Each. Treasury Stock
FULL PAID AND NON-ASSESSABLE
-h T""...,Y Stock at TEN CENTS Per Shim

Affords an opportunity for profitable investment that cannot be equaled in the Sumpter District. The mine is now
beinK 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.

ABOUT "FORTY-NINE JIMMY."
Old Acquaintance Tells Something ol Hit
Fur a number nl years Forty-Nine Jim
my was the solitary resident of HoMnsnn
vllle, a deserted hut once prosperous placer
c.iiup In ( iraut county, lie came to Ore
gon In 1W15 from California, mid had been
a resldmt of ol lohinsonville ever since
until the people In that part of the country
took pity on his condition and tool him
to the poor house, a proceeding whlih was
accomplished much against the will of the
old miner, who wished to end his days In
the spot which Mas so familiar to him.
'I his much and more was learned from
Samuel Cat prater in the lobby of the Im
perial hotel. Mr. Carpenter is an old

In the days ol Us prime, that he lirst met
"That Is not Ills leal name," said Mr.
Carpenter. "Ills name If James iJlffrn,

he was liftcen year old. lie lust went to
an uncle of his, named Hubert Audeison,
In Cauadi, and from there drilled to New
York state. After that he went west,
stopping as a place attracted his fancy.
In '4U the gold fever hit him and he went
to California, lie made fortune after

miner has done, drank It all away. Me

the diggings were light and In ten years

away. Finally all of them left the place
hut Forty-Nine Jimmy, as we had come
to call him. He worked away at his
claim, made a living and that was all he
cared for. The houses were dismantled
and torn down, but Jimmy kept his claim
and seemed happy enough. Until the
last year or so, he has done well enotiRh,
hut it was hard scraphiR to make a liv
ing, and for the past few months he had
had hard work to Ret along. It was
dually decided to put him where he could
be looked after. Despite his 74 years, he
objected to going to the poor house, and
it was all his friends could do to induce
him to ro peaceably.
"lie has no relatives living that we
know of or that he knows of. He often
I speaks of his early days, hut never with
'any apparent feeling of regret, and has

were others there or not, and he cared for
no other place. All through that section
of the state people know of Forty-Nine
Jimmy, and many have heard of him who
never saw him. He lias been one of the

sonvllle Is not to be left altogether alone.
t:d Stephenson, son of ex-Governor
Stephenson, of Idaho, made a home for
himself there with his two sons. They
are working on some quartz claims.
"I still own the same claim I took when
I first went to that part of the state, and
am working it some. The future of that
section is in the quartz claims, which are
promising. There are no mills, but close
around there are a number of producing
mines, and as capital Is being brought In,
It is likely that Roblnsonvllle will be heard
from again, sometime in the near future."
