The great secret in successful root
culture is clean, mellow deep soil,
liberal fertilizing, early sowing and

Old Bill Miner, Stage Coach anc
Train Robber.
Has Left I Criminal Trail Over th«
West—Now Faces Long Term
in Prison for Georgia
Gainesville, Ga.—Far back In the
'60s drivers of stage coaches making
trips back and forth across the state
of California began to come in from
their lone-mountain journeys with
cash boxes rifled of their contents,
sometimes a horse shot, and in every
ease with the same story. A lonely
spot on the road, sometimes In the
daytime, sometimes at night, a single
highwayman and the magic words,
"Hands up!" The tale never varied.
For want of a better name the lone
highwayman came to be known, far
and wide, as "California Billy."
The exploits of "California Billy"
continued for several years. All ef
forts at his capture were in vain.
Many posses hunted the lone outlaw,
tempted by offers of generous re
wards. But he seemed to bear a
charmed life.
It was not until 1869 that he was
caught. The driver of a stage that
ran in from the hills back of Sacra
mento jumped from his seat in front
of the office early one morning in the
spring of that year and breathlessly
told how he had been held up but a
few hours before. The strong box of
the stage had been heavy with gold
dust sent in by miners. Never before
had "California Bill" dared to attack
& coach so close to a town.
In 20 minutes from the time the
driver told his story a heavily armed
posse was riding hard back over the
trail. It was not difficult to pick up
traces of the bandit. Before nightfall
his hunters were close upon him and.
as the sun #ault behind the hills they
surrounded Slim. The posse expected
Old Bill Miner.
a fight To their surprise the outlaw
offered no resistance, but surrendered
at their command. His trial was
speedy and less.than a week after his
capture he began serving a term in
San Quentln prison.
When Miner was released he left
California as rapidly as possible. The
wilder country of Colorado offered
greater attractions. In this new field
of operation his methods were the
same as in the old.
Miner and two others on November
7, 1881, reappeared in California after
an absence of twelve years, held up
the stage that ran from Sonora, Tuo
lumne county, to Milton and secured
$32,000 in cash and gold dust.
Two of the gang were quickly
caught Miner managed to elude the
officers for several weeks, but was
finally run to earth. The trial was
brief and justice severe. The three
robbers were sent to San Quentln pris
on for 25 years.
It was 1901, 20 years later, before
"Old Bill" Miner could again breathe
the air a free man. By good behavior
he cut his sentence five years and the
authorities believed that when he
walked out of San Quentln his days
as an outlaw were ended. But they
vi ere mistaken.
Toward the close of 1903 the author
ities of Oregon were startled by the
hold-up of an express train on the
Oregon Railway and Navigation com
pany's line at Mllepost No. 21, near
Corbett, Oregon. A year later the Ca
nadian Pacific's transcontinnetal ex
press was stopped at Mission Junc
tion, British Columbia, by a lone ban
dit, who with cold and deliberate
neive compelled the express messen
ger to open the safe, which contained
close to $10,000.
Less than two years later, ob May
10, 1906, at eleven o'clock in the night,
Miner and two pals robbed the trans
continental express of the Cauedlan
Pacific railway near Durrer, B. C.
For this crime he was sent for life
to the penitentiary at New Westmin
ster and at once began planning an
escape. With two companions, who
were confined in the brickyard of the
prison, he tunneled to freedom and
nothing more was heard of him until
last February, when one night a train
on the Southern railroad was held up
and the Pinkertons at once concluded
from the nature of the Job that Old
Bill Miner was at work again. They
were not mistaken and a few days
later Miner and two companions, bla
pals In the hold-up, were taken pris
oners. Miner, now sixty-nine yearr
old, will bo eighty-nine when his tenr

eczema. I also used*tliem on my five

very badly. When my children had
eczema, I was not worried at all, as
I knew the Cuticura Remedies would
do their work. They ha«J sores all
over their heads, their hair would fall
out, and they would scratch all night

thought their ears would drop oft. I
