Reports come this week of terrific hot
weather in the states of tlie middle west.
The thermometer registered 110 near
Valley City, N. D. anil in consequence
of tlie hot, dry winds, tlie wheat crop is
said to be practically ruined. Similar
stories have been reported from other
sections of the Dakotas and Minnesota,
and even in the lake-bound and lake
filled state of Wisconsin the mercury has
climbed up to 100 and better recently.
The people in these mountains of Idaho
should be content with tlie character of
their climate, where they are exempt from
such weather troubles.
DE LAMAR ITEMS.
Mr. Middleton lias come here as ac
countant for tlie DeLamar company.
Tlie weather lias been very warm this
week, but nearly every day the «lust lias
been settled and the atmosphere cooled by
a shower in the afternoon or evening.
Tlie Sunday school closed for the
summer with a picnic last Saturday. It
was held up Pole creek, about a mile
from the road, and there were about thirty

children. Tlie children were hauled up

either the Silver or tlie DeLamar fans
have witnessed for some time.
A BRANCH RAILWAY
G. W. Warren, assistant toE. R. Place,
general manager of the "Golden Gate
Route," now completing the road between
Caldwell and Homedale, after staying
not long since, looking up the amount of
traffic which might be expected from this
section, returned here again Monday,
bringing his wife with him, but the same
day, the lady received adispatcli announc
ing tlie serious illness of her father, in
Manitoba ami left at once to goto him.
Mr. Warren stated while here that work
would be continued without delay on the
road to Sheaville and that men were now
working on a preliminary survey between
Sheaville, with the company purposing
building a branch road from that point
to DeLamar and Silver City, and lie had
come over to learn what encouragement
the citizens of DeLamar, Dewey and Sil
ver City would offer the company.
Of course all the mines of the district
would find such a road of immense advan
tage, in shipping out ore and getting in
lumber, machinery, fuel and supplies and
tlie business men should give every en
couragement possible to induce the com
pany to build it. The grade from Shea
ville to DeLamar is an easy and practi
cable one, as Captain De La Mar had
proven 1(5 years ago, by a preliminary
survey he had made when figuring on a
road from Caldwell to tlie mines he owned
at that time. The grade would be heavier,
but not impracticable for the remaining
eight miles. Nugget sincerely hopes the
company means business, and that we
may eventually see such a branch line
Tiie big storm that we had a few days
ago did a lot of damage to the roads but
was a blessing to most of the ranchers.
Victor Foreman lost the most of his first
Mrs. Wm. Adcock left here on Sunday
for Kansas City, Mo., where her daughter

A. J. Hintt is now driving stage between

Creek ditch will have men and teams at

Garnet but the ferry boat is out of com
mission with a broken cable but con

just tlie same.
The Henderson estate lias been amicably
Herb Allen has bought of John Hender
son his bunch'of horses.
The first crop of hay this year is much
better than a year ago.
IN OWYHEE COUNTY
Clarence F. Clemmons, manager for the
Standard Mining company of South
Mountain, arrived here on Monday, and
left here on Wednesday for the mines, ac
companied by R. M. Lewis. When asked
if he expected to begin work again upon
the properties of the company lie replied
that lie expected to do Some work to put
the mines in shape for inspection. This
is a well known group of mines, located
on the east side of the mountain which at
first developed a great deposit of carbon
ate of lead, but at deeper working is
making a fine showing of copper ore.
Joseph Meingassner, leasing tlie May
mining claim on the west side of War
Eagle of F. M. St Clair, brought down
samples of ore from the claim this week
looking like altered granite, which, when
assayed prove«! to contain $315 in gold.
Tlie assay was a surprise to every person
except Mr. St Clair, who had instructed
tlw leasor to watch out for just such stuff.
St Clair, who formerly owned the Ruth
claim in the same vicinity, knows the
nature of the numerous veins on that part
of the mountain tetter than any other
prospector, feels confident he lias found
Henry Kelioe, manager at the Standard
company's mining property at South
Mountain, for the Bagdad company of
New York, who have lieen working the
property under bond for its purchase, has
spent some days exporting the Home
stake property, four miles north of Silver
City. This is the property upon which
S. B. Longfellow, of Ohio, has expended
a considerable sum, while holding it
under bond from the owners, Messrs.
Adams and Schlaack, anil upon which
Mr. Schlaack now has a five stamp mill
nearly completed. Mr. Kehoe, a well
known mine expert, has been exporting
the Homestake property, it is understood,
iu tfie interest of the Bagdad company.
He went out Tuesday morning.
The new Potosi mill is rapidly approach
ing completion and it will now be only a
few days until the noise of its stamps will
be heard in the town. The cement floors
have all been laid ; the pans and settlers
are all completed ; the battery of stamps
is almost reaily for work ; the motor is in
position, and all now requiring to be
done is putting up the shafting, pulleys
and belting, to make jt one of tlie most
complete modern mills of its capacity in
this district. As soon as it is in operation
Nugget will endeavor to give a detaileti
description of this modern plant which
means so much for tlie mining industry
of the district.
WENNERSTEN M. CO.. Ltd.
Erie Smith, a well known mine shift
boss for the Trade Dollar company, has
been employed as foreman for the recently
organized Wennersten M. Co. Ltd., ami
will at once put a crew of miners at work
driving a tilBnel east from Jacob's gulch
to cut the mines under tlie summit of the
ridge. Permission has been obtained
from Robert Noble to run this tunnel
through a portion of his ground. Sub
scriptions for the stock have been taken
at home, sufficient to insure the comple
tion of the tunnel and work will be pushed
on it as soon as track and timbers can be
put on tlie ground, which Messrs. Wen
nersten and Morgan went to Boise, yes
terday, to order. A survey made for this
tunnel makes its length 500 feet.
After remaining in Boise a brief time,
Mr. Morgan will proceed to London,
where arrangements have been made for
the disposal of the remainder of the stock,
The Banner mill continues to run satis
factorily, ami with better results since
they have gotten the ore piled in the drifts
before the mill was started out of tlie way
and a tetter chance to assort out the
waste. They are now putting through
more than 20 tons per day. A clcan-up
will be made at the end of the month,
but it is not thought that it will amount
to liiTtcli or any more than sufficient to
The mine is now how
ever in better shape and better results are
anticipated from this time on.
Work has been commemœd on the
mouth of the mill level tunnel getting it
in shape for the power drills when they
arrive, and it will be pushed ahead as
fast as possible.
