MISSOULA COUNTY MINES
The Camp of Carter Promises to Come to the Front This Season. The Well-Known Iron Mountain Looks Better Than Ever It Has Before. lfty Tlosionads Dollars Worth of Ore for Shilpment--tr5ke of Gold In the at. Joe Country. Idaho. Special to The Independent. MtssovLA, May 17.-A few days since a representative of Tox INDEPENDrNT had oe easion to visit the mining camp of Carter, in Spring gulch. The progress of this camp has been slow and those who, with Rood reason, expeoted it to rapidly develop into a large mining town have been disap pointed. This is largely due to bad man agement on the part of some of the com panies operating there, and also to the claim owners themselves. The Keystone mine has been the main-stay of the camp. it has been worked nearly continuously for the past two years. The vein has generally been small, but the ore has been of good grade. The bulk of the other properties of the camp have been concentrating prop ositions requiring the expenditure of large sums in machinery, which though making their development to a productive basis slow and expensive will eventually bring them to the front as great mines. Of the Spring gulch mines none have received a larger amount of development than the King. Something over $25,000 have been expended on this property in driving tun nels and sinking shafts. A month sines a large ore body was encountered in this mine on the 150-foot level. This ore is much higher grade than any previously found in the mine, and assays well in lead. silver and copper. The drift has been driven about sixty feet into the ore body and the faoe is all in ore of good quality. In fact, this may be considered the most important strike ever made in the camp, as it will most certainly result in bringing it prominently to the attention of the public. A erosscut made on the ore shows it to be fourteen,feet in width. A raise of twenty feet was made; this also in solid ore of good quality. At the present time five men are working on the King and ten on the Keystone. This week a meeting of the directors will be held to consider and ar range plans for the building of a conoen trator. O. Jeldnese. who has been working the Little Anaconda all winter under lease, will sommence packing the ore out to the wagon road. I he snow has been too deep to per mit its being done sooner. He now has between $8,000 and $10.000 worth on the dump. It is thought that the Little Ana eends company will erect a concentrator this summer. The 0. It. & N. mine, which oceagloned considerable excitement three years sinee, is closed down and has been for a year past. This property has shipped considerable good ore, and it is generally thought that with a little more development it could be made a profitable mine. 'here is every probability that the coming summer will end the long period of comparative in activity in this camp, and much ore will be shipped. The aew bridge over the Missoula river between Iron Mountain station and Sa perior has been completed, and the Iron Mountain company is now hauling ore over it. The Iron Mountain mine has been the most productive in the county, and now, at a depth of over 1,100 feet, looks better and shows more ore in eight than at any previous time in its history. Extensive surface improvements have been put in at the mine, and it is now one of the best equipped properties in the state. A narrow gange railroad runs a mile and a half from the mine to the head of the tramway. A small locomotive is used to pull the ore ears. The tramway connects with the mill. A large new steam hoist is beins placed in the tunnel, 1,000 feet from its month, and at a depth of 900 feet from the surface. This hoist is located deeper below the surfnce than any other steam hoist in Montana. The shaft is at present something over 200 feel below the level of the tunnel and with this hoist can rapidly be sunk so that it will be the deepest shaft in the state. During the winter, owing to the bad condi tion of the roads and the non-completion of the bridge over the Missoula river, only a limited quantity of ore has been shipped. The bulk of the ore and concentrates have been stored in bins at the mine and mill, and there are now over $50,000 worth of consentrates on hand. MININO IN IDAHO. The Strike at Newport-RIch Find Re ported In the St. Joe Country. N Special to The Independent. SPOKANE:, May 17.-Aseays from ore taken from the recent strike at Newport, Idaho, J ahow $36 in gold, $75 in silver and $50 in F lead, or a total of $1G1 per ton. There is said to bea good-sized ledge of the ore. Newport is located on the Pend d'Oreille R river where the Great Northern crosses. Ni L. K. Armstrong, editor of the Northwest E Mininng Review, has been made general S manager for the Crawford company's pro posed gold mill, soon to be erected hbee. It will have a capacity of ten tone per day and t will be operated primarily to ahow rining men the practical weo kin of the machine. The company will not boy ore at breseent, but will do custom we k. ]Late in October of lest year three pros- tl eootors, S. P. Fairweather, A. P. Caummack and Perry Altiffer, of Obourn, Idaho, were e prospecting in the ht, Joe country, some p miles south of the C eur d'Aleue region. Thev found a stroig ledge of mineral and promptly located three claims u; on it. They were driven out by the increasing itn clemency of the weather and the abundant snowfall before doing any development work, though they brought out with them a quantity of specimens from the strike. No assay was uBile from the rock until a few days ago, as the men did not think that it carred anything beyond the usual a percentage of sei yr and lead, with possibly i a little copper. To their great surprise the oe was found to average $42 per ton in gold, in addition to silver and lead. The three men will spend th ensuomnrr in de- r velopment work upon their clanois.

The F@orm of $tlft Full Skirt Whioh Rae Comns to Stay. The form of stiff, full skirt whioh has come to stay olears the ground and is cer talnly prettier than a osant skirt of the same length. Those who have screamed steadily for a shirt at once short and pretty mast stop, for they have got it. The talk about its making the little women look so short is all nonsense. As long as all wo men insist on dressing alike, the tall women will look tall and the short women will look short. Besides, the short woman was so likely to have a small waist and to be big below the waist, and the sheath skirt was merciless to this. The shortness of a woman meant that she had too much hip girth for her height, ae often as not. The full skirt settles that in its own way. If one has good natural lines, the fashion that follows them is the one for her. If the lines are deficient or bad, disguise or suppleoment them. If she is beyond help, she will do best to exaggerate its own effect in her gown, thus letting the gown get the blame, and not her. The tiny slip of a toothpick woman has a chance of being seen now. The plump little person can be a down. right puff ball, and what better doss she want? Then the tall, slim woman-well, she is ever all r;ght. The material of the gown sketched is pale Iavender vigogne, garnished tastefully with black guipure lace and lavender and canary shangeable velvet. The skit is very wide around the bottom and is stiffened. It is trimmed with a narrow flounce of lace hav ing a strip of vigoane above it tied at regu lar intervals; above this is a zigzag ruching of ehangeable velvet put on in irregular points. The round waist is fall and has a tape-like effect of black lace at the shout ders. The collar is of vigogne, covered with lace. The wide belt of folded velvet fastens invisibly at one side. The sleeves have a full puff from shouldor to elbow, of vigogne, and a long tight coff of velvet, As the fine weather approaches we are remind ed that baby must have as much air and sunlight as possible' Therefore it is very important that you buy a baby carriage at once.
