GOLCONDA STOCK AND THE CONSERVATIVE INVESTOR
(IOLCONDA Stock has been and is the stock of tho conservative investor. Its
tremendous improvements, its original known value and the fact that it will declare a
dividend iu April, are proofs enough of its intrinsic value. Nowhere in the world of
investments is stock backed by more tangible worth than it Is in the (iolcouda mine.
Tills stock Is COLLATERAL; it is secured by enough gold ore to pay dividends for a
genoratlou, and a milling and hoisting plant well able to turn the latent wealth Into
As tlscal agent I have never hesitated iu publicly expressing my utmost confidence
iu tho future of this great mine. I have always considered that tho work accomp
lished by Messrs. English and Son was merely preliminary. I consider their de
velopments mere scratchiugs that proved the value of this property. Their work made
a fortune for thorn, hut the real values are now being uncovered and tho enlarged
plant will iucrcaso tho production of this initio where it will pay dividends com
mousurato with Its mineral wealth.
Stockholders buying stock prior to the declaration of dividends will receive their
proportionate share of tho earnings.
THIS IS STOCK IN A PRODUCING MINE THAT IS READY TO PAY DIVIDENDS
Investors who recognize a valuable security should procuro stock NOW. Tho
Golcouda has been brought up to an industrial period and is in tho same ranks an are
the larger and more prosperous manufacturing enterprises of tho country.
If YOU wish further information on ths miuo, or wish to make your investment
