P.('L.IAi, TO TIIE INTI:R MOLNTAI.. Anaconda, Jan. a6.-- Al. Stevens, who lives on the main fork of Rock creek, in Granite county, although a miner and pros. pector, is also something of a trapper. In a letter to a friend in this city he de scribes the result of one of his trappln4 expeditions down the creek a few miles bie. low Moose lake, near which his caluian i situated. He writes that there are some beaver on the creek and that in addition to his daily til of digging out of the ground the gold nuLggets that are reported to ie so pllentitul in that region, he was occasionally doin.g some trapping. tie asks that the fact thiat he is trapping a few beaver he kept a se cret. as he understands that it is against the law. ()n l'uesday of last week the prospector invented a new xhaver trap that he tie lieved would be very ettective. Like all great inventions it was a simple anatir and easy to arrange. An auger hole was Ihr.ed in a log. a small fish was dro!ped in. and then four sharp steel nails were driven in at an angle so that the eraver could tlhrust its paw into the hole to get the fish easy enough. but could not withdraw it. lo IN LIBRARY AT OLD MANILA Would Like to Get Fifty Books From the Smelter City.

It was nearly dark on last Tuesday evening when he had the con trivance completed and dropped in the fish. it was only human to reach in to see ,ow it would work. and almost before he knew it, it had him tight. The mo-e he strug gled the deeper the barbs sank into has esh.
