There were a number of others who
went in that direction but whose
destination was unknown to me.
I also heard the remark made, a
short time ago, that one of the
merchants of a neighboring town
said that while the roads to Med
ford were almost impassable he did
a good business but now the farm
ers passed right on to Medford just
as if he was not in business. That
remark shows to your business n.en
and women the necessity of secur

As mining is the chief industry J
of this part of the country, any in-j
formation concerning prospecting
and developing of the mines in this'
locality will no doubt be of interest !
to vim r readers, therefore I will;
give some particulars concerning'
the same, from time to time. j
There are a number of promising!
mines within a radius oT ten miles;
from this poin'., which I will leave
to others who are more conversant!
with them, and will confine myself
to this district. Saxe creek is a;
branch of Evans creek, ten miles

The old keeper of the morgue in this i
city, who has seen hundreds of tin- i
known iMHiies exhibited for identitica- j
tion, has arrived at some interesting ,
conclusions, says the Philadelphia Kee- :
nrd. If the face of the dead p'i-son is I
perfectly composed ami natural, of I
course, intimate friends or relatives!
recognize them immediately. Hut. he !
says, if the face is distorted through
pain or liisfigured by injuries, a casual j
acquaintance can identify the body 1
much easier than the closest relation. !
lie explains this by spying that people
who have known a persiin well for a j
long time lose sight of the features and j
sec rather the personality rellected in i
the lines of the face. A casual ac-j
itiaintance notes the features, and can j
recognize them when seen again, even
if ootibidcublv distorted. I
