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. Subscription, Price 50 Cents per Share, Full Paid. PRESIDENT :
General WILLIAM HALL, Of William Hall & Son. TREASURER : F. A. WHITING, Of F. A.
Whiting & Co. SECRETARY : JOEL W. STEARNS, Of Stearns & Beale.Company's Office,
