Tho following statement lias been
issued by the Galico Rousolmated
Mines Co. iu T.iew of their recent ac
quirement of 700 acrei of additional
grouud :
Tho acquisition of 100 acres of valu
able adjacent placer miuiiijt ground
has been iu couteuiplatiou for some
time, aud iu anticipation of the sua-
cess of tho gravol levators now being
tested by tho coiupauy, purchased
outright all tho available ground from
tho mouth ol Oalice Creek down
Uogue River for a distauoo of three-
qunrters of a mile.
Guoiblerg' Bar; ths greater lr'
which was owned by tho coniiiany,
has beeu a famous rendezvous for
busted prospectors iu summer time as
good wages could always ba made by
panning or with a rocker. Nearly
every winter Rogue river runs over
this bar for a week or two so that
permanent improvements In tho way
oneuiiiK it un have uever beeu
ill ndo.
We acuuirod this property before
the formation of Galico Consolidated,
aud while it was of well-known rich
uess. wo did not consider it feasible
to be opened by tho regular hydraulic
method as a bedrock race out to
Koenn river would not drain it
properly or afford sufficient dump,
and it was not until tho hydraulic
elevators wore perfected within the
past few years that it wus thought
practical to work thoso low river bars.
Now it is feasible under the pressuro
from our high ditches, which are bo
iug extended to this ground, to set
one giant piping directly op a steel
tube 15 to 80 inches iu diameter to
elevate this ground to a height of tiO
feet or more with a dump of tho samo
height into Rogue River and thus do
away with too adverse teature oi
drainage and dump. Hundreds of
affidavit as to the richness ;of the
grouud are available, and wo have
personally and thoroughly prospoet
the ground before purchase, and Mr.
Cousiu has seen tho ground opened
up a number of times and bus tested
it during the past 11 years with the
view ot ultimately working it by
this process. It was decided to put
machinery on this bar during (In
coming summer, aud in view ii in
creased valuatiou of similar adjacent
property, resulting from successful
operations on our part, it was deemed
advisablo to purchase all available
territory that could bo covered by our
ditche.i before starting active work
A largo crew of men will bo put to
work immediately extending the
ditches, aud it is possible to have one
or two uleators in operation cm tl
new ground iu fiO days. Numerous
improvements and enlargement will
bo made to our eutiro equipment and
it is proposed to bring tho waters
from both forks of Galico Creek and
the intervening gulchen to bear Uon
tho lower part of the creek and the
river bars.

Henry Wird Deecher to Ilia Son.
The- following letter from Ileury
Ward Deecher to his son ia authentic,
and should bo carefully pondered by
every young man :
My Dear Herbert : You aro now for
tho first timo fairly lnnuehod into
life for yourself. You go from your
father's houso and from all family
ouiiections to make your owu way iu
the world. It is a good timo to make
a new start, to enst out faults of
whoso evil you have had au experi
ence and to take 011 habits tho want of
which you have found to ho so damaging.
1. You must not get into debt.
Mako it a fundamental rule : No debt
cash or nothing.
3. Make few promises. Religious
ly observe oveu tho smullest promise,
A man who means to keep his prom
ises cannot afford to mako many.
II. He scrupulously careful iu all
statements. Accuracy und perfect
tiiinkness, no guesswork. Kither
nothing or accurate truth.
4. When working for others sink
yourself out ot sight; seek their in
terest. Mako yourself necessary to
thoso who employ you, by industry,
fidelity and scrupulous infergily.
Selfishness is fatal.
6, Hold yourself resoiisiblu for a
higher standard than anybody olso
exxcts of you. Demand more ot
yourself than nnyhody else expects of
you. Keep your personal standard
high. Never oxcuso yourself to your
self. Never pity yourself. Iio a hard
master to yourself; bo lenient to
everybody else.
. Concentrate your force 011 your
proper business; d,i not turn olT.
lie constant, steadfast, persevering.
7. Tho art of making one's fortune
Ih to spend nothing. In this Vonutry
any intelligent and industrious young
man may become rich if bo stops all
leaks and is not in a hurry. Do not
mako haste; bo patient.
H. Do not speculate or gamble.
You go to a land whero evoybody is
excited, nud strive to make money
suddenly, largely nud without work
ing for it. They biow soap-bubbles.
Steady, patient Industry is both the
surest and tho safest way. Greedi
ness and haste nru two devils which
destroy tliouasnds every year.
1). I beseech you to cornet one
fault severe speech of others. Never
speak evil of any man, no matter what
the facts may bo. Hasty fault Minting
and Severn speech of absent people is
nut honorable, is apt to bo unjust and
cruel, makes enemies to yourself, and
U wicked.
10 If by iulerglty, industry am
well earned success you des, rvi well
of your fellow citizens, they may iii
years to come ask you lo occept
honors. Do not seek their, do 111
n ee ivo them while vou are young
wait; hut when you are established
you may make your father s name
known Willi honor in haMs of legisla
Lastly, do wit forget your af tie r
and your mother s Uod. ltecanse you
will bo largely dvprived of church
privileges, you need all the m ive to
keep your In art before Uod. Hut do
not despise small churc hes aud hum
ble preachers. "Mind not high
thing", but condescend to men of low
estate." Head often the Proverbs,
the precepts hiiiI duties enjoined iu
the New Testament. May your
father's Ueid go with you aud protect
you !

to nominate a uo-llcens ruuuiopal
A week bo fore tho elooton a man
who was a most excellent workman
and when sober, an agreeable man,
died with dollruro tremens la one of
the saloons. Tho man had no rela
tives iu the town. A brother came
from a dlstanco to bury him, and the
preacher was asked to conduct a
funeral service In the saloon.
The room was crowded with friends
an I enemies of the saloon. The
preacher stood at the head of the
cofllu, and tho saloon-keeper at the
foot. After the opening services the
preacher sain: "Here lies before us
a victim of strong drink, killod ;by
somebody. Si 1100 he died I have beard
It said that ho killed himself a oaso
of suicide by drink. This is true, but
he is not alone to blame for his death.
I have heard it said that the saloon
keeper killed him. This, also is true.
Tho man who sold him liquor, de
manded by au appotito that made him
a slave, must bo held morally re
sensible for his death. But the
saloon keeper is not alone responsible.
"I hava heard it said that our vit
iligo board is responsible for this case
of murder. This also is true. Had
there been no saloons in our town,
this man would bavo been living yot.
Hut these village officers are only
representatives. They have done Jost
what they were elected to do. Tha
final responsibility rests upon the
voters of our villago, who are guilty,
through their franchise, of the mur
der of this man. "
He then proceeded to discuss the
responsibility of the voter with
tremendous effect. The saloon keeper
closed out his murderous business,
and ho and several of his friends
voted tho no-license ticket, which
won in the election. Hince then no
saloon has boon licensed in that til
lage, and before tho preacher left he
had tho pleasure of votlug for thst
ox-saloou keeper to fill the ofiloe of
villago trustee. J. G. Evans, D. D.
