Mining rainjis are replete with In teresting stories of prospectors who biivc struck It rich and of those who, after years of unsuccessful effort, find themselves "dend broke" in their old at;e because luck was against them. 'While everybody believes more or less In the existence of that some thing known us 'luck,'" said Jean Decker, formerly a resideut of the Black Hills and one of the pioneers of that region, "the prospector, who oimbs over mountains and trails along streams winding their devious way through tortunus gulches, tnoro thau anybody, Is a believer that Muck' shapes the destinies of all men. lie will tell you frankly that he believes in luck, and is always prepared with what be considers irrefutable argu ments In support of big belief. If ar guments fail to convince, he is ready to relate experience by the score, ex periences of Ills own and of others, to prove that 'luck' Is behind all success or failure, and that 'luck,' good or bad, is responsible for the success or failure of all undertaking. "L. F. Ililderbrand, a little wiry Frenchman who drives an express WMgon in Deadwood, is a firm believer in 'luck,' for the greater number of the many years that causo his curly beard and hair to be so liberally be sprinkled willi silver liavtf been spent in the mountains of the west. It is 'luck' that is responsible for the fact that he is no-v driving a dray instead uflmug a life of cac and enjoying the luxuries and comforts that the possession of unlimited means make possible. Had 'luck' not been against him he would now be 'Mr. Ililder brand' ami not 'Ililderbrand the dray man.' It was 'luck' that caused him, more than thirty year ago, to stum ble against a mountain side in Mon tana, and it was the same 'luck' that caused hiia to chip oil a piece from a hur;e' boulder he found there to tlnd that he bad 'struck it lich,' for the boulder nan quartz, and so rich in gold that it fairly made his eyes pop and his heart beat with a rapidity that threatened results to its outer covering. He soon got over his ex citement, and, with the prospector's instinct, began to look for the lead from which the boulder had sloughed otT. 'Luck' was still with biiu, for be traced the lead, and at once began U open it. lie had a partner and the two worked hard, for, although quartz miuiiig was then merely an experi ment in Montana, they knew tho time was coming when placer mining would end and quartz niiu'n ' would receire the attention of men anxious for a quick way of increasing their, wealth. "They were poor and their supply of grub was limited, but they knew there were plenty of men in the terri tory who would gladly stake them as soon as they learned of the richness of their find. So far all cf their 'luck' ad been of the quality described as good,' but a change was to come, and thatsoon. Tlmir 'luck' was destined to undergo a change. In an unfortu nate moment they undertook to roll out of the way the great boulder which had guided them to where fortune was awaiting them. Whether it was this or something else that caused their good 'luck' to change is not known, but Ililderbrand believes that the attempt to changa the location of the boulder offended the geni that fur jcarg bad guarded the hidden treas ures of the mountain, for the boulder rolltd over on to the arm of bis part ner and so badly crushed it that it be camo useless. Being without money they had to leave the place, Ililder brand going to French gulch to seek employment In the placer mines there while his partuer went to Helena to obtain surgical assistance. Years passed on and Ililderbrand began to think less of the 'find,' and wheu the stampede for Deadwood be gan ho was one of the first to Join the rush, and 'luck' of the good kind en abled him to locate a paying claim in that part of the city which was once known as Eli.abetlitown. After the claim bad b"tn worked out ho again drifted west and was one af the pio neer In the Coeur d'Alenc mountains" Bad 'luck' again became his compan Ion. and he drifted from one place to another, until finally he found him self once more In Montana, and one day he stood once more gaxlng ou the buuider of rich quartz on which be had feasted hi eyes yeans before. The buuider had the fain r appear ance of an old friend, but its surround ings had so changed that Ililderbrand was bewildered, "In place of the modest little tunnel he bad helped to dig overa quarter of a century before, he found u moiihter hoisting plant raising rich ore from a shaft hundreds of feet in depth, while in the gulch thundered and roared a monster damp mill. The boulderliad been removed, and it occupied a place ef honor in front of a splendid build ing. Surrounded by an Iron r.iillng, from which dangled signs cauLi-uiing trespassers to beware, the boulder stood an object of veneration and cu riosity, for it told to the world thnt it was the (denticle rock that had led to the discovery of the famous Drum Lunimon mine, one of the rtchet gold producers in the United Siutis. "Ililderbrand attempted to touch the bou'der, but a burly watchman or dered him olT. Finally eloquence pre vailed, and t he man whose .'luck' had been bis ruin was permitted to place his hand on the boulder and run bu fingers over t'uof.pot from '.vliicli hv had chipped oif a sample years beforu. ' Sometimes Hilderbrandtells t. hi story, outl always winds it up by lay ing his hands over his heart and look ing far away and saying: U.i, i reel so pinch here,' Indicating that portion of his anatomy ciivtred by Ins li-mcN, w'en I come back and see tie mill an.l de mine, and link of tie time w'en 1 tlnd de buuider and den . nk what might 'ave been if luck bad been v. id mo h'instead of de h'ole man Cruse.' ' S. II. ASIIENFELTER, ATTORNEY-AT-L AW, l4niu Koak, Bllv.r Avenue, Iteming, New Moxieft. The secrct.of a speedy cure in sick ness lies in selecting tho proper rem cdy and this is dillicult to do unless one is sure what the ailment is.

It is then always safu to take Simmons livcr regulator which keeps the liver well regulated and all poison expelled from the system.
