Jim McShane to the laving of the stone
and brick bv expert mechanic, as well
a the plastering, carpenter, painting
and other work, all of which shows the
mark of the master hand.

Views of Industrial Scenes
In Northern Lake
A number of views giving one an idea
of Silver Lake and vicinity have been
received by Hon. A. W. Orton from F.
M. Chrisman. There are two threshing
scenes besides several of grain fields,
which proves conclusively thst grain
is grown successfully in that section.
Views of the Pcblic School.. Odd
Mlows hall and Leader building are
also included, which shows the class of
buildings to be good and substantial.
One view, bearing the legend "S. A.
Lester s Girden." showing a remark
able growth of vegetation leads one to
believe that Sam had someone working
for him previous to the time the pic
ture waa taken.
Mr. Orton will have the views placed
in a conspicuous place, where thev will
attract much attention and give the
stranger an idea of what is doing in
the northern part of the countv.

Hotel Man Expresses His
Confidence in Future
Of District
From the reports of those who have
recently visited New Pine Creek. It
would seem thst the High Grade min
ing camp as well as the vicinity of the
town are indeed dawning upon toe
era ot a great boom.
Numerous Deoole are arriving almost
on every train and there ia now a large
number ready to rush to the mines as
soon as the enow clears from the dis
trict. It is said that town property baa
advanced enormously In value and in
soma instances prices have crept n
twenty five per cent In almost as many
hoars. Options are being given on
mining property and some important
deals have transpired recently.
in conversation with J. H. Miller
who last week purchased the Lake
hotel, it waa learned that he ia an ex
perienced mining man as well as hotel
keeper. He came to New Pine Creek
immediately after seeing an assav'made
of some High Grade ore in DeoverT
Numerous mining people, he said were
eagerly watching the analysis of the
samples and when the results were ob
tained, which was an enormous figure,
great excitement prevailed He Is
thoroughly familiar with conditions of
the famous Crionle Creek district end
predicts thst this has just as bright
prospects if not better than tb.e world
renowned Colorado diggings. He says
he knows of numerous mining enthus
iasts who contemplate visiting the Pine
Creek district just as auiek as weather
conditions will premit an inspection of
the grounds.
"I wrote fiftv letters, to Colorado
people telling them cf the - wonders of
this country." said Mr. Miller while
in Lakeview last week, and "I am con
scientious in making the statement
tbst the High Grade will mnke the
coming dmtrict of the West this sum
mer." He has planned extensive im-
; provements for the Lake hotel and
will convert the some into a popular
resort. He will be joined bv Mrs. Mil
ler about April firsc when tbev will
take active charge of their property.
Lured to New Pine Creek
By Reports of The
High Grade
(From Examiner's Regular Corres
pondent.) Lillian K. Malcolm who had "Death
Vallev Scottv" faded as a prospector,
during the earlv davs ot the Goldfield
and Bullfrog excitment. has landed in
New Pine Creek, and is getting her
outfit readv for a trip to High Grade as
soon as possible. She had heard of the
good things and rich mines that are
being opened in this section and has
come to look for the precious metal
that in High Grade is known to
abound. Miss Malcolm was a consi
derable factor in the nalmv Goldfield
davs. and she has trod the blistering
sands of DeatL Vsllev and with her
smsll prospeotor's pick has broken
rock from manv a erooing in the Fun
eral and Panamint ranges, that border
the great depression that in places is
far below the sea level and is the home
of the chuckawalla, sidewinder and
rattlesnake, and where many a pros
pector has perished from the rsvs ot
the parching sun. A tvpical western
womau. dressed in pioneer stvle. with
her trusty pistol in her felt she fears
neither men nor beast. She goes over
the mountain and desert searching for
the precious metals. She hss climbed
the ice capped mountains of AlasTa
and was one of the first women to
reach the goldtields of Dawson Citv.
Miss Malcolm came hern from Nevada
where she has r-ren for several vears
and where she has been verv successful
in her mining vent ores. She has now
eome to New Pine Creek and will re- (
main here as the reports from High
Grade have satiuiicd her that thia cart
of the country is In lina nr iK
J great mining movement.
