A placer discovery was made on Mo

morning 30 claims had been staked.
The panning on the creek revealed de
posits of gold, oopper and molybdenum.
Mclntyre creek drains some of the
best copper properties in the White
horse district, and Mr. Foster was lead
to prospect it because of the evidence
of erosion on the hills which contain
the copper and gold quart/, properties.
He believed that these hills had been
washed down and the heavy precious
metals deposited as placer in the val

conclusion to such an extent that there

"We fellows," said a reporter sitting
with a number of his companions about
a store at midnight, "bare It In our
power to do lota of good or lots of
harm." -
"What d'you mean?" asked one .of
Ihe party.
"Oh, there are millions of ways.
What I hare in my mind Just now Is
suddenly thrusting some oue Into
prominence. When 1 was looking
after the social lions I made u deal
with an Impoverished swell to give me
spicy bits about them. He bad the en
tree, and I hadn't Well, one day he
told me that Lord Martingale, a fresh
Importation from Loudon, had said
that a certain Mrs. Blngletter he had
seen in Central park beat anything for
beauty they had In England. 'Here's
a go," I suld to my Informer. 'I know
Mrs. ltiiigletter. I'll Just run that
Item In the social tidbits next Sunday,
and she'll be tickled to death.'
"Sure enough, the next Sunday
moruiug I cooked up a beautiful an
nouncement of the fact that we had a
prettier woman in New York than
they had in London and no less a
critic than Lord Martingale had said
so. A few days later 1 met Guy King
letter, and he told me his wife had
suddenly stumbled on to the item and
It had pleased ber Immensely.
"That's all I thought about the mat
ter. You know we fellows cau't keep
our minds on one subject very long.
One evening I dropped Into the Metro
politau Opera House to Jot down who
was there, when 1 heard two swells
talking beside me. One of them spoke
with a decidedly English accent
" 'Can you tell me who that woman
is in the tirst box from the stage in the
second tier?" he was saying.
" That's young Mrs. Mlckelton, re
cently married. Why do you ask?'
"'Because she Is the most beautiful
woman I ever saw. We've nothing
like her In London.'
" 'You don't mean it.'
"Well, I sklmuied around and found
out who the fellows were and learned
that onff of them was Lord Martingale.
Now. you may suppose that I remem
bered what he'd said about my friend,
Mrs. Kiuglett"r, but I had clean forgot
ten it Back I went to the office and
wrote out that E-ord Martingale had
remarked at the opera that young Mrs.
Mlckelton was the most beautiful worn
au In New York and there was nothing
like her In Loudon.
"About a week after that E was stroll
ing along upper Broadway. E had Just
lighted a cigar and was feeling very
comfortable. Truth Is E had $10 In my
pocket, something that hadn't occurred
before since I entered Journalism, and
1 was wishing some one would come
along that 1 could 'blow off.' I felt a
touch on my arm and, turning, saw a
seedy individual looking out of a pair
of the most melancholy eyes E ever
saw. E was about to give him a nickel
when E stood stock still with astonish
" 'Guy Etingletter, can this bo you?'
"'Yes,' he said mournfully.
" 'What's the matter?'
" Tve been ruined.'
" 'Come In here and tell me about It.'
"E led him Into a cafe. We sat dowu
at oca cf Use table*, and I called for a
lunch aud sometning wiio wnicn
wash It down. 'Now,' I said, 'lot's
bear It.'
"'Do you remember nearly a j ir
ago an Item you put in your pai?*r
stating that Lord Martingale hud wild
that my wife was the moat beout'i'ul
woman In New York T
"Slowly the matter got back into my
" 'Yes,' I said. 'I think I remember
something like that.'
" 'Well, when you published that Item
I was fairly prosperous. I was doing
a good business aud making money.
But from the appearance of your state
ment I saw a change In Lucy. One
day she told me that now we were do
ing so well we ought to go out more
and I soon learned that she meant wo

what I could to dissuade her, but it
wa? no use. The queen of society bee
hud got Into her bonnet; Lord Martin
gale had said that she was the most
beautiful woman In New York and by
the spending of some money she could
easily enter the elect set and with such
a recommendation at once become a
" The most fashionable dressmakei
was hired for her clothes, and the prin

gems. We gave two entertainments antf

young men of fashion who live by their
wits ami were ghul to get "full" on my
champagne. Several women who
claimed to be in the smart set were at
3U- soirees, but we found out after
ward that they were impostors.
" 'Meanwhile the bills began to come

Wife up as a professional beauty was
terrible expense. You see, I couldn't
attend to my business and keep track
of the expenses at hotne. I left every
thing of that nature to Lucy, who wa?

One day I found my business and ev
erything closed out. To cap the climax
the other day I took up your paper and
read that I/ird Martindale had said
that the most beautiful woman in New
York was a Mrs. Somebody Else.' "
