PROSPECTOR ED SCHIEFFELIN.
When Sheriff Alex Orme had heard that his old boyhood mining companion hadn't returned for supplies,
he had a feeling something was wrong, perhaps a broken leg, but nothing like this.
He had apparently died of natural causes at age 49. Biscuits that had been cooking
in his now-cold oven were black, Schieffelin's $450 gold watch that chimed on the
quarter-hour still was in
his pocket, and there was no sign of a struggle.
