THE COPPER ERA, CLIFTON, ARIZ., MARCH 15, 1900.
Startling Discovery
Last Monday morning, while Henry
Hill was tearing up the floor of one of
his old adobe buildings, on the east side,
on the site of the new barber shop, he
found a baking powder can against the
wall, under the floor, and,' upon open
ing it, discovered fifty dollars in green
backs and twenty dollars in boletos. Of
course, Mr. Hill being an honest son of
the Emerald Isle, made public the dis
covery, and stands ready to turn the can
and contents over to the owner upon
presentation of sufficient proof. A great
many people have occupied the room
during the past ten years, and, as there
is no means of determining just how
long the treasure has been hiddon, none
of the old timers have any idea who the
depositor could have been.
-A Rich Strike.
One of the most important strikes ever
made in this district was made last Sat
urday in the Shannon copper mine when
a regular mountain of sulphide of copper
ore, which assiys astonishingly, was
struck. Tuesday evening the miners had
penetrated the body to a depth of thirty
feet and the end was not in sight.. This
discovery will doubtless lead to the early
construction of a plant for the treatment
of the ore from the Shannon mine and
will be worth millions to this camp.
The fact of the strike was wired Mr.
Shannon at Deming whilu he and Mrs.
Shannon were on their way to Clifton
from Silver City.
Working Night and Day.

wonderful in building up the health. On
