Skating Fond Lighted With Natural Gas.
I'alouse, Washington, boasts of the
only skating pond in the state that Is
lighted by natural gas. Since the discov
ery by H-irl Rnbards ol gas under the Ice,
when the discoverer was badly burned by
gas, it Is not uncommon for the skater to
priik a hole in the ice and by applying a
match produce a llame that frequently
reaches six feet in height and gives a
blight light. A number ol thtse experi
ments being made in quick succession
gives the pond a fairly good light. I. K.
McCorii.uk, cashier of the Security State
bank, hid his mustaihe and eyebrows
singed while watching one of these ex
periments. Mr. McCornacU is six feet
tall and the 11 lines shot up higher than
his he id. I'alouse Is greatly excited over
Present Nd in Three Pert of Ore.
I hr report was brought down from
i,)u irtlmrg Monday by a gentleman who
had been In the Present Need mine, that
there was then over three feet of high
grade ore ill thr face of the drill, and that
the vein was lontiuulng to increase In
width and Hie ore in value. Phis is a
gain ol nearly two feet since our report
two weeks ago. Superintendent Reee
has good reason to wear a bland smile,
but no excuse for giving the Miner man
the "nothing new" stand off when asked
for news a day or two before. Prairie

T COMPANYowns three fullclaims
and water right on big Limber
Creek, in the Cable Cove district.
The ledge has been stripped for
two hundred feet from the water
course and traced by means of
open cuts to the summit of the
mountain, jooofeet, or the length
of two claims.
The company is capitalized at 1,000,
000, one-quarter of which is treasury
So far as prospected by these surface
workings the ledge has an average width
of seven feet. The ore is an iron pyrites
carrying gold, (its principal value), some
silver and a small per cent of lead and
copper. Thirty or forty assays of this
surface ore have been made, from sam
ples taken across the vein, and the low
est returns were 14.61. the highest
49.62, averaging better than 20.
Across the creek, on the Gipsy Queen
group, where extensive development
work is being done on the same ledge,
by a Boston company, at a depth of 60
feet, samples from across the face of the
tunnel assayed $64.92. These. workings
demonstrate that the per centage of lead
increases with depth, as well as the gold
values, making the ore easy to treat.
The Gipsy KingGold Mines Company
will begin at an early day to drive a tun
nel, which will cut the vein at a distance
from its mouth of from io to 60 feet and
at a depth of about 15 teet. When the
tunnel reaches the ledge, it will turn and
drift from that point in ore that will
doubtless pay to ship.
For the purpose of raising funds with
which to prosecute this work, the first
stock offered for sale has been placed
upon the market. Fifty thousand shares
are now offered at FIVECENTS.no more
nor no less. When this is disposed of
the price will be raised. Every share of
stock, except that placed in the treasury,
is pooled for one year from January 1,
1901, so that this statement can be relied
upon as strictly true, The market will
never be Hooded with Gipsy King stock.
Orders for blocks of less than ;oo shares
are not solicited.
All money should be sent to the treas
urer of the cbmpanv, J. H. Robbins, who
is president of the First Bank of Sumpter.
