Jncob Honael's Njglem-A Krhcmn to I^or«*e Free Coinage—Weary Willie Waggles at a Hard rimw llnll—sie rh 'nical Troubles of the Poetry Ma ebine. Pony , March 10. —[Special Corre spondence.]—That part of Mineral Hill district, further up the hill than the Elling & Morris group, is also opening up finely, which is proven by the en couraging development of the Boze man, Proctor Knot, Wolf Tone and other mines. The Proctor Knot is 110 feet in depth, and the last assay from it went $970 in gold and 30 ounces in silver. When the snow leaves, which it is now doing rapidly, hoisting works will be erected on the mine. The Wolf Tone mine, near the above named lode, at the bottom of the.-shaft—now 105 feet deep—shows a crevice 7 feet wide, which -samples from $20 to $125 per ton in gold. It is owned by H. L.Frank and Miles Cavanaugh of Butte. Reynolds & Hatfield have just ship ped a car load of ore from the Old Joe mine, which means money in their pockets, for the antiquated Joseph al ways yields 'way up quartz. ' Laupher & Wilkie also lately ship ped a, car load of ore from the Boze man and have now another one nearly ready for shipment. It is rumored that they have ' struck it big" in the White Pino lode. This mine has been worked, on and off, for many years and has yielded a large amount of gold, some of the ore having run $200 per ton in Elling & Morris' mill here. In an interview with Jacob Housel he said his "Trade Dollar'' lode, be tween Norwegian and the Mound, is 22 feet in width, has two stf'-afts on it, one of them 32 feet deep and that it samples $10 in gold, 6 ounces silver and 16 per. cent, lead per ton. He has a good placer mine on Norwegian, which he works in the following original manner: "I take the gold out as I need it. If I happen to get out more than I want, I place it back in my gravel bank, which never suspends payment till I stop work, and where there is no absconding cashier to pack the gold off to Canada." If every gold miner would adopt Mr. H's plan government would, as a ne^®sity, soon have to give us free silver coinage. Mrs. Adkins and Edna arrived home from the capital on Tuesday. Mr. Is dell is expected on to-day's coach. Miss anna Bogart, a cousin of Jay Joyner, of this valley, came on from New York a couple of weeks ago, and expects to make Montana her future home. Soon after her arrival a pleas ant party was given, in her honor, by Mr. Joyner, to a number of his friends. W. C. McLaskle and family spent a few days last week at the hot springs, up south Willow creek. They stopped at the Walters House while there. Will Beckwith, who has been pound ing the drill on Mineral hill part of winter, is now on his ranch near Pony. He intends to put in several acres of potatoes and a large acreage of alfalfa this season. Will Parker, who has just returned from Helena, is with him. Chas. Luper came down the street last Tuesday with such a halo of hap piness surrounding him that it almost blinded the fellow who asked, "What's the matter, Charley." He said, "its a boy." On next Friday evening a "hard times" ball will be given at Harrison, where tattered clothes—a la Weary Waggles and Mrs. Dusty Rhodes—will be at a premium. As the present ad ministration has been fruitful in the production of costumes, appropriate for such an occasion, everybody will, doubtless, ber.there in full dress. The Pony Literary came to an un timely end a few weeks ago. All re gret its discontinuence, for our local musical talent, which took part in the entertainment, was among the best in the state; while the dramatic rendi tions, recitations, dialogues, tableauxs, etc., were excellent, and were not only a benifit, in an educational point of view, to the partocipants, but were also a source of instruction and pleasure to the spectators. If the society cannot get together again this season, and give us a few more performances, it is hoped, at least, that they may be con tinued next winter. This balmy weather has thawed out Pony's spring poet, as is proven by thé following lines which were picked up on the street. He, she or it had either been struck dy an icy breeze from the Tabacco Root range, before finishing the poem or the steam got so low that the poetical machine commenced to buck. Anyhow, here is the inspiration: "AM hail with j»y the beautious spring, The rrvbin. with his roundelays. The liquid notes of sinking larks. And ge'itle warmth ot sunny days; With budding trees and April showers. The harbingers of sweet May flowers. Oh, lo?ely Spring, your balmy wing Wafts zephyrs to my f»ce. And paints, with the great Artist's brush, Fair scenery, replete with grace. You—you—you shade with green, so very quick, The charming bunks of Willow creek ; And from the crest ol Hollow Top You—well-knock the snow off every pop. Oh Spring ! Oh spring ! Oh epiing ing— Kip! whizz!! there goes 1 lie darned ma chine. B. PULLER SPRINGS. Quit Feeding futile.— HimIInoii Tnxn rtermy.— Person*!.

His taxidermy work is some thing he may well feel proud of, as it is very artistic in shape and shows the expression perfectly. * The young people, who are so fond of taking buggy rides, ought to be more careful of themselves, we will not say any more this time, but look out for the future.

Captain Barker hasbnilta nice camp, with a good cellar, near his hatchery at Bemis, which overlooks the spring, and has a man on gnard night and day. He also has a number of traps set in the stream and on the bankB. In one the other night he caught a monster owl. In constructing his hatchery he ex cavated a place about 20 feet square in the bank, where he found a large boil ing spring which is connected with the original spawning ground. The tront have gone over tbe old bed into the house, where they are clearing off the ground and seem to prefer it to the open water. The captain will ship a few tront from other places and batch them in trays in the spring in the hatchhonse. Tho captain says that trout will go over dry laud to get to their spawning ground. The above statement is based on facts, as he and several of his work men a few days ago saw a trout come up stream to where it was filled with leaves. The tront tested a moment ot two, then started overland some three or four feet to open water. One of the men remarked that all that was needed for tho trout to reach the hatchery was to have a road swamped for them. The captain has also enlarged the old spring about one-third. He has a way of securing the trout for stripping with out any injury. He catches many 6hel drako by tho bead by scttiug a baited trap on the bottom of the stream. —Phil lips (Me) Phonograph.
