FACTS AND FIGURES
Touching the Rock Island Tropical
The company holds clear title to $:!00 to $r00 per acre, have paid
12.0'iu acres of hardwood timber.
This timber before it was purchas
ed was found to contain more than
trees to the acre where it ap
peared to be of average and uniform
Thc:-e trees wi'.l average over 2,
Oi ii feet of lumber ptr tree, which
will amount to 24C,oOO loet per acre,
or a total of 2,Si;o,(t(i0.uOo feet.
That it will average only one-fourth
of this amount; that will still mean
t;o. (mo fret per acre, or a total pro
portion of more than T'Kl.OOH.uih)
feet. This lumber includes a large
proportion of such woods as ma
hosany, zapote, chicle, Spanish ce
dar, paqtie, and many other equally
valuable varieties, some of them
selling in the American market at
$2."D per thousand.
It sells at the railroad in Mexico
at $00 to $loi) per thousand, or an
average at American railroad mar
kets at $200 per thousand.
That the cost of cuitins, milling and
marketing this lumber will amount
to $:!o per thousand. That will leave
an average profit of $o!) per thous
. That only one-half of this can be
i realized. There will stiil be a net
, profit of $2:1 per thousand, which
1 multiplied by Too.ooo, gives a total
, profit of $17.r,li0,0i:ii.
j This means a net profit of $1,-
4..x.:'.:! on every share of stock in
J the company, without even taking
into account the considerable sums
of money which may be realized
i frimi the sale of dye-woods, medic
, inal plants, wild rubber, and other

I BUT SUPPOSE AGAIN
' That only one-half eif this can be
realized; what then?
; One share eif .stock is worth $20(1

TO SUM THE MATTER UP.
We have 2,SuO,0(i(),000 feet of lum
ber in sight. To quiet your doubts.
we call it only one-fourth of this, or
Tuit.ooo.OOi) feet. This should net
us $r,u per thousand, or $::5,000,OUO.
We cut this estimate down to one
half of that, or $17,500,000. This
gives us a preifit of $1,45S.33 on each
and every share of stock, which
looks so large that we cut" it in two
and make it $720.10 per share, ami
stiil, basing eiur estimate on the
proceeds from 1-10 of the visible re
sources, our average annual divi
dends will amount to SCVa per cent
of the par value of our stock, even
if every share were issued and out
standing. BUT HERE IS ANOTHRER POINT.
Only a small proportion of our
stock has been sold, and it is more
likely that we will never need to
sell more than one-half of our stock.
This will neit only double our divi
dends, but double our holdings as
well, since the unsold steick will be
issued as stetck dividends.
