I have thoroughly tested the new "National Revolver," and find it an effective weapon, of sore fire and convenient size. At fifty yards, I think I could with this Pistol kill at every shot. I take pleasure in recommending it as a weapon in every way desirable. In company with Capt. Scott, Provost-Marshall, and other officers, I fired this pistol a large number of times, and not one cartridge failed to explode. (Signed)   JOHN CHARLESTON, Chief of Police, Cairo, Ill. We have one of the " National Revolvers" now in use, and pronounce it one of the most perfect things of the kind we ever saw. It is simple in construction, substantial, sure fire, and shoots with the force and accuracy of a rifle. Any one in want of a good and reliable weapon can not do better than procure a "National Revolver." (Signed)   . J. S. VINCENT, Editor and Proprietor " New Era." We, the undersigned, having used and thoroughly tested the National Revolvers, have no hesitancy in saying that, for accuracy, force, and convenience, we think they are far superior to any other Revolver yet produced.

REV. EDWARD A. WILSON,

Williamsburgh,

Kings County, New York.

LITTLE KANAWHA AND ELK RIVER Petroleum and Mining Company. SUBSCRIPTIONS TO BE CLOSED.

Cash Working Capital, $150,000. Officers : OLIVER E. WOOD, President. JAMES CRUIKSHANK, Vice-President. CHARLES J. MARTIN, Treasurer. JAMES WADSWORTH, Secretary. E. R. BLACKWELL, Consulting Engineer and General Superintendent. Trustees : PAUL N. SPOFFORD, of Spofford, Tileson & Co., New York. CHARLES J. MARTIN, President Home Insurance Co., New York. Hon. ROGER AVERILL, Danbury, Conn. Hon. ALBERT Z. CATLIN, Burlington, Vt. JAMES CRUIKSHANK, 55 Broadway, New York. OLIVER E. WOOD, 26 Barclay Street, New York. JAMES WADSWORTH, of James Wadsworth & Co., (61 Cedar Street, New York. JOHN W. STRONG, Detroit, Mich. EDWARD M. MORGAN, 2 Pine Street, New York. The subscription is so nearly completed that it is intended to close the same on or before the 12th of February. Subscriptions, $750,000, of which $600,000 purchases the land to wit, 62,860 acres. The remaining $150,000 is the permanent cash working capital of the Company. Capital stock, $6,000,000. Par value of shares, $100. Subcribers to this purchase will receive eight shares of stock for each one hundred dollars subscribed. Lands located on the Little Kanawha and Elk Rivers, in the counties of Gilmer and Braxton, in the very heart of the oil regions of West Virginia. Professor Richardson reports: "Your property is the very centre of the West Virginia oil regions. It has numerous oil and gas springs along the banks of its streams, one of which vies with the famous ' Burning Spring' itself."

Professor Shepherd, of New Haven, Conn., reports : "I consider it eminently oil-producing land. The oil bearing shales underlie it extensively, and the long lines of carburetted hydrogen, or illuminating gas springs, some of which I saw burning, as well as the appearance of oil itself on the surface of the tract, fully confirms me in this belief. " There can be no doubt that along your creeks and tributaries there is a large extent of valuable oil producing territory. The prodigious amount of bituminous and cannel coal, iron ore, limestone, and fire clays embodied in the high hills on your property, the tops and slopes of which are covered with an extraordinary growth of white oak and other heavy timbers, add immensely to its value." These views are fully indorsed by the reports of the most practical and experienced men from the oil districts of both Pennsylvania and Virginia. The Company consider themselves fortunate in having secured the services of Mr. Blackwell, a practical civil engineer, for the general superintendency, so well known as the late Chief Engineer and Superintendent of the " Commissioners of Washington Heights," New York City. Arrangements are in rapid progress for the immediate development of the property on a scale commensurate with its value and extent. Subscriptions payable at the time of subscribing, or one half in cash, the balance in thirty days from the time of closing the subscription, can be made in person or by letter at the office of the undersigned, No. 61 Cedar Street, New York ; J. K. DOBSON, No. 42 Site Street, Boston ; and JOHN W. STRONG, Detroit, Michigan, where full information can be obtained. JAMES WADSWORTH & CO., No. 61 Cedar Street, New York. Great Imperial Watch.
