The Hansen boys' mine was the wonder I of the neighborhood. All through the EL long s-immer dnys the youngsters had I delved and xtnped. the etronRe.it of their number standing in the broiling sun at I the mouth of the shaft, hauling up the I copper-colored dirt In sn old tin can E which they called "the bucket."

It Is Impossible to ay Just what their object was in dlln,,' the hole., but as thej hud always lived amid the surroundings of n great pr I 1 or silver camp, and tho workings of tin mlnrs and the sayings of the m I r; rp were J as familiar to them as elevated or subway " trains to a New York lad. It wai. perfect ly natural that when the agerl antici pated vacation came, they should B( i r t to play at a game In harmony with th( Ir .

"If wc only make enough so's I can go ii to Yale I tell ycu it will be hunky," said Harry' "Oh, bother," replied the mechanlcallv Inclined Rob "I wouldn't go to Vale, but to tho Troy Tech and then I could be n i coal miner like Fred Hharp. or survi ' rallroada like I nclo Jack dot B "Maybe," suggested j..e r.i "w I be ae rich as the Silver King folki ' Tea," said Jim, "raid ir we had a mil lion wouldn't we just make things hum "I wish I had a million," plaintively srpoko up Little Dick. "I know what I'd do with it" "What?" cried all the bovs in chorus "Well," said tho youthful miner. "I'd buy the spanklcst six-mule team, and I'd get a schooner wagon, and I'd paint her blue with a big tent over It. and 1 d hai S v bells and brass knobs on the harness nnd Id go to frelghtln' down to 81 George and California " ji At this tho iof; all laughed loudly and the small boy was again crushed by the wiser Jim ? reply. "Imagine a millionaire ( going to freighting with a wagon." . Jlrn drew tho lines for the hole with a minor's plrk, ad the youngsters i rted to work On the first day th( J I lean d Oft the brush and the t r lay r of earth n j doing this preliminary work the pick ' struck a hard substance, and a little later ! whs uncovered a rusty Iron wheel, about two f.-. t in diameter, which required the combitied efforts of "the nyndlcate" to re move. It was soon covered up, however, by tho gravel and dirt which six pairs Of hflnda were throwing out of the excava- ni tlon ami the Incident wan almost forgot ten by the enthusiastic gold hunters. Day by day- the boys continued ihelr labor and not a week went by without some head- way being made it was only a short dls- r tanco from their home, and as time passed oven Dick's enthuelasm did not diminish The boys would low r themselves bv tho Ii rope and Dick would be let down In the 1 cage a Clothes basket being used for this Interesting part of the dalh routine. !k I The weeks flow by all too qulcklj for V the youngsters, and Julv was nearlng Its 1 end, when a stranger appeared upon the , ' h, . ne. He was old and gray-bearded, and evidently without money When he tlrst I entered the town he gave, hie name as Jofce Garcia, and said he was from Mex ico, although he had lived long In Callfoi f nlu and Arizona. Owing t.. t In r.n l that he had no apparent occupation or aim In life, the miners gave him the name of ' the Greaser Tramp " but with the kindli ness and open-hearted spirit of their kind 9B they found frequent odd Jobs for him to Jk r do and il... ' '. : Tramp was soon a "T llxtnre In tho town. But hardly had be become settled be- for-- he was often observed to tak- from I, a I. -nther po. ketbook which he carefully carried Inside his heavy shirt, a weU , worn paper, browned with age which ho carefully studied and then, seemingly In I an aimless manner, walked up toward L the hills above town Every evening ..I :W sundown, after his ehores had been per formed to tho satisfaction Of his tempo rary employers, the Mexican would wan der o(T toward the hills and one da late In Julv he start, d much earlier In tho af ternoon than was his usual custom Us took the south trull which led up the creek, and, keeping near Its banks, sud denly came upon the Hansen boys, busily engaged at their mine "Hello, boys! what ycr doin ?': was his friendly salutation, : gglng a mine laconically replied Jim, glancing up from his task of empty ing ii can full of dirt on the dump "Yes, and we re going to have gold." volunteered Dick who was resting In the shadow of th office. "I'm looking for gold mvself." said the stranger, and then In an Inaudible tone, "It must be BOmewhereS around here, too." "Can you drive n six-mule team?" asked Dick abruptly. "You bet, youngster " replied the beard ed stranger. "I've druv em over the des ert to San Pedrp, I've nearly been scalped i the ,p... hi a dow n in New Mexico and Arizona, and I've seen my best mules die from luck of water in Death valley, down In Callforny, when we was haulln' bor ax." At this statement, which meant so much to a Western boy, the two miners gssed admiringly nt the Greaser Tramp and with the others, who had come up from the shaft, crowded around the stranger and begg.-d him for a story of his ad ventures Seating himself near "the Syndicate's" office he piled tho boys with questions. Lamed nil about their mining plans and their hopes. Then, In reply to their eager requests for a Story, he pulled out his leather pockethook and holding it In his hand, he said "Boys, I will tell you a yarn and in this here old pocketbook is the key to the whole history.' it was nn Interesting tale the pioneer of Western civilisation told tfJP bmall gr ip of boys thai afternoon, nnd it certainly made a lasting Impression on them, for Jim retold it later on and said he could remember every word of the fascinating recital which had such great bearing on future events. According to the Mexican the whole re gion of the dead sea of America had been known prior to the arrival of the pio neers of '47 or the trappers of '28, for somo Spaniards, a early as loW. ha1 shared with the Indians knowledge of tho 'country and Its resources The sage brush deserts and snow-capped peaks were quite familiar to them, and tho wealth of tho country was frequently spo ken of. In that year, more than a cen tury ago. a party of Spaniards rume up by the old Arizona trail, which tracrses a portion of the lofty walls of the Grand Canyon of the Colorado, and passed through the Knlnab rountry (.now south ern I'tah) on through the chain of val leys to tho brlnv lake Thov were looking for gold On the banks of the little Red Butte creek they at last pitched their tents, and dally there-after for weeks and months they wearily prospected the slopes of tho same hill on which the boys, of 1X) years after, were at work with equal ardor That they were successful In their search for the yellow metal there is no doubt for until years afterward they made tho trip northward, nnd always returned to Mexico laden with gold The last of the Spaniards in the secret wai one Miguel Giiseda. who started for tho mine alone in All his former companions had died, and he alone re tained the secret of the gold On leaving the hacienda on the bonks of the C'hnp Sla, he had the forethought to leave with his relative-; a minute description of the gold hill near the big lake and the exact route to follow In s"dor to teach It In Santa Pe ho met seeral Americans and half-breeds, rough cowboys they were, and In tho excitement occasioned by the loo free use of the bad liquor of the vil lage, ho became talkative and told his secret unreservedl v. Tho next morning he started north but his companions fol lowed In his palh. like panthers, eager for ' ,i, -,. On tho desert where only the cactus grew, Miguel Grlseda was brutally mur dered by the two half-breeds, and his body left to parch on the burning sands. Hl murderers with the Americans who bad heard the s.-. i. i, followed tie dli.e tlons as to the route, and traveled north Ward but never found the mine, owing to the Impossibility of locating the Red Butte creek as described The story was told and retold In Santa I. nnd year after year parties were made up for a trip to the Salt Lake country In search of the yellow metal but success never crowned their efforts, Tho paper des-criblng the route, left In Mexico by Grlseda, came Into the hands of Jose Garcia in rather a strange way. The latter was at one time n teamster on a borax train and another teamster, also a Moxlcan. whom Joso had befriended, was taken ill with B fever one night near Mojave. and calling his friend to his bed side had quickly told the story of his an cestor, and confided the precious docu ment to ldni. wlih the remark that there was a fortune In It. "I have never believed much In thai 1 II of paper." Garcia concluded In his re cital, "but having nothing to do I came fin up to Salt Lake and hav followed the directions carefully, which have brought me to this very hill, though somehow the creek don't run right according to tho pa pei " "Why!" inld Jim. ns the story rame to an end. "maybe It was near here, for we found an old Iron wheel the day wo bo gun to work our mine.' The stranger looked up interestedly and then, ns If checking something he WSS about to say he replied Instead Well, boys. If I find It near here I'll stake you all," and wlih that he shambled off down the crock. From that day on ho came regularly to tb" mine and he and the boys became the fastest friends. He ss med to have de p Interest in the creek, and would study Its course by the hour At last, one da going up the stream some distance hi discovered a point where the water had Idi ntly Chang. .1 its channel and of this he made a study for several days Pool by foot he traced the older channel and at last ho came to an Immense boul der standing alone, near what was to all appearances the former bed of the creeli In an instant He- 1 reaser Tramp was all activity. Ho climbed on the rock and looked to the north, toward a certain rounded peak, then be consulted the well worn paper Instantly hi-- eye light, d up with pleasure and anticipation He looked to the west, at the Oqulrrh range ..r mountains, and again consulted his guide He then turned hiri head slowly to a point midway between tho two mountains to a conical shaped butte rising from tho lak. and with this peak and th. Imulder on which ho Stood, the Old man. now trembling under the most Intense incite ment, drew a line to the southeast and Ills eyes rested on a group of boy; lust leaving a hole in the ground for their hi imo. Jo.se Garcia had relocated tho lost mine of the Spaniards. Next morning ho was again at "tho Syndicate s" office and finding nut tho exact ownership of the land, he propo ed to Jim that as he was nn old miner ho ROUld help them In their work with the understanding that he was to receive 10 p'i cent of all the gold that should be found in the future on the claim. Tho boys told their father of the plan, and he laughingly assented, treating the srhola matter n but unoth.-i f. atur.. of the boys' fun. The Greaser Tramp, how. r, in sisted on the matter being properly trans acted, and the neci ssary papers being signed and filed with the District Re corder When his bargain with the b:.ys was f"H S Personal Impressions of j j a Reformed Desperado j By H. E. Westgute. Those who have had tho pleasure of meeting Frank James during his stav In Salt Lake City have been greatly im pressed with him. Xot that he has scored a decided hit as nn actor, for Frank James Is not an actor by any means; not that he is different in appearance from other men particularly, but because he was once a member of tho most noted gang of outlaws that ever existed, and of his own freo will surrendered and has since lived a quiet, peaceful life. In this respect Frank James of Missouri may be termed 'the one man of a million.' I met him the other day at the Knuts ford and spfiit fnllv an hour with him We talked of every thing of hla boyhood days, the days in which he was surround ed by influences that later caused him to i lead tin- lib of an outlaw, ot his surren der i . i the Governor of the state of hiH own ftee will: of his relea.se from prison, Ol bis experiences In the theatrical line, and of blfl home life on the Old Missouri farm, which, by the way. Is a subject most dear to him. 'I think I wa.s intended for a farmer," said Mr James. "There Is something about thnt kind of a life which appeals to me and I am never really contented anywhere :ds Kspei iall do I long for the old Missouri home s I grow older. completed ho threw off tho lethargy that had formerly characterized him he pro duced money from an unknown source and ordering tools and supplies from tho City he soqii harl a good sized force nt wot k on the mire- Fir t 'he ball on by tho boys was developed and tunnels w. ie run fioni It Into the hill, while pros pecting wa9 also done at several other points. The deeper the shaft of the Han sen b..s' mine v,;.s do; ill. i ii her In came the dirt, and at last, Just before Septem br came, the gold was found. Naturally the find caused the preatest Interest. The Hansen boys and their part ners became at mice indopendntly rich, and even the 10 per cent to Jose Garcia gave him an ample reward for his long search after the gold. He declared after ward that he had been waiting for five years for an opportunity of locating the iost mine, and when success had at last crowned his efforts he found it pre empted. It was tho property of a few small boys. The find Started another gold excite ment In the neighborhood unci Miners' Knob Its name changv-d to Lost Mine hill, was dotted here and there with prospec tors who tin 1 1 y toiled In the search for gold, but none of them ever staked a claim that panned out anywhere near as rich as that of the - Red Butte Mining Syndicate.

I like to be close to nature, to be out of doors among the horses and cattle, and to live as 1 lived when a boy.

One. does not need a great deal of money If It Is Invested properly and taken care of and I have absolutely no desire, to U . jiii. dale wi alth." As Frank James made the statenrjnl that he had no desire to accumulate wealth, I could not help but think of tho times wh.-n hi had risked his life to gain S few thousand dollars. I thought of the times when h and his brother Jesse had ridden all night and all day through wood ed lands and underbrush to escape the posses In puryult 1 thought how thi y sutfered wh. n unable to secure food, and how da after day. when wounded by pis. tol and rifle bullets they had be. n nur.. d by friends, until nble to go on their way i thought of ail this and then i realized how thoroughly the good in Frank James had driven out tho bad how the longing for a quiet home life had taken the pi ice of the boyhood yearnings for excitement and tho border life. Win n you look Flank James In the eyo (and If you converse with him you will he compelled to meet his gaze) you am Im pressed with the kindly expression of his face To be sure there Is that about him which would denote firmness of purpose, that penetrating look In his eyes Which seems to pierce you. and yet It Is mel lowed by his kind voice and refined man ners. I wanted to ask him about his brother Jess and whether or nol In hla opinion he would have ever surrendered had Jesse lived, but I knew that It would bo" opening a conversation distasteful to him und I changed the subject to th Younger boys.

As you know, Cole Is now at liberty to go anywhere In the I nlted States except In Minnesota." Someway when I ngaln shook hands With Frank James and B lid good-bye io him. I had forgotten th-it he was once an outlaw Even his enemies gave him cred It In those days for protecting children and women, nnd the brothers were never known to Injure or rob a friend.

In. order to thoroughly siffS familiarize mvself with the manv complications arising from the diseases I treat. But I soon put aside a thriving family practice, with the determina- NESS tlon to devote, my life and labor to MALE MALADIES alone to originating and perfecting cures for VARICOCELE. URETHRAL OBSTRUCTION, CON- graS TAGIOUS BLOOD POISON. NERVO-VITAL DEBILITY AND ASSOCIATE OR REFLEX COMPLICATIONS. H1"" If vou are ailiK ted with any ailment peculiar to the male. I want you to investigate m new and original system of treatment. A private consul- j tatlon, a careful personal examination, together with an honest and scientific opinion of your case, will be absolutely free to you. and a perfect cure, If s you decide to take It, will not cost you more than you would be willing to pay for the benefit conferred. i PB Urethral Obstruction. Even- Victim -rf urir.ary dtpeaws Is familiar with its dreadful symptoms. Obstruction, partial closure of the ca nal, frequent and painful scaldings. prostatic irritation and enlargement snd Inflammation of the bladder. Thl dlReane can never cure Itself and often develops rapidly, and In a very short time Involves the surrounding tissues and glands, eauslng untold agony and ffvtft destruction of health. If you place any value whatever upon your life and health, to not neglect having yourself treated by my spcelnl method as It la painless, quick and certain, and it Is accomplished without the use of knife or sound. Specific Blood Poison. On account its frightful hldeoup ness, Specific- or Contagious Blood Poleon Is commonly called the KING OF ALL DISEASES. Once the syutem Is tainted with it, the disease may manifest Itself In the form of Rcrofula, eczema, rheumatic pains, stiff or swollen Joints, eruptions, 'sore throat, swollen tonalls and many ther painful and disagreeable symp toms It Is a condition that no thirty or ,plxty-day method will cure. Inasmuch as it is a disease of the blood, and only Itime and proper treatment will effect a. cure. If you have any of the. above nymptoms I nsk that you consult me at lonce I care not who has treated you and1 failed, as I will euro you by my tjystem of treatment Just as sure as lyou will come to my office for treat ment. I use no mercury or 1odldc3, thereby Insuring you when cured that your bone tissues are not destroyed. Reflex Diseases. Many ailments are reflex, originating from other diseases. For Instance.
