up remarkably well and hopes to be up
and around again soon.
The accident happened up Sluice

..EDERICK JOSHUA WEAVER,
for fifteen years a respected resi
dent in this community, died at his
home in Parkerville at an early hour
Thursday morning, of miners' consump
tion. While Mr. Weaver's illness cov
ered a period of about two years there
were few of his friends who realized
that the end was so near. He was con
fined to his bed only a short time and
the first known by many that his illness
had taken a serious turn was Wednes
day evening when it was learned that
Mr. Weaver was not expected to sur
vive the night. Death came at 2:80
o'clock Thursday morning.
Mr. Weaver was born in Gloucester
shire, England, and at the time of his
death was 40 years of age. He came to
Nevada in 1878 and for the past fifteen
years he has been a resident of this city.
His occupation was that of a miner and
he worked at Granite, Combination and
in the Hope mine at Philipsburg.
Eleven years ago yesterday (the day of
his death) Mr. Weaver was married to
Miss Christine Ecklund, the ceremony
taking place in Deer Lodge. The
union was blessed with five children,
the eldest being now nine years of age.
Aside from his family Mr. Weaver leaves
an aged mother and a brother (James
P. Weaver) residing near New Chicago,
and a brother (George D. Weaver) m
this city. He also leaves a sister (Mrs.
Rev. C, Quinne)) at Virginia City,
Montana. Mr. Weaver was a member
of the Granite Miners' Union and of
Silver State Lodge No. 36, A. O. U. W.
He was master workman in the latter
organimzation at the time of his death.

The masquerade ball given last Friday
night at Firemen's hall by Hope Lodge
No. 7, D. of H.. was the largest attended,
and it is safe to say the most highly en
joyable affair in the dancing line that
has taken place in Philipsbure this
season. At 8:30 the masquers began to
arrive and until 10:80 there was a con
tinual rush. There were in all about
fifty couples present and probably a
couple of hundred spectators. In fact
the hall 'was so crowded that it was
difficult at times to do much dancing.
There were but twenty-three couples in
the grand march, but it was neverthe
less very attractive and amusing. When
the hour for unmasking arrived almost
every masker was on the floor, and much
merriment ensued when the masks were
doffed and the disguised ones made
known to all. The supper served at the
Kaiser house by the ladies of the Degree
of Honor was one of the best ever served
in the city. Many compliments were re.
oeived by the ladies having charge of the
dining room. Taken altogether the mae.

action for a place the size of Philips.
burg, and coupled with the eeneral good
humor that seemed to prevail among all
those present, the affair was conceded a
dePded success, and if one failed to en
joy himself it was his own fault.
