Treas., L. H. Hazard.
The club has been considering the
question of enlarging the agricultur
al prospects contributory to tho city.
2,500 acres of this land belong to the
Russ interests. They have offered
$18 per acre to have tho land cleared
and as no one has seemed eager tQ
take up the work at this price, the
commercial club has determined to
give tho matter a try out. They reas
on that if they can do tho clearing at
a profit there will be no lack of labor
to take up the work once the matter
of profit is demonstrated. They plan
to take forty acres as an experiment.
In discussing ways and means to
undertake the work, two plans sug
gested themselves. One was to ad
vertise for bids and to make up the
deficit, which in that case would be
definite, by private subscription.
The second plan is to employ a fore
man and a gang of experienced slash
ers to go at this work and demon
strate just how much the clearing of
the lands will cost.
Such a move on the part of the
commercial club at the county seat
would lje one way to show public en
terprise1 but at this distance it would
seem that the land owners would be
getting the soft end of the deal.

Gallon and his partner, Wilkerson,

searching for gold. Gallon has made
a lucky strike and tried to conceal the
fact from Wilkerson, who already
suspects his partner is not giving him
a square deal.
Tho partners are sitting around the
camp fire one evening when Wilker
son suddenly becomes thirsty. After
taking innumerable drinks of wntcr
he falls asleep. Gallon walks off some
distance from the sleeper and starts
drawing the plans of his great find
but every now and again he furtively
turns his eyes in tho direction of Wil
kerson, fearing he may awaken and
discover his secret.
Wilkerson awakens, observes Gal

Quietly he crawls on hands and

sheriff that he and his partner were

The sheriff accompanied by his dep

loon and calls for volunteers. A crowd
soon collects. Out of the saloon
comes a half drunken boy, who cries
"I'm game" jumps on a horse and the
posse rides off.
As they gallop up the hill, the
drunken boy is thrown to the ground
when his horse stumbles. The others
ride on ahead. The boy lies dazed,
The horse gets on ts feet and whin

Through the brush he distinguishes
a faint form. It is a man. Could it

He draws his revolver.
"I'm Wilkerson." replies a voice.
Wilkerson confides his story to the
boy and ask him for help. The boy is
willing and the two go slowly on.
At the camp the sheriff and depu
ty find no one. The sheriff returns
and orders Gallon's arrest. The boys
bind him. Evening comes on tho

to the mines which he begins develop

writes a notation to the effect that he

his lost mines.
About this time Gallon writes to a
New York stock broker named Gate3,
asking him for advice relative to
