West of CooDcr's, Baxter Springs The amount of ore turned in last week was not large, but it will be noticed that one of the old producer is in the market again. We refer to the .IF, which has resumed operations, and is again producing ore in marketable ouantities. This mine has been shut down to al low some repairs and improve ments to be made to the mill. In the mine new bodies of ore have been opened up, and richer dirt is being encountered. The ore sales last week were not large, for the reason that the producers did not believe the ore buyers were toting fair in the of fers they made. The mills are nearly all run ning, however, and the output is very satisfactory. The McAlis ter and the Spring River, two new producers, are making lots of ore. The transportation problem is a matter that bothers a great deal, but inasmuch as the elec tric line, which will handle not (nly passengers, but freight, is practically assured, that difficulty U going to be overcome very f oon.

After a few bills were allowed, the talk was for the "good of the order," and on motion an invitation was extended to -Mr. H. B. March bank, the "boy orator" of Joplin, to visit with and address the Ex change next Tuesday night. We don't know what Mr. Marchbank will talk about, but we do know that he is an interesting talker and a very funny sort of fellow.

Every concern r.eemi determined to forge to the front and great quantities of ore of an exceedingly high quality laid bare in the, more fully de veloped properties is a revelation to men from other fields. There is no end to the resources of this district and large bodies of pure Galena ore are continually being located. The Baxter Royalty Company and the citizens of Quapaw have had a hole drilled at Quapaw, both for the purpose of hunting ore and for water purposes. Last Saturday the drill went into ore at 138 feet and continued in ore to 156 feet. The cuttings are very rich, averaging all the way through 13 per cent jack. The strike is very important for the reason that it- proves the exist V VM AP W VS?

The Indiana mill is ready for the machinery, which has been delayed in transit. The manager, J. C. Sproull, is not idle, how ever, but is busy filling the hop per, and opening up the under ground drifts. Everything in this mine is of the most flatter ing nature. The Spring River Mining Com pany made its first turn-in of ore this week, 70,000 pounds of zinc which assa3ed at 61.04 per cent. It is the amount of production that makes a camp show well in the eyes of strangers. C. G. Jones, manager of the Luther Mining Company, which is drilling the 20 acres north of the Lancaster, was here this week. The company is making some good strikes. E. G. Lawley and J. E. Gam biel of Birmingham, Alabama, have bought an interest in two pieces of ground in this camp, and will return shortly to develop the same. The Good Luck mine is getting some good lead since it started up, after four months of idleness. They have two drifts from the bottom of their 100-foot shaft. Louis E. Hohraan and W. H. Clark of Chelsea have been here this week looking after their in terests in the Cherokee mine, su perintended by Wm. Copp. E. F. Sweeney purchased the operating company's interest and equipment in the Independence, and will soon start the mine up again. Mrs. N, E. Chapell of Oklaho ma City visited the camp this week.
