THE SUMPTER MINER
THE CRACKER JACK
REPRESENTS THREE ESSENTIAL QUALITIES
It Not Infrequently
T T .. 1 1 ,.ri T,mt " Wl"Jern "'' i" advertised with more freedom in tho Hunt than it in
niaODenS ,lt ,,0,"e- Whore this in limits there id rlK indication of lack of faith. While
x x a prophet may not be wit limit honor exeepi in hid own country, u mine iiiiimI
ho oceonletl honor in itH own vicinity, or it in dctlcient in worth.
Thoxe who live where niineH are made knnwthal it in not only the likelihood of values that makes
n mine, but tho character and ability of the men hack of it HusinosH management in the lirHt
requisite, because without keen commercial foresight the value of the property might bo in ilonhl, but where
there are reputations to ho upheld it is a foregone conclusion that houeHty in 'the directorate will lo supple
mented with honeHty from tho grass roots down, or, to In- exact, witli valued that will bo sulllcienllv prolltahle
to make the property an earner for all interested in it.
Those who live In Oregon, and whoso interedt id centered in minim,', know that the management of the
CKACKKR JACK CONSOI.IDATKO GOLD MINKS COMPANY id tried, capable and of reputation. They
are not novices. They are not pushing operation on the Cracker Jack group on hearsay. What they do id
based on study, investigation and fact.
Is not a mine, but a group of miniug claims, Mssessod of junt ad much to recommend
It as may bo found on tho North I'olo or the Cracker-Oregon. Tho property id "young."
A little later on the company can talk of uddayd, and other things that will tontito
enhance the selling prico of slock. At present it In a mine of opportunity. It is a safe place to put ono'd
money. It will not earn right away. If it could tho stock would In huIHiik at par, and it would no longer
bo a mine of opportunity for small investors. !n the Kant it would bo well to tell about the Cracker Creek
mines, but out here in tho Sumpter fields tho story of these propertied is too well known to call for reiietition.
What has been done on the Cracker-Oregon and what id being done in that mine most Oregon people know.
Those who will investigate will find that tho continuation of tho veiiiH (northward) carry the valued up into
tho Cracker Jack. This means intrinsic worth in tho Cracker Jack group. It means prolltd later on, and protlt
means dividends. This is tho story in a nutshell.
Threo tunnels linvo been started on tho Cracker Jack. Work in two In being
prosecuted. When these workings lhavo beeu driven a little farther we can talk
of values. Hut is it not better to buy stock now and nrollt bv the uncoverimt of
those values that every mining engineer in the Sumpter lleldd knows are there ' Is It not wiser to
put your savings in a corporation that Insures the safest kind of security and be among tho "charter
members" when tho tlmo of dividends arrived ? To bu brief,: Is it not wiser policy to secure this
stock while it in low, in order to realixo returns on your money when tho day of prolltd arrives, than bnyjat u
higher price and receive less than you can secure now ?
As One Knows,
That such towns as .Sumpter are built on mining success. To talk of Kudteru
conservatism to you would bo time wasted. Notwithstanding, because you do
know, where sheer luck wins once, method ami business mnnaucmciit win a
dozen in oh Therefore, the safest wav is to follow tho successful banner. The men
back tho CltACKKIt JACK CONSOI.IDATKI) (iOI.I) MINKS COMI'ANY Imvu
t y per nee to guide them. They have had to do witli the California, over in Cable Cove
district; they have neum.. nown through tho Cracker-Oregon, and their excellent service for the (iolconda
established a record in mining annals. Now they say that the Cracker Jack is all that any of tho other mined
could be, and they declare that the day is not far distant when this property will be one of tho big producers of
the district. They claim that It will be u dividend payer that no stockholder need bo ashamed of, and they am
selling stock in tho Cracker Jack for tho sumo reason they sold stock in tho others. They do not wish to Hir
mit anything to jag about oenlng and equipping tho iiroerty. Thev aro not growing careless because the
treasury of the company Is well supplied witli capital. 1'hey aro looking forward to tho timo when they will
need much more money for ttinipmciit, and when that time arrives thoy intend to Imi found prepared This
company is willing that you snoiild reap your reward from tho eiruiugd of this mine. Ho one of tho 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 fato for missed opKirtuiiities. They sought likely
propositions 'and linked their fortunes with them. It is simple enough if you will but take the time to investi
gate. Tho property is with you, and the reputations of the men who offer you this stock are represented by
threo monuments that will withstand much discussion the California, the Cracker-Oregon ami the (iolconda.
