This new producer is sa d to be a much larger well than the discovery, which flowed only 60 barrels per hour initital production, and is estimated to be good for 6,000 to 8,000 barrels. Tlae Wills No. 1 is located about 1 miles northeast of the discovery and nearer the, Hen- derson count line. The bring- ing in of this well provides a con- siderabla extension of production in the Capuga territory opened by the discovery of the Edens No. 1 and gives real assurance of an extensive field. Rampy No. l The third 13roducing well in the Cayuga field was practically assured last week when sand was cored in the Rampy No. 1, located about one half mile east of the discovery This well m also in the 17,000 acre block own- ed by Texas Seaboard and Tide- water Companies. The last re- port had this test in oil sand at a depth below 4,000 feet and' he completion of the well is expect- ed over the week.end. Riddlesperger Test Information on the Riddlesper- ger test which is being put down the Cross Roads section by tor & Webb, independent op- erators of Corsicans, continues very slim. The owners express themselves as being confident bf success, but local public opinion is inclined to look at the situa- tion from a pessimistic angle. It is understood that this test has reached a depth nearing 4,000 feet with the Austin chalk at at 3,445 feet. The elevation is 350 feet. m,, we will gladly refund your money on any RED it item that is not entirely satisfactory?

Lindamood, 32, of this city,, was instantly killed at 3:55Tuesday morning when he was struck by a fast southbound Cotton Belt freight train about 1 mileeast of the city as he sat, apparently, asleep on the tracks. According to the information re- ceived, the victim was sitting on the north rail with his head rest- ing on his knees, and with his feet between the rails. The train knocked him clear of the track, striking him first on the head, which, together, with the face was badly broken and bruised. The left leg, between the knee and ankle, was broken and there were many other bruises about the body. According to the engineer, the train was traveling at a fast rate of speed on the down grade when the fatal accident occured. He said when he saw the man sit- ting on the rail apparently asleep, that he puton all brakes and blew his whistle many times, but was unable to arouse the victim, and that the momentum of the heavy train was such that he was unable to effect a stop until after the man had been knocked clear of the rails. As soon as the train had stop- ped the engineer and train crew returned to investigate the trag- edy, and finding that the man had been killed instantly, the train crew came in to the city and notiffedJ. D. Evans, local Cotton Belt agent. Justice W. F. Young and Constable Hu gh Pick- el were also notified and return- ed with the crew to the scene of the fatal accident for an inquest before the body was moved. The body was then turned over to J. A. Ballard, and brought to the i3allard Funeral Home here to be prepared for burial. Funeral services for the de- ceased were held at 2 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon at the Bap- tist Church, conducted by Rev. Wallace Clark pastor of. the church assisted by Tom Johnson. Interment took place at the Mal. akoff Cemetery. The deceased is survived by his wife and three small children; Bobble, 6; Ruby Jewel, 5; and Beverly Ray, 2. dozen llc 14-o .
