1987 Stftip For Acre of Texas Land Llvermore Gazette: The Algona Republican editor says that Editor Jackson of Coleman. Texas, solicited him for assistance In raising money for the purchase of 700,000 acres of land for a national park; and that in the spirit of brotherly love he sent him a $1.00 bill, and that now he has n receipt to show that he owns one acre of ground in the new park. And furthermore, If the picture of his acre in the park is a correct representation of what he got for his money, he is rcndy to donate the sanctity of the premises to all or sundry of his friends who would like to get away from the trials and tribulations of this world for ft brief spell, and rusticate on his one acre of Texas land. Also he predicts that after they spend a brief spell there he will rest assured of their early return to God's chantry. Jfo* so long ago a lady who was tefeerbt$ in the interests of missionary wreck in China solicited this of- ffie» fnv a small sum of cash, ex- ftttia. tSa« oar money went so far in tftat country that one Chinese boy could receive a. Christian education tor only 25 e«nts. and that we would tavs tfte satisfaction of knowing that w* had brought a b*»th«n soul oat of ctorfcness into Bgftt trial said Httln IXfathen vooM fre instructed ne to wbo was has benefactor and guardian asget in this country, and wmdd report to> us yearly, and wouhi probaMy forever after ris« up and call agMegBtd-'Ty* thought that w» « wbote tot fee cw mcoey. So thca and tbere we Umsted to en« CftJnaman. and for aught we tottrw oar tftfe is still good in him. We tore M* hfe picture* but "San Chiaamen took alike", and we wiB nrap ear Chinaman for the Algona tailor's one act* of Texas land, un- sigbt nween. Tfcfa offer bold* good indefinitely. Editor's Note—We are sorry that we cannot accept the kind offer to swap the Gazette Editor's Chinaman for our acre of Texas land. If we could use the Chinaman here in the shop, we might do it, but they tell us thnt the Chinese typesetters have about 16 times as many fonts of type as do those setting English. However, we might act as a go-between. Maybe the Texas boys would be willing to swap back our dollar and something to boot for a good Chinpman. and we'll ask them about it. After all, there must be someone who could use a good Chinaman, although most of them seem to be quite busy across the Pacific at the present time. Now Frank, Who Is This Eleanore? Frank Green, city marshal, got a letttr in the mail Wednesday morning, postmarked and with a return address and box number, from a distant town in Iowa. The city officer opened and read the letter, he pondered over its many pages, then turned to several nearby folks and said: "That's hist fine, but I don't know anyone named Eleanor*." So if there is another Frank Green in this vicinity, they will know what happened to the letter. Must Maintain Bailroad The &« mil«8 of railroad between Ccrwith and St. Benedict must be maintained by the H. & St. I*, the interstate commerce commission ruled Wednesday after the road's petition to abandon it was heard.

DRILL FOR COAL NEAR SWEA CITY Work At Vernon Burt Farm; Sure Coal Is There Swea City Herald: Four Fort Dodge coal miners have been at the Vernon Burt farm four miles northeast of Swea City since a week ago Monday drilling to determine whether coal was present in quant- ty and quality sufficient to be mined. The experiment is being made by Walter Benson, former farmer here, and Wm. Suer. The work is under the direction of Tom Irvine, a veteran coal driller. The fourth member of the party is a son of Mr. Suer. All four men are ex- >erienced coal miners. Using a drill operated by hand from a derrick, the men were still n pand Monday after a week of toil. They expected arather week of work would be necessary before they could begin their calculations. The party started from Fort Dodge with a large power drill, but the machine could not be taken under the highway underpasses, nor would it clear the high line wires. If the men arc encouraged enough after the present experiment with the hand drill Is finished, they will dismantle the power drill at Fort Dodge, haul it here and set it up again. Numerous holes then will be sunk over the farm before the miners feath definite conclusion* concerning- the quantity and quality of the coal. Well drillers have said for years that coal underlies this neighborhood, particularly from Swea City east. A four-foot vein was struck when the town well was drilled last year. The well at the Burt farm penetrates a seven-foot vein. Mr. Irvine said Monday it was possible the drilling would reach 800 feet before con! was struck. He has spent a life-time prospecting for co'il. gold and other mineral deposits throughout the western part of the United States. As a rule. Mr. Irvine said, in this part of Iowa a layer of sand from oO to 40 feet will be found near the surface. Then comes blue clay to a depth of 18 feet before hardpan is struck. Beneath the hardpan is the "roof—reported to be cap rock— over the coal deposit. Often a vein three feet in /depth can be mined at a profit. The men Monday were non-committal about the success of their experiment "Come back in a week or so, ant we might have more to report,' said the veteran Mr. Irvine.
