THE EUREKA SENTINEE
-=— - ——' ' ~~ ' i . - - -» ESTABLISHED 1S7»__ ^ EUREKA, NEVADA. APRIL 15, 1922 PUBLISHED AYS IMTMH HI HUE DEVELOPMENTS It is reported that a new and Im portant strike of ore was made last Sunday at the bottom of the incline shaft being sunk from the 400 foot level of the Catlin shaft on the Eu reka-CroesuB Mining Company’s prop erty on Prospect mountain. Nothing definite can be learned here from local officials, as the com pany has ordered that all Information regarding developments In the mines be given out only from the principal office of the company In New York. It is learned that this new Incline shaft has been sunk 500 feet from the 400 level and has now attained a greater depth than any other mine workings In the Hamburg limestone belt, and where the present ore strike was made in the bottom of the shaft. Is said to be about under the old glory hole In the Dunderberg work ings. The ore in the new strike Is said to be in the nature of the ordi nary Iron carbonate of the camp, but somewhat similar to the sandy car bonate peculiar to the Windfall mines. It Is said to be very rich and to go over 10 ounces In gold. The new discovery Is said to have In creased In volume until the bottom of the Incline Is now all In ore. This new strike Is considered the more Important because It has been made at greater depth than any ore has ever before been developed In this break of ground in the Hamburg limestone, and will lend encourage ment towards the exploration of the entire Hamburg belt of limestone. Apart from the new development, this company Is reported as extract ing ore from several places In the old workings that have been developed during the Winter, and the bins of the company are now said to be brim full of ore of a shipping quality that has been accumulating since last Summer, awaiting reasonable rates of transportation and lower treat ment charges. IIIGHH IS STILL I* MIDST OF HURD FINES The Ely Record Is In receipt of a letter from A. B. Llghtfoot dated from Gaines, Michigan, which gives a rather gloomy outlook of the busi ness conditions in that State. He says that business does not seem lo have recovered. He is quoted as fol lows: "In fact. I look for a dull season In manufacturing. The Chevrolet factory Is running at nearly full ca pacity, but the Bulck Is down to the minimum, Flint has been In had shape for nearly a year and It Is "get ting" the business men there now. The city was boomed to the limit and is now reaching the Usual results of such booms, Detroit Is In much the same condition, tho' Its residents look forward to considerable building activity this Summer, which will help some. A good many farms were sold at high prices on land contracts and are now being turned back. The selling price of land has fallen a good deal. Taxes are high and that Is the Item that strikes a fellow very hard, but at that the farmers are the best off of any class and have lost the least. Michigan la now bonded so heavily that there la no chance to re duce taxes for a long time. How ever, l do not believe this country has suffered so much as the west and It will pick up quickly If the wheels can be set to going again.” Mr. Llghtfoot was a former prin cipal of the Eureka County High and District Schools and with his family made Eureka his home.

KA1H OF MRS : mm ima Esteemed Woman Attacked With Pneumonia and Quickly Huorumbs To the Disease Following a three days illness from an acute attack of double pneu monia, Mrs. Armlnda Noatrosa, wife of D. E. Noatrosa of Eureka, passed away at - the family home here at 4 o’clock Friday morning. Her death is a particularly sad one, for It came suddenly and without warning. Dr. Brennen was called to attend her Wednesday, when symptoms of pneu monia were apparent, and at once he diagnosed her condition as alarming, as both lungs were attacked. From the beginning the disease could not be checked, medicine being of no avail. Relatives and friends felt that her time had come and no human power could save her. Another grev ious feature In the family is the Ill ness of Mr. Nostrosa’s mother, known as Grandma Noatrosa, who was re moved from her home some weeks ago to that of her son to be taken care of. She is confined In her bed, and being 88 years of age, her life nows hangs on a thread. Mr. Noatrosa and the family have the sincerest regret and deepest sym pathy of the comunlty in their af i diction—the double sorrow that has come upon them. The deceased wife and mother will be sorely missed in the home, and It is beyond one to offer words that will be consoling and comforting to them. Mrs. Noatrosa was an amiable and cheerful char acter, one that the world would be better with more like her in It. She was born at Treasure Hill, White Pine County. Nevada, but had lived in Eureka since her early child hood. Besides her husband she leaves four sons, Charley, Dan, Frank and Gilbert, one daughter, Armlnda, and a sister, Mrs. Nellie Dees of Los An 1 geles, California. She was 47 years : of aee.
