THE NEBHASXA INDEPENDENT 15 3. r Or is it lying idl, or hidden in an unproductive investment. A. I ' i 1 i 1 ' LSU2& I U U I IVI O II GV UtO lit TO P YOU: Most ambitious people are anxious to know How to Make Money- One way to make money without large capital, without long and continued labor; to make it honorable, quickly, and in a large amount in proportion to the investment is to Buy Good Mining Stock A noted Methodist minister says of mining: "I admire a miner's wealth. It is clean. There is neither blood nor tears on it. It is acquired away from the scheming and cut-throat competition that characterizes ordinary ventures, where the success of one man often means the disaster and downfall' of some other man, orperhaps a number of men. , Nobody has been pinchedjnobody has been wronged. The miner who digs a fortuneout of theground has the satisfaction of knowing that he hasn't rob soul, even though he becomes a thousand times a millionaire. The man who makes a fortune on the board of trade or the stock exchange or in building UP gigantic business house adds nothing to the world's store of available wealth. He is richer because some one is poorer. The miner, on the other hand, whether he digs out $10 or $100,000 adds that much to the world's wealth. The only man comparable with the miner is the farmer. lie gets what" he has direct from nature, but he produces perishable wealth. The gold miner is today the king of wealth producers of the country, and I honor him above all others. It is no dishonor; it needs no apology to emulate his example or assist him in his efforts." . A Mine Now in Operation Not a Prospect. A group of Nebraska people have recently bought the well-known Worley Mine, located in the Greenhorn Mountains, in the famous Gold Fields of Eastern Oregon. This property is not a raw prospect, but a well developed mine, for several years ranked among the producers. It ia in the center of the rich Greenhorn District, surrounded by producing mines, with every advantage of timber, water, transportation, and equipment for future work. THE GREENHORN GOLD MINING COMPANY has been formed to take over and operate this property. The history of this mine warrant the belief that it will become one of the biggest mines of the country. ; Thousands of. Dollars in Bullion have been shipped from this mine by former operators who were working under a lease. Bullion receipts from the United States Mint and from the banks of Baker City, Oregon, now in the hands of the new company, prove the richness of its ore veins. The following from among many bullion receipt show results obtained: - United States Gold for the Bullion. The following is an exact reproduction of one of the certificates of the United States Mint officers, returning payment for one shipment of gold bul lion. This is only one of many returns received. Its accuracy can be verified by addressing the United States Assay Office at Boise, Idaho. .... U. S. Mint Sekvicb, Cr. Acc. Form N. 43 D. " , ' 5ixl4. Hunter & Brum mer. No. 890.

He carried out his pa.t of the contract, but after he had made the last payment Mr. Mickey refused to deed back the farm, claiming that the amount Samuewn had been pi) Ing him annually was rent. An action was then brought In the district court to compel Mr. Mickey to deed back tae farm, and fortunately the cane carce up before Judge Kvan, a fellow poli tician, who decided It In Samuelaota favor.
