The Man-of-Affairs
Investment Plan
The lime of most
men of affairs is great
ly taxed by the demands I
of business.
And yet successful
investing is a matter
which requires much
time and attention.
For want of time for
investigating proffered
investments, studying
the trend of markets,
p r o m p tly collecting
coupons and other in
vestment returns and
re-investing them, many
are obliged to be satis
fied with a smaller net
profit on investments
than is necessary.
The "Equitable Trust
Plan" is an ideal 'In
vestment Plan for men
of affairs. The time
given for its investiga
tion will be amply re
warded.
We will be glad to

subject. Are you receiv- 1 1

you asked for the book- j

Hundreds Have Been Made Independent
From Natural Gas
i «• *
This Is Your Opportunity
Since LARGE POOLS OF NATURAL GAS have been dio«overe<J under the city of McKeesport, Penna., and
vicinity, hundreds of the people of that district have been made independently rich from investing in wells that
drilled and which struck gas. Natural gas is used in the homes for illuminating, heating and cooking purposes. The
steel mills and factories use the product for operating purposes. There is a great demand for natural gas and the
supply is far from being sufficient. Natural gas is retailed to the consumer at 37 cents per thousand cubic feet aga nst
$1.00 and more per thousand feet of manufactured gas in other cities.
The Industrial Clerks Association has three leases and purposes to drill three wells in the very near future. The
firm is capitalized at $90,000. The stock is offered at $50 a share. Each share of stock entitles the holder to
tcrest in the three wells. The company is co-partnership—ncn-assessable. Stockholders get earnings according to the
production of the wells. If one or two gushers are struck out of the three wells to be drilled the earnings to the
stockholders will be enormous.
If one well only should bring in gas on the basis of 2 2,000,000 cubic feet every 24 hours, each share of stock
would earn $163.50 monthly. The Weil Brothers' well and the Fischer No. 4 came in 10 days ago, one well produc
ing 18,000,000 cubic feel every 24 hours and the other at the rate of 22,000,000 every 24 hours. (These wells are
not lo be compared with the Foster well, which brought in gas last Fall at the rate of 54,000,000 cubic feet every 24
hours.) The Industrial Clerks Association lease No. 1, where the first well will be sunk, is between the Weil Bros.,
and Fischer No. 4—200 feet from the first well and 300 feet from the other
