THE SUMPTER MINER
THE CRACKER JACK
REPRESENTS THREE ESSENTIAL QUALITIES
It Not Infrequently
That a Western mine i advertised with more freedom in tho Kant than it is
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
oe aecorueu nonor in us own vicinity, or it is uencient in worth. .,.
Those who live where mines are made knowthat it is not only tho likelihood of values that makes
a mine, but the character and ability of the men bnck of it. ilJuaiuess management in the first
requisite, because without keen commercial foresight the value of the property might Iw in doubt, but where '
there are reputations to be upheld it is a foregone conclusion that honesty in the directorate will Iw supple
mented with honesty from the grass roots 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 whose lnterect is centered in mining, know that the management of the
CRACKKR 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 fiict. ai.
Is not a mine, but a group of mining claims, possessed of just ns much to recommend
it as may be found on the North Pole or the Cracker-Oregon. Thu property is "young."
A little later on the company can talk of assays, ami other things that will tendtn "
enhance the selling price of slock. At present it In a mine of opportunity. It is a sate place to put one's
money. It will hot earn right away. If it could tho stock would be selling at par, and it would no louger
be a mino of opportunity for small investors. In the Kast U would be well to tell about the Cracker Creek
mines, but out here in the Bumpter fields the story of these properties is too well known to rail for reietit1on.
What has been 'done on the Cracker-Oregon and what is being done in that mine most Oregon people kn'ow. '
Those who will investigate will find that the continuation of the veins (northward) carry the values up into
the Cracker Jack. This means intrinsic worth in the Cracker Jack group. It means profits Inter on, and profit .
means dividends. This is the story in a nutshell.
Three tunnels have been ntarted on the Cracker Jack. Work in two is being
prosecuted. When these workings (have been driven a littlo farther we can talk
of values. ftrit is it not better to buy stock now and profit hv the unrovcrinu of
those values that overy mining engineer in tho Sumpter fields 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 nrrives ? To bo 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 profits arrives, than huynt a
highor price and receive less than you can secure now 7 '
As One Knows,
That such towns bh Sumpter are built on mining success. To talk of Kastern
conservatism to you wmld be time wasted. Notwithstanding, because you do
know, where sheer luck wins once, method mid business m nil age men t win a
mes Therefore, the safest wav is to follow tho successful banner. The men
the CRACKKK JACK CONSOLIDATED GOLD MINKS COMPANY have
1 rernce to guide them. They have had to do with the California, over in Cable Cove
district: they have oei.ou.. nown through the Cracker-Oregon, and their excellent service for the Goleonda ,
established a' record in mining annals. Now they say that the Cracker Jack Is all that any of the other mines
could be, and they declare that tho 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 lie ashamed of, and they'arv
selling stock in the Cracker Jack for the same reason they sold stock in the others. They do not wish to per
mit anything to lag about opening and equipping the property. Thev are not growing careless because the ,
treasury of the company is well supplied witn capital. They are looking forward to the time when they will
need much more money for equipment, and when that time arrives they intend to Iw found prepared This
company is willing that you should reap your reward from the eiruiugs of this mine. He one of the wealthy
investors of the reaiou if you like. The pioneers of other camps made their money through correct invest-
ments. They didn't make it by wondering, nor by blaminu fate for missed opMrtunitips. They sought likely
propositions and linked their fortunes with them. It is simple enough if you will hut take the time to investi
gate. The property is with you, and the reputations of the men who offer von this stock are represented by
threo monuments that will withstand much discussion the California, the Cracker-Oregon and the (iolconda. '
You know better than you ran be told that, once valuable ore or extensive ore ImnIIcs ehnncu to be opened,
the stock has a skyward tendency, and it generally stays up there. When the Cracker Jack has been devel
oped you will be positive that it is worth your confidence, but the stock will bo beyond its bargain period. Now
your opjortuuity Is that of becoming interested in one of the best proterties in the district excepting none.
Grasp that opportunity. Buy stock. Jiuy it today.
If you doubt, there is the prerty, and in tho same neighborhood are the substantial testi moninls to the
worth and integrity of the men back of it.
If the Cracker JHck group could be exhibited in New York, the necessary funds would bo forthcoming
in a single day.
Were you Kast you would appreciate this truth.
Then why not appreciate now ?
What you invest now will help the Cracker Jack, and the development of the Cracker Jack will help you
after a while. The lieueflt is mutual and the reward'will be worthy.
