A ;)M!r Find.
The drill hole that tho New York
company Is putting down on the Crow
son land six ml Ion southwest of town
is creating considerable excitement.
There is every indication of a largo
body of copper running from fl'J to over
120 foot, not solid of course, but htreak.s
that seem almost pure, At one point
tho driller, itayinond Morrison, says
there seeujs to be about twelve Inches
of pure ropper, but an opening on ono
side let the cuttings through In such
a way that they were lost. Home of
the small pieces gotten out could b,o

of the drill hole covered with a heavy
green coating, while tlie water drawn
out is a heavy green color; an old horse
shoo thrown in a pan of this water
coon appeared to be made of copper.
While tlicro have been many fine speci
mens of copper found in that part of
tlie country, a copper mine is a new
proportion. If there was Much a thing
in tlie country there would bu no
trouble in soon corning to a decision
as to the valuo of the find on this
property. Some of tho most prominent
geologists have alwuys maintained that
the formation In parts of tlie county
indicate copper, but as no mines have
been developed, there will always bo
some doubt until this ore is found In
paying quantities. This late drilling
shows about everything a parson can
ask in the iviv of copper, except an

no good purpose.

Constable lie v. Morelan was called to
the fellow's movements and after
watching him for a time. Hoy. followed
him to court house square and arrested
him in front of iloinetnan'H saloon.
The fellow was hcurehed and a 3H-cali-lire
bulldog revolver was found con
cealed rolled up beneath his outside
shirt, near his waist. This was enough
to convince the olllceru that the fellow
was a "crook" and he wau lodged in
the county jail.
Saturday tlie fellow was brought be

name as Charley Cross, but would give
