C. H. DEMARAY, Druggist
This big "Wolf Creek Ranch." with
it 3000 acre of choice land is being
pat ia excellent condition and will,
we believe, eventually become thickly
ettled. Messrs. E. W. Knykendall and
Judge J. O. Booth, its owner are put
ting forth mach effort to bring this
a boat.
Everything ont thii way ia looking
good. Tti's g one of the best season
for the oattle men ever known here
about There is an abundance of oat
aide feed and consequently the cattle
are fat and in prima condition for the
market. The owners will not have tn
feed very much this year.
Much interest ia being taken ia the
mining industry In these parts. Many
prospectors are at work and a large
number of them are already delving
into the riches of mother earth on
Coyote Creek and others on Wolf
Creek. We predict that this season
will be a record breaker in the matter
of bringing the mines to a developiug
point in this entire region.
Many newcomers are wending their
way hither, in qnest of mines, land
and to look the country over. Among
others are some experienced Alaska
mining men who think that there is
a great fa tore in etc re for this sec
tion. Health is uncommonly good in this
neck of the woods. But for that
matter it ia that way all the year
round. The doctors can't count very
mnch npon getting patients from oar
section.
Our school is progressing nicely,
with Miss Bessie MoColm, who, by
the way, is making a fine ran for
that priie whioh is offered by The
Sugar Pine Store. Here's hoping
that she will win it. She is ex
tremely popular with onr people, aa
her splendid vote shows.
Thanksgiving was observed by one
and all. Many were the big dinners
and family reunions.
There is every indication tbat we
will bare much building and improve
ment, in the spring. In fact alieady
there ia talk along this Una.
Ruble Bros, are fatting everything
in readiness for operating' their fine
placer mines. J. C. Dysert and part
ner are also making like preparations.
The latter parties have the very
promising Lehman property.

The Thanksgiving season pasted off
very pleasautly in this neighborh ol.
One of the pleasantest affairs of the
day was when about 70 friends cf the
Rev. Hoxie invited him to enjoy a
; big Turkey dinner which they took to
his home and whioh was greatly en.
joyed by oue and alL
J. D. Graham expects to soon have
his new creamery in full operation
and he will improve the plant right
along, as the needs demand.
Chat. Hoxie is bosily engaged in
patting his shingle mill in operation
and he fully expects to have it run
ning in the coarse of the next 30
day.
, Friday, November 29. Professor
Jasper N. Miller clossd a very success
ful term of school in this district
Excellent reuitatlons, singing aud the
like, together with some One niosia by
Mr. Graham's phonograph, made it a
very delightful occasion. There have
been 84 pupils enrolled, from the pri
mary to the eighth grade and efficient
work has been done by the scholars,
who range in ages from 6 to 18 yours.
So well pleased were the parents that
the di rotors have engaged Prof. Miller
to teach another term. This is one of
the neatest and best school buildings
iu the valley. It is new and has many
modern conveniences. The building
has nice eqoipment.and good work ia
being done by Prof. Miller. "Old
Glory" floats from the building, thus
early inculcating in the minds of the
rising generation patriotic instincts
and a love for all that is good. The
people of this district feel that they
have been very fortanate in securing
the servioss of so able an instructor as
Prof. Miller and tbey are lending him
all the assistance in their power, by
co-operating with him.
Plana are on foot, looking to the

There is a subscriber to the Courier

Webb that ' the Courier Is read by his
family and then passed around to the
