Seven thousand dollars, crude bullion, weic shipped lat«dy"from the new Davis mill to the Assay >«ffice.

It is how ever, variously estimated by experts to run from 30 to 60 ounces to the ton.

The following are the most forcible roasui s why you should spend your money at home.—Ex. lit, it is your home; you cannot im orjPfuvc it much by taking it away to sptnd or invest. 2d, Then is no way- of improving a place so much as by encouraging good nu i chants, good schools and good peo pie to settle among you, and this cannot the in of among you, this cannot be d.m«j unless y ou spend your money' home. 31, Spend your money at lnme, for there is where you generally get it. It your duty. 4ih, Spend your money' at home bc ause when it is ncccs-ary for you to get credit, it is of your town merchants you Imve tog t it. and thr'y must wait for the money. Therefore when you have the cash, sprnd it at home. 5tb, Spend your money at home. It ill make better merchants of your nier «ban's; they cm and will keep bctt«r assortments and sell at lower rates than if the only business tiiey can do is what is credited out. while the money goes to other places. 6th, Spend your money at home. Set the example now. Buy your dry goods, groceries, meats, and evc-rytiling at home, and yon will sec a wonderful change in the outlook of the pi ice; therefore, dc&l with your home merchants. 7ih. Spend your money at liomp. What do you gain l y going off? Count the cost ; see what you could haye done at home by letting your merchants have die cash. Strike a balance and see if you would not have beeq .just as well off, besides helping your merchant. 8ih, Spend your money at home. Your merchants are your neighbors, your friends; they, stand by you in sickness— are your associates. Without your trade they esnnot keep your business. No stores, then no banks, no one waiting to buy property to settle on and build up your place. Another New Departure. Having purchased the entire stock of J, B. & J. V.

Notwithstanding user tions to tbe contrary, with a knowledge of ibe above facts we pronounce the mill a success, not only in the treatment of the ore but also in a financial point of view, as it is paying a hand «orne profit upon the cast of mining and milting, al though running on second class ore.
