BACK FROM NOME
Dun Murpliy TclU How Thlnftn
are Run Up There.
April VMM. Dan J. Morhky of
Ibis plat' and Jack Shaw of Cula
oras county, loft Saa Francisco for
Nome, Alaska. Tin; vessel on which
they took passage was delayed three
weeks at Dutch Harbor, and they
d'ul not arrive at their destination
until June !lth. The delry was caused
by ice. which hemmed in the ship
and took it adrift. There appeared
to be. no "Teat danger and all on
board enjoyed themselves with music,
dancing and social games as besl
they could during the tedious delay.
At Dutch Harbor Mr. Murphys "met
up," as they say in the South, with
a former resident of Nome who had
l,.ft. las part am- in eharc of a house
ami lot there. He gave Messrs.
Murphy mid Shaw written permis
sion to camp on his lot until they
could make more permanent ariv.ngi:
meiils. iherefore, 0:1 lar.u'ng at
Nome, they repaired to the premises
and presented tiie written permit
1o the occupant. Judge of their
surprise to learn li.at the partner

sold the house and lot, pocketed
the money and skipped out, and since
then the property had changed
hands no fewer than five times. This
is an i;hisfrfitiiin of how matters are

who left his partner at Nome and
returned toSeattie or San Francisco
for supplies. lie sent some $-iuO
worth of goods to his partner by

and had other supplies with him
When he landed at Nome, he learned
that the .100 worth of supplies had
arrived nil right but his partner had
converted them into cash, sold the
1. 'aim and departed for no one knew
hcre. J lilt the worst feature there
is the conniving of those in authority
to oust newcomers. For instance
Murphy and Shaw and two or three
other gentlemen associated wit 11
them, took up a claim and expended
some i'-J.-ji) in development work
win. 11 th-y were ousted by parties
who claimed they have filed on the
property a month ahead of them
They knew this was false; they knew
tna! their li'mg was, as a matter of
fact, thirty days ahead of thesi
claimants, but the record was against
tlieni and they had to vacate. An
other scheme is to leave your build
ing on id: ids, and gradually move it-
working a litlie every night, .until i
occupu s-yi adjoiamg claim and then
swear you built it on that claim and
oust your unsuspecting neighbor.

there, as elsewhere, gobbles'up the

many other goud ones, by Lane, who
has built a narrow gauge i-uih-oad,
four miles in length; across the afore
said Tundra, to his mine. The foot
hills begin at the Discovery claim,
and, resemble very much the hills
encountered as one leaves the Liver

been, and is being, found iu various
parts of the foot-hill region, aud the
farther from the sea one yets the

ledges are being prospected for iu

note has been found. Mr. . Murphy
witnessed the destructive -dorm tliat

but the water did him no damage,
as his habitation was well back from

Plaster of paris
Found In Large Quantities Neoi
Albuquerque, New Mexico.-
T. H. McClure has returned to
Sonora a'"ter a three months absence
in New Mexico. He has secured the
biggest and purest deposit Of sul
phate of lime, commonly known as
plaster of Paris, ever discovered and
will form a company to exploit his
The mine is situated about one
hundred miles southwest from
Albuquerque, and is virtually a
mountain of almost chemically pure
plaster of Paris. Mr. McClure has
samples of the mineral in the sh.ipe
if plaques and medallions made
direct from the rock without any
process of purification and also a
quantity of the rock itself as it comes
out. ,. .
Several assays of tho rock, were
made by one of the best mineralogists
of the United States. He informs
Mr. McClure that chemically pure
plaster of Paris consists of water
20.00 water, gypsum 32.1)0 and
sulphuric acid it!. 50. lie then" gives
the as.-ay of the specimens', which
were averasre, as follows: Water
21.40; gypsum :i2.8( and sulphuric
acid 45.41. This assay shows that
the percentage of water and gyp
sum is n little higher, while that of
the acid is a little lower, than the
formula, and that there is but 32-100
of 0110 per cent impurities iu the
This is a remarkable showing in
view of the fact that a furnace and
pulverizing mill can be purchased
and installed 'for a few thousand
dollars which will turn out nearly
forty tons of pure, merchantable
material, worth at the works of
least 18 to $i!2 per ton, in 24 hours.
Mr. McClure is now perfecting
plans to form a company to work
tho property. It promises to become

Rural Education Suggested.
The British board of education,
recognizing that the vast majority
of the boys and girls brought up in
the rural districts will be farmers.
etc., have sent out a circular recom
mending that such children be edu
cated iu the common things which
surround tliem. Practical agricul
ture is not to be taught, but the
idea is that the children should be
trained to recognize plants and
insects useful or .injurious to the
farmer, and to handle the simpler
tools ufed in garden and farm work-
in the cultivation of a school garden
There should be given, says the
circular, "lessons on the spot about
animals iu the fields and farm yards
about ploughing and sowing, about
fruit trees and forest trues, 'about
birds, insects and flowers, and other
objects of interest." School Xcur
sions under the guidance of teacher

recommended for the purpose of
awakening and quietening the ob
serving faculties. ''This sort
teaching will, it is hoped, directly
tend to foster in the children
genuine . love for the country and
the country pursuits."
