on the orchard proposition in the

orchard on the right kind of land
is very attractive.
The right kind of an orchard
will prove a bonanza; the wrong
kind is sure to prove a “ white

A man who is not in touch with
the orchard business cannot put

Fortunes in Copper,
N single industry in the world is now
paying so large a profit on the amount
of money invested as the copper indus
try. During the last 20 years the copper
mines of the United States and Mexico
have paid in actual dividends, *300,000,-
000. Since January 1st, o f this year,
ten copper companies alone have dis
tributed in earnings nearly $19,000,000.

The mining o f copper is making more
millionaires than any other industry in
the world and is making them quicker.
To make large profits on a small outlay,
in copper, one must purchase shares in
a company that has just begun opera
tions but which can prove that it has
jtreat deposits of the metal, and which
is selling its shares at a low price in or
der to obtain funds to purcn3.se equip
ment and enlarge its operations. The
advancing price of copper and the grow
ing demand and consumption of ths
metal have made copper mines the mot t
sought after o f all mineral properties.
There are countless opportunities for
profitable investment in the develop
ment of the natural resources o f t ie

the Blue Ledge mining district, sit, ated
in Siskiyou county,
alifomia, ran, in
the slightest degree, appreciate the vast
opportunities for profitable investments
in that new and thriving copper camp.
