John MmfKflcfcl, "Miucrnljolin,"
was in town fioin lloheinia' this
week niiil iiniile the Nugget n
planum t cull. John is the bend
and general fnelrtliim of the little
village of MlnerHville tit the fool ol
the inoiintiiin thin Hide of the llnrd
scrahhh usccnl. He has made it
viint collection of the minerals of
Uohcnlin district'. ' Me has made
upward of 3500 ti nnnys of the ores
of Hint district and is perluitm the
best qualified man iu that district
to' give n comprehensive find ex
haustive opinion on the possi
bilities of thai vast mineral .one.
At his large assay office iu Miners
villc he now has on exhibition over
500 specimens of oie from the va
rious ledges and cropping through
out that district. They are not
little pieces of cue. but big chunks
that weigh from 10 to 2.5 pounds,
ho that any mining man iu looking
over his exhibit can In an hour or
two acquaint himself with the
character of the greater pari of the
mineral iu that one. lie is now
engaged iu erecting a building to
be 24x43 feet for the future home
of this exhibit and the further ad
ditions he will in the future make
to it. In getting together this
splendid display of character ores it
has been fraught with much time
and labor and required more than
the ordinary amount of pluck to
pack those big chunks of ore over
the rugued hills and up out of the
deep ravines, but t'tus far it has
been with him a labor of love with
out remuneration; the reward will
come later on, When this ex
hibit is in its new home it will be
well worth going miles to inspect it.
and iu the years to come thousands
of men who will interest themselves
in Bohemia will surely have a look
nt tin's big display of character rock
of that district. John has besides
this exhibit a fine garden, wherein
he has raised the past season, an
nbundaiice of "truck." He has
.supplied a good inrtity, of his miner
friends with delicacies from lils
, Bardeii io.iiu.d sold no, small
nmouutVtinhef,f!irm5ra along tlie
streams tlcif the foothills t Jlcjhai
nearly tw ton of fine cabbage, a
ton and over -of carrots and some
25 bushel of potatoes this .season'.
On Thursday evening Inst sev
eral friends of II C. Mndsen. the
jeweler, were invited to partake of
n feast at the ptivatc boarding
'house or Mrs,' Patterson on
Fourth street, in honor of 'his
fifty-eight birthday. The guests
Hat down M 6:30 and iof an hour
enjoyed the good edible things set
before them, which were enhanced
ns an aid to digestion by flowing
bumpers of rich Zimfandel wine.
.A souvenir of the occasion in the
form ofa handsome gold-mounted
fountain pen was given to the host
of the evening by his guests in a
neat little' presentation speech by
Mr. Arthur Young. The evening
wns pleasantly passed mid music,
song and merry jest, and the con
sensus of the wishes of those
' present was that the coming years
will deal as lightly with Mr. Mad
sen as iu the past and that liis re
curring birthdays will be as full of
pleasure as the one just past.
Bought Anothur 'Claim.
Louis Hartley was in town this
week from Bohemia. He and
friends have have secured owner
ship to the claim known as the
Hole in the Ground, adjoining the
six fine properties they now own.
This acquisition will round out
their holdings on Hohemia creek.
The parties mostly interested in
this groupeof claims arc business
men of Corvallis. Trails have been
built, cabins constructed and every
thing has been and will be put in
shape for energetic and continuous
,.,nri- when snrinc opens. This
groupe of mines ndjoins the groupe
recently sold and transferred to P.
J.Jennings by Messrs. Hartley and
Hughes. This new transfer shows
-that properties in that locality are
on the move, and with new blood
'and money that section will before
long come well to the front.,

Supeiinlciident Johnson of the
I.eKoy' Mining Company came
down fioin Jlohemiu Huh week, he
reports the work of packing iu
winter supplies, election of a store
house, blacksmith shop and shaft
house on the company's property
fully completed, nnd an efficient
crew of meii now steadily at work
sinking on the ore chute. The
ledge is widening and showing up
richer ore as the work goes (low 11.
The company has authorized to
purchase hoisting machinery and
an air fan which will be shipped
into the mines and made available
at the earliest moment. The com
pany is now having a large relief
map constructed by A. I). Whittier
which, when completed will be an
open book for all who desire or ex
pect to interest themselves in the
great possibilities of Hohemia. This
map will be on exhibition nt the
company's headquarters and the
general public is extended a carte
blanch to vliw it.
Tint Mummy Spkctaclh.
On Saturday last was exhibited
here a mummified Indian giantess,
said to havu been taken from a
civcru iu the Big Horn mountains
of Wyoming in the year 1897, and
discovered by a couple of hunters
who, were seeking refuge from a
fierce blizzard at the time He
this as it may whether natural or
artificial the mummies have gone
the rounds, have been looked at
by thousands of people, and by
many believed true to life. It is pos
sible to make artificially these crea
tures of a prehistoric age. This may
ormay not beof nature's origin, but
if not it is certainly a mighty good
imitation. At all events it answers
the purpose and is an object lesson
iu mummification that for the
small price of 10 cents much can be
learned by the young, nnd some of
the older heads might get a pointer

the Hohemia hills this week to
tarry for n short tiuie within the
charmed circle.of jhc, yalley con
tingent. A' quantity of talc pre

iug a raised map of Hohemia dis
trict for the Lp Roy Milling Com
pany some 3x4 fer.t, which will
give the. visitors, to the Lc Roy
office a better general view otthc
'topography of tlut rich mineral
zone. Mr. Whittier has developed
other maps of this wonderful min
eral district which are now on ex
hibition iu the cast, but none of
them have been more accurate and
(rue to detail iu the full picturesquc
n ess of topographical line than the
one now to be seen at the head
office of the Le Roy Company.
Tint Nrtw Postoi'ficu.
The new postoffice building ad
jacent to the Cochran furniture
store is now completed and Post
master Howard will move the office
into the new quarters next Satur
day night. He requests the Nug
get to say that Sunday morning the
patrons of the office will receive
their mail at the new building.
And while he does not expect to
have every detail looked alter
properly at that time, he asks the
kind indulgence of the patrons for
a few days, hoping by that time to
have everything in good shape,
feeling, assured thct the public will
appreciated the new surroundings.
Tint Surveyors,
The surveyors in the field for the
Cottage Grove and Bohemia rail
road are doing good work at the
front. They are now above the
red bridge on the Frank Brass
rreek. The force has been in
creased to contend with the heavy,
timber they are now going through.
They are now running preliminary
