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.
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
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
A mountain lion was seen near the
wagon brige this week by J. B. Kirk
patrick and J. M. Peppard. His lion
ship sized them up and evidently con
eluded that they were not in good eat
ing condition, for he moved on. 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
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.
The St. Joe Transportation company

Btate, a certified copy of the articles of
