A DELUGE OF GOLD [Newspaper Article] — The Charleville Courier — 30 May 1896

ATBELtJGE OF GOLD Th<* world's production of gold for 1895 was the largest siuce gold-mining was began. It wa3 greater by a third than the ; highest yield '* bonanza" year; greater by half- than in the Comstock days ; greater by a dozen tiuies than in any year down to the discovery of gold in California. And this enormons total-amounting to more than £40,000.000-was dne, not to the discovery of vast new fields, not to rich " strikes" bnt to a single . fact^-cheapened production. Supplies at a low cost, improved methods of mining, and the new cyanide prnci'e*, have brought within profitable treatment vast t.odies of low grade or» which . formerly were looked upon as practically worthless ; so that at the present time much rock once thrown away or parsed by because it contained hardly more than a microscopic shadow of gold, is used, and this has added to the gold production of the earth by quite one-half, as that production has averaged in this generation.

'Igjun persons have been known to repeat a Ioiik discourse after hearing it once, ar even a series of things, without.connection. as a lonf column of figures, or a number of ?words without meaning. There is, a, .man on record who could'repeat the whole contents of a newspaper, and of another who could retain words that we dictated to him, without any connection, to the amount of 6000. A man mentioned by Seneca, after hearing a poet read .a a new poem, claimed it for his own. and in pursuance of this claim repeated the poem from Beginning to end, which the author himself could not do. A similar anecdote Is told of an Englishman whom the King of Prussia placed behind a screen when Voltaire came to read him a new poem of considerable length. -The King derided him on claiming ...

DRAWN BY LOT. - THE thirty-eight of us were confined in a large room, and it was the fourteenth day after the Spanish gunboat captured our little steamer before we received a hint of what fate had in store for us. Then an officer entered, called on us to pay strict attention, and announced that we were to be taken out and shot on the morrow. An hour later he returned to explain that he was mistaken. The gracious and merciful Spanish Government would be satisfied with jsix lives instead of thirty-eight. We had killed six of the crew of the gunboat, and it was to be a Iifo for a life.
