L Campbell shipped a lot of ore re cently from the Headlight mine through the sampler. The Hope company made a shipment of three bars of bullion, containing 4,794 ounces of silver last week. John M. Long, one of the prominent mining men of the district, returned Tuesday evening from a trip to Butte.

It is understood upon good authority that work in the Butte crosscut at the West Granite has been entirely sus pended for the present.

The output for the week ending August 15, was 35 bars of bullion, containing 60,925.04 ounces silver and 31.47 ounces gold. Work at the millsite is making good progress, though the hard nature of the country rock makes progress a little slbw at times. About 175 men are now em ployed and it is expected that a number more will be put to work soon. The rail road right-of-way has not been definitely settled for the entire distance yet. In one case the 'ontractors, foremen and each and every one of the workmen were arrested as trespassers. This case was carried to Deer Lodge after having been tried in the justice's court here. It is to be hoped that matters can be brought to some sort of an amiable understanding so that progress on the mill can be con tinued and the railroad branch com pleted. The rails are already laid a dis tance of three miles from Philipsburg, and trains are now running to the end of the track with lumber and other sup plies necessary in extending the branch. BI-METALLIC. The new hoisting-works at the mine are being pushed ahead with great en ergy, and will probably be completed in about twenty days. They will soon em ploy as many men as before the fire, and expect to resume operations and take out ore in about six weeks. The big pump at the 500-foot level will be reached this week. Work at the new millsite is going ahead with great rapidity. The water ditch was completed a few days ago, and the millwrights will commence work in a few days. SAN FRANCISCO. About all that can be said of this mini has been mentioned in these columns is previous issues. The stockholders fron St. Louis who were here last week to at tend the meeting returned last Friday and all expressed themselves as being en tirely satisfied with the mine and its management. They will commence shipping ore agai, this week through Austin's sampler. The big pump will be moved down to the 400 foot level, where most of the men are now at work. SYDNEY coNSOLIDATED. Reports from this property continue favorable. Supt. Gable says that sinking is going on as usual, and the indications are as favorable as could be desired The new pump works to perfection, and all work is being done to good advantage. They expect to strike the vein in the early part of September. Mr. Gable went out to the mine yesterday morning. The annual meeting of the company will be held at the office in Philipsburg, on Friday, September 7, at 12 o'clock x., for the purpose of electing nine trustees for the ensuing year. BUCKEYE. Reports from this mine are favorable as ever, work going ahead with good re sults They are still sinking the shaft and are now down 110 feet. The ore at present is not htugh gra e, but as soon as the crosscut is made to the main vein it will probably develop rapidly. The Kalamazoo (Mich.) Telegraph was sold yesterday, Ex-Gov. and Congressman Dingley of Maine and hiseon, E. N. Ding. ley, being the purchasere. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. The ball game l.st Sunday between the Granite and Philipsburg nines was won easily by the latter, the Hill boys failing to find the ball after the first in ning, when they got two runs. The home boys scored one in the the third and two in the fifth innings, which won the g.ime. If the club had some backing they would play the Granites at any time, but the fact is they are financially embarrassed and are obliged to take all the challenges and say nothing, but will surprise them some day in the near future. Among a number of fishing parties which went out last Sunday may be men tioned one composed of Messrs. John Duty and Charles A. Wilson and Miss May Murphy. We are not advised as to the amount of the catch, but suppose it must have been a large one, as the par ties returned considerably sun-burned. THE MAnL would like to know why a fusilade of questions is required to be answered at the central office before tele phonic connection can be had with any one. McL od & Harris are rapidly gaining prominence in the boot and shoe busi ness, and is is about time, for they have a very neat stock of the popular manu factures. In an inquiry as to the cause of John Harding's gayety yesterday he answered that it is a bouncing boy. The mother and child are doing well. The telephone office is becoming about as big a nuisance instead of an accommo dation as the Western Union Telegraph office. The infant son of Mr. and Mrs. John Ider died last Monday of inflamation of the bowels. DRUMMOND SCHOOL. An Entertainaent to be Given which Promises to be a Credit to the Town.

SWhen a lady begins to dream dreams g and see visions, look out for her, for ,r there is no knowing what she will do. I know a young lady who is troubled with a husband and a year-old baby, with a curly, golden hair. The other night she had a dream. She dreamt that she was dressing before the looking glass in the back parlor. Looking into the front e parlor through the folding doors she tbe held her husband in much too earnest conversation with two young ladies. One of the young ladies seemed greatly in terested in what he was saying and their , chairs gradually drew closer and closer together till it came to pass that the watcher on the other side of the folding doors observed her husband's arm steal round the waist of the young lady. This was more than the indignant wife .e iEold stand, and she crept quietly behind I me preoccupied couple and aimed a slap e at the girl which would probably have lifted her head from her shoulders. So powerful was it that it knocked the whole scene completely out. The dreamer awoke, and so did her husband, 3 and likewise the baby. The gas was i turned up and revealed a very surprised looking group. The baby was the most surprised of all The slap intended for the dreamer's rival had alighted full on I the curly, golden head of her son. Brooklyn Eagle. Russian Taste In Colors. While our steamer was lying at the landing at Kazan I noted a chocolate brown house with yellow window shut ters and a green roof; a lavender house with a shining tin roof; a crimson house with an emerald roof; a sky blue house with a red roof; an orange house with i an olive roof; a house painted a bright metallic green all over; a housediversified I with dark blue, light blue, red green and chocolate brown, and. finally, a most extraordinary building which dis played the whole chromatic scale withi i the compass of three stories and an attic. What permanent effect, if any, is pro duced upon the optic nerves of the in- t habitants by the habitual contemplation I of their brilliantly colored and sharply contrasted dwellings I am unable to say; but I no longer wonder that "prekrasni," the Russian word for "'beautiful," means t literally "very red."--eorge Kennan in TheON OuIy.
