R£Tl “OIL INVESTMENTS” KNOCK? mmm m W | MONEYTALKS I It is indeed true that the Oil Fields of Wyoming, Kan- I sas, Oklahoma and Texas, owe their development and phenomenal success to the fact that the I people the country over, bought the stock offered by the many Companies organized in those I localities, and the records show that the people of Colorado and Gunnison County, have sent I II large sums of money to the fields mentioned above. I || Should you invest half of the amount that you sent to the foreign fields, in your local Com-1 || pany, it would insure the sinking of at least two deep wells in the Ohio Creek Valley, from I || which you would benefit financially, besides making your town and County a better and bigger 1 1 | place to live in. || Remember that whatever money you may invest in the stock of this Company, goes to the I || actual drilling, as all the preliminary expense, as well as timber, tools and all necessary machinery | II has been bought and paid for, by the members of the Company, without any public support, I S 1 which shows our faith in the possibilities f Infnrmatinn rounon I | Subscription Coupon | of the Gunnison Count y Oil Field.
