A Specimen or Silver Ore Worth 818,000 per Ton A Mexican Specimen From Colorado The 311s take a Swindler Made. New York Sun. "Some big liare come Into the assayer's office once in a 'while. " a down-town assayer said incidentally in a talk about dining property, u but I think the tw biggest liars I have ever seen came into my office last summer, not together, thank foodness, for if they had 1 would have icked them out for supposing that I might be an infernal foot Instead I listened to each, and then gave him a piece of my mind. The first was about 45 years of age, sharp-featured, long haired, and with the appearance of a western miner. He carelessly unwrapped a newspaper from a lump of silver ore, and asked in a business-like way to have it assajred. I picked up the lump and said oll-hfind: There's no need of having that assayed. Its 75 per cent, silver al first glance.' And it was. It was aboul as rich a specimen as I had seen in some time. It was worth at least is,000 a ton. " 'But I waut it assayed,' he said. "I've got a drift of ore like that six feel wide, and I want to sell it, I don't wanl to lie about it, and I want to know just what it U worth.' "About four days after the assay four oi five respectable old gentlemen came inta the office together, and one of them un wrapped a piece of ore, and said: ' Will you please assay, this for us? We ar thinking of buying a 6ilver mine, and this is some of the ore. What do you think it is worth?' " 'Excuse me, but I have assayed this ore within five days,' I said. 44 "Y-c-e-s,1 thj spokesman of the party said, hesitatingly. 'We understand thai it has been assayed, but Ave thought it would be safer to have it assayed for u particularly. IIow much did you make il out to be worth?' 'Twelve or fifteen thousand dollars a ton,' I said, not wishing to be too particu lar at first, 'I'll see.' "While I was looking over my record book I noticed the gentlemen looking knowingly at one another. It was 18,000,' I remarked, turning toward them. It didn't start them a bit. M 'That's pretty rich, isn't it?' " 'Decidedly so. "Where's the mine?' 1 asked. 'In Colorado. "We have a drift there six feet wide.' 44 'Colorado!" I exclaimed. 'That ore never has seen Colorado. That's from some Mexican mine.' "I knew what I was talking about when I said that, because I can pick out Color ado ore from 2,000 specimens. I can pick out ore from the Comstock lode anywhere you put it. After getting a few mora particulars about the man who wanted to. sell the mine, I said; t "Gentlemen Ldon'J. want you taken in by 'anybody, and espec ially by one of " those western mining sharps. Instead of taking my word fox this assay, go to somebody else, and I've no doubt you'll find many who will be aa honest with you as I intend to be, and have your ore. assayed. Take some of this dust with you and see if it be like your ore.' 'But we can buy this mine for onlv $50,000 the first speaker said. u 'If you can find a mine where the ore is all like that,' I said, 'I'll find men who will give you $50,000,000 for it That Isn't a true specimen, and, besides it isn't from Colorado. It's a rich find from "They looked rather glum and went out. I really pitied them. The next day the western man came in to see me. I gave Jt to him hot. 'Look here.' I said, we've had just about enough of such fel lows as you are around here. When you come on here to sell a mine, don't try to palm off Mexican ore for Colorado ore Take my advice, and don't show that lump to any miner, because he will know it in a minute. Now skip.' "I have never seen the old gentlemen since. I guess they found somebody who told them the truth as I did. "The other chap was a short, dumpy fellow. He wanted to have everything very secret. He had a piece of ore that I knew was Mexican, and it was a long time before I could get anything out of him. At length ho said: I'm a commercial traveler, and while I was in Mexico this summer I struck an old trail over tho mountains that, I thought, would take mo by a short cut to where I wanted to go. 1 took it, but it wTas the roughest ground I ever struck. About noon I was almost overcome, and I dropped off my mulo near a shady place to catch a nap and rest. My mule, that was wandering about, awoke me after a while by nearly stepping on me. In pulling my blanket off the hump that had served as a pillow, . I noticed that the rock sparkled. . It struck me all at once that it was silver, -and I looked around to see if there were any other rocks like that I don't know whether you'll believe it, but a short distance off the trail the ground was covered with them. I picked up about twenty pounds and packed them on my mule and started for the nearest settlement I didn't say any thing to anybody in that neighborhood, and 1 didn' dare to have the ore assayed until I got to El Paso. But I inquired . about the price of land, and found I could buy that piece of ground for about $15,000. I ve come on here to raise that and then start a mine. What do you think the ore is worth?' ttI took the fellow all in and said: 'Did Syou pick this off the ground?' " 'Certainly,' he replied. 44 'Was it in this condition?' 44 Of course,' he answered, although ha was beginning to be frightened. " 'Then you are the biggest liar I have ever seen,' I said very decidedly. "The fellow winced, and I continued: 'You don't know anything about ore, and you don't know anything about Mexican land. This ore came from some mine more than twenty feet under ground, and it isn't recessary to buy Mexican land be fore starting a mine. You tell your story well, but you'll have hard work to find anybody who will give you $15,000 Lot Mexican laud. Get out.' "There's a great difference, you know, in the appearance of ore that has lain on the surface any length of time and that of ore just dug from underground. The lat ter is more crystallized, for one particular. The surface j lickings are what we call th; results f a blow-out. Two drifts, com ing top.'11-er. peak-shaped, are gradually projected out by the washing away of th earth. Wati-r gets ia the crevices, and after a while tie peak breaks into pieces which are scattered over the surface. I' that oilier rlinp had surface ore he migb. have been 1 cli'evivl. except that part abou ihe laud, v.hlcii was way off. " Book-Shaped Menu.
