Lay hhu nwny,
It mutters not whero;

And deposit linn there;
'Twill be useless to raise
A shaft o'er his head,
Kor heaven's aware
Ut' Ihe faet that he's dead!
Lowly his lot,
And bumble hia sphere.
The world—the big, busy world knew* not
That he ever wttfl BCDl t<> tniuiater here;
He gathered uu tulllious- he built up no
Cornered no markets, robbed uu one of
liis raiment was ragged, he lived upon
Hut heaven's aware of the fact that
he's dead!
Did he worship in ehiirrh
In the orthodox wny?
Did tbe rafters ring when
It wuh his I urn to pray 7
Alas, I know not—
Hui let it be snid
Thai heaven's aware
Of the faet that he's dead!
The orphan he fanned
Through feverish days
May live or may uot
To cherish bin praise;
The sick that be nourished when stricken
The starving that, wheu he was hungry,
be fed.
May pray for bim now, or may not, as
they list-
Hut  heaven's aware of  the  fact that
he's dead!
Lay hitn nwny.
It mailers not where;
1>JK a hole in tiie earth
And deposit hiin there;
When lhe lasl trumpet sounds
He will hear, he will bear
As well as the man
O'er whose bend people rear
The highest of columns-—
Aye, put bim to bed!
If there is a God He will not forget
That this lowly man lived—and is dead!

A N  you  tell fortunes?" she asked,
leaning her elbows
on  the  tabic  and
shuffling llie cards.

"Well, you know what I mean—all

about ser-nnilary persons, even If Ihey

"Since you know so much about It.
you can tell mine." She scattered the
cards toward me with a crash. "It's
ull right,.mum; I'm only throwing the
curds at (,'uusiu Harry." Her mother
guve a sleepy smile, and returned lo
lier slumbers.
-you mustn't blame me If lhe cards
arc unfavorable"
"1 .shall know you've made It up If
they ure."
"I wouldn't dream of jesting upon
such a subject," I assured her. "ITor-
tune-telling follows certain essential
principles, which are Immutable
"Should be practiced, not preached.
Oo ou."
"To start Willi, then, you are the
Queen of Hearts."*
"Why J"
"Because the Queen of Hearts represents feminine ln-nuty uud charm."
"Oh!" she leaned back and laughed.
"If you are only going lo Hutler me I
won't listen."
"I merely slate a fact. You are the
Queen of Heart*;."
"So, I'm not. I'm spades oi'cllllM, because I'm dark."
"Excuse mc, ll Is not n mailer merely
of cumplcYon, bul of general appear-
unce. Spades represent plain people,
diamonds passable people, nud hearts
very nice-looking peoplo. Therefore
you are the Queeu of Hearts."
"Lota of people wouldn't consider me
good-looking nl all." Her tone Invited
"Very likely not." She flashed «n In-
dlgn.imt glance nt me. "Hut ihe fortuneteller Is the mile Judge on these occasions."
"I'm glad the fortune-teller Is so appreciative. Of course, 1 know you're
only pretending." She looked at me for
denial, but 1 busied myself with the
cards. "Ho on!" she cried.
"First, I snulllc the cards—so. Then I
cut Ihem—so. Now I place my hand on
them—so. Vou place your ham] on top
of mine." She did. "Now I place my

"I uever heard of this before," said
she, doubtfully. Neither did I, but It
had occurred lo me as an Improvement.
"Now you must sit quite still and silent for a lull minute."
"1 know J shall laugh."
"Then tbe fortune will be spoiled."
"I don'l believe It's necessary."
"Yes, It Is—to place the teller and the
trllee ea rapport."
"Bat we aren't, you know. We always quarrel—at least, you do."
"Couldn't we be. Just for a minute,
Mllly?" I didn't mean to speak seriously, hut I did.
She nodded gravely, and I snt looking
al nn.l watching the pink color steal
ovcr her pretty face. I ilrink it uiust
have becn two minutes that we sat like
lhal, during which I forgave her all ber
III tie wickedness.
"There!" snld l, reluctantly. "Now
for tin* fortune. (Jut llie cards, Mllly.
The fortune must be your own making."
"You have made me feel quite serious," said she wllh u nervous Little
"It Is going lo be a serious fori line."
l meant it to be.
"Then—then won't you cut, Ion, Hurry? To repre-se-nt other people?   1 don't
like all the responsibility,  Please!" Ho
I cut, too. It didn't matter, you sec,
because I looked at the cards before I
put ttit-in down lu the shape of an
opened fun round the Queen of Hearts,
Of course, I don'l know anything nbout
fortune-telling, really.
"The disposition of lhe curds," I said
gravely, "Indicates many possibilities
of happiness nnd good fortune, If you
take your opportunities; but much Is
left to your ow.li decision."
"Whnt a nuisance! Don't they say
how 1 shall decide?"  I shook my head.
"The hearts near the queen show lhat
you are and will be much liked and admired."
"1 believe you're making It up."
"The three kings next to her I ridicule
three admirers—perhaps lovers."
"Whoever enn they be?"
"The King of Clubs, with tho oilier
clubs close by, I tako lo be a soldier—
good-looking, dashing, and, from the
diamonds In lhe same line, not badly
off. The hearts nt the end of the line
denote that you have given him some

"Perhaps Ihey mean thai you will do
so." I suggested, Inquiringly; but she
twisted np her handkerchief and made
no answer.
"The King of Diamonds, with spades
following, means an elderly suitor who
has prospered In trade, He Is shown
by the diamonds, ending wllh the
knsve, lo have made n fortune nnd re-
tlred, bunding over ihe business io his
son."  I meant old Parsley.
"I call It very unkind of you. Harry."
Her lip dropped a little, and I hastened
to apologize.
"It Isn't my doing.   It's thc card*."
"Well, you know It Isn't true. It's
only"—she looked over her shoulder to
sec Unit her mother was still asleep—
"mamma's silliness. Why, he's us old

"The cards leave It lo you. Mllly."
"Don't you bellevo mc?" She looked
quite hurt.
"Of course—If you say no." I patted
her hand, whicli wus lying mi the In-
blo, but she drew- It sharply away and
rubbed the touch off wiih hcr handkerchief.
"Well? The King of Hearts? What
does that menu?"
I considered u moment. "The King of
Hearts," I pronounced slowly, "means
a handsome young fellow who pnid
you u great deul of attention when you
were staying wllh the Queen of Clubs,
a dark relative - probably your uuut."
"1 won't listen lo another word!" sho
cried, Indignantly, "l-t's il nasty, horrid
fortune, and quite untrue.   There!"
"Very well." I made ns If I would
sweep Ihe cards together.
"Don't be disagreeable." She looked
nt ine reproachfully, Willi one of her
kaleidoscopic changes. "I wmu lo
hear It—my proper fortune—not nonsense."
"Well, Isn't (his true?"
"No, it Isn't."
"Didn't he pay you a lot of alien-

"Yes." He was the rival I really
"Nothing special."
"So many pay yon attention lhal you
think nothing nf 11."
"You silly fellow!" said she, scornfully, "Why, he's almost engnged lo
cousin Annie," 1 felt as though a
weight was taken off me.
"Why," I said, "how stupid of me!
She must be thc dark lady, I suppose.
I ought to hnve connected him wilh
her Instead of with you."
"I don't believe you understand lhe
fortune business n bit."
"It's very difficult," I apologized.
"But you sec lho cards arc all right,
when you read them properly."
"What else do they sny?"
"The next point is money. Tho seven
of diamonds, next lo the knave of

a legacy; and "
"No, no!" she Interrupted, "I don'l
want to know obout money."
"Well, lhe duration of life Is shown
"Thnt doesn't matter," said she
quickly, shrugging her shoulders.
"Then I hardly know what else
there Is lo tell." 1 looked at her doubtfully. There was one thing only that I
wanted to tell her. "What do you waut
to know, MlUy?"
She put her elbow on the table and
rested her bend on her hand. Them she
laughed uneasily, aud I held my breath
for u moment.
"Isn't there—I mean did you finish
with—Hit—the—admirers, as you call
them?"  .
"There Is another," I told her, "but
he ls hardly worth mentioning."
"Why not? Becuuse he doesn't care
for—dosen't admire, or whatever you
call It—much?"
"Oh, no! But he's poor, you see. Being ouly the Klug of Spades, he has to
work for a living, so he admires at a
distance. There are two canln between
hlm and hcr, you see."
"But," said she very gently, "they
are hearts."
"Yes," said I, "they are hearts; being
two, they show that he Is distantly related,"   We are second cousins really.
"They Indicate that he Is very fond or
her. hut leave it doubtful If she Is more
lhan slightly attracted lo hlm." I looked nppciilingly lo her, bul her eyes
were eusl down,
"Hon- do you make Unit out?" she
asked uI length.
"The card next to her Is the two; but
that by hlm Is lhe ten, which means
greal affection."

During centennial year Congress resolved to provide the necessary funds

would accomplish i.hc strengthening
Daring the operation of replacing the
old foundation it wus considered expedient to provide menus for noting cure-
fully lhe slightest vibration of lhe
walls lest, the monument might be iu
danger of collapsing. Accordingly a
heavy weight was suspended by a stout
thread from the apex to a pun of thick
syrup located on l.lie base, so Unit no
chance draught of air would be likely
lo sway tin: weight. An Ingenious contrivance wus so attached lo tlte weight

Rome friends who have Just returned
from n tour In out-of-the-way purls of
Norway tell me of a capital hotol system In vogue there which might be
adopted Willi advantage lu some parts
of Scotland and Ireland, lu every village where no hotol exists sonic one of
lhe more prominent Inhabitants Is sub-

and In return Is bound lo provide accommodation for not less (ban four
travelers; he mny lake lu more If he
chooses, but four Is lhe minimum. My
friends made frequent use of these sub-
sldlzod hostelrles and are enthusiastic
concerning the excellence of tho accommodation and food supplied. I did nol
galher whether the larlff was regulated
by Government, but I presume It Is;
nuywny, the charges ure absurdly moderate. Norway owes much of her prosperity to tourists, and she certainly
treats them well.—London Sketch.

The la,e.I advice ironi Ottawa is to
the r-ff.-ct tliat lhe chances ol the Ket*
il j River Valley railway securing a
charter arc very flattering. Through
the influsnee ol tic able arguments
presented hy thc Boundary Creek delegation at Ottawa, Sir Willred I.nur*
'ier Las withdrew his opposition, if he
pad uny, to the granting ol tho charter,
which will have considerable weight
with lhe members of the cabinet when
it comes up before li.yni for consideration. The only objection that be had to
this measure was that it was an America >. line ant it would baye a tendency
lo enable Americans to transfer the
Bmelting of Canadian ores from our own
to an alien country. It was fully explained to oim that the development of
the Bcundhry Creek district, the ores
*of which are neaily all low f,T?.dc, depends a'togeiher upon tbe shippers
having all possible competitive facilities afforded them lo L-r-cure (reigb:
rates at thevcry lowest possible future.
So far as the question of smelling liritish Columbia ores is concerned it tens
clearly shovn thai it could be speedily
settled, a; cornyuni.,-: were already
formed for the ertfeti vn of smelters at
Grand Forks and other points in the
dittrtct, work on which would be commenced as soon as it wus certain that
competition freight talcs would \}p ai-
for ed. .Viler fully Koing in'.o the matter .yid sa'isfylng himself that the fayrs
presented by the Boundary Creek delegation were as represented, Sir Wilfred
expatascd himself as seeing no reason
why the Kettle River Valley railway
should not be granted a charter. Thus
it will be seen that unless some unforeseen pbstacle arises the ei.uation looks
There ia no question but Hut a crisis
will be reached in the relations between
Sp.un and the United States as soon as
the Mime board of inquiry jias made its
lejjort. Whether or not the great disaster was due to design or accident, it is
difficult to see hov intervention -by' tbe
United Sty.tcs in Cuban afiairt can
longer be delayed.
The rcpoit of thc naval board is
looked lor now any day. It has been
sitting ovcr two weeks. From thc very
nature of the dis.a-.ler, the inexplicable
chaos of the wreck, the lack of conchi*
s.ve information ic^arding the existence
or non-existence o. mines or other ex-
plosives jn Havana harboi, and the
coirscof the investigation, generally,
the prediction is safe tbat the boird will
not be able li make any absolutely
authoritative statement as to the source
of the explosion. If, however, it is
shown to be reasonably certain tbat thc
cause was external, and Spain liable for
contributory negligenpe, a demand for
ir.demnirywould lie the basis of proceedings, while, on the other hand, if it
were shown 10 be cither accidental or
obscure and uncertain, the Maine incident will have to bc dismissed from consideration, and the Cuban status quo
would-be as it was before the disaster.
Intervention wou'd ihen be justified on
thc grounds of humanity and the horrors that have laid wistc the whole island and Sluin thousands un thousands
ot innocent men. women and children;
but it cannot be doubted that President
McKinley is getting ready to use force.
Intervention does not necessarily mean
war, however; as the signs art multiplying that tlie bankrupt and decaying
.Spanish monarchy will go tc the last extremity short uf dishonor and disgraceful humiliation. A demand, for the
stoppage ot this bnrbaroui strife would
undoubtedly lead to negotiations and
the liberation ol Cuba would be secured
on some satisfactory commercial basis.
Theic is a posyibiiity, however, that
Spain might prefer war as a means ol
letting go of Cuba and for tbe |. o.octlon
of thc present dynasty. It is plain that
Ihe United States is getting ready for
Sillier alternation.

The Vancouver World seems lo have
chnn;;ed its views considerably in regard ton charter being granted to the
Kettle River Valley railway. In its issue of March nth it editor-uily saya
"Acorrespondent writing froml Ittawa,
and who is in touch with the views of
the government upon many of 'he public questions which aro nov bring discussed in tbc commons and f-e sena'.e,
states tbat the Adu.iais'.ratic i's railway
policy at presont is the ono absorbing
tonic. Already we have stated that the
premier on Monday night announced
that it was the determination ofthe Government tin', in addition to building a
line of railroad from tbe Stickiite river
to Teslin lake, a decision had been
reached to cu'ry that line southward ro
some point or arm of the sea, in this
province which could be reached by
ocean-going craft. There is likewise a
very atroug fooling arising that Canada
has reached Unit period in her existance
when she will ha veto strike out for herself,
and her very first act in tbis direction,
w.it be, we believe, to make such
arrangements as will enable this
country to con'ril '.he trade of
thc northwest, or the Yukon country,
and that every legitimate means will
bc used to achieve ihis end. The rail
way situation in the southeastern section of the province islike.v'i3ecommand*
ing much attention. This is in corv.c-
quence of tbe railway which exi-its between thc different parties wbo are asking for a dominion charter* lor tbe construction of aline cf railway westward
Irom the Columbia river to Pentieton,
and these having many friends there, it
is naturally a keen rivalry, and lhe government is being irnpor'.uned on every
side to promise ad ta <*. particular line
by its supponers. The feeling is very
strong in favor of the immediate construction of tbis road. It is felt that
without it, an exceedingly rich district
will not prnspci or develop as it would
otherwise have done if it had increased
transportation facilities, The application, our correspondent -dels, of Mr. D.
C. Corbin and others fo a charter for
the building of a line into tbc Boundary
Creek and Kectle River districts is like
w ss being warmly supported. This is
owing largely to the fact '.bat Mr. Corbin is not asking for any subsidy, and
that bis ro.a.1 will bo practically an ex
tension of the Spokane Falls & No.-i!,-
em, and the furthy, fact that British
Columbia's representatives arc not a
unit on the question as to whether the
charter should be granted adds color to
the belief thit the government will no-
cede to Mr, Corbin's request, Then
there is a l.ar„rc number ol people who
think lhat the effect of cucii a road
would be to enable Amyric'tns'to transfer the smelting of Canadian ores from
our own to an alien c; untry. Many
contend lhat tbe development of thy
Boundary Creek district depends altogether upon railway construction, and
thit even if there was another road running from Robson, being practically an
extension of thc Ciow's N??l railway
into lioun iry creek, or coming from thc
coast by way cf Chilliwack and Pentieton it would still be desirable to allow
the Great Northern railway, through
Mr. Corbin, to have access into that
part of the province. The Boundary
Creek ores arc of low grade, and it is
held that ail possible competitive facil-
ties should be afforded ihem so as to
enable shippers to secure freight rates,
etc., at the very lowest possible figure.
Our correspondent adds that the question is a difficult one. to settle with anything like general satisfaction; but the
feeling is general in favor of the' first
possible railway facilities. So far as
the question of smelting British Columbia ores in United States territory is
I concerned that could be speedily settled
I by tbe imposition of an export duly,
The remedy, to be sure, is a drastic one,
and not founded upon the principals of
progressive Liberalism, but there are
occasions when it is proper to make exceptions to every rule, and this may be
an occasion when this will be done
The belief is general that once the railway problem in the southeastern section of the province is solved, by lines
being built and in 0 peration, that such
itst.p as this will be taken by the government, ami when it is taken, and nol-
withstanding lhe fuel that it may cieate

Hie   Tide    of    Prosperity    Turned
Towards   the   Boundary
The tide of prosperity bas commenced
Ito ebb this way. The first indication
■that it bas turned is tbe reported sale
■this week of the Grand Forks hotel to
iMr. Chas. Van Ness, tbe consideration
■being $5,ooo. Tbe furniture, good will
land business of the house are included
lin the deal, also two lots facing on First
btreet and directly in the rear of those
Ion which tbe hotel is located. This sale
lis looked upon as an important one as
IMr, Van Ness bas been operating in tbe
■ mining camps of HriCi. Columbia for
Jthe past several years, and it is a well
■known fact that whenever he branches
lout, it is a pretty sure indication that tbe
|town has good prospects of becoming a
"hummer." Mr. Van Nesa left )iVcd-
Inesday morning for R issland, but ex-
■peels to return in about to days when he
■will have the house overhauled from top
Ito bottom and when completed he expects to make it tbe leading hotel of the
Property Changing Han-Is.
Scott McRea,   largely  inteiested  in
[Deadwood camp,  and  locator  of  the
■ camp, was in tbe city on Wednesday
[shaking hands with his many friends
(bere.   Scott reports quite a number of
■ properties being worked in Deadwood
I camp and that a number of srorll sales
tare bein*? m.a^e every week in and
land around Greenwood. Scott is an old
Itimer in the Boundary country and has
[great faith in its future. He was the
■discoverer of the pass through which
I tbe Columbia & Western railway will
■be built into this country and bas done
■more prospecting in the North Fork
(district than any other -man in the
■country. Every year be makes a trip
Ito tbe head waters of the North Fork on
la hunting and fishing expedition and
■ does a little prospecting just to amuse
1 himself.
Asking for $150.
A petition is Lelng circulated by the
promoters of the First street bridgeask-
ing the city council to make an appropriation of $150 toward the building of
tbe bridge. The reason for this, as set
forth in the petition, is that the cost of
lis conairuciion is something over $300
more than it was estimated. The
cause of this deficeincy ,1s owing to the
fact that the high water has washed
away about 30 feet of the river banks
since the estimate was prepared, which
was early Inst spring, making it necessary to put in three spans instead of two,
as called for in the plans and specification, thus making the bridge nea'ly Oo
feet longer than was originally intended.
This additional work will necessarily
incur an extra expenditure of about
■&300, bring the total cost of the bridge
up to $2,000. Ot this amount $1,000 has
been appropriated by the government
on condition that the remainder of the
amount bc donated by the settlers and
citizens of Grand Forks. The MiNKrt
is of the opinion that every effort tending to optn an avenue leading into the
city, through which a dollar:: worth ol
tiado would be diverted, should receive
the hearty endorsement ol every public
spirited citijteo. Th; amount asked for
being only a small proportion of tbe
cost of the construction of this bridge,
and tbe benefit tbat it will ultimately
prove to the city is so apparent, there
should be no haggling over the proposition of the ci.y ap:ropriating $150 towards completing tbe work.

Should Be Patronized.
For  the past  week or ten days the
[Marcus stage has not been getting in until 3 and 3 o'clock in the morning, owing
[to the bad ^tate of the r tic's.   List season for nearly two months the stage laid
lover on the reservation, at Hall's Ferry,
Ion account of the roads, which was very
■unsatisfactory to the public    This seo-
lion it is tbe intention of Mr. Williams to
Intake the trips through from Marcus to
iGrand Forks and return daily without
■laying over.   In order to do this it bas
|b:en necessary to put  on   extra   stock
and the expense of operating the  line
has been largely increased,   In view of
[this fact everyone having  occasion to
■pass over tbe route should see that his
jticket reads via  William's  stage  line.
■Everyone knows that there   is   barely
■business enough to  keep  a  first-class
Jline running and the efforts of Mr. Wil-
■liams to give the public a good daily
■service should be encouraged.
A Big Marble Deal.
Among the many deals made in Grand
iFurks this week there was one worthy
■of note.    The marble playing craze bav-
ltng struck the town and the demand be-
ling greater than the supply in this cotn-
Imodtty, consequently "agates," 'chinas,''
["glassies" and "daubies" have been in
great demand, and the boy who has a
corner on the marble market is of more
(importance than a "Wall Street Bull or
iBear."   On  Monday one of the crack
•players got broke and being unable to
■get any of his associates to stake him he
■put up a six-bit jack-knife  *md four-bit
pocket book for a dozen marbles.   In
f.his connection Miss Z >s McCarter de-
fiires to inform her  young friends that
(ihe will have a complete variety of mir-
||>leB of every description in stock next
yeek and would be pleased to have a
hare of (heir p-rtronage.

Con Cosgrove, who  is  interested  in
f several North Fork properties, was an
I arrival in the city on Tuesday, from Re-
I public, where he has been for the past
| several months working on the '/Black
j Tail" mine   in   Republic camp.   The
J pbject of Con's visit is to do tbo assessment work on bis North]  Fork proper-
lies which will keep hjrq busy for the

Land Commission Sits.
Assistant Commissioner of Lands Noi-
ris of Vernon, was an arrival in ttw city-
last Monday having come fer the purpose of receiving evidence in tbe now
famous LaVally landdisputeatChristina
Like. Mr. Norrls received the evidence
in tbis case lest Tuesday and reserved
his decision until writlen arguments bv
the respective counsel had b,ecn sub
Tbc circumstances in connection with
this case are as follows: Some few years
ago Neai Hardy pre-empted the ground
in dispute, but failed to comply with the
law regarding residence and improvements, within the required li.Tie.
It seems then that Mr. James Dundee
of Rossland, acting on the supposition
that Mr. Hard's title had lapsed purchased this land from the government.
It then appears tbat Mr. Neai Hardy
abandoned his right to ihis preemption
and Mr. Eli LaVally at once pre-empted
it. The dispute is now between Dundee
and LaValley. A. C. Sutton is acting
for Mr, Dundee, while J. P. McLcoJ of
Midway is representing Mr. Lu Valley's
This is What Kimball Grts for His Greenwood Trip
The Kimball trial ended Tuesday by
PoliceMagistrate Johnson sentencing thy
accused to one month in the county jail
at hard labor, bis sentence to date from
the time of his arrest. The evidence
"in the case showed that the accused was
under the influence of liquor when the
check was given him, and that even
when arrested by Officer Diuimore at
Greenwood, was still intoxicated. This
fac, although not excusing the crime,
doubtless bad its influence with the raag-
istra e and had much to do with the
shortness of tie sentence.
Tbo prisoner was dofendid by Mayor
Manly, whtle Clerk of the Peace MeMynn prosecuted for the crown and
Barrister H. S. Cayley acted for the private prosecutor.
Getting Ready for Work,
The farmers throughout lhe valley
are getting ready to commence their
spring work. Those who are in a position to know say that the acreage sown
this season to grain will be considerably larger than last year. Mr. McCool
who is operating the Johnson ranch, just
below town, expects to put in about 120
acres in wheat and h*)s already commenced plowing. If the Boundary
country moves as is expected to tbis
season it wil) tax the valley to raise
enough to jupply tl.-: market.
The Texas Sold.
The Texas, a promising mineral
claim in Prjvidence camp, owned by
Messrs. Wisem in and Van Ness of this
city, was sold tbis week lo Mr. Chas.
Collins of Greenwood, the consideration
being $1,000 cash. There was considerable work done on this property and the
showing was above the average. It is
understood that Mr. Collins expects to
develop the property the coming season.
Beautifying His Yard.
Mr. Chas. Cumings is putting in bis
spare time .tt pres.nt in getting ready to
beautify the yard around his horn; this
spring. Hi expects to enclose ij with a
neat picket fence and set out flowers,
shiubery, evergreens, etc. Charles has
a nice home and with hut little labor
can make it a very atlractiue place.
City License Commissioners Meet.
Mayor Manly and Police Magistrate
Johnson held a session of the city license
board last Tuesday, when the Mayor issued a temporary permit to Mrs. Preslar tor the Preslar house in order to give
her time to present a legal application
as her present application for a license
was irregular, and could not be considered by the board.

A   Stir   in   Pierce  District.
There is already evidence of a stir in
lhe Pierce district for the season of 1808.
Placer miners are preparing for work,
which will soon commence, as the snow is
melting rapidly. Most of those, going in
now are men who have heen working
claims for years past, succeeding iu cleaning up enough in the fall to make them
good wages.
Tlie western portion of the camp appears to bo the most, active part of the
district, while most encouraging reports
come from the MusRelshell district, 20
miles east of Pierce The work in the
latter district is mostly confined to
quartz, since the discovery of a rich ledge
last summer by some miners who were
praeer mining. The rock assayed $000 to
the ton, and occasioned much excitement I
at thc time. Work lias been kept up on
the Pioneer mine, and with the aid of an
nrastu some ore lias heen crushed, which

men well. A shaft is being sunk and arrangements arc being made to put a five-
