: LOST MINE ON
THE PORCUPINE
>
?
' Every mining country has ut least
> one "lost mine," and Alaska is no
\ exception to this rule. On this coast
' the tradition has it as the "Lost Rus
> slan Mine,' in Idaho and Nevada it
I is the "Lost Cabin," and so on.
^ In the interior of Alaska it is the
- "lost prospector" who finds the hld
. den wealth, and then, being short of
grub, leaves his find and makes his
way to the town, and through sickness
or death is never able to return to
his discovery.
In both cases, however, a map care
fully drawn is always left with *i boon
companion or partner, and this forms,
along with the story of the richness
of the strike, the basis for the efforts
? that are made to locate the lost
|i ground ever after.
) There is the "Lost Cabin Find, that
? has caused so many stampedes; on
! the Yukon there is "The Lost Rock
j er" mine, where a prospector rocked
? a fortune and then built a raft and
. floated down the Kuskokwim and lost
) the poke in the river, subsequently
; dying before his return to the scene
? of his And.
I On the Kenai peninsula are tales of
| the mines located by the early Rus
? sian traders, who covered them up in
order to keep the Oreat White Czar
j from stealing them.
Then there are the mines hat have
? been found by the Indians or natives
) and who have confided in the Russian
. priests, who have guarded the secret
I so well that it only annually leaks out
? through devious channels and is hand
? ed to some prospector, together with
? *he inevitable map, and again the
? rush is on.
? The lost mines of Alaska are as
? bad as lost treasures of the islands
? of the South sens. 4
? This year the lost mine sensation J *
? is being furnished by an outfit com- < ?
| posed of Horace and Frank Huddle- o
? stone, fieorge Lewis, Fred Oakes and
Phlll Ott. They outfitted In Fair- < >
banks and hiked for the Porcupine,
the place where the map shows that
the treasure is hidden.
Oakes has a map that gives the lat- <>
itude and longtitude, and Lewis, who J J
< ?
4
is an engineer, will have the job of
locating the gold.
The party has a small steamboat,
two poling boats and a year's provis
ions, and is prepared to winter at the
headquarters of the Porcupine and
spend next summer there if neces
sary.
JAS. GILLEN COMES IN.
James Gillen the old time prospec
tor is back In town again. Mr. Gil
len has been up in Silver Bow basin
? for some time doing assessment work
on the Winn and Gillette properties.
W. W. CASEY, Jr., TO LEAVE.
W. W. Casey, Jr., who has been
holding down a position in the cya
nide plant at Treadwell will leave for
the South on the next Humboldt.
Mr. Casey will go to Moscow, Ida
ho, where he will enter the law school
of the University of Idaho.

WINNING MOOSE WILL
HAVE A BANQUET.
The banquet hall of the new Com
mercial Cafe, at the corner of Frank
lin and Front streets, will be turned
over to the Loyal Oredr of Moose on
the evening of the opening day, Doc.
9.
This event will be the celebration
of victory by the winning campaign
committee. For some time two com
mittees have been working to Increase
the membership of the order and
among other things it was agreed
that the committee bringing In the
greatest Increase should be banquet
ted at the expense of the less sue- .
cessful. This is the time and place
for the payment of the forfeit.
CITY COAL SHOULD
MOVE MUCH FASTER.
Since the announcement in The
Empire of a probable coal shortage,
several people have taken the precau
tion by laying In a winter supply but
the city wharfinger says that many
must have forgotten the situation for
the demand has slackened somewhat.
If _the people are to have the pro
tection that the city can give, It Is
essential that the coal now In the
Bunkers be bought and carted away
so that the city can order more while
the coal is obtainable.

IMPARTIAL tests made by The Columbus Labo

a higher rating than that of the Dakota all-Hard
Wheat Patent Flour.
Considering that this scientific combination of East- -
ern Hard Wheat and Western Soft Wheat costs you
from 20 to 25% less than what has always been con
sidered the highest grade of breadstuff, you can readily
