A Group of
' Mining: Operations.
Matters in our mining districts art
taking on a new lease of life and from
present indications Morgan county
will be the scene of some new and
excellent developments. The parties
owning the Eclipse mine, several miles
southwest of town, expect to do some
deep mining this winter and are con
fident of success with what they al
ready have in sight.
A company of Chicago capitalists
have had representatives here during
the past week looking after mining
matters. This company have decid
ed to start operations in the south
part of the county about the first of
January, whereby they will do some
prospecting and drilling on an exten
Last week the Flick-Reed lead
and zinc mine, on the property of
Mrs. Hoist, near Gravois Mills, was
.optioned to Minnesota parties, who
'will begin extensive mining operations
at the mine about the first of January.
This prospect has given conclusive
evidence of good results, as fine spec
imens of zinc ore. can be seen cither
at the real estate offices of Messrs.
Crewson and Harrison or II. A.
Young, and plenty of fine ore is in
sight at the mine. The parlies who
now have the prospect in hand are
determined to develop this proposition
'to the fullest extent, and without
doubt will have plenty of ore for ship
ment from the start.
Several other mining propositions
are pending, and will be reported as

Good Old Christmas Times-
We are now ncaring the good old
Christmas times the season which
should be made one sweet round of j
pleasure, especially for the little ones. 1
No other period can be utilized to
appease that wistful longing, on
change that doubting glance in the eye
of the child to one of pure happiness,
than an appropriate gift from mama,
papa, sister or brother on Christmas
morning, after the little ones have
scanned the many toys and trinkets
displayed in the different business
Gifts should be well selected and
chosen with an idea of what the little
ones really enjoy. What greater hap
piness is there in life than to avail
ourselves of the holiday season to
make those about us happy. It docs
not require riches to promote good
cheer and joy in the little circle
where we live, move and have our
being every day in the year, but it
docs require a little judgment, and
that judgment should be exercised to
the fullest extent that your means will
The worry and turmoil of life is al
ways present, but the period for true
and unstinted happiness only comes
annually at the season when we cele
brate the birth of Christ, whom wc
must admit, must have been the hap
piest when making his sacrifices for
humanity. We all have reason to be
happy this year, and let the good old
Christmas times ring with the anthems
of good cheer in every household.
Let us cast aside any idle thoughts of
discomfort and clothe ourselves in
the holiday joys that make life worth
the living. '
