Me'n fromn that loeal ity say that the Eglanoc Mining oren pany, which owns 600 acres of placer ground there at a considerah le distance below the ground worked out long ago, has discovered the old chanonel that yielded so richly of gold in the '60s and early '70s.

Bedrock Is Deep. Mr. Edgerton was in Marysville on Frl day evening andt In answer to £ questlot said the purpose of his trip at that time was to confer with the other trusteel about future operations. As soon as tit channel was definitely located on Wed neiday a new shaft six feet by eight fee was commenced and this is being driver as rapidly as possille by three shifts t, the bedrock of the channel, which lie, abshout 46 feet below the surface. Thl. shaft will be made the main worklng entrance through which all hoisting ant pumping will he lone and from whirt the pa:y grnvol will he drifted within a profitable radis, which Mr. Edgertor I thinks may Ie as much as t00 feet both iup and down the gulch. The Intention Is to make the equlpment thoroughly modern and economical, and to this end H. It. (ldaker, the general manager, who Is now In the East, is conferring with the manufacturers of mining machinery there. From $2 to $8 Per Yard. Mr. I dEgerton was asked about the values and stated that the exploration of the upper end of the unworked ground has been consldt.rable and returns values running from, $2 to $8 per cubic yard, or, as the old miners at IAncoln express it. from $15 to $60 per "srt of tlhtaers."

In addition to its virgin groulnd, the 1.,ghlinl ciiompany has a large amrn',tt of ground that will yield a profit to work that was not liprotable in the idays when labor was high. This lies up thhe gulch in the old workings. The history of lineoln gulch is a part of the history of Montana, It being one I of the five great "diggings" In the state. The ground lies comnparatively flat andi the old workings commence where the hbedrock drain caugiht the bedrock and extend to the head of the gulch. The values were unilforln throughout this en tire distance. In the large area con trolled by the Eglanol company it is hoped these values continue and that soon Iincoln gulch will again be the ~''entie of an nativity equaling that of its bonanza days.

The shaft will be sunk on a lead already et posed by a 30-foot shaft. At the 2E5 foot level crosscuts will be run to eta several other large veins that have be.% prospected on the surface by a large tnumber of shafts to depths from 10 to 50 feet. Netted Good Money. The company has recently shipped 11 tons of ore to the Colorado smelter at Butte that brought returns averaging over $100 per ton in gold, four tons of p which sampled as high as $175 per ton. This ore was taken from one of the lends that traverse the entire length of the property. As regards the lead that will be developed by the shaft it Is a large one and shows a width on the .turface of nearly 40 feet. The ore is a concentrating one and of such a grade that It will pay handsomely with a sulitable mill. Negotiating for a Mill. Mr. ILentz is making arrangements to secure the King mill, located about a mille and a half from Twin Bridges, on the Big Hole river and Is run by water power. This will give employment to about 10 men, while at the mine a force of about 15 to 20 men will be put to work. Mr. Lentz will soon begin the work of overhauling the mill and adding new machinery, which will put It If good condition for treating the ore from the Big Show mines. Mr. Lentz Is a thorough, capable mining manager, and has had many years' experience In mirt= Ing, covering the entire West, and with the strong financial backing composed of many of the best men in Cincinnati, 1 is bound to make a success, as all tha is necessary is to reach depth and dp develolmnent work, to make a big pro ducer of the Big Show and mines in the group. INFANT MORTALITY IN RUSBSI In Many Governments it is 40 Pe. Cent. or More. (By Associated Press.) London, Jan. 15.-The St. Petersburg correspondent of the Times says alarm ing figures In regard to infant mor tallty are made public by the medical reports to local authorities. It appeais that in many governments 40 and even 50 or more per cent of the children dit. in their first years. The mortality is attributed malnliy t the Ignorance of the peasants and to the fact that the mothers frequently neglect their children in order to work in the fields. Another cause is said, to be the employment of wet nurses, neces sitating the feeding of the nurses' chil dren by artlliclal means. In one government, where the mor tality of infants among the Chrlstlans Is 342.1 per thousand, the death rate among the children of Mohammedan parents is 140.4 per thousand. The Mohammedan law compels mothers to nurse their own children. STOLE SPOONS AT A BANQUET. New Year's Guests of Abingdon Knights of Pythias Under Ban. (By Associated Press.)

JONES WILL SINK A WELL He Is Now Organising a Company in Minnesota--utte Corporation Is Drilling to Beat the Band. It was thought last summer, when the many and varied rumors of the dura bility of the oil lands in the Kintla lake country first assumed a tangible shape, that when winter set in the interest in oil would abate until next spring, but, on the contrary, at the present time, the enthusiasm is decidedly on the increase instead of decreasing, as was expected, says the Kalispell Bee. During the past few weeks two large companies have been organized with the sole purpose in view of drilling for oil just as soon as the weather will per mniit. One of the companies Is the Inter national Oil company, which intends to develop that section of country near the ('anadian boundary known as the Chief Mountain district, and the other, the Northern Montana Oil company, will sink wells in the vicinity of Bowman lake, south and west of the properties owned by the Butte Oil company. Others Coming Up. At the same time there are other com panies in process of formation which will be incorporated in a short time. tfne of the new companies will be com posed of wealthy and prominent men of Minnesota, who are, according to re ports, much Interested in the develop ment of the oil fields. J. T. Jones of this city, who owns and controls several thousand acres of land in that section of Flathead county, is now In Minnesota engatged In forming the Minnesota company and reports that he Is meeting with much success in his efforts. It is Mr. Jones' Intention, as soon las the company is formed and enough capital secured to at once commence ac tive operations by sinking wells on the property. The majority of the companies were organized by residents of this city, and through the sale of stock there are but few people In Kallspell who have no In tercst in the suncessful outcome of the work.

At the present time the operations of the Butte Oil company have progressed in a manner decidedly satisfactory to the men composing it. The drill is down to a depth of nearly 600 feet, and from now on more rapid progress will be made. As the depth Increases the size of the drill used decreases, and as the power remains the same much more work will be done. During the past two weeks about 20 feet per day was drilled, but after Monday, the shaft will be sunlk at a rate of from 25 to 80 feet per day. The other companies will also erect derricks for drilllng purposes as soon as practicable, and next summer that por tion of the county containing the oil fields will be dotted with small camps of workmen engaged In the work. A big rush is expected to set In for the oil fields in the spring, which will put to shame many of the mining stampedes of the past. HERE'S "FUSS FUNGLE" MZXTUJRE The Drink Peculiar to the "Bowery" District of MeXeesport, Pa. (By Associated Press.) McKeesport, Pa., Jan. 15.-Since the publication of the story about Mayor Black of this city persuading several drunkards to swear off numerous inquir ies have been made as to the nature of "fuss fungle," a beverage mentioned in connection with that story. "Bowery fuss fungle" is a drink found nowhere else in the world, perhaps, than in the "Bow ery" district of McKeesport. It was introduced by the l8av residents of that section and has since come to be the standard drink of the "Bowery." Its composition to an unskilled rectifier of spirits is a little difficult. The component parts are alcohol, burn ed brown sugar, water and New Orleans molasses. Properly mixed this stuff will start a fight in a church. The "Bowery" is inhabited largely by foreigners. They have ideas of their own regarding economy, and these ideas often extend to what they drink. Two dollars' worth of material will make enough "fuss fungle" to keep the "Bowery" in a police court humor for three days. A "fuss fungle" drunk lasts from 24' hours to a week, depending on the constitution of the drinker, tl is the popular drink at weddings, christenings, funerals, when there Is a circus in town and when there Isn't. It is good for fighting, writing poetry, painting pictures, or any of the other things which go to make up life and for which men usually require inspiration.

(By Associated Press.) New York, Jan. 15.-In line with the general plan for establishing a new sye tem of trade relations with Paraguay, James A. Coe, a prominent iron merchant of Newark, N. J., has been appointed vice consul for that country. Several months ago Consul General Rutis of Philadelphia forwarded to Par aguay the names of vice consuis he had chosen for various cities, and the ore dentials have been forwarded. Mr. Coe says Paraguay is a market for nearly everything Newark manufac tures, and that there is a great oppor tunity for Americans to go there and build railways and set up machinery. 'Phe country produces goods and ma terlael which are In demand here. "My position," says Mr. Coe, "which Il purely honorary, will enable me to put the manufacturers here in direct comn munication with merchants In-Paraguay and with officials who have the order ing of public necesslties. Want Our Goods. "Paraguay is the first country of South America to appoint a commercial vice consul, but it is likely her exaniple will be followed by others apd there will 'be markets of almost unlimited capacity demanding our goods. Paraguay also desires a market for her products. "Dye stuffs in large quantittes grow there, as do certain fine qualities of wool. Hides, horns and tallow are to be had, and recently the country has been ex porting a certain kind of tea which many prefer to the Chinese article. "Minerals are mined there.
