It is not un reasonable to suppose that, for busi ness reasons, the officials of the Eureka-Croesus Mining Company do not tell all they know all the time, but they have revealed enough to more than justify the belief that Eureka is soon to be one of the most important mining camps in the country. It is officially said that the head of, perhaps the most important min ing engineering firm in the world, has been here for several days and that the company has concluded an arrangement by which this firm is to pass upon all the metallurgical RICH STRIKE OF COPPER ORE AT COPPER OASIH Pete Carletti was in Eureka sev eral days this week from the Ferrari ranch in Pine Valley, where he is now located with his family. From Mr. Carletti it is learned that Wad ' Armstrong recently struck a rich body of copper ore at depth in the mine at Copper Basin which he has been developing for the past year. The new find is said to be most promising, with strong indications that the prop erty will soon be able to produce a large tonnage. Mr. Armstrong has a crew of five men at work, and is now bringing in a supply of pro visions and fuel that will permit of his continuing work throughout the Winter. Copper Basin is about 25 miles southeast of Palisade and 11 miles from our local railway.

Goes East to Be Married Miss Myrtle Roe of New York City, who spent the Summer in Eu reka as the private secretary of En gene Davis, left Monday on her re turn to her home in the East. In the performance of her duties while here the young lady, by her gentility and courtesy made many friends. We have been informed that her de parture from here was hastened by an unexpected call to France of her fiance, a captain in the U. S. Army, who will soon claim her hand in mar riatre. FnA Brwd Etmt Dty The Merry Aldo is now baking fresh bread, and it will be ready for delivery each day at noon.—Advt. problems involved in the treatment of the ores, and to design and con struct the mills. It is possible to treat ores of very low grade at a profit. This means that the millions of tons of what has heretofore been worthless ore will hereafter be handled at a profit. This means enormous riches for this district. The proven value of Eu reka-Croesus puts it at the head of the great mining enterprises of the country. Officials of the company say that the bonanza ore body in the 400 level of the Gatlin shaft is proving steadily larger and richer as the ore is being taken out. Two six-horse teams are now being employed in hauling this ore to the station, which speaks more forcibly for the revival of Eureka than all the talk that is being indulged in. AT THE SILVER CONNOR MINE I - Fred H. Dakin and H. H. Ray, I raining engineers connected with the Bulkeley Wells organization, are here engaged in making a thorough samp ling of the exposed ore bodies and computing the tonnage in the Silver Connor mine on the west side of Prospect mountain. Superintendent Bagg now has a force of 25 men developing and pros pecting on the 450-foot level of the Connor. In this ground it is under stood they have opened up several in teresting bodies of ore, and some of a shipping grade. Bad Check Case at Palisade District Attorney W. R. Reynolds was called to Palisade Thursday to be present at the hearing of a man under arrest there charged with passing an alleged bad check on Tony Siri of that place. It appears that Siri sold an automobile to the party for $700, accepting a check on an Elko bank for that amount.

Main Street Eureka, Nevada ————mmmmmmrnmmmm— EUREKA SCHOOLS OPEWED MONDAY Largo Attendance and Outlook Good for Succosaful Yoar to Both High and District Schools The familiar sound of the Eureka school bell last Monday morning was most welcome to the school children who had enjoyed a long vacation, and to parents generally who were glad to have their children enter upon their school duties again. It is always a pleasing sight to see the children, large and small, neatly dressed and with expectant and ani mated faces, answering the call of the school bell, to take up their studies and look forward to the pleasures that are, or should be, in termingled with school work. The school days should be remembered among the happy days of life, and things that tend toward bringing happiness into the students life should be furthered to the utmost. With a complete corps of teachers for all courses and with the schools well equipped, it is believed the large enrollment of students this year can be efficiently carried through their prescribed work. As s school of high standing soon comes before the public’s notice, and as the co-operation of teachers, par ents and the public in general is necessary to bring it to a high de gree of perfection, it is earnestly hoped the people of Eureka generally will manifest their interest in words of encouragement and Bhow their appreciation of the work accom plished by visiting and inspecting the schools. _ The Eureka County High and Dis trict schools opened for the Fall term last Monday with an enroll ment of 121 students. Thirty-two have already entered the High school, including the new students, with several in attendance last year yet to come in. The attendance in the District school is as follows: Grammar grade 19, Intermediate 37, Primary 33. The High School attendance is slightly below that of last year, but when all prospective pupils have en tered it is believed that it will reach more than last year’s average. The Intermediate grade has an in creased enrollment and additional' seats have had to be provided. Fourteen little tots have entered the receiving grade, which is more than can be comfortably accommo dated until more facilities have been secured. It had been found impossible to order the school supplies before the reopening, but this has so far not interfered with the work as ample material remained from last year to begin with. The State Text Book Commission made a few changes in the books re quired for the grades. The new adoptions have been ordered and are expected in a few days. Eureka County Boy Back From Service Phil Martin, another Eureka Coun ty boy. who has been doing police duty in the military service since the armistice was declared, and who re cently returned from France where he was sent with military prisoners from this country, was discharged last week from the service and re turned to Eureka by Friday’s train.
