Sundries I0',a0 Total aale 209.130 10.220 Value; xinc, $3.7o; ,ead $273: t0,a, $4,055- The Oklah Mining Company sold a car of high grade zinc con centrates, which topped the mar ket the past week. This mill is being run full time and prepara tions are being made to put on a double shift. A new tramway, of the arial type, is to be install ed from shaft No. 2 to the hop per, as soon as possible, which will give the mill ample dirt to keep it going double shift. As the development progresses in this mine the ore becomes much improved and the present owners are making arrangements to make this the big producer of the camp. At the Big Jack the dirt is showing up very rich in the de velopment at shaft No. 2, where the mill stands, and the work in shaft No. 3 is getting to the point where the ore from this shaft can be trammed to the mill, which will give a steady run of ample dirt to keep the mill running double shift. Some very rich ore is being hoisted from shaft No. 2, much of which is free ore, being mined from open ground. The Common-Law has suc ceeded in draining its property, which lowered the water at all the mines, on that run of ore, north of the big lime bar which divides the south camp, and in cludes all the mines to the north and east of the Common-Law property. The mill will be started up this week and run steadily, as the ore bodies have been opened up sufficiently to supply the mill with dirt. Work at the Red. Feather is progressing well, and some good ore is being milled. A car of ore will de loaded from this diggings this week. It is reported that the J. C. L. is to be started up during the present month. This property has an excellent equipment and has three shafts to supply dirt from. Salina people are the principal owners. Work . sinking the Joanna shaft is being pushed by the op erators, and a large drift is be ing driven to encounter the sheet lead deposit which is dipping, to the east and south. It is ex matter. MAY 20, 1909. pected that this drifting will be completed within the next week, at which time the hoisting of the sheet lead will commence again. Bert Sweeney's diggings still attract the attention)!" the camp by the amount of free lead that is being mined. Several addi tional shallow shafts are being sunk in which the lead is found. To the south of the Bert Swee ney diggings, Standley and as sociates are sinking a shallow shaft and at last report they were just breaking into soft ground with indications of the same lead which is found across the road. . West & Scott, who are work ing a shallow diggings south of the M. K. & T., are getting out some lead with a good grade of silicate, which they are cleaning up at the creek, near by. The Red Wing milled a batch of ore on the Good Luck mill this past week that ran about 20 per cent zinc. This is the rough stuff after hand jigging the fine ore out of it. This diggings is proving up to be all Mr. Rice ex pected of it, when he started the development. A boiler and hoisting outfit has been set up at the Strong Bow shaft, and development will be pushed at this diggings. No. 2 shaft on the Eastman property has been put into com mission the past week. An ore hopper has been installed and the ore taken out during devel opment will be sorted and sent to the mill. The main development at this property is showing up very veil and the mill is being run steadily with satisfactory re sults. Two .cars of ore were load ed the past week. Sunburst No. 4 milled about one hundred tons of rich ore at the Good. Luck mill the past week. The development has1 been pushed by drifting in all di-' rections at this shaft, which! shows the ore body to be extend ing in all directions. The rich ness of the ore is attracting the attention of the entire camp, and leases adjoining this are being' taken up rapidly. Lee Bowser, in sinking on his ' lease to the west of the Newland mine, has encountered silicate at a very shallow depth. Sinking at the Paola shaft, to the southwest of the Lancaster, 1 has progressed so rapidly that the ore body will be struck this week. The drilling record has been verified remarkably close in the sinking of this shaft. Twelve feet of rich ore was developed in the drilling and no doubt this' will be demonstrated this week. The turn-in from the Quapaw reservation for the week ending Saturday last, including the Bax-tcr-Quapaw and Miami camps, was 716,150 pounds of zinc con centrates, and 134,470 pounds of lad concentrates, which sold for $14,993. This places the Quapaw reservation third on the list of camps producing for the week. Webb City-Carterville and Jop lin being the two camps which lead this district in amount of money received for the ore sold during the week. This is. cer tainly gratifying when it is ta ken into consideration that IS camps were reported on the pro ducing list, many of them having been producers for many years, before ore was thought of being mined in the Qnapaw reservation With the properties that will be put into operation this year the output of this district will be much increased, . and no doubt will put this district in close po sition for the second place on the producers list. A custom mill would be a good thing for the north camp to have. as there are several shafts which could be worked toadvant aire by the miners, if they had some place where they could mill the ore taken from the several properties. Something over 20 shafts are now idle, that could be worked to advantage, if the milling facilities were such as to enable the miners to mill their Try Our Way THERE are two ways of buying wall paper, and you are in terested in knowing which way Is the better for you.

Prevailing prices on xinc ore was erratic the past week, rang iiicr from $37 to $39 the first part of the week, to $36 and then back again to as high as $40 at the close. Lead prices jumped to $58 per ton, with indications of a further raise this week. With the peculiar conditions that sur round the lead supply it seems as if this product must show a radical raise in price as the con ditions of the conntry returns to a normal condition. The stock on hand is comparatively small, the production is being taken freely, and is going into con sumption, which forebodes a scarcity of lead to meet the im proved conditions which are sure to come. The production of lead is not very elastic, as just about so much lead can be produced in a given time, and even though the price might go to an extra ordinarily high level, it would take years to prepare for much ot a production over what is now being made.
