The Albany Herald recently said
that three car loads of brick had leen

of the paper mill which is to be built

built next year. The fact Is the frame
is up and rests on a foundation perhaps
equal to anything in the State.

Once more I have had the pleasure of
mingling with your citizens and re
ceiving that heartfelt hospitality that
fairly rivets the bonds of friendship.
Many of the old- time ft tends, with the
same genial smile, the hearty hand
clasp, the warm words of welcome,
greet one on evry hand. Some I used
to know are gone, some here, some
there, across our broad domain, and
some are In the silent city of the dead
forevermore at rest.
Time, ever ceaseless In Its flight,
leaves changes with us all. The happy
schoo!-gtrl of a few short years ago Is
happy wife and mother now, and
many like myself, who once were
young like they, have ceased to pluck
the silvery hair from beard and trow,

there Is no new thing under the auu."
The growth of Lebanon Is phenom
enal, and one cannot be Indifferent to
the radical changes of the past few
months. The comfortable cottages
that are being constructed, the new
sidewalks and crosswi.lks, the beautiful
new school bouse, the extensive and
expensive paper mill now under course

that are being platted and added to
your beautiful city, speak eloquently

a matter of justice to the citizen and

should lie afforded in case of a confla

nucleus around which gather the hab

life, so It should and does receive the
best protection. But while this Is

Considerable interest is centred just
now in a trail from the wagon road
above Sweet Home to the Quartzville
mines on the Santiam. There was at
one time a trail over this route, but
having been travelled but little of late
years, fallen timber and a rank under
growth have blocked the way to some
extent. The citizeus of Sweet Home
and vicinity show a willingness to co
operate with Interested parties at this
and other points aleng the route and
re-open the way. The mines are dis
tant from Lebanon about fifty miles,
one-half of which distance is already
traversed by a good wagon rond. This
seems to be the most practicable route
to the mines, and a good road up the
South Santiam would shorten the dis
tance and tend to divert the travel
from the northern route and would
benefit the farmer, the miner and the
merchant. We hope our people will
consider it to their interest to second
any endeavor to shorten transportation
and benefit all classes alike.

THE tH-'AKTivilXE MIKES.
.A few hours' ride on the O. P. R. R.
trp the North Fork of , the Santiam
brought us to GukBvilletle nearest
accessible point to the wines." After a
good night's rest and a hearty break
fast with Landlord Gutes, the question
to be decided was whether we would
walk the long trail of twenty miles up
and down the steep mountain, or trunt
our corporeal treasure to the sierra-Ilka
back of one of the : descendants of Ba
laam's loquacious companion. A hasty
inspection of this forbidding-looking
beast caused us to decide to tramp it.
Like the boy that hud had his fill of
plum pudding, we thought we would
never more be hungry. So on we
started without providing for the pos
s'ble needs of the Inner man. Miles
of steep hills were niunfully overcome
when finally the aforesaid Inner man
became the most important and self
asserting part of two lone tramps. But
a few raw potatoes, found at a deserted
camp, and some frost-bitten huckle
berries, gathered along the roadside,
were all that we had to satisfy the
pangs of hunger. Finally, when we
tiegau to think that our stomachs ex
tended from the crown of our bends to
the 'soles of our feet, we reached the
friendly shelter of a mining camp.
Where wholesome food and sweet sleep
restored us to our original vigor.
Quartzville is an old mining camp
where broken bits of mining 'ma
chinery mournfully suggested its for
mer activity. Further up the gulch,
the Albany company has erected a new
mill, built a stout tramway up the
mountain aide, run long. tunnels and
sunken deepshafts. An abundance of
rich rock has been brought to the sur
face, froui some of which has been
milled a brick of gold of the value of
$180. Much anxiety preceded the first
day's crushing, and great, satisfaction
,illo.wed tbfi'r encouraging yield, i The
miners are-jubilant, and they have
good cause for their jubilee, for the
result of tbelr lniatory labors proves
tbat great wealth awaits them.. Theii
mining ' stock baa been withdrawn
from the market, and they intend to
hold lo the last share, so confident are
they of the wealth of the mines. This
company owns but a small part of the
mines In this district. Other compa
nies and individual miners have even
richer ledges, which will soon be de
veloped. Next spring the district will
be full of miners aud mining machin
ery, and the old activity of Quartzvil'e
will be revived. It is not Improbable
that In the spring a railroad will go up
the Santiam divide to thene mines,
and Lebanon should secure Its western
terminus. These mines have been rid
iculed for many years, but recent re
sults prove beyond doubt the wealth
of gold that will soou be taken from
these rugged hillsides. O. B.
