Lecture ou Cuba
Prof. Leavltt is thinking of giving
a lecture on the Cuban question, some
time in the near future. The Cuban
question right now is one of great im
poitance, owing to the recent upris

Prof. Leav itt served in the United

American war, and conditions in Cu

made it a study and is capable of deal
ing intelligently with the subject. It
is hoped that he can be prevailed up
on to deliver a lecture, on this subject.

Marks, a thorough ndning man of

company, which is to operate some
very rich mines in the Windy Hollow
District Mr. Marks understands
mining thoroughly and haa considera

there is a future for the Windy Hollow
This new company will -ncorporate
about twenty or twenty-five claims,
including Bob Smiths, Biebera' and
others. Some of the claims lie along
side of the famous Jumbo claim. Mr.
Marks informes us that he tried to bny
the Jumbo, but thinks by spending
some money on some of the claims
they hae they will have as good a
mine as the Jumbo. . He told us that
he offered 940,000 for the Jumbo, but
the owners wanted 9600,000.
Mr. Marks is confident that he will
succeed in the venture, as he has the
money to spend in finding the right

the ground is rich and extensive
