and began breaking up the chairs,
w which the fairy who holdn sway
there objected, caiicu in her figut
inruanaml trouble began. Tlic
jijturber was ousted, knocked out
in the first round ami left the itn

gutter, rcacc necmcu 10 oc re

lime after the inmates began
quarrelling among themselves and
suddenly through the fog and gloom
of the night the shrill voice of the
female shrieked out help! hclpl
lielol It seems that the lover who
waxes fat on the charms of this
fallen creature hud got his tank full
and being elated with his prowess
in having thrown out the previous
disturber, took n notion that his
ilave and producer deserved a beat
ing to warm up her lagging love
nd make the flame burn brighter.
No one within sound of the cries for
help cared to be mixed up in the
diigraceful row and so let them
fight it out, and it is learned that
this soiled dove was badly beaten
by her paramour. No arrests were
made. Several times of late dis
graceful rows have occurred at this
tame place nud leniency has been
meted out to the participants and
is at this time, but the next time
trouble of this kind happens at this
resort all the parlies will be shown
up and the authorities asked tore
move them out of the city limits.

honors for Cottage Grove by bring
ing the medal home with her.
About twenty people from Cottage
Urove accompanied the contestants

The Champion group of mines
has been bonded by P. J. Jennings.
llic intention is to consolidate the
Helena No. 2 with this group and
make a large concentrating plant of
the Champion mill. In the lower
tunnel of Helena No. 2 they have
discovered by crosscutting that the
miners have been driving alone
side of a large body of ore which is
base, containing gold, copper, sil
ver, lead nud making n very high
grade concentrate. James Duval Is
superintending the work at No. 2
and Champion. They arc building
a trail from the Champion mill to
the buildings on No. 2 where a
tunnel is to be constructed and
driven 600 feet this winter. Mr.
Jennings says the company has
plenty of money in the treasury to
keep up the developing work for
A WORTHY IMI'KOVKMKNT.
Just before the last storm John
Stoneberg and Baker & Johnson
lad a number of loads ol filling,
rock nnd gravel hauled in front of
their places of business on River
street and raised the street grade to
the required standard at their own
expense, half way across the street
and the full length of their property.
This portion of roadway belongs to
the county, and as there was no
ikelihood of the county making
the improvement this year, these
enterprising citizens did it out of
their own pockets. They now have
n dry frontage before their places of
business, where heretofore was deep
mud in the winter season. Such
enterprise is very commendable and
it is to be hoped that other property
owners will do something in the
direction of putting their property
in passable shape.
