GOLD 52.50 TO THE PAN
RICK PLACER GROUND OX SALMON
Revival of the Old Florence Cnmp
BufTnlo Hump Promises to
IT. E. Heppner, a Portland man who
has spent a dozen years mining in Idaho,
making headquarters at Grangeville moat
of the time, hat returned to Portland for
a. visit. He usually spends the Winter
with his family here, but this year he
came out later than usual, and will re
turn earlier, remaining here but two or
three weeks. The reason for this is that
the "Winter Is rather open in the Salmon
River country, and he has some rich
placer ground that demands his attention
"Talk about your Klondlkes!" said he
yesterday. "I have a mile of placer
ground on the Salmon River and have
repeatedly taken out $2 50 to the pan. It
runs high right along. I am doing some
drifting there this Winter, and if the
engineering work now in progress does not
run. out of pay dirt I have a great placer
property. The practice has been with
those claims to dig out the gravel and
carry it down to the river for washing,
by cutting through a ledge or dyke of
rock I can get water in abundance on a
large area of placer ground that has not
yet been tested. There is no way to tell
now whether the vnAues will remain on
the other side of the rim of rock, but the
lay of the land and the flow of the
river give every promise of a lot of gold
in the gravel on the other side. The bed
rock gravel is under a thick stratum of
unproductive earth. The gold Is coarse,
and I have here a lot of nuggets worth
as high as $5 each."
This placer ground Is almost directly
under the old Florence diggings, that is,
on the river bottom, while the Florence
diggings were on a high bench and a con
siderable distance above. The Florence
placers have given way to quartz mines,
and there is a good dea.1 of activity In the
camp this Winter, Mr. Heppner says.
Some New York capitalists have gone In
there, and three Huntington mills are in
lull operation this Winter. A great deal
of gold is taken out.
Mr. Heppner is Inclined to be enthusi
astic over the Buffalo Hump mines. Four
teen stamps are now in operation at that
camp, and two more batteries of 10 stamps
each are now being installed. A fairly
pood wagon road has been opened from
Grangeville. so it is comparatively easy
to get in there now. Hitherto claim,
owners without surplus capital have been
waiting to see the result of the work of
the Sweeney syndicate, which acquired the
Big Buffalo claim, and has been doing a
lot of development The syndicate has
certainly arrived at results that It is not
"willing to make public, and is going ahead
"with th'e work. Private owners have lost
their timidity, and are putting In mills of
their own and opening up claims in va
rious parts of the camp. The most con
firmed croaker no longer doubts the rich
ness of the Buffalo Hump camp, Mr.
Grangeville people olalm the easiest
route to Thunder Mountain or Vinegar
Hill, In the upper part of Idaho County,
near a branch of the Middle Fork of the

JONES PAYS UP GLADLY.
He Flashes a BIk Roll of Bills to
Sntlsfy n $2 Fine.
Wearing a particularly baggy pair ot
trousers, M. M. Jones walked before Mu
nicipal Judge Cameron yesterday to
answer a charge of drunkenness. He had
the air and appearance of a man who
didn't have a cent. He pleaded guilty.
"Have you ever been here before?" in
quired the Judge, cautiously.
"No, sir. I hope you'll let me off eas
ily." remarked Jones.
"You are lined $2. Take him down
stairs." said the Judge.
Now, in the usual course of events, the
prisoner obediently walks to his cell, but
not so JoneK. He grinned affably, placed
a grimy hand Into the depths of his ca
pacious trousers, and said: "Guess I've
got a pocket the police didn't search when
they arrested mc," and he drew out a
thick wad of greenbacks, selected two ?1
bills, and handed them to Clerk McDevltt.
The policeman who had testified against
the prisoner nearly fainted, while the
other prisoners who had slept near Jones
all through the night. Ignorant of the fact
that he carried a roll of greenbacks, mur
mured among themselves. One hardened
old sinner remarked in a husky whisper:

In those dreary midwinter days, when
the m rains descend and the floods come,
such residents of Portland as possesss
carriages, buggies or automobiles are
prone to leave them to rust and decay in
dry barns, while only those whose busi

portunity to use the fine thoroughfares
which stretch from the heart of the city
In every direction. Thus that noble boule
vard known to fame as North Front street
has become a stranger to the prancing
thoroughbred and the lightly built pleasure
vehicle, and only the plodding draught
horse and the lumbering slab wagon rip

eddying waves dancing about the myriad

compose the street, and learned that
the said vandal was employed by a fuel

NEW TEXT-BOOKS IN USE
AT LHAST 05 PER CEXT OF OREGON
SCHOOLS ARE SUPPLIED.
Under Xew Law an Economy of 10
Per Cent Is EfTecte-d Remote
Districts Slow to Change.
At least 25 per cent of the schools of
the state are now supplied with the new
text-books adopted by the commission
appointed for that purpose. The 5 per
cent of schools in which exchange has not
been effected are those In the re-mote
parts of the state. In many of the school
districts no Winter sessions are held, and
for this reason there has been a tardiness
In exenanging old text-books for new
However, the saving effected by reduced
prices will result In small hardship to de
linquents. It being estimated that there
will be a saving of nearly 10 per cent on
the total cost of school books for the
year. While In .individual cases this
economy will not be of great value In the
segregate, the amount will be consider
able. John Gill, who was named to ef
fect the exchange, said yesterday that
during the past five years an average of
560.000 had been spent annually for text
books, and with a growing population the
demand will probably Increase.
"There ls no reason," said Mr. Gill yes
terday, "why every one in the Willam
ette Valley, points along the O. R. & N.
and along the Lowcjr Columbia should
not be supplied with new books. About
2T0 depositories have been selected where
the books can be exchanged, and the old
volumes will be forwarded here. I bhould
estimate that in all over 300.000 books have
been turned over to the depositories
named, for which new books were issued.
"Some of the more remote districts of
the state were found to be practically
inaccessible from Portland, but no delay
resulted from this reason. For Instance,
it was found necessary to ship the con
signment for Curry County via San Fran
cisco, from which point they were sent to
Crescent City, and thence over the line
Into Oregon again. By the arrangement
made by the commission the same intro
ductory and exchange price prevailed at
all points In the state, and there was no
extra expense to the residents of Curry
County because of the Increased transpor
"In some of the smaller towns the mer
chants appointed to exchange books de
clined the appointment, and where pos
sible arrangement was made with private
citizens or with other merchants in near
by towns. The new list of text-books
has several advantages over the old one.
Perhaps the most Important will be the
substantial saving In the cost over previ
ous years. Especially ls this so In readers,
of which there are more used than any
other of the text-books.
"Every child entering school is obliged
to go through the course of primers and
readers, and the new books are 20 per cent
less In price than the old ones. A similar
discount has been obtained in arithmetics,
and a saving of one-third has been effect
ed in drawing and copy books. The aver
age cost of the entire list will be nearly
10 per cent less than the list discarded."
The old books will begin to arrive from
the depositories shortly, and will be re
ceived here by llr. Gill. When all the
returns are in it will probably be found
that the number will considerably exceed
BOLD BANK ROBBERY.
Masked Men Looted a Stock Ynrds
Institution at Eawt St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS, Jan. 7. Six masked men
entered the National Stock Yards Bank
north of East St. Louis. III., last night
and after choking and gagging the two
night watchmen and the fireman at the
steam plant and blowing open the vaults
with dynamite, secured J5000 In coin, and
currency, with which they decamped early
today. From 7 o'clock lost night until 4
A. M. they were at work on the vaults
without being itnerfered with.
Lee Phllpot, one of the watchmen, a
rough rider friend of President Roos-evelt,
was standing near the Exchange Build
ing, in which the bank ls located, when
he was addressed by three men who
sprang out of a fence corner with revol
vers in their hands. They said: "We
want you, Phllpot," and overpowered him
before he could reach his revolver. The
three robbers took Phllpot to the com
posing room of the Dally National Stock
Yards Reporter, near by, and laid him on
the floor. He was bound hand and foot
and gagged with towels. While lying
there three other men came in. Phllpot
hrard the leader of the gang say: "Lets
kill him." He was deterred from doing
this, Phllpot. says, by the other robbers.
Albert Etep, the other watchman, was
caught on the steps of the exchange build
ing. The robbers went up to Estep and
addressed him by name. Thinking it was
a friend. Estep was taken unawares, and
when a revolver was thrust Into his face,
was not in shape for defense. Under
threats of death he was forced to go to
the composing room, where he was also
bound and gagged.
Night Fireman L. W. Clark was taken
unawares in the steam plant of the Ex
change Building. He resisted and was
badly beaten with a sand bag before sub
dued. He was also taken to the compos
ing room and left bound and gagged with
his two companions.
About midnight one of the robbers was
left to guard the three captives, while the
other five went into the bank, which is
located on the first floor of the Exchange
Building, near the center. With nitro
glycerine the robbers blew open the steel

Many persons find themselves breaking

They do not use the right kind of food

caused by the kind of work they do.
For instance, any one who thinks, em

brain wears away little tine microscopic

to the amount of work done.
This Is a natural process, but those
little particles must be replaced each day

She overlooks what she receives. Now a single

robbers. They took all the other curren
cy and coin, amounting to about 000,

signaled to the one who was guarding the
captive watchmen and fireman. This man
joined his companions.
Five minutes after the robber guard
left the composing-room Estop, who had
not been bound securely, worked loose
and released Clark and Phllpot. This
was about 4 o'clock. Estop then ran to
the telephone and called up Charles T.
Jones, general manager of the stock-
yards, and Informed him of the robbery.
President C. Gordon Knox, of the bank,
was also called and he soon arrived at
the stockyards. Mr. Knox said If the
robbers had made their haul the night
before they would have secured about
$10,000 more than they got.

KALAMAZOO. Mich. Jan. 7. An
attempt to bribe State Food Commis
sioner W. B. Snow, of this city. In order J
to prevent prosecutions from the sale of

BLAMES THE TURKS.
Why the Bulgrnrlnnn Have "Sot Cap
tured the Brigands.
NEW YORK, Jan. 7. A messenger who
has Just returned from the brigands re
ports that Miss Stone and Mme. Tsllka
were well 36 hours ago. cables the Sama
kov, Bulgaria, correspondent of the Jour
nal and American.
Consul-General Dickinson has returned
to Sofia, and an early release Is ex
pected. The present obstacle Is Mr.
Dickinson's refusal to pay the cash be
fore Miss Stone's release. The brigands'
demand is first the ransom, then the re- ;
lease. It ls said, however, in explana-
tlon. that they never violate the recog-
nlzed brigand code of honor, always free- I
lng the captive when the money ls paid. I
The brigands want the ransom deposited j
on the ground within Bulgarian Jurisdic- '
tlon. They then will undertake to re-
lease Miss Stone within Turkish juris
diction. They want to be on the Bul
garian side after the close of negotia
tions, but this condition ls not urgent.
The district Governor of Samakov says
the snow is forcing the brigands to como
to terms. If not released before the
middle of the month the brigands will go
into permanent Winter quarters, and ne-
gradually worn away, day after day, by
brain work, and the individual does not
take food from which It can be rebuilt,
there is a steady downhill process going
on In the body.
