Certificate Vignette

Founder and first president A.D. Jones was a drug store clerk. He and his boss J.K. Miller staked a claim on Bull Hill. Jones, not being a miner, just threw his hat in the air and started digging where it came down. He hit a vein assaying $600- worth of gold to the ton, and became a millionaire by the time he was 39. [Ref: Hills, 1900, pg. 368/ Sprague, 1953, various pages]
