To provide facilities to supply the increasing demand for local
and long distance service, the Nebraska State Railway Commission
has authorized an issue of $500,000.00 of the common voting stock
Lincoln Telephone and Telegraph Co.
of Lincoln, Nebraska
This stock has paid dividends regularly every three months in
January, April, July and October for the past 1 1 years at the rate of
7 Per Annum
and is now being offered at its par and regular value of $ 1 00.00 per
share in amounts to suit the purchaser, and presents an excellent op
portunity for the safe investment of large amounts or small savings,
and pays dividends from date of purchase.
It is free from normal Federal Income Tax and all Nebraska
taxes, as these are paid by the company.
The stock issues and expenditures of this company are under
the control of the Nebraska State Railway Commission, assuring fair
rates to the public and protection of stockholders' interests.
The stock may be transferred at any time in whole or part on
the books of the company without expense.
Adequate telephone service has become one of the prime and
growing necessities of civilization, which fact gives absolute stability
to telephone stock, and for a regular quarterly income stock in an
established telephone company is the most satisfactory investment
This is an old established company with assets of $9,91 5.000 and
furnishes exchange and long distance telephone service to 64,576 sub
scribers in 118 cities and towns in 22 counties of the fertile lands
and prosperous communities of southeastern Nebraska. Its territory
extends from the Missouri river on the east to the west line of Adams
and Webster counties on the west, and from, the Platte river on the
north to the Kansas state line on the south, having an area of 1 2,500
square miles, with a population of 415,540 people.
Its present revenues amourrt to over $200,000 per month. It has
1,570 employes, and its stockholders and owners are the officers and
employes of the company, hundreds of its subscribers and patrons,
and many investors outside of Nebraska.
The officers and directors of the company are among the most
prominent and successful business men of Nebraska, and are the same
who are responsible for its continuous growth and prosperity.
7 ' j net per annum, paid quarterly by a check for $ I 7.50 for each
$1,000.00 of stock you own, sent to' your address every three months
in January, April, July and October, is a good return on such a safe
and conservative investment.
To secure some of this stock, send your check with your order
for the number of shares you desire to purchase, and stock will be
sent direct to you, or send the name of your bank to which certificate
will be sent, and you can pay for it on receipt.
Reservations may be made for stock to be taken up within
