The Gold Mining Company (location, Music Mountains, A. T,) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its
possibilities have never been exceeded. Every share should double in
value within a year, and they may quadruple, as they are based on

great on aecounl of its known richness and promise.
The shares arc made small so that any one can invest. Subscriptions
for live shares are as welcome as those for hundreds.
Every dollar of earnings will go to the stockholders in dividends, as
there is nothing else that they can be used for.
