Ilohcmia Mining District is
heavily indebted to F.J. Hard for
Ills efforts In placing the
district ' before the mining
world. While he is at the head of
several of the most promising
properties in the district, such as
the Oregon & Colorado Mining nnd
Milling Co. and the Vesuvius, still
he shows no partiality. In his
many writcups that have apiearcd
from time to time in such papers as
the Mining Record and the N. U-
Jotirual for Investors, he lias spared
no pains to cover the entire dis
trict and give credit where credit is
due. The Nugget extends thanks
to Mr. Hard, in behalf of the mine
owners of this district for his very
l'rof. Kendall was in this week
after scndiug the entire winter on
his Hcveral properties in liohemia.
He owns the Delta group of three
claims, the Delta, Copper Stain nnd
Alpha, near the Judson Rock Min
ing Co's property, also three other
more for the property thou It after
wares produc.es in a single mouth,
yet In doing this he should con
sider himself fortunate for there
past six months on his properties,
and on the claim near Ilcuson he
has run a 30-foot drift, and is in
fairly good rock.

Ranchers who wish to clear up a

they will nibble every little shoot
