Better Tha.n Gold.
William Bonner, Ira McGary and L. D. Phelan have made the richest discovery of precious metal ever found in the state, says the Grangeville Standard. Last May, on the south fork of the Salmon river, near Frank Smith's ranch, and'about 14 miles from Warren, they unearthed a metal that is known as molybdenite, or sulphide of molybdenite. The value of the peculiar metal, as secured from the government prices metals, is $2.75 per pound, or $5, 500 per ton. The discoverers be lieve they have many hundred tons in a very close distance from the surface; they have a ledge 35 feet wide and have traced it a distance of 7,500 feet along the side of a steep hill where the discovery was first made. For 40 years the ledge has been exposed and trampled over by prospectors who never for a moment dreamed of its value, the principal use of the metal is as an alloy in the manufacture of gun metal, and this with one other mine are the only two finds located in the United States, which owing to the scarcity, makes the value so exceedingly high. The contact in which molybden ite is found is known as dyrite and graphite, and contains a large per cent of brassy looking mineral composition, carrying pyrite and marcasite, known as sulphides of iron, making the discovery a smelt ing proposition of such a nature that no difficulty will be v on precious ever encoun tered in the extraction of the min eral. The molybdenite is very soft and can be easily scraped off with the finger nail, which fact, owing to the large body of ore, will make it an exceedingly easy property to work. There has not been extensive work done as yet, but the gentle men who own the property departed for there last Sunday, prepared to open up the claim by fall so that more can be learned of its value. The metal is so uncommon that the progress of developing the mine by the owners will be watched with unusual interest, doubt this, as many other discov eries, will further prove the un limited wealth of Idaho county. There is no A Lawful Fence in lda.ho. The following is said to consti tute a lawful fence under the laws of Idaho: If made of stone, four and one half feet high, two feet base and one foot on top. If a worm fence the rails must be the same height as for stone. If made of posts, boards or poles, the posts must be firmly set in the ground not more than eight feet apart, with not less than three six-inch hoards, not less than two-inch piles at the small end In a leaning pole fence there must be four poles. If wire is used the posts must not be over sixteen feet apart and one substantial stay must be placed between posts, with not less than two barbed or three plain wires together with one board, rail, block-wire or pole. The wires must be well stietched and securely fastened to the posts. All fences must be at least four and one half feet high. The board, pole or block-wire must be placed at the top of the fence. If the pro visions of the law regarding the barbed wire fences are not complied with, the owner of stock injured by such fence can recover damages from the owner. Working for Diamondfield Jack. Malcolm Mclean, of this place, who several weeks ago went to Diamondfield, Nevada, in a letter to his wife states that he is at work for Jack Davis ("Diamondfield Jack") in one of his mines and is getting $6 per day. They recog nized each other at once. Davis worked ni Banner years ago when Malcolm was there. Diamondfield and Columbia are four miles apart and connected by tents. Bullfrog is a tent town with 4000 inhabi tants. Thermometers in Diamond field register 100 in the shade.— Idaho World. Value of Newspaper Space, Advertising by use of placards, posters and simlar means has its advantages, but it has been dem onstrated beyond peradventure that the expenditure that brings the best and most lasting results comes through the medium of the newspaper. There is a freshness about the newspaper that cannot be found in the poster or dodger, while the regular appearance of the advertise ment together with the features of the newspapers, impress the readers as other forms of advertising can not. That this view of the value of space in the newspaper is correct is shown by the liberal use of the newspapers by allot the successful merchants, who contract for large space and expend many hundreds of dollars in this medium. Everybody reads the papers, and that is the secret of the use of their columns by men who wish to sell their goods. For Sale. Ranch and station on Sinker creek. For terms see Mrs. M. E.
