Tho sluice was made by men unaccus

tell just how much jroid there was in
the lifteen loads of sand. However,
about $22 worth of gold was obtained
ns a result of the experiment and
about one-half a Dushel of block 6and
was secured, which has not been
tested yet. It is thought that quK$.a
larjre amount of gold was washed over.'
Wednesday ten farmers from Pleasant

twenty-five loads of dirt and sand to

along very smoothly until the pro

irate miller, who is a man who will
measure more than six feet in his

tones to stop that they stopped. Sat

waste was run off into another place.
Engineer Bartlett said that there was
at least $50 worth of pure gold in the
black sand that was obtained when the

A Well Spiked Cannon.
Joseph Wallace Cannon, a young
man who gave his name as Joe and
said his home was in Cass county and
claimed to boa relative of "Treasurer
Eikenbary, says the .Nebraska City
News, today became a guest of this
county and will most likely remain for
some time, and all on account of a very
foolish move he made. . He was sitting
at the desk at the Grand Pacific writ

sent for. and as soon as ho arrived the
young man was placed under arrest
and requested to .elevate his hands,
which ho promptly complied with, and
Mr. Sichl proceeded to see what he
had. He found a new revolver.
Cannon was taken to the court house
when he told the officers that ho had
never been in trouble before except
when he appropriated a bicj-cle, but
the crime was condoned. He also ad
mitted that tho order was a forgery.

Gentlemen : I desire to express my heartfelt
thanks to you for my marvelous restoration to
health. I was sick for many years with a. bad
case of diabetes which made me very thin and j
weaK. I also sutterea much loss ot sleep, having i
to get up so many times at night to pass urine,
and also great annoyance from thirst that water
would not satisfy. A few months ago I began,
to follow your instructions in regard to diet
and to use
Dr. J. H. McLean's Liver and Kidney Balm.
It is a grand medicine. I used three bottles, and, thanks be to God, am a
well man again. You are at liberty to publish this if you desire, as I would
be glad to be the means o calling the attention of victims of diabetes to a
remedy that will give them a blessed relief. LOUIS PHILLIPS,

Tho report of the secretary of the
Smithsonian institution, just issued,
contains some interesting statements
as to tho rapid disappearance of the
buffalo from tho Yellowstone nark.
When this park was organized it was
supposed that a permanent refugo for
these animals had been secured. On
the other hand, the secretary reports
that the conditions in the pa-k are
such that the extermination of the
government herd may be accomplish
ed in a very short space of time. The
superintendent has no means at his
command for Drotectiner them, which
is of itself sufficient inducement for
the ravages of poachers. Two years
ago there were 200 buffaloes -in the '
park. The present estimate is fifty,
and these are so constantly pursued
that it is safe to say they will all be
killed within a year. . All of the other
animals in the park are properly pro
tected and are increasing. In view of
the fate which seems destined to over
take the buffalo the report recom
mends that these animals, or a ma-
jority-of them, shall -be transferred as
soon as practicable to the National
Zoological park at Washington, which
affords room and security. "Their
natural increase in the future can be
distributed by exchange with the
zoological gardens of the various parks
of tho United States, so that no large
city need be without its representa
tives of the great herds so often re
ferred to in our early history, and now
a memory." Chicago Tribune. -
