THE MNES OF MONTANA.
The Olvide Country Attracting the Attention of Experienced Mining Men. Deer Lodge Properties That Give Promise of Large Results. The Georgia Company in the Boulder Dis trict, Park county. to Erect a Mill The Cumberland. Thomas Burdcw came in from Divide dis trit a few days ago, and from him it was learned that preparations are being made for more extensive work than has ever been done in that section. Siuce his last visit to Butte, which was about two months nao, the tunnel on the Mary Francis has struck the vein at 1315 feet from the surface and 800 feet from the month. The width of the ore body is calculated at thirty feet. Four feet of this has been cross-out since the strike, which was on the 25th of March. Five men have been at work, and the ore taken out so far is of the black and yellow sulphuret order. Several assays by Max Mayer, of this city, show $115.49 silver and pearly $2 gold, with some iron and lead. The crosscut will be continued until the hanging wall is struck, when drifting, stoping, and possibly sinking, will be com menoed. Upon his return Mr. Burden will have the ore assorted, sacked and shipped to Great Falls for treatment. He is not only the sole owner of the Mary Francis and two adjoining claims on either extension, but also owns his own teams, and will immediately have the ore hauling rigaproperly outfitted for transport ing ores from the mines to the railway, three miles distant. In the meantime the other forces of men will commence and prosecute work of development at different points along this contact vein. The Curley Bros. are still driving their tunnel and are in 750 feet. From present indications they expect to strike the lead at any moment. It is the same one on which Mr. Burden's mines are located. Over $75, 000 not has already been taken from the shaft, 185 feet deep, by whim power. These lucky brothers are working night and day shifts. They and Mr. Burden are anxious to open up their great properties and are talking strongly of erecting a mill the coming season. The latter gentleman owns a splendid millsite adjoining his claim. He is only waiting a few days to determine whether he will organize a stook company and work the properties on an extensive scale. Aside from the three claims men tioned he owns two others and one-third of fve more, all of which prospect well. On one of the claims of which he is sole owner vast beds of the richest kind of silica have been partially opened up. Messrs. Delmos snd Robbins, the latter a wealthy mine owner and capitalist, will soon put a force of men at work on the leads which they own and propose shipping the ore. John Shober, of Helena, is also largely interested in claims on the Mary Frances lead. He says he recognizes this part of the country as containing mines so valua ble that in a very few years they will prove a formidable rival to the great producers of Butte. He intends to erect works and i-ro ceed at once with thorough development and extraction of ores. Others are likewise preparing for work of exploration, deep prospecting and actual production. W. A. Clark and several Butte parties are also owners in the district. The fact that these mines are but a short distance from railroad facilities gives them an enhanchod valuation and greater en couragement to owners and prospectors. PHILIPSBURG MINES. Work on the Puritan Continues-Royal Gold Placers, it There has not been much to report about it the Puritan company for two months past, a says the Philipsburg Mail. But if the vein 'y of ore struck in the east cross-cut from the C 300-foot level continues to improve as it has P done in the past two or three days, there cl will be plenty to say about the company it and their property. It is the hope of all a that the Puritan has seen its darkest days, and certainly the management are deserv ing reward for the faithful manner in which the "dead" work has been carried on. 8ince the present management took hold of p: the property they have done about 1.,00 it feet of underground work, and for a long et time they hoisted an average of ninety E buckets of ore a day, but the ore in the up per levels seemed to be in pocket formation 81 and did not hold out. consequently sinking aý was continued to the present depth, where a there is every indication. of permanency to I the leads that come together in the east P cross-cut. ti W. W. Turney, of the Royal Gold, was in o town last Friday, and in company with 11 Elliott H. Wilson, the civil engineer, he t started for the mines Baturday morning. In conversation with the Mail representa- r tive, Mr. Turnev said the object of his arip to the Royal with Mr. Wilson wae to lay a plens for operations this season. During the winter several hundred feet of levels a have been run, and to avoid doing any on necessary underground work Mr. Wilson e will make such surveys as may be required to eusie them in future underground work. 'the liyal was neve- looking better than this spring, Ia I peparations will soon he enrse fecr 'tirtirie the muill and will be kept running until winter colmee again. THE BOt 1L lrit (:AMP '.

Arrange ments as being made for hauling coke from this city, and all indications point to a verification of the rumor that the Crm-,. berland will soon resume operations and present a much letter outlook for the great carbonate comp of Castle. Crevice Mining District. Alex. Borland came down from Crevice mining district Tuesday, where he has been prospecting during the past few months. Hle is enthusiatic over the future of that camp. which he believes is assured by the successful working of the Crevice Mining and Milling company. He has secured a number of good locations and is satislfied that they will prove good properties when the necessary development is done upon them. From parties down from the upper Yel lowstone we learn that the Crevice Mining and Milling company expected to stirt their twenty-stamp mill the firat of the week. This is the mill that was so auccess fully operated during lnst year until the water pienes were frozen by the severe weather in December. Several unsuccess ful attempts were made to open these pipes, when the company concluded to suspend work until spring. It is the intention to make arrangements during the summer for a water supply that can be relied upon to keep the mill in constant operation. SET THEM THINKING.

The coming of Patti Rosa, Friday and " Saturday evenings this week, will interest I all those that love amusement for its sake. There is not in the theatrical profession a moot sprightly, bright or original come I dienne than this same little body. Miss I Rosa always has a support that is excep tional in its strength. And there has been no deviation this season. As a matter of interest the attention of the local lodge of Elks is called to the fact that Patti Rosa is its only female member. "The Prodigal Father." "The Prodigal Father" company closed e its engagement at Ming's last night, play ing to a good house. The players did as good and conscientious work last night as they did on Tuesday evening, and George W. Denham, Blanche Charman-Ford, G. I C. Boniface.

Entirely free from the objections-and they d are valid ones-which attach to the mineral ii alkaloid quinine, it is far more effective, and its effects are not evanescent, but last- t, ing. unlike those of the drug. There are a portions of our laud-and none more beau tiful and more fertile-which at no season of the year are entirely exempt from the malarial scourge. In such regions Hostet ter's Stomach Bitters has undergone a con tinuous test for the past forty years, with results which have established its reputa- n tion beyond all cavil as a special defense against every form of malarial disease. For biliousness, also, it is an acknowledged spe cific, and it is a potent remedy for constata- I tion, dyspepsis, rheumatism and an impov- I erishod condition of the blood.

A T INSPECTION INVITED. * IShNDSBROS. ML and Will Get Out. PHILADELHRIA, April 4.-A. A. McLeod, president of the Philadelphia & Reading railroad and Coal and Iron company, ten dered his resignation to take effect May 1. He will also resign the receivership.

KNOWLEDGE - Brings comfort and improvement and tends to personal enjoyment when rightly used. The many, who live bet ter than others and enjoy life more, with less expenditure, by more promptly adapting the world's best products to the needs of physical being, will attest the value to health of the pure liquid laxative principles embraced in the remedy, Syrup of Figs. Its excellence is due to its presee ing I in the form most acceptable and pleas- ' ant to the taste, the refreshing and truly t beneficial properties of a perfect lax- t ative; effectually cleansing the system r dispelling colds, headaches and fevers c and permanently curing constipation. It has given satisfaction to millions and met with the approval of the medical profession because it acts on the Kid neys, Liver and Bowels without weaken ing them and it is perfectly free from every objectionable substance. Syrup of Figs is for sale by all drug gists in 50i and $1 bottles, but it is man nfactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. only, whose name is printed on every package, alro the name, Syrup of Figs, and being well informed, you will not accept any substitnte if offered. *** PATENTS sT* United States and For-'inn Pat ents obtainc-d and any rntlrrnation given.
