like a flash, grabbed a Winchester

feature of remarkable interest that
this publication possesses, is its I
weather forecasts. These predictions
are not only full and complete, and as
accurate and reliabl us it is possible,
to calculate, but they are definite
geographically, thus localizing the.
predictions and foretelling the
weather which may ba looked for in

of the compauy to put in a hoist and

the property iu a systematic and busi
ness like manner.
J. S. Smith, superintendent of the
Jerome Canyon Copiier company, re
turned last uight from a visit to the
company's headquarters in Los An

the property. He says the very lest
of reKrts have beeu received from the

and that he will iucrease the force at
once and will sink the shaft to a depth
of 300 feet. It is at present 150 feet
deep. The company is in fine finan
cial condition and everything is pro
gressing as favorably as could be
wished for. The indications, as far
as development work has progressed,
are excellent for making a big mine
out of the proerty.

forty fishermen went to their death in
a storm which struck Saginaw bay
Tuesday night. The men were living
in shanties, built on the ice. The
storm broke without warning, and
the wind and waves crushed the ice in
the bay upon which the fishermen's
huts were standing, resulting in
grinding and crushing them into a
shapeless mass. Nothing has been
seen or heard of the men or their
shanties since. It is known that two
were drowned and there is little hopes
that any of the others escaped alive.
