Interview with Captain W. H. Hembree:
On April 28, 1938, Captain W. H. Hembree, who was then working in a gold mine near Estacada, Oregon, was interviewed by Andrew C. Sherbert of the Federal Writer's Project for his knowledge of pioneering days and what he might know about the legend of the Lost Blue Bucket Mine. At that time, Captain Hembree was The Paper - 760.747.7119
73 years old and described by Mr. Sherbert as short, stocky, extremely rugged, and with the appearance of great physical capabilities for one his age. Sherbert also stated that Hembree was knowledgeable in the various methods used in recovering gold, and at the time, had the appearance of a typical prospector, complete with carrying ore samples and a magnifying lens in his pocket.
“I was born in Monmouth, Polk County, Oregon, in October 7, 1864, and was
christened William Harry Hembree. My father's name was Houston Hembree. He was named for the illustrious Sam Houston and was born in Texas, though his family later moved to Missouri. My mother's name was Amanda Bowman and she was born in Iowa, coming to Oregon in 1848. My father left Missouri for Oregon in one of the first emigrant trains of the great migration of the 1840's, arriving in the Willamette Valley sometime in 1843. The train that my father came to Oregon with is said to have been the first “wheels” ever to make the entire journey from the east to The Dalles.
The wagon train of which my father and his kinfolks were members, was more fortunate than the parties which followed the old Oregon Trail in the years immediately after. The Indians did not trouble the earlier emigrants, were friendly in fact, according to accounts given me by my father. It was not until the later emigrants came through that the Indians began to attack travelers -- in 1844, 1845, and thereafter.
Father's train arrived at The Dalles with exactly the same number of members as it had when it left Missouri. There

had been, however, a death and a birth on route, both occurring simultaneously at a place now called Liberty Rock, Idaho. The one who died was a second cousin of mine, whose name I have forgotten. The child that was born, was my aunt, Nancy Hembree. Though there had been gold stampedes, land grants from the government, and all sorts of empire building activities in Oregon after my father arrived from the east, he had not yet struck it rich when I squalled onto the scene 10 years later. When I am asked to recall incidents of my early life and to describe the games we played in my childhood, I can truthfully answer that there was no childhood, in the sense meant. There were no games. All that I remember about my childhood is work, work, and work. Work, long before the sun came up. Work, long after the sun had set. When I was eight years

Years ago, an Alabama grandmother gave the new bride the following recipe exactly as written.
old I was doing real labor -labor that today would draw a man's wages. Union working hours? Sit down strikes? Such things were not dreamed of then.
My father and older brothers used to make shingles every day in the week except Sunday. They made them by hand, riving them out of cedar bolts with a tool called a “frow.” If you've never seen one, a frow is a steel, wedgeshaped cleaver-like blade with a sharp edge, with a handle set at right angles from one end of the blade. You hit the frow with a mallet, driving through the shingle bolt, cleaving the bolt with the grain of the wood. Only the best, the very best straightgrained cedar was used for these shingles. The manufactured shingles of today have a useful life of about ten years or so, but, I'm willing to wager that some of the shingles my family made -- if there was any possible way of identifying them -- are still giving service somewhere in Oregon. They were made to be practically everlasting. Making shingles by hand at
the tender age of eight years, I worked right along with the rest of the men of the family. Being the youngest, my job was to keep the shavings all raked up into piles, and to bundle the shingles as fast as my father and brothers made them. That was no easy job for a youngster so small, for they contrived to fashion a surprisingly large number of shingles each day and the piles of shavings grew prodigiously large as the day wore on. No sooner would I arrange and tie one bundle of shingles that it seemed another was ready to tie. We used to work well on into the evening. That's when the piles of shavings were put to use. I would set fire to the shaving piles, one after another as each burned out, and we worked by the light of these pungent fires. It was not at all unusual for us to work 14 or 16 hours from the time we started in the morning until we gave up and called it a day. I was always a pretty tired youngster when I had tied off the last bundle and was mighty glad when my father would say, “Alright boys, let's put out the fire.”

New Rules - by George Carlin (Purportedly)
New Rule: No more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab. Picking out the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you isn't gift giving, it's the white people version of looting. New Rule: Stop giving me
I worked along with the family, riving shingles until I was 12 or 13 years old when I began to work out for others. Boys in those days seemed to mature earlier than they do now. As soon as a lad had a sign of fuzz on his cheek he was considered a man and was expected to fill any place that a man could. I was no exception. At 15, I was riding the range, and at 17, had been pretty much all over the great plains of central and eastern Oregon.
As I said before, we worked every day but Sunday, and except for chores, Sunday really was a day of rest, and a very welcome one. The day was really a quiet and holy day in those times. My family was not what one would consider overmuch pious or religious, for those times, but, it seemed that every family embraced some sort of faith. God did not seem so far away as he does today. He seemed mighty close to us. We seemed to see evidence of His works all around us and were mightily awed by His power. ‘Blue Bucket Mine’ Cont. on Page 3

I noticed that folks in general don't have that sort of religious consciousness in them of late years. Our home was typical of a pioneer Oregon family. Mother made home-spun. I can see her at the spinning wheel, treading out the yarn that was to go into the things that we would be wearing a few months later. Today, women of the age she was then, use the same toe my mother used on the treadle, to step on the accelerator as they drive to a department store for machine-made cloth and ready-made garments. Our work clothes, shirts and pants, were usually made of home-tanned buckskin. This stuff wore like iron, and though it was not very beautiful to look at, it was extremely serviceable. When a man -- and I mean by that, any male person over 16 or thereabouts -- was able to accumulate the required number of dollars, one of his most important investments would be in a Sunday-go-to-meeting outfit made by eastern tailors, and consisting of a swallowtail coat, a fancy, light-colored vest, and a striped pair of pants. He would top this elegant attire with a high, beaver hat. He was then ready for -and considered properly dressed to be acceptable in -the most dignified and formal gathering, or social function.
After a good deal of wandering about, mostly within Oregon's boundaries, I came to Portland and got a job on Portland's “Paid” fire department. The fire department personnel, at that time, comprised both paid and volunteer firemen. I stayed with the department for about three years, making an excellent record as a fireman, and then went to sea as a sailor. I liked the seafaring life very much and my travels took me to many foreign ports, where I saw a great deal to interest a young man of my active and curious disposition. But, I hadn't quite forgotten the thrill and excitement that
went with fighting fires, so I returned to Portland, and because I had left a good service record behind me when I quit the department previously, I was immediately placed on the roster and became once more a fireman. After another few years as a fireman, the sea beckoned again, and I returned to walk the caulked planks of a ship's deck. A couple of years at sea and I again found myself yearning for the prancing firehorse and clanging gong. Back to the fire department, where I served during Mayor Simon's administration, quitting finally and never again returning, because of disgust with political wrangling going on within the department's ranks. I then worked on river boats in various capacities, where I earned the courtesy title of Captain. I have no papers, however.
In between other activities, even as a young man I was interested in gold mining. I have prospected in the past 50 years in almost every section of Oregon where gold had been, or appeared that it might be found. I have panned every river and creek in the state where I thought there was a remote possibility of making worthwhile findings. In recent years, I have operated small mines with more or less success. I am, at present, beginning the operation of a mine in Clackamas County, near the Marion County line. The sample essay looks good, and in spite of many former disappointments in similar enterprises, I have every hope that this one will turn out prosperously. However, if it doesn't, I shall promptly find another likelylooking hole-in-the-ground, and with a true prospector's unquenchable optimism, my hopes will doubtless rise again. Perhaps the most widely publicized Oregon gold mine, if there ever was such a mine, is the famous “Blue Bucket.” I have been erroneously credited with knowing a great deal about this mysterious, lost mine. As a matter of fact, in common with many other persons, I have been tremen-

dously interested in the historic “Blue Bucket”; have gathered a considerable amount of data concerning it; and have journeyed to the region where it was supposed to have been located. I might even go so far as to say that I am satisfied in my own mind that I have been to within a few furlongs of the actual spot where it was. However, until the elusive “Blue Bucket” is actually and indisputably rediscovered, one man's story is as good as another's. Here's mine:
The Blue Bucket Mine got its name from the fact that a wagon train which is supposed to have stumbled onto the rich gold deposit, was made up of a string of wagons, the bodies of which were painted blue. In those days, wagons had no hub nuts to hold a wheel in place on the axle. Wheels were held on the axle by what was called a linch pin, which was merely a pin, or bolt, that slipped through a hole in the axle outside the hub of the wheel. Between the hub and pin was a washer which rubbed on the

New Rule: I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my card, entering my PIN number, pressing 'Enter,' verifying the amount, deciding, no, I don't want cash back, and pressing 'Enter' again, the kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my Almond Joy.
New Rule: Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn't make you Spiritual. It's right above the crack of your ass. And it translates to 'beef with broccoli.' The last time you did anything spiritual, you were praying to God you weren't pregnant. You're not spiritual. You're just high. New Rule: Competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the U.S. Open of Competitive Eating, because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too damned exciting. ‘Chuckles’ Cont. on Page 7
hub. To prevent wear, it was necessary to constantly daub the axle, at the point of friction, with tar, which the immigrants carried in buckets that hung on a hook at the rear of the wagon. The tar buckets of this particular wagon train were also painted blue. The train made a “dry camp” (no water in sight) one night on a meadow in a valley between two ridges of hills. Needing water for their horses, members of the train set out on foot, each in a different direction, to attempt to locate a small creek or pond nearby. Each carried one of the blue tar buckets, in which to carry water if any were found. One member came upon a wet, cozy spot, where it appeared water was near the surface of the ground. He dug down, using the bucket as a spade, and upon raising the bucket found it filled with wet dirt containing nuggets of gold. And that was how the Blue Blue Bucket Mine was discovered. I was privileged once to see a diary said to have been kept

Superior Court Judge Throws the Book at Oceanside Couple for Abusing Niece
By all accounts, Isabel, had a miserable life from age 12 years old and on. Her aunt and uncle, Inez Martinez Garcia, 43, and Marcial Garcia Hernandez, 45, of Oceanside, had been arrested and charged with enslaving their 12 year-old niece, forcing her to work, selling her for sex, raping her, and beating her whenever they felt like it.
Twenty two years for Hernandez and twenty years for Martinez Garcia, were the sentences handed down by the court. Once they complete their prison sentence they each will likely be deported back to Mexico. The U.S. may deport holders of green cards for certain crimes. Caregivers Sentenced to Prison

signed to their care, the two were sentenced to prison last week.
Registered nurse Michael Garritson, 62, was convicted of two felonies and four misdeamanors, Matthew McDuffie, 28, was convicted of two misdemeanors and was sentenced to a year in jail. Vista Superior Court Judge Blaine Bowman sentenced Garritson to three years of probation and a year in jail. The charges could have brought four years in prison.
Under court rules, however, McDuffie was released last week since both defendants had been in jail for eight months awaiting trial - which satisfied the one year sentence. The victim, Jamey Oakley, is severely autistic, cannot speak, and requires constant supervision. Kim Oakley, his mother, installed a surveillance camera in his bedroom last July. Upon return from an overseas trip she reviewed the video and after seeing the abuse inflicted upon her son notified the Sheriff’s office.
Oakley’s mom expressed anger that these two individuals are back out on the street, walking free. Escondido City Council Approves School Lease
After an almost three hour, sometimes emotional, hearing, the Escondido City Council voted 4-1, Councilmember Diaz voting no, to approve a 10-year lease of property within the East Valley Community Center, much of which had been vacant for several years. Heritage Digital Academy will lease the property, generating about $1.8 million in revenue to the city over a 10 year period. The council majority felt that a combination of factors warranted their approval of the lease, including the reputation of its founder and CEO, Dennis “Coach” Snyder, and his ability to generate outstanding students at Escondido Charter High School, as well as the fact there are waiting lists for the existing school(s) as well as the new one; that commercial real estate broker confirmed the monthly rental

Not only does she do The Social Butterfly column every week, in addition to doing the books for The Paper, the legals, the subscriptions, the banking, the billings, etc., and keeping me out of trouble and out of jail, but she also is president of the Escndido Women’s Club, a big high mucky-muck in Kiwanis, on the personnel commission for the Escondido Union School District . . . and she’s an active member of her sorority. In fact, she’s so busy even I often don’t see as much of her as I would like.

A San Diego non-profit organization, Computers 2 SD Kids, or C2SDK, has arranged for almost 500 families from six Escondido schools to receive newly refurbished computers at a cost of only $65 per computer.

Still, watching the surf roll in and explode on the shoreline is fun . . . and the sound could soon lull you to sleep. (Once you get past the rocky cliffs of La Jolla Cove, you just have the aroma of salty air . . . absent the poop.)
Our guest, Brenda Jones, went into the La Jolla Cave but I sat and waited for her as I was just too tired. We then drove the La Jolla Scenic drive, saw the Soledad Mountain Monument and then took in all the mansions. Then, back to the condo to meet Evelyn, who was returning from a busy day in Escondido . . . getting the subscriptions out, a Woman's Club Meeting, or perhaps it was a Personnel Commission meeting, I lose track, and then an awards function.

necessary that today’s students have access to computers, not only in the classroom but at home for study projects. C2SDK uses many recycled parts in rebuilding and refurbishing computers so that prevents a lot of electronics from going into a landfill, an environmentally friendly solution to a growing problem. Escondido is not by itself in the effort to put computers into the home of all students. Nine Vista Unified Schools are signing up families for the same program and the organization has also worked with San Marcos, Oceanside, and Rancho Bernardo.
moderate income families in the Oceanside area are eagerly awaiting more developments on the $81.8 million Mission Cove affordable-housing project. Latest news suggests the property might become a reality in early 2014, at least in terms of breaking ground. The 14.5 acre project, located near the Oceanside Municipal Airport, will offer 238 apartments, a 5,000 sq. ft. community center and a 10,000 sq. ft. retail center.
To qualify for Mission Cove apartments the residents must have incomes between 30 percent and 60 percent of the area median income, which comes to around $72,000 for a family of four.
More information on the program is available at: Computers 2 San Diego Kids at 858.200.9787 or c2sdk.org.

mild this past winter, they were strong enough to wash away a lot of sand from Oceanside beaches, particularly noticeable on the halfmile stretch of what used to be a sandy beach south of Tyson Street. Today, there are mostly stones there . . . which make for uncomfortable barefoot walking on the shore. The city harbor and beach director, Frank Quan, was quoted as saying “it’s at one of the lowest levels it’s been at in 20 to 30 years.”
Because of a grunion run, the Army Corps of Engineers has been unable to dredge sand to re-deposit on the beach. The law protects the grunion’s egg laying areas. There is no money in the budget currently which would provide for bringing in sand, said city officials. They would also need to identify long term funding, they said.

Anthony Fernando Garcia was arraigned last Friday. He faces up to five years in custody if found guilty of all charges. The taser probes missed the deputy but, fearing for her life, she fired a single shot from her handgun to the torso of Garcia. He was taken to hospital for treatment and is in stable condition. The deputy was also injured in the fight. She was treated at a hospital and released.
Bail for the Vista man, which had been $50,000 at the time of his arrest, was increased to more than $1 million.
The shooting took place outside an apartment complex on Primrose Avenue, near Lobelia Drive, just east of Sycamore Avenue in Vista.

That’s pretty much what Wendel Willis has done and come July he’ll reach the century mark. 100 years old! Born in Hastings, Nebraska, he moved to Lincoln, where he grew up. He does not, however, bleed Husker Red. Doesn’t care all that much for football or other sports.
After high school he went to work as a postal telegraph delivery boy, riding his bike all over Lincoln, delivering telegrams, much like Western Union, a later configuration of the same business. “I delivered those telegrams through rain, sleet, snow and burning sun,” he says. He did this for a couple of years until he married a little farm girl from Neely, Nebraska. Married at age 23, that marriage lasted for 67 years before his wife passed away about eight years ago. Together, they had a son and daughter, many grandchildren and several great grandchildren.

After Ken and Alex left we went to pick up the pups and took them to Dog Beach in Del Mar. We thought they would enjoy the new adventure. The sandy beach they liked. The other dogs, they liked. We learned they do not like water. We managed to get Trixie’s feet a little wet from an incoming wave . . . and I got Cindy into the water and she first headed toward the beach, then toward daddy . . . then back to the beach. Later, Evelyn tried to lead Cindy into the water by her leash. I and a couple of the other beachgoers were doubled over with laughter at the sight. Here's Evelyn, who weighs a bit more than 15 lbs., struggling to pull this 15 lb. pup to the water by her leash . . . . and Cindy dug in all four feet and pulled against evelyn. Cindy won.

Letters to the Editor The Solution
How do we create more jobs? Bring back some of the outsourced companies (give them tax breaks). Go on a shopping splurge or sell high yielding bonds to get the money to pay for infrastructure repairs and improvements. Have rallies to sell these Bonds like we did in the past Wars. In this case for rebuilding our country. Engage tutors, special ed teachers and child care providers. Even make do jobs like beautifying government buildings. Create more parks.
Since so many jobs are going to the way side, due to automation, computers and robotics, we need to do this.
Unless we do this, more and more people will not hold a job. That creates chaos and criminality. /s/William Hart Carlsbad, CA

Evelyn finally conceded defeat and figured out Cindy just didn't like water. (Neither one of the pups even like to go out on to wet grass after a rain, when it's tinkle time).
We returned the pups to Marty's house . . . then went to lunch, spent the afternoon just enjoying the sun, the surf, and kicking back. If you’re going to visit Carlsbad (and I recommend it) . . . a couple of recommendations:
We had fish and chips at O’Sullivan’s on Grand Avenue. About $16 a plate, well cooked, large chips, plenty of malt vinegar, great
Dini’s - a dinner house adjacent to Tamarack Beach Resort. We eat there often. Food is always good, as are the drinks. Service quite good. My only complaint is, during the evening hours, they should have some type of sound barrier, separating the restaurant from the bar. The party-goers in the bar can make so much noice it’s hard to carry on a quiet conversation. Still, a good place to dine. Al’s Cafe in the Village: Great food, excellent service. Very simple, down home atmosphere. Kathy, our waitress, was super-friendly and helpful. We met Al. Very pleasant guy. For a real treat, order Ben’s Wild Man Eggs. $7.95 for a delicious breakfast and a great story behind the breakfast. We’d never eaten her before and went there on the recommendation of one of our advertisers, Chris Nelson of Tina’s Deli, in San Marcos. Great reference. Great breakfast.
Don’s Country Kitchen: We’ve eaten here a number of times. Good food, reasonable prices, a bit cramped for space, staff has a bit of an aloof manner (but it was late in the day; perhaps they were tired).
This week, we’ll be spending some time at our time share at Lawrence Welks, Escondido; but, with the deadlines, we probably won’t get as much rest as we’d like.
It’s always good to get back home . . . but it’s also nice to get a few days of “the good life!” From good friend of The Paper, Sharon Prince:
“These two kittens need a home. One male and one female. Too young to neuter. They are boxtrained and eating solid food. Please consider giving them a chance at a good life with you. Call Sharon Prince at 619.997.4045.”
Kaiser is a very unique little 3 year old dog. He has the coloring of a German Shepherd but the size of a big Chi. One pro suggested a Border Terrier/Chi blend. We go with just plain cute! Our Tea Cup GSD... Kaiser is mellow, loving and always has a tail wag for his people. He grew up with kids so he is very gentle with them too. He loves his belly rubbed! He is very crate trained and when you can’t be with him he hangs out in his bed and watches the world go by! Like all our pups Kaiser has been neutered and microchipped. We pay the chip registration for you too. His 5 way vaccines and rabies are all up to date. He comes with a full 4 piece safety equipment set, food for his transition and any favorite toys or bedding. For more photographs of him please go to our website.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory
The feature article in last weeks “The Paper” made the point that WWII was an event on a scale never before or since experienced in human history. No work of mankind has ever approached in sheer magnitude that of the War between 1938 and 1945. The sixty million dead, the vast destruction and waste of resources are incomprehensible.
America’s subsequent conflicts pale in comparison. President Harry Truman called the Korean War a “police action.” Viet Nam was called the 5% war because of its minimal impact on the American economy. In the seventy-two hour battle for the tiny Pacific island of Tarawa, six thousand Marines died. That is more combat deaths than America
Education Reform and Holding Programs Accountable
California’s education system is underperforming to the detriment of thousands of students across the state. Existing standards, frameworks and intervention programs need to be measured and held accountable before the state spends more money on them. More than 25 percent of students perform at below basic levels in English and math. This statistic cannot continue.
Once students fall behind in critical subject areas, it is nearly impossible for them to catch up to their peers that are at or above grade level. It is important that students graduate from California’s school system with the necessary skills to succeed in our
has experience in the total of all conflicts after Viet Nam including the Beirut barracks, Grenada, Panama, The Gulf War, Somalia, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan.
So what’s the Point? There are two. First, to a soldier and his/her family there is no such thing as a “small war.” Combat is a personal experience and the tragic death of a loved one is not enhanced or diminished by the size of the conflict or the number of casualties. All veterans who lose their lives in service to this country are heroes and deserve equal honor and recognition. That’s what Memorial Day is about. The second point is that the WW II generation is rightly called “America’s Greatest Generation.” It is fitting and proper that between Memorial Day and D-Day we pause to pay special tribute to this entire generation, not just those who died in the combat but also those civilian men and women no longer living who served us so well in war and in peace and for those of that generation living today who serve to remind us of the sacrifices they made to protect our freedom.
and the rest of the nation united to support them at home. Women of all ages went to work in factories to replace the men who went to fight. We recycled tin cans and bacon grease, darkened our homes, rationed fuel, food and clothing and did without luxuries like sugar, nylons and coffee. The entire nation willingly united behind the war effort. There were no peace demonstrations, sit-ins or flag burnings. The generation that united in war, then united in peace. The soldiers who lived the horrors of trench warfare, suicide attacks and death camps came home to build the greatest nation on Earth. Those of us lucky enough to have grown up in post-war America as sons and daughters of “The Greatest Generation” knew a “golden age” in America that may never be matched.
All veterans deserve our respect and recognition but it was more than veterans that created that “Greatest Generation.” The hardships of the times and the horror of war created an entire generation with renewed appreciation for freedom and gratitude for the blessings of America.
Our parents along with most of the “The Greatest Generation” are gone now and those that remain are eighty or older. Nome and I are indeed fortunate to have so many as customers and friends. So the next time you meet a survivor of that generation, remember, they are all part of “America’s Greatest Generation.” Having the opportunity to show them our gratitude and respect is an honor and privilege that may soon no longer be available to us. God Bless America.
The desperation and grinding poverty of the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression seared into their generation a gritty toughness, a survival instinct and strength of character that made America invincible in war. The sons of the depression went overseas to fight for freedom
My goal is to improve education and ensure students can master the basics of English and math. Any intervention programs implemented to address underperformance should include evidence-based approaches that help students. Simply throwing money at the problem is not reform. Education tools and programs should be selected and funded based on their measured performance. We need to implement successful models that better educate our students. Let’s eliminate ineffective programs and fund those that have a trackrecord of success.

While this new legislation amounts to an admission that the fire tax is unfair, it is still being passed using the same sleight-of-hand method. Calling this new tax a “surcharge” means that only a simple majority vote is required to pass AB 468. Call it what they want, a tax by any other name is still a tax and enacting new taxes without a twothirds vote is unconstitutional. Like AB 23 and AB 124, AB 468 also passed the Assembly Natural Resources Committee.

New Rule: When I ask how old your toddler is, I don't need to hear '27 months.' 'He's two' will do just fine. He's not a cheese. And I didn't really care in the first place.
New Rule: If you ever hope to be a credible adult and want a job that pays better than minimum wage, then for God's sake don't pierce or tattoo every available piece of flesh. If so, then plan your future around saying, 'Do you want fries with that?' ••••• Answering machine message, "I am not available right now, but thank you for caring enough to call.

‘Blue Bucket Mine’ Cont. from Page 3 by a man whose name, I believe, was Warren. The man was a member of the “Blue Bucket” train. In the diary, he kept a day by day log of the train's progress. By a series of calculations, based upon the mileages and directions given in the diary, I was able to reach a position which must have been in the vicinity of the fabulous mine. To further convince myself that I had actually found the mine's exact location in my search, I one day stumbled onto a weathered portion of a wagon box, with unmistakable traces of blue paint still visible on its
bleached boards. That the wagon box was of the wagontrain era, was evidenced by the foot that it was built like a scow, or flat boat, and was caulked with rags, fragments of which were still intact. Emigrant wagons were constructed in such a manner to permit them to ford streams handily without damaging their contents. Well, there's my story of the Blue Bucket Mine. Many think the mine never existed. I think it did; however, I realize that my story would carry far more conviction were I able to exhibit a few buckets of gold taken from it -- regardless the color of the buckets. William Harry Hembree, 1938.
