A MILKLESS COCOANDT. The Trenton Sand In the Walton Contains Water Instead of Oil, Well The Well Drilled in yesterday Afternoon in the Presence of Many Visitors. The Walton well drilled lu yesterday by the Bunker Hill company is a failure. Trenton rock was reached at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon and the 'first screw into the sand showed slight signs of oil. When the Trenton rock had been penetrated to a depth of twelve feet salt water of the beautiful blue lick variety rose swiftly toward the earth surface and drowned every hope of oil. Trenton rock was struck at a depth of j.012 feet, Tne shale formation was found at, a depth of 581 feet and 77 feet of earth's was penetrated before reaching limestone. The well was drilled In to a depth of 1030 feel wheci the rush at water prevented further exploration. The result is a great disappointment. Many oil men from different oil regions had representatives on the ground when the well was drilled in. The Bunker Hill company will drill two more wells. The well of the Chicago company on the Bumgarner lot is down 600 feet and will be drilled in early next week. ,.-• XMAS HOLIDAY SUPPERS! -PRESENTS- Best Patterns! Best Fabrics! Very Best Styles!
