News of one of the richest, if not
the very richest, gold strikes trer
made on the ooatt, has jnst been re
ceived by M. Marks, formerly of
Grants. Paes, manager of the Lake-
view Mining & Milling company
In a tonnel on the J umbo claim a
body of ore has been opened that is
literally peppered with gold. Tbe
strike is on the main ledge, 150 feet
north of tbe original workings from
which Loftos t Brothers made the
strike that first caused the rush to
The recent strike is said to be of a
better character in that it occurs at
dopth and directly on the main lode.
Samples of ore sent oat prove tbe
1 1 ike to be a fabnlons one. Gold is
visible inll parts of the qnartz, and
the poorest of it rnns hundreds of
dollars to the ton.
While the uncovering of the mar
velous pay streak adds to the elation
of the mine owners of the district,
they bare their high estimation of the
worth of Windy Hollow on the huge
dimensions of the ledges and the
stable character of the veins. Secre
tary F. H. Briggs of the Lakeview
company, who was also a resident of
UrantB P6S believes the great gold
rush of next Summer will be to
Windy Hollow and that section of
"Everything that has been found
there is proving big," said Mr.
Brings. "Not a single striuger vein
has been uncovered. There are no
pockets, no blanket ledges; every
thing is broad, deep and permanent
with good values all the way
through. This is what attracts the
real mining man, aud that is why I
am confident we will have a crowd

Auctions for All.
A large crowd attended the auction
Fule at Independence lat month on
the first "auction dBy." It was
recently decided to fet aside one day
of each month to hold these auction
sales, at which time anyone is at
liberty to bring any property or any
description that he has for ale to the
highet bidder, th day to be known
as "anetion day." These sales are
rndoctel in neighboring towns and
have provfcd very helpful, particularly
to the farmer.
At this sale, although it was the
first huld, there was a large crowd
and among the property to change
hands were six horses, three cows,
two wagons, plows, narrows, i rising
implements of every description, etc.

One of the most peculiar of the
placer mines of Josephine county is
that of Archie Tvoer, near flolland.
The ground lies bisrh npon the divide
betwien Sucker creek aud Althoufe,
nearly on the summitt. The only
available water for working comes

the water supply beiug too small to
justify a hydraulio equipment.
Worked under these restrictive
conditions the mine is oredited with
an output that would compare favor
ably with many plaoers of far greater
pretensions and equipment. The
gold seoured is very pnra but seoms
to ooour in two varieties or grades.
One is a very heavy, smooth channel
gold while the other is quar'i jld.
Some of the gold is yellow and bright
in color and some is black or rusty.
Tbe ground is shallow, ranging from
two to six feet in depth. Unlike
most plaoers the bank is nearlv all
dirt, the boulders being exceedingly
tew aud small.
The gold ooours in nueeets aud is
so uniformly coarse that pieces of
less than f 1 iu weight are classified
by Mr. Tycer as "fine cold" and he
ohafes impatiently at the labor re-
q uired to separate sueh pieces from
the black sand and other heavv resi
due. The mine lies in a district of

scale at a profit.
