Two drummers met at the Hotel
Sherwood on Friday last, joshed
each other in a genial way, ate' at
the same table, listened to the
same phonograph until u o'clock,
ate at the same time and table next
day, and sat down in the lobby of
the hotel after dinner to enjoy a
cigar and relate some of their ex
periences on the road.
Finally one of them spoke about
the time he was a boy in a certain
Indiana town; and the other knight
of the grip exclaimed: "II II I
was a boy in that town what's yer
"My name is Ogden, Harry
Yes? Well Holy Moses! My
name is Fowler, Iew Fowler."
"Well I'l be d !!! boys to
gether! where's Hen ?"
In business in A "
"Where is John H ?"
"Oh, he's in Texas."
"And where is Maggie aud
"Married both married."
And then those two drummers
got mixed up into one of the most
animated conversations over old
times when they wore knee pants
with the behind most end badly in
need of repair, punched bull frogs
with sharp sticks, got whipped by
the same school teacher, and sucked
"Remember old Sollcngcr?" said
one. "You bet I do; old saddle
bags you mean?" "Yes; well one
day I fixed one of those pointed
things with paper on the end of it.
Sollenger was sitting in front of his
store with his feet propped up. I
threw the pointed concern and it
stuck in his shoe sole. Sollenger
says to me: 'Come here and pull
it out.' I walked up, and he kicked
me about twenty-five teet out into
Train time says the clerk."
"Goodbye," says one. "I'l see
you in S " says the other, and
the two men drifted apart again
It is reasonable to suppose that there can bo but one Cripple creek
to excite the mining world or that Colorado, Montana and California
can be the only stales that can produce rich mines in the same forma
tion and character of fissure veins mineralogists and geologicalist have
found essential in the requirements of permanent mines. Why cannot Bo
hemia with its once volcanic mountains which is penetrated with
fissure veins and heavily impregnated with gold, silver, copper and
lead, and has every feature of formation that proves permanency in
Colorado's richest mines. It iH safe to say that when one half the
money has been spent developing the prospects of Bohemia that is
spent in the remote districts hunting for quartz, or spent in other states
for the same purpose, there will be many mines equally as rich and as
famous as any of those that are the topic of the day in the mining
circles, for future possibilities take this district comprising of over 30
square miles of Lane and Douglas counties, and which is as little known
among mining men as any camp west of the Rockies and compare it
with the famous Cripple creek, the gem ot the gold producers of the ,
union, which once was volcanoes and covered with surface lava, called
andesite breccia or pudden stone, and is penetrated with gold bearing
fisures. Cripple creek is not alone in the leading formations for Bo
hemia lias just as good fissure veins penetrating porphry. Igneous rock,
lava, etc., and especially andesite of a decomposed nature, which has
been the formation of some of the greatest mines ever discovered. Bo
hemia is among the highest peaks of the Calapooia ranges from 4000 to
7000 feet, connecting the Cascade range, and in line with the mother
lode. The camp is practically a new one as far as development is con
cerned. What work has been done was very quietly and returned
handsome profits. None of the mines are worked at a depth to exceed
400 feet wilil .- they showed marked improvements in size of ore bodi.esd
and values improved as depth was gained. The ore is porous and
easily worked in m-wt cases and is free milling, and in some cases it is
heavy in copper, zrio and lead. Nearly all the ledge croppmgs of
which th ?re are thous uuls in the district carrying more or less gold
values but in sinking or drifting the value.? increase with depth. It
would be useless to describe the Bohemia district as it is without more
space for 110 mining man who is used to the showings of other camps
would believe one half of it. But had all the noted mines today been
left in the hands of the prospectors with capital we would have no
dividend paying mines, and that is where we stand today in Bohemia
The encouragements are far greater today for Bohemia than the Baker
City district ever had and the mines there have proved rich without
doubt. It might be well for Oregon capitalists to investigate their own
fields who have been searching the remote corners and isolated regions
of the far north hunting for mining investments. We also invite all
capital who want gold mines to come to BohenMa and inspect the
prospects that are daily discovered. It would beyond all doubt inter
est the most of them to see the large bodies of high grade ore, which
can be bought from the prospector at good figures but when middle
men get a hold of some of the prospects and expect to make $25,000
011 a S5000 option it is not to be wondered that the camp is held back.
This is not one case the writer refers to, but that has been the case all
the way through. I advise all who want to buy to come to the owner
direct, and save enough on the purchase price to develop the property
into a high tone proposition. Cottage Grove is the gateway to the
One of the many discoveries of Bohemia that offers a promising
future is that of the Laura group owned by the Le Roy Bros, in the
Champion barin upon which they intend to do developing wcrk as soon
as supplies can be got in. It has all the features of a high grade
property and will bear inspection.
Another rich strike in the last sixty days is the Grizzly Mountain
Prospecting and Milling Company. They are rushing work with a
small crew of five men getting out oro for a shipment. The ore mns
high in copper and silver and about $8 in gold with 7 feet of ore in the
base, all of the east drift which adds to the future of Bohemia.

The Pacific covers 68,000,000
miles, the Atlantic 30,000,000, and
the Indian Ocean, Arctic and
Antarctic 42,000,000. To stow
away the contents of the Pacific it
would be necessary to fill a tank
one mile long, every day for 440
years. Put in figures, the Pacific
holds in weight 948,000,000,000,-

miles. Its waters weighs 325,000.
