has afforded cause for : considerable
newspaper gossip In times gone by,
created a new sensation last week.
While on a train going north from
Jacksonville, Florida, a freak took
him to leave the train. He carried
out the idea, getting off at the depot
In Richmond, leaving bis berth in tbe
sleeping car In almost a nude condition.
As bis absence from tbe car was dis
covered soon after the train left Rich-
moud, and his boots and a portion of
bis clothing were left behind, it was
thought he had fallen from the train
In one of his "spells, and of course
must have been killed. But he was
found in the depot wliere lie had con
cealed nimseir, andtakencare or. ub

From Southern Oregon,
The following paragraph is from'a
Grave creek, correspondent of tlie
Jacksonville Sentinel, giving interest
ing information with regard to the
quartz discovered in Grave Creek
Miuitig District, organized Feb. 15th,
1ST5, in Josephine county'. Oregon:
Many quartz lodes have been known
to exist within tills district for years,
but have had hut little attention paid
to tliein until the recent quartz exelte
menton Galice Creek, sine which men
liave been prospecting in every direc
tion for quartz, which has led to the
discovery o several promi-dng leads in
tlie- vicinity of the mouth ot Grave
Creek. The most Westerly lead dis
covered, and known as the' Keystone,
crosses Grave Creek close to it month;
crosses the point of a high ridge a ml
runs into Rogue River, following the
bed ot the river fo'r some distance ; and
if it appears again, which it more than
likely does it will appear on the south
of tlie river, some distance west ot where
the Yank and other leads -ross. This
lead, though tx-ingnext to the last tak
en up. is now claimed for seven or eight
miles, nearly all of, which i distance it
ciiii be traced by bold cropping.- and
measures where discovered 18- feet be
tween walls. The quartz of this lode
is ofa very tine quality, is very full of
snlplmrets. ;hi1 in general apnea ra nee,
is second to none that I have seen in
the Gal ice Creek District. ; The next
ledge east and close alongside of the
Keystone. Is the Ophir, the rocky of
which shows well in many 'place, hut
1 a darker colored quartz, having rather
a greyish cast, aial in many places a
rusty appearance. This lead is quite
large, but is not taken tor ; so great a
distance, as its cropping are not .-vsVlis-tinct
as the Keystone. The nest'Ea-'t
of the Ophir is the Mammoth. The
quartz of this lead is similar to that ot
the Keystone, and is claimed for a con
siderable distance. The next on the
East ot this is the Grev Eaffle. This is
a large lead, but. has been prospected
hut little; tlie cropping j look well.
The next, and most Easterly lead on
which claims have been located is tlie
Yank, having been traced through from
wtiere it crosses ifngtte liiver to where
it crosses Grave Creek, a ; distance of
about five miles, and is now claimed
several miles North of Grave Creek.
l'he quartz on this lotle looks well for
cropping, and the lead isi large and
well denned. All the rock' I hare seen
fn m the above leads compare fa vorably
with the lock of Galico t,rtek at a cor
reiondinff distance Ixdowthe surface.
and in niv opinion are hut a continua
tion ot tlie same lends; ami if so. the
Galice Creek District will have no per
centage over this, mid It remains to be
determined which is the! richest, if
there is any difference. j
