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.

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
