with a capital stock of $HH),0in. The
claims that were pooled were selected
from all parts of the district, and are
considered representative clairn. It
U expected that this company will ef
fect what individuals have hitherto
been unable to accomplish a practical
test of the mineral wealth of the two
districts. Reports of a subsequent
meeting have not yet reached us, but
we are ussuretl that steps will lie taken
to develop these claims.
The Trinity Mill and Mining Co. of
Brownsville own three vnJu;.blee!nl:iis

Last Saturday avenlng a number of
invited friends attended a piirty given
in honoi of Mr. H. Y. Kirkpatriek be
fore hi departure for his r.ew place of
resilience at Seattle. It was called an
"apron party," which turned out to be
only a scheme of the young Indies to
get their aprons nicely hemmed by the
unsuss'ct"mg young men. But the
scheme worked surprisingly well the
gentlemen hemmed the aprons in short
order, and the l.idies were made ac
quainted with S'ime new methods
and drsigrs in ti e h; mining
line. The young men of Lebanon
deserve credit for the skill th-y
have acpiired in sewing. (By the
way, some of them sr. asxious
to have a "patching party," o as to
get even.) ilr. KoU-rt Montos:tii' was
awardeti an appropriate prixe for iloing
the nt-Atest job of hemming; nntl a
prize was alo given t the one doing
the worst job. This prize was awarded
to a timid young man who couldn't
se-w worth a cent under the circum
stances. Out of resjs-ct to his feelings
we forbear giving his name.
But a uits-t disii-ult task was given
the gentlemen when they were called
upon to decide by hallet as to who was
the prettiest young lad v present. At
first the votes were very scattering
couldn t agree at all, hut they finally
compromised and made a selection.
We will not give her name, as several
of the defeated candidates are kicking
vigorously against the decision. The
ludii s had a similar dilhcult undertak

young man present; but thev finally
agreed on our friend Kirkpatriek. The
defeated candidates in this instance
mle no objection to the decision.

There lies on our table, aud also on
every other table in Ibis country, an
annual, the popularity of w hich is a
standing menace to the small country
newspajH-r. A glance at Its contents
will reveal the secret of Its popularity.
It Is nothing ls than an encyclope

been translated. We, onrsrlves, have
seen translations In the language of
"Bristol," "Jayne," "Hood" and
"Aver," with some choice selections
in the classic language of Bill Nye.

In work's of merit, Is supplied w ith a
Iwautiful frontispiece an anatomical
plate, which doubtless suggested to
Gray the preparation of that little
book of his that Is so universally read
by doctors. Surrounding this picture
are suie valuable hints to the medical
profession; written In hieroglyphics
and of little value to any hut the initi
ated. We have no doubt that your
curiosity has excited desire to read
more aiul we haw not yt turned the
first page of this wonderful volume.
Very early in ths body of the work we
find a circular picture called the
.odiac, enclosing some rare specimen
of natural history. This picture re-semble-s
in Its outlines the modern
corral anil was a device used anciently
by Texas cowboys lor capturing billy
goats for secret societies. In this
museum of antiquity called the zodiac,
may also be seen the Siamese twins,
who were called gemini by the Ro
mans, some Coluiubia river salmon, a
lolister from Yaqulna lay aud a fine
sjtechiien of Latinixod Itcef called
Ta-irus. This book Is likewise invalu
able to the tailoring classes Inasmuch
as it tells them when the sun sets and
is as effectual in quelling strikes as a
regiment of militia you seldom hear
the mechanic strike after the sun takif
his seat. It also tells when the sun
rises, a fact which very few people
care to know. Coder t he head of tes
timonials (one of the very Interesting
chapters of the book) we "get the news
of recovered friends and relatives and
for another twelve months our solici
tude for suffering humanity is relieved
and we involuntarily exclaim. "Lone
live the author."
The above are some of the reasons
why js-ople read the almauac in pref
erence to the newspaper. W e have
but one objection to raise to this com
pendium of know lodge, the-so books
are printed in the east. We do most
heartily protest agai list the in) Dona
tion by eastern weatl-r bureaus jf all

undertakes to manufacture n western
weather reirt in an eastern climate,
twelve months in advance ha entered
upon a most perilous course; a course
that must inevitably break down
