claim in Tyson camp last Monday
night. The boxes had been running
for five days without a cleanup, and
as they are making about four ounces

put on a night-watch. Monday night of
about 11 o"clonk the night watch went
to the house to get a lunch. He did
not remain in ttie house to eat. but
made a sandwich and returned to duty.
As lie neared tlie sluices lie noticed
two men at the sluice txixes. He

brush and disappeared. They gut
nothing for their trouble.
