From the Column* of Various Idaho Exohanges. The doctors and attorneys are com-1 tng to this city at an alarming rate. How they all expect to make a living here it is difficult to tell. There is very little sickness and still less litigation. —Boise Democrat The Leader is informed confidential ly ftom miners who are familiar with the Sevan Devils mines, that recent developments bring to light ore, that Is from 40 to 60 per cent richer than any ever before discovered. We will see a boom in the Seven Devils camp next year unexcelled by any of late years.— Weiser Leader. The Post Falls Post learns that one of the three lady commissioners to the World's Columbian Exposition for Idaho does not reside in that state. If this statement is true the matter should be investigated at once and laid before the proper authorities. It seems strange, indeed, that Idaho, which is larger than several New Eng land states put together can not pro duce three ladies who are competent to fill the positions.—Idaho Falls Times. D. 8. Wright made a trip to the Ruby Creek mines this week, and says things are flourishing in that vicinity and that new developments were being made on every hand. He says that a man by the name of Fitz. Gibbons has discovered a veiu of galena ore fifteen inches wide, and that he has a shaff down thirty-five feet and at that depth has developed a quality of ore far sup erior to anything yet discovered Themis considerable excitement over the new discovery.—Kendrick Ad vocate. A mountain lion was seen near the wagon brige this week by J. B. Kirk patrick and J. M. Peppard.

The gentlemen returned the compliment by making tracks and honors were even Later—Pep perd came to town and got his little gun and in company with win named Arbudes, started after the animal. They soon overtook it, and killed and brought to town a mam moth lynx.—Caldwell Tribune. A press dispatch from Helena, Mon tana, dated January 26th, says: E. A, Street, a telegraph operator of this city Is $100,000 richer than he was a few weeks ago, but he is aware that he has sold millions for that amount. Street works at telegraphy in the winter and prospects for mineral in the summer. Some time ago he located a placer cl aim |n Lemhi county, Idaho, and bought up adjoining ones until he had 1000 acres. He reported his finds to ex-6enator Tabor, who sent experts to examine, and on their findings paid Street 0100,000 for his property. It is reported that the placer property is worth fully $15,000,000.—Shoshone Journal. A bill has been introduced to es tab llsh the Idaho scientific school at Osborn, in Shoshone county. This Institute of learning shall contain school of mines, by the name and style of the Idaho Scientific school, pro vided, that the citizens of that place donate to the State forthat purpose tract of land consisting of not less than ten acres in one parcel, suitable for said purposes, together with a valuable mining ledge, whereon the practical experiments in mining can be made. It provides that when the amount of $10,000 has been realized from the sale of lands for this purpose, then will the State commence work on the college for mechanical arts.—Idaho World. Yesterday another placer claim was located, of forty acres, by Joe Williams and Horace Ostrander. They took five pans of dirt from their ground to Kirt ley creek and, finding a bole in the ice, panned out, on au average, five cents to the pan. The diggings is a dry gulch about four miles easterly from town. What a field of wealth lie in those hills will never be hilly known until some capitalized company puts water thereon from the Lemhi river. There is at least thirty miles of rich ground on that side of the Lemhi. If the Michigan Mining Company bad carried out their plan of constructing their ditch it would have been a bo nanza to them and thousands of dol lars to Lemhi.—Salmon City Recorder.
