An Opportunity
Rogue River valley is full of Oil,
Natural Gas, Artesian water and
other valuable minerals.
Nature's storehouse is bulging
out with wealth and only needs the
magic hand of man to unlock and
reveal the hidden wealth stored up
for the use of the Twentieth Cen
tury. Our arid lands will produce won
ders if we once can procure Arte
sian water to supply abundance of
water with which to irrigate.
Oil and Natural Gas aie the
greatest economical fuel of this
generation. Shall we let it be dor
mant here in Rogue River valley,
while other sections of the country
are using nature's storehouses?
Oregon cannot be' beaten any
where in the world, for natural Gas
Oil or Artesian water. Rogue River
valley is truly the Italy of America.
Here we have the finest climate, the
best apples, the largest peaches
and the prettiest girls.
Shall the people of Grants Pass
forever continue to drink the slime
and slush and sewage that pours
into Rogue river while we can have
the best of Artesian mountain water
by the very simple process of dril
ling a few hundred feet?
What a beautiful city Grants
Pass would be if there were a stream
of pure Artesian water flowing
along each side of her streets.
It is the intention of The Oregon
Natural Gas, Oil & Mining Co. to
soon begin active operation of dril
ling a number ol wlls to the depth
of 1000 feet to ascertain the pres
ence of Natural. ,Gas, Oil, Artesian
water and other valuable minerals.
They are now bonding land in
and around Grants Pass. Within
the next six months they will be
drilling on some of the property
they have bonded for that purpose,
They intend if it is possible, to
supply the city with plenty of pure
Artesian water before the coming
The Oregon Natural Gas, Oil
& Mining Co. requests all farmers
and property holders to give them
the privilege of drilling one. or more
wells on their property. They
will give a percentage of the
output of ibe wells to pa 1 ties
granting the privilege,
In order to get the people of
Grants Pass and Josephine county
interested in Natural Gas, Oil, and
Artesian water they will give all of
them a chance to subscribe for a i
few shares of the capital stock of
the company on very liberal terms. I
Suppose you take a few shares of
the capital stock of The Oregon
Natural Gas, Oil & Mining Co. of;
the par value of $t per share, i
You pay 10 per cent, down, 40 per
cent, when the machinery is set up
and is ready to begin operation and
the remaining 50 per eent. when
they strike a flow ot natural gas,
oil or artesian watel or have drilled
to the depth of 1000 feet. If they
strike oil, natural gas or artesian
water you have the option of tak
ing ten times as many shares asyou
subscribe fot. They will pay you
back all the money received from
you if they fail to drill a well as
agreed upon.
You are invited to thoroughly
investigate their proposition. . You
have nothing to lose but every
thing to gain. If you are a cap
italist it is a safe investment. If
you are a farmer or property holder
it will pay you to invest as it will
enhance the value of your place a
hundred fold more ihan you invest
if they should find either oil, gas
or water near your property. If
you are a working mau it will pay
you to take shares as this will open
up a vast and a new work for you.
The merchants and business men
should invest in shares in order to
start this enterprise. Professional
men, in fact all classes of people,
should take a few shares in this
vast and new enterprise and it will
be a help to all in Grants Pass and
Josephine county. If you cannot
take too shares you can tak' 50 or
ten shares. Remember every dollar
will be returned to you if the com
pany fails to drill a well as agreed
upon. The stocks are non-assessable
and fully paid up as they are
used. The by-laws of the com
pany do not allow a debt to ex
ceed 1 per cent of the capital.
Scott Griffin of Grants Pass, Ore
gon, is a stockholder, a director
and the secretary of The Natural
Gas, Oil & Mining Co, who will
take leases on lands and subscrip
tion for stocks and will give any j
informat:.ri regarding the company.
The closer you investigate the
more you will help the company by
taking stock and leasing your prop
erty for the purpose of drilling one
or more wells thereupon as you
have nothing to lose but all to gain.

Question Answered.
Yes, August Flower mill lias the
larnesi (ale of any medicine in the civil
ized world. Your mothere and grand
mother! never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Biliousness
Doctors were scarce, and they seldom
heard of Appendicitis, Nervous Prostra
tion or Heart lailute, etc. They used
August (lower to clean out the system
and stop fermentation of undigested food,
regulate the action of the liver, stimulate
the nervous and organic action of the
system, and that is all they took when
feeling dull and bad with headaches and
other aches. You only need a few doses
of Green's August Flower, in liquid form,
to make you satisfied there is nothing
serious the matter with you, Uet
