On Saturday tliTe nrrivod t tli
Gilinnn Hotel in thin city, a plainly or
ra'.hor poorly drossoil, cadaverous look
ing man alout fifty yean of age who
took a dollar room. Soon thereaftnr it
was whispered that tho new arrival
was Thomas Ctush, tho man who had
sold tho Drum Lumniond mine, in
Montana, for $1,CCO,000. Half of
this a mount is xaid to he deposited in
thHrt-ITittlM.hl Tank In this city,
and tlm other half in a Montana hank.
It was noticed during tho million
aire's prenene in tho houv that he
spent no money hi could pottsiMy
avoid. On Sunday hit ot&ed wliero
thn Catholic Church was, and, instead
of hiring a carrian and traveling as
becomes a man of ho much wealth, he
trudgiil on foot to tlm church and hack.
On Tu'isday ho left for hi Iiuiiih in
Yesterday a gentleman was met who
knew Mr. Cruse well, and ho said:
"Yes, I am wull acquainted with him.
For th past twenly-ljvo year he has
lienn a. prospector in MonUna and
Idaho, and hm present wealth is dun to
the fact that h is ono of tho.sn fellows
that get hold and never let go.
Why, it's twenty years sincn he
struck tlm mine that hn Knld for more
than a million and a half. In order
to develop it hn would work for a
while for others to ohtain a Ktaku, for
gruh, tools and powder. Then he
would put in his time on the mine un
til his funds went exhausted.
Finally he struck pay dirt and, his
enthusiasm knew no hounds, and for
three or four years hefore lie sold oul
he madit a living out of it. How?
Why, ly extracting a few hundred
pounds of ore and tnking it to his
cahin and reducing it to a pulp in a
mortar and washing it out in a bread
pan. You sen the mine; although
rich, could not he properly developed
Deiiig of a secretive disposition, lie
had a door ut tha entrance of his hid
den treasure whicb ho kept' locked at
all times, and tint miners used to call
the place 'Crush's Prison.",
Tho Btoryof the great richness of
the miiut spread far and wido, aud hig
offers were made for it. ' Among those
who mado an offer, for the initio was
Mackay of Bonanza fume, hut the
hardy proiipocter knew' full well the
value of his find, and would not soli
until he et his figure. Cruso wns a
stayer from away hack, and don'l you
forget it. Had. it. been me I- would
have sold out long ago, ' v
i Finally an English nyndicato com
inonced to anglo with tin lucky ' pros
pector, and at ouo timo negotiations
reicluid such a stage' that that tho pa
pers wore drawn iipnd read to Cruso,
who was also represented by his attor
ney, A clause in tho agreement was
read by which the purchaiiers could buy

If you don't thu jig is up," sententious
ly said the man who had waited twen
ty years for a purchaser.
"Well, but that's a mere formality,
and It'js not likely the company will
want to freeze you out," said the rep
resentative of English capital. This
aort of expostulation was kept up un
til the hands of ihu clock marked the
expiration of the five fateful minutes.
The jig's up," alowly and sternly
said Cruse, -
And indeed it was, and the failure
toacoejit to the request made by Cruse
cost SlOO.OOO extra, and it was sever
il months before ho resumed negotia
tions. Had the clause been stricken

Among the moonshiners now under
arrest in Nashville is Miss Betty
Suii'li, of Fentress county. Miss Betty
is described by a reporter as "tho very
perfection of physical beauty." She is
only twenty one, but she is up to snuff.
For several yeurs psist she has le?n
running a "blind tiger" in Fentress
county. The blind tiger is a very sim
ple arrangement. You walk into the
hallway of Miss Betty' cottage aud
pull out a draw neatly fitted into tho
wall. In the draw you find the fol
lowing words written on slips of paper
pnsti-d ou tho bottom of the drawer;
"Beer, Whisky, Applo Briudy, Peach
and Honey, Toddy Sour." You put a
dime on cither of tho words aud push
the drawer in. When you pull it out
again you find in it a schooner of beer
or ulass of liquor. The fair proprietor
tress of the blind tiger is in danger of
becoming quite a belle in Nashville.
She has not been sent to jail, but re
