how PROSPECTORS OUTFIT FOR THK SUMMER. Pairris- Off into “Pards”—Getting a Grub Stake Packing: the Burro- Following' tho Float—Footsore, Hun gry and Cold—Fortunes for Some and Poverty for Others. Denver, Col., June 30.—“ Picks and shovels!” That is now the cry in the mining camps of Colorado. The month of June witnesses the begin ning of what is known in the wost as the prospecting season. Some miners start out jn May, but June is the better month, as the snows have not sufficiently disappeared from the ranges before that time. Yet sometimes the snow does not hinder, for in the days of the great carbonate excitements I have seen men locate claims when the ground was covered with snow 10 and 15 feet deep. But such scenes occur only in days of wild excitement, and then hundreds of claims are located, every fellow taking his chances on having a good property after tho snow shall have melted. In a winter rush to anew field, it no uneomcon thing to seen a man start out with an armful of stakes and locate claims as fast as he cau find vacant territory. But spring and summer is tho prospecting season proper. About February miners will begin to pair o!f into “pards” and talk over tho most available field in which to try their luck. It is a mistaken idea that all miners spend their wages in gambling and dissipation, for during the long winter months many aro looking ahead and saving their money to prospect, and hope to find a rniuo of their own before fall. Pros £~ r ":' V/" \sqr VAri-sm *** **** He, ' u i WW ''C?--v ../.trn., — — j > _ RO AND PACK SADDLE, poctors are the most hopeful men in the world. Hope is worth about $5,000 a year to a Colorado prospector. The gray-headed old miner who has searched in vaiu for a rich mine for years is just as hopeful as one young and vigorous and with his life yet before him. TWO KINDS OK PROSPECTORS. There are two kinds of prospectors. There is the man who goes to work to find a mine and develop it and make a fortune. All tenderfeet belong to this class, lor they al ways start m with most ambitious inten tions. Then there is the “constitutional” prospector, who looms up in evtry mining camp, and can fill you with Jnoro wild stories about mines and mining than could a prince of Munchausens. He ii always an old-timer, and has been everywhere. He will talk as familiarly of all thogreat min ing camps between the RockVflnouutains and the Pacific coast as will aL old New Yorker of the principal buildingßon Broad way. Ho will tell you of the nys when Tabor had not a dollar, when S hron was poor, when Mackay couldn’t War good clothes, and Joe Chaffee had tor itlo. lie is a kind of a mining camp tramp adigenous tothewest. Roughly dressed, got i- attired, whole-souled, he has generally sc 1 a cl <im for a thousand or few hundred liars and spreed it out, and that same pro wty later has made somebody a millionairtj He has always just “inis-o l” it, but nexj time lie won’t sell, “you can bet on that, pard,” he will say when talking it over. A queer, quaint old fellow is the constituMmal pros pector, a character decidedly qiiginal in every respect. Generally, ho las anew story to tell of a ricii find he had mode last fall, but before he c >uld dig the hksessment the snows came and drove him ott. “Just as soon, pard, as the snow’s off, I’m goln’ right back. It’s a second Leadfille, sure. I’ve been through Ari-zo-na, Callorny, Ne vada, Mon-tana and everywheai, hut I’ll tell yer what, boys, it beats any ning I’ve ever seed. Demit, that old su w storm came and run mo out.” Often £ -fund the wurm fires during tue long wint >• lie wifi spin out this yarn, and aro that he will take in some tenderfi t before spring who will give him a “gr o stake" for a half iuterest. But too oftelhe can't find the way back. This is only a peculiar tpye, for the most of them are unlike tne constitutional prospector, wte is sui generis. GETTING HEADY. Tho burro or jack is a necessary adjunct to every prospecting outfit, for lie is the beast of burden on tho long, nairow and precipitous trails of the Rocky iMnntatns. Docile and sure-footed, he can l ess over bights that make even the old mountaineer di2zy when looking down into tjie great chasms that yawn beneath. Brros are cheap during winter, but with thi advent of spring, when they aro needed by the prospectors, their value is greatly enhanced, and if the demand is great, a good burro or mofintain jack, which is also knovtn as the •‘skip of the desert,” will often t jing $3O. On* or two burros are purchased ind then a tent, camping utensils, flour and bacon, somejniiiiug tools, and wnatever i consid ered neo'ssary to a prospector outfit. From Vl5O to $3OO is c msidered a good grub stake ftr tlie season, but this sum Ail have to be iicreased if they should find a pro perty corth developing. Tuis is out-fitting in its c: impest and simplest form. A more costly vay is to purchase a wa’rjin and team, mil, amofig other things, tulp along an assi ying outfit, and anvil and btJlbws for ablaclsmith shop. They cau tl|en test tho ons themselves and sharpen t'plr own tools. It’s a poor miner who can't temper his | ids and sharpen a drill. A gtqd rifle, pistols and hunting knife are alwuts eou sidered nixessities in a prospector'-! outfit, Which ho carries himself for renny use when far uMn the ranges or remoni on t(ie frontier. 'Ho packing up and stalling off isqulte an ewnt. Now, tho packing of a burro is a diflbuit art. It is easy t put on the pack saddb, but w hen it comes 11 piling on the great Ihd tliis little ailimali) oopu ble of carrying it is found udi(Hoyit task. Hot only musut be tied on tight, but it must be evonlwiifianced. The little burro gives many a twist and turn in climbing the narrow an dangerous trail. No one can back a bui o liko an old-timer, Imt how u tenderfoot h i often sweated and tugged to get the loa< in and make it stick I lear that many a p us tenderfoot from the east, after r-packin his burro for a dozen times in one day, ha iften registered things in heaven from i, i crest of the ltooky moun tains, which h will, on orthodox principles, answer for hei ifter. OFF I t THE MOUNTAINS. All is ready id the boys are off. Hun dreds of times lavo .-den them start on thrir long jaunts in arch of the prccioud metals.

Off for tho mountains. tHiere and whither? The prospectors liai dly know themselves, for they are liable to drift anywhere, although they may have nad a general outline in view for the suui ™er s tri P- Hundreds of miles they muy travel before the snow drives them back to the mining camps for winter. Amid the rugged peaks of the Sau Juan, along the Natigre de Cristo, out along the Utah line, you will find the Colorado prosjiector, and before the season Dover he will meet others on like missions from Western territories. It is pleasant enough the first week or two, ami then you begin to feel those hardships which come to all on like journeys in tho mining country. Tanned bv the sun, chilled by the mountain storms, clothes, soiled and sometimes torn, feet blistered, the prospector often presents a pititiblo loosing tight. It is fun to camp out, and fish and hunt, but prospecting is hard work. Any man who finds a mine deserves to bo conie a millionaire. He earns it. It’s a life of exposure and Hardships. But there is one thing that keeps him up. It’s hope. A man could not prospect without it. Hope is as necessary to his outfit as flour and bacon. Others have found millions, and why not he? And hence, footsore and weary, he ciimbs peak after peak, hunt ing for the hidden treasures of the moun tains. r? .w; / 4 *&? T:-‘-.-y > >(. • IMi &i\ w i hj fff \\i TALKING TO A TENDERFOOT. How to prospect? Tliat is a question often asked. There is no set rule. Some who are superstitious may ask a fortune-toiler, and when they find a mountain or gulch like the one she describes, they may try tlioir luck there. Some have faith in a divining rod or crooked stick, and when it turns there js tiie place to dig. But these are su perstitions, and although many miners are superstitious they put little faith in those stories. Thoy are more apt to be supersti tious in tlie development of a mine, for there have been instances where men have worked properties under the advice of for tune-toilers. I will not vouch for the truth of it, but‘l have the statement, from a Den ver fortune-teller that $40,000 has been spent in the development of a Colorado mine under her direction. “I dare not give you the name of the man or the mine,” said the witch, “for it would hurt mv business.” But these are side issues. The only way to find a mine is to hunt for ono till you do find it. A prospector follows up the float. What is a float? Rock that contains gold or silver or both. It has been broken otf the vein at the surface, and the miner usu ally finds it far down the meuiitiiu side where the rains and melting snows have carried it. Finding a specimen which he thinks may contain mineral, the prospector begins to slowly climb the mountain side, examining the outcropping lodges till he finds what he supposes to be the vein from which the specimen or piece of float came. The blossom rock, or outcropping of the ledge, is so often oxydized that it is difficult to teli whether it contains mineral or not. So the minor begins to pick away at the ledge, and breaking off pieces, closely ex amines them with his prospecting glass. If the ledge has indieatiousof being a mineral vein, he begins to work on it, calling his partner, who perchance is near, to assist. “It looks mignty rich, lf he says, and off go his coat and vest, and iu a vigorous manner he begins delving ih the earth. Of course, he is liable to find nothing, but it is pleasant to feel rich, if only for a mo ment. If the prospector thinks the vein is worth developing, he names it and drives a location stake, giving tlie boundaries and name of the lode. What shall he name it? Men are superstitious in naming claims. What will bring good luck? Tho name of wife, baby or sweetheart is always a favorite. If a young man calls his claim “Mary,” “Jen nie,” “Alice,” or some such name, you may, as a general rule, mark it down that that is his girl’s name. As I have said, men are more or loss superstitious in mining, and you never yet saw a young fellow who did not tliink his girl’s name would bring him ?;ood luck. Fathers like to name a claim or the baby. States and towns, politicians, poets, steamboats, kings, queens, rivers, islands, and even days in the week are names us *d. The incidents or circumstances under which the mine is located often have an influence in naming a claim. Tho fol lowing in an illustr ition. The writer and four others once while prospecting, several vears ago, made a location, and the ques tion came up as to what we should name it. Various names were suggested, but wore unsatisfactory. “I havo it,” said one of the party. “Four of us are masons; let us name it tho ‘Four Masons.’ ” ~ . y i:- V v-• - - V*. -- r rsr e-.,' r ■ *Jhtls - i j WK > A * SECURING A LOAD. The name having been agreed upon and the general course of the vein noted, tho stake is driven. It is usually a pine tioard, Miners in locating a property follow no spe cial formula. They put on the date, name und boundary in such a way that any ono cau readily understand their intentions. Suppose tlie location bo made Juno 1, and tlie locators are John Smith and William Jones, anil the name chosen is tho “Boston,” 'the side of the stake will have a roughly written inscription running something iu this order: Boston Lode. Located Junk 1,1833. We, tho undersigned locators, hereby claim by right of discovery this Ist day of Juno A.

With pick and shovel, climbing the rugged peaks, often hungry and cold. \ear in and year out he may have searched in vain, but at last the precious treasures of the mountains are his. But some never find it. It’s an old story in the mining camp to hear some fellow say that if he should strike it rich that season he would visit his peoplo iu the east, which perchance he Ims not done for ten, fifteen, or even twenty years. But he does not strike it, and year after year ho drifts further away from the thoughts and associations of his childhood. There aro fortunes for some and poverty tor others. The questiou often comes by letters from tho oast. “Can I make money in the mines?” Tiiere is only one fair and honest answer. Nobody knows; you must try for yourself. "WillC. Ferril. WOMEN FOLK AND THEIR WAYS. Some of the Whims, Caprices and Se rious Doings of the Gentler Sex. New York, June 30.—The ladies’ saloon of a big sound steamer on a hot summer night presents a spsctuclo for gods and wo men. Talk about the modesty or immodesty displayed by feminine travelers in a Pull man sleeper; no sleeping car ever touched rails which could compare for midnight effects with the scenes to be witnessed in a packed boat with the mercury well up sky ward. Tlie exodus from New York and Brooklyn to points in New England loads the Sound bouts to their utmost capacity. Not infre quently it happens that every stateroom for the night’s voyage is engaged hours beforo tho boat saiis. Those unfortunates, and there are scores, sometimes hundreds, of them wiio coino on board too late, when every coveted key is hanging from some body’s else finger, break for tliemen’s and women’s cabins respectively to secure tho berths ranged along tlie walls. These extra accommodations are limited, and still tlie gang plank is crowded with passengers whose choice is between sitting up and lying on the floor. Until 10 o’clock or half past everything goes merrily. Then the band ou deck stops playing and those who have beds seek their repose. Tho men who have no beds have tue largo upper saloons in which to dis port themselves, the wo.neu, who very likely outnumber the sterner sex, gathering in the smaller ladies’ saloon off tho main deck to look at ono another with forlorn eyes. Presently tlie p u-ters lug in piles of mattressss and begin to spread them on the carpet in regular lines covering the floor. The stewardess apportions to each mat tress a blanket and tho tired women begin to grab. She who first sots her foot or throws her luggage on a mattress noi.s it is, the rule of first come first served holding absolute sway. If disputes threaten to arise the colored stewardess aud her cham bermaids settle them summarily, servants on their way to join families at Newport and richly tires-oil ladies yielding obedience with tue same instant submission. It is on the stewardess that their last hopes of comfort for the night depoud. She can give one a pillow or sue can withhold. She might even deny the mattress and reduce one to the ranks of wretchedness still sit ting iu chairs up and down tho middle of the saloon. THE MATTRESSES DISTRIBUTED, the women begin to take off their clothes. They are hot, demoralized by their unwont ed situation, sleepy; thoy do not even notice that their audience is not altogether of their own 83. x. the colored porters are bustling about, and oocasiouelly a white deckhand or officer may have business in the saloon. There is a double low of staterooms on either side of the apartme.it and the occu pants of these, masculine as woll as femi nine, are coming and going. Neverthe less the dress slips off, the corset is unfast ened and tho mascutiue spectator has a fine opportunity to study white shoulders and variotios of the species bustle, while rows of weary women sit ou the edges of their mattresses to unbutton their shoes. Occa sionally a scrupulous damsel awakens to a partial sense of tho conventionalities. In this case she picks up her blanket, drapes it toga-fashiou about her and feels herself then fully equipped for a promenade or u peep througu the windows ou the tossing water outside. Many a woman who would feel her self disgraced if a morning visitor caught sight of her morning gown, yawns in ihe face of a passing teliow traveler as she stands unconcernedly in a short white petti coat, barefooted, while he takes in the oper ation of combing out her hair. One by one the white figures lie down and pull the blankets over their shoulders. Not very closely, however, for the saloon is close aud hot. Tho door is opening. It is one of the porters returning. Ho is stand ing over one of the sleeping women, who awakens very much en deshaoille and looks up lazily into his eyes. “Your husband is outside. He’s afraid you’ll lose your ticket. He sent me in to ask you to give it to him.” “All right,” comes tho careless answer,and the precious piece of pasteboard is pulled out of her bosom and consigned to his hands. Thero are three electric lights burning In the room. At 2 'ocloek in tho morning there is a jangle from the electric bell. A woman traveling alone who has a stateroom off the cabin is ringing the stewardess ud a id inci dently waking t ie whole roomful to ask that somebody will tell her tlie tune. Down in tlie women’s cabin bel iw, where no men may enter, the scene is still more interesting. The ballot troupe of a specific ular play are among the passengers, and tho ballet girls, who are not at all sleopy, are silting up in scanty white draperies, mixing glasses of lemonade and pelting one another with oranges. One of t.iieni lias a pistol which she points at the stairway, threatening to shoot any one of the porters traveling about overhead if he ventures to come down. In the morning the night spectacle is re peated with variations. There are babies who must bo nursed before their mothers can dress, but by and by every one is washed, combed, rospectable and conven tional again. They would hardly believe the tale of taeir own carelessness of an hour back if an eye-witness were to tell them what he had seen. MRS. JAMES BROWN POTTER is a go. xl judge of hats, she hasn’t much tact and she is ruining her complexion. These three conclusions wore reached by a group of women who observed her negotiating in a millinery house some iluys before her de parture oil her present expedition for Paris gowns. For half an hour previous to her entrance on tiie scene a sphinx had been perplexing Broadway. The mercury was dancing merrily iii the neighborhood of 90”, but a tali, slight women, heavily veiled, Seemed not to be conscious of tho heat. Who wore black inull from head to foot, but neither tlie furicifully cut directory gown, nor tne lug poke lint, nor the gracefully draped folds which hid the ftice, carried any sug gestion of mourning. \V hen she passed into the millinery store she threw back tne veil and Mr-. Potter stood revealed. rilie was lan it on shopping and it present ly appeared that she shopped a; ter a meth od of her own. A low toned inquiry of an attentive little Frenchwomen in charge brought out Six or eight bandboxes carefully tied up with ribbons, which, after further inaudible directions, were heaped in one corner. A large bamboo screen, whose summer office was to hide the view of the ’ fireplace, was next called into requisition to cut off the view of something eKe, Mrs. Potter hersolf superintending its arrange ment in front of the full length mirror which wai to reflect the view of her pretty head. The rustle of unpacking then Isigan behind the improvised cover, the half dozen other shoppers present eyeing one another witli looks which s?>oke of amuvemout, pique and curiosity only half restrained. If a woman wants to find out a thing trust her fmjdiscoverlng a way. It wss not long before sn enterprising genius mane the dis covery that a certain mirror in the parlor was sj placed as to give back what was imaged in its matt* behind tho screen. Six pair of eyes were bunt on it in no time, and six mouths puckered themselves in involuntary admiration of the neat little toque of black lace and but tercups w hich they lieheld ut that moment on Mrs. Potter’s head. It was an interest ing spectacle, half adozen mischievous faces staring hard at one grave, absorbed face struggling with the problem of its own headgear. Mrs. Potter satisfied herself at length and emerged from her retirement, leaving or ders to have the lace and buttercups cent home. She left Hie establishment without scorning conscious of the existence of tho half dozen, of whom, never! lieless, silo had contrived to make unfriendly critics, who will neither sound praises of her beauty nor buy seats at her plays. If she had been Mrs. Langtry, in hew much more demo cratic faßliloa she would havo managed, which means that one woman knows how to humor women and tlie other docs not, a difference which tells nowadays. YOU WOULD NEVER GUESS TO LOOK at a girl nowadays what it is that she is wearing about her neck, and peeping out from her pretty puffed sleeves. Lace? Yes, collars have gone by, but lace and collars nlike wilt in July like flowers ill the face of the sun, and her fixings do not fear to meet his anient gaze at all. Why should they when they are made of stoil: Steel lace is the newest novelty of all things not old. Sounds queer to talk of pntt'ng such a yoke about one’s neck voluntarily, does it not ? but look atoecond time and see. The steel lace has meshos as soft, a pattern as iniri cate and delicately woven, a thread as flue and details of every sort ns perfect as if done in silk. It is light and cobwebby in texture, too, floating out on tho breeze if a breath strikes it. It is cool, it is durable, it comes in any color you fancy, what more would you? The latest in jewelry is rather clever, don’t you think? A half-opened red rose, surrounded by grben leaves, is Copied so ac curately that yon would hardly guess by looks, touch or smell that you had not in your hand tlie real thing. This rose is meant to be pinned on the front of a white gown just where tho dainty lawn meets tlie dainty skin. To hold it in place it is wired ever so lightly with gold, and on one petal hovers a golden butterfly. Another one of these “art” flowers, a fragrant white pond lily, with a brilliant summer fly In enamel just alighting upon it, is a conceit in tlie same lino given to a youug girl a day or two ago. E. P. H. CURRENT TOPICS. Margaret Mather, a New Book and Ingersoll’s Latest Bpeoch. New York, June 29.—The case of Mar garet Mather vs. J. M. Hill fills up the gup made in theatrical mutters by the close of the season. It is the old story of the fac titious celebrity turning on her maker. Miss Mather is the Galatea of Pygmalion Hill. He took her out of the quarry of ob scurity and carved her int > theatrical fame. He made a specific contract with the block of marble to do it, and a< soon as the block began to take o' form and attract attention, it found voice enough to 'say that it would have grown into beauty and eloquence in spite of Mr. Hill; it was tlie inherent quality of all blocks of marbio to develop into Parian sta'ues without sculptors. Mr. Manager Hill has been trying to prove iu court that this is not true. But Mather looks over tho top of her fun, acts, winks and smiles, and thero is a general tendency to believe iu the block. I suppose the professional success of Mather during the past five years is ono of the most glaring examples on record of the modern theatrical methods of maim factoring popular success. I saw Miss Mather when Mr. Hill made her contract five years ago. She already had a contract with an actor named George Edgar. Stic told Mr. H U that sho was freo, and broke her contract with Edgar to sign with Hill. At that time she was as ignorant as any woman I over encountered who wanted to play Shakesperian rules. She could not read the lilies of Juliot without inverting the senso and violating tee commonest rules of grammar. She struck me as a woman without breeding or art association. She was coarse in delivery and reckless in action. She could not carry- on a Conversa tion about acting. But she palpitated from head to foot with animal passion;a certain impetuous sensuouauess colored all sho did, and Mr. Hill thought she could be educated and shaped. At all events he undertook to educate and shapo her, and to awaken pub lic curiosity In her.; In one respect ho was remarkably success ful. He made the public believe hi her. He bulletined her from Penobscot to Pensa cola. I watched the rising tide of enthusi asm with interest. All that Mather did was to sit still wheq she was not acting and see the world move. “ W hen she is famous and great how will you hold her?" I asked Mr. Hill one day. “I depend on har loyalty," said ho. It is a strange anomaly that practical business men in ihat profession have to. Managers all over the country are watch ing tho trial with interest, to see if a cast Iron contract with an actress is worth any thing b it t he paper it is written oti. Something of a sensation lias been created here iu literary circles by Mrs. Deland’s book, “John Ward, Preacher.” I confess that I could not for several days shako off the terrible impression made bn my mind by it. A grout deal lias be m written about Miss Rive’s "Quick and the D ad," but here is a book that beside it is like the fathomless depths of the ocean beside a Shallow suiilit pmid. This will appear all the more remarkable to you when I tell you that the novel doals with religion and in a torribly realistic way puts Agnosticism and Calvinism side by side I don’t think any such terribio blow has been dealt at tlie doctrine of “Reproba tion” as this imaginative story, deals, and certainly no recent effort in fictitious liter ature lias drawn such a pure, heroic ideal and self-sacrificing love as is hers sot forth. The book is one of the signs of the times and indicates wlmt a large share of tlie in telligent thought of our day in given to the problems of religion. Apropos of this subject a great deal of good-humored badinage has boon exponded in town on what is called the “descent of Bob ingorsoll” iu Chicago. It Is prettv well understood here that n certain shallow following of lint expected him to repeat his Blaine triumph in favor of Gresham, and tue egotism of tlie genial pagan led him to believe he ould. Tilt) const q nonces were sudden and i litas turns enough to bo funny. Democrats und re publicans—disagreed in everything cite united in laughing at Bob. Free trade and protection howled unanimously and scoff liigly. Infidels and Christians compromised in denunciation of it. I understood that, the general has stated to several of his pri vate friends that he intends to confine him self to Gladstone and let politics alone after this. It will be a good thing for politio*. Both the nominees now before tlie American peo ple are worthy, reputable, lepresentaUvo Citizens, and the system of defamation and vituperation applied toeitlior ought to have the heel of reprobation planted on it at once.
