If you doubt that the refinery work as above stated is commenced, send a stamped envelope to Mr. To Sscsre Soas of This Valuable Stock ia This Fcrfcna Making Enterprise at SI BSTANTIAL GKOWIX KXTEIUMUSE. 1M YOU WANT YOUR T IXVKSTMEXT TO GROW WITH IT? The Uncle Sam Oil Company today is a strong manufacturing enterprise. The refinery No. 1, at Cherryvale. now in successful operation, would in time complete both main trunk pipe line and refinery No. 2 on the banks of navi gation, so when you buy this stock you are not buying hot air or joining a wind jamming concern, as a few jealous, blackmailing hirelings of the oil trust would have you believe, but you are getting value received and securing stock that has a future stock that cannot help but steadily advance as the work goes forward and with pipe line and second refinery completed will command a market value of $1.00 per share. The company is following safe melhode; is doing what it promised, and now that it can soon commence paying dividends the balance of the stock will sell readily at from 20 cents to a half dollar per share. This 20-cent price oftered herein is not going to last forever don't think that you can delay about sending in your remit tance and buy this stock at this price in ten days or two weeks if you do you are very liable to got left, for the stock is going the work will be crowded and the value of the stock increased. THHEK-FOl IITIIS OF TIIK STOCK IS SOLD. The Uncle Sam Company has over 5.000 STOCKHOLDERS. They repre sent every state and territory in the Union, also Canada and Old Mexico. These stockholders are working for the company every day remittances are received from some stockholder who has secured an order for some of the stock from a friend. Resides this, hundreds of the stockholders have been on the ground and are doubling and trebling their holdings. The stock offered herein will soon be sold. The wires will be ticking orders for the stock before some sleepyheads realize what is offered them. Think of stock in a com pany with the strength and backing of the Uncle Sam Oil Company at 20 cents on the dollar. Such conditions will not last long. The stock is worth 40 cents per share right today and with a few more miles of pipe line on the ground and a few more car loads of refinery material on the banks of the Missouri at Atchison, and that will be what you will pay for it, too. You can get 5,000 shares today for $1,000. It will cost you twice this in ninety days. DIVIDKXDS WILL COMMEXCE JUNE 20. Rend over the advertisements of the Uncle Sam Oil company and you will see that it keeps its promises makes good, so to speak, and it will con tinue to do this. If you don't think so, put up some money on the wager that this company does not pay a handsome dividend on all stock issued and out standing on the 20th of next June and see how quick you lose it. On the other hand, if you have some money bringing 3 per cent, in a bank that is liahle to burst any day, send it down and take a few thousand shares of this stock. Secure property that will earn dividends for your children after you are gone. Ripe lines, refineries and oil wells are valuable they are not going to run away they will make money while you sleep. No reason on earth why this stock will not go to par of $1.00 per share and pay large dividends. At any rate, the company knows what it can do it has the oil the refinery is in successful operation- Uncle Sam oil wagons will reach out farther every day until the company will patrol the entire state the profits in oil refining, as everyone knows, are large if you want part of them you can get them by purchasing some of this stock, and you will get a dividend check on June 20. From then on the. big river refinery will be completed, and if with the one refinery we can pay dividends, what can we do with the big one added to it? Let reason reign and line up with a really good, energetic enterprise once by securing some of this stock before it goes to a half dollar per share. WK CONTROL OUR OWN OIL TERRITORY. The Uncle Sam Company can soon produce oil enough to furnish a 5,000 hnrrel refinery for .twenty-five years from lands owned or controlled by the company. The company has the goods back of it. From 1,000 to 1,600 feet under the ground this company will, by pumping the oil from its own wells and through pipe lines and refinery and over barges, will be able to reach the great population of the Missouri vaiiey until it is burning in their lamps and under their furnaces.

This Company Now Employs Over Forty Men. In the oil fields, at the refinery at Cher ryvale, in the oil sales department and on the pipe line, more than FORTY men are crowding the work of the Uncle Sam Oil company to completion. During the next six weeks this number of men will be in creased to over ONK HUNDRED. This company is doing things. An investment with it is bound to grow. Over 30.000 Acres of Oil Rights. In Labette. Montgomery, Klk and Chau tauqua counties and in the Indian Terri tory, the Uncle Sam Oil company holds oil rights on over 30,000 ACRES. Some of this territory is the most valuable pro ducing property in the oil fields. Con siderable of this territory is what oil men term very good. However, no one knows what is under the ground. these oil rights alone, when developed, may make tins company's stock worth five times wiiat it is now offered at. Have Drilled Two Wells That Started Out at Over One Thousand Barrels Per Day. On eleven hundred acre lot 43 in the Osage nation, near Bartlesville the com pany have completed three big welis. The first one drilled was estimated by disin terested parties as from fifteen hundred to two thousand barrels the-- first day. However, the writer of this can make af fidavit that it went considerably better than one thousand barrals the first day. Of course anyone knows these wells settle down to about one-eighth of what they do the first day or so. However, they are fortune-makers, just the same. How would you like to own even a fif ty barrel oiler? Well, the Uncle Sam company has been just fortunate enough to secure some of the cream of the oil fields. If you come down we can show you that this is correct, too. You can drill an oil well in deep territory on every four acres and they will last. In the "Kansas ter ritory they ought to have five acres. Fig ure for yourself what the Uncle Sam company can put on the THIRTY THOU SAND ACRES. Even though only one fifth of this territory is good oil produc ing territory, the output would still be enormous. Own Our Own Drills Do Our Drilling at Cost. The company owns four complete drill ing rigs. Does its drilling at cost. This is a long mark in its favor, and goer to prove that it is in the business to stay. Has Miles of Lateral Pipe Lines Com pleted. At Cherryvale the company has pipe line connections with over three-fourths of the weils in the Cherryvale oil fields. All of these things cost money runs into the thousands of dollars. They are paid for. though, and they are -a fixture for as sets back of this stock. Can Reach Over One Hundred and Fifty (150) Towns in Kansas. This company advertised on the start that within a year it would patrol Kan sas with its oil dist ributing waerons from border to border. Well, nine months have passed and today we can reach from our ma:n distributing station over ONK HUNDRED AND FIFTY KANSAS TOWNS. Own Our Own Tank Cars. The company owns ten TANK CARS and is securing more. Think of it! We have the oil from our own w-ells. have our own tank cars, have our own tank wagons and storage tanks, and about two thousand stockholders in Kansas demand ALF WERE BAD. Startling Results of l'ecent "Pure Food" Analyses. "Vile and Infamous" Says Dr. S. J. Crunibine. WHAT CAN BOARD 1)0 ? 31 ay Have to Await Another Session of Legislature. Some Topeka Specimens Are Under the Can. Attorney General Asked Direct Future Actions. to "Of the twenty manufactured food specimens sent J. T. Willard of the chemical department of the State Agricultural college and Professor E. H. S. Bailey of Kansas State university just one-half were found to contain preservatives, adulterations and color ing matters. Some of the Topeka specimens were caught, but they were not anything compared with several foreign foods. Two or thfree of the lat ter were simply vile and infamous." This statement was made this morn ing by Dr. S. J. Crunibine, secretary of the state board of health, who on De cember 21 turned over the following articles, purchased on the open mar ket, to be analyzed and examined for their puiity: Can of Old Home sor ghum, can of Canada maple sap, quart of pure cider vinegar and quart of white wine vinegar, put up by Otto Kuehne, of Topeka; Club house brand preserves, by Franklin, McBeach & Co., Chicago; Silver Leaf catsup, by Kuehne; Puritan brand extract of va nilla, by Edward Weston Tea and Spice Co., of St. Louis; Silver Leaf catsup and Silver Leaf horseradislu by Kuehne: Primrose extract of ba nana, by Parkhurst-Davis.

Dr. Crumbine. however, refused to give out the findings. "The matter is a very serious one," he said in ex planation of his attitude in that regard. Along the Missouri river The Uncle Sam Company will establish large storage tanks at the principal trade and distributing centers for South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Missouri, while at St. Louis, Uncle Sam Oil Boats can reach by water the markets of the world at a saving of freight rates which in itself would pay large interest on money invested in the stock of this company at present prices. Don't wait until Uncle Sam Oil wagons are patrolling the Missouri Valley states the same as they are in Kansas to day, and then expect to buy this stock under $2.00 per share. Combined capacity of both refineries, when fully completed, will be Five Thousand Four Hundred (5,400) barrels of crude oil daily. don, we refer you to T. R. Clendenin, President ot the Committee of Forty at Clendeiiin and find out for yourself. 20c on tfas Dollar, Remittances With Order Should ing that every merchant handle Uncle Sam oil. The facts are, tins company has pretty near a lead pipe cinch on the deal and is growing stronger every hour. It is anti-monopoly, bag and baggage, and is working for a square deal in good faith and is forcing the issue. Better join us while you can, at a priee that will make you good money. $200.00 will buy one thou sand shares. The Balance of the Stock Will Net the Company Over a Half Million Dol lars. While this company is strong today consider fur a moment what a half mil lion dollars more money placed in de veloping the different oil properties and completing the pipe lines and the big river refinery will do. When the stock is all sold there will be that much more cash back of the company. You are not joining any toy enterprise when you line up with Uncle Sam. You are securing stock that will be worth a dollar a share in a year, just as sure as you are a foot high. Large Distributing Stations Are Lo cated in the Following Big Kansas Towns on Owned or Leased Ground, as Follows: Pittsburg. Atchison, Leavenworth, To peka, Concordia, Wichita, Anthony, W'in fieid, Parsons and Palina. Grounds are secured and tanks shipped to part of the following places: Independence, Coffey ivile, Wellington and Hutchinson. While from Cherryvale a half dozen good towns are reached from doors of the refinery. Capacity of Cherryvale Plant Is 480 Panels Daily Now.

The company will ship two Car loads a day for the next ten days and then not catcti up. Sold 42,000 Gallons in One Day to One Man. This company can handle big orders. It has the goods and the equipment to put the refined oil on the market. Besides handling a large bnrrel trade and sup plying the big distributing stations, the company is getting in line with the big independent producers ail over the central west. One of the largest independent oil producers in Southwest Missouri pur chased FORTY-TWO THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-SIX GAL LONS in one dav of this oomnanv. FOURTEEN THOUSAND GALLONS OF THIS OIL WAS LOADED AND SHIP PED the next day after the sale was made. As before stated, this is not a, hot air company. We offer you value received in the stock of this company and you will reap big rewards if you are fortunate enough to secure some of the stock before it is all sold and work completed. Can Save 55 Cents a Barrel to Missouri River Points. The company can save. FIFTY-FIVE cents per barrel by pumping the oil over a main trunk pipe line to the Missouri river and then carrying it by barges to the different river points. This saving alone on the full capacity of the two re fineries, whfn fully completed, would pay over SEVEN per cent yearly on each share of , this stock. These are facts that can be proven and is one of the big rea sons the stock is in demand. One Rig Station Now in Operation in .Missouri. At St. Joseph, with over 125.0-TO popula tion and with the best railroad faciiit es poss'hle for Northern and Central Mis souri, the Uncle Sam company has a large "It" will be a matter cf considerable moment to place a public ban on cer tain manufactured food articles. For that reason I have dceided to go over all of the articles again this week with Professor Willard and Professor Bai lev. We have not yet settled on the date, but it will be the latter part of this week." "When will you give out the re port?" was asked. "That is very questionable," replied Dr. Crumbine. "There is an obscurity in the law on which I shall first have to have an opinoin from the attorney general. You will notice that the statute says that the chemical depart ments of the State university and the Agricultural college shall make ex aminations of different substances, that the board of health shall examine the reports of these chemical depart ments and shall then publish in the official paper all such foods, and the names of their manufacturers, which are found impure and injurious to health. What I am not certain about is just who has the authority to pub lish these reports, whether it lies with the men who make the examinations, whether with the board, or whether with me. "But a more important point is this, who shall decide whether the food is in jurious? We may find and have found adulterations, preservatives and coloring matters, none of which may do actual harm if taken in ordinary small quan tities. For instance we analyzed a can of maple syrup. On the can was a la bel which guaranteed that the material of which it is made is pure Canada sap. Our examination proved that there was not a drop of maple syrup in the whole can, but that it is all cane syrup, flavor ing and a little coloring matter. Now that syrup will probably not hurt any one to eat it. It may not be injurious. But it is the rankest kind of fraud. What are we going to do in an instance like that? We may have a can of pre served meat. To eat a small ordinary quantity may not hurt anyone. But take a working man who eats probably a small jar of it for his lunch, it being especially convenient for that purpose. It may hurt him seriously. The law is obscure and dim. It does not make itself plain. I shall put thse matters directly up to the attorney general and let him bear the responsibility. It raav be that we shall have 'to wait for another legis lature before we can ever make a re port on bad food products "ublic." A Tomb in the Arctic -A dramatic little story is told by the Dundee whalers, all of whom are now home safe from their perilous toil in the frozen seas of the far north. One day, when some of the crew of the Eclipse were visiting an Eskimo settlement in the vicinity of Dexterity bay, a native drew them by signs to a spot where stood a cairn of stone. Hastiiy. jmlling the roughly built structure to pieces they discovered first a Piece of matting and then the body of a man buried under the snow quite close to the surface and in an excellent state of preservation. That night, on the whaler, when the men told the discovery, one old sailor related that exactly 20 years ago a com rade of his had been buried somewhere in the district. The next day he went and saw the corpse and recognized it as that of his old-time messmate. London ilaiL distributing station. Other stations will be located in Sedalia, Jefferson City, Chillicothe and a number of other Mis souri cities. Big Station Will Be Established at Council Bluffs, Iowa. By having a shipping point in each state where the Uncle Sam company will es tablish stations, gives the company a great advantage keeps the oil-trust-owned railroads from robbing the company by criminal rebates under the guise of in terstate rates. From Council Bluffs this company will reach Iowa. From Omaha the Company will Reach Nebraska. The farther north you go the higher is the price of coal and the better markec for oil. From Omaha the company can reach the Nebraska, trade. The same ar rangements will be made in South Da kota. Will Be the Largest Refinery in Kansas. The largest refinery the oil trust has In Kansas is 2,500 barrels daily. The Uncle Sam company's big river plant, when fully completed, will have a daily capac ity of FOUR THOUSAND TWO HUN DRED (4,200) barrels daily. The first car load of machinery is now on the ground.

How We Will Pay Dividends on This Stock. A certain amount of the profits made from the Cherryvale refinery now in full operation will be set aside monthly to meet, a dividend in June. You will not have to wait for eternity to get returns from your investments when you buy this stock, and when the big river refinery i3 completed, which will oe by that time, the dividends will, of course, greaUy in crease The money raised from the sale of tfe balance of the stock will more than build the second refinery and com plete the main trunk pipe line and drill close to 100 more oilers. Can You Afford to Turn Down an In vestment in This Growing Enter prise ? As you will notice by the following quo tations on stock, so many shares, when sold, will pay for so many rods of main trunk pipe line... It is very important to complete this pipe line, and a special ef fort' will be made to have it completed by the time the big river plant is ready to receive oil. Of course, if the line is not entirely completed, tine company will us-e tank cars from the nearest railroad sta tion at the end of the Completed pipe line and make the pipe line a big payor from the word go every mile of pipe line com pleted knocks off that much freight. We think that we can certainly pay for TWENTY MILES of this pipe line each month, and we base our calculations on the results from the past, when the com pany was not one-hundredth as strong as today.

IN CONCLUSION. The charter name of this company is "The Uncle Sam Oil company." Its au thorized capitalization is TEN MILLION SHARES. Par value, one dollar each. Every share of stock draws the same amount of dividends as any other share. The officers of the company are James Ingersol, president; J. H. Ritchie, vice presi dent, and H. H. Tucker, jr., secretary and treasurer. These men also constitute the board of directors. All of the stock of the company has been sold for cash or its equivalent from the start. You cannot buy a single share from a single one of the above named officers under $1.00 per share; in fact, their stock is not for sale at any price. The management is the same now as in the beginning the old guard are in the traces working harder than ever. The stock is offered for sale and being sold to buy pipe line and machinery for the river refinery. When you invest for stock your money goes into the enterprise to make the very stock you buy more valuable. The. company is in touch wdth over TEN THOUSAND in vestors by special letter report. The announcement will appear in the principal and influential papers in the United States will be read by over TWENTY MILLION PEOPLE. The company is a straight, legitimate enterprise one that is already a far greater success than even the most enthusiastic expected on the start. Ref erences Montgomery County National bank. People's National bank and Cherry vale State bank, all of Cherryvale, Kan. The company has several pictures of the refinery at Cherryvale and different views of the oil fields which it will send with other information to investors who wish further information. Th company is so well advertised and has so many working for it that without a doubt the stork will soon be sold, and investors would do well to not delav in securing the stock vou want, as the company is one of great merit, and the priee of the stock, with the assets back of it, offers every man an investment that he must admit that is good, and far above the ordinary proposi tion. You will probably never have an opportunity again to invest with a com pany like this. It was born of necessity, on account of the black list by the thiev ing oil trust of certain producing properties in the Cherryvale oil fields. It is backed by infiuetial men in both state and nation, and if you join our band, now over five thousand strong, you will be treated fairly, and we sincerely believe will secure slock now at At cents per share, or one-fifth of its par value, that will go to par in less than a year. The company realizes that it must o'fer great invest ment and great inducements to raise money as fast as we need Jt, but will make it all back in a few months with main trunk pipe line and river refinery com pleted. We solicit your investment in good faith, and the statsments made here in we can back with proof. For further particulars, write or wire THE UNCLE SAM OIL COMPANY or H. H.

Thus a heavy load Is. raised from the spirit of the small boy, at least, some of the small boys who do not like to go to school. There was enough noise last night in connection with the entrance of 1906 upon the stage to have gone into competition with the dropping of a pin on a feather bed. The usual seance of nerve-tearing whistles, sleep destroying din and racket was notable for its absence. An occasional pop ping of a revolver on Kansas avenue was the whole sum and substance of it.
