Oil Rules the Industrial Wiirld—Refineries Rule The Old World
GET INTO A SOUND COMPANY. INVESTIGATE
TEXAS EAGLE PRODUCING & REFINING CO.
10,000 Bbl. Refinery In Process of -Construction Controls Over 60,000 Acres In The
Great Oil Areas of Texas and Mexico
COMPANY NOW HAS PRODUCTION IN DESDEMONA & BURK-WAGONER
CAPITAL $2,500,000 PAR $10.00
REFINERIFS MAKE SURE PROFITS
when adequate crude is supplied. We have production of our own and have closed contracts
assuring plenty of erude oil to keep our refinery busy for years to come. Refining profits are not
dependent upon chance—no dry holes are drilled—your money remains above ground—in tangible
assets. A 10,000-barrel refinery such as we have in course of construction at Fort Worth, makes,
as average experience demonstrates nine million dollars yearly and pays at least 100 per cent
dividends.
; 'Q
OUR REFINERY GROUNDS
We have purchased 190 acres at Interlock, adjoining the Magnolia tank farm. Our land is crossed
by the natural gas main, three railroads and atar paved boulevard and we are within the switch
ing limits of Fort Worth. Seventeen railroads and 49 pipe lines center at Fort Worth. Eighty
per cent of the oil of Texas and a good deal of the oil and gas of Oklahoma pass on rails or
through pipe lines close to our refinery.. The oil industry of the southwest now centers at Fort
Worth. Here we will always have ample crude and free access to all lines of transportation by
land and sea. Reasonable judgment would seem to forestall permanent success here.
