It joins tbi'Big Forty lease of the Sunburst fining Co., where the ' jinking on its shaft No. 4 is mak- ing such- a favorable showing, and it iS on this lease that the heaviest deposit of ore. has bejn found of any fat the camp. i Work on shafts, No. 2 and 3,' at the Big Jack property, is being pushed;' the dirt taken out is be- ing milled and is yielding verj . well. 'This promises to be one oi 'the richest mines yet opened up in the camp, as the ore is madt in open ground, in the free state, and it is easily mined and milled. A bier strike has been made in the Consolidated Mining Compa ny's mill shaft at the 130-foot level. This is on the Baxter Roy alty Co's. land in the Miami camp and is just west of the Golden Hen mine and mill and north of the Miami-Yankee property. At the Good Luck, the heavy rain washed out the pond, which put this property out of commis sion for the greater part of the past week. However, one car of ore was loaded from this property during the week. Development at the Joanna is progressing nicely, and the stope leading to the lead, deposit, to the east, is about completed. As soon as this is finished produc tion will again start up from this property. Sinking at the Paola Mining Co's. shaft, has penetrated the ore bed, and it is now drifting on a tenfoot face of fine ore. The drilling on this ten-acre lease showed a large deposit of ore.

E. W.Dow. Manager. MRS. BOTKIN TELLS THE EARLY DAYS Decoration Day First Observed At Baxter Springs in 1870. . The first decoration day exer cises ever 'held in this section of the country was then that .the widows of the thirty-nine years ago tomorrow. It was then that the widows of the brave men who gave their lives in order that the-union might be pre served first started, the custom of decorating .the graves of their loved ones. Foremost among the leaders in this since long lived movement was Mrs. Mary NesHtt, widow of Captain James Nesbitt, now Mrs. Mary M. Bot kin.., She with her little girl, Kitty Nesbitt, together with sev eral othefladies, drove over to Baxter Springs and decorated the graves of General Blunt's Body guard who ' were murdered by QuantrilVband. 'On the first Decoration day there were no roses with which to strew the graves, a'nd wild flowers were fqreed to answer. Since this first Decoration ' day Joplin has grown and progressed, but on the Decoration day in 1870 only three log houses: were in this neighborhood one near what is now Cast Joplin, one in Spring Grove and one on the road near Carthage For many years after Mrs. Botkin removed to Joplin it was customary for Joplin people to drive over to Baxter Springs and decorate the graves. It was not until the O. P. Morton Post was establishee here in 18S2 that Decoration day was obserbed in Joplin. As department president of the W. R. C. Mrs. Botkin issued an address to the corps. Among other things, she urges a full observance of the day and then says: "It brings back to my mind the scenes I have passed through from the beginning of that bloody struggle until the end. I, among thousands of others, was doomed not to be reunited to the husband I had watched and waited in vain for his return. But it was God's will, not mine."
