I owners hnd ojiened the ledge with ;
i two extensive tunnels, besides sev

and had exposed a very large body
of free gold quartz, nisaying from ;
f 2 to $ lofil jier ton. The only
moans at presant employed to ex- j
tract the gold from the quartz is an
arastra, which produced about f 100

With improved machinery the mine
could be made to yield u handsome
dividend; but as the water to run
the arastra only holds out about
fifty days each season the yield is I
limited. " j

extending to a great depth, is from (
three to thirty feet wide, and can

ground for fully 15.000 feet. It is
from this ledge that tho rich phi-

A HOURIULE DEATH.

The most horrible and painful
means of self-destruction within tho
ken of the human mind would be
death by burning; but such seems
to have been the means employed
by Mrs. John Lane on Saturday af
ternoon last, says the Walla W'alla
Statesman, wherein tho victim do- j
lilteratoly jet her clothing on lire i
and was burned to n erisn without i
any apparent attempt at escajve or
alarm when the scorching names
se.-thed her quivering flesh.
The particulars are meager. Mrs.
i .a lie ih in(i vvue oi joiiii i .ano, wen
known in this city. Their residence
is located alnnit eleven miles below
the city, near Whitman station.
About three-quarters of a mile from
Mr. Lane's place lives John Swan
son and wife, the latter a daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Lane, and in the
oppoiitc direction, distant about
100 yards, is a small cabin of one
room, owned by Patrick O'Connor.
On the afternoon in question Mr.
Swansou noticed heavy smoke issu
ing from the O'Connor cabin and
ran toward it. In passing the house
of Mrs Lane he stopped and hsjked
in at the window and noticed that
everything was in order, but Mrs.
Lane was not there. Heaching the
O'Connor cabin, ho found it a
smouldering mass of eo.us, and at
the back portion was the charred
remains of a human body, the bead
lying against the wall and the feet
jHiinting toward the door.
As he states in his testimony, Mr.
Swanson suspicioncd that the !ody
was that of Mrs. Lane, and imme
diately proceeded back to his house,
hitched up his team and came to
Walla Walla in search of Mr Lane,
who had departed early in the
morning to see to the repair of a
threshing machine. Arriving here
he notified sherill' Mcl'arland, Dr.
Keylor and Coroner Hlaloek. The
latter being ill, deputized John A.
Taylor, and late Saturday evening
the piuty arrived on tiie scene.
The body was found to be lying as
described, the flesh burned com
pletely oil', and unrecognizable. An
inquest was held at midnight which
developed the fact that there was no
i ii. i ..I
! apparent cause for suicide, as the wife
and liusliaiid hail lived on the best of
terms and the relations of family
and neighbors were most pleasant,
at times the whole family of father,
mother, daughter and son-in-law
living together. At one time sever
al years ago, during a severe illness
the deceased threatened to take her
life, but it was said in rather a jok
ing manner and no attention was
given to tho threat. During the
morning of the fatal day Mrs.
Swausou had called and invited her
mother to visit her, and received an
alliru.ativc answer in a cheerful
tone of voice. Heforo his departure

es many to feel prejudiced against
them, "but they do this from tho
true American principle that nobo
dy should place his light under thu
bushel, ami so far they strictly ful
fill all they promise "and, further
more, during this w hole period of
three long years, not one single com
plaint has been heard, and hun
dreds have praised them as relia
ble and experienced physicians of
marvelous skill and knowledjie, no
liody will think that wo (nil: pro

no hesitancy in lecoinineiuling them
heartily. Physicians that stand so
successfully a three years' test'
without one single voice being rais
ed against them have proven most
thoroughly Unit they are worthy of
the public confidence ivM)od ill
