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

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

Any man who finds a mine deserves to bo

is one thing that keeps him up. It’s hope.

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.’ ”

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

this order:

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

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

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

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

from her pretty puffed sleeves. Lace? Yes,
collars have gone by, but lace and collars

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

The latest in jewelry is rather clever,
don’t you think? A half-opened red rose,
surrounded by grben leaves, is Copied so ac

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

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
