The mines consist of Five Lead claims and Two

The hooks of the Company are now open for
subscription to the working capital of which
there are three hundred thousand shares of the

sold for the purpose of raising sufficient money
to erect a 50-ton concentrating plant on the

stock upon the market at a very low price.
The Company will sell one hundred thousand
shares of its working capital for Fifteen cents a
share. Only this number of shares will be sold
at that price.
The Company will sell the second one hundred
thousand shares at Twenty-five cents a share and
will not sell the third one hundred thousand shares
at a less price than Thirty-five cents per share
and the proceeds of this last hundred thousand
shares when sold will be reserved for the purpose
of increasing the capacity of the plant to one

The Company has two mill sites
sorinjrs that will furnish sufficient
much larger plant.
On the Lead claims the vein of ore is from 50
to 100 feet wide carrying from 15 to 35 per cent
in Lead and 10 ounces of silver per ton. There
is ore enough in sight to justify a five hundred
ton plant and to insure dividends for fifty
years to its shareholders.
The people of El Paso have never before had a
more favorable opportunity to put out a little
money and make a large dividend paying invest-
ment that will last for a lifetime.
The Mines will constantly improve the reduction
plant will increase in capacity the dividends Will
double the shares increase in value tenfold.
This is no fairy tale but truths that can be
demonstrated to the satisfaction of every pur-
chaser. The mines can be investigated with
little expense being only seventy-five miles from
this city a day and a half ride in a buggy from
El Paso. '
The Mines can be worked by a tunnel directly back
of the mill on the vein. Ore taken out can be
run direct from tunnel to mill without handling.
The tunnel will tap the mines at a depth of two
thousand feet below the apex of the mountain
into an inexhaustible supply of ore. No hoisting
or pumping machinery will be required for twenty
years upon the Mines.
The Company estimates its profits on a 50-ton
concentrating plant to be as follows:
To concentrate six tons into one and 50 tons daily capacity
would produce eight and one-third tons of Lead Con-
centrates averaging 70 per cent Lead and 700
ounces of Silver.

Lifting the quaint. old casket's lid.
To while away an hour
Among the yellow papers hid
I found a withered flower.
Its loaves wre pressed with tender car
Its petals clung together;
It breathed a fragrance faint and rara
As of the April weather.
I know not how it came my own
I prayed its giver pardon
fro long aso its bloom had grown
In some forgotteu garden.
But yet around its withered leaves
Pathetic perfume lingers.
As if for some old days it grieves
And soft caressing fingers.
'Twas once a red and radiant rose
Ieop tinged and fiery embercd.
But now a dream perchance it knows
Of passion unrenicmbcred.
Whose hand caressed thee withered onef
What snowy bosom bore thee
And whose the sigh tiiat lived upon
Sweet lips of scarlet o'er thee?
Ah who can tell! The romance blent
With thee no tongue will sever
Thou ghost of some dead sentiment!
1 lay tiiee back forever.

It was her system that made Mrs.

When Susan Jones came however
l rs. Robinson had her work cut out.
The girl lied like au eel there was uo
catching hold of her.
At tirst she just chirped out lies as
light hearted as a bird. "I'leas'm It
were the cat" or anything that came
uppermost. Hut the cat had a way
of proving an alibi that astonished
So Susan got as cautious as charity
and it would have done your heart
good to see the two at it for Mrs. Rob-
inson had no sooner got the ferret of
truth into one hole than Susan was
out and in at another.
Any one else would have got sick
and disgusted but Mrs. Robinson

worn out by the sheer uselessness of
the thing and at last shut down in dis-

and then she let off the awfulest lie
Mrs. Robinson had ever heard in her
born days. At least Mrs. Robinson
thought It was.
It happened like this. One morning
when Susan was in the coal cellar she
found a lady's ring that dazzled your
eyes and took your breath away.
"It's one of them 5 cent things as
you can buy in any tinker's shop" site
said to herself. "Just a lot of rubbishy
glass. I don't believe it's worth both-
She took it to her mistress however.
Mrs. Robinson gave a cry when she
saw ihe ring and started up with her
niouth open. "It looks like one of the
rings mentioned in my grandmother's
Inventory." she said. "I shouldn't won-
der if it belongs to the lost set of dia-
monds." Mrs. Robinson was a widow and liv-
ed with her brother John. I'ew men
could look wiser than Mr. John when
he tried it. His spectacles made him
look like Solomon. When he came
home he put them on and raked out
the Inventory and placed his forefinger
on au exact description of the ring. It
was valued at $2M.
After they had all wondered awhile
they put on last year's clothes got
caudles and went into the cellar; but
though they shifted the coals about for
hours they got nothing but their faces
blacked. Mr. John's was the blackest.
When she had got herself washed
and dusted Mrs. Robinson put the
ring on and wore it till night but be-
fore retiring to rest she put it ou her
toilet table iu case it got lost in bed.
In the morning the ring was gone.
Susan took a red face as soon as her
mistress came down stairs. Mrs. Rob-
inson just stood still and looked at her
for a moment and then she said:
"Susan what have you done with the
"I never touched it. ma'am" was Su-
san's reply and the girl sat right down
on her chest and burst into tears.
"Then what are you crying for?" In-
quired her mistress.
Hut Susan sobbed on and said noth-
ing. "I'll give you an hour to make up
your mind about it" said Mrs. Robin-
son. "You're not to do any work for
Susan sat ou t lie chest the whole 00
minutes and cried herself out. Mrs.
Robinson came down at the end of
that time and found her still glued to

"Mr. John took It ma'am."

the matter. "What wha what?" he
gasped. "The girl is stone mad. I
never heard such a thing in my life. I
"I guessed as much" replied his sis-
ter. "She is sitting ou her chest look-
ing as guilty as a red herring."
"What is to be done?''
"We shan't call iu the police. The
girl has been making progress and the
prison would put an end to all that. I
believe she will give us Ihe ring yet.
Hut it would be wrong to keep her
here. She shall pack up today aud
leave tomorrow morning."
And Susan got notice accordingly.
"I knew you wouldn't believe me"
said the girl gulping down a sob.
"Then w hy did you tell me such a

"Don't say any more. I don't want
to hear it. I don't suppose you will
expect any wages."
Susan turned ghastly white. "I must
have them." she gasped. "My mother
needs the money to pay her rent. If
she doesn't get it they will turn her
out into the street and she's not

ring at least not yet" thought Mrs.
Robinson. "If I give iter her wages

As the old lady lay awake in the
middle of the night the door was cau-
tiously pushed open ami Susan came
"Mrs. Robinson are you awake?"
The question came in a terrified
whisper. Susan's eves were starting
out of her head and her feet it were
chat b ring.
"What is the matter Susan?"
"Master lias gone up to the garret

Mrs. Robinson came hastily over her
bed and followed Susan noiselessly
along the passage. A glimmer of light
shone through Ihe banisters above.
Mrs. Robinson saw that her brother
was coming down stairs staring
straight ahead with his eyes dilated.
He approached as stately as a -wax
figure and almost brushed against
them. The light of the eaudle Tell full
on their while upturned faces as he
passed but he took no notice of them.
Down the next (light of stairs he
went his sister aud Susan following
for they wanted to see what he was
going to do. They lost sight of him
at Ihe foot of the stairs but soon heard
the door of the coal cellar creaking on

As he passed his sister nud Susan

He then made his way toward his
sister's room into which he disappear-
ed for a few seconds. Coming out
again he mounted the stairs Iu the di-
rection of the garret.
"It's no use following him" said
Mrs. Robiuson. "I know the key he
used aud can get it in the morning."
Mr. John was coining down the gar-
ret stairs again and they both held
their breatli in anxiety.

Mr. John rose with his face quite se-
rious ami without rubbing himself or
anything went along the passage and
disappeared into his own bedroom.
"It is evidently not the tirst time lie
has walked in his sleep" said the old
lady. "He must have visited the box
before. That is how the ring came to
be found. It must hae dropped on
the floor. To think that 1 never had
the slightest suspicion: Susan can
you ever forgive me?"
"There you see the ring on' the toilet

inson as they entered her bedroom.

forth iu the inventory.
"It was really you who found them."
said Mrs. Robinson to Susan "and I'll

legal reward and more. I'll pay your
mother's rent as long as she lives."
