kROFITS CAN BE MADE in buying and selling stocks, but, in the last analysis, the man who makes
the most money is the man who gets in at the beginning on a good thing and sticks religiously
with it while it marches forward to successive successes. Ewa, Oahu, Pioneer, Puunene, Pahala,
Makawcli, Brewery. Railroad which you will, any or all of them, and also others. Original holders of
such scciuitics are the people who have made, and arc making, the dizsy money. And it was ever thus
nnd ever shall be.
Ic sure you enter right at thi right time on the right thing thsn let the procession move ahead and
don't worr. Grow up with the conpany. Its progress is profit to you every time, even though it takes
n little while to realize in dividends. You are accumulating money through the increasing value of your
holdings, This is particularly true in the Gold Mining business. Fint issues of stock are usually sold at
a low figure to enable the new cntjrprise to make a start. The shar.'s may be worth a great deal more
than they arc offered at, but the sacrifice has to be made in order to inaugurate proceedings. Wc consider
"MAYFLOWER" Stock to be intrinsically worth 50 cents a share today, and it is going to go to 50 cents
pretty soon just as sure as the sun will shine tomorrow. But in financing a Gold Mine the fint man's mon

THE LATE CECIL RHODES, the multi-millionaire mining king of South Africa, once said: "Buy a
good gold mining stock. Buy it .when first offered, and before you dream of it your dimes have
increased to dollars and your dollars to hundreds of dollars. It is no uncommon thing for a
good gold mfnc.to return its original stockholders a hundred-fold. In ns other field is there the same oppor
tunity offered for money-making, particularly for the person of medium or moderate means. A small sum
may make, a fortune. Mort money is made by those who get in first with the first-class comoanies. And
there is security behind a gold mining stock, the raw material of mon:y itself what wc call in South
Africa the 'stuff' the 'stuff' at whose feet governments, cities, banks, railroads, mortgages, corporations,
nnd all forms of business bow the knee and doff the hat."
' He was right. And MAYFLOWER stock is just the stock that Cecil Rhodes would have bought him
self and advised you to buy. It is a safe, sound, permanent, and money-making investment. There is
nothing that can come within a Wireless touch of it today in the Hawaiian Islands in our opinion. And
it is not of the, character of those long-drawn-out "Mahope" propositions which will take years and added
years to win out You will get qui:k action on your monev in MAYFLOWER. Under crude methods about
ONE MILLION DOLLARS have already been taken out of our Mine, but with modern, up-to-date methods,
machinery, and brains, wc can take out mariy times that amount in short order and make a fortune for ev
