the Golconda Consolidated Gold Mines Company, principal ofllco
in Pendleton, which is now operating the mine. The fall par
chase price is paid, and all but tho treasury stook disposed of to
those who advanced the purohase price,
There was left in the treasury for an operating fund
$500,OCfO of treasury stook. Somo of this stook is offered for
salebut not exceeding $200,000 of it will be sold: as thatwlU
supply ample funds until the mine is more than self sustaining,
This stock is offered at 10 CENTS A SHARE for the next thirty days.
As an investment of this charaoter nothing equals It. To
prove its worth those at work in the mine, who aye in a position
to know what is in the Golconda, have bought stock at ten cents
a share to the extent of their financial ability, Those who nave
a little money which they can spare for the purpose should take
1,000 or more shares of this stook. as they will woat likely lid
