Come to Us
Let outside parties gobble up all the choise
leases in your County. _ You, as a citizen owe
your confidence to the development of Ne
vada County. Why will you expect out
side parties to invest, and you sit back and
buy nothing. Be a booster for your home
town and county and buy a lease now,
while you can afford it. Don’twait until a
well comes in, for then only the big fellows
can buy and you will be poorer than ever.
