THE SUMPTER MINER
THE CRACKER JACK
REPRESENTS THREE ESSENTIAL QUALITIES
It Not Infrequently
Tlint a Western mine in advertised with more freedom in the'Enst tlmn it Ih
nt home. here this is done thero is ripe indication of Inck of faith. While
n prophet may not lie without honor except in IiIh own country, mint; iiiiikI
ims nccoriieu nonor in us own vicinity, or it in deiiciunt In worth.
Those who livu where mines nru mnde know thnt it Ih not only the likelihood of values thnt makes
n mint', but the chnrncter ami ability of the men buck of it. llluslnesB miuingc iiiuut !h the first
requisite, because without keen commercial foresight the value of thu property might be in doubt, lint where
there are reputations to be upheld it Ih a foregone conclusion that honeHty in 'the directorate will be supple
mented with honesty from the grass rootH down, or, to Ik) exact, with values that will be sulllciuntly protltable
to make the property an earner for all Interested in it.
Those who live in Oregon, nnd whose interest is centered in mining, know that the management of the
CRACKER JACK CONSOLIDATED GOLD MINKS COMPANY is tried, capable and of reputation. They
are not novices. They are not pushing operations on the Cracker . Inck group on hearsay. What they do is
based on study, investigation and fact.
la not a mine, but a group of miniug claims, possessed of just ns much to recommend
it as may be found on the North Pole or the Crnckcr-Orcgou. Thu property is "young."
A little later on the company can talk of ussnyB, and other things thnt will tend to
enhance the telling price of slock. At prevent 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 be selling nt par, and it would no longer
be a mine of opportunity for small investors. In the Kast 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 repetition.
What has been done on the Cracker-Oregon and what 1b being done in thnt minu most Oregon eoplo know.
Those who will investigate will find thnt the continuation of the veins (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 atarteJ on tin Cuckir Jnk. Work in two is being
prosecuted. When these working! have been driven a little farther we can talk
of values. Dut is it not better to buy stock now and nrofit bv the uncovering of
those values that every mining engineer in the Sumpter fields knows are there V Is it not wiser to
put your ravings in a corporation that insures the safest kind of security and be among the "charter
members" when the time of dividends arrives ? To bo brief : Is it not wiser policy tn secure this
stock while it is low, in order to realize returns on your money when the day of profits arrives, than buy at a
higher price and receive less than you can secure now 7
As One Knows,
That such towns as Sumpter are built on mining success. To talk of Eastern
conservatism to you would be time wasted. Notwithstanding, because you do
know.where sheer luck wins once, method and business management win a
dozen nies Therefore, the safest wav is to follow the successful banner. The men
back the CRACKER JACK CONSOLIDATED GOLD MINES COMPANY have
i Tf ernce to guide them. They have had to d with the California, over in Cable Cove
district: they have oeu... . nown through the Cracker-Oregon, and their excellent service for thu Golconda
established a record in mining annals. Now they say that the Cracker Jack la all that any of the other mines
could be, and they declare that the day is not far distant when this property will be one of the big producers of
the district. They claim that it will be a dividend payer that no stockholder need be ashamed of, and they aro
Belling stock in the Cracker Jack for thu same reason they sold stock in the others. They do not wish to w
mlt anything to lag about opening and equipping the property. They are not growing careless because the
treasury of the company is well supplied with capital. They aro looking forward to thu timu when they will
need much more money for equipment, and when thnt time arrives they intend to Im found prepared This
company is willing that you should reap your reward from the eirnings of this minu. Do one of thu wealthy
investors of the reuiou 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 opMrtunitieH. They sought likely
propositions and linked their fortunes with them. It is simple enough If you will but take thu time to investi
gate. The property is with you, and the reputations of the men who offer you this stock nru represented by
three monuments that will withstand much discussion the California, the Cracker-Oregon and the Golconda.

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 thu development of the Cracker Juck will help you
after a while. Thu benefit is mutual and the reward will be worthy.
