THE SUMPTER MINER
THE CRACKER JACK
REPRESENTS THREE ESSENTIAL QUALITIES
It Not Infrequently
That a Western mine is advertised with nioro freedom in tho Knot than it in
at home. Where thin is done there is ripe indication of lack of faith. While
a prophet may not be without honor except in his own country, a mine must
mm accorueu nonor in us own viciniiy, or u is uencieni in worm.
Those who live where mines are made know that it is not only the likelihood of values that makes
a mine, but the character and ability of the men back of It. Business management is the first
requisite, becauso without keen commercial foresight the value of the property might be in doubt, but where
there are reputations to be upheld It is a foregone conclusion that honesty in the directorate will be supple
mented with honesty from the gras rootB down, or, to be exact, with values that will be sufficiently profitable
to make the property an earner for all interested in it.
Those who live In Oregon, and whoso interest is centered In mining, know that the management of the
GRACKKR JACK CONSOLIDATED GOLD MINKS COMPANY is tried, capable and of reputation. They
are not novices. They are not pushing operations on the Cracker Jack group on hearsay. What they do is
based on study, investigation and fact.
Is not a mine, but a group of miniug claims, possessed of just as much to recommend
it as may be found on the North Pole or the Cracker-Oregon. The property is "young."
A little later on the company can talk of assays, and other things that will tend to
enhance the selling price of slock. At present it is a mine of opportunity. It Is a safe place to put one's
money. It will not earn right away. If it could the stock would lie selling at par, and It would no longer
be a mine of opportunity for small investors. In the East it would be well to tell about the Cracker Creek
mines, but out here in the Sumpter fields the story of these properties is too well known to call for roiietltiuu.
What has been done on the Cracker-Oregon and what is being done in that mine most Oregon people know.
Those who will investigate will find that the continuation of the veiiiB (northward carrv the values up into
the Cracker Jack. This means intrinsic worth in the Cracker Jack group. It means profits later on, and profit
means dividends. This is the story in a nutshell.
Three tunnels have been started on the Cracker Jack. Work in two is Iwing
prosecuted. When these workings have been driven a little further we can talk
of values. Hut is it not better to bliv Ntock now and nrnflt hv tlm uiiraivnrlnir of
" . . . those values that every mining engineer ill the Sunipter fields knows are there t Is it not wiser to
put your savings in a corporation that insures the safest kind of security and be among the "charter
members" when the time of dividends arrives ? To be brief: Is it not wiser policy to secure this
slock while it is low, in order to realize returns on your money when the day of profits arrives, than buy at u
higher price and receive less than you can secure now ?
As One Knows,
T T ! That such towns as Sunipter are built on mining success. To talk of Eastern
YOU XN.ea.LlZe conservatism to you wwld be time wasted. Notwithstanding, because you do
vv w know, where sheer luck wins once, method and business management win a
dozen times Therefore, th" safest wav is to follow tho successful banner. The men
back of the CKACKKK JACK CON'SOLI DATED GOLD MINKS COMPANY have
experience to guide them. They have hud to do with the California, over in Cable Cove
district: they have become known through the Cracker Oregon, and their excellent service for the Golconda
" established a record in mining annaN. Now they cay that the Cracker Jack is all that any of the other mines
i could be, and they declare that the day is not fur distant when this property will lie one of the big producers of
the district. They claim that it will Iks a dividend payer that no stockholder need Ihi ashamed of, and they are
selling stock in the Cracker .lack for the same reason they Hold stock in the others. They do not wish to er-
init anything to lag about opening and equipping the property. Thev are not growing careless because the
treasury of the company is well supplied with capital. 1'hey are looking forward to the time when they will
I need much more money for equipment, and when that time arrives they intend to bo found prepared This
i ' company is willing that vou should reap your reward from the eirniugs of this mine. He one of the wealthy
investors of the reuion if you like. The pioneers of other camps made their money through correct invest
ments. They didn't make it by wondering, nor by blaming fate for missed oportuultles. They sought likely
propositions and linked their fortunes with them. It is simple enough if vou will but take the time to investi
gate. Tho proerty is with you, and the reputations of the men who offer you this stock are represented by
three monuments that will withstand much discussion the California, the Cracker-Oregon and the Golconda.
You know better than you can be told that, once valuable ore or extensive ore bodies chance to be opened,
tho stock has a skyward 'eudeucy, and it generally stays up there. When the Cracker Jack has lieen devel
oped you will bo positive that it is worth your confidence, hut the stock will be beyond its bargain period. Now
your opportunity is that of becoming interested In one of the best properties in the district excepting none.
- Grasp that opportunity. Buy stock, Buy it today.
If you doubt, there is the prerty, and in the same neighborhood are the substantial testimonials to tho
worth and integrity of the men back of it.
If the Cracker Jack group could be exhibited in New York, the necesHary funds would be forthcoming
in a single day.
Were you East you would appreciate this truth.
Then why not appreciate now ?
What you invest now will help the Cracker Jack, and tho development of the Cracker Jack will help you
after a while. The benefit is mutual and the reward will m worthy.
