Some thirty days ago a few busi
ness men of Fort Worth, Texas, or
ganized and founded a joint tock
Association called the Equitable Oil
Co., of Ft. Worth Texas. These
men purchased the most proven ac
reage in Texas' largest oil field. The
"Desdemona Field." Their object
was to get a lease where the -chance
of not finding oil was eliminated,
which they did. They decided to drill
two wells, and upon the' completion
of these wells to sell the entfre com
pany to one of the large corporations
who make it a business to buy pro
duction only. The entire proceeds of
this sale s to be divided equally be
tween the stockholders of this com
pany as per each individual share,
As soon as this company was organ
ized sixty per cent of the stock ,was
' 1 .
subscribed by the directors and their
friends and since then fifteen per
cent has been subscribed from all
parts ofthe country from people
who know the holding of the com
pany and the men behind it. .
The company now has the remain
ing twenty-five per cent which they
are offering ihe people of Christian
county. They have let the contract
for the first well which is now drill
ing, and are now waiting on the sale
of the remaining stock to begin
.drilling on the second." The holdings
of this company where they are now
drilling arc entirely surrounded by
big producers of not less than 1800
barrels per day and some as high as
8,000 barrels per day. ' -
Oil wells sell on a basis of one mil
lion dollars per thousand barrels. No
company surrounding tliis' well has
sold for less than two million dollars.
This company has a capitalization of
$100,000. If they should only get a
thousand barrels in each of their
wells every stockholder would re
ceive twenty dollars for each dollar
invested. This stock is selling for
$2.00 per share, will advance " to
$3.00 December 21,"l919. Use your
own judgment and get in. Even if
you have only fifty or one hundred
dollars to invest. You can't get n
fortune on that small an investment,
but you can get a good start towards !
one. Figure it out (twenty to one
on your money.)
The officers of this company are
above reproach and bear the reputa
tion of handling other people's mon
ey as they would their own. Any
bank in Fort Worth will testify to
this. Ninety per cent of the wells in
the Desdemona Field are big produ
cers and one hundred per cent of the
wells in their vicinity are producers,
Doesn't this sound and look like a
seasonable invectment? A man has
so much to gain and so little to lose.
So we think, and we are sure you
will think so, too. This stocK Is" go
ing to advance on Dec. 21, 1919 to
$3.00 per share. So get in now. If
they only get one thousand barrels
in their first well, they will already
have made $10 on the $1 invested.
They expect their well in by New
Years. Get in and help share in this
gift of Nature. If yon are in any
way interested, phone, write or mail
your check. , '
