Wm. Ashmead, a young farmer living
near Island City, went to Im Grande on
Tuesday of last week to do some trading.
He put his hor.-e up in the McClure
stable, saying he would return for it in
the evening. He made some purchases
at .ome of the stores and paid bills to
the amount of $200 or $300. after which
he returned to the stable and tied some
bundles on the luck of his saddle, pre
paratory to starting home, but before
departing invited the hostler at the
stable to repair to a saloon anil take a
drink. The hostler accepted, and the
two men went to a saloon. After taking
it drink the hostler returned to the
stable. Ashmead left the saloon but
never called for his horse, and up to the
present time nothing has been seen or
hoard of him. It is the opinion of a
majority of the citizens of La Grande
that ho skipped out, but others think
that he was foully dealt with, as it was
thought that he had nlwut $!00 on his
person. An attachment was served on
omo of his property a short time ago
ind it may lie that he has left the coun
try. At any rate the allair is slirouded
in nivsterv and nas tne appearance- in

Geo. Lindgrccn came down from Cor
nucopia yesterday. He informs us that
io and his partners, Fred Stem and
Chas. Delta, have just placed a Hunt-
ngton mill on their property, the Nor
way mine, but owing to tho early fall of
snow they will be unable to put it in
running order this winter. They will
resume work in the early spring. They
uive a good ledge with a live foot vein
of free milling ore.
The Davis quartz mill at Cornucopin
tas been shut down for the winter on
account of the deep snow, but will lxi
started up again in the spring.
The O. G. M. Co;, of Cornucoiia, are
still running their chlorinator, success
fully treating ore.
While the mining camp of Cornucopia
s quite dull at present, everyone con
nected with tho mines has great hopes
of the future prosperity of the camp.
Several small deals are under way which
promise to be of great benefit to all
There is about twenty inches of snow
at Cornucopia at present.
Another rich strike is reported in the
vicinity of Sanger, near the Lily White
mine. The ore is said to be tho richest
ever exhibited from anv mine in Union
A. Howard was down from Telocaset
Tuesday. He is interested m some of
the mines in that section and reports
great hopes of the future prosperity and
permanency of the camp.
Mr. H. 0. Deirks, of Milwaukee, Wis
cousin, who is interested m tne leio
caset mines, is in the city and gives a
very favorable report concerning their
development and feels confident that
his property is very valuable. A few
davs ago Mr. Luther Wagner, a gentle
man of prominence in tho mining world
as an expert, visited these mines and
he, nlso, reported favorably on them
Mr. Dierks and associates will continue
development of the mines all winter and
it is very probable a mill will bo in
operation on them in the near future.

The tramp swindler has taken a long
breath, spit, on his hands and grasped u
linn hold upon a new swindle. Two
rogues watched the newspapers for
estray notices and ono of them goes and
looks at tho animal. Of course the
unsuspecting farmer, on application,
shows tho beast and tho fellow decides
it is not his, and then returns to his
partner and describes the animal mi
nutely to him. No. 2 then goes to the
farmer and and after proving by a thor
ough description that he is the rightful
owner of the animal, says he cannot well
take it away and oilers to sell it at a
rgain. The farmer buys and in a few
days the rightful owner comes along and
claims tho animal and the farmer is out
just that much. Exchange.
Union Is In It.
We were somewhat surprised last
week while in Union, to beo the sub
stantial improvements that aro going on

tion of the state. Tho enterprising
people of that little city havo just right
to bo proud of their school building,
since thoy havo put their right foot
forward to securo its construction, and
now that this is dono thoy need not fear
that a stranger will go away, after hav
ing visited their place, saying that
Union is in need of educational advan
tages. Tho board has used good judg
ment in Uh selection of teachers for tho
present torm, and no doubt a jirosperous
term will bo tho result. Elgin Recorder.
