One way of putting the unemployed at productive work is to set them prospecting for gold. That is not so fantastic as it may sound. There are gold deposits in many places which easily yield enough to pay good wages to people who know how to get the gold out.
In Denver and other Colorado city schools for gold diggers have been started. Half a dozen experience placer miners are showing the unemployed how to wash the sands of the South Platte river for gold. Here inside the city limits of Denver, every Spring and Summer since gold was first discovered there in 1858, miners have been mining out 1.50 to 2.00 a day of gold per man.
