The Mlow'uttf item is taken from a late number of the Philadelphia North American : "Advance in the value of mining stocks is assigned by Chief Justice James A. Miner of the supreme court if Utah as the ground for action which he has began in the United States district court in this city to recover f!l7,500 from Jno. F. Ander son. In his affidavit the chief justice states that Anderson, in September of l!Mll, agreed to sell and deliver to liim 10,11(11) shares of the stock of the Tononah Mining company of Nevada at an agreed price of H per share. He states further that 8,500 shares were duly delivered prior to Jan. 1, 1002, but that Anderson failed to make delivery of the additional t;,!00 shares. It is set forth in the affida vit that the stock lias increased in value from $1 to $lfi per share, and that the consequent loss sustained by the plaintiff was $07,.r00. Mr. An derson det ics that ha contracted to sell or deliver the additional li,500 shares of stock. Unskilled miners usually prefer heavy hammers with few blows, ex perienced miners a lighter hammer and quirk blows. The latter accom plish more work. In some Spanish- American countries the natives are often seen striking single-handed with a ten-pound hammer having a handle eighteen inches in length These men look with disdain upon a three and one-half pound hammer, an implement that they think is only lit for boys. Mining claims taken as placer must conform as nearly as possible t. the surveyed sulxlivisions of the land where they occur. Where the ground is unsurveyed claims usually extend from rim to rim that is, to a point mi each hillside bordering the gulch, :0 feet alxtve the water line, and for :!00 feet along the creek.

Where a vein has a very noticeable departure in dip from the vertical and the vein is intersected by gulches the apparent dip is likly to deceive, the locator. The true strike of a vein is right angle to its dip. If the true dip ran be ascertained, the strike can ! easily determined with sufficient accuracy. Kx-Governor Colcord, superintend cut of the Lapnuta- Pamlico g-oup of mines, on Monday put a force of men to work in Cottonwood canyon. They are driving a tunnel for the purpose of getting an increased wa ter supply. The senate committee has reported favorably on an amendment to the sundry civil service bill appropriating $100,0110 to the geological survey for the investigation of mines and mining in the United States. A large amount of machinery is now being shipped into Do Lamar from the railroad. It will not be ling now until the mines of that pluce will again be shipping bullion in large quantities. The people of Adel, Lake county, Oregon, lost a day in the shuffle last week and closed their stores and held church services on Monday, under tin? impression that it was Sunday. Francis 0.

A million dollar mining company for Nye county wan launched at Salt Lake January '24th, under the lawn of Utah, when the articles of the Puctolus Mining and Milling com pany were filed in the office of the county clerk ut that city. The com pany has a capital stock of 1,00(1, 000, divided into 1 ,000,000 shares of the par value of (1 each, of which '00,000 shares has been retained in the treasury to fie disposed of by the directors. The officers are as fol lows: President, J. I). Wood ; Vice- President, W. A. Sherman ; Secre tary and Treasurer, W. S. McCor- nick. The Hoard of Directors include Charles Mau, of Tonopah and Oak land, Cal.j Gurley Jones, Dave Long and J. A. Lee, of Pactolus ; Simon Hamburger, W. A. Sherman and W. II. Dickson, of Salt Lake. It will be remembered that Mr. Mau was among the very first to reach the district from here after the discover ies made by Lee, making the most complete examinations, and from the foregoing it is apparent that the ful lest development will follow. The new company's claims consist of the Cali fornia, Carl Frederick, Tailsman, Oro Hlanco, Pactolus, Gurley, Twylight and lihyolite lode claims, which are located ulniut seventy-five mile north east of Tonopah, in this county. Doom Some KiisIiions. The pilgrimage into California from which J. W. Langlev, the well-known broker returned yesterday, was not altogether for pastime. On the con trary Mr. Langley brought back with liim the proceeds of 10,000 shares Montana-Tonopah that were marketed by him on the Pacific's noisy shores ami for which he drew down over $10,000. It was not until Mr. Langley hail passed through Tonopah, where he tarried several days among its Ininanzas that the strikes in that proosition was made, the news having been forwarded to him in San Francisco. Always will ing that the other fellow should real ize a dollar on his investment Mr. Langley consented to part w ith a por tion of his holdings, retaining enough, however, to put him beyond all pos sible range of future need. Mr. Langley was astonished at what was shown him at Tonopah, and sees in it one of the most productive camps in the history of Nevada. It is under stood that Mr. Langley procured an option on a most likely group while in the Nevada camp, but to this lie made no reference. Salt Lake Tribune. He Wasn't Sick. Down in California, according to the Monterey Index, a couple of lioys failed to return to the schoolroom after recess untfl the other pupils had been seated for several minutes. When at last they made their ap pearance an audible titter went round the room and the young lady who wields the rod began to upbraid them for their tardiness. Then one of the unfortunates blurted out : "Well, I guess you wouldn't have come in either if you'd been in Sam my's place!" ' Oh! " exclaimed the fair tutor, "Was he ill?" "No; he wasn't ill, but he ripped his pants about a foot and hud to stay outside until I could pin 'em together." lloldln' His Own. ' Shure an' I got ut in th' most in nercent way possible.
