Will Erect Big Warehouses Here- Greatest Plant of : its Kind in America
Other Plate Glass Company's Original Stock Sold at $100
Per Share and Was Raised to $280 W.thin Couple of Years
Greatest plant of its kind in America. This is a strong statement but we can prove it
Here is a chance for live wires to invest in an honest proposition and make a fortune. .
Omaha chosen as distributing point on accaunt of adequate shipping facilities our main
offices and all moneys to be (and are now) haniled in Omaha.
You Never See Plate Glass Company's Stock on Board
of Trade or in Backet Shops For Sale There is a Reason
WHY once acquired it is too valuable an asset to let go of all eastern plate glass oonv
pany's stock is held by few families and their relatives,
OUR COMPANY IS ENDORSED BY THE COMMERCIAL ; CLUB OF LARAMIE,
WYOMING-alao the state chemist of Wyoming, Wilber 0. Knight, said: "LARAMIE. THE
MOST NATURAL GLASS MAKING CENTER IN THE UNITED STATES.'
Where Plant is Located
Th property on which these minerals are deposited is located at
Laramie. Wyoming, a city of 9,000 people, on the main line of the Union
Pacific Railroad, and on the Big Iratnle River, 573 miles west of Omaha
and 163 miles north ot Denver.
Plate Glass Industry History
Up to forty years ago all the plat glass used on this continent waa
Imported front Europe. For the forty years past, th greater portion of th
supply used her haa been Imported and up to the close of the year 1911
alraoBt fifty per cent of our supply came from Belgium and northern
France. Since. th war haa been going-on, we have been unable to import
this product. The factories of Belgium and France have been demolished
and those ot Germany closed down as the consequences.
DEFIES TORPEDOES TO

Mr. Morlts Meyer, leaver this evening
for New York. Miss Meyer Balls neat Sat
urday for C'hrUtlania, Norway, whar ber

wiiile Miss Mayer waa continuing ber
nuaickl work there. Kti will be aucom
paoied to Kw York by her mother, who
will remain eaat for several weeks,
United States Exports Now
Just before the beginning of th present year the I'nited States, with
a fifty per cent deficit, began to export plat glass to Europe In large quan
tities. To aemand is bound to uecoui greater and greater each year
For many years after the war Is over w will be called on to supply the
world with this product.' Th factories of our country have enough orders
lor Plate glass on their rues to keep them busy lor three years to coin.
- . What MU be the Result?
W must either do without plat glass or pay an exorbitant prlc
for It. Com with us to share th profits ot this industry and build up for
yourself and your children a great fortune which you may not otherwise
We Have an Inexhaustible Supply
V have possession ot an lnwxhauHttbl supply and superior quality
ot all th minerals necessary for manufacturing plat glass. No other
company can say this. Our plant Is th only on west of th Mississippi
river. It will b la cloa range of Omaha. Chicago. Milwaukee. Minneapolis.
St. Paul. St. Louis. Kansas City, Houston, Dallas and will be th sole
supply for th cntlr west and Pacific coast.
Some Advantages and Comparisons
Her ar a few of th advantages and comparisons to which w wish
to call your attention:
1. Th present plat glass cnmpaule are compelled to gather their
minerals from scattered points, some as far as (00 miles away from their
factory, the hauling and transportation entails enormous expense. Bom
of their minerals they must either manufacture or Import, while all our
raw material Is Immediately available and can b delivered to ill factory
by auto truck ready, lor us at one-lourtn the cost of other factories.
The Comparison of Cost , ,
The following is a fair comDarluon of the coat of delivering raw ma
terials to tho western and eastern plants:
Cost To Eastern riant
White Sand for Mix '. f 1.90 per ton
Lime Stone 1.70
Gypsum . . . . .
18.00 per ton
6.00 per ton
Cost To "Western Plants
"0 per ton
30 per ton
5.00 per ton
Not a Wild-Cat Scheme
But a straightforward, legitimate money-making and a business prop
osition, which can be proven to your satisfaction by Investigation.
Now is Chance to Bay
.25 per yd.
Here we have a Kavlnt; of $20.63 on a small demonstrative quantity.
You can readily see that plate glass ran be manufactured at Laramie for
about one-half what It now costs the eastern plants.
Cheap Fuel Big Item
2. Other factories MUST BUY their fuel at MARKET PRICES. W
obtain th necessary fuel and oil for the low cost of producing.' Thla item
la no small one and Is worthy of attention.
Free Water for Power
3. Another very Important consideration Is the power which other
factories must furnish by burning vast quantities of fuel, while w will
have free water power, sufficient to run a dosen glass plants. Th saving
on power alone will be sufficiently Urge to pay our stockholders a hand
The Most Important Thing
4. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, to be considered in this undertaking is
experience and associates. Mr. A. C. Bailey has spent his lit in th field
of th plat glasa Industry and ha associated with him the most expert
man In th business who has spent over thirty years at this profession. H
also haa associated with him men ot fewer years in lit but none th lesa
capable in th modern methods ot manufacturing plat glass.
SUMMING UP THESE ADVANTAGES: Cheaper raw material, cheap
er fuel, cheaper power and equal proficiency, have we not a most wonderful
proposition and would you not Ilk to Invest your money- In such an en
A stock company has been organised with a capital of $1,500,000.
Some stock is now being offered at f 100.00 per share aa follows:
5,000 shares preferred stock, guaranteeing a 7 per cent dividend,
payable semi-annually t E00, 000
10,000 share common stock 1.000,000
Total Capital 11.600,000
The plant will cost approximately: $1,250,000 and about June 15 of
this year w will start to break ground for the plant which will be rushed
to completion by every possible means. Within nine months we will be
turning out from 150,000 to 200,000 feet of plate glass each month. More
as grinders and polishers are completed.
Profit $100,000 per Month Real Estimate by Experts
Experts say we can produce glass at a cost of from 11c to 13c per
foot whereas it Is now costing eastern plants 19c to 22c- per foot. Our
cost 'of production is reduced about 60 per cent of the usual rate, and with
an output of 500.000 feet per month, a profit of not lesa than 1100,000 per
month will b made.
Factory Will Pay for Self Within Year
Th factory should pay for itself In a little more than on yesr.
As to the Market
Of our production. It is only a wast of time to go into detail aa you
well know the existing conditions.
Many Will Buy Stock-It Will Sell Rapidly
Those who hav already heard of our project are making request for
blocks ot this stock. This Is th first attempt we hav mad to sell any
stock to th general public Gt In on th ground floor prices. Within a
few weeks it will all b disposed of.
