along the line "-of a grest fracfored
zone which runs in a general north and
south direction, about parallel with
Bear River, not only for the length of
this group of claim , but continues,
both to the north and south, through a
number of other claims.
This zone is of variable and not clearly defined width, but is in place several
hundred feet across, and runs through
an argillite formation, conforming,
nearly, to both the stri e and dip of
the argillite. Within this zone the argillite has been more or less crushed,
and presents, when cemented together
by the quartz vein matter, a brecciated
mass. Within this zone there are a
number of comparatively small felcitic
dykes, running with the fissure, apparently injections after the formation of
the lissure, and these dykes seem to be
present wherever important mineralization has taken place. Through this
general zone of crashing, siliceous infiltration has taken place, and these
channels of silicitication now form the
quartz   veins   in   which the mfheral is
found.

WIRES CLEAR
ONCE MORE
Now that the telegraph line has been
repaired after having been out of commission for weeks, residents feel relieved and glad to be in touch with the
world once more. Perhaps nobody is
happier than the local agent, S. G.
Lawrence, who has heard a lot of
things about the Government and telegraph systems he never heard before
since the line went down.
Maintaining a telegraph line in this
district is frought with difficulty and
danger. A repair staff is stationed at
Maple Bay and the men have had
more than their share of hardship this
winter. The snow has been deep and
danger along the mountain canyons
have caused narrow escapes. The
local agent himself was nearly drowned
when fording Bear River to ascertain
if the break in the line was on this
end.
But the line is clear again and the
joy Mr. Lawrence feels he expresses
in the following lines:
'Twas a stormy day last winter and
the wind blew up Canal;
Telegraph   poles   were    splintered
and wires were shot to h--.
