At the Providence 35 men started work Monday morning drifting north and  south on the lead on the 400 foot level. Drifting and stoping are also being  done in the south tunnel on the 300 foot level.  The new 90 horse power boiler is working splendidly. The boiler uses wood,  of which there is an abundant supply near at hand, for fuel. It is intended to  put in an air compressor of a capacity of between seven and ten drills in the  near future. At present two steam drills are being used. The force of miners  will be increased continually so as to have over fifty men employed by the time  the new compressor is installed.  Messrs. Madden, Heeney and Fitzgerald of the board of directors left for  Chicago on Saturday last, where they will likely place an order for the compressor plant. They were much pleased with the mine, especially the 400 foot  level, where there is a foot of high grade ore. The shaft is to be sunk to the 500  foot level soon.    Large shipments will be resumed in a few weeks.  Will soon Strike Ore ixfr Xiong  Tunnel���������Vein 18 Inch  The editor was a visitor at the  Strathmore mine on Monday of this  week.

Summer has come���������apparently.  Wild strawberries are now ripe on  the Anaconda townsite.  Mr. F. Keffer will return today from  a business trip to Nelson.  More painting is going on in town.  Smith & McEwen's store is receiving  a coat.  Mr. J. E. McAllister will return  from his long stay in New York City  in a few days.  The celebration held on the 24th. in  Grand Forks was a great success. The  weather was very fine.  It is reported that the Crescent is  about to be sold to some Chicago mining men.  On the Betts and Hesperus the tunnel is in 470 feet. It is expected to tap  the lead at a depth of 225 feet soon.  The mine is located on Fourth-of-July  Creek near the Great Northern track.

stoped out from this point, and a carload is at present ready for shipment.
At the bottom of this shaft the ore
body faulted, and was recovered only
after a 70 foot drift to the east. The
new tunnel will give much depth
on the vein snd open up a large stoping
The ore is_ silver-lead and carries
from $20 to $30 in gold, making a total value of over $100 per ton high
grade and $25 to $30 second class. The
walls, both hanging and foot, are very
well defined on the Strathmore, and
point to a constant vein.

of the cutting, and at several other
places holes have been run in on the
ore for several feet. This lead averages from a foot to thirty six inches in
At a point 45 feet east of the main
ore body a new ledge has been uncovered for a distance of 300 feet. This
ore is a new discovery and is as large
or larger than the western body. Some
very nice ore has been taken out of
these new surface drifts. This lead is
parallel with the old vein and has the
same dip. It will probably be encoun-
tere<J in the tunnel at a distance of 40
to 50> feet from the first lead.
A good trail has been built to this
property from Anaconda by way of the
Mountain Queen and the former Anaconda powder house.
The north end of   Greenwood  should
have a boom in the near   future,   with
35 men working at the Providence and l\
