FORTUNES IN OIL.
There are even better chances of making
fortunes out of oil In California than out
of gold, for the Industry Is still so young
that Investors can secure ground-floor
propositions, and a few good wejls can
earn fabulous dividends.
No Industry today admits of such
chances to acquire wealth surely and
quickly out of small Investments as oil.
The great fortunes of this country have
not been acquired by continued small sav
ings, but are made by Judicious specula
tion. The Oregon OU & Development Com
pany, a Portland incorporation, has placed
a limited amount of Its nonassessable
treasury stock on Bale, at a very low fig
ure. Call at 324 Chamber of Commercs

The Stcck Piano Tone.
There Is a distinctive Individuality to
the tone of all the Steck Pianos which is
recognizable at once, particularly by the
trained musical ear.
It Is uniform in all the Instruments
manufactured by Messrs. George Steck &
Co., and differs only In volume according
to the Elze of the instrument.
This peculiar "individuality" of the
Steck Tone lies In the fact that Messrs.
Steck & Co. have succeeded where nearly
all other piano-makers have failed, in pro
ducing a tone where on the one hand vol
ume was not sacrificed to secure mere
sweetness and limpidity, nor on the other
were sweetness and limpidity sacrificed to
The Steck Tone, the result of years of
struggle, of the constant efforts of Invent
ive genius to reach perfection. Is a most
happy combination of power with those
musical qualities which are so delightful
to the musician.
It possesses a pure, delightfully refined,
and one might almost say, crisp and
pearly singing quality. It Is warm, ex
pansive, and responsive, to the most mi
nute nuances of the artist's taste. It Is
at the same time rich, noble and sonor
ous. It will be a pleasure to show you our
fine assortment of Steck pianos, also other
