Mr. S. A. Pursell received injurios from a

A good advertisement in a live paper is
a sign of respectability; it carries with it a
certain amount of confidence, for it bears
upon the face thestampof prosperity, and
prosperity means quick sales, and quick
sales means buying for cash and giving
your enstomers the advantage. It is a fact
long established beyond dispute, that the
man who advertises extensively and judi
ciously has the advantage over one who has
his capital tied up in shelf worn goods.
When you buy keep this in mind.
To keep posted on the ever chnuging
fashions requires considerable time and
study and many ladies who dostro to bo
tastefully dressed have not the timo to
give the subject much attention. These
should call at Mrs. Rinchnrt.s millinery
establishment for anything they need in
that line, as she keeps thoroughly posted
on all the latest deigns and keeps none
but the most skilled dressmakers and
trimmers, there being two or three con
stantly employed, Tho large assortment
of goods kept constantly on hand is com
pleto in every department, and must bo
seen to bo appreciated. 10-23-Sw
Mr. Wm. Johnson, brother of Jnmcs
Johnson of this city, who lias been suffering
for live or six years past, from an injury to
his leg caused by a horse falling on it, had
it amputated last Tuesday. The operation
was performed very successfully by Drs.
Day, Cromwell and Dcoring. It would be
difficult to estiinntothc amount of suft'ering
endured by Mr. Johnson on account of tho
injury to his leg. He has had to go on
crutches for three or four years past and
was unable to get relief. He employed
various physicians and went to Portland
once, when nn operation was performed for
a disease of the bone, but it seemed to do
no good. About four mouths ago another
operation Was performed in this city by
Drs. Ewingand Day and the patient seemed
to do well for a time but of late it has told
on his gcncrnl health and an amputation
became necessary lo save Ills life. He was
given an anesthetic and remained under
the influence ot it for about an hour and a
half while the operation wus being per
formed. Tho amputation was made at the
upper third of the thigh which is one of tho
most dangerous to make. The patient is
doing quite well although there are sonic
dangers yet to encounter before tho wound
heals up. It is hoped by all that he will

Some Kcconily Discovered
Sources of Wealth.
A FIELD FOR THE PROSPECTOR.
Rominlccncc3 of a Noted Scsut and
Union county has the onor ot being the
leading gold and silver produclnc county of
the State, although jot in tho first stage of
its mining development. Tho ninny rich
mines now being worked within its borders
are but auguries of what will bo when ex
plored and tho pick and shovel of the ad
venturous minor has opened tho doorways
to its hidden wealth. Among tho various
districts of the county, none present a
brighter outlook than that in tho vicinity
of Sanger, just ont of Union.
We had the pleasure, a few days ago, of
a lengthy talk on mines and mining mat
ters, wlili Mr. A. Bush Bowc, a practical
miner, who, in company with Chas. Fobare,
had just returned from tho Sanger district
whero they had been doing some assess
ment work on the
WIN I DA MINK.
owned by C. L. Blakesloo it Son and Chas,
Fobare. Mr. Bowe is well pleased with the
outlook, and from him we gleaned many
items of interest. The "Winida'1 has
well defined ledge about six or seven fee
between walls and has every indication of
being a good property. The ore, of whic.1
he had several samples, nrill assay from
$15 to $20 per ton,
situated just nbovo the Sanger mill, and
owned by Samson Boy, will no doubt prove
to bo one ot the best mines in tho district
It is opened in three places by tunnels
which show a well defined lcdtro of about
two and one-half feet of solid quartz whlcl
will average about 35 in gold, per ton
Some of tho assays made have went as hlgl
as ? 202 per ton. Mr. Boy is now erecting a
now mill just below Sanger. If tho mine
proves a success, and there is no doubt i
will, a new tdwn to be known as "Gem
City" will lie started at this place.
Tim noii ixonnsoi.ii
is nn extension of the '"Gem" and is owned
by A. J. Myers. This'inino shows, eonsid
erablo free gold and has every indication of
making a valuable property when thorough
ly developed. Mr. Myers is owner of a store
in Sanger, and is also postmaster.

Messrs. Wise, White it Buckland recent
ly opened up some new mines on Paddy's
Paradise which promiso to bo a veritable
bonanza. In ;i forty day's run with a small
arastra thev cleaned up $3,500 in gold. It
is said they are making arrangements to
put up a five-stamp mill on this property
Other new properties arc being workec
around near Sanger, and there is every in
dication of a boom in tho near future. At
the KANnr.n mini:,
owned by the Bradley Mining Co., therois
now employed about sixty men, nnd their
ten-stamp mill is kept running night and
day. This is one of the richest mines in
Eastern Oregon. Work has been steadily
prosecuted for a nuniborof years and the
output of bullion has been wonderful
Sir. Bowc said ho was shown a choice piece
of ore from this mine which was claimed
assayed $12,000 per ton. llo showed us
some .splendid specimens of oro from
the "Winida," "Gem," and "Bob Inger
soil'' mines, and discoursed at considera
ble length on their relative value. It may
not bo out of place to remark in this con
nection that Mr, Bowo is

himself. Hois a thorough mining man and
has been connected with sonic of the rich
est initios in the southwest, and was a dele
gate to the Alining Exchange held at Kan
sas City last March. From 187(5 to '78 ho
was chief of scouts at tho San Carlos In
diau reservation in Arizona, and ids life
has been one of continual adventures. An
Arizona paper says of him : "At tho ago of
20 years ho was a noted und dreaded chief
of a band of Apache scouts In tho employ
of tho government. Ho did more service
than all tho government troops combined
When ho followed a band of maurauders he
followed to catch and fight them, and the
freshening of a trail gladdened his heart.
The hostilos feared him as they .feared tho
Evil Spirit." Altogether Mr. Bowo is a
typical specimen of the men who conquered
tho western wilderness, and it Is quite in
