An Alleged Discovery Of a Vein In

for silver nor for precious metals"

Mexico to a ma wbo bad asked bim a
question at the Albany bote' Denver

English aocent that one could not guess
wbetber ha were a native of Great
Britain or Boston. '
'The stuff tiat I djg out is this." he
continued picking up a package which
lay near where his arm rested on the
lerk'sdesk. tie unfolded tne paper
and brought to view a cube of yellow-
ish chalky substance tnat waa sapon
aceous to the touch and nearly as light
"Take it ever near the light and
look at it." said Mr. Bledsoe "aod
tell me what It is."
The person addressed according to
the Denver Pont was much interested
and did eo. Under the stronger
lipht. tbe smooth surface seemed full
of infinitesimal porei. One face of the
cube bai been rubbed wita some raspv
urface until it had taken a floe
'It looks nice meerecnaum was;tne
verdict of the Denver man.
That's what I call it Mexican
meerschaum " said Mr. Bledsoe
smiling "and if anybody csn distin

pipes are made I'll give htm a half
interest in my mine or quarry or
whatever you oall it. I'm on my way
to my home In England. I've omy
sojourned In Mexico for the past nln
months" he added parentheti
cally "But I . shall return
hortly ready to develop my meer
schaum vein. All I need is the capita
and I know I'll not haya to show that
cnunk to many people before I have a
company formed and plenty of stock
'But do you think it is the genuine
meerschaum?" the discoverer was
'Yes I am certain that this is the
real thing; in fact I believe that the
only real compact extensive body of
this material in existence Is that whioh
I have found.
"You see" Mr. Bledsoe proceeded
most of the meersohaum heretofore
used has been found in Asia Minor
particularly in the plains of Eski
Sheh where it appears in small lumps
or nodules imbedded in layers
of clay. The nodules are
found In email clusters here
and there and are gouged oat of tbe
clay by the natives.
"Now. what do you think when I tell
you that in my quarry as I call it.
there is a vein or this stun iust like
that you have in your hand a vein

"But how did you discover this ledge

and where .-"'asked his excited listener
"Well" said Mn Bledsoe with a
threwd smile "I don't care to tell
very much about that part of It just
now but l can say this much tbe loca
tion is in Coahulla on tbe banks of
little dry arroyo called 'El Lobo' a
watercourse ttat runs right down
through a nearly level plain.
'The Way I came to discover It was
cdd. I was riding through that part
of the country last June and I lost my
way. I nave a habit of riding horse
back whenever I can in taking notes
on a country and I had followed this
watercourse for several miles trotting
along a cattle trail hoping every
minute to come in sight of some kind
of a ranch.
"About 2 o'clock in the afternoon I
became so thirsty that I picketed my
horse and went down to the botton of
the gulch a distance of some thirty
feet; to see if there was not some
