PERSONALS AND MINING NOTES.
H. M. Dunbar is taking out some rich
ore from the Fred Burr.
Schardt & Boyle have sold the F,4.Ta
S. claim to the Granite company for
$1,000.
The Pearl mining company have com
menced excavating for a concentrator in
the valley on section 11.
1Meyerdirk & Kelleher are working the
Ethan Allen claim and say it is looking
first-class and promises to become a
mmie.
J. E. Myer has sold the Black Horse
claim, located at Hasmark, to the Buck
eye company and has taken Buckeye
stock in payment.
J. R. Wilson is working the Black
Horse claim for the Buclieye company.
He has sunk a shaft 15 feet and struck a
2-foot vein of high grade ore.
Although but little has been said of
late regarding the Maroney tunnel, at
Hasmark, work is progressing all the
time, and has found some stratas of
very rich ore.
The prospectors and miners in this dis
trict were never in better courage than at
present. Most all the prospects are
showing up well and many have struck
rich leads of ore.
J. H. and W. H. Stahl, who are work
ing the Hawkeye mine, report very favor
able results from their labors. The ore
is high grade, and they are soon to make
a large shipment.
The Silver Chief is one of the most en
couraging prospects in this vicinity at
present. The ore is very rich and as yet
they have not found either wall, conse
quently they do not know the extent of
the lead.
J. E. Mulford, of the well-known firm
of Switzer & Mulford, mining brokers of
St. Louis, has been making a tour of the
mines in this district during the past
week and says the San Francisco is the
most promising of all.

GRANITE.
The output for the week ending Aug st
29, was 36 bars of bullion, containing
60,627.45 ounces silver and 34.49 ounces
gold.
There is not so much activity as usual
at the millsite of the Granite on Fred
Burr the past week. About one-half the
force of men have been laid off, leaving
only about fifty men on the ground. The
railroad is completed out to the millsite,
and the construction will probably be
commenced very soon.
BI-MIETALLIC.
The new hoisting-works are almost
completed; at least, the frame-work once
more covers the scene of the late ruins.
The big pump at the 500-foot level has
been reached and all work is now bcing
done to the best advantage.
At the millsite on Douglas gulch work
is going ahead with great rapidity. The
grading will all be done this week. They
already have three of the stone walls up,
and are now grading out for the ofice.
The lumber and timbers for the construc
tion is arriving daily, and the mill
wrights will in all probability commence
work the first of next week. If progress
continues for six weeks at the present
rate the mill will be completed, and the
early morning will then welcome the echo
of the new Bi-Metallic mill.
SAN FRANCISCO.
This company is very active in adopt
ing everything for rapid and economical
mining. During the week they have
lowered the big pump down to the 400
foot level, and will commence sinking
Saturday.
In the east 400-foot level- they have 3
feet of very rich ore, and in the west 400
foot level they are just coming into the
contact lime and granite. They expect
some good ore on this level very soon.
and from present indications they will
not be disappointed.
They are now shipping ore enough to
defray exkpnse of sinking.
PEARL.
The work at the Pearl is progressing in
the usual satisfactory manner.
The main shaft is now down 90 feet
below the tunnel level, and the 209-foot
station will be reached during the coming
week.
Good ore has been encountered in the
shaft while sinking.
The tunnel is being rapidly pushed
forward and the best ore ever taken from
the mine is now in the header.
The development of the Pearl has thus
far been of the most satisfactory nature,
and shipments of fine ore may soon be
hoped for.
WEST GRANITE.
The report regarding the suspension of
work on the West Granite is untrue.
Our mining editor visited the Butte
crosscut during the week and found the
usual force of men at work in the header.
1 he rock is hard as ever and work pro
gresses slowly.
HATTA.
The Hatta continues to improve as
usual. They are now down on the shaft
2':0 feet and have struck a 7-foot lead of
good ore. The are soon to make a ship
ment. Mr. Holland, president of the
company, says he is confident that the
Hatta will soon pay her way.
DUNKLEBERG DISTRICT.
Mitchell & Mussi;t :'dd are sinking an
air-shaft on the Forest Rose mine in the
Dunkleberg district.
A. B. Hower and others, who are work
ing the Little Joe, are getting out some
fine looking ore, and expect to make a
shijpment suon.
Dave i)unkleberg is making good
progress on his property. f is new
steam hoist is doing going good work,
and his mine will undoubtedly be a big
success. He expects to make another
shipment of ore soon.
A NEW INCORPORATION.
Messrs. A. M'eyers, E. L. Ligget, Dan
Lanburn, Nat. Vance, Al. Gillis and Dr.
Dixon are the incorporators of what
shall be known as the Dora Thorne min
ing company, consisting of the Old Do
minion, Little Turf, Red Chief and Dora
Thorne claims, adjoining the Sydney
company's property on the north. It
consists of 4,000 shares, par value $5
each; half stock in the treasury. The
treasury stock wii be so'd at 25 cents
The reccnt en.oo.raging reports from the

company making rapid advancement.
A contract 1h-s been let to a well-known

A Weddtng in Gnatem-la.
Even among the Indians the govern
1n- nt has made a civil marriage neces
s:ry, and by law this must be performed
tbefor the priest can perform the relig
Eous cerellony. After both forms have
been complied with the guests repair to
the bride's Iontle, each bringing a basket
to cairry home a share of the wedding
sunlper. The brid'egroom supplies the
whisky, and a viifainous compound it is.
Connoisseurs iav it conti:ns more "head"
than any alcoholic drink in existence.
The bride is dressed in bright colors, the
finery of her entire family being loaned
to her for the day for her adornment.
Over her head, as a marriage veil, she
wears a white coarse muslin poncho. .A
large table is set, and the plntes are filled
with sweet tlhings and other eatables con
sid,,red appropriate for a weddmng feast;
i:is expense is borne by the bridle's fam
ily. After congr:'t:atuig, the happy
pair the guests asmbile arotind the tabll
and drink whisl;y "straight," but by
customn they are lnot pe-ritted to eat a
mouthful, though to lhpicks aresupplied,
and they content themstelves by picking
their teeth between drinks. The del;auch
continues until there is no more wihtl:y,
when each family emlll iCs its plates of
food into its own basket to lie trten on
arriving at home, but the pIla*s are re
