The charges arc more ethical than

Copy," The Soul Of

ing space, without good " copy," is like a
wooden Indian in tront or a cigar store;
it locates the store, but does not say anything."
Even the smallest country merchant no longer
fills his space with flapdoodle about the " best goods
in town at lowest prices." He knows that merely
"buying space is not advertising; and, having paid for
the space, ordinary business sense counsels him to
make it yield profitable returns.
This can be done only through copy that is
honest, sincere, and convincing. Anybody with
money can buy space in a paper,' but very few can
write the copy that pulls business.
Writing advertisements is our business, and we
have made a study ot it, as every man must do of his
own business. We know how to write paying ads.
Let us hear from you about your ads.

A Clergyman's Opinion
IME WAS when men were ashamtd to admit that they owned an interest in a mining proposition. They bought mining stock on the sly and kept it dark from their friends
and families because they regarded their investment as a pure speculation, a bet and a gamble, and a long chance. But times have changed in recent years, and so has
minlwr. The mininir business has advanced just the same as lias the suear business. Men of national importance, identified with bankine. insurance, railroads and the lead
ing industrials are now interesting themselves in mining because mining has been reduced by modern methods, a knowledge of geology, and the expertness of modern engineers to
a science and a sure thing. Mining is today a very important and basic business and it's a good deal safer than most businesses according to the tale of tell-tale statistics. Also
it is one of the cleanest businesses under the sun. A Methodist minister was recently reproached by one' of his flock for identifying himself with a gold-mining proposition, and
this was his retort, in substance, in an open letter published in his local broadsheet:
"Conscientious scruples AGAINST buying stock in a gold mine? I have no such scruples. I purchased my stock as a matter of principle. The Sermon on the Mount and the
"ten commandments don't come into the matter and' theology needn't. The fact is, I admire a miner's wealth. It is dean. There is no blood or orphans' or widows' tears on it It
"is acquired away from the scheming and cut-throat competition that characterizes ordinary ventures, where the success of one man so often means the disaster and downfall of some
"other man, or, perhaps, a number of men. Nobody has been pinched; nobody has been wronged. The miner who digs a fortune out of the ground has the satisfaction that he
"hasn't robbed a soul, even though he becomes a hundred times a millionaire. As I look at the matter, there are few producers of wealth. The many live on the few. The only man
"comrable with the miner is the farmer. He gets what he has direct from nature, but he produces perishable wealth. While he meets a want, his contribution to the world's
"wealth therefore is not a permanent one like the miner's. The gold miner is today the king wealth producer of the country, and I honor him above all others. .It is no dishonor; it
"needs no apologv to emulate his examnle or assist him in his efforts. That is the whole question in a nutshel."
And who shall say that this clergyman wasn't right, be his critic a Methodist, an Episcopalian, a Catholic, or a Chinese Confucian?
Apart from being the cleanest business, mining is one of the best and safest and soundest and most conservative businesses under the sun PROVIDED you get into the right
mine with the right people.
The "MAYFLOWER" Mine is a proven gold mine, and certified as such by the U. S.' Government, the Nevada County Promotion Committee who are on the spot, and by
several Honolulu gentlemen who have been on the spot, and it is in the hands of honest and honorable men. Its guiding spirit is an American who located and developed by his
genius one of the greatest mines that exist in Canada the "Sultana" a man who was honored on his last visit to Europe by being elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical So
ciety of England, and that honor is not conferred promiscuously on Tom, Dick, Harry, or your uncle Annie. Enough said. BUY MAYFLOWER STOCK. BUY IT NOW !
