THE SUMPTER MINER.
Nervous Debility in Men!
' J COPYRIGHTED
If the patient suffers from a weakness peculiar to men,
one of those disorders resulting from youthful dissipation,
the very worst thing possible for him to do is to put med
icine into his stomach. The drugs all doctors use for such
cantharides, morphine, strychnia, etc. are poisonous, and
either stimulate or deaden. I have seen more drug wrecks
than whisky wrecks. 1 give weak men a natural remedy.
in its 'purest form. There is no chance for injury in using
the galvanic current. It never stimulates. It must strengthen.
But for proper results you must have a continuous application
several hours a day. I recognized this fact over 25 years ago,
and at once got up the portable battery. This developed into
my present Dr. Sanden Electric Belt, with attachment
for men, now known and used in all parts of the world.
CURRENT INSTANTLY FELT.
You adjust the belt to body night at when retiring to bed and
take off next morning. Do this for two or three months and
take care of your general health. That's all I ask. Over

MINES AND PROSPECTS.
Worth What They Are Worth No One
Can Look Far Into the Ground.
There is no end of discussion and argu
ment concerning the relative value of
producing mines and prospects, as Invest
ments. The question will never be settled, for
the simple reason that there Is no way of
settling it. No fixed or even general rule
can be laid down. Every case must de
pend upon its own facts and circumstances.
A producing mine, no matter what the pro
duct, whether large or small, will not be a
good investment If the purchaser pays too
much for it. The real value of such a
mine depends not merely upon the im-j
mediate output, but also upon how long it
It has been well remarked that no min-.
lug geologist, however highly educated'
and skillful, can look with certainty very '
far Into the ground. Following the strike
and dip of a ledge there may be two de-.
veiopmenis ai pumis suuic uisuiiiic ii.im,
giving fair assurance of a continuity of
value between the two points. But be
yound the outermost point at which actual
development has shown the values to ex
ist, there can be very little of certainty.
If a body of ore has been followed down
to a considerable depth with no diminu
tion of size of richness, there is a good
strong probability of its continuing for
some distance further, but the absolute
certainty exists only to a very limited ex
tent. Within the zone of actual development
much can be affirmed with certainity, but
when we get beyond that we leave the
domain of certainity and enter that of
probabilities, which will be more or less
strong according to circumstances. These
nay be such as to make the probability
almost a certainity. But in any event, if
the purchaser pays more than the mine i
worth', it will not be a good investment.
The same is true of "prospects." They
are worth just what they are worth and
nothing more. Hut in the case of a mere
prospect there are more chances to take
and still greater care and skill are neces
sary on the part of the purchaser. In
short, a prospect, however good, is not
really a mine until it is developed into one
and the values proven.
More men have become rich from buy
ing prospects than from the purchase of
producing mines, and there are good rea
sons why it should be so. There are vast
ly more "prospects" than there are pro
ducing mines, and little more opportuni
ties. Besides, while there are more chances
to take In the case of a prospect, the price
is usually very much less than that of a
producing mine, and In the event of suc
cess the profit is greater.
Comparatively few producing mines are
bought outright. Of course, wliere they
are owned by Incorporations or joint stock
companies, the stock frequently changes
hands, but this Is largely a matter of
sneculatien. When a mine is Individual
or partnership property, the owners, as a
rule, either want to keep it themselves or
they want a higher price than they can
get. Dally Mining Record.
