"When you wish to know what

sure to be followed by fine weath

overcoat with you. if you are go

son is this. When the air is be
coming charged with electricity

ing all lesser ones toward it until
it gathers into a shower, and, on
the contrary, when the fluid is
passing off" or diffusing itself,
then a large cloud will be seen

May 19, 18S9.
Ed. News: I herewith send
you a few facts from our burg,
that your readers may know that
our last letter was not a humbug.
Some of the substantial results
of the past winter's work are as
follows: From the Colorado
mine we noticed 1-1G ounces of
gold dust, value $2,100, the pro
duct of four weeks run with five
stamps. We learned the result
of only one clean-up from the
Keystone mine. That was 42
pounds of amalgam, value $2,100
out of 70 tons of ore. They have
ground 300 tons of equally as
good good rock, which would
make about $1)000 thus far this
spring. There are three arastras
at work, but as they have made
no clean-ups we cannot state re
sults at present. The Colorado
increased their force to
seven men. They have also let a j
contract for 100 feet of tunnel.
They are working now on a three
foot vein of nice looking ore. As
another indication of prosperity
we noticed, was the arrival of a
wagon loaded with giant powder,
caps and fuse; it was brought in
by our esteemed citizen Mr. S
Hough. Sam said he thought of
all the mischief he overdid in his
life while joltiitg over the rough
road between this place and lia-
ker Citv, with such a dangerous
load, but he savs "I not here and
don't you forget it."
It is all life and activity in
Quartzburg at present, and I
once more reiterate my former
statement, that there will be
more gold dust shipped from this
camp than ever before in any one
season since its discovery.
