A Great p easure I To know that you are getting full value for every dollar you spend. We give 36 in. to the jd, and 16 o& to the pound. This has been one of our greatest advertising- features and we have always done our utmost to live up to it and feel that this method has added greatly to the success of our business. A dollar spent with us gets a dollars worth of goods in return. We don't feel that it is worth while to quote prices on staple groceries as everybody knows about what they are worth. We guarantee to sell you goods as cheap as you can buy them anywhere. We only have one price and that is to one and all. The man that trades on time pays the same as the man that pays the cash. You may say other stores don't do that; how can you. If you will stop and think we do a great many thing's that other stores don't do. 4B f W. C.

The iianisdall Oil company is pushing work in the Lost Creek pool and continues to get some excellent wells. It has a daily production now of l.OOO barrels on Ottftge lot ;512 alone. Its Nos. 2, ,'. 4 lad " have been drilled this month and they are all tine wells, averaging 200 barrels each; Nos. 0 and 7 are drilling. On lot $4 No. 2 was a failure, but a rig is going up for No. A. No. 1 was one mile from the west end and is good for about 5 barrels. No. 2 was not in the right direction. No. li will be drilled on the far west end and is expected to be a good well. A rig has gone in for No. 2 on li t 300. No. 1 on this lot was drilled 7 or lyeafi ago and was dry. It was one mile northeast of No. 2. The log of this first test reads like the "life story" of some eastern hole. It gives account of the Beret Grit, the Big Injun and the ilordan sands, unknow n in this held at this time. The manner in which this pool is being developed after the drilling of failures when the Held was first gone over, the spivad of the Bird Creek all over the territory north of Tulsa, completely surrounding the failures of the early days, tempts one to go over the map and find the dusters of the beginning and use them as guides to the opening of new pools. A dry hole means nothing fearful in tfm Reld any more. Saturday's Independence Reporter. Skiatook Bottling Works. The1 following is a list of our flavofl to choose from.
