HIGHLAND QUEEN AT STAMPEDEGAPHAS GE ORE' B ODY Leasers at the Highland Queen Mine in tbs H'-hlaad Stanmede di- . , r trict c ) tinue to got satisfactory re sult! from the development of the big ore body rpcently struck in the winze. This winze was sunk from the No. 3 tunnel at a point about 50 feet from the entrance. Average samples of the ore across 15 feet show $5.00 In gold, 12.5 ounces In silver and 5 rer cent lead, a slight improvement in the grade would en able the leasers to handle the entire shipping face, euch method of handl ing would be preferable to sorting on account of tha high Iron content of the ore whist renders such beneflic iation extremely dlflcult. Drifting will, be continued in the ore body and two products will be saved, the hteh grade ore showing galenr. and the balance saved for fu ture milling when suci 'acilitles are available. Should, however, an In creased amount of high grade ore be encountered the enure bed would be profitable, as lae iron content is uni formally high, Insuring a good prod uct for the .tnelters. The Highland ?ueen mine is owned by William H Pitts and Wm. Christian of Pioche and is surrounded by a number of propci ties of merit among wjhich may be mentioned the Mendha. Highland Mary, Last Chance and Hamb-irg mines. The favorable re sults obtained by the increased op erations in tie Highland-Stampede is attracting tbe attention of capital .nd much con uruotive work at rlenth is predicted bv the operators of this section of tho Pioche territory.

DEVELOPED ON LEASING BBS ItsW toasted TO seal in the delicious Burley , flavor Once you've enjoyed the toMted flavor you will at wyt went h Manager William H. . Pitts an nounces that a lease has recently been granted to S. T. Campbell and Will Lamb on the Hamburg property and the leasers have already com menced putting the property on a productive basis. A new strike of ore was mada in the fissure adjacent to the raise recently put up by the company and although the ore vein is narrow it is sufficiently high grade tobe profitably mined. The Hamburg Mine up to date had produced a large tonnage of gold silver lead ore. Operations were be gun in the early eighties, at which time a large bed was opened up above the 130 foot level, a fault was later encountered which apparently cut oft the ore and operations ceas ed until the increased price of silver in IS 17 encouraged development, shipping ore was again discovered and the eompany paid dividends amounting to $25,000 under the management of William H. Pitts and Superintendent A. L. Larsen. A raise was dr'ven above the tunnel level following the fault plane on its upward trend. This raise entered a body of low grade iron ore which was followed for an additional hundred feet. Small bunches of high grade ore occur in the fissure averaging $55.00 per ton in metal value. Ttie leasers are developing the territory adjacent to the fissure and the latest strike may open up into a profitable bed of shipping ore with any round of holes. ANOTHER CH STRIKE Nevada Silver Klondike Now Drifting On Porphyry Contact Last week William D. Price, who for the past 1 vears has been leasing In the Yuba territory as opened up by the Pacific tunnel struck eighteen inches of high grade gold silver lead ore la the bottom of the wlnse he had been drMng from the tunnel leel. A substantial production has oeeu made by Price from this lease and returns receivedfrom the flf.h car lot shipped assayed $7.00 In gold 1.4 in silver and 17.5 per cent lead, a total metal value at present metal prices of $74.30 per ton. The strike made last week f even better ore, averaging over $100 in value aa mined, persistent work, un der poor conditions ia a.m. -- B handlcappedbylack of caoital has enabled Lease Price toproduce $20,- 000 from this territory and should clearly demonstrate the wonderful possibilities in the deep development Of the porphyry dike contacts when backed by capital. Manager Maurice J. Fink who re turned Wednesday from a business trip to Caliente expresses himself as greatly pleased with the week's de velopment at the areat Western mine. Contractor W. E. Brodle ha three shifts of miners employed In driving the west drift which last Tuesday passed through the fault into the porphyry cantact Drifting will be continued on the contact in order to pick up the downward ex tension of the rich ore on the sur face and occurring along the con tact of the porphyry and the big iron dike. The drift Is now passing through highly mineralized mater ial and Colonel Fink expects to strike shipping ore with any round of holes. John Carter Anderson, consult ing engineer for the company left for Los Angeles last week and la expected to return at the end of September. All future work waa outlined by Mr. Anderson before he left and the contact waa encountered at thb point Indicated by his careful LINCOLN COUNTY Fl WILL BE HELD AT CALIENTE BIG TIME ASSURED SHIPMENTS WILL BE RESUMED BY MENDHA The Mendha Mine located In the mh.and district about 8 miles from' Pioche has recently been leased to Roy Bicknell, who, associated with John Lewis airoady has a car load of lead silver ore in th shipping bins. Development work Is at the present time being confined to the 800 fool levI of the in-line shaft where "at a point about 150 feet to the south, ore averaging $12.00 in gold, 30.5 ounces in silver and 25.7 per cent lead la being mined. This area of the mln has been subject to step faulting and previous work had not progressed sufficiently far to strike the bedding, which was closely adjacent to the main fissure system. the extensive faulting of the profit able ore, thus although a production of ever a million dollars has been made, ao dividends have been paid oy the company. Recent study of the geology of the district by John Carter Anderson, coupled with t he intimate knowledge of the mine pos sessed by the present leasers is re sponsible for the recent opening up of good grade ore. which it is hoped will eventually again place the prop erty on its previous steady produc tion basis.

The Lincoln County Fair which will be held September 29th, 30th and October 1st, at Caliente, Is ex pected to eel ipse all previous cele brations in point of exhibits and at tendance. The later date was chos en on account of the greater depend ancy that can be placed on the weather, which has sometimes mar red the previous fairs held at the earlier date. An excellent program has been arranged by the committee and the three days will be one con tinual round of pleasure. Farm products, blooded stock. needle work, Indian basket work, mineral exhibits, natural product3 will be on display to remind visitors of the wondertul resources of Lin coln County and every resident ef the County should be on hand to ex tend a welcome to the numerous vis itors, who wi'l attend the annual celebration. Horse races, baseball games, bucking contests, swimming and diving exhibitions will add va-' riety to the amusements provided and it is rumored that Caliente will be visited by a well known Miracle man from Los Angeles whose "touch" aided by a bath in the Hot Springs Plunge will make sick peo pie sing and dance. There will be no need to engar. rooms as the merrymak'nir ufil leave no time to waste In useless slumber, danclnsr will continue until the crowing of the prize poultry tells the participants that another day of joy has dawned. Features will In elude a towering Ferris Wheel. . troupp of beautiful dancers from the Hawaiian Islands, a shootine eall erv for the sporting fans, ham wheels for the family man and doll racks for the kiddies.

IS never did really work. Veterans of the late war will have the opportun ity to show the "stay at homes'; how to "shoot craps," Klondyke, monte, "21," pocker and a real Fan Tan game for the visiting Orientals. Numerous concessions will be lo cated on the "Modway" which will stretch from Culverwell Grove to Underbills and "prominent citizens" will have ample- - opf srounity tj "look 'em over'' and buck the elusive shell game. The Dacing will take place where ever the crowd is, in the Streets, in the old time "49" saloon with the fat professional en tertainers and in the well equipped Rex hall.
