In 1,000,000 shares of the
par value of Fifty Cents
each. Treasury Stock
PULL PAID AND NON-ASSESSABLE
Treasury Stock at TEN CENTS Per Share
CASH BASIS All Cash Purchasers Receive a Discount of Five Per
Cent on the Investment.
INSTALLMENT BASIS Purchasers May Secure Stock in Blocks
of 1000 Shares and Upwards, Payable 10 Per Cent Down and 10
Per Cent Each Month Until Paid.
Affords an opportunity for profitable investment that cannot be equaled in the Sumpter District. The mine is now
bcinn actively operated and has readied 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 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.

HAKLY DAYS OP SUMPTHR. !
Hoiuiim Pint Quart: Mine Worked in
Tlit- HaUer City I Hull School NtiKHet
has issued .1 vety interesting historical
miinlier, tte.itiiiK of the e.iilyd.iy ot this
county. KeK'irdliiK Similiter it says:
Ne.11 the foot ol the lilkliiun range "f
the Blue mountains, about twenty miles
west ol ItaUer City, is the well known
town ol Sumpter.
I'he history ol tills town he,an In the '
early sUlies and for many years the mines
in Its vicinity have been worked and '
abandoned. It is related that liveConfeder- J
ate soldiers fiom Price's army left Califor
nia tor the g'ld iirhls f Idaho. In the
Willamette valley, they joined an e.pe
dltion for the Mine Huchet gold Ktilch and
thus came as far as the HlUhorn moun
tains. On October i, iWii, they discov
ered rich gold in ( irlllin's gulch near
Similiter, where they built a cabin and
called It Port Sumpter, in honor ol the
lirst engagement of the Civil war. This,
marked the beginning of a nourishing '
Por many years, Port Sumpter, as it i
was called, until iKKs was represented by
but one log cabin, where all wayfarers
met a hearty reception. Soon the Chinese
came pouting in. They picked about
over the choicest ground unmolested for (
over thirty years, and the amount ot gold
these Mongolians sent to China will
never be known; although it is estimated
at many millions. One Chinaman, alone, '
was robbed ot a f 17,000 nugget.
I'he immigration of the white men
amounteJ to very little before 1867, when
miners Irom the Hlu mountains made
many locations In this region. They I
sunk slults drove tunnels and built
arastras, but all proved a lailure, on ac '
count of the lack of other machinery. I
The Homina was one of the first dis-'
coveries in this district that ever pioduced '
much wealth. It was discovered while
placer mining by a man known as Jack
Haggard and located to Haggard, Win
ters and Dicks. After a year or two they
sold It for 53(10 to some persons not at
present known. It changed hands sev
era I times during the ne.t seven or eight
years and was two or three times aband
oned and relocated. In 188; its value had
been discovered to such an extent that it 1
was sold for fio.ooo to the Bonanza Min
ing company. This company built a to
stamp mill In 1886, at a cost of 512,000,
and spent 40,000 In development work,
but it all turned out to be a failure. It
was sold to the Gelser family in 1800 for
f 3,000, not including the Haggard and a
few other claims which they previously
accepted in payment of a debt. Active
operations began In 1801, and during the
ne.t eight years it produced over f 1,000,
000 In gold. Since its early discovery
new claims have been added until it now
embraces sixteen claims, or an area of
over joo acres. It was sold in 1800 for
about 5750,000 to the Itonana Gold Min
ing aitd Milling company.
Hand Drill Does the Work of Eight Men.
A press dispatch from Colfax says
that V. V. Waite gave a public ex
hibition of the working of his new rock j
drill, of which mention was made when '
the machine was first patented The test !
was witnessed by a number of men who ,
are interested in mining. The machine,
which Is made to be operated by hand,
consists of four hammers, each weighing
four pounds, attached to a wheel, which
Is turned by hand. The drill Is turned
automatically, the whole machinery being
operated by turning a crank. One man
can run It easily. Much interest was
taken in the test, which drew a large
crowd. A huge boulder weighing about
loo pounds was used for the test. One
man turned the crank and drilled a hole
In this rock, which is one of the hardest
found In this country, at the rate of an
Inch each minute. Mining men who wit
nessed the test pronounced it a success
and say it will revolutionize mining in
low grade ore, as the machine does the
work of eight men.
