gymnasium was the scene of a
dance given by the Smelter Baseball Club, the first of its kind to be

and the enjoyment derived. Players and supporters of other teams
were present to' help make the
Smelter dance a success.
The CI lib annonnced that they
wanted 300 people to attend, and
judging by the appearance of the
assemblage there must have beeu
at least that number present.
An augmented orchestra, under
the direction of Mr. Liddel, six
pieces in all, dispensed music whioh
seemed to have just the proper
flavor, which created a desire for
more. Several numbers having to
be repeated six or seven times.
A dainty supper was served, to
which everyone did justice. Dancing continued until 2 a.m.
The management and members
of the Smelter Baseballers wish to
extend their sincere thanks to' the

Development Work
on the Lone Maid
Messrs; J. Murdoch and E.
Skoglund, who received a contract
during the winter to drive a 10,0-ft.
tunnel on the Lone Maid property,
have finished their contract. This
tunnel was driven with the object
of striking the Alice ledge, ""which
orosses the Lone Maid. The tunnel,
however, did not strike the ore body
and since high values have oeen
proven on the ore ledge already
drifted on, it has been decided to
follow that ledge with the hope of
encountering a larger body of high
grade ore. J. Murdoch has commenced drifting op this ledge, and
the development- work will be
watched with considerable interest
Samples recently taken from this
ledge have given 238 ozs. silver and
$12.0,0 gold per ton. The ledge
now being drifted on is the one
which gave the unusual high assay,
of 307 ozs. of gold per ton, so far,
no more of this ore has been
