SAN DIEGO. Texan. June 26. A
deal was closed recently whereby a
group of New York and Boston capital-
ists purchased from the Duval County
Mutual Oil and Qas association leases
agnregatlng 2.300 acres in Duval
county, offsetting the deep test well
now bi-ing drilled Dy that association.
The contract with this group, T. S
Roota of the Duval Mutual states, calls
for the ttartlng of development within
three raon'hs which will include the
sinking of not less than two testa on
The land leased by the Duval Mu-
tual is on the Garcia ranch, some six
miles southeast of Realltos and within
a comparatively short distance of the
Empire's deep test in Duval county.

great part to the excellent showings
which have already been made In both

artesian wells have sliown that*oll la

Oil Boom Hits Arkansas
The Title "Mysterious Stranger" Might Well
Be Applied to Arkansas
On the west the mighty oil empire of Oklahoma has produced
a billion barrels of oil.
On the south, Louisiana is an oil wonder, making millionaires
by the score. Arkansas joins both marvelous oil states.
Leases can be bought in Arkansas right now at prices that will
appear ridiculous in about twelve months.
The oil boom is sweeping into Arkansas. Wise men are snap-
ping up great tracts of leases.
One Oklahoma oil corporation bought 58,000 acres.
Are you, Mr. Investor, going to sit idly by and let all the good
things get away?
The time to buy oil leases is ahead of the drill. After oil shoots
over the derricks at the rate of a million barrels a month, it is too
late to participate in the good things.
Wise men are acquiring oil leases while prices are low. These
same wise men will sell these oil leases next year at a hundred dol-
lars or a thousand dollars an acre.
They Are Buying the Stuff At
$1.00 An Acre
40 Acres in Pope County, Arkansas
For $1.00 an Acre
40 Acres in Logan County, Arkansas
For $1.00 an Acre
40 Acres in Johnson County, Ark.,
For $1.00 an Acre
There are twelve tract3 of this acreage. It is about the same
kind of stuff that was sold at Ranger three years ago at $1 an acre.
Ranger leases now can be bought at $10,000 an acre—if the owner
needs money badly.
The rental on this Arkansas acreage is $1 an acre but no
rental is due until next May.
If any of you unlucky investors got left when the Ranger
boom started, you might look into this Arkansas acreage.
One year from today you will probably shed tears if you let
this get away. The Ranger boys that laughed three years ago are
still poor. The wise boys picked the Ranger leases and now pay
huge income taxes.

OIL MEN RUSHING
TO WISE COUNTY
FORT WORTH, Texas, June 26 —
The recent drilling activities in Wise
county have caused much concern
throughout the state of Texas and the
report of the Keystone well on the
sand at 1,500 feet has caused prices
| to go soaring skyward.
I H. A. Stiles, oil operator of Fort
i Worth. Texas, has made a tour of Wise
county bringing with him a number
of capitalists and geologists to pass
upon the possibilities of new develop-
Mr. Stiles has recently taken over
10,000 acres lying west of Cottondale
and will resume drilling on the Old
Union Oil company's site. This hole
was drilled to 884 feet with a rotary 1
rig, at which point a showing of both j
gas and oil was encountered and for j
some unknown reason activities ceased
but Mr. Stiles with the determination
and money behind him is going to test
out this structure and gives out the
information that he expects the oil at
another 100 feet. In addition to this,
I Mr. Stiles promises a new rig within
the very near future, starting with a
24-inch hole prepared to go to the
deeper sands which underlie the en-
| tire western part of the county.
j The Bridgeport Lubbock Oil com-
pany is drilling away at 2,500 feet;
the Carey No. 1 is drilling at 1230
feet; the Bridgeport Oil company's
well is drilling at 1,080 feet; the Key-
stone well on the sand at 1,500 feet;
l'rairie Oil and Gas company, south-
western corner of the county drilling
at 800 feet, and together with the
drilling activities in the northern part
of the county has caused the residents
of Wise county to believe that they at
last have been placed upon the map
as having a real oil field

Love, Kindness and Courtesy
Dear Sir and Kriend:
Did you ever answer a great question when you were a little boy or girl
in school? Of course you did. and the teacher praised you before the audience.
Now we are all grown, well educated men and women, full of courtesy
and kindness toward our fellow man.
The human eye is like an electric spark and is th ertiler of the universe.
The vahie of the human eye is beyond the reach of figures. If we all were
blind this world w<*dd be of no use to us and would not exist
The Liberty StaMie in the New York harbor is still holding aloft the
torch of freedom, kindness nad brotherly love over the Red. White and Blue.
Over a million boys, Young American citisens. responded to the call of our
government and left the United Mates to fight in France for the freedom
of all nations.
These boys AI.L willingly offered their lives for our freedom. Many
never returned to their loved ones, but died on the battle field. Many came
back crippled and disabled to such an extent that life is not a pleasure to them.
The-e young men have given an arm. leg or eye for us and our freedom.
Now they are hack among us and we should do our bit for them.
We are willing to do our bit. and here is our proposition : We are buying
a 640-acre oil lease in Lipscomb County, Texas, and are w illing to turn this
Mfl-acre oil lease over to those crippled and di abled soldiers, who so faith-
fully fought for "Freedom for all forever "
We have on hand about 15f\0f*> Texas State maps showing every oil field
in Texas also; every drilling well, railroad town and every county in the
State Mso shows the name of every Oil Company represented in the Texas
oil fields and their producing wells.
The map is 24xi6 inches and is worth the price. We offer you these
maps as above described for $1 00 each You can at your own convenience
buv many as you wi^h The money obtained from the sale of these maps
will b< dei>osited for a drilling fund to drill one or more wells on the 640-acre
tract for these crippled and disabled soldiers
If we strike oil in paying quantities in the first well we will be able to
PATRIOT OIL &
pet 500 wells drilled on this 640-acre tract, and if we should be lucky enough
to get 500 producing wells drilled on this land the daily production, at the
low estimate of 200 barrels per we'll, would bring an increase of $300,000 per
day.or an average of $4.00 per day for every disabled soldier in the United
When you receive the above described Texas State map. you will be
convinced that you made a good purchase. 1hi map is worth the mones
you are paving for it: and besides, your dollar invested in these maps will aid
in the drilling and completion of the first well on the 640 acres for those
