Ilow to secure the gihll is the problem now confronting minilng en gineers, Five rich gl l-bearing creeks drain Mayo lake. For centuries they have been sweep. ing their golden deposits into the lake. The shores of the lake were prospected this simmner and were foulnd to contain gold in paying quantities, but all attempts to sound bottom have been failures. The lake seems to be in a great crater of such depth as to make gravity drainage impos sible. It is much deeper than Stewart river and its waters should not be carried off in that great natural artery. The lake is 20 miles long and about two miles wide. Soundings at the mouth of Ledge creek faile'l to find bottom after reaching a depth of yso feet. The Ottawa government will be ssked to investigate. Stewart river miners believe the lake's bottoim would produce more gold than the entire Klondike--T'coma Cor. New York World.

ABANDONED SHIPS ALWAYS MENACE FOUR COLLISIONS WITH DERELICTS IN THE ATLANTIC REPORTED SINCE JANUARY 1.

ADVENTURE WITH BAD MEN True Tale of How Burton Was Nearly Frightened Out of His Wits by a Gang of Practical Jokers. "Speaking of practical jokes," said a well known man about town, "reminds me of sme played on an Englishman I nmet in Aspen, Colo., who was on his first trip West. lie confided to me that he desired to see some of the true Western life. "I. in turn, confided the fact to a number of the boys in town and it was arranged to accommodate him. We will call the victim Jones. "After dinner at the hotel I took Jones for a stroll and as per arrangement wound up at a dance hall. It was here that the ftn began. We had been there a few minutes when two tough-looking chaps started a row and Whipped out their six slhooters and began firing with blank car tridges. At about the second shot Jones bolted through the door, and it took half anll hour to find him. It Took His Breath Away. "\Ve then had a few drinks and our friend became somewhat wolbbly In Ihis speech and legs. We finally persuaded him to lie down on a couch in one of the lupstairs rooms. "\While he was in the room one of the had minl, 5 ho cleaned )out the dance hall, went to a butcher shop and securing a huge cleaver, took a piece of liver and smeared blood over the blade and on the handlle, then rolling up his sleeves he smeared blood upI his arms and on his face. \\'hle he appeared in the hallway leading to the room in which Jones was lying on a couch, he, presented a frightful appear ance. "\Ve had disarmed Jones and removed everything with which lie could do harmn, and left him to his fate. "The man with the ax walked up to the door and giving it a couple of hard raps with the ax. demanded admittance. This was suflicient to arouse our victdim from his stupor. but before he could get up the cxe cutioner was upl)on himtl. A Charming Salutation. "in a voice that could be heard by the gang on the stairs the iman with the ax called out: 'I killed that other coyote, and now I amn going to get you.' "The Rang tiptoed to the door in the dark hall and peered in. The sight which Ict our eyes would have made a stone man lauglh Jones had slipped off the couch and was crawling backward to ward the window. The expression on his face beggars description. His mouth was open and you could have thrown a lariat over his eyes. lie was frightened so badly that he was speechless. When he reached the window he made one leap ;and took sash and all with him. In falling he broke through the thin roof of a Chinese shack and landed in the midst of several Chinks sitting around the stove. This almost scared them to death and it was a race to see who could get out of the place first. Jones did not stop until he got to the Jerome hotel, where he called for a buggy and drove to BIasalt, where lie caught a train East. "\\'When he appeared at tile hotel lie was as shier as a judlge, but frightened almost out of his wits. "1 met him afterwards in Denver and I he was firmly convitnced that lie saved his life by holting through the window. I did mnot tell himi the joke for good rea I .et the man recently who had the ax.

KILLED BLACK CAT Hard luck of the endless chain variety has been the lot of Thomas Goodwin, proprietor of a Camden laundry. Now he is missing and his friends do not wonder why. These are a few of the things that have happened to Goodwin within a few months: His house at Twenty-eighth and Harri son strects burned down the day after the fire insurance policy expired. A thief stole $aoo he had saved for re building. He began raising chickens. Dogs in one night killed his best fowls. His wife left him. A horse used in a public hack died. He bought a wagon and horse and en tered the laundry business. A trolley car wrecked the wagon and killed the horse. He made a payment of $5S on another horse. Then he disappeared. The last 'horse was found dead yester day. Dr. W. B. Miller, a veterinarian, said it was starved. Goodwin killed a black cat a year ago. To this he attributes all his ill luck.
