Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 3/19/1907.

S.T. Waldo is at work on the largest instrument of writing ever put on record in the county. It is a deed of trust from the Columbia Gas and Electric Co., to the Knickerbocker Trust Co. to secure $25,000,000.00 5-percent gold bonds. The trust deed includes several thousand acres of oil and gas lands in this county, purchased from A.E. Kenney, E.L. Austin, J.F. Donaldson and others. This trust deed will cost several thousand dollars to record in the several counties as it is a book of 180 closely printed non-pareil type pages.
