Professor Chester Robbius, who was
out in the hills yesterday, encountered
several deer, a band of elk and a
lonesome bruin. The law's protection
Mived the deer and elk from slaughter,
but the poor bear, which by the way was
not poor at all, but fat and sleek, had to
suffer for the balance of animal creation
and received a solid shot amldship. Prof.
Robbins failed to ban him, but he is confi
dent the bear received a severe shock to
his nervous system. T. R. Needham
came up from his North Fork mine Fri
day and left Monday for Meadow creek in
company with Wynn Stewart and Homer
H.Davis on a fishing expedition. It is
said the trout there are so numerous and
voracious that it is really dangerous for a
fisherman to appear on the banks of the
stream without adequate means of defense.
Rut the boys are well prepared to meet all
emergencies arid wi probably return with
numerous fish-scalps hanging to their
girdles and several exciting stories about
the big ones that got away. Lawton
Rich Placers on Meadow Creek.
What is believed to be the richest and
most extensive placer strike made for a
number of years in this Immediate sec
tion is reported from Meadow creek, about
-twenty miles in a northwesterly direction
from Lawton. Messrs. Needham and
Clayton were directed to the property by
an old prospector, who stated that it had
been located a great many years ago, but
the party who did the location was now
long since dead and there was no valid
claimant to the ground. Thus far work
on the ground has shown best results.
The surface dirt and gravel was washed
off a yard square of bedrock by the or
dinary method of ground sluicing, and
nuggets and coarse gold to the value of
six or eight dollars were picked up by the
men. The owners of the new find think
they have a bonanza and will put on a
force of men at once to work the property
for all there Is in it. There is plenty of
water In adjacent streams to work the
ground either with sluices or giants.
Encouraging Reports From the Hills.
W. C. Calder and R. K. Casper have
returned from an extensive trip through
the mining districts to the west of Sump
ter. They repeat the story brought In by
every one who goes Into the hills on a
tour of Inspection, that of great activity in
mining, evidences of which are to be seen
on every hand. They say, too, that as
work progresses, as the shafts go down
and tunnels are driven In, many good
strikes are recorded; more in the past
thirty days than during all of the prev
ious time this season.
