What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
'ele: THE LUMP CITY MINER: LUMP CITY, MONTANA. ------------ • • MINERS' TEN COMMANDMENTS. Ten Lew» for the Guidance br the Precious Metal Miners of the West. • 1. \lou shalt have no other olaim but one. II. 'I'hou shalt not make unto thyself any false claim, nor an) likewise of a mean nian, by jumping ono ; for 1, a miner, oui a juat une, fuel I will visit the miners round about, and they will judge thee ; and when they shall decide, thou shalt take thy pick, thy pan, thy shovel and thy blankets, with all thou hest, and shall depart seeking other good diggings, but thou shalt find none. Then when thou hest paid out all thy dust, worn out thy boots and garments so that there is nothing good about them but the pock- ets, and thy patience is like unto thy garments, then in sorrow shalt thou re- turn to find thy claim worked out, and yet thou bast no pile to hide in the ground, or in the old boot beneath thy bunk, or in the buck -skin or bottle be- neath thy cabin; and at last thou shalt hire thy body out to make thy board and save thy bacon. Thou shalt not go prospecting before thy claim gives out. Neither shalt thou take thy money, nor thy gold dust, nor thy good name to the gaming table in vain; for monte, roulette, faro and poker will prove to thee that the more thou putteet down the less thou shalt take up; and when thou thinkeet of thy wife and children, thou shalt not hold thyself guiltless -but insane. IV. Thou shalt not remember what thy friends do at home on the Sabbath day, lest the remembrance may not compare favorably with what thou doeat here. Six days thou mayst dig or pick, but the other day is Sunday; yet thou washest all thy dirty shirts, darnest all thy socks, tap thy boots, mend thy clothing, chop thy whole week's firewood, make up and bake thy bread and boil thy pork and beans, that thou wait not when thou re- turnest from thy diggings weary. For in six day's labor only thou canst not work enough to wear out thy body in many years; but if thou workest bard on Sunday also, •thou canst do it in six months; and thou, and thy morals, and thy conscience be none the better for it, but reproach thee should'st_thou ever return with thy worn-out body to thy mother's fireside. V. Thou shalt not think more of all thy gold, and how thou (emit make it fastest, than how thou wilt enjoy it after thou hest ridden rough -shod over thy good old parents' precepts and examples, that thou may at have nothing to reproach thee when left alone in the land where thy father's blessing and thy mother's love hath sent thee. • VI. Thou shalt not kill -neither thy body by working in the rain, even though thou shalt make enough enough to buy physic and attendance with; neither shalt thou destroy thyself by getting \tight\ nor \slowed \ nor \high \corned\ nor \half -seas -over,\ nor \three sheets in the wind,\ by drinking down brandy slings, gin cocktails, whiskyt punches, ruin toddies nor egg-nogs. Neither shalt thou suck « mint juleps nor sherry «idlers through a straw, no gurgle from a bottle the old \raw mate- rial,\ nor take it \straight\ from a de- canter; for while thou art swallowing down thy purse, and the coat from off thy back, thon art burning the coat from off thy stomach ; and if thou couldst see the house., and lands, and gold dust, and home comforts already lying there-\ a huge pile \-thou shouldet feel a choking in thy throat ; and when to that thou addeet thy crooked walkings, thou wilt feel disgusted with thyself, and inquire: \Is thy servant a dog, that he doeth thew, things ° \ Verily, thou shalt say: \Farewell old bottle; I will kiss thy gurgling lips no more. Cocktails, pun- ches, smashes, cobblere, nogg, toddies, and juleps forever farewell. Thy remem - brans* shames me. Henceforth I cut thy acquaintance, and headaches, tremb- linge, heart-burnings, blue devils and all the unholy catalogue of evils that follow in thy train. My wife's smiles and my children's merry -hearted laugh shall charm and reward me for having the manly courage to say 'No.\ I wish thee an eternal farewell.\ VII. Thou shalt not grow discouraged, nor think of going home before thou hast not \struck a lead,\ .nor found a rich \crevice nor sunk a bole updn • \eoc.ket lent in going home thou shalt leave four dollars a day, and go to work ashamed, at fifty cents; and serve thee right, for thon knoweat by staying hero thou mightiest strike a lead and fifty dollars a day, and keep thy manly self respect, and then go home with enough to make thyself and others happy. VIII. Th'.ii shalt not steal a pick, or a shovel, '.% • pan fr- m thy fellow miner, nor take au ft hl. t,.' , 111 without his leave, nor r h,..,a he cannot spare, nor return j them broken, nor trouble him to fetch them book again, nor talk with him while his water rent is running on, nor rem vo his stake to enlarge thy claim, nor nu' ter- mine his bank in following a lead, nor pau out gold from his \rime box,\ nor wash the \ tailings\ from hie sluice's mouth. Naither shalt thou pick out epecimené•-kuin the company's pan to put them in thy mouth or pocket ; nor cheat thy partner out of his share; nor steal from thy cabin mate his gold -dust, to add to thine, for he will be sure to dis- cover what thou hast done, and will straightwa) call his fellow miners to- gether, and if the law hinder them not, they will hang thee, or give thee fifty Wales, or shave thy head and brand thee, like a horse, %With \R\ upon thy cheek, to be known and read of all men, Mon- taniano in particular. IX. Thou shalt not tell any false tale about \good diggings in the mountains \ to thy neighbor, that thou tuayst benefit a friend who bath mules, and provisions, and tools and blankets he oannot sell, lest in deceiving thy neighbor, when he returneth through the snow, with naught save his rifle, he present thee with the contents thereof, and like a dog thou shalt fall down and die. X. Thou shalt not commit unsuitable matrimony, nor covet \single blessed - nose,\ nor forget absent maidens, nor neglect thy \first love ; \ but thou shalt consider how faithfully and patiently she awaited% thy coining- -yea, and cov- ered' each epistle that thou sendest with kisses of kindly welcome -until she hath thyself. Neither shalt thou covet thy neighbor's wife, nor trifle with the affec- tions of his daughter; yet, if thy heart be free and thou dost love and covet each other, thou shalt \pop the question\ like a man, lest another more manly than thou art should step in before thee, and then, in the anguish of thy heart's dis- appointment, thou shalt quote the lan- guage of the great, and say,\such is life,\ and thy future lot shall be that of a poor, despised, and lonely old bachelor.-AmErg. SPOTTED HORSE ALL RIGHT. 'The Celebrated oold Property will Once Stiffen the Single Standard. We are more than pleased to announce this week that the Spotted Horse mine has again resumed operations, and that P. W. McAdow, one of the best mining men in the world, and the only man who ever operated the Spotted Horse suc- cessfully, is at the helm. Mr. Mckdow and John M. Green, the manager of the company, arrived in Lewistown last Friday night on the Ben- ton ()flitch. Saturday morning Mr. Green went to Maiden to get things in shape and Mr. McAdow followed him on Sun- day. We learn that it is Mr. MoAdow's in- tention to expend $10,000 in prospecting for new bodies of ore, and it is generally understood that the right parties know just where this ore can be found. Twenty men were put on Monday and they will drive three up raise* from the No. 3 level to the surface and in twenty days it is expected that the entire plant will be in full blast with the usual num- ber of men employed. An examination of the mine was made Saturday and it was found there were only 17 feet ot wa- ter in the lower levels, which will only take a few days to pump out and plat the mine in good shape. Adam Sager will be the foreman in charge of the mine. The affairs of the company have been in bad shape for some months, the plant being sold at elverifre sale last April to satisfy certain creditors. Since then numerous employes have begun action against the company for wages due. All these claims will undoubtedly be settled inside the time allowed the company to redeem the property, and everything running smoothly once more. The return of Mr. McAdow to Fergus county, after an absence of several years, and his intention to take charge of the Spotted Horse mine for a time, is hailed with joy by every resident of this county. They have faith in him and in his ability to keep the Spotted Horse plant in oper- ation twelve months in the year. The operation of the plant will bring pros- perity to Maiden, whose citizens have experienced to the fullest extent the ups' and 'downs of a mining camp and who now wish for something permanent. The mines of the Maiden district are rich in mineral and the Spotted Horse is one of the beat. Millions of dollars have been taken from it, men have been made rich, and there are millions left. With the Spotted Horse, Gilt Edge and New Year mime in operation the mining industry of Fergus county will be in pretty good shape and the people correspondingly happy.- Montana Dern- ovrat, (Lewistown).
