Mr. I dEgerton was asked about the

of the upper end of the unworked ground

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

Mr. ILentz is making arrangements to

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.

Is Drilling to Beat the
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

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.
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.

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

"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.
