The Cham bcr of Commerce has done all that is possible and Individually the commit tee has subscribed liberally for stock in the new enterprise, but other Bax ter Springs men with capital have not "kicked in" as it would seem they should. Here is a new industry that, wheth er launched here or in Joplin or some other enterprising city, is soon going to become a nation-wide business. Zinc Is just now coming into its own, The shortage of tin and other metals will make practical the substitution of sine in thousands of articles of gen eral use, and the invention by Mr. Greenstreet , of a soldering process that will successfully join zinc with itself or any other metal removes the only barrier that has stood between the great demand for such a substi tute and the great supply of zinc met al that lies buried in the earth sur rounding Baxter Springs. A few hun dred dollars invested now has n chance for personal profit and for community building, it would seem, that rarely comes even in the most prosperous times. The Daily Citizen hopes that Baxter Springs will keep the Zinc Products Plant ball rolling, being careful not to let it roll away from here to a rival city. 4 THE MINING NEWS I ......

COSMOS MILL STARTS ON ST. LOUIS LEASE The Cosmos will be placed in active operation Wednesday, Oct 9. The mill was formerly known as the Lucky Extension, located southeast of Dou- that It was purchased by the Lucky Tiger combination gold and silver mining company of Kansas City, Mo., dismantled and moved to the com pany's lease southwest or fet iiouis. Much is to be expected of the mill in its present location, as from the spec imens displayed by the mining com pany at its office and that on the dumps, plenty of pay dirt will insure the operators of a good recovery. 1 VtMf tMsnsf lHb9V 9Mf M0 Me cause that la to near to the interest of their companies. . The men. who are working for the continuation of the pumping program have satisfied themselves that the water they bare been pumping comes from bo surface river, as every stream south of Galena has been analysed and found to be entirely different from that pumped from the mines. It la a certainty that the water can be beaten, but It will cost money and unlets others will help, the incident is closed, for the pumping companies have quit and the fellows who have been letting George do it may as well hang up. BROWN-HEAD CO. ON KANSAS SIDE WILL BUILD MILL The Brown-Head Mining Company, whose lease is located in Kansas, north of Tar River, near the Southern, the Early Bird, the Kanoma and sev eral other rich propositions, made a change in its management the first of the week and will begin at once to move the Ben Franklin mill from the Webb City Field to the lease. Arthur Rowe ,who has managed the Ben Franklin for three years and who has successfully managed several oth er plants In the old field, is the new general manager of the Brown-Head properties, the one just mentioned and the Crazy Snake on the state line north of St Louis. Mr. Rowe made a paying proposi tion of the mill in the other field with 24 per cent dirt .and is anxious to get it here to put it to work on the extremely rich dirt en the Brown Head lease. The mill has a capacity of 500 tons and it is believed that it can be op erated a full shift from the beginning, as a great amount of work has been done in the ground and an enormous dump is ready to be milled. GRACE WALKER MILL WILL BE REBUILT The Grace Walker mill, which was distroyed by lire three weeks ago when struck by lightning during an electrical storm, will be rebuilt im mediately. Workmen arc on the ground clearing away the debris, making ready for the erection of a now mill which will be a duplicate of the one destroyed during the storm. The Grace Walker has been a pay- .... a i , ing investment to its operators ana hod got to a place when the mill's production was netting the investors a handsome return. Over seven hundred tons of zinc ore was in the bins at the time of the fire, and was sold last week on the basis of $55.00 per ton. The property is owned by the Commerce Mining and Royalty Company. Herald hearing of the wonderful strike, went into the ground of the Redskin Saturday and entered the new cave. To him it seems that the com pany can lay claim to having one of never run regularly on account of con the forty or fifty best mines in the ditions that existed in the organizn LEAD BOY COMPANY OPERATING PLANT AT SUNNYSIDE The Lead Boy Mining Company has begun to operate their mill in the Suimysido Field are recovering 15 tons of concentrates a day, nearly half of which is lead.

ASSOCIATED COMPANY MAKING 64.85 JACK AT NEW QUAPAW PLANT The Associated Lead and Zinc Com pany, whose new mill in the city of Qunpaw has only run a few hours has found that the jock so far produced assays 64.85 and Superintendent Tom Ricks feels sure that as soon as the machinery is tried out thoroughly he can moke it 65 per cent In the one day that the plant was i operated, something over a ton of ore was made after bedding the jigs and the ore token from the bottom if the shaft is much better than that run through the mill. In all probability the sinking will be continued several feet before the oi Umen will begin to Ptope out so field, as he claims that there are that many from which there is little choice. Harry Meyers, .superintendent of the Redskin and Oscar Dial, ground foremun, both of Treece, are to be congratulated on the manner in which the development work has been con ducted. The mill is a model of effi ciency, which has been erected in a very tihort period of time and the ground is equipped with everything necessary to make it an ideal dig gings. The pump scat at the bottom of the shaft is 26 feet long, 20 feet wide and ten feet high. It is floored with concrete and all of the lines are hieh enough to clear tho workmen's head. The Redskin lease has been tested out thoroughly and as soon as the mine has been placed on its feet and paying, it is probable that another mill will be erected where a site has been drilled out and found to be a rich proposition. Miami Record-Herald. tion, but with the new management and the improvements in the equip ment, it appears that the plant is sure to be a winner. CAR STOLEN SATURDAY IS RECOVERED SUNDAY Constable Gene Turner and Sheriff Bob Frazier located a Ford touring car stolen off the business street of Baxter Springs Saturday night The car belonged to Jeff Keith, a farmer. It was abandoned near Crestline after a tire had blown out and otherwise slightly damaged. No clue was left as to who the thief might have been. Two boys, sons of prominent Col ambus men, were the victims or an accidental shooting tragedy Sunday afternoon, the result of a firearm in the hands of boys too young to regard it otherwise than as a plaything. Floyd Hawkins shot and instantly killed his ehum, Elbert Jewett The boys and four others had met near tho depot and the Hawkins and Jewett boys were seated when the Hawkins lad took a revolver from his pocket to show it to his chum. While handling the weapon it was dis charged and the bullet entered the Jewett boy's right side. The boy arose and walked two or three steps and fell. The Hawkins boy hastened to his chum and inquired whether he was shot The boy re plied that he was and then expired. Immediately the Hawkins boy ex. claimed "I have killed my best friend. There is nothing more for me to live for," whereupon he placed the muzzle of the revolver to his own head and fired, killing himself instantly. The distressing accident has plunged the entire populace of Columbus sorrow and the parents and relatives of the young men are prostrated with grief. Floyd Hawkins was the son of Floyd Hawkins, Sr., who has been city clerk of Columbus for ten years or longer. Elbert Jewett was the son of A. L. Jewett, vice president of the Logan Security Company. The young man was a nephew of Mr. and Mrs. S. C, Armstrong of this city. They were notified of the tragedy, but Mrs. Arm strong being at this time seriously ill they have not been able as yet to go to Columbus. The funeral will likely take place on Tuesday, when Mr. Arm strong will try to attend, as will Mr. and Mrs. Logan and several other Baxter Springs friends of the two families. QUAPAW WATER FIGHT MAY NOT BE RENEWED; - SAY INTEREST LACKING It is possible that the big water fight at Quapaw may not be renewed, for it seems that there is little inter est up there except in about three companies. Dr. Adkins of the Red Rose, and Franklin Miller, of the Muskogee, have been very active for the last few days, having canvassed the operators in the Quapaw field and made several trips to Miami in the interest of the THREE MINES OPEN IN THE QUAPAW FIELD; DOWN SEVERAL MONTHS Three mines of the Quapaw field that have been down for some time are to operate regularly it is reported. The Dorris has been running for a few days and the McCurdy and the Rainbow will be operating the first of the week. The three mines mentioned are on higher ground than those where the water has been troubling.

RED SKIN COMPANY SHOOTS INTO CAVE WORTH MANY FORTUNES The Redskin Company has just shot into a cave of enormous proportions, in which there is jack enough to amount to several fortunes. The im mense cavern extends from the Red skin shaft to that of the Lawyers mine a distance or about two city blocks and as far as can be seen it is lined with solid jack, in which there is not so much as a shine of lead. From the new cave are being taken boulders weighing as high as a ton each but the cave is not necessary to make the Redskin a wonderful mine as the solid ground that is being worked is as rich aa the caves. The Redskin company has fought water and spent a great deal of moo in development work but the new 850 ton Mill which has been In operation for o-ly a few days in turning out ore ery fast and Ground Foreman Oscar Dial says he will furnish the plant with dirt to run it one shift a 'day as soon as it is turned up and ready to run regularly. x The mining editor of the Record- Jill OLD RECIPE TO IH Size Tea and Sulphur Turns Gray, Faded Hair Dark and Glossy.''

The evening was spent in games and music after which refreshments were served to the Misses Grace Fulton, Vesta j Talbot, Ethel Enright, Leona Wyatt, 1 The Baxter Springs quota as as signed by the Cherokee county cliap tcr was 100 pairs of socks and 25 hel mets. True to the Baxter spirit for doing all war work with a willing and generous spirit, regardless of quota, the ladies went way over the quota in the first shipment For doing this the Baxter Garments committee received a very nice letter from Mrs. Crain, the county chairman. In the letter Mrs. Crain stated that the county as a whole was consider ably behind with its quota; thereupon, in order to help the county out the Baxter ladies made the second ship ment, which it will be seen amounts altogether to more than treble the quota.
