C. Brrner & Sons are put ting in a new hoisting apparatus at the Joanna mine No. 2. The Lolita is pushing its mil to completion as fast as possi ble. and expects to be in posi t ion to start up bj the first of May. Work on the Myrtle property has started and as soon as the water can be pumped out, the mine and mill will be put into commission. Rhoades & Sparling are in stalling machinery at the shal low shaft west of the church on the Catholic Forty, where lead and silicate is found a few feet from the surface. The Mascott mine made its first turn-in of ore during the oast week, but it did not get it in time for the weekly report. This is a new mine and promise . . -.- !

The zinc ore market showed a decided advance the past week, reaching a base price of $45. This is in face of a decline in the price of spelter. Lead steady at $50. Shaft No. 2 of the Memphis property was put into commiss ion the past week. Development will be pushed at this shaft and the ore taken to the mill as fast as taken from the mine. Many of the mines and milk in the Miami camp have been idle waiting for pumping to bt started by the Church diggings, north of the Emma Gordon, which is estimated will drain al' the present camp, and now tha' this company is about to start, most of the mills are preparing to start also. This means a great revival of the ore output from the Miami camp. The Oklah, operating on the Baxter Royalty Company's lease, completed its shipment of six cars of zinc ore, being the largest single sale of ore from the Baxter-Miami camp. The six car brought approximately $8500. Several cars are still in the bins, only the amount included in the sale being loaded out at this time. This property is now male 10 to 12 tons of high grade con centrates each day, and it is ex pected that this output will be increased to 15 tons per day with in thirty days. Messrs. Daugbertv, Harris and Neusbauw of the Omaha-Petersburg Mining Company, were in the camp for several days last eek, investigating the different propositions made to tbem by the different mill building firms, tor the construction of a big con centrator on their lands north of the Mission mill. The most striking specifications and plan? submitted ware those by the lo cal firm of the Hood Implement Co., which were outlined by Thomas Hackwood of the East man Investment Co., introducing the sizing system on a larpf scale, following out the construc tion to apply the same principle that have worked so satisfactorily at the Eastman plant. While this plan is more expensive to in stall, it has been demonstrated that when installed it docs the work and effects a material sav ing over tne oiner types in use in the district. It means mud. to the Baxter camp, the building f such a mill as is contemplated, md we hope to be able to report ihe letting of the contract in the near future. Fifty Books, Six Months, Two Dollars.

He can take his produce to town in good or bad weather, in the busy sea son or the slack, and can chQpse his market and the time to sell He can telephone his orders to town for supplies and receivt them bv parcel or freight at his door, instead of hauling long distances over bad roads. By arrangement the farmer carfhave the metropolitan dailies to read at his breakfast table. He can visit a hundred miles from home and return the same day with greater ease than to drive to the average town, then wait tbe Dleasure of the steam train, and get back the same day "if he can." He can turn his farm in to a pasture except a few acres and make a good return produc ing milk, rrarden truck andsmal fruits, which the electric cars will each day take to a ready market. The progressive farmer can in a short time keep in close touch with the great world around him and enjoy the broadening in Suences which always accompany more frequent intercourse . with the people at large. This is always the result of cheap, convenient and rapid transportation. Healthful home life of the country can be main tained and the children will be nore reconciled to living on the farm, instead of flocking to large centers of population. There is more meaning in the above statements than can be expressed in mere words. Dis tant cities'are uniting into one jommercial community and the dividing line between city and country is fast fading away. The quick, convenient and cheap transportation is working a rap id and mighty Change in the modes of life and thought, in the customs and achievments of the whole pedple. There is a class of farmers in Cherokee County, especially trib utary to the great Quaker Val ley, that with the aid of Liter Urban lines will become inde pendent from truck, fruit grow ing and dairy products.
