COPPER HA8 BEEN DISCOVERED
Vein Is Said to Be Rich in Copper,
but the Depth or Thicknoss of It
Has Not Yot Boen Ascertained.

a rich vein of popper linn lioen dlscov

Noxen nrnr u plnco called Kvans'

In tho 11 lull school in thin city. Prof.
Canflclil In rnnsliloralilo of a mineralo

"Four yearn npo ho was In N'oen
and while there he learned that some
one hail discovered copner near that
place, lnipilry revcahd the fact that
tho iici'Fou loforied to had opened a
mine elRhteen feet deep, orsanlzed a
company with considerable money be
hind It, to whom he sold out. When
subsequent 'investigation in made It
was found that the so-called mine had
been "salted," and when the time camo
to bosln operations no traces of copper
could be found. With this discovery
dime the sudden disappearance of the
man who U alleged to have found
traces of the rich mineral.
"Prof, c'antleld was on a vacation at
N'oxcn four years hro, and while walk
ing about found unmistakable evi
dences of copper, lie had not tho nec
essary moans to pursue his Investiga
tion further at that time, ,ut since
then he has succeeded In IntercstliiK n
number of local business men, one of
whom Is V. H. ninkle. Throe weeks
jko Prof. I'anlleld and .Mr. lllnklo went
to Kvaiis' Palls amply supplied with
dynamite and drills and when the spot
was reached they Hied tvventy-elKht
shots, tho Hist ever blown out of Can
flold's Unci. When the samples arrived
at AkoiU Dlnklo'H olHco, the latter left
at once for Carlisle where tho samples
were put through a tlim-mmli tost by
Prof. Horn, of Dli klnson university,
at tho conclusion of which tho profes-
sor said that tho samples assayed flfty
ftve and sixty per tent, copper.
"Prof. Cnntield and Mr. Dinklo vis
ited the mine npaln on Friday and se
cured about live hundred pounds of
samples which arrived In tho city on
Saturday, and since they have been put
through tho most severe tests known
to scientists, tho result belnc that they
fully verify the test made by Prof.
"AmoiiK these samples are peacock,
malachite and azurelte copper, the two
latter belnp: carbonate of copper. An
other sample Is what Is known ninons
scientists as chalcopyrite which with
tho peacock. Is .sulphide of copper, and
In relative value compares equally with
the former two. If it becomes possi
ble to work It by the electrolytic pio
cess, Prof. Cantleld says It can be
worked at a prollt as low as four per
cent., thoiiRh ho is confident It will not
Ko below forty per cent., based on the
tests i-o far iniide.
"Tho vein so far exposed has a width
of twelve feet and a depth of elRht
feet. At this time It Is not possible to
estimate tho depth of the mineralized
body, but as tt rule tho farther It Roes
tho richer it crows. Tho vein has a
"dip" of forty-live deRieesk nnrthoast
ami southwest and the rock shows an
Infusion which indicates volcanic erup
tionIn other words, It reveals that at
some period of the earth's -history a
volcanic eruption has occurred there.
At one point it shows a "dyke," which
.nlso contains mineralized rock.
"Prof, ranfleld and Mr. Dinklo have
pecured a lease of GJO acres of land
sun-nun dine; their mine. Tho property
on which flic mine Is located Is owned
by Mrs, KUon A. Prong1. Some of tho
rock -was shown Ilev. ('. U Walker,
who has made a profound study of
mineralogy, and he felt confident that
the Kvans' Palls mine Is a very valu
able one. His enthusiastic comment
was: "Hoys, you've struck it!"

Could You LooK Inside Yourself
Yon Would See Why the Nerves
Have Such a Wide Influence
The influence of Xerve Control over
health was never so fully recognized
as now. It is clearly Illustrated in tho
thousands of cures made by Dr. A. W.
Chase's Norvo Pills a medicine that
has leaped into public favor solely on
its wonderful Nerve restoring proper
ties. Tho reason Nerve Pills break
down the barriers of 111 health, Is be
cause they restore Nerve Knergy the
main spring of health. They supply
the something Hint is wanting which
makes tho human machinery run
smoothly, they apt through that great
network of human organism, reaching
every part of the body the Nerves.
Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills do not
let as a momentary stimulant that ex
:ltes and whips up the Nerves for the
time being only they first stop the
wasting process and then build up
Nerve Energy by replacing Nerve
wasto with active, responsive tissue
the kind that vibrates health to mind
Mrs. Joseph Mitchell, of No. 916 Lin
den 6treet, West Scranton, Pa says;
"Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve Pills are
fine. I was all out of order, nervous
nnd could not sleep weak nnd mis
erable. The klndneys were sluggish
and the back lame nothing seemed
to help ma until I got n box of the
nerve pills at Matthews Hros.' drug
store, Lackawanna avenue, Since I
took them I sleep well, don't Jerk and
talk. My nerves are steady i feel
Btrong and tho klndenys are working
well ngaln. I nra more than pleased
and glad to recommend the medicine,"

Retires on July 31.
Paymaster Wilhelm, of thp Lehigh
Valley railroad, who has held that po
sition for forty years, retires on Jnlv
31. his resignation having been accept
ed. Much conjecture ns to Mr. Wll
helm's successor Is being Indulged In.
George Haines is tho assistant pay
master, and therefore, the logical suc
cessor. It may bo the system of dis
bursing the monthly wages will bo
changed. This may then occasion
more changes In tho department.
The present system is the result of
years of study on the part of Mr. Wil
li lm nnd makes mistakes wel nigh
impossible. In addition to this the
time and place of pavment of every
cent of money to the various employes
may bo seen at n glance. This feature
is the creation of Calvin Wilhelm, son

Cleveland I'laln Pcaler,
T11K train boy watched the quiet
man In tho dark blue suit with
some curiosity. He was a quiet
man, and yet strangely roHtle?.
At every station he would rise
from his seat nnd set out on the rear
platform of the car. If there was suf
ficient time he would go out on the sta
tion nlatfnrm nnd walk tin nnd down.
When ho returned to his neat his eyes j
were cither on tho Inndsoape, or on his
watch, or on the bundle of papers he
drew from an Inner pocket.
The train boy . was In tho habit of
studying the passengers. He sets, this
particular passenger down as nn nnia
teur traveler who was afraid he might
Business was dull with the train boy.
It was n hot Juno day, and customers
xvfrc scarce) when the thermometer
climbed up In the S0., and the air was
full of dust, nnd the flying lnndscapo
was almost painful to look at In Its
dazzling brightness. Tho train boy had
stacking up his goods on n fvnt nt one
end of the car. He felt a little lone
some, and slowly strode up the car
nlslo. Ho paused beside a seat on
which sat a gray haired woman of
very neat but unassuming appearance.
The boy stooped over,
"Anything I can get for you grand
ma?" he asked In his cheery way.
"Drink of watorV"
The elderly woman looked up nnd
smilingly shook her head.
"All right," said tho boy. "You just
motion to mo If there's anything you
need. I'll be round somewhere."
He moved along until he camo to the
quiet man, who for the moment hap
pened to be Idle. The boy perched him
self on tho arm of tho opposite seat.
Tho quiet man looked at him. He was
still a young man, but with a face that
seemed to bear the Impress of much
expotlenco. He knit his brows slightly
as ho looked the boy over.
"Sid down, my lad," lie said, ns he
pointed to tho ceat In front of him,
which was turned over so ns to face
tho quiet man's scat.
Tho train hoy took the seat. He
looked up at the quiet man.
"Ouoss It's your first trip over the
lino, ain't It?" ho asked.
"What makes you thing so?"
"You're so lldgety," said the boy.
"you're afraid you're going to miss
something. It escems a lit Ie funny to
me, you know, 'cause I've been over
tho road every blessed day for the last
"You know all about it, then?" said
tho quiet man.
"Don't I?" laughed tho hoy. "I used
to make a study of It, but I got tired
of that. When I Hist came on I was
a little scared, you know, 'Krald we'd
jump tho track or tho trestles, or
something. And I used to listen to the
old eliimpety-cliimplng until It sort o'
made ongs for me, an' after a while
there was a kind of Ming for every
piece o' tho road."
"You're something of a poot," said
tho quiet man.
"I guess not," laughed the boy. "Be
ing a train boy will knock the poetry
out of a fellow 'bout as quick as any
thing, I guess."
"Perhaps you aro right," said the
quiet man. "I was train boy for a
little while myself."
"You," cried the hoy. Ho laughed as
if tho Idea amused him. "I don't, be
lieve you was much good at it," ho
said. "You haven't got enough chock."
"Well." said the quiet man with a
laugh, that faintly echoed tho boy's, "I
didn't keep the Job long. I,was rather
glad, I remember, when 1 was promoted
to brnkeinan, and still more glad when
I loft that joh to be a telegraph opera
tor." "Well, say." cried the boy, "you
know more about railroading than I
gave you credit for."
"But 1 feel proty sure you know a
good ileal more about this particular
piece of railroading than I do," s-aid
tho quiet man,
"Perhaps," said tho boy, "Guess I
can tell tho poor spots along the line
nbout as well as anybody. I know
thorp's a shnrp curve Just this side o'
Rllletsburg that ought to be straighten
ed. And theie's a rough piece near
Baynevillo that needs relayln'. An' I
know we're goin' to strike the worst
section of all when we pass Ketorah
They've been talking about relaying It
for. months, but they don't do It,"
"Yes," said the quiet man as ho drew
a paper from his pocket and pencilled
a note on the murgln.
"So you're n railroad man?" continu
ed the boy, as he studied tho stranger's
"I'm something of railroad man,"
wns the reply. "What branch would
you Imagine me to bo In?"
Tho boy looked him over carefully.
"Well," he said, "I guess you're a
freight conductor goin' home to spend
your vacation with your mother."
The quiet man laughed loud.
"A good guess," ho said, nnd laugcd
again. Then he added, "I suppose you
are glad to spend your vacations with
"Me?" said the boy. "I don't re
member that I ever had a mother. I'm
Just a boy out of the streets. An aunt
that turned me adrift Is the only rela
tive I remember. llcsldes I don't
have any vacations."
"Didn't I hear you call ono of the pan-
sengers grandma?" inquired tho quiet
"Yes," replied the boy. "I called her
that because she looks like the kind of
grandma n boy would like to have. I've
had my eye on her ever since she came
aboard at Berwick. She knows I'm
lookln' out for her an' It makes her
feel more comfortable. Every trip now
I look out for somebody Just pick 'em
out. you know, an' kind o' keep a
watchful eye on 'em. It makes the
ride a little more pleasant for them
you know, an' I guess It doe for me
some good, too. An' besides, It helps
to pass away the time."
The stranger looked at tho boy with
n new Interest.
"What's your name?" lie asked.
"Jack," said the boy, "Jack Man
ning." Ho looked out of the window
as ho spoke. "We nre pust passing
Ketorah," ho said. "We'll strike that
tough bit of road In a minute or two.
You'll notice the bumpln' all light."
"So you get no vacations?" said the
strnnger. "All work and no play must
make Jack Manning a dull boy."
The train boy laughed.
"neuss I ain't 'specially dull," he
said. "Besides. I'm going to get what
may be a good long vacation light
nway. This road has got through with
train boys; they're all laid off. This Is
my last trip."
"Your last trip?" echoed the strung-

or. Scarcely had tho words left his
lips when the car gave a sudden lurch
and careened. There wn a savage
bump or two, and then, with a mighty
crash, the car lolled over. High arose
u chorus of shrill shrieks and tho nlr
was tilled w Ith blinding dtmt.
When the train boy got back his
dazed senses he found himself crnwilngi
up the bank of the ditch. There was'
a lump on his head, a cut across his
ear, nnd ono of his nnkles was
wrenched. He looked round ns ho
wiped his grimy fuce.
The train had been ditched and It
was a bad wreck. Ahead he could see
the white cloud of steam that told of
the engine's position. The tender xvas
plied above It, and behind that came
tho baggage nnd express cars and after
the four passenger cars, crushed
against ono another or lying battered
and shattered along the ditch like so
many broken toys.
".Tack!" called a voice. The quiet
man, with his head and shoulders pro
jecting from a window wns calling to
him, "Heie, Jack, give mo a lift. I
seem to be pinned down by something."
Tho boy mounted the 6lde of the
crushed enr, and with a steady pull
drew the quiet mnn out. ".My arm Is
twisted," said the latter, as he looked
about, "or I could have helped myself,"
He guzed around and gave a little
groan. Then It seemed to Jack as If
his manner suddenly changed. He
straightened up, and his eyes sparkled,
"We must have help nt once," he
cried. "Do you know where we arc?"
"The next stop Is Caldwell, 'bout
three miles ahead," answered Jacy.
"And Hammersburg is nlno miles be
yond that," said the quiet man. "They
can make up a relief train there." Ho
felt of his injured arm and twinge
ran through him. He turned to Jack.
"Get down Into the car nnd bring up
my hag," he said, with swift abrupt
ness. Jack quickly clambered through the
window, nnd a moment later passed up
"Hero," he suddenly called, "here's
grandma and she's all right." Almost
as ho spoke the head of tho lady ap
peared above the opening, and with u
etrong pull from the quiet man's sound
arm and with Jack's help below, bhe
was quickly drawn through.
She was a brave lady, and though she
trembled a little her voice wns lirm.
"There Is a shady place under the
trees on the bank theio," she said as
she looked about. "Have the hurt
brought up there. I will do what I can
for them. I have had experience as a
"I hope to have help hero very soon,"
said tho quiet man. Then ho returned
to tho boy. "Climb that telephone pole
there nnd cut the three wires on tho
lower arm. Have you anything to do
the cutting with?"
"Yc6t, sir," replied Jnck, "I've got a
jacknlfe that will do anything."
The boy's leg was sore and his head
hummed and throbbed, and it was hard
climbing, but he managed to roach the
bar. A moment later the severed wires
fell and the qulot man had drawn a
telegraph Instrument from his bag and
was sounding them. As Jnck reached
the ground he heard the rapid click
ing. The quiet man presently arose.
"An engine with doctors will leave
Caldwell In fifteen minutes," he said,
"nnd n relief train will bo made up at
once at Hammersburg?"
"Yc, sir" said Jack. "What next?"
"Are you hurt?" cried the quiet man
as he stated at tho boy.
"Only a scratch, sir." He flung his
coat aside. "Wnltln' orders, sir," ho
"Go down tho lino and tell the tialn
men to report to me here at once. Wo
must go nt this work In an orderly
"Who shall I say sent me?"
The boy whistled ns ho sped along.
4 "Tho new general mnnager," he
murmured, "and he's a corker, too."
Then followed hours of tho hardest
work the boy had over known. Ho was
the manager's right-hand mnn, his
messenger, his lieutenant, his devoted
aid, his faithful clerk. Through all
these scenes of suffering and toll the
boy never faltered. Tho old woman got
at him nnd bandaged his head and
begged him to rest, but he shook his
bandages at her and hurried back to
the side of the quiet man. The quiet
mnn xvas a man of steel, who, with ono
arm dangling by his side, gave his or
ders, and sent dispatches and kept an
ever watchful eye on all that was done.
And then when night's shades had
fallen and a merciful coolness had come
with the setting of the sun, and the
second relief train was about to leave
and the track repairers and the wreck
ing crew were at work, the quiet man
turned to the boy and gripped his
"Well, my lad," ho said, with a dry
sob, "we have done xvhat we could,
please God," He looked at the lad,
"You have found me a bard master,"
"You are Just my style," said Master
Jack a little brokenly.
"Come," said the quiet man, "we can
go now," He leaned on Jack's shoulder
as they walked toward the train. He
was tired nnd faint. "And remember,"
he added, with a little smile, "that va
cation Is Indefinitely postponed,"
"All light, sir," said Ja?k.

succeeded In capturing a snake, or a
pair of snakes, hitched together like
the Siamese twins. The twins have
two hends nnd two tails, and the rest
of their body Is like that of a single

their entire length. The bodies Join
about six Inches from the head. The
tails are each nlmost a foot long. The
length of the Joined body In two foot,
nlno Inches. The twins wore first seen
