Bltxck Sa.nd Experiments
Are Pronounced a. Success Nugget has always been cautious about publishing the claims which have been made for processes for saving gold from the black sands in Snake river. It copies the fol lowing, however, from the Lewiston Tribune, for experimenters in that • line to consider: A successful process for extracting the values from the black sand of the Snake river bars has been discovered by .lellum & Jones, local assayers, who have been carrying on experiments for the past several months. Early last fall an experimenting plant was in stalled on lly-Bar, on the upper Snake river, and numerous experiments have been made during the past winter and early spring. The process and means of operation have been improved from time to time until the firm is now pre pared to pronounce the process a suc cess. The black sand and gold values are separated from the gravel by sluice boxes and concentrating tables and the values afterward extracted by the cy anide process. It is probable that the firm will instull a plant on the lower river, and it is believed that within a few years active mining operations will be inaugurated on all parts of the Snake river where the black sand de posits are found From the experi ments already made it has been dem onstrated that where values exist to the amount of fifty cents per cubic yard the new process can be operated successfully. Just listen to this piece of ''pret ty writin','' taken from the columns of "the only paper in Boise which dares to print the truth:" In speak ing of a contemparary it says: "It is hand and glove with the whisp ers which block the echoes in the corridors of progress.' per Smith is not an Irishman 1 And Clip Only a few days now until the first centennial celebration held on the Pacific coast, will be in full swing at Portland. President Jef ferson made his fifteen million dol lar real estate purchase from the French, one hundred and three years ago, and started Captains Lewis and Clark to look it over. The purchase justified a grand world's fair celebration on the east ern edge of the bit of land secured by the far-sighted Jefferson, and only of a degree less importance is the celebration to commemorate the arrival of his agents on its western boundaries, which is now about to begin. Let's all go down to the banks of the Willamette be fore the show is over, to help us realize how big a speculation that purchase has grown to be. Pointed Pa.ra.gra.phs. So many of us have another guess coming. If things were only as good as the samples. Town people should do less quar reling, and country people should use better seed corn. A man who has all he knows at his tongue's command is a prodigy or he doesn't know much. Men are always trying to kill two birds with one stone. They will do pretty well if they get one. Girls prefer evening parties which the men can attend, but married women prefer afternoon parties which bar out all men. When a girl is two her father is pleased when she goes into his pockets when he comes home nights, when she is ten he is irri tated, and when she is thirty he gets mad.—Atchison Globe. Your Work. Do it cheerfully, even if it is not congenial. Do it in the spirit of an artist, not an artisan. Make it a stepping stone to some thing higher. Keep yourself in condition to do it as well as it can be done. Endeaver to do it better than it has ever been done before. Make perfection your aim and be satisfied with nothing less. Do not try to do it with a part of yourself—the weaker part. Recognize that work is the thing that dignifies and ennobles life. Regard yourself as a coworker with the Creator of the universe. Accept the disagreeable part of it as cheerfully as the agreeable. 1 Choose, if possible, the vocation for which nature has fitted you. Believe in its worth and dignity, no matter how humble it may be. Remember that work well done is the highest testimonial of char acter you can receive.—Success Magazine. Advertised Letters.
