Eeturning Mining Man Says
No Band of Bebels In
vaded District.
According; to Gapt John A. "Winram
who has just r-turned rrom a three
weeks' visit to the Apache mining dis
trict in the Black range in New
Mexico, there is more life all over that
district than he has seen for 25 years.
lie was one of the original pioneers in
that country, having gone in. there
about 30 years ego when the Apaches
were bad, and was there during the
boom days in the early 'SO's. when sil
ver was at a high mark and millions
were being taken from the mines.
The Silver Monument and United
States Treasury mines are the leaders
of the new boom.
"A long string of mule teams is rais
ing the dust in the long road from
Fairview by way of Elephant Butte to
Kngle station. I had a hard time to
get any men to heip me do my annual
assessment work on my property, be
cause every one who will work Is
quickly employed by those two com-
foon when tui: mill of tile United J
States Treasury starts there will be '
more men needed. Of course, there is
an unusual amount of work going on
an how, as e ery one is doing his as
sessment, and the hills are filled with
miners at work.
"The long lajBO foot tunnel of the
Silver Monument has completely re
futed the old canard of some would be
experts that the mineral of the Black
range was rich on the surface, but did
net go down. This tunnel and other
-i. orkings show the very richest ores at
the 300 foot level below the surface,"
continued Capt. Winram. "Indeed they
are taklf out ore in these lower
.epths that i3 so rich that the quartz
is literal! v hung together with wires
of pure silver. .

rich ore, my values being silver, gold
.ind copper. In fact, the deeper I go
down, the bigger and riclier my ore
becomes. It is about eight miles nortrf
of the two big mines I have mentioned,
.in d is in Dry creek camp. All that
that district needs is the railroad. It
is said that the Santa Fe company has
made a survey from Elephant Butte to
Palomas recently. Col. George H. Hole
prate is -at the Pelican mines where
they are taking out very high grade
ores.
No Rebel Band There.
"Kvery one wonders how that rumor
got started that was telegraphed about
a band of Mexican rebels being in the
Black range and threatening to raid
the towns. Why. I -was at a dance
Thanksgiving in the very town, Fair
iew, where it -was said .they intended
to invade, and -we never heard any
thing about it. If such a thing should
be attempted, there would be 500 men
:n the saddle, fully armed, in ten
hours, and they -would simply eat
those revolutionists up. For. the coun
try is filled with cow boys and old
frontiersmen who know every foot of
that countrv and they would make
short work of any Mexicans from Old 1
.Mexico.

..OLD GOLD. CHIP
Pinos Altos District, Near
Silver City, Becoming Fa
mous as Zinc Producer.
(By L. H. Davis.)
The old gold camp of Pinos Altos,
near Silver City. N. M is becoming one
of the most important producers of
zinc ores in the southwest. Maj. Isaac
Avina, of El Paso, has just returned
from there. He is interested In mining
and reports increased activity in the
district. He said of the camp:
"John F. Oglesby and I own the old
Langston mine, which is about five
miles northeast of Silver City, consist
ing of two claims on the main vein of
the camp of Pinos Altos and are ac
tively working it. Our vein runs in a
northerly and southerly direction, an&
adjoining us on the north and on the
same lode are the Tacific No. 1 and
From a series of elaborate chemical tests.
Comparative digestibility of food
made with different baking powders:
An equal quantity of bread (biscuit)
was made with each of three differ
ent kinds of baking powder cream
of tartar, phosphate, and alum and
submitted separately to the action
of the digestive fluid, each for the
same length of time.
The percentage of the food digested
is shown as follows:
Bread made with Royal
Cream of Tartar Powder:
No. 2 mines, or what used to be called
the Gillette and. Hearst workings.
"We have, sunk a shaft 100 feet deep
and from the bottom of it have drifted
southward on the vein 400 feet and to
the north we have drifted 200 feet,
also on the vein. This shaft is sunk
in the gulch which crosses the prop
erty. The shaft and levels show a vein
five feet wide between walls, and cuts
through a diorite porphyry country
rock. Our pay streak or solid mineral
is from one to three feet wide, of zinc
lead ore, carrying some silver and
gold. There occur shoots of pyrites or
iron copper sulphides, carrying from
$7 to $S gold per ton. The ore occur
rence is somewhat peculiar in that the
two classes of ore occur alternately, so
that we have a zone of lead zinc ore
for eight or 10 feet, succeeded by a
zone of gold bearing pyrites the next
eight or 10 feet, and so on, and these
alternate streaks or shoots are con
tinuous all along the levels.
"We are mining and shipping our
zinc ore to Bartlettsville, Mo. When
hand sorted it runs 45 percent per ton.
The ore is zinc blende and largely
rosin zinc.
Pacific So. 1 Worked.
"Adjoining us on the north Is the
Pacific No. 1, or old Gillette mine,
which Is owned by the Savannah Cop
per company, and was once a great
gold producer. . It is also being worked,
now by Bell and Wright under a lease
and is shipping three car loads of ore
daily to the El Paso smeltor. The ore
shipped is pyritiferous, carrying cop
per, iron, gold and silver, and averages
about $36 per ton. The Pacific mines
produced nearly one and a half mil
lion dollars, mostly in gold, and are
developed by two shafts, one of which
is called the Gillette and the other
the Hearst, to a depth of 700 feet,
which are Intersected by tunnels and
drifts. This is on the same mother
lode or vein with our mine. These
cnlnttirla Aroo r, tmftA AaTft&nA ft t
the copper furnaces at EI Paso, on ac- j
get a low rate of freight. It being only
?1 per ton.
"Another big property near us and
carrying similar zinc lead ores Is -what
is called the Cleveland group, owned
by George H. TJtter, of Silver City. For
years Mr. Utter has been working on
his properties under considerable dif
ficulties. At last he has succeeded in
making the property pay. He has a
concentrator and separator which
make his product very valuable and he
is shipping quantities of it to the east
ern zinc smelters.
On our mother lode are
granitic structure, yet with the blotlte
replaced by nests of. limonite, carry
ing gold.
Outcrops of compact, white quartz
are always barren, or nearly so, of gold
value, and in the workings below the
similar compact quartzose parts of the
ore bearing rocks are generally of the
lowest grades.
Placer gold is found in the arroyas.
That search for it which carries the
prospecto r to the quartz out crops
leads him to disappointment. The ore
bearing material is hardly recogniz
able at the surface, and indeed, shows
seldom as an outcrop, the weathered
surface being sandy or shaly; and, as
is the case in many mining districts,
the apex of the ore bearing material
often rests a few feet below the sur
face, where only the line of the frac
ture is to be recognized.
"No well founded prediction of the
extent of an ore body can be made at
the place, for its thickness at any point
and Its extension In any direction are
quantities varying in correspondence
with the ramifications In bulk, exten
sion and direction of the dikes and
sills of the diabase. Also the variation
of the value Is such that two adjacent
foot 'wide samples are almost sure to
vary considerably. .
"The principal development work
ings in the camp are on the Favorite
mine, which show a continuity of ore
bearing material to the lowest depth
attained, and the pay streak at one
place three to four feet wide. In the
108 foot level the ore body ran one and
one half, and two and two tenths
ounces gold per ton. Surface outcrops
on adjoining claims showed gold, one
carrying as high as eight tenths of an
ounce of gold per ton."
The fact that rich float has been
found from time to time argues
strongly that the locality is a favor
able one for a prospecting proposition,
leading with strong expectations to a
development and then to a mining
proposition.

"The Mountain Key has been worked
more or less continuously since the
early days of the district and has pro
duced two thirds of a million dollars.
Placer gold was discovered in 1860. not
far from the present location of the
Mountain Key mine by a man named
Birch, a pioneer in the California gold
fields, and the camp was called Birch
villa and grew very rapidly. In "the
same- year. the first lode was discov
ered and It is still worked as the Pa
cific mine. Within two years from the
discovery of the gold it is said that 30
claims were located and were being
worked by 300 men. When the civil
war broke out the camp became nearly
deserted on account thereof, and soon
was continuously raided by Apaches.
The present name of the district was
given to It by the Mexicans, Pinos Al
tos or tall pines. After the war, ope
rations were resumed. The chief
operators were Bell and Stevens. In
1867 the first mill was built consist
ing of 15 stamps. In 1883 there was
erected the first mechanical concen

1 Paso Engineer Thinks Locality
Favorable for Prospecting and
Mining Proposition.
Led by the reports of the rich gold
discoveries recently made in the Little
Rincon mountains of Arizona, F. C.
Pearson, the well known assayer and
mining engineer, of El Paso, has made
a preliminary Inspection of that dis
trict. Mr. Pearson says: "It is four hours'
drive northward from Benson, Ariz.,
to the Massoletti, gold 'camp in the
Little Rincon mountains. In that vi
cinity the country rock is a metamor
phlc granite fractured by a system
having nearly an. east-west trend.
Along the lines of fracture the granite
is altered chiefly by a decomposition
and leaching of the blotlte and to more
or less extent tne ortnociase; and the
resulting granite rock; appears from a
distance like white dikes coursing the
granite and striking northwest-southeast.
A second and later system of
faults and fractures has a northwest
and southeast trend, with intrusion of
diabase, which is usuallv schistose to
shaley on and near the contact.
"Then there is a third system having
a more distinctly vein-like character
with ferriferous quartz gangue, carry
ing copper oxide3 and gold with a lit
tle silver. The schistose and gneissic
contacts of the diabase and granite are
more or less altered and charged with
hydrated Iron oxide and some oxide of
manganese; the rocks on both sides of
the contact being mineralized for
varying and ill defined distances, with
much of the granite retaining its
Find Rich Silver Ore.
The White Metal company, consist
ing of William Fiske. Henry Snell and
other well known mining men of this
district, has exposed some unusually
rich silver ore in the Apache moun
tains, some of the ore carrying 400 to
500 ounces of the white metal.
The ore recently encountered in the
Superior and Boston continues as the
drifting and other exploration work
along the vein progresses. The east
drift of the eighth level continues In
the ore and the raise started from the
point on that level where the ore first
was encountered, has been lifted 20
feet towards the sixth level and is
wholly In ore. As there are nearly
4000 feet of unexplored ground in the
eastward direction in which the eighth
level drift Is following the ore, the
prospects for the greater development
of mineral values of a good grade seem
unusually good.
Summit Shipments.
General manager Henderson expects
to take out six carloads of about 16
percent copper ore from the Summit
this month as against seven carloads
for November. The leasers also will
ship two carloads of ore an thfv rllrl
last month. There are two parties of
leasers extracting ore at the Gibson
on party on the Pasquale vein, and the
other on the Summit vein. The ore
now being taken from the property by
the company is on the fourth level, but
as soon as a shute has been finished
to the sixth level the ore from the
fourth level will be dropped through
to the sixth and the Intervening
ground between those two levels will
be worked from the fourth to the
bottom.
t He Is Going To Do, But
hat He Has Done For Others
Dr. Milam, the recognized leading specialist of Texas,
has given from time to time references from various
banks and business concerns of tlie state, believing that
if you were a sufferer you would investigate his stand
ing in the business world. He herewith gives state
ments from cured people who will be glad to answer any
question you may ask. If you write these patients you
you will exercise the regular form of courtesy in enclosing a self addressed
envelope.
Mr. Jerry Nichols, of Virginia Ave, says: I wnt to see my family physician about a very bad throat
trouble. He said go see a specialist. Having heard of the great work Dr Milam was doing, I went to him.
After an examination he told me what the trouble was and proceeded to eure it. I took the treatment two
weeks and am as well as I ever was. I had not ben able to speak above a whisper for "Some time and was
very much uneasy about myself, thinking possibly I had a .tubercular throat. I know no man on earth
wuld have cured my trouble in any shorter time and it cost me practically nothing.
Mrs. W. L. Little says: I went to Dr. Milam suffering with nervous and womb t-ouble. lake most
people, I had little confidence in doctors, after having been treated from time to time without results.
After a thorough examination Dr. Milam told me what my trouble was, and after talking with my husband
I decided to begin treatment and I am glad to say that he is giving the results promised. I know he is, be
cause I feel better than 1 have since before I had an accident many months ago. I am satisfied that I will get
all that was promised me. ......
Mrs. Hurt, one of the best known women of another eity in Tex, because her nusbaad is in a promi
nent wholesale business, says: I had rheumatism So bad that I eouH not get to Dr. Milam's offke. My hus
band carried specimens for" examination as well as made statements, and after a week's treatment I was
able to go to his office, and in a short while was cured. I would herald the work he does to all poor
suffering women.
Mr. W- L- Laid, of Kilgore, Tex., says: T had a stricture of the bowel, but did not know it until after I
had spent more than a thousand dollars trying to get well. When I went to Dr. Milam- he examined me,
and by the way he is the first man who did try to find the cause of my condition. He told me what was
necessary and I am glad to state that I have steadily gained until I am no more my old self after suffering
for years. I weigh 50 pounds more now than I did and feel as well as any man.
A prominent Contractor here, who is known to most of the Builders World, says: "When I went to Dr.
Milam a few days since I did it to see if he was a fake or man of ability, and when he was through with
me I knew he recognized what he was up against. I have been to several, but he is the only man who con
vinced me that he had had any experience in the class of work he does, or knew how to begin. I am glad
to say today that I am getting results and you will find him a man easy to approach and better to get
along with.
Mr. W. K. Byrow, banker and merchant of Whitney, Tex, says: Dr. Milam treated my wife several
rears since with remarkable results. Our local physician had stated he eouH do nothing more, and we were
directed to him through a friend and have been thankful for such results in so short a time. Since she was
cured we sent two of our daughters to him for treatment and the same success has prevailed in eaefa ease.
We believe him to be all that any specialist can be.
These statements are given to show the great work Dr. Milam has and is to
day doing right here in El Paso.
He returned, here a few weeks since, after having been in a North tfexas city
since leaving here, and offers a
Free Treatment For a Few Days . .
jet to get advertised and to prove to the public at large that he does what he
claims.
Dr. Milam will not beg an individual to present themselves now for treat
ment, because he knows that enough will come without any special effort,
AKD OTHERS WHO "WAIT TO SEE will be glad to go to his office and pay
him hundreds of dollars for a cure that could be had for nothing at present.
He knows that they will not come now and will come later. Those who pre
sent themselves now will have every courtesy that those who come later will
get without the fee that will be charged.
Dr. Milam is not a humbug or a drifter. ,
He Has Located Here For Business And He
Going To Have It
THAT'S AIL, except to state that he treats chronic and private diseases of
men, women and children. He has everything necessary to do his work. You
need not wait for names of disease, because a name with a false diagnosis
amounts to- nothing. You know if you are nervous, diseased, have catarrh
or feel that something is wrong and you do not know just what it is. Then
come and find out. It will cost you little or nothing and you will never re
gret the day you came.
This free proposition will not last but a few more days.
