Gold In Heavy Deposits Is Struck
In Mine Near the CKy of
Eugene, Oregon.
Tho Great Northern mine onco
yielded good returns to the owners,
says tho Eugene Register. They
worked for a long time on a rich
fissure vein, and the yield of gold
was highly satisfactory to tho man
agement. The vein, however, ran
out, and much money was spent by
them in equipping tho mine and run
ning an eighty-foot tunnel in search
of tho mother lode. When tho pres
' ent management took hold of It they
changed the course of tho tunnel
beenat work for some time in that-
almost at right angles, and have
Yesterday H. C. Mahon received
word from W. T. Shurtleff, who is
tho manager of tho work, that he
had struck the main ledge for which
they were hunting at eighty feet be
low the surface. The ledge Is of
great width, probably about thirty
feet, and tho ore Is of a free milling
grade and shows excellent values,
There Is probably no limit to tho
amount of ore that can bo taken out
Tho mine Is equipped with an
automatic tramway from tho mouth
of tho tunnel to the mill, which is
about as complete as anything of Its
kind in Oregon. The mill, too, was
put in at great expense, and there is
fi plenty of water to operate It.

Adjacent Farm Yields Thirteen Tons
niul Owner Realizes 1350
Good Profit.
Since tho descriptive article in
The Statesman a few days ago con
corning the Board of Trade, tho
Tooms on State street, Just off Com
mercial, have been visited by an in
creased number of easterners and
other home seekers, say htat paper.
Via examples ot what can bo done on
tho lana In the vicinity of Salem,
two cases were cited to tho reporter,
WjUch illustrate the productiveness
and money-making capacities of the
small fruit farm.
Tho first case is that of n family
living in Salem. Tho family have a
cherry tree In their door yard which
this year boro half a ton of tho fruit.
Members of tho family picked the
chenles and sold them at five cont3
a pound, making a clean profit of
$50. Multiply tho ono tree by sev-
eial hundred, or tho number that
would bo accommodated on a few
acres and tho result will bo surpris
ing, or course, tho more expansive
grower would iiavo to npy a cent a
pound for picking, but tho pioflt in
either case would bo wonderful.
Tho (second case is that of Mr. Fer
guson, a farmer living In Poll; coun
ty, a few miles fiom tho otcol bridge,
llo had 143 trees in Ills orchard,
which,, as will bo soon, extended a
llttio more than an acre, sinco 108
trees- is the usual number to tho
acre. The trees jleldcd between
thirteen and fourteen tons of cher
ries. It cost one cont a pound for
their picking, and they were sold for
five cents a pound. Figure It out.
Supposing tho man had thirteen and
one-half tons to toll, ho would re
ceive about $1350, minus tho cost
of picking, which would be $270.
Leaving out the iriginal cost of the
trees and tho expense of cultivation,
which might bo covered by raising
vegetables and small fruit between
tho rows, tho profit would bo $1080,
a neat sum for the fruitgrower.

An expert in rock who has been
in town this week consulting with Z.
T. Johnson, declares that Myrtle

ranged to come hero for tho rock
needed in the construction work to be
done on tho bay. I. W. Billings haB
secured a contract to furnish some

struction work on tho bay.
It Is likewise understood that
builders on the bay will look to
Myrtle Pojnt to furnish gravel for
their work on tho bay and they have

In Demand In Far North
Many Calls For Apples and Peaches
Products lii'iiiK Good
Pi Ices.
Prices received by tho Douglas
County Fruit Growers' Association
for fruit shipped from Douglas
county is far In advance of tho rev
enue derived in any former year and
the members of this association are
finding a ready sale for their prod
ucts, says tho Umpqua Valley News.
Manager E. P. Drew informs tho
Nows the association has sold so far
this season 3,000 boxes of cherries.
Of this amount 2,300 boxos were dis
posed of at ton cents a pound. A
consignment of 700 boxes to Denver,
ho says, reached that point in bad
condition owing to the refusal of
Wells Fargo Express Co. to ship the
fruit via the northern route, although
earnestly requested to do so by the
local manager.
Mr. Drew says that when Douglas
county has sufficient cherry acreage
to ship In carload lots the farmers
will command tho highest prices
paid. Cherries shipped east in car
l&ts, packed In good shape, will bring
20 cents per pound and upwards, aji
against 10 cents now bolng received
for tho fruit shipped by express.
The highest price so far paid this
season for cherries was $2.75 for
eight pound boxes. A shipment of
four varieties sold as follows: Royal
Ann, 75 cents a box; Black Repub
lican, $1.00; Bing, $1.50, and Lam
bert, $1.75 per box of eight pounds
Tho association has sold no fruit
to canneries, the prices quoted being
five .cents per pound for Royal Ann
cherries delivered,, with no demand
for BIngs or Lamberts. Much of the
fruit shipped has gone as far north
as Nome, Alaska, and found ready
sale at good prices.
, The- first shipment of peaches was
made July 4 and brought $1.50 for a
20-pound box net. Many inquiries
are being received right along for
fruit from this county and apples es
pecially are in demand. h'
