AMERICAN JEWISH RELIEF
COMMITTEE. the Jewish monitor The terrible persecution which has combined with the privations result ing from the war has created a crisis in the suffering of more than six mil lion Jews in Poland and other Eastern European countries. Approximately two million dollars a month are now being expended in the effort to pro vide adequate relief. As Boon as it pos sible to send supplies into Russia these expenditures will have to be enormously increased. The most stren uous efforts must be made to raise additional funds if the great under taking of saving the stricken Jewisli populations in these areas is to be tarried on. In ithis tragic crisis it is gratifying to note that the funds that have al ready been received in 1919 as a result of the state wide non-sectarian cam paigns conducted by the American Jewish Relief Committee. In January Louisiana raised over $400,000 and of this sum over $360,000 has already been received in cash. A similar cam paign in the state of Arizona in Feb ruary resulted in a contribution of $55,000 which has been paid in almost in full. Aa a result of the state cam paign in Kansas, which took place in March, almost $150,000 has been ac tually received by Mr. Arthur Leh man, treasurer of the National com mittee .As a result of a campaign In South Dakota, $50,000 was raised of which more than half has been paid in. State campaigns have just been concluded in Texas, Kentucky and South Carolina. Of the $500,000 rais ed in Texas, more than half is already in in cash and upwards of $200,000 has been sent in to national headquar ters. In Kentucky $230,000 was raised, the greater part of it in cash. One ot the most remarkable records is that of South Carolina where $140,000 was raised although the quota of the state was $100,000. Of this sum $105,000 was received in cash and has already been remitted to national headqupart ers. A state wide campaign is just now reaching its conclusion in Arkansas. In 1917 Arkansas raised $13,881.32. In 1918 receipts from the entire stat amounted to $45,365.20. In the present campaign over $100,000 has already been subscribed. The chairman of th Arkansas Committee is Mr. Ike Kcmjl ner. The drive has been thoroughly non-aectarian in all its aspects Jew and non-Jews co-operating to saw the lives of starving people. In this connection it may be an nounced that $4,000 has been received from Utica, New York, as one of th payments upon the Utica War Chest allotment. Many of the important industrial states in the country have already agreed to conduct state campaigns early in the fall, among them are In diana, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Ne braska, Virginia and Rhode Island. In this way it is hoped that the thirty five million dollars which is the quota of the American Jewish Relief Com mittee in 1919 may be raised on be half of the stricken population SUMMER AGRICULTURAL COURSE.

COPLIN, Proprietor WHAT IS an OIL ROYALTY SHREWD INVESTORS now recognize the fact that Oil Royalties offer the safest and S2n vS?!?,?? Il12X?2.t,nent in the oil industry and offer also speculative profits. THE ORIGIN OF THE WORD "ROYALTY" dates back to the time when the king's in terest was a certain part of what was produced from the land, to be deliverd to him or his agents free and clear of any expense; in other words, a "Royalty" for the use of the land. A royalty is the amount of oil paid to the owner of the land by the oil company which is developing the property, as rental for the land. It is usually the custom for the oil company p&v fx1 S!SlS!C,onMi,rhth of a11 the oil Produced on the land, FREE OF ALL COST 1U KUYALTY OWNER. The oil company must, therefore, pay all the expenses of drill ing the wells, building pipe lines, erecting the storage tanks to take care of the oil, and all other expenses. The land owner (r rovalty owner) receives his CHECK ONCE A MONTH for his part of the oil. r HOW DO WE ARRANGE TO GET ROYALTIES? When oil is first discovered on a farm (or some times before it is discovered) the owner can usually be persuaded to sell a part interest, for a certain amount of money paid to him in advance. By.keping a part inter est in the royalty he is playing safe, as in case of there being more oil on the farm than he anticipated, he will get his share according to the interest he retains, as well as an amount of money in advance usually sufficient to make him independent for life. From time to time we sell royalty intersts as small as $100.00 UNITS, and if you would be interested in knowing of our propositions, write us and we will put you on our mailing list.
