They know' exactly what is requiredf w hat it will cost, and what they can produce with it. The business is al ready assured, amounting to several hundred thousand dollars for 1017. Their business forced them out of Plant No. 1, which became too small, so they purchased land on trackage and built plant No. 2. partially equipped and running, which is 50x210 feet, with provisions made for doubling this space, all of which is paid for with }>erfect title. They have a business which will require the full 50x240 feet, and the equipment which they are purchasing is for the full space, with a duplicate cupola of 10-ton |*»r hour ca pacity, additional core-room and ovens and cleaning room. They make castings for aeroplanes, marine engines, motors, trucks, tractors, automobiles (gasoline, electric and steam), auto accessories, plumbing supplies, grain sep erators, cream separators, special machinery; for the highest and !>est class of machine shops, difficult and in tricate castings, castings made to chemical analyses and mechanical construction. tm-nced lo reud At first with < yul tal belief in her ability, hut soon with absorbed attention It was a simple story, hut so replete was it with human interest that m spite of mvself It held mv attention, and I read thru to the end before laying the magaslne down Then I commenced to walk rest legal) back and forth I wa- flght lug hard for the mastery of my emo Hons Robert hs>d gun* beyond ntv Influence.

They have a foun dry right here at homo that has long been needed and they deliver by truck in Detroit every day. The greater portion of the castings used in Detroit are shipjied in and the most of these from outside the state. They are capitalized for $250,000. The maximum amount of stock_thiit_vviil_be outstanding, as is now esti mated. when all the capital required to accomplish the aliove purjxise is secured, is $150,000. The stock being offered, sold and remaining, is treasury stock. Two thousand shares of common stock of a par value of SIO.OO each, ful paid and non-assessable, is offered at $12.00 j>or share. The COMPANY’S BOOKS SHOW that the NET PROFITS NOW. if paid in dividends, would make the stock WORTH MORE than is asked. When the equip ment is installed and operating, which this capital will pay for. and also its proportion of increased expense, the Com pany’s books will show that the next issue will be WORTH far more and the price will be fixed accordingly. The first issue sold at par. SIO.OO. this issue is $12.00, and the next issue will be much more. The plan has been and is to sell the stock on a basis of what the books show it i- worth AT THE TIME OF OFFERING the issue to the public, NOT on any future prospective value which the added equipment this money will purchase, makes, by turning out the greater-volume of business. They have succeeded, they"are making profits every working day. This stock has mot the requirements of the laws of the State of Michigan.
