What i believed to be tho long-sought-for

pecting by A. 11. Enycart of Jackson
ville, n placer miner,' engaged in pro

taken from the pan Saturday, and
nccording to report the other pun
washed netted $30 each in gold. If
early expectation increase, a gold
strike can be expected.
In his development work Knyenrt
progressed upon the theory that tho
original bed, or one of the fork of

that n landslide a century or bo ago
