known Christmas group of mines on
the Hassayampa owned by the form
or for the sum of $12,500. Four
claims were transferred, and they ad
join the Billy Boy interests of Mr.
Block, which gives him nine loca
tions in the group, all under his in
dividual ownership. The sale estab
lishes a very attractive proposition
and in future operations the group
can be handled in a very economical
manner through the main tunnel on
the Billy Boy. From the tunnel
evel an additional depth of over 350
feet will be established from the sur
face and when the mountain side is
reached in a drift, practically foot
for foot will be gained for an in

Billy Boy. On the Christmas several

limited depth reached shows attractive
Mr. Block took over the Billy Boy
about a year ago and has maintained
a steady force on it since.

associated with the development of

of water the year round, and econo
mical methods to handle the output.

from the manager states that the old

be more than sufficient to meet all
the current expenses connected with
the mine and the other properties of
the company. A further portion of
the machinery for the oOO-ton plant
has arrived at the mine, and 50,000
feet of lumber has been cut for the
High grade ore has been encounter
ed in the El Rayo mine, Santa Bar
bara. The strike was made in the
northern part of the property about
250 feet below the workings in which
a rich strike was made about a year

the vein and another vein was en
countered. Tho ore runs about $.15
gold per ton.

out their share of bullion bars for

sume operations at the Lustre prop
erty, situated in the state of Duran

ed hands several times in the past
and lately it was purchased by an

J. Justice, of Los Angeles, is in
charge and over 150 men are em
ployed. Later it is planned to em
ploy in the neighborhood of 600 men,
and a large mill will be erected. Tho
trouble with the property in the past

fruit is saved. W. H. Poyer who ar
rived during the day from the same
place confirms Mr. Willis' statements,

I went to the hospital, and they oper

said medicines would do me no good,
and I thought I would have to die.
At last I tried Cardui, and began to

RICH STRIKE IS
YUMA, Ariz., April 21. Arfvt3
were received here this morning f
one of the biggest mining strides
ever made in the history of mining
in Arizona should the advices ptoT
to be correct.
In the tunnel of the Big Eye mine,
yesterday afternoon a very rich body
of ore was found which will assay
$15,000 to $10,000 per ton, and if the,
ore body of this immensely rich rock
should prove to be of any size the
fortunes of every man connected with
the mine are made beyond the per
adventure of a doubt.
Heretofore the assays of the ore
from the Big Eye have run between
$50 and $200 and of this ore it is al
ready known that there is enough
in sight to eventually make the Big
Eye one of the best producers in
But if the new strike of phenomin
ally rich ore proves of any size then,
the Big Eye immediately becomes
the biggest mine in Arizona today as
nowhere in the territory is there h
mine that will show sueb values.
Connty Treasurer George Michelser
and Jack Dunne of the Ruby are,
now out a't the "White Elephant mine
which is an extension of the Big Eye
and as they are expeeted home to
morrow night, they will be able to
