OIL AND GAS LEASES
We Are Subdividing Some of Our Leases in Custer County Near Drilling
Wells and Selling Them in 10 Acre Blocks, Only $10 Per Acre
Thi* is a chance for the small investor to get inter ested in one of the coming oil fields of the state.
EigJit drilling propositions have started or about to start in the county; good showings have been reported in several of these wells; it is only a question of time
when this field will be considered one of the leading fields in Oklahoma.
Custer County lies directly north of the great Burkburnett oil field in%iorth Texas and east of the great gas field of Amarillo, Texas. The Cement, Okla., oil
field is southeast of Custer County and the big gasser recently found to the northwest at Liberal, Kansas, places Custer County in the center of oil activity.
This region has been surveyed by some of the most prominent geologists of the state and with the good showing made by wells now drilling it looks like th* pre-
diction of a great number of geologists and oil men that this would soon be .one of the largest and best fields'in the state would soon be realized.
The National Union Oil and Gas Company is drilli ng a deep test well on this hlock and to assist in completing this well we will sell (for a short time only) leases
at $10 per acre in ten-acre tracts and upwards. Don't wait, but send your subscription today for leases. If you wait, others will take all we care to offer and thus
great opportunity will be gone.
These leases are five-year leases with four years to run, with one year rental paid in advance.
