Of 140 Feet.
The shallowest oil territory yet dis
covered In Texas, where five and ten
barrels can be had at from 140 to 160
feet with the cost of drilling and
casing only JIM per well, is the claim
made for Zapata county, southern
Texas, by B. W. Hale, of El Paso, who
has just returned from that section
and Laredo, Texas, where he had been-
for the past two months. Mr. Hale
said there are IS of these wells of
the depth named and they are so dis
tributed that they substantially prove
an area of about 5000 acres. SO miles
southeast of Laredo and about 15
miles farther eastward than the Texas
company's gas wells, one of which
can produce 30,000,000 cubic feet of
gas and which supplies the town of
Labor with that useful fuel.
"I was surprised to know there
was such a shallow oil field in Texas,"
continued Mr. Hale, "and I am very
sure no ereat number of people know
of It. The IS wells were put aown

a bran new standard rig at the Hebb

ake An Investment
The time for SPECULATING in the OIL BUSINESS is past.
It is true that most of the oil propositions offered by legitimate
promoters during the past few months have been good invest
ments. One of the most successful of these was the EOYAL
DUKE OIL CO. '
The same men who organized this
successful oil company are now offer
ing investors an opportunity to buy
stock at par in a great refining enter
prise. Never in the history of the world
was there such a demand for this in
dustry as now, and naturally, the
profits to be earned in such business
When one considers that it was nec
essary to close down the production
in a comparatively new oil field re
cently because there were no means
of taking care of the oil, and when
one further considers that there ex
ists a demand throughout the world
today for refined petroleum that is
impossible to meet, one can readily
realize the soundness, the logic, the
safety offered in the refining busi
nessand especially one managed
by EXPERIENCED men, who have
already enough production of
THAI K, own to keep the plant busy.
To be certain of getting stock in the Royal-Duke Refining Company at
par, $1.00 per share, it is necessary to place your order early. '"When 100,
000 shares are sold and this stock is selling beyond our fondest expecta
