HYSTERIOUS TABLET IS
DUO UP WITH SKELETONS Inscription Directs to Distant Thigh Bone Containing Written Parchment About Land ABERDEEN, S. D., Jan 2S.— Bent to prospect for gravel, A. W. Vail, a railroad employe at Mo bridge, unearthed two skeletons, "evidently those of a man and a voinan, al a depth of about two feet under the ground surface With the skeletons was a small stone tablet upon which was chiselled, in French, the words: "A hundred feet north and a hun dred feet west Of where thi' stone stood You will find some papers That w ill do you good.'' Bkeptical, Mr. Vail nevertheless searched the spot indicated and discovered an animal's thigh bono containing a ple< c of parchment upon which was written in the French language some sort of an article concerning a land grant in Alabama, The document is dated 1838 and signed by one "Pierre La- Mi ur." Mr. Vail is confident that tlie document is genuine and believes tho paper may bring a fortune eith er to himself or to some long miss 'lng heir of the mysterious "Pierre ;I.a Mour." and he will have the paper translated. DON'T CHARGE IT TO CHRISTIAN SCIENCE Editor Press: Tuesday night's issue of "the Press prints a news item under the caption. "Went Crazy Over Christian Science." in which the statement is made that Lloyd Montgomery, living at L'4e7 Dean avenue, went violently insane over the study of Christian Science. At the request of relatives of Mr. Montgomery, the writer makes the following state ment of facts in the case. Mr. Montgomery has never at any time been a Student of Chris tian Science, and never but once has he attended a Christian Science service. Some moi.ths ago a brother-in-law was healed in Chris tian Science of a serious physical ailment, and on account of this healing the subject was frequently discussed, Imt Mr. Montgomery was less Interested than others of the family. Within the past few weeks another member of the fam ily became acquainted with a na tive Hindoo, now living in Spokane, ami in this way became interested in occultism. Of late occultism has been frequently diseased in the family circle, but in neither of these subjects was Mr. Montgom ery nearly so much Interested as were other members of the family. Mr. Montgomery's relatives and friends do not attribute bis present condition to the study of Christian Sci< nee. They only know that at present he is mentally unbalanced. Und they do not charge this condi tion to any special cause. JOHN M. HENDERSON.

The public is hereby notified that the Mammoth Lode Mining and Milling Company of Spokane, Washington, has increased Its capital stock from One Million Five Hundred • Thousand (1,500,000) Shares, par value One ($1.00) Dollar per share, to Three Million (3,000,000) Shares, par value One ($1.00) Dollar per share, for the purpose of absorbing the Red Horse Mining Company of Harrison, Idaho, whose capital stock was One Million Five Hundred Thousand (1,500,000) Shares, par value One ($1.00) Dollar per share. This consolidation combines properties including thirty-three (33) mining claims, or about seven hundred (700) acres of the best copper, gold, silver and lead property in the Coeur d'Alene district or elsewhere. The property is all located about sixty (60) miles southeast of Spokane and seven and one-half (7MO miles east of Harrison, Idaho, in Kootenai ('ounty, the richest part of the Coeur d'Alenes. Railroad shipping facilities are two and one-half (2Va) miles distant and water shipping facilities immediately at hand. The latter connects the property with the O. B. & N. Railroad, the Northern Pacific Railway, the 0., M. & P. S. Railway, and the Inland Empire System. There is from Twenty ($20,000) Thousand Dollars to Thirty ($30,000) Thousand Dollars' worth of timber on the property, at the very lowest estimate. The samples of ore taken from the property assay from Twenty (S2O) Dollars per ton to Ninety-six (s!><!) Dollars per ton in silver, lead, gold and copper. Our gold and copper ore won the diploma and was awarded first prize at the 1004 Spokane Interstate Fair, therefore must be of excellent quality indeed. It is a smelting ore, as it carries all the necessary fluxing qualities. Sufficient buildings of all descriptions have been erected, including offices, blacksmith shop, tool bouse, mess and bunk houses, powder house, storehouses, barns, tunnel sheds, and a compressor and boiler etc., are now on the property, all of which is paid for. Over 1500 feet of tunnel work has been done, and additional machinery will be installed at once, placing the property on a shipping basis within 60 days at the latest. It will not be necessary for the Company to sell but a very few more shares of stock, therefore those wishing to invest in this most promising enterprise are advised to see the Secretary and Treasurer at the following address immediately. ; tending the birth of his child and 1 its death, one week ago.
