Mr. Casswell is a hail fel low in any man's country, and the Idaho is a-sured of an increased pat ronage through his instrumentality.

The American peo ple are responding to appeals for aid as no other people ever do, and that great winter resort will soon be itself again. Work was resumed on the big De Lamar tunnel Monday morning. The east drift of the tunnel is now just starting into the vein zone from which so much ore has been taken from the upper workings, and not only the own ers and management, but the public generally, will watch with deep inter est what the near future will develop in that great property. The question as to whether or not the values ex tend to that depth is to be settled.

Hide. The Sinker tunnel enterprise has been segregated from the numerous undertakings of the War Eagle consol idated company, the capitalists put ting up the mouey for the enterprise aud goiug it alone on that great under taking, R. J. Anderson still remains the agent for the reorganized com It is understood that this has pauy. beeu brought about at the instance of Timothy Regau, the owner of the great group of mines the tunnel is being run to tap. Mr. Regan preferred the tuu nel to be the whole thing instead of a kite with a long string of buttons of doubtful weight hitched to it for a tail. It is one of the most important under takings in Southern Idaho, and can af ford to stand or fall on its own mer its instead of being tied up with the Twin Springs in Elmore county, dred ges, mines, prospects and quartz mills' and God only knows what other under takings iu Boise and other counties.

Prof. Plumstead, the character de lineator, gave a recital at De Lamar Saturday evening to a large and well pleased audience. He left for Salt Lake Tuesday. Mr. I'lumstead had a large anil well chosen reportoire, and it is noteworthy that in the three en tertainments given here the programs increased in interest. Mr. Frank Stewart, of the Trade Dol ar mine, received from friends iu Portage county, Ohio, Wednesday, 150 gallons of genuine maple syrup which has been snapped up here iu a hurry by people who learned to t-ujoy this de licious delicacy iu the East. It is of this year's vintage aud Nugget can certify that it is the real stuff. The Statesman was just a littie prev ious iu asserting that the last spike had been driven at the Swan Falls dam. It is true that the spillway and apron have been completed across the gorge, but from tweuty-five to thirty men are still employed there ffnishiug up the work, and probably will not be through until the last of the mouth. It is a great piece of work. Willie, the little son of Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Ballard, fell in Jordan Creek last Friday evening aud would probably have drowned had uot the accident been discovered by J. W. Lawrence, porter at Maruny & Petitt's barber shop, who promptly jumped iu the swiftly rushing water and rescued the little fellow.

He stayed around fera couple of days and then lit out. Attorney Cunningham and Sheriff Rock would like to find the ungrateful wretch.
