-" - 3.'
THE OTHER DAY when an Elderly Gentleman backed me up agakst the corner cigar itore and enquired if I waa the "OPPORTUNITY" Man. I admitted the soft impeach'-.
ment and also smiled widely. The E. Q. crabbed me by the coat lapel and delivered 'himself to this effe'et: ' There never wa f. gold mine. There isn't one today. There
never was a cent made in any kind of mining The only reason a fold mine is calUd a gold mino h because people are foolish enough to dump their good gold into it. They
never get any out. And as often as not there's no mine at all. He know. He had invested in mining stock once. The thing was a fake, of course. No more mining stock for
hfm. ' Not in a thousand years." i
Now, wouldn't that upper-cut you? Where his Nibs thought the world's present supply of gold came from, gets me. Perhaps he thought it all came from Bishop's
Bank. The E. 0., nevertheless, is representative of a olass of peopla who swallow the bait : any ny-by-nifiht fakir, or wildcatter who peddle i out cheap stock and promises the
earth, or at least a thousand dollars for every, one put in. His proposition may be the wildi it kind of -"Wildcat," his roseate statement entirolv unsupported, his "mine" a pipe
dream, and he himself belong in jail, but if his stuff Ls only cheap enough a cent or two a ihare they will bny it Such peopleare not investors they are "suckers" buying
experience. t But they hurt legitimate mining because ever afterwards they will keep on 1 Uing how they "invested" in' mining 'and lost their money.
With regard to the Elderly Gentleman, I steered him along to my Office, showed him re specimens, photos, charts, maps, Government Reports, and statements of Honolulu
people who have visited the "MAYFLOWER." He revised his conviction about gold minin to the extent that there was, at least, one goldmine, and that we owned it. Before
jic new, ue Drone in lor iuuu snares, other mining stocks and other Mayflowers can fce b ught at less prices, but our' Mayflower is the Mayflower Quartz & Channel Mining Co.
and the price is 25 Cents a Share. Drive a tack in that fact v .
, Yes, our "MAYFIOWER" is the real thing, with assurances attached. Buy the Stock it 25 Cents. You're missing a trick if you don't. Be brisk and get in your order.
