Shares of treasury stock were placed on the market less than two weeks ago, and since that time prudent investors from all over the United States have been buying heavily. One man out in West ern Kansas today who made big money on the stock of the Pub lishers' Oil company put in $1,200 in the Uncle Sam company at straight 4 cents per share.

The stock will never remain at 4 cents long; it is bound to advance to at least 15 or 20 cents in the next four months. Tou can buy ten thousand shares by sending draft or check at once for $400. Work On the Refinery Has Already Commenced. The first stakes for the refinery were driven at 2:30 sharp last Wednesday, or in Just two weeks after the company was organized. At that time the managers had enough money prom ised so they were safe in going ahead. Teams are now hauling brick onto the ground and other work will be pushed with all , due haste, as the Uncie Sam jpompany desires to place the re fined oil on the market not later than June. Will Commence Building Big Storage Tanks at Once. The Uncle Sam company will have work commenced on big twenty thousand barrel storage tanks almost by the time this paper reaches its readers. The company will build and equip close to three hundred thousand barrel capacity storage tanks in the next six months. The managers have been in telegraphic communication with several big steel tank concerns in the East for the last week. Tba time for any man to buy stock in this company is before the machinery gets onto the grounds and additional oil lands are secured. The managers of the Uncle Sam company are practical oil men and are going at things from a practical standpoint. Not one cent will be wasted, because the men at the helm of this company are oil men; they represent and control one of the greatest oil producing companies in the oil belt, and the Uncle Sam company almost by the time this reaches you will be In control of another large producing com pany. The refinery company is building solid we will own the oil lands, drill the wells, own our own tank cars, and from the one thousand feet from under the ground this company will bring forth the oil and carry it through the different stages until it will be burning in your lamp. The Uncle Sam company is the greatest refinery company ever launched in the Central West, and it will grow stronger every hour. Why not help yourself and this company, too, by putting in from $40 to $1,000 while the stock is selling at cost, and be one of the ground floor men? Splendid 20-acre Refinery Site With Valuable Water Rights. The Uncle Sam company placed on record over ten days ago a warranty deed for one of the most valuable refinery sites in the oil fields. The company also secured the water rights on a large body of never failing water adjoining the twenty-acre tract, and will have all the company, will need in the refining of oil. If you have $2,000 or $3,000 you wish to invest with a company that will surprise the world with its rapid growth, come down and go out and look the company's property over. The Passing of the Anti-Discrimination Bill Means Gold Dollars to the Uncle Sam Company. There is close to $5.50 per barrel profit in refining oil at the present prices a 250-barrel refinery at the prices that are being paid by the consumer at present would earn close to $1,400 per day. The Uncle Sam company, however, expects to cut the pres ent high price right in two, and the large number of stockholders it already has, and with the strength and support of the Pub lishers' stockholders, will be able to secure and maintain a good market for all the refined oil the company can put out. The anti-discrimination bill affords absolute protection to the Uncle Sam company, and makes this stock worth right now more than double the price being asked. Remittances Coming in From Every Corner of the United States. Since the first announcement of the Uncle Sam company ap peared in the newspapers about ten days ago. the letters have been coming in by the basketfuls; stock has been ordered by wire, men are coming in on every train until right tonight there are deals now pending for three times as much stock as the com pany will sell fit the ground floor price of 4 cents per share. Why should you delay and let this stock get out of your reach? The managers of this company are in telegraphic communication with over 100 men and they are investors, too, who may take all this stock any day between the rising and the setting of the sun. There is no business on earth that will pay as well as the refining of oil. It is a question of raising sufficient capital, and you can bet your old hat that the managers of the JJncle Sam company will get the money together, and in short order, too. In two weeks over $40,000 has been rounded up. The company will raise at least $50,000 more right off, then watch this stock go up to- about two times this 4-cent price.

From Cherryvale Daily News, March 1, 1905. . n , I First independent oil refinery in the field in which We vJCL ci rCclllieiJ i the public is asked to participate. Site purchased, machinery ordered, dirt flying, stock selling and work being rapidly pushed. Yesterday evening the management of the Uncle Sam Re finery and Developing company, of Cherryvale, closed a deal whereby it secured a splendid tract of twenty acres and valuable concessions for the site on which to build its refinery plant and work has already commenced on the construction of suitable buildings preliminary to receiving the necessary machinery, for which rush orders have been placed. The site lies just west of the Catholic cemetery, about one mile southwest of the city limits, and lies along the right-of-way of the Southern Kansas line of the Santa Fe. The tract was secured from N. F. Veeder, who has taken great interest in this, as he always has in every matter that was for the upbuilding of Cherryvale and her in terests. In parting with this valuable tract of land for the pur pose Mr. Veeder again showed that public spiritedness that has ever characterized him. The plant will have a capacity of from 250 to 300 barrels daily and is expected to be in full operation early in the sum mer. The men behind the movement are the same who made the Publishers' Oil company, of Cherryvale, a dividend-paying proposition In less than one year, and that they made n. success is proven by the fact that stockholders of the Publishers' are now the heaviest takers of stock in the Uncle Sam Refinery com pany. This new industry means much to Cherryvale and will add materially to the wealth of this city. The Uncle Sam re finery will be conducted along the same strict business lines that made the Publishers' Oil company such a marvel of success, and as the stock will be owned largely by the same stockholders and the affairs managed by the same oflicers, it too will be a paying, successful enterprise, and bids fair to develop into one "of the greatest stock companies In the land. Not since the great Edgar zinc smelters were located here has there been a more promising event in the history of Cherryvale than the locating of the Uncle Sam Refinery and Development company. The company will have over $2,000,000 back of it before the end of the year. That the popular subscription to the stock meets with favor is con clusively proven by the letters and telegrams that come pouring into the company office every day. Then here's to the success of the Uncle Sam Refinery and Development company, of Cherryvale! n TUCKER, JR ecretary, CHERRYVALE, KANSAS. : ijjMij 1 'im j a SI f: n 1 1 1 .,i.n m 1 14 til n - ( i 1 1 1 m ini b V Proposed Uncle Sam Refinery Now Under Construction at CherryvaSe. jess 'Kg 3E E2 J'3 SAFE BLOWERS HELD.

Assistant City Attorney Reitz of Kan sas City defended the men. County Attorney Hungate and his assistant. J. R. McXarj' conducted the prosecution. Fourteen witnesses were placed on the stand. The main testimony against the men was the following of foot prints leading from the robbed store to the boarding house of Rube Rand- lett at Seventh and Jefferson streets, where the four were found asleep. It was stated by the officers, how ever, that tracks of but two men were found, and from this standpoint Mr. Reitz argued that it would not be right to hold these four men. unless it could be proven which ones if any were guilty. Judge McCabe said that some of them at least were implicated and for that reason he would bind them over to the district court for trial. None of the men gave bond and they were put back into the county jail. Tlie Colonel's Waterloo. Colonel John M. Fuller ot Honey Grove Tex., nearly met his Waterloo from liver and kidney trouble.

The President Makes It Apply to the I-and Office: Washington, March 11. The president has recently promulgated several amendments to the civil service rules, and their general effect is to increase the scope of what is known as the com petitive service. By the most import ant of these amendments inspectors of surveys generally and district land of fices, and special agents of the general land office ere hereafter to be appoint ed only after an examination.
