The hard toil which has been incident to the amassment of these fortunes is not so soon forgotten; neither is it in the heart of man or any set of men to place an investment where it goes into the pockets of many without a due return. And hard indeed Is the labor of capitalists and many a sleepless hour indeed which is spent in the plans for the creation of a safe-return for the investment and to give labor the eiiinloviiient that it de ma i two Struck it Rich. Some men at work on the Can property known as the May group, an-l lo'hteil about nine miles wist of Custer, recently struck a very rich vein ot ore. at a distance of only thirty feet below the surface.

We have come here to stay; my company Is disposed to do everything that is just and fair, and I believe everything from this time on, will be entirely satisfactory to all parties concerned. Our Kaolin clay property, the product or which we shall ship to eastern market for the making of porcelain ware, is looming up all right. We have six men working there new, which force will also be more than doubled in a t?hort time, as the clay has already been accepted by eastern manufacturers aa "A 1" for the purpose and we already have a demand for It that our output for some time to come will be insufficient to supply.
