Hilton, who has been out at Houston for lour months, is hack iu Hailey. He worked less than month, all told, since he went there,, and rightfully complains that there is too much loafing for the amount of work. Parties whose claims were allowed at the January, 1885, session of the! Board of County Commissioners, can get their warrants for the same by ap plying at the Recorder's officp, on and after Wednesday afternoon, the 29th instant. For some days the Chinese laundry men have been distributing Chinese lilies to some of their customers. These lilies are expected to bloom about the period of the Chinese New Year, and when they do are supposed to betoken luck all around. Some of the older pupils of the Union Sabbath School, of this city, have formed a Reading Room Asso ciation, aud secured rooms in Bullion Block. This, the first practical step in the direction of.a free reading-room and library, may have a good result. C. W. Schwatnb, the cabinet-maker, upholsterer and general undertaker,has his shop on Carbonate street at pres ent, two doors East of Main. He is prepared to fill orders ou the shortest notice, and with satisfaction. Coun try orders solicited and given prompt attention. The commission to examine the books and accounts of the oounty offi cials for the past two years, is com posed of James H. Hawley of Hailey, Gr. L. Waters of Bellevue, and W. H. Douglas of Ketchum. Two first-class lawyers, and an Al bookkeeper! Now, lookout everybody! If there has been any fraud it will surely be dug up. John Gilman writes from Worces ter, Mass., that business, which has been very dull all over the East, is picking up. In Michigan good pine lumber sells at the mills for only %6 to $19 per 1000, while wheat is selling foi a song everywhere, and the price ot wheat does not repay the cost of raising. He is making arrangements to ship rails out here for his narrow gauge, which will certainly be laid be tween Gilman and Bullion, at least, tliis summer. Water Troubles. Much annoyance is felt around town, owing to the freezing up of many of the supply pipes. No mains are frozen yet, but the weather may remain so cold that even th< y will freeze. That would leave us without any protection against fire. House holders should turn off the waste-cocks at night, and carefully drain their pipes. Aria founty's Printing. At their January session, the Board of County Commissioners of Ada awarded the contract for all the coun ty printing and advertising for the year 1885. The sum agreed upon was 1250. If the Alturas Commis sioners let the work out to the lowest responsible bidder, they will effect a saving to the taxpayers of over #1000 per annum. Suffocated iu Red. Miss Hattie N. Colhath, of Lima, Ohio, a niece ot L. U. Colbath, one of the owners of the Ornament and other Wood River mines, was found suffoebted in bed at that gentleman's residence, in Salt Lake, a couple of days ago. Miss Colbath, on retiring 'fur the night, had filled her stove up with coal, left the door of the stove open, and closed the damper. Her death ensued by inhaling coal gas. Violin Bow Lost.

".Stamps"' Anderson tu Get In, Up to His Seek, In a Misunderstanding Where Seiuebudjr Is Hound to be Displeased. One of the knottiest questions that will puzzle the brains of School Su perintendent Anderson during his tenure of office, will probably be the condition of the Ketchum school dis trict. Last fall Mr. Brashcar was hired to teach the school, with the understand ing that he should have all assistant, as he had nearly 90 pupils, or double the number that any teacher could i!o justice to. The schoolhonse was likewise too small, and the funds ... , , 8choolho,,8< *' "" a881s,ant ' ond cord ' the Trustees could lint provide wood, lie would supply all free of charge. That is, he would di vide his salarv with his assist ant, and supp'y a house and procure cord wood besides. Colonel Brodhead, one of the two Trustees (another one having previously resigned), left the country about this time, und Mr. Judge promptly discharged the teacher, and hired another. That night there was a public demonstra tion, by parents amt pu-uls, at which Professor Brashear was indorsed, the lone Trustee denounced, and the Pro fessor requested to open a school— which he did the next day. The con sequence is that four-fifths of the pu pils are attending the Professor's free school, while a lonely few slid attend the public school. Mr. Anderson will therefore have to appoint two trustees, whose duty it will be to stiaiten out the district, so as to secure school benefits to all alike. DEER (REEK, j A Tributary that will Produce Much Ore, This Year. Deer Creek will certainly come to the front as an ore-producer, next summer. There arA only about 50 men working there, just now, but they are meeting with such success that the mine-owners will undoubtedly feel justified in greatly enlarging their forces. At the Narrow Gauge and Bannock group, some 20 mun are at work— some oil leases, others for wages. All are working in ore, and there seems to be a g od supply ahead of them. The Michael Davitt hill is showing up rich. On the Keystone claim, which adjoins the Davitt aud parallels the Snowfly, Messrs. Stapleford and Emery cut into two teet of good ore, last Friday, and aie uncovering more. The ore is good jigging, but will probably not lose much in concentra tion, as not over two tons will be re quired to make one ton of first class ore. The Montana is showing up im mensely. It will be remembered that, some months ago, the leasers were driven out, by water, from a winze which was already down 3U feet in a vein of gi'jiy copper. The owners thereupon started a tunnel 70 feet below the bottom of the winze, to drain it. After cutting to the ledge ail ore-vein varying from three inches to two feet in width was cut into, and a raise started. This raise is now up 35 feet, in ore all the way. As the tunnel, was run in ore along the vein 60 or 70 feet before the raise was started, it is evident that the orc-lody opening up is 70x100 feet, anyway, by a varying thickness. This is a bo nanza in itself. A stope 100 feet high of gray copper ore, would be a good thing for any mine. The Mount View tunnel is progress ing, in good prospects. On the Bon Ton bunches of ore are rewarding the leasers. ' Bolton's Deer Creek Springs. C. E. Bolton is overhauling his Deer Creek Springs Hotel, aud get ting it in readiness for the spring and summer trade. In addition to his two plunge baths—one for ladies, the other for gentlemen—he will soon hare two steam baths, and fonr bath rooms fitted up with tub baths. He will also enlarge his stable and make a roomy shed, to accommodate the rigs of his patrons. The place is grow ing in popularity, and will be a favor ite resort from this time on. be Nuts!

THEY STAND PAT, And Will Insist on $4 for a Day's Wages. Since the shutting-down of the Minnie Moor* and Queen of the Hills mines, the miners of Broad ford have, through committees, consulted with the miners along Wood River regard ing the situation. Last Saturday evening a delegation from the Broad lord Miners' Union went up to Bul lion, to attend a joint meeting with the Bullion Miners' Union. The re sult of tiieir deliberations lias not transpired; but this much is known, to wit: The miners have resolved to stand "pat" on the $4 a day rate of wages, and expect to be indorsed by every miner on the river. ALTI RAS'S FIRST SEAT. Nut was at Esmeralda, a l'lace Even Known To-Day. Some of the county wairants re deemed last year were so old that they were dated at Esmeralda, which was the first county seat of Alturas. This place was located on Junction Bar, about eight miles from Rocky Bar. But as there remained no inhabitants there, the county officials, one fine day, took it into their heads to move the county seat to Rocky Bar. So, taking up the county records, they rented a place at the Bar, which thus became the seat of the county govern ment. This is how they moved coun ty seats in olden times. Not a house now marks the spot of) the old county seat—Esmeralda—and even the old-timers remember very little about it. SC HOOL DISTRICT NO. 20. Report for the Month Ending January 10, I8S5.

White, of Hailey, is to be married soon to Frank Bound, a prosperous young cattle - grower whose parents live in Boise. Success to them. It is certainly colder in Hailey than on the prairie. It has scarcely frozen in the houses near Soldier. A few nights a little ice formed, but that is all. Elk are very plentiful in the hills overlooking the prairie. Driven down by the storms further up, prohably. The snow is not over 2$ feet on the level, on the prairie. On Little Camas, however, there must be six feet, at least. All stock on the pra'rie is doing finely o« hay, and will be in fine con dition for market in the spring. Mr. Heath has just killed three splendid hogs fattened on frosted wheat, and the pork is as fine as could 'be desired. ART SCH OOL. Mictira, Day ail Bragin, Penmanship, Drawing, Sketching, Etc.
