Several changes have b������en made this  week in Ihe Creek Hights table on page  three.  ''Warmest" now and hereafter means  therrm, meter in the shade insead of in  the sun as before. The mercury is  from ten to fifteen degrees higer hi the  sun than in the s^iade. The change  was made on account of the readings  in the sun being rendered too high because of reflections.

The most serious fire so far was in  the gulch between the Mother L<>de  and the Sunset mines. Here the fire  came down the gulch and threatened  both the trestle a, d the Sunset buildings. Men were sent down from the  Mother Lode to fight the flames.  Trenches were du.; around the buildings aid trestle and the earth spread a-  bout to tetop the fire. Ihtse were successful in the end.
