Itell. The capital slock of the company

Dio Siunptrr Lumber company, as
known In the past, has been n private en
trrprise, conducted by J. It. Stoddard, one
of the present Incorporators, and has been
one of the most successful mills In east
It Is supposed the Intention of the new
company in putting In more money Is to
enlarge and otherwise advance the Inter
ests of the business, preparatory to a
heavy run during the cmiiIiik year'.
It has been Unown for months past that
Seymour II. Hell has been buying timber

uud not (or speculation.
MAMMOTH'S FIRST GOLD BRICK
Managfr McCallum Exhibited It Here
Manager II. S. McCallum very proud
ly exhibited the first gold brlcl turned out
from the Mammoth mine last weel. The
production was not one of the usual
sle generally carried to market, but .1
miniature one, weighing fioo in value,
that can be carried as a pocket piece.
This little fellow, however, will soon be
melted up again and run into large moulds
wilh mom liiillliin, which will represent
thousands instead of hundreds.
Mr. McCallum reports the Mammoth
mill as working like a watch movement,
which fact Is not only gratifying to the
company, but a credit and source of satis
faction to both its manufacturers, the
Joshua I Irmly Machine works, of San 1
I'r.tnilscn, and to Millwright Mcl.alu,
who dialled the plans and put the ma
ihinrry In place hi the buildings, which he
I he iMammoth company Is certainly a
(ordinate one, from the fact tint It
can start lis mill running on a million
dollar body of ore; with everything paid
tor and money In the bank besides.
I he liald Mountain mill will start up
about l;ebiuary 1, under the same con
ditions, so far as having everything paid

returned fiom Denver, where final pay
ments weie made on the property.
