Mining is a legitimate and honorable enterprise. It contributes immensely to the national wealth. It has been the source of some of our great fortunes. Because there is something magical in the suggestion of gold or coal or copper taken out of the ground, sharpers have made mining an instrument of successful deception. They have tricked people into investing their savings in worthless or even non-existent mines. Perhaps you who read this have bitten at an advertisement in a reputable publication, which pretended to place the wealth of some western El Dorado at your feet for a few hundred dollars. Doubtless your money has disappeared. It is for the purpose of giving you the protection of a knowledge both of legitimate mining and of the ways of thieves that this article is published. AMERICA is the land of the free and the country of opportunity for all. Incidentally, it is free hunting-ground for sharpers, and a land of opportunity for the unscrupulous. No such chances for fraudulent business exist anywhere else in the world. Americans are the richest people on earth, and the most easily parted from their money. Those whose sole ambition is to get rich quick very frequently help some other man to get rich quick. Society owes no debt to either of these. It is obliged to support them both. This is wrong both as a moral and as an industrial proposition. Once, a dollar was spent to mine a dollar. To-day two are spent: One dollar goes into blasting powder, the other into advertising and office furniture. No doubt you have heard the age-old legend of the Mother Vein of Gold, which appears and vanishes, now and again, in this corner of the world. Superstition regarding this great original vein of gold is found wherever men seek the precious metal. The feverish Spaniards called this phantom lode the Madre d’Oro, or “Mother of Gold.” Now it is located in Mexico, now in India or Peru, California or Australia. Tradition says that Montezuma got his gold from this great vein, which lay in a secret valley whose whereabouts was jealously guarded by three priests of the war tribe, sole possessors of the knowledge. Any intruder who by chance or design looked down into this valley was smitten absolutely blind. Tradition among the successors of the Aztecs says that when Montezuma passed, the Madre d’Oro sank back again into the earth, and has been seen no more. Men still follow the phantom vein. Those who see it, even in their dreams, still are smitten blind.

Joe Waltz is the great-grandson of the famous Lost Dutchman, Jacob Waltz. The location of the gold mine was lost with the death of Joe's grandmother, or so he thought. His parents have been loose-lipped about their heritage, a mistake that forces them into hiding, and now places their lives in jeopardy because of an eavesdropping con man, bent on obtaining the treasure at any cost. Joe's ex-girlfriend, now privy to his true identity, also joins in the search, and has enlisted the help of her bumbling brother and friend in her scheme. With clues left by his late grandmother now surfacing, Joe's life and the famous Lost Dutchman's gold are in growing peril.

Author Frank McQuirk's life began on an auspicious note, and he has since spent a lifetime exploring and perfecting his psychic abilities. As the seventh son of an Irish family, he was destined to have special abilities. Now, in this intimate and heartfelt autobiography, he shares the details of his life and his remarkable gifts. He has lived in nine different countries and is an adept student of their customs, beliefs, and practices. For a decade, he studied under master psychic Mary Valla and conducted classes on the law of abundance and aura viewing. The aura is a band of dim light that surrounds everyone and is normally invisible to our eyes. Frank discovered a simple method whereby everyone can view the aura in fifteen minutes-and he now shares his technique in full detail here. Frank also shares the secrets to astral travel and how you can harness a simple method to eliminate negative feelings in your life, rebuild your peace of mind after trauma, or recapture your dignity after embarrassment. Along with his discoveries, Frank shares the details and adventures of his life with the charm of a leprechaun and the audacity of the legendary Pooka, a phantom dog sent to help those who deserve divine guidance. Frank and the Pooka shared a lifelong bond. Through his life's lessons, adventures, and pains, Frank has found a way to navigate it all with hope. His approach to life is to avoid negativity, and this mindset will bring peace of mind to those who embrace it.
