Robert Bell, state mining inspector of Idaho, who was in the city recently, spoke in the most glowing terms of the outlook for the mining industry of our sister state, and to The Mining Review he said; "Idaho is advancing very rapidly, and tile indications are that the state will make the biggest showing in its history, tins year, in mining affairs. The re markable values ami ore bodies that are being unearthed in the gold camps immediately tributary to Boise, in winch a great deal of Salt Lake and eastern capital is being invested, prom ises to make Boise one of the leading gold mining centers of the state. Authentic reports from the Thunder Mountain country, .of the results of the winter's development of a number of small crews of men who have been actively engaged in opening up the mines, are such as to warrant the be lief that that section of the state will force itself upon the attention of invest ors by sheer merit. At Lewiston a new steamboat lias been launched which is especially de signed to operate the upper Snake ' river as far the Inonaha country, where some copper-gold deposits are being opened n P and a new smelter is going in. "The advance in silver and lead values has had a marked effect upon the Coeur d Alene mines, which are enjoying the most prosperous period of their exis tence. "Loom Creek, in Custer county, is maintaining the promise of last fall and has already attracted a considerable population of eager miners and pros pectors: a dozen new mining companies have been organized to operate in the district and a good deal of actual devel opment is being done with excellent results, while some very fine values have been brought to light. The Lost Packer has several carloads of $300 gold ore on the dump as a result of the winter s work with a small force of men, This lot of high grade ore will be l»ut on the Salt Lake market as soon ns tlie trail is open on the Custer summit. The district seems destined to experience one of the most substantial booms that Idaho has ever seen, during the coining summer. "The winter campaign in Lemhi has produced some remarkably interest ing and profitable results. Extensive bodies of good ore have been developed at the Gold Dust and other properties near Leesburg, and at the Dark Horse mine near Baker. Specimen gold and copper ores have been opened up in piantity during the past two months that is of sensational value, and this is sure to put these properties on the shipping list this season. At Indian Creek, the Ulysses continues to main tain its bonanza proportions. The new fifteen-stamp mill on this property was started up about the first of January, and lias since been turning out a profit of from $4,001) to $5,000 per month, with the ore bodies at t he mine swelling to such proportions as to warrant the addi tion of fifteen more stamps, and this will probably be done during the coming summer. At the southeast end of Lemhi county, in the Texas and Spring Mountain districts, the winter develop ments among the rich silver-lead mines of that section have been very satisfac tory, and it is a conservative estimate to say that tlie mines of these districts will send at least 1,000 tons of rich wet silver-lead mineral to the Salt Lake Valley smelters during the season of 100Ü. These mines produce an ore very similar in'composition and values to the Silver King mine at Park City, Utah, without the zinc, and they are in good demand here. "On tlie whole, the spring outlook for Idaho's mining industry was never so bright before, and I look for some very important development and discoveries as tlie season advances, and the most prosperous year for mining that the state has ever experienced."—The Min ing Review, (Salt Lake City, May 5, 1!IU3. ) _ State Normal Program.

We do not believe there is another community in America where people better appreciate good merchandise at the lowest prices, than the people who come into our store. We often hear customers say : 'T can buy these goods of you about as cheap as 1 did in the east. These are the kind of goods we har e been wanting, and bought where we came from, but I have never been able to get them until this store opened up." Sometime ago we had our an nouncements in this paper that we sold shirt waists for less money than the cost of the material, and our sales on these goods were far better than we antici pated. We are now selling the best "Perfect Fitting Clothing" nt lower prices than those of auy other firm.

The following is State Mine Inspec tor Bell s report oil the Teton Basin coal : "The principal coal development so far in the Teton field is the Horseshoe mine, which was discovered by Win. i Hill and two associates, and lias t)8cn > ;t Ve W b /^ m ., ItisSit V ated the head of Horseshoe creek, a small inters the 1 cton Hiver a . 3 soutU üf O"«* postofhee | is onened liv an n<lif fumml i 7 pusu.iiice ! if opened by an adit tunnel ! the coal all the way The .

' 'The tunnel is as straight as an am>w, and after getting through the surface soil the roof exhibits a clean, bright, black-banded vein of rich bituminous coal for the full length of the tunnel, with the exception of a thin parting of white, sandy clay two to six inches wide that traverses the center of the vein. "The floor or foot-wall foundation is a blue, compact slaty shale, and the hanging wall or roof is of white mica cous sandstone. "A sample taken across the vein at 150 feet in from the mouth lowing analysis: Moisture.......... Combnstable matter Fixed carbon ..... Sulphur........... Ash............... gave the fol Per Cent. ..... 3.30 ..... 35.58 ..... 49.33 ......44 ..... 11.35 Total........................100.00 'At this point in the tunnel the vein still shows the effects of surface influ ences, but at a point 400 feet in from the mouth of the tunnel and about 150 feet vertically under tlie surface tlie coal is firmer, brighter and of much superior quality and a sample at this point gave the following analysis: Per Cent. Moisture....................... 1.30 Volatile matter.................38.30 Fixed carbon.................... 58.57 Ash............................. 3.33 Sulphur..........................50 Total......................100.00 ''This analysis proves that the vein at this depth carries a very superior article of clean, high grade bituminous coal, containing a much higher percentage of fixed carbon than the average of tlie big producers of Utah and Wyoming. The exceptionally high percentage of fixed carbon shown by the last analysis is closely verging on to semi-anthracite, and it is my opinion that, unless it met with a fault, this vein would, if followed down on its dip, rapidly develop a super ior quality of free burning anthracite. "The Horseshoe mine is forty miles from the Short Line railway at St. An thony over a very easy road all the way. I was informed that tlie mine produced 100 tons of coal during last winter, which was sold locally to the farmers, and a good deal of it liauled to St. An thony and Rexburg when tlie sleighing was good, where it found a ready sale at $7 per ton. " Child Burned to Death. Hattie Richards, the 6-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F, D . Rich ards of Driggs, Idaho, met with a shock ing accident on May 9 and died on tlie morning of May 12 about 1 a. 111 ., after three days' suffering. The little one and some of the neighboring children were playing near a bonfire and the Richards girl got too near and her clothing caught fire. The fire being some dis tance from the house it took some time to notify the folks. In the meantime Hattie fought the flames with her hands which were also badly burned. Every thing was done for her that could be done but she passed away at the above mentioned time. One thing that makes the affair still more sail is that her father. Mr. F. D. Richards, on May 1, got stabbed in a quarrel with Mr. Lor enzo Jeffs. Mr. Richards' wounds, however, did not result seriously and it was on the day and at tlie time that Mr. Jeffs' lienring in the justice court was in session that the little girl met her fate, Mr. Jeffs was put under $3,000 bonds to stand trial in the district court. Mr. and Mrs. Richards have the sym pathy of all, and everything possible is being done for their comfort.

On Camas Prairie, in Blaine county, little grain is being sown, owing to fear of grass hoppers. Grass—Hay crops have grown well, and though haying will be begun later than usual, the outlook is for a good yield, except where grass was winter killed. Range grass is growing well in most sections, though somewhat back ward \ egetables—As other work becomes less pressing, more attention is being given to gardens, and later vegetables are being planted; early vegetables are doing well: potato planting eoutiuffes, early sugar beets are coining up well. .Stock The condition of stock contin ues to improve, though in some sections range grass is hardly sufficient; sheep and cattle are moving toward the sum mer ranges as rapidly ns melting of the snow will allow.

Q AMMANS OiMFECTIONERY. The Wages of Sin. Over at Preston reports say that a shameful state of affairs has developed. Some ten or twelvo yonng girls ranging from 14 to 18 years, are shortly expected to increase the population of that burg, for missdeeds committed during the past winter. As a result of this expos ure, about 20 young men and boys will be called before the bar of justice to answer to the charge of statutory rape Many are already' under arrest The whole town is torn up over the disclosures and sorrow and shame has been brought to many homes in conse quence. It is a sad case from which to draw a lesson, but the caso ought not to be passed by without calling some atten tion to the cause of it all. It comes about by the indiscriminate association of young people, where there is no safe guards whatever provided. Young girls and boys are permitted to roam about at will and all hours. If, with such li cense, there is any spirit manifest, to deviate from the narrow path, the chance is frequently offered, and the result is always the same, disgrace, dis honor mid loss of respect. Young people ought to take heed from tlie experience of those in Preston, and govern themselves accordingly. -Montpelier Examiner. Skinned Alive. To be literally skinned alive was the fate of Mrs. Julia Kahlert of Kootenai, Idaho. Mrs. Kahlert died at the Sacred Heart hospital last week, says the Spo kane Review. Pemliigus is a very pe culiar disease and literally skins the patient alive. It is rare and none of the physicians iu Spokane had ever seen a case before. The disease originated in a large blister. Other blisters form and, expanding, take the skin off tho patient. It is always fatal, as there is no known means to stop its dread march.
