OwyKee County, IdaJvo Carries the record of being the greatest gold and silver producer in the state from its quartz mines. War Eagle, Florida and DeLamar mountains are all contiguous to Silver City, the county seat and largest town. It has been de monstrated that the veins carry their values to great depth in these districts. Cheap power is supplied here by the Swan Falls Electric Power Plant, with ilnes running to the mines. In addition to the above are several promising districts in the eounty— South Mountain, Flint, Cow Creek, Rooster Comb, Pixley Basin and others. Rare opportunities offer themselves here for capitalists and mine operators, which will bear the closest investigation. SILVER CITY is headquarters for all of them. 3 Silver City Nugget 5 John Lamb. .

IT' STUDY OF CHINESE. AdTMMed by United State« Con.nine As»»t In the Interest, at Amerien. Trade. I Mr. Charles Neuer, United State* consular agent at Gera, in an official communication to the state depart ment advocates the study of the Chi nese language as a means of extending American trade in the Chinese empire, says the Washington Star. China is considered the land of prom ise for our farmers and manufactur ers," says he, "the importance of the knowledge of the Chinese language is greatly undervalued. I submit the de tails of a recent intervic.T with a lin guist who has given special attention to this subject. It is well understood that in order to enter into perman ent commercial relations with a for eign country it is indispensable to know its language. When Kussian in dustries began to develop the Germans recognized that in order to engage in profitable trade in that country it was necessary to learn Kussian, and there is now no country where the Russian language is so much taught as in Ger many. "While "The Chinese language is ideograph ic. It conveys the idea and not the word for the thing, as the figure'»'rep resents the idea and not the word. The Chinese have invented more than* 40, 000 marks for their writing. In the opinion of my informant it will require only about 3,000 marks for mercantile correspondence, and it will be easier to learn them than the words of an ordinary foreign language. "Russian is more difficult for Amer icans than Chinese. It takes much longer to learn the spoken language, because of the variety of dialects; but any one who can learn enough of the writings to answer ordinary purposes in a few month* and have his knowl edge perfected by a linguist within about a year. An exact instruction in one of the Chinese languages can only be given by a Chinaman. "Thi* method has been adopted in Germany. Besides the professor for the theory of language, there are four Chinese linguists in the Oriental sem inary of Berlin teaching the businesa style and the language of Peking, Shanghai and Canton. It is not intend ed to fit pnpils for the diplomatie serv ie». but for commercial work.** Sharpe—What strange sounds your wife is making! I'm afraid she has a fit. Whealton—Don't be alarmed.
