What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The Empire ‘mill is::working Whip- poorwill rock with good results. The Montana -Mintng. Company has paid $82,500 since January 1. This does not include the dividend payable July. Some very hard rock has been en- countered in the Tously tunnel, and hence slow progress is being made. The St. Louis Mining and Milling Conrpany have purchased a new hoist and it will be in operation at their mine in a few days. if . A car load of ore has been shipped from the Tousely mine and the returns more than met the expectations of Man- ager Muth. Lewis and Clarke county last year produced $968,359.25.

Galsang struck a fine body of ore in the etope on drift recently run.. The tunnel so far has been run under the ore bodies, hence the ore was not en- oountered, The present outlook is better than it has been heretofore and the Cleveland is the largest ore body yet found in thé state. The company will put on a large force if the ore continues to show up as at present... J. N. Squier of Spokane has leased the Buck mountain property and has a force at work developing the Cumber- land. -He is working in a systematic manner and has at this writing a fine showing of ore. CHELAN. (Crrrespondence in Leader.) I have just returned from the Isoletta mine. There is now a 130-foot tunnel on the claim and it looks as well as ever. I saw a party just from Slate creek, | who came down the Methow and up through the Twitsp pass to Bridge creek. Another.party came over the summit from Seattle through the Cascade pass, Both parties said the Cascade pass was undoubtedly the best in the range for a wagon road. They said they had crossed the summit in various places and knew of no other pass that was not at least 1,300 feet higher than the Cas- cade. There is some assessment work be- ing done on claims located on the north fork of Bridge creek by Seattle parties. SLATE CREEK.

Other machinery is here, also, awaiting transportation. GRANT COUNTY. (Long Creek Eagle.) Since gold was discovered in Grant county in 1862, the yleld of the placer mines alone has been about $5,000,000. The output of but very few counties in the state will excel this. Creek Mining Company, during the summer, but the failure of water com- pelled the mine to cease operations for the present. They expect to make a- fall run, reporte Mr. Hamilton.” DOUGLASS COUNTY. (Riddle Enterprise.) William Levens has sok his placer nine on Tennessee Gulch in South Doug- las county to Perry Hinkle of Portland for $20,000, It is understood that a force of 15 men will soon be put to work in this mine, which is one of the best pay- ing mining properties in Southern Ore- gon. South Douglas mines are attrac- ting a great deal of attention just now and the day is not far distant when this section will be the scene of some of tlie most extensive mining operations in the state. BRITISH COLUMBIA. CARIBOO. (B. C. Mining Journal.) The Cariboo Company are now most- ly engaged with matters pertaining to the extension of their ditch to augment their water supply. The recent wash-up was $13,506 for only a short period of time. The Victoria.

AN OUT-OF-DOOR STUDY. HBY had come further than the others, who had straggled back or gone into different ways. They. found eo quite alone, go- ing along the sandy road together, their eyes squinting in the glare of the sun-and half-blinded by the sweep of the earth and sky that stretched away. She held her skirts out of the dust and looked about with parted lips. She had lost her first youth,-but she had a sort of in- extinguishable beauty. The man walking beside her was--a~slight acquaintance; they had niet the day before, yet they scarcely- talked at all. There seemed no need of an ng beyond the smiling frowning look with which: they took in the view, : On op‘side of the road there was a strip of woods in the first mysterious greens. Birds were fluttering in and out of the un- dergrowth, and sometimes of one accord they both stood still to catch the note of a thrush or tofollow with their eyes the aimless “flittings.of the ground sparrows. Afterawhile they came to where the road ran through farm lands; they could see miles and miles on either hand; there was a smell of new-turned earth, and the faint perfume of early fruit in blossom. The man said: “This reminds me of when I was a boy,” and turned his head, sniffing the fragrant air. The woman said: “It is like—like——” She did not finish, but she was smilling faintly. When they came to a fallen cs eal sat. down and looked over the plowed fields, with the hedges budding in faint, misty greens. They sat still staring off over the wide flelds, At the farthest end a man was moving about, who seemed to be sowing something, “When I was a boy,” he began, “I used to plow. in the early spring with the frost on the ground; the place where the ofen had laid was hot and I used to stand warming my feet and tak- ing in long breaths, I remembef those early mornings.” “When I ‘was a chijd’’—they spoke of nothing but the past—“‘when I was a child I knew nothing of this—nothing but walls and roofs and chimneys, and yet the sea- sons pass over them; I can rermember the feel of some mornings.”” She pressed her hands together with the reflections of a remote ecstasy. “‘Some of those days it seemed to me that things were evep—rich and poor and all had the same gift.\’ “Ah, the same gift,’”’ he repeated, and did not say more because it was that of which he thought more than of anything else. Some people said that he was a great man because he had the fate of the poor at heart; others said he wished to make him- self.a sort of demigod. He thought, ““This woman, seeks to flatter me,’’ and was an- noyed. But when he looked at her again he forgot it. She was still smiling slowly and looking away. He did not un- derstand women. Something—some inde- finable impulse or mood—seemed dawning in her. She rose up to go back and he got up. She was still smiling and smiling to herself and looking off. When they came to the green strip of woods she said again: “I—I had nothing of this—no nature mood but what I sensed. I was so alone,” she added with the note of an old complaint in her voice, and then they went along in silence, for the road had dwindled to an indefinite bridle path and they were walking singly. It was not the way they had ie. Some- times the branches hung so low that they barred the way and he was forced-to go before and press*them back. It was cool and green with the leaves shivering and rustling overhead and the sunshine sifting through. When they neared the end of the woods and the long yellow road came to view with the ‘hotel and cottages beyond and people they had forgotten sauntering on, she said: “I must tell you, it is all such @ long time ago—it can’t matter,” and then ‘she bit her lip and flushed slowly as their eyes met. He was not used to sen- sing the mysterious confidence of women, and in his effort to catch her meaning he felt himself thrilling with a conscious- ness he had never felt before; he held back the overhanging branch and she bent her head to pass and laughed softly to herself. “It was such a long time ago,” she said, still smiling and looking straight before. ‘I had no one, no friends, and so I—I loved the people I did not know.” She said this in a low way and her smile had faded to the dim reflection of some withheld thought. They did not look at each other, but kept their eyes on the long sandy stretch before them. “Do you know,” she went on, “one day I—I start- ed for Merton cottage.” At the familiar name he looked up, with a certain dawning sense, and she went on in a hurried, hushed fashion, for the others had stopped to wait for them and there was no time: “I went because 1 wanted to tell you. It seemed the most fiatural and simple thing to do. I was so young, life seemed such a simple and easy thing. But something happened on the way and I had to go back. I cried all night with your book under my pillow, and after that I wrote letters, but never sent them. I began to understand things. Itv te, all remote and impersonal—even at the o I—\ she checked herself with some confusion and then suddenly, strangely smiled—eyes, lips, brow, chin r together. A boy who had.been playing with the children by the roadside broke from and flung his arms about her waist walked on, clinging to her. “This is my little Pagiel,” she was saying as she came up with the others.—Chicago : E caugh: the gro over and crushing infant of the Ate eee crib when the crash came,; house unroofed and a flying stickstruck la are fatally The latest reports indicate that Will C.
