AT EDEN PRAIRIE.
Col. R. II. Rosa, Steve Gallier, W.
E. Crane nnd Lloyd Rosa returned
Sundny from a few days camping
trip in the Billings and Eden Prairie
Country on the South Fork of the Co
quillo river. They brought back with
them samples of the coal known as
Eden Prairie coal. It is if the very
best grade of bituminous coal and is a
fine cooking coal and some of it is
good blacksmith coal.
There have been a number of
shafts sunk in tho coal district at
Eden Prairie and there nro indica
tions of millions of tons of the very
best grade of coal. The only draw
back to this great coal field is the lack
of transportation, as there is not even
a wagon road within ten miles of it.
However, wagon roads would not be
sufficient to handle tho output of coal
that could be taken from these fields.
It would need a railroad, and tho pro
position to build a road from Ban
don to Grants Pass through this sec
tion is receiving tho nttention of largo
eastern capitalists. Tho shipping of
this coal alone, it is said, would pay
big dividends on tho rnilroad for many
years to come.

LUCILLE LOVE. THE GIRL OF
MYSTERY, AT THE GRAND
Tho tenth installment of "Lucile
Lovo" will be' shown at 'the Grand
theatre tomorrow night. The story,
wich grows more interesting and ex
citing with each number, runs like
When Lucille ngain finds herself in
tho hands of Hugo Loubcquo all the
spirit of fight is temporarily taken
out of hor. She is overpowered and
crushed down by hor utter helpless
ness in the hands of the unscrupu
lous spy. Consequently she allows
herself to bo led to another of Lou
bequo's stronghilds. To make' easy
his plans for removing tho girl to his
Mexican estate, Loubcquo orders hoi
drugged. Realizing the usclessncsr
of combating him, Lucille agrees to
drink a portion of drugged wine, pro
viding that a lady attends her dur
ing tho trip to Mexico. Louboque
agrees to this, and she swallows 5
powerful sleeping potion. Thompson
Loubeque's rights hand man, knows
that Lucille has the costly ruby neck
lace she found in the sunken city, and
as soon as tho drug takes effect he
plans to take the jewels from her. He
attacks hor, howevor, before tho drug
has completely done its work. She
struggles with the thief and is res
5ued from the situation by Loubcquo
Lucille is now ovorcomo by a deep
unaturnl sleep. Friends are at hanc
but they come too lute, as Lucille can
not combine with them against th
spy. Detectives ngain localo Loubo
que. A battle ensues, and the detcc
tjves are again defeated by tho cun
ning spy, who prepares for overy e
mergency When Lucille nwakcm
from tho effects of the -drugs she
finds herself on Loubeques estate ir
Mexico. She ha3 the liberty of 1
large hacienda, but is forbidden tc
go outside it3 walls; indeed, she can
not go out side, as every avenue of
escape is guarded by armed men
Considering that Lucille is now safe
ly out of his way, Hugo Loubcquo re
turns to San Francisco to search hit
houso for the fateful papers whicl
Lucille hid there. Howbeit, coinci
dence and chance play a part in the
affairs of men which tho most sagac
ious cannot foretell. After Loubequc
departs a Mexican bandit venture
into tho hacienda in a spirit ofmis
chief and thus Lucille finds a fricnt
in her dire need.. Thompson agaii
plans to steal the ruby necklace fron
Lucille, and to forward his design:
ho saws tho iron bars of Lucille's win
dow with tho purposo of entoring hoi
room that night nnd stealing the jow
el. His trivial act becumos a meant
of succor to Lucille. When Thomp
on enters her room and attacks hoi
that night, the bandit is called to tin
scene by her cries. He shoots Thorn
pson and with his help Lucille escape,
from her prison hoube and from the
hacienda. Even while she is escaping
a new element of mystery enters intc
tho story. The guards stand upon the
hacienda walls firing at Lucille anc
her escort, when a veiled woman ar
rives and directs operations against
the fugitives. When thoy havo arriv
ed almost at a point of safety, Lu
