E traits to W hich an American Pros
pector Was Reduced in Mexico.
Living in Mexico is often a disas
trous experience to the foreigner who is
not acquainted with localities and cus
toms. In the case of John Bascon and
his companion, an Englishman named
Martin Hayes, their experience was
such, but it is also interesting. In con
versation with Mr. Bascon that gentle
man stated the following to an Enter
prise reporter:
Not long ago I came up from Guate
mala with an Englishman named Mas
tln Hayes, and we had three burros
laden with goods. We prospected all
along the line to Tonelado, and stopped
for one week with an Indian at Tehu-
antepec. While there we learned that
in the district up to Tonelado there was
plenty of gold, as another Englishman
had passed through there with $8,000,
which he had panned out at a certain
point somewhere in the region of -San
Pablo, in Oaxaca. We traced the gold
along the streams for sixty miles, and
reached as far as San Miguel. We
were very hungry by this time, having
run short of provisions, and, going
across the mountains, were told that
we should be careful, as banditti were
numerous. Soon after two men met us
not far from San Miguel, and the both
had rifles. They ordered us to halt,
but I pulled a revolver and took their
guns away from them and marched
them on In front of us. When we ar
rived at San Miguel one of them enter
ed a complaint before the jese politico
charging us with, holding them up, but
the jese knew the men too well to list
en to their story, and the result is one
of them Is still in Jail at that place.
When we left San Miguel we secur
ed a mozo to guide u to where the
Englishman referred to found his gold,
but when we got there the mozo would
not stay, as It was known the English
man had returned and died there. We
found his skeleton, with the legs and
arms eaten off, and the mozo, being
fearful he would see the ghost of the
dead, left us to ourselves. We went
across a river and camped in the ad
jacent woods. Along the stream we
prospected for gold, and in two weeks
we found gold which went about 25
cents to the pan. We remained there
about six months, and all that time we
lived on monkey meat and green ba
nanas, and both, too, without salt. Just
think of it! Nothing but monkeys, and
occasionally a fowl or two, and not a
tortilla or common hot cake. Well, sir,
my partner, Martin Hayes of London,
England, died four months after from
the privations suffered during that
time, and I don't suppose his wife or
family ever heard of It But we got
some gold, all right, and monkey meat
would have been all right for me, if we
only had some salt Chihuahua En

"Do you want to Just run this over

her head, he hastily folded the sheet
which bore the marks of hours of

which he sealed with trembling expedi
tion, and then leaned back in his chair
with an air of relief.
"I was afeard you'd want to read it
and then most likely 'twould be all to

wrote he didn't mind a word misspelled

Th Evidence Is Furnished by the Sec
retary of the Board of Trade of
Wellsburs;, New York, and
Cannot Be Doubted.
The popular secretary of the. Wells
burg, N. Y., board of trade is Mr. W.
J. Dalton, and his statement to a re
porter regarding one of the most im
portant events of his life carries with it
the greatest weight It is unusual for a
person to be afflicted from childhood
with rheumatism Dut it is even
wonderful that there is a remedy so
exactly suited to the tratment of this
stubborn disease that one hundred
doses were sufficient to eradicate
it in a case of twenty years' stand
ing. The proof that such a remedy
is within the reach of ail rheumatic
sufferers is found in Mr. Dalton's own
words. He says:
'I had been troubled with rheuma
tism all my life, even when a boy.
It attacked me in the legs, arms and
shoulders. The pain in the latter
was particularly severe. I, of course,
took medicine for It, but did not
obtain permanent relief. One day
about three years ago while reading
a newspaper, I saw an advertisement
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale
People and determined to give them
a trial. I had taken but three boxes
of the pills when the trouble, which
had been my affliction from child
hood, entirely disappeared. .
"About a year later I had another
attack of rheumatism which was
brought on by working in a damp
place. I remembered well what Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People
had done for me, so I immediately
purchased some. Strangely enough,
just three boxes again cured me, and
I have been entirely free from rheu
matism ever since. I have told a num
ber of people about Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for Pale People, and they
have taken them with most bene
ficial results."

How Tracks Were Constructed and
Trains Ban Sixty Years Asro.
Irving D. Cook, who lives near South
Byron, recently repaired a barn on the
old Cook homestead that was built
many years ago. In taking out a gran
ary, some timbers found In Its construc
tion were recognized by Mr. Cook as a
part of the first old New York Central
Railroad roadbed that was built to By
ron, which was for a time the terminus,
about sixty years ago. These white
oak sticks were 3 by 4 Inches, as sound
as when first used, and were what the
first strap rail was nailed or spiked on.
The imprint of the two-Inch iron strap
la plainly seen. Mr. Cook's recollection
ot the early railroading Is very clear,
aa the road crosses his farm.
He says ties were first laid, and on
these were placed long stringers, which
were of any kind of timber .that could
be obtained from farmers near. by.
These stringers were hewn on the upper
side, and on the under side were
notched where they crossed each tie.
On these stringers and running in the
same direction white oak scantlings
were fastened.' When the ends of the
strips of Iron met, a short piece was
placed so that the ends of the rail, if
they might be called that, would not In
dent the wood.
There were no section bosses In those
days, and handcars were unknown.
The first repair gang consisted of three
men, who carried a few spikes, a chisel,
an auger, a hand saw, etc. in a handled
basket The few heavy tools, like a crow
bar, adze and shovel,' were carried on
the men's shoulders. The men worked
as they pleased, and during the hot
summer days It was no uncommon
thing for the gang to spend hours in
the shade of Mr. Cook's sugar bush, ad
joining the track. Trains were infre
quent, and a roadmaster's pony was. un
known. ,
Among the locomotives first used
for freight and passenger service were
the Louis Brooks, .Whittlesey. Asa
Sprague and No. 4, the last being
known as' the Iron Engine, because no
wood was used in its construction ex
cept in the cab. These engines had only
one drive-wheel on each side. The first
Fourth of July after the road was con
structed and in running order was ob
served by the railroad company by fir
ing a cannon from the rear platform of
the last car on approaching stations.
lhe passenger cars were short and
much like the body of a stage coach.
Some of these passenger cars had an
upper story, and1 from this upper deck
Mr. Cook saw Martin Van Buren climb
down to shake hands with a crowd
when, be was running for the presi
dency. The conductor was then called
a collector, and passed, along on the out
side of the cars on a running board that
extended the entire length of the car.
The putting of names on engines was
discontinued twenty-five or thirty years
ago, the last to run on the western divi
son being the Dean Richmond, which
was No. 147; the Azariah Boody, James
