Main, Quartzsite (across from Pilot) 928-927-DEAL (3325) April 17, 2013 Voices from The Past in Quartzsite, AZ Excerpts from "In the Shadow of Saguaros" by Rosalee Oldham Wheeler Arbuckle's Coffee 16 cents a pound From 1904 to 1906, Bill Keiser had a job hauling 50-gallon barrels of water out to the mines around Quartzsite for 50-cents a barrel. It took six horses to pull the wagon loaded with eight barrels of water over the long sandy roads and up into the hills. Middle Camp, Ora Fino, and the Mariquita Placers were six miles west of Quartzsite, the La Cholla Placers were seven miles to the southwest, the Plomosa Placers seven miles east, and the Valenzuela Mine was located 17 miles northwest of Bill's water supply. There was over a hundred men placer mining for gold with a few of them making as much as $10 to $20 a day. They would give Bill their grocery orders and he would deliver their grub the following week when delivering their precious supply of water. Bill especially liked their method of payment, freshly mined gold that could be exchanged for supplies at Scott's Store. Considering that food had to be freighted-in some 100 miles from Yuma, food supplies were still inexpensive. Bacon or ham was sold for two-bits a pound and a 24-pound sack of flour fetched 75-cents. A 12-ounce can of milk cost seven-cents, and dried frijoles beans were six-cents a pound. Baking powder was in short supply so the miners learned to make their own by mixing a half pound of bicarbonate of soda with a quarter pound of cream of tarter. This mixture needed to be kept in an airtight container or it would quickly loose strength. If biscuits were made with a substitute that had become weak, they wouldn't rise, and the biscuits would be as hard as the rocks the miners worked. Every miner's grocery order included a package of Arbuckles' whole coffee beans. Tucked inside the coffee beans was a small wrapped piece of hard candy, a special treat for lonely miners. Two Pennsylvania brothers, John and Charles Arbuckle had developed a new pre-roasted coffee that they coated with a glaze made of egg and sugar then sold in one-pound packages. Up until that time, coffee had been as green whole beans, which had to be roasted in a skillet over a campfire before it could be ground and brewed. If just one bean scorched, then every cup of coffee from that batch carried a bitter, burned flavor. Packages of Arbuckles' Ariosa (air-eeo-sa) Coffee had a bright yellow label with the name ARBUCKLES' in large red letters over a flying angel. Bill told me how the miners ground the whole beans without a coffee grinder. They simply put the beans for the morning's coffee into a can and, with a piece of drilling steel pounded the SEE ARBUCKLE'S PAGE 17 Got Drugs?
