The Small Investors Real Opportunity to Invest
to Invest a Small Amount and Realize Large Returns Quickly and Permanently. The great Desdemona Texas Oil Field is now recognized as one of the largest and most profitable oil fields in the world. Oil is one of the world’s greatest necessities today and must continue to be for many years to come. The demand is constantly growing, and the supply is insufficient to meet the demand. The Texas Queen Oil & Gas Co. is NOT a stock speculating proposition, but is a real, business-like, earnest effort to get oil in the world’s best oil field. This company issues no preferred stock. All stock par ticipates alike. No salaries paid to any officers! We are in this proposition for one purpose —TO GET OIL! Speculation is no part of our program. Our holdings are adjacent to the biggest oil producers in the Texas Wonder Fields. OUR HOLDINGS IN THE OESDEMONA Figr^ Texas Queen Oil k Gas Co. We own Four Choice Tracts, as you will see by the map to the left. Five acres in the Desdemona field—Eastland County, Texas—“Hog Town” neighborhood. There are NO DRY HOLES IN THIS FIELD! This is where we have let a contract to drill our first well. It is one mile north of the Lizzie Queen, now producing 8,600 bar rels a day. A half-mile northwest of the Dabney 3,600-barrel well, and is ENTIRE LY surrounded by many other large pro ducing wells. Two other 5-acre tracts of ours are entirely surrounded by five big producing wells, and our other 10-acre tract is midway between the Desdemona and Ranger pools, which expert oil men say is the meeting point of the Desdemona and Ranger pools, thereby making this tract wonderfully valuable. Tos Queen Right in the midst of biggest produc tion! $10 a share, fully paid—non assessable.
