Affords an opportunity for profitable investment that cannot be equaled in the Sumpter District. The mine is now
Iwlnn actively operated and has reached a degree of development practically assuring the stability of the mine.
The ledge, carrying high values in gold, copper and silver, is over 40 feet in width. Work is being rapidly pushed,
tunneillng and sinking on the ledge, blocking out ore and adding to the pay dumps, and it may be expected that
the mine will be a producer and the company a dividend payer at an early date. Every dollar realized by the
company from the sale of treasury stock is being used for improving the property. The sale of stock will be con
tinued until the mine is a producer,. As development progresses the price of stock will be advanced.
Secure this stock now at 10 cents. That it will be worth its par value within 12 months is a conservate es
timate. Subscriptions for stock may be sent to the company direct, or to the First Bank cf Sumpter, Sumpter, Ore.

A prominent mining man said to a Dem

A veteran prospector's advice to loca

by sinking Incline shafts on the outcrop

if the ore Is not ikli enough to pay tor

J SYSTEM OF CAVE MINING.
Valuable for Its Cheapness, So That Low
Grade Ores Can Be Worked.
The adoption of the new system of cave
mining by the Miner-Graves syndicate in
, the operation of the Knob Hill mine marks
, an important advance in mining operations
in the Northwest. The cave system was
first employed in the immense bodies of
low grade ores of the great Mercur mine,
I In southern Utah, and Its success there
has resulted In its adoption for mining the
I somewhat similar deposits of tiie Bonn-
I dary district.
The cave system Is chiefly valuable for
its cheapness. It enables the mining of
a grade of ore that under the ordinary
system would be too low to handle. It
'consists in blocking out a large area of
tore and then quarrying the whole block
