THE LEAD MINES OF LO.
TRADITIONS CONCERNING THF.M IN
PENNSYLVANIA.
A Blacksmith «r Foriuer Days Who Ran
lata Bullets Ore Supplied by IIHIIMIIII.
Pointer* That U« Not Develop—Red
Mel's Pipes and Weapons.
Where, if anywhere, are the lead
mines of uorthwestern Pennsylvania? In
connection with attempts to answer this
question the writer hereof, in boyhood,
harvested many stone bruises by day
and treasure dr&iuis by night, together
with numerous traditions of the days of
practically unbroken forests, bears'
grease and primeval economy.
This section, comprising parts of
northern Venango and southern Craw­
ford oounties, is about forty miles south
of Corry, sixteen miles north of Oil City,
ten miles west of Titusville and eight­
een miles east of Meadville. There is no
doubt in the minds of plenty of entirely
rational people that somewhere within,
or contiguously without, the region of
country which these towns bound, there
is a locality where an exceptionally good
quality of lead ore may be obtained, or,
at least, the locality where ore cf such
quality was obtained formerly by the
Indians, both for their own use and to
sell or trade to the white settlers. As
the source of this supply was carefully
kept a secret by the Indians—mainly of
Chief Cornplanter's tribe—and has never
been discovered, it is regarded as rea­
sonable to infer that it may yet be a
source of profit as to believe that it was
exhausted.
A PIONEER'S EXPERIENCE.
At what is now Bradleytown, a vil­
lage three miles southwest of here, on
one of the branches of Sugar Creek, a
pioneer named Jacob Jennings lived 100
years ago and had near his pioneer
house a small blacksmith shop. From
Mrs. Samuel Matson, of Chapmanville,
and John Jennings, of Sunville, some
interesting reminiscences were obtained
as related by their father, who was a
son of Jacob Jennings. The latter, at
his blacksmith shop, frequently smelted
and run into bullets rich lead ore sup­
plied by the Indians. They made peri­
odical trips to this place for that pur­
pose. Coming up from the Allegheny
river they made it a point to reach his
home in the evening, there being usually
several in the party. They would be
allowed to stay and would sleep around
the fireplaces in the house and shop. At
daybreak they would strike northward
up the creek and would return a few
hours later with a stock of the lead
product to be melted. No amount of
persuasion, of barter or of purchase
price would cause them to disclose the
whereabouts of the lead deposits.
Fifty years ago, according to a mem­
ber of the family, Mrs. Robert Gillespie
and a daughter, then a little girl, were
lost in the woods, and during their wan­
derings found along a ravine an out­
cropping of lead-filled rock, a piece of
which they took with thera. After find­
ing their way home they were unable to
find their way back with older members
of the family to the point where they
had found the lead. Various and con­
tinuous searches have been made since
along the ravines in that section, one
enthusiast devoting a considerable por­
tion of a year to the search but aside
from a fragment weighing about four
pounds, and found in afield in Randolph
township, Crawford county, where it
had apparently been dropped, no lead
ore has been discovered.
MATERIAL FOR PROSPECTORS.
The prospector able to develop point­
ers from Indian relics may find consid­
erable material in that line in this sec­
tion. At WsJlaceville, three miles south­
east of here, he may find a whole field of
yet well defined mounds and excava­
tions. A mile north of here, just across
the line in Crawford county, he may
find remnants of several large stone
piles constructed of stones having nota­
ble uniformity in size and piled up by
the Indians for some unknown purpose
before the time of the earliest settlers.
If he will follow the plow for a season
in the southwestern part of this town­
ship—Plum township. Venango county
—or the northerly adjoining township of
Troy, in Crawford county, his labors
will probably be rewarded with a fresh
stock of pipes, weapons and other relics
of the noble and ignoble Lo.
If he will further follow the plow in a
field along the Sugar Creek fiats, about
two miles north of the Jacob Jennings
homestead, and will fail to lift the point
of his plow when he reaches a certain
point in that field,
his
plow handles will
smite him hip and thigh and put him to
rout. The cause thereof will be that the
plow point will strike the edge of a circu­
lar bed of burned and pounded stone It
is about ten feet in diameter, projects to
the top of the ground
where
efforts have
not been made to get down to the bot­
tom of it, and is known to have been
there fully 150 years—how much longer
no man knows, as it was then, accord­
ing to pioneer tradition, as much a mat­
ter of mystery and antiquity as at pres­
ent.
If the lead prospector chooses to con
eider it of uo value to him, he may re­
gard it as one of the places where the
Norsemen, poking out thin way from
Newport and the vicinity of Boston,
paused to bake beans. If he is inclined
to be less skeptical he may do as tradi­
tion says the early settlers did—regard
it as the foundation of a sort of Indian
crucible or furnace which served in part
as a smelter for lead previous to the in­
troduction of firearms on this continent,
and for purposes unknown.—Plum (Pa.)

DARING JAIL BREAKING.
DAVE PADDOCK'S REMARKABLE ES­
CAPE FROM JOLIET.
AH Almost Superhuman Display of In*
genulty Exercised by a Convict to Gel
Out of Prison—Working a Pew Minutes
at a Time for Over Two Years.
A section of iron bar was cut from the
cell door of Dave Paddock by that re­
doubtable knight of the dark lantern
and "jimmy" on the occasion of his sen­
sational escape from Joliet. For over
two years Paddock has schemed and
worked to effect his purpose. He was
sent up from Rock Island on an eight
year term, and was placed at work in
one of the shoeshops, where during
eyery minute of the working hours in
the shop he was constantly under the
watchful eye of his keeper. There was
not the least chance to plan an escape
from the shop. But, not daunted at
this, he determined to find some means
of getting out of his cell at night.
To fully appreciate the difficulty of
cutting out of a cell it must be remem­
bered that three times every hour during
the night, at irregular intervals, a guard
wearing padded slippers—called "sneak
shoes" by the convicts—makes his rounds,
peering into each cell to make sure that
all are secure and in bed. Paddock first
appropriated couple of thin bladed shoe
knives from his shop, and, concealing
them from the guard, took them to his
cell, where, by using one as a file, he
converted the other into a fine steel saw.
Then by slow degrees he collected a large
amount of shoe thread from the same
shop, with which he braided the rope.
All this required months of stealthful
work, but in the course of time he had a
slender, strong rope, fully fifty feet in
length. This he kept carefully hidden in
the mattress of his bed.
Next he began sawing the bars on his
door a little at a time. Night after night
he watched for the passing of the guard,
and a3 soon as that official was beyond
hearing distance he would cut a little
and then fill up the space with black
wax, which he had also obtained from
the shoeshop, so that the prying eyes of
the guard could not discover by daylight
that the door had been tampered with.
When the bar hud been cut through he
carefully wedged it back into place with
small iron staples and bits of lead.
REMARKABLE CLEVERNESS.
He could now get outside of his cell,
but the hardest work was yet to be done.
His cell was located high up on the
third tier, some sixty feet away from
the tower door through which he hoped
to make his way. Watching his chance,
when the night guard was on the op­
posite side of the block of cells, he re­
moved the bar from his door, crawled
through the opening, and with all the
agility of a cat climbed down the railing
from tier to tier, ran across the corridor
to the tower door, and, with a piece of
shoemaker's wax, took an impression of
the lock, regaining his cell before the
guard appeared on that side of the cell
house.
By careful working he made a key out
of lead pipe that a plumber had dropped
near his workbench in the shop. Sev­
eral trips from his cell to the tower door
were made during the next few weeks
before his key would fit, and then it
took him some time to get together
enough material to make a "dummy" to
put in his bed to prevent his absence
being discovered before he could get be­
yond reach. On the very day that he
intended to make his escape, while re­
turning from the shop to his cell, he
slipped upon an icy stairway and badly
sprained his ankle. This almost dis­
couraged him. His months of anxious
toil had come to naught. His scheme
would surely be discovered. After three
weeks in the prison hospital he was sent
back to work, and when he reached his
cell that evening was overjoyed to find
that his rope, key and "dummy" were
still safely concealed in the mattress,
and everything as he had left it.
ESCAPE AND CAPTURE.
Another week elapsed before his ankle
would permit his making the attempt.
The night came, however, and along
about midnight he was safe inside the
tower. A single iron bar still stood be­
tween hiin and freedom, and it would
take long Lours of hard work to cut
through it. Just as daylight began to
break the bar gave way. The rope now
came into good use, and with its aid he
slipped down upon the prison lawn and
hurried away to the woods that line the
bluffs east of the prison. Here he found
a thicket or underbrush where he lay
hid all that day, and when darkness
came again he got away.
His absence was not discovered from
prison until the guard went to unlock
his cell in the morning. This was with­
out doubt the cleverest escape that had
taken place at Joliet, and stamped Pad
dock as a genius. Extraordinary efforts
were made for his recapture. Large
rewards were offered, and his descrip­
tion was cast broadcast. A year later it
was discovered that Paddock had a mis­
tress in Chicago. A watch was set on
her house for several weeks, and sure
enough one night Paddock put in an ap­
pearance. Captain Simon O'Donnell, of
the police department, had the plac
surrounded and the daring convict was
again in the toils. He was taken back
to his old quarters at the prison, where
he finally completed his sentence, not,
however, until he had tried several other
schemes for escape, but he was too
closely watched to ever again succeed.—
Joliet (Ills.) Letter.
Value of Huk,
Besides flowers, several other articles
are called into use by the perfumer.
Musk is the most important. It comes
out of the musk deer of the mountains
of India, China and Thibet. It is ex­
tremely difficult to obtain unadulterated,
»ud when obtained in that condition
c-(Bts twice its weight in gold. So great
the tenuity of the odor, that in an area
of five feet it gives out 57,839,606 par
tides without undergoing an appreciabh
diminution of weight.
Puuuy Mpeeehes.
Grose relates that Caultteld, meeting
Mr Thomas Sundby. said: "My deal
Sandby. I'm glad to see yon. Pray, is il
you or your brother?" It was a Spaniard
who remarked ingeniously that an au­
thor should always write his own index,
let who will write the book. Bdgeworth
relates the Btory of an English shop
keeper who did pretty well in the direc
tion of the bull projter, when, to recom
mend the durability of some fabric foi
a lady's dress, he said, "Madam, it will
wear forever and make yon a petticoat
afterward." This is quite equal to the
Irishman's rope which bad only one end
because the other haul been cut away.
Temple Bar.
A Sufficient Epitaph.
It were a pity that the good sayings
and witticisms of Lowell should be lost.
I send you one of which he was ^he
author at a medical dinner given in Lon
dou a few years ago. In his speech he
alluded to a distinguished surgeon whose
fame was so great that no marble rnonu
luent was required to commemorate the
name. The doctor's frieuds, said Mr
Lowell, thought it sufficient to lay him
in the country churchyard with the sim­
ple and famous epitaph on his grave:
HI monumentuiu quteris circumsplce.
