A new camp is being started to the north of Baxter by Mr. Kingsley's efforts. Oliphant & Co., successful operators from Galena has taken a 30 acre lease and started a shaft this week. The formations are ideal for ore bearing territory and no doubt a large camp will be developed to the north. This all meant a jgreat deal to Baxter. The latest strike in the camp was made by O. C. Sullivan and Associates on the Catholic Forty, . ...... it- r r : i-:ii, 1USC Ollie SUUIU Ul JWIUVAUOT tbt where sheet lead . and;, silicate have been struck at the -depth of -40 feet. A six foot face has been opened up of this rich lead and silicate and -sinking is still tn progress. Sweeney, diggings to the north and he Joanna mine, on the Baxter Royalty Co's land, .are the only two d&gings that come any way near the same for mation, as that found at the Sullivan, and ibis Associates. It and would lead to the belief that it is the outcrop of the bJg de posit, demooiastrated further south on the same lease. ... The Alabama shaft to the west of the Sullivan strike has been, cleaned up, and will now be leas Ad tomarties that will eo ahead VUh the furthur development, of this rich mine. Shaft 3?o. 2, on the Eastman Investment Cos lease, from A. V. Abratua, . is proving :.up the drillings which showed .so 'rich at the time prospecting was (done over the hill to the west. A large !rpuntr"of'the ore 'being milled 09 the White Eagle mill, is being taken from this shaft at opment is being pushed tinder the big hill, the ore deposits .are showing up nrJch bct&r" fhsn even the ore at the shaft itself. It only goes to prove up the opin ion of the oldest miners, that with ample development the main ore bodies, will be brougb, under operation and most satisfactory results be obtained. "Many of the mines in the camp have arrived at the above condition, and are now showing satisfactory divi dends each week. The usual amount of ore was milled at the 'Good Luck mine the past week. As the mining operations progress in this prop erty, the more ore is . developed It is one of the prize mines of the Baxter-Quapaw District, and one tht would do credit to any camp. The Good Luck ore sow last week assayed 60.85 per cent zinc. J. W. Barnes is making pro- gress on the Big Four" shaft 01 the Sunburst Mining Company s lease, and has some very rich ore on the dump at the present time. It is his purpose to sink the shaft through the ore before doing any further drifting. This lease contains the largest deposit yet demonastrated in the camp. Heap-O'Brien MCo. is pushing its new mill to completion as fast as possible. With this high price for ore, it urges the mill builders to tax their utmost ca pacity to get the mills now und er construction, into the, produc in z class. This company has a fine showing in the development of two shafts, and is in position to supply the mill with ample ore to keep it running steadil) from the time it is completed. The Forty acres on which this valuable mine is located joins the Charles Blue Jacket land, and we understand the Heap O'Brien M Co. paid $600 per acre for its land, while Paul A. Ewert, Spec ial assistant to the Attorney Gen ral of the U. S., secured deed to the fee simple title from the orphans of Charles Blue Jacket for $25 per acre, And Paul A. Ewert is receiving a high sal ary from the U. S. Government for the alleged purpose of protec ting the widows and orphans of the Quapaw Indians, from the rapacious hand of the whjteman. What a "Mockery and Sham" such conduct is. Operations are being pushed by the Chicago-Quapaw M. Co. with good results on its lease from J. C. Haskett, on the Wid ow Stafford land Joining the Catholic Forty tp the east. J. C. Bryner is ginking-shaft No. 2 on the Joanna mine, on the Baxter Royalty Co's land. This shaft is located 170 feet to the southeast of the working shaft, and will go down on an immense deposit of sheet lead, as isVliowt) by the development in this direc tion underground in. the present workings. Mr. Bryaer feels that he hsstjje best showing of any lead diggings in the Ro?p; Work at the Big Jack tfo, has been resumed and the devel- opment is verifying the drill cuttings as the shaft .is sunk.' This prpmises to be one of tlit big producers jn fhe camp. The; tfre departs at No. 4 shaf slws BRIDGE & BEACH STOVES AND RANGES. Wc have accepted the agency for SUPERIOR (Bridge & Beach) Stoves and Ranges. This means that we will have the best line of stoves in the city. In fact, the best stoves made. We have decided to make room to carry a few of these stoves. What stoves we handle will be the very best If yon want a cheap stove thet will last yon only two or three years, we wont have it But if yon want a stove that will last you the longest, and be the cheapest in the long run. BUY A "SUPERIOR! Wex will continue to sell the stoves we bought with our Hardware Stock, at Cost While these are good stoves, yet we haven't room to carry so many, and we want to make room for our Superior stoves, which we intend to handle exclusively. Wo certainly have soma bargains In ttoves as long as tho old stock lasts. A.

Milling at the McAllister mine is being done steadily, with ex cellent results, by the Tennessee Metal Producing Company, of Memohis. Tenn. The property is under the able guidance ol Lafe Griffith; one of the most successful superintendents in the district. Shaft No. 2 is being sunk to the northeast of the mill shaft, and is down now about 30 feet. A large drift has been cut out under the location of the shaft and work will be kept up from both directions. One outfit sink ing while the seccopd will oper ate from the bottom. A drill hole penetrates the center of the shaft, which gives a dry shaft to work in, which will facilitate the work and reduce the cast to tht minimum. This'is an excellent property and it looks "well to see it under operation again. A new record is being made by the Oklah M. Co. since the strike reported during the past few weeks. While this property. has been a consistent producer, still, all its precious good records have been eclipse during the pas week. With a face of 42 feet of high grade lead and .zinc ores, and a decided jncreafe in , the quantity showing up alPover th north and southwestern sectiom of the mine, this prop'erty maj $ad Jhe camp production. Ith showing eertaipjy justifies th expectation. Another property . is to entei the'produciug list the cominp week, as the Hannibal and St Jot is being purapejj out and the mil is being put into condition to be able to handle the ores, as soot as the mine isunwatered, which will take probably a week. Thi: will add an" other property tc keep swell the record of ores foi the year. "Big typings" around tht Missouri mine this week, when several large gangs pf men, an busy pushing the big 400 tor mill along as fast as possible. This is the largest mill yet con structed in the Quapaw field and can handle as high as 1000 tont in 24 hours. The big double compartment sha't, which is be ing sunk to the west of the largt hopper, has only 15 feet more tt go before it will Rpcp pp into the drift below.
