WRITTEN FOR TIIE SUNDAY RKPUDLIC. Miss Emma II Stelper, who once con ducted Seidr Orchestra through a con cert, consisting entirely of her own com positions, and who !b well known as a musician and composer, has decided to be come a professional miner. She returned from her third trip into Alaska last fall, and after a course In mineralogy and met allurgy at Columbia University, she is now on the way to Alaska wild-., where she ha the holding of her own discovery, the value of which It Is Impossible to esti mate. ' Miss Etelner's career In the North has been full of adventure. She was the first woman to go Into the Seward Peninsula aad la tho dlacoverer of tin deposits there which are at present tha only deposits of commercial value on the American Conti nently. She endured great hardships on a trip of ISO miles from Nome, partly by canoe Ions; the shallow coast and partly by pack train Into a barren wilderness, to which eVven fuel had to be carried In from the coast on men's backs. Her discovery Is considered one of the most Important mineral finds in recent years, as the enor mous amount of tin used In manufactures in this country has all been Imported from abroad hitherto. A daughter of Colonel Frederick B Steiner of Baltimore, this woman of many achievements is probably best known as the author of the little song "She's Irish." She also wrote the operas "Fleurette" and "The Little Hussar" and five other op eras BT EMMA It. STEINER.

With me was 3119 Florence Holly-Handy. Wo were going Into the Tork district, 113 miles bj water along the coast and fif teen miles further over an uncertain trial, over which we must carry clothes, pro visions, tools and even fuel. The right fork of Buck Creek, which we hid decided on as tha least prospected, was reached at last. The country Is bare of any vegetation, except a little moss and grass, and is most forbidding. Buck Creek runs through great rounded hills and deep cut valles of glacial drift the most desolate-looking region I have ever seen But the scenery is grand. From Cone Moun- away Into the distance without us. But tain you can see Siberia, the Axtlc Ocean, Lopp'i Laroon, Ear Mountain and a vast expanse of land toward tha North Pole. Now came days of exciting Interest and more hard work. Our men Instructed u In the rudiments of prospecting for placer gold, and with pick and shovels and pans ws began a systematic starch of the creek banks and benches. Sometimes ws found a few "eclors" of gold and once we struck a near little pocket that jielded a couple of ounces of the jellow- dust, but which soon petered out iriiquentiy arter pan ning a shovel of dirt some curious, rather lustrous black sand that looked like Iron rnialncl at the bottom. Week-i passed and little gold had been ffund. We were growing discouraged In deed. One da Sam, one of my men, panned out a particularly large lot of the shiny, black stuff. "What Is that, Sam?" I asked. "I dunno. Miss Steiner, I never seed it before.'" "Better pan out a lot of It. Bam. We ought to find out about It." "I suppose It might be tin," ssld he, doubtfully, as he poured It Into his hand. Tin! I'd heard there was tin In Alaska, but never thought It worthy of much at tention. I'd never heard of anybody get ting excited over tin. But my curiosity was aroused, and, taking some of the black sand back to the tent, I got out a treas ured textbook and a little case of chem icals brought all tho way from Kerr Tork, and In an hour had worked myself Into a fine frenzy of excitement, and tha reat of the party as well. Now for the first time I learned that no tin In commercial quantities had ever been found in America, and that nearly twenty million dollars' worth was used In the United States annually, all of which had V .alB''T.'VlBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBK'3 sLsBBBfc .aSBSSt iHklBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBaBJBB''VBBB 'X rSZTTTG TJNBV SklKT XNT COAT COSTUME.
