Follow The Crowd.
The white race has succeeded; and If we are to succeed we must fol-
low in his footsteps ir you don't believe that white people are investing
their money In oil go Into Fort Worth Wichita Falls or Dallas Texas. It
is Just like going to a circus that is only to be in town one day. I'll bet
there is over one hundred thousand visitors In those cities dally who are
investing in oil. Again it you don't believe what I say Just iread any of
the Texas' Daily papers; and If you want to see the greatest sight of your
life go to the City of Burkburnett and take a view at the oil fields and
' listen to the hun of the gas engines and drilling machines pounding their
way into mother earth to reach the black liquid gold that flows out of
mother earth anywhere from two to four thousand dollars per day from
one well. Just think of it Isn't it remarkable T Are you going to get
your share of it? If you don't It is your own fault; for there's surely no
prejudice In oil. Not only have we this very valuable lease in Burkburnett
Oil Fields but we also have some valuable holdings la Anderson Co. Texas
Oklahoma and Kansas.- Our stockholders share equally in all properties

Do you wonder why so many people of the white race ride up and down
the streets in th very finest of automobiles and live in the finest of homes
'with us as their servants and all theluxurlea of life? It'a because they In-
vest their money. They take a chance. We can do the same if we will
get behind our race enterprises and In a Negro company where you will
get a square deal. See who Is behind this company.

And were as poor as a mouse.
But he built them an old tent
Where he could call the people to

He taught them there to work pray

They worked and organized Galeeta
