To this end they are gatli ering up all of the members of the feline tribe they can find, with the intention of feeding them until spring and then turning them loose on the destruction r»f squirrel*.

Lorinda Allen, born September 6th, 1834, died at Garden City, Utah, Nov. 1st, 1897. The deceased with her husband arrived in Salt Lake city in 1862, on their way to California. After resting a short time, they concluded to stop for the present, and finally they con cluded to make it their future home. Mrs. Allen was for many years president of the Garden City piimary association and a faithful teacher in the Sabbath school. A short time before she died she made a request that A. Galloway should be the speaker at her funer al services, which was complied with. The speaker read the first four verses of the 7th chapter of Ecclesiastes. He also made a few quotations, from P. Pratt's "Key to Theology.'" A large turnout of the citizens of Garden City and other places attended the meeting and quite a large concourse of friends of the decensed accompanied her mortal remains to their last rest ing place. Elder Robert Cslder pronounced the dedicatory prayer 1 Rustic. as to assessment 'CUorft. The land office in Spokane is in receipt of two opinions from the commissioner of the general land office relating to the assessment work on mining claims and work necessary to be done to secure patents, that apply to Idaho mines as well. The latest opinion is in reference to assessment woik on claims that are contiguous and held in common and is as follows: "While the annual assessment work required for the maintenance of possession under Section 2324 United States Revised Statutes may be placed en one of a number of contiguous mining location* held in common and constituting one entire claim, yet the amount expended must equal $100 annual ly for each of the locations so held and woiked in common."/ There has been considerable dis pute over this proposition in con nection with the securing of pat ent. The general land office has held that $500 worth of work is all that ie necessary on a group of claims to entitle the holders to a patent. Some have been of the opinion that it was necessary to do $500 worth of work on each or for the benefit of each claim in a group. The opinion recently re ceived from the commissioner is as follows: "The conclusion is apparent that an expenditure of $500 on one more of several contiguous mining locations embraced in one applica tion for patent is sufficient if made for the convenience of working or developing all the claims included. This must conclusively appear, however." or This places the matter where it is often cheaper to secure a patent than to do one year's assessment work on a group. A group that comprises 20 claims would require an expenditure of $2000 worth of assessment work for one year, while $500 worth of work would he sufficient to secure a patent if it could be ebown that it was done for the purpose of developing or conveniently working all the claims. Both decisions were ren dered by Commissioner Binger Hermann. Roy«l maku tb* lood pan. &AKIN 0 POWDER Absolutely Pur* «mi wKiwa rowott cp,, MW yowl Ubcs Dave Hrrlveö.

The ten national banks in the state of Idaho make an aggregate showing equal to the best of any section of the United States, as ap pears from the reports received by the comptroller of the currency in response to the call for a statement of their condition made last month. The average reserve held ie 40.48 per cent. The total resource* of the ten banks has increased from $3,360,739 in July last te $3,505, 448 at the present time. That the banks are doing more business is shown by the increase in amount of loans and discounts from $1,* 036,214 to$1,066,699. Theamount of individual deposits in the banks has increased from $2,168,100 to $2,329,344. The lawful money re serve in the banks is $276,092, of which $214,634 is specie.

In July last the ten banks had on hand in gold coin $230,197, whereas they now have but $85,409 in the yel low metal. The Idaho banks have due them from other national hanks, not re serve agents, $259,160; from state banks and bankers, $176,953; and from approved reserve agents, $644,733.

After gazing over it for a while the opinion molder threw it down in disgust. "What's the matter?" asked the waiter. "Why," said the quill pusher, "there are a dozen things on there I don't want and don't like." "Well, why don't you select what you want? The next man that comes in may want some of the articles you don't like, and he may not lixe what you do. You see we have a varied bill of fare, so all may select what they desire, and thus please all our patrons," said the waiter. "Oh, I hadn't thought of that, said the opinion molder. "You see I run a country newspaper, and every week tome subscriber gins me up for publishing articles he says are ef no interest to him, and only put in the columns to fill up.
