Their ed will last for more than 50 .oca S The new coal mine, about 1~/2 miles east of town, on land owned by J.J. Carson, but leased and operated by Dodd and Reed, comprises about 300 acres. A tunnel leads to the coal beds here, which are only about 30 feet below surface. Veins and layers of 13 feet and more are here found in abundance, and the lignite is of such ex- cellent quality that it burns to clear white ashes, leaving almost no cinders, and producing splendid heat, as we can testify ourselves, having used some for several weeks. The Cotton Belt R.R. has built a switch to the mine and in a short time the track will be ready and cars loaded with the black diamonds, for which there is always a ready market. The revenue from such an enterprise is great and at the same time the expenditures, mostly for labor, reach high figures. But labor has to live, to spend money for eating and clothing, and this money will be circulated mostly through our merchants, and this in turn again will benefit the entire community. J.J. Carson will begin the erection of about 12 houses now, to satisfy the immediate wants of the miners. It will not be out of place here to state that the Texas Clay Products Co., which has a very large and modern plant here on land leased from T.A. Bartlett, and con- taining the best clay in the state for brick and tile, has received the first orders of the season--100,000 tiles--to be delivered as soon as possible. That's going some..

Lots of land used Americans use 100,000 acres of land to dump their garbage and trash, and they spend $4 billion a year to get it there. In fact, Americans throw away enough organic wastes each year to produce the energy equivalent of 80 million barrels of oil, points out the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, Texas A&M University System. Many new food packaging items are con- venient and economical but lead to waste problems.

What do you get for someone who has everything because that's what you've given over the years? Is there one gift that can fill the holes in your list? If you don't think so, and if there is no gift idea that you haven't tried, con- sider what your local bank can offer. That's right, your bank. Because your bank can personalize a United States Savings Bond for anyone on your gift list. Bonds have long been a great gift for any occasion. They come in your choice of denominations, with prices starting at just $25. They are always ap- preciated because they grow in value as they are held, to double in value at (is are a great way to save all year round. If you can't bear to buy another shirt, blouse, or tie; if electronic games-don't do anything for you, try U. S. Savings Bonds. You'll find, as millions of people have before you, that an easier, more practical gift is hard to find.

DriUsite is in a 416-acre unit in Henderson County's Jose Cordova Survey, five miles south of the Malakoff townsite. The well was drilled to total depth of 8,850 feet and was perforated in the Travls Peak at an interval 8,607 to 8,736 feet into the hole. A fracturing job in- volving 162,000 pounds of sand and 12,700 barrels of gelled water was used. Other formation tops noted during the drilling included the Woodbine at 4,000, Rodessa at 7,463 and Pettet at 8,068 feet. The Malakoff South Field was discovered in November, 1955, and prior to the DeArman well completion was producing about 600 million cubic feet of gas annually. Activity in Freestone County's Reed Field continues at an intensive pace with the spudding of the No. 1 Denton "A," located three miles southeast of Fairfield. The well is in a 655-acre lease block in the D. McLean Survey. It's projected depth of 13,800 feet will be sufficient to test the Haynesvllle, Bossier and Cotton Valley Formations.
