The Independent, in its notice of the deceased, says: “Mr. Hand was a man of souDd judgment and sterling qualities who during his long residence among us endeared himself to hosts of friends who are grieved and sad dened by the nows of bis death which al though not wholly unexpected, has oast a gloom over the community whose heart lelt sympathies are extended to the bereaved widow in her sore affliction.’’ He Niailes at Ilia Proa per la.

When Similes his mouth flies opeu like a pat sotfy trap and, were it not for his ears, which look like guide poats, he would be all mouth.

Mr. James Spencer, says the Chatta nooga Times, hit on a novel way to get at the approximate weight of a fly. His storo is greatly pestered with flies, and be recently brought into use the patent fly paper. Ho put out twenty-one of these sheets, being 12x28 inches eaoh, covering a surface of 336 square inches. In the evening, when they were filled, he took them up to destroy them, and notioed the increased weight, and struck with ourios ity, he put the paper with their load of dead flies in a pair of scales, and found that the twenty-one weighed exaotly seven ponuds. He then weighed twenty-one sheets with out the flies and found they weighed four pounds aud four ounces. Thus on the twenty-one papers there were forty-four ounces or two pounds and twelve ounocs of flies. This number of flies are taken probably two or three times a day. “ Now if you want to know how much a fliy weighs,’’ said Mr. Hponoer, "you will find that there is an average of twenty-five flies to tbo square inch on the paper. On one paper therefore which is 336 square ioobes you have 6,720 flies, and on the whole twenty-one sheets there are 141,120 flies; therefore if 141,120 flies weigh forty-four ounoes how much does one fly weigh ? It is a simple calculation, and those who have a curiosity to know can quickly find it out," Notlilug Strange. Missionary—Yes, I have seen some strange things while I was away. Why, when in Africa, I frequently saw tho na tives riding on ostriches. Jenson—Oh, that’s nothing strange, You ueed not go to Africa to see men go out on a foul. Visit the base-ball ground. Miauling.

Joao|»li Urttnilelineyer Telia Hie “Neullnel” Wlial He Known About Nellicumii nutl tbe Purcell Hi nen. Seligman, the new Dorado in White Pine Mining District, Nevada, is situated on the western slope of White Pine Moun tain, 14 miles from Hamilton and 34 miles easterly from Eureka. The approach to the town, whioh is at an elevation of 7,500 feet above the soa level, is through Irene City and tbe town of Eugene. The former is situated at the mouth of Big Canyon, otherwise known in early days, as Saw mill Canyon, and the lattor a mile or more above it. Seligman, which is situated at the head of the oanyon, is the main town, and the centre of great aotivity. It pre sents a booming appeaiance and has a prosperous outlook. Here is the bead quarters of Eugene N. Robinson, the "Na* poleon ” of White Pine, who at present lays out his plans under cover of a canvas tent, and who personally oversees and directs all the work that is going ou in mining, building and erecting machin ery in and about this new camp. He has 78 men—miners, mechanics and laborers—on tho pay roil, and will increase this number materially as occasion may require. The work now progressing embraces mining, grading, and erecting buildings for a very extensive concentrating plaut, sawmill for miutng purposes, blacksmith shop, boarding-house, housos for mechanics, miners and laborers, and Mr. Robinson’s private residence. Hon. S. Liddle is ereoting a store (and has a fine stook of general merchandise on the way to fill it), and other work is progressing, which adds greatly to the general lively appearance of tbe plaoe. Grading for the concentrating and other machinery is going along stead ily. Machinery for the sawmill, with an engine and one boiler is on tbe ground. The Ingersoll drills and tbe Krom rollers and concentrators are on tbe way. The mines, known as the Purcell serios, are situated about 1,600 feet above the town, at an elevation of nearly 9,000 feet above the sea level. Tbe ledge on which these mines are located has been traced by huge croppings for a distance of 3,800 feet. The Purcell No. 1 and Purcell No. 2 each show a strong ledge coursing to the northwest and southeast and dipping to the northeast. Mr. Robinson has lately purchased a piece of mining ground 1,500 feet long by 600 feet wide, that adjoins tbe the Purcell No. 1 on the northwest side, whioh, to all appearances, is on the same lode as the Purcell mine No. 1 and No. 2. Assays recently made from sam ples of ore that were taken from the vari ous workings on the lode give 20 ounoes of silver and 14 per cent of lead and upwards to 200 ounces of silver and 50 per oent of lead to the ton, and it is the general opinion that at present 50 tons of ore can be broken per day, and with increased facili ties and further developement at least 100 tons per day can be mined. After tbe erection of tbe concentrating plant has been completed, Mr. Robinson's iutention is to oommence patting through 50 tons of ore per day, and increase the number of tons as occasion may re quire. He is at present opening the mine at five different places, and the tunnel that baa already been started to cut the ledge is being pushed along by band drills us fast as possible. Power drills will be applied as soon as they can be got onto the ground. Water for all purposes has been supplied from his spring, ready for use when and where it may be needed; and in fact both wood and water, two things that are among the moat important in u mining enterprise, are plentiful, and al most inoxbauslive, whioh is due to Mr. Robinson's foresight in locating the spring aDd a great many acres of the best timber land iu tbe country. Wells, Fargo A Co., have promised to establish an express office at Beligman, an application for mail service, by way of Eureka, has already been forwarded to tbe Department at W&abingtoD, and the Western Union Telegraph Company may extend a line to bring this rapidly growing camp into electrical communication with the outside world. It is tbe general wish that Mr. Robinson will be as successful as hedescrves to be,and that bis untiring energy, nervo and good judgment will be rewarded witbja return of tnillioos of dollars to his company. That such a reward is one of the probabili ties of the future, is self evident in the hills of White Pine, particularly in tbe locality of the Purcell mines. If success attends this grand enterprise it will benefit, not only the vicinity of the mines, but the entiro State of Nevada. Beligman is the most active and thriving place for its age on the Pacific Coast. Joseph Gbandelsieyeb. Nulcid* of Johu liar ion. Times-Review: John Barton, or "Jack,” as he was familiarly known in this locality, committed suicide this morning by shooting. He was around town early in the morning, intending to take the stage for the Sixteen-mile Station on the Elko road, where he was to bo employed in taking care of stock for the stage com pany. He appeared to be in unusally good spirits, and took two or three part ing drinks with bis friends. Just prior to the departure of the stage ho disappeared from sight, and about an hour afterwards was found in a water-closet in tho rear of Fred Wilson’s stable, dead, with a six shooter firmly olasped in his right hand and blood oozing from the nostrils and left side of the head. But one oliambef of the pistol was empty. The body was in a setting position with the head inclin ing to tho left side, bat on and clothing not disarranged in the least. His left hand was resting upon his lap, across which lay the pistol clutched in the right. He had evidently ontered the dost for that sole purpose, and after seating him self placed the muzzle of the pistol into bis month and discharged the weapon, the bullet ranging upward, coming out at the top of the head. Deceased was a native of Germany, aged 41 years. He oamo to this seotion from California some 10 or 12 years ago, and at one time was engineer at the Leopard mill in Cornucopia, Do you want the best goods at the least oost ? ’ If so send to Weinstock A Lubin, Saoramento, Cal., for their largo Fall Cat alogue (free).

Up at Butte, Montana, a great deal of rivalry exists between tbe different shifts at the Anaoonda and St. Lawrenoe as to which oan make the highest run. The competition is sharp and amounts nearly to a craze among tbo miners, with hardly an exception. Tho tight is between the day and night shifts. On the night of July 27 the St. Lawrence hoisted G30 cars. Until then 003 cars had been the highest figure reached. Tbo boys of the day shift were eomowhat taken back at this news, bnt determined to beat the record that had been made. Tho Butte Miner says: “In the first two hours they had hoisted at the rate of 144 cars per hour, which was unexampled in this or any other camp, and at the close in tbe even ing 712 cars had been hoisted to the sur face during tho shift. Partof the time daring the day tbe cage was used taking down timbers as well as taking timber men from one station to another or to the surfaoe, as tbe enstom of the mine makes them take precedence over anybody or anything going on in the interest of the mine. It is hardly necessary to add that this groat hoist was done by doable deckers, or, in other words, two cere to a trip. It may safely be stated that this record cannot be excelled in this or any other camp.” Just What You Want. P. II. Hjul is just in receipt of a large lot of glassware and crockery.
