This company is a purely
local organization and has been formed for the purpose of
drilling for oil on the famous “Cypress Pond” anticline in
Tishomingo County, Miss.
Many geologists of nation
wide repute have pronounced the property of the Company as being
one of the most favorable locations in the State for the
discovery of oil.
Active drilling operations
are being prosecuted at present and this end of the business is
in charge of Oscar Hanson, assisted by Bill Steinhoff.
These two drillers have had over 25 years experience in the
drilling and development of oil wells.
Dr. F. T. Carmack—a life long
resident of this section of the country—is President of the
Company and Captain H. R. Backhous is Secretary-Treasurer.
The area included in the
Company’ property comprises a total of over 10,000 acres and
covers the Dome of the structure almost in its entirety.
The Company is dependent on
the sale of stock for continuancy of its operations and in the
event of oil being found in large quantities offers a wonderful
opportunity to the investor for a life long income for a small
outlay, especially as the Executive of the Company is strong,
capable and thoroughly efficient, and will under any and all
circumstances look after and protect the interests of the
Company and its stockholders.
