The American people were not the
first, or are they the only ones who
give yearly thanks to God for the
blessings they receive. The Mokis no
doubt gave thanks and had their
Thauksgiviug prayers aud ceremonies,
loug before Columbus started on his
voyage of discovery. Only those vil
lages that were through gathering
their harvest, were having their
thanksgiving ceremonies and prayers.
Major Powell aud 1 would take turn
about in sitting up at night aud
watching them, aud would exchange
notes. We were the only ones of the
party wbo went into the kivas. Those
who enter the kiva, during any of
their ceremonies, are naked with the
exception of their breech clout, al
though they allowed the major aud
myself to go down, with our clothes
on. They no doubt thought they
were doing us a great favor. We were
always seated in the left hand corner,
nearest to the ladder.
One night I was a little late. They
were waiting for me to come before
beginning their ceremonies as there
is no going out or coming in after it
is once beguu. This night there were
four married women sitting on the
same side where I sat. Tbis was the
first and only time that I saw women
in the kiva. They too were stripped
like the men.with nothing but a cloth
around their loins. On the floor in
the center of the room was a small
fire. Squtted around this flre was the
head man of the village and his coun
selors. In front of the bead man was
a bowl of water, holding about half a
gallon. Beside this lay a pipe, an ear
of corn, some flints, aud images of
birds, sheep, deer, etc. All of them
were on the end of little stricks or
handles, about eight inches in length.

thanked the Great Spirit tor having
sent plenty of rain, during the past
summer, so that thev raised a large
crop, aud his people, which he knew
were good, would have plenty to eat.
The thanks to the Great Spirit aud
other parts was repeated several times.
This prayer akue lasted fully an
hour. After this he took the pipe
and lit it and drew a few puffs of
smoke, then he passed it to the one
sitting on his left, who also drew a
few puffs of smoke, ami passed it to
the next until it again reached the
head man, when it was passed to nie.
After a few draws at the pipe, 1
ed it back, alien the head man tilled
his mouth as III of smoke as -could
uold,then leaned over the bowl of wa
ter until his lips almost touched it.
He then opened his mouth and let
the smoke escape. The smoke hung
over the water for a second or two.
then slowly rose in a wavy motion
like a cloud. When near the rim of
the bowl, he prayed that the Great
Spirit should let the cloud rise like
he sees the smoke rise from this bowl
of water. Then he took some white
sand and let it fall into the wattr,
aud again prayed for the (ireat Spirit
to let the snows fall this winter as he
sees the white sand fall in the
Then he took black sand and
picked up several items that would in
dicate a good deal of life and activity
iu that section. On the Iron Queen
he is now sinking a winze from the
three hundred foot level, aud has
reached a depth of fifty feet, or three
hundred aad fifty feet from the sur
face. On the fifty foot level he is
driving drifts bolh north and south,
all in ore, and advanced some twenty
feet each way.
On the old Boggs mine be has just
succeeded in drainiug out the water
down to and from the two hundred
foot level, and will now explore the
level, and then proceed to .-ink ;i 'shaft
or winze to the three hnudred level,
which must also be drained. It must
be understood that the original shaft
which penetrate these workings had
caved in years ago, and is not safe to
in addition, the old Hackberry
mine which now belongs to the Tread
well company, has been drainage of
water to the three hundred foot level,
and he is now sinking, being several
feet below the level at present, with
good ore iu the new work. He expects
soon to cross cut.
Nine miles of ditching for the pipe
line from Wolf canyon has been com
pleted, aud pipe has been laid for six
miles. The water is now coming over
the lofty summit of Reservoir Hill,
where the supply reservoir will be
constructed, from which the water,
with its tremendous fall of 1000 feet
to the smelter at Mayer, will furnish
even more power than he will need,
for the present at le;.-t.
The oil burning ,-melter, which it
will be remembered, was burned out
last November, is lieiug re-lined, and
will be ready to work next week.

mercial Mining company, and has
fixed up the narrow guage railroad
from the Hackberry mine to the smel

the track from the smelter to the Iron
Queen and the Boggs.
In all, be has some fifty men at
work: and when we consider that this
is only the work on band of one oper
ator, aud that there are a score in the
district, it is evident that there is
"something doing down tiar. "

A. A. Johns came iu from the Hen
rietta mine last night and reports
things looking better at the mine all
the time. Within the past week
the drift at the 400 foot level has open
ed up three feet of high grade ship-
ning ore running between ?80 and
-d'lO to the ton. This is the same ore
rein from which the high grade ship
ping ore has been stoped at the 300
foot level, and the character of ore
is practically the samo only the vein
is several inches wider and the values
a little better, simply carrying out
the rule of this property that the ore
body grows larger aud richer as depth
is attained. Superintendent Paul A.
Johns is not expected hack from Chi

Roliert Bamlier came iu today from

ore from a prospect which he is just

than 50 feet. The ore is not in a
solid vein as yet but is coming into
the shaft lietter every foot the shaft is
sunk, and he hopes to encounter a
solid vein very soon, in which event
he will have a mighty rich prospect.

About two hundred men are now
employed in ofiening up the famous

have worked magnificently. They are
now throwing out about 1,800,000 gal
lons of water a day, and, for a time,
following the repair of the broken ma
chinery, the discbarge ran up to
something over '2,000,000 gallons in

that the 2,000,000 gallon mark will
be about the ordinary work of the
pumps hereafter. The shaft has passed
the TOO foot level and is now down
about 105 feet below the original wa
ter level. It is to be sunk to the depth
of at least 1000 feet before the more
extensive mining operations will be
begun. The largest pump is on the
000 foot level.
Four sinking pumps are used to
throw the water fiom the bottom of'
the shaft to the 600 foot level, where j
it is all handled by the big pump. On '
each 200 foot level station below the j
000 foot level a pump has to be in

down, water accumulates at the rate j

to work along as fast as he can an I
