"Hercules of The
Southern Oil Fields"
The American Oil and Refining Company makes this Announcement to invite
you to carry out the purposes suggested in its title THE DEVELOPMENT AND
REFINING OP OIL IN THE SOUTH.
Investors in oil stocks want SAFETY. They look to see who are at the head of
an enterprise, what its assets are and then make up their minds if it is a safe invest
ment for their money. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE WANT YOU TO DO
TODAY, AS YOU BEAD THESE LINES.
It is self-evident that Negotiable Value is of prime importance in offering oil
stock to the public. The American Oil & Refining Company has looked to this.
It Offers You Present Production of 2,000 Barrels
It offers more. Besides our -well in Block 74, N.- W. Burkburnett, with 2,000 bar
rels production, connected with pipe line, and now delivering oil, another is now drill
ing on Black 97, on our 2-acre tract, where production is as certain as the setting
sun. CONSIDER OUR HOLDINGS.
The HUMAN ELEMENT in all transactions is equally important with the na
ture of the property involved, and our first thought must concern the men at the helm
of a new company. The officers and trustees of AMERICAN OIL AND REFIN
ING COMPANY are men chosen for their grasp of business affairs, absolute loyalty
and integrity and general understanding of the best interests of the shareholders.
The public shall be the judge as to whether proper selections have been made. YOU
KNOW MOST OF THESE MEN AND HAVE HAD DEALINGS WITH THEM.
They are the ones you may confidently look to, not only for a square deal, but to con
stantly safeguard your interests, after you have become our stockholders.
