MINE IS NEAR SHERIDAN Rich Pay Streak Has Been Encountered and Property Will Be Fully Oeveloped. The Bismarck Nugget Consolidated .Min ing company which is operating the To lelo group of mines at Brandon, three and one-half miles from Sheridan, Madison county, expects to start its Ioo-ton concen trator in a few days. The company has been installing a very complete power, con centrating and smelting plant and will soon be added to one of the regular producers of the state. Fred A. Rowlands, who has just re turned from a visit to the property, says that it is as complete a plant as he has seen in some time and the mining proper ties are looking very favorble. Rich Pay Streak. In what is called the No. a Bullion mine a vein of ore nine feet wide was encount ered a few days ago at the 45o-foot level. It carries aso ounces of silver, $so in gold and runs about 6o per cent lead. There is a ricd streak about 18 inches in width, the balance ieing concentrating ore, the con centrates running about $ag per ton. The No. a mine shows a body of ore t6 feet through the vein at the Soo-foot level with no hanging wall in sight. "The showing of these properties is an unusually good one," said Mr. Rowlands today, in discusing what he had seen. "They are arranging in the No. a to sink a double compartment shaft s,ooo feet if necessary. The concentrator will be start ed about September t. The company has a too-ton smelter with a water jacket lead blast furnace." Electrical Power. The power to operate the concentrator and smelter is furnished by an electric 6oo horse power plant, the electricity being generated by water taken to the plant in a two-mile flume with a vertical head of 375 feet. A I'elton wheel will be used. It is the intention of the company to furnish the electricity to light the town of Sheridan. 'rite ore is to be hauled to the concen trator by a tramway one and one-quarter miles long, having a capacity of 6oo tons in 24 hours. I.. I). McCall is the president of the com pany. J. J. Maloney the general manager and D. S. Davies superintendent. Chicago People in It. Among prominent Chicago people inter ested in the Bismarck Consolidated com pany are Newel C. Knight, of Knight, Don nelly & Co., Jesse E. Hall of Belding, liall & Co., W. II. Stanton of Belling Bros., and James F. Gorman, general freight agent of the Santa Fe road. The company is also operating the U. S. Grant mine in Alder gulch, a IS-stamp mill with vanners and cyanide plant being installed. AT THE THEATERS The divine Patti will sing in Butte Jan uary 25 for positively the last time. This farewell tour of the Baroness Cedarstrom is final. So Marcus Mayer assures us. Mayer, whom everybody in the Northwest knows, or knows of, is to manage this tour, as he has managed Patti on al her tours of this country. Marcus says that Patti will sing only 60o times in this country. Butte should be puffed up on having secured one of there THE DIVINB PATTI. concerts. Moreover, she is is guaranteed $S,oo a concert, so Butte will have to at tend en masse if any money is to be made here. Robert Grau Is to bring the baroness over here, and the name is In itself suffi cient to Insure the money's worth. In the supporting company are Mmine.

One of the most pleasing features in connection with the revival of "East Lynne" at the Grand Sunday Is the return of old John Dillon. For go years this actor has been regarded by thousands of theater patrons as the best comedian of his generation. There is no question that had his health b6en always as robust as it is now in his dad year, John Dillon would have been recorded in dramatic history as the superior of Sol Smith Russell. It is a peculiar coincidence that in "East Lynne" John Dillon plays the part of John DilL "The Chaperons." Sunday evening local theater-goers are to enjoy a peep at the big musical comedy, "The Chaperones," concerning which so much has been heard. The merry melange of music and mirth, interpreted by a com pany of more than so, comes tthe Broad way with the flattering indorsement of a successful New York'run and a prosperous tour of all the larger eities, covering a period of two seasons.

Struns. 4tory of "The Climbers." "The Climbers," a new and original comedy Ly Clyde Fitch, which was pro duced by Miss Amelia Bingham last sea son at the Bijou theater, New York, proving to be the sensational success of the year, totaling a run of aoo nights, will be seen here at the Broadway this evening. 'The play owes its success to the perfec tion of its production, to its brilliant col lection of Interpreters and to the careful attention to detail in all matters exercised by the actress-manager. The story is one of sorrow, devotion and temptation. At the time of her father's death Mrs. Sterling learns that her husband is con nected with dishonest money dealings. She makes heroic efforts to save him, as sisted by her husband's friend, Mr. War den. Love develops between Mrs. Sterling and the latter, but is mastered. Serious as is the theme, the play contains many illuminating bits of clever comedy. The dressing of the women throughout the play is notable. The scenic equipment gives the proper idea of luxurious good taste. The presentation will include Wilton Lackaye, W. L. Abingdon, James Carew, Ernest Lawford, George Spink, James Kerney, Caer St. Aubyn, Bijou Fernandez, Frances Ring, Adelyn Wesley, Maud Tur ner Gordon, Georgia Cross, Helene Lack aye and Lillian Wright. A Woman's Complexion. It is rank foolishness to attempt to re move sallowness or greasiness of the skin by the use of cosmetics, or "local" treat ment. as advocated by the "beauty doc tors.'
