During tlie few warm days of
Inst week, Hol Veatch became rest'
less nml started out on his minimi
routul-up of rattlesnakes and iiic
ceeded in capturing two or three of
the venomous reptiles. One large
fellow carrying to rattles lie cap

Hiinkenliip tluiH in his pocket for

little too frisky to suit even Hob's
usual nerve when he killed it. lie

had it on display in the New lira

he has visited them all hi this
neighborhood with murderous in

.Since the farewell party tendered
Charlefl Vnndenburg and wife lust
week upon the "supposition that
they were soon to move to Eugene,
Mr. Vrndenburg has accepted a
position with the new hardware
firm and will remain here perma
nently. It is the opinion of a
Nugget man that Charley was only
bluffing nbout leaving Cottage
Grove and took this means to in
duce his friends and neighbors to
bring in a (cast. It is possible
however, that he never before real
ized that lie possessed so many
generous friends in this place.
Anyway hc has decided to remain
here, and the Ntigget is pleased to
announce- the fact.

Wednesday morning a hobo sold
n knife to Marion Vcatch of the
meat market of Garoulte & Veatch.
Mr. Ventch notified Marshall Mc
Farland and the officer began n
search for the man. In he vicin
ity of the planing mill he found him
nnd a search resulted 4in the find
ing of n dozen or more of pocket
knives of the cljenpcr variety and
three hunting knives. They were
nil new and many of them had the
trade mark upon them, while no in
formation of a robbery of this kind
had been received by Marshal Mc
Farlaml at the time, it is thought
the hobo had broken into some store
the niglU before and helpct (himself.
He .wan lodged in jail. Not finding
iiuy trace of the stolen property lit
was released next morning.

B. E. Hawley, well known in
Bohemia mining circles, recently
bad a most miraculous escape from
suffocation. He, with seven other
miners, were employed in the Gold
bug mine. near Glendale, and were
working on the 300 foot level when
n box of powder was ignited, and
the deadly gasscs from the burning
powder had almost suffocated them
before they could escape by means
of a cage to the surface,
The McFarland market which
only recently was refinished iuside
was leased this week by Messrs.
Bartels & Ernest of Portland.
These gentlemen come with the
recommendation of being ex
perienced and successful market
men, and they expect to have their

MADlt A RA1HH.
Many people here will be inter
ested in anything relative to J. H.
McGec who for n number of years
was owner of the 'Annie mine"
now known as the Noonday. After
n number of years of operation in
the "Annie," he became bankrupt
and left this Section owing many
labor bills and some store accounts.
At the time there was much
difference of opinion as to McGce's
management and honesty, many
being highly indignant at the way
he treated his men claiming that
the mine was in pay ore and that
many thousands of dollars of bull
ion was shipped out. Others were
more liberal in their opinions and
while Mr. McGec has 110 doubt
many enemies here, he also has
many friends all ol whom will read
with interest the news of a recent
success in Nevada. This wcik
Tom Johnson received a letter from
Harry Dell announcing the fact that
Mr. McGec has recently sold a
mine oil Muuey Creek, Nevada,
for a big stake and is again 011 his
feet and in a prosperous condition.
Mr. McGec was an old man when
tic left here and his friends say hc
must be nearly Ho years of age at
the present time. When he left
here, so the story goes, he went
out a proud old man, clad in an old
suit of clothes with his "blankets
011 his back." Such is the fate of
Mesdamcs H. D. Scott and T. D.
Aubrey, who were the prime
movers in the entertainment given
two week's ago for the benefit of
the reading room, entertained their
friends who assisted them on the
program, at the reading room par
lors last Friday evening. The
Indies arc charming hosts,, and a
oleasant time was had by those
who were favored. The evening
was spent in interesting games, the
discussion of n splendid luncheon
and a jolly good time. At n late
hour, the guests after tendering
their appreciation to the ladies who
io generously received them, de
parted for their homes, feeling well
repaid for their services rendered in
the free reading room benefit.
Those present were Mesdamcs
Scott, Aubrey, McCurdy, Abrams,
McClollau, Howard. Atkins; Misses
Wettle, Patterson, Hart, White,
Aubrey; Mers. Scott, Aubrey,

young people decided they would
surprise one of their friends that
evening, and the fortunate person
was Miss Ethel Nokes of this city.
They marched in on her very much
to the young Indy's surprise, and
prepared to spend a pleasant even

pointed. Games and music were
indulged in until a late hour when
all departed for their homes.
