"R.oarin Gimlet" Again.
N.-s of 'lie discovery of a rich vein of
gold in Jackson coun'y was brought to
I'orllmd yceienlay by Captain C F.
Oavi'iiworth, a mining man of Gold
Hill. L-t than a month ago the Roar-j
ing Gimlet mine, located near Gold Hill,
was ;!'! to an Eastern man named
Mtn.lnhall for I-W00. Some men
tbou.ht that Mendeiihall got the worst
of the bargain, but after two week's
work on the claim lie struck a fissure
vein, which with one msu panning, bas
yielded (400 a day. The tailings have
been sold to the owner of a stamp mill
near Gold Hill, who says be bas derived
satisfaclory profit from bis invest
Captain Leven worth, who bas bad
experience In the mines ol uregon,
Washington and Idaho for tne past 20
or 30 years, says that Mendenhall's dis
covery was startling, even to Jackson
County. The Roaring Gimlet bad been
considered a good claim until it was sold
a couple ol times, and then mining men
considered it a sort of "pocket." A
month ago the then owners thought
they had worked out the claim, and
they readily slid it to Mr. Mendenball
for $1000. No one knew anything about
Mondenhall except that be came from
the East, but as he had the tain, the
transaction was easily completed. For
a week or two Mendenball did nothing
but prospect. His efforts were re
warded, for he had run only four feet
down when he struck the pay chute.
Since then," said Captain Leven-
worth, the mine has been panning
(400 a day and there has been only one
man working. In one day this man
cleaned up eight pans, and the tola!
value has been placed at 1 1000 The
tailings were bought and milled by Mr.
Cowgill, who has a stamp mill near
Gold Hill, and from what I bear the
results have been very satisfactory to
"I have learned that Mr. Mendenball
has so far taken out more than enough
t pay (or the mine, and I have beard
fiat he line taken out more than $20,
000 in the lint 10 days. My information
about (lie great output was received to
day from Gold Hill, and the gentleman
who gave it to me is in a position to
furnish such figures. Leaving the 10
lay yield out of the question. I can say
from my own personal knowledge that
Mr. Mendenball is panning gold right
along, and his surcesss shows what s
little energy and money will accomplish
in making a basis for a fortune.

They have been following the vein for

A minor may follow a lode down under
