Philipp. Losses of Sheep John K. Stout was iu from his ranch on upper Castle Creek this week and was diligently interrogated in regard to stock losses. He says that unless severe storms occur withiu the next thre3 weeks he thinks he will get off with a loss of not more than five cent on his band of sheep. Besides feeding all his hay he has hauled from the railroad and fed out a large amount ot corn and that his sheep are in near ly as good condition as they were this time last year, but will yield a smaller crop of wool. Mr. Morgan, with his 15,000 sheep, will not fare so well, be cause of his hay supply giving out earlier and because of the scab break ing out. He has l>een fortunate, how ever, in having a large and excellent range allotted to him in quarantine and his bands are getting good feed. So it is thought his losses will not ceed 10 per cent. The owes, are how ever, losing many lambs. Other sheep men with greater numbers on the ranges furthei south are meeting with greater losses. per ex A Permanent Exhibit, In order ihat the intent of the law establishing a bureau of Immigration, Labor andStatistics for this state may,in a measure, be complied with, I respect fully request that the producers of the state assist me in gathering samples of their products to be used manent exhibit at the SUte Capitol. To this end I respectfully request and urge that the farmers, orohardists miners and others having products of the soil or mine of special interest, products which would make attractive as a per or exhibits, forward the same to me. j will take pleasure in paying the ex pense of transportation or assisting in any manner in my power. I believe that a permanent exhibit of this char acter maintained at the State Capitol would be of great value both as an ed ucator of our own people and as attraction to people of Eastern States who contemplate making their home in the West. Therefore 1 sinoerely hope that I may receive the cheerful and ac tive co-operation of producers all over the State in this undertaking. Rees H. Davis, Commissioner of Immigration Labor and Statistics, Boise, Idaho. an I II muTimouTT Albert W. Brunzell, who pointed a second lieutenant in the rine corps of the U. S. navy, about two years ago, lias been promoted to a first lieutenancy. Albert, and his brother. Ludwig, enlisted for the Spain, from the university of Idaho, where they were students; came away from the Philippines, Albert to receive an appointment as an officer in the navy, and Ludwig a cadetship at West Point Military Academy.

This was Mr. Dumple's first Western moun tain experience and he apparautly joyed its novelty greatly. He declared his intentions to return here next July to remain for some time. He impress ed the people who met him here most warm en favorably, and his return will be ly welcomed. A House Warminj Mrs. Ora Nichols bought a house and had it repaired aud refitted, making it a pleasant place of abode. But that is nothing stra nge, for Mrs. Nichols has done the same thing so many times be fore that she now has a long rent roll. But this time the sprightly and popular young madame made a new departure by announcing that she was going to give up her apartments at the hotel and occupy the house herself, and she gave out invitations to her friends to come and attend a house warming last Friday night. They came They in great numbers. They entered into the fun of the thing. Everyone of them brought a long a little token of regard in the form of a present of household articles. There was every thing from an elegant cut glass, silver mounted water pitcher to a sausage grinder. Everybody who came met with a welcome and invited to par take of refreshments which were served in profusion. There were a number of wags there, and everybody was in the humor to have a good time. They had it. A couple of very original wags es tablished a wireless telegraph station and the series of dispatches they re ceived are worth quoting. The first one, dated Dewey Palace, Nampa, 8:30, addressed to our hostess, read: "Have procured special train; will wire from Murphy— R. H. B." Then, succeeding this message, came in order the following: "Guffey, 9:16 p. m. Engine broken down; cylinder head blew out; bave pro cured horse and start at once for Mur phy; look for word from there. "Murphy, 10:05 p. m. Horse given out. Sampson starting with .me with fast team." "Paul's Station, 10:30. Wheel bro ken; one horse dead. Mrs. Paul's cow has sick headache, aud I have to pro ceed on foot." came a was "Tough Nuts, 10:45. Afoot. Have borrowed Branca's snowshoes. Have taken a bracer and will proceed as rapidly as possible." "N. Y. Summit, 11:15. one snowshoe. Send searching party with shovels at once. Look for red handkerchief on stick." to Have lost Am snow-bound. "Powder House, 11:35. Just reached here. Am trying to strike a light— baug—boom—all off with Dick." After this catastrophy had blighted her hopes, the graceless scamps having collected 82 messenger fees, opened the door for the telegraph company's agent to step in and present a bill for ser vice, 842.25. Even then they did not stop. A box arrived, tabled, "Remains of Poor Dick.' to But, upon being opened, it proved to contain an elegant China tea set—an atonement from the boys for the anxiety they had caused their fair friend and hostess. Altogether, this was the most orig inal and funniest party our oamp has given in many a day, and was hugely enjoyed by everyone. Tom Daly re marked, "I have attinded a good many the-ay-ters in my time but this bates them all." TT ummm T m T ANOTHER. IM VT PORTANT TRANSFER Oliver Sells His Interests in the Sugar Load Group—Work to be Continued, A deal was made, Monday, whereby John Oliver sold all of his interests in the Sugar Loaf Mountain group of claims to his partners Paregotti and Francisco. The location of some of these claims was the cause of the ex citing rush made from here, about a year ago which one night took about every horse in town and about 100 people over to Sugar Loaf mountain. Only Perrigotti aud Oliver stuck to the proposition at the time, Barney Francisco going in with them later The three of them located fourteen claims. Two or thr. e men have been kept steadily at work on them ever since. They ran one cross cut tunnel 300 feet and cut a ledge 20 feet wide, at a depth of 175 feet from the surface, and have drifted on it 400 feet They located two other veins respectively 4 and 6 feet wide which they hare pros pected extensively. It is now said that the partners working ont there have been very carefully sampling all the prospects and having assays made without Oliver knowing it, they wish ing to get him out and that the deal is the result and that the seller has 81,000 and regrets. This group of claims is very elligibly located on the railroad side of the sum mit, below snow line, three miles from the road from Murphy and 20 miles from that place. The veins are in granite and are said to carry no base metals and to be free milling. It is said a local capitalist is standing in with the pur chasers and patting for them. on. chasers and patting up for them. A $1,000,000 Jackass V Noah H. Kellogg, the man who dis covered the famous Bunker Hill mine; Jhe man after whom the town of Kellogg was named; the man who pensioned a jackass and paid a man 850 per month for look ing after his long-eared friend is dead. He died at Kellogg, on the 17th instant, aged 71 years. Mr. Kellogg was a prospector who, in 1885, while in search of gold, picked up a chunk of galena, which, without realizing its val ue, he showed to another prospector, Phil O'Rourke. The twain, with a burro, which they had obtained with a former grubstake, located the Bunker Hill. The owner rf the burro because of his grubstake and the burro being with them when the mine was located, claimed an interest. The property.was sold for 81,500,000. After a time the matter was settled by a compromise which awarded the owners a handsome sum. This was the origin of the many stories which have been written about a million dollar jackass. It was also the first discovery of galena in what is now the greatest lead producing dis trict on the continent. Change of Firm A. McGovern, of the livery firm of Gardner & McGovern, has sold his in terest in the stable, stock and business to S. L. Gardner, brother of his former partner, the firm name hereafter to be Gardner Brothers. Mr. McGovern's reasons for selling being that Mrs. McGovern's fine ranch near Jordan Valley demands all his attention. The practical jokers have been out this week in great force. The jobs they put up on the B. P. O. E's who went to Boise were good: we surmise when those fellows get home again they will pay back in the same eoin. These fel lows are not so slow on jokes them selves. Here's to the kicker, the old chronic kicker—the kicker so helpless and blue, who always is crying and never |is trying some good for the country to do. No use to correct him nor need we expect him to get to the front like a man, for while others rustle, he'll man age to hustle objections to every plan.
