50 Cents per Share. Nothing in the entire history of business has proved so quickly and so largely remunerative as investments in the stock of really reliable Oil Companies. Up to the present time the sales of Petroleum have paid seventy-five per cent. on the actual capitals of all the Companies combined. Some have paid marvelously : one Company, for instance, for $5 paid on the stock, has sold for over $400 per share ; that is to say, For $500 paid, the Lucky Buyer realized over $40,000 Cash This Company made their money by work ; but the sense thing can and perhaps soon will be done by other equally enterprising corporations. THE MORGAN OIL AND MINING COMPANY was organized for WORK. Their estates embrace 2200 acres in fee, clear of incumbrance, located on Oil Creek, near the following celebrated wells. COQUETTE WELL,   REED WELL, MAPLE SHADE WELL,   JERSEY WELT., EGBERT WELL   TURTLE WELL, NOBLE WELL,   KEYSTONE WELL. And in West Virginia, adjacent to the famed " Llewellyn," "Morgan," and "Eternal Centre" Wells, the former of which flowed over 100 barrels of oil per hour for over nine months. The Entire Property is deeded direct to the Stockholders, who are Joint Owners of the Land; and every subscriber enters on the " Ground Floor" of the Corporation. This Company presents a degree of security for investors, and a certainty of dividends, never equaled by any Company yet organized. THE VERY LOW RATE OF SUBSCRIPTION (50 CENTS PER SHARE.) WAS FIXED AS AN EARNEST OF THE COMPANY'S DETERMINATION TO WORK, AND NOT TO SPECULATE. On the property of the MORGAN OIL AND MINING COMPANY six (6) Wells are at once going forward. These, with a yield of oil equal to adjacent properties, will insure to this Company a daily cash income of $5000 to $111,000 over every possible expense. Information concerning the estates of the Company, or its workings and prospects, will always be cheerfully given at the Office. If you like our straightforward plan of doing business, or feel any preference for a Company which certainly means work, we should be pleased to hear from you at once, as a very large part of the stock is already engaged.
