THE OTHER DAY when an Elderly Gentleman backed me up against the corner cigar itore and enquired if I was the "OPPORTUNITY" Man. I admitted the soft impeaoh
ment and also smiled widely. The E. Q. grabbed me by the ooat lapel and delivered' himself to this effect: "There never was a gold mine. There isn't one today. There
never was a cent made in any kind of mining. The only reason a gold mine is called a gold mine is 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 knew. He had invested in mining stock once. The thing was a fake, of course. No more mining stock for
him. Not in a thousand years." -.,
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 class of people who swallow the bait of any ny-by-niisht fakir, or wildcatter who peddles out cheap stock and promises the
earth, or at least a thousand dollars for every one put in. His proposition may be the wildest kind of "Wildcat," his roseate statements entirely unsupported, his "mine" a pipe
dream, and he himself belong in jail, but if hi stuff is only cheap enough a cent or two a share they will buy it. Such people are not investors1 they are "suckers" buying
experience. But they hurt legitimate mining because ever afterwards they will keep on'telling how they "invested" in mining and lost their money.
With regard to the Elderly Gentleman, I steered him along to my Office, showed 'him ore specimens, photos, charts, maps, Government Reports, and statements of Honolulu
people who have visited the "MAYFLOWER." He revised his conviction about gold mining to the extent that there was, at least, one. gold mine, and that we owned it. Before
he new, he broke in for 1000 Shares. Other mining stocks and other. Mayflowers can He 'bought at less prices, but our Mayflower is the Mayflower Quartz & Channel Mining Co.
and the prico is 25 Cents a Share. Drive a tack in that fact
Yes. our "MAYFLOWER" is the real thing, with assurances attached. Buy the Stock at 25 Cents. You're missing a trick if vou don't. Bo"brisk and get in your order.
Buy it. It's a brilliant buy. BUY "MAYFLOWER" STOCK. BUY IT N0W1 a
