Investigating the Mineral Wealth of
Under an agreement recently made
between the United States geological
survey and IJ. II. Henry, Mississippi
conamfsibner for the Louisiana Pur
chase exposition, investigations of the
economic geology of that state are
now being carried on by United
State? geologists. It is known that
large and valuable clay deposits and
extensive beds of Portland cement
materials occur in Mississippi, but un
til recently no attempt has been made
to pnMMire such detailed information
regarding the quality and quantity of
these materials as is necessary be
fore the deposits can be developed.
The present cooperative investigation
will remedy this defect and cause
these valuable mineral " resources to
be brought to the notice of investors.
Attention will lso be paid to the de
velopment of the minor mineral re
sources of Mississippi, among which
may be included glass sand, molding
sands, lignite, red and yellow ochres,
and. fuller's earth, all of which are
known to occur in commercial quan
tities. Metallic ores are not found in de
posits of sufficient size or quality for
mining anywhere in the state, and
coal is also lacking;, but the active de
velopment of the cement, clay, and
other resources named above would
add greatly to the wealth of the com
munity. The need for such an exam
ination and report on the mineral
wealth-of the state has long been ap
preciated by its citizens, but the
preparation of an exhibit for the St.
Louis exposition lias rendered it ab
solutely imperative that a prelimi

DAILY SHORT STORY
Copyright. 1903. by C. B. Lewis.
There had been no less than three
mysterious robberies at Baker's bank
within six months. They were myste
rious because keys had been used to
open the doors of the building, and the
combinations on vault and safe had
been worked instead of forced. No
watchman was kept at the bank, nor
would Baker employ one.
Of course he raised a great row over
the robberies, the aggregate sum being
about $0,000, but at the same time he
could not say that he really suspected
any of his employees. At any rate he
accused no one, and the sheriff and a
detective worked for weeks and got
no clew. Naturally enough the robber
ies were the talk of the town, and as a
boy of fourteen I was much excited
It was in the winter time, that the
last robbery took place, and one night
n crowd of us boys and girls drove out
into the country to a spelling school.
By accident I was left behind when
the party started home, and there was
no other way thau to foot it back.
It was 2 o'clock of a still, cold morn
ing when I passed up the street on
which Baker's bank was situated, and
just before I reached the building
saw a woman emerge and lock the
door behind her. As I caught sight of
her I dodged behind a pile of boxes
at hand, and. peering out, I saw her
look up and down the street for a mo
ment before moving on. When she
started away, I followed her, and great
was my surprise to see her halt at
Baker's house, four blocks away.'
It was not until I reached home and
pondered over the caj a little that I
made tip my mind the muffled female
figure must be Mrs. , Baker herself.
When ouoe this idea had come to me
I besran to work on it.- Early next
morning I was out to look for tracks
in the snow, and I very soon found
those of the midnight woman. They
had been made by small and shapely
But had there been still another rob
ber' at the bank? I ran away from
school to hang around the corners and
wait for news, aud before noou it was
known that another $2,000 package
had been taken. The circumstances
were precisely the same. Some one
had entered the bank and worked the
combination of the vault.
This last robbery started a run on
the bank. There was no cause for the
flurry, as Baker could pay $2 for $1,
but that and the mysterious robberies
nearly drove him crazy. I had a good
mind to go and tell him what I had
seen, but, boylike. I was afraid to do
It. 1 did go to the sheriff, however, and
begin my story, but ho laughed in my
face and said:
"Boy, you have been seeing ghosts
and having the nightmare. ,If you gc
round talking this way to others
they'll call you crazy."
He hadn't done anything himself to
clear up the mysteries, and he was,
perhaps, a little fearful that I might
strike a clew. I looked at It that way
and was not discouraged by what he
said. I had no father to go to and did
not think mother could help in the
What I accomplished in the next two
days was this: I got from the bank
er's sou Joe the information that he
had been awake when his mother came
in after her raid, and while she was
out for a couple of hours and he and
I were left alone in the house I made
a swift search and found every dollar
of the missing money in a hatbox in
the garret. In the same box were writ
ten instructions as to how to work the
combinations. I did not remove any
thing, nor could the woman have sus
pected on her return that I had dis
covered anything. There was no doubt
of her being the robber. She had se
cured the combination from her bus
band in confidence, and she had had
the nerve to get up in the night and
rob the bank. If she had not used any
of the money she must have some ob
ject in view, but I could not study
that out. though there was gossip
about family troubles. I was more
scared than before at the thought of
going to the banker direct, as I some
how felt that he would blame me in
6ome way, but I sent another boy to
him and had him call at my house In
The banker seemed to have made up
his mind to hear bad news. I shall
never forget how he sat there before
me looking straight into my eyes and
his face, growing old and haggard as I
told my story. Half an hour wrought
such facial changes that he seemed
almost a stranger. His very soul must
have been tortured, but he spoke no
word till I had finished. Then he quiet
ly asked me to verify certain points,
seeming to have a hope that I might.
after all, be mistaken, but there was
no blunder, and he rose up and left the
house looking ten years older than
when he entered it.
The stricken man did not go to the
bank or his home, but walked out into
the country with his head down and
his hands crossed behind, him. I fol
lowed him for two miles and then re
turned. It was daylight next morning
when he entered his house and then It
was to find his wife gone. She had left
before night in a strange outfit driven
up to the door by a strange man, but
before departing she had visited the
bank for the fifth time. This time she
took a package of $10,000 and was seen
and not Interfered with by half a doz
en different persons.
The ill used husband opened the bank
for one day and then closed it forever,
although all depositors were paid In
full while jje lay dying. If ever a man
died of a broken heart Charles Baker
did. He knew It was his wife who had
robbed him, but he made no effort to
hare her OTerbanled. M. QUAD.
