One of the mot interesting places
to visit and at the same time enjoy
a refreshing walk on a pleasant ilaj
is to view the life, activity and di
versified mechanism of the South
ern Pacific tie plant at Latham.
about one and n half miles south of
town. To one who has not been
there it is indeed a novtlty and a
vast dual of information can he
gained by a look over this great
1 laut. The two immense remits
ae wonders to look at and they ate
kept full of ties night ami day. The
lies are placed on low trin ks fol
lowing each other and are run into
the great cylindrical retorts by the
aid of n wire cable, About four
hours are tcquircd lo thorough')1
Haturate them with the preserving
preparation and this is repeated
with some six or seven fresh oper
ations daily, each train of trucks
being taken from the retoits having
the cuied lies taken from them and
loaded into cars for shipment east.
At the lime of our visit one of the
cars being loaded, belonged lo the
Michigan Central and carried away
fiooof these preserved ties. Superin
tendent Cole, is at all times a very
busy man, hut he always manages
to find time to show visitors over
the plant and explain the workings
thereof, which is indeed of much
. intetcst to the uninilmted.

News froth the Star Consolidated
this week is very encouraging.
Superintendent Jtehue has just re
turned from the mine and says that
the new quarters are now all in
complete shape. The long cross
cut tunnel is under good headway.
Some fine quart, have been conic
upon and the indications are that
the first lead is close at hand, and
the surface showings indicate that
good results can now be looked for
at any time. Mr. llehiie is feeling
quite jubilant over the outlook.
Helena No. 2 has encountered
about eighteen inches of quart, that
assay well, and with every foot of
development the mine looks better,
demonstrating that depth will im
prove the future of the camp.
In the lower tunnel of Helena
No. 1 three feet of ore has been eu
counteted that assay up in the
huudicds, which is being steadily
developed with double shifts and
blocked out to await transportation.
The rich ore streak in the upper
tunnel still continues.
At tho Musick No. 6 is being
driven with good results and the
base ore is steadily gelling better,
proving beyond a doubt that the
future of Ilohemia will be all that
is hoped for it.
There is just now about three
feet of snow iu the camp but work
in all of the principal mines is
going right along and many pros
pects are being developed.
John Stonebeig has for a long
time contemplated making suudrx
improvements in the front of his
c imbiuatioii barber shop and notion
store, and realizing the deli ter.ite
uk thods and calculating mind ol the
average carpenter, decided thai the
only way for him to get his im
provements made and at the same
lime get somewhere near value for
his money, was to hire the work
done by the hour and pick out, if
possible, the coldest day of this
winter, so if the ctrpenters did not
warm to their work they could feel
the nipping sting of the frost king.
Well, John had the job done on
Tuesday, and it was bitter cold,
but those carpenters got down to
their, work with an energy that
was n joy to behold ami earned
their money with a will, which
proves that the barber's wisdom
was well conceived.

The presentation last week by
our local talent of "The Deacon,"
a neat little farce-comedy drama,
iu aid of the free rending room,
was a grand success in more ways
than one. Its rendition was appre
ciated and applauded by a large
audience. Each participant was
conspicuous for the study and foice
put into the part portrayed and the
financial outcome was most grati
fying, inasmuch as the proceeds,
after paying all the necessary ex
penses, netted the neat little sum
of $47 for the reading room, which
money was sufficient to pay off the
indebtedness of that worthy insti
tution, nmounting to 30, nnd left
a balance of $17 iu the hands of its
treasurer. Taken all mound a
great good has be.en accomplished
and an evening of delight gone on
record through the generous efforts
of the home talent company.

A. D. Whittier returned this
week from Blackbutte after com
pleting in talc a relief map of that
section for V. B. Dennis. The
relief map is 3x4 .feet, with a scale
of three-fourths of an inch to the
100 feet, and covers a radius of two
miles. This last achievement of
Mr. Whittier is fully equal to his
former productions in that line.
The map he made for the Le Roy
company of Bohemia has been
photographed, lithographed and
thousands of copies sent out over
the country with the fine pros
pectus gotten out by that company,
and cannot help but interest nnd
enlighten the thousands who nre
now seeking information with
reference to the great mineral
bodies of Bohemia.
