of the Holy Comfort, at the western
end of the canal. There are eighty
lepers in the mission, of whom twelve

no precautions except that I do not

THE WHOLE SOUTHWEST IS IN A WILD RUSH FOR
SILVER CYCLE AT $1.50
Read below the reasons why bankers, hard-headed business men and the wise heads everywhere arc wiring
in thousands of dollars to our offices for this wondeiful stock. Silver Cycle joins Golden Cycle. Is in Block 75
with Summitt Petroleum, 200 yards from United Oil. Half mile from Burk-Waggoner. Three wells will be sunk
in Block 75. Right up among the big gushers in Northwest Burkburnett. Silver Cycle owns over 500 acres
in the different fields. The capitalization is only $150,000. This is "Lucky" Smith's supreme triumph
J. A. D. Smith, the man who drilled the second well at Burkburnett, and who never yet drilled a dry hole.
The same man who is back of Ocean, which we believe will be another great gusher. These mighty achieve
ments stamp J. A. D. Smith the "plumed knight" of the Oil World. Our hats are off to him. If you are wait
ing for a better investment than this, don't come to us. We will never have a better one.
The announcement that SILVER CYCLE will be
listed on the El Paso stock exchange at $3.00 on June
17th doesn't mean that you can buy it at $1.50 up to
that time. From the way wires arc coming into our-'
offices for reservations we expect every share to be
gone in the next few hours. We can fill your orders
though if anybody can. Use the attached telegram
at our expense; but, FOR GOODNESS SAKE,

34,900 Acres Patented Land to Lease
r 7 "V
Arrangements have just been perfected with one of the largest land owners in Northern Arizona whereby I
am able to offer to the public, at a very reasonable pi ice and on liberal terms, 34,900 acres of very desirable
land located in the Holbrook oil field, and which is but twelve miles from Holbrook. Every acre of this large
. tract is owned and controlled by the party agreeing to lease the mineral right, and every acre is oil land, accord
ing to the reports of geologists reporting on this field.
To the man or woman who desires to make a sound and conservative investment in what is most likely to be
come the world's greatest oil field, no better opportunity is offered, for by leasing the mineral rights to a tract
of this desirable property you are given absolute control of all the oil and mineral rights belonging to the land
for a period of two years;, during which time no assessment work or expenses of any other nature is required
to hold your absolute rights.
LIBERAL CONDITIONS OF LEASE
For the sum of $1.50 per acre you will be given a TWO-YEAR LEASE covering all mineral and oil rights
possessed by the land leased, less but a one-eighth royalty to be retained by the present owner. The lease will
remain in full force and effect as long after the expiration of two years as oil is produced in commercial quan
tities, WITHOUT FURTHER CONSIDERATION, excepting the one-eighth royalty..
. This proposition is far superior, as an investment, to government lands held by oil locations, by reason of the
fact that no assessment work is necessary during the life of the lease. A few dollars invested in this proposition
may net you a fortune.
