DRILLING TO START HERE
EARLY NEXT .MONTH
The U. S. Drilling Company, the
new organization growing out oi the
purchase of the U. S. Drilling Aso
cation, through their representative
Mr. H. E. Ilursch, of Kansas City,
announces today their intentions of
putting down wells at this point,
Campbell and Hildreth.
Mr. Hursch, who will be remem
bered as being in charge of the pull
ing of the casing at the big Chief
Oil & Gas Company's test well, on
the Alice Hosmer place, north of
town, in company with Miss Watson
of billings, Montana, is in the city
today pieparatory to opening up a
branch office here. Miss Watson
comes from the oil fields of Montana
is a young lady of extremely charm
ing personality, has had some six
years experience in geological work
and is familiarly known in the north
west as the "Little Geologist."
Mr. Hur.-ch informs the Commer
cial Advertiser that two strings of
tools will be used for the three wells,
large trucks to be used in convey
ing them back and forth, between the
tluee fowns, and that work on the
erection of the rig w'll shortly be
well under way.
The site selected for the putting
down of the now well is close to the
main traveled road, some 2U or 2',L
miles directly northwest of the big
both Mr. Hursch and M"ss Watson,
while apparently duly conservative,
appear to be no little enthu.'cd over
the pro ncct of striking oil. Wed
