The new mill of the Newlands Mining Company started opera' tions last week, and with the showing of ore they have, Mr. Merritt will undoubtedly score a big success with the proposition. The Lancaster's under ground development continues to show unusual rich bodies of ore. Dur mg the past two or three weeks several tons of pure galena have been taken out of the south shaft of the Omaha. A rich strike at Quapaw has already been reported, but all of the particulars have not been published, and they are certainly of great interest to every one. The vein of ore was struck at 138 feet, and with the exception of 5 feet of lime the vein continues without interruption to a depth of 201 feet, which shows an ore face of 58 feet. As has often been related, this camp has theore, and has it in great abundance, proven over and over by the number of drill holes, as well as by the shafts liavo lwpn Hpuiirnpfl hv Frank Caulkins, with a view of letting low-p" cent ore- In Wisconsin t cftA- -:n 4i.-iwnen mey gei a vein 1a mcnes first unit of a 1000-ton miii) thick they feel that they have ...u:.t. 4.u... . itortune, ana 1 must say that in wuiv.11 mcj iiupuc IM VII . - the property this summer.

This selvage carries lead, and in addition the Virginia has made some remark able showings, which fact is of particular interest, because the mine is the farthest west in thd camp, and most 01 tne big ieaa strikes have been in the east mines. The Cherokee, Mission, Kramer-Morse and Virginia lead strikes prove that with develop ment great bodies of pure Galena are going to be brought in throughout the entire camp. ' At no time in the history of the Quapaw mining camp has everything looked so prosperous as now. The past week has re vealed some exceedingly rich ore mines, and enough ore in sight and enough ore stoped down and lying on the floor to make any company immensely rich. 'It is the greatest camp that I have ever seen, and, in tact it is so tar ahead of all others that there is no comparison to be made, and anyone can truthfully say that the Baxter camp is a camp all by itself, for its resources are double and probably quadruple the re' sources of any other camp in the world thus far discovered." These expressions, coming from a man who is a practical miner, and who has visited and worked in what have heretofore been con sidered the world's greatest lead and zinc properties, are certainly worth publishing, and are well worth the consideration of the public in general.

The rain of Monday night was the heaviest ever recorded in this country. Beginning about ten o'clock the rain fell continually all night, and at times the fall was very heavy. Spring branch, which runs through this city, be came a regular river, and broke over its banks in several places. At the planing mill a big boat which had been setting on some trestles, was washed away and went down stream some distance. Fences and outbuildings along the stream suffered considerably. Spring river got out of its banks, and by eight o'clock the next morning was eight inches deep between the bridges and was still raising at noon Tuesday.
