THE MYSTERY OF A MUMMY.
Starved to Death at the Bottom of a
Pit in the Woods.
A Sad Story Told by Nine Plain Marks
-An Almanac Of 1866- Clothing
Blown to Dust at a Breath--Nne
Days of Horror.
DETROIT, July 23.-One of the saddest
mysteries brought to light for years was
almost literally unearthed in Crowford
county, this State, a few days ago, and
in the most singular manner possible.
William H. French a Pittsburg dry goods
clerk, and Fairweather Martin of Chicago,
old schoolmates, were hunting and explor-
ing through that part of the State. On
the evening of the 7th inst. French shot
at a turkey which came near their camp.
The bird was wounded and could not fly
away, but half flew and half ran along
ed it over two hundred feet from
when he suddenly found him-
self down into the bowels
of the h. In the uncertain
light of the eve ig he had fallen into an
old shaft or pit, having a mouth only
three four feet across and almost concealed
by weeds and bushes, and being, as was
afterward ascertained by tape line meas-
urement, twenty-seven feet deep. When
French went down he bumped from side
S to side, and landed all in a heap at the
-i bottom, elbows skinned, knees battered
and the re,tof his -body pretty well
shakenup. The bottom of the pit was
much larger than the mouth, being almost
ten feet from side to side. It had been
dug out, as if men had sunk a shaft down
that fat and then started to dig drifts.
The soil was very hard, and in some
places the shaft had been cut through
It may be imagined that the clerk was
not long in raising the alarm, but the
depth of the pit so muzzled his vice that
his companion searched long to find him.
While this hunt was going on French dis-
covere4 that he had company down there.
It was so dark that he could see nothing,
and he was prevented from knrowing the
size of the pit. After finding that he had
no broken bones, he felt about him a lit-
tle and laid his hand on what he knew to
be a human skeleton, and a musty odor
at once filled his nostrils. His yells for
assistance were no doubt considerably in-
creased by this discovery, and when as-
sisted out of the pit by means of the stout
line carried with the camp equipage he
was in no mood for joking. It was de-
cided to make an examination of the
place by daylight, and when morning
came Martin was lowered down the shaft. -
The bushes were cut away around the
the mouth to give him light, and enough
of it filtered down to enable him to see
There was a body there, sure enough.
The figure of a man sat with his back to
the wall, one knee drawn up and the other
leg extended. The hands rested on the
round on either side, and the head had
flen over on the left shoulder. It was
not a skeleton but a mummy. Most of
the hair had fallen of the skull, and the
clothing had mouldered until a breath
would blow it to dust. There was a boot
on the right foot only, the other one lying
on the ground some distance away. The
soles could be torn off as easily as one
tears a blotting pad. The flesh on the
body and limbs had greatly decayed,
leaving knees elbows and other joints en-
tirely bare, but where any flesh remained
it had entirely shrivelled down and turned
the color of sheet iron. On the ground
was a small heap of dust which bad
once been a hat. Against the wall, with-
in reach of the mummy, was a bundle of
While Martin was making these dis-
coveries below, French was scouting
around the mouth of the shaft. Lying
almost at the edge of it were the rusty
barrel of rifle and the head of a- light
axe. The stock had rotted from the gun,
and the handle had decayed from the axe,
while the metal itself was nearly eaten
with rust. When the unfortunate hunter
,,--or explorer fell into the pit, as he doubtless
Sdid, he might have been carrying these
articles in his hands, or the sudden
Sstumble might have dislodged them from
his pack, or he might have hung to the
buses at the edge of the pit fora few
seconds before falling, and sought to lighten
Feeling quite certain that a clue to the
mystery would be found in the pack or
about the skeleton, Martin proceeded
very carefully in his search. The clothing
over the bundle of bones fell to pieces as
-ls handled There was a large Rus-
., -ila-rlmlL ig between the
7 shrive eftarms~ thebare ribs, and
this was so far gone that it required the
most delicate handling. Some portions of
it were lost before it reached sunlight
above, and the odor from it was almost
suffocating. In the mass of dust and
bones MArtin made a sti more important
discovery. He found a memorandum
book, having an almanac in it and the
days of the week printed on alternate
pages. The book was well bound, and,
owing to its thickness, had stood the
ravages of time much better than even the
thick-soled boots. The almanac was for
the year 1866, and must be taken as proof
that the stranger fell into the pit in that
year. He could not, of course, have an
almanac later than the year in which he
lived, and would not be likely to carry
one over a year old at the most. Many
of the leaves fell out and crumbled away,
and portions of many colors were lost, but
enough were left, and enough of the
writing could be made out, to form one of
the saddest chapters of history of the
wild forests of Michigan. Written with
hfk were the following words, found here
and there through the book. ...
"thence west:" "shipment acre
tract-" "Government;" "trade for a
--; "shall have for-." "Thence by
lake to- ." "Grand Haven is for-;
"John M. A.-- ;" "demand for about
-- "No. 456 South C- ."
The above parts of sentences were
gleaned from perhaps the first twenty
leaves of the book. The rest seemed to
have been filled by writing in pencil, and
in oneor two instances with red a'J pencil.
Words could be made out now and then,
but the only complete sentence found
reads: "Southwest corner marked by
'X' on lone pine tree standing on knoll;
stone pile at foot of tree."
The unfortunate man had written hel
name on the inside of the first cover ot
th book. The presence of. a name could
be faintly seen, but not even a single let-
ter could certainly made out. Martin
thought the first name looked like Wil-
liam," while French feels quite sure that
it was "Charles." There was evidently
an initial, standing for a middle name,
and the last name was short enough for

Reached General Gibbon at 10 A. M.
to-day. He assailed the Indians at
daylight of the 9th, inflicting great loss
upon them. His own casualties were 7
officers, 50 men and 10 citizens.
General Gibbon is wounded, but not
seriously. Supplies were not cut off as
reported. Gibbon's command is in the

"Wood," "Gregg," or "Brown." As
near as they could make out, there were
not over six letters in the name.
The bundle was lifted out with all pos-
sible care, and in it was found two pairs
of woolen socks, two woolen shirts, a
vest, the blade of a razor, buttons, and
bits of paper which resembled small por-
tions of greenbacks. Not one of the
articles of clothing was much more than
dust, and the slightest breath tore them
to pieces. No book, card, or anything
to furnish a clue was found in the bundle,
nor in the boots, nor about the pile lof
blackened bones. The skeleton was lifted
out of its long resting place in hopes that
a knife or a tobacco box might be found,
but the search was vain. After half a
day's hunt for a clue, the young men
made another discovery-the bones of
the skeletons left leg were broken. That
was the first discovery. From the bottom
of the pit, for ten feet up, except in one
place, the sides were full of grit and rock;
in this one place which was a stratum of
red clay, the poor man had cut niches
abbut a foot apart, evidently hoping to
reach the mouth of the pit by that means.
He had cut niches to within thirteen feet
of the surface, and in an evil moment
had lost his balance, fallen to the bottom,
and rendered all hopes vain by breaking
his leg. He could do nothing then but
wait for death. He might have had a
small supply of food-perhaps enough to
last four or five days. Near where the
skeleton was found were nine marks on
the wall, each one standing for a figure
"1." He had made them to stand for
days. He could tell when day ended and
night came, and, suffering terrible mental
and bodily pain, he had made a mark to
indicate the passage of time, and hoped
for release in some way before he should
be called upon to make another. Worn
out at last, he had braced his back against
the wall and died.
WRECKED IN PORT.
A Tale of the lHyprborean Vanilla
[From the Burlington (Iowa) Hawkeye.]
It was wild midnight.
The tame midnight was off watch and
had gone to bed three hours before.
A storm brooded over the eastern
heavens. It was a thoroughbred brood
storm. Hop brewed, for it was coming
from the yeast.
Hawkeye creek was rolling tumult-
ously in its sandy bed. Bugs, probably.
Or it might have been nervousness.
A little form cowered at the garden
gate. Many a manly form has been
coward at just such gates, ever since
Summer nights and gnats and beauty
and love and June bugs were invented.
"He does not come," she murmured
softly, as she peered into the darkness.
"I cannot see him. I will call him."
She was wrong. If she couldn't
see him she certainly couldn't
call him with the same hand.
A manly step came scraping down the
sidewalk. It was Desmond.
She threw open the gate and the
next instant he clasped in his great,
strong arms twenty-seven yards of
foulard, three yards of rushing, ten
dozen Breton buttons and a pompadour
panier as big as a dog-house. It was
all his own.
"All is lost," he exclaimed. "Con-
stance de Belvidere, the Russians have
crossed the Balkans. We must fly."
Constance was a noble girl. She
only said, 'Whither shall we fly."
He wanted to fly to some lone desert
isle, but she submitted an amendment
providing that they should fly to the
In the crowded saloon, where the soft
light fell upon fair women and brave
men, and the insects of a Summer night
fell in the ice-cream freezer. They
spoke no word.

eggs and skim-milk, language is a

silence. He said :

Gloom sat enthroned upon his brow.
Constance saw it. She said:
What is it, dearest ?"
He spoke not, but sighed.
A dread suspicion stabbed her heart
like a knife.
"Desmond," she said, you are not
tired of me, darling ?"
"By heaven, no," he said, and then
he looked (and thought) unutterable
"I see," she said, tapping the empty
plate with her spoon. "Too cold.

He denied it bitterly, and bade her re-
main where she was while he settled with
She, guided by the unerring instinct
of her sex, peeped through the
curtains of the saloon. She saw her
Desmond holding earnest discussion
with the man. She saw the man shake
his head resolutely in answer to Des-
mond's pleading looks and gestures.
She saw him lock the door, take out the
key, put it in his pocket, lean up against
the door. She saw her own Desmand
draw from his own pockets and pile up-
on the counter a pearl-handle pocket
knife, six nickles, four green postage
stamps, a watch key, two lead pencils, a
memorandum book, a theater ticket (of
the Variety denomination), a pocket
comb, an ivory toothpick, a shirt stud,,
a sleeve button, a photograph of herself,
a package of trix, two street car checks,
a card with a funny (wicked) story on it,
a silk handkerchief, and a pair of gloves.
And then she knew that Desmond was a
bankrupt, and when the man swept the
assets of the concern into a drawer and
opened the door, she sobbed convul-
sively, "And it was mine extravagance
which hath did this thing."
They did not talk much on their way
home. Once she asked him if he was
rich, and hs only said :
Such is life.

THE NEW WOIRKINGMAN'S PARTY.
Meetings wert held last Saturday in
Philadelphia and Cincinnati by work-
ingmen for the purpose of forming a
new political party. In the former
city an organization was effected and
resolutions passed. The speeches were
of a conservative character and the
resolutions contained some wholesome
truths along with considerable rubbish,
which is to be expected when men try
their hands at framing a political plat-
form for the first time. It is doubt-
ful, however, whether there is more
clap-trap in it than can generally be
found in the cut-and-dried platforms
of political parties. They are evidently
in earnest, and call upon the working
people generally to join with them in
a combined effort to secure the triumph
of their principles. They demand rep-
resentation in municipal governments,
State Legislatures and Congress. With
this sentiment we cordially agree; but
.is it not the fault of the workingmen
themselves that they are not at present
properly represented? They are nu-
merically stronger than either the cap-
italists or vagabonds in the country
and can always outvote them. If they
were' as true to themselves in
politics as in the ordinary pur-
---_suits of life there would be no
necessity for the formation of a
new party. A judicious selection from
the candidates presented by nominating
conventions would generally result in
good representation; but like every-
body else, when the time comes for
action, they are led away by prejudice,
enthusiasm or the trickery of dema.
gogues. Whether the move so favor-
ably begun in Philadelphia will prove
to be more than a flash in the pan, the
next elections in Pennsylvania will
show. They could not have selected a
more favorable field for their first expe-
riment. Both the municipal and State
governments in Pennsylvania have been
for years the rottenest on the continent.
Cameron and Scott have ruled the roast
in Harrisburg, and Kemble and his
clique have had things pretty much
theiy'own way in Philadelphia. Hon-
es, capacity and judgment in the
----- Legislature of Pennsylvania would be a
genuine novelty and a pleasant har-
binger of reform all over the country.
In Ohio the Workingmen's party has
nominated a full State ticket. They
have utterly repudiated both the Re-
publican and Democratic parties and
Hayes's administration. We are afraid
they have not recovered from the ex-
citement begotten of the recent strike.
While they may disapprove of the
measures and men of both parties, there
was no necessity for such sweeping de- i
nunciation. It is always the policy of
political parties to make friends rather
thanenemies. Withoutpopular strength
their success is impossible, and we may
expect a movement begun in such bit- f
terness to lose its vitality, as the pas- r
The conservative tone which charac-
terized the meeting in Philadelphia does
honor to the intelligence of the men
who controlled it, and is far more like-
ly to effect valuable results.
MAKING FALSE REPORTS.
Not long ago the committee of the Lon-
don Exchange detected a broker in 3
rt ing his sales and purchases falsely. b
was in the habit of shaving a little on
C eighth or a quarter above what he ac-
: tally paid, and his sales at a correspond-
ing distance below the market. He was
summarily expelled. If a similar case
occurred here and was discovered, the I
offender would meet with scant mercy.
We do not think that the practice is a e
common one. It is, to put it on the low- v
est ground, a risky thing to attempt.
There are so many checks and entries to r
be made that sooner or later the fraud b
would come to light. And, whatever T
may be the faults of the stock-dealing d
community, this of peculation is not one. 0
Sharp practice is too frequent, but it does a
It does sometimes. We have per- L
sonal knowledge of the fact that a mem- S
ber in good standing of the San Fran- P
cisco Stock and Exchange Board sold d
for a client 100 shares of a certain t
stock at $2 75 per share, and reported e
the sale at $2 50. The client hap- C
opened to be present in the Board-room L
(unknown to the broker) when the sale t:
was made-the only sale of that stock n
which was made that afternoon by the -
Sold that stock -foryou,' remarked a
the broker, in a crisp, business-like
way, as he walked into his office after sl
the Board-"got $2 50 a share for it."
"' You got $2 75 for it, sir," replied p
h lient, looking his man squarely in k
The broker reddened up, fumbled in a
his breast-pocket nervously, and pulled c
out his memorandum book, which he c
pretended to scan very carefully; then, v
yth a painful effort to laugh, he said:

The Darien Canal. V
To-day's news from Washington, if t
true, is of the utmost importance to m
the Pacific slope. In regard to the iI
project of an inter-oceanic canal, via in
Nicaragua, it is announced that a plan P
has been matured, the estimated cost o
of which will be $80,000,000, and that
Congress will not be called on for any to
part of the amount. The surveys are
completed and books will be opened for ri
subscriptions immediately. The canal i
can be built in five years. The sum tl
mentioned as the cost of this great en. m(
terprise appears large, but when it is
considered that European capitalists c
have of late seriously contemplated in-
vesting their surplus funds in such. a h
chimerical project as a tunnel under C
the straits of Dover, it is not unreason- t]
able to suppose that they would gladly e
'~vail themselves of tha Darien Canal b
4i a paying investment. 'There is some-.
S thing tangible about it, It is perfectly N
feasible. It will revolutionize a great
part of tlh carrying trade of the world
and to the inhabitants of the Pacific
slope it will be simply invaluable. The
back-bone of the trans-continental rail-
road monopolies would be broken.
They would be compelled to transport
freights at reasonable rates or their
railroad tracks would be grown over
with grass. To the western coast of
South America such a canal would give
new energy. Enterprises which have
long languished for want of easy and
rapid communication would be invested
with new life and vigor. Indeed it is
impossible to over-estimate the advan-
tages which would result to the Ameri-
can continent by the union of the At-
lantic and Pacific oceans.
A CAREFUL perusal of the bad poetry
in our exchanges from all quarters re-
moves the slight shade of doubt that
had arisen on the orthodox belief in the
propriety of a material hell, and as-
sures one that Bob Ingersoll is an im-
postor and a betrayer of the fondest
hopes of the people.
THE Carsonites estimate that every
picnic which goes down there from this
city leaves from $3,000 to $5,000. It
is not a dead loss to Virginia, however,
for when the Carsonite comes tip here
to play poker the money reverts to its

A SHOT AT A WHISKY-BUMMER.
The neighborhood of Third and Fol-
som streets was thrown into a state
of excitement night before last by a
succession of blood-curdling yells of
murder. A man ran like a jackass
rabbit down Third, bellowing that he
was shot. He brought up against a
policeman and wildly explained that a
saloon keeper hnd shot him through the
head because he hadn't paid for his
drink, and pointed for corroboration to
the fact that he was bleeding dread-
fully. The policeman led the man back
to the saloon, where the saloon keeper
affably made things clear. He had
been much annoyed by bummers lately,
and had determined to teach one of
them a lesson, anyhow, and when the
one in question entered and got his
drink, the barkeeper pulled a syringe
in the similitude of a horse-pistol, and
let loose a quart of stale claret full in
the face of the sponger. That thirsty
being took it for granted that he had
been shot, and disturbed the neighbor-
hood as related.
A whale of the fin-back species, 80
feet long, was captured two days ago,

carcass will be hoisted well out of water

MONTANA TERRITORY, August 13.- t
A courier from General Gibbon arrived s
at Deer Lodge, Montana, at 3:30 P. M.
yesterday with dates to the 11th. Gib- l
bon's supply train and camp was not t
captured as first reported. There was c
to fighting after the first day's battle, (
'n the 9th. Gibbon's losses are : f
Killed-Captain Logan, Lieutenants t
Bradley and Bostwick and seventeen t
listed men and five citizens. The T
rounded are General Gibbon, Captain ir
Williams, Lieutenants Coolidge, Wood- s
uff and English, the latter seriously, P
besides thirty-six men and four citizens. n
The Indians suffered severely, as forty n
lead Indians were counted on about v
ine-half the battle-field. Howard had n
arrived and would pursue the Indians ?
*s soon as his command arrived. Gen- i
ral Gibbons would move to Deer t
lodge and take his wounded to Fort P
haw as soon as medical aid and trans- s
?ortation arrived. The Indians had w
disappeared, in which direction it is c
.ot yet learned. The following addi- t
ional names of the killed in the Sev- d
nth Infantry have been received: 1

IeCaffrey and Private Birtz. Company t.
i--Sergeant Edgeworth, Sergeant Mar- It
in, Corporal Sayles, Corporal O'Con- P
or and Private O'Brien. Company K t

A dispatch from General Gibbons is
s follows : *-
My loss in the battle of the 9th was
even officers and-fifty-three men killed b
nd wounded. I am satisfied the In- n
ians suffered much more, for the sur- o
rise was complete and many were u
illed in the tepees or running out. ti
'orty dead Indians were counted on ti
bout one-half the battle-field. How- a
rd has just arrived, and I believe he n
an catch them again as soon as the n
avalry arrives and I can get the ser- b
ices of a doctor. I propose to move
o Deer Lodge and take most of our
rounded to Shaw. They are all doing

ieved probable, and it is also thought
hat the government established by the
oup d'etat would not be recognized by
Germany. Notwithstanding that pro-
ound peace prevails throughout France,
he ultraconservative papers are urging
he government to declare martial law.
There is a report current that the Cab-
net have already resolved upon this
tep. It is believed the immediate
proclamation of martial law is rendered
necessary by the license of radical I
newspapers, which dare to talk of civil
war unless their candidates obtain a t
majority at the approaching elections. t
lonsigneur Dupanloup's newspaper,
a defense, says it is natural to suppose
hat the government may be com.
yelled to meet, by a state of
iege, the fierce and unconstitutional 1
tar the radicals wage against it. The
constitution is formally attacked, and
he government would be wrong if it
id not seek the means to defend itself.

The Richmond being a London incor-
poration, but little is known of its
affairs in this country. We presume
there but few people in this country
who know the number of shares in the
company. The following facts will
therefore be interesting: The total
number of shares is 54,000, of the par
value of $25 each. The company has
paid in dividends about $17 per share.
The stock at last accounts was selling
in the London marketat an average of
$31 25. This would give the property
a total value of $1,687,500. Eureka
Consolidated closed yesterday in the
San Francisco market at $35 per share.
There are 50,000 shares in the company.
At yesterday's quotations the whole
property is worth $1,750,000, or $62.-
000 more than the Richmond. It will
be seen from the foregoing figures that
the value of these great mines does not
differ materially on either side of the

WHAT A NARROW.cGAUGE ROAD
khe Nevada and Colfax Road, 23 3.10
Miles, Built and Stocked for $411,000.
Over in Nevada county there is a
aarrow.gauge railroad just about the
ame length as the proposed direct road
betweenn Reno and Virginia, and the
;rade over that road is about such as
vould be encountered on the new road.
L'hinking that the figures of the Nevada
county road are about what this road
rill cost, we give them. That road is
:3 3-10 miles long and has one mile of
hiding. The roadway cost $194,747; .
superstructure, $146,785 56; equipment,
51,100; buildings, $18,500. Total, 1
;411,132 56. The equipment consists
.f two locomotives, three passenger t
coaches, two baggage, express and mail
!ars, fifteen box cars, fifteen flat cars
und three hand cars. There are four
ir five bridges, two of them large ones, i
nud two tunnels on that road, and in
tne or two places the roadbed runs
through very hard blasting rock. We
think this will furnish us almost reli-
able data upon which to base our calcu-
atiols. The commonly accepted cost 1
s half a million, but if there are no
difficulties encountered more than now t
supposed we believe the direct road
rom Reno to Virginia will not cost
nuch over $400,000. Of course the I
rolling stock would have to be consider-
bly more than that employed on the i
oad between Colfax and Nevada City,
nd this might take the remainder of
lhe half million. These figures are cer- 1
mainly small enough to insure the build-
ng of that road by the citizens of the
three towns most interested.- Reno

Hopeful Talk About the Nicaragua
WASHINGTON, August 13.-O'Sulli-

interested in the proposed Inter-ocean
Nicaragua Canal, was at the State De-
partment on Saturday on diplomatic
business connected with that enter-
prise. He says the work will cost
$80,000,000 and can be completed in
five years. No appropriation will be
asked of Congress, but subscriptions
will be opened to all parts of the world.
He speaks confidently of the success of
the work, the surveys for which have
already been made by the United
WASHINGTON, August 13. Acting
Secretary McCormick Saturday issued
a circular to the employes of the Treas-
ury Department, stating that the credit
of the country required its duties to be
performed by honorable men ; that the
Secretary would not be annoyed by
creditors seeking their just dues from
clerks ; that it was expected that all
just debts would be paid, and that if
clerks refuse to pay their just debts
they would be charged with fraudulent
practices and recommended for dis-
missal by the chiefs of their respective
Efforts of the Navy Department to Be-
lieve the Workingmen.
WASHINGTON, August 13th.-Since

given employment to 3,400 men at the
navy-yards throughout the country.
The appropriations for the department,
although smaller than usual, have been
distributed to give employment to as
many as possible, it being the object of
the Secretary to relieve the wants of
those deserving employment to the full
extent of his power.
liotous Doings in the Coal Regions.
SCRANTON(Pa.), August 13.-On Sat-

into the wildest excitement. About
250 miners compelled the pump-men to
abandon their posts. The fires were

A crowd also visited the yard of the
Delaware and Hudson Canal Company
and detained a train loaded with coal
cars. The Erie Colliery was visited and

An attempt was made to-day to wreck

Ilispronouncing Geographical Names.
In America recently, that is in the
United States, the custom has come up
of pronouncing them rigidly according
;o their spelling. Thus we have not only
"War-wick," and "Wor-ces-ter," in-
stead of "War-'ick" and "Wooster;"
but the Shawngunk mountains which
.n our youth, were the "Shongo"
mountains, are now "Sha-wan-gunk,"
with the r and k thrust into our ears;
and poor Lake Winnipissiogee, instead
of its old name "Winipisauki," has
every syllable given it that can be ex-
torted from its letters by a school-
ma'am. Delhi, a name absurdly given
to a town in Alleghany county, is called
"Dell-high," when its real name is as
nearly as possible "daily." Still fur-
other West, Terre Haute is called "Terry
Hut," an amazing conformity to the
spelling-book. If an uneducated man
were to write its real name phono-
graphically "Tare Hoht," he would not
be so ridiculous as those who find its
name not in a word but in an assem-
blage of printed signs. In the city of
New York there has been of late years
arenmrkable change of names effected
by islrule of spelling-book. "What,"
to me an old gentleman, a member
of a highly respected old New York
family, "What do these people mean
by Dez-bros-sz street! There's no such
street. The name is 'De Broose.'" He
;hen informed me that the street was
lamed after a family whose name was
spelled "Desbrosses" but pronounced
De Broose, and that until it appeared
on the street cars it was always so pro-
nounced. This solicitude to conform
sound to letter has become a disease
amongst us. It exists in no other
country ; and here it is due to the
school-master, the spelling-book and
the dictionary.-N. Y. Times.

The American People.
No people in the world suffer as much
with Dyspepsia as Americans. Although years
of experience in medicine has failed to ac.om-
plish a certain and sure remedy for this disease
and its effects, such as Sour Stomach, Heart-
burn, Water-brash, Sick Headache, Costiveness,
Palpitation of the Heart, Liver Complaint,
coming up of food, low spirits, general debility,
etc., yet since the introduction of GREES'S
AcUusT FLowER, we believe there is no case of
Dyspepsia that cannot be immediately relieved.

THE LADIES' RACES.
One of the most enjoyable ieathres
of the Caledonian Pienit last Saturday
was the ladies' fa't, in which about
twenty-five or thirty contestants en
gaged, the struggle was the most hotly
contested and exciting of the d1y.
There should be more of these ladies
races at picnics, although, for pruden-
tial reasons, the judges should be
masked and otherwise disguised, and
their names should forever remain a se-
cret as impervious as that of the Iron
The old ladies' tade was also hotly
contested, the prize being carried off
Mrs lMcCarter, a lady nearly, if not
fully, six feet in hight, who was evi-
dently not of the delicate order of fe-
males, as she ran in her stockings. As
she reached the winning-post she ut-
tered a cry whiCh was partly a cheer
and partly a yell, and jumped in the
air fully two feet from the ground.
SHOOTING FOR THE MEDAL.
It had been advertised for a month
that the shooting match for the gold
medal, between teams of twenty from
each military company in Storey and
Ormaby counties, should be governed
by the Creedmoor rules, but when the
teams arrived on the grounds the Sars-
fields and Washingtons objected to
shooting under Creedmoor rules, and
threatened to withdraw. Captain Lord,
who acted as referee, vainly en-
deavored to induce them to abide
by the advertised cartel. Failing to
do so he refused to act. The main ob-
jection of the Washingtons and Sars-
fields was as to the time allowed be-
tween each shot. Under the Creed-
moor rules when a man's name is called
he must respond immediately and
shoot, otherwise he loses his shot; and
but one minute and a half is allowed
between each shot. This rule was not
followed last Saturday, each man pracc
tically shooting at will, with little or'
no reference to the'time which elapsed
between each shot.
The teams, as a rule, did not represent
the full strength of the companies, some
of the best shots of each being absent.
For instance, H. C. Smith, of the Na-
tionals, is reckoned one of the very
best shots in the Pacific States. He
won the California powder cup three
times in succession, and also won the
all-comers' prize-a silver cup-in San
Francisco last Spring, by a score of 24
out of a possible 25. Had he partici-
pated the score might have been bet-
tered a few points. The Emmets also
think that if Superintendent Jackson,
of the North Con. Virginia, and shift-
boss Hanks, of the Savage, had been in
the team their record would have been
much better, as Mr. Jackson is reck-
oned good for 20 sure, and Hanks for
about the same. Taken altogether,
however, the scores of the National and
Emmets were very creditable, there
being a difference of only six points be-
tween the two. Following is the score:

A NEW -STYLE OF ORE FURNACES
f S ichng that lMay Interest the Miner
S of Eastern Nevada.
SAcorrespondent of the VENIo ChijN
rICa, writing froiti iew ork August 3d
Last week I visited some new furnaces
erected for the purpose of desulphurizing
Sand roasting ores, which inay be of in
Sterest in your section of the country, as :
understand your ir'oilation is large ii
What may be termed the mining region
This is a simple process for extracting thi
sulphur and at the same time reducing
the ore to a state of rottenness, so that ii
may be easily ground into powder, where
there is no trouble to extract the mineral
When I visited the furnace it had beer
in operation something over a week, ant
after the first few hours no fuel of any
kind had been added, and still it was
Roasting at the rate of four tons every
twenty-four hours. There were ten fur
naces, but to all appearances I should
have Supposed that there was but one,
and each of these, be it understood, would
easily run through Ifour tons a day. I
made a minute inquiry, and found the
cost of erecting the ten did not exceed
8500, and the cost of operating was three
men's labor. This same person erected
twenty furnaces for a nickle mining corm
pany in this State six years ago, and the
fire has never been out unless extinguished
for repairs. He is now in the State of
Virginia, where he has a contract to erect
twenty for a large mining company, after
a full examination on their part of those
in operation here. It might be well for
your miners to investigate this, and
especially if you are troubled with sul-
phite to any great extent. I casually
mentioned these furnaces when on a
visit to the assay office in this city, and
the officers there are of the opinion that a
revolution in roasting will be the result if
generally introduced. The inventor is an
old English workman, who has spent
thirty five years in erecting fur-
naces for making vitriol, acids, sulphur,
etc., and whose experience has brought
about this happy result. I may take oc-
casion to speak of these more fully at
some future date, if an opportunity
presents for further examination. If you
should want to hear more on the subject
meanwhile, you have my address, and
have but to request and I will place you
n position to gain every point desired.
A Fire In the Washoe Hills. /
A bre broke out yesterday in the
vicinity of Mackay and Fair's wood
camp. The glare of the fire could be
seen in Reno long before night, through
the dense smoke. A high wind was
prevailing, and the fire appeared to be
spreading rapidly. It is a little north-
west of where the great fire occurred
thirteen months ago. A dispatch from
Mackay and Fair's agent at Huffaker's,
received this morning, says : "Can
see the smoke, but cannot possibly
locate it on the ranch."

Why Suffer Dyspeptic Tortures,
WHEN the famous regulator of en-
feebled, acid or bilious stomachs, Hostetter's
Bitters, will cure you? Could you read the tes-
timony of the myriads of dyspeptics whom it
has cured, though you might be of a skeptical
turn, you would be convinced. Evidence of its
efficacy is constantly multiplying, and this re-
lates not only to cases of dyspepsia, but also
liver complaint, constipation, urinary and
uterine troubles and malarial disorders. The
success which has attended the great stomachic
has incited unscrupulous parties to manufac-
ture cheap imitations of it, which they attempt
to palm off as the genuine article. But, so fa-
miliar is the public with the real elixir, that
these nefarious attempts are rarely successful.
Neither imitation or competition affect the
popularity of the standard article. auO Iw

Feet the past week. It is still being
Srun adjoining the ore in the east wall
Sof the vein. The heat is very great.
We have constructed a box near the
face of this drift, 5x7 feet, which we
cool by compressed air, in which one
set of men cool while the others are at
work. At the C. and C. shaft the west
drift on the 1750 level has been ex-
tended 4i feet fo the past week; Total
length, 473 feet. The face is in hard
rock, which blasts. Two days ago we
forked this drift; one branch runs di-
rect to the double winze, and the north
branch direct to No. 3 winze in the
Poor progress was made in sinking the
main shaft. The flow of water is heavy
and the rock very hard. The cap for
the station of the 1850 level will be in
place to-day. The air in nearly all
tarts of the mine is good. Yours, re-
Ipectfully, JAs. G. FAIR, Sup't.
C. P. Gordon, Esq., Secretary Cali-
fornia Mining Company-Dear Sir : On
the 1500 level the ore breasts are with-
out material change. Much work is
being done enlarging and retimbering
the north lateral drift and crosscuts
Nos. 2 and 4. These drifts are settling
badly by reason of the extensive open-
ings on the level below.
On the 1550 level the new north
drift to winze No. 3 from the main
shaft has been extended from the south
end 32 feet and from the north end 38
feet. Sixty-six feet yet remain to be
run before connection, which will be
made the coming week. No ore has
been hoisted from this level the past
week, owing to the repairs upon the
main shaft. It will yet require an-
other week to complete this work.
Our supply of ore is more than ample
from other sources.
On the 1600 level all of the ore stopes
are looking exceedingly favorable. The
sill floor is being extended south from "
crosscut No. 5 as rapidly as possible.
The ore body continues of great width
and is very rich. The drift north from
the bottom of winze No. 6 (100 feet i
below this level) is now in 82 feet. The
south drift from the same level, being
run to connect with winze No. 5, is
now in 14 feet. Winze No. 5 is now
below the 1600 level 140 feet. This
winze will be continued to the 1840
On the 1650 level the north drift is
now 68 feet north from winze No. 4. P
This drift has been turned easterly to t
connect with winze No. 5. We are
enlarging the chamber and erecting the
sill floor preparatory to sinking winze
No. 3 below this level. The repairs on t
the double winze on our northern
boundary will be completed the coming
The south drift on the 1840 level has I
been extended 22 feet the past week I
and is without change.

DEAn SIR: There is nothing to report C
this week except the good progress E
made at all points. Work has been
resumed in crosscut No. 1, 1700 level,
and from all appearances the water has c
de reased sufficiently to' enable us to t
make good headway. No. 2, on the
same level, is in 400 feet, the face in
hard porphyry. We were compelled i
to stop this drift, as air for botlh No. 1
and No. 2 could not be furnished. The f
south drift, 1900 level, made 40 feet,
and is now in 182 feet from the winze.
EThere is no change in the ground, but
the drift lengthens the heat increases,
that we cannot expect to make quite
fch good progress hereafter. The main r
pcline was sunk 15feet and is now down
1l0 feet below the 1700 level. Work
n the Savage joint wine will be corn- t
menced to-morrow morning, under J
Gould and Curry management, Savage m
paying one half the expenses. It is i
much more convenient for us to sink
this winze, and the Superintendent of
the Savage agrees with me that it is I
better for both mines., The new set of a
boilers for the pumping-engine will be t
fired up sometime during the week.
Everything is running well. Yonrs a

William Willis, Esq., Secretary--
Dear Sir : Crosscut No. 3, 1700 level, I
made 17 feet during the week, and is a
now in 556 feet. The face continues i
in soft porphyry, with quite a stream i
of water coming from the drift. We t
are doing no other work on the 1700 i
level at present. The heat is so intense r
that it requires all the air that can be t
forced into No. 3 to keep it going. C
Two months ago we could have run o
three crosscuts with the same amount a
of air, but since we struck water the C
thermometer has raised from 86 to 106
degrees Fahrenheit. In a few days
Gould and Curry will start to run to
the Best and Belcher south line on the i,
1900 level, and then we can take the
drift and drive it north. Yours truly, c

ing. In the latter the fresh air de.
scends from the surface to the 190C
level. The main drift connecting with
Savage on the 1900 level is being
cleaned of the sediment that accumu-
lated whild the l1.vel was submerged.
t OPHIR-The north and south drifts
on the 1900 level are making good pro-
gress. The east drift from the bottom
of the winze on the 1700 level is still in
promising vein formation. The double
winze going down on the Mexican line,
below the 1700 level, is going on as
usual. About 15 tons of ore per day
are being extracted from the west
stopes on the 1l65 level.
MEXICAN-the noith diift dii the
1465 level, to connect with the S'erra
Nevada on the 1500 level, is progress-
ing as usual. The north drift on the
1600 level is still going forward in good
vein-matter, porphyry and quartz.
IMPERIAL-Opening out for a station
on the south winze, at a point 174 feet
on the incline below the 2135 level.
There is no change to note in any part
of the mine. As soon as the station is
completed the incline will be pushed
on down another 100 feet, to connect
with the lowest level of the Jacket for
ventilation. Captain Hardy's resigna-
tion as Superintendent will take effect
on the 15th instant.
YEaLOW JACKET-The diamond drill
hole driven east on the 2200 level was
discontinued after penetrating 263 feet,
most of which was in quartz which
gave assays both in gold and silver.
The north and south drifts on the 2200
level have been started up again. The
north winze is being repaired.
JUSTIE--Daily ore-yield, about 350
tons, from the stopes extending from
the 800 to the 1000 level, which are
looking and yielding as usual. The
praise from the 1000 level, the south
drift on the same level, continue in ore
of fair grade. On the 1000 level the
water is about the same, and keeps the
pump running an average of 7 strokes
per minute. This state of affairs will
continue until the Silver Hill pump
starts up, which will be about the end
of the week. The east drift on the
1150 level is in very fine vein matter,
comprising porphyry and quartz, the
water increasing slightly after the
ground is passed through.
BELCHER-Both inclines beingplished
as rapidly as possible. The north one
is now down 2010 feet; the south one,
1860 feet. The east crosscut on the
1900 level is in 330 feet. The south
drift on the 1900 level is in 234 feet.
Both the air-shaft and old shaft are
being retimbered-the former at various
points where the timbers need easing,
and the latter from the 600 level down.
Daily ore yield, about 50 tons, aver-
aging $25 per ton assay value.
SAVAGE-The water is down below
the 1900 level, and going down at the
rate of about a foot an hour. The big
pump began working at full speed (7J
strokes per minute) at noon to-day.
Work on the Gould & Curry and Sav-
age joint winze from the 1600 down to
the 1900 level was resumed this morn-
ing. It is now down to the 1865 level.
Everything is working satisfactorily at
last, and much better results are ex-
pected than formerly.
BULLION-Still repairing the shaft,
which was found to be in a worse con-
dition than was expected. The only
other work being done in the mine is
on the 2000 level, where a combination
drift is being run north through Alpha
and Exchequer ground. In this drift
work was resumed last Saturday.
EXCHEQUER-The east crosscut is
still making fair progress in vein matter
yielding low assays.
KILLED IN THE SHAFT.
Henry Goldsworthy Fatally Hurt In
the Con. Virginia Shaft on Satur-
day Night-Bls Death This Morn-
Last Saturday night John Henry
Goldsworthy, a miner employed in the
Con. Virginia mine, was thrown from
off the wall plate in the middle com-
partment of the shaft to the 1550 sta-
;ion-a distance of about thirty feet-
nd so badly injured that he died this
morning between 6 and 7 o'clock. At
;he time of the accident Goldsworthy
was repairing the timbers of the shaft
between the 1500 and 1550 levels. A
cage came down the shaft and broke the
?latforum or awning that had been
placed above Goldsworthy, to pro-
oect him in case anything fell down the
shaft, and probably threw him down to
;he bottom, at the 1550 station. The
nan was alone when the accident
occurred, as he was unconscious when
iound and remained unconscious until
his death, which occurred at his home
in G street, between Union and Taylor,
Ibout 7 o'clock this morning. Deceased
vas a native of Newland, Cornwall,
England, and about 30 years old. He
same to this country ten years ago last
luly, and has worked in the mines ever
lince. He was a member of the Miners'
Jnion, the Knights of Pythias, and a
)enevolent society. He will be buried
It 3:30 o'clock to-morrow afternoon,
rom his late residence.

Two lt'lttese Dronlnos In Court-A
Laww.Vye' Seecessfl Ruse.
Kwong Wa Lung, the Chinaman
who was arrested on Saturday
charged with selling opium, Was
tried in the Police Court this afternoon.
That the prisoner should be identified
as the man who sold the opium was a
somniwftt important point in the case.
J. A. Stephens appeared for the de-
fense, and each policeman who had
assisted in the capture was questioned
about as follows:
Lawyer-Are you sure this is the
man (pointing to a Chinaman sitting in
a chair at his right)?
Winirte Yes ; I saw him selling the
opium behind the otihter,
Lawyer-Are you p'ogtive this is the
Witness-I can't swear' positivdfy,
because Chinamen are so much alike-
they all look like brothers to me ; but
to the best of my knowledge that is
the man. I know him by the pock-
marks on his face, and he sold the
opium ; I'm sure that's the man.
After a riumber of witnesses had tes-
tified; Mr. Stephen rose and announced
that the niaf wh'om the witnesses had
been identifying Was Ham Sing, the
interpreter, who was in' Crston on
the night in question, and that the de-
fendant, old Kwong Wa Lung, was off
in the corner braiding his cue. A gen-
eral laugh went up at the expense of
the policemen, and the case was dis-
The officers say they will crop the
ears of th6 frt Qhinaman they catch,
so that they can bW easily identified.
Mr. Stephens was so much elated by
the success of his strategy that he took
all in the court-room into the nearest
saloon and set up the drinks.

A Dangerous Fall.
About 5 o'clock on Saturday evening
John H. Goldway fell from the south
end of the footwalk of the railroad
bridge which spatia Crown Point ra-
vine at Gold HilL He had ascended
the stairs from the ravine to a point a
little above the railing guarding the
footway, when-being somewhat under
the influence of liquor-he stumbled or
struck his foot against the edge of one
of the steps and fell headlong a distance
of eight or ten feet, landing on some
rough rocks. He then rolled down the
steep, rocky slope to the road in the
bottom of the ravine. He received a
ghastly wound in the side of the head,
and is supposed to have been injured
internally by rolling over the rocks
while stunned and unconscious, and
died between 6 and 7 o'clock this
An Accident at the Curry Mine.
Last Saturday morning CharlesVeal,
a miner at the Gould and Curry, while
working in the pump shaft, met with a
severe accident, his left arm having been
caught between a timber and the pump-
rod, and the head of a bolt of one of
the clamps of the latter forced through
the large muscle between the shoulder
and elbow. The hole made was so 2
large that a man might push three fin-
gers through it. The wound is a very
painful one, and Mr. Veal will be una-
ble to resume work for a long time.
A Balloon Explosion.
Alderman Comstock narrowly es-
caped the loss of his left eye, at the
picnic last Saturday, by the bursting of
a small toy balloon. The balloon fell
to the ground, and Alderman Comstock
stooped to pick it up, when it exploded
n his face. His left eyebrow, eye-
lashes and hair were singed.
