FORMERLY TITE PIOCIIE WEEKLY RECOTlD.
PIOCHE, NEVADA. FRIDAY. MARCH 3, 1905,
The Man Who Finds The Mine.
This is the way tbe untamed editor
of the Custer (Coloaado) Guidon
sizes up the prospector:
"Here he comes with the overalls
or cordurorys well marked with
gouge or grease, usually both. His
whiskers are ragged and he has a
hungry physiognomy, Listen to
bis tale of riches to be acquired if
only the hole could be sunk deeper.
Who is the ouss? Sometimes he is an
individual who could resurrect a
sheepskin issued by Mr. Eliot of
Harvard. Oftener he is a plain
American citizen with little school
ing, but versed in the lore of in
dividual contract and being 'up
'Nutty? Not much only born
with the pioneer instinct the wand
ering foot the ear which hears only
the call of wind. Many of them?
Si, Senor; many. Every boy who
hacks his name in the fence with
his jackknife is a relative of Daniel
Boon, the same who in his Kentucky
cve cut "D. B." on the rock wall
of his refuge from savages, there to
be read with wistful feelings by
those who now dwell in fair Ken
tucky. "The prospector is always a liar.
He can not help it. The bright sun
ahine reflected from the snow masses
which cover his beloved rocks, the
vast stretches of mountain ranges,
looking like a frozen ocean spread
before him as he gazes, from a star
striking peak, the vivid sunset which
he admires almost daily, the exag
gerations of the atmosphere, his
natural exuberancy and abnormal
bump of hope all these make him a
liar even with himself.
"Blessed be the prospector, and
may he, when his days are numbered
depart to a realm where every rift in
the clouds discloses to his fascinated
eye a pay streak of gold, and may he
at least depart to a place where there
are plenty of canned Boston baked
beans, and a sufliciency of baking
power, sow bosom and flour, for the
prospector is the man who finds the
mines thut furnish tbe gold for the
world to do business on. Curse him
not, ye infidels.
An unknown wanderer, Charles
Howard by name, was found sitting
dead in his chair in Reno hotel yes
terday." He was young and without
A Tonopah dispatch says: The
richest mine yet discovered in the
Bullfrog country and possibioly in
all southern Nevada, now seems to
be the Shoshone group, belonging
to X. E. Edwards and laying a short
distance from the town of Beatty.
There is a proposition on foot to
introduce a bill which will require
all the saloons to pay a State liquor
license. The rate will be low ($50 a
year),but the revenue from the 1100
saloons in the State will amount to
between fifty and sixty thousand
dollars. Carson Appeal.
Hank Summers, first mayor of
Nome, is in Gbldfield. While in
Alaska he cleared up $160,000, which
he lost in other mining ventures.
His pocketbook was so thin that he
walked from Tonopah to Goldfield.
He has located several properties at
Lida, and hopes to make another
fortune Tonopah Sun.
T. E. Goodrich, superintendent
of the Western Ore Purchasing Co.,

discharge of his duties. The deceas
ed was passing under a bolt at the
plant when, without warning it

crushing out his life. Another em
ployee by the name of Guzzi was
also injured by the broken belt.
Battle Mountain Nevadan: A 100
ton lot of ore from the Shamrock
mine gave, a high extraction at the
Wynn & Lasher mill, now that the
vexation problem of satisfactory
treatment by the cyanide process has
been solved. The new plant is be
ing refitted in accordance with the
experience gained at the old mill. It
is now expected that tbe camp will
take on a new lease of life.

THE MARLIN RIFLE, Model i8gr, . calibre, is
th best rifle n.ade for the farmer, combining; the good
points of the old muzzle-loading squirrel rifle with the
convenience and rapid fire of the most Improved repeater.
It is so constructed that the same rifle uses the following
cartridges s .31 short and long rim fire, .3a short and long
center fire, and is the only repeater made using rim fire car
tridges larger than the .at calibre. The short cartridges
are just the thing for small game while the long ones kill
hogs and beef handily. On the first zooo cartridges used
you have saved the cost of a Marlin.
The Marlin Hand Book tor shooters explains why this is
so and tells how to care for, and how to use, fire arms. This
