Ine machine is tbe only one of Its

To sew on a pair of soles by thepld

Carat" as Applied te DUanb.
Although the term "carat" la applied
to diamonds as well as to gold. It does
-not mean tbe same thing. Used with
regard to the metal It expresses quality
or fineness, 24 carat being pure goA
and 22 carat equal to coined gold. But
applied to the diamond carat means ac
tual weight and by this measure llBM
carata are equal to an ounce trey. The
value of a diamond la not merely to

EXPERT'S REPORT 01V
THE GOLD RUN MINE
A repoit was received Wednesday
by H. 11. Cox from J. B. Smith, min

taken from tbe Oold Kuu mine. The
report is so favorable that the stock
bas increased to 25 cents a share, it is
as follows :

The property of the Cold Hun Min

of Portland ; on tbe headwaters of
the big Wasbougal river. Tbe Hold
Hun mine is easily traoed on tbe sur
face for a distance of at least a mile.
and Is the mother lode of that miner
al belt. It is a true fissure vein of
enormous size, having a oontaot be
tween granite and porphyry. The
ledge bas a pitch of from ten to II f
toen degrees and tbe trend Is from
northwest to southeast. The ledue
matter is a combination of metals.
namnly : Copper, lead, gold and sil
ver, ine sbatt wbere the wotk la be
ing done Is hitihly mineralized and the
ore Is pitobiug toward the hanging
wall. 1 am sure a large body ot ore
will be encountered on the 100 font
level with greatly increased values.
The company bas 300 acres of
ground. Several veins bave been un
covered, .all of wbloh show good
values; timber and water power iu
abundance. In fact, 1 find the tim
ber and water of great valuo to the
oompany. ! Tbe present power with a
little improvement of which 1 have
made known, will liirnlsh ample
power for a ten stamp mill and a rock
oiusber. besides doing tbo present
work which it ia doing of hoisting the
ore and running the pumps.
And in conclusion 1 will say that

ever seen in my 25 years of actual ex
perience in mining.

Dear Sir : In regard to tbe Cold

bave tried to make a conservative and
correct report according to tbe bent
data attainable at the time of making
tbe examination. There are some in
stances wbere facts oould not be ob
tained until a larger amount of devel

Instance the size and character of the

Under proper management and the
adoption of improved methods of

You are fortunate in having such
a splendid water power. No limit to
tbe horse power. Timber iu great
abundance tor mining purposes which
will last for ages.
1 would advise you as a frieud, to
concentrate all your efforts ou the
Gold Hun vein and sink a distance if
100 teet as soon as possible and start
tbe mill on that property first From
the rcHiilts obtained from tbe surface

ANNIVERSARY OF HOOD
RIVER'S FIRST CITIZEN
Today is the thirtieth anniveiaary
of the arrival of .Mr. and Mrs. K. L.
Smith in Hood Hlver. Just previous
to his coming here Mr. Smith was
living at Olympia on the Sound, where
he bad a Hue residence. The climate
there was unlavorablu to his health,
and ho was advised by physioians to
leave. In looking uround for a more
healthy climate be decided to oome
to Hood Hiver, wbere he has since
remained and where it bus evidently
argeed with him, for we know of no
more vigorous citi.ou iu tbe com
munity, both mentaliy aud physi
cally, than Mr. Smith.
As a government surveyor, Mr.
Smith bad associated witb him at that
time (ieo. P. Crowell, and is probably
as familiar witb the topography of
western Oregon and the state in gen
eral as any man iu it and as well
known, lie has aeon many changes
in bis long residence here and lias
probably beeu more instrumental iu
making the fume of Hood Hiver
known to the outsido world than any
of its citizens. He has brought bouor
to himself and bis borne town and the
best wishes of his friends go with
him that he may live to see another
thirtieth anniversary in the etute of
