g -I ^.^t'jSSpV'tJ^iJtigt^' , ^, • I It is the best Oil Stock to buy. ^ There is nothing on the market to equal it. Let us tell you why? It is only capitalized at $200,000 while neirly every company in the field is capitalized at $1,000,000 therefore one share of the McKinley CRUDE *8']^0eK is worth five^ shares of the Million Dollar Company's Stfck or twb and one half shares of the hatf million Company's stock. Stock selling in a million dpUar company'at 10 cents per share would be equal to McKinley Crude kt 50 cents per share Every $2000. will pay a One, Cent Dividend on the McKinley Crude. We have two splendid Oil Wells now, No. 3 drilling. Stari^af'd Oil Company pipe line goes right by our wells. We believe these two wells will pump 50 barrels per day or $1500 per month jor $1^.000 per year, or 9 per cent on par value of the stock, or 36 per cent on the price of our stock today, if we can do this from two wells now in, what can we pay our shareholders when ;we get ten i wells. = f M For a few,days only you can buy Treasury stock at 25 cents per scare, par value $100. This is only equal to 5 cents, per share in a Million Dollar Compaiiy. Buy stock whei« there is oil where is now an established market waitiog you. In order to buy a Pumping Plant 20,000 shares will be sold, th^ prices go up. Honest careful and ;<3PiaservatiYe mamigement. We invite your inspection of our property. Subscriptions received by .1 F.
