Nugget received the following from Father Dempsey dated from St. Al phonsus' Hospital at Boise: Mr. Lamb— Ou Sunday morning at 8:00, I met with a very painful accident at Nampa. A large five inch nail pierced my shoe and entered my right foot piercing it through I am doing very well at the hospital. I will be de taided here for at least two aud pro bably three weeks. My assistant Rev. Father Haegy will take my place at Silver City next Sunday. He will at tend also to Dewey and DeLamar. I remain Yours etc., A. E. Dempsey." Last week Nugget announced that a lelegram was received here from Durango, Mexico, which, interprets/ from the bad Spanish in which it written, told of the death of R, C. V iams, who formerly resided here. Ii has beeu interpreted quite differently by an American familiar with that language, who says that it means that the gentleman is well a d located in Mazatlau. We hope he is right aim the Greaser was "off." Mr, F. E Wilson, the new manager at Sinker Tunnel, was over Wednesday from the tunuel. He has for some time past been having work done to represent uupatented claims for the company, and receutly has bad the foul air pumped out the tunnel. He found a cave about 2,000 feet from the portal which they are now engaged in taking up. It is not serious, being merely a piece of loose ground fallen down. He does not intimate when the company will resume work ou the upraises.

The work was doue on the ore chute where it dipped out of the Shafl. It clearly demonstrates that the ore chute con tiuues.

'Dear is, prospected by Kenneth McLeod and John Hogan west of the old Chariot and Minnesota mines. They have a vein about one foot in width on which th>-y have sunk at seveval points, at every place revealing rich ore. Hogan took out of one of these holes achnnck weighing probably 175 pounds, plaster ed all over with free gold. Those who have seen it Bay that the entire chunck will yield more than a dollar a pound. The vein iB propaply a stringer run ning out from the Minnesota or Chariot. The long string of mines constituting the property of the Sink er Tunnel company, has been noted for such stringers, some of which have netted small fortunes. Games of all kinds at Getchell's. Mrs. Simon Harris who, in company with Mrs. C. J. Johnsou, has had charge of the Idaho art and state school exhibit at the St. Louis and Lewis & Clarke fairs, has arrived from St. Louis and is visiting a few days with Mrs. Johnson.

The gov eminent will also be well represented atPortlaud, aud as Idaho's building was sold to an es husiastic Texan, a uew design, not yet decided on, will be erected at Portland. Mrs. Harris is highly pleased over the seven premiums awarded on Idaho art aud school works besides the first and second world's prizes for other exhi its aud industries of Idaho. She admired the grand sight, but deplored the deep mud in May; admired the best music of the world gathered there, but des pised the heat in August; felt proud of Idaho's success, but shivered at the thought of the raw, cold weather of St Louis during November. Mrs. Harris and Mrs. Johnson will leave for Port land in time to.have all Idaho's exhi bits in their line in place by January I. Visitors at the St. l^uis fair asked many questions which the ladies say are yet unanswered, namely, 'Tu what part of California is Idaho located?" "Isn't that California fruit which I see marked Idaho?" "What kind of clothes do they were out there?" ' Ain't you afraid of Iudiaus?" aud many similar questions wh oh show that but f w are fa niliar with the extent, size and pos sibilities of our great state.--Pocatello Advance. Dolls at Getchells.

It was a square break. Dr. Hamilton was called aud soon reduced the frac ture aud Mr. Getchell is uow getting aloug nicely, though suffering consid erable pain. With the Jokers. ''Once there was a long, slim, lan tern-jawed customer that used to come to mv place once a day to get a 5 or 10 cent lunch," the retired resta iy-ant man was saying, "and after he had paid for it he always took a match, put it in his pocket, and went out I used to wonder what he did it for, as they were of no account to him. They wouldn't light an> where but on the box. Safety matches, you know. One day, after he'd bien doing it for about six months, I thought I'd surprise him. Just before he'd finished his feed I took all the matches out of the box and slipped them in a drawer. A minute later he came around to the cashier's desk, handed over his dime, and reached for a match, as usual. There wasn't any. His face lighted up quicker'n you could say scat! " 'Hello!' he said. 'You don't need this empty box, do you?' " 'No, I guess not,' said I. "'Well,' says he, 'I'll just take it, if you don't mind. ' " 'Take it along,' I says. 'I reckon you've earned it. ' "Think of it, gentlemen That durned old tightwad had about 200 safety matches laid away somewhere, waiting for a chance to get a box he could light 'em on. Now he'd got the box and the outfit hadn't cost him a cent. Some men are too mean to live!" * » The inhabitants of the island, after seeing the light of civilization, met in mass convention to discuss the matter of organizing a government of their own. "I move, you, Mr. Chairman,'' said one man, "that we proceed to organize a republic." "Pardon me," said another member who had accidentally found a news paper that had floated ashore from a shipwreck. "But I am of the < pinion that we would do well to investigate first." "But what is there to investigate?" queried the first speaker. "We ought to investigate and ascer tain if we have anything here that one of the 'world powers' might want. If not, we may proceed. If we have, we need do nothing, for the aforesaid 'world power' will step in and insist on teaching us self-government as long as we have anything worth taking."— Commoner. * # Going in debt is like falling out of a balloon.
