Those who live where mines are made know that it in not only the likelihood of vnlucH that makes
n mine, but the character and ability of the men back of it.' Husinesi management is the tlrst
requisite, because without keen commerciul foresight the value of the property might he in doubt, hut where
there are reputations to Iw upheld it is a foregone coneliiHion that honesty in 'the directorate will he supple

Those who live in Oregon, and whose interest is centered in mining, know that the management of the
CUACKKK JACK CONSOl.IOATKD (U)I.D MINKS COMPANY is tried, capable and of reputation. They
are not novices. They are not pushing operations on the Cracker .lack group on hearsay. What they do is
based on study, investigation nnd fact.
Is not a mine, but a group of mining clnims. H)ssessed 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 stock. At present it is a mine of opportunity. It is a safe place to put one's
money. It will not earn right nway. If it could the stock would lie selling at par, ami it would no longer
be a mine of opportunity for small investors. In the Kast It would m 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 repetition.
What has been done on the Cracker-Oregon and what is being done In that mine most Oregon eople know.
Those who will investigate will find that the continuation of the veins (northward) carrv the values up into
the Cracker Jack. This means intrinsic worth in the Cracker Jmck group. It means profits later on, and protit
means dividends. This is the story in a nutshell.
Three tunnels have been Btarted on the Cracker Jack. Work in two is lielng
prosecuted. piWhen these workings have been driven a little farther wo can talk
of values. Hut 1m it not butter to buv stock nmv mill nroflt bv the mii'iiverlni i(
those values that every mining engineer in the Sumpter lields knows are there 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
stock while it is low, in order to realize returns on your money when the day of prollts arrives, than buy at n
higher price and receive less than you can secure now ?
