rival from that place, learned that tho Ore
gon Gold Mining Company, under its new
management, is pushing things in a man
ner that indicates ihat there is money bo
hind that company, and that they intend
to use it in developing that country of hid
den treasures, and demonstrate to the min
ing world that Cornucopia is what her dis
coverers claim she is a land of burled
gold. The company is employing miners
as fat as they arrive in tho town, and this

Tho Centennial Hotel.
Nearly three years ago tho management
of this now well known and popular cara
vansary was assumed by Mr. A. J. Good
brod, a gentleman qualified in every re
spect to properly conduct an establishment
of the kind. Hy tho employment of com
petent and obliging help, and by his per
sonal supervision of all the different de
partments of the house, the nanio of tho
Centennial was soon a household word
with tho traveling pulic, and especially
with the commercial men, tho latter class
often spending several days in recreation
and rest, enjoying the hospitalities of this
favorite abode. Tho dining room is a
model of neatness and cleanliness and is
presided over by three charming and at
tentive waitresses. The table is furnished
with all tho luxuries tho market atrbrds.
Considerable patronage is given the hotel
by our own citizens who take a pardonable
pride in tho institution and lend all In
their power to keep the house up to tho
highest standard of excellence. May the
