Old Prospector Clements Dispensed Them to Travelers Until Death Claimed Him. Old John J. Clements of the San Gabriel canyon is dead. With his passing goes the leading disciple In spiritualism of that wild region, and the campers and occupants of tho stage enronte to the different points of the canyon will miss this old dent- y.on of the wild, who was wont to stop the stage and offer them the "waters of life" from his bucket and (Upp".r. Clements lived in the mountains and canyons for twenty-eight yearn, prospecting and picking up a procnrldu? living, becoming more and more n bo- Hover In occult things us his lonely days passed. Only a few hours bo- Tore he was found dead last Friday morning of heart, disease- In hl» cabin, ho hulled some passing horsonusn and offered them his spring wntor and preached to them a little jwrmon of his own concerning tho spirit* which presided ovor his existence- in hi 1 ! lonely home. Cleiunnta came from Natlck, M.u- sachusett.s, whoro his wife and daughter still live. A telegram son! by HK> undertaker to his wife met wlt.h the direction to bury the body lioro at. her expense. In all tho time ho livod in the canyon, none of the chance associates among the national or ..pampers ever heard him apeak of his reUvtlves or former homo !lfe. The canyonfi were '">-bl8 /,, menta proapacted fpr gold to th6 directions which he said he received from the Almighty Power. He at one time worked a claim In tho old Garcia mine region, and had sqvimil claims during hla life In tho canyon. It was a revelation from God, !io said, which told him to dig down uti- 1,11 ho reached water, and I lion ' i offer this water to the travelorH ris ll'o "waters of life." Vlnltorn giive i.he old man pieces of silver and the proprietors of the pleasure, resort* kept him supplied with proviHlous in vn- turn for the work he did in keeping tho roads In repair. Clements preached the goHpol of spiritualism t.o othor prospc( torn, and made converts of Bates I'orMingcr nt:d his wife, who have a little fruit, farm and H plucnr claim.
