' C Holdings of the Company mmmmmmmmmmmmn 1111111 iiiiiiiwiiimm Eighty Acres in the Great Ranger Field - This field has widened, spread and extended until it now takes in an immense productive territory extending for many miles in almost every direc tion. STEPHENS COIJNTY, part of the Ranger field, is the largest and best territory developed In Texas. , f THE COMPANY OWNS EIGHTY ACRES, less a one-fourth undivided in terest in STEPHENS COUNTY. It is the J. M. White farm, which Joins and offsets the THORPE FARMt on which the Sammies Oil Company recently brought in a well at a depth of 1,725 feet which the company reported flowed 1,400 barrels of oil per day. Thia well was drilled only two feet in the sand, aild should, when drilled deeper, show from 3,000 to 5,000 barrels per day. tiood wells are found In every direction from this property, and it is a safe bet that a strong flow of oil will be found in the 1,725-foot sand and also in the deeper sand which should be found at about 3,400 feet. WE HAVE MATERIAL FOR A DERRICK on the ground and a well on this property will be begun at once. Eighty-Two Acres in the Desdemona Field STRONGLY COMPETING with the Ranger field is the important field developed in and around the town of DESDEMONA, in Comanche, Erath and Eastland counties. ., , The Tex-O-Kan Petroleum Company owns a lease on Forty-nine Acres on the line between Erath and Comanche counties, about three miles south and slightly east of DESDEMONA, the land being a part of the Robinson survey. Immediately north of this property about one mile the Comanche Northern - Company brought in a well which was drilled eighteen inches in the sand at a depth of about 2,600 feet. This well is producing 3,000 barrels per day. It is believed that when drilled to a greater depth In the sand It will flow not less than 6,000 barrels of oil per day. The Company owns a lease on thirty-three acres off of the north side of tb.9, J. M. Watson farm, lying west and a little south of Desdemona, and I more nearly developed than any other property owned by the Company. :Tje, THIRTY-THREE ACRES is one-half mile In length. A large num ber of wells can be drilled on this property, protecting its own and draining adjoining territory. , THE FAMOUS WELLS on the Vought farm, lying about one and one fourth miles north and east of this property, drilled in by the Southland Oil Company and the Sterling Oil and Gas Company, are both estimated at 6,000 barrels per day, and other large wells to the north. The Comanche Gusher, on the Echols farm, lying to the east; the Kan-Tex well to the ffouth Is drilled ; into the sand and is reported showing for a large well and is waiting for tanks " and pipe lines. Wells completely surround our THIRTY-THREE acres. THE ABOVE THREE TRACTS, MAKING ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY TWO ACRES IN PROVEN TERRITORY WERE SECURED BY THIS COM PANY AFTER THE CHARTER WAS GRANTED BY' THE SECRETARY OF STATE. , ( In Addition To the Above This Company Has 5,p09 acres of leases in Caldwell County, Texas. While this territory is not fully proven,' wells were drilled years ago on what is believed to be the outer edges: of a well-defined structure, and these wells are today and have . been for a. number, of years standing filled with oil. , It is of good Quality, showing 36 gravity test and paraf fine base. , ' i , Now Drilling On This Property THE TEX-O-KAN PETROLEUM COMPANY 1s now drilling a well at the highest point, or apex, of this structure, and is confident that it will find oil. Oil sands in this territory are reached at about 650 feet, about 1,300 feet and about 1,650 feet. The geologists says the big sand will be found at about 2,400 . feet. .. ' '' ... , " . . 2,529 Acres in Wilson County, Kansas THIS IS IN THE HEART OF A GREAT oil and gas field already devel oped. This is iu what is known as shallow production, The property is sur rounded by paying, producing oil and gas wells. The first gas sand In this territory is found at 825 feet; the second gas sand at 635 feet. These sands have been very prolific of gas and profitable producers at these depths. The oil sands are found at about 730 feet and 900 feet. The Initial production in oil ranges from 10 to 250 barrels per day in this territory.. The Tex-O-Kan Petroleum Company's property ln Wilson County, Kan sas, is provcri oh all sides. On its own leased acreage not les than 500 wells can be drilled. If each well ahoilld produce the low average of five barrels of oil per day, this would give a total production of 2,500 barrels of oil per day, which would produce a dally income of $5,625.00 per day, or $2,053, ,1 25.00 per year, with oil at the present price. ; ' 1 Possibilities of a Well Managed Big Company It is safe to assert that no other industry in the world today offers such great possibilities of profits as the business of producing oil. The investing public is turning almost solidly to oil securities and are reaping rich and almost undreamed of profits. Ail essential ingredient of success, and, in fact, one of its prerequisites is capable business manage ment. . v . i i Luck may be a factor, but Pluck, Brains, Expe rience and Honesty will surely Win. The Tex-O-Kan Petroleum Company has at its head an experienced and capable oil man. Its officers and directors were selected for their well known abil ity and high character. Its properties are so favorably located, so closely surrounded with successful development, so alluring in their promise of great profits that we offer the stock of this company at $50.00 per share, feeling confident that the stockholder will have dividend paying invest ment within a short time. Those who have organized this company expect to develop it into a great, permanent, successful busi ness. If. only the smallest of its tracts in the Desde mona and Ranger fields should turn out to. be pro ducers it should be worth several million dollars. The possibility of profits on all of this vast acreage is too great for computation. THENORWOOD AND THE PERKINS WELLS LIE SOUTH AND EAST OF OUR EIGHTY ACRES IN STEPHENS COUNTY. THE NORWOOD WELL HAD AN initial pro duction of oil reported at better than 10,000 barrels per day. The financial statement showed that it produced and delivered into the pipe lines over $1,787,000.00 worth of oil in about the first four months. THE FAMOUS PERKINS WELL, drilled by Huff, Root & Duff, lying between the Norwood well and our EIGHTY ACRES, produced over 10,000 barrels of oil per day.
