FOUND HIS FORTUNE BY
A LUCKY CHANCE.
Chicago Man Was About to Give Up
in lespalr Wheu He Accidently,
Unearthed a Gold Mine.
Florence; Colo.. July 7. Frank An
derson, a Chicago man. has made one
of the luckiest mining strikes in the
history of Colorado bonanzas. Three
mouths ago Anderson could not have
raised the money to buy a square meal.
Today he Is wealthy and is making
preparations to marry into one of the
finest families In the state and spend
a Tortune on a wedding trip. !
Anderson arrived In Florence. Colo.,
just three months ago. He rode in on
a 1hx car, without money, ragged, dis
couraged, and hungry. ' lie struck out
with a party of green prospectors, and
for a month rambled over the mount
ains not far from Florence In search
of some place where they iruagim-d
that gold ought to be sticking out of
SALEM, OREGON, FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1900.
the ground, ready to be. cut' off j in
chunks and sent to the United States
mint. They failed to find It and
most of them gave up and straggled
back .to town. Anderson and a few
others had more grit and kept tramp
ing and prospecting. ; ;
3 One day, when they stopiied to fry
I some trout and boil coffee for dinner.
Anderson had strolled, along a rock in
advance of the rest. A piece of rock
at the side of the road attracted his
attention, and he . stopped to pk-k it
up. It had a few specks of coppery -looking
staff In it. and Anderson, took
It to be Iron pyrites.
"I've struck it rich, be said, laugh
ing, as he passed the chunk around.
"Yes. fool's gold," laughed the boys.
Anderson put the rock In his pocket,
and occasionally, he took it out - and
turned it around in the sunshine to
make it glisten. He got to thinking
about the matter, and finally It oc
curred to him that he knew really
nothing either of iron pyrites or of
gold. He said nothing to the rest of
the party, but In a few days be came
back to Florence and began to inquire
about the veins of ore in the locality
where he had found the rock. He
was told that from time to time pieces
of rich "float" had been picked up in
the neighborhood. Practical miners
were of the opinion that there was a
vein somewhere near there that would
prove a good gold producer if dlseov
ered. Many prospectors had ma de,
search for it. but had finally come to
the conclusion that it was well up
near the top of the mountain spur- and
had been covered up by the accum-la-tious
of soli. , -
Anderson had no money, and had no
credit and knew practically nothing
of mining. He made up his mind to
find the vein or to starve' In the at
tempt, lie got hold of a pick and an
old shovel and Tstarted ont. For a
week he searched the top and siTes
of the hill with minute care, but to no
purpose. He lived on a little salt potis
that" he had got (n Florence, and once
of twice found a few potatoes In a
mountain patch, and caught a few
trout. lie decided at last to give up
As he walked along the road at the
foot of the hill close to where he had
'picked up the piece of float he stuck
his shovei into the dirt cariessly,
knocking up a bit of turf. - lie caught
a gleam of ore, and, stooping he saw
that he had struck the lost vein of
gold.? It was plain enough, even to the
eyes of a man who knew little, about
mining. Prospectors had undoubtedly
walked over the velu a thousand times,
as It was barely concealed In the grass
at the edge of a much traveled wagon
road. -:;"-'v. - ' --.'' : , '
Anderson was wildly excited. He
managed to get out a few samples of
the rock and hurried back to Florence.
He walked Into a grocery store where
he had a slicut acquaintance with the
owner and called him asld. . ,
"I have located a gold mine", said
Anderson, "and T haven't got money
enough to buy a grub box and tools."
"Where is it sald the storekeeper.
"Not so fast, partner," remarked An
derson. "Will you set up some crackers
and cheese on the strength of what
I've already told your
The grdt-erymau said that he would.
and the layout was spread on the top
of a sugar barrel. Anderson ate with
the apiwtlte of a man half starved,
and when he had finished be borrowed
some of the Storekeeper's tobacco, fill
ed his pipe, and was ready to talk bus
iness. : '. '
"I've found the gold vein there on
tlie hills," remarked Anderson. ZL?C
located it pat, and I want the money
to get the ore out. All I ask or you
now is to fix me up a grub box and
get me some tools. Give me enough to
eat for two weeks, and I'll let you in
on this deal on a good basis."
All right; grub's cheap," remarked
the storekeeper. Take your pick."
The two partners had the samples
that Anderson had brought over in hi
jKK-keta assayed. , and - the ore . was
found to net to the ton. r
Anderson began digging away and
shipping the ore to Pueblo. He is now
rk-b man awl -eoiniag money every
day. The shaft is down about v fifty
feet, and twenty men are working In
the mine and taking out from fifteen
to twenty tons a day. Anderson Is
looked upon here as a man who will
take care of his money; soler. shrewd.
Industrious and unpretentious. He Is
engaged to a pretty young woman at
Canyon City, and has employed an
architect to put up a handsome resi
dence for him there.
