THE SUMPTER MINER
Wednesday, October 29, 1902
If you want to make an investment in a mitring enterprise, Investigate Ours.
There is no system more fair and equal for all concerned than we have adopted.
YOU need not fear that the large interest will swallow up the small interest. All stand on the same
footing and share alike in the product of the mine. Our company is conducted on the most eco
nomical principles to insure goon returns. No man shall receive a salary unless he performs service
beneficial to the company. Better pay two miners three dollars each for a day's labor than to pay six dollars
for the services of a needless manager or superintendent. We can place you where the investment of a
small amount of money will bring you large returns. We ask an opportunity of explaining to you our system
of conducting a mining enterprise. We want to prove to you why and how we are bound to be successful.
We want to tell you how to secure good mining stock at a low figure. We would not ask you to place your
money where we would not place our own. Taking all things into consideration, we can offer you the best
opportunity for investment that you can find anywhere. It does not require a fortune to become interested
with us, where the indications point to speedy and most profitable returns. We are in this business to
make it a success, and will do it by systematic development and good management. We invite the strictest
investigation ol our properties and our company. Write to us for full particulars how you may become in
terested in a good mine for small investment, and we will convince you that every word we advertise is
true. We can furnish you the best of references. Address
