' A Mail Carrier's Experience,
(From Albany Herald, Mar. 12.)
The snowstorm, which has contin
ued in litful gusts over Oregon for the
past few days, amounted to a heavy
snowfall in the mountains, piling up
drifts to enormous depths. .
Gerald Heath, who carries the mail
and runs a pack train from Gates to
the Lawler mines at Quarlzvllle, had
an experience in the storm which he
would not care to repeat. On Monday
he left Quartzvllle for Gates with a
pack train of seven horses used In tak
ing supplies to the mines. He also
had the mall from Anidem which Is
the name of the poetofllce at Quartz
vllle. But little snow comparatively
bad (alien at the mines, but when he
reached the summit he found that a
furious suowstorm bad been raging
and the trail was almost impassable.
To turn back, however, was almost as
dangerous as to proceed. So he con
tinued forward. He managed to reach
the half way cabin and spent the
night there. The next day the storm
continued with unabated vigor, and
the trail was burled in places under
15 to 20 feet of snow. He found, it
would be impossible to take bis pack
horses further, and after much hard
work he succeeded in getting them to
a sheltered place in a ravine, where
they, could live. He then made a pair
of snowshoes and started for Gates.
In the meantime the people at that
place had, become ajarmed tor his
safety and two parties had started on
snowshoes to search for him. Yester
day morning they met him on the
trail, and returned with him to Gates.
He was nearly exhausted, having
spent three nights in the storm In the
mountains with scant provisions. The
mail carrier is a man of remarkable
nerve and endurance, who has bad a
lite-long experience in the mountains
in all sorts of weather, and Is familiar
with the use of snowshoes, otherwise
be would certainly have perished, as
several others have done in a blinding
suowstorm in that lonely mountain
As soon as the storm abates the
bones will be brought out.
The Santiam Mines,
There is every indication of greater
activity than evei In the Santisra mm
inir district when spring opens. The
Alliany Mining and Milling Co., com
posed of business men of this city who
have expended some $30,000 or $40,000
in developing their properties. In the
Quar'.zville district, have consummated
a deal with W. F. Robertson and
others, of Portland, whereby they have
contracted, leased and bonded to the
Portland company, their mines in
eluding seven claims, a ten stamp
quartz mill, saw mill, engine and min
ittg machinery complete and ready for
work. The sum of $1000 was paid on
the contract yesterday. The Portland
company has, by the terms of the con
tract, one year in which to complete
tlie purchase. They also agree to pay
the Albany company $1 per ton fur all
ore worked. The total price to be paid
for tbe mlues bas not been divulged
A force of men will be put to work at
once placing tho machinery, which
has been Idle for a year or more, in
readiness for operatiou, and about
April 1st It is announced active work
will be resumed In these mines. At

A Counterfeiter Caught. ,
On Monday, February 15th, Harold
Marqulsee, of Utlca, N. Y., wus arrest
ed In Syracuse, N. Y., on a warrant
sworn out by tlie Dr. Williams' Medi
cine Co., charging him with forgery.
On the 15th, of pecember Marqulsee
visited a photo-engraver in Syracuse,
saying he was the representative of tlie
Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,fand ar
ranged for the making of a full set of
plates for the direction sheets, labels,
etc., of the famous Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Palu People. News of this
reached the home office, and no time
was lost in arranging for bis arrest
when he should return for tbe plates.
He returned on the 15th, and was ac
cordingly arrested aud placed in jail In
Syracuse to await examination.
This arrest proved to be an impor
tant one. In addition to various plun
der, such as medical books, typewriters,
rugs, etc., found in Marquisee's trunk
when arrested, the police also found
counterfeit coin both in tlie trunk and
on hia person; and in a sonrch of bis
apartments at Utica found a complete
outfit for counterfeiting, consisting of
crucibles, bellows, nickel, lead, bis
muth, antimony, a small blacksmith
forge, a charcoal furnace, and several
piaster-of-paris molds. The United
States marshals want him just as soon
as the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co. are
through with bim, and, no doubt, he
will be sentenced for a long period.
In selecting Dr, Williams' Pink Pills
for bis counterfeiting operations, be
showed his knowledge of the proprie
tory medicine business; for these pills
are In such great demand that they
are easily sold at any drug store in the
United States. His Bcneme was to
work the country druggists and Bell
his imitatious at a discount of from
3 per xul to 5 per cent, explaining the
reduced price by the fact that he had
picked them up in small lots aud at a
discount from dealers who were over
stocked. By working fast and making
long jumps, he would have secured
many hundreds of dollars in a short
time. The proprietors of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills are most fortunate to have
caught tbe rogue, before he had fairly
started, aud to have thus kept these
spurious goods out of the market.
