THE sans sriurnj mini:.
"I liavo just been reading h strare
etory of tho 'fxist Cal)in Mine' in an old
livening .Sun which I found in a pigeon
hole of my desk," taid a prominent Wall
etreot hanker yesterday afternoon. "Sit
down a few momenta and I will tell you
another Ktrange story of a lost mine," ho
continued, "and one that was rather
costly to me, That truth it stranger than
fiction is a wise old Baying. There; in
very little romance, which enters into the
life of a jnofeHsional Wall street man.
As a rule, he id ever ready to grasp after
the almighty dollar, and I confess that I
am no exception to this rule, and many
times during my life have I invested
money in wildcat enterprises looking
more for a possibility than a probability.
These enterprises to which I allude I en
tered into in my younger days. I thought
that I had settled down into a conserva
tive business man; but 1 found, about
nine months ago. that my disposition to
become the richest man in the world had
pot the better of 1:1 v good judgment, and
tho Kt range, weird story winch I am
;iliout to relate will explain itself.
"For a number cf years I have had a
epenlTn;j acquaintance with a Mrooklyn
school teacher. 1 lost sight of him for
ulxmt two ye.irs,- when 1 was surprised
to see him wnlk into my otllce a year
ago. lie asked me If I knew where he
could rent an oflice, and told me that on
account of j!l health he was compelled
to give up school teaching. I have five
rooms here, and as I need but four, I
told him that he could have the back
room nt a nominal rent. Ho seemed de
lighted with tho proposition, and moved
iri the next day. He put out a shingle,
'JMoncy to Loan,' t?.it I noticed that he
had no customers.
"Two or three weeks after his occu
pancy of the office I noticed that bo be
came less erratic in his business hours,
llo began to arrive at 0 o'clock in the
morning and would remain until 4 in the
afternoon locked in the oiKco. Shortly
alter ti-j developed this regularity In his
business hours I met a man in the hall
whose unusual appearance attracted my
Attention. Ha was tall, attenuated to a
mnrk'd degree, of sallow complexion,
smooth face, twinkling, ferret J ike eyes
and hair of shining blackness which hung
down upon his shoulders. He was at
tired in a suit of rusty black. The coat
was an old fashioned frock cut and but
toned tightly to his throat. Jle wore a
broad briir U'! slouch hat. In Ids hand
lie carri J Jle fattier of all umbrellas, a
preat'nShqjt'n affair that would keep
ie raiA'fcw;iDtir ixjonle, and looked as
though it might have belonged to one of
our revolutionary grandfathers.
"I liecame interested and stopped to
pee what his destination was. Ho moved
along with a quick though shambling
step nnd tapped lightly upon my school
teacher neighbor's door. It was opened
and he disappeared within. I heard the
bolt click as the door was locked from
tho inside, and I turned into my office
with a peculiar feeling that I would like
to know who this strange person was.
"I 6aw him come every day, usually
about tlie same time in the day, con
tinued tho banker, "and he would re
main closeted with tho school teacher
for several hours. At last ho disap
peared and my curiosity got tho better
uf me. I made up my mind to ask the
school teacher who his friend was, par
ticularly as I noticed that he had changed
Jiis shmgje to read, 'Mining Engineer.
"I learned from tho school teacher
titat his friend was a spiritualistic me
lium, and then he etartlcd me with the
assertion that he had located the 'Sans
Spiritu Mine.' You must know that this
mine is the richest mine in the world:
was worked before Cortez entered Mex
ico, but for over a hundred years it hns
been lost. Tho school teacher's assertion
rather staggered me, but I laughed in
credulously. " 'You needn't laugh,' said he, I have
found it and I have a man locating it
within a stone's throw. Two years ago
I went to Mexico on a vacation. I am
EOinewhat of a physician and liappened
to save the Life of an old negro woman
who was formerly a housekeeper for a
padre. This padre was the only person
iilire who knew the location of the mine,
.and when he died he divulged the secret
to the netjress, who, in turn, divulged it
"This, of course, was interesting after
tho fashion of dime novels, and I did not
take much stock in his story until I saw
that he was really in earnest. Ho un
locked his desk and took two rolls of
tracing paper out. Ono of them he
showed me and said: 'This is my orig
inal map. The mine lies 400 miles from
the Gulf of Mexico, and Vera Cruz is tho
eeaport to it. The other roll contains a
yuap drawn by the clairvoyant whom
yo.i inquired about. Ho lias never seen
iny map, yet he has drawn almost a fac
iciniile of t, with the exception of a few
fiiinor details. I am not a Spiritualist,
hut I met this man and he bragged of
Jus wonderful powers, and I gave him 83
if he successfully accomplished hi3 ob
ject. He does not know what ho has
clrawn. and I am the only person in the
world who can put his hand 031 the long
lost Sans Spiritu Mine.'
"I confer that the fellow mada an im
pression 011 me," continued the banker,
iif ter lighting a cigar and gazing though t
i'ully nt the smoke ring for a moment.
"1 then asked him for further details,
but he would give me none, further than
thai; the old negress was dead, I asked
liim wliat it would cost to work the mine,
and how ha was fixed. He replied:
" 'I have never seen the mine, but from
Rome manuscripts I have cf the padre's
I judge that there are untold millions in
6i0ht. Of coursu it wjli tr.ko f.orae
money to fit out an expedition, but I
think the output of a months work vi'I
iaj for all the mills necessary. My idea
ls to secretly charter a echooner, provis
ion it for say ens to three montus, put
cboard tluj necessary tools to work tha
mine on the quiet until 1 fret enough out
to acquire the mine lawfully, by t lam
without funds, unfortunately.'
"VfeJl. 1 Lit like a bhark. Heavens,
jhow the blood rushed through my heart!
I trow the school teacher to be a repu-
jt-jle man. lie j.iioweu ine uie pures
which tlio fcchool teacher" was a ir,u l r.
Hp read it to me, and it Bounded like an
Aladdin'H Wonderful Lamp niory. TIij
upshot of tho matter was that I agreed
then and there to interest myself in form
ing a stooij company. Tho next day I
brought four of my Wall street fiiend-i
in : ho school teacher's oh ice and ho
lui 1 bin subject In-fore them. Iheybit
as quickly as I did and I subscrilied $-,-

chartered a schooner, provisioned her
for three months, put ten miners aboard
of her, gave theseli4K.il teacher $"i."S,000,
and he set sail for Vera Cruz. We
waited one, two, three months and 110
new:! from the schooner. Then I tele
graphed to Vera Cruz, asking if the
schooner was there. The reply was that,
it bad been I he re nearly two ninths and

when another month nilknl by ami rwnh

1 h telegraphed in cipher that tho crew
had been discharg'd, the miners paid a

further onlers from the school teacher,
will was I'ooli I 'ah if the schooner and
"A week later came aii4ther telegram,
in which the detective reported that he
had ascertained the fact that the school
teacher had s4ild the provisions at a good
proiit and had left Vera Cruz with a
very handsonso woman, with whom he
Reomoil to be infatuated. We did a little
swearing and then telegraphed the de
tective to find him, and by hook or crook
bring him back. A month later In wtdked
our 4letettive and the Rchool teacher. lie
had (allowed him U) I'd 1'aso lel Norte,
got him across the river 011 a friendly
que..; anil then nabbeil him. The school
teacher seemed to be all broken up ami
t;l ! me t4 g4 t the stockholih'is together,
wlii.-h I tlicl inside of ten minutes, for
my messenger found them all 4)11 the
iloor of thet-Jtoek Exchange. 1 felt sorry
for J'ie poorsclujol teacher when he stood
then1 with bowed head, taking without
a muruiur tho whirlwind of execrations
whi. ii were hurled at him.
" "Now explain yourself,' shouted an
a ngvy stoc k holder.
"The live of us were seated around the
table and thu school teacher leaning
against the mantel.
" Uontlenien,' said he, 'I confess that
I have wronged you, but I was tempted
by a woman with the face of an angel
aiid the heart of a devil a heart as black
as the hinges of hell. Rather than bury
myself in the trackless waste without

got my money and deserted me, but I
will make amends. The mine is there.
I wi'l go again. See, I have the map

" -Oh, that's , likely story. You're
nothing but a bunco and Sing Sing
'jalches you,' was tho irate interjection
of a gentleman on my right.
"'Oh! don't say that,' pleaded the
schoolteacher; 'don't say that. Just one
more chance,' and he tottered oyer to the
table, laying the map where all could see
it. 'See! Here is tho load to millions,

Just He ure chance, gentlemen.'

We uictly took the body to his home in
