One of the most pleasant

Some sixty guests were pres

Although the electric lights
were not burning, the matter of
illumination had been provided
for by -a number of powerful
gasoline lamps, which filled the
house with a beautiful white
Many new and novo, games
had been provided by the host

.Perhaps the most unique game
of the evening, at least to ''ye

Sheriff Froyd observed a pack

on, the stage ready for transpor

the driver of his knowledge.
No attention being paid fo his
suggestion to refrain from haul

this city and notified Marshal
Urie, and together t the two of
ficers kept a cbntinual watch on
the express office until the party
to whom the liquor was address

In due time a young man call

tons, which was an 'tinerease 'of
about 15 per cent over the 1911
production. 1?rom minee in the
Tintic district an increase of 14
percent in the ore, production
gave a total output of about
400.000 tons, which was mined
from the Centennial-Eureka, Iron
Blossom, .and 30 other- mines.
The tonnage includes much low
grade (Jump material an'dj about
8,000 tons of. zinc carbonate and
silicate ores averaging about 34
per cent'of zinc from 10; mines,
which will likely continue, to
ship during the year; 1913.' Al
though it whs previously known
that zincore existed in the Tin
tic mines, was a surprise to
many operaters to find 'such ex
tensive bodies of the' ore in the
old leadora stopes. At park City
the ore output was about- the
same as in 1911 and aggregate
296;000 tons, of which 42,589 tons
were shipped direct to the
smelter and the remainder
milled, producing about 43.500
tons of lead and zinc consen
trate. The total gold output was a
bout $4,300,000, a decrease of 8
per cent from the 191JU produc
tion, due principally to the
greatly detnihished output of
the Mercur minee and to the
smaller shipments in the Tintic

in the Park City region.
The copper production of 1912,
amounting to nearly 150,000,000
pounds, was an increase of about
2 per cent over the, output of
1911. The increase is credited
chiefly to the Bingham district.
The lead output, aggregating
about 140,000,000 pounds in 1912,
was2i per cent greater than the
output in 1911. Tho increase is
partly accounted for by the fact
that more lead ore was shipped
from Tintic and more3 lead con
centrates, from Park City than
in the previous year.
The production of zinc, figured
as spelter, amounting to about
16, OQO, 000 pounds and is about
13 per cent less than the figure
reported in 1911. This decrease
is due largely to a falling off in
shipments 'of. blende' concen
trates from Park City. The
