FORMATION OF NUGGETS
Some Ides. on Gold Distribution
Mr. 14. J. A. Widmar, of Hreoken
ridge. Col., gives in the Mining
World tho following in conclusion
on bis idea of tho source of the ling
get: "Gold is heavy, and settles at
the first opportunity at tho bottom of
a stream, unless a stratum of stilT
clay prevents its reaching the bed
rock. Tho nuggets and coarse gold
are found nearest tho lode whence
the gold ramp, when the topography
has been of a nature to alTord them a
resting place. Farther down stream
the lighter flakes and small grains
have been deposited, as the stream
widened and the force of the current
abated. Fine flake and " flour" gold
is often carried many miles down
stream by tho force of the water,
which keeps them turning over and
over and sliding along with the muddy
matter of floods or freshets. Metallic
gold, wires ami thick gold leaves have
also been found in chunks of lead ore ;
also wires in copper and leaves in iron
ore in the lode mines of F.irncoinb
Hill, showing plainly that the lead,
copjior or iron was found or deposited
after the metallic gold bad been made
in the veins. Such siM'ciinciis are
much more worthy of the real scient
ists' simulation and research than the
few battered and partly "rusty" gold
placer nuggets that may fall under
their observation. The gold in the
plucerB come from lodes.
Vision Is Not Always a Proof Thai
the Eve Is Perfect.
The science of optic and refraction
havo dovelnitrcl and proven it a fact
that a perfect ej-o never fails in its
vision for distance. Even though a
jHTsoii may have perfect distant
vision they may be compelling it
through an imperfect eye. The eye
being controlled by tho brain means a
constant brain strain if the eye is in
the least im)Mrfuct. The lirain in
turn draws upon the nerve system to
regain tho strength necessarily Jused
to get perfect vision ; therefore, the
brain or nerves are generally affected
before the vision, which only grows
bad ls cniise of loss of H)wer tocnnicl
perfect vision through an imicrfect
eye. Now, as tho perfect eye never
fails for distant vision, it is the re
frationist's business to make it perfect
with glasses, -and and then it should
never fail. Why' Because it has
been made iN rfoet. If your glasses are

ROSEBURG STAGE HOLD-UP
Regular Annuel Robbery Oc
curred Lexst Week,
Within 2,')0 yards of the spot whore
it was robbed last winter and with
the same driver, J. A. Sawyers, tho
Koseburg-Myrtlo Point stage was held
up Thursday night of last week, about
9 o'clock, seven miles this side of
Camas Valley. Two men wearing
white masks did tiie job and secured
Pl.'.oO for their trouble. The U. a
mail was not molested. The stage
carried throe passengers : F. Loe, of
Cylon, Wisconsin; Wm. McOrath,
of New Richmond, Wis., and H. H.
Scovel, of tho Loyd-Scovel Iron Co,
San Francisco. These men were the
victims of the holdup.
Driver Sawyers was ordered to halt
by a man in shirt sleeves who stood in
the road and leveled a revolver at bis
lersoii. Aa soon as Sawyers complied
with the command lie and the three
passengers were told to climb out of
tho vehicle and lino up iu the road,
which they did. Here Sawyers was
detected ill tho act of reaching for bis
revolver in is hip pocket The high
waymaii promptly relieved Mr. Saw
yers of the woaiou, ' at the samo time
admonishing tho driver novor to reach
for a gun unless ho intends to use it.

learn from ono of tho passongers. Loe
and McUrath carried drafts, but those
the robbers did not offor to take.
Onco the robber was on tho point of
taking Leo's watch, but an earnest
plea from its owner saved it. Scovel
also curried a watch which was hand-
1 back to hint after lining taken be

their work by ordering tho driver and

INSURANCE FOR DRUGGISTS
Protected From Blackme.il sxnd
Mistakes In Mixing Drufs.
One of ibe latest tilings in the fidelity
and casualty line Is to Insure druggists
against wbut Is called the wrong pre
scription mun. For $10 or 123 a year
several companies down town guaran
tee druggists against damages arising
from mistakes In compounding drugs.
One of tho most successful of these
companies has UoO chemists of New
York, Jersey City, Newark and New
Haven on Its list of subscribers.
The Idea of Insuring druggists
gainst loss from their own mistakes
originated In tbe belief of a number
of leading pharmacists that they were
the victims of a gang of rogues who
made a practice of pretending that
wrong medicines knd Iieen given to
some member of their families, some
times wltb erlous results. Tbe gang
was partly broken up by the fidelity
company which first assumed the re
sponsibility of protecting druggists at
$S a year each. An officer of this com
pany says that there are fully 1,000
mistakes a year In the compounding of
"While there sre so many genuine
mistakes," he continued, "there are
many alleged errors In mixing medi

Invented for the sale purpose of ex
torting money from tbe retail drug
gists. Our company guarantees to pro
tect druggists against themselves, but
our main desire Is to prevent fraud on
the part of those who want to black
mail one of our clients for something
be has not done.
"It Is a serious matter to mnko a
mistake In mixing drugs, but It Is fre
quently even mora serious to tho drug
gist to have It uolsed about that such
a mistake was msde. I have known
chemists to be forced out of business
by the publicity given to the fact that
they made a blunder. Dishonest per
sons have recognised tbe fear that
druggists have of an exposure of this
kind and have taken advantage of the

engaged In tin business of bleeding
'Htlll, there Is nothing really remark
