ANOTHER LOST BONANZA. Plenty of i:idence in Arizona to Show "W.iere Gold "Was Once Found. The legends of lost mines of fabulous wealth in Pima county are almost numberless, and it might be truth fully added, generally mythical. The old timers can tell of them by the hour, and a few persons have been shown glittering evidences in confirmation of the wonderful tales reluctantly recited with superstitious dread of the conse quences of their perfidy by almost su perannuated Indians and Mexicans. That the precious metals were mined on a gigantic scale in the dim past the many remaining evidences already dis covered fully verify, yet the investiga tion of those that chance has revealed has seldom proved financially success ful. Old arrastrea covered with the de cay of centuries, and crude smelting furnaces that have almost returned to the dusty destiny of all matter, speak of industries once in active operation that history and even aboriginal tradition fail to mention. Some of the traditions told sound like fairy tales, and one, however skeptical, cannot but become deeply interested in their recital. As a sample of the highly plausible, well authenticated and ex tremely seductive narratives, one re lated by Charles O. Brown, of this city, may be received with interest. "Speaking of old mines," said Mr. Brown, "I have spent a good deal of time and money in hunting up clows, and one mine was actually found, and I can go to it any time. Out in the Silver Bell country I can take you to a mountain so full of tunnels and shafts that, if they were in good condition, you could travel through all day long and not reach the end. "A number of old timers have visited it, and, judging from the vast work done there so long ago, they concluded that a great mine of some kind had ex isted there, which had likely been work ed out. Many times has it been located, and though its walls, roof and floor we: e carefully scanned and sampled, the re sult, while showing some gold, was dis couraging, assays showing from a tracf up to several dollars per ton. "Many years ago I talked with an old Papago Indian, with whom I was wn very friendly terms, having often ex tended him little favors, about the gold and silver mines. In a hurst of confi dence he told me that a great many years ago, when he was a very smali boy. the Indians at San Xavier del Buc made weekly trips to a very rich gold mine. Un Saturday night they returned with the products of their toil. The priest in chargo of the mission kept a small table in front of the altar, covered with a white cloth, upon which the pious toilers placed their metallic offer ings to the church. "This table was often covered with golden nuggets, varying in size from a pea to one's fist, and it was a rich sight. After the usual service the priest would descend, and as he picked up each precious piece he would proclaim the name of the donor and afterward would call them forward to receive the special blessing of heaven. On the following Monday they would again take up their march in a northwesterly direction for the mines, and for a very long time this was repeated, until the priests were driven out of the country, when they abandoned mining entirely. "The old Indian had one time gone with the miners, who followed a well beaten trail toward the Silver Bell coun try, and he saw them take out the gold. He agreed to show me the place, and out of curiosity I sent a man with him one day. They went out to the old mine I have spoken of in the Silver Bell country, and when they reached a cer tain gulch the Indian pointed to the tor, of the mountain and said he would find a shaft there, covered with cat claw bushes, out of which the most gold was taken. The man found everything just as the old Indian told him, but long dis use had filled up the shaft until it was nearly full. "On returning, the old Indian could not be found. He had gone ahead and was not met for several days. He then said he did not dare to show the mine tc the white people, and protested that he did not show it for fear the Great Spirit would take his life. Ho said the white man had found it, but he did not show it. "I visited the mine afterward, but the work necessary to clean out the shaft was too great and too expensive to undertake, and it has never been touched." Arizona Enterprise. True Courtesy. On one occasion Robert Browning's son had hired a room in a neighboring house, iii order to exhibit his pictures there, and during the temporary absence of the artist, Mr. Browning was doing the honors to a room full of fashionable friends. He was standing near the door when an unannounced visitor made her ap pearance, and of course he shook hands with her, greeting her as he had the other arrivals. "Oh, I beg your pardon." she exclaim ed, "but. please, sir, I'm the cook. Mr. Barrett asked me to come and see his pictures." "And I am very glad to see you." re turned Mr. Browning, with read courtesy. "Take my arm, and I will ihow you round." Temple Bar. A Chinese Girl's Fall. On Nov. 28, 1880, a schoolgirl named Ng A Soo fell from the roof of a foui storied house, a distance of sixty or sev enty feet. Her skull was fractured in several places and the right parietal em inence was deeply impressed. Enough to kill anybody, one would say, or at the best, to induce lifelong idiocy! Not a bit c f it : In exactly six weeks Ng A Soo left the hospital, "seemingly" says the clinical report, "in no way the worse for her fractured skull.'' London Hospital. Occasionally the English viper will attempt to engulf too large an animal, and Mr. Bell found one on Poole heath the skin of whose neck had thus been bursted in several places. Myth of Ancient Mariner. Sailors' yarns have always been cele brated for their imaginative character. : Those of today, however, have no oppor tunity for favorable comparison itn ho stories told by marine: - of ; . . .. The latter were able - ecu:,- ; , inexhaustible public cv& which they could p bly invt1 1 too monstrous or nnurnal 1 r ' :i Their tales presumably 1i i rnucli : r.ugment the fears of the sea which commonly entertained in those days, giving birth to many of the inyths of ocean. They told about the strange land inhabitated by lotos enters, who fed upon the fruit of forgetfulness and lost all memory of country and friends. Bey ond was the terrible land of the one eyed giants, called Cyclops, they said, while elsewhere were to le found the strange islands where the enchantresses Circe and Calypso lived. These islands were in the narrow western Mediterranean, and beyond was the Cimmerian land, where the people lived in darkness al ways, inhabiting gloomy caves. There were the Sirens also, whose song was death. They were condemned to die when a man should pass them with out stopping. Ulysses accomplished this by putting wax in his ears. So they were changed into rocks of Sorrento, where they still exist a terror to mari ners. The Sirens typify the surf, whose harmonious murmurs are often the death music of the sailor. In like manner the Cyclops represent the Storm Fiend, as their names show. Brontes is the roll, Steropes the flash and Argis the white ness of lightning. Likewise the snaky Gordons are thought to be figurative representations of the white capped and angry waves! Not less to be feared were the dreadfirl Symplegades huge moving rocks which were fabled to crush ships passing be tween them. It has been surmised that the tradition respecting these rocks was derived from the floating icebergs, which during the glacial period must have issued from the Black sea; but this seems hardly likely. Washington Star. The streets of Winston suffered badly from Saturday night's rain storm. It was a cloud burst, and it is generally conceded to have been the heaviest rain that has fallen there for several years. A side walk on one of their principal streets was washed away and a hole was left deep enough to bury an ordinary sized house. The cost of repairing the washout is es timated at at least $2,000. The contrac tor estimates the damage to the new fac tory for the American Tourcco company at $500. The machine shop of the Salem Iron Works was Hooded and the pro prietors say that they are damaged at least $1,000. Vance & Shaft'ner's iron foundry was also flooded with water to the depth of about two. All their moulds were covered and other machinery badly damaged. At Wilmington O., Gilbert Palmer, 21 years old, procured a horse and buggy at a livery stable Saturday evening, as he said, to go to Port William, about four miles north. He was last seen at the above named place in company with Mary Conklin, aged 10. Miss Conklin's mother strenuously objected to her asso dating with Palmer. This morning Palmer and Miss Conklin were discov ered on the roadside, both dead. They had taken the robe out of the bugsjy and spread it on the ground and placed the buggy cushion on it for a pillow. Near them were found two glasses and two papers that had contained strychnine. A note was found written on one of the labels reading : "Bury us as close to gether as possible. Good bye." From the Greensboro Record we learn that Mrs. Bettie Cannaday, Summer field, committed suicide Sunday morning by cutting her throat with a razor. She com mitted the deed about 9 o'clock in the morning, but lived until 5 o'clock in the afternoon. She had been an invalid for some time, suffering from a spinal affec tion, which reached the brain, unbalanc ing her mind. We learn she had fre quently threatened to take her life, and was closely watched ; but as usual in such cases, at the very time they were not ex pecting such a thing she committed the act. We have been unable to get any further particulars. Two neighbors in Rutherford, N. J., went to law about a rooster, w hich it was asserted one of them had maliciously killed. The rooster cost twenty-live cents. The case cost the two families $100. The need of a perfectly safe and reli able remedy for the peculiar diseases of summer is universal.
