GREAT MINERAL DISTRICT
An Interesting Description of South
East Kootenay.
CHARLES ESTMERE TELLS THE TALE
He Gives the Spokesman-Review
an Idea of What is Being:
Done Up Here.
Get Your Job Printing at The Herald Office
Charles Kstmcre returned fiom a hasty
trip to Spokane last week. While in
Spokane he was interviewed' by a representative of tbe Spokesman-Review, and
be furnished information that will give
outsiders an idea of the scope and won-
deiful mineral resources ol South Kast
Kootenay, tbat is just now coming into
such prominence throughout the world,
by virtue ofthe transportation facilities
now secured by the Crows Nest Pass railway. Mr. Estmere, iu his interview,
covers the entire district, showing that
un immense amount of woik has been
done, and that next season will see
many profitable shippers iu South Kast
Kootenay.
Craubrook, located in tbe center of
this rich territory, and the natural dis*
tributing point for the many prosperous
camps that will floutisb, will profit
greatly by the great movement that will
be inaugurated in this district next
spring. And there will be many prosperous communities rise up as the result
of this development.
Mr. Estmere, who is interested iu
Kimberly, and is lhe agent for tbat
townsite, speaks ofthe prospects of the
town as the terminus of what is known
ns the North Star branch of the Crows
Nest line, and says:
"The branch Hue to run from Cranbrook to Kimberly is beiug finally located. It is one of tbe most important of
the spurs of the Crows Nest toad, as it
taps the richest mineral belt in the country, the Sullivan aud North Star galena
zone. This road will be one of the easiest built In all the system, tbere being
but little cutting and filling necessary.
Work upon the branch will hetiin within
a fortnight.   It will be 17 miles long,
"The tonnage that will be given to
this branch line will be immense. Already the North Star mine is being opened to a larger extent in anticipation of
the improved shipping facilities. The
greatest depth on the property is no feet
and it is the intention to sink the shaft
at once to the 300 foot level.    The com*
pan j   llaa   increa-icd   Us   wai t_tity   fnrom.
There is complaint of lack of-skilled
miners in the camp.
The North Stir Oronp.
"The North Star is a mile and a half
back from Kimberly, nnd is reached by
a switchback wagon road two aud a half
miles long. The superintendent informs
me that the compauy expects to haul its
ore to the railroad in Kimberly at au expense of not more than 40 cents per ton,
A Mr. Kellogg, well known iu Montana
mining circles, is the new superintendent of the North Star, succeeding N. M.
Cm-ran, who becomes business manager.
The company owns more than twenty
claims. On the Midnight, oue of tbe
company's properties adjoining the
North Star, prospecting work has been
done and the miners are drifting from
the bottom of a 30-foot shaft in good ore.
Water is the main trouble on the mountain. Good pumps are necessary to
handle it.
•'R. O. Jenning has been working bis
properties, the Dean and All Over, just
below the North Star. Water has caused
suspension, but it is understood that
pumps will be put on in the spring and
work vigorously pushed.
"Farther down the hill is the Stem-
winder. D. IV Maun, ofthe North Star
owned half of it and recently bought
tbe other half from Waile Wade for
$5,000 cash. This property is rich and
is supposed to carry the main ledge or
mother lode of the North Star aud Still i
van Group district.
"Ou the Goody fraction, adjoining the
Stem Winder, a tunnel is in 80 feet and is
being driven to tap the ledge at depth.
David Newell and Chares. Farrell of Fort
Steele are the owners.
The Marvelous Sullivan Qroup.
"The Sullivan Group is on the opposite hill. The Sullivan is a wonder. I
am aware that it sounds like n big story,
but I kuow it to be a fact lhat the properly shows a body of galena at least 100
feet wide, wilh the miners still drifting
for a wall. You will remember a recent
strike which was vatiously reported
from no to 30 feet wide. A hanging wall
was fouud ami au open cut was run for
35 feet, uncovering a solid body of galena. Then the miners were put to work
at a point 100 feet from the hangiug wall
directly in line wiih the open cut. Sink*
Ing through the iron cap here, solid ga*
lena was again encountered, and drifting
is beiug carried forward in the same direction as the former open cut to deter*
mine if tbere ia a wall, or if it is simply
a mountain of galena covered with an
iron cap. The shaft which the company
sank to a depth of 55 feet proves that
the galena deposit ii of that depth at
least. The ore is uniform in character
aud is of about $40 value wherever encountered. The company is Increasing
its force and development is to go steadily forward.
"Tbe formation is difli ult to describe
on that hill, There are apparently
counter leads, or else the whole mountain
is a body or blanket of galena. On either side of tbe Sullivan group, at right
angles to what is believed to be the
trend of tbe ledge, other bodies of galena
are found. The Big Dipper group shows
particularly well in ibis respect. A
shaft sunk through 80 feet of wash en
countered galena all through it, some of
it in great boulders weighing tors.
Carbonate on Luke Creek.
"Another shipper which will contribute to the earnings of the Kimberly
branch will be the Carbonate 011 Luke
creek upon which there is two and oue-
li.ilf feet of shipping ote assaying from
f4u to fi.--. A shaft is dowu 38 feet all
iu ore.
"Over in the Mojie district the St.
Eugene mine has over ao men at work
getting the mine in shipping shape.
The road connecting lhe properly with
the railroad is cumpleted. Tbe properly
is ready to supply many a car load of ore,
having about 40,000 Ions in the dump.
(Iood Lack tbe Pint Day.
The Moyie and Queen of the Hills
claims Hie below the St. Eugene on the
tame ledge.   The vein runs up the hill
straight as a string. These properties
were bonded receullj to tbe Fort Steele
Development syndicate for $125,000 and
|8ooo waa paid iu cash. Five men were
put to work and the first day they came
iuto a great body of galena in au old
tunnel. The former owners had run in
70 feet and having beeu thrown elf the
ledge by a break in the beginning they
were unwittingly following alongside an
immense ore body with only stringers of
ore which were little spurs of the vein.
Ike Williams, late of the North Star,
took charge of the force of meu and after
inspecting the property concluded he
could find ore by turning to the right.
He did so at a point 20 feet from the
tunnel face aud came into 22 feet of
clean galena wiih uo wall yet in sight.
The company will take up the bond.
On tbe Lakeshore claim four men are
driving in on the ledge. The owners arc
holding it at $150,000.
•'It has been a busy season in quartz
and placer mining on Palmers bar and
Nigger creek but I have not been over
there.
'On Sand creek the Halls Mines syndicate of Nelson have bonded the Blue
Grouse and is running a 100-foot tunnel
to catch the ledge at depth. The syndicate is said to be negotiating for tbe Empire, adjoining, belonging to Major
Steele.
The London & Waterfall property is
near by. Langley brothers of Fort Steele
own it. They bonded the Blue Grouse
to the Hall people. Ou tbe London
they have five feet of ore carrying galena,
gold and copper averaging over $100 per
ton.
Bull River. Famous Ledge.
"On Bull river is the famous copper
ledge which cau be traced with the eye
for over four miles. The Boyer group is
oue of the promising properties with a
siiurt down So feet. ' The George Waiion
property hi» been under bond since Iut
year to Spokane parties, but Ib not working.   It is a rich copper prospect.
"Work is being prosecuted on the
Chickanionstone and Mabel claims belonging to Robinson aud Johnson. Adjoining are the Grifiith properties upon
which 180 feet of work was done last
winter until water stopped it. The lead
was proved to be continuous aud to
carry good value.
On Wild Horse Creek.
"Ou Wild Horse creek the Dibble
group is not working aud no oue knows
why unless it is that the owners are waiting for transportation. Hon. George E.
Foster is the principal owner. There ia
pleuty of rich ore in sight.
"The Emerald, adjoining the Dibble
group, has two leads of high grade ore.
I sampled them myself and got $182 in
gold from one and $43 in gold aud 137
ounces of silver from the other. The
lead is kidueyed, varying from a few
inches to three feet wide. The country
slate for at least 10 feet outside the ledge
is impregnated with gold to the extent
of $10 per tou.
"The Mammoth and Big Three in
Horse Shoe canyon have also been bonded by the Halls syndicate aud are being
developed.
"Colonel Doheity lias bonded the well
known Bald Mountain group to a London company but I did not learn the
price. The property is remarkable foi
its persistent development by Colonel
Doberty who has been working steadily for years without aid and without
proper supplies. J. W. R. Young, of
the Invicta placers, consummated the
deal for tbe colonel,
Big Strike on Boston Olrl.
"Oue of the biggest strikes in the country has been made nu ihe Boston Girl
claim on lloulder cree,k. Thlsisthought
to be the mother lode of the Wild Horse
creek placers, as uo placer gold is found
in Wild Horse above where Boulder empties inlo it. The ore in the Boston Girl
is wonderfully rich, assays having been
obtained away up in tbe thousands. It
has been bonded for a large sum. Editor Grace, of the Fort Steele Prospector,
is interested in it.
"On the Cornucopia aud Colossus on
the east Pork of Wild Horse creek there
iB a 20-foot, iron capped ledge carrying
from $14 to $50 in gold and silver. A
tunnel has cut the ledge diagonally at
slight depth, and an open cut has been
run 40 feet on the vein.
The Upper Bull River group was
bonded to the Fort Steele Mercantile
company and others for $40,000 last fall.
Snow came early and stopped work before even fhe assessment was done. Two
miners, Violet and Wheeler, relocated
the properties this spring, 14 claims in
all. They tell me they have all kindi of
ore up there and I have teen some tbat
is remarkably rich in galena, copper and
gold. i

The work of building a bridge over
Goat river, 17 miles from the landing,
has taken more time than ugis first anticipated, but trains will probably cross
today, Work will then be resumed on
laying track and hurried 011 to the lake.
Theie is u stretch of bad road bed consisting of a gumbo soil, that is similar to
portions near tbe loop ou the east side,
and this may cause some delay. Vet il
is a pretty sure thing that the rails will
be luid lo tbe lake withiu the next ten
days. For the past week, while work
was progressing on the bridge, train load
after traiuload of steel has been scut to
the front from the Cranbrook yards, nud
now there is about enough out there to
complete the liue to the lake. M. J.
Haney. mauager of construction, is at
the front now personally supervising the
work. It will ouly be » few dnys at the
most uow before (rains will be running
right through Lo the lake, and that is an
event lhat the people of South East
Kootauay have looked forward to with
no little anxiety.
Orel! Northern Wants 1 Slice.
Wm. H. Murry, one of Libby'a prominent business men, has just returned
from Jennings, says the Libby News.
He says there arc all kinds of rumors
afloat there about the future pros-Kris ul'
that place and says that in the light of
present events there is no further
thought of pulling off auy of the Kootenay river boats, as contracts have already been signed and other arrangements perfected whereby enough business iB already in sight to keep them ull
busy for the next season.
The most important feature of a general nature tbat has developed is the intention of Jim Hill to make Jeuiitngsa
competitive point. The advantages
which will accrue to tbe people of this
section through such au arrangement
are too well understood to need any comment. This move ou tbe part of the
management of the Great Northern te
made necessary by the construction of
the Craws Nest Pass railroad, which
tags tbe rich mineral zone around Fort
Steele and Wardner, and the extensive
coal fields of the Elk river country.
This will deprive the Great Northern of
the monopoly it has heretofore luul as
the common carrier of that vast country
unless tbe navigation of (he Kootenay is
not only continued, but improved, aud
it is a pretty safe proposition to gamble
on lhat this road is not overlooking anything which has a tendency to increase
the earning capacity of its rolling stock.
Aside from the general importance of
making Jennings a competitive point,
the most important deal affecting tbe
boats for the coming season is lhe signing of a contract with the managers of
the Dibble group of mines for the transportation to Jennings of 3000 tons of ore.
This ore is to be ready for shipment by
the time the season of 1899 opens and is
to be delivered from time to time nt a
designated point on the river in sufficient
quantities to keep the boats from losing
any time. 	
Medical Arrange men Is All Right.
Vancouver World: Dr. S.J. Tunstall
has returned from a trip lo various
points in the interior. He first went to
Banff where he gave evidence before R
C. Clute, Q. C, the commissioner who
was appointed to inquire into the circumstances surrounding the death of
some men on tbe Crows Nest Pass railway construction works. Dr. Tunstall
has had considerable experience as a
medical man on railway construction
work and his opinion was wanted as an
expert. From what Dr. Tunstall learned at the commission as well as from a
trip over tbe line, he is of the opinion
that tbe medical arrangements on the
construction ofthe Crows Nest Pass line
were first class. Tbe only reason lhat
the men did not get proper treatment
was because the medical uiau was not
notified. 	
Railroad Notes.
Storekeeper Charleston made a trip to
Fernie this week,
Telegraph poles are being distributed
all along the line now.
The track from'Cranbrook east is getting in pretty fair condition.
The train tbat came iu Monday night
made up an hour's time from Fernie to
Cranbrook.
Clinton Campbell left Tuesday for a
trip to the Boundary country. He will
be absent three or four weeks.
A large force of men are at work on
the ground for the sidings below tbe depot and it will boou be ready to lay-
tracks.
Engineer Mcl.ain, M. McGreevey and
Harry Murphy were in town Sunday.
They are lining tbe road through to tbe
lake and left Monday morning to resume
their work.
The C. P. R. will build a freight and
passenger depot at the half-way sidetrack between Warduer and Craubrook
for the accommodation of Fort Steele
merchants. The distance from tbe siding to Fort Steele is between eight aud
nine miles, yet that is better than hauling freight through from Golden or Kal
Ispell.
A man near tbe Goat River crossing
had au hotel constructed of logs with an
tnmense room for a bar, One day recently, when the  railroad gang reached
he place, he did over $400 of business at
the bar. The next day he was called
upon for bis license, and it is stated that
lie failed to produce the necessary documents aud liis liquors were confiscated.
It is told that two barrels of whiskey, 15
cases of beer and one dozen cases of
bottled goods were emptied on the rocks
ami i the sorrowful lamentation-) of the
crowd.
A   GREAT   BEAR   STORY.
A. W. McVittle Meets Five Brains it Ibe
Head of Wild Horse.
A. W. McVittie had an experience recently while prospecting ou upper Wild
Horse that he will not forget very soon.
With 11 prospector's pick in bis hand be
had left camp and was examining tbe
formation ofthe rock along the valley.
lie had wandered about four miles from
camp and was passing down a steep
gulch through a thick growth of underbrush. The trail was not auy too well
defined, and as he was picking bis way
along, he suddenly beard a noise that
seemed to him to be the bleat of a goat.
Looking about ou ibe hill sides he could
discover nothing, and pursued his way
to the bottom of the gulch. Finding
nothing promising in the way of mineral,  he stinted back over the trail, and
hen near lhe spot where he had beard
the blent, began again lo look for tbe
glials. Suddenly his attention was arrested hy the head of a large grizzly or
silver tip cub. He slopped, as it was
only a few feet away tu the short brush.
Theu another came in sight, ouly to be
followed by a third. This was growing
interesting, yet he felt no alarm until
two great shapes arose near the cubs,
and there stood the male and female
bears, great monsters. That was enough
Catchiug bis breath, he turned am]
started down tbat rocky trail at a gait
that surprised himself. He never slackened his pace until he had gone nearly au
half mile and reached a tree that he
could climb. Here he paused to get hla
breath and listen, llut no sound was
heard, and the bears, evidently as much
surprised as himself, had declined to
chase him. When sufficiently rested he
started at right angles up the mountain
side, giving the bears a wide berth, and
did not stop until he reached camp. He
said he bail seen bears before, but never
had met a whole family at such close
quarters, and has uo desire to repeat tbe
experiment.
Died.
C. H. Underbill, who bad been employed iu Ctaubrook for some time as a
painter, died at his home in Fort Slee'.e
on Wednesday .-September 21, of typbo'd
fever. He was taken ill about m week
before, and hurried to bis home where
he might receive lhe care of hi* wife.
He soon rallied and several days before
bis death was able to go out ouce more.
He attended to some busness matters.
aud tbe slight exposure and strain resulted iu a relapse, from which he never
recovered.
C. H. Underbill was from South Hampton, Hug., where bis family was well
known. He bad lived in Fort Steele
about four years and a year and a ball
ago married Miss Jessie Turnbull, of
Golden, wbo survives him, but is prostrated by grief, and her case is tbe more
serious owing to the fact that she is in a
delicate condition.
New Presbyterian Milliter.
Rev. Ball arrived last week from tbe
Manitoba college to take charge of the
Presbyterian church and Rev. McPher-
son will go to Ainsworth where he will
be stationed. Rev. Hall says tbat the
work of securing funds for lhe new church
is progressing favorably, and tbat already
about $350 have been subscribed. A
committee consisting of A. Moffett,
George lire inner aud George Leitch has
been appointed to make inquiries about
a site, plans, cost, etc. Subscriptions
will be received hy any one of these
gentlemen or by Postmaster Beattie.
The Raj wood Brewing Company.
The Fas. Kootenay branch ofthe Redwood Brewing company of Winnipeg,
owned by K. L. Drewry, has been opened fot business with Joseph Mitchell as
manager. It is the purpose of Mr.
Mitchell to keep a full stock of ales, porters, lagers and aereated waters, and the
slock is beiug placed in the cellar this
week. Mr. Mitchell has a fine field for
operations aud is the man lo establish a
profitable business.
CRANBROOK IS THE PLACE
Hill, tbe Clothier.
The People of Winnipeg arc Confident
of tier Future.
AN INTERVIEW WITH JUME HUTCHISON
Capital Coming; In and Buildings
are Going Up All Over
the City.
A representative of Thb IIkrai.d called lhe other evening on Mr. J. I. Hutchison, as it was known lhat though his
trip lo Winnipeg was principally on personal matters, still, that he had met a
niimher of people there ,w ho were more
or less Interested in South Kast Kootenay.
Being asked if he had 1 _rned anything of the Hudson buy company con*
lag into Cranbrook, the judge said: "I
was told on excellent authority that
building open-lions would be begun ou
tie company'-* store bete at a very early
ilate. Mr. Chlpman, the chief commi_-
sioner, is mnv at I'M in->n to 11 antl will
very likely visit Cranbrook on his return
from Uie north."
"Did you hear of any Other business
concerns coming in," was the neat question.
"I did. indeed. A harness, and boot
and shoe maker, a -*-oila water factory,
and perhaps a manufacturer of pottery.
Then I must tell you that I --pent a
morning wilh Mi. H 1. Drewry at the
Redwood brewery, where I saw three
carloads of beer, ale and soda-shipped to
Craubrook, From what Mr. Drcwc ;
told uie I feel sure lhat he is going to
make I strong bill fur a latgc -hate ft
the 'South Bait Kootenay business."
What do Winnipeg people think of
South Mast Kootenay aud Craubrook?"
Well, I'll tell you, South Kast Kootenay in general aud the towns of Cran-
brook antl Fernie in particular are mire
talked about than any other mining section, not excepting the Yukon country.
I was astonished at the number of peo-
who caiied on me to ask questions. Many
of these will invest in one form or another here, but after telling tbt-m all I could
I turned them over lo our Winnipeg
agents, Messrs. Donald, Ross & Co.,
which firm are going tu do Cruubrook a
lot of good in advertising it to the people coming through. Winnipeg being a
jumping off place where most people
crossing the Dominion stop for a day or
two, it is a g Mi advantage to have
someone there who will direct tbe steps
of the people Cran brook ward. I'm glad
to be back, and my partner Mr. McVittie and mrsel* are in harness aud ready
for all tbe business that comes our way."
Hill, the clolhier, who sells clothes
that lit aud at prices that please the people, hus gone i*»*i after a new stock. He
:s a practical tailor, knows what cloth is
worth, buys at bottom prices and will be
in the field with a stock of goods that
will meet with the demands of tbe trade.
Look out for bim next week. He wil)
be ready for business. Watch for bis
announcement.
A   NARROW   ESCAPE.
The Royal Hotel Is Saved From Burning
by a Chance.
The Royal hotel bad a narrow escape
from fire on Tuesday evening. A boarder who occupied a room through which
a stove pipe passed from the first floor,
for some unaccountable reason piled his
clothing, a roll of carpet and some bedding against the pipe and left it. Aboul
6 o'clock smoke was discovered issuing
from oue of the windows 011 the second
story, and the alarm was given and the
blaze soon extinguished, The clothing
and carpet were burned to a crisp the
walls were burned through in several
places, the windows cracked hy the heat
ami if the fire had had two or three minutes more time the hotel would have
1 been lost.

mineral resources, Withiu 11 few weeks
from this litue regular trains will be running from lhe east through the lich.st
aud best part of ibis district lo Kootenay ',
lake, and by waterwny lo Nelson and
other points in West Koo'.cnoy. Then
it will be nn easy matter for capitalists
interested III mining properly, to reach
all parts of South Kast Kootenay from
either the cast or west. It will be only
11 short ride nt lhe most by wagon road
or trnil, to tbe mines mid ptospects in
any part of Ihe district; and the expense
of bringing iu the necessary machinery
to work the various properties now developed tar enough to slv W that tbey
are mines, will be materially reduced.
This change in the conditions of trans*
portntlon means a grand awakening in
this district next season. During the
winter many properties will change
blinds ior already capital is searching
for the best things In this district. Men
with money lo invest in mines almost
invariably wait until Ihey know thai
tbey will be able to handle lhe product
or lbo.se minis. That lime has now
come in South Enst Kootenny, mid lhe
year 1899 will be n great year 111 this district. Thousands an d hundreds ol
thousands of dollars will be Invested
here, uud before the snows of another
winter leave llie hillsides,^ he tonnage
of ore fiom ttii._ district will surpilse 111
milling world.
Cranbrook is fortunate indeed III being
located ill the center of .such a district.
Owing to her commanding position, she
must necessarily be the commercial,
witting u...l railway center. The railroad compauy show iheir recognition of
this fact by maki-ig Hits tbe divisional
point, and the base of operations on tbe
Crows Nest line. Men of commerce
evidently appreciate that Ibis is lhe
truth, for they are locating their wholesale houses here and the largest retail
stocks will be curried iu ibis lown. Mining men all agree that to succeed 111 the
business of handling mines in this district, it will he necessary to hnve their
headquarters at Cranbrook, for men who
come to lhe district will naturally come
lo Cranbrook first.
Owing to i»s locution and the ease with
which it can be reached from all parts of
the district, Cranbrook must necessarily
be the official center as well. The demand for this will become imperative
from one end of the district to the other,
and the government will naturally'accede to that which is so apparent upon
its face.
In fact, lhe concensus of opinion, expressed by word or the investment of
capital, is to the effect that Craubrook is
the natural cen'.er for business of all
kinds in South East Kootenay. Such a
condition means much for ibis towu. Il
means that with the rapid development
lhat will follow throughout the district,
there will come a remarkable growth to
this town, a growth that will surprise
even those who today have every confidence in the future of Cranbrook. South
East Koolcnay is to be a great country
and Craubrook is to be a grent and growing city. Everything points io those
conclusions, and iheiuien who invest in
Cranbrook ami remain wilh the town
will profit by their wisdom.

"IJoi-." who lived with his uncle, left
home before he was *.! and wenl west.
I had been in n.wn lo get Hie plow
sharpened, and on mv way home I saw
Doe climbing across a cloddy field behind a harrow*, and he hulled uie. When
he eiinie out he hung his chill over
the top'of the fence and snid: "I'm
goin'west."
"WhetiV"
"To-night."
••Nol"
"Yes.  Will you .(ine me?"
"What's it cost?"   1 asked.
"Forty-nine dollars second class from
St. Louis lo Denver."
"Have you gol the money*.'"
Due shook bis bend.
"Did you ever sec lhat much money*.'"
"Well, not ut one look, hut I've got
it nil figured out."
"How much have you got?"
"Haven't gol any. but I got a job at
Wliitieci's sluble in Curr street, an* if
you go I'll see lhat you never want.
We can sleep in the bayniow and board
around."
"How'll we get to Rt. Louis?" 1
naked.
"Hide when we're tired of walkin'an'
walk when we can't ride," was bis re-
ply.
The thought of gelling up at morning antl nol knowing where I wns going to sleep at night frightened me,
and 1 told Doc so, nud we parted.
A few years later, when the westbound train stopped al a little bleak
antl dreary mountain town where I.
Inning gone west, had elected t»> drop
anchor. I looked out from the ear window and saw Doc sitting close up to
the croopcr of au old sorrel horse lhat
was hitched lo an express wagon.
1 went over to him at once, for I wns
lonesome. A mountain town is not n
thing that one is apt to love at ilrst
sight. Desolate 1 That is belter limn
four columns of agate to describe the
place. Tbe dry March winds eaine out
of the canyon and swept the sands of
the mesa up into eddies and swished
and swirled in around your collar nnd
cut your fnee. The sunlight was so
dazzling Unit it bewildered and seemed
unreal, and the cold winds were constantly contradicting its warmth.
"Are yon homesick, Doc'.'" I asked.
ns 1 rode uptown with bim; for he wns
there to haul people and their burgage
up to the hotel.
"Nop." he said. "It's the dry wind-
it's busted my lip so lhat I look like
I'm goin' to cry 'when I'm Iryin' lo
laugh. I'm goin' back borne this fall.'1
he added, afler a pause, "to get my
money—I'm 21 now, but I'm t-omin'
back nut here—Ibis country is all
right."
Doc. who hnd earned his title by doctoring his uncle's horses, had inherited
a little fortune of $1,800, and "hen the
summer hnd como and gone he went
back home in a Pullman car. for he had
saved $.10 out of his salary of $110 und
bonrd every month".
I-'lve years later, in' the dawning of
lln- morning; as I was climbing out of
an upper berth at another mountain
town, ii mnn caught hold of my coat
tail, and I found tluil the "mnn under
my bed" was Due Pippin, lie sniff lm
was living in Denver; so wns T, and
111 a few days he. cann* in to see me.
He came often, and lold Ibe bed stories
I had,ever heard. Tie wus llun and
pale, and I noticed that he coughed
and pounded his left lung w|ie.u he
did so. Those stories were not told to
me for publication, but 1 know be will
not cure, for he is careless now.
Doc went lo Chicago after receiving
bis money and became acquainted "ith
a well-known detective, 1 think hesaid
it was Hilly I'iul-erlon. It was like Uie
I'inke] ions to delect In tliis almost
beardless boy a remnrkubly intelligent
person.
I'ippin got an offer of employment,
he ai pled it and was sent nt once to
II small town in Illinois to find out a
baud of thieves who were stealing hogs
and robbing shops.
If Doc had tried he could never have
dressed well. Keen clothes that were
made for him didn't fit. and he wore
his hat crosswise, like the tending man
at a Pre nob funeral,   His appearance
upon Ibis occasion was iu his favor,and
hr was not long In forming the ne-
r|iinintancc of the toughest lot of loafers lu the town. They liked flue, as
everyone did who knew liim. but it was
11 long (line before they'would trust
him. Doe's money gave out,and he tried
lo borrow, nnd the gflllg gavo bim the
laugh, "(ill mil. na' turn a trick*-;

"What can 1 do? Show ine und then

"!*»ee thai jay ridln' out o' lown?"
said lhe lough, nodding down the road
where a loud horseman was going nwny
with lhe sunset at his back.
"Yes."
"Well, he's goin' out lo his place lu
the country-goes every SKt'tlliy night
nn' conies back Monday—hold 'im np."
Doe knew the man. as he knew nearly every man in the place, by lhe. description given him ut Chicago, and by
the middle of the following week this
wealthy citizen had been notified from
headquarters Mm. he would he held up
:m the next Saturday night. Doe was
at his powt, and as the loneboneiiiau
eame down the rond the highwayman
stepped ont from (lie shadows of a jack !
oak and covered his man,
That night the gang' drank up the
best part, nf the $28.f-0 and voted Doc "n,
dead gnme toucher."
When the proceed* of Doc's raid bail
been expond-ed, together with seven dollars received for Ihe "jay's" watch, the
gang determined to rnh n hardware
store,    The   lob hnd been undeitukei)

IX-c's -suggestion, was fixed upon election night. A great many fanners, he
snid, would be ia to vote and trade, ami

would Bleep soundly when once asleep,
and tbe gang voted that Doe wns a
grent thinker.
The time arrived, the store, wus ear
tered, and when they were all Ui Doc
ducked down behind tbe counter ami
rem bed the rear end of the store. Now
n big bUll's-cyo wus turned upon the
gang, whn arose from their work to look
down thn dark barrels of a half dozen
shotguns. One of the gang, seeing Doc
with the sheriff's party, made a play for
his pistol, but tbe sheriff shoved his
shotgun yet nearer the robber's face
and said, softly: "He quiet," and he was
calm.
The next tiny the fnther of one of the
gang, who was himself a hard man,
made an attempt, to kill the detective,

Young Pippin's BticeesB mi this now
celebrated case won for httn the full
confidence of lhe agency, und beforo
lie had reached Chicago other Important
work was mapped out for him, hut to
the surprise of the agency he refused to
accept nuother assignment.
"I could not bear." he said to ine, "the
thought of living a whole life thnt was
a He—to appear always to he that which
1 was not—to mix and mingle constantly witb the wicked of this world, in
which there should be so much happiness,
Returning to the west ngnin. Pippin
entered the service of I'uele Sam as a,
postal clerk.
Finding a letter in the mnil marked
to me, he wrote on the back of the envelope: "Hello—Doc.—It. M. R.!" and
I knew* then that he was in the railway
mail service,
'-"How is it," T asked one day, "thnt
yon are assistant superintendent of the
mail service in the west, when you are
under :.0, and new, comparatively new.
at lhe business?"
"Hard luck," snid Doe. smiling sndly,
coughing, and thumping his chest.
Then it wns Hint be began lo tell me
some of bis experiences iu the postal
ear, but he did not tell nil, lie was us
modest ns he was honest, mid would
not tell to me, his friend, the real tales
of heroism in which he wns himself the
hero. He told enough, however, to interest me ami cause me to find out more
from a mil t unl friend and to verify the
information by some of the records and
correspondence which I was afterword
permitted to see. I found that his
loyalty, bravery and devotion to duty
had been warmly commended iu autograph letters from the highest officials
in the mail service.
Jt was, indeed, hard luck that brought
hlm pvoiuoliou nud an easy place, which
be could not have gained save through
the kindness of higher officials. lie luul
been in any number of wrecks, for
many of the western roads were new at
that time, nnd the railroading was not
safe as II is now. Once ihere wns a
head-end collision, in which the wreck
took fire. Doe wai dreadfully bruised,
hut he hud all his limbs, and as tin*
flames crept closer and closer to bis car
lie busied himself carrying Ce until
matter to a place of safely. When his
work hnd been completed nnd the
flames lit up the canyon they showed
Doc lying upon his mail hags, apparently dead. The trainmen found him and
soon restored him to consciousness, foi
ho had only fainted from overwork and
the pain of his many wounds.
It was nenrly n year before be was
able to take his run again, nnd this time
his route lay over the Santa Fo system,
One night, when the train eame roaring* down the canyon, the engine
jumped the track, the mail car went to
pieces against the locomotive, the
coaches piled upon the pieces, and the
wreck began to burn.
When the trainmen and passengers
camo forward to look for "tbe fellows
np ahead" they saw large und small
envelopes sailing out of the burning
debris, and they knew at once that tht
mail agent must be fast in Die wreck.
The whistle valve hod been forced open.
ami now the wild, ceaseless cry ofthe
wounded engine drowned nil other
-founds, and made It Impossible for the
men to hear tbe cries of tbe Imprisoned
postal clerk. All this he knew, und
while the hungry flames were eating
their way to where he lay he pulled the
icgistcr bag to him, and began to shy
the valuable mall into the sage brush.
When the steam was exhausted and
the cry of the engine had bushed there
tame no sound from the englnemen, for
their voices were hushed in death,
Above the sonml of the crackling flames
tbey eould hear Doe calling to them
from his place below the wreck, and Ibe
train crew worked desperately right
In the very face (if the fire to rescue the
unfortunate.
llrndilillly the voice of the prisoner
grew fainter and fainter, and before
ihe rescuers reached bim It hushed entirely.
At last, just na tbey were about to
■five liim up, as he was now apparent ly
(lead, they succeeded in dragging Doc
from the wreck, and to the joy of all he
soon revived. Tie was yet nllve, hut ha*
breathed so much of tbe flames that hts
left lung was almost ruined, and he was
never able to resume his place ou the
road.
It wns this unfortunate wreck nnd
the story of his heroism that gave him '
the Important ploce.pf assistant siiper-
lhtendont of the western division of t he
United Stales mall service when he WtM
not yet Ho years old. It, was the burn
in bis breast Hint made him cough and
heat his left lung, that pinched his fnee
and made his eyes look larger than tbey
were.
Not long ago I returned to Denver,
and meeting the chief clerk in the street
asked him about Doe. I bad been wandering over the fnee of the earth for
nearly two years nnd was behind the
times, and now as iny friend looked at
me his face took on a sadder shade and
he answered slowly: "Doc died siv

Hints on the Care at Man's Noblest
Animal Friends,
A driver Bhould study aud kuow the

, with tho spirit of the home Is one of
thu very Important  thlngH.    A driver
in list also kuow how the horsu should
be fed, If he tins no one upon whom he
enn Implicitly rely to tio thu reeding.
Reviewing these'.general   UiattoN  ot
both driving and feeding, n writer en
the horse  snys that  lotuo enn drive
thirty or even forty, miles nt a good rntu
of speed and havu the nulintil In better
condition at the end than nuother after
driving the same home live miles,   ll Is
not by any means driving taut thai In-

_■   of frutting, through   the mlsiunnnge-
j   ment of tbe driver, thuu In going sev-
i    mil limes this dlstauee with   proper
-.are.   Hume men ennuot drive without
|    a whip In their hands,  whether It Is
v  needed or not, and, while there Is no
,     doubt that Iii. some, vane* the whip Is
necessary,' yet It la often the enuse of
*   more fretting tm the purt of a lively
%,   hone thnn any one thing. The driver
v   who thinks that because his horse Is
. fresh he-can stand.lt to be driven fast
- at the start for several miles, and then
given a chance to rest by going slow, or
who drives fast for a while and then
slows down to a walk In order to rest
- up for another spurt, will not get the
, best speed out of a horse with the least
waste of vitality, especially ln going
long; distances;,.. It Is a steady gait that
counts most and wears the horse least.
'Give hlm a chance to get warmed up
.first, and then let tbe gait be a steady
. ' .one. Another Item Is not to feed too
heavily before driving.   A light feed of
■' oats will be fgr better than a heavier
feed of a more bulky grain. Exercise'
or action too soon after eating retards
digestion, and.the animal that must
travel at a good gait with a loaded
stomach cannot but show the effects,
and If driven rapidly fur even a short
distance after, eating a hearty men)
there Is considerable risk of the colic.
Watering properly Is fully as Important
as feeding. When a horse Is being driven on the road he should not at auy
time be allowed td overcharge his stum-
- acb with a large quantity of water. So
far as Is possible the rule should be to
give water frequently, aud, while he
should have all he will drink, It should
bt given ln small doses. A horse In
good health can stand more- work nnd
more driving without Injury than one
that Is In any wny out of condition.
The feed and fare Bhould be shell ns are
best calculated to maintain health and
condition.'And then when on the rond
rare must be taken to use hts streugtb
and vigor to the best advantage.
Pertinent Question.
It was the first yenr that Farmer
Andrews had taken hoarders, and
though he conscientiously tried to serve
them, he found the task almost beyond
his powers. Tbey were fastidious uud
even "fussy." They seemed determined to be more than ro inform hie,
and had no hesitation lu complaining
when they were not so. ltut evidently
the Andrews farm did nol altogether
displease thom, for they not only finished the summer, but stayed on into

Then their crying grievance became,
not tbe thickness of cream or ihe stillness of butler, butthe -difficulty of

AVENGED BY
A SERPENT.
HEN 1 got George's
letter, telling me thut
ull was now ready
for our reception
uud we were to come
at once, I wub delighted. Within a
week we — mother
nnd 1—were on our
way out, and In
about three weeks'
time fouud ourselves
between the swampy
shores of the Esse-
qulbo, near lug
Georgetown, where on the quay the
dear fellow was waiting to take us up
to tho home he had made for us on his
plantation,
George Hnden and 1 had met a year
before during bis visit to the United
States, a'Bd the big, quiet, sunburned
man and I, who tell this story, had full-
en In love with one another almost at
the flrst Bight
We were to hnve been married before
he returned to Guiana, but be wus recalled suddenly by the death of his only
brother at Klo, and It wus arranged I
should follow later with mother.
You can—or, rather, you can't— Imagine how delighted I was to see 1113
sweetheart again. But 1 was startled
and a gootl deal troubled by bis appearance; he looked thin and worried. At
lirst I put It down to his grief nt Harry's death; but later, after our quiet
wedding, on the way to my future
home 1 gathered by degrees there wns
more thnn that.
His brother Harry had married n
Spaniard—a beautiful woman — who
had died nearly eighteen years before,
leaving him with one daughter, Teresa.
It wus chiefly on this girl's account
that George luul hurried back, nml he
had mentioned In writing to me that
he had brought her up from Kin to stay
with hlm lu liulamt until other arrangements could be made. Since then 1 had
heard little of her, ami almost, Indeed.
In my own happiness antl excitement
forgotten her very existence.
Now my questions elicited from
George that she wns not a pleasant*
tempered young woman, or easy 10 get
on wlih, but my worst anticipations
did not touch the reality.
We came up the river In n small
steamer, which dropped us al iny bus
band's very wharf, nnd we three walk*
wl up n slope through a wonderful tropical garden to where a long, whitewashed, green-shuttered house shone
clean and bright In the evening sun.
On the veranda stood a mil figure in
a pule yellow gown, her black hair
crowned with crimson hibiscus, A
splendidly h-iiulsoiiie woman!
Khe looked at me in a balf-dlsdalnful
way.
"So you're my new aunt." she said
casually. "And huw do yon do, Oucle
Goorge?"
Her calm assumption of superiority
was unbearable. George—big, steady,
good-tempered man ihat he wns -flush*
ed with auger.
He whispered lo me:
"Never mind, my dear. She knows no
boiler; aud It wou'l be for long.'1
But it was for longer tiinu we reckoned. She was to have been sent to
tier godmother, who lived in Madrid.
Kut lhe old lady was ill, nml begged us
to keep ttie girl n while longer,
It wns trying to n degree, nud each
dny got worse nnd worse. Teresa's
temper wns something unbearable, nnd
her general lm-k of manners only equaled b.V her sweetness when  there wns
suythlng in bi- gained by it. Still, for
my huslmnd's sake, I bore wilh her.
Toward the cud of [be cool wont hor
our ohl English overseer diet), nnd, as
a stopgap, Genige took on n young
S|Minlsh-Aniei-ienii, Iin mon Miutlue***,.
Itnmou was a smnrt-looking fellow,
but there wns something In his black
eyes which ropollcd ini». I ulwnys felt
a shrinking repulsion for the man, nnd
George didn't mueh cure for hlm. Still,
It wns necessary to have some one who
understood the sugnr, nnd men who
knew anything were so scarce you
couldn't pick nnd choose.
Teresn, who loved the cheap gayetles
of Rio, had been simply bored to death
all the winter. Ramou was a godsend
to her, and the two used to chat In
Spanish every evening over their coffee
ou the veranda.
Sometimes I blame myself for letting
them be so much together, but, to tell
the truth, (he relief of getting rid of
ber even for nn hour or two was very
great. And how could I know what a
scoundrel the man wns, or what unspeakable wickedness those two were
brewing together?
And now I must pass over the events
of the next ten months, and tell you
what happened on thnt dreadful dny
which so nearly proved fatal to all my
happiness,
Old Junn, a half-cnste Indian employe on the place, cuine up that morn-
lug wnntlng to sec my husband. They
talked for n time, nnd then I saw
George go out with a gun on his shoulder. He snw mo at the window and
called out something, but I could not
bear what be aald.
He wns a keen collector, and f supposed lt was some rare bird or betft be
wns nfter.
The dny paued, and the short, tropical twilight wns closing over the forest
when I saw Ceorge returning. He wus
followed by two negroes, who slowly
dragged some long, heavy object up the
path to the house. Tills they pulled
along, trailing In the dust, round to lhe
smith end of the house, where George's
big so-called study, really a sort of
museum, opened by two French windows 011 the lawn.
I was dressing for 8 o'clock dinner,
so did not go out. Soon I heard
George's long stride puss npsinlrs by -
my door to his dressing-room, which
Iny beyond my room at the extreme]
north end of the house,
To make vnu understand whnt ful ■
lowed 1 must partly explain how the;
bouse wns built. It wns from north 10
south, long and narrow, with a veranda
all the way round. A wide hall rnu 1
through rrom east to west, and a long
narrow one rrom north io south. The
illnloK room was the front room at 1 Ho

was ihe cottage where Marlines lived*.
He. Mni'tliioz, generally dined With ns.
ami was to have done so lhat night.
Now, so far ns 1 know, and Judging
from whal we mnde out afterward
from letters we discovered In the cottage and In Teresa's room, ihls Is what
brought about Hie tragedy that followed :
Ramon must have long before this
have made up hhls mind to marry
Teresa. Her small fortune wns an Irresistible halt to lhe indolent Southerner.
The only thing that troubled liim was
that she wns not of nge for another
three years, nnd George was her guardian nnd sole trustee. He knew well
enough what George would sny or do
If he once henrd of his pretensions.
With a man of Ramon's type—almost
conscienceless—the next Idea was simply to get George out of tiie way. Once
get rid of the uncle, and what was
there to hinder his mnking off with
Teresa and her money?
Undoubtedly ho Instilled these Ideas
Into Teresa's mind, and she. her sullen
temper already aflame nt the hint of
opposition, wns booh ripe for nny mischief. Whether this precious pair had
already concocted any definite plan I
don't know, but thnt they were only
waiting a chance whnt follows proves.
On this pnrticulnr evening Teresa
had dressed earlier nnd gone dowu. For
some reasou—I don't know what—Bhe
went to the study end opened the door.
A French window was open, and lu the
moonlight which had already succeeded the dusk Bhe caught sight of something moving through It. undulating In
rustling colls up from the grass beyond.
Terrified, she closed the door and
stood nn Instant panting with fright,
Whnt was It?
Suddenly It flashed across her. She
hnd Just before seen from her window

Chance had come. Always before dinner her uncle would go lo Ills room to
fetch the cigar he lit Immediately dinner wns over. He would go once niore—

How I enn Imnglne her stealing
quietly nway from lhe door bnck with
stealthy footsteps up the stairs to her
room nnd sitting Ihcrc watching the
clock, counting every moment till the
gong Bhould summon her uncle to his
fate behind ihat closed door.
("loser and closer crept the hands to
S o'clock, and still she sat and watched.
Suddenly 111 the hall below sounded
fooisteps ncross the polished boards,
Unnaturally loud tbey seemed as they
passed slowly down the passage beneath. There was the sound of a turning latch, an instant's pause, nnd then
-one lung, horrible sound, half shriek,
half yell, which grew shriller, then
muffled, antl then abruptly ceased.
The shriek 1 heard with almost equal
distinctness away at lhe other end of
the housS. To tills day I can sometimes
hear It, and It comes back to me tn
dreadful dreams.
1 heard my husband rush from his
room and his flying feet down the
stairway. Other sounds I henrd—cries
»f terror and alarm, hurrying footsteps
and slamming of doors. Then I summoned strength to follow. As I ran
through the hull two shots rang out In
rapid succession. A frightful pounding, like a dozen sledge hammers going
nt once, ensued; and next 1 heard a
scream of maniacal laughter, and Teresa rushed by me and out Into the night.
The next thing I remember Is
(leorge's voice, In tones of strong command:
"Keep bnck, MarianI" he celled; "It
Is no fit sight for you."
1 stood there lu the middle of the pus-
sage, while around the np-en study door
slood a little kn<*t of our black servants. Their faces were asheu with
terror, and tho whites of their eyes
goggled horribly. A thin smoke flouted
out of the room ami the keen smell of
gunpOWdor filled the air, The throbbing bent hnd nlmost ceased, and
George passed Into the room, while I
slnggci'cd hack, and, sinking Into a
chair In the hall, fainted dead away.
1 need hardly explain what had happened. The wretched Ramon hnd come
in earlier than usual to dinner; had,
contrary to bis usual custom, gone to
the study, evidently to leave the passbook for the day, and had walked
straight Into the trap set for another,
Those horrible colls hnd crushed him to
death long before even George could
reach the spot, while the great snake,
In Its terrible death agonies, had rent
tbe wretch's body In a shocking wny.
leaving tt nn unrecognizable mass.
That wns what Teresa had seen. The
shock uo doubt had crazed her. When
she ran out she went straight to the
river—at least, we suppose so, for we
never snw anything of her again. There
nre alligators In those waters.
Since then my husband and 1 have almost forgotten the tragedy. We aro
very happy alone together In our sunny
tropic home.—Chicago Times-Herald.

probably that which has Just been finished by tho Brie Cattle Company
along the Mexican border. It Is seventy-live tulles In length and separates
exactly for Its entire distant"- the two
republic* of North America. The fence
was built to keep the cattle from run
Ding across the border and fulling eiwy
>ri-y to the Mexican cow punchers. Al*
-hough It cost n.great deal of money, It
h estimated that cattle enough will be
saved In one year to more thnn pny for
it. It is a barbed wire fence, with mes*
quite and cottonwood poles, nud for the
entire length of It runs as straight as
lhe crow flies.

THE EXCELLENCE OF SYRUP OF FIGS
Is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the Camfobma Flo Syrup
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs Ib manufactured
by the Califohnia Fio Syrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other parties. The high standing of the California Fig Syrup Co. with the medical profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as It acts on tho kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weakening them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In ordcrtoget Its beneficial
effects, please remember tbe name of
the Company-—

Tin- reason of the grpat uncertainty in ihe

■ .i- mueh on the surrounding, of the

layers of warm and cold air between the
observer am! tin- lightning or by (It-* layers of the wind, -»ifi above and -lo.t be*

llie observer. Sound in its ».ni-like
progress obliquely through layers of air
of different intensities is subject to re-
fraction, nnd this refraction may occur .it
any time and place. Thus, observers at
the topmast of a sliiji lt-etjuently bear fog
whistles thnt are Inaudible at sei level:
those on bill tops hear thunder that can

of thunder, like that of dfttant cannon*

Regularity is a matter of importance
tn every woman's life. Much pain is,
however, endured in the belief that it
Is ueoesswy and not alarming, whrn
in truth it is all wrong aud indicates
derantrt-ment that may cause serious
trouble.
Excessive monthly pain itself will
Unsettle the nerves and make women
old before their time.
The foundation of woman's health Is
a perfectly normal and regular performance of natures function The
statement we print from Miss Geb-
TStrpS SlKKl, of Eidred, Pa , Is echoed
in every city, town and hamlet in this
country     Rttad what she says:
'* Dhar Mrs. P'.nkuam;— I feel like a
new person since following your ad*
vice, and thick it is my duty lo let the
public know the go-"-, your remedies
have done me. My troubles were painful men-trualion and .eueorrhcea I
wa.-. nervous and had spells of being
confused. Before using your remedies
I never had any faith in patent medicines. I now wish to say that I never
had anything do me s_ much good for
painful menstruation as Lydia L Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound; also would
say that your -Sanative Wash has cured
me of leucorrhta. 1 hope these few
words may help suffering women.'
The present Mrs ['inkham's experience in treating femaie ills Is unparalleled, for years she worked aide hy
side with Mrs Lydla B. Pinkham. and
for sometime past has had sole chargo
of the correspondence department of
her great business, treating by letter
as many as a hundred thousand ailing
women during a single year
All suffering women are Invited to
write freely to Mrs. Pinkham, at Lyua,
