on
the property he has secured, into
a popular health resort. This
spring derives its name trom the
Indian chief, Nacogdoches, of the
Nacogdoches tribe, and the same
beech tree that old Nacogdoches
whittled hieroglyphics upon in his
palmiest davs still casts its shade
on the placid bosom thereof.
Tudge Allen will leave for San
Francisco tonight, but states that
he will return within three weeks,
when he will have perfected the
organization of his company. He
is simply delighted with the treat-
ment that hr s been accorded him
by the citizens, particularly mem-
bers of the bar, during his visit
Houston, and says he is really
anxious to get his matters in shape
so that he can come back among
AN ENTERTAINING DISCOURSE.
Enoch, Who Walked With God, In the
Light of the Present Age.
Dr. Lowber preached to a large
audience in the Central Christain
church last evening on the above
named subject, tic especially
showed the importance of walking
with God at the present time.
"Enoch was contemporary with
the seventh person in the line with
Cain, and in this person the race
of Cain had become completely
alienated from God. The race of
Cain ha^ made considerable pro-
gress in material civilization. Jabal
was the father of such as dwelt in
tents and had cattle. To him the
idea first occurred of carrying his
house along with him. In both
ancient and modern times, some ot
the most formidable armies have
come from the great sheperd races
dwelling outside of the border of
civilization. Tubal was the father
of such as handle the harp and the
organ. He originated what we
now call the Fine Arts. These
Arts may contribute to morality and
spirituality, or they may have the
opposite influence. Itdependsupon
whose hands into which they fall.
Tubal-Cain was the originator of
the Useful Arts. In Lamech the
wicked tendency of the Cainities
terminated in an utterly Godless
life. While they accomplished
niuch tor a material civilization,
like many even useful men of the
present age, they entirely forgot
their God. Lamech violated the
primal law of marriage by taking
two wives at the same time, viz:
Adah and Zillah. His language to
them is the only extant remnant
we have of antediluyian poetry.
The life of Enoch was • strictly re-
ligious in contrast to that of the
"Enoch walked with God. He
was a friend of God, liked His
company", and would not walk in
any path that did not lay in God's
path. We walk with God when
He is in our thoughts. He is
naturally suggested to us by the
objects about which we thinK, and
in all our conversations and acts
we try to be in harmony with the
will of God We do not walk in
the council of the ungodly by go-
ing into saloons, and by going into
houses of impurity. The godly
man is pure in his thoughts, in his
conversations and in his acts.
"Enoch was a man of faith.
The author ot the Hebrew Epistle
mentions his name among the
heroes of the faith. 'By faith
Enoch was translated that he
shouid not see death, and was not
found, because God had translated
him; for before his t-anslation he
had this testimony, that he pleased
God.' He was faithful under the
most trying circumstances. We
learn from Jude that he was en-
gaged in hot conflicts with the un-
godly of his day. Surrounded
with the blandishments of the
world, and subjected to Its tempta-
tions, his faith did not waiver.
Jude says, Enoch prophesied, say-
ing: 'The Lord cometh with ten
thousands of his saints, to execute
judgment upon all, and to convince
all that are ungodly among them
of all their ungodly deeds which
they have ungodly committed, and
of all their hard speech which un-
godly sinners have spoken against
"Enoch was a righteous man.
He pleased God. Jesus said to his
disciples that none could enter into
God's kingdom unless their righ-
teousness exceeded that of the
Scribes and Pharasees. He also
exhorted all to seek first the king-
dom of God and His righteousness.
He even said of himself that it was
necessary for him to fulfill all
righteousness. Enoch was thus a
type of the Messiah in living a
"Enoch was not, for God took
him His place was empty in this
world. The author of the Hebrew
Epistle calls it a translation. He
did not suffer the sting of death,
but without pain passed into the
unseen universe. His translation
reveals to us a higher life than this.
God took him and his permanent
home was to be with his Lord. He
thus anticipated the plainer revela-
tions that were to come to men
through Christ. Jesus speaks in
as familiar terms of the future
world as we can speak of this. He
declared that his father's house
had many mansions, and that he
was going to make preparations for
the future reception of his dis-
ciples. We know that life is short

"Mosquito malaria" is now
monopolizing the attention ot Brit-
ish medical men. Investigations
completed in London, in which
healthy persons allowed them-
selves to be bitten by insects
shipped from Rome, and were
promptly stricken with malaria in
its most violent form, have demon-
strated that a malarial parasite
transmitted by a particular species
Dr. Patrick Manson, the medi-
cal adyiser of the colonial office,
who was the projector of the theo-
ry, pointed out in an interview
that America has an immediate
and vital interest in the mosquito
problem. He asserts that in Cu-
ba, Porto Rico and the Philip-
pines, as well as in many ot the
southern states, there exist tropical
conditions peculiarly conducive to
the inception and g:owth of mala-
rial diseases He adds that unless
the American government employs
heroic measures the danger will
become as infectious as in its na-
tive regions in Africa.
"In fact," he said, "America
has now to grapple with an evil
which has bafflled the authorities
in England's tropical possessions.
The evil cannot be eradicated by
radical measures. There must be
a positive campaign against mala-
ria-breeding conditions, and fame
and fortune await the man who
will devise either machinery or a
system of disinfection which will
spell death for the mosquitoes."
Dr. Manson suggests that Amer-
ica's educational system, "which
is in some respects in advance of
the British ideas," ought properly
to include a course in elementary
hygiene. He says students should
be taught the rudimentary princi-
ple that parasites flourish wherever
stagnant water is permitted to ac-
cumulate, and thus children would
grow up with the knowledge firm-
ly rooted in their minds that dan-
gerous consequences are sure to
follow the neglect of such simple
conditions of health.
Cotton Crop Estimate.

Memphis cotton exchange an esti-
mate of the cotton crop of the
United States made on Nov. 17,

ton crop exchange. Out of the
133 estimates made, the general
average struck was 9.908,485. The
lowest estimate made was 8,987,700
bales, and the highest estimate was
10,696,000. This is the estimate
for the cotton crop of 1900-1901.
The nearest estimate made to the
general average was 9,900,000

Last Stfnday morning after the
delivery of an excellent sermon to
a larger congregation than usually
attend the morning seryices, Rev.
W. A. Reagan accepted in a few
words the call of the Atlanta
Baptist Church, which has been
given since his resignation some
time back. He stated, by way of
explaining his resignation that he
had feared that the church was not
accomplishing the work that it
should and that a change ot pastors
would, maybe, be their desire.
However, as they saw fit to recall
him, he would accept and dis-
charge the duties of pastor to the
best of his ability, with the under-
standing that at any ttme if the
church should so desire it he would
turn his work over to another.
Rey. Reagan is a splend preacher
and is well thought of by the peo-
ple of Atlanta and we hope that
the members of his church will
arouse themselves and work with
him in accomplishing the christian
work needed in Atlanta—Atlanta

A Wonderful Bird.
One day a wonderful bird tapped
at the window of Mrs. Nansen—
wife of the famous artic explorer—
home at Christiana. Instantly the
window was opened and in anoth-
er moment she covered the little
messenger with kisses and caresses.
The carrier pigeon had been
away from the cottage 30 long
months, but it had not forgotten
the way home, It brought a note
from Nansen stating that all was
going well with him and bis expe-
dition in the polar region.
The frail carrier darted out into
the blizzardly air. It flew like an
arrow over a thousand miles of
ocean and plains and forests, and
one morning entered the window
of the waiting mistress and de-
livered the message which she had
been awaiting so anxiously.
We boast of human pluck, sa-
gacity and endurance, but this
loving little carrier pigeon, in its
homeward flight, after an absence
of 30 months, accomplished a feat
so wonderful that we can only
give ourselves up to the amaze-
ment and admiration which must

Mr. Eyerett's first experiment;
was with twenty trees in Baker
county about ten years ago. These
trees are now bearing from ten to

and, estimating 100 trees on an
acre at ten pounds to the tree, the
annual yield will bring $roo. Tins

"From The Ashes."
The Curtiss Comedy Company
on last night presented Milton
Noble's Masterpiece, and met with
a large and appreciative audience.
Mr. Curtiss took the character of
Joe Blossom, the Californian, and
in his style gave many original
touches to the character that makes
him a second Noble, his revision of
the work being of a more modern
taste than others playing the piece.
There is also scope for heavy work
and the character of Gerald Gray,
by W. S. Hammer, was a villian
character calculated to put to
shame the meanest of mean. Levi
Mosier, the Jew, by John Keiffer
was also an up-to-date character,
made so largely by the originality
of the player. The detective, by
Percy Cameron, was also good.
The lady characters had light work
except Madge Irving who took the
leading role. J. F. Morrow and J.

well, but both had light characters.
