OF MEXICAN NINES
BISBEE Ariz June 3 For three
hundred years according to reliable
records the Sierra Madre mountains
of Sonora and Chihuahua Mexico
have held the secret of a gold mine
of fabulous richness and a vast
treasure store of gold mined and
hidden away in an inaccessible
lei
The ronrance of the gold hrnter is
vriltcn in the historv of mans ef
forts through tfie centuries to reach
land bring back to civilization this
vealth of the Old Tyopa mines
ers and violence have marked many of
aese efforts and still in many hardy
breasts of this mining country today
there still stirs the spirit which has
prompted many to brave the dangers
pf starvation thirst and Tleath at ihe
lands of Indian bands and outlaws in
this search for gold
Records in Mexico
Mexico City contains records of the
rtd mine and several prospectors one
if them Jack Dunn accredited discov
erer of the Warren district have re-
orted seeing rums of the old mine
ut none ever reached there
According to records at the
sm capital in the latter part of the
eventeenth century the isolated vil
jgo of Old Tyopa was raided by In-
iians who destroyed the town and
lied all the inhabitants except a
briest

ceived and cared for by a Mexican
family His hardships caused his
death but before he died he gave to
the family a description and map of
the mining camp He also reported
that the gold obtained from seven
years of mining had been stored in an
old tunnel because of the impossibility
of shipment t6 civilization
The story and map it is said have
been handed down from family to
family for generations Those who
attempted to reach the camp losttheir
outfits and many did not return The
Indians for years menaced all pros
pectors and this condition still exists
augmented by bands of outlaws
Consul Has Map
Max Covite for several years Mex
ican consul at Naco is said to have
been the latest possessor of the
priests map He declared he twice
succeeded in getting as far as Casa
Blanca from which the ruins of Old
Tyopa are visible and it was reported
he had not given up hopes of reach
ing the place at his death several years
ago
Bert Grover a local man twice
started with two companions to make
the perilous journey but was forced
back because of insufficient equip
ment Indians and outlaws
Some remarkable gold specimens
have been brought back from the vi
cinity pf the Old Tyopa but so far as
known no one ever has reached the
mines since the old town was destroy
ed centuries ago

Mr Everbrokep I like the apart

rather too high
