Affords an opportunity for profitable investment that cannot be equaled in the Sumpter District. The mine is now
being 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,
tunnelling and sinking on the ledge, blocking out ore and adding to the pay dumps, and it may be expected that
the mint1 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.

Half the Utual Snowfall.
Oregon's snowfall up to date Is about
half the average of other years. Forecast
Official Beals has received reports from 43
points in the mountain districts of the
coast and eastern Oregon. With but a
single exception the repotts indicate con
siderable of a deficiency in the snow fall.
This exception is a point in Union county,
where an average snowfall Is reported.
The dlfficiency is about the same In the
Coast range as in the Blue mountains of
eastern Oregon. The reason for the
shortage in the snow crop is the high tem
perature during December, which pro
duced rain Instead of snow. Telegram.

Lively Times Ahead.
Hon. John M. Burke, the prominent
Northwest mine promoter, who has been
operating in Butte for the past six months,
Is expected to arrive here in a few days.
Also a number of Baker county mine
owners and mine promoters are abroad'
and are expected to return this month.
Many big deals are talked of and lively
times In mining are probable In the near
