Munro's Ten Cent Novel, No, 31,
ROLLING THUNDER; OR, THE RIVAL WAR CHIEFS. .
By George W. Robinson. This is a story of early life on
the banks of the Ohio. The combat between two rival tribes, headed by their
warlike chiefs, is described with a grandeur and interest that can not be
surpassed, and seldom equaled, while "Tipperary's" account of his love scrapes,
interspersed with the finest specimens of Irish wit, render this novel one of
the most laughable as well as one of the most exciting that can be imagined. The
following is a list of Munro's Ten Cent Novels, which are now the rage of the
country: No. 1. The Hunters. 2. The Trapper's Retreat. 3. The Patriot
Highwayman. 4. The Hunted Unionist. 5. The Track of Fire. 6. The Man-Eaters. 7.
Charlotte Temple. 8. The Death Face. 9. The Indian-Slayer. 10. The Tiger of the
Ocean. 11. The Hunter's Triumph. 12. The Ocean Rovers. 13. The Tory Outwitted.

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. Subscribers
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
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 per, on or by letter at the office of
the undersigned, No. 61 Cedar Street, New York ; J. K. DOBSON, No. 42 State
