Is It Hot Air? i.ast summer there were parties re oonoiteriug nearly all the creek valleys along the south side of Snake river, aud reports were frequently heard of proposed deals for ranches to be used for reservoir sites, but nothiug came of these schemes further than the begin ning of work on the Bruneau-Little Valley undertaking. But news has reached here that men are at it agaiu. William Bews, yesterday, brought the news that Mrs. Mary Crocherou had told him that she had made a bar gain to sell her flue Sinker ranch, through Guy C. Baruum, the Shoshone attorney, aud that Mr. Baruum had re cently written her that he would be there on the 17th instant to close the deal, the parties takiug the ranch for the purpose of takiug water ou exten sive tracts of laud lying between that place and the river. It is known that the ranch is so located aud closed in at the lower end, next to the Lambert place, that it could be readily and cheaply converted into a great reser voir. And there are several thousand acres of flue laud below it. But there have beeu so many schemes of this character proposed which have never proved other than hot air that the peo ple may wait for Mr. Baruum to con summate his deal before they take too much stock in it. Last summer it was the Stout ranch on Castle creek aud the Gilmore place on Sinker which were exploited by hot air men. up Correspondence DE LAMAR. A choice line of silk waists at Swaine & Helm's.

A Wedding, Going east on the Short Line on the 29th iust., when the train came to a stop at Mouutainhome, a din of tin cans and bells met the passengers' ears, Some one suggested that there must be a wedding party boarding the train. The writer at ouce remembered that the announcement of the wedding of L. .1. Weaver and Miss Mabel L. Payne had named that day, the latter, the bright aud accomplished editress of the South Idaho Herald, the daugh ter of our old friend George M. Payne, who has run a newspaper at Mountain home ever since the town was laid out, and she the treasurer of the Idaho PressAssociation,whom every publisher in the state was proud to know. When the traiu agaiu started we went iuto the Pullman and had no difficulty lo eating the couple by the rice was on the carpet aud on the lady's hat; and it was sure enough our young lady friend, who promptly aud proudly introduced us to a handsome young gentleman as her husband.

Grete received his commission aud took charge of the Silver City postoffice April 1, that be ing the beginning of a new quarter, he removing the office to his store, where he has had it fitted up in good shape aud very couveuiently arranged. Mr. Grete is a popular aud capable busi ness mau, and will, without question, fill the position with satisfaction to the community. He succeeds Mr. M. M. Getchell, who has occupied the pos ition for 11 years, the first three years in charge as deputy postmaster under his uncle, S. T. N. Smith, aud the last eight years as postmaster. D iriug all these years he has served the public with entire satisfaction, and been so accurate iu all his tiansactions that every postoffice inspector has had only words of commendation for his man agement of the office. Always courte ous and obliging, the patrons of the office had no complaint to make, except such as were cranks whom nobody could please. It is hoped and believed that Mr. Grete will prove a worthy successor. He is recognized by the community as a prompt, trustworthy busiuess man, correct and honorable iu all his dealings, aud always courte ous and obliging. But he will have to set for himself a high staudard to keep up to the mark set by his predecessor. For the preset.t, Mr, Arthur Fannin, who has had almost 20years experience as a postmaster iu a large eastern town and knows the postal laws and regula tions like a boos, is helping Mr. G rete to get the hang of the duties Mr. Getchell very graciously assisted in distribution of the mails for some days, thereby facilitating matters.

We are confident that Mr.Stev ens put iu his time to a profitable ad vantage while here. It will be bered that in early days, Rich Gulch, on the southwest point of Florida mountain, was the richest little piece of placer ground ever encountered in Owyhee. Pete Donnelly, now an old gentleman of leisure in Nampa, one of the locators. But above a cer tain point iu the little gulch the values petered out. During a generation fre quent efforts have been made to find the source of that rich placer, without results. Jack Hogan, who has located several good claims here and has been lucky, spent a summer prospecting for it. Bob Lewis and Hadsel Dye each spent considerable time searching for Baker, the tailor, almost went wild, thinking he had found it, But Henry Stevens, nothing daunted by all the other fellows' bad luck, borrowed his brother's transit, took bearings fr various points, last fall, aud after four days work decided where to begin dig ging for it. re mem was it. m He dug.
