I Conant In Boston Tranacrlnt.l .rt WKSfiVscfthoTfrat1 fe'dldv taker Wtl In a camp such ns Deadwood wns iu its early days Is simply washed out from tho puiul and gravel of tho stream ami from1 the dirt on IU banks, Evqry minor stakes out his claim dad irdeVfo washing: If he' finds "pay dirt. " alt right. Ho makes, .money, fast ,ontL very likely .sponds.H. faster. If ho finds himself on a claim which yields nothing, .ho curses his luck nnd goes to work to sell his claim. A, few dollars worth of dust aro sprinkled over tho sit'rfaco and n tenderfoot brought on to Inspect tho claim. A fow panfuls nro washed out with good results, and tho bargain struck on tho spot Tenderfoot parta with his money nnd receives a' f ull equivalent inexperience. Hilt as tho camp grows older thoso "salted" claims become harder to sell. Tho prospective purchaser insists upon working for a day or two before ho Is willing to purchase. Then tho old head must find somo way to outwit him. A largo 'nugget chances to bo found which would turn tho head of almost any prospector, llo proposes to buy at once. No. Tho claim is not for sale now. Price Increased. Contemptuously rejected. In-Creased again. Again refused. Finally purchased at such n figure that tho lucky seller deems it prudent to rellro from the camp without waiting forcoming developments. But a little the shrewdest salo I ever kuow of was made by a claim owner who Invested about $20(1 in coarse dust, loaded it into a shot gun' In small chnrires nnd ltrcd it at short range Into a bank" of soft earth on his tfnlrn. Prospectors were invited to dig into that bank as far as thoy choso to go, and within1 thrco days that claim was sold for over .5,000. It is but-fair to say, howover, that comparatively fow claims were disposed of In this fashion. UNLUCKY INVESTOItP. In many cases rock which showed a good percentago of gold was found?' Then a mill of five, ten. twenty or perhaps sixty stamps costing at least $1,000 a. stamp, would bo erected. A few good runs might follow, and then tho end of tho deposit bo reached More frpquently tho gold would rcfuso to bo captured by tho ordiuary process of treatment, and the enterprise would bo thrown up in disgust by the unlucky investor A score of lust such properties Ho within a radius of a fow miles of Deadwood. Time will reveal somesproces3 by which , tho gold can bo extracted cheaply enough to make tho working of tho mlne3 pay. Now thoy aro as valueless as though thcro was no gold theroin. A favorite method for bleeding tho man who has money to lose has been to throw worthless rock, or worthless property In some shape or othor upon tho market In the east. Sometimes a tenderfoot so tender would be found that ho cotdd bo persuaded to invest a part or all of his property in mines which had no more real cxistonro than Lllliput or Some, more careful, would institute inquiries. If thoy found out tho truth thoy were fortunate. Others would send out an agent to look the field over. Now comes one of tho most Interesting of all the processes employed in tho eager investor. Ask a man who has not been to school to explain how ho would dotermlno tho value of a mine, and ho will very likely t pay: "Take samples of the rock from dilfcrcnt places and have thorn assayed. Make tho tests extend over the entire property -and you will get tho average value of tho rock. " All very well as far as it goes. .Ask a practical miner tho same ucstion, and his answer will be this: "Tako a fow tons of tho rock to a good mill and havo it run through, Sets what the run returns, and you can gajn some idea of the character of your ore. " Now most of the agents sent out by eastern investors may nave had much knowlcdgo upon many subjects, hut mines were to them oooks written in an unknown language If thoy cou'd not be cheated, they wcro bought; and if thoy could not bo bought, thoy were cheated. A fow thousand dollars In their own pockets often produ. ed a rose-colored report to tho eastern party, and when that would not work, the samples of oro were in somo way freely "salted. " THE ritOCESS OK "SALTING." Salting is a simple process, being merely tho scattering of suflicient gold into the samples of ore to mako a showing of gold bearing rock rich enough as to abundantly satisfy, but not so rich to cause suspicion. Then tlmo would tako care of the rest, Our eastern investor would see in his mind's eye a gold mino of untold value and himself tho millionaire owner. Works would eo ud on nrooortv as innocent of any paying oro as the granite hills of Now England, and our friend would find tho vast wealth ho had so confidently forscon coming to him only In tho form of unwelcomn experience. A man now protnlnont in this section of the territory (old mo of tho following incident as illustrating tho actual eagerness displayed by some of tho early explorers to be gulled and cheated. "In early days, " ho'iwld, "I was in the livery business, nnd one day a fat old German came lo my stable and wanted mo to drive him out a fow milts to seo the country. You remember that high hill on the right before you reach tho chicken ranch down on Oilman's toll road? Well, we got to talking about mining claims and how much money somo of tho fellows had made here in Deadwood gulch', and I found he swallowed everything I told him. and seemed to think gold was In the rp ks nil around us, Finally 1 thought I d chat him a little. 'Why,' said I. -do you seo that high hill over there? Well, sir, I haven't a doubt that property is just as full of gold as the Home-stake mine.' He looked kind of ucpr, and didn't say anything, hut the old chap actually went and located a mineral claim there within threo days and before ho left for his home he lived In Minnesota put n man in chargo of that claim and left him tjG.000 to sink a shaft with. The funniest port of It, too, was that the man went right to work and spent the whole of that money honestly prospecting for gold Of courso he never found a grain. Tho old Dutchman didn't put. up any more moncv, nnd I guoss his stf .000 investment cooled him off a little and taught him a lesion about gold hunt lnjj. " The Springfield Arsenal, .Cftl.'awTlmeij.l Tho plcturesquoccss of tho arsenal at Springfield, with its rows of burnished guns that inspirited Longfellow's poems, has been lost The ordnance officers no longer stack tho muskets behind glass to look pretty and gather dust and rust, but pack thorn in well-painted boxes, coated with petroleum paper. They aro then always ready for suipmont, nnd suffer no damago as time goes on. uioide.
