will cominonco piping in pay sand.
Mr. Butler, purchaser of tho Zum-

about 10 feet deep, but did not leorn (

Jim Culver is mining, and has taken
advantage of tho bountiful supply of

MesfM. Pago and Tom Kelly, lessees
of tho Deyvo mine nt China flat, have
been busy repairing Humes and ditchei
and commenced piping. Thoy have
had considerable trouble with their

Lon Corbett, half owner in the
Itoyal, one of tho best in the now well

nn nssavor of Lit Grande, and showed I
$55 to the ton $45 of silver nnd $10
of gold. Tho owners of tho mine nro
euthusinstic over the results thus far,
nnd nro pushing tho work rapidly.
Thoy boliovo tho ore is vnluublo enough
to be shipped with profit. It costs,
according to previous estimates, for
wagon and railroad freightage nnd for
