    Arbuckle coffee, I've read, came in a bag. "The real Arbuckle mud" became a phrase meaning the genuine article.

    I've also read the company put a stick of peppermint in the bag. Well wrapped, I hope - otherwise it would taste like coffee. Chuck wagon range cooks would give the candy to the cowboy who helped clean up after dinner and wash the dishes.

    Good luck to all,

    sdcfia: You are, of course, quite welcome! I am thoroughly enjoying these 19th (and early 20th) century newspaper articles. Reminds me of the great work done by Ed ("Jesse Rascoe") Bartholomew. Newspaper research certainly is much easier today.

    Good luck to all,

    You can still buy the genuine Arbuckle's coffee:

    https://www.arbucklecoffee.com/

    I was surprised to learn that 8 O'clock coffee is also a 'cowboy coffee' and was the main competitor for Arbuckle's, and it is also still available of course.

    Please do continue;

    when Adam's returned and tried to rediscover the canyon of gold there was a man
    who put up some money and helped him search for quite awhile, i think he may have
    kept searching even after Adam's left the area his name was C. A. Shaw, Captain Shaw
    wrote a book of some sort simply called ''Gold'', has anybody ever seen this book?

    Howdy!

    I believe this is the book(let) you reference - written by Byerts, not Capt. Shaw (I'm not aware he ever wrote up the story):

    A somewhat belated "Many thanx!" for posting that article. I couldn't read the name of the paper or the date at the top. However, a little research shows it appears to be from The Sun (New York, New York) 3 February 1890.

    Old Bookaroo, I have that book, C.A. Shaw was an ex navy capitain who financed and helped Adams himself search
    they said he was very weary of people, but believed everything Adams told him and never gave up on him.
    Dobie talks about his book, as well as McKenna and said the old captain knew things he never diclosed in
    the book, Shaws book like Beyrts was titled simply GOLD.
